    Addison Timlin In Talks For 'Odd Thomas'; Tim Robbins To Join Too?

    The trouble with the new transparency of the casting process -- the stories that break at every stage of the process, from wishlist, to shortlist, to meetings, to screen-tests, to offers, to negotiations, to signing on -- is that you can sometimes think that an actor's firmly on board on a project based on one of these stories. More often than not, offer-stories lead to an actor actually being in the film, so when we reported a few weeks back that Lily Collins, rising star of "The Blind Side," had been offered the female lead in "Odd Thomas," the adaptation of Dean Koontz's mystery series about a short-order cook who can communicate with the ...

    What Cinematic Siblings Do You Identify With?

    Will anyone watch "Your Highness" this weekend and think to themselves, "Danny McBride and James Franco really remind me of me and my brother?" Will anyone be identifying with the sibling relationships in "Soul Surfer" or the documentary "American: The Bill Hicks Story"? I have no idea, but I am surprised that many people I know don't have a favorite group of cinematic siblings they relate to. I have always responded particularly to representations of fraternal trios in movies, and I thought this was common. So given that this coming Sunday (April 10) is something called National Siblings Day (brothers, send me gifts), I thought I'd ask if I ...
