Shea Whigham isn't exactly a household name you'd instantly recognize, but a quick look at his resume will certainly ring some bells for anyone with a keen eye for the small or silver screen. At least in this writer's eyes, the actor has been doing strong work on a weekly basis as Eli Thompson, the younger brother of Steve Buscemi's protagonist Nucky on HBO show "Boardwalk Empire" with appearances in several films already this year, including "Take Shelter," "The Lincoln Lawyer" and "This Must Be The Place."

Chris Tucker Looking Likely As He Enters Final NegotiationsJulia Stiles' career has been a bit of an odd one. She's been working consistently ever since the late '90s/early aughts but never quite became a household name. In recent years, she's probably best known for her role in the 'Bourne' trilogy, "Mona Lisa Smile" and her turn on the last season of "Dexter." And while the actress can never be quite pegged down, we really didn't expect this bit of news.

In all honesty, two years ago, few outside of Australia had heard of veteran actress Jacki Weaver. Indeed, while she worked on a number of seminal films at home in the 1970s, winning two Australian Film Institute Awards and turning up in Peter Weir's "Picnic At Hanging Rock," she'd been mostly absent from the screen since, focusing instead on stage work in Oz (most recently appearing alongside Cate Blanchett in "Uncle Vanya").

While everyone getting excited about a possible Eddie Murphy comeback now that he has "Tower Heist" and the Oscar hosting gig coming up (jeez, people, have we already forgotten about “Hong Kong Phooey”?) it looks like another Brett Ratner buddy is making some even bolder steps back into the spotlight.

Are BFFs Mark Wahlberg and David O. Russell having trouble? Are there problems in the house that "Three Kings," "I Heart Huckabees" and "The Fighter" built? Nah, it's nothing more than routine scheduling issues but it looks like the two best bros and frequent collaborators won't be reteaming for "The Silver Linings Playbook" -- but one of the earliest names attached the film has returned.
