* The actor plays Gus, the catcher in the film "For Love of the Game," which opens Friday. After Work . . .: I'd go to dinner at Nettie's or Michelangelo, a new Italian restaurant nearby in Silver Lake, and check out a show at the Actors' Gang theater. They've always got good stuff going on, but if there's nothing there, I like the Troubadour. That's my favorite place to see music, just because of the intimate feel and all the '70s-style wood.

At this dreary time of year, what could be more welcome than a smart and genial comedy that's intent on making you laugh and knows how to do it? "Walk Hard" is that film, and its gleeful skewering of American popular music in general and biopics like "Walk the Line" and "Ray" in particular understands that humor comes from loving your source material and knowing it inside out. "Walk Hard" also benefits from being written for the exceptional John C....

While most moviegoers cried alongside Woody and Buzz Lightyear this weekend, indie film fans in Los Angeles and New York went for the awkward charm of "Cyrus." The offbeat romantic comedy starring John C. Reilly, Marisa Tomei and Jonah Hill opened to a sensational $180,289 at four theaters in the country's two biggest cities. That's a virtual tie for the best limited-release opening of the year, alongside Roman Polanski's "The Ghost Writer." The first studio-financed picture from writers-directors Jay and Mark Duplass benefited from positive reviews and an aggressive marketing campaign and now appears well positioned as distributor Fox Searchlight expands it nationwide over the next four weeks.

"Terri," starring newcomer Jacob Wysocki and John C. Reilly, is a lovely lyrical ode to high school misfits and the adults they grow into. Director Azazel Jacobs and screenwriter Patrick deWitt, who shaped the script from a series of deWitt's short stories, have captured that quintessential outsider essence that infects the usual teenage suspects, but catches one of the cool kids in its net as well. That "Terri's" humor, poignancy and intimate storytelling captivated audiences at Sundance is not surprising, though nearly everything else about this very fine indie film is. Wysocki is Terri, a lumbering pudge of a guy who despite his towering size is a favorite target of those high school boys who run in packs and are both bullies and jerks.

According to John C. Reilly, star of the music-film parody "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story," opening Friday, the typical rock musician finds his sound early on in his career, then sticks to it for the rest of his life. He might make minor adjustments to keep up with the times, but his devotion to a tightly defined artistic persona never wavers. Dewey Cox, on the other hand, knows no such stylistic loyalty.

As he walks into the Tropical Cafe on Sunset Boulevard, a neighborhood hangout near his home in L.A.'s Silver Lake district that serves up Cuban sandwiches, flaky pastries and strong coffee, heads immediately turn. People see that malleable, guy-next-door face and feel they know him, but aren't sure why. Standing 6-feet-2 with bushy hair and a beard to match, 34-year-old actor John C.

If it's a Funny or Die movie, where's the "die" button? Because watching "Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie," which arrives under the production banner of the popular comedy video website, makes you want to exercise the freedom to click that reject (eject?) button and consign the movie forever to the Funny or Die crypt, right next to "Pandas Teach You How to Dougie" and "Whoopi Farts on 'The View.'" Cult comedy team Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim take the mechanics of the Funny or Die website and stretch it past the breaking point with their movie, which revolves around an astronomically budgeted flick, a love story starring Johnny Depp (or would have, if the Hollywood producers Heidecker and Wareheim play had bothered to contact him)

It's a dog-eat-dog world in "Carnage," Roman Polanski's film about a playground brawl between two boys that mutates into a psychological knock-down between two sets of parents. In one corner are Penelope (Jodie Foster), a high-minded liberal writer, and her husband, Michael (John C. Reilly), a seemingly easygoing housewares wholesaler. In the other are Nancy (Kate Winslet), a high-strung investment broker, and Alan (Christoph Waltz), a corporate lawyer noisily preoccupied with taking his clients' cellphone calls.

Following the screening of the new film "Terri" at the Los Angeles Film Festival last week, the cast and crew mingled with the audience as viewers made their way toward the exit. Jacob Wysocki, the 21-year-old newcomer who plays the title character, politely stepped aside so a fan could take a photo with his Academy Award-nominated costar John C. Reilly. It was a small gesture that spoke volumes, the sort of moment that could play out in the film itself. Directed by Azazel Jacobs, "Terri" stars Wysocki as an awkward adolescent tasked with caring for an uncle (Creed Bratton from "The Office")
