Here's today's lineup:

Mark Seliger has a thing for faces

(Starts at 7:41)

In his more than 30 years behind the camera, Mark Seliger has taken photos of everyone from the Dalai Lama and Barack Obama to Fleetwood Mac and Kurt Cobain. Seliger spent 10 years as the chief photographer for Rolling Stone magazine and another decade shooting for Vanity Fair, GQ and other Conde Nast magazines. But Seliger's work isn't just focused on world leaders, celebrities, comedians and rockstars. He's also documented real-life people as well — from first 9/11 responders on Ground Zero to the transgender community in New York City. A new book called "Mark Seliger Photographs" includes a wide range of photographs from his career. He recently spoke with The Frame's John Horn.

Venice to Toronto: the first stops on the path to movie awards season 

(Starts at :45)

The Venice and Toronto film festivals have announced their lineups. Both events will include the remake of “A Star Is Born,” starring Lady Gaga alongside the film’s director, Bradley Cooper, and Damien Chazelle’s follow-up to “La La Land,” the astronaut drama “First Man” starring Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong. Toronto will debut Barry Jenkins' follow-up to "Moonlight," an adaptation of James Baldwin's "If Beale Street Could Talk."

Guest: Los Angeles Times reporter Mark Olsen

But reporter Rachael Myrow asks: With all this focus on the new, what happens to all the old, classic stuff?
