    The purpose of the annual Golden Globes lunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel is for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to use their clout with would-be Globes nominees to mount a starry red carpet event, and invite press and other friends of the organization, so that they will broadcast the HFPA's ...

    'Monsters' Star Scoot McNairy Latest On Board Ben Affleck's 'Argo'

    Scoot McNairy is having a pretty good twelve months. The actor had a minor indie hit a few years back with "In Search Of A Midnight Kiss," but it was his turn in last year's lo-fi genre smash "Monsters" that really started to turn heads. The film was a big hit on the festival circuit last year, and ...

    Mark Ruffalo & Amanda Seyfried Join Increasingly-Awesome 'Now You See Me'

    It looks like magicians are coming back into fashion again. Back in 2007 Christopher Nolan and Neil Burger ("Limitless") had competing magician films in "The Prestige" and "The Illusionist" (though for our money Nolan's film is far and away the victor there) and more recently Darren Aronofsky signed on to direct the pilot for HBO's "Hobgoblin," about a group of magicians and con men fighting Hitler in WWII. Back in February we broke the news that there would be another film joining the ranks, this one a heist-thriller from "The Transporter" director Louis Leterrier. The film follows a crack FBI squad in a game of cat-and-mouse against a super...

    Kenneth Branagh To Direct Adaptation Of 'The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society'

    Yeah, They're Gonna Have To Change That TitleWith Kenneth Branagh delivering a hammer-sized hit with "Thor" this spring, it appears he's proved whatever he needed to with the comic franchise, turning down the chance to work on "Thor 2." He's spent the last little while attaching himself to a variety...

    Nick Nolte Joins Jason Statham's 'Parker'

    ...and then there's Nick Nolte, the two-time Academy Award nominee who seemed to be in every movie in the '90s and then hit a weird patch in the aughts where he was less in demand (even though 2002's "The Good Thief" features one of his finest performances), but seems to be be back to his ever-busy ways. While we'll ignore the fact that he was in "Arthur" and "The Zookeeper" this year, he's got the hotly buzzed "Warrior" and the highly anticipated Michael Mann/HBO series "Luck" on the horizon and he recently came aboard the Robert Redford/Shia LaBeouf vehicle "The Company You Keep." And while we may not approve too highly of his next move, hi...

But even with that said, we never could have guessed he would take on something lik...
