Man, kids grow up right quick. The Hollywood Reporter posts that Ginnifer Goodwin (Big Love and He's Just Not That Into You) and Nicholas Hoult have joined the Isherwood adaptation A Single Man -- which I wrote about recently when Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, and Matthew Goode signed on. Goodwin will play a suburban mom who doesn't share her husband's dislike of Firth, their gay neighbor, while Hoult plays Kenny -- "a sexually ambiguous grad student who shows an unusual interest in the professor." Now, I didn't mention Hoult's credits yet because i was saving it for last -- this is the kid from About a Boy. Yes, that's his picture to the right. God, he's grown up!

In other news... It's a little hard to write about this 13... After I read Variety's quite-specitic casting piece, I read Christopher Campbell's review, which notes that some oft-mentioned plot points are pretty spoilerish. So here's what I will say: This is an English-language remake by Gela Babluani of his award-winning thriller 13 Tzameti. It's been cooking up since names like DiCaprio, Ledger, Phoenix, and Maguire were circling it. Sam Riley (Ian Curtis in Control) beat them to the gig, and then the likes of 50 Cent, Mickey Rourke, and Jason Statham were added. Now the above V piece says that Ray Winstone and Ray Liotta are entering the mix. If you don't care about possible spoilers, go there to learn the details of each cast member's role and what this twist is. If not: just know that it's oozing with machismo, and should make for one heck of a film.
