Patton Oswalt cast as Vizzini in Jason Reitman's Princess Bride Live Read. Could he have picked anyone better?

Enter obligatory "Inconceivable!" pun here...
Well, he could have picked Wallace Shawn, I guess.
I am somewhat confused about the whole thing though. Is this actually for a remake, or just for a live read people can go and watch?
Ivalaine, it's the second one. Which makes it infinitely more okay with the fanboys. Because it's more like playing pretend - just with really awesome actors.

I feel like Mindy Kaling is on the verge of becoming a superstar with all the press she's been getting from these readings and her book. Oh, and The Office.
Maybe someone can clear something up for me - what, exactly, does it take for an actor to become "one of ours"? I they just have to work with Joss once or twice? 'cause...that's a whole lotta folks to be in our 'verse. That'd be like...every single person who ever guest starred on "Buffy," "Angel," "Firefly" or "Dollhouse."

So like for instance...Musetta Vander. Willie Garson. Conchata Ferrell. Melinda Clarke. And that's just off the top of my head.
