A Not So Jolly Holiday with Mary

On Saturday Night Live this past weekend, Anne Hathaway not only spoofed her Princess Diaries co-star Julie Andrews' Oscar winning role as Mary Poppins, she also revealed the heretofore unknown definition of "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious". Click here to watch.

And speaking of Anne Hathaway, she has signed on to play the White Queen in Tim Burton's upcoming version of Alice in Wonderland. Plus, in news as surprising as Johnny Depp playing the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter will be the Red Queen, she of "Off with her head!" fame. Furthermore, Little Britain's Matt Lucas is onboard as both Tweedles, Dee and Dum, along with Michael Sheen in an unspecified role (the March Hare? The Caterpillar? The White Rabbit? The possibilities are endless).

UPDATE: Crispin Glover has joined the cast of Alice in Wonderland as the Knave of Hearts, while Alan Rickman will play the hookah-smoking Catapiller and (another no-brainer) Danny Elfman will do the score. And rumor has it that Michael Sheen will be the Cheshire Cat, while Christopher Lee is now the one onboard in the "unspecified role" (I can see him as the Mock Turtle though).
