Links for you: George Clooney 'Up in the Air' and Sam Rockwell is a busy man

The first photos of George Clooney on the set of Jason Reitman's Up in the Air have surfaced. Clooney plays a corporate suit who "specializes in 'career transition counseling'" (read: firing people) and is obsessed with getting 1 million frequent flier miles. [TheBadandUgly.com]

Sci-fi drama, Moon gets reviewed (it's great) in what Kristopher Tapley thinks will become a banner year for sci-fi cinema (sort of like what 2001 was for fantasy). Sam Rockwell, as usual, gets much of the praise. Each film he stars in has me convinced that will be the one role that gets him noticed. I've lost count of how many times that's happened. [In Contention]

And speaking of Sam Rockwell: he's now shooting Iron Man 2. Rockwell's character Justin Hammer is different from how we remember him from the comic books. [MTV via IESB]

Robert Downey Jr. sort of wanted to play Hugh Hefner. Now Hef wants Downey to play him. Can we get this thing made already? [Hollyscoop]

Star Trek isn't out yet (holy crap it opens tomorrow in my country!), but sequel casting is already underway (well, kind of). Star Trek writers Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci think Javier Bardem would make a great Khan. [ComingSoon via The Movie Blog]

My Life in Ruins is meant to be a comedy, but it's apparently unfunny. Sigh, and I had such high hopes for Nia Vardalos after My Big Fat Greek Wedding. [Variety]

And finally for your viewing pleasure from The Onion - Trekkies bash the new Star Trek film for being entertaining, fun, and watchable:
