Marsden, Keener And Morgan Get Nailed
Three sign for David O. Russell's next

24 March 2008  |  Written by Olly Richards  |  Source: The Hollywood Reporter

James Marsden, Catherine Keener and Tracy Morgan represent a quite delightfully diverse triumvirate. You've got Marsden covering the wholesome, thoroughly charming, mass appeal angle; Keener fills the indie cred slot; and Morgan's got that whole endearingly bat-shit crazy thing going. Which all bodes well for Nailed.

The trio has signed to take supporting roles in David O. Russell's next. The film already stars Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal. Biel plays a waitress who gets a nail shot in her head, causing bizarre behaviour, and then heads to Washington to campaign for better health care. While there, she falls for a ditzy congressman (Gyllenhaal) who has to find the courage to save her. In the case of David O. Russell versus sanity, this court finds gladly in favour of Russell.

Marsden plays Biel's boyfriend; Keener a self-serving congresswoman; and Morgan will likely play an injured friend of Biel who's given up on love, but details of his role are still being finalised.

I'd nail Catherine Keener anytime. Phwoaar
Or Jessica Biel for that matter lol. Joking aside though (I would though - either or both them) I loved Three Kings and I (heart) Huckabees so look forward to any new film by David O'Russell and this sounds a good'un. More
