Cinecast: Clips from Jarmusch’s Latest, Bradley Cooper in Curlers

Bradley Cooper+ While most actors probably would have donned a wig in his place, Bradley Cooper is dedicated to his craft. Here are some photos to prove that the curls he sports in David O. Russell's upcoming frilm American Hustle are the real deal!

+ Just as you were thinking that Tom Hiddleston was all brooded-out after playing Loki for three films, the folks behind Jim Jarmusch's upcoming Only Lovers Left Alive put out two clips of the vampire flick that prove you wrong.

+ Mad Men star is moving on up to the big screen, getting behind the camera to direct Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Turturro, Richard Jenkins, and Christina Hendricks in God's Pocket, which he adapted from Pete Dexter's novel of the same name.

+ With Fast and Furious 6 and the return of his Pitch Black character in Riddick, this year is unofficially the year of Vin Diesel and his sequels. While you're still holding out hope that xXx: The Return of Xander Cage will be finally greenlit, you can check out the trailer for Riddick here.

Cate Blanchett for New Woody Allen Movie?

Cate BlanchettWoody Allen wants Cate Blanchett and Bradley Cooper for his latest movie.

The legendary director - who is notoriously reluctant to release details of his films ahead of production - is said to be eyeing Danish capital Copenhagen as the setting for his new movie which will feature Cate as the star and Bradley as part of an ensemble cast.

Although he has focused on his directing work in recent years - winning the Best Original Screenplay Oscar this year for his work on Midnight in Paris - it was recently revealed Woody will play an aging escort in Fading Gigolo, an indie comedy written and directed by John Turturro. John will also star as a gigolo in the movie, which tells the story of two "cash-strapped best friends" who go into the escort business and find their local Hasidic Jewish community suspecting them of unusual goings-on, Variety reports.

Sofia Vergara and Sharon Stone are set to play two of the women who pick up the ageing men. It will be the first time Woody has acted in a film since Picking Up The Pieces 12 years ago.
