    Jessica Alba, Michael Sheen, Val Kilmer & Tim Robbins Join Will Ferrell's Wild IFC Miniseries 'Spoils Of Babylon'

    Yes, Will Ferrell is doing a miniseries but don't worry, he's not attempting to be a Serious Actor again (though, to be fair, he's pretty good at the more dramatic stuff.) Nope, he's going into the world of overwrought soap operas again (territory he covered with the more Mexican flavored "Case De M...
