Tomei came out of nowhere in 1992 to win an Oscar for her turn in "My Cousin Vinny," and went on to enjoy steady, if unremarkable employment for the next several years. But since 2007, she's given some great performances in some very good films, including "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead," "The Wrestler" and "Cyrus."
And in 2011 she'll be seen in "The Lincoln Lawyer," "Salvation Boulevard," "Crazy Stupid, Love" and "The Ides of March." So why on Earth would she saddle up alongside SJP, who hasn't had a film top 55% on Rotten Tomatoes in over a decade? And whose last two non-"Sex and the City" films combined to make $39 million?
