Will Forte is the kind of person who's going to find something to be anxious about no matter the circumstances. So when the former "Saturday Night Live" cast member found himself unexpectedly cast in Alexander Payne's new seriocomic road-trip movie, "Nebraska," he felt all the natural emotions - excitement, gratitude, disbelief. But there was also a voice in his brain telling him, "This is nice, but somebody's going to talk some sense into Alexander, so don't get too happy. " "I tend to drive myself crazy like that, overthinking things," Forte said during an anxiety-free interview.

Being the son of an obsessive filmmaker means your life already has a destiny, whether intended or not. That was certainly the case for Jonás Cuarón, the eldest son of Mexican filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón. Young Jonás spent weeks on his father's first feature, 1991's "Love in the Time of Hysteria. " He had a small role in his father's second film, 1995's "A Little Princess," and attended school on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank. "He was so happy," remembered Alfonso. "He was the only boy surrounded by 20 girls.

PARK CITY, Utah -- Michael Cera has embarked on some pretty quirky adventures in recent years - “Paper Heart,” or the collected canon of George Michael Bluth. But he's up for some serious noodling in “Crystal Fairy,” a new road trip dramatic comedy that helped open the Sundance Film Festival on Thursday night and is told in a mix of English and Spanish. (Cera speaks mostly the former.) For one thing, the film was shot in Chile, over a period of 12 days, with nothing close to a script.

In the astute new road-trip movie "Crystal Fairy," set mostly in Chile's Atacama Desert, Michael Cera plays an archetypal Ugly American. In fact, Cera plays several versions of the Ugly American popularized through generations of movies, novels and plays. His fabulously annoying character, Jamie, who's obsessed with experiencing the ultimate high by drinking mescaline brewed from the rare San Pedro cactus, is also the Stoner American, the Entitled American and, perhaps most familiar of all, the Materially Bloated But Spiritually Malnourished American Desperately Seeking Enlightenment.

Once upon a time in Hollywood, Ivan Reitman was the reigning comedic director and Tom Pollock was the Universal Studios chief who financed and distributed some of Reitman's biggest blockbusters. Together, they minted money with "Twins" and "Kindergarten Cop," both starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, as well as the "Beethoven" series of family movies.

When it comes to marketing movies, tiny Providence Entertainment knows it lacks the financial muscle of the major Hollywood studios, but that isn't stopping the faith-based production and distribution company from aggressively pushing its latest release, the teen-oriented sports film "Extreme Days." The small, family-friendly film, which opens in 354 theaters Friday, attempts to capitalize on the current phenomenon among today's teens of competing in extreme sports.

California wine sales in the United States hit another record in 2005, a rise experts attribute to a combination of factors including the Supreme Court weighing in on wine shipments and the vino-centric movie "Sideways." "Wine is enjoying this wonderful moment of very favorable attitudes," said industry consultant Jon Fredrikson, who compiled the figures released Monday by the San Francisco-based Wine Institute. California wine shipments to U.S.

Regarding "Death or Illness: Airfare Refunded?" by Catharine Hamm [On the Spot, Nov. 4]: As infrequent travelers, my best friend and I signed up for a trip to New York City some years ago. Travel insurance was offered, but we weren't sure we'd need it. After much thought, we went with it. We were surely glad we had. The last thing we expected was for me to end up in the hospital just a week before takeoff. The company we dealt with was great. We had complete refunds. "Nonrefundable" means taking a big chance, so you really need to weigh that concept against insurance.

Six years ago, music video and commercial directors Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton made the transition to celebrated indie darlings when their sweet-natured family road trip movie "Little Miss Sunshine" emerged as the talk of the Sundance Film Festival and traveled a seemingly unlikley path to Oscar glory. Afterward, the two took on adventurous projects, working on adaptations of Tom Perrotta's "The Abstinence Teacher," the long-gestating comedy "The Used Guys" and Demitri Martin's "Will" script, but none of those made it past the development stage.
