While the latest 'Annie' trailer -- highlighting moments from the upcoming movie remake of the classic Broadway play -- expectedly has a lot of singing and dancing, it's more about the comedy this time around, which is full of your classic Broadway musical-style cheesiness cheekiness. Even Jamie Foxx's Daddy Warbucks knockoff spinoff Will Stacks can make a crack at The Dark Knight (a joke which you'll see brought up again).

Well, you can add that 'Annie' remake to Jame Foxx's increasingly busy schedule. The Oscar-winning actor is currently in negotiations with Sony to join the project, which will star 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' lead Quvenzhane Wallis as the adorable orphan girl of the title.

Sometimes, Saturday Night Live simply embraces absurdity and we're all the better for it. Does it make any sense that the Catholic church would elect nine year old Oscar nominee Quvenzhané Wallis as the new Pope? Does it make any sense that guest host Kevin Hart would play her and not even bother to hide his facial hair and other masculine features? Nah, but the results sure are hilarious.

Quvenzhané Wallis made a name for herself by starring in the critically acclaimed 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' and snagging a nice 2013 Oscar nomination for Best Actress in the process, making her the youngest, at 9, to get a nomination. All eyes are on her as she makes her next step into the acting world, and the title role in the upcoming 'Annie' reboot could be where she heads next.
