Yesterday, we featured the opening to the MTV Movie Awards, not because we care about who the golden popcorn goes to, but because it showcased host Conan O'Brien fitting no less than 50 celebrity cameos into the beginning of the show. Now that the show is over, Conan is back to his normal hosting duties on his own late night talk show on TBS. But he had some time to reminisce about his weekend hosting gig, and even took the time to reveal some of his preparation behind the scenes, mostly his hair styling inspired by the remarkable comb-over donned by Christian Bale in last year's Best Picture nominee American Hustle. Here's Conan O'Brien preparing for the MTV Movie Awards from Team Coco: American Hustle is directed by David O. Russell (Flirting with Disaster, Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees, The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook), working from a script he co-wrote with The International writer Eric Singer. »

Jennifer Lawrence has multiple MTV Movie Award nominations for the third year in a row. Of her previous bids, she won twice in 2012 (Female Performance and Fight for "The Hunger Games") and twice more in 2013 (Female Performance and Kiss for "Silver Linings Playbook"). It's fitting, then, that she's predicted to win twice more this year based on our racetrack odds. -Break- Can Josh Hutcherson defeat Oscar-favorites to win Male Performance?

And now our semi-weekly check in with actresses we love. Where / What / Who are they up to?
Brie Larson has accepted an offer to star in the psychological horror drama as "Ma", about a woman who's trapped in her father's basement for years with her son. It's based on the novel by Emma Donoghue who also did the screenplay but the novel is narrated by the 5 year old child who's only ever known this one room so that one's going to be tricky to make breathe as a film. This seems a better fit for her dramatic gifts than that dumb Terminator reboot she lost out on. The actress is in demand now post Short Term 12 as well she should be. She's also got The Gambler remake and the comedy Trainwreck coming out. Room is not the only novel adaptation she's attached to. She'll probably co-star in The »

Remember when Cooper’s character, Pat, finishes the Hemingway classic A Farewell to Arms and proceeds to throw the book out the window and storm into his parents’ rooms to rant about how terrible the ending was? Well, some YouTuber discovered that his complaints also apply to the How I Met Your Mother finale.

Turns out, President Barack Obama has a loyal—and intelligent—friend in Bradley Cooper. In a new post titled "Behind the Obamacare surprise," Politico reports that the Silver Linings Playbook star played a crucial role in facilitating the Potus' appearance on the mock-interview show Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, which lead to a massive surge in Obamacare enrollment. With girlfriend Suki Waterhouse by his side, the 39-year-old actor visited the White House on Feb. 11 for a state dinner honoring President François Hollande where he met with Obama's senior adviser Valerie Jarrett to "brainstorm ideas about how to help get the word out on Obamacare," the site »
It's pretty hard to argue against the success that Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence have had together. The acting duo first came together as an odd-ball romantic pairing in David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook (a performance that won Lawrence the Best Actress Oscar at the Academy Awards), but just last year they reunited when Russell hired them to play characters on opposite sides of the same story in the period comedic thriller American Hustle. That's two films in two years, but perhaps what's most amazing is that a third is already on the way. Director Sussane Bier's dark drama Serena will once again bring Cooper and Lawrence back together on screen, and while we still don't know exactly when we will get to see the movie, at the very least today The Film Stage has delivered a while bunch of new stills. Admittedly these perhaps aren't the most »
The last thing I heard about Susanne Bier's long-awaited "Serena" is that certain parties involved didn't want the film released in 2013. I have no idea if it's a bad film or not and would have hurt the Oscar prospects of Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence in "American Hustle," but it remains quite strange that a film starring that hot a duo coming off "Silver Linings Playbook" still hasn't been released, and moreover, still hasn't landed a distributor. It's also been in post-production for a long while, however, and films can be fashioned out of trouble with the right editorial care. Just ask, well, "American Hustle." I'm a big Susanne Bier fan (she took home the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar a few years back for "In a Better World" — more awards cache for the film) and I'm intrigued by this story, set in Depression Era North Carolina and based »

