Javier Bardem and Penelope Cuz

Thanks to a scheduling conflict, one of Sunday’s most highly-anticipated moments will not happen as predicted.

Should win the award for Best Supporting Actress (that’s the way things seem to be trending right now), the statue will not handed to her by Javier Bardem. Although that job usually goes to the previous year’s Best Supporting Actor winner, Cruz’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona costar - and real-life boyfriend - won’t actually be in attendance.

According to E! Online, the actor will not be able to break away from a shoot in Barcelona. He is currently there filming Biutiful with director Alejandro González Iñárritu.

But it turns out Bardem’s presence would have been a moot point anyway. The producers are supposedly breaking with tradition and mixing up their lineup of presenters.

Box Office Breakdown: Dark Knight Struck Down by Tropic Thunder

Tropic Thunder

Despite a somewhat disappointing opening last Wednesday ($6.5 million), actually managed to surpass the four-time box office winner. The comedy grossed $25.8 million over the past three days, nearly $10 million more than its caped competitor.

And while Ben Stiller should be happy by his movie’s accomplishment, the Dreamworks/Paramount film still left a lot to be desired. Recent comedies such as Get Smart ($38.6 million) and Step Brothers ($30.9 million) debuted to better numbers. But then those two films didn’t have a distraction like Michael Phelps to contend with.

No Pablo for Javier Bardem

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Casting, Celeb News,

Javier BardemIt’s been a while since I’ve taken Spanish, so please correct me if I’m wrong. Does the name “Pablo Escobar” loosely translate to “kiss of death”?

Just when it looked like a movie about the Colombian drug lord would finally get off the ground, two different projects have experienced setbacks. Although he was originally attached to star in Joe Carnahan’s Killing Pablo, recently chose to back out of the project. (This would be the second film Bardem has changed his mind on this year; he was once scheduled to play the lead in .)

The Oscar-winning actor told Entertainment Weekly that his decision was based on a matter of timing. “Joe has great material and it’s going to be spectacular, be we just couldn’t find a time when we could both work.” Unfortunately, this casting hole has left producers scrambling for a new actor to play Escobar. Now It’s hoped that a deal with Edgar Ramirez (The Bourne Ultimatum) can be struck in time for filming this October.
