    Zach Galifianakis Reveals Alan Will Be In A Mental Hospital In 'The Hangover Part 3'

    With well over $300 million in box office receipts and counting, "The Hangover Part II" is a bonafide smash hit. Before the movie came out, there was already talk of a third entry in the comedy franchise and after audiences flocked to the movie opening weekend, it didn't take long for Warner Bros. to hire back Craig Mazin to get writing the script for a followup. And while the cast has busy calendars in the immediate future -- Bradley Cooper starts "The Place Beyond The Pines" this summer with "The Crow" and possibly "Paradise Lost" waiting in the wings; Ed Helms returns to "The Office" in the fall; Zach Galifianakis shoots "Southern Rivals" ...

    Bob Balaban Joins Wes Anderson's 'Moonrise Kingdom'

    "Moonrise Kingdom," Wes Anderson's first live-action film in five years, is now firmly underway: it's a month into filming, and only yesterday, images of stars Edward Norton and Bill Murray on set leaked out. And it's fair to say that we're as excited about this as any Anderson film in years: the script, from the director and Roman Coppola, is recognizably Anderson-esque, but also takes off in a new direction, and, while the cast includes a number of his usual rep company -- Murray, Jason Schwartzman, possibly Owen Wilson -- there's also an exciting selection of new actors joining them, including Norton, Bruce Willis, Frances McDormand, Tilda...

    This is not the worst idea for a televison channel I ever heard. Conan O'Brien takes a look at an entire television channel that recreates history as Sarah Palin might have mangled it. Why stop at at rewriting Paul Revere's ride?

    Eva Gabrielsson's Stieg Larsson Memoir Hits Vanity Fair
