Hello, Oscar bait. Natalie Portman, Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire will star in director Jim Sheridan's 'Brothers' (opening Dec. 4). The film follows Grace (Portman), a young wife dealing with the presumed death of Marine husband Sam Cahill (Maguire), killed while at war in Afghanistan. When Sam's brother Tommy (Gyllenhaal) steps in to help Grace rebuild her life, they develop a mutual attraction. In an unexpected twist of fate, it is revealed that Sam never perished and will be returning to his family. The lasting impact of war on soldiers and their families is evident as these relationships are thwarted by trauma.

Natalie Portman, a Harvard College grad, has said she'd "rather be smart than a movie star," and, well, we think she's pretty good at both. Aside from her immense talent (Oscar-nominee; Golden Globe-winner), Portman also has proven comedy chops (watch her rap for 'SNL'), is an animal rights advocate (PETA) and is what most consider gorgeous (see: her face).

Co-star Gyllenhaal, whose splendid physique is worthy of mention (see our 'Prince of Persia' set visit), has racked up an impressive resume, including the acclaimed 'Brokeback Mountain' and cult-fave 'Donnie Darko.'

Rounding out the cast is 'Spider Man' himself Tobey Maguire who, when he's not busy starring in the massive blockbuster franchise, is an avid poker player and took part in the 2007 World Series of Poker.

This Saturday, Nov. 21, Moviefone is excited to host Natalie Portman, Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire for an Unscripted interview where they'll be asking each other questions submitted by you. Ask them anything you'd like, just make sure you do it before Thursday, Nov. 19 (don't forget to include your first name and where you live). Then check back here on Monday, Nov. 30 to see if your question made the cut. Good luck!
