Is that you, Leonardo DiCaprio? While the 39-year-old actor may have shot to Hollywood heartthrob status after he appeared in the 1997 film Titanic, the Wolf of Wall Street star appears to have undergone a bit of a transformation as of late. Namely, he's morphing into Jack Nicholson. DiCaprio was snapped on the beach on Sunday playing volleyball with his 21-year-old girlfriend Toni Garrn, where he was photographed looking like the spitting image of the 77-year-old Oscar winner—so much so that one might easily do a double take. The Inception star was seen wearing his hair in an unkempt style similar to Nicholson's and even sported a goatee identical to the iconic thesp. He also rocked »
He's not just a music legend, Lou Adler is also an L.A. Lakers mega-fan -- who's plugged in to all things Purple and Gold -- and the guy tells TMZ Sports 'Melo ain't gonna sign with the Lake Show. Of course, Adler is the guy who's always sitting courtside with Jack Nicholson -- and together, they're considered Lakers royalty. So, if anyone really knows what's really going on behind the scenes -- it's this guy ... who, »

Even if you've never set foot in the San Diego Convention Center for Comic-Con, you likely know that there are always a healthy number of surprises that aren't listed on the already-massive schedule. Last year, Warner Bros. dropped perhaps one of the biggest bombs in Con history, by simply unveiling a logo, the merging of Batman and Superman's iconic symbols that let everyone know the forthcoming Man of Steel sequel was, in fact, something much, much greater: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Marvel did the same thing last year as well, with Joss Whedon announcing that the Marvel's The Avengers sequel will be titled Avengers: Age of Ultron, thus revealing the main villain in the same breath.
Way back in 2008, my first year attending Sdcc, I was covering what I thought to be a rather innocuous Disney panel. Keep in mind, this is years before Disney had Marvel and LucasFilm in their stable. »
Hugo Blick returns to television tonight with BBC Two's The Honourable Woman - a new eight-part thriller starring Maggie Gyllenhaal as Nessa Stein, the daughter of an arms dealer caught up in an international political crisis.
In his 25-plus years in the business, Blick has led a long, varied and deeply interesting career - penning some of British television's best and most ground-breaking comedies and dramas and even branching out into acting.
Digital Spy presents Blick's career highlights - from a surprising debut to his noirish masterpiece.
Even ardent fans of Blick's work might be surprised to learn that he made his screen debut not as a writer but an actor, portraying the younger version of Jack Nicholson's Napier - alias the Joker - in Tim Burton's gothic big-screen take on the Dark Knight.
Blick appears only briefly in the film, but with that broad, sinister grin and icy blue eyes, »
A lot has changed since the first episode of “The Seinfeld Chronicles” debuted 25 years ago — least of all the show's name. When the show about nothing premiered on July 5, 1989, the first George Bush was president and Jack Nicholson was the Joker. Paula Abdul was the country's biggest-selling musical act. A gallon of gas cost $1.12. The Berlin Wall still stood. See photos: ‘Seinfeld’ at 25: What's Changed and What Hasn't Since 1989 In its first airing, Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David‘s sitcom had an 8.0 rating. That was good enough to make it the No. 14 show of »

Ja from Mnpp here - I know I'm among my people here at The Film Experience when I stand up in front of you all, tap the mic, clear my throat, and admit that I, Jason Adams, being somewhat sound of mind and body (okay that part's questionable), am straight-up no-holds-barred infatuationally addicted to an actress. Her name is Elizabeth Anne Caplan, she goes by Lizzy, and she is basically everything. How could anyone say anything mean about Amy Adams, right? Adorable, kind, nose-wrinkling Amy Adams? Well I would roll Amy Adams up feet-first and stick her in an envelope and mail her to Timbuktu never to be heard from again if that meant I would get to see Lizzy Caplan play Lois Lane in a Superman movie. That's where we stand.
So today is my beloved's 32nd birthday, and so we're giving her today's "Beauty Vs. Beast" poll. I'm »
Now what would the movies be like if everybody on the big screen was a conformist and blandly played by the rules?

In Trouble With a Cause: The Top 10 Movie Rebels let us take a look at some of the on-screen troublemakers with a taste for colorful turmoil, shall we?

