Liam Neeson / Giovanni Ribisi

After a couple of lovely ladies in the form of Charlize Theron and Amanda Seyfried joined Seth MacFarlane's western comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West, it's time for male co-stars to join the Ted director and co-star. THR has word that Liam Neeson and Giovanni Ribisi are both taking roles. The story follows a cowardly sheep farmer (MacFarlane) who chickens out of a gunfight, causing his woman (Seyfried) to leave him for another man. But the mysterious wife (Theron) of an outlaw rides into town, helps him find courage and makes him fall in love all over again. But when the woman's husband returns, there's trouble.

The farmer must stand up to the outlaw, which is the role meant for Neeson, and defend his honor. As for Ribisi, we're not sure what role he'll be taking, but it was offered to Jonah Hill, and he passed. Honestly, I'm more interested in Ribisi doing more comedy anyway, especially after his hilariously creepy turn in Ted last year. This is quite an interesting assembly of talent for a comedy, especially since Neeson doesn't usually do lighter fare like this. With a script from Ted writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild (who wrote it with MacFarlane), I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how this turns out.
