The Hollywood Reporter writes that Louis C.K. is in talks to join David O. Russell's next project. Formerly entitled American Bullshit, the movie will star Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, and Amy Adams and tell the story of a con artist who works with a federal agent to take down dirty politicians. There's no word yet on whom C.K. would play, but he'll surely be paid in Russ & Daughters fish.
