She’s from New York City, the niece of one of the world’s most recognizable actresses, and has been on the big screen since she was ten years old. He’s from (the considerably less glamorous) Maesycwmmer, Wales, and made his feature film debut as recently as 2010. So, on the surface, Emma Roberts and Craig Roberts appear to have little more in common than merely sharing a surname...and before you ask, no, they’re definitely not related.

Considering she's the Nickelodeon-series leading scion of Hollywood royalty, the daughter of Eric Roberts and niece of Julia Roberts, Emma Roberts has been laudable in her desire to mix it up a bit. Of course, there were the early teen vehicles, like "Aquamarine," "Wild Child" and "Hotel For Dogs," but she's also mixed up her Hollywood fare like "Scream 4" with theoretically more interesting indie films, like "Lymelife," "It's Kind of a Funny Story" and "The Art of Getting By." We can't say we've been huge fans of any of them, but it at least shows a desire to be something other than America's next sweetheart.

Starring one of the most hotly touted young actresses of the moment, in the biggest stretch of her career to date, the film delves into the dark heart of Sweden, uncovering the truth behind a series of murders, and the rotten heart of one of the country's most prominent families. With reviews set to hit any day now (after that embargo controversy earlier in the week), we've now been given our most revealing glimpse yet at Emma Roberts in "The Girl With The Tramp Stamp Tattoo."

Certainly, if you had to hitch your wagon to two rising actresses, you could do far worse than Emma Roberts and AnnaSophia Robb. Both of them have seen their place in Hollywood slowly moving on the uptick. Roberts has been quietly amassing a good body of work, dabbing mostly in indies like "It's Kind of a Funny Story" and "The Art of Getting By" but also making a pit stop into a franchise with "Scream 4." Meanwhile Robb, was probably best known as Violet Beauregarde in Tim Burton's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" until earlier this year when she led the sleeper hit "Soul Surfer."

Rashida Jones' rise in the comedy world after debuting on "The Office" a few years ago is definitely commendable. The daughter of music legend Quincy Jones (we're sure she loves hearing that) is a regular on NBC's "Parks And Recreation," has already starred in "I Love You, Man" and will soon be seen in "My Idiot Brother," "The Big Year" and "The Muppets." Jones starred recently in Dana Adam Shapiro's Brooklyn-based relationship drama "Monogamy" and will soon make her writing debut with "Celeste And Jesse Forever" which will see her star along side Andy Samberg.

Jennifer Lawrence Is Not A Frontrunner For The RoleLess than 24 hours after Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin and Jennifer Lawrence emerged as contenders for the highly touted role of Katniss Everdeen in the gestating "Hunger Games," some more, pretty obvious names emerged. Talent that would be on any director or casting agent's wishlist for a role that needs a young female lead.

New decade, new rules, huh? Not exactly. Pop quiz: what would a "Scream" movie be without its movie in-jokes, exactly? Hmm, perhaps an original film? A Canadian trailer for the Weinstein Company's desperate franchise cash-in has arrived and get it while it's hot because the studio keeps taking down various trailers on YouTube only for them to spring up again five minutes later. They should probably realize the wildfire has spread and it's best to just release an official version already.
