Ga Ga: Maya Rudolph Gets Her Starring Chance with John Krasinski in Dave Eggers Flick Away We Go

awaywego-maya-rudolph-johnkrasinski Former Saturday Night Live star Maya Rudolph is finally getting her first starring role in a major movie in the dramedy Away We Go (opening Friday). Starring opposite The Office hottie John Krasinski, Rudolph (who is expecting her second kid with director Paul Thomas Anderson) plays Verona, a mom-to-be traveling across country to find the perfect place to raise her baby. "I heard that it was written with me in mind, but I didn't know Dave and Vendela, so I couldn't ask them," she says of the film written by authors Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida and directed by Oscar winner Sam Mendes (he's married to Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet). "It was pretty thrilling to see that these two incredible writers wrote this beautiful thing with you in mind," she added.

Ga Ga: The Official Trailer for Precious (aka Push) Creates Oscar Buzz

The trailer for Precious which made waves at Sundance is creating Oscar buzz for Mo'Nique in her first dramatic role. The film, which is an adaptation of Sapphire's beloved novel Push, changed its title to avoid conflict with the Dakota Fanning sci-fi flick. The drama is about a teen girl (played by Gabourey Sidibe) wrestling with pregnancy, poverty, and an abusive mother (Mo'Nique). We can't wait for the flick (which also stars Mariah Carey and Paula Patton) to hit theaters!

Ga Ga: Scene Stealers Aaron Yoo and Jessalyn Wanlim Take the Lead in The Good Guy at TriBeCa Film Festival

jessalyn-wanlim-the-goodguyaaron-yoo-the-goodguy The screening of the romantic dramedy The Good Guy at the TriBeCa Film Festival naturally had Blindie all giddy with Gilmore Girls star Alexis Bledel and Friday Night Lights' Scott Porter in lead roles. But we left the theater impressed by Aaron Yoo and Jessalyn Wanlim, who, as best friends of both lead characters, made us crack up. Wanlim, who played Bledel's bestie and coworker Jordan, deadpanned during a hilarious waxing scene on why their other girlfriend didn't tag along for a team waxing: "Because she didn't want to get her vagina ripped off!" While Yoo, who's a familiar face from Disturbia with Shia LaBeouf and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, goes against type with slick-back douchey Wall Street boy hair and tailored suits. As Steve-O, the up for anything financial party boy, he takes back tequila shots, unsuccessfully hits on blondes ("Since it looks like I'm not f--king her...Good luck!") and calling his darts team "Blasian" because he's teamed with a black Brit. We're looking forward to seeing more from these two actors in the future. thegoodguy-alexisbledel-scottporter

Star Trek‘s Zoe Saldana Talks Fashion, Dancing & the Dominican Republic in In Style Fashion Spread

zoe-saldana-star-trek-instyle-april2009-scan1 Star Trek beauty Zoe Saldana posed for a high-flying circus spread in the April issue of In Style (coincidentally their "color issue" ha!), where she discussed how growing up in New York and the Dominican Republic influenced her style. "I learned to embrace color, drama and flair," the actress, who plays Lieutenant Uhura in J. J. Abrams's much-anticipated prequel, said. "It's my nostalgia for a very important time in my life." Saldana also revealed her dancing roots (she got her start as a broke Off-Broadway dancer; and remember Center Stage?): "I got so much out of being a dancer. The stillness of it. The discipline. The dedication." "Clothes can send a powerful message," Saldana added. "You don't have to be on a movie set to tell a story. You can play a part on the red carpet or at a photo shoot." zoe-saldana-star-trek-instyle-april2009-scans
