Bites for your Thursday:
  • Tony Hale hasn't gone anywhere, but I'm sure that I'm not the only one who misses his work as Buster Bluth on Arrested Development. Frankly, I miss all their work, although I'm still glad George Michael Cera has been unleashed into the world of film. Anyway, according to Variety, Hale has signed on to co-star with Jeremy Piven in his car salesman movie -- The Goods: The Don Ready Story. The film also boasts the likes of Ving Rhames and Kathryn Hahn. The film will slip into high gear this Monday in Los Angeles.
  • He co-starred as Memnon in The Scorpion King, his name is floating around James Bond rumors, and now Steven Brand has found himself more presumably action-infused work. Variety reports that he's not only got himself a regular role on a television series (Samurai Girl), but he's also got a part as "Boyd" in Jada Pinkett Smith's upcoming film, The Human Contract. As IMDb describes it, the drama is about a businessman with a dark secret who gets caught up with a stranger who convinced him to dump his life for another lived with "reckless abandon." I wonder if the stranger wears a red suit, horns, and a tail, carries a pitchfork, and is small enough to sit on his shoulder as well...
  • Ah, Alan Blumenfeld. To some, he's the good-natured rabbi from Gilmore Girls. To others, he's the super bad guy Molly didn't want to find on Heroes -- the man otherwise known as Parkman's dad. (Bit of trivia: He also played Greg Grunberg's dad on Felicity.) Now Variety reports that the actor has a part in Righteous Kill -- that 2008 action flick with Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. Will he be a good guy, or a bad guy? I'm guessing on the latter, since the cast is already full of cops. We'll be able to find out some time in 2008.
