While rightly celebrated for his films, Spike Jonze is also an ace actor, who excels and showing up in small roles and knocking them out of the park. His turn as a penny stock mover and shaker in Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street" was memorable stuff, as was his brief appearance in Bennett Miller's "Moneyball."

Emily Ratajkowski

While rightly celebrated for his films, Spike Jonze is also an ace actor, who excels and showing up in small roles and knocking them out of the park. His turn as a penny stock mover and shaker in Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street" was memorable stuff, as was his brief appearance in Bennett Miller's "Moneyball." And now he's bringing talents to Lena Dunham's fourth season of "Girls," where he'll show up as a character named Marcos. And as per usual, not much else is being shared about his role in the show. [The Wrap]

After bouncing around naked in Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" video, Hollywood came calling for model-now-actress Emily Ratajkowski. She nabbed a role in David Fincher's upcoming "Gone Girl," and now she's bagged a part opposite Zac Efron in "We Are Your Friends." Max Joseph will direct this one about "an aspiring 23-year-old DJ named Cole spends his days scheming with his childhood friends and his nights working on the one track that will set the world on fire. All of this changes when he meets a charismatic but damaged older DJ named James who takes him under his wing. Things get complicated, however, when Cole starts falling for James’ much younger girlfriend, Sophie. With Cole’s forbidden relationship intensifying and his friendships unraveling, he must choose between love, loyalty, and the future he knows he’s destined for." [Deadline]

Katie Holmes has snapped up the rights to the forthcoming book "All We Had" as a vehicle for herself. Annie Weatherwax's novel follows "a mother and daughter who have nothing in their lives except each other. The mother sacrifices all for her daughter’s well-being and the chance for her to get into a great East Coast College to have a better life than she did." Inspirational! [Deadline]
