We already know that Renee Zellweger is running towards Chris Noth in My One and Only, but who is she running from? There are lots of creepy possibilities in the Hollywood talent pool (who would make a believable love interest for Zellweger) -- actors like Javier Bardem, Crispin Glover, Cillian Murphy, and of course -- Kevin Bacon.
Variety reports that the cave dwelling, wild thing, hollow, woodsman has signed for the film, which has already started shooting in Baltimore. Based on George Hamilton's memories of his youth, the feature focuses on a road trip with mom, as she drives around looking for a rich man to complete the family. Bacon has landed the role of "the philandering band leader she tries to leave behind."
I've no doubt that Bacon will pull it off nicely, since creepy fare has become a second skin to the actor, but oh, how I'd like to see him in something lighter and fun, or serious, but not dark. He's a footlooser, for cripes sakes! Other suitors for Mamma Anne include Steven Weber and Nick Stahl (talk about traversing the possible ages), while George will be played by Logan Lerman, and his brother will be played by Mark Rendall.
