The 'Salvation' casting announcement suggests that 2010 could well be Brosnan's year. He plays half-man, half-horse in this week's 'Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief,' and is promoting his work in Roman Polanski's latest flick 'The Ghost Writer,' which opens today at the Berlin Film Festival.

Like Brosnan, the four-time Oscar-nominated Harris has two film projects on the way: the Dustin Lance Black-directed 'What's Wrong With Virginia' and Peter Weir's 'The Way Back.' He's currently performing on stage at the Geffen Theater in Los Angeles, reprising his role in 'Wrecks,' Neil LaBute's solo play that ran Off-Broadway in 2006.

Gaffigan's recent efforts include the Keir Gilchrist-starring 'It's Kind of a Funny Story,' currently slated for a November release.
