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 »

Jennifer Lawrence Plays 'House' In New Horror Trailer


Neighbors: You just never know what you're going to get.

Consider, for instance, the new trailer for "The House at the End of the Street." On the one hand, you could end up with "The Hunger Games" superstar Jennifer Lawrence as your new neighbor. On the other hand, you could also end up with a creepy house that has a serial killer locked in the basement.

Hey, you win some, you lose some. And then you die. Get More »

'Thor' Thor Vs. 'Adventures in Babysitting' Thor

Marvel Studios

Until recently, the closest thing we had to a cinematic embodiment of Marvel's God of Thunder Thor was in the 1987 teen comedy "Adventures in Babysitting." The debut of "Home Alone" director Chris Columbus was another entry in the "teen's getting into mischief while their parents are away and fixing everything moments before they get back home" genre, which also included "Ferris Bueller" and "Risky Business."

In the movie, Elisabeth Shue played a 17-year-old babysitter who goes on a madcap journey through the seedy underbelly of Chicago with her three underage charges. At one point they come to get their car from Dawson's Garage, and discover Dawson looks exactly like comicdom's Thor (and may actually be him).

As we anticipate the coming release of the big-budget feature adaptation of "Thor," we thought it might be good to weigh the pros-and-cons of both Asgardians and see who comes out on top. Get More »

My Favorite Movie: Elisabeth Shue

"My favorite movie of all time is 'Ordinary People.' I've probably watched it—honestly, I don't even know how many times!

"Mary Tyler Moore, Donald Sutherland and Timothy Hutton gave the most unbelievable performances. They grab you from minute one. Their characters suffer an extraordinary loss and are coping in very ordinary, very flawed ways. What makes it so great though, is that despite this, they each find a path to move forward.

"It's both heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time. Few movies capture a spirit like this, and few movies are as relevant 30 years after they were made as this one, which I think makes it a really great film."

Elisabeth Shue stars in the remake of "Piranha," out on DVD and Blu-ray this week.
