Does anybody remember laughter? Laughter, in conjunction with beautiful people holding hands and smiling on red carpets?
In a world where Brangelina, Bennifer, Bennifer 2 and TomKat (sorry, Suri, have a cupcake) have all been earnestly embraced by the media and public at large, we have but one whole-hearted plea: just let us have some fun again. There's nothing wrong with being obsessed with celebrity couples (we are, totally), but you know what else is totally allowed? Laughter.
On that note, please consider throwing your support behind CumberPoots. Or, for the uneducated, Benedict Cumberbatch and Imogen Poots.
In the film, starring such Hollywood heavyweights as Christopher Walken, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Catherine Keener, Poots manages to stand out as Alexandra, a promising young violinist who begins a relationship with her teacher, played by Mark Ivanir, who just so happens to be a member of her parent's quartet that is falling apart. Juicy!
The 23-year-old London native, most recently seen opposite Colin Farrell in "Fright Night," shared with us what it was like to work with some of her idols and whose career path she'd love to follow as her star continues to climb. Get More »
All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• No one can make a "hard sell" movie (with A-list stars, anyway) quite like David Cronenberg. Rachel Weisz will be working with the "Cosmopolis" director and his two favorite leading men, Robert Pattinson and Viggo Mortensen, on "Map to the Stars," an extremist look at how there's no business like show business.
• We certainly have trouble telling Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader apart. Variety reports that the "Adventureland" buddies will play siblings in "The Skeleton Twins," the story of, well, twin siblings who manage to defy death on the same day and as a result take a long, hard look at their lives.
All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• John Cusack is a triple threat this week! In just the past few days he's scored roles in the legal drama "Due Process," the Stephen King adaptation "Cell" (Cusack's second King adventure, following "1408") and Roger Avary's "Duel"-type thriller, "Airspace."
• Hollywood loves it when a one-night stand leads to true love (and, often, a baby ... and not always in that order). Deadline reports that Amanda Seyfried and Patrick Dempsey will be playing unexpectedly expecting parents in "Wonderful Tonight," a romantic comedy that we hope gets a new title sooner rather than later (sorry, Mr. Clapton, but do you really need the extra money?).

With the likes of Anna Kendrick and Felicity Jones vying to be the love interest of Steve Rogers in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," it's given new meaning to "America's Got Talent."
Now a whole bevy of beauties want to be contestants on "Who Wants to Marry a 100-Year-Old?," with Deadline reporting that Jessica Brown Findlay ("Downton Abbey"), Teresa Palmer ("Warm Bodies"), Imogen Poots ("Knight Of Cups"), Alison Brie ("The Five Year Engagement‘s"), and nudity-prone "Game of Thrones" star Emelia Clarke are all in contention for the female lead.
Apparently Cap is going to have to use his shield to deflect hot ladies more than bullets, especially since the article also says that Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow will be doing some sexy avenging in the Marvel Studios sequel as well.
So who's up for the role of Steve Rogers' new sweetie?
At the end of the trailer for the indie crime thriller "Comes a Bright Day," one of the characters earnestly delivers the line, "You can't kill me, son. I'm dead already." And while that may sound like a cliched thing to say, for once it's actually 100% true.
Because the guy saying it is none other than Peter Pettigrew, a.k.a. "Harry Potter" nemesis Wormtail.
Bet you didn't see that one coming. Get More »
Imogen Poots is about to get a little dirty. A lot dirty, actually.
The "Fright Night" beauty is headed for the ugly underbelly of humanity as she joins the ragtag cast of "Filth," according to The Playlist.
"Filth" is based on the novel of the same name by Irvine Welsh, and the story certainly holds true to its brazen title. The man who brought us "Trainspotting" paints another portrait of lost souls and hopeless addicts with the story of Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy), a sex- and drug-addled Scottish police officer whose investigation of a murder keeps getting sidetracked by his own depraved shenanigans. Watching over him (sort of ) is his partner (sort of), Ray Lennox (Jamie Bell), and his boss, Bob Toal. Get More »
It-girl du jour Imogen Poots is clearly on the rise— the blond bombshell just landed the female lead opposite "Gossip Girl" heartthrob Penn Badgley in the soon-to-shoot "Greetings From Tim Buckley."
The drama, written by Emma Sheanshang, David Brendel and Dan Algrant (who will also direct), follows the true story of the days leading up to Jeff Buckley's famed 1991 performance at a tribute concert for his father, who had abandoned him.
Poots will play a young woman who meets Buckley (Badgley) while working at the concert, and, shockingly totally predictably catches his eye. The two take off on a four-day journey together that will change both of their lives, Deadline reports.
Sounds like good movie fare to us. Get More »
Horror flicks are hot these days, and perhaps none is sizzling more than "The Seventh Son," which tells the story of a young boy training to be an exorcist—who runs into a spot of trouble when he's tricked into releasing the most evil witch in the world.
So, which up-and-coming stars are we talking about exactly? Get More »
