O'Toole Cast in The Christmas Cottage

This is one of the oddest news stories you'll hear all month. Hollywood has finally branched out to adapting paintings - yes you heard right, paintings. The Thomas Kinkade painting named The Christmas Cottage (seen to the right) is the inspiration behind a Lionsgate film by the same name. And who's set to star? None other than Peter O'Toole, our favorite lady-loving actor of all time. It's set to be directed by Michael Campus and be filmed this month for a December release. The film is partly biographical and based on events that led American painter Kinkade to become an artist. O'Toole will play a painter Glen Weissler, based on one of Kinkade's mentors.
Sorry, it's a slow news day and nothing interests me more than Peter O'Toole. The world is poised to see how well Grindhouse does tomorrow.
