If you're over a certain age, chances are you love John Cusack. After all, in the '80s and '90s, the guy was pretty much solid gold. Since 2000's "High Fidelity," though, he's pretty much appeared in one pile of ass after another, so if you're under a certain age, you can be forgiven for wondering just what the big deal is with this guy.
Big studio projects and small indie films alike rounded out their casts this week as show business continues to be booming in Hollywood.
Reese Witherspoon returns to — surprise, surprise — romantic comedy territory as she signs on to headline "The Beard," according to The Hollywood Reporter. The "beard" of the title is a slang reference to a someone who goes out in public with a gay person to give the illusion that he or she is, well, not gay. Secrets, lies and shenanigans will no doubt ensue — and all of them cute, due to the fact that the movie stars Reese Witherspoon. Get More »
Malin Akerman is ready to go Atomic.
The "Watchmen" beauty is set to show off her singing voice once again as she signs on to play Blondie frontwoman Deborah Harry in "CGBG," according to Variety.
Blondie was founded in 1974 by Harry and guitarist Chris Stein and is considered a pioneer in the American New Wave and punk scenes that started explode in the mid-'70s. However, Blondie went on to become Top 40 hitmakers after the release of their album "Parallel Lines" (1978), which featured such hit singles as "Heart of Glass," "Hanging on the Telephone," "Sunday Girl" and "One Way or Another."

Have you ever been walking through the city, seen one of those street performers painted to look like a statue or a robot and thought to yourself, "I'd hit that?" Well, guess what.
The first trailer for the new indie "The Giant Mechanical Man" is here and chances are once you get a look at "The Office" star Jenna Fischer's efforts to find true love among the painted people, you'll never look at street performers quite the same way again. Get More »
Movies are a funny thing. Case in point: "Catch .44" features an all-star cast (Bruce Willis, Forest Whitaker and Malin Akerman among others) and a high octane plot about a bunch of criminals who double cross each other during a Mexican standoff.
It seems like just the kind of film that should be making a big splash at the box office -- except it's only being released in a couple cities before going straight to DVD.
Why? Well, that's the big question -- and since we now have our first look at the new trailer for "Catch .44," it's a question you can try to answer for yourself. Should this movie get a wider release? You make the call! Get More »
Guys like Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Robert Downey Jr. are awesome, but for our money, the most underrated superstar in Hollywood is John Cusack. For the past quarter century, all the guy has done is turn out one indelible performance after another, both in classics ("Say Anything") and in films that should have been complete crap but were actually pretty fun just because he was in it ("2012," anyone?).
But can even Cusack make math cool?
Well, we're about to find out, because according to Variety, Cusack has just signed on to star in the upcoming thriller "The Numbers Station" -- and with Cusack on board, we have a feeling the only number you'll need to know now is number one. Get More »
Tom Cruise: movie star… Scientologist… stage mom dad. Wait, what?
Word on the street is that while Tom has been hard at work transforming into the rock-'n'-roll god Stacee Jaxx for his upcoming film "Rock of Ages," the powers that be have locked down one final cast member for the lineup.
You guessed it: The latest A-lister to (reportedly) join the party is Tom's 5-year-old daughter Suri Cruise.
According to Broadway World, details of Suri's role have not been released, but if these rumors are true (we admit we're a little skeptical), the tot would make her acting debut alongside the likes of Malin Akerman, Russell Brand, Julianne Hough, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Alec Baldwin, Paul Giamatti, Mary J. Blige and, of course, her dad.
Of course, director Adam Shankman has already pretty much dispelled the rumor. Get More »
We know Malin Akerman can fight the forces of evil. But can she carry a tune?
We'll soon find out, as the "Watchmen" beauty has joined the cast of "Rock of Ages," the upcoming adaptation of the Broadway musical, according to Deadline.
Akerman will play Constance, the journalist who gets involved with the subject of her would-be expose, a rock star by the name of Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise). The two perform a duet of Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love Is" before ending up in the sack. Get More »
You know how every other week there's a story in the news about someone leaving something incredibly valuable in a cab, like a priceless Stradivarius or a diamond necklace on loan from an Arabian prince? Well, now imagine that the object you left in a random cab was your daughter, and by "left in a cab" we mean "stuffed in the trunk of a cab by a deranged kidnapper." Then what would you do?
Well, here's what Nicolas Cage would do: bring in Malin Akerman and Josh Lucas. Which, according to Hollywood Wiretap, is exactly what just happened, as the two have officially joined the cast of the new Cage cabnapping thriller "Medallion." Get More »
