Plus New Photos Of Sarah Jessica Parker, Lea Michele & Sofia Vergara In 'New Year's Eve'We suppose she wasn't meant to be glamorous or pretty in this picture. WB has released a first look photo of Naomi Watts in Clint Eastwood's biopic "J. Edgar" starring Leonardo DiCaprio, and the actress looks positively dowdy and frumpy. That's by design. She's playing Helen Gandy, a Justice Department file clerk who ended up being Hoover’s personal secretary. Not the sexiest role in the film, though in one version of Dustin Lance Black's screenplay, if we recall correctly, there is one brief sequence where she and Hoover attempt to go out on a date, which doesn't really work out. Following Hoover's death in 1972, Gandy spent weeks destroying his personal file, thought to be where the most incriminating material he used to manipulate and control the most powerful figures in Washington was kept, though we're pretty sure Eastwood's drama won't extend that far into his history.

There's a basic appeal to the idea of the team-up movie. Since the dawn of fan fiction, people have dreamed of combining their favorite heroes, and it's proved to be lucrative big-screen niche, from "Godzilla vs.King Kong" and "Alien vs. Predator" to next summer's "The Avengers." So it only makes sense that we'd eventually get a female-driven version of the genre, and by combining a trio of the biggest stars in the rom-com world, along with an acting legend, that seems to be what the producers of "Gently Down the Stream" are doing: it's like "The Avengers," but with stars of terrible romantic comedies.

With "Killers" tanking and her next effort "One For The Money" relegated to the critical wasteland of a January 27, 2012 release date, has America fallen out of love with Katherine Heigl? That remains to be seen, but clearly the actress is on a bit of a slide these days and she's hoping the creatively encouraging home of HBO can right the ship, but too bad she's taking the most boring project ever over to the cable titan.

It looks like Katherine Heigl just got Nic Caged. Her upcoming murder-mystery comedy "One For The Money" was previously set for a summer debut of July 8th. It was then moved to June 3rd where it would have squared off against "X-Men: First Class," but Lionsgate then wisely decided that trying to go toe-to-toe with the tentpole behemoth was a bad idea and finally pulled the film off the calendar altogether. Well, it now has a new date, and it's in the wasteland of early winter programming.

Katherine Heigl's 'One For The Money' Doesn't Bank On Beating 'X-Men,' Pulled From Release

It's only been a couple of weeks since Lionsgate announced it would move Katherine Heigl's "One for the Money" out of a July 8th release date to an earlier date of June 3rd. Reasons for doing so included not wanting to release against Sony Pictures' "The Zookeeper" and Warner Bros.' "Horrible Bosses;" both are comedies that would directly compete with the Janet Evanovich novel-based murder mystery-comedy. In moving to an earlier date, producers only lined the film up against Fox's expected smash hit "X-Men: First Class." Though at first they probably thought the two films were different enough to draw their respective audiences, it looks like the studio isn't going to play chicken any longer.

Generally speaking, the more an actor's career goes on, the more beloved they become: witness Kirk Douglas at the Oscars this past weekend, or the continuing work of Betty White. Over time, an actor becomes so familiar to audiences that they start to feel almost like part of one's family. Even when someone falls by the wayside for a few years, affection can be maintained for them -- hence the popularity of 'where are they now?' type features. Of course, this doesn't work for everyone -- for instance, take the case of Katherine Heigl.

The words "acrimonious" and "Katherine Heigl" never seem to be too far apart, and once again, the actress appears to have butted heads with executives.

Basically, Katherine Heigl is making her own 'Benjamin Button.' The actress recently joined the romantic comedy "Adaline" whose premise "revolves around a beautiful woman who hasn't aged in 100 years but hasn't found love, either. She finally meets that guy who might be worth embracing mortality, and all the wrinkles and sagging that comes with it." Sounds a little ridiculous right? We haven't gotten to the good part yet. Adaline gains her immortality when just after she dies in a car accident she is immediately and almost simultaneously struck by lightning, keeping her forever in her 20s. Amazing.
