Sundance Film Review: ‘The Hero’

8 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If a 60-foot saguaro cactus could talk, it would almost certainly sound like Sam Elliott. At 72 years old, the lanky character actor has played his share of bikers, hippies, and cowboys, but never the hero — at least, never on the level of Lee Hayden, the faded-glory Western star he portrays in Brett Haley’s “The Hero.” This affectionately crafted project offers Elliott the most substantial big-screen role of his career, though sadly, that’s not saying an awful lot for an actor who was passed over to play Indiana Jones, and is instead best known for drawling such catchphrases as “The Dude abides” and “Beef: It’s what for dinner.”

Fortunately for Elliott, “The Hero” targets those old enough to remember his early roles (like the clean-shaven card sharp in the opening scene of “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,”) and particularly memorable later ones (the silver-‘stashed seducer in »

Tom Holland Makes One Bold Claim About His Spider-Man

20 January 2017 10:25 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Whenever a new actor is cast as an iconic character, there will naturally be comparisons of the new actor, and those who have come before. Fans engaged in heated debates over which Batman was better, Christian Bale or Ben Affleck, and which Joker delivered the definitive performance, Jared Leto, Heath Ledger, or Jack Nicholson. These comparisons started sprouting up again when Tom Holland was cast as Spider-Man, making his debut in last summer's Captain America: Civil War, leading into this summer's stand alone adventure Spider-Man: Homecoming. Tom Holland just threw some new fuel on this comparative fire, claiming that his Peter Parker could beat up those Peter Parker's who came before him, played by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.

When Tom Holland made his debut as the web slinger in the Marvel blockbuster Captain America: Civil War, he became the third actor in the past 14 years to play Peter Parker/Spider-Man. »

Jack Nicholson ‘Basically Retired,’ According to Good Friend Peter Fonda

19 January 2017 7:09 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jack Nicholson will turn 80 this spring, and though the last movie he did came out in 2010, he has never officially retired. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t retired, according to Peter Fonda, with whom Nicholson has been close since the two made “Easy Rider.”

“I think he is ­basically retired,” Fonda told Page Six at this month’s BAFTA Awards Season Tea Party, held annually in Los Angeles. “I don’t want to speak for him, but he has done a lot of work and he has done very well as a person financially.”

Four years ago, rumors circulated that the actor was slowing down due to memory loss, but those claims were swiftly denied by his representatives. “Sometimes ­people have a reason that you don’t know, and it’s not for me to ask,” said Fonda. »

Has Jack Nicholson Officially Retired After 60 Years in Hollywood?

18 January 2017 3:40 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in 2010, three-time Oscar-winning actor Jack Nicholson starred in two movies, playing himself in the faux documentary I'm Still Here, and the failing businessman and father Charles Madison in How Do You Know. Unfortunately for fans of the legendary icon, those were his last two movies, and there have been rumors in the past that he was retired from acting, with one report from 2013 claiming the actor was suffering from memory loss, although the actor's reps shot down that report, claiming that he is looking at scripts and trying to figure out what his next project may be. It's been more than three years since that report surfaced, and we haven't heard about any new Jack Nicholson project. But now one of the actor's closest friends believes he has actually retired.

The Sun caught up with Peter Fonda, who starred alongside Jack Nicholson in the 1969 classic Easy Rider, and has »

A Look Back at Meryl Streep’s Record-Setting 30 Golden Globe-Nominated Roles

7 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Everyone talks about Meryl Streep’s record-setting number of Academy Award nominations, but perhaps even more impressive is the number of Golden Globe Award nominations she’s received: 30, as of this year, with her latest nod for Florence Foster Jenkins.  

In fact, the Hollywood Foreign Press seems to be so enamored with Streep that they’ll give her a nomination for pretty much anything (even Mamma Mia!). And now, they’re finally giving her the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in motion pictures.

In honor of Streep’s incredible feat — only Jack Lemmon has even come close, with »

Om Puri obituary

6 January 2017 7:42 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Film actor successful in Hollywood and Bollywood, best known in Britain for East Is East

The actor Om Puri, who has died aged 66 from a heart attack, exuded a reassuring warmth and gravitas over a long career divided largely between Bollywood and Hollywood. His Hindi hits included the political comedy Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro (1983), the Macbeth-inspired drama Maqbool (2003), the action romp Singh Is Kinng (2008) and the thrillers Don (2006) and Don 2 (2011). Appearances in two Mike Nichols films – he shared a scene with Jack Nicholson in Wolf (1994) and starred with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts in Charlie Wilson’s War (2007), in which he was very wry as President Zia-ul-Haq – were among the Us roles that followed his brief English-language debut in Gandhi (1982). He credited his more prominent part in Roland Joffe’s City of Joy (1992), where he was a struggling farmer who befriends a doctor (Patrick Swayze) in Calcutta, with increasing »

14 of the Wildest Golden Globe Moments Ever

4 January 2017 1:22 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The Golden Globes has long held a reputation as the loosey-goosey younger sibling of the Academy Awards. Maybe it’s because it’s the start of awards show season, and stars aren’t yet tired of the red carpet grind. Or maybe it’s just become a self-fulfilling prophecy of the show that celebrities are going to get a little silly, but for whatever reason, the Globes annually seem to give us more double-take moments than most Hollywood spectacles. Let’s look at some of our favorites.
