"The Hunger Games" star Elizabeth Banks has a very Effie Trinket-esque — only, add a sense of humor — role in the upcoming sing-off flick "Pitch Perfect." For the "Clueless" meets "Glee" meets "Bring It On" movie, Banks serves as a producer and an actress, which means fans will get to see her work her magic with hilarious one-liners starting this Friday.
When it comes to these types of zany roles, Banks is on point at every turn, so, to celebrate her latest we decided to hash out some of her quirkiest, most Effie-like portrayals to-date. Get More »
Paul Rudd, who has been on a roll lately, has just landed another one — a role, that is. Word around Tinseltown is that the funny guy du jour is gearing up to headline "Admission," directed by Paul Weitz (of "American Pie" and "About a Boy" fame).

NBC recently posted a gallery of Jordan film posters, and some enterprising web folks have taken things a step further, all for your viewing enjoyment. Get More »
Tanit Phoenix is a temptress of many trades.
Aside from speaking three languages and being a multi-talented dancer and martial artist, the South Africa native is also making headway as a hot rising star in Hollywood. Now appearing in "Death Race 2" (on Blu-ray and DVD today) in which she plays perhaps the sexiest convict who ever lived (and which was filmed in her homeland), Phoenix is currently shooting an epic 13-part series for HBO called "Femme Fatales."
Amidst her busy schedule, Phoenix took some time to tell us what feeds her pop culture fix. Get More »
In his new film "127 Hours," James Franco's character cuts off his own arm to escape death. And we're really hoping that's a special effect considering how skillfully, of late, the actor has been merging his art with his real life.
Like a kid in a candy store, Franco's applied his varied talents -- and the resources of his fame -- to play a series of postmodern practical jokes on the world while giving the finger to all who'd rather he play the vapid pretty boy. Get More »
