Trade Roundup: Wendi McLendon-Covey, Jason Jones, Justin Kirk
Bridesmaids’ Wendi McLendon-Covey will star opposite Goldie Hawn in The Viagra Diaries pilot. She’ll play Goldie’s therapist daughter and if there is a God all of her advice to patients will sound like this.
Jason Jones of The Daily Show has signed on to play an Interpol agent in heist comedy The Black Marks. Also, Kurt Russell’s character is going to be named Crunch Calhoun. These two facts alone should mean you’ve already purchased a ticket.
Weeds’ Justin Kirk will be starring in Animal Kingdom, the show that will launch a thousand elephant acting careers. He’ll play “a House-like veterinarian who loves animals but usually hates their owners.” It feels like for symmetry purposes there should be a show out there about a doctor who’s super nice to human patients but HATES their puppies.
