On February 19, 1979, I was in a plane crash with my father, his girlfriend Sandra, and the pilot of our chartered Cessna. Sandra was 30 years old. My dad was 43. I was 11. Just after sunrise, we slammed into a rugged 8,600-foot mountain engulfed in a blizzard. By the end of our nine-hour ordeal, I was the only survivor.

You can basically draw every neurotic, Jewish comic character on the big screen and small back to Woody Allen in some form or another. For decades, the comic legend has been bringing his brand of comedy to the big screen every year (except the times he dips into drama), and while these days he's mostly comfortable behind the camera, he does taking an acting role if and when the mood suits him. Of course, he's starring in his own "To Rome With Love" this summer, but when it comes to other director's works, he's a bit more choosy. This fall, he's star in John Turturro's "Fading Gigolo," but can he be convinced to take a role in other movie not of his own making?

First, recently renamed Arnold Schwarzenegger project “Breacher” (formerly “Ten”) – which will see the muscleman joined by writer-director David Ayer and co-stars Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Joe Manganiello and Dawn Olivieri – has found a way to inject some more estrogen into the project in the form of actress Malin Akerman (“Watchmen,” “Wanderlust”). Akerman is currently in negotiations to join this hard-boiled crime iteration of mystery writer Agatha Christie’s “Ten Little Indians,” with the film set to follow the tale of an elite DEA task force who rob an underground drug cartel while operating under the guise of a warranted raid. They think they’re in the clear, until they all start being bumped off one-by-one. Akerman will lend her acting chops to the DEA team in Ayer’s latest cop drama/thriller picture.

With the Kristen Stewart/Rupert Sanders scandal still brewing on the edges of the tabloids -- and sure to be kicked up again when Robert Pattinson makes his first public on Monday on "The Daily Show" (!?) since news of the affair broke -- it seems the actress is keen to stay out of the spotlight as much as possible for the time being. Not only has she apparently pulled out of the red carpet premiere in London next Thursday for "On The Road," she is going to be staying off an upcoming movie set as well.

In the 1990s, the already well regarded actor Tim Robbins, kick started a directorial career that was not only promising, but was met with the great acclaim. Starting with the 1992 political parody "Bob Roberts," three years later Robbins followed it with the excellent death row drama "Dead Man Walking" which earned four Oscar nominations including Best Director, and won his then wife Susan Sarandon Best Actress. Then four years later he returned with the uneven, but no less ambitious (and political) "Cradle Will Rock." And then? Virtual silence on the directing front. There was another political comedy in form the of the straight-to-video "Embedded" that died pretty quickly, and other than a TV pilot and a couple episodes of "Treme," there hasn't been much else. Until now.

When “Finding Nemo” is theatrically re-released next month, re-formatted for 3D and following a similar trajectory that made “The Lion King” a surprise smash last year, it will come packaged with it a very sizable incentive – a brand new “Toy Story” short film, entitled “Partysaurus Rex,” and centered around our favorite neurotic dinosaur Rex (played, from the beginning, by Wallace Shawn). Today Entertainment Weekly debuted photos from the short, as well as new plot details.
