There’s lots of big casting news coming out of Hollywood this week which means there will plenty of opportunities coming up for celeb sightings later this year! Here’s a look at just a few recent deals:
-John Krasinski is in talks to join Ginnifer Goodwin in the romantic comedy Something Borrowed. The movie is based on the book of the same name about a Manhattan attorney (Goodwin), the consummate good girl, who falls in love with her best friend’s fiance on her 30th birthday. Its a good thing he got this new gig because it looks like he’s out of the running for Captain America.

-Jason Segel and Ed Helms will star in Jeff Who Lives at Home, a stoner comedy from Mark and Jay that begins filming in Louisiana next month. The movie chronicles a day in the life of two brothers, one a loser (Segel) who lives at home and the other (Helms) more together but overbearing.
-Selena Gomez is set to play one of the three lead roles in Tom Bezucha’s young femme comedy Monte Carlo, while a possible deal is also in the works for Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester. Nicole Kidman is producing the project and may have a cameo role as well.
