While Anchor Bay Nab Starry Channing Tatum-Led Ensemble Drama 'Ten Year'For a while, we were starting to wonder if we'd dreamed the Will Ferrell comedy "Casa De Mi Padre." On almost no one's radar before the start of this year, a surprise trailer for the project, a Spanish-language film co-starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, debuted back in the spring, but nothing's been heard from the film since, and we had to double check our archives to make sure it was a real thing, and not something that we'd imagined after a night with too many telenovelas and too much meth.

And More From The Actor About 'A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas' & Following In The Footsteps Of George TakeiWhen “Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle” premiered in 2004, it followed in the understated footsteps of films like “How High” and “Half Baked” – in other words, no matter how many spliffs the characters burned, the film itself never quite set the box office on fire. However, it became a sensation on home video and cable repeats, finding a legion of fans. For its two stars, John Cho and Kal Penn, the film was a big breakthrough in their careers, leading to a variety of other projects that, perhaps fortuitously, weren’t as pot-related. Cho landed regular spots on the TV shows "Kitchen Confidential" and "FlashForward," and stepped into the shoes of Hikaru Sulu when J.J. Abrams relaunched "Star Trek" in 2009, while Penn appeared on “House” and guested on “How I Met Your Mother” when he wasn’t working with President Obama in the Office of Public Liaison and Intergovernmental Affairs.

Making the leap from TV comic to big-screen star has always been a tricky route -- one flop can put you right back to square one, and conversely, the temptation to take every project that comes your way, risking over-exposing yourself, seems to be a common one. There's no denying that Steve Carell's had some missteps since breaking out of "The Daily Show" and "Anchorman" -- "Evan Almighty," "Get Smart," "Dinner for Schmucks" -- but crucially, most of his films, even the less well-received pictures, have performed relatively well at the box office, and he's now a bona-fide A-lister.

"A wildly ambitious slow burn that succeeds immensely, powered by one of the best performances of Woody Harrelson’s career."

We once described rising Australian actor Joel Edgerton as the "thinking man's Sam Worthington" and, while as unfair as that may sound, we're thinking Hollywood is starting to share our views on him as well.

In early 2010 we reported that writer/director Oren Moverman — who directed "The Messenger" and the upcoming police drama "Rampart" starring Woody Harrelson — was working on an adaptation of William S. Burroughs' "Queer" and staged a test-drive reading of the screenplay at the Sarasota Film Festival that spring. Evidently he was doing a solid for his friend Steve Buscemi (who cameos in both of Moverman's pictures) who would direct and produce the adaptation.

The First Cut Has Just Been Delivered To Warner Bros.While 2011 has been marked by the number of high profile projects that have been iced ("The Dark Tower" and "At the Mountains of Madness" among the biggest), Alfonso Cuarón miraculously avoided the same fate when last year, his ambitious sci-fi tale "Gravity" looked like it was about to crash against the rocks.

“Ghandi” and “Schindler’s List” thespian Ben Kingsley is no stranger to having his name attached to more than a few projects at a time and with his supporting role in this month’s release of Martin Scorsese’s fairytale “Hugo,” and a plum role in Sacha Baron Cohen's “The Dictator” on the way for next spring, Kingsley is as busy as always. So it should come as no surprise that he's now heading up a pretty impressive cast for the big-screen adaptation of the Henrik Ibsen play “A Doll’s House.”
