Here are some hump day nibbles to whet your casting appetites:

After a lot of studio bad luck, the L.A. Times reports that Rashida Jones has finally found her leading man for her divorce dramedy, 'Celeste and Jesse,' and it's Andy Samberg. Yep, that's right -- the goofy SNL funnyman is going to get a little serious to play one half of a couple trying to stay friends after they get divorced. Jones, who co-wrote the script, says, "Our movie is about two people who love each other a ton, but they don't know what to do with that love, and how do you let that person go?" We've no idea how Samberg will fare with a little drama thrown into the mix, but we gotta give him credit for making a dramedy his second starring role. (Our apologies for originally forgetting 'Hot Rod.')

Benicio Del Toro, meanwhile, is getting into the drug trade. Deadline reports that the actor will play a drug enforcer in the upcoming Oliver Stone film 'Savages,' where two Laguna pot growers (Aaron Johnson and Taylor Kitsch) plan a huge robbery when their shared girlfriend is kidnapped by Mexican cartel matriarch (Salma Hayek). Del Toro is Hayek's muscle, and under the directorial eye of Oliver Stone, this sounds a whole lot better than 'The Three Stooges.'
