We usually write about the actors who have joined some project, or who are still in negotiations, or are set to star in some movie…
This time we’ll just say, they are all interested! But that still doesn’t mean they’re signed on. That just means we’re here to have a little chat about their possible roles, and they, (according to Pajiba) are:
