Playing a scarily spot-on Andy Warhol in "I Shot Andy Warhol" was a blessing and a curse for Jared Harris. It got him noticed, but no one saw the real him behind the wig, glasses and accent. Now, though, at 36, the London-raised son of actor Richard Harris has two breakout roles: a pivotal part in "Lost in Space" and the co-lead in "B. Monkey," director Michael Radford's first film since "Il Postino," coming May 8.

Depending on your viewpoint, the horror film "The Quiet Ones" is either about a 1970s band of fearless experimenters (led by Jared Harris) who come face to face with paranormal evil, or about a mentally ill foster child (Olivia Cooke) held in captivity by cruel, smirking researchers in the English countryside. Mostly, though, it's a junky, unscary genre piece with a misleading title, because director and co-writer John Pogue jacks up the decibels so often to manufacture frights that you fear a punctured eardrum more than anything else.

Being the son of Richard Harris hasn't really opened any doors for actor Jared Harris, who has a tiny part as a British soldier in "The Last of the Mohicans" and plays a nightclub bouncer in the Joe Pesci-Barbara Hershey film "The Public Eye." "In England, my only experience (with nepotism) really was when my father did Pirandello's 'Henry IV,' " Harris recalls. "For about four months, every job I went on (involved applying to) somebody he had fired. So in that sense, it wasn't a great help."

Linda Cardellini, who plays Don Draper's onetime lover Sylvia Rosen on "Mad Men," is engaged to Steven Rodriguez, the father of her child. The "ER" and "Freaks and Geeks" alum, 37, shared the happy news on "The View" Friday, saying that she and Rodriguez, whom she has been friends with since age 10, got engaged the day before in New York City. "I was surprised that it was happening at that moment, yes," she said on the show. "We were actually with some of the people I love most: my sister, and my cousins and one of my best friends Maura [Tierney]

On AMC's "Mad Men" Sunday night, Jared Harris made his second exit from a television series this season. The first, a few weeks back, was from Fox's "Fringe,"where his David Robert Jones -- suddenly revealed to be not the brainy mastermind behind the show's collapsing universes but only a pawn (or a bishop, according to the script) in William Bell's (Leonard Nimoy) twisted game -- literally crumbled to dust on a Boston rooftop. His departure from "Mad Men" was not exactly a surprise, given his character's season-long struggle to get out from under a financial misjudgment and ethical blooper; certainly, from the time Don Draper required Lane Pryce's resignation for forging his signature on a check, his fate was all but a fait accompli.

The signature action scene in the soon-to-be-released "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows," unfolds in a fusillade in a forest, as high-speed cameras zooming at 70 mph capture ammunition ripping through trees and flesh in real time. It's the type of mayhem, initially so intense that the film faced an R rating, that you would find only in a movie directed by Guy Ritchie. Until two years ago, Ritchie was known only to a select cinema buff crowd for his stylish, low-budget British gangster movies -- "Snatch," "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels," "Revolver" and "RockNRolla.

The return of John Carpenter to feature filmmaking after a 10-year absence should be cause for shivery rejoicing, but "The Ward" is bland shock therapy from the guy who reinvented bloody peek-a-boo with the classic "Halloween. " All the elements seemed to be in place for another one of his claustrophobically sublime and ridiculous portraits of siege mentality, a la "Assault on Precinct 13" and "The Thing. " But this '60s-era tale set in a Victorian-designed mental institution — in which young Tippi Hedren-blond amnesiac Kristen (Amber Heard)

Since Adrien Brody took off for Europe in the summer of 2001 to begin work on "The Pianist" a day after completing "Dummy," it seems safe to say that the Oscar the Roman Polanski film brought him had a lot to do with today's at-long-last release of the earlier film. If that is the case, then all the more power to the Oscar, for writer-director Greg Pritikin's small-scale debut feature is a romantic comedy of considerable charm and humor.

In the title role of Michael Almereyda's "Nadja," an elegant, witty but also sometimes tedious spin on the legend of Dracula, Elina Lowensohn is a black-caped beauty with a bold Frida Kahlo face. A rich, restless denizen of Manhattan's night life, she admits that it's "hard not to think of everything as superficial." She soon believes she has reason to hope that things will change, for this film's Dr.
