FILM: Victoria Beckham to act in "Hardy Men"

Tom Cruise and Ben Stiller have been planning to put the The Hardy Boys detective novels on screen as an updated adult comedy called The Hardy Men. It's slated for a 2009 release, Brit Simon Kinberg (Jumper and Mr. & Mrs. Smith) is writing, and Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) is directing.

While all of that sounds legit and possibly entertaining--Cruise doing intentional comedy should be a nice change of pace--it confuses me as to why Victoria Beckham has been tapped to play a small part and to design the film's costumes. Nepotism at its worst.
