Actors take jobs. Benedict Cumberbatch is an actor, and he’s just taken a job portraying the tiger Shere Khan in Andy Serkis’s Jungle Book (not to be confused with Jon Favreau’s Jungle Book). If all you care about is that Benedict Cumberbatch’s voice will be coming out of a tiger’s mouth, then great, this is your money shot, stop reading. Full Story

Henry Cavill was photographed yesterday in Detroit on the set of Batfleck yesterday wearing his Superman costume underneath a black robe. The money shot, of course, is going to be when we finally get to see him and Ben Affleck’s Batman together. This hasn’t happened yet and Comic-Con doesn’t count. Full Story

Ben Affleck was home in LA for the weekend, his birthday weekend. He turned 42 on Friday and has been back and forth from Detroit where he’s shooting Batfleck. Yesterday he and Jennifer Garner were out running errands in his favourite car. Does it seem like this car always needs gas? Like every time he drives it? We have a long while to wait before Batfleck. Full Story

Jake Gyllenhaal was photographed in New York on Sunday with a friend. He’s been shooting Southpaw this summer, plays a boxer. Presumably that’s why he’s doing his walk and box. Hey so we were talking earlier about whether or not Leonardo DiCaprio cleans up nice anymore – probably not ever. Full Story

It’s Ben Affleck’s birthday. And oh look! New shots of Joey Lauren Adams out for dinner last night in a great jumpsuit. What is your favourite Ben Affleck movie? Mine might be Chasing Amy. I know we’re supposed to say Good Will Hunting and, for sure, he wrote it with Matt Damon, but as unfair as this is to say, I don’t think of it as a Ben Affleck movie. Full Story

As Sarah just wrote in the Chris Evans article before this, it’s time to solicit favour with the awards boards now. And, well, they say it’s never hard to solicit favour with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. They nominated The Tourist and Jennifer Love Hewitt for Christ’s sake. Full Story

It’s Friday, it’s been a pretty sh*tty week all around, and we could all use something nice to look at as we zone out for the weekend. So here are new photos of Beardy Chris Evans, making his return after Avengers: Age of Ultron has wrapped. I don’t generally do facial hair, but Evans is one of those guys who somehow manages to be even better looking with a beard. Full Story

Gwyneth Paltrow was photographed in the Hamptons yesterday looking ready for or coming from the beach with friends. Where’s the boyfriend? The boyfriend is supposedly Brad Falchuk, producer of both Glee and American Horror Story. And they’re apparently officially dating now that both are properly uncoupled. Full Story

Let’s check in with Michael Bay, who’s had a big summer with two awful movies performing mediocrely at the domestic box office, only to skate to success on the back of an expanding Chinese market hungry for any output at all! Hey Michael! How’s it going, buddy? Been a good summer for you—somehow despite making two terrible movies no one likes you’ve made money! Michael Bay: [finger guns] Pew pew! That’s good to hear. Full Story

The wedding dress, the veil, Amy’s smile, that people-pleasing, ideal young wife smile… And Ben. Full Story

PEOPLE posted an article yesterday about Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux. They’re on holiday in Bora Bora. They left on August 7 and were supposed to be away for a week. So it was timed for when they got back. According to US Weekly – and they reported it first – the two were at the Four Seasons. Full Story

MGM had previously announced their intention to remake Ben-Hur, the classic Charlton Heston chariot race epic, but nothing about the project inspired confidence. They’ve put Timur Bekmambetov, director of such fine films as Wanted and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, in charge and they’ve already dated it for a February 2016 release. Full Story

The Tourist 2: Mortdecai

After Johnny Depp’s Mortdecai got kicked to February 2015,  it was clear that it was not going to be a good movie. But just how not-good it will be was a mystery, at least until yesterday when the first trailer was released. We now have some idea of how not-good Mortdecai will be and the answer is “very, very, VERY not-good”. Full Story

Jackie Chan was in London yesterday promoting his film Chinese Zodiac. Look at him. I have been looking at him, watching him, since I was probably 2 years old. I’m 40 now. HE’S EXACTLY THE SAME. Ginseng > Botox. Maybe some snake blood too. He only takes one day off a year. Full Story
