Despite the reportedly rushed production -- and what the ramblings of way-too-invested nerds would have you have believe -- "X-Men: First Class" is still looking like the uh, classiest, of the crush of comic book movies set to hit in the next few months. We're not sure what it is -- the casting, the period setting -- but Matthew Vaughn's film is thankfully devoid of the dorky stink that surrounds its competitors.

When Jonah Hill came on the scene, popping up in David O. Russell's "I Heart Huckabees" and Judd Apatow's "The 40 Year Old Virgin," no one thought much of the young comic except that he was already stealing scenes from vets with a few more years of experience. But for anyone who has been paying attention to him behind the scenes, it's been pretty apparent his ambitions were big. He's taken to the pen, with films like "The Adventurer's Handbook" and the animated "Sausage Party" in the works, and he's even developing television programs, recently selling a project to Fox. So no surprise that the young talent has plotted a major next move.

Generally speaking, the more an actor's career goes on, the more beloved they become: witness Kirk Douglas at the Oscars this past weekend, or the continuing work of Betty White. Over time, an actor becomes so familiar to audiences that they start to feel almost like part of one's family. Even when someone falls by the wayside for a few years, affection can be maintained for them -- hence the popularity of 'where are they now?' type features. Of course, this doesn't work for everyone -- for instance, take the case of Katherine Heigl.

Zoe Saldana Wanted For Ensemble CastFrom the looks of it, Ron Howard's going to be tied up for the next few years on the massive, multi-part adaptation of Stephen King's "The Dark Tower," which will span three movies, and two TV series. This will obviously leave a significant deficit of films directed by people with the surname 'Howard.' Fortunately, someone's stepping in, and it's none other than Opie's daughter, actress Bryce Dallas Howard.
