    'Goblet Of Fire' & 'Thor' Composer Patrick Doyle Scoring Pixar's 'Brave'

    'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Star J.B. Smoove Bags A Role In Sacha Baron Cohen's 'The Dictator'

But perhaps the biggest breakout seems to be the actor who's behind one of the most seminal supporting characters on the show: J.B. Smoove, who's played Leon Black on the last cou...

    Hans Zimmer Says He's Listening To Verdi & Goldfrapp As He Prepares 'The Dark Knight Rises' Score

    Though it's been known for a while now and pretty much expected, back in May it was confirmed that Hans Zimmer would once again reteam with Christopher Nolan for his currently filming "The Dark Knight Rises." The interesting bit was that James Newton Howard -- who worked with Zimmer on "The Dark Knight" -- was not returning to the fold, but that Zimmer was striking out on his own as he did for "Inception." Of course details surrounding the film remain tight and even trying to get a composer to describe his score this early in the game usually leads to ambiguous descriptions -- Zimmer told MTV earlier this year that it will be "epic" and "icon...
