True Detective
So, quick question: where has Woody Harrelson been through the media blitz that surrounded HBO's phenomenal "True Detective"? While Matthew McConaughey got the lion's share of the praise and media attention, let's pour one out for Woody Harrelson who was just as good in a far less showy role, with a character whose changes are much more subtle. Well, John Hillcoat was certainly paying attention to his work.

Over the weekend, "The Act of Killing" director Joshua Oppenheimer and producers Errol Morris and Werner Herzog hit Reddit to talk about the Oscar nominated documentary, but of course, the conversation wound up going to many different places. But for our purposes, one of the morsels that dropped had to do with casting on the next effort from Morris.

Brie Larson, Community
She’s had the success of “Short Term 12,” which put her on the map as a serious actress (one which many suggested was Oscar-worthy), and she showed her supporting mettle in “21 Jump Street” and “The Spectacular Now” plus a recent successful turn on “Community” (see the image above).

It’s difficult to keep tabs on the absolute torrent of curveballs that Shia LaBeouf has thrown our way in his quest to explore the celebrity condition. His dedication to plagiarizing Joaquin Phoenix’s arc in “I’m Still Here” is admirable, though: first there was the tales of unhinged behavior, then the retirement from acting, and recently the grand admission of it all as performance art. All of which leaves (hopefully) only one last move: the return to the big screen.

At the end of the summer, news surfaced that Universal had snapped up a script by comedian Amy Schumer that she was writing as a star vehicle for herself, with Judd Apatow producing. And it was interesting, but not exactly monumental news, as Apatow often puts his weight behind rising comic talent (he's a producer on Lena Dunham's "Girls," for example). But it looks like that producing gig has turned into his next directorial project.
