Also Lines Up Serial Killer Pic 'The Frozen Ground' With John Cusack & Nicolas CageSo, Katherine LaNasa comes to the table with some pretty interesting factoids. She's the ex-wife of both French Stewart and Dennis Hopper (and the mother of Henry Hopper who you saw in "Restless"), and while her name might not be familiar, she's been working steadily for years, mostly on TV, racking up appearances in a number of shows. Maybe you remember her as Lydia in "Two and a Half Men" (see above) or Beverly Ford in "Big Love." She was also the lead on the short lived NBC sitcom "Three Sisters." But the actress is making a huge leap into feature films, and with three projects on the horizon you'll be hearing her name and seeing her more often.

'Bad Santa 2' Also In The Works Midway through what's now nearly 25 years in the film business, Billy Bob Thornton gave his career new life by writing, directing and acting in the drama "Sling Blade," picking up a Best Screenplay Academy Award for his troubles. While the film quickly became an easy punchline (really, who among 1990s stand-up comedians didn't have a Sling Blade impersonation in their repertoire?), it holds up well today, and seemed to signal the arrival of a major directorial talent.
