American Hustle Bradley Cooper Christian Bale
Okay, while we might prefer the original working title "American Bullshit," it probably would've created a marketing nightmare, so the official replacement? Yeah, it's not too shabby at all.

"They're all going to do things we haven't seen them do in this movie, it's going to be very exciting. Jeremy Renner's going to be like you've never seen him. Bradley Cooper’s going to be like you never seen him. Christian Bale's going to be like you've never seen him before,” David O. Russell told us late last year when we spoke to him during “Silver Linings Playbook” press rounds about his currently-filming, still-untitled, based-on-a-true-story FBI ABSCAM drama/dramedy (or maybe full-on comedy?) Russell added, “they're all playing real-life characters from the ‘70s and they're very intense in an insane drama."

Who does David O. Russell think he is? Woody Allen? Okay, we kid, but the number of name-brand stars he's lining up for his still (aggravatingly) untitled Abscam drama is reaching epic proportions. Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams, Louis C.K., Jennifer Lawrence, Alessandro Nivola, Elisabeth Rohm, Dawn Olivieri and Jack Huston are already on board the currently shooting movie, which is now adding even more cast members.

So remember last month when it seemed like the David O. Russell/Jennifer Lawrence collaborative relationship was going to carry over from "Silver Linings Playbook" and the currently filming Abscam movie to a third project, "The Ends Of The Earth"? You might want to put it back in your pants for the moment.

Okay...we're totally stoked for David O. Russell's Abscam movie, but can we a title already? That little issue aside, the already stacked cast just keeps piling on the talent (and anticipation).

Having landed its Raphael just before in the weekend in the shape of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" actor Alan Ritchson, Michael Bay hasn't hung around before locking down the rest of the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" for the mo-cap-heavy reboot of the comic/animation franchise he's producing for director Jonathan Liebesman. Deadline report that the mutant quartet is being filled out by Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Jeremy Howard as Donatello and Noel Fisher as Michelangelo. The latter's perhaps the best-known of the quartet, having previously appeared in Liebsesman's "Battle: Los Angeles," as well as "Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part Two" and "Hatfields & McCoys." Howard seems to be a complete newcomer, while Ploszek is our immediate favorite of the four, given that he appeared in an episode of "Parks & Recreation." The four join Megan Fox in the film, which opens on May 20th, 2014.

The talent involved in David O. Russell’s untitled Abscam project has swollen to such epic proportions in recent months with Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams, and Louis C. K. and it just keep growing. The latest actress to be cast, Elisabeth Rohm is probably most well known for her stint in the D.A.'s office on "Law & Order," and was last seen in the thriller “Transit.”

George Clooney aside, it's been a strong trend in David O. Russell's career to secure great performances from actors and then continue to bring them back for further projects. The director's latest instance of such is with the Weinstein-backed romantic drama, “The Ends of the Earth,” reteaming with his “Silver Linings Playbook” actress Jennifer Lawrence, and now another previous collaborator is slated to come onboard.

So, we picked Jennifer Lawrence as our Woman Of The Year for 2012, and....toldja. If there was any doubt last fall, the actress secured her place as America's sweetheart Sunday night by being the awkward nerd we all wanted to be at the Oscars. From falling up the stairs to get her Best Actress award, to totally freaking the fuck out when Jack Nicholson smoothly hits on her backstage and handling the idiotic questions from the press corps with aplomb, it seems there's one more way for Lawrence to endear herselves to us.
