We've all seen the many ways that Jason Segel is a big dude, but now he's gearing up to see what life is like on the other side. The Hollywood Reporter posts that he's in talks to sign onto Jack Black's Gulliver's Travels along with Emily Blunt. Black's Gulliver washes up on the island of Lilliput, where people are only 6 inches tall, and befriends a wee one named Horatio (Segel). Horatio not only has the honor of having a friend who can squash him -- he's also the love interest of the island's princess (Blunt). Lucky girl.

In less lucky circles, Hilary Swank is no longer getting debonair love from Jeffrey Dean Morgan. After romancing it up in P.S. I Love You, THR posts that he's going to stalk her in The Resident. She'll play a young doc who nabs a loft in Brooklyn, only to find that her charming landlord (Morgan) is actually a psycho who pulls her into "a terrifying game of cat and mouse." They really lack the chemistry, so this should be an improvement. Finally, we've got some Roman thrills to anticipate. According to THR, Neil Marshall has grabbed his stars for Centurion, a story set during the Roman invasion of Britain all the way back in 117 A.D. It's all tough guys, violence, and genocide, and will contain not only Bond girl Olga Kurylenko, but also 300 alums Michael Fassbender and Dominic West. Both men have been popping back and forth between gritty action and dramatic retro fare (whether it's the gut-wrenching Hunger, or the lighter Midsummer Night's Dream), so expect some solid performances balanced with Bond sexiness.
