90210 might be gearing up for more high school magic, but Ian Ziering has other projects to worry about. Serious projects that challenge his skills and should throw him into serious Oscar territory. No, I kid. Variety reports that he does have a new film on the way, but it certainly won't be a great one for the acting scorecard. He's going to star in a new National Lampoon's "sword-and-sandals spoof" called The Legend of Awesomest Maximus. But wait -- there's more. He'll play "Testiclees, a hero who can only be wounded in his gonads." I thought that was any man, but maybe he's got it worse.

In other news, Michael Cera isn't the only Arrested Development kid getting work. Aside from showing up in Bart Got a Room, Variety reports that Mae 'Maeby' Fünke, otherwise known as Alia Shawkat, has nabbed a role in Whip It! She's playing a gal named Pash, and is joining the awesome female-led cast of Ellen Page, Drew Barrymore, Marcia Gay Harden, Juliette Lewis, Zoe Bell, and Kristen Wiig. This pic better be good, because the cast is making me really anxious to see this sucker.
