Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill were spotted hopping on a yacht in Sydney, Australia today. The Django Unchained costars, along with friends including Lukas Haas and Kevin Connolly, joined a party in full swing. Leo was seen chatting up his friends and some bikini-clad woman on board the ship, and high-fiving fellow revelers. The actor previously spent several months in late 2011 and early 2012 Down Under on the set of The Great Gatsby alongside Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, and Joel Edgerton. The film won't be out until the Spring, but in the meantime, Leo is enjoying the success of Django. Not only did Quentin Tarantino's latest effort come in second at the boxoffice on Christmas Day, but Leo's performance as a sadistic slave owner in the film is getting high praise from critics and his fellow actors. Leo is nominated for a SAG award and Golden Globe for the role, »

"Touch" has booked Ron Rifkin in a guest-starring role for the show's season 2 finale this spring. Although the actor is perhaps best-known for playing the role of the evil Arvin Sloane in "Alias," Rifkin's role on "Touch" may be a little more positive.
As first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Rifkin will play Isaac, an imposing rabbi who crosses paths with Kiefer Sutherland's Martin Bohm in some assuredly complicated way. Isaac is described as a believer in destiny and is a man clothed in a black suit, a tallit shawl with gold tzitzit of gold, and a gold yarmulke.
Rifkin, who most recently was seen as Marvin Exley in several episodes of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," also co-starred as Saul Holden on "Brothers & Sisters." He is one of several announced guest stars for the upcoming season of "Touch," including D.B. Sweeney, Maria Bello, Lukas Haas and Mykelti Williamson. »
After much speculation and of the many candidates, Dane DeHaan has been chosen as the heir apparent to James Franco as the next Harry Osborn in the sequel to The Amazing Spider-man. Director Marc Webb made the announcement on his Twitter.
DeHaan burst onto the scene with his turn in Chronicle, the superhero found footage film from Josh Trank, and has had roles in In Treatment, True Blood, Lincoln, and Lawless. Now he has his chance at stardom, as it’s clear that Marc Webb and company went with the “dark and edgy” side of Harry, and not the dreamy athletic route that had also been rumored. Here’s the press release:
Dane DeHaan will join the cast of the next installment of The Amazing Spider-Man™ along side Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx and Shailene Woodley as Columbia Pictures prepares to begin production on the next chapter of the blockbuster franchise, »

While some of might still be holding out for that Aaron Sorkin-penned Steve Jobs biopic, there’s still Joshua Michael Stern‘s Sundance-premiering, Ashton Kutcher-starring jOBS to look forward to. Yet, surely, no one is looking forward to this one quite as much as Kutcher, who looks tickled pink to not only be starring in what sounds like a quality film (sorry, Just Married!), but pretty excited by how much he looks like the Apple founder, as evidenced by a brand new still from the film. We can’t wait for Kutcher to fill out those black turtlenecks later in the film, however. jOBS will serve as the Closing Night Film of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, and its official fest synopsis tells us: “The true story of one of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history, jOBS chronicles the defining 30 years of Steve Jobs’ life. jOBS is a candid, inspiring »

The studio issued a press release after director Marc Webb announced on Twitter that he was excited to have DeHaan (above) on board as Harry Osborn, Peter Parker's friend and eventual enemy who was played by James Franco in the Sam Raimi trilogy.
Other actors considered for the role reportedly included Alden Ehrenreich and Brady Corbet along with Sam Claflin, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth and Boyd Holbrook. Redmayne is also said to be on a shortlist for the role of Star-Lord in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy.
In The Amazing Spider-Man sequel, Woodley is playing Mary Jane Watson and Foxx has been cast as the villain, Electro, who gains electrical powers after he is struck by lightning.
Foxx told Entertainment Tonight: "Electro is a great character. I met with the director, »

