What is Casting Couch? It’s the casting news roundup that’s being written from the waiting area of a body shop today, because the Hollywood machine never stops, and we’ve got to keep up. Today we’ve got news about new jobs for Carey Mulligan, Jessica Alba, and that guy whose name keeps popping up everywhere, James Badge Dale. Bradley Cooper provided a pretty big casting bombshell regarding Cameron Crowe’s next film while he was giving an interview to the Huffington Post. What exactly Crowe’s next venture is going to be about is still being kept under wraps, but the general rumor is that Cooper will be starring in it, he’ll be playing a defense contractor of some sort, the film will be set in Hawaii, it will feature roles for Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams, and—now the important part—according to Cooper, This is the End scene stealer Danny McBride is going to be part of the cast as well. Crowe and McBride together is likely going to be the craziest thing that’s happened since Matt Damon bought that zoo.
