Mel Gibson hopes a puppet can solve his problems in the trailer for The Beaver

It hasn't been an easy year for Mel Gibson. Maybe all along, he just needed to slip his hand into the ass of an adorable fabric critter rather than pick up the telephone...

We'll see if that works for his character (and career?) when THE BEAVER arrives in 2011, but having Jodie Foster, STAR TREK's Russian whiz kid and a cockney rodent on his side probably can't hurt, right?

The synopsis: Two-time Academy Award winner Jodie Foster directs and co-stars with two-time Academy Award winner Mel Gibson in THE BEAVER - an emotional story about a man on a journey to re-discover his family and re-start his life. Plagued by his own demons, Walter Black was once a successful toy executive and family man who now suffers from depression. No matter what he tries, Walter can't seem to get himself back on track...until a beaver hand puppet enters his life.

Extra Tidbit: Am I the only one who thought this might be more of a madcap comedy, given the premise? And does that puppet sound like Mel's Ray Winstone impression?
