Now, Crispin Glover will be getting "Freaky" too, as Variety's Jeff Sneider exclusively reports. In a role originally eyed for William H. Macy, Glover will play Woody Ricks, an alcoholic movie mogul oppostie Tom Arnold, who is in negotiations to play Ricks's brother. "Freaky Deaky," an adaptation of Elmore Leonard's novel, will be helmed by Charlie Matthau.
