What news is this? Brendan Fraser has signed on to a potentially good movie? In fact, it is so. George Of The Jungle has joined Neil LaBute's next film, Seconds Of Pleasure.

We don't have plot details for Seconds but assume it's based off LaBute's 2004 short story collection of the same name. Is this his attempt at Robert Altman styled filmmaking?  I can get behind Fraser's casting in this if that is the case. He always works well in ensemble pieces. Especially as morally gray characters.

Rather than starring opposite a CGI dirt tornado or a Canadian stunt guy in a bear costume, Fraser will star opposite Kristin Scott Thomas. Colin Firth and Ed Harris are also considering joining up. There's no word yet on a Pauly Shore cameo but that news can't be too far off. It can't be. (Deadline)
