"Starring Oscar nominee Jonah Hill" That's a bit of marketing play you better start getting used to because with Oscar recognition now under his belt, and having show off his range in both "Cyrus" and the awards season horse "Moneyball," there are going to be plenty more opportunities outside of comic roles for Jonah Hill and it looks like he's striking while the iron is hot.

If there's one potentially awful big screen remake of a classic (maybe the word classic should have been in ironic quotes) that we're looking forward to, it's "21 Jump Street." There's really no reason this thing should work - it's a comedic take on a dramatic series, which worked out so well for "Starsky & Hutch;" it co-stars the frequently wooden Channing Tatum; and it just reeks of a kind of desperate nostalgia. That said: we cannot wait. And now we have a new-ish trailer and poster to hold us over. Also, some new footage from "The Avengers" comes courtesy of a German trailer that seems awfully strident and authoritarian.

'The Help' & 'The Artist' Lead The Field At Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations

In the seventeen years that they've been running for, the annual Screen Actors' Guild Awards have proven to be a pretty reliable precursor for the acting categories at the Academy Awards. And why shouldn't they? With the actors who nominate their peers for the Oscars overwhelmingly being SAG members, there's always going to be a natural link, and certainly by the time the guild award their prizes, it's a good time to make a bet. In the last few years, they've only missed Penelope Cruz in "Vicky Cristina Barcelona," Marion Cotillard in "La Vie En Rose" and Alan Arkin in "Little Miss Sunshine" as winners, while the nominees tend to match up heavily -- last year, seventeen out of twenty in the acting categories were the same, while all five nominees in the Outstanding Cast category won Oscar nominations.

We have to admit, we're still excited whenever we get our hands on an issue of Entertainment Weekly and get a first peek at an upcoming movie, even if its something we aren't all that interested in seeing. Since the rise of the internet however, we are pretty glad to not suffer through pages about "The Last Survivor Bachelorette" or whatever mind-numbing reality show is getting a three page spread just to see Ben Stiller in some sweatpants. Shhh. You're welcome. Just take it.

Creator/Writer/Producer/Voice of Allen Gregory Shows Another Side of His Unique Brand of Humor On The Small Screen"Allen Gregory" is Jonah Hill's new animated series on Fox, about Allen Gregory de Longpre, a precocious, pretentious 7 year old navigating elementary school life for the first time. During a presentation of the pilot and subsequent Q&A at USC on Sunday, Hill, the cast and crew talked about the making of "Allen Gregory" and their creative process with this new venture. In addition to creating, writing and producing the series, Hill voices the miniature Allen Gregory, who talks like a combination of an Upper East Side grandma and Ari from "Entourage." He has two dads, the snarky/urbane Richard, voiced by French Stewart, and the hunky, warm, possibly straight Jeremy, voiced by Nat Faxon, the comedian who also wrote "The Descendants."

In contrast to the Best Actor & Actress race, which we've examined in the last few weeks, the supporting categories are looking much more open. A-list movie stars like Christian Bale, Matt Damon, Penelope Cruz and Cate Blanchett, who've all figured in recent years, are mostly absent from contention, and only a few performances have really planted a flag in the category, with some initially strong contenders already starting to slip away.

Breaking out as the foul-mouthed Seth in "Superbad," Jonah Hill has been slowly diversifying his CV. With films like "Cyrus" and this weekend's "Moneyball," Hill has been stretching his wings into dramatic territory, he's got "Allen Gregory," a new animated show he co-created premiering on Fox next month, but as long as he's been making the Hollywood rounds, he's been talking about directing, and he's now gotten his feet wet behind the camera.

Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel have teased and taunted fans of their feature adaptation of "Jay & Seth Vs. Apocalypse," the Internet sensation that hit all the way back in 2007, for far too long. But along with the recent announcement by Rogen that lensing will take place in early 2012, the actor has now revealed that two friends and regular collaborators in James Franco and Jonah Hill will be featuring in the film as themselves.

Star Also Turned Down A Role In Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Only God Forgives,' But Wants To Be In 'Logan's Run'Now that Terrence Malick has evolved into a workhorse, much to the pleasure of every cinemaniac, if there's another guy we'd like to see working more frequently, it would be Albert Brooks. He by no means has a small body of work, but for 40+ years in the business, there are surprisingly few credits to his name. Despite this, however, he has managed to craft several memorable movies and characters: his Oscar-nominated turn in James L. Brooks's "Broadcast News" was unquestionably affecting, he was a perfect ingredient in the moving Pixar flick "Finding Nemo," and as a director he never made anything less-than-enjoyable (in fact, "Real Life," "Modern Romance," and "Lost in America" are pretty incredible).
