30 Rock might be over, but Tina Fey just can't get away from Alec Baldwin! On Wednesday's Late Night With Seth Meyers, the This Is Where I Leave You star talked about daughter Alice's surprise birthday party and how Jack Donaghy somehow made an appearance. "We had this whole thing of dress up and have a disguise," said Tina, who admitted it's "so easy" to surprise a 9-year-old. So Mama Fey "got all these wigs and things and like a generic mask and whatever." "But then I got the pictures back," she said, "and what had appeared to be a generic—I thought just like a generic man mask—in all the pictures [it] looks exactly like Alec »
Memo To Phil Griffin:
For several years now your liberal bastion, MSNBC, has been assuring us that it’s resolutely “leaning forward,” but slogans can be dangerous — especially for a news operation that appears to be listing backward.
These are exciting times in the news business, with headlines popping around the world, elections looming in the U.S. and most news organizations shuffling staffs and schedules. Yet NBC News president Deborah Turness, fresh from the U.K.’s ITV, suggested the other day that some segments of the news business had “gone to sleep.”
I don’t know which operation she was referring to, but here’s some wake-up news, Phil. Your ratings are lousy, and your pundits seem bored by their own pontification. Two of your most dynamic newsies, Chuck Todd and Joe Scarborough, apparently are taking refuge at your parent network.
The bottom line, Phil, is that »

Thn are pleased to share the news that renowned independent distributor Odyssey DVD is re-launching in the UK and returns with a fantastic slate of cult and classic films. Including box office hits and all-star casts, the first six films are Grey Owl, Glengarry Glen Ross, Drums Along The Mohawk, Electra Glide In Blue, Dirty Mary Crazy Larry and Julia, released through September to October.
Up first is the still astonishingly-impressive Glengarry Glen Ross (1992), with the all-star cast of Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alan Arkin, Ed Harris, Kevin Spacey, and Alec Baldwin. The acclaimed film is based upon David Mamet’s award-winning and follows a group of desperate real estate agents in Chicago. Think of it as a low-key Margin Call or Wolf Of Wall Street of its day. When a hotshot executive (Alec Baldwin) from the head office arrives and proposes a vicious sales competition, in which the losers are fired, »

One of the most notable Hollywood trends of late is the way in which studios have gravitated towards dystopian stories situated within an all-encompassing battle arena. From The Hunger Games to the soon-to-be-released The Maze Runner, it appears as though these productions are channeling a barbaric spectatorship that harkens back to the Roman Empire and the blood-drenched days of the Colosseum.
Speaking of the core concept behind the upcoming sci-fi adventure, Andrew Iervolino, Ambi Pictures Group’s producer — the company behind the film — stated that recruiting the likes of Glover and Baldwin only elevate the production to new heights.

Based on a popular novel by Lisa Genova, Still Alice is a weepy portrait of a linguistic professor, Dr. Alice Howland, battling early onset alzheimers shortly after turning 50 years old. Boasting a cast that includes Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth and the always electric Julianne Moore, above all else this is a film that leans on strong performances. This is not a film about script, ideas or even direction, it is about the intimacy of faces and the passion of performers.
Still Alice falls into the “social problem” genre, exploring the crippling and devastating effects that Alzheimer’s has. As North American society grows older, we have been told that Alzheimer’s will increasingly be a medical issue that needs to be addressed. Much like Cancer, nearly everyone is »

With the NFL making headlines this week in all the wrong ways, Roger Goodell is probably none too happy to hear that an untitled, Ridley Scott-produced drama about football concussions is moving forward. Recently, Drive actor Albert Brooks joined the film, which is already set to star Will Smith and Alec Baldwin. Additionally, Belle actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who has never been hotter thanks to an acclaimed turn in Beyond the Lights, is in talks for a major role in the project, though specifics on her part have not been revealed.
Brooks, who will next appear in the buzzy J.C. Chandor period drama A Most Violent Year, is set to portray Cyril Wecht. As per Deadline, Wecht is the “chief forensic pathologist who mentors forensic neuropathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu (Smith) and encourages him to press his discovery of Cte, the concussion syndrome that has been fatal in contributing to the »

