Isla Fisher

What is Casting Couch? Today it’s a casting column that’s relying on the dreaded “short list” for content. You can’t really say that The Switch is a Jackie Brown prequel. Its story doesn’t really connect with the goings-on of Jackie Brown in any way, and Quentin Tarantino isn’t involved or anything. But it is an adaptation of an Elmore Leonard novel that features many of the same characters Jackie Brown did. Case in point: Variety reports that fiery redhead Isla Fisher is in negotiations to play Melanie, the same stoner surfer girl that Bridget Fonda played in Tarantino’s film.

31 Days of Horror - October 2012

They said it couldn’t be done. A fifth year of 31 Days of Horror? 31 more terror, gore and shower scene-filled movies worth highlighting? But Rejects always say die and never back away from a challenge (unless you count that time Jack Giroux was challenged to prove that hairy palms don’t come from excessive masturbation), so we’ve rounded up the horror fans among us and put together another month’s worth of genre fun. Enjoy! Synopsis: Written by Stephen King at the height of his fame, Silver Bullet tells the story of mysterious and violent deaths happening in the small Maine town of Tarker’s Mill. At first, they are dismissed as accidents, but soon people suspect a killer is on the loose. Young paraplegic Marty Coslow (Corey Haim) and his older sister Jane (Megan Follows) uncover some evidence that leads them to believe that the killer is actually a werewolf. Marty and Jane try to convince their wayward uncle Red (Gary Busey) that not only is the killer a literal monster but the werewolf has now targeted them because they know the secret.
