One minute he's greeting celebrities on the red carpet; the next he's introducing a first-time filmmaker in the Un Certain Regard sidebar.

    'Country Strong' Director Shana Feste Swims To A New Trend, Will Direct 'Mermaid'

    Here's how Hollywood works. If an idea is really good and works one time, it means it will be repeated endlessly in a never-ending hope to match that first glory. So, when Jeff Bridges and "Crazy Heart" stormed the award season in 2009, it was no surprise that a transparent attempt was made to do that again and thus "Country Strong" with Gwyneth Paltrow and "My Own Love Song" with Renée Zellweger were foisted upon a movie-going audience that had been there and done that. Shana Feste directed the former and while at point (far in the distance) it was viewed as potential awards bait, as the season actually got underway, it never got much more t...

    Cannes Update: Oscilloscope Buys We Need to Talk About Kevin, Swinton Gets Oscar Push

    One of my favorite Cannes' competition films, Lynne Ramsay's We Need to Talk About Kevin, was deemed too tricky to handle by the bigger specialty distributors, who worried about the cost of an Oscar campaign for Tilda Swinton--a prerequisite for Luc Roeg's Independent Film Company.

    Ed Westwick Will Play Tybalt In 'Romeo & Juliet' With Hailee Steinfeld & Holly Hunter

    Say what you will about "Gossip Girl" (okay, it's terrible) but the show has served as a career launching pad of sorts. Blake Lively is currently making most of her exposure on the show landing some decent movie gigs ("The Town," Oliver Stone's "Savages"); Taylor Momsen has fashioned some sort of music career no one would otherwise care about, while it's only a matter of time before Leighton Meester finds her groove into the big time and is on her way after scoring a hit earlier this year with "The Roommate." Which brings us pretty boy and master of Brown Steel (see above) Ed Westwick. He seems to be moving his way up in the world, nabbing a ...
