After showing her comedic chops in Bridesmaids, the former Damages star plays a new mom who, in addition to adjusting to parenthood with her husband (Seth Rogen), is in for an even bigger shock when a frat moves in next door. Byrne's character spends much of the film plotting revenge with her husband, but is also envious that the years of her unattached youth are in the past.

Who's more terrifying: Walter White or Godzilla? In his first post-Breaking Bad screen role, Cranston plays Joe Brody, the father of Aaron Taylor-Johnson's character who works at the nuclear plant that explodes in 1999 and threatens to release radiation.

Jon Hamm, Million Dollar Arm
Hamm trades in a Madison Avenue boardroom for a baseball stadium in this drama based on actual events. The Mad Men star plays real-life sports agent J.B. Bernstein, who travels to India to recruit baseball players through a reality competition he created called Million Dollar Arm.

Peter Dinklage, Shawn Ashmore, Evan Peters and Anna Paquin, X-Men: Days of Future Past
Ashmore (The Following) and Paquin (True Blood) reprise their respective roles as Iceman and Rogue for the first time since 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand. Paquin's role has been cut down to that of a cameo (but better than nothing, right?). Game of Thrones' Dinklage joins the franchise as Bolivar Trask, the creator of the Sentinels who are designed to destroy mutants, while Peters (American Horror Story) will bring the supersonic speedster Quicksilver to life.

Seth MacFarlane, Neil Patrick Harris and Sarah Silverman, A Million Ways to Die in the West
Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane plays Albert, a sheep farmer in the Old West who loses his fickle girlfriend Louise (Amanda Seyfried) when he chickens out of a gunfight. She turns to the much more successful Foy, played by How I Met Your Mother's Neil Patrick Harris, who runs the town's fancy "moustachery." Finally, comedian Sarah Silverman gets raunchy as usual when she takes on the role of Ruth, a prostitute who won't have sex with her own fiance (Giovanni Ribisi) because, you know, they're not married yet.

Nick Offerman, 22 Jump Street
Offerman reprises his role as Deputy Chief Hardy in this 21 Jump Street sequel, delivering his lines with the same disinterest and condescension fans love in his Parks and Recreation character, Ron Swanson. "Ladies, no one gave a sh-- about the Jump Street reboot, but you got lucky" Offerman deadpans. And even though he's Jenko and Schmidt's superior, here's hoping we get to see more of Hardy getting in on the action because there really is no such thing as too much Offerman.

Chris Pratt, Guardians of the Galaxy
The Parks and Recreation funnyman got into superhero shape for this comic book adaptation. Pratt plays Peter Quill, otherwise known as Star-Lord, the leader of a rag-tag group of extraterrestrials who realize it's their duty to save the galaxy. Yet even with that responsibility, Quill remains a kid at heart — just one who's also an alien-fighting badass.

Set in a dystopian 2031, the world has been plunged into a new Ice Age after an experiment to counteract global warming goes awry. The survivors live in a caste-driven society in which the elites live in the front of a perpetual motion train, while the lower-class eke out an existence in the tail end. Curtis (Chris Evans) is the leader of the latest tail revolt to take over the train, and his second-in-command is Edgar, played by Turn star Jamie Bell. The Newsroom's Alison Pill is Teacher, who instructs the upper class kids on the train and has a surprisingly violent side when she's pushed to defend what she thinks is right.

Mom star Janney doesn't stray too far from her small-screen role, playing Tammy's mother. Duplass (The League, The Mindy Project) and Oh, fresh off her exit from Grey's Anatomy, have small roles as people Tammy and Pearl encounter on their travels.

If you didn't get enough of naked Segel in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, then Sex Tape is for you. The How I Met Your Mother alum plays Jay, a man who spices up his marriage to his wife Annie (Cameron Diaz) by filming a sex tape together. Unfortunately, the hapless Jay accidentally uploads the video to the cloud, and thereby sending it to the various iPads the couple gave away as Christmas gifts.
