We have three pieces of casting news for you today.  First up, 24 Frames is reporting that Jennifer Garner is in talks to join Ron Howard’s upcoming comedy about cheating, unofficially titled Cheaters.  If she signs on, she’ll star alongside Vince Vaughn, Kevin James, and Winona Ryder.  Garner is currently prepping to star in the satirical comedy Butter, which also stars Kate Hudson, Ty Burrell, and Rob Corddry.

Hit the jump for casting news about Clive Owen and Tom Arnold.

clive_owen_image__1_.jpgAccording to Heat Vision, Clive Owen and European star Daniel Bruhl (Inglourious Basterds) will co-star in the thriller Intruders directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later).  Not much is known about the plot other than it’s about “an 11-year old girl forced to confront childhood demons.”  I wish that meant she’d be battling Damien, Regan, and Rhoda Penmark.  Owen will play the girl’s father.

Finally, Movieline reports that Tom Arnold will co-star in Battleship, Peter Berg’s adaptation of the well-known board game.  This comes on the heels of yesterday’s news that Taylor Kitsch (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) is starring in the film.  Battleship is about an international armada that has to go up again alien invaders.  So for all those who were wondering when they’d next see Tom Arnold…there ya go.

    Does anyone care what garner does? Alias (which, let's face it, was only a cult hit) was her peak and since then she has been playing the secondary girlfriend to guys like Ricky Gervais of all ppl! The Vaugh-James project is one in which she is playing fourth fiddle…. can ben affleck not get his wife something even slightly more substantial to do? If not, given Affleck's estimated 100 million + net worth, why does his wife even bother with such uninspiring, undemanding roles? Speaking of which, it makes you wonder: with the utter sh*t that she has worked in, mostly in supporting roles, since Alias, would anyone even remember her by now if she wasn't the mother of the Affleck girls, who seem to be tabloid favorites? anyway, she is sweet, family-oriented, and down to earth, so I guess it is better to see her in the pages of US Weekly than the likes of lindsay lohan.

    good to hear about clive owen… this guy is so wasted by hollywood though. He could make a pretty good movie star, yet it seems unlikely to happen now that he is 45. but it seems like he can't even attract good projects – why?
