discuss: the spoils of babylon trailer
see kristen wiig in many wigs.
Good news for all Kristen Wiig and Tobey Maguire Ferrell fans out there! The comedic duo are just two members of the truly epic cast of IFC's new miniseries, The Spoils of Babylon, set to debut in 2014. Rounding out the cast are Will Ferrell, Jessica Alba, Val Kimler, Haley Joel Osment, and Michael Sheen.
Centering around a family of oil barons, the series will span a century and include plenty of wig changes for Wiig, '70s outfits on Maguire, and lots and lots of laughs. The series is adapted from a book by Eric Jonrosh of the same name, that looks about as long as a Game of Thrones tome, but with the bold, sappy cover of a James Patterson novel. In the trailer for the series below you can see Wiig wed Sheen in a pink suit holding a cat, Maguire go through a Lou Reed-phase in New York City, Osment in a bowl cut (so hot right now), and Alba as a lab assistant who looks a lot like Daphne from Scooby Doo.
Watch below and get excited for this good ol' fashioned comedy to hit airwaves next year.
