True Detective Season 2. They’re still looking for the female lead. I thought Elisabeth Moss had this locked up but then there were reports last week that Rachel McAdams was being considered and last night The Wrap reported that there are actually 7 other actresses who’ve been added to the list and going in for auditions in the next few days. Full Story

Keira Knightley, one of the most interesting stars of the year. She charmed up a storm in Begin Again, and will soon chase her second Oscar nomination for the over-hyped The Imitation Game, but makes her biggest star turn as an American twentysomething in crisis in Laggies. Knightley's Megan feels like a prisoner in her own life. Full Story

Over-medicated, "bitchy," and sans-makeup: it's Jennifer Aniston like you've never seen her before. In Cake, Aniston plays Claire, a wealthy L.A. woman struggling with the loss of her son. She soon joins a chronic pain support group, and becomes obsessed with the suicide of a cheery woman named Nina (Anna Kendrick), and the life she left behind. Full Story

I actually emailed Lainey about Playing It Cool (formerly known as A Many Splintered Thing) a few months ago when the official synopsis came out, because this is one of the most amazing synopses I’ve seen in recent memory. Here it is: “The story of a young man disillusioned by love who meets a breathtaking young woman at a charity dinner by pretending to be a philanthropist. Full Story

Remember Ryan Reynolds, the movie star? The star of The Green Lantern, R.I.P.D., and The Change Up? What about Buried and Adventureland? Torn between his cash-in commercial gambits and his independent spirits, Reynolds' rocky road to the top of the A-list continues in The Voices, the ultimate B-movie. Full Story

In the eyes of his "Cumberbitches" online, Benedict Cumberbatch is a hero. In The Imitation Game, he cracks the code of his hype and fandom, and finally gets to play one. How? It's elementary. As WWII codebreaker Alan Turing, Cumberbatch is a mathematical genius who also happens to be a pompous, socially awkward outcast. Full Story

The weather was stupid again in Toronto last night. It was pouring, it was windy. Kind of a bitch to be dealing with when you have to walk a red carpet. But first…the pre-party. I interviewed Keira Knightly at the Moet + Chandon cocktail for Laggies at Michael’s on Simcoe before she headed over to Roy Thomson Hall for the premiere. Full Story

Xavier Dolan's duelling enfant terrible and wunderkind personas have become his trademark, often overshadowing his immense talent. Remember, this 25-year-old won the Cannes Jury Prize for his fifth film, Mommy, in May, but barely eight months earlier, he bit back at an unflattering review in The Hollywood Reporter, tweeting, "kiss my narcissistic ass. Full Story
