Behold, the power of Harvey Weinstein. While he's known for being a tough customer, the super producer -- like we've said time and time again -- is one of the best allies to have in your corner to promote your movie. And he's shown exactly why he's still the best in the game with "Silver Linings Playbook." After premiering the film at TIFF to enthusiastic reviews and winning the People's Choice Award in the process, many found it strange that he chose to platform the movie. Well, thirteen weeks and eight Oscar nominations later, he's laughing last as the movie makes its way toward $100 million domestic. And now comes the victory lap.

So, what could make a cast with Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams and Louis C.K. even better? How about some Jennifer Lawrence?

While the Academy would never let Zach Galifianakis host the Oscars as the alter-ego from his talk show "Between Two Ferns," we'd be for it. Both clueless and insulting, and usually pretty damn funny, he's nicely taken some of the stuffing out the awards season campaign. In case you missed it, yesterday he sat down with nominees Jennifer Lawrence, Christoph Waltz, Naomi Watts, Amy Adams and Anne Hathaway in a segment both amusing and strange, and now part two has dropped.

A few months ago, word surfaced that freshly minted Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper was hoping to reteam with his director on the upcoming "The Place Beyond The Pines" (our favorite film of last year's TIFF), Derek Cianfrance, on a project known as "Chef." In development for years, the script by "Eastern Promises" writer Steven Knight, follows a drug-addled chef who moves his restaurant from Paris to London in order to capture a three-star Michelin rating and once upon a time, it was set to team the unlikely combination of director David Fincher and Keanu Reeves.

As we learned from the whole Lance Armstrong/J.J. Abrams/Bradley Cooper affair, even direct quotes can be dodgy these days, but this one comes from Cooper himself -- spoken in French no less while doing promo in France -- so we presume no wires have been crossed. And it looks like the actor's teaming up with Derek Cianfrance could get some international flavor.

Okay, so maybe he's not doing that J.J. Abrams produced Lance Armstong movie, but here's something that's definitely on the plate for Bradley Cooper. A crime story that bends space and time. Say, what?

Perhaps it's fitting that a movie centering on a man who conned an entire sport and legion of fans and followers, would be this convoluted even before a script was written. But to recap, in brief: Bradley Cooper told the BBC he'd be interested in making a movie about Lance Armstrong. J.J. Abrams says he's already been emailing Cooper about a project that he's developing about the cyclist. And now?

Ask, and ye shall receive. Or something. In the wake of all that noise around Lance Armstrong's confession that he doped, Bradley Cooper told the BBC he'd be interested in playing the disgraced cyclist. "I remember Matt Damon was going to do his autobiography at one point years ago," he said. "I remember thinking, that would be a great character, I'd love to play that character. I would love to do something, I think he's pretty fascinating." Well, it just might happen.
