Jude Law, Alec Baldwin, Isla Fisher Also Among Cast, Leonardo DiCaprio Out; 'Rabbit Hole' Scribe David Lindsay-Abaire Penning The ScreenplayFor over a decade now, DreamWorks Animation have been consistently behind Pixar in their output: films like of "Shark Tale," "Monsters Vs.

But, to their credit, the company seem keen to change things, bringing on big creative names to aid their newer projects: Guillermo Del Toro will serve as executive producer on many of the company's new films, and top-flight writers like Charlie Kaufman and Noah Baumbach are writing sequels to "Kung Fu Panda" and "Madagascar."

Will Ferrell, Katy Perry, Seth Rogen, Taylor Swift, Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin and Gwyneth Paltrow have all been linked or rumored at various stages (Rogen recently laughed off those reports) over the past half year or so in what the filmmakers hope will be a star-studded, musical extravaganza. Well, yet another big name is now being thrown into the mix.

Totally Amazing/Totally FrighteningWe're not sure how on Earth Alec Baldwin's agent convinced him to do these. He is either the smartest man in Hollywood or the dumbest. Or both. But either way, these ads for the grocery store chain Wegmans, bizarrely starring Alec Baldwin, are total WTF amazing and brilliant.
