Tim Blake Nelson joining Drew Barrymore on “Whale” ride


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Tim Blake Nelson wants to save the whales. On screen, at least.

The actor-director who was last seen sharing the screen with Edward Norton for the obscure “Leaves of Grass,” will join Drew Barrymore and John Krasinski in “Everybody Loves Whales.” No, it’s not a spin-off of the popular CBS sitcom, “Everybody Loves Raymond.” It’s an environmental drama set in 1988 that centers on a reporter (Krasinski) and a Greenpeace volunteer (Barrymore) racing to save three whales who are trapped beneath the ice of the Arctic Circle.

Nelson would play a wildlife expert, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Kristen Bell also has been cast in “Whales,” which is based on Tom Rose’s nonfiction book, “Freeing the Whales: How the Media Created the World’s Greatest Non-Event.”

Ken Kwapis is attached to direct. He previously worked with Krasinski on “License to Wed” and Barrymore on “He’s Just Not That Into You.” It’s expected that “Whales” would start filming this fall for a 2011 release.
