It’s mid-October, which means that award season is in full swing, and as such the actors starring in award bait are beginning to lay the foundation of their Oscar campaigns. We’re still over a month away from Benedict Cumberbatch’s The Imitation Game opening in the US, but he’s got a profile in Out in support of the film. Full Story

Got yelled at by several Brangelunatics the last few days for not posting about Angelina Jolie getting honourary damed by the Queen on Friday. Because I had laser eye surgery and then it was Thanksgiving in Canada. So that's a lesson for you all: nothing is more important than Brange - not your vision, not family, not holiday. Full Story

Shia LaBeouf. I mean, it’s Shia LaBeouf. You can describe him in all kinds of ways – most of them negative: troubled child star, plagiarist, stunt queen, belligerent, a very bad drunk, etc, etc, etc. He’s also a good actor. And an entertainer. That’s the quality that got him discovered, and I’ve always said this about Shia LaBeouf – he’s watchable, when he’s right it’s the right kind of charisma; he has It. Full Story

RDJ has been talking up a potential extension of his contract to play Iron Man, and everyone jumped on the Iron Man 4 grenade, because he made some wiseass comments about Iron Man 4. I didn’t buy that he was in talks for another Iron Man installment, but that he could be extending his deal to make room for a fourth Avengers movie. Full Story

Even George Clooney has one. You remember his aunt Starla? The Rogue Relative? Aunt Starla told the Daily Mail that Brad Pitt would probably be his best man and, as I wrote at the time, Aunt Starla didn’t know sh-t. Click here for a refresher. Full Story

The Chicago International Film Festival kicked off last night, and over the next couple weeks I’ll be reviewing some festival season stragglers, beginning with the opening night film, Miss Julie, which blew chunks. But first we need to talk about Colin Farrell, who was on hand along with writer/director Liv Ullmann to introduce the film. Full Story

The Imitation Game opened the London Film Festival the other night and Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley showed up looking all kinds of glamorous. Cumberbatch is at his best in Sherlock drag, but the suit porn is good, too, and this is some prime suit porn. If Cumberbatch is your flavor, then you’ll enjoy these photos as they’re like the double-chocolate malt equivalent of The Batch. Full Story

Which is, honestly, more interesting to me than his wedding. New York Comic Con is underway, and while it isn’t as important from an industry perspective as San Diego Comic-Con, it is rising in prominence thanks to some high-profile projects that have eschewed Hall H for New York’s west side. Full Story

Too easy. And besides, the only commentary that will matter on these photos will be Michael K’s of Dlisted.com so I’ll just give you the straight description direct from the photo agency: “John Travolta shows his dedication to his craft as he films night scenes for his new movie Life on the Line on October 7, 2014 in Vancouver, Canada. Full Story

Somewhere between bulking up with The Rock and running away from giant (extinct) Hasbro toys, Mark Wahlberg lost 60 pounds. Did you notice? He wanted you to notice. In a new interview with USA Today Full Story

Mae Whitman stars in The Duff, an upcoming movie for which you need to know two pertinent pieces of information:  first, it’s based on a book written by an author, Kody Keplinger, who was 17 at the time of publication; second, and the one you’ll hear most about, is that “Duff” stands for “Designated Ugly Fat Friend”. Full Story

Okay, now that we’ve talked about the Marvel can of worms RDJ has opened up, let’s move on to how delightful RDJ is in general, which is SO DELIGHTFUL. First, there’s his appearance on The Howard Stern Show in which he talked about Sarah Jessica Parker. Stern is pushing, trying to get RDJ to say something click-baity about SJP, but RDJ (if only they stayed together for the combined acronyms!) is too smooth to get suckered. Full Story
