Pretty soon, we're going to have to stop referring to Adam Driver as that guy from "Girls." While, yes, Lena Dunham's show has put him on the broader cultural radar, he's impressed folks like Clint Eastwood ("J. Edgar"), Steven Spielberg ("Lincoln") and the Coen Brothers ("Inside Llewyn Davis") enough to land roles in their films. Another director who has happily utilized is Noah Baumbach, giving the actor a nice supporting role in the filmmaker's utterly charming and completely buoyant "Frances Ha." And now, they're going to work together again.

“Lovelace” has played at both Sundance and Berlin already this year, and it didn’t take The Weinstein Company long to snap up the distribution rights to the Amanda Seyfried-starring film (but we’re still waiting for a release date). That’s a pretty good outcome for directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, and you can fairly confidently predict that it will easily outgross their previous feature, the James Franco starring “Howl,” when it eventually makes its way into theaters. But even before it does, the pair have lined up their next project, and it’s “The Girl Who Conned the Ivy League.”

Diversity is an actor's best friend, and for Amanda Seyfried, she's certainly been stretching her wings. Testing her pipes in the Oscar nominated "Les Miserables" and baring it all both literally and figuratively in the pornstar biopic "Lovelace," the actress is once again switching gears, this time tackling something a bit lighter, but no less edgy.

One of the most enticing, if unknown prospects at the Sundance Film Festival (and one we think could spark a distributor bidding war) is "Lovelace" from "Howl" directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. And while there has been a lot of pictures and print about the movie thus far, the first clip has arrived to give a small taste of what's to come.

From wide-eyed, love-stricken Cosette in "Les Miserables" to the uniquely talented porn star Linda Lovelace in "Lovelace," two very different sides to Amanda Seyfried will have been displayed within weeks of each other. But with the latter film gearing up for a Sundance Film Festival premiere, it looks like there have been some changes made on the way from the editing room to the screening room.

Mark Webber is not only a solid actor traversing both indie and mainstream worlds ("Broken Flowers," "The Hottest State," "Dear Wendy," "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World"), but he has also found his own voice and bloomed into a interesting writer/director in recent years. He released his debut "Explicit Ills" in 2009, and his sophomore directorial effort, "The End of Love" feels like another personal and intimate work. It also features a meta aspect at its core: he stars as an actor named Mark alongside his real-life, then-two-year-old son Issac

This is why you can’t pay too much attention to the buzz and get all wrapped up in Twitter noise that all of sudden made everyone go, “Oscar frontrunner!” Early screenings of “Les Miserables” did provoke audiences to burst into applause after certain song performances and yes, many were in tears by the end of the film. And that’s because Tom Hooper’s “Les Miserables” has two incredible sequences (both of which audiences thundered over in our early screening), but the rest of the movie? Well, maybe not so much.

We gotta ask...what's going with Éponine? As Universal continues going hard on the marketing campaign for "Les Miserables," Samantha Barks seems conspicuously absent from much of it. Secret weapon or stumbling block? Here's hoping for the former, but unfortunately, she isn't in this latest batch of promo images for the movie, snapped by the legendary Annie Leibovtiz for Vogue.

Thus far, the marketing for Universal's upcoming Oscar hopeful "Les Misérables" has been spot on. Promising epic grandeur, emotional and exquisite production values, all with a top flight cast, excitement has been running high. And then there's this....
