Fat Albert: According to Dark Horizons, Omar Benson has snagged the role of Fat Albert in the live-action pic of the same name.

Viggo Mortenson: I gotta tell you. I've loved this guy since his small role in Carlito's Way. I thought he was a good sleaze-ball in A Perfect Murder, and have you ever seen anyone take more care while ironing than Viggo did in Crimson Tide? While there are a few pics on his resume' that could and should be overlooked ( 28 Days anyone?), Viggo is finally getting his due thanks to his excellent portrayal of Aragorn in Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.

The latest news is that Viggo is in talks to play Cesare in Neil Jordan's biopic of the Borgia crime family. As written here before, this is a wicked tale of murder and corruption that is said to be the basis for Mario Puzos' The Godfather series. Seriously looking forward to this one.
