    Is there anyone out there who has anything bad to say about working with Brad Pitt?

    If so, we certainly haven't found them...

    "He really is as nice as he seems," actor Richard Jenkins told me last night at South by Southwest's very rainy premiere of The Cabin in the Woods at the Paramount Theatre in Austin.

    Jenkins and Pitt have made a few films together, including the upcoming Cogan's Tale. "He's just a guy trying to act the best he can and do the best he can," Jenkins said. "He's incredibly sweet and funny. He's more interested in you being good than himself."

    Now more on Cabin in Woods—it's a horror flick cowritten by geek god Joss Whedon and Lost veteran Drew Goddard, who makes his directorial debut with the movie. The cast includes Jenkins, Chris Hemsworth, Grey's Anatomy's Jesse Williams and Bradley Whitford along with newcomers Kristen Connolly and Anna Hutchison.

    Goddard and Whedon (as well the studio, Lionsgate) have asked audiences not to reveal too much because Cabin (in theaters April 13) really is all about the surprises and reveals.

    But I will tell you that Hemsworth (aka, Thor!) appears shirtless. "He's easy on the eyes," Connolly smiled. "But he's also terrific and he's fun and a wonderful, wonderful guy." (PS: Mr. Williams and Ms. Hutchison also look pretty darn good without their shirts on.)

    Meanwhile, you probably know by now that Whedon directed the upcoming superhero ensemble The Avengers (out May 4). He confirmed he's already thought about a sequel. "As always the brain has places it thinks it might go," Whedon teased.

    As for Mr. Goddard, his script adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson's novel Robopocalypse is set to be directed by...Steven Spielberg!
