Gentlemen, if you're attempting to hit on Anna Kendrick, there are a few things you should know.

When MTV News' Josh Horowitz went down to SXSW, he spoke with Kendrick and her "Drinking Buddies" costar Jake Johnson about how they enjoy nights out with their friends. Kendrick's night out with her male friends tends to include one pick-up style that she is no longer accepting.

"Whenever it's my guy friends, it's generally speaking like, we're hanging out, and they want to be like, 'I'm going to order this whisky. I think you're really going to like it.' Guys do that a lot," she said. "Guys, as a move, it's been done. Just FYI. Just so you know. We've all had it done before. It's not an original idea."

Jake Johnson

Welcome to Scene Stealer, a new feature here on Movies Blog where we salute the lesser-known actors who kill it so consistently with each and every scene they're in, they leave you wanting more. These are talented men and women who've already earned your respect, familiar faces you're always happy to see pop up in a movie or TV show -- you just might not know them as marquee names... yet.

Our inaugural Scene Stealer is Jake Johnson, who returns to primetime tonight in all-new episodes of "The New Girl." Johnson can also be seen booting NPH from heaven as Jesus in "A Very Harold And Kumar 3D Christmas," hitting theaters this weekend.

Find out everything you need to know about Jake and his scene-stealing after the jump!

Paper HeartOne of the cooler movies I saw this year at Sundance was director Nicholas Jasenovec's "Paper Heart," a sort of fiction/documentary hybrid that follows comedienne Charlyne Yi and her search for the meaning of love. Interspersed between on-camera interviews with real people are dramatized scenes of Yi's real-life relationship with actor Michael Cera. It's all very clever and meta, and you'll get to see it for yourself when the movie hits theaters on August 7.

Now I'm here to tell you lucky San Diego Comic-Con attendees that Yi will be appearing alongside Jasenovec and Jake Johnson (who plays Jasenovec in the movie) for a July 26 panel. Fans will be able to catch the trio talking about the movie and answering questions in Ballroom 20 at the San Diego Convention Center between 12:30pm and 1pm. The luckiest among you may even score a "Paper Heart" button, which you can see the design of in the image above. Read More...
