In today's roundup, talented people who are wandering outside their previously established talent boundaries!
> Scarlett Johansson and Sean "Jack from Will & Grace" Hayes will star in a Broadway production of Neil Simon's "Promises Promises" -- which Nylon predicts will be "kinda like Mad Men with a pop vocal score."
> Sleater-Kinney alum Carrie Brownstein and Shin's front man James Mercer will make their uberunderstated film debut in Some Days are Better Than Others, a rainy day art house flick by Portland indie wunderkind Matt McCormick touted as "a sad valentine to the forgotten discards of a throwaway society." :)
> Club DJ Samantha Ronson will make a cameo on the November 3rd episode of 90210, playing club DJ Samantha Ronson. Which might not really count as doing something outside her usual realm of expertise, but hey, not everyone gets to just be themselves in the best TV remake that never should have been made.
