Excited for her role in the upcoming film "The Hunger Games," Jacqueline Emerson was spotted posing with her People magazine special feature issue in-hand on Friday (March 2).
The 17-year-old redhead plays "Foxface" in the book-turned-movie and was all smiles as she showed off her picture at a newsstand in Los Angeles, California.
Even though the film hasn't even been released yet, Miss Emerson is tweeting about how the series is already receiving nominations, as she messaged, "Just found out HungerGames is nominated for a KCA! Go vote! I might also vote for Harry Potter. No explanation necessary."

Amid hullabaloo about Angeline Jolie's leg, the high-flying exploits of Circus du Soleil, and Octavia Spencer's tearful trip to the podium was a speech that actually has some import beyond the rarified world of Tinsel Town. When Iranian director Asghar Farhadi accepted the best foreign language award for "A Separation," -- which, by the way, is a masterpiece — he inserted himself in an increasingly rancorous geo-political debate. From a hand-written note, the director said the following:
"At this time, many Iranian all over the world are watching us and I imagine them to be very happy. They are happy not just because of an important award or a film or filmmaker, but because at the time when talk of war, intimidation and aggression is exchanged between politicians, the name of their country Iran is spoken here through her glorious culture. A rich and ancient culture that has been hidden under the heavy dust of politics. I proudly offer this award to the people of my country. A people who respect all cultures and civilizations and despise hostility and resentment."
Farhadi's plea for peace is a gentle rebuke to leaders in his native Iran — President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad regularly calls for the state of Israel to be wiped off the map — and to politicians in this country like the GOP presidential hopefuls who pepper their stump speeches with saber-rattling rhetoric about Iran.

There once was a time when Eric Bana was negotiating to take the lead in heist thriller Brilliant for director Robert Luketic. That time was last October, but now things have changed and Gerard Butler will star instead.
Butler's taking the role of a small-time criminal who teams up with a female thief and some other gangsters to pull off an audacious diamond heist. We'd guess that sparks will fly between the two even as they sneak around buildings then either go on the run from the cops or there will a double cross and they'll need to ward off their former partners. That sort of thing always happens in these films.
The script is by Gillian Gorfil, who produced Blood Diamond. It's said she sleeps on a bed of diamonds at night, like a screenwriting Bond villain. All right, so no one actually says that. But they should.

With Spike Lee recently musing that he'd like to make Brooklyn Loves MJ "next", there was some speculation that his new version of Oldboy had been back-burnered. But it seems not, with the news this morning that Elizabeth Olsen is the latest actress to be offered the female lead. Maybe by "next", Lee meant after this one.
Rooney Mara and Mia Wasikowska have both been in the running, but would appear to have passed: a story that keeps recurring in the development of this project. While Josh Brolin was locked fairly quickly for the Oh Dae-su role, the film has also struggled to find a villain thus far, with Christian Bale, Clive Owen and Colin Firth all considering it and then moving on.
The female role now on the table for Olsen is sushi chef Mi-do, played in Park Chan-wook's film by Kang Hye-jeong. Lee's new version names her as Marie, according to Twitch, so there's probably reason to suspect that she won't be preparing sushi anymore either. But she'll presumably remain the love interest, who our hero Oh Dae-su / currently-unnamed-Brolin takes a shine to along the way to solving the mystery of his 15-year imprisonment. There's also the threat of her death hanging over his progress, just to spice things up. Oh, and without wishing to be spoilerific, perhaps there's more to her character than is immediately revealed...

After battling his way back onto the guest list, Sacha Baron Cohen brought his spectacle to the red carpet at the 84th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday (February 26).
The 40-year-old English comedic actor was in character as Admiral General Aladee from his new movie "The Dictator" while waltzing about the Kodak Theatre venue.
Making sure his time in the spotlight didn't go without antics, Sacha ended up dumping an urn of ashes on Ryan Seacrest - which made the "American Idol" host none too pleased.

SANTA MONICA, California (Reuters) - Silent movie romance "The Artist" on Saturday won four Independent Spirit Awards, the year's top honors among movies made outside Hollywood's major studios, including best film and director in a prelude to the Oscars.
"The Artist," a black-and-white movie from French writer and director Michel Hazanavicius, also picked up Spirit Awards for its star Jean Dujardin, who portrays an actor whose career collapses with the advent of the talkies, in the best actor category and Guillame Schiffman for cinematography.
The film's makers arrived in Los Angeles directly from Friday's Cesar honors in France, and had to be brought to the Spirit Awards from the airport with a police escort. But they shrugged off any jet lag to happily accept their awards.

It was a weekend of mixed fortunes at the American box office, with good news for both active Navy SEALs and Tyler Perry, but decidedly dodgy outcomes for both Paul Rudd and Amanda Seyfried. Starting with the positive: US audiences were clearly pumped to see real-life SEALs head out on a fictional mission to take down terrorists in action thriller/Navy recruitment video Act Of Valour.
The action movie fired a cash grenade into the charts and ended up in first place with $24.7 million. Considering that the film was made for around $12 million, co-directors Scott Waugh and Mike "Mouse" McCoy will be feeling happy (and wealthier, since they own the film outright) today.
Tyler Perry also scored, with Good Deeds coming in second for $16 million. Journey 2: The Mysterious Island jumped back up one place to third with $13.4 million. Last week's champ, Safe House, fell to fourth with $11.4 million and The Vow was fifth, earning $10 million.

As for the motion picture's synopsis, "Gone" revolves around Jill (Seyfried), who comes home from work to discover her sister has been abducted by a kidnapper whom Jill escaped from once before. She sets out to save her sister and face the abductor in a heart-pounding, edge-of-your-seat chase.
