Cannes Lineup Announced: Surprises include the Angelina Jolie/Clint Eastwood film Changeling and Steven Soderbergh’s back-to-back Che Guevara films. They’re also screening Indiana Jones out of competition, so at least one movie there will be fun to watch.
Most Surprising Factoid of the Day: Kal Penn, who plays Kumar in Harold and Kumar is “currently a visiting professor at the University of Pennsylvania, teaching courses in ‘Images of Asian Americans in the Media’ and “Contemporary American Teen Films.'” Put that in your spliff and smoke it.
SAG Talks Extended: According to Richard Verrier: “The Screen Actors Guild and major Hollywood studios have agreed to extend their contract talks another week in a sign that the two sides are making some, albeit limited, headway in their negotiations toward a new three-year agreement.” A cliffhanger. Goody.
