23 October 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Remember when Sting got everybody talking about his alleged marathon sex sessions? Well, even if you don’t, the man himself is here to give the details on what he thinks of "tantric sex." The former Police frontman/ringtone master is set to appear on Thursday's episode of Inside the Actors Studio with host James Lipton, and Billboard has an exclusive early peek at their conversation.

Dirty Weekend | VOD Review

22 October 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Boiler Plate Weekend: Granier-Deferre’s Familiar, Forgettable Getaway

Inappropriate lovers contending with a criminal while trapped in an isolated locale is hardly an original premise on its own and Christophe Granier-Deferre’s directorial debut, Dirty Weekend, doesn’t supply the necessary energy to make up for its familiarity. Bypassing a theatrical release altogether, even its title has been subjected to reconsideration, initially titled Le Weekend (snagged by Roger Michell for his 2013 film), Neil Labute’s Alice Eve/Matthew Broderick vehicle will most likely superimpose Granier-Deferre’s alternate, as well. Rudimentary, predictable, and sometimes a bit forced in its bid for a comedic affect, you’ll see every narrative twist and turn miles before they land.

Arriving in Normandy from England for a weekend getaway, Mike’s (Jamie Palmer) actions seem immediately suspicious, finagling a car rental with cash rather than a credit card. He’s a married teacher that’s »

Broadway box office: Michael C. Hall's 'Hedwig' scores, but Carol Burnett can't boost 'Love Letters'

20 October 2014 4:17 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It's a tale of two A-list replacements: Dexter star Michael C. Hall put on some makeup for Hedwig and the Angry Inch and kicked up $544,166 for his first six performances, according to figures from the Broadway League for the week ending Oct. 19. That's down just 4 percent per-show from what Andrew Rannells took in during his final seven shows the previous week—but it still represents an impressive 85 percent of the potential gross for the Belasco Theatre. But another high-profile substitution proved less successful: Carol Burnett, returning to Broadway for the first time in a decade, failed to lift ticket sales »

Ewan McGregor Goes From 'Star Wars' to the Stage

17 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in the Oct. 24 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. "Fame attaches to film actors in a different way," says Tom Stoppard. The revered British playwright is sitting with Scottish actor Ewan McGregor, 43, who stars opposite Maggie Gyllenhaal and Cynthia Nixon in the revival of Stoppard's The Real Thing, in previews (and filling 90 percent of seats) for a 10-week run.

Kristen Stewart Calls Hollywood Sexism “F–ked Up,” Marvel Gives a First Look at Daredevil Series + More of Today’s First Dibs

13 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Kristen Stewart is the next Hollywood starlet to sound off on feminism, Marvel unveils its new Daredevil series, Katie Holmes takes another stab at playing Jackie O., and more of today’s First Dibs.

Kristen Stewart thinks it’s “really ridiculous” to say you’re not a feminist. [E!] At New York Comic-Con, the very first footage of Marvel’s new Netflix series Daredevil premiered. [io9] Katie Holmes will return as First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in the miniseries The Kennedys: After Camelot. [Et] Matthew Broderick is totally fine with Robert Downey, Jr. reaching out to his ex, and Broderick’s wife, Sarah Jessica Parker. [Us Weekly] If you haven’t watched this vintage Dinner for Five video featuring Jennifer Garner (who was married to Scott Foley at the time) and Ben Affleck (who was engaged to Jennifer Lopez) you need to now. Jen hopelessly gazes into Ben’s eyes while the actor remains completely unfazed. »

Matthew Broderick: "Of Course" Robert Downey Jr. Can Reconnect With Sarah Jessica Parker!

