Let the games begin! No, we're not talking about the Olympics — we're talking about the race to become Jack Ryan's love interest in the franchise relaunch that will star heartthrob Chris Pine as the famous CIA analyst (previously played by the likes of Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck).
Buzz around Tinseltown is that beauties Keira Knightley, "Like Crazy" star Felicity Jones and "Lost"'s Evangeline Lilly are all circling the script for this high-profile role — which involves options that would potentially put the actress in three separate movies. Get More »

Felicity Jones' short career has won her numerous accolades, including her recent win for breakthrough actor at the Gotham Independent Film Awards, but an upcoming film will have the beautiful star playing something she's likely unaccustomed to – being the other woman.
The Daily Mail reports that Jones will play Charles Dickens' young mistress, Nelly Ternan, in the Ralph Fiennes-directed "The Invisible Woman."
The film, based on the Claire Tomalin book "The Invisible Woman: The Story Of Charles Dickens & Nelly Ternan," reveals the relationship between the married "Great Expectations" author and Ternan, who stayed with the 45-year-old Dickens from the time she was 18 until his death 13 years later.

The 27-year-old Brit from Birmingham plays Anna, an English coed at a California college who falls truly, madly, deeply in love with Anton Yelchin's Jacob, but when she tests Customs and overstays her visa, the two must suffer a continent apart.
Jones, who won an acting prize at this year's Sundance, is drawing crazy amounts of praise for her heavily improvised role in the intimate drama that's like "Before Sunrise" for the long-distance set. Get More »
