So who's Uma playing in "Be Cool"?


We got a nice scoop from the Rock last week, when we interviewed him. He told us Uma Thurman and Vince Vaughn were joining "Be Cool", the sequel to "Get Shorty". Now, Variety has details on Thurman’s role.

It has now been revealed that Thurman will play the female lead, Edie, in Be Cool. Edie is a widow who takes over her late husband’s record label. That puts her in business with Palmer, the loanshark-turned-movie producer who has entered the music business in search of another film idea.

Thurman will join Travolta, Danny DeVito (reprising his role as actor Martin Weir) and The Rock, who will play a bodyguard/aspiring actor. Peter Steinfeld wrote the script and a February start date is expected.
