Check out this collection of old and new faces, courtesy of Variety:
  • He became super famous, or at least, super recognizable after jutting out his lower lip and playing Bubba in Forrest Gump. Now Mykelti Williamson is doomed to some terrible death -- or at least, he's doomed to be surrounded by it. He's picked up a role in the next accident fest -- Final Destination 4. Unfortunately, there's no word on who he'll play -- whether he'll have a bit part, or figure prominently. Either way, you'll get to see him in 3D! In the meantime, you can catch him in Vice, a new drama starring Michael Madsen and Daryl Hannah.
  • Then we've got Saturday Night Live alum Nora Dunn. Recently, she's been hanging out on the Pineapple Express, but now she's also getting spiritual -- or at least, into the spiritual business. Dunn has signed on to play a literary agent in the upcoming Jeff Daniels film The Dream of the Romans, which I told you about the other day. Daniels stars as a reclusive writer of spiritual books who gets hounded for advice by a few eager fans.
  • Finally, there's more talent signing on to the Patrick Swayze comedy Fired Up, which focuses on two guys who sign up for cheerleader's camp to pick up girls -- AnnaLynne McCord (Nip/Tuck) and Jake Sandvig (Sky High). There is no word on McCord's character (although I bet it would be safe to assume that she'll be a cheerleader), while Sandvig will play some dude named Downey. A-W-E-S-O-M-E. (I really hope this is good, for Swayze's sake.)
