Friday Night Lights star Minka Kelly will play Jackie Kennedy in Lee Daniel’s upcoming film The Butler, which tells the story of White House butler Eugene Allen (played by Forest Whitaker) who served under eight presidents. The all-star cast also includes Oprah Winfrey, Matthew McConaughey (as John F.

Gary Oldman (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) is set to play the bad guy again, this time as the scientist Norton who creates the titular cyborg in Jose Padilha’s upcoming remake of Robocop. Robocop will be played by Joel Kinnaman (The Killing). The film is set for a summer 2013 release. [THR]

• From Harry Potter to punk rock? Rupert Grint is set to star in two upcoming films. In CBGB, he’ll play rocker Cheetah Chrome opposite Alan Rickman as legendary club owner Hilly Kristal. Will taking direction from a gritty club owner be much different than from Professor Snape? The second stop for the redhead is The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, where he’ll star opposite Shia LaBeouf. [Variety]

'Hunger Games,' 'Bridesmaids' top MTV Movie Award nominees

This year’s MTV Movie Awards will be a showdown between a bevy of bridesmaids and a cast of killer kids.

“Bridesmaids” and “The Hunger Games” top nominees at MTV’s annual film honors with eight nods apiece, including bids for best cast, breakthrough performance and movie of the year. Rounding out the best-picture contenders are “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” ”The Help” And “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part 1.”

MTV announced nominees Monday in 12 categories, including six new ones such as “best on-screen dirtbag” and “best gut-wrenching performance.” Also new this year: Nominees were selected by a panel of actors, producers, agents and industry tastemakers instead of via online vote from the public.

Fans can still choose the winners, though. Voting begins online Tuesday at 8 a.m. Eastern time.

The 21st annual MTV Movie Awards will be presented June 3 at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City and broadcast live on MTV.

Oscars 2012 Behind the Scenes: 'Harry Potter' cast and crew talk breaking into Gringotts -- VIDEO

Each year, the Oscars recognize A-list talent we regularly see on screen, on the red carpet, and in tabloids. But the Academy Awards also reward those who work behind the scenes: the writers, editors, costume designers, and others who help create trophy-worthy movie magic. This Oscars season, we’ll be toasting those off-screen artists by delving into the hidden secrets that helped create the on-screen magic that we — and the Academy — fell in love with. For more access backstage during this Oscars season, click here for EW.com’s Oscars Behind the Scenes coverage.

Any Harry Potter devotee can tell you that the most crucial parts of the series lie within the smallest of details. In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, nothing could be more so than Gringotts bank — the location of the fourth Horcrux. In this behind-the-scenes video, we learn how the crucial, fiery scene made it from camera to screen, no doubt helping the last film in the series to pick up Oscar nods for Best Visual Effects, Best Art Direction, and Best Makeup. Actors who played the dozens of Gringotts goblins also make an appearance, specifying how they were outfitted, from their teeth to contact lenses. Take a look below. READ FULL STORY

For your consideration: 'Harry Potter' for Best Picture. But is it too late?

With the nominations for the Producers Guild Awards announced today, the field of Oscar contenders for Best Picture is getting clearer. While some Oscar prognosticators are noting the absence of the critically-acclaimed film The Tree of Life, another movie filled with eye-popping visual effects and that addresses profound questions about life and death was also left off the PGA’s short list: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2.

The Harry Potter franchise has had a surprisingly paltry haul when it comes to Oscar gold: No wins, and only nine nominations across the first seven films (and none at all for Chamber of Secrets and The Order of the Phoenix). But despite the Academy’s Muggle-like attitude towards the highest-grossing film franchise of all time — and the final film’s inability to break into the main pack of awards season contenders — Warner Bros. is still putting some serious marketing muscle into a campaign to win Harry his first Best Picture nod. Artful billboards with laudatory film critic quotes have been popping up all over Los Angeles for months now, and the studio has also been releasing a series of TV ads to the same purpose (which you can watch, embedded below). These ads are ostensibly to promote the film’s DVD and Blu-ray discs — which hit stores way back on Nov. 11, whereas Oscar ballots are due Jan. 13. Check them out below. Do you think the campaign is enough to convince Academy voters to give Harry Potter his due at the Kodak?  READ FULL STORY
