In the upcoming comedy "What's Your Number?," the always hilarious Anna Faris plays a woman looking back on her past 20 relationships and trying to determine if one of her exes is really her true love. But in real life, is Anna quite as adept when it comes to examining former flings?

We brought up the subject with Anna and "Jersey Shore" star Vinny Guadagnino during our most recent episode of After Hours, "Let's Talk About Ex," in which Vinny learns the definition of "innocuous" and Anna breaks the heart of our fearless After Hours host, Josh Horowitz.

Larry DavidHere's some casting news that is prettt-ay, prettt-ay, prettt-ay funny: Larry David, the king of uncomfortable comedy, will reportedly settle into a role in the Farrelly Brothers' upcoming take on "The Three Stooges." But it's not exactly what you'd expect (hint: he's not playing Larry!)

Deadline reports that the "Curb Your Enthusiasm" co-creator has signed on to play Mother Mengele, the nun who runs the orphanage where the stooges hail from. David, last seen on the big screen in 2009's "Whatever Works," joins Sean Hayes, Will Sasso, Jane Lynch and Chris Diamantopoulos for the Farrelly-directed comedy.

Check out the rest of today's biggest casting news out of Hollywood, including the casting for Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's latest endeavor.

Bieber and WahlbergJustin Bieber. Mark Wahlberg. On the basketball court. Say hi to your mother for me, alright?!

No, this isn't a weird "Clue" spinoff we're engaging in. Instead, it's the premise of a new basketball drama starring the "Never Say Never" sensation and the superstar actor and producer behind "Entourage" and "The Fighter." Deadline has the news, saying that Wahlberg will produce and co-star in a b-ball movie with Bieber that's described as "The Color of Money" meets "The Karate Kid." Baby, baby, baby ooh indeed.

There's much more casting news today beyond Wahlberg and Bieber's full court press. After the jump, learn who's reportedly in talks for "The Lone Ranger" (hint: not Ryan Gosling) and the identity of one of Superman's newest foes!

Ryan GoslingRyan Gosling could be adding a high-profile role to his already-diverse resume: The Lone Ranger.

The Wrap reports that the Oscar-nominated actor has begun early talks with Disney to sign on for Gore Verbinski's big screen version of "The Lone Ranger." While it's certainly a different choice for the indie favorite, here's a big incentive: Johnny Depp would play Tonto to Gosling's Ranger.

But he may not be able to ride off with the part just yet, as his increasingly busy schedule (including "Crazy, Stupid, Love" and "Logan's Run") may not permit him to take part in the blockbuster-to-be, which is slated to hit theaters by 2014.

Check out the rest of Monday's biggest casting news in Hollywood and find out who joined the casts of "The Dark Knight Rises" and "The Perks of Being A Wallflower."

Topher Grace in Take Me Home TonightAn '80s-set comedy starring Topher Grace, Anna Faris, Dan Fogler, Teresa Palmer, Chris Pratt and Michelle Trachtenberg sounds like a cinematic slam dunk. Sure, it's not going to put up "Avatar" numbers at the box office, but there's definitely an audience willing to dole out good money to see that young, hip cast party like it's 1988. And yet "Take Me Home Tonight" (formerly titled "Kids in America") has languished on a shelf since completing principal photography in early 2007.

Well, Grace and co. can finally breathe a sigh of relief, because the film will finally see the light of day (or, rather, the dark of theater) on March 4, 2011. MTV News recently caught up with Grace, who's also a producer on "Take Me Home Tonight," and asked him to talk about the film's long odyssey to the big screen.

"[The film came from] this idea that every generation had a film that looked about 20 years back," Grace said, adding that most '80s flicks blatantly make fun of the decade. "We wanted to do something that felt like it was literally made in the '80s. So, we brought this to a different studio, and they were very supportive when they made the film, so we're very grateful for that." Read More...

Anna Faris"Ghostbusters 3" might not have a finished script, a green light or a director, but it certainly is gathering quite the cast.

Indiewire reports that in an interview with Chicago radio station WGN, scribe and original Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd confirmed some of the casting rumors that have been swirling around for the past few months. According to Aykroyd, "SNL" funnyman Bill Hader is a "strong possibility" to star in the film, and Aykroyd is also banking on the participation of Anna Faris and Eliza Dushku.

Those three are added to the list of the previously on-board Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver. Aykroyd didn't mention whether Will Forte or original cast members Rick Moranis and Ernie Hudson, who were all rumored to have cameos, might be in for the film... but we wouldn't rule them out just yet. If anything's clear, it's that Aykroyd knows who he's gonna call when he needs some onscreen backup. Read More...

"Yogi Bear" is one of the more defensible planned adaptations, a 3-D CG/live-action mix based on the classic '60s cartoon series. I only vaguely remember seeing -- and loving -- the original on TV growing up in the '80s, and I imagine that subsequent generations have little, if any, experience with it.

The basic plot of the original series follows two bears, Yogi and Boo-Boo (played in the movie by Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake, respectively), who are constantly trying to swipe picnic baskets from visitors to the fictional Jellystone Park. Always there to thwart them is Ranger Smith (Tom Cavanagh in the movie). Speaking to "Yogi" helmer Eric Brevig in an exclusive interview, MTV's Eric Ditzian asked why it was deemed important to shoot the movie in 3-D. Read More...

FROM MTV.COM: You'd be hard-pressed to find three more fun, bubbly, beautiful blondes than Anna Faris, Amy Poehler and Christina Applegate. This week, millions will go and see their new movie, but not actually see them. Or really hear them — at least not their God-given voices.

The ladies, who play the Chipettes in "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel," say the film is a unique opportunity for an actor to infuse a character solely with personality, unencumbered by the usual limitations of voice and physicality. Such lofty thoughts, however, went right out the window when we recently sat down with Poehler and Applegate, two good friends who could barely contain their laughter long enough to give us their thoughts on the sexiest Chipmunk, their old-tim

Remember kids, the truth is always far, far stranger than fiction. It was a little more than a year ago that we found out the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon series "Yogi Bear" would be getting a big screen treatment. There was no casting announced or anything like that; just that the project was happening with "Surf's Up" director Ash Brannon at the helm and that it would feature a mix of live-action and CG animation.

Well today, the plot thickened. Variety reports that Anna Faris, Justin Timberlake and Dan Aykroyd are all in negotiations to join the cast of the movie, which will now be directed by "Journey to the Center of the Earth" helmer Eric Brevig from a script by Brad Copeland ("Wild Hogs"). Read More...
