From Turistas to Tron - two beautiful actresses have joined Disney's Tr2n. Olivia Wilde, of Alpha Dog, Turistas, and "House", and Beau Garrett, of Turistas, Fantastic Four 2, and Made of Honor, have both officially joined the sequel. Wilde will play a worker in the virtual world who tries to help fight Master Control Program, the villainous intelligence protocol that was the nemesis in the original film. Garrett will play an unspecified virtual beauty. Jeff Bridges will also reprise his role in what is being called the "next chapter" in the Tron story. Disney wants to shoot in the spring and have Tr2n in theaters by 2011.
This casting news, which comes from both the Hollywood Reporter and Variety, confirms that the supposed name change has not taken place. As far as we know, this is still titled Tr2n or Tron 2.0 and not TRZ. In addition to Jeff Bridges, the primary male lead has not been cast yet. Joseph Kosinski, who we've mentioned previously, is still directing the sequel and it looks like Disney is moving forward 100% on it. I've got nothing bad to say about these two actresses - they look like fine additions to the cast. Tr2n is now officially on its way to becoming one of the most highly anticipated projects of the next few years.
is it jsut me or, is every hot chick doing a blockbuster. First megan fox, then odette yustman, now olivia wilde. Wow, there is definitley good reasons to see movies now.

***I am patiently waiting for the announcement that Disney has cast someone completely ridiculous for the primary male lead like Shia Lebeouf or Zach Efron so I can officially write this movie off***

Alex, you didn't mention that Olivia Wilde was also on a NBC show titled "The Black Donnellys" which aired for one season. It's a shame that got cancelled because it was actually pretty good. More on point, two thumbs for Wilde.

Olivia Wilde FTW! Yes Black Donnellys was a great show, I don't know how it could have been canceled, especially with all the CSI and CSI clones out there it was really refreshing.

I enjoy Olivia Wilde's performance on "House", so I will definately look forward to this.
