Warren Beatty Emerges from 13-Year Hiatus with Howard Hughes Film

25 November 2014 10:26 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Warren Beatty has not appeared onscreen in a new film since the romantic comedy "Town and Country," a costly 2001 box office flop. But now, as revealed in the latest issue of Closer Weekly, he's been working on a new directorial effort, and has come out of retirement to turn his decades-long obsession with reclusive American tycoon Howard Hughes into a movie. The project, according to Closer, focuses on the reclusive mogul's May-December romance with a young ingenue, played by 25-year-old actress Lily Collins ("Mirror Mirror"). Tessa Farmiga, Chace Crawford, Alec Baldwin, Matthew Broderick, Martin Sheen, Candice Bergen and Beatty's wife Annette Bening also star. Matthew Broderick tells Closer that the film, which cost $27 million on a 72-day schedule, has finished shooting. The yet-to-be titled project remains shrouded in secrecy (allegedly only Collins received the full script), but one thing we know for sure is that Beatty himself, 77, will play Hughes, »

The Rise of Gugu Mbatha-Raw

24 November 2014 7:03 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Gugu Mbatha-Raw — whose name is short for Gugulethu, which is Zulu for “Our Pride” — is quickly showing her versatility as an actress portraying an 18th century aristocrat and a hip-hop star over the course of a year. Mbatha-Raw (pronounced em-bah-tah raw) has been highly praised for both roles and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Mbatha-Raw was trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London and in 2009, she starred alongside Jude Law in Hamlet on Broadway.

Prior to her stint on Broadway, she appeared in various television shows and movies, including Doctor Who in 2007.

She followed her Broadway performance with roles in the 2011 film Larry Crowne, with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts, and she played one half of the undercover husband-and-wife CIA team in NBC’s Undercovers. The show, executive produced by J.J. Abrams, was cancelled after 13 episodes. She also appeared in the first season of Touch, »

New TV Shows Could Break Into Crowded SAG Awards

20 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One thing you’ve got to hand to the SAG TV voters, they’re loyal to a fault. When it comes to the categories for individual acting, once they find someone they like, they stick with them.

Each year a host of veterans, not to mention a steady stream of series newcomers, is forced into the cold by familiar, entrenched names in comedy and drama alike.

So amidst the universal mourning for the “Breaking Bad” and “30 Rock” finales, there must have been a certain amount of secret glee among thesps. After all, the spot Bryan Cranston occupied in male actor, drama, for five consecutive years is now open for business, as are Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey’s in the comedy division, where they competed, and usually triumphed, a total of 15 times.

Opening up Cranston’s slot is particularly tantalizing, since the drama field is crowded indeed. Steve Buscemi of »

Alec Baldwin Dishes Relationship Advice In Above Average’s ‘Love Ride’

19 November 2014 12:36 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Above Average is no stranger to really amazing comedy pieces. The online video branch of Saturday Night Live’s production company Broadway Video is continuing the laugh-fest by releasing Alec Baldwin’s new relationship web series Alec Baldwin’s Love Ride. In Love Ride, Baldwin stars as an “internationally-recognized relationship expert.” The 30 Rock actor invites couples into the back of his taxi cab in New York City. Aided by behind-the-scenes love advisor and Saturday Night Live sketch writer Paula Pell, Baldwin discusses “sex, take-out food, binge-viewing Broad City,” and other elements that hold people’s relationships together. The first couple to be quizzed is Corey and Francesca. “In my life, I've always wanted to help people avoid some of the mistakes I've made,” says Baldwin to Corey and Francesca, a rather honest admission for an otherwise amusing and light-hearted web series. Love Ride is the brainchild of Baldwin, who co-produces »

Would You Take Relationship Advice from Alec Baldwin?

19 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

In addition to an award-winning actor and Wegman’s enthusiast, Alec Baldwin is also an “internationally recognized relationship expert.” In his new web series, Alec Baldwin’s Love Ride, the actor gives relationship advice to strangers in the back of a cab.

Would you take love advice from the same man who was caught using homosexual slurs while chasing down paparazzi? Just something to think about. He did manage to marry a woman who does yoga on staircases, so…

Watch the first of Baldwin’s two episodes, with couple Corey and Francesca, above. And for a look back and some of the most uncomfortable dating/relationship shows that came way before Alec was jumping into cabs with strangers, check out the gallery below.

Alec Baldwin Is Now Giving Relationship Advice in a New Web Series Called Love Ride

19 November 2014 7:30 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Would you like relationship advice from Alec Baldwin? No? Well, there's a very small chance he'll end up in your cab, giving you some anyway, like a Cash Cab adventure with absolutely no chance of winning any money. Here, he's advising a couple with Saturday Night Live's Paul Pell (!) advising him from what appears to be another cab. Baldwin: "I'm an Aries ... If everyone would just shut the fuck up and do what we tell 'em to do, the world would be a better place! Just try it." Hm, good advice. »

Alec Baldwin's latest role puts him in the back of a New York City cab — to dole out advice on love.

