Olivia Wilde is a Butter flavored stripper. Also, Hugh Jackman.

This upcoming comedy BUTTER is pulling in quite an intriguing cast. So far it's got Jennifer Garner, Rob Corddry, Ty Burrell (the clueless dad of "Modern Family"), Ashley Greene, Alicia Silverstone (whoa) and now according to Variety, Hugh Jackman.

But perhaps most importantly (at least to my interests) is supersexy Olivia Wilde, who will be playing "a tattooed stripper with a Betty Page hairdo", a role which was originally offered to Kate Hudson before we made out with this superior casting.

The story follows a number of competitive characters in a small Midwestern town as they become entwined in an annual butter-carving contest. Also, it's a satire of the Clinton/Obama showdown in the 2008 Democratic Primary. Obviously.

Wilde, who we'll be seeing in upcoming larger fare like TRON LEGACY and COWBOYS & ALIENS, plays the mistress to a term-limited butter-carving champion (Burrell), with Garner as his Hillaryous wife.

The script by Jason Micalleff was on the Black List of the best unproduced screenplays, and Jim Field Smith (SHE'S OUT OF MY LEAGUE) is directing. The movie is coming from the Weinstein Company, which means there's no way of knowing when you'll actually see it, or what kind of shape it'll be in when you do. Speaking of shape...

Extra Tidbit: If you want more Wilde, go rent TURISTAS, which features her running around in a tiny bikini for 90 minutes. Not a great movie, but it's "more"...
