It was announced yesterday that Spike Jonze's mysterious new movie, "Her," about a man (played by Joaquin Phoenix) who falls in love with his Siri-like operating system, would be released by Warner Bros on November 20th. And today it was revealed that two previously unreported, very exciting cast members will make appearances in Jonze's film: Scarlett Johansson and Chris Pratt.
It is unclear, of course, what roles the actors play (although it is conceivable that Johansson could voice the computer, especially if the settings on the computer call for "breathlessly sexy"). They join previously announced cast members Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Samantha Morton, and Olivia Wilde. This is going to be good. Get More »
It's every low-budget independent filmmaker's first thought after completing a movie doomed for film festival obscurity (or worse): Man, if only we could have remade that, but had like a billion more dollars and big time movie stars instead of whatever yahoos we cast in this thing. Well, dreams really do come true. At least if you're French-Canadian filmmaker Ken Scott, who got to remake his 2011 film "Starbuck" (itself a loose remake of a Hindi movie called "Vicky Donor") as "The Delivery Man," only this time bankrolled by DreamWorks and featuring a cast that includes Vince Vaughn, Cobie Smulders and Chris Pratt. Not too shabby, Ken Scott! The first teaser has dropped (courtesy of Fandango via The Film Stage) and while there isn't a whole lot of footage to go on, we still giggled. You heard us. Giggled.

You will now refer to Andy Dwyer of "Parks and Recreation" as "Lord."
"Star-Lord," to be exact, as Chris Pratt will be blasting off as the first official cast member of the strangest (so far) of the Marvel films, "Guardians of the Galaxy," according to Deadline.
Pratt has been cast in the role of Peter Quill, the offspring of an alien father and human mother whose career as a NASA astronaut takes a bizarre turn when he comes across a group of beings (one of which is a talking raccoon; another of which is a talking tree-thing) from another time and dimension. He reinvents himself as Star-Lord and leads the team in their quest to rid the universe of extraterrestrial menace. Get More »
Attending a 10 year high school reunion is a bit like a time warp. People are the same, but they're not. They look the same, but, then again, they totally don't.
With "10 Years" arriving in theaters this Friday and rocking a class list we really wish we were on — from Channing Tatum and Justin Long to Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Rosario Dawson — we thought it'd be fun to see what the actors were up to just a decade ago. Some of it might surprise you, and some of it you probably already know.
Before you flip through our pseudo-yearbook: If you're looking for a glimpse at what the actors looked like in high school, check out the official "10 Years" Tumblr (but we promise this is no less humorous). And, lastly, you won't find Aubrey Plaza, one of the other awesome stars in this movie, in this gallery. We simply couldn't find any photos of her that pre-dated 2006, but it wasn't for lack of love or effort.
Well, it looks like Hollywood was definitely hiring today.
Show business is apparently still booming, as Diane Kruger, Chris Pratt, Lucas Till, Mos Def, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Octavia Spencer and even "Adventures in Babysitting" star Elisabeth Shue all scored new gigs today, according to various sources.
Kruger, whom we just can't wait to see as The Seeker in "The Host" next year, is hitting the history books as she's joined the cast of another Abraham Lincoln movie, "The Green Blade Rises," according to Deadline. She'll be playing Sarah Lincoln, Abe's stepmother, in a film that to our knowledge will feature neither vampires nor Daniel Day-Lewis. Get More »
You won't have to wait for the "Justice League" movie to see Batman and Superman team up on the big screen.
Well, sort of. The LEGO versions of the DC superheroes are set to join forces in "LEGO: The Piece of Resistance," according to Variety.
"LEGO: The Piece of Resistance" tells the story of Emmet (voiced by Chris Pratt), an ordinary LEGO mini-figure who's mistaken for the extraordinary MasterBuilder and subsequently drafted into a fellowship of strangers on a quest to stop an evil tyrant from gluing the universe together.
Somehow, both Batman (voiced by Will Arnett) and Superman (hopefully voiced by Channing Tatum) fit into this epic adventure ... and we have a feeling a few other LEGO-ized pop culture characters may make appearances as well. Get More »
No joke! Comedienne Anna Faris is pregnant with her first child.
The "Dictator" star and her "Moneyball" hubby Chris Pratt confirmed the news to People, via her rep. While this is a big step forward for the couple who've been married nearly three years, it should come as no surprise. Get More »
Is it a coincidence that NBC Universal's goofy and charming new rom-com "The Five-Year Engagement" is studded with actors from its Thursday-night lineup? Even "30 Rock" boss Jack Donaghy couldn't come up with a better plan.
Emily Blunt and Jason Segel are the stars, of course, as you can see from the ads featuring their enormous(ly lovely) faces on billboards, buses, and bus stops everywhere. Over the course of the movie's 124 minutes, viewers soon find themselves treated to appearances by some of the funniest young actors on the scene. Get More »
Sitcom star Chris Pratt has taken a couple of unexpected career detours recently -- his charming role as baseball player Scott Hatteberg in "Moneyball" for instance -- but now it appears that he might be about to do something that his notoriously lazy "Parks and Recreation" character Andy Dwyer probably couldn't dream of: Kill Osama bin Laden.
Hey, it's good work if you can get it. Get More »
Hollywood hotties Rosario Dawson and Lynn Collins are the latest classmates to sign on for "Ten Year," a drama about friends reuniting (you guessed it!) a decade after their graduation.
Dawson and Collins join co-stars Jenna Dewan, Kate Mara and Anna Faris to round out the female contingent of the group, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Brian Geraghty, Justin Long, Channing Tatum, Chris Pratt, Chris Pine, Anthony Mackie and Scott Porter comprise the (somewhat heftier) guys' side. Get More »
