All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• No one can make a "hard sell" movie (with A-list stars, anyway) quite like David Cronenberg. Rachel Weisz will be working with the "Cosmopolis" director and his two favorite leading men, Robert Pattinson and Viggo Mortensen, on "Map to the Stars," an extremist look at how there's no business like show business.
• We certainly have trouble telling Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader apart. Variety reports that the "Adventureland" buddies will play siblings in "The Skeleton Twins," the story of, well, twin siblings who manage to defy death on the same day and as a result take a long, hard look at their lives.
Be careful what you wish for — especially if there's two of you.
Viggo Mortensen and Viggo Mortensen star in "Everybody Has a Plan," a Spanish-language thriller directed by Ana Piterbarg that looks like a contemporary (and crime-ridden) twist of sorts on the age-old fable of "The Prince and the Pauper." Get More »
In "Casa de mi Padre" Will Ferrell plays a Mexican rancher in the middle of one seriously loco drug war. In order to commit fully to the role, the "Anchorman" star spent months brushing up on his language skills for the entirely Spanish-language comedy.
That's a lot of effort for a few laughs. But Ferrell is in good company with the following actors who took their performances to the next level by speaking in a foreign tongue, be it for a couple scenes or an entire film. Get More »
Who says Hollywood doesn't know sports? With Super Bowl XLVI just days away, many in the movie biz are showing their true colors in preparation for the big game. But the fandom elevates when two storied teams like the New York Giants and the New England Patriots face off.
Here, we take a look at 10 die-hard celebrity fans for each team. Based on this study alone, the Patriots fans may be better-looking; but if a fight were to break out at the bar this weekend, we'd want these Giants fans to have our back.
If you thought Uma Thurman killed it as The Bride in "Kill Bill," just wait till you get a load of MMA superstar Gina Carano in "Haywire" (out this Friday).
In the Steven Soderbergh ("Contagion")-directed spy thriller, Carano plays Mallory Kane, a freelance covert operative, who gets double-crossed by her employer and sets out to clear her name.
As a first-timer, Carano turns in a surprisingly stellar performance. What she hits out of the ballpark, though, are the film's many action sequences, where Carano -- who did all her own stunts -- gets to let loose and do what does best: fight.
In honor of Carano's ass-kicking in "Haywire," we've rounded up the top nine actors who perform their own stunts. Some might surprise you. Get More »
It’s an elite group that Rooney Mara is about to join. As Noomi Rapace did before her, Mara, playing "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," will take a spot in film lore as one of the very few female lead characters sporting major body art.
Usually, on-screen tattooing signifies toughness, edginess and a certain amount of invincibility, qualities that Mara’s character, computer hacker Lisbeth Sander, has in spades.
With the dragon tattoo itself being a key part of the murder mystery story, here's a look at some other top body artistry in movies -- mostly sported by heavily muscled and bare-chested bad guys. We think you’ll agree that some of the imagery is practically museum-worthy.
While the Academy Awards may have prestige, the Golden Globes are like the rowdy, beer-swilling younger brother that everyone wants to party with. They're the Roger Clinton of awards ceremonies.
Like all black sheep, though, the Globes occasionally embarrass their family with mistakes so heinous it almost makes us want to not pay bail when they get arrested. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced this year's nominees, and before returning host Ricky Gervais even opens his mouth we find ourselves utterly shocked by some surprising inclusions and omissions.

"At the top of the list I would say 'The Passion of Joan of Arc' that came out in 1928 by Carl Dreyer. That is one movie that I've seen a lot of times and it gets better every time I watch.
"I also have seen 'The Godfather' and 'The Godfather: Part II' a lot of times, but I also watch movies that aren't so serious. I've enjoyed watching 'Elf' and 'Happy Gilmore' repeatedly."
Sometimes a movie trailer is just a movie trailer -- and other times it's something truly special, like the new trailer for David Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method."
Anyone who has ever seen a David Cronenberg movie has probably at some point or another thought, "you know, this guy needs to have his head examined." Well, the director apparently agrees with you, because he's poured his soul into a brand new film about the relationship between Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung and he's invited the whole world to join him on the psychiatrist's couch.

Jason Momoa leaves us awestruck. First he plays the year's sexiest mounted warlord on HBO's cult favorite "Game of Thrones," and now he's taking the Sword of Crom from Arnold Schwarzenegger to play the new "Conan the Barbarian."
As an ancient hero, Momoa joins the pantheon of gorgeous actors playing heavily armored gods and warriors. Here are 22 of our favorite old-school weapon-wielding hotties.
