Olivia Wilde to play a stripper in BUTTER
Our prayers have been answered guys. Olivia Wilde has just signed on to play an exotic dancer in the new comedy BUTTER, starring Alicia Silverstone and Rob Corddry. The film centers around Silverstone, who encourages her adopted black daughter to enter the local Iowa butter-sculpting contest in an attempt to steal the crown from reigning champion, Ty Burrell.
Jennifer Garner plays Burrell's wife and the film itself looks to be a parody of our country's last Democratic Primary between Hillary Clinton and our current President Barack Obama. So essentially it's THE BLIND SIDE meets MISS FIRECRACKER meets THE CANDIDATE...with butter. Corddry looks to be playing Silverstone's husband in the film but how he fits into the overall political undertone of the film remains a mystery.
Now, I know the second I mentioned Olivia Wilde stripping AND butter in the same breath some of you (and you know who you are) got a little excited. Sadly, Wilde will not incorporate butter into her act, so those bizarre fantasies of yours will have to remain in your twisted imagination for now.
Wilde should have some fun with this character since she is said to be sharp-witted and full of sarcasm, a quality all strippers should have! With Wilde appearing in TRON and now as a striptease artist in BUTTER, it looks like geek dreams really do come true.
