Brie Larson, Amanda Seyfried, and the 'Submarine' Kid Joined Some Things


Hey, casting things!

- Brie Larson is reportedly in talks to join the cast of Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt's remake of The Gambler. She'd play a student, the female lead opposite Mark Wahlberg's least-convincing college literature professor since the invention of the written word.

- Amanda Seyfried is reportedly re-teaming with her Les Miserables co-star Russell Crowe for Fathers and Daughters. As was previously noted, Crowe is playing a mentally-ill single dad for flashback parts of the film; the rest takes place in the present, with Seyfried playing the daughter he raised. Spoiler: she's Supergirl.

- Remember our new Bud Cort from Richard Ayoade's Submarine? Well, his name is Craig Roberts, and it looks like he's going to keep being in things. He's reportedly joining 22 Jump Street as Spencer, a student at Tatum and Hill's new college assignment. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this character will be something of a nerd.
