Edie Falco, Sharon Stone to Play Greek Goddesses

You've got to hand it to Josh Goldfaden and Marc Turtletaub: When the two writer-directors began casting for their upcoming movie Gods Behaving Badly, about two humans who get entangled with a New York brownstone full of mythological Greek deities, they went bold. You've got Edie Falco and Sharon Stone as Artemis and Aphrodite, respectively, Christopher Walken and John Turturro as Zeus and Hades, Phylicia Rashad and True Blood's Nelsan Ellis as Demeter and Dionysus, and, most crucially, Christopher Walken as Zeus. All that plus Alicia Silverstone and Oliver Platt, as well as Rosie Perez playing the queen of the underworld, Persephone? SAG, promptly surrender your Best Ensemble award now. [Movieline]