12 October 2014 7:12 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

All good? Matthew Broderick is totally cool with wife Sarah Jessica Parker's ex Robert Downey Jr. reconnecting with her. The actor told Us Weekly at the opening night of his new Broadway endeavor, It's Only a Play, in New York City on Oct. 9, that, "of course" the Iron Man actor can contact his wife. It all started when Downey Jr. told Howard Stern during an interview on Oct. 7 that he'd like to reconnect with his ex-girlfriend whom he dated for seven years in the '80s.  “I’ll make a [...] »

This Week on Stage: Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, and Rupert Grint tear up the town

11 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Two buzzy new plays opened on Broadway this week. It's Only a Play, a Terrence McNally comedy reuniting Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, is proving to be anything but an only at the box office. It's averaging 1.2 million bucks per week and 101 percent attendance. The madcap sendup of Broadway roasts a lot of boldface names; one of its biggest targets -- New York Times critic Ben Brantley -- had a surprisingly good sense of humor about the depiction of himself. Also opening this week is the stateside premiere of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, based on Mark Haddon's best-selling 2003 novel. »

‘It's Only a Play’ Theater Review: Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick Remain Broadway's Funniest Team

10 October 2014 | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

If only it were a better play. After various incarnations, Terrence McNally's “It's Only a Play” has finally made it to Broadway, where it opened Thursday at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater in a production that reunites Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick. Back in 1978, this backstage comedy was called “Broadway, Broadway,” starring Geraldine Page and James Coco, and closed in tryouts in Philadelphia, where it didn't live up to its title. McNally rewrote and retitled the play for productions in the 1980s, and this latest version updates the story of a disastrous post-opening night party to the present day. A. »

'It's Only A Play' Revival Debuts With All-Star Cast

9 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

The It’s Only a Play revival hit Broadway Thursday night with Rupert Grint, Matthew Broderick, Stockard Channing and Nathan Lane all starring.

'It's Only A Play' Debut

It’s Only a Play centers on Peter Austin’s (Broderick) play’s opening night, on which he's fraught with worry that it won’t be much of a hit. Backstage, he interacts with TV star and best friend (Lane), the stage diva (Channing), a theater critic (F. Murray Abraham), the play's producer (Mullally) and his prodigious director (Grint).

Grint made his stage debut with the play, an experience that he’s found to be completely rewarding. “I was thousands of miles away from home and surrounded by people that are so experienced and really know comedy,” Rupert told the Evening Standard. 'It's not something I've really mastered, I must say, but just working with them I've learnt so much. I'm still »

'It's Only a Play': Theater Review

9 October 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

There are 26 credited producers on the Broadway production of Terrence McNally's theater-biz satire It's Only a Play, and presumably nobody will be laughing harder than those guys at the zingers about the phalanx of moneymen who now regularly mob the Radio City stage when winners are announced on Tony Awards night. The in-jokes come thick and fast in this extensively retooled revival, which has been raking in huge grosses through previews thanks to its deluxe cast. The big draw is the reteaming of Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, the adored double-act who made the Mel Brooks

Amazing Throwback Photos of the Harry Potter Cast

View Photo Gallery

Believe it or not, but it’s been nearly four years since we were blessed with a new Harry Potter film. And it’s been 13 years since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone hit theaters. Now, the actors who portrayed the beloved child wizards are all grown up. Some are movie stars. Some are television staples. And some are just plain hot.

The most recent Potter alum to hit it big is Alfred Enoch, who played Hogwarts classmate Dean Thomas in the films. Now, Enoch stars alongside Academy Award nominee Viola Davis in the hit ABC show How to Get Away with Murder. Not too shabby for the once-little Gryffindor. But, of course, he’s not the only one. Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) are two of the biggest film stars on the planet, and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) is set to »

Ferris Bueller saws into Matthew Broderick cut-out in '90s sitcom

8 October 2014 7:49 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Some movies make for great TV shows: Friday Night Lights, Parenthood, and Fargo are just a few examples of recent, successful series that were born out of big-screen versions. Other movies do not—including Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Say Anything is latest subjected to the movie-to-tv transition, although it didn't last too long—after NBC announced plans for a half-hour comedy based on the 1989 movie, Say Anything director Cameron Crowe made his objections known and within 24 hours, the show was done. And, from the looks of a clip from the TV version of Ferris Bueller that a Reddit user dug up, »

