What do these three actors have in common? As usual, absolutely nothing, other than the fact that they got work in the pas 24 hours or so. Hang on…

Rodrigo Santoro, who made a name for himself as the badass, heavily pierced Xerxes in 300, has gone decidedly less badass in his next role as J. Lo’s husband in the pregnancy ensemble romcom What to Expect When You’re Expecting. Wow. That sentence just sent a wicked chill down my spine. Say a prayer for poor Rodrigo before you go to bed tonight. (THR)

In happier, more sensible news, J.B. Smoove, most known for his uproarious (and I NEVER use that word) Curb Your Enthusiasm character Leon Black, will takes his talents to Sacha Baron Cohen‘s The Dictator. Unfortunately, they’ve decided to make the details of this move a closely guarded secret, so we’ll have to just assume that Smoove’s character will be some sort of awesome guy. Deal?

The comedy all-star parade previously known as The Hand Job (now known as the more marketable The To Do List) adds two one familiar name and one familiar face to its roster. The sex comedy starring Aubrey Plaza added Rachel Bilson and the ubiquitous Agent Coulson of the Marvel films universe, Clark Gregg. These two will join (deep breath) Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, Alia Shawkat, Mae Whitman, Johnny Simmons, Donald Glover, Connie Britton, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Scott Porter, D.C. Pierson and Dominic Dierkes. (Playlist)

My favorite movie of 2010, Buried, had a very impressive script that subtly and brutally piled suspense on top of tension and repeated for the entirety of its running time. So I’m excited to report that the man responsible for that Buried‘s screenplay, Chris Sparling, wants to direct as well. Here’s some info on his latest project, and directorial debut:

“Sparling will direct Falling Slowly, which will star Mandy Moore and Rodrigo Santoro, a supernatural thriller about a couple whose apartment is haunted by a dark presence. “

I have to admit I’m a little bit disappointed. Given the fact that Sparling wrote Buried, I thought maybe Falling Slowly would be 90 minutes of Mandy Moore falling slowly, perhaps in an abandoned space station. Oh well, dark presences are cool too. (via The Playlist)
