No doubt that the married father of two will be looking to earn another Academy Award win or at least a nominee with this performance. With the talent he has, I'm convinced he'll at least be up for consideration. Although with all of the awards he's been nominated for or won in his career, I'm still upset that none were for Love Actually. I actually love that movie! (That was a lame joke, I know, but it's Friday so leave me alone.)

Aussie actress Nicole Kidman was caught filming a scene for her upcoming film The Railway Man in Berwick, Scotland on May 16th. The Oscar winner was also spotted at the Cannes Film Festival this week for her latest role in The Paperboy. From Tribune.com:
"Nicole Kidman plays an “oversexed Barbie doll” in the hard-hitting murder drama The Paperboy, premiering at the Cannes film festival on Thursday and notable for arresting scenes of sex and violence.

In the adaptation of a Pete Dexter novel, the Australian Oscar winner plays trailer-trash bombshell Charlotte Bless, who is obsessed with a man on death row with whom she exchanges letters.
She is drawn into a newspaper investigation into the prisoner, who may have been wrongfully convicted, triggering a frantic series of sexual encounters, humorous exchanges and a dangerous game of violence and death in the Florida swamps."
Nicole Kidman is a one of a kind actress, as the mother of 4 blends seamlessly from "oversexed Barbie doll" to WWII correspondent Martha Gellhorn and now to the role of Patricia in a movie about a victim of that same war. I'm not sure which of her upcoming movies' I'm more excited for.

Wow, that sounds like a deeply serious and moving story. Much too serious for the likes of us, so we'll just focus on the actors looking great on the set. No release date has been set but once it is I think we all should watch this story to further understand how devastating war can truly be.
