22 Jump Street
Phil Lord and Chris Miller have built a career out of making things work that really should not have worked. Coming off only the short-lived cult animated series "Clone High," and a brief year on "How I Met Your Mother," the duo made their feature debut with "Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs," an adaptation of a 34-page children's picture book that looked pretty poor on paper, and turned out to be something of a treat for people of any age. Then, they took on a reboot of '80s cop show "21 Jump Street," starring the much-mocked Channing Tatum, and turned it into a fresh and funny spin on both the high school and the buddy cop movie. And only a few months ago, they turned something called "The Lego Movie" into one of the best films of the year so far.

22 Jump Street
Channing Tatum’s career will also be spoken of in terms of two periods, before 2012 and after. Not only did the year find Steven Soderbergh giving Tatum some much-needed prestige, clout and weight with “Magic Mike” but more importantly, the world saw how damn funny the beefcake actor could be in the surprise comedy hit “21 Jump Street.” The much-anticipated sequel, “22 Jump Street,” hits theaters next month and a new clip has arrived online to give you a taste of the laughs in store for you.

Oscars: The Best Underrated Performances By The 2014 Acting Noms
With the Oscar nominations out, and the SAGs and Golden Globes a few weeks in the past, we're entering something of a quiet phase in awards season, with the Academy not even due to begin voting for a few weeks yet. So it seems like a good time to look back.

The fourth season of HBO’s mob drama “Boardwalk Empire” ends this Sunday. It’s an engrossing conclusion that brings heartbreak, tragedy and left-turn surprises you probably wouldn’t have expected. You’ll have to tune in Sunday night for more, but trust us when we say the underrated show is doing some of its best work this season and it’s must-watch TV in general, with one of the best casts on television right now (Steve Buscemi, Michael Shannon, Jeffrey Wright, Michael K. Williams, Kelly McDonald, Shea Whigham, Michael Stuhlbarg and many, many more).

21 Jump Street Brie Larson Jonah Hill
A few months ago we ran into Brie Larson and asked her if she'd be returning for the hotly anticipated sequel to last year's surprise breakthrough "21 Jump Street." She sounded totally in and was looking forward to returning to the lighter world of big budget studio fare after spending a lean year making thought-provoking independent features (like this summer's amazing "The Spectacular Now" and "Short Term 12"). Apparently, this is no longer the case, as she recently told ScreenCrush that she would not be back for another round of R-rated hilarity alongside Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill.

Leonardo DiCaprio Wolf Of Wall Street
We've somehow struggled, so far, to get excited for "The Wolf Of Wall Street." Maybe it's that we've started to take Martin Scorsese for granted -- his last few films, in "The Departed," "Shutter Island" and "Hugo" were all highly entertaining, but perhaps not up to the gold standard of the very best of his work. Perhaps it's that the film seemed to mine, on paper, territory already well-trodden by films like "Wall Street" and "Margin Call." Or maybe we're just tired.

This isn't necessarily shocking news but the timing is sort of weird: The Wrap is reporting that Sony and subtlety-proof Original Films producer Neil H. Moritz have optioned the remake rights to Jacques Audiard's jaw-dropping French crime epic "A Prophet." The original movie, which charted the ascension of a small time criminal who, after being imprisoned, rises in the criminal ranks, was nominated for the 2010 Best Foreign Language Film Oscar and won the Grand Prix award at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. Something tells us the remake will escape similar glories.

Creator/Writer/Producer/Voice of Allen Gregory Shows Another Side of His Unique Brand of Humor On The Small Screen"Allen Gregory" is Jonah Hill's new animated series on Fox, about Allen Gregory de Longpre, a precocious, pretentious 7 year old navigating elementary school life for the first time. During a presentation of the pilot and subsequent Q&A at USC on Sunday, Hill, the cast and crew talked about the making of "Allen Gregory" and their creative process with this new venture. In addition to creating, writing and producing the series, Hill voices the miniature Allen Gregory, who talks like a combination of an Upper East Side grandma and Ari from "Entourage." He has two dads, the snarky/urbane Richard, voiced by French Stewart, and the hunky, warm, possibly straight Jeremy, voiced by Nat Faxon, the comedian who also wrote "The Descendants."

In contrast to the Best Actor & Actress race, which we've examined in the last few weeks, the supporting categories are looking much more open. A-list movie stars like Christian Bale, Matt Damon, Penelope Cruz and Cate Blanchett, who've all figured in recent years, are mostly absent from contention, and only a few performances have really planted a flag in the category, with some initially strong contenders already starting to slip away.

Breaking out as the foul-mouthed Seth in "Superbad," Jonah Hill has been slowly diversifying his CV. With films like "Cyrus" and this weekend's "Moneyball," Hill has been stretching his wings into dramatic territory, he's got "Allen Gregory," a new animated show he co-created premiering on Fox next month, but as long as he's been making the Hollywood rounds, he's been talking about directing, and he's now gotten his feet wet behind the camera.
