Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Luis Guzman and Craig Ferguson have scored roles in the Brad Silberling-directed Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events for Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks.

The role is a fortunate turn for Guzman as his Fox sitcom "Luis" was canceled after four showings. Guzman and Ferguson join Jim Carrey, Meryl Streep, Jude Law and Jennifer Coolidge in the film, which is based on Daniel Handler's children's book series and is being produced by Walter Parkes, Laurie MacDonald, Albie Hecht and Julia Pistor. Emily Browning and Liam Aiken round out the cast.
