Speaking of "Fringe," the show's biggest name, former "Dawson's Creek" star Joshua Jackson, looks to be using his summer hiatus from the show productively. The actor's been something of a fixture on screens for almost two decades now, and is currently doing his best-ever work on the J.J. Abrams-produced sci-fi show, but, outside of his early roles in the "Mighty Ducks" franchise, he's never exactly had a ton of success on the big-screen.

Bruce Willis & Ryan Phillippe Shamed50 Cent is the gift that keeps on giving. Last year, the rapper/actor made a 10-picture, $200 million deal between his Cheetah Vision production banner and Hedge Fund Film Partners which appears to be resulting in a bunch of films shot on the cheap with no attention given to any details or to even the most basic tenets of filmmaking. Case in point: "Things Fall Apart." But this time Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillippe were somehow conned into this latest fiasco, "Set Up," which now has a trailer and we have no idea who keeps getting hired to cut these (though we secret hope Fiddy is doing it himself).

Despite Fox telling us last month that there was no script in place for a "Die Hard 5" and that any potential sequel would be "way off" that hasn't stopped gums from flapping about what we might see in the next installment of the franchise.

Kevin Smith did have issues with Bruce Willis on the set of "Cop Out," Kevin Smith didn't have issues with Bruce Willis on the set of "Cop Out." Which one is it? In a 2009 interview, the "Clerks" filmmaker called the action star "undirectable," but later qualified that statement with, "I think somebody took that as negative. It's not like, "Ahh, I can't deal with him!" It's just how do you direct Bruce Willis to play Bruce Willis? I can direct Jason Mewes to play Jay. I can direct Affleck to play a fucking angel — or to kill his career as a grieving father. But I can't fucking tell Bruce Willis how to be Bruce Willis — cause he's fucking Bruce Willis!"

Bruce Willis & Jean-Claude Van Damme To Show Up In 'Expendables 2'?

Speaking to Access Hollywood during the Golden Globes, Bruce Willis let it slip in a roundabout, not totally confirmed way that "The Expendables 2" was looking to shoot this year and that he may star. "Apparently it's going to happen this year... As far as I know, barring any unforeseen circumstances, but yeah, I would love to be a part of it." Willis generated buzz with a cameo in the first film as the mysterious Church, a character who, in a draft of the script we read, has a surprising backstory that revealed him as the mastermind pulling the strings for the Expendables' suicide mission. Which, of course, ended up not suicidal at all, since Sylvester Stallone and co. might as well have nuked the place at the end of that movie.
