Andrew Niccol is scooping up all the pretty people for his now untitled sci-fi film. Olivia Wilde is the latest hot, young thing to join the cast that already consists of Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy, and Vincent Kartheiser. Wilde will play Timberlake's hot mom, in the film about a society where the aging gene is turned off at age twenty-five. Hence, old and gross people can appear twenty-five forever.
Originally called I'm.mortal, the film is now currently untitled. That's good news for sh*tty trip-hop bands in Florida who may be in need of a name. (EW)
Blowing out magical birthday candles, touching an ancient artifact, pissing off a gypsy, and wanting to bang Olivia Wilde so hard. All are now acceptable catalysts for the plots of body swapping comedies. Wilde just joined the cast of David Dobkin's The Change Up.
In the film, Jason Bateman plays a married man who switches bodies with his slacker best friend Ryan Reynolds. Wilde plays a co-worker of Bateman and is cited as a reason for the body swap. I assume that means so that he could bang her. I guess it could mean something else, but this is what makes the most sense to me. It's the perfect plan, and I'm sure guys everywhere are going to try to pull it off themselves. Now Hans, here. Hold this live electrical wire at precisely the same time as me. (Deadline)
Like this but nakeder.
We've been writing about Cowboys & Aliens for a little while now, but haven't really formed an opinion on whether or not we're looking forward to it. Until now because Olivia Wilde is appearing naked again. Adam Beach (who plays Nat Colorado) was recently interviewed and began describing the on-set experience of Olivia Wilde's nude scene.
"We just finished shooting Olivia Wilde naked in front of a bonfire in front of 500 Apache warriors. That was beautiful. You won't get to see what I saw, but you'll get a glimpse."
First of all, that's going to make things awkward for Adam at the wrap party. Secondly, big deal. We'll probably only get to see her back and maybe a slightly moon-lit ass. Thirdly, I'd call standing naked in front of 500 Apache warriors a pretty intense experience. But if you're Gary Busey, you'd call it Tuesday. (Jam)
The first event I caught at this year's Comic-Con was the Tron Legacy panel, moderated by Patton Oswalt, a favorite comedian of mine and yours. I'm not allowed to show you the footage that was screened, although you can read my brief description in my Thursday's adventures recap, but I have video of the panel discussion. You can also check out the awesome new trailer here.
All of the actors were in attendence (for a third year in a row), including Garret Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Michael Sheen, and Jeff Bridges, as well as director Joseph Kosinski. They enlighten us on the process of making the film, the flashy difference between Tron Legacy and Tron proper, and how Olivia kicked-ass in high heels. You really shouldn't need much more convincing to see the film when it opens on December 17, 2010.
The Tron Legacy panel at Comic-Con turned nerd boner-sacks inside out with its awesomeness. For those of us who didn't meet the maximum weight requirement to attend, Disney dropped this new trailer. I haven't seen anything this sexy since the last trailer. In this one, Garret Hedlund plays Cyber-Jesus as he battles his father's Doppelganger and creations while on a mission to find his real dad. Just like me and my stepdad. You're not the king of me, Roy!!
It all looks very cool and, yes, there is a light-jet. Didn't see that one coming. Then again, I don't work for a toy manufacturer.
TRON LEGACY OPENS IN 147 DAYS, BUT YOU CAN SEE THE TRAILER BELOW.
ATTENTION! ATTENTION!! There is a new picture of Olivia Wilde on the Internet. Normally I don't post banners, but when the key ingredients are Olivia Wilde, tight clothing, and a Bai Ling wig, it's my duty to pass it on to you so that you may gawk until your Saturday reaches the appropriate hour to begin drinking.
Heyuguys premiered the seventh Tron Legacy banner that shows Olivia poised to throw the sh*t out of a Sharper Image White Noise Machine. This is exactly why they can't have nice things in the Wilde household.

She may be Thirteen in ‘House’, but she’s One to many.
