While Kylie Minogue rose to worldwide fame thanks to the breakout album Fever, whose smash hit "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" finally brought the singer the kind of stateside notice Aussie and Europe audiences had already showered on the singer, what many don't know is that before Minogue strutted her stuff on stages around the world, she got her start as an actress. And for those down under, she is still just as well known for her role on the long running soap opera "Neighbours." Well, it seems Minogue is taking an earnest stride back into her first profession (and yes, she has taken roles here and there over the years, most notably in Baz Luhrmann's "Moulin Rouge").

Casting News Explosion Includes Rob Riggle As Villain In '21 Jump Street,' Tim Roth In 'Arbitrage' & Much MoreJay Baruchel is joining the cast of David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis." The rangy young actor will play a "financial whiz kid" in the film, who makes a fortuitous gamble over the course of the film's single-day narrative. Baruchel is joining a loaded cast, including Robert Pattinson, Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Mathieu Amalric and Sarah Gadon. Baruchel will next be seen in the Michael Dowse-directed "Goon," which he co-wrote with Evan Goldberg, before lending his voice to the second film in the "How To Train Your Dragon" series. Update: First tipped by C7nema and confirmed by reps for the film, Kevin Durand ("Lost," "X-Men Origins: Wolverine"), Emily Hampshire ("The Trotsky") and Patricia McKenzie have also joined the film playing Torval, Jane Melman and Kendra respectively.

One of our favorite pictures of the 2010 festival season was Abbas Kiarostami's "Certified Copy," a rich and deeply layered film that wasn't only unlike anything the filmmaker had done before, but a completely unique experience that explored the various facets and stages of a romantic relationship in both a welcoming and experimental way. The film follows a couple through the Tuscan countryside as they discuss love, life and art amidst a relationship that has/is crumbling, while the exact nature of their relationship is playfully never quite clear. We recently spoke with lead actress, legendary French actress Juliette Binoche about her work on the film and navigating the enigmatic tone of the movie.

We guess we'll find out for sure when the reviews start coming for the Sundance Film Festival closing entry "Son Of No One," but from the first trailer for the film it plays pretty much like every second rate cop drama -- "Pride & Glory," "Brooklyn's Finest," etc -- to come along in the last few years.
