It's no easy task casting the role of an iconic star for a biopic, but we think this choice might be pretty inspired. We learned last week that a biopic on the life of comedic actor John Belushi is in the works, with Emile Hirsch, Joaquin Phoenix and 'Girls' star Adam Driver's names being tossed around. And today we've gotten confirmation that Hirsch has been chosen to take the lead in the upcoming unnamed biopic from writer and director Steven Conrad.
The final trailer for 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' debuted tonight during the fourth game of the MLB World Series, and it's pretty awesome. In the upcoming sequel, as Donald Sutherland's President Snow teases in voice over, Katniss will go from playing mere games to full-out war when she and Peeta are targeted to compete in a new and deadly tournament.

Though it was recently reported that 'Django Unchained' star Christoph Waltz would not be starring in the upcoming sequel, we are pleased to share the news that 'Horrible Bosses 2' has managed to hire Waltz after all. Waltz will be playing a bad guy -- of course -- alongside Chris Pine, who will play his son in one of the most inspired casting choices in recent memory.
Marcia Wallace, whom many know best as the voice of Mrs. Edna Krabappel on the long-running Fox animated series 'The Simpsons,' has passed away at the age of 70. Wallace, who was also starred on the classic sitcom 'The Bob Newhart Show,' died just one week before her 71st birthday due to complications from breast cancer.
The first trailer will be online tomorrow afternoon (UPDATE: check out a :10 second teaser below), but we've got a couple of new 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' photos from the upcoming Marvel film to hold you over until then. Cap has a brand new suit to go along with his brand new movie, and he's still putting down the bad guys, as evidenced by one particularly awesome new still.
Lou Scheimer, the founder of animation studio Filmation and the producer of Saturday morning cartoon classics such as 'Fat Albert,' 'He-Man,' and 'Superman,' has passed away at the age of 84. Scheimer leaves behind a legacy of exciting Saturday morning entertainment for children that's been passed on and revitalized from generation to generation.
Zack Snyder did some filming on Saturday night in L.A. for 'Batman vs. Superman,' which is what Warner Bros. themselves referred to as the title. The filming took place at a football game, set up at Weingart Stadium, which serves as the set of the Gotham City University home stadium. The Gotham City team, in black and gold, was playing against the Metropolis State University team, in red and white. If we've learned anything from 'The Dark Knight Rises,' no football game is safe as long as Batman is around.
Everyone remembers the scene in 'Big' when Tom Hanks plays "Chopsticks" on the novelty piano with just his feet. Hanks recently appeared on 'The Jonathan Ross Show' to relive the magic with the host, but then we got a special surprise: Sandra Bullock, who was on hand to promote 'Gravity,' joined in the fun. And even more impressive: Bullock can play "Chopsticks" in high heels!
