I am an unabashed fan of The O.C., which is equivalent to being an Adam Brody supporter.  His career never took off like we all expected after the Fox soap signed off the air 2007, but there’s still time for the 32-year-old actor to flourish.  The next couple years promises a flurry of Brody, including Damsels in Distress, The Oranges, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, and Lovelace.  At least one of those ought to stick, but tonight we received word of two more starring vehicles for Brody: Some Girls and Welcome to the JungleSome Girls is a feature adaptation of the Neil LaBute play bout a successful writer who meets with five ex-girlfriends before his wedding.  Welcome to the Jungle also features Rob Huebel, Dennis Haysbert, Kristen Schaal, and Jean-Claude Van Damme(!) as a group of co-workers who go on an office retreat and end up stranded on a tropical island.  Hit the jump for more on each project.

Jamie Foxx is making his animated film debut with Welcome to the Jungle for 20th Century Fox Animation.  According to Variety, the film is based off an original pitch from Foxx and writer Malcolm Spellman (Our Family Wedding).  Foxx will star in, produce, and score the movie.  Not much is known about the story beyond Spellman’s total non-hint, “Life is a jungle and welcome to it,” which is a lot describing Raiders of the Lost Ark as, “A Lost Ark is going to get raided.”

Foxx will next be seen this November alongside Zach Galifianakis and Robert Downey Jr. in Todd Phillips’ Due Date.  The actor has also signed on to co-star with Bruce Willis in the adaptation of the Kane & Lynch videogame.
