John Cusack is gonna be in action-thriller mode for "The Numbers Station," where he'll play "a disgraced black-ops agent tasked with a dead-end job of protecting a code operator for an isolated covert CIA broadcast station." Malin Akerman will also be in it. Also in the movie? Your mom. (OK, that was immature. Your mom is not in this movie.) [Showblitz/Variety]

Katheryn Winnick has appeared on "CSI," "CSI: NY," "Law & Order," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" and "Bones." Now she's going to be in "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III," the Charlie Sheen comeback vehicle being written and directed by Roman Coppola. By the way, is it "Charles Swan" or "Charlie Swan"? We've seen it both ways. Get your facts straight, Internet. [Variety]

Kevin Durand has been in "I Am Number Four," "Real Steel" and "Robin Hood," and he's just signed up for "Resident Evil: Distribution" and "The Truth." Yes, he's probably been asked if he ever gets confused with Kevin Durant, so don't ask him, roundtable junketeers. [Variety]
