Reese Witherspoon / Inherent Vice

The last name to join Paul Thomas Anderson's adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's book Inherent Vice was Owen Wilson, but now a trio of co-stars have just been added to the comedic detective story. Deadline has word that Reese Witherspoon is taking the female lead, a role once rumored for Charlize Theron, while The Wrap has pegged Martin Short to make his first live-action film appearance since The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, along with the addition of Jena Malone, who will be seen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this fall. That's quite an eclectic blend of talent, and none have worked with Anderson yet.

For those just joining us, the story follows a stoner detective named Larry "Doc" Sportello (Joaquin Phoenix) trying to solve the case of a kidnapped girl he used to date. Witherspoon is taking the female lead which will reunite the actress with her Walk the Line co-star for the first time since their Academy Award nominated musical collaboration (Witherspoon actually won Best Actress for her work). Malone is playing a former drug addict who asks Sportello for help, but Short's role has not yet been revealed. Frankly, I'd like to see Short's career get reinvigorated by working with someone like Anderson. How about you?

    She's never going to be in anything other than romantic comedies now, is she?

      It's PTA though so I doubt this will be a straight romcom.
