Jason Schwartzman and Roman Coppola are family (they're cousins), so they are never more than a phone call away. But even if they weren't related, we imagine they would have found each other anyway. The duo have forged a relationship that has seen them work together in many capacities -- co-writers, actor/director and more -- and they're clearly on the save wavelength. So, when Coppola made his debut feature, "CQ," it's not a shock that he called Schwartzman for a role. When over a decade later he made his sophomore effort, "A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III," he called Schwartzman again. And now, for the short film "Die Again, Undead One," the pair are once again back together.

The cast members of "The Lord of the Rings" have had mixed success in the eight years since the franchise wrapped up. Viggo Mortensen and Orlando Bloom became fully-fledged movie stars (the latter less so in recent years), and Dominic Monaghan managed surprising longevity as a star of "Lost," but Sean Astin's mostly been stuck in Adam Sandler movies and one-off TV appearances, while we're pretty sure that Billy Boyd washed our windshield at a traffic light not so long ago.

'The Vicious Kind' Director Lee Toland Krieger At The HelmPresumably, Rashida Jones has some kind of flaw. You can't be bitten by Michael Jackson's pet monkey Bubbles as a child (as she was) and come out completely unscathed. But she certainly doesn't seem to demonstrate any: the Harvard-educated daughter of legendary music producer Quincy Jones has made it entirely on her own steam, thanks to being traffic-stoppingly beautiful and immensely talented, both comedically (recent episodes of the spectacularly good "Parks and Recreation," on which she's a regular, have seen her stretch her comic wings) and dramatically (see "Monogamy," where she's infinitely better than the film, or "The Social Network"). Sidenote, to Zack Snyder: she's also the best possible choice to play Lois Lane, and you should hire her right now.
