It just seems to me that on the heels of Wanderlust, and while waiting quite impatiently to learn of his next stage appearance – if it still exists – this announcement of a non-starring role in a horror film is, well, unsettling.  Right now, we have some audio works to look forward to, and Ocean’s 8. No one knows about My Zoe, though I think it will film – but will he still be available? So, there’s no new film on the horizon except this one.
