Olivia Wilde joins Year One

Though it would appear that with the lacklustre showing of Walk Hard in American cinemas, that the Apatow backlash has begun, we can’t help but get excited about anything the bearded comedy god puts his fingers on.

So of course we’re looking forward to Harold Ramis’ new movie Year One, a Biblical comedy that finds the likes of Jack Black, Superbad’s Christopher Mintz-Plasse (McLovin’ himself), David Cross and, er, Vinnie Jones doing their best to make us laugh in ancient times.

And now they have a lady to help with the mirth making as Olivia Wilde, last seen screaming it up in Turistas has joined the cast as Princess Inanna, the love interest for Black’s character.

Variety has the scoop .
