The visual effects department had to do a pretty bang-up job to make Joseph Gordon-Levitt look even remotely similar to a young
yippee ki-yaying mother-f---er Bruce Willis in Rian Johnson's time-hopping "Looper," but since Hollywood's baddest, baldest ass-kicker was blessed with three daughters and no sons in real life, there wasn't much of a choice. Sure, all that pain and suffering ultimately paid off, but there are some people who've got it way, way easier. Get More »
Novelists are awesome. A good book is like an old friend, and we tip our proverbial hat to anyone who can pluck a tale from thin air and entertain or, better yet, enlighten a total stranger. Put too many writers in one family, though, and the plot is bound to get thick with complications.
All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• James Franco continues to provide evidence that he lives in a world where there are more than 24 hours in a day. According to Deadline, the crazy busy thespian has added "The Grace That Keeps This World" to his insane schedule, a family drama co-starring Brit Marling and Glenn Close that follows a father and his sons as they prepare for the upcoming hunting season.
• Michelle Williams, whom we haven't seen on the big screen since "My Week With Marilyn," is in talks to star in "Suite Francaise" for English director Saul Dibb ("The Duchess"). Williams would be playing, according to Variety, "a spirited young woman in occupied France who falls for a German officer and must choose between love and her country." She'll probably find a way to choose both.
• The con is on with Ben Affleck! Deadline reports that the "Argo" man is in talks to star in "Focus," the tale of a grifter who falls in love with a female up-and-comer — a recipe for heartbreak when one's in the business of cheating and lying. Get More »
Girlfriends. Gal pals. Sidekicks. Whatever you call them, superheroes just wouldn't be able to rise to their full powers without a love interest — and usually a healthy dose of some smoldering on-screen sexuality.
So whether it's the famous upside down kiss between Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man and girlfriend Kirsten Dunst or Gwyneth Paltrow's slinky skirts and witty banter with Iron Man Robert Downey, Jr., the chemistry between a superhero and his civilian paramour is usually an integral part of the story.

Darren Aronofsky is going from one crazed ballerina in "Black Swan" to one (arguably) crazed boat-builder in his upcoming drama, "Noah."
And now that the writer/director has Russell Crowe locked down as the titular handyman, he's busy casting two other main roles: Noah's sons. Word has it that English heartthrob Douglas Booth is lined up to play Noah's younger boy, Shem, and Logan Lerman will take on the role of the older son, Ham.
There's still no definitive word on which actress might play Noah's wife (who may or may not support his somewhat radical survival plan), though there are rumblings of Aronofsky's "Requiem For a Dream" star Jennifer Connelly as a possibility, Deadline reports. She starred opposite Crowe in "A Beautiful Mind" back in 2001, so she's got some experience as his better half. Get More »
Any excuse to show large, bouncing breasts is a good one. If one needs proof of this theory, "Piranha 3DD" is coming this Friday to a theater near you.
Not that we're dismissing the premise of this more fully developed sequel to its 2010 predecessor, the flatly named "Piranha 3D." It's completely plausible that killer fish could infiltrate a water park and that David Hasselhoff could star in a classy movie. It's just that both scenarios are highly unlikely.
The more tenable conclusion is that this horror-comedy is merely an excuse to show stacked chicks in bikinis running towards your face in 3-D. We sure hope it is, because it gives us the perfect opportunity to do something similar. So, without further ado, onward to our shameless pictorial of breasts with some sentences beneath them that no one will ever read.
Saoirse Ronan and Jennifer Connelly have hopped aboard the cast of Darren Aronofsky's upcoming biblical epic "Noah," Paramount confirmed yesterday per indieWire.
Looks like they're going to need a bigger boat.
"Noah," of course, is Aronofsky's long-delayed, long-rumored take on the familiar tale of the biblical figure who built a giant ship to escape the watery destruction of the world at the hands of an angry deity. And as we reported earlier in the week, Russell Crowe is on board as the titular character.
That makes "Noah" a reunion of sorts between Crowe and Connelly, who previously starred together in 2001's "A Beautiful Mind," a collaboration that earned Connelly an Oscar for Best Actress and Crowe his third Oscar nomination for Best Actor. Get More »
If eyes are the windows to the soul, then eyebrows are the hairy curtain rods. And with each passing decade, the fickle tastes of the moviegoing masses swing wildly from one grooming extreme to another, whether it's a liking for light plucking or an all-out paint job.
Fortunately, for us lovers of the bushier brow, au naturel is back in vogue with Lily Collins, star of "Mirror Mirror" (March 30), raising eyebrows everywhere. Here's our top 9 list of impressive brow-beaters.
Hollywood spends a lot of time showing off all sorts of supposedly sexy professions, with films about adventurers, soldiers, mercenaries, stuntmen, space rangers, elves, thieves, mobsters and fashonistas regularly competing at the box office.
But according to The Hollywood Reporter, Greg Kinnear is about to star in a new film about the coolest, sexiest and most virile people around: "Writers."
No, we're not biased. Why do you ask? Get More »
