Julia Child: The Movie?
It's rare that I would have entertainment news to share, but because it's food related, I'm hoping fab Celebritology blog-mistress Liz Kelly won't mind.
The late great cooking dame Julia Child will be the subject of a yet-to-be-named film, and the woman bringing her back to life is Joan Cusack.
Most recently, Cusack appeared with the star-studded cast of "Friends With Money" (Jennifer Aniston, Catherine Keener, Frances McDormand); you may also remember her from "Runaway Bride" and "High Fidelity," or if you're old like me, "Saturday Night Live" skits from the late 1980s. Maybe Cusack should consult former SNL-er Dan Akyroyd (remember his bang-up Julia skits?) for some tips on the accent?
Apparently, Cusack announced the news while on air with Martha Stewart late last month. Anyone who saw the episode, let us know in the comments area below.
Here's the latest bite on "Fast Food Nation," the movie version on the best-selling book of the same name by Eric Schlosser.
Directed by Richard Linklater ("Slacker," "Dazed and Confused"), "Fast Food Nation" is chockfull of stars telling Schlosser's controversial story about the powerful fast food machine, including how those burgers are really made. You'll see Greg Kinnear, Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke and Kris Kristofferson, to name a few heavy hitters.
