Olivia Wilde is returning to TV yet again. The former “House” and “The O.C.” star has garnered quite a successful film career for herself, but perhaps the lure of HBO, the golden age of TV and Martin Scorsese proved irresistible. Wilde has signed on to star opposite Bobby Cannavale (another in the pro column) in an untitled drama pilot for the prestigious premium network.

Adam Driver’s career is insane. His latest conquest: a role opposite Andrew Garfield in Martin Scorsese’s long-gestating “Silence,” according to Showbiz 411, who heard the news directly from the director himself over Golden Globes weekend.

Leonardo Dicaprio works hard and plays hard in the first trailer for Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street”, and does it with a little help from Jonah Hill and Aussie newcomer Margot Robbie.

But it’s not all fun and games for Belfort, who struggled with addiction, cheated on his first wife (Broadway starRead More
