According to The Wrap (via The Playlist), Kristen Wiig is in talks to join the upcoming drama Nasty Baby, alongside TV On The Radio frontman and sometimes actor Tunde Adebimpe. The movie will see two men (Adebimpe and director Sebastian Silva himself), who enlist their best friend Anna to help them have a baby. But when the sperm of one of the dudes isn’t working, the responsibility shifts to the other and problems arise. The picture will be set in Fort Greene, Brooklyn and will play against its multicultural backdrop, but even more, it’s lining up a solid supporting cast. Alia Shawkat and Mark Margolis are slated along withDennis O’Hare and Reg. E Cathey. Sounds pretty interesting, right? What do you think of the latest project?
Kristen Wiig’s profile in Hollywood sure has risen in the past year.

Can you imagine Kristen being top-billed after Johnny Depp? So exciting, and so well-deserved. Really hoping she’ll get the part!
