He was once one of the biggest names in Hollywood thanks to his work with Steven Spielberg, but at 64 years of age it’s now more of a case of finding work wherever he can for Richard Dreyfuss. A couple of potentially interesting roles in “Poseidon” and “W.” in the last decade haven’t led to much since, and his last couple of notable roles have been a gag on his “Jaws” role in “Piranha 3D” and a small part in “Red” -- a film which practically put out an open casting call for anyone over 60 with a recognizable face. Still, we’re always happy to see Dreyfuss pop up in a film no matter what the role is, and we’re betting there’s still a shed-load of directors out there who’d count themselves lucky to be able to work with him.

Rising starlet Imogen Poots has joined the film adaptation of Nick Hornby's novel "A Long Way Down," which has Pascal Chaumeil at the helm. She'll star along side Toni Collette, Pierce Brosnan and Emile Hirsch, who previously joined the tale of four disparate individuals who meet one another on a London rooftop on New Year's Eve, all with the same intention to commit suicide. Instead of jumping, these complete strangers make a pact to stay alive and stay together until at least Valentine's Day. Lensing begins this September in London from a script by Jack Thorne, whose debut film "The Scouting Book For Boys" earned major praise.
