On the last day of the Republican National Convention, it's possible that that sound you heard was that of heart palpitations over at Warner Bros' marketing department. After seemingly retiring from acting after "Gran Torino," Clint Eastwood used a gap in his schedule caused by the delay to his remake of "A Star Is Born" to return to the front of the camera, starring in the directorial debut of long-time collaborator Robert Lorenz. And given his immense star power, the fact that he's never won a Best Actor Oscar, and the bait-y subject matter (Eastwood plays a veteran baseball coach leading his sight), many thought the performance, if not the film, could be one to watch in the awards race this time around.

Even though little has been heard from the film, upcoming baseball drama "Trouble with the Curve" will mark Clint Eastwood's first on-screen role since 2008's "Gran Torino." It will also be the first time since 1993's "In the Line of Fire" that he isn't directing himself. But he's got a trusted friend and collaborator behind the camera in Robert Lorenz -- making his directorial debut here -- who has worked as an assistant director to Eastwood on "Mystic River" and "Million Dollar Baby" and is partner with Clint at his shingle Malpaso Productions.

In a film exploring a recently widowed man’s daily grief, one might think of a soundtrack filled with Leonard Cohen or Michael Giacchino strings to accompany the story. But recently at Cannes, director Bill Purple revealed that one of the biggest pop music superstars on the planet will supervise and score his latest project.

After playing Napster guru Sean Parker in David Fincher's "The Social Network," it looks like Justin Timberlake is getting ready to go back online, only this time the roll of the dice will be for something other than MP3s.

Last year was bittersweet for fans of the Coen Brothers. While it was the first time in four years the prolific duo didn't have a film released, it was announced that they'd be returning to the music world in 2012 for their next feature "Inside Llewyn Davis" which would focus on the '60's Greenwich Village scene that included names like Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Ramblin' Jack Elliott and Joni Mitchell among others.

Say what you like about Justin Timberlake, the man is serious about his acting. The former boy-bander started to gain grudging respect of film fans with small turns in films like "Alpha Dog" and "Black Snake Moan," before winning over many thanks to his supporting role in David Fincher's "The Social Network." Now, despite star vehicle "In Time" failing to convert at the box office, he's pretty firmly cemented as an actor, rather than a musician pursuing vanity projects; he was winning and funny in "Friends With Benefits" and "Bad Teacher," even if the films weren't, Warren Beatty considered him for the lead in his Howard Hughes film, and he's not released a record in nearly six years (although he guested on a couple back in 2010).

When Justin Timberlake played Elton John for David La Chapelle in his video for "This Train Don't Stop There Anymore," we figured it would be the first and last time he'd take on the role of the music icon. But it looks like that tongue-in-cheek performance has placed him right on the top of John's wish list for his upcoming biopic "Rocketman."

There was no pattern of box office success for 2011. One could point to the audience rejecting obvious pandering nerd bait like "Cowboys And Aliens," but then how does that explain "Transformers"? People can celebrate R-rated comedies, but what does that mean for "The Change-Up"? Few leading men and women appeared often in 2011, as it was a year dependent on concepts (mostly pre-established) as opposed to marquee names. And a lot of those new names are wise, lining up smaller projects in the coming year to diversify their portfolio rather than boost their paychecks.

Well, the cast for the Coen Brothers' forthcoming music world drama "Inside Llewyn Davis," has added another interesting name, with Variety reporting that stage actress Jeanine Serralles has joined the production. The actress previously had parts in James Gray's wildly underrated "Two Lovers" and Julie Taymor's jaw-dropping (in a bad way) "Across the Universe." She joins a cast that already includes Coen film regular John Goodman, Justin Timberlake, Oscar Isaac and Carey Mulligan, in the period film about the Greenwich Village folk music scene in the 1960s.
