Looks like Dylan McDermott has had enough of playing good guys.

"The Practice" star is in talks to star opposite Jennifer Lopez in the thriller "Enough," Daily Variety says.

In the film, McDermott would play an abusive husband who pursues Lopez to the bitter end.

PILLOW TALK: Emmy winner Allison Janney will join Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman and Julianne Moore in the drama "The Hour," Variety columnist Michael Fleming says. The film is based on Michael Cunningham's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, which is an homage to writer Virginia Woolf.

Janney will play Streep character's lesbian lover. Also joining the cast are Claire Danes and Ed Harris.

A 'ONE' AND A TWO: Jet Li's going to have company for his next project. Variety reports that Delroy Lindo ("Gone in 60 Seconds") and Jason Statham ("Snatch") will join the martial arts guru in the sci-fi actioner "The One."

Statham and Lindo will play cops who patrols the border between different universes. Li will play a space renegade bent on crashing their planet.

LOOKING FOR 'GOD': Funnyman Billy Connolly will join Judy Davis in the flick "The Man Who Sued God," Variety says. Connolly will play a fisherman who tries to sue God when his boat is struck by lightning.

THE OTHER SEX: Last but not least, "Murphy Brown" creator Diane English will direct "The Women" -- a remake of the 1939 George Cukor flick about the relationships among a coterie of high-society women, Variety reports.
