Does He­len Mir­ren have any plans to re­tire? I hope not!

—Lane C., Spring­field, Mo.

A: The Lon­don-born ac­tress, 71, has sev­eral films lined up. First, she plays “Death” in Col­lat­eral Beauty, in the­aters Dec. 16, star­ring Will Smith as a man who suf­fers a great tragedy and seeks an­swers by writ­ing let­ters to the uni­verse. And she’s work­ing on her role for next spring’s Fast 8, the lat­est in­stall­ment of the Fast & Fu­ri­ous fran­chise, along­side Vin Diesel, Dwayne John­son, Ja­son Statham and Kurt Rus­sell. What qual­i­fies her to be among such mo­tor-heads? “I’m prob­a­bly one of the few peo­ple on the set who know how to drive a gear-shift car,” she says. I re­cently saw Neil Young per­form. Was his new al­bum recorded live dur­ing his con­cert tour?

—Nina H., Tel­luride, Co.

A: No. Peace Trail, the 38th stu­dio al­bum (re­leased Dec. 9) by the for­mer Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young band mem­ber, is pri­mar­ily acous­tic and re­flects the life­long hu­man­i­tar­ian and global con­cerns of the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, 71. He’s been pre­view­ing some of its songs dur­ing his live con­cert ap­pear­ances.
