...and then there's Nick Nolte, the two-time Academy Award nominee who seemed to be in every movie in the '90s and then hit a weird patch in the aughts where he was less in demand (even though 2002's "The Good Thief" features one of his finest performances), but seems to be be back to his ever-busy ways. While we'll ignore the fact that he was in "Arthur" and "The Zookeeper" this year, he's got the hotly buzzed "Warrior" and the highly anticipated Michael Mann/HBO series "Luck" on the horizon and he recently came aboard the Robert Redford/Shia LaBeouf vehicle "The Company You Keep." And while we may not approve too highly of his next move, his grizzled technique is only sure to elevate the proceedings.

"The Conspirator" may have been a little dull, despite an excellent cast, but as Robert Redford was the man behind the sublime "Quiz Show," we're always going to pay attention when the star goes behind the camera, and his latest project, "The Company You Keep," sounds particularly interesting: an adaptation of a well regarded novel by Neil Gordon, with a script by "The Limey" writer Lem Dobbs, the film will see Redford play an ex-Weather Underground militant who's exposed by a young journalist (Shia LaBoeuf), and forced to go on the run. And now, Redford's looks to have landed one of his contemporaries for a role in the project, one who'll likely bring a little crazy on board.

Review: A Fat Man, Animals That Sound Like Sitcom Characters & The Terrible 'Zookeeper'

Early on in “Zookeeper,” Sony’s latest commercially craven piece of garbage from Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison production company, an animal sees two bears fighting. Her response is, “They look like two bean bag chairs!” Ignoring the idea that this character, a giraffe, has probably never even seen a bean bag chair, this is a brilliant line -- mostly because it reveals the true instincts of the six (six!) writers tasked with bringing this story-less hook to the screen.

It appears that one of the most enigmatic figures in Hollywood right now is...Robert Redford? Yep, kind of. The legendary actor/director was said to be attached to Brian Helgeland's Jackie Robinson biopic earlier this spring in the role of Branch Rickey, the Brooklyn Dodgers executive who helped the ball player break the color barrier. But the film was picked up by Legendary Pictures earlier today and their press release made no mention or Redford or Rickey at all, with Deadline intimating that that the thesp was not involved. Anyway, 24 Frames is sticking to their story -- sort of -- and even more, they're tossing out another possible Redford project.