Bill Murray became a movie star 35 years ago this week, upon the release of "Meatballs" on June 29, 1979. His lead role as the head counselor at a sub-par summer camp marked a number of firsts: his first of four movies with director Ivan Reitman (the others were "Stripes" and the two "Ghostbusters"), his first of six movies with writer Harold Ramis (the four Reitman films, plus "Caddyshack" and "Groundhog Day"), and his first taste of mega-stardom beyond his TV fame on "Saturday Night Live."
Since then, his career has taken on a trajectory unique in the history of film, one in which he's gone from comic goofball to dramatic thespian, from universally beloved to acquired taste, and from manic cynic to soft-spoken spiritual seeker. Through it all, however, there have been a few constants; no matter whether he's a grubby groundskeeper or a morose mogul: Murray's character is always the coolest »

He played cotton-gin owners, military officers, monsignors, rabbis, truck drivers, Shakespearean heroes — even a Batman villain. But Eli Wallach, who passed away at age 98 due to causes unknown, is best known to a generation of moviegoers as the ultimate bandolero-wearing bandito, thanks to two iconic roles: Calvera, the leader of the frontier thugs who terrorize a Mexican village in The Magnificent Seven (1960); and Tuco, the "ugly" of Sergio Leone's epic Spaghetti Western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966). When you think of a stubbled outlaw villain, the kind »
Eli Wallach Dies
Wallach’s death was confirmed by a family member to CNN.
Over the course of his storied career, Wallach accumulated more that 150 film credits. In addition to 60s Westerns The Magnificent Seven and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, he starred in The Misfits, Lord Jim, Tour Guys, The Two Jakes, The Godfather: Part III and The Holiday. His last major motion picture was 2013’s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.
Though film paid the bills, Wallach’s passion was the theatre. “For actors, movies are a means to an end," Wallach told The New York Times in 1973. "I go »
This week our collective minds are swimming in a pool of Batman nostalgia, as Tim Burton's Batman turns 25. We're watching old behind-the-scenes videos, complaining about Jack Nicholson's over-the-top performance and remembering how it completely changed the game in terms of movie merchandising and marketing. Additionally, with San Diego Comic-Con only a few weeks away, folks are starting to anticipate the first footage of Ben Affleck as the new big-screen Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which arrives on May 6, 2016. See Affleck as the Bat-dude above. Of course that's not quite enough Batman for one week (especially for you Bat-nerds out there), and so definitely check out this funny animated video that imagines other stars as Batman in future...

Yep, Gordon Ramsay is serving shades of Jack Nicholson’s classic, terrifying Jack Torrance busting through the bathroom door — only in this case, without the axe (and the corresponding murderous intentions).
According to Fox, Ramsay’s actual Season 2 mission will find him checking into — and attempting to reinvent – “an Oregon inn run by hippies where all night partying kept »
Today marks the 25th anniversary of Tim Burton's 1989 film Batman. This movie was so awesome, and I personally think it still holds up today. I watched this movie again a couple months ago and was entertained from beginning to end. It was a true comic book movie. I got a chance to see the movie on opening day at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood. It was actually my first time seeing a movie in the legendary theater, and I still remember the experience of walking in and being wowed by how big it was, and there was a huge Batman symbol projecting on the curtains of the screen. It was a great day, and an amazing movie. Christopher Nolan himself called it "...a brilliant film, visionary and extraordinarily idiosyncratic...".
As a way to pay tribute to the film, I've come up with 10 fun bits of trivia that you might not know about it. »

Today marks the 25th anniversary of the release of “Batman,” a movie that is much beloved by much of the Hitfix staff, not only for Tim Burton’s dystopian vision of Gotham, but for Prince’s outrageously dynamic soundtrack and Danny Elfman's ominous score. Five years after Prince’s magnum opus, “Purple Rain”—and two years after the less-said-about-it-better “Under the Cherry Moon”—Prince’s songs for “Batman” became as synonymous with the movie as Michael Keaton’s doleful Batman and Jack Nicholson’s over-the-top Joker. Using Prince, who recorded for Warner Bros., provided nice synergy between the film studio and the record label. Of course, by 1989, quite a few movies had featured soundtracks composed by one act: Simon & Garfunkel and “The Graduate,” Curtis Mayfield and “Superfly,” and Bob Dylan and “Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid,” to name a few. Not only was Prince's soundtrack a perfect fit for the movie, »
