    Much of the cast of Steven Spielberg's new epic "War Horse" will be unrecognizable to mainstream American audiences (save for Emily Watson and David Thewlis) -- and that is by design. The director didn't want the distraction of recognizable people in his lead parts, so he instead plugged in a lot of up-and-comers, especially unknowns who had never acted before. And as The Playlist learned at the Sunday night premiere of "War Horse" at New York's Lincoln Center, based on their upcoming projects, they won't remain unknown much longer.

    Michael Moore Proposes "Occupy Winter"

    Last night, Michael Moore posted a proposal to the General Assembly of Occupy Wall Street to keep the movement alive during the cold months of winter. Many in the media had long questioned whether the 99% agenda would be able to endure the cold, but now that most of the encampments in public spaces are no longer making headlines, winter weather isn't so much an issue as how to keep the message alive.

    Juno Temple has been on the verge of breaking out for quite a while. This year’s “Dirty Girl” should have been a big moment for her, but it didn’t get much of a release by the Weinstein Company.
