Biel is set to play an Army general pursuing the team who is the ex-love of Cooper's character "Faceman."
The two join Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in the Joe Carnahan-directed action-adventure, scheduled to be released on June 11, 2010. Ridley Scott, Jules Daly and Stephen J. Cannell are producing the film, written by Skip Woods. Filming begins this fall in Vancouver."

Oh, he'll be flipping brilliant!

I could do without Jessica Biel, but Sharlto is a Muppet Quality actor.

Ayup, Hollywood is like that. The minute you're even considered for an A-list movie, you're A-list material - because obviously no one would have considered you otherwise, right? Right?

But that'll be funny indeed. Huh.

Well, my problem is with Jessica's age. General? You've got to be kidding me.

Oh! Yeah, you're right. Unless they're having the actress play an older woman, there's no way a late-twenties person would make general in today's army.

I hadn't realized how young she was, I had to go look it up. Thanks.
