Patrick Wilson takes a still-unnamed role in Edgar Wright's 'Ant-Man'

It's amazing how much we don't know about this film so far

Despite my best efforts, I am unable to figure out who Patrick Wilson will be playing for "Ant-Man," directed by Edgar Wright from a script by Wright and Joe Cornish.

With many of the Marvel movies, it is a simple process of elimination. If you're at all familiar with the property, then you can guess who's playing what, but in this case, Wright and Cornish are doing something that is not going to be building off of any one particular storyline or even era of the comic. They're taking some characters people know and building a very different story around them that also now folds into the ongoing story that the larger Marvel movie universe has been telling for the last five or six years.

Patrick Wilson is joining the cast in what has ben described as "the last big role still open," and I have no idea who he could be. I'm hearing that Michael Douglas will be shown in action in the past, and even with digital technology, I'm guessing Douglas won't actually play those parts in flashback. Instead, they'll have to use someone else to play Yellowjacket at the height of his spy days. Could that be the part that Wilson will play? It would be an interesting way of setting up a very different franchise than anything else Marvel's got going right now.

'Grey's Anatomy': What did you think of April's decision?

She made it to the altar, but what happened next was surprising

If you haven't seen the midseason premiere of "Grey's Anatomy" but are a fan of the show, you probably know the big cliffhanger was what April was going to do after Jackson's protestation of love. It's always great when a guy feels comfortable sharing his feelings, though it's a little less great when said guy decides to stand up and shout them at you as you're about to marry another guy. Timing is everything, isn't it?

'At Telluride I thought we were halfway done!'

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — With the Independent Spirit Awards and the Oscars coming up this weekend, finally putting a bow on the year and wrapping up the kudos season, studios, agencies, production companies and anyone in between are feting those in their midst with skin in the game at this soiree or that. Thursday night, among other things, it was Paramount Pictures holding one of its big star-packed parties at Spago in Beverly Hills, everyone from Roger Corman to Jane Seymour turning out to honor the studio's Oscar nominees in films like "The Wolf of Wall Street," "Nebraska," "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa" and "Star Trek Into Darkness."
