Poor Natalie Portman. Doesn't anyone want to cowboy it up with her in "Jane Got a Gun"? Producers are hoping Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire or Jeff Bridges might, now that both Jude Law and Michael Fassbender have walked out on her.
Even the picture's director, Lynne Ramsay, has ditched. Okay, for serious, it probably has zilch-nil-squat to do with the fact that Natalie Portman stars, but something's gone seriously awry to make yet another vital piece of the production take off. Get More »
Actors are trained to be able to portray just about anything their role calls for, but there's one thing even the best actors can't possibly fake: Singing.
That's why we're always so impressed when actors sing on screen rather than just lip-synch some professional musician. Case in point: Next week's "Pitch Perfect," which features stars such as Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson belting out tunes like the divas they were meant to be. Get More »
Sacha Baron Cohen brings his trademark ridicu-shock humor to his new film "The Dictator," but it may be his beard that steals the show.
He plays Admiral General Aladeen, deposed dictator of the (fictional) Republic of Wadiya, who flees to the U.S. when his country converts to democracy. As a dictator, he's used to ruling with an iron fist, an incorrigible sense of righteous cruelty, and a thick, bushy beard that could house several terrified baby sparrows.
Aladeen may feel like a fish out of water in New York City, but he'd feel right at home among Hollywood's most magnificent beards of all time. Here's our ode to the greatest facial hair in movies, in 15 parts.
In the 14 years since "The Big Lebowski' premiered, the film has gone form a minor hit to a cult classic to almost a form of religion among its legion of devotees. It's not just a movie; for many people it's a way of life. And that way of life just took it's next logical evolutionary step, as The New York Daily News is reporting that Jeff Bridges is set to write a new philosophy tome inspired by "The Big Leboswki."

Once you've graced the pages of every single Sports Illustrated Swimsuit magazine from 2002 to 2008 (including the cover) and become one of the most recognizable Victoria's Secret Angels in the world, what's a girl to do next?
If you're Marisa Miller, you bring your stunning good looks to the silver screen, of course—which is why it's no surprise that the beauty has signed on for Robert Schwentke's "R.I.P.D."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, she joins an A-list cast headlined by Sandra Bullock's boyfriend Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges that also includes Kevin Bacon, Mary-Louise Parker and Stephanie Szostak. "Glee" regular Mike O'Malley has also recently joined the cast, according to Deadline. Get More »
"Okay sir, you're a Lebowski, I'm a Lebowski, that's terrific, I'm very busy so what can I do for you?"
Everyone was a Little Lebowski Urban Achiever last night at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom as thousands of abiders gathered to witness the "Big Lebowski" cast reunion as part of 2011 Lebowskifest. The surreal atmosphere was perpetuated by people dolled up as just about every character in the movie including at least a dozen "Walters" (some with Folgers Coffee urns) and countless folk dressed as His Dudeness, many sitting next to each other.
Perennial Lebowskifest attendee Jeff Dowd, a.k.a. "The Actual Real Dude" that Bridges and the Coens based the character on, was present for a pre-show Q&A/costume contest, and even James G. Hoosier who played "Liam O'Brien, Quintana's Bowling Partner" showed up to enjoy the event from the audience. Get More »
Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski (Jeff Bridges) truly was a man of his time when Joel and Ethan Coens' "The Big Lebowski" opened in theaters in 1998. But in the 13 years since, thanks to a devoted cult following, the Dude has become a timeless slacker icon.
For some, "The Big Lebowski" has become a philosophy or even a way of life, with endlessly quotable lines like, "I'm the Dude. So that's what you call me. You know, that or His Dudeness or Duder or El Duderino, if you're not into the whole brevity thing."
The Dude, "pacifist" unemployed stoner that he is, passes his time in a Los Angeles bowling alley with pals Walter (John Goodman) and Donny (Steve Buscemi) until a case of mistaken identity gets him tangled up in the supposed kidnapping of Bunny Lebowski (Tara Reid), trophy wife of millionaire Jeffrey "Big" Lebowski (David Huddleston).

When you need a female lead for "R.I.P.D.," who you gonna call?
French actress Stephanie Szostak, apparently, as the "Dinner For Schmucks" star has joined the cast of the supernatural comedy, according to Variety.
"R.I.P.D." tells the otherworldly story of a cop killed in the line of duty (Ryan Reynolds) who is recruited by a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department. Get More »
Acting legend Jeff Bridges has been taking a lot as of late.
He took an Oscar, Golden Globe and SAG trophy for Best Actor in "Crazy Heart," took a recording contract from Blue Note Records and took lots of our money with two simultaneous blockbusters, "TRON: Legacy" and "True Grit."
Sure, we like to think of him as Dreamy Prince Caspian, but it looks like Ben Barnes will be taking up the mantle of Thomas Ward in "The Seventh Son."
If the "Narnia" star signs on the dotted line, this could be yet another major movie franchise feather in his cap.
Based on the first book in the "Last Apprentice" series by Joseph Delaney, "The Seventh Son" is the latest young adult novel adaptation in development that's full of magic-y goodness. As the young apprentice to The Spook, Ward must learn to harness his supernatural powers to protect the land from baddies of all sorts. Will he succeed where 29 other apprentices fail? Since there are eight books in the series, the magic eight ball points to "probably so." Get More »
