    Peter Farrelly Says 'Dumb & Dumber 2' Will Shoot In September; 'Movie 43' Pushed To January 25, 2013

    In the works for a while now, and most recently kicking back to life last summer when it was reported that Jim Carrey was eyeballing a sequel to "Dumb & Dumber" as a potential next project, it looks like everything is coalescing for the return of Harry and Lloyd.

    5 Actors That Are Overdue For An Oscar Nomination

    Among the five Best Actor nominees at this Sunday's Academy Awards, there's one person who should have been sitting in the Kodak Theater long ago: at long last, Gary Oldman, one of the actors whose lack of awards recognition has long been lamented by the chattering film classes, gets to book a tuxed...

    Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels & The Farrelly Brothers Will Be 'Dumb And Dumber' Once Again

    During press for "Mr. Popper's Penguins," Jim Carrey hinted that he would be open to sequels of some of his earlier films. It looks like that wasn't just idle speculation. The mega-star, who quietly led "Mr. Popper's Penguins" to over $185 million worldwide, is returning to the well for arguably his most beloved role, Lloyd Christmas, with a sequel to "Dumb and Dumber." The Farrelly Brothers will be returning to direct, and Jeff Daniels is apparently being sought to return as well. Daniels, mind you, is 56, and Carrey is 49. So apparently it will be a tragedy about two sadly aging mentally retarded friends, because it's increasingly apparent ...

    'The Social Network' Secret Weapon Josh Pence Joins Aaron Sorkin's 'More As This Story Develops'

    Broadway Stars John Gallagher Jr and Thomas Sadoski Also On Board For HBO PilotOn the special features of the DVD for "The Social Network," actor Josh Pence admits that he was devastated when he discovered that he'd been cast in a major role in a new David Fincher film, but that his face and voice would never be heard on screen. Pence provided the body of Tyler Winklevoss, but co-star Armie Hammer's face was digitally inserted on the body, to maintain the illusion of identical twin-dom. But the graciousness of Hammer and Fincher on the publicity circuit ensured that Pence's name got out there, and he hasn't done too badly off it, landing supp...

    Sam Waterston Heads Back To TV For Aaron Sorkin's HBO Pilot

    They say there's no such thing as a job for life these days, but the cast of NBC's long-running procedural "Law & Order" must have thought they had the closest thing to one until the show was canceled last year, on the verge of its 20th season. But rather than slipping quietly away into retirement, ...

    Emily Mortimer Beats Out Marisa Tomei For Lead In Aaron Sorkin's HBO Pilot

    We bloody love Emily Mortimer. The British star has proved herself over the last decade or so to be an incredibly versatile actress, capable of terrific dramatic work, in projects like "Lars and the Real Girl" or "Lovely & Amazing" (the latter really should have brought her more awards attention) an...

    'Superbad' & 'Paul' Director Greg Mottola To Helm Aaron Sorkin's New HBO Pilot

    We love movies, and (good) television, and stories in general. That's why we do what we do. And sometimes, we get up to see the slate of developing stories, and it depresses the fuck out of us. It can be hard to keep up your enthusiasm when movie versions of "Candyland" and reboots of "Ms. Marple" a...
