THR reports that Gandolfini's “Sopranos” co-star Vincent Curatola, who played Johnny Sack on the hit show, has now been announced as the latest addition to the impressively cast crime caper.

"The King's Speech" sits on the throne this morning, earning 12 Oscar nominations and looking like the film to beat at the 83rd Academy Awards, while "True Grit" follows with 10 nods and "The Social Network" with 8. Not much in the way of shockers this year, but some pleasant surprises in the mix as well as few snubs.

While the lion's share of the acclaim for Lisa Chodolenko's "The Kids Are All Right" went to the two leads, Annette Bening and Julianne Moore, the ensemble in general were terrific, with fine performances from Mia Wasikowska, Josh Hutcherson and Yaya DaCosta, and most notably, one of the best performances in years from Mark Ruffalo, who made his role with a shading, depth and likability that many actors might not have been able to pull off.

Awards season is firmly underway now, and the calendar of dinners, drinks and screenings held by studios to pimp their hopeful nominees is already filling up. But if you're not an Academy voter, what does this mean for you? Surely it's just a bunch of actors talking about lame things like motivation and craft, right? No talk of superhero movies of any kind, presumably...

Casey Affleck, Javier Bardem, Sam Rockwell, Mark Ruffalo All Circling, Pitt Could Also Star In 'The Gray Man' We're not going to lie, we're a little aroused right now. One of The Playlist's favorite films of recent years (and this writer's very favorite of the last decade), "The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford," saw Australian director Andrew Dominik come on leaps and bounds from his excellent debut "Chopper," and produce a lyrical, profound, beautifully-acted, eye-meltingly beautiful Western for the ages. Unfortunately, audiences stayed away from the nearly-three hour film in droves, and it's taken some time for Andrew Dominik to get another project going.

Actor Says He's Game If Marvel Will Have Him; If More 'Hulk' Films Are Made With Mark RuffaloWe recently had a chat with writer/director/actor/cool dude Tim Blake Nelson on the occasion of his latest, "Leaves of Grass," hitting DVD (full interview coming soon). One of the questions we were most curious to ask revolved around the ongoing Marvel universe, and if we'd see him there again after appearing in Louis Leterrier's "The Incredible Hulk" as scientist Samuel Sterns, last seen beginning a curious mutation into a character comic fans know as the Leader.
