Was it Shakespeare or Philip Seymour Hoffman that brought out the stars on Sunday for the opening night of Othello at the Public Theater? Hard to say. Both are pretty big draws for the serious actor types like Meryl Streep, Ralph Fiennes, Faye Dunaway, Liev Schreiber, Francis Fisher and Harvey Keitel.

Meryl Streep, Paul McCartney and Robert Pattinson are next on Tina Fey's 30 Rock guest-star wishlist.

"I think our new dream guest star is Meryl Streep," Tina Fey said backstage at the Emmys, immediately following the show's win for Outstanding Comedy Series. "I think she would be a great love interest for Alec, but I guess they already did a movie like that, so I don't know if she'll do it. I would like her to be Alec's love interest, or Grizz's love interest to change it up."

For 30 years, Meryl Streep has brought characters of great depth to the big screen. John Hiscock meets the Oscar winner as she serves up accomplished fare in the film Julie & Julia as the TV chef who taught America how to cook. Meryl Streep is fondly remembering every detail of the surprise dinner her three daughters cooked for her 60th birthday back in June. She had been in a grumpy mood that day, she recalls, because she had been called in to work even though she had asked for the day off on her special day. "I was really mad and in a bad mood and I came home at 10 at night and my daughters had got together and made an extraordinary meal," she says proudly. "It really touched me and made me so happy because I can't usually get them to load the dishwasher.
Add to your list of national crises the death of the American movie star. The obituary was written as soon as the summer grosses were in. Digital effects, franchising, and cartoons are the engines of boxoffice success this year, a familiar story. You have to go down to the current No. 10 slot to find a truly star-driven movie in a CGI-free context, and that is The Proposal, with a long-in-the-tooth Sandra Bullock wringing a few last dollars from romantic comedy.

Julie & Julia is a smart exception, but where are the other films featuring women who aren't fretting about men - or shoes?

There are chick flicks and there are chick flicks. Julie & Julia is a chick flick. But then again, it isn't. Unusually, the two protagonists are women but the focus of the film isn't shoes, weddings or men.
Food, glorious, food: Meryl Streep put on 15lb while making Julie and Julia, the new film about Julia Child, the six foot two American chef.

Film-makers around the world have often made food as much a central character as the people. Now it's the turn of the US.
In Julie & Julia, Meryl Streep plays Julia Child, the six foot two American chef who introduced French cuisine to her countrywomen in the 1960s.
It covers the early years in her culinary career, contrasting her life with Julie Powell (played by Amy Adams), a woman who aspires to cook all 524 recipes from Child's cookbook, Mastering The Art of French Cooking.

Meryl Streep says film studios are "shocked" when her films are popular.
The 'Julie and Julia' star thinks the industry is "scared" of making films that appeal to women because all the studio executives are men.

The 60-year-old actress said: "It's always a shock to the studio when a film like 'Mamma Mia' does well because men run the studios and live their own fantasies through them.
"It's harder for a man to jump inside a woman character's mind and imagine, 'This could happen to me'. They see it and they understand that there is a market and it will make them an enormous amount of money.
After years of critical acclaim, she is finally winning wide popularity and box office gold, at the age of 60. Her last nine movies have taken in almost $1.2 billion worldwide.
