Mary Steenburgen's got a lot in the hopper: She's playing Elijah Wood's mom in "Wilfred,"
the FX comedy about a man who see his neighbor's dog as a man in a dog suit (this is going to be comedy gold, I'm predicting); playing a big-haired newspaper editor in your mom's most anticipated movie of the summer, "The Help,"
and starring in a coming of age indie drama
set in 1987 Oklahoma and co-starring Dwight Yoakam and William H. Macy.
Meanwhile, fellow Arkie Billy Bob Thornton is shooting something called "The Baytown Disco" with Eva Longoria.
