After James Marsden's spirited double in 2007, when he so spoofed the Prince Charming template with abandon in Enchanted "116th and Broadway!" and lept into Hairspray's insanely spirited song & dance, you'd think James Marsden had a bright future in comedy ahead of him. But playing straight man to a CGI bunny with a yen for rock and roll in HOP? Is this really where exceeding expectations about your charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent should put you? Hollywood is a cruel place.
