It has been nearly a decade since funnyman Billy Crystal has appeared on screen in a movie (and we'll overlook his cameo in "The Tooth Fairy"), seemingly perfectly content to just do voice work ("Cars," "Howl's Moving Castle") or appear in viral videos. But there is only so long you can keep somebody like Crystal away from a movie set. He's set to cameo in "The Muppets" later this year, he apparently pops up in Jonas Åkerlund's "Small Apartments" and, of course, he'll be bringing Mike Wazowski back to life in "Monsters University." But his first big starring role since "Analyze That" will be in "Us & Them" with Bette Midler and Bailee Madison, and now a couple more folks are along for the ride.

Director Andy Fickman isn’t known for his deft skills at directing comedy, as the Amanda Bynes vehicle “She’s the Man” and last year’s already forgotten “You Again” bear out, but his next film “Us & Them” (which, we suppose completes an unofficial trilogy of films with bland, pronoun-heavy titles) can’t be knocked for lacking talent. It already boasts Billy Crystal returning from the wilderness after “Analyze That,” and now, Variety reports that Bette Midler -- absent from our screens since the nonsensical remake of George Cukor’s “The Women” committed gynocide at the box-office in 2008 worse than Charlotte Gainsbourg in “Antichrist” -- and precocious “Just Go with It” and "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" star Bailee Madison have also joined the cast.
