Hollywood's been busy casting moms:

First up, Variety reports that Virginia Madsen has signed on to play Amanda Seyfried's mother in the upcoming medieval thriller Red Riding Hood. Nothing new is being said about the Catherine Hardwicke film, nor anything specific about the role, but it's just one more piece in an increasingly interesting puzzle. While it must just be more dark fare to follow in Twilight's footsteps, you might remember that this project already has the likes of Julie Christie and Gary Oldman attached, not to mention Lukas Haas and Shiloh Fernandez. Now if only Hollywood could give Ms. Madsen roles that give her something other than parenting to do... But at least she's in good company with this one.

Hit the jump to see a mom for the Team Jacob contingent.
