In her new movie The Paperboy, Nicole Kidman will star as a woman in love with a death row inmate played by John Cusack. Which means that, contrary to what these on-set photos indicate, she won’t be playing a Barbie Doll. Zac Efron‘s going to be in this flick as well, in the role of an intrepid young newspaper reporter — which means that he won’t be playing a Ken Doll. Occam’s Razor, you have failed me.
The Paperboy‘s currently shooting in New Orleans and is set for a 2012 release. Based on a 1995 novel of the same name, it also stars Matthew McConaughey — once again as a non-plastic human. (I just spelled “McConaughey” without looking it up… prize?)
