The story of a womanizer who gets beaten for his ways and loses his balls is interesting in its own right. It's strange, different, and has a ring of poetic justice. Now, continuing the uniqueness, this castration comedy is getting a diverse cast. The Hollywood Reporter posts that Judy Greer, Chloe Sevigny, Cybill Shepherd, and Billy Dee Williams have signed on to star with Patrick Wilson in Barry Munday. This is one cast I never would have dreamed could come together.

As we told you back in February, the film is based on Frank Turner Hollon's book, Life is a Strange Place. It focuses on a womanizer who gets caught canoodling with a teen, and his father beats him so hard for it that Barry ends up in the hospital with injuries that lead to castration. He begins to see that his life is not quite how he'd like it, and just as he realizes he will never be able to have kids of his own, he's named in a paternity suit. "Barry is elated at the second chance at fatherhood. Now if he can just avoid his crazy ex-girlfriend, her rabid dog, a mob of angry gay midgets, and his mother until the baby is born..."

Judy Greer will play the ex-girlfriend and soon-to-be mom, Sevigny will be her flirty sister with a secret life who hits on Munday, Shepherd is taking on the role of their mother, and Billy Dee will be a "tough boss at Munday's insurance company." Is anyone else as charmed by this cast as I am?
