'Mad Men' Actresses Brie and Spencer Cast in New Films

Two of Mad Men's lovely ladies are making the leap to the big screen next year.

The Hollywood Reporter's "Heat Vision" reports that Mad Men and Community star Alison Brie has joined the cast of the upcoming horror flick Scream 4, following the recent casting of Adam Brody, Marley Shelton, and Eric Knudsen. Original Scream stars Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and Courtney Cox are all on board for the fourth film in the franchise, and the new movie will also feature Emma Roberts as another main character. Heat Vision reports that Brie is playing Rebecca, Campbell's "ambitious personal assistant who secretly envies her boss' reluctant fame and fortune." The movie has already begun shooting in Michigan, and is scheduled to be released on April 15, 2011. 

Abigail Spencer is also making the transition from Mad Men to the big screen. The actress, who played a supporting role as Don Draper's mistress in the most recent season of the AMC series, has been cast in DreamWorks and Universal's Cowboys and Aliens, according to THR's "Heat Vision". She will be joining a cast that includes Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig, Sam Rockwell, and Olivia Wilde. The film is based on a Platinum Studios graphic novel about cowboys and indians rising up against invading aliens. Spencer will play a prostitute and former love interest of Craig who helps him to change his mannerisms. This is Spencer's studio feature debut. John Favreau (Iron Man 2) is directing the sci-fi film, which will be released on July 29, 2011.

With Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson teaming up again to work on Scream 4, Brie and the rest of the star-studded cast should make a great horror film and see a lot of success. Spencer will also be joining a strong cast in Cowboys and Aliens, a film that seems to be generating a lot of interest, so it should be able to make a big splash in theaters.

Do you think both actresses will be successful in their new roles? Who has the better chance of becoming a bona fide movie star? Leave your comments to let us know.
