Cameras have been rolling on the indie Steve Jobs biopic jOBS for weeks now, but apparently there’s still room for some last-minute additions. Kevin Dunn (Luck) had boarded the cast in the role of Apple CEO Gil Amelio, while J.K. Simmons will portray venture capitalist and Apple investor Arthur Rock. Other recently announced cast members include Elden Henson, who’ll play Macintosh developer Andy Hertzfeld; Lenny Jacobson, who’ll play Apple engineer Burrell Smith; Giles Matthey, who’ll play iPod designer Jonathan Ive; and Victor Rasuk, who’ll play early Apple employee Bill Fernandez.
Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote) is directing the film from a script by Matt Whiteley. Ashton Kutcher stars as the late Apple co-founder; the cast also includes Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak, Ahna O’Reilly as Jobs’ girlfriend Chris-Ann Brennan, Matthew Modine, Lukas Haas, Dermot Mulroney, Lesley Ann Warren, and many more. As we’ve stressed before, this is a completely separate project from the Walter Isaacson-based, Aaron Sorkin-scripted biopic that Sony has brewing. jOBS is targeting a late 2012 release. [THR]
After the jump, The Killing actor Billy Campbell becomes the sixteenth President of the United States.

Michael Mann (Heat) and David Milch (Deadwood) have collaborated on Luck, a new HBO series that takes place in the world of horse racing. Dustin Hoffman plays what looks like this series’ rough equivalent to Al Swearingen, and Nick Nolte, Richard Kind, Dennis Farina, John Ortiz, Joan Allen, Ian Hart, Kevin Dunn, Kerry Condon, Tom Payne and Patrick J. Adams all have roles.
We saw a brief bit of footage back in April thanks to an in-production featurette. Now we’ve got the real, if all-too-brief teaser trailer for the series. As you’d hope for a show created by Mann and Milch and featuring that cast, Luck looks pretty fantastic. Check it out below. Read More »
I wouldn’t normally recommend watching a Linkin Park music video but… you should check out the video for the band’s single “Iridescent”. The video features a bunch of new footage from Transformers: Dark of the Moon. It is almost like a new one and a half minute trailer released in the form of a clip-package music video.

With the approaching release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, images from the film are starting to get out into the wild. It seems like there are certain requirements for any Transformers stills that don’t feature robots: they’ve got to have explosions, Shia LaBeouf running, or characters appearing to cautiously move through a location. And now we’ve got an image to cover each one of those bases for the third film. Check ’em out after the break. And, sorry, no robots. Read More »
Entertainment Weekly has out first (or last?) glimpse of the 12-minute Lost epilogue “The New Man in Charge” that will be included on the Series Finale DVD/Blu-ray set. Actor Michael Emerson reveals that “Ben is going around to Dharma installations and closing some down. There are some good surprises.” And yes, ”it does answer questions.'”

As expected, Kevin Dunn and Julie White have officially signed on to reprise their roles as Ron and Judy Witwicky, the parents of Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) in Michael Bay’s Transformers 3. We’ve previously reported that LaBeouf, and co-stars Megan Fox and Tyrese Gibson are set to return for the third installment.

It has been a few days since our last Transformers 2 Update. On Wednesday, filming continued at Laurel Hill Cemetery, where both Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and that Chevy Beat concept car (not pictured) were spotted in alt mode. [tflive]
The crew has been busy shooting scenes at UPENN, which will double as Sam Witwicky’s (Shia LaBeouf) college. Kendall Whitehouse has more photos of them setting up on Flickr. Kevin Dunn, who plays Sam Witwicky’s father Ron was spotted by fadedsilverscreen with a visitor sticker on his chest. This is the first confirmation that he is featured in the sequel. Julie White who played Sam’s mother Judy Witwicky in the original film, was no where in sight.
A banner outside University of Pennsylvania’s fraternity Psi Upsilon (known as “The Castle”) advertises a frat party, which was filmed later that night.
One extra describes a scene that was shot to TFLive:
“Shia was sitting on a old wooden chair when this girl in a green short dress (who I thought was an extra) was dancing in front of him and kept leaning into him. That’s it for the scene I was in but there is a lot more to it.”
The girl in the green dress is actually Isabel Lucas, who is playing Sam’s college friend (or maybe more?) named Alice.
A sequence involving Bumblebee racing down the street doing peel outs and 180’s was also filmed on 32nd and Chestnut. Jszack caught some of it on camera.
Later that night they filmed a scene where Isabel Lucas storms away from Bumblebee (in alt mode) after saying something to Sam through the passenger’s side window, leaving Shia LaBoeuf to talk to (or possibly yell at?) the car. Not exactly sure how this fits into the scene, but they were squirting this glowing green goo on Lucas. Thanks to zacklur for the photos. And yes, that is Michael Bay directing Shia and Isabel in the photo below.
