  • Zach Galifianakis is in talks to topline the remake of The Incredible Mr. Limpet, which originally starred Don Knotts as a man who becomes a fish and fights Nazis. Obviously, he’ll play a Wolffish, right? [Los Angeles Times]
  • In a press release, the producers behind David Cromer’s New York production of Our Town announced Helen Hunt would star for four weeks as “stage manager,” a role being vacated by Michael McKean July 4. Bill Paxton cries, “But this is prime tornado season!”
  • Mekia Cox has replaced Jessica Parker Kennedy in J.J. Abrams’ NBC spy drama Undercovers. We’re sure an anagram of Mekia Cox has something to do with the Lost finale…yes we’re still figuring it out. [THR]
  • Director Brian Kirk has signed on to helm two episodes of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Kirk has previously worked on Dexter and Brotherhood. File under: Things that will likely be awesome? [THR]
