Marc Blucas is suiting up for 20th Century Fox's "Starship Dave," starring Eddie Murphy and directed by Brian Robbins. Blucas will play Elizabeth Banks' neighbor, who is smitten by her and sidetracked by Murphy's curiously entertaining character, a spaceship in the form of a human. Blucas next stars opposite Emily Blunt in Sony Classics' "Jane Austen Book Club" as well as Gideon Raff's indie film "The Killing Floor." Blucas is repped by Endeavor, Industry and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller. … Alicia Coppola and Joel Gretsch have booked roles in the Walt Disney Co.'s "National Treasure: Book of Secrets."

Hazen recently finished work as a lead in the indie feature "Shrooms" and recurs on Noggin's "Beyond the Break." Her credits include ABC's "Brothers & Sisters" and HBO's "The Comeback."
