Jennifer Lawrence is reteaming with her Silver Linings Playbook director for The Ends of the Earth. The drama is “a fact-based love story about a powerful oil tycoon who has everything stripped from him after he is caught in an affair.” 

Total Film nabbed a still of Jordana Brewster (D.E.B.S.) in the upcoming Fast & Furious 6, and it looks like she’s acting her ass off!

Comedic genius Catherine O’Hara might be taking her talents to the small screen. O’Hara is in talks to star in the Fox comedy My Future Assistant, based on Lydia Whitlock’s blog and soon-to-be book To My Assistant.

Olivia Wilde plays Steve Carell’s magician’s assistant in the comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone due out in theaters March 15.

Holy cannoli, Kristen Wiig is joining Arrested Development! Wiig will be playing a younger version of Lucille Bluth (played by Jessica Walters.)
