Steve Carell and James Gandolfini Set to Feud in ‘Bone Wars’

What’s funnier than a pair of feuding paleontologists? Nope, I can’t think of anything either. Bone Wars, which already wins an accolade from me for funniest / dumbest title, tells the tale of Edward Drinker Cope and Othniel Charles Marsh (played by Steve Carell and James Gandolfini, respectively), two rival fossil hunters whose personal war led to the discovery of more than 160 dinosaurs. That’s a pretty productive feud! No such feats were on display in Bride Wars, I must say. The film will be produced by HBO Films, which means, unfortunately, it’ll just be on the small screen and likely won’t have any CGI dinosaurs (you know, in case you don’t get your fill after seeing Jurassic Park 3D this weekend). Although, it will have Gandolfini playing a dude named Othniel, which sure is somethin’.
