Since appearing on”Mad Men,” Abigail Spencer‘s career has been picking up steam. So has the casting for McG‘s This Means War. With Cowboys & Aliens under her giant Western belt buckle, she’s ready to join the action comedy. The film stars Chris Pine and Tom Hardy as two friends who both fall for Reese Witherspoon. However, they are both super-spies and their duels for her affection reduce the city to rubble.
Spencer will play Hardy’s ex-wife. Angela Bassett will also appear as the boss of both Pine and Hardy. I like this cast. And the premise could be fun. I don’t know what to expect from McG, so I’ll hold my judgment for the time being. I’m just so fearful we’re going to see Chris Pine surfing on a jet. Or worse, riding two sidewinder missiles like skis. (THR)
