Who Should Direct Alec Baldwin in the Pilot of HBO's New Political Drama?

3 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

As Deadline reported late yesterday, Alec Baldwin has signed on as the star and executive producer of HBO's as-yet-untitled political drama. In the series, written by the award-winning Wells Tower, Baldwin plays Joe Byrne, an affluent real estate developer thrust into the spotlight when he becomes the mayor of New York City. Described by Deadline's Mike Fleming as an effort to "hit the tone of the lightest and most entertaining episodes of 'The Sopranos'," the series sounds like fresh competition for Netflix's "House of Cards," CBS' "The Good Wife," and ABC's "Scandal." For now, though, HBO, Baldwin, and Baldwin's co-executive producer, Cary Brokaw, have yet to decide on which director will helm the pilot. Toh! offers a few options for the premium network to consider: David Fincher David Fincher may have convinced himself that "The Girl Who Played with Fire," his follow up to "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, »

Still Alice review – moving meditation on who we really are

13 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Featuring Julianne Moore’s Oscar-winning performance, this story of a woman with early-onset Alzheimer’s is affecting and thoroughly worthwhile

This inexpressibly painful and sad film from Wash Westmoreland and Richard Glatzer is about a woman who declines steeply into early-onset Alzheimer’s just after her 50th birthday, and somehow becomes a ghost haunting her own life.

It features a queenly, poignant and much-garlanded lead performance from Julianne Moore as linguistics professor Alice Howland. She begins the movie at the triumphant height of her career, enjoying a happy life with her husband John (Alec Baldwin), prosperous empty-nesters in a sumptuous New York home. They have three lovely grownup children: Tom (Hunter Parrish), Anna (Kate Bosworth) and Lydia (Kristen Stewart). The only problem in Alice’s life appears to be her strained relationship with Lydia, who has rejected college to be a struggling actor in Los Angeles.

Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground. As explained in the Los Angeles Times, "fire officials would not identify the victim of the crash but said he was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived." Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »

Alec Baldwin To Star in HBO Show

21 hours ago | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Just when you expected HBO to not get more “trashy”, Alec Baldwin is heading their way. Yes, the controversial actor will be returning to TV for a new production that remains to be untitled. He will play the mayor of NYC, Joe Byrne. He will be a very rich and talked about man of NYC who finds himself being thrusted upon the role of mayor after their former one is no longer able to do the job. The show is expected to have darker plots, but they will also keep those more in check. It will star filming in September on location. No word yet on when the show will premier.

From the description of Alec’s role, it sort of sounds based off of Donald Trump. It will be interesting to see if his team picks up on this and to see if they do anything to throw the show off tracks. »

Still Alice review: Julianne Moore's Oscar-winning performance

5 March 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Richard Glatzer, Wash Westmoreland; Screenwriters: Richard Glatzer, Wash Westmoreland; Starring: Julianne Moore, Kristen Stewart, Alec Baldwin, Kate Bosworth, Hunter Parrish; Running time: 101 mins; Certificate: 12A

Julianne Moore recently won her first Oscar out of four nominations for this up-close portrait of a 50-year-old woman with early onset Alzheimer's disease. It's a performance beautifully coloured with varying shades of emotion that also makes clever use of her porcelain looks to evoke the vulnerability of the eponymous Alice.

Lisa Genova, the neuroscientist on whose novel the film is based, had the advantage of being able to tell the story from Alice's own fractured perspective, but the way that inner landscape shifts isn't so easily captured on screen by co-writer/directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland. They take a neat, linear approach to Alice's mental decline that is at odds with the way she is experiencing the world around her. Essentially, Moore »