Here’s your first look at Ashton Kutcher from the bio pic “jOBS”. (They’re apparently officially spelling it “jOBS” instead of “Jobs”. You know, like iPhone. Clever dogs.) This is not to be mistaken with the other Steve Jobs biopic being written by Aaron Sorkin. This one stars Kutcher, who looks like he’s doing a photoshoot … on top of a desk, while wearing clothes from a ’70s porn set. Or some such. The true story of one of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history, jOBSchronicles the defining 30 years of Steve Jobs’ life. jOBS is a candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently. “jOBS” also stars Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, Matthew Modine, and is directed by Joshua Michael Stern. The film will be making its premiere at Sundance next year »
The Joshua Michael Stern-directed Steve Jobs biopic that stars Ashton Kutcher as titular ‘visionary’ has unveiled a first image, thanks to Variety. If there was ever a doubt, the first official shot proves that Kutcher is quite a match for the young Jobs, looks-wise. Have a look below:
What’s less certain is whether Kutcher will have the dramatic chops to carry a performance that’ll be so closely scrutinised, but if he does pull it off, it’ll surely be a gamechanger for him.

The film is a Western comedy in the vein of Blazing Saddles, »

Earlier today, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb confirmed that Dane DeHaan is portraying Harry Osborn in the superhero sequel. Sony Pictures has issued a press release that also confirms Jamie Foxx has joined the cast as the villainous Electro. Jamie Foxx also revealed a few tidbits about the character in an interview, which you can check out below, along with the official press release.
"Electro is a great character. I met with the director, Marc Webb, I met with Andrew Garfield, and we talked. I think Electro will be an exciting character to play because he's a genius electrician-type person, and he gets the short end of the stick from the whole world, and the next thing you know he turns it on."
With the exception of a pair of Fox Searchlight titles (The East and Stoker), Warner Bros.’ Before Midnight and 6 hour mini-series from Jane Campion (Top of the Lake) the 2013 Sundance Film Festival Premieres program is chock-full of acquisition friendly titles. Fourteen in all, the selection includes several returning filmmakers in Drake Doremus, David Gordon Green, Rob Epstein & Jeffrey Friedman and Michael Winterbottom and Joseph Gordon-Levitt — all filmmakers that I accurately predicted would return with product and when we find cast names/star wattage we usually find quality – not surprisingly, four Blacklist listed projects The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman (’07), A.C.O.D. (’08), Stoker (’10), The Way, Way Back (’10) (joining the previously announced Toy’s House and Spectacular Now) are among the announcements. And final note: the chances of bumping into either actors Dermont Mulroney or James Franco at a Park City party have now increased: Franco who brings his experimental directed film Interior. Leather Bar. »

You’re probably already well-aware that Ashton Kutcher was cast as Apple founder and “hero of cool” Steve Jobs for an upcoming biopic – apparently based on a passing physical resemblance. Well, now you can see just what Kutcher looks like when he’s leaning over a desk all seductively (but equally serious) in super-Steve Jobs mode, given that the first official image of the actor has been unveiled (that’s it above).
The pic – which is currently titled jOBS because the filmmakers thought that would be the most annoying – hopes to tell “the true story of one of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history and chronicles the defining 30 years of Jobs’ life.” Kutcher will presumably lose large amounts of his hair as the years go by, a clever narrative trick that will keeps audiences nicely in tune with the fragmented time frame.
jOBS is also set to star Dermot Mulroney, »

Yep, it's even more from the Sundance Film Festival with a returning director, a new biopic on a late great, and one of world cinema's most treasured helmers all with something to prove. First up, a look via The Film Stage at "Like Crazy" director Drake Doremus' reteam with Felicity Jones for "Breathe In," a drama co-starring Guy Pearce and Amy Ryan. Official synopsis: When a foreign exchange student arrives in a small upstate New York town, she challenges the dynamics of her host family's relationships and alters their lives forever. Next, Ashton Kutcher will attempt to channel the late Apple founder Steve Jobs in the auto-correct nightmare "jOBS." Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine also feature in the picture that will close the fest. Official synopsis: The true story of one of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history, jOBS chronicles the defining 30 years of Steve. »
