Lovely ladies of the Apatow-verse news

The gorgeous, talented (and somewhat recent convert to the tribe) Elizabeth "funniest person in Seabiscuit" Banks has been cast as Laura Bush in the forthcoming Oliver Stone biopic W. Josh "Holin' in my" Brolin will be playing George W. I wasn't wild about Stone's World Trade Center or Alexander but to my mind he's stll got some talent credit in the bank from classics like JFK, Nixon and the hasn't aged particularly well Wall Street (still a fun movie though). The Bush presidency has definitely been the stuff of great drama...or comedy. Banks remains a sexy, talented lady who I've thoroughly enjoyed in 40 Year Old Virgin, Wet Hot American Summer, Slither and the Spider-Man movies and helped me get through Seabiscuit, Definitely Maybe and Fred Claus. Banks can next be seen opposite her Virgin love interest Seth Rogen in Kevin Smith's Zak & Miri Make a Porno. She can also be seen opposite Two-Face (the new one) in Meet Dave and opposite many Eddie Murphys in Meet Dave.

It's also worth mentioning that the equally sexy and talented Leslie Mann (that's Mrs. Apatow to you chumly) is celebrating her birthday today. It's not polite to mention a lady's age but I will say that I'd gladly have her chew me out in front of the club. I extolled Ms. Mann's considerable acting gifts in one of my favorite posts here. She recently appeared in Vanity Fair looking SENSATIONAL. So happy birthday to Ms. Mann, looking good Mrs. A! Mann can currently be seen flirting adorably with Owen Wilson in Drillbit Taylor. Mann's romantic prospects will not be improving much in the coming year as she will be playing opposite a de-aged Matthew Perry -cum-Zac Efron in Seventeen Again.
