While we, or at least this writer, had a number of problems with "The Descendants," the actors were not one of them. From leads George Clooney and Shailene Woodley to brief supporting roles from the likes of Judy Greer, Robert Forster and Rob Huebel, everyone pretty much brought their A-game, and no performance in the film was more surprising than that of Matthew Lilllard. The actor, who broke out in "Scream" before going on to play Shaggy in the two "Scooby Doo" movies, had been absent from the big screen for nearly five years, but gave a terrific little performance in a key role, one very different from the kind of part he'd played in the past.

Talk about worlds colliding. It seems the unvierses of the Kardashian family and Eastwood clan are now going to be sharing the same orbit, or at least, the same television network.

This week has finally seen some of the awards season's last big question marks unspool, with early (although vaguely unofficial) screenings of "War Horse" and "Young Adult" taking place (the latter has been conducting a series of pop-up showings around the country). And perhaps the most intriguing, at least because of the degree to which the cards have been held close to the chest, is this year's AFI Festival opener, Clint Eastwood's "J. Edgar." The veteran actor/director is coming off a patchy recent run, with last year's "Hereafter" arguably his worst ever directorial effort, and the film had remained unscreened for anybody, despite opening next Wednesday.

On May 31st this year, Clinton "Clint" Eastwood reached 80 years of age, and he's been acting for 56 of them. Remarkably, since TV show "Rawhide" made him a star in 1958, he's been at the top for almost all that time, having had major box office hits in every decade since the '60s: most recently, "Gran Torino," which surprised most pundits by taking in over $250 million worldwide. There's never quite been an acting career like it, and a retrospective on Clint Eastwood: movie star, would show the breadth and depth of his career.
