James Gandolfini may no longer be with us, but there are posthumous projects on the way that will give us a last look at his incredible acting chops.

The late actor best known for changing television as we know it as Tony Soprano will next be seen in "Enough Said," opposite "Seinfeld" legend Julia Louis-Dreyfus. "Enough Said" marked the last leading role for Gandolfini, who passed away from a heart attack last month at the age of 51. Louis-Dreyfus plays a divorced mom who starts a romance with Albert (Gandolfini), who turns out to be the ex-husband of her new best friend, Marianne (Catherine Keener). Fox Searchlight will release the rom-com on September 20th.

Gandolfini had also completed work on the crime drama "Animal Rescue," which stars Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace. "Animal Rescue," in which Gandolfini plays a bar owner, is due in theaters next year.

He was a producer on the green-lit series "Criminal Justice," which reunited him with "The Sopranos" network HBO. The late actor had completed work for the pilot episode as the character Jack Stone. HBO had originally passed on the series in February but reversed their decision in May with a seven-episode order. Get More »

Introducing the New Rap Battle Champion: Bane

We've heard of epic rap battles before, but there's one flow master you really don't want to challenge — because he will quite literally break your back if you do.

Yes folks, it's Bane, the scourge of "The Dark Knight Rises" and one of the most infamously mumblemouthed characters in film history. And given how indecipherable most of his dialogue was in that film, chances are you probably didn't realize that behind that mask resides a true hip-hop genius. Get More »

On Super Bowl Sunday a 34-minute power failure cast a pallor of darkness over the big game, and though many valid conspiracy theories exist (voodoo priests avenging Katrina, concerted effort to bombard viewers with ads, etc) only one man could be the cause of it all: BANE!

All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...

• Seth MacFarlane has scored quite the cowgirl! The "Ted" funnyman has rounded up the gorgeous (and quite funny herself) Charlize Theron to star in his new film, "A Million Ways to Die in the West," a self-described "Blazing Saddles"-type comedy about a sheepish farmer who chickens out of a gunfight and sees his girlfriend leave him. [Heat Vision]

Colin Farrell and Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain are going classical with "Miss Julie," director Liv Ullmann's take on August Strindberg's 19th-century stage play about the sexually-charged battle of wills between a wealthy socialite and one of her head servants, with the servant's fiancee popping up every now and then to make things even more interesting. Samantha Morton is also set to star. [The Hollywood Reporter] Get More »

• We wonder if "Les Miserables" star Eddie Redmayne had to sing for his new role. The handsome up-and-comer is officially joining Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis for "Jupiter Ascending," the top-secret sci-fi film from the Wachowski Siblings. [Heat Vision]

Samantha Barks just can't stop singing! Eddie Redmayne's "Les Miserables" co-star is in talks (or, rather, in songs) to go "Walking on Sunshine," a musical set to '80s pop ditties about a mother and daughter who fall in love with the same man while vacationing in Spain. '80s pop star Kylie Minogue has already been cast (we're assuming as the mom, which makes us feel old). [The Wrap] Get More »
