The biggest names on the Cannes Film Festival jury this year are Kate Beckinsale and Benicio Del Toro—sure, they're major, but they're the only big celebrity names on board. Along with jury president Tim Burton, Beckinsale and Del Toro will pass judgement on a group of "mainly unknown actors," says WWD. Both Woody Allen and Michael Douglas will be at Cannes, but are not competing. [WWD]
