Get ready for an onslaught of "art" reflecting life on the the silver (and small) screen. "The Postgrad" is one upcoming film dealing with a recent college grad who can’t find a job. And Amanda Bynes has joined the cast of the ABC pilot "Canned" which centers around young people who, you guessed it, can’t find jobs. There are even talks being held for a sequel to "Wall Street" starring Shia LaBeouf.
