    Some very good choices! Really, really looking forward to Elizabeth Olsen in Kill Your Darlings and Chiwetel Ejiofor in Twelve Years a Slave as well.
    Far too few people give Ejiofor the credit he deserves, and hopefully this will help change that.

    I’m also really looking forward to…

    – Leonardio DiCaprio in The Great Gatsby (rather intrigued about the 3D there),

    – Josh Brolin and Elizabeth Olsen in Oldboy.

    – Aubrey Plaza and Rachel Bilson in The To Do List.

    – Emma Watson in The Bling Ring.

    – Matt Damon in Elysium.

    – Ryan Gosling in Only God Forgives.

    – The entire cast of This Is the End & The World’s End.

    – And Daniel Craig and George Clooney in Monuments Men.
