Tim Roth gets key role at Cannes Film Festival
(CBS/AP) PARIS - Festival organizers say actor and director Tim Roth will head the jury for the Cannes Film Festival's "Un Second Regard" competition.
The panel led by the 50-year-old Briton, perhaps best known for his roles in Quentin Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs" and "Pulp Fiction" will view 20 movies that will be selected for the contest.
The secondary "Un Certain Regard" competition was set up in 1978 to recognize aesthetics and original ideas in film. The prize will be awarded May 26.
Satirical Italian filmmaker Nanni Moretti heads the jury for the overall Cannes Film Festival, which runs May 16-27 in the French Riviera resort town.
