Separated at birth? Long-lost twins? Vague coincidence? It's all possible when actors look so alike they could be siblings.
Is that Zachary Quinto, the Chief Science Officer of "Star Trek Into Darkness," running from the horror of "Aftershock"? Ah, no, at second glance, that's actually Quinto's doppelganger, Eli Roth, the man who gave us "Cabin Fever" and shot Hitler full o' holes in "Inglourious Basterds."
Anyway, with "Aftershock" and the new "Trek" being released back-to-back, we figured this was the perfect time to match up our favorite Hollywood doubles as they compete for roles, attention and DNA. It's like looking into a mirror! Get More »
It's a fact of life for an actor/writer/director after doing a movie: Just before the film debuts, you meet with the press and answer questions like, "What was it like to work with Matthew Modine?" and "Before playing a mime, did you meet with any mimes to prepare?" It's a part of the biz, so to speak, and the process is generally unremarkable.
Except when it isn't. Whether the interview becomes awkward, hilarious, charming or weird, it also always becomes magical, as we saw when the Internet exploded this week over Mila Kunis's playful flirtation with a quirky British chap. Get More »
With the MTV Video Music Awards hitting MTV tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET, we've compiled a list of the 50 best based on a number of factors: creativity of video, quality of actor's performance and, for some, random dancing ability. Our only caveats: no cameos and no soundtracks. The debate begins now. Get More »
Hosting the 17th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards is serious business. And hosts Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel are taking it seriously, as today, just hours before the Critics' Choice Movie Awards air live on VH1 tonight at 8 p.m., they've sat down with one of this year's most serious stars for an exclusive interview: The horse from "War Horse."
At Funny Or Die.

We've always said there was something "Magic"-al about this gal.
Emily Browning is proving that there will indeed be life after "Sucker Punch" as she's signed on to star in the indie thriller, "Magic, Magic," according to Variety.
Browning joins Michael Cera in the story about a girl vacationing with her friends in Chile who begins to "lose control of her mental faculties." It's unknown as to whether she'll be playing the girl or one of the friends.
Juno Temple, the "Atonement" actress who recently scored a role in "The Dark Knight Rises," has also signed on for the film, as has Catalina Sandino Moreno ("Maria, Full of Grace"). Get More »
Some came down with a critical case of Cera-itus after "Superbad" actor Michael Cera did one too many films in his impeccable oversensitive-twee-wuss persona, but in a cruel twist of fate, his redeeming film ("Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World") also turned out to be his biggest flop at the box office. With the haters nullified but his clout drastically shrinking, this essentially put Cera in neutral, like Switzerland with dick jokes. What's a landlocked European country to do?
The answer is a big-time one-eighty to show what you're made of, acting-chops-wise. Twenty-two-year-old Canadian Cera is about to do just that as he hops on board "Magic, Magic," an indie thriller from Sebastian Silva, director of Sundance award-winning foreign dramedy "The Maid." Get More »
Between YouTube, Upright Citizens Brigade, and half the cast of "Freaks And Geeks" creating world-famous superstars, there is a literal glut of talent coming through the comedy pipelines, which as metaphorical as they are could probably use some kind of filtration system.
That's where we come in. We're here to give you the skinny on the 20 most uproariously irreverent, maniacally twisted, ingeniously brilliant (male) comedic movie stars out there (see our picks for top 20 funniest women here). Get More »
Getting his start on "Arrested Development," Michael Cera is currently climbing a mountain every young actor faces as they develop into a legit star: diversity. Keeping audiences interested is all about shaking things up, staying fresh and according to The Playlist, that seems to be the motivation behind Cera's next move.
"Cedar Rapids" director Miguel Arteta (who directed Cera in the little seen, but critically acclaimed comedy "Youth in Revolt") let it slip that the master of awkward, mumbling comedy will team up with "The Maid" director Sebastian Silva for a new movie. Entirely in Spanish. Get More »
By now most movie fans recognize actor Mark Webber as the hipper-than-thou frontman of the band Sex-Bob-omb in "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World," but before that movie he had a long history of playing sons to some famous folk.
He was John Goodman's bi-sexual slacker son in "Storytelling," Woody Allen's rebellious rocker son Scumbag X in "Hollywood Ending," and a strange sort of surrogate son to Bill Murray in "Broken Flowers."
So it comes as no surprise that Webber, at one time a homeless teenager, would want to give his own 2-year-old the same big break he got. According to THR, Webber and his toddler will be co-starring together in a currently untitled micro-budget indie flick, which the thesp will also direct. Get More »
We usually don't put out news articles aimed at individual people, but today we had to make an exception. So if you happen to be reading this, Knives Chau, we just wanted you to know that the new indie band Mister Heavenly is about to go on tour -- and you really, really don't want to miss the performance by the bassist.
Actually, that's true of anyone else reading this as well, even if you aren't a fictional character from "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" like Knives Chau. That's because life has once again begun imitating art, as "Scott Pilgrim" lead Michael Cera, who frontlined that film's rock band The Sex Bob-ombs, has decided to pick up his four-string in real life as bass player for the new supergroup Mister Heavenly.
