Deadline today has news that Angela Lansbury will be playing the daughter of Katherine Heigl in Andy Tennant's Adaline. But wait a minute, you're thinking, isn't Angela Lansbury far too old to play the daughter of The Ugly Truth? Good catch, but in this situation it sort of makes sense in the context of this film's idiotic plot:

Long ago, [Katherine Heigl's character Adaline] was killed in a car accident, until a simultaneous lightning strike resuscitated her and physiologically locked her in her late 20s. Adaline lives a solitary existence until she meets a man worth losing her immortality to grow old with. Lansbury plays her daughter, who, in her mid-80s, needs her mother's care as her health declines.

But wait a minute, you're thinking, isn't Angela Lansbury too classy to be in a Katherine Heigl film? Good catch again. Yes, she probably was, but then the internet found this clip and all bets were off.
