Now I'm getting worried about the Road movie

Gag. They've added Kirsten Dunst to the cast of On The Road. Click here for details. You literally cannot tell Kirsten Dunst and actress Julia Stiles apart (see above), which says a lot about her memorability factor. Plus she can't act worth a hoot.

PLEASE, Mr. Salles, be careful with casting.
