Everyone has a regrettable first job or two, but how many of you took photos in your hideous fast food uniforms? Celebrities are people, too, and that means there are at least one or two embarrassing skeletons in their closet. Sure, Angelina Jolie would rather talk about saving the world or adopting another child, but before Billy Bob and Girl Interrupted she was just another Los Angeles teen with model shots burning a hole in her messenger bag. And she’s not alone!
In 1998 current Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon was the hot new thing on Saturday Night Live–so much so that Calvin Klein hired him to play the role of “mysteriously aloof slash bloated handsome dude” in an ad campaign. But whose vintage pics are the most embarrassing? Well, that’s up for debate.

Director: Jeff Nichols
Writer: Jeff Nichols
U.S. Distributor: Warner Bros.
Just as his filmmaker buddy David Gordon Green did before him, Jeff Nichols is now sitting on the type of project that will see him bring out his inner geek. Having mentioned in an interview that he hopes to bring out some ’80s John Carpenter, Nicholas is moving into sci-fi drama after having successfully mastered subgenres in Shotgun Stories, Take Shelter and more recently, Mud.
Gist: A father and son go on the run after the dad learns his child possesses special powers.
Release Date: Currently filming with post-production to begin later this month, Nichols could in fact spend a great deal of time in post pushing WB to date this for 2015. We’re hoping for a late in the race showing.

Put a bird on your television set, because the new season of Portlandia starts Thursday night. Created by former Saturday Night Live star and current Late Night with Seth Meyers bandleader Fred Armisen, rock-and-roller Carrie Brownstein and director Jonathan Krisel, the quirky sketch-comedy show returns for a fourth season of fun at 10/9c on IFC. Set in a world inspired by Portland, Ore., the show is filled with eccentric characters, primarily played by Armisen and Brownstein outfitted in an assortment of wigs and costumes that rivals the collection owned by the Soviet spies on The Americans. The residents of Portlandia include feminist bookstore owners, »

The Arsenio Hall Show has been renewed for a second season.
Justin Hartley has joined the cast of the ABC comedy pilot Damaged Goods. The pilot, from Awkward. creator Lauren Iungerich, is a relationship comedy about two damaged men and two damaged women with Hartley playing a man who can’t handle his girlfriend getting the promotion he was pursuing. I think I prefer to see him playing a guy who is dating an tech billionaire with a vengeful pal.
In a sadly unsurprising development, the Biography channel is revamping into Fyi Network, which will feature upscale lifestyle programming.
Empire, the hip-hop drama pilot from Lee Daniels and Danny Strong, added to its cast Person of Interest alum Taraji P. Henson. She’ll play the wife of the drama’s music mogul, a woman who has done prison time for selling drugs to keep her husband’s music label »

Time to party like it's 1999, y'all! It's been 15 years since millennium-themed proms were all the rage and just as long since the boom of the teen movie.

Let's take a walk down memory lane with these unique gems from a great year. Source: Columbia Pictures View Slideshow › »

With the 2014 Academy Awards just two weeks away, Indiewire decided to compile a list of the film roles that established the careers of these immensely talented actresses. While some of the nominees have been in the game for decades, others got started not too long ago. Here they are in their debut roles: Amy Adams, Nominated for "American Hustle" - "Drop Dead Gorgeous" (1999) An aspiring dancer at first, Amy Adams got her big break in "Drop Dead Gorgeous," a dark comedy that follows a group of contestants who compete in a beauty pageant--and suddenly start to die. Shot in the style of a mockumentary, the film also stars Kirsten Dunst, Ellen Barkin, Kirstie Alley, Allison Janney and Denise Richards. With such a dynamic cast, Adams managed to still stand out in her role as Leslie Miller, a kindhearted, clumsy and somewhat promiscuous cheerleader who also competes for the prize. Cate Blanchett, »

From his modest start in that ramshackle cabin in the woods what must seem like a lifetime ago, Sam Raimi has become one of the more versatile and beloved directors in Hollywood. With Scream Factory's Blu-ray release of Darkman today, we bring you our Top 9 Sam Raimi Films - Horror and Otherwise.
We're going to keep this list to films directed by Raimi. If we were to include the movies he's acted in, or god forbid produced, we'd be here all night. But a few of his production credits like 30 Days of Night, both of The Grudge films, Boogeyman, The Possession, Timecop and of course the Evil Dead remake are noteworthy.
Some honorable directorial mentions include his most recent, Oz the Great and Powerful. It might not have been the epic it was billed to be, but it looked fantastic; and when you manage to haul in half a billion »

It's like reading Playboy for the articles -- Kirsten Dunst went to a New Orleans strip club Saturday night for the drinks and conversation ... paying Zero attention to the naked girls shaking their asses on stage.The "Spider-Man" actress hit up Rick's Saloon -- which flew in extra dancers from V-Live Club in Houston just for All-Star Weekend -- but Kirsten didn't appear impressed ... facing away from the stage, stirring her drink, and trying to talk with her friends. »

Though the film noir genre has spawned some of the finest movies ever made, illuminated by the likes of Casablanca, The Maltese Falcon and The Third Man – it seems to be a classic style mostly confined to the past, encapsulating the treasured 1940s era of cinema.When tackled in contemporary film, we tend to see subversions of the genre, with the likes Sin City and Drive, for example. However, Hossein Amini’s adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s eponymous novel, The Two Faces of January, is noir in its purest form, as a real attempt to recreate the quintessential pictures of old, and remain faithful to the discernible tropes and conventions. Though admiring Amini for giving it a go, this particular endeavour is uninspiring and forgettable.

