I think we all already knew that Nick Fury (as played by Samuel L. Jackson) would make an appearance in the upcoming Captain America movie. I suppose the below video captured by a fan during the film's shoot in New York City confirms that. Their conversation can't be heard however, though we can probably assume that this will be an end-credit sequence, similar to what we saw in Iron Man, in which Fury invites Tony Stark, aka Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), to join the Avengers. It's probably the same deal here, don't you think?

The short story goes... Jennifer Hudson has been in London, promoting her 2nd album I Remember Me; and while there, she stopped by the Graham Norton Show to chat with the host about her winning the BAFTA (the British equivalent of the Oscars) in 2007, for her role in 2006's Dreamgirls, but never receiving the award; it apparently got lost in the mail, if you can believe that. And, as expected, they found it and are now returning it to her.

This will probably be as close as most of you will ever get to seeing Sanaa Lathan in Pulitzer Prize-winning Lynn Nottage’s new play By the Way, Meet Vera Stark. No, I'm not rubbing it in, just stating the obvious.
