Amanda Brooks, Nolan Funk, James Deen and Lindsay Lohan
We have got several pictures from the set of The Canyons. Seen in the pictures are Lindsay Lohan, James Deen, Nolan Funk, Gus Van Sant, Amanda Brooks and Director Paul Schrader. The official twitter account of the movie tweeted the pictures. From twitter:
"Check out this BTS look at rehearsal for @TheCanyonsFilm with @lindsaylohan, @JamesDeen, @nolanfunk and Amanda Brooks."

Wait, so Gus Van Sant is involved in this movie but he isn't directing? What? That's so weird. I guess he's played a few small parts over the years. Being on set with Paul Schrader and Gus Van Sant at the same time would be a great place to learn if you want to be a director when you grow up. Imagine getting to pick the brains of the guys who brought us Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, American Gigolo, The Last Temptation of Christ, Drugstore Cowboy, My Own Private Idaho, Good Will Hunting and Milk?

Last week Julianne Hough got a visit from her mother Mari Anne Hough and some cops on the set of Safe Haven in Southport, North Carolina. Hough appears in this new movie with Josh Duhamel based on a Nicholas Sparks novel. From IMDB.com:
"A young woman with a mysterious past lands in Southport, North Carolina where her bond with a widower forces her to confront the dark secret that haunts her."

Hough sure has been busy ever since she got her acting career on track. First came 2010's Burlesque, then the Footloose remake in 2011. Then earlier this year she was in Rock of Ages the 1980's themed musical. Now, not only is she filming Safe Haven but she also recently finished an Untitled Diablo Cody Project. The former Dancing With The Stars pro will be starring opposite Russell Brand and Holly Hunter in Diablo Cody's directoral debut.

Over the weekend Oscar nominated actress Viola Davis was seen on the set of her latest movie The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby in New York City. Viola joins several other cast mates that we have seen on set over the last few weeks. No word on what role Davis will be playing, but I'm sure she'll play it great.

Even after 2 Oscar nominations, one for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Doubt (2008) and Best Actress in a Leading Role for The Help (2010), Viola Davis still can't seem to get a leading role. It's quite a shame since she is such a great actress, but at the same time I'm sure there are plenty of actors and actresses who would kill to get as many roles as she gets. At the same time I feel she should get more chances at a starring role. I hope she does in the future.

Lenny Kravitz was caught on the set of his new move The Butler yesterday in Louisiana. Kravitz will be joined on this project by a number of other big names. John Cusack, Robin Williams, Alan Rickman, Liev Schreiber, Cuba Gooding Jr., Forest Whitaker, Melissa Leo, Terrence Howard, Jane Fonda, Minka Kelly and Alex Pettyfer. Lenny tweeted the pictures and included the following message to his fans.
"Shooting on the set of the movie "The Butler" in Louisiana. Love, Lenny

The story is about a butler who has worked at the White House for 8 different Presidents over three decades and is based on an article written by Wil Haygood for The Washington Post, which you can read here. It seems like quite an interesting story and the cast looks amazing as well. I got so caught up in the story of the movie that I almost forgot all about Lenny Kravitz. He is so damn sexy that when he did a cameo on Entourage he had one of the best and most unforgettable lines of the whole series. As Ari is trying to get him to play a small part in a movie Lenny protests because he thinks the director is trying to sleep with him. Ari assures Lenny that the director isn't gay because he once dated an ex-girlfriend of his, but then Kravitz responds, "Look, I can turn the best of them." That pretty much sums him up.

Last Week Keira Knightley was seen having fun on the set of her new film Can A Song Save Your Life? while filming on location in Washington Square Park in New York City. This wasn't the first time Knightley was spotted playing some music on set. Last week we got to see Knightley playing her guitar by herself and also with her co-star Mark Ruffalo.

I've often wondered if she can actually play the thing, but after seeing her with it so many times she must. At the very least she learned to play the songs he performs for the movie. She must right? At the very least she learned a few of the basics. I took guitar lessons for a couple weeks and I can rock Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star like nobody's business. I almost went pro, but then I couldn't make it to the next lesson. I don't feel sorry for myself I feel sorry for the rest of the World who don't get to hear my musical geniusness.

The Weekend Winner is a weekly update here on Caught on Set. Every Monday we will post pictures from the set of the movie that wins the box office battle over the weekend.
Another weekend in the theaters and another week at the top of the box office for The Dark Knight Rises. Great performances by Christian Bale, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the rest of the cast have kept TDKR on top over all the new releases. From BoxOfficeMojo.com:
1 The Dark Knight Rises
2 Total Recall
3 Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days
4 Ice Age: Continental Drift
5 The Watch

For the third weekend in a row Batman was able to hold the top spot over a highly advertised new release. Last week TDKR held off The Watch and this week it won the box office battle against the Total Recall remake. You would think a movie starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel would be able to beat a movie in it's third week in theaters. I think that would normally be the case but not when it's the Caped Crusader.

“A Look Back” is a series of posts we here at Caughtonset.com feature weekly. It’s as simple as the title makes it sound. Each Friday we will take “A Look Back” to the set of a newly released film. Look at pictures from the set today, then watch the movie tonight.
Today we take A Look Back at Total Recall. This version is a remake of the 1990 of the same name that starred Arnold Schwarzenegger. That's right kids, before he became a politician The Arnold was an actor. This time around the film stars Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale.

Total Recall may not best the take of TDKR but it should score the highest of this week's new releases. I wasn't sure about this movie when it was first announced, I'm not really a fan of remakes. But the more I see of the movie I'm pretty sure I'll be getting around to the theater sometime this weekend. I mean TDKR is great but it doesn't feature a woman with three tits! Or Kate Beckinsale for that matter.
