Ever since HBO's gritty prison drama "Oz," we've been big fans of Kirk Acevedo; and it's good to see the actor getting some high profile roles lately, including a stint on this season of "The Walking Dead." Next up for Kirk? He's heading to Syfy!

Jennifer Lawrence is on fire this year, no two ways about it. She kicked things off by picking up her Oscar for her leading performance in Silver Linings Playbook; she’s just topped box offices around the world in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire; and she’ll soon be seen in the hotly anticipated American Hustle, which reunites her with Playbook’s David O. Russell.
Lawrence is just one fifth of the very impressive leading quintet, starring alongside Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, and Jeremy Renner. And with the film’s December release date approaching, Sony has released another great clip in anticipation of its arrival.
A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock the States, American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney »

Last week, we shared an enlightening roundtable video interview with the directors of some of this year’s awards contenders like Alfonso Cuaron, David O. Russell, and Steve McQueen. Today, THR has released a new roundtable interview this time focusing on producers, as Mark Wahlberg (Lone Survivor), David Heyman (Gravity), Dede Gardner (12 Years a Slave, World War Z), Michael De Luca (Captain Phillips), Charles Roven (American Hustle, Man of Steel), and Pam Williams (Lee Daniels’ The Butler) sat down for 50-minute discussion on all things moviemaking. The conversation covers a lot of ground, touching on why Wahlberg almost fired his agent over Fifty Shades of Grey, Roven showing Heath Ledger the IMAX prologue for The Dark Knight, Entourage salary disputes, horrible test scores for Boogie Nights, and so much more.

The Hollywood Reporter has released their latest Oscar season roundtable video and this time the producers are front and center and among the participants you have Michael De Luca (Captain Phillips, Fifty Shades of Grey), David Heyman (Gravity), Charles Roven (American Hustle, Man of Steel), Pam Williams (Lee Daniels' The Butler) and Dede Gardner (12 Years a Slave, World War Z). Obviously one of the topics is money and they also get into the role of a producer right off the bat, but I found it interesting when Michael De Luca started discussing the casting process for Fifty Shades of Grey and fan reactions and their expectations for the character. He admits to being on Twitter and interacting with fans, but in the end says of the book by E.L. James that she had written a fantasy and no man could ever fulfill the image the fans had in their minds. »
