Bellucci's Private Life

This article should probably have been titled 'Alan Arkin Wins Lottery', but the sidebar only offers us writers so many characters. Keanu Reeves, Maggie Gylenhaal and Monica Bellucci have all signed on to join THE PRIVATE LIVES OF PIPPA LEE with Robin Wright Penn and Alan Arkin. The film is about a 50-something year old housewife (Penn) who starts exploring her sexuality after her husband cheats with a younger woman. Arkin plays the husband. Reeves will play the housewife's young buck, Gylenhaal will play Penn's mother in flash-backs, and in a remarkable twist of fate, Bellucci will play Arkin's ex-wife. And therein lies today's JoBlo.com life lesson: Alan Arkin is 73. Cuba Gooding Jr is 40. That thirty years proves today that there is no substitute for experience. Arkin won an Oscar and used it to finagle himself a film role where he's banging Monica Bellucci, Gooding Jr used his to get himself a role where he's probably banging Greg Kinnear.
Extra Tidbit: Later, Cuba Gooding Jr would cease banging co-stars, and instead rape history itself in PEARL HARBOR.
