Hmmm, while I really didn't dig "Ocean's 12" - this just MIGHT get me interested in the next sequel:
Manilow, Dion and Cohen for Thirteen?
With Julia Roberts and Catherine Zeta Jones benched from the next “Ocean’s” instalment, Warners are apparently chasing some names to fill their conspicuous absence.
According to Sky News, veteran crooners Barry Manilow and Celine Dion are in talks for roles – or, I’m guessing, cameos – in “Ocean’s Thirteen”, with British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, best known as Ali G, also in talks for a role.
Whilst it would be a treat seeing Ali or Borat teaming with the casino robbing twelve for the film, Clooney tells the site that Cohen would be playing a new character – though no less kooky than his famous alter-egos.
"I think he's a great actor and I've written a role exclusively for him. I know he's a fan of my work and we're hooking up together soon”, says the former TV doc. “He will be an oddball character”.

"Oceans 13" seems to be correcting all the mistakes of the last sequel (namely: moving the action back to Las Vegas, no Catherine Zeta-Jones, little to no Julia Roberts).
Having Sacha on-board may be the icing on the cake.

:unsure: Not sure myself. BTW, I'm using my PDA to post. Surprised to be able to do that! Very nice! Can patrol the board more now.

Didn't hear many good things about 12. Although if the cast are all returning yet again it would be a good sign.
Wasn't there something about them constantly quoting Ali G during the making of 12?

Actually, there are a few cast members who won't be returning. So in other words, it's screwed! :hitler:

Not really... the full "11" crew, Andy Garcia and Julia Roberts (in a cameo, likely) are back.
The only castmember who 100% isn't returning is Catherine Zeta-Jones. Her off-screen relationship with Brad Pitt falls somewhere between "intense loathing" and "absolute hatred" so it's understandable.
Besides, they're adding Sacha, Jennifer Lopez (probably) and freakin' Al Pacino to the cast. How bad can it be?
Totally unrelated trivia: did you know that Bruce Willis turned down the Andy Garcia role in "Oceans 11"?

OK, that definitely sounds alot more promising.