Best Actress Oscar Predictions 2015

17 November 2014 4:03 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

At this point, four performances are also leading the Best Actress field. 1. Julianne Moore, 53, is heartbreaking in “Still Alice,” an intimate portrait of a brainy and beautiful Columbia University professor who has everything going for her: a satisfying career, a hunky loving husband (Alec Baldwin) and three thriving grown children. When she is diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s, she and her family struggle to cope as her memories and ability to navigate her world slowly slip away.  After four nominations (two in 2002), this well-liked and respected actress has delivered the role that could win her the Oscar. Sometimes it's just the right time. Moore won Best Actress at Cannes playing an aging diva in David Cronenberg's "Maps to the Stars," but Focus Features did not step up to a proper theatrical push, shunting the film over to its digital arm Focus World, which won't be according the film »

‘Still Alice’ Review: Julianne Moore Peels Back the Layers on a Heartbreaking Disease

13 November 2014 4:30 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Alice Howland (Julianne Moore) is a beautiful, intelligent, respected, accomplished linguistics professor, but she’s also starting to forget things. Nothing big – a name or where she put something. As an academic with an insatiable desire to learn and teach, plus a bustling family who still look to her for advice and guidance, it’s not surprising that Alice might be a little distracted or overwhelmed from time to time. After she loses her place in a lecture she’s giving a UCLA, Alice decides to take the practical approach and make sure her random moments of forgetfulness are just that, but after consulting with a neurologist (Stephen Kunken) she discovers she’s suffering from the early onset of Alzheimer’s disease. For a woman who has dedicated her life to the study of language and how people communicate with one another the idea of slowly losing her memory is a fate worse than cancer. As »

The gala will be held at the Palm Springs Convention Center, and the festival runs Jan 2-12. It has grown in importance as a key campaign stop during Oscar season, with heavy industry turnout for the event. Eddie Redmayne was announced last week for an award that evening.

Sony Pictures Classics will release “Still Alice,” starring Moore, in New York and Los Angeles for a one-week qualifying run on Dec. 5. It opens Jan. 16. The pic, written and directed by Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, also stars Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth, Alec Baldwin, Hunter Parrish.

Elaine Stritch’s Final Days: ‘I Miss Me Too’

13 November 2014 9:33 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If only Elaine Stritch could have secretly attended her own funeral like Tom Sawyer, she would have witnessed a standing ovation.

In early 2013, the legendary Broadway star abandoned her longtime home of New York for Birmingham, Mich., where she underwent surgery a year later for stomach cancer, a diagnosis she never publicly revealed. After she died in July at 89, she was buried at a small service in Chicago alongside her husband, the actor John Bay.

The priest delivered an unconventional eulogy, especially when he started to warble “I Feel Pretty,” one of her signature covers from “West Side Story.” He ended his remarks by asking the attendees to give Stritch a round of applause. “We stood up and clapped,” recalls Chiemi Karasawa, the director of “Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me,” who spent two years trailing—and later befriending—the grand dame. “He wanted us to acknowledge her as a performer, because »

Julianne Moore Becomes Oscar Frontrunner!

13 November 2014 9:22 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

The whole year, I have been looking for The Oscar season frontrunner for Best Actress. I was hoping Shailene Woodley from "The Fault in Our Stars" would squeak in, but now, the lovely, talented, and ultra-sweet Julianne Moore is the one to beat!

And just this morning, the Palm Springs International Film Festival just called her The best actress of the year!

Julianne Moore Named Best Actress At Palm Springs International Film Festival

13 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Julianne Moore might be the hottest actress in the Oscar race this year, and most voters haven’t even seen her film yet. This four-time Oscar nominee and Emmy winner for Game Change is considered overdue for a win. Still Alice, in which she plays a victim of early-onset Alzheimer’s, offers her a great opportunity to finally take home that statuette, and today the Palm Springs International Film Festival announced that she will receive the Actress prize at this year’s gala on January 3. Eddie Redmayne was previously announced for the fest’s Actor prize, and both are considered front-runners in the Oscar race, so Psiff is just jumping on the bandwagon.

Every precursor award a contender can get just makes them seem more inevitable for the final win. Moore certainly is deserving, and it is looking like her year. In May, she won the Best Actress prize at »

Julianne Moore, Kristen Stewart and Maria Shriver bring 'Still Alice' home to La

13 November 2014 1:04 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hollywood — It was an emotional evening at the Egyptian Theatre Wednesday night as "Still Alice" finally came "home." Co-directors and husbands Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland are longtime Los Angelinos and the latter remarked how both men had spent many nights watching films in this same venue, which is the Hollywood home of the American Cinematheque. More importantly, this AFI Fest screening afforded Glatzer, who is in advance stages of Als, to finally see the movie on the big screen with an audience. He missed the amazing reception at the Toronto Film Festival. He missed the Rome Film Festival. He missed the Hamptons Film Festival. He was not going to miss seeing "Still Alice" in his hometown. Based on Lisa Genova's bestselling novel, "Alice" chronicles the heartbreaking progression of early on set Alzheimer's disease for Dr. Alice Howard (Julianne Moore), a 50-year-old accomplished Columbia University professor and mother of three grown children. »
