Diaz Cast In Coen Film

Exciting!

Cameron Diaz's winning smile has been reportedly cast in the Coen Brothers' next movie, a remake of the 1966 movie Gambit. Not only that, but she'll be starring with that ADORBS Brit Colin Firth!

Diaz will be taking the role originally played by Shirley MacLaine, and Firth will be stepping into Michael Caine's shoes.

Here's a brief synopsis:
"Firth plays a London art curator who plans to con a wealthy collector into buying a phony Monet painting. He enlists a Texas steer roper (Diaz) to pose as a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting at the end of WWII."

The Coen Brothers are fantastic directors, directing two fantastic actors!!

We can't wait to see how this turns out!

What do U think about the casting of Cam Diaz??

Christopher Nolan Is Snubbed By The Academy Awards AGAIN!

Understandable! If we were to give one complaint about the nominations, this would definitely be it!

Out of all the just-announced Academy Award nominations, it seems that the most backlash seems to be coming from Inception director Christopher Nolan's omission from the category of 'Best Director!'

While he was on the list of nominees - alongside Darren Aronofsky, David Fincher, David O. Russell, and Tom Hooper - for the 2011 Directors Guild of America, he is the ONLY one who didn't pick up an Academy Award nomination, instead being replaced by Joel and Ethan Coen!

And this is the THIRD time it's happened - he was previously nominated by the DGA for Memento and The Dark Knight, but snubbed when the Oscar nominations came around!

What gives?!

We think that given the consistently innovative and original material he produces, he deserves his name on that list! It's more than about time, guys!

Thoughts??
