HOLLYWOOD (CAP) - Saying he has grown tired of playing people in his films, versatile actor Philip Seymour Hoffman is preparing for his most challenging roles to date by attempting to portray inanimate objects in his next three movies.
The Academy Award winner said he has long since mastered the art of pretending he was someone else and is now looking forward to pretending to be something else. As such, Hoffman will play the bank in the upcoming heist caper Money Shot starring Johnny Depp and Selena Gomez.
"I've studied the greatest lending institutions around the world and have been immersing myself in bank culture for months," Hoffman told TMZ. "By the time the cameras roll, I won't just be playing a bank - I'll be the bank."
Hoffman is also slated to play the Eiffel Tower in the Jennifer Anderson romantic comedy Croissants and a cell phone in the next Avengers movie.
HOLLYWOOD (CAP) - Star Trek: Into Darkness, the second Trek movie in the series of reboots directed by J.J. Abrams, ruled the box office over the weekend, drawing almost as huge an audience as one of George Takei's Facebook memes involving Capt. Jean-Luc Picard or a cat.
"Really, we couldn't be any happier," said Peter Franklin of Paramount Pictures of the opening weekend gross. "About the only way we could have done better is if we had made a meme involving Darth Vader or Willy Wonka or gay marriage, and George Takei had shared it."
Takei, who played Hikaru Sulu in the original Star Trek series, now spends most of his time sharing memes on Facebook that are in turn liked and shared by his over 100 million followers, usually within minutes.
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (CAP) - Even as news continues to filter out about whether and where Lindsay Lohan has checked into rehab, officials at the Morningside Recovery Center are flattered that Lindsay Lohan would fly all the way across the country just to visit them - so much so that they have decided to name a wing after the troubled actress.
"Just as we are dedicated to providing exceptional care, treatment and services to the plethora of junkies, lushes and losers who walk through our doors, it's only appropriate that we honor those who show the same dedication by coming back again and again," the center said in a prepared statement.
The newly named Lohan Adjunct is located inside Morningside's clinical building and contains half a dozen general purpose rooms perfect for impromptu meetings with one's agent, signing the first 100 copies of one's tell-all book, or discussing rights to the movie with producers.
