January Jones may have just stepped out of the dark on "Mad Men" this week, but she's going back in for her role in the Dark Castle flick, "Unknown White Male,"

According to Variety, the story focuses on a man ( Liam Neeson) who wakes up from a coma only to find his identity has been stolen. But he can't convince anyone of this, including his wife, played by Jones.

"Inglorious Basterds" star Diane Kruger will play a character who aids Neeson in setting the record straight.

The Jaume Collet-Serra directed production is set to start shooting in Berlin in January 2010.

-- Can there be too many schmucks at the table? Apparently not. Ron Livingston ("Sex and the City," "Office Space") has joined the Jay Roach-helmed comedy "Dinner for Schmucks."

Livingston joins David Walliams ("Little Britain USA"), Steve Carell, Zach Galifianakis and Paul Rudd for the Paramount picture, according to Variety. The film, slated for summer 2010, focuses on the most pathetic guest to ever grace a weekly dinner gathering.
