What makes a Hollywood face "scary"?
The ways to get on the following list are indeed diverse. You could have made an entire career off of having a naturally horrifying face (reluctantly looking at you, Mr. Englund). You could have a nightmare-inducing mugshot floating on the internet forever (hi, Mr. Nolte). You could even have a relatively friendly face that still is kind of ... well ... noteworthy (Buscemi). One thing's for sure: Each and every person on this list is beautiful on the inside, and that's all that matters.
Having said that, let's talk about how scary their faces are. Look within.
There comes a time in every girl's life when she must decide which hard-bitten-yet-handsome gentleman from an upcoming cop drama she'd most like to take home to Mom and Dad. (Isn't there?) Now that the Jan. 11 release date of "Gangster Squad" is upon us, it's time to make the call: Is it Nick Nolte who will wait for you at the end of the
perp walk aisle? Josh Brolin whose detective skills will equip him for a very, ahem, intimate inspection? Ryan Gosling who will meet a noir-style, gritty end at the barrel of a gun? (Or at the bottom of a long drop, not that we've thought about it too much.)
All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• Never go home with the maid! Michelle Williams is the current frontrunner for the female lead in "Double Hour," a remake of the 2009 Italian film "La Doppia Ora," in which a hook-up between an ex-cop and a hotel maid at a speed-dating event turns deadly when they're ambushed by a gang of criminals. [The Wrap]
• A prison term requires meticulous preparation if one is to survive all the shivving, shanking and soap-dropping. Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart will be getting ready for the big house in "Get Hard," in which a convicted soft-handed investment banker recruits the services of the guy who washes his car to help him get through his upcoming maximum security prison sentence.

Well, where has this one been hiding?
Kristen Wiig and Hailee Steinfeld are set to explore a rather polarizing relationship as they've signed on for the indie drama, "Hateship, Friendship," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Guy Pearce and Nick Nolte are also attached to the film that's been flying under the radar and is set to start shooting in mere days. Get More »
After the terrible tragedy in Aurora, Colorado this summer that left 12 audiences members dead at a screening of "The Dark Knight Rises," the folks behind the upcoming film "Gangster Squad" were faced with a dilemma as one of the main sequences in the film revolved around gangsters opening fire inside a crowded theater. What could they do?
Well, now the brand new trailer for the revised version of "Gangster Squad" is here and it features a brilliant answer: A whole lot more Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone.
Ready to see Hollywood's resident tough guy Jason Statham kick even more ass? Good, cause ya know, there's just not enough of that these days.
The first trailer for Statham's latest violence romp, "Parker," has just dropped. In addition to presenting the gun-toting, fierce zinger-ringing Statham we all know and love so well, he's also pulling a bit of a "Robin Hood" act in the feature ... with himself as the beneficiary, of course.
Statham's Parker is an ethical thief who's got two rules: "don't steal from people who can't afford it" and "don't hurt people who don't deserve it." Get More »
Los Angeles has a problem with organized crime? Nothing that Ryan Gosling with a shotgun and a little Jay-Z on the soundtrack won't fix.
It was a little discouraging when Warner Bros. pulled "Gangster Squad" from its original October release date, but the fact that a trailer for the film has now been released gives us hope that the studio will find (and stick with) a slot for its period crime drama sometime this year after all.

Here's some inside intel for casual movie fans contemplating their Oscar predictions: By the time the Academy Awards roll around, we know who's going to win in pretty much every major category.
Sure, there can be surprises and the occasional too-close-to-call race, but after so many other award functions play out in the lead-up to Oscar night, from the Critics Choice to the Golden Globes to the all the guild gatherings, patterns emerge and some favorites appear unbeatable.
That's why if you're about to head to Vegas (Editor's note: NextMovie does not condone gambling, unless you're sharing …) and lay down some scratch on "The Artist" winning Best Picture, the rewards, at this point, won't be too tempting. Get More »

Oscar Predictions 2012: Who Will Win?
Yo, Adrian! They did it ... again. With "Warrior," director Gavin O'Connor based his story on the "Rocky" formula of a working-class fighter who rises up through the ranks to achieve greatness in the ring while overcoming domestic drama.
It's not surprising that filmmakers keep returning to the 1976 Best Picture Oscar winner for inspiration. Just last year, the biographical boxing drama "The Fighter," starring Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg as brothers with an arena's worth of family issues, took home two Oscars by also dusting off the "Rocky" blueprint.
