Role Reversal 

This blog rarely comments on gender issues in Hollywood, but this caught my eye, in an article announcing that they will make Ocean's 13:
However, the sultryEllen Barkin will keep the estrogen quotient in check this time around and, as Weintraub told Variety, she'll be heating up the screen with Damon's character, Linus.
Ellen Barkin will turn 52 on April 16; Matt Damon is 36. I have to applaud the studio and producers for reversing the normal Hollywood gender roles. I think more likely would be paring Carl Reiner's character with Mischa Barton, so this is some refreshing thinking. Good for them.
