If the casting news on He's Just Not That Into You keeps up like this, I imagine even the passersby in the flick will be big names. To recap: the flick comes from Sex and the City writers Greg Behrendt and Liz Tucillo's book about how most male excuses and laziness are signs that he's just not interested. The film already boasts Drew Barrymore as a star and producer, along with Jennifer Aniston, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Connelly, Bradley Cooper, Kevin Connolly, Justin Long and Ginnifer Goodwin. As if that wasn't enough, now we've got The Hollywood Reporter adding Ben Affleck and yes, wait for it -- Kris. Kristofferson.

The comedy will include a number of interconnecting story arcs, and Affleck is coming into Aniston's, playing her boyfriend -- "a man whose unwillingness to commit to marriage puts great strain on their relationship." Perhaps the guy remembered when he was a Man About Town and got cheated on. As for Kris, he is, oh yes, playing Jennifer's dad. I'm not sure I can see it, but I'll bite. I assume that he got this role after starring in Aniston's short directorial debut -- Room 10, which I told you about a few months ago -- because really, while not every film on Kris' resume is super-awesome, romcoms usually aren't his thing. Who will be next?
