James Marsden / 2 Guns

For a project that began as a buddy comedy that reunited Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, Two Guns has changed a lot over the years. The film adaptation of Steven Grant's graphic novel follows two undercover agents who work together to steal money from the mafia, without knowing that the other is undercover or that they're actually being set up to steal $50 million from the CIA. Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg are now in the lead roles, with Contraband director Baltasar Kormakur directing. Variety now reports that former Cyclops James Marsden has joined the cast as Wahlberg's boss, a naval commander. More below!

Marsden joins a pretty great cast, which includes Paula Patton as Denzel's love interest, Bill Paxton as a high-ranking CIA operative, and Edward James Olmos, who just signed on as the villain a few days ago. It's going to be strange to see the 38-year-old Marsden bark orders to a 41-year-old Wahlberg, but perhaps there's some humor mixed in that we don't know about yet. Marsden is well-equipped to handle comedy, considering his recent run on NBC's "30 Rock" and his work in the underrated 2008 film Sex Drive. But after being underwhelmed with the graphic novel on which Two Guns is based, I hope the movie version beefs up the story a bit and that these talented actors can make it work on the big screen.