Patricia Highsmith provides the plot and writer-director Hossein Amini supplies the culture in “The Two Faces of January,” a gripping old-school suspenser starring Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst and Oscar Isaac that plays like “The Talented Mr. Ripley” minus the sultry sexual chemistry among its three leads. While the love-triangle dynamic lacks spark, this tony adaptation should have no trouble seducing Hitchcock fans and smarthouse types with its golden-hued tour of southeast Europe. What better way to see Turkey and Greece than in the company of such beautiful law-breakers as they try to stay two steps ahead of the local authorities?
Originally developed through “Ripley” director Anthony Minghella’s Mirage shingle, this lesser-known Highsmith novel has been smoldering on Amini’s to-do list for nearly 15 years. Best known as the screenwriter of such subtext-rich adaptations as “The Wings of the Dove” and “Drive,” Amini excels at conveying the subtle, unspoken tensions between characters, »

Will Ferrell and Adam McKay wear many hats in this industry. As writers, directors, and actors, they’ve leant their touch to countless comedies that have that distinct Ferrell-McKay edge: both Anchorman films, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Step Brothers, among others. That’s because they wear one of those hats together, as Gary Sanchez, Paraguayan financier, enterprenuer, and film producer at Gary Sanchez Productions. Ferrell and McKay have announced that Gary Sanchez’ next move is to launch a sister label that will focus on female-driven television and film projects. Gloria Sanchez Productions, named after Gary’s favorite step-grandaughter of course, will be headed by longtime Sanchez executive Jessica Elbaum. Elbaum worked with the duo on Step Brothers and Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, and served as the producer of their female-centric film Bachelorette in 2012, which starred Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan, Isla Fisher, and Rebel Wilson. Apparently the Gloria Sanchez venture was Elbaum’s idea »

The first trailer has arrived for The Two Faces Of January, starring Viggo Mortensen as a con man whose past catches up with him, having fled to Athens with his wife, Kirsten Dunst. Fortunately for the couple, assistance soon presents itself in the form of Oscar Isaac's tour guide, a local scam-artist who pledges to help them escape from the long arm of the law. Only problem is that Isaac isn't the most trustworthy of characters… that said, neither is Mortensen, and as the fates of both become more entwined, the web of intrigue...

It’s a little disconcerting to see Oscar Isaac in a 1960s period piece and find him without cat, guitar, or mop of overly cynical dark brown curls. Yet that’s exactly what lies within The Two Faces of January: an Isaac who’s cleanly shaven and clearly takes care of his hair. Also, he’s a tour guide in Greece who occasionally cons his customers out of their cash. And it’s in Greece where Rydal, Isaac’s character, will happen upon Chester and Colette MacFarland (Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst), an American couple who happen to be doing a little conning of their own. One murder later and they’re all tangled up in each others’ various crimes; forcing Rydal and the happy(ish) couple to go on the lam together. Intrigue, sexual tension and gun violence ensue. Based off a novel by Patricia Highsmith (the author whose previous work became Strangers on a Train and »

This is the first trailer for Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst's new thriller The Two Faces of January. The movie was written and directed by screenwriter Hossein Amini, and it's based on the 1964 novel of the same name by Patricia Highsmith. Amini is best know for writing films such as Drive and 47 Ronin. This looks like a solid movie, and you can't go wrong with Mortensen. The guy always chooses great projects to work on. Here's the synopsis:
In 1962 the American couple Chester MacFarland (Mortensen) and his wife Colette (Dunst) tour Greece and visit the Acropolis of Athens. There, they meet Rydal (Oscar Isaac), who works as a tour guide but scams tourists in the process. The MacFarlands invite Rydal to dinner, and Rydal, entranced by the couple's wealth and beauty, accepts their invitation. While Rydal visits the MacFarlands' hotel, Chester presses him to help move an unconscious body. »

Ahead of its debut at the Berlin International Film Festival tomorrow, the first trailer and poster has been released for The Two Faces of January. Screenwriter Hossein Amini (Drive, Snow White and the Huntsman) makes his directorial debut with this adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's novel, which follows an American con man (Viggo Mortensen) and his wife (Kirsten Dunst), who rope a young Greek man (Oscar Isaac) into helping them move a dead body. Check out the first footage and one-sheet from this thriller, which is set for release in the U.K. on May 16, although a domestic release date has not been set.
1962. A glamorous American couple, the charismatic Chester MacFarland (Viggo Mortensen) and his alluring younger wife Colette (Kirsten Dunst), arrive in Athens by boat via the Corinthian Canal. While sightseeing at the Acropolis they encounter Rydal (Oscar Isaac), a young, Greek-speaking American who is working as a tour guide, »
The trailer for The Two Faces of January, a new film starring Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst, has been released in anticipation of its premiere at the Berlin Film Festival this week. The movie is an adaptation of a novel by Patricia Highsmith, who also wrote The Talented Mr. Ripley. If you were a fan of that ominous tale of envy, obsession, and murder, then this story promises a similar smorgasbord. If you read “Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst” and just skipped to the trailer, then great. I would’ve done the same.
January revolves around a tense love triangle »
