Charlie Hunnam, 22, is trying to adjust to celebrity. "We were on location making 'Nicholas Nickleby' in Yorkshire for two weeks, and I have this issue with my privacy and people going through my stuff. So we check into this hotel, and the next day, I'm going off to work, and I put all my stuff in my bag and I shove the bag under the desk.

While making the 1997 movie "Los Locos," Jean-Marc Vallée was befriended by a Down syndrome actor who was an extra in the production. "I had a special relationship with him," the French-Canadian director ("The Young Victoria") recalled. "Every time on the set he was coming to me. I was like his hero. He was very welcoming every day. I had a very nice connection. " Actor-turned-filmmaker Travis Fine was a regular on the ABC 1989-92 western series "The Young Riders," when he met Chris Burke, the Down syndrome star of the acclaimed drama "Life Goes On," which was also on the network at the time.

The switch hasn't been flipped yet: Ira Sachs' “Keep the Lights On” earned two top prizes at the Outfest film festival in Los Angeles. The relationship drama, which was recently picked up for theatrical distribution by Music Box Films, received the festival's grand jury award for U.S. dramatic feature film and the jury's screenwriting award for script, which was penned by Sachs and Mauricio Zacharias. The film, about two men who struggle through love, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January.

While James Franco gears up to enchant us in "Oz the Great and Powerful," his younger brother Dave continues to work his own magic on girlfriend Alison Brie.  The "Mad Men" actress has been seeing Dave since late May (after he ended this relationship), and clearly the pair has kept the heat throughout the summer. Spotted on Saturday at the Thompson Hotel in Beverly Hills, Alison and Dave -- whom everyone referred to as "Davey" (is that what we're doing now?) -- rolled together to the birthday party of actress Danielle Panabaker.

It is entirely possible that a movie more unpleasant than "Plunkett & Macleane" will open in the roughly three months prior to the year 2000, but you wouldn't want to put money on it. Working Title Films, the generally sane British production company behind "My Beautiful Laundrette," "Four Weddings and a Funeral" and "Dead Man Walking," has obviously banked a lot of sterling on this dark, noisy and nasty tale of debauchery in 18th century England.

Poor Marilyn Monroe. She's barely survived with her dignity intact from some made-for-TV bilge about the Kennedy wives, and she's back for an encore caricature in less than a week's time. Icons never get a day off. There are a number of '60s icons that pop up in "Company Man," including the omnipresent John F. Kennedy, Fidel Castro and, most happily, Woody Allen.

Animation continues to be television's most promising venue for cutting-edge comedy. More evidence comes in NBC's funny "God, the Devil and Bob," which finds a Detroit auto worker at the center of a tug of war between the Almighty and the Prince of Darkness. He's family man Bob Alman (voiced by French Stewart of NBC's "3rd Rock From the Sun"), whose wife (voiced by Laurie Metcalf) is out of the loop regarding this contest for control of her husband.
