Robin Williams must love playing dead presidents. Or he's just really good at it.
The actor portrayed Teddy Roosevelt in both Night at the Museum flicks, but now he's taking on Dwight Eisenhower's persona too.
Williams has been cast as the 34th president of the United States in Lee Daniels' The Butler, which is based on the true story of a butler who worked in the White House for three decades' worth of administrations.
He's not the only talented actor
Justin Bieber got in trouble with the law last week when he was pulled over for driving dangerously fast on the 101 Freeway and, as we reported over the weekend, he's not going down alone.
Before he filed a harassment complaint against an aggressive paparazzo, he made sure to call 911 to get the story straight and tell the authorities WHY he "was driving like a maniac."
In the 15-minute phone conversation (above), the pop star is pretty calm and collected while talking to several operators, who sound pretty sympathetic to his situation. He tells them the entire story about being tailed, trying to escape and getting pulled over as a result.
At the 9:23 mark, you'll hear him start to tell his side of the story. He sounds pretty angered by how the LAPD handled the situation too, as he explained:
And you thought Eyes Wide Shut was racy!
Nicole Kidman plays a sultry "trailer-trash vixen" in The Paperboy — the Cannes competition film about a journalist (Matthew McConaughey) as he investigates a death-row man's case with little brother (Zac Efron) in tow.
The Lee Daniels film, which falls under the Southern melodrama
Netflix genre category, also focuses in on the lover of the imprisoned man (John Cusack). The lover is — of course — Nicole.
And boy does she get some love in return!! Her man AND Zefron! That lucky trollop!

Minka Kelly just signed on to become Jackie Onassis in The Butler and we think she’s a FABULOUS choice to play history’s most beloved First Lady!!
Minka is always struck us as fashion forward but she’s going to need to bring back gloves, hats, and oversized glasses for this one!
We're predicting this movie might be one of 2013's best!

Act like you've never wondered what it would look like for Vanessa Hudgens and Nic Cage to star in a movie where John Cusack plays a serial killer!
Just act like it! Just try!
Ha! These are some stills from VHudge's upcoming thriller pic with the Cage and Cusack about a serial killer in Alaska, called Frozen Ground.
Here is the official synopsis:
"Frozen Ground” follows Alaskan detective Glenn Flothe (Cage) as he sets out to end the murderous rampage of Robert Hansen (Cusack), a serial killer who has gone unnoticed for 13 years. As the bodies of street girls start to add up in Anchorage, fear strikes a chord with the public. Risking his life, Detective Flothe goes on a personal manhunt to find the killer before the next body surfaces. When a seventeen year old escapee reveals key information about the case, Flothe is finally able to trail the killer. But will he catch him in time to save the next victim?
Sounds terrifying, actually. John Cusack is so lovable, it'll be heartbreaking to see him go evil!

Festival de Cannes is finally underway and there are a TON of intriguing independent films for sale.
Harvey Weinstein purchased the last two Best Picture winners (The King’s Speech and The Artist) in Cannes and you can be sure he’s on the lookout for more!!

If ANY of John Cusack's movies were to get a sequel, these are the ones we'd want to see: Say Anything, High Fidelity, and 2012 (call it 2013! Also, we're just kidding!).
Well, it turns out that we just might get lucky because both John AND Cameron Crowe have now expressed interest in doing it!
We have the clip from The View where John admits that he'd totally be down for reprising Lloyd Dobler!!
Would U want a Say Anything 2??
