We’ve got a couple of casting stories to share this afternoon.  First up, Judy Greer and Portia Doubleday (Youth in Revolt) have been added to the cast of director Kimberly Peirce’s Carrie remake. Chloe Moretz is set as the lead in the adaptation, which will apparently adhere closer to Stephen King’s novel than Brian De Palma’s 1976 adaptation.  We first heard about Greer being considered for a role a few weeks ago, but the studio denied that any casting decisions had been made at the time.  Now MGM/Screen Gems has confirmed that Greer will play gym teacher Miss Desjardin while Doubleday will take on the role of bad girl Chris Hargensen.  Julianne Moore is set to play Moretz’s troubled mother in the pic, which begins production in a few short weeks.

Hit the jump for casting news concerning the Steve Jobs biopic Jobs.

Additionally, Dermot Mulroney has joined the cast of the in-production biopic JobsAshton Kutcher is playing the Apple visionary for director Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote).  Deadline reports that Mulroney will play Mike Markkula, an early angel investor in Apple who eventually became the company’s second CEO.  Mulroney joins a cast that includes Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, Ahna O’Reilly, Chris-Ann Brennan, and Matthew Modine.
