Sundance Today: James Franco, Ben Affleck, Tommy Lee Jones And More

It’s our first full day at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah: the skies are cloudy, the snow is expected to fall into the night and MTV News has a jam-packed schedule of screenings, events and interviews with the top talent at this mountain resort.

As the day develops, and as we slog through the accumulating slush on Main Street, we’ll be bringing you the very latest from the film festival. In terms of interviews, we’ll be chatting with James Franco and Jon Hamm (“Howl”); Ben Affleck, Tommy Lee Jones, Maria Bello, Chris Cooper and Rosemarie DeWitt (“The Company Men”); Amanda Peet and Oliver Platt (“Please Give”), plus many more.

In between these interviews, we’re hoping to check out screenings of highly anticipated festival flicks like “Get Low” (Bill Murray, Robert Duvall), “Hesher” (Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Natalie Portman) and “happythankyoumoreplease” (Malin Akerman, Josh Radnor), to name just a few.

There will also be a ton of events in the evening, from cast dinners to screening after parties. We’ll be working around the clock to bring it all to you fast, fast, fast. So keep it locked on MTV News all day and in the many days that follow as we continue to report on everything going down at 2010’s Sundance.
