Alan Alda set for ‘Wanderlust’ and ‘Tower Heist’

Alan Alda has joined the cast of two anticipated ensemble projects.

First up is a role in the currently filming Wanderlust, starring Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Alda will play the head of the “naturist village” that becomes a destination for urbanites played by Rudd and Aniston. Does this mean the 74 year-old actor will be appearing nude?

Next up is a pivotal role in Brett Ratner’s Tower Heist starring Ben Stiller. The comedic heist movie will see Alda playing a Bernie Madoff type who becomes the target of revenge by blue collar Stiller and his pals. Alda previously appeared with Stiller in the oft-overlooked Flirting with Disaster.┬áBoth projects are from Universal.
