Movie News Today

Michael Fessbender is in talks to join Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" which was originally an "Alien" prequel. Fessbender has completely exploded after a small but substantial role in 2009's "Inglourious Basterds" and is coming closer and closer to A-list status. Good for him.

With Fessbender headed over to "Promethius," it appears Viggo Mortensen may take his spot in "Snow White and the Huntsman." Now we just need to know who'll play Snow White.

Will Ferrell will join "The Office" for a 4 episode arc later this season. I am positively giddy right now; can't even begin to describe.

Ryan Murphy has some strong words for Kings of Leon, who have rejected the idea of having their songs featured on the director's hit show, "Glee." Hey Ryan, maybe you should stop focusing on musicians who don't want their music covered on your show (totally within their rights, obviously) and maybe put some attention toward "story development" or "likable characters" instead of doing the same thing over and over, week in and week out. I really enjoyed the first season of "Glee." I made it three episodes into this season, however, and loathed every minute of it. The show, quite frankly, sucks. Get off your high horse.

The LA Times has a very interesting story concerning movies that tank domestically (see: "Gulliver's Travels") that score big overseas. Great read.

Next in Film delivers 9 actors who need to get back in the game. Well said, excellent list.