The final Tiff feature review. Whew, 25 films screened and written up. And all by closing night! Please give me a round of applause in the comments. I've never been this successful at managing a festival and comments are the only way I know you're appreciating it.
When we first meet Dr Alice Howland in this fine film adapated from the bestseller by Lisa Genova, she is celebrating her 50th birthday. She's happily married to Dr. John Howland (Alec Baldwin) with three grown children whom she adores though she isn't exactly a perfect mother or wife, at least as defined by your typical movie woman, in which case she'd be inordinately obsessed with her husband and children's particulars. In fact, she almost entirely defines herself by her own career and skills (imagine that!) as a respected linguistics professor. She values articulate communication and higher education and maybe she isn't super imaginative about other forms of expression. »

“The story of Andron is enough to excite sci-fi fans worldwide but when you add actors like Alec Baldwin and Danny Glover, the meter rises even higher and audiences expect something very special, which is what we plan to deliver,” said Iervolino.

This is an intriguing one. Ambi Pictures (run by the exotically-named Andrea Iervolino and Lady Monika Bacardi) are making a sci-fi action movie about young people in peril called Andron and to lend heft to their project they have signed a couple of acting heavyweights to bolster the cast, namely Alec Baldwin and Danny Glover. The plot, that reads like Ya variation on Cube, sees a group of photogenics trapped in a labyrinthine network from which they must use their loaves in order to unlock its secrets and ultimately survive. Throw in what sounds like a reality TV element and you’re left with a derivative but hopefully engrossing film that won’t exactly be hurt by having Baldwin and Glover on board.

Tyler Hoechlin ("Teen Wolf"), Blake Jenner ("Glee") and Wyatt Russell ("22 Jump Street") have reportedly been offered the leading roles in "Boyhood" director Richard Linklater's baseball-themed next film "That’s What I’m Talking About".
Set in 1980, the story follows a college freshman who moves into the baseball house at his college and experiences a fraternity like lifestyle with his hard partying teammates. Each of the trio has an offer to play one of the lead baseball players in the film which is said to have the same tone as Linklater's classic "Dazed and Confused". [Source: Deadline]

There were a few films that played Toronto that I, regretfully, missed. One of which was Still Alice from directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland starring Julianne Moore, Kristen Stewart, Alec Baldwin, Kate Bosworth and Hunter Parrish. It appears, however, I won't have to wait long to see it for myself as Sony Pictures Classics has acquired North American rights to the film and it will see a fall 2014 release of some kind. It was previously assumed Maps to the Stars would serve as a possible Oscar bid for Julianne Moore after she won Best Actress at Cannes for her role in what is actually a terrible film, but with Focus World acquiring that film and pushing the release date to 2015 the chance for an Oscar nomination were dashed. Well, reviews for Still Alice out of the Toronto Film Festival were very good and with the Sony Classics acquisition a »

Focus World's abrupt 2015 placement of Cronenberg's "Maps to the Stars" isn't keeping Cannes Best Actress winner Julianne Moore out of the Oscar game. She's back in the races with "Still Alice," Sony Pictures Classics' first Tiff buy and an awards usher for Moore, who plays a professor beset by early onset Alzheimer's. "Still Alice" reunites writer-directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland ("The Last of Robin Hood") and it costars Alec Baldwin, Kate Bosworth, Hunter Parrish and Kristen Stewart, for whom word is also strong. Moore has been nominated for four Academy Awards for "Boogie Nights," "The End of the Affair," and both "The Hours" and "Far From Heaven" in 2003. In a not-so-competitive year entrance into the race is easier. She is ready to win her first Oscar. Spc plans an awards season release for "Still Alice." Reviews, and clip, below. Critics say this is a »
