In 1994, directors Joel and Ethan Coen teamed up with their pal Sam Raimi for 'The Hudsucker Proxy.' Co-written by Raimi, the film follows inexperienced small-town business school graduate Norville Barnes (Tim Robbins), who is suddenly placed at the head of Hudsucker Industries when the company's founder commits suicide. Working as his proxy, Norville must scramble to help keep the company afloat and navigate the world of ruthless corporate businessmen. Nineteen years later, we take a look back at the cast of this screwball comedy and see where they are now.
The Coen Brothers' latest music-infused film, 'Inside Llewyn Davis,' follows a young folk singer as he submerges himself in the Greenwich Village music scene in the early '60s.

There are no filmmakers more consistent in churning out masterpieces on a regular basis than Joel Coen and Ethan Coen, whose filmography is almost entirely made up of great films, underrated gems and, um, 'The Ladykillers.' Every new Coen Bros. film is an event and 'Inside Llewyn Davis' is no different -- it may not have the major star power of 'True Grit' or 'No Country For Old Men,' but there is no 2013 film that has us more excited.
It's arguable that the Coen Brothers are the greatest working directors of our day. Sure, there's Steven Spielberg and Quentin Tarantino (among others), but Joel and Ethan Coen have delivered some of the best films of all time, and some of the greatest films of the last ten years. Their latest, 'Inside Llewyn Davis,' opens in December and it's likely that it will be another Oscar favorite.
