Another “love interest” signs up for Year One

Variety reports that Olivia Wilde is joining the cast of Year One, Judd Apatow and Harold Ramis’s so-called “biblical comedy”, to play “Princess Inanna, the love interest of Black’s character.” Interestingly, June Raphael was hired last month to play a woman named Maya who also becomes involved with the Jack Black character — but Variety says Princess Inanna will be the “female lead”. Incidentally, according to Wikipedia, “Inanna” was the name of “the Sumerian goddess of sexual love, fertility, and warfare. The Akkadians called her Ishtar.” A clue as to the movie’s setting?
