Sean Penn in Talks to Join Ben Stiller’s The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty

23 April 2012 1:26 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ben Stiller is assembling quite the cast for his remake of the 1947 comedy The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.  Stiller is directing and starring in the pic, which centers on a Life Magazine proofreader who, incapable of standing up for himself in the real world, retreats to a fantasy where he becomes his poised, confident opposite.  Kristen Wiig, Shirley MacLaine, Patton Oswalt, Adam Scott and Kathryn Hahn are all set to star, and now Deadline reports that Sean Penn is in talks to appear in a small yet pivotal role as a photographer. This is Stiller’s first directorial effort since 2008’s smash hit Tropic Thunder, and I’m really excited about the cast that he’s put together.  Not only is every actor a terrific comedian, but they all have proven dramatic chops as well.  Penn will be seen later this year in Ruben Fleischer’s (Zombieland) period crime »

Exclusive: Sean Penn is in negotiations to play a small but pivotal supporting role in 20th Century Fox’s remake of The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, the comedy that Ben Stiller is directing, with Stiller playing the title role. Stiller plays the timid magazine photo manager who goes off on an escapade to find a missing negative. Kristen Wiig, Adam Scott, Shirley MacLaine and Patton Oswalt also star.

We’ve seen Adam Scott bully his brother, Will Ferrell, in Step Brothers. We’ve seen failed-actor-turned-caterer in the Starz comedy Party Down and probably even in NBC’s Parks and Recreation. Well Deadline reports the comedian is the latest addition to the already powerhouse cast in Ben Stiller’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. The other members [...]

Adam Scott has signed on for an as-yet-unspecified role, but let’s say he will be somehow connected to Ben Stiller’s character. Don’t ask me why it just does: Kristen Wiig will play a co-worker who becomes Stiller’s love interest, Patton Oswalt will play Todd, an eHarmony worker who helps Stiller creates an online dating profile.

Shirley MacLaine Up For Walter Mitty

13 January 2012 4:58 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Long-in-development comedy remake The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty is adding some classic and classy acting talent to its line-up, with Shirley MacLaine in talks to play Ben Stiller’s mother in the film.Stiller will direct as well as starring as the main character, a man given to flights of fantasy as a way to escape his mundane life. He agreed to jump aboard thanks to a new script from Steve Conrad, which finally appears to have cracked the Mitty project from the bowels of development hell.Through the years, the likes of Jim Carrey, Ron Howard, Gore Verbinski, Owen Wilson and Sacha Baron Cohen have all been attached either as director or star, but for one reason or another – usually script issues– the project has never quite managed to shuffle on screen. It remains to be seen whether Conrad has held on to the most recent plot idea, »
