Here are a few recent casting notes at a glance:

Hit the jump for more on each film.

First up from Variety comes taylor-schilling-stayMinghella’s possible addition to The Internships, which Levy is set to film shortly.  The picture finds Wilson and Vaughn as two out of work and antiquated salesmen who try to get a leg up in the digital world by interning at a tech company.  Minghella would play a rival intern who attempts to sabotage the duo and claim a full time position.  Other additions include Tiya Sircar (Friends With Benefits), newcomer Tobit Raphael and Josh Brener (Glory Daze), who stars as a more benevolent intern.

THR reports that Schilling will topline the indie drama Stay opposite Aidan Quinn (Legends of the Fall).  Director Wiebke von Carolsfield (Marion Bridge) helms a story about a woman (Schilling) who returns home to Canada after learning that she is pregnant and that the father (Quinn) has no interest in keeping the baby.  Schilling can next be seen in Ben Affleck’s Argo followed by David O. Russell’s The Silver Linings Playbook.

The Playlist has Larson joining Woodley and Teller in Smashed director James Ponsoldt’s The Spectacular Now. Adapted from the Tim Tharp novel of the same name, the picture follows a popular high school senior who dates a social outcast as a service project, but then realizes that his actions impact the lives of others.  Larson will play Cassidy, but it’s not yet clear whether her character or that of Woodley’s is the social outcast in question.

Finally, from Deadline comes news that Papa will join Behind the Candelabra as Liberace’s stage manager and producer, Ray Arnett. The Soderbergh picture, which starts shooting in LA next month, stars Michael Douglas in the flamboyant piano player’s role.  Look for the film to debut on HBO before opening in theaters.
