Screenwriter-producer Roberto Orci has confirmed that Bruce Greenwood's Pike has been written into the sequel, though the actor hasn't officially come on board at this time.Read More

Andrea Savage, director Jay Roach, Octavia Spencer, Rick Overton and Bruce Greenwood celebrate Dinner for Schmucks in Hollywood When I was invited to an event promoting the outrageous comedy Dinner for Schmucks, which arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on January 4, I was not only excited to attend... but curious as to what I may see there. After all, this hilarious movie does feature such characters as a "pet psychic," a "beard champion," a ventriloquist who has a bizarre relationship with his puppet and many more. While some of the actors who portrayed these characters were in attendance, they weren't in character, although there were several other bizarre characters providing entertainment.
The "Dinner for Journalists" event was held at the Roosevelt Hotel in the heart of Hollywood and featured a host of unorthodox entertainers for the other journalists and cast members in attendance, such as a sword swallower, a contortionist and a magician. Yes, the swords were in fact real, which made me question everything I learned in high school anatomy class. I still have no idea how that magician could make a crystal ball levitate or how that contortionist could twist herself to fit inside a box. The sword swallower even upped the bizarre ante by setting off a mousetrap on her tongue and literally eating a wine glass.Read More

A drama based on the autobiography by Li Cunxin. At the age of 11, Li was plucked from a poor Chinese village by Madame Mao's cultural delegates and taken to Beijing to study ballet.

I can't think of two better comedic actors to put a stop to this summer-long comedy drought in theaters than Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, whose new film Dinner for Schmucks opens in theaters nationwide on July 30. While they have both been making us laugh in their unique ways for years, this film shows us new sides to these comedy geniuses that we haven't seen before. Carell takes on the quirkiest character we've ever seen him inhabit in Barry Speck, an IRS employee who spends his free time as a taxidermist... for dead mice. Rudd, on the other hand, plays Tim Conrad, a financial analyst who's trying to move up in the ranks of his firm and finds that he has to partake in a unique company ritual to do so: invite a complete idiot to dinner so everyone can make fun of him. Despite going against his moral code, once he meets Barry (by running him over with his car...) he feels compelled to take this new friend of his to dinner, in a journey that changes both characters in ways neither expected.
Despite these two comedic powerhouses starring in the film, we get an impressive ensemble cast with the likes of Zach Galifianakis, Jemaine Clement, David Walliams, Chris O'Dowd, Bruce Greenwood, Ron Livingston, Larry Wilmore, Stephanie Szostak, Lucy Punch, not to mention the fantastic Jay Roach directing the film, which truly makes Dinner for Schmucks a complete comedic experience in more ways than one.Read More
