Dan Fogler
Alfred Hitchcock biopics have suffered some false starts. One was to star Sir Anthony Hopkins. Now you may have to settle for Dan Fogler, the fruit fornicating best friend from Good Luck Chuck. He's set to play young Hitchcock.

"I knew the movies that everyone knows, Psycho and The Birds but I had to do a lot of research with the books," Fogler said. "I really focused on his early stuff because that's what it's about. It's like Hitchcock in Love, it's about him in his early twenties just finding himself as an artist, as a director."

Well, if Shakespeare in Love suggested a forbidd...

Movies That Will Probably Suck In 2008

The Eye
Movies are awesome. Sometimes, however, a movie isn't awesome. Sometimes it should never have been made, and you shouldn't go see it (because it's a waste of money or you just want to protest). These movies have a high suckitude value, and this should serve as a warning to you all. If you still go and see them, that's your problem. The "Suck Scale" runs from 1-5, with 5 being amazingly bad.

The spoof genre was funny once. Scary Movie was new, fresh and gave a new spin on satire. It proved to movie makers that if they insisted on producing garbage, that garbage would...

He tells MTV, "First of all, we all read the script. We did what we read. I guess to that I would say, she's watching some really silly-ass porn.

Jessica ALba
Jessica Alba has accused the male stars of Good Luck Chuck of turning the movie's set into a "porn" shoot, by tricking female actresses into stripping for unnecessary sex scenes.

Alba claims she fled the studio set each night, to escape the debauched behavior of Dane Cook and his male co-stars, who would end each day by filming two sex scenes that would never make the film.

She says, "It's porn. There were all these actresses who got conned into being completely naked. Some were strippers, probably. But every day when I was done, I ran away. I was like, 'Bye.' As long as they didn...

Funnyman Dane Cook felt particularly seedy while filming sex scenes in new comedy Good Luck Chuck because he had to pretend to "do it" with 30 different women in 36 days.

The actor plays a character who is cursed with the power to help women find their soulmates after sleeping with him, which leaves him unable to find a committed partner. And Cook admits playing a guy who lives from one-night stand to one-night stand proved awkward on the set.

He explains, "We had a shooting schedule that was 36 days, so I had to have pantomime sex with one girl a day. We'd be filming scenes an...

Jessica Alba would prefer to stay at home and play games with her friends than hang out at Hollywood parties. The Good Luck Chuck star can't understand why so many young stars hit the club scene in Los Angeles - because it seems too much like hard work to her.

She says, "I feel like if I'm in the public eye, I'm working, I'm not trying to let it all hang out at a premiere or at... any kind of awards show. I'd rather stay home and play Jenga with a twist, cook some pasta."

So what's this Jenga with a twist game?

She adds, "We write really embarrassing things on the Jenga p...

Jessica Alba has lost her perfectly sexy look after chipping a tooth during a kissing scene in her new movie. The actress admits she and Good Luck Chuck co-star Dane Cook went too far with one energetic love scene and they both needed dentistry work.
