Jillian Bell
Of the many talents belonging to Paul Thomas Anderson, he's been savvy at casting his films, always finding the right face and right actor, for roles in his films. This had led to longterm collaborators such as the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, and short term ones too like Luis Guzman. And while we'll have to see where Jillian Bell winds up among the PTA players, clearly he's currently enjoying working with her.

A film we're already touting as a possible Best Picture nominee, Paul Thomas Anderson continues to keep the veil tightly closed on his forthcoming "Inherent Vice." We do know that the movie is deep in post-production, with Jonny Greenwood having already completed recording his score, but we reckon just as he did with "The Master," PTA is taking his time, showing the film to close friends and colleagues and making sure everything is just the way he wants before he shows it off to the world. And while a December 12th release is already slated, unless you're in the lucky places that get that limited release opening, you'll be waiting until 2015 to see this one.

What do we know so far about "Inherent Vice"? Frankly, not a helluva lot outside of the fantastic ensemble cast and the return of Johnny Greenwood to the composer's podium. And even with a release date set for later this year, "Inherent Vice" was curiously absent in Warner Bros. presentation this week at CinemaCon (though we really don't see Paul Thomas Anderson being convinced by anybody to splice sizzle footage from his movie for an industry conference). But there has been one person talking loudly about the project: Josh Brolin.

 The 2015 Best Picture Contenders, Premature pics
The star of "Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past" and the singer from 30 Seconds Of Mars are Oscar winners, "12 Years A Slave" beat "Gravity," Adele Tazeem became the most famous non-existent person on the planet, and no one's stopped talking about selfies for about 72 hours. The streets of LA are now full of discarded The Weinstein Company interns, who haven't seen daylight for months and are only capable of saying the words "Everything you are and everything you have is 'cos of that butler." Yep, the 2013/2014 awards season has come to an end.

Oldboy, Josh Brolin
When he considered taking on an American remake of Park Chan Wook's “Oldboy," screenwriter Mark Protosevich (“I Am Legend”) knew the score. Much of our time during a recent Los Angeles roundtable was spent on his reasons for adapting the new Spike Lee-directed film, having heard the many complaints and eye rolls when the project was announced. And surprisingly, he counts himself among that crowd. “I initially heard years ago the idea of Justin Lin directing a remake, and my first reaction was, 'Oh, really?' " Protosevich said. “Which I think is the reaction of a lot of people: if you love the original, that instinctive, gut reaction part of you says, 'Aw, what's wrong with leaving the original alone?'
