Jessica Biel, Jason Bateman and More Slated for Jimmy Kimmel Oscar Afterparty

Originally posted 02/16/2012 04:35PM

Oprah Winfrey is not the only big star staying up late after the Oscars next Sunday. PEOPLE has learned that there are even more celebrities joining Jimmy Kimmel's seventh post-Oscar special!

Jessica Biel, new dad (again) Jason Bateman, JJ Abrams, Steven Tyler, Tyler Perry, Edward Norton, Colin Farrell and Ryan Philippe are on board for the show's big bit "Movie the Movie."

Given the show's history, it's promising – even if Samuel L. Jackson has choice words for those potentially involved (ABC previously announced Meryl Streep, George Clooney and Tom Hanks.) Check out a very bleeped teaser here: Moviethemovie.com.

It should come as no surprise that the skit will push the envelope. Kimmel's annual special has produced LOL-worthy comedy pieces in the past including "F*@#ing Ben Affleck," "Handsome Men's Club," "Hottie Body Hump Club" and "Tom Hanks's Toddlers in Tiaras".

JACKSON TO GET 'SHAFT'

Originally posted 04/23/1999 12:00AM

Samuel L. Jackson is in final negotiations to play the title character in a remake of the 1971 action film "Shaft," reports Variety. Director John Singleton plans to shoot this summer from a script by Richard Price. The original -- starring Richard Roundtree as a handsome, tough-talking private detective enlisted by a Harlem mob boss to rescue his kidnapped daughter -- was directed by Gordon Parks and featured a memorable score by Isaac Hayes (currently the voice of Chef on "South Park"). It was considered perhaps the best in the wave of blaxploitation cinema in the early 1970s.
