Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger
The scene being shot for the real-life crime saga Bonnie & Clyde in Baton Rouge looks innocent enough: Inside an old sugar refinery that's been made to look like a 1930s speakeasy, couples in vintage finery crowd the dance floor. Clyde Barrow (Into the Wild's Emile Hirsch) takes his pretty date, Bonnie Parker (The Borgias' Holliday Grainger), for a twirl, then leans in for their first kiss. "I'm the man who's going to make your dreams come true," Barrow, a wannabe gangster, promises the girl who craves fame no...

Alan Cumming is a perfect choice to host the 2011 Britannia Awards (Sunday at 8/7c on TV Guide Network). I mean, the man won a Tony Award for playing an emcee (for Cabaret in 1998)! Plus, the Scottish actor has other skills relevant to the gig — just ask him. "I'm a little bit cheeky and a little bit mischievous," he says. "I'm quite good on my feet."
It's a good thing too, because Cumming's packed schedule — including his ongoing gig on The Good Wife, which shoots in New York — made it difficult to find time to fly to Los Angeles to host the show, let alone prepare what he will say. "It kind of keeps me on my toes and kind of feels like doing theater without having to do a play for six months," he says. "I have no script yet, but I enjoy the last minute-ness of it."

Cumming promises that he won't be nearly as controversial as that other biting awards show host from across the pond. "I think it's a Scottish thing to...

12. Best Shout-Out to the HFP-Who? Here's how Best Supporting Actor winner Christian Bale (The Fighter) thanked the ragtag group of journalists abroad known as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association: "I never really knew who those guys were. I'd always leave the press junkets going, 'Who are those awful characters in that room?' I usually just sat there and they'd be arguing amongst themselves... And now I know who you are, and I realize how wise and spectacular and perceptive those guys really are! ...What a bunch of characters."

Though studio suits had been pushing for an A-lister to play the disgraced prez in Ron Howard's upcoming take on the stage drama Frost/Nixon, Playbill.com reports that Frank Langella, currently channeling the Watergate wonder on Broadway, may snag the gig despite names such as Warren Beatty and Kevin Spacey being bandied about. Similarly, Michael Sheen (aka Kate Beckinsale's babydaddy), is in talks to reprise his role as David Frost. Having seen the production three days ago, I predict that Langella will win the Tony and perhaps an Oscar for his stunning work. Almost makes me forgive him for Cutthroat Island. Almost.
