    Abbie Cornish Talks Her Next Role In The Mexican-Set Indie Drama, 'The Girl' & Working With Madonna

    Aussie Actress Says 'W.E.' Filmmaker Madonna Is A "Natural" DirectorOK, actress Abbie Cornish went on far too long this weekend during the "Limitless" junket about being a vegetarian (booooring), but the Australian beauty is still tops in our book. Coming off an amazing (and sadly unrecognized turn) in Jane Campion's "Bright Star," Cornish's career has taken some interesting twists and turns. While it feels as if she's gone mainstream or at least is taking off, nabbing roles in Zack Snyder's tentpole ,"Sucker Punch," the high-concept "Limitless," and seemingly finding herself in the mix for several hot projects ("The Great Gatsby," "Prometheus" and many more), Cornish's journey seems to simply be an exploratory one; trying on whatever comes her way that sounds like a new challenge, indie, tentpole or otherwise.

    Watch Miley Cyrus Play Justin Bieber on SNL

    The Miley Cyrus Show, with Vanessa Bayer playing a babbling, "Pretty Cool"-spouting Miley, has been a highlight of Saturday Night Live's season. So when Cyrus hosted last night you might have expected dueling Mileys. Instead, she played that calculating kid - even his winks are planned - Justin Bieber.

    Exclusive: Teresa Palmer Talks 'Take Me Home Tonight' & Her Return To Drama In 'Say Nothing'

    Though it finally hit theaters this weekend, "Take Me Home Tonight" had a bumpy road there, sitting on the shelf for a few years due to the heavy drug content in the film. However, actor and executive producer Topher Grace fought for the film, mega-producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer from Imagine Entertainment came in and encouraged Grace to keep the cut he wanted and he got the final boost of approval from Ryan Kavanaugh, the CEO of Relativity Media who released the movie. But the wait hasn't hurt the film as it boasts an array of talent -- Grace, Anna Farris, Chris Pratt among the ensemble -- whose profile has only gone up in the intervening time. Also making big strides since the movie wrapped is Teresa Palmer who plays Tori, the object of affection that powers the film. We recently spoke with the actress and she revealed that for her first big Hollywood film, she was just trying to keep up with her co-stars.

    John Landis Brings Black Comedy "Burke and Hare" to Lincoln Center and Comments on His Legacy

    A few years ago I covered a special advance screening of "Hot Fuzz," which the Film Society of Lincoln Center previewed a week prior to its U.S. release. Director Edgar Wright and stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost were in attendance for a Q&A, which was moderated by Kevin Smith, and the event was beyond sold out (a long line of waiting-list hopefuls stood outside NYC's Walter Reade Theater with little luck on their side).

    Liam Neeson Says He's Not Been Asked To Return For 'The Dark Knight Rises'

    Rutger Hauer Also Says He's Not Likely To Reprise His RoleAll we know so far about "The Dark Knight Rises" is that Christian Bale will play Bruce Wayne, Tom Hardy will take on the villain role of Bane and Anne Hathaway will purr as Catwoman. But that hasn't stopped speculation from running wild and one of the longest rumors knocking around the film is that Talia al Ghul is one of the major female roles still to be cast. If true, we speculated it would likely mean she would team with Bane to seek revenge on Batman for killing her father, Ra's Al Ghul, from "Batman Begins." Badass Digest recently spilled that according to their sources, Talia will head up The League Of Shadows and Catwoman will fight alongside Batman. And while we'll have to wait to see if that's accurate, Liam Neeson has confirmed that he's not been asked to return for the sequel.
