The past few years have seen some of the most anticipated cinematic pairings finally come to fruition: Aronofsky with Portman, the Coen Brother reuniting with Jeff Bridges, Jeff Bridges reuniting with Young Jeff Bridges. However, all of them stand to be trumped when Jeremy Piven co-stars with Miley Cyrus.
We’ve already reported on So Undercover (even though you most likely learned about it while reading your daughter’s texts over her shoulder and wondering what FJD means), but the news of Piven’s involvement is a real wrench in the works that usually pump out pure, clean sarcasm.
It’s impossible to know what to think about this.
Still, Piven seems to be continuing his family-friendly roles (with this and Spy Kids 4 forthcoming), and his performance here stands to rival the time Paul Giamatti agreed to appear head to toe in blue paint for a children’s film.
The movie will also feature Mike O’Malley (a legitimate actor forever in the shadow of the Aggrocrag) and Kelly Osbourne, securing the fact that I am definitely not the target audience for this.