After Jennifer Lawrence brought in Oscar glory for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook opposite Bradley Cooper, it made sense for the pair to collaborate again in David O. Russell’s follow-up American Hustle. It seems they’re sticking to the saying ‘If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it’, as new stills have been released of the duo performing in Susanne Bier’s (Love Is All You Need) Serena.
Adapted from the Ron Rash novel of the same name, the story follows George (Cooper) and Serena Pemberton (Lawrence), a happily married couple building up a successful timber company in 1929. Intensely in love, George and Serena will bring down anyone in their way. However, when Serena is told she cannot have children, she goes on a jealous rampage to find the woman George had a baby with before they met…with plans to kill her.

Newlyweds George (Bradley Cooper) and Serena Pemberton (Jennifer Lawrence) travel from Boston to the mountains of North Carolina where they begin to build a timber empire in 1929. Serena soon shows herself to be the equal of any man: overseeing crews, hunting rattle-snakes, even saving a man's life in the wilderness. Together, this king and queen rule their dominion, »
It's been nearly two years since we got a first look at the new drama Serena from director Susanne Bier (In a Better World). We're still not sure when the film starring Silver Linings Playbook duo Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper will arrive in theaters, but we do have some new photos from the film, showing off the period sets, not to mention Lawrence and Cooper looking rather dashing. The film follows the Pemberton couple, Boston natives who create a 1929 timber empire in North Carolina, as their intense, passionate marriage begins to unravel as the story moves toward a shocking reckoning. New photos below! New photos from Serena from production designer Richard Bridgland (more at The Film Stage): Serena is directed by Oscar-winner Susanne Bier (In a Better World, Things We Lost in the Fire) from a screenplay by Christopher Kyle (Alexander) adapting Ron Rash's novel of the same name. »

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are at it again! The two, who costarred in 2012's Silver Linings Playbook and last year's American Hustle, are taking on a Depression-era adaptation called Serena. Despite the fact that the film was actually shot before American Hustle, there is still no release date for the period story of a lumberman's wife (Lawrence) who descends into vengeful insanity. At least we have these pictures to moon over for a while! Take a look. Source: 2929 Entertainment View Slideshow › »

For the last couple of years or so, articles about Jennifer Lawrence have frequently mentioned a series of collaborations with Bradley Cooper. The co-stars started work together on David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook" and his follow-up "American Hustle," and a third movie, "Serena," which has yet to materialize. The Depression-Era drama from director Susanne Bier shot in back when "The Hunger Games" was opening in March 2012, but according to a story from The ...

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence made quite the pair in 2012′s Silver Linings Playbook, which culminated in an Oscar nomination for Cooper and a win for Lawrence. They then both starred in last year’s American Hustle, but unfortunately didn’t share even a second of screen time together. Those of us who found that disappointing will be happy to know that Lawrence and Cooper are reuniting on the big screen again, this time in a period piece from Susanne Bier called Serena.
Serena was actually filmed back in the spring of 2012, but the film has gone through a gruelling 18-month post-production process, as Beir is reportedly a perfectionist who spent a great deal of time in the editing room. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Ron Rash, and at its core is about a woman’ descent into madness. Though we have no news »

With rumours flying about a new Indiana Jones and Disney reportedly closing in on their final choices for Jj Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII, the Hollywood casting machine is operating at an even higher temperature than usual.
You'll be familiar with some of these near-misses, but others are frankly astonishing. Which rapper almost took Matt Damon's role in Elysium? Which former Friends star was the first choice to front Men in Black? And why is Leonardo DiCaprio Christian Bale's nemesis? Read on...

Pacino revealed during a Q&A session last year that the role of roguish smuggler Han Solo was "his for the taking" back in the '70s, but he turned it down because he didn't understand the script. Harrison Ford made the role iconic and ended up having his own issues with Lucas's script, famously telling the director "You can type this s**t, »
