More fun casting news about the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler sister movie The Nest. Deadline reports that James Brolin will play the pair's dad in the upcoming comedy about two adult sisters throwing one last party in their parents' house. So this means Barbra Streisand is basically Tina and Amy's mom by association, right? We're pretty sure that's how this works.
