Though already quite funny on his own, Ben Stiller has always been very smart about surrounding himself with other top-shelf players, not only taking the entire pressure of carrying a movie off his shoulders, but earning big comic rewards from the chemistry of collaboration. And that is certainly bearing out for "The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty." Kristin Wiig, Adam Scott, Patton Oswalt and Shirley MacLaine are already all signed up, and now another very funny lady is adding her talents as well.

Adam Scott's career thus far pretty much defines the phrase "paying your dues." He's been working steadily pretty much since the start of his career logging time on both television and the big screen, but the last few years have finally seen his star deservedly rise. Of course, there was his stint on the criminally shortlived "Party Down" (which now is headed toward a feature film), apperances in Judd Apatow joints like "Knocked Up" and more notably "Step Brothers" and showing his range in everything from "Piranha 3D" to the indie "The Vicioius Kind." But 2012 seems to be the start of the next step in Scott's career. He's now fully fledged regular on "Parks & Recreation" (where he's tearing it a new one, see below) and has "Friends With Kids" arriving in the spring with Sundance hit "Bachlorette" arriving later in the year, and he's booked a big studio movie that will keep him busy during his hiatus from running Leslie Knope's political campaign.

Known by many network television junkies as Kevin James’ loud mouth cousin on “King of Queens,” and to comedy fans as a self deprecating standup comic whose jokes often favored obscure or nerdy topics, Patton Oswalt has recently emerged as a fine actor following the praise garnered for his supporting role in Jason Reitman’s “Young Adult.”

We're not going to mention the B-word at this point -- you've heard enough already -- but needless to say, the recent reports that Kristen Wiig's next project thus far was only going to be the "The Comedian" directed by Sean Penn and co-starring Robert De Niro has changed pretty fast.

Long in the works, with folks like Ron Howard, Steven Spielberg and Gore Verbinski in the director's chair, and stars like Jim Carrey, Mike Myers, Sacha Baron Cohen, Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson all mooted to star at various points, when it was announced last summer that Ben Stiller would be taking the lead and directing, we actually didn't think "The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty" would be moving this quickly. But not only is a spring shoot in the works, casting is starting.

After years in development, it looks like a contemporary take on the classic 1947 film "The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty" starring Danny Kaye is finally going to move forward. Over the years directors like Ron Howard, Steven Spielberg and Gore Verbinski came and went with folks like Jim Carrey, Mike Myers, Sacha Baron Cohen, Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson looking at the lead role. The project took a new direction over the spring when Ben Stiller came aboard in the starring role and it looks like he has such a clear vision for the project, he's just gonna make the damn thing himself.

Gore Verbiniski No Longer DirectingTwentieth Century Fox's remake of the Danny Kaye-starrer "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," is a project that's been in development for literally decades. Over the years Ron Howard, Steven Spielberg and more recently, Gore Verbinski were attached to direct the likes of Jim Carrey, Mike Myers, Sacha Baron Cohen, Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson in the lead role, about a timid daydreamer and his many fantasy lives. None of those incarnations ever got off the ground but now the film has fresh life once again as another top tier comic actor has linked up with the headlining part.
