One of the defining collaborations of Philip Seymour Hoffman's career was his long association with New York's Labyrinth Theater Company, which he helped to found and where he served as an artistic director for many years. A new fundraising campaign, organized in part by actor Edward Norton, was launched earlier this week in Hoffman's memory that is intended to benefit the Labyrinth. The Crowdrise campaign has so far raised nearly $12,000 for the company. "All donations made here by admirers or friends will go to support the Labyrinth in celebration of Phil's great talent, his enormous contributions and his spirit," says the campaign.

Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" may be hitting theaters after awards season ends, but the film has landed a different kind of honor: It will open the 2014 Berlin International Film Festival. The Fox Searchlight film will kick off the European event next February, a few weeks before its theatrical debut in the U.S. on March 7. Anderson's last picture, "Moonrise Kingdom," launched at the Cannes Film Festival in 2012, but both his " The Royal Tenenbaums " and " The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou " have played in competition at Berlin in years past.

Did you feel sad when the Miley Cyrus -hosted episode of "Saturday Night Live" ended a few weeks ago, knowing that you probably wouldn't get to see the singer twerk or stick her tongue out on the show for another season? Well, Christmas came early for you last night, as Cyrus made two appearances on Edward Norton's episode, one in the monologue, where she stuck out her tongue, and another in a sketch about a freed slave where she, of course, twerked. Standard Miley fare.

It's hard to say exactly what skills are needed to become an expert at the game of Egg Russian Roulette, but it's safe to say that Edward Norton has them. The actor, who's hosting "Saturday Night Live" this week, stopped by "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" to talk about the gig, praise fellow guests Pearl Jam and play an infinitely silly game of Egg Russian Roulette. As Norton himself described it, "It's like Willy Wonka meets 'The Deer Hunter' torture. " The game, as introduced by announcer Steve Higgins in an over-the-top silly voice, required Fallon and Norton to select eggs from a standard carton of a dozen and smash them on their heads.

"There was never just one. " That advertising tag line for "The Bourne Legacy"has an almost apologetic ring to it, as if making a Bourne film without Matt Damon - the star of the first three and the epitome of the empathetic killing machine that is Jason Bourne - was a brash and risky move. As it turns out, no one needed to worry, because few films have less to apologize for than this one. Complex, unexpected and dazzling, alternating relentless tension with resonant emotional moments, this is an exemplary espionage thriller that has a strong sense of what it wants to accomplish and how best to get there.
