Prepare for your comedic worlds to collide: Johnny Knoxville and Patton Oswalt are teaming up for an as-yet untitled comedy.
Deadline has the news that the two funnymen will be starring in a flick to be directed by relative newcomer Todd Rohal. They will play battling brothers who, in an attempt to honor their dying father, take a group of boys on a camping trip...though of course that does not go as planned. The movie also stars Rob Riggle, Maura Tierney and Patrice O'Neal.

Talk about having some major range: Oscar-winner Jeff Bridges will go from "Crazy Heart" to "Tron" to "True Grit" to, possibly, the zombie comedy "R.I.P.D."
According to Deadline, Bridges is in talks to star opposite Ryan Reynolds in the movie about a squad of undead police officers. The comedy, which is based off of a comic, has Robert Schwentke at the helm. If Bridges were to step in, he would be taking over for Zach Galifianakis, who dropped out from the project due to scheduling issues. Honestly though, who wouldn't abide by the law if The Dude was on the undead force?!

So, Zach Galifianakis is looking to join Ryan Reynolds for "R.I.P.D.," the Dark Horse Comics adaptation from "Red" director Robert Schwentke. That's excellent for so many reasons, not the least of which is Zach's willingness to get in on the action genre.
We've seen the bearded one handle himself in this arena before with portions of "The Hangover," but "R.I.P.D." promises to be an even more stunt-studded affair. With Zach on board for this latest flick, it got us wondering — why haven't we seen him taking on more action roles?
There are certainly plenty of action-heavy parts currently requiring actors, and I see no reason why Galifianakis couldn't take a stab at one or more of 'em. Check out our rundown of the best available action roles for the hairy funnyman. Read More...
