Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) and Dax Shepard have signed on for the Disney comedy When in Rome, alongside Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel. It will be directed by the guy who did Ghost Rider and Daredevil.
Call me crazy, but I think Dax Shepard actually has the potential to be funny (see: Idiocracy). Sadly, he usually does movies like The Comebacks and that one with Jessica Simpson and Dane Cook. His agent has screwed him yet again:
Bell (“Heroes”) plays Beth, a successful but hopelessly single Gotham real estate agent. When her younger sister impulsively marries in Rome, Beth flies out for the wedding and, after picking up coins from a reputed “fountain of love,” finds an overabundance of suitors waiting for her back home. Heder plays a street magician who uses his talents to try to get the girl. [Variety]
This is all David Blaine’s fault. Before he came along, “Street Magician” meant a guy who yelled “Abra Cadabra, muthafucka!” and then punched you in the face and ran off with your wallet.
