Patrick Wilson to Play Charlize Theron’s Hunky Ex

Patton Oswalt and Patrick Wilson are joining Charlize Theron in Up in the Air director Jason Reitman's and Juno writer Diablo Cody's dark comedy, Young Adult. Theron plays a thirtysomething divorcée writer who returns to her hometown of Minneapolis to chase a now-married ex. Patton will play a "crippled, self-loathing man" with a crush on Theron, obviously, and Wilson will play the high-school ex. So far, this sounds promising. [HR]
