It's not easy being a child star of the '80s. Few have made it into adulthood without drugs, audience disinterest or mismanagement sidelining their careers or halting any momentum they might've had. And in some cases, you turn into the pod person that was formerly Kirk Cameron. But for Ralph Macchio, he's avoided the tabloid headlines of some of his contemporaries, and fallen largely into a path that sees him riffing on his former celebrity. But he's lined up a role that could be a nice entry into more serious roles, or just a reminder that he's around, willing to work and that he's not the Karate Kid anymore.

While her better half has more or less upstaged her in recent times, Jessica Biel looks to be going through a bit of renaissance this year featuring in Len Wiseman's "Total Recall" remake as well as Pascal Laugier's "The Tall Man." Now there's a high-profile project to add to that list with the actress joining 'Story Of Anvil!' director Sacha Gervasi's "Alfred Hitchcock And The Making Of Psycho."

Well this is a pretty inspired piece of casting. "Anvil! The Story Of Anvil" director Sacha Gervasi continues to build up his movie-about-a-movie pic "Alfred Hitchcock And The Making Of Psycho," and he's already got two great veterans on board with Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren playing Alfred Hitchock and his wife Alma Reville respectively. And now he's found his Janet Leigh.

Looks like we're gonna have two Alfred Hitchcock movies on the way, and in a rare feat, they both look promising. Just yesterday it was revealed that Toby Jones and Sienna Miller were heading up"The Girl," which focuses on the director's obsessive relationship with Tippi Hedren, who starred in "The Birds" and "Marnie." But in case you forgot, over at Fox Searchlight, another movie has been brewing from "Anvil!" director Sacha Gervasi with the self-explanatory title "Alfred Hitchcock And The Making of Psycho." In his flick, Anthony Hopkins plays the legendary director and now he's got one of the classiest gals around to hang off of his arm.
