Josh Hutcherson helped bring in over $123 million this weekend with Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I. And at 5'7", he joins a distinct group of leading men who may loom huge on screen but, in person, aren't quite as tall as you might imagine. We're breaking down Hollywood's "short list," from tallest to shortest.

Josh's Hunger Games co-stars may significantly tower over him but he's certainly not alone in the fight--Hollywood A-listers Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Cruise are also 5'7". And even though the biggest action stars of all time is on the shorter side, he has previously wed glamazon women like Nicole Kidman (5'11") and Katie Holmes (5'9").

This story first appeared in the Dec. 5 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. The holiday season might boast the first R-rated comedy ever to open on Christmas Day — Sony's Seth Rogen raunch-fest The Interview — but the bigger risk is an overabundance of family films. Duking it out in late December will be two adaptations of Broadway musicals: Annie, also from Sony, and Disney's Into the Woods, starring Meryl Streep, plus Fox's threequel Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, starring Ben Stiller and the late Robin Williams. And that doesn't count DreamWorks Animation's Thanksgiving entry

Rome – Rome’s Cinecitta Studios is boasting a burst of biz prompted by tax incentives which are luring back Hollywood majors, including Paramount and MGM with their “Ben Hur” remake more than five decades after the Charlton Heston original shot at the famed facilities.
A portion of the upcoming 24th James Bond film is also among high-profile pics scheduled to shoot in Rome early next year.
Cameras are set to roll at Cinecitta starting in February 2015 on MGM and Paramount’s “Ben Hur” redo, to be helmed by Timur Bekmambetov with Jack Huston in the title role, according to a Cinecitta statement.

Zoolander 2 has been on the horizon now for many years with a will it / won’t it vibe hanging over it and Ben Stiller for quite some time. It looks like some heels are getting on the catwalk though, as Penelope Cruz is apparently signing on to star in the blue steel sequel. As you’d expect, not much is known about the movie. By all accounts, it’s set 10 years after the events of the original, where the guys have been rejected by the fashion industry due to their age, and as a result are back to square one. Zoolander 2 will be out whenever. Personally, I wonder is there much appetite for a sequel. While there is quite a bit of cult love for the original, it’s still an overrated movie that really doesn’t warrant a sequel, especially after all this time. It’s not »

She is really, really ridiculously good looking. Penélope Cruz is joining up to star with Ben Stiller in the sequel that everyone has been waiting for, Zoolander 2, Deadline is reporting. The Spanish actress recently wrapped Ma ma, and she is also set to play a small role in Sacha Baron Cohen's comedy Grimsby. The Oscar winner will join returning cast members Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell in the comedy that follows Derek Zoolander, the male model who finds himself blissfully unaware of anything but his good looks.

We’ve been hearing rumors about a second Zoolander feature for what seems like years now — hey, it has actually been whole years! — and while we never exactly gave up hope that we would (one day!) suck back another hot batch of orange mocha Frappuccinos with the gang again, we haven’t been holding our breath on the feature. Turns out, that’s a good thing! We, like, totally would have died! But Zoolander 2 does apparently live, and it’s started casting to prove it. Deadline reports that Zoolander 2, set to be directed by star Ben Stiller and with a script by Justin Theroux (remember, he penned Tropic Thunder for Stiller), will feature a part for Penelope Cruz of all starlets, with Stiller back as the Blue Steel-faced model moron, and rumors that we can expect to see both Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell back for more vigorously persisting.

Ben Stiller is set to reprise his role as male model Derek Zoolander, and will direct from a script by Justin Theroux. Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell are expected to reprise their roles as Derek's rival Hansel and the villainous Mugatu.
The success of "Dumb and Dumber To" at the box office this past weekend has reportedly helped Paramount in their decision to push forward on the sequel which Stiller has been championing for some time.

We've been hearing about a sequel to "Zoolander" for several years. And now comes word that Paramount Pictures is officially moving with the new movie, which will be directed by Justin Theroux. The big news is that Penelope Cruz just signed on for a role in "Zoolander 2," which will bring back Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell. The original only grossed $60 million worldwide, which is why the studio has been slow to greenlit the sequel. But after the great performance of "Dumb and Dumber To," studios are once again looking at their properties for a potential revival. Jonah Hill was previously rumored to play the villain in a story about Derek (Stiller) getting hired to be a personal model for an Arab Sheikh and learning that models are being turned into oil. »
During the 1990s, Jennifer Aniston was one of the most popular actresses in the world. She may not have been blowing up the box office like Julia Roberts, Meg Ryan or Sandra Bullock, she was instead the star of the hit comedy show Friends – which had turned her into a household name. So popular was Aniston during this period that he hair even became known as “The Rachel”, a much-requested style for hairdressers during the 90s. The show was watched by millions around the world and has become one of the most celebrated Us sitcoms of all-time, launching Aniston and her co-stars into hot property. Particularly as the show couldn’t last forever and the cast would look to transition to the big screen.
Aniston was no stranger to cinema. She got her first break in the horror comedy Leprechaun in 1993, but would take a break during her first few years on Friends. »

Dumb And Dumber To has inspired Paramount Pictures to move ahead with a sequel to the 2001 comedy hit Zoolander! Penelope Cruz has just signed on for a role in Zoolander 2, which is set to be directed by Justin Theroux. Ben Stiller, who also directed the original, will reprise his role as dimwitted male supermodel.
While the original film wasn't a huge hit when it hit theaters, Zoolander quickly became a favorite when the DVD came out.
There's no word on who Cruz will play. She's set to reprise her role as Angelica in the upcoming Pirate of the Caribbean 5.

Deadline reports that Penélope Cruz has hopped on the Zoolander 2 train and will star with Ben Stiller. Justin Theroux is attached to pen the script, and Stiller will perform double duties as the movie's director and non-ambiturner, ridiculously good-looking lead. Rumors that Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson will return as Mugatu and Hansel, respectively, have still not been confirmed, and there's no word on whether Cruz will be playing a super model. (But here's to hoping Cruz makes a Nespresso for Mugatu and something weird happens.) As Cinema Blend notes, Stiller has been teasing the follow-up for roughly a decade. No pressure, guys. »

Zoolander 2 will see Ben Stiller reprise the lead role of Derek Zoolander, and it looks like he's going to be directing too (as he did with the first film). He's co-written the script as well with Justin Theroux.
The strong box office returns for Dumb And Dumber To are said to have greased the wheels for Zoolander 2 finally pressing ahead (and the success of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues didn't hurt either). And whilst Cruz's exact role in the film isn't confirmed, her casting indicates that Zoolander 2 is - finally - an active project.
As of today, Dumb and Dumber To - a sequel to an absurd, 20-year-old comedy - has been in theaters for less than a week and is already sitting on a box office haul of over $55 million. So when a simple, long-overdue sequel hits big, you can bet that Hollywood is paying attention, and that typically means trying to do something similar. Enter Zoolander 2. The first Zoolander isn't quite as old as Dumb and Dumber, nor did it ever gain the same kind of household recognition, but it's had a very healthy life on DVD, cable and Netflix since it came out in 2001. The comedy, about dumb male models thwarting a plot to kill a politician, has more than a few fans and Ben Stiller is hoping they'll turn out for a sequel. He's not directing this time around (that job goes to...
