Richard Gere’s extraordinary talent and remarkable career deserves to be recognized. This year his outstanding performance in “Arbitrage” has been embraced by both the critics and the public at large.

Directed by: Nicholas Jarecki
Running Time: 1 hr 40 mins
Release Date: September 14, 2012
Plot: Robert (Gere) runs a trading company and has taken a lot of risks. Now his company is desperate, but that’s nothing compared to the mess he’s gotten into with his personal life. A troubled hedge fund magnate desperate to complete the sale of his trading empire makes an error that forces him to turn to an unlikely person for help.
Who’S It For? This is an adult drama that affectively sprinkles in some soap-opera drama. It’s also one of the “really good” Gere performances.

The clip below from Sunday’s new episode of True Blood probably won’t make Alcide fans too happy…
I suppose glamouring Alcide into keeping his paws off Sookie is classic Eric. (I was glad that the Alcide-Sookie makeout scene went on as long as it did last week but was also surprised that Eric and Bill didn’t pop up sooner to interrupt it.) It also resets the sexual tension — rather than finishing what they started, Sookie could now pine for Alcide. And, I imagine, after the drama of whatever happened to Alcide at the end of last week’s episode unfolds, »

At this point in time, Jude Law seems to have found his place in the Hollywood star system. He's been cropping up in movies for over fifteen years, but he was always more of a character actor than a leading man, and when pushed into more traditional star roles, in films like "Enemy At The Gates," "Cold Mountain" and "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow," he always sat a little uncomfortably. But these days, he gets to play second fiddle in the mega-hit "Sherlock Holmes" franchise, a far more natural fit, which gives him the freedom to tackle quirkier supporting roles in films like "Contagion."
But for the right project, his leading man days aren't over, and the actor's just signed up to a very promising-sounding dark comedy, with the Hollywood Reporter bringing news that Law is now attached to "Dom Hemingway," a new film written and directed by Richard Shepard, »

Scene from “Once Upon a Time.”
The show is mostly about Ruby/Red this week, but Kathryn’s disappearance is still on the table too.
Ruby (aka Red) is intrigued by the mysterious stranger and how he drifts around, including to Nepal. Granny calls her over, which annoys her.
In Fairy Tale, Little Red gives a hunter (his name, we’ll learn, is Peter—Peter and the Wolf Peter?) a kiss, after he teasingly threatens to huff and puff and blow the house down. »
