Industry: Diane Lane Joins the Loud Family

Modern Family: Diane Lane has signed on to star in HBO’s Cinema Verite, a dramatized look behind the 1973 documentary An American Family. Originally airing on PBS, the documentary, which was like the Jon and Kate of the seventies, showed a family frankly dealing with divorce and sexuality. Lane will play Pat Loud, the family’s matriarch, who asks her husband for a divorce on-camera. Sounds super uncomfortable! [Live Feed/HR]

Big Momma’s Big House: Faizon Love, Emily Rios, Portia Doubleday, and Michelle Ang have all joined the cast of the third installment of Big Momma’s House. Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son will center on Big Momma and his son (Brandon T. Jackson) going undercover in an all-girls school. Love is set to play a security guard with a crush on Big Momma, while the other three will play students. Martin Lawrence, for his part, will make this face. [HR]

Dig Her Out: Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker has confirmed that she will release a solo album on Kill Rock Stars in October. Tucker is currently holed up in Portland recording the album, which she calls “more of a middle-aged mom record.” We find this a little hard to believe, since middle-aged moms don’t usually rock this hard.

Oh My Tosh: Even before the premiere of the second season of Tosh.0, the show has been picked up for a third season. Comedy Central announced yesterday that there will be at least 29 more episodes of Daniel Tosh telling jokes in front of a green screen, in addition to the 25-show second season. We just hope he doesn’t run out of people for web redemptions. [HR]

Ex-Files: Hilary Winston, a co-executive producer of Community, has sold the film rights to her upcoming book My Ex-Boyfriend Wrote a Book About Me. The book and the movie are about Winston’s discovery that he ex-boyfriend wrote a novel in which she was represented by the “fat-assed girlfriend” character. Her book, which is nonfiction, will not be nearly as kind. [HR]
