Human-Angel Hybrids Could Maybe Be the New Vampires, and More...

- Director Ruben Fleischer has been adding actors to Gangster Squad at a pretty steady rate, and he's assembled a pretty impressive cast that includes Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Josh Brolin, and Anthony Mackie. But there was one element his cast did not have, and that was People Magazine's haggard Sexiest Man of 1992. Now it does, though, because Nick Nolte has signed on to play L.A. chief of police Bill Parker.

- Captain America: The First Avenger co-writer Christopher Markus has put in his two cents for who he'd like to see as the villain in the next Captain America movie: How about Peter Dinklage as the giant floating head of MODOK? Not bad, but as I've said, what about Rainn Wilson as MODOK? I'm pretty sure that's what his head was designed for in the womb.

- Maria Maggenti has been hired to write Kenny Ortega and Lionsgate's contemporary remake of Dirty Dancing. "Nobody leaves baby in the corner, with the economy like it is--oh, my iPad is doing something," maybe.

- Zoe Saldana's Colombiana didn't do so hot at the box office this weekend, but maybe she'll have better luck with Dominion, a new thriller she's producing and starring in. It's about a woman being half-human, half-angel, though, so probably not.