Broadway Box Office: Nathan Lane and James Earl Jones pack 'em in. Mia Farrow? Not so much

6 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It's Only a Play doesn't open until this Thursday, but the backstage comedy revival is already minting money for its producers at Broadway's Schoenfeld Theatre. The star-studded show—featuring Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Megan Mullally, F. Murray Abraham, Stockard Channing, and Harry Potter alum Rupert Grint—grossed an impressive $1.25 million for the week ending Oct. 5, according to figures from the Broadway League. That's a remarkable haul for a non-musical—and actually exceeds the potential earnings for the venue (thanks mostly to premium tickets sales and high demand).

Cinema's darkest and most unpredictable public service workers

6 October 2014 4:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The arrival of WolfCop inspires us to take a look back at horror cinema's most unpredictable janitors, doctors, dentists and more...

Can we necessarily trust the dentist who stands over us with a tiny drill in his hand? Isn't the guy who's come round to install our cable television service just a bit too friendly for comfort? And the cop outside in his squad car - isn't he just a little bit, I don't know, hairy?

Some of cinema's darkest, most unpredictable and downright interesting characters often have the most mundane jobs, from teachers to photo developers and taxi drivers to school janitors. It's characters like these we're saluting here - some of them villainous, others strangely likeable despite their dark activities, while others are simply misunderstood.

So here's our pick of the most terrifying public sector workers in horror cinema, inspired by the imminent release of WolfCop - director »

October 3th, 2014, 6:34pm– We are getting spoiled these days with some amazing Rupert Grint news and it seems like we might just have a lot more amazingness coming up. Tonight, The Mirror has released a brand new interview they have done with Rupert and we learn so many new lovely things about him – this interview touches on anything from money, new pets, a potential girlfriend and even religion. Below is an endearing quote about a new girl in Rupert‘s life: Despite the obvious lure of Hollywood – and he is chatting from a rented apartment in Manhattan – Rupert has no plans to up sticks and leave the UK for good. “I like England – it’s my home,” he says. Helping him feel at home in the Big Apple is a new addition to the Grint household – a tortoise called Madeleine. She’s not named after anyone in particular (no money-grabbing ex-girlfriend? »

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

1 October 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

Denzel Washington's 5 best movies? Training Day, Man on Fire, more

28 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Denzel Washington is back on the big screen this week, reuniting with Training Day director Antoine Fuqua for tough-as-nails thriller The Equalizer.

A two-time Academy Award-winner (with a further four nominations under his belt), Washington has achieved just about all there is to achieve in his glittering Hollywood career. Picking out his five best movies is a tricky job, but we've attempted to do it anyway. Read on to find out which Denzel movies we think are the absolute essentials...

Glory (1989)

Edward Zwick's American Civil War drama starred Washington as Private Silas Trip, a soldier in the first Union Army unit to be made up entirely of African-American men. Washington stole the movie from its leading man Matthew Broderick, and bagged a Supporting Actor Oscar win for his troubles. He was nominated two years prior for playing activist Steve Biko in Cry Freedom, but this was the movie that »

Hollywood Heads to Broadway

16 September 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Every year, the glittering lights and unique experience of Broadway lures Hollywood actors to the East Coast; some are veterans of the stage and others are making their Broadway debut. Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), James Franco (This is the End) and Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) all made their Broadway debuts earlier this year, with O’Dowd receiving a Tony nomination for Of Mice and Men and Cranston winning a Tony for All The Way. Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), who hadn’t been on Broadway since his 2004 run in Assassins, scored his first Tony nomination and win for Hedwig and the Angry Inch this summer.

The Broadway lineup for the end of the year hosts a number of Hollywood actors making their Broadway debuts, and they are joined by an illustrious group of Broadway vets returning to the stage.
