PRODUCTION PLAYER! DO NOT DELETE.


Rarely does a film's cast look so promising. 'Nine' is positively bursting with talent -- Daniel Day-Lewis, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Nicole Kidman, Dame Judi Dench, Sophia Loren, Kate Hudson and Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson all star -- and they came out in droves to support the premiere last night.

We took advantage of our prime spot on the arrivals line to talk all things 'Nine,' and to get the scoop on some other hot topics. We spoke with director Rob Marshall and producer/choreographer John DeLuca about their favorite musical numbers in the film, pressed Dame Judi Dench for details on the next James Bond film, and got Tobey Maguire's reaction to his Golden Globe nomination for 'Brothers.'
