Chris Lowell to join 'The Help,' Gary Oldman gets vocal for 'Kung Fu Panda' sequel

Posted on

  • Private Practice‘s Chris Lowell is in talks to star alongside Emma Stone, Viola Davis, and Bryce Dallas Howard in the adaptation of Kathryn Stockett’s The Help. It’s a great book, but I’m still waiting for someone to adapt The Halp. [THR]
  • Gary Oldman will voice a character named Peacock in DreamWorks Animation’s sequel Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom. Peacock apparently helps Po locate a group of bandits, then gets on his bad side when he decides to move Jay Leno back to The Tonight Show. [THR]
  • Jason Richman will use a paper clip, a light bulb, and soap on a rope to pen the script to MacGyver. If MacGruber doesn’t destroy it first, that is. [THR]
  • The Disney Channel has picked up “teen dance buddy comedy” Shake It Up! for their fall schedule. Think 48 Hours with teens and dancing. Or not. [Variety]
  • Romola Garai is in talks to join rom-com One Day, which stars Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess as two classmates who meet during graduation, and continue to see each other one day a year for the next 20 years. Clearly, they don’t have Facebook. [THR]