Jon Favreau tweeted this little morsel from the set of Cowboys & Aliens to get your appetite so whet your superiors are wondering why the mop handle in your grip is covered in drool. Though can we really be sure this is official just because the director of the movie released it?My overbearing paronia insists that the pic could be a clever marketing campaign by Disney for Toy Story 3. If Woody was flesh and blood THIS is how he would look, always hauling a backlight around with him so we could never be certain of his identity. Oh no, you're not pulling the wool over my eyes, Lasseter. First the subliminal Nazi propaganda shorts before the main attraction and now this? If you weren't so damn awesome at what you do I'd have a good mind to shake an angry fist at your visage. That and my angry fist is buried deep in a tub of animal crackers at the moment. I know there's an elephant in here somewhere…
I'd rather stop writing about casting news for the satirical comedy Butter, but they keep landing hot chicks so I must oblige. Last week Ashley Greene came aboard to play a naughty schoolgirl, and now Olivia Wilde is set to play a tattooed stripper. Why is this film becoming more appealing with each passing day?If you're not already aware, the film centers on an Iowa woman (played by Jennifer Garner) who attempts to win a butter-carving title formerly held by her husband (Ty Burrell), only to be thwarted by a young black girl (Yara Ahahidi). It mirrors the themes of the 2008 Democratic primary, but with butter. If I had one gripe about that particular primary, it was that it didn't have enough butter, even with Bill Clinton there.

It took Disney 28 years to sequelize Tron and, now, negative nine months to start work on a third film. Tron Legacy writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz have been hired to write another sequel with the intention to round out the story as a trilogy. At this point, it's not known if director Joseph Kosinski or the film's stars will return. It's also not known whether the movie deserves a sequel. Though that's never stopped anyone before.I'm looking at you Resident Evil. (THR)
The long-awaited Tron Legacy trailer is finally here thanks to some selfless individuals (read: nuuurrdddssss!) who solved the viral puzzle campaign to unlock the trailer. It looks pretty great. I'm sure that inhaler sales just skyrocketed. The trailer opens with Bruce Boxleitner sending Jeff Bridges's cool-haired son to track down his cyber-dad in the world of Tron. What we get is a nice look at the Techtropolis that the world of Tron has become — complete with cyber-babes, cyber-ninjas, Zoolander's nemesis Mugatu, and Jeff Bridges with his cyber-Rat Pack. Missing is Tron Guy. Though it's quite possible he's hiding behind this cyber-couch, waiting for the perfect moment to steal a sniff of Olivia Wilde's cyber-hair. Check out the trailer after the jump. It's worth it for the Daft Punk track alone.
Last we heard about Jon Favreau's Cowboys & Aliens was that original star Robert Downey Jr. was bailing in favor of talking like a British queef in the Sherlock Holmes sequel. Since that time, Daniel Craig has agreed to strap on the chaps left empty by Downey Jr.. Today comes news that Olivia Wilde has joined the cast. Probably in a sexily way, knowing her.Wilde will play Ella, a woman who joins Craig's gunslinger in the uprising against an alien invasion. Shooting is expected to begin this summer. No word yet on when the porn parody Reverse Cowgirls & Aliens will go before cameras. But we'll keep you posted. (THR)
House and Tron Legacy star Olivia Wilde, like many celebrities, has taken to Twitter to drum up support for the earthquake-ravaged Haiti. Olivia has pledged to send a personalized 'thank you' video to anyone generous enough to donate $200 or more to Artists for Peace and Justice's Haiti campaign. Wilde tweets:"Its worse every minute guys, so we are raising the stakes. Those who give $200 or more will get a personal thank you video… THANK YOU for your donation, OF ANY AMOUNT. they are all crucial. “I swear to you that every dollar is going directly to the Haitians who need it most. THANK YOU.”Other celebrities such as Wyclef Jean, Tiger Woods, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Ben Stiller, Jessica Alba, and Heroes' Jimmy Jean-Louis and Zachary Quinto, have urged fans to donate via Twitter and their own charity programs.See?! That's how you do it, Sarah McLachlan. You don't need to bum us out with suicidal animals to get your point across. Just be frank and to the point and send us videos of Olivia Wilde.You can donate to the Artists for Peace and Justice here. Or you can pledge $10 to the Red Cross by texting "HAITI" to 90999.
As this new poster for Tron Legacy declares, "the game has changed." But how? How has this game changed? Still looks all cyber-bikey to me. Is there cyber-lava now?? Or is it that the chicks are hotter this time around?Yes. That could be it. The girls are more attractive and, as you can see from the poster below, the perverts are just as Midwestern.
Death metal, explosives, corny jokes, and injections. Tonight's TV preview reads like a night in the life of Jackass star Steve-O.CHECK OUT WHAT TO WATCH AFTER THE JUMPNOTE: ALL TIMES EASTERN AND PACIFIC!!!
