Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx just can't get enough of each other: the Django Unchained co-stars are set to team up for a new project. Meanwhile, though Sandra Bullock was initially in talks to play Miss Hannigan in the big-screen remake of Annie, Cameron Diaz has nabbed the role. Ryan Reynolds, Mark Wahlberg and Joel Edgerton are also adding new projects to their calendars. Click through to see all the biggest casting news, straight from Hollywood!
On the heels of last week's news that Jena Malone has been cast as Johanna Malone in Catching Fire, Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman has reportedly accepted a role as well. He'll play Plutarch Heavensbee, the new Gamemaker at the Capitol, in the second chapter of the Hunger Games trilogy.
Hoffman has most recently been on Broadway, playing the lead role in Death of a Salesman, so this will be quite the change from his recent work schedule. Having recently read the second book myself, Hoffman seems like an ideal fit for Seneca Crane's successor. What do you think, is he the type you were imagining while reading the series?

Brad Pitt brought Moneyball home to Oakland for its US premiere on Monday evening. He was relaxed and happy to talk as he posed with co-stars and chatted about the film in the setting, which was made to look like a mini baseball stadium. Brad admitted that he wasn't a huge baseball fan going into the film, but he loved the underdog story, and his son Maddox has a love of the game. Brad posed with his co-stars Jonah Hill and Chris Pratt as well as director Bennett Miller; though, Brad was without his partner, Angelina Jolie. Brad, who graces the cover of EW and Sports Illustrated this week, played it very modest when asked about the early awards season buzz surrounding the film, but his co-stars weren't quite as coy. Chris Pratt was among the cast members who gushed about Brad's work as Billy Beane. Brad's onscreen daughter also told media an adorable story about Brad sending her a guitar after their work together. Following the premiere, Brad joined his castmates Catherine Keener and Philip Seymour Hoffman for the festivities inside the city's Paramount Theater, and, according to reports, they had a great time! Brad took photos with fans, chatted with Catherine on a couch, and seemed content to let admirers take photos on their phones.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were greeted by a huge crowd of screaming fans as they stepped onto the red carpet at the Moneyball premiere in Toronto on Friday night. The Toronto International Film Festival has been under way since Thursday, but Friday night was particularly spectacular thanks to the back-to-back Moneyball and The Ides of March gala debuts. Brad was joined by all his co-stars and even the real-life Billy Beane on the TIFF red carpet. Brad and Angelina took a helicopter out of London together on Thursday headed to the festival but are only sweeping through Canada quickly before returning to their kids. Earlier in the day on Friday, Brad did take the stage for the Moneyball press conference where he joked that the film's lesson of taking risks was similar to breaking free from his religious upbringing. Brad looked handsome at both Moneyball events, and next up he and the rest of his cast will be taking his movie to Oakland for the stateside premiere on Sept. 19.

Jodhi Meares has reportedly found love with Oscar-nominated director Bennett Miller. The two were set up by mutual best friends model Kristy Hinze and her husband Jim Clark during their three day wedding celebration last year. Bennett directed the film Capote, which scored him a best Oscar nomination, as well as a Best Actor win for Philip Seymour Hoffman. He is based in New York and after months of long distance dating, Jodhi decided to move to Hawaii to be somewhat closer to her new man and now splits her time between Hawaii, New York and Sydney. Bennett’s next film, Moneyball, starring Brad Pitt, will be released in September in the US. What do you think about Jodhi and Bennett dating?
