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

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

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
