While his latest comedy effort, Seven Psychopaths, collects plenty of praise at the Toronto International Film Festival, Sam Rockwell is gearing up for his next role, opposite Marisa Tomei in the low-budget laffer Why Now. Last summer, the Oscar-winning actress reminded audiences what a sharp sense of humor she has, deftly playing a oversexed schoolteacher in Glenn Ficarra and John Requa's wild ensemble comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love. But while she's stolen scenes in funny flicks from Slums of Beverly Hills to What Women Want and Cyrus, she hasn't fronted a comedy since Happy Accidents in 2000. But paired with the ever-incredible Rockwell, the talented actress who has proved a solid match to John C. Reilly, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Joe Pesci seems sure to deliver a cutting and satisfyingly funny performance. Screen Daily offers a few details on the project; sadly none of them include a plotline. We do know »

After my love letter to Noah Taylor I thought it might be kind of fun to write to some people for The Film Experience and ask Them who they'd want to write a love letter to. Hopefully this is making some kind of sense. So I made a little dream list of people I respect and admire beyond all reason and I sent them a little e-mail saying:
I've seen you do work that has made me want to write you a love letter because it's moved me so deeply. Who or what would you like to write a love letter to? What piece of art or artist or feeling has moved you in this way?"
Here are a few amazing responses I got from these talented and passionate individuals!

The waiter at the East Village coffee shop smiles shyly at Natasha Lyonne before walking away. “Did you see that?” Lyonne asks. “I’m totally going to f—ing hit that later. I mean, I’m not… It’s just knowing that he wants it makes me want him.” She grins. “But I know that’s just low self-esteem.”
Lyonne’s anxiety today is understandable, because she doesn’t speak much to journalists these days. »

It’s been a tough road for Natasha Lyonne. Throughout the late ‘90s, the big-eyed, frizzy-haired actress made a name for herself playing tough-yet-vulnerable young women in both noted indie fair (But I’m a Cheerleader, Slums of Beverly Hills) and mainstream hits (American Pie). Her promising career took a nosedive, however, after a public battle with substance abuse, tussles with the law, and multiple health problems left her a has-been before she turned 25.
Now, after a decade of obscurity, the 32-year-old actress is slowly making a comeback. She recently appeared on the hit show New Girl, rejoined her fellow American Pie alums for the franchise’s latest – and, hopefully, final – sequel, the soon-to-be-released American Reunion, and will be seen with Kristen Wiig when Imogene hits later this year. And the work just keeps coming.
