Since leading the ill-fated Mike Judge-helmed “Idiocracy” in 2006, Luke Wilson hasn’t had a high-profile gig -- even something like “Middle Men” barely hit theaters -- but now the actor has snatched a role in the Black List-approved “A Many Splintered Thing.” First-time director Justin Reardon will helm the film, described as being in the same spirit of “Amelie” and “(500) Days Of Summer.” Wilson will appear alongside a talented ensemble that includes Anthony Mackie, Aubrey Plaza, Philip Baker Hall, Topher Grace and Giovanni Ribisi with Chris Evans and Michelle Monaghan as the leads in the the story of a man (Evans) who has given up on love, until he meets an engaged woman (Monaghan) at a charity dinner, by posing as a philanthropist. He pretends to be her platonic friend, all while trying to win her for himself, away from a man who doesn't like going on dates.

To say that the third season of "Louie" has taken a more serialized approach would be an exaggeration, but both thematically and narratively, Louis C.K's used a little more continuity than usual across the episodes. Indeed, last week's season high -- with a more stand-alone approach -- was almost the exception the rule, with the series so far including a number of recurring characters, callbacks to previous seasons, and even the first two-part episode.

Given how charming, winning and funny "Damsels In Distress" is (read our TIFF review here), we sincerely hope that we won't have to wait years and years for another Whit Stillman picture. After all, nearly twelve years will have elapsed between his third film, "The Last Days Of Disco," and the release of 'Damsels' in a few weeks, and we're not sure we can take that length of break again. But the good news is, when we spoke to Stillman earlier today on the press rounds for his new film, he's got several projects on the go.

There appears to be some kind of legal mandate that any actor who spends time on the East Coast has to, at some point, guest star on "Law & Order" or one of its many spin-offs. Over the 20-year history of the franchise, it's managed to find room for the diverse, acclaimed likes of Robin Williams, Angela Lansbury, Marcia Gay Harden, Ellen Burstyn, Brenda Blethyn, Dianne Weist, Frank Langella, Alfred Molina, Stephen Rea, Sharon Stone, Jeremy Irons, Laura Linney, Liza Minnelli, Holly Hunter and Julia Roberts. Hell, there are not many shows that have had guest appearances from both Ludacris AND Isabelle Huppert.

With all the buzz going on up in Park City, it's easy to forget that stuff is still happening in good ol' Hollywood, and the past day or so has brought some changes to some brewing films.

Not many actresses would be able to recover from doing "that scene" in Vincent Gallo's "The Brown Bunny," but then again, Chloë Sevigny has hardly played by anyone's rules. She broke out in the controversial "Kids" and from there has amassed an impressive CV working with directors like Lars von Trier ("Dogville," "Manderlay"), David Fincher ("Zodiac"), Woody Allen ("Melinda & Melinda"), Whit Stillman ("The Last Days Of Disco"), Jim Jarmusch ("Broken Flowers") and Harmony Korine ("Gummo," "Julien Donkey-Boy"). And oh yeah, there was that Oscar nomination for "Boys Don't Cry" as well. She's also come on the radar of mainstream America with her role in the HBO series "Big Love." However, her next role might be her most memorable one to date.

Review: The Drug Kingpin As Academic In 'Mr. Nice'

Movies, and society as a whole, have struggled with how to portray drug dealers. The default showcase is the bloodthirsty villain, the person who is so one-dimensional as to think he knows what he’s doing is wrong, but does so anyway. But the cinema isn’t afraid to glamorize the profession either, showcasing the supplier as paradigm-busting rock star -- the best cars, the best planes, the best fashion, with a sex partner on each arm. Few opportunities have been taken to redefine the drug dealer as someone with a job, someone who isn’t desperately obsessed with his rise and fall, or the media circus that may relate to his surroundings. Then again, the argument could be that there haven’t been any on-screen kingpins quite like Howard Marks, the renaissance man at the heart of “Mr. Nice.”

HBO has been lining up terrific projects left and right with quite a few being announced just this past week. Today, Deadline reports that HBO is developing a drama project titled "Upstate." The project comes from eOne Television and Cooper's Town Productions, headed by actor Philip Seymour Hoffman and Emily Ziff. Written by Brett C. Leonard (HBO's "Hung") and playwright Bob Glaudini (who collaborated with Hoffman on "Jack Goes Boating"), the script focuses on Roy Perkins, a recently laid-off man who relocates his family to an undisclosed rural location in America in order to become a correctional officer in a private, for-profit prison. The town and Perkins' family begins to prosper from this new prison, and tensions inside (and outside) the prison begin to erupt. There's no word yet as to whether Hoffman will star in the lead role, or whether this project is being conceived as a pilot for a series or as a one-shot miniserie, but it sounds like some interesting material to be sure.
