Seth Rogen has never minded having a bit of fun at the expense of Tom Cruise. You may recall that earlier this year, he recounted the time he peed on the actor's driveway. And now, he's ready to be his wife.

Awww, now that's one delightful duo. Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand aren't exactly two names you'd expect to see share top billing on any feature but the pair play mother and son in Anne Fletcher's upcoming road-trip comedy "The Guilt Trip."

In case we haven't made it pretty clear already, "Take This Waltz" is one of the best films of 2012 thus far. We've been blowing the trumpet pretty hard for the film, and that's because it's the kind of low-key, smart picture that needs to be championed, so excuse us if we're just going to make a bit more noise.

You want to know how far the branches of the Judd Apatow tree go? Just look at the cast of "The End Of The World." Not only does it feature pretty much the regular Apatow players including Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd, Jay Baruchel and Jason Segel, it also features friends and celebs like Michael Cera, Aziz Ansari, Emma Watson and Rihanna. In short, anybody even vaguely related to Apatow's circle will probably pop up as the movie continues rolling, and speaking of which, the first set pics have landed.

Did you know that Michael Haneke originally turned his back on Palme d'Or-winning "Amour" because he had seen an unnamed Canadian film that treads the same ground? At the time, we came up with two possibilities for the work being referenced: Denys Arcand's "The Barbarian Invasions" or Sarah Polley's "Away From Her," but with Cannes now over, we're convinced as ever that the film in question is Polley's directorial debut.

Judd Apatow has made no secret of it for some time: he and his family love Zac Efron. It's a move that semi-legitimized the young actor who seemingly has been trying to bust out of the teen hearthrob ghetto with only mixed results thus far (though "The Paperboy" is right around the corner and a few passion projects are simmering). Efron worked with Apatow's wife Leslie Mann on "17 Again," and apparently the whole gang hang out from time to time. So perhaps it was no major shock when Apatow troupe member and friend Seth Rogen was announced as Efron's co-star in an R-Rated comedy for Universal last year. Definitely an edgier move than Efron fans are used to at this point.

Seth Rogen has acted in, written and produced films, but by year's end he's hoping to add "director" to that list of accomplishments, lining up a co-helming gig with Evan Goldberg on the long-awaited feature-length adaptation of his and Jay Baruchel's viral short "Jay And Seth Vs. The Apocalypse." The film has evolved into a bit of an Apatow Mafia love-fest and it's pretty much expected now to feature a vast array of cameos, sticking with Baruchel's long-standing vision for the movie.

While the show only lasted a season (although ratings were enough that, were it on today, it would be a big hit), so much of what's proved successful in the comedy world in the last decade can be traced back to " Freaks & Geeks." Executive produced by Judd Apatow, who's been behind many of the most successful comedies in recent years, from "Anchorman" to the upcoming "The Five-Year Engagement," and created by Paul Feig, who reunited with Apatow for last year's smash hit "Bridesmaids," it followed a group of nerds and burnouts in a Michigan high school.
