Like we reported before Jessica will be part of Jimmy Kimmel Live’s Oscar Special airing this Sunday. She will make an appearance in his sketch “Movie: The Movie: 2V”. A sneak preview/teaser of the segment was released today. Be sure to check it out!

We added a batch of photos of of Jessica arriving at the The Walter Kerr Theater in New York for “The Heiress”. Jessica did her final performance of the play on February 9.
Screen Daily has talked with International Universal Pictures’ president David Kosse, which opened Universal wants a sequel for ‘Mama’, due the current success of the movie in the box office. Mama is approaching $70 million at home with more to come from overseas.
But the director Andrés Muschietti gtgfisn’t interested. He told to ScreenCrush:
We sort of wore out the subject matter…I never thought this could continue. Sequels are always tricky. I know how studios think but I don’t see ‘Mama’ as something you can exploit because you’re screwing with the original. I’m really hoping to jump into some other movies right now.”
Of course it doesn’t mean there would be no more sequels. I think Universal can think about doing it without Muschietti, Del Toro or even Chastain on board.

The Hollywood Reporter sat down with Jessica to talk about her career and of course “Zero Dark Thirty”.
For the second year in a row, the actress Jessica Chastain is Oscar-nominated for a performance in a film that is also a best picture Oscar nominee. Last year, she was a best supporting actress nominee for The Help, which was joined in the top category by another film in which she starred, The Tree of Life; this year, she is a best actress nominee for Zero Dark Thirty, for which she has already won the Critics’ Choice Award for best actress and Golden Globe Award for best actress in a drama. And, for the second year in a row, she has starred in films that were number one and number two at the box-office in the same weekend. Last year, The Help and The Debt proved to be blockbusters; this year Zero Dark Thirty and Mama were big hits.
With a critical and commercial track record like that, it probably won’t come as a surprise to learn that the delicate-looking but ferociously ambitious 35-year-old redhead is now one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actresses. Her mentor Al Pacino recently told Roger Ebert, “I never saw in my career, in my entire time doing this, anyone in the business who’s not a household name yet, but so sought after as her.” So how did Chastain celebrating her recent coronation as a member of Hollywood’s A-list? By performing in eight shows a week as the title character of The Heiress on Broadway.
