    Julianne Moore Gets Villainous Opposite Jeff Bridges In 'The Seventh Son'

    Alex Pettyfer Out Of Project Formerly Known As 'The Last Apprentice'Her co-star Annette Bening may have picked up the lion's share of the awards nominations, after the decision was made to push both actresses for lead, rather than supporting, but Julianne Moore really was excellent in "The Kids Are All Right," one of the very best performances in a career that isn't exactly starving for great turns. Not that Moore's resting on her laurels; she's averaged three films a year for the last decade, and she's got the Steve Carell/Ryan Gosling comedy "Crazy, Stupid, Love" on the way later this year, along with the Robert De Niro drama "Another Bulls...

    Is 'Precious' Filmmaker Lee Daniels Directing Sofia Vergara & Bradley Cooper In 'The Paperboy'?

    Alex Pettyfer Also Reportedly Offered RoleIf director Lee Daniels can't choose a directorial follow-up to his Sundance indie hit, "Precious," it's not for lack of trying. The filmmaker has myriad options including the Civil Right-era drama "Selma" (which might be shelved because no studio cares about civil rights films anymore) and "The Butler" starring Denzel Washington as Eugene Allen an African-American butler that served the White House for 34 years and 8 presidents.

    Rising Star Turns Down 'Mortal Instruments' With his starring role in "I Am Number Four" in a few weeks, "Beastly" next month, and Andrew Niccol's "Now" later in the year Alex Pettyfer is swiftly becoming to the sub-genre of movies-that-Amazon-recommends-when-you-order-a-copy-of-"Twilight" what Tyler Perry is to films about African-American families.
