Reese Witherspoon is Ginormica

In this new promo pic released by Paramount Pictures, Reese Witherspoon poses next to her character Susan Murphy (Ginormica) in the upcoming animated flick, Monsters vs. Aliens.

Ginormica was once hit by a meteor filled with a strange substance that mutated her DNA, causing her to grow 49 feet 11 inches tall. Monsters vs. Aliens opens in theaters March 27.

Also pictured: Seth Rogen (B.O.B.), Will Arnett (The Missing Link), Hugh Laurie (Dr. Cockroach), Rainn Wilson (Galaxhar) and Paul Rudd (Derek Dietl). I love looking at these promos and comparing the actors with their monster/alien counterparts!

Rainn Wilson Kidnaps Jenna Fischer

The Office star Rainn Wilson has kidnapped his costar Jenna Fischer. Here’s the hilarious ransom note (and shameless movie plug) he left on her MySpace blog:

“Hey there Jenna‘s MySpacers! My name is Rainn Wilson and I’ve kidnapped the lovely Jenna, put her, bound, in the trunk of my firebird and logged onto her MySpace to send out this bulletin.

To free America’s sweetheart, Pam Beesly, one half of the magic which is ‘Jam’, you must attend my new movie, The Rocker, which opens August 20th. As soon as the film grosses 18.7 Mil, she will be released and given a peach smoothie.

I’ve also recently discovered that August 20th is truly a special and historic day. Estonia achieved it’s independence! Sting got married to Trudy Skyler! What better way to celebrate the magic of Sting and Estonia than by seeing what is perhaps the greatest film ever made (about a heavy metal drummer).

Many of you have perhaps seen posters of me in my leopard briefs, or the trailers in which my balls get racked by a power strip. And, although the film WILL be adored by legions of teen-aged male Dwight fans, it will also be loved by the whole GD family, including Amish cousins. It truly is a fun and lovely coming-of-age, rock n’roll comedy and good reviews are coming in, including two thumbs up from Ebert and Roeper and also from my son, Walter (who has three of them).

Also, if you’re a fan of: Will Arnett, Christina Applegate, Jason Sudeikis, Jane Lynch, Emma Stone, Jeff Garlin, Demitri Martin, Fred Armisen, Bradley Cooper, Pope Benedick III, WINGS (the show and/or the back-up band), coral reefs, soup, Former Mayor Ed Koch, the guy who played Norm on Cheers, baby Suri, dairy, Coldplay, Animal Planet or the letter “Q”…

YOU WILL LOVE THIS MOVIE! So… Please spend your 10.50$ American on THE ROCKER, get yourself a popcorn and a Mountain Dew, bring 1800 of your closest friends so that 1) Jenna gets a smoothie and 2) They let me be in another movie someday. That is all.

Rainn Wilson as Lucy Lawless as Xena: Warrior Princess

The Office star Rainn Wilson looks frackin’ hilarious as Xena: Warrior Princess, who was originally played by Lucy Lawless.

Rainn tells Entertainment Weekly, “I always watched Xena because it was oddly titillating, and I kept wanting to see more cleavage. I wanted it to be Baywatch with swords but it never quite went in that direction.”

He adds, “[I look like] the chunky girl from Heart… Basically, I look like a ravishing lesbian. Don’t you?”

Pick up the latest issue of EW to see Rainn impersonating MacGyver, Star Trek‘s Captain Picard, and The Sopranos’ Paulie Walnuts.
