In what could be seen as a sort of seasonal and spiritual companion piece to Olivier Assayas’ 2008 film “Summer Hours,” director Arnaud Desplechin’s film “A Christmas Tale” quietly dazzled with its warm infusion of family dynamics and melancholic themes of aging and forgiveness. Sadly, not much has been heard from Desplechin since that film’s release, but recently news of his latest project has materialized, along with main casting of another actor out of the spotlight for some time as well.

Now, thanks again to the trigger-happy paps, another piece of casting has possibly been revealed with rising British actress Imogen Poots spotted shooting with the film's star Christian Bale.

So, it seems Benicio Del Toro and Cameron Diaz are determined to work together. A couple of years ago they were attached to star in a pretty fucking dreadful-sounding rom-com "An Ex To Grind," which didn't really get going, and now they're attached to a no-less-promising "Agent: Century 21."

Benicio Del Toro, oh where have you been? After his impressive performance in Steven Soderbergh's "Che," Del Toro appeared in the botched monster movie revival "The Wolfman" and has kind of disappeared for a while. He popped in a brief cameo in Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere," directed a segment of the forthcoming omnibus "7 Days In Havana" and this year he's set to return in what looks like a helluva role in Oliver Stone's "Savages."

Benicio Del Toro's always seemed a little uneasy with the idea of stardom. He's been working in the big leagues, on-and-off, since "Licence To Kill" in 1989, and took a big leap up with his near-incomprehensible performance in "The Usual Suspects," but every time he steps towards the A-list, he seems to take two steps back.

When news broke a few weeks ago that Benicio del Toro was being courted by J.J. Abrams for the role as the Big Bad villain in their hotly anticipated "Star Trek" sequel, we guessed there was a fairly big chance that del Toro could play fan favorite 'Trek' villain Khan. That's not exactly a stretch, given comments by screenwriter Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman made it sound like they were looking into the "Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan" story as possible fodder for the sequel and the fact that del Toro and original Khan Ricardo Montalban share the same vague ethnic background (Montalban is Mexican, del Toro is Puerto Rican). In short succession it was confirmed yesterday that del Toro would play Khan...then just as quickly denied (by J.J. Abrams himself).

Just as his hero Steven Spielberg has John Williams, writer/producer/director J.J. Abrams has stayed true to composer Michael Giacchino. The man has tuned up every one of Abrams' films to date, in addition to working on shows he's produced like "Lost" and "Alias," and once again, they will put their talents together on another project.

Aaron Johnson & Taylor Kitsch Look Set To StarIt's kind of funny how things work sometimes. Last month when Jennifer Lawrence first entered talks to star in Oliver Stone's "Savages," a handful of other names were mentioned for roles at the time including Benicio Del Toro. In subsequent reports -- including the announcement of Lawrence's departure due to "The Hunger Games" -- his name again seemed to be absent, but lo and behold he's the one left standing.
