These days, we've become accustomed to watching projects get oversaturated with big-name talent. Step by step, the biggies sign on until there's literally no room left on the big screen. But Noah Baumbach is switching things up with Greenberg and creating a pretty fresh cast of big-name talent, mumblecore, newbies, and international flavor.

Variety reports that Brie Larson, Rhys Ifans, and Juno Temple are joining Ben Stiller and Greta Gerwig in the upcoming dramedy. The Baumbach story focuses on a New Yorker (Stiller) who moves to LA to figure out his life while housesitting for his brother, and ends up getting involved with his brother's assistant (Gerwig). Ifans will play Stiller's best friend, who is going through a divorce, while Larson will provide herself as "college-age temptation," and Temple plays her friend.

I'm thinking we've finally got someone to give Ellen Page a run for her money. These days, young talent that doesn't take the mainstream path is hard to find, but Larson is picking a pretty interesting mix of projects thus far -- including her television time as Toni Collette's daughter on United States of Tara. Mix that with Ben Stiller getting back to dramedy, and how can you go wrong?
