    New Look At 'Madagascar 3' Which Now Features The Voice Of The Omnipresent Jessica Chastain

    While Jessica Chastain was in every movie you saw last year, averaging a film every two months, they were largely indie productions, and they likely didn't see her swimming in a pool filled with money. But the actress is now set to take on a gig that will probably earn her a decent check, and be...
