Marlon Wayans: I still want to play Richard Pryor

Marlon Wayans' new film "A Haunted House" is a spoof of films like "Paranormal Activity," which purport to be "found footage" movies - the kind that lead the audience to believe they're witnessing events that have been captured and later discovered.

"Because it's cheap," Wayans said, smiling. "It's inexpensive, and I wanted to figure out a way to do a low-budget comedy film. Found footage was the way to go because that's what this generation is used to so I wanted to capitalize on that."

Youngest best actress Oscar nominee keeps her cool

At age 9, "Beasts of the Southern Wild" star Quvenzhané Wallis has a self-possessed quality that any adult would envy.

Overheard: McConaughey's weight loss secret

With New Year's resolutions still hanging over us, Matthew McConaughey had a bit of timely advice when we caught up with him at the Critics Choice Awards in Los Angeles Thursday night.

We started chatting about his weight loss for the upcoming "Dallas Buyers Club," and McConaughey explained that dropping nearly 40 pounds wasn't that tough.

"It wasn't as difficult - once I made up my mind to do it - as people said or thought it would be," McConaughey said. "I got past being hungry. I think the secret [to losing weight] is don't take meetings as Pizza Hut. Don't put yourself under that temptation."
