Well, it looks like Hollywood was definitely hiring today.
Show business is apparently still booming, as Diane Kruger, Chris Pratt, Lucas Till, Mos Def, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Octavia Spencer and even "Adventures in Babysitting" star Elisabeth Shue all scored new gigs today, according to various sources.
Kruger, whom we just can't wait to see as The Seeker in "The Host" next year, is hitting the history books as she's joined the cast of another Abraham Lincoln movie, "The Green Blade Rises," according to Deadline. She'll be playing Sarah Lincoln, Abe's stepmother, in a film that to our knowledge will feature neither vampires nor Daniel Day-Lewis. Get More »
We know the Maroon 5 frontman can sing. Now it's time to see if he can act.
Adam Levine will hit the notes and will hopefully also hit the beats as he signs on for a lead role in "Can a Song Save Your Life?," according to Deadline.
The musical drama follows a boy (Levine) and girl (Keira Knightley) as they move to New York with big dreams of music careers. After he dumps her for a solo contract, she is discovered singing at a local bar by a down-on-his-luck record producer (Mark Ruffalo).

"The Avengers" has so many cool scenes in it that it's hard to pick favorites, but there's no question that some of the best spring from the chemistry between Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo. Between the epically tense recruitment scene and the terrifying chase sequence they share later, Johansson and Ruffalo ignite the screen every time they share it.
Which is why we're so bummed to hear from indieWire that Johansson has just dropped out of the Judd Apatow romance "Can A Song Save Your Life" and wilol be replaced by Keira Knightley. Looks like we'll have to wait until "Avengers 2" to see Johansson and Ruffalo make beautiful music together again.
Not that Knightley is exactly chopped liver; after all, any time you can add an Oscar nominee to your cast, it's usually a good thing. Chalk that coup up to the power of Apatow, who will be producing for "Once" director John Carney. Get More »
UPDATE: Another high note has been hit on "Can a Song Save Your Life?" with the announcement that Mark Ruffalo will indeed be joining Scarlett Johannson for John Carney's swoony romantic drama, according to Variety.
The Hulk and Black Widow, wandering about New York City and gazing longingly into each other's eyes as they profess their love in song? We'll be there.
