In "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton ruled the Las Vegas Strip for years, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt's growing ego. But lately the duo's greatest deception is their public friendship, as they've secretly grown to loathe each other.

Facing cutthroat competition from guerilla street magician Steve Gray, whose cult following surges with each outrageous stunt, even their show is starting to look stale.

Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi in The Incredible Burt Wonderston

His best friend/partner, his money, his career and hits rock bottom.  It's here that he develops humility and learns what's really important in life.

Jim Carrey signed up to appear in new movie The Incredible Burt Wonderstone after the film's lead Steve Carell personally called him about the role.

We spotted Olivia Wilde filming a new Revlon commercial in New York City yesterday. The newly blonde star strutted confidently down the street despite the drizzling rain.

The actress wore a white dress, beige jacket and matching booties. Her wavy blonde hair was light and bouncy, and she wore dramatic dark red lipstick.

Wilde recently confessed to British GQ magazine, "I was very sexually mature at a very young age. I was very comfortable with it and talking about it, and once someone hears a young woman speak candidly about sexuality, it's like, 'Whoa!' You get labeled."

She stars in ...
