MALCOLM IN THE MONEY
Malcolm in the Middle star and current TV Guide cover boy Frankie Muniz is in talks to star as a James Bond-esque teen in the big-screen adventure Agent Cody Bank. According to Variety, the 16-year-old actor would be paid $2 million for his work on the film, making him the highest paid child movie star since Macaulay Culkin was left Home Alone again. The plot of Cody centers on a teen (Muniz) drafted by the U.S. government for covert missions.
