Best known for his role as the lovable goofball Andy Dwyer on NBC's Parks and Recreation actor Chris Pratt is really steeping up into the big leagues and the big screen this winter appearing in two films that couldn't be more different from one another.
The first, Zero, Dark Thirty from the academy award winning director of Hurt Locker, Kathryn Bigelow. The film revolves around the crew that was sent in to capture and who eventually killed Osama Bin Laden. Not to be without controversy, Bigelow has come under some scrutiny for the film. With accusations that she somehow got access to inside information and also the thought that it may just be too soon and exploitative to put a film like this out there as soon as this Dec. Lastly, Bigelow was supposedly working on a drug cartel film with A list cast lined up that has taken a back seat due to this project.

Never before have we seen a character come full circle with a song that has so much meaning. And not just to the character but to the actor as well. On the most recent episode of Glee The Breakup we get to see Darren perform an acoustic version of Katy Perry's and in it's own way, Darren's hit song "Teenage Dream".
Besides the interesting arrangement of the song, the tone behind each performance of Teenage Dream on the show truly makes each version unique. While the show has its ups and downs this is one of the more recent moments that really stood out to me. And also an element of the show that has carried over from a previous season in a way that wasn't forced or cheesy. I included an old interview of Darren from Rolling Stone from when he first starred in the role of Blaine he comments (well sings) what it means to him and where he'd hope the story would go and for the most part it seems like he ha really had some input on the character as I feel a lot of the things he mentioned about the character and his relationship with Kurt have come to fruition. I just love what the show has done with this character and hope you guys do too!

Nowadays it seems like everybody wants to do an 'Indie' movie, not that there's anything wrong with that.It's just... with so many out there it's getting harder and harder to find the good ones.
Here are Efron's and Pitt's latest attempts to give us some good indies. I'm a little torn on both but definitely think there is at least something there that pulls you in. What do you guys think??
Check out the trailers for both The Paper Boy starring Zac Efron and Killing them Softly starring Brad Pitt after the jump! As always, let me know the RBR Facebook page what your thoughts are!
