Deadline (I) (2012)
Deadline confirms that the actress has joined "Fury Road" where she'll be hanging out with Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and fellow supermodel Abby Lee Kershaw on the franchise reboot/sequel/continuation/whatever. Exact plot details are still under wraps, but the film has been said to be the start of a potential new trilogy. Huntington-Whitely will be taking a role alongside Kershaw as one of the Five Wives, a convoy of women who are apparently being chased by the bad guys in the movie before Bronson/Bane presumably steps in to save the day.

Best Mocking: The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart took The Last Word’s Lawrence O’Donnell (whose broadcast is feeling more and more like Nancy Grace’s… and that ain’t a good thing) to task for his overheated grilling of an empty chair in which Trayvon Martin’s attorney was supposed to be sitting.
The Hope-For-The-Future Award Goes To…: Community, whose ratings since returning are stronger despite stiff competition. Please, NBC, don’t take Greendale away from us!
Grossest Reality Show Yet: Lifetime’s 7 Days Of Sex encourages couples who are on the brink of divorce to, as the title suggests, have sex every night for a week. Wonder if they stipulate that it has to be with one another?
Okay, actually, it is a coincidence, because as far as anybody knows, the two young stars aren't actually related (sorry, Hollywood genealogy buffs). But now they're going to be linked in a professional sense at least, as Emma Roberts reunites with her "Lymelife" director Derick Martini for what is described as a film about "two brothers, wildly different, who discover their parents have been hiding a startling and life-altering secret from them for over two decades."
Of course, we're pretty sure Emma won't be playing one of those brothers, but we have the perfect idea for who should play the parents: Julia Roberts and Eric Roberts.
Hey, if you've got a good theme going,
So let's step back for a moment for Lovelace, which has also announced some new cast members. Deadline reports that Demi Moore, Eric Roberts and Adam Brody have all joined the cast.

According to Deadline, Lovelace has recently added Eric Roberts as lie detector expert Nat Laurendi, Adam Brody as Deep Throat co-star Harry Reems, and Demi Moore as feminist icon Gloria Steinem (I can't wait to see that).
Of the two competing films about the ill-fated 1970s porn star, Lovelace boasts the more impressive cast. Besides Seyfried as the title character and the new big names, the film also features Hank Azaria as Deep Throat director Gerard Damiano, James Franco as Hugh Hefner and Peter Sarsgaard as Lovelace's abusive first husband, Chuck Traynor.
Also aboard this off-color trip to the '70s are Wes Bentley, Sharon Stone, Robert Patrick, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth and Juno Temple.
Sevigny has been cast as the lead in Hit and Miss, a provocative new six-episode British series by Shameless creator Paul Abbott, Deadline reports. The actress will play Mia, a transgender contract killer who discovers that in a previous life he fathered several children.
