    The sleeper success of "Easy A" seems to have brought good fortune on the major players involved. It certainly launched the career of already rising star Emma Stone into the stratosphere, with Will Gluck quickly moving up the ladder with "Friends With Benefits" opening this past weekend, with a few more projects in the works including another team-up with Stone and an adaptation of "Sex On The Moon." Moreover, he also inked a two-year deal with Sony. Not bad. And if we're feeling generous, we'll even say that Penn Badgley's recent casting in "Greetings From Tim Buckley" where he'll play Jeff Buckley certainly wasn't hurt by his turn as the ha...

    Has anybody seen America Ferrera since "Ugly Betty" ended? Ever since the sitcom went off air in mid-2010, Ferrera has been seemingly off the radar in terms of projects we genuinely care about (though she did lend her voice to the beloved animated film "How To Train Your Dragon").

    Review: ‘Cowboys & Aliens’ Brings The Bad-Ass, But Falls Short On The Mash-Up

    It was only about 15 years ago that Jon Favreau first arrived on the scene as the hipster indie film festival darling of “Swingers” fame. After sharing the screen with Vince Vaughn in one more flick and being quickly relegated to sidekick roles, Favs decided it was time to step behind the camera. But it wasn’t until the actor/director fully came to terms with his closet geek that he came into his own in Hollywood. Five years ago, newly skinny and holding a canister of film (we guess it would be a disc of data these days, but that just doesn’t sound as romantic) he came to Comic-Con to show off “Iron Man.” Fans were eager, though understandabl...
