It's a casting match that appears to have been whipped up in some sort of comedy-culinary heaven. Variety is reporting that actor Ty Burrell ('Modern Family') is in final negotiations to star alongside Jennifer Garner in the Weinstein Co.'s upcoming comedy 'Butter.'

In the aptly-named film, Burrell would be portray a butter-carving champion pressured to give up his crown after 15 years of dominance. His wife (Garner), unwilling to give up the sheen of the buttery spotlight, then resolves to become her own dairy queen by taking on the competitive sport herself.
