Not many actresses would be able to recover from doing "that scene" in Vincent Gallo's "The Brown Bunny," but then again, Chloë Sevigny has hardly played by anyone's rules. She broke out in the controversial "Kids" and from there has amassed an impressive CV working with directors like Lars von Trier ("Dogville," "Manderlay"), David Fincher ("Zodiac"), Woody Allen ("Melinda & Melinda"), Whit Stillman ("The Last Days Of Disco"), Jim Jarmusch ("Broken Flowers") and Harmony Korine ("Gummo," "Julien Donkey-Boy"). And oh yeah, there was that Oscar nomination for "Boys Don't Cry" as well. She's also come on the radar of mainstream America with her role in the HBO series "Big Love." However, her next role might be her most memorable one to date.

AMC, home to such acclaimed programs as "Mad Men," "Breaking Bad," "The Killing"....and a Kevin Smith-produced show about comic nerds? That appears to be case.

Like oversized glasses with no lenses or ironic moustaches, celebs seem to be flocking to daytime soaps as some sort of winky performance piece. Of course, you already know about James Franco and his turn as an evil version of himself on "General Hospital," and back in 2010 Julianne Moore reprised her role as Frannie Hughes on "As the World Turns" as that show came to a close. Now another actor is returning to his roots to say goodbye to an old friend.

No, This Isn't The 'Garden State 2' SoundtrackIf you don't recall "The Art of Getting By," you might remember it by its former title, "Homework," or by the indie-paint-by-numbers trailer that landed a little while ago. At any rate, looking like a borderline cliché of a Sundance film, the soundtrack details have arrived and it looks like if you're between the ages of 24-35, this movie is for you.

Some parents want bigger and better for their children. In the case of Melanie Griffith, she would be happy if her offspring followed in her footsteps. Literally.

Here's a spoiler if you haven't seen Werner Herzog's latest documentary, the 3D-made (no really), "Cave Of Forgotten Dreams" which centers on ancient cave art -- the oldest paintings known to man in the world (shot in three-deee!). So yeah, if you haven't seen it (and if this headline hasn't ruined it already), stay away.
