Broadway Actor John McMartin Dies at 86

7 July 2016 3:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

John McMartin, the Broadway veteran who created roles in landmark musicals including “Sweet Charity” and “Follies,” had died. He was 86.

The death of the longtime actor, whose face was familiar to TV audiences from roles on “The Golden Girls,” “Murder, She Wrote” and, most recently, “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” was attributed to cancer in a paid obituary announcement in the New York Times. On Broadway, he’d been seen in “All the Way,” the Tony winning 2014 production that starred Bryan Cranston, as well as musicals “Anything Goes” (2011) and “Grey Gardens” (2006).

McMartin, who was nominated for five Tony Awards over the course of his career, made his Broadway debut in 1961 play “The Conquering Hero,” but his first signature role came in 1966 Neil Simon-Cy Coleman musical “Sweet Charity,” in which he played the nebbishy accountant Oscar, a Tony-nominated performance he reprised in the 1969 movie version opposite Shirley MacLaine.

His association with composer Stephen Sondheim began with the »

25 May 2016 6:16 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

With Johnny Depp saying that Australian deputy Pm Barnaby Joyce looks like he’s ‘inbred with a tomato’, can you guess which piece of shade reportedly belongs to which celebrity sparring partners?

Walter Matthau on Barbra Streisand

"I would rather marry an old donkey than kiss that woman"

"I have more talent in my smallest fart than she has in her entire body"

"She is the definition of inconsequential"

"Why would anyone be entertained by that bowlegged moron?"

Harrison Ford on Shia Laboeuf

"He's a fucking idiot"

"What an ungrateful punk"

"He sums up everything I hate about young actors

"I'd rather have acted with a snake"

Diane Kruger on Peter O'Toole

"There were times when he would just look at me, drooling, and I would feel physically sick"

"I know he was seen as a classic actor by many but turning up late smelling like brandy isn't my idea »

Beauty vs Beast: Cillian Time

23 May 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Howdy and Happy Monday, folks, Jason from Mnpp here with your "Beauty vs Beast" for the week - this time around we're wishing the great and still somehow under-rated Cillian Murphy a happy 40th birthday! He hits the milestone on Wednesday, and we couldn't be happier to watch him age - his smooth-skinned preternatural prettiness was kind of too much to look at once upon a time. Time has made him seem more human, less alien and terrifying, which on the one hand is a loss, but I think that he's a great enough actor that it's one he can overcome with ease.

Anyway in his honor we're stepping back to a role that, contrary to everything I just said, showed him at his most human and his most terrifying all at once, with Wes Craven's terrifically entertaining 2005 thriller Red Eye. Cillian Murphy plays Jackson Rippner (yes really!), the »

5 May 2016 12:01 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Paramount Television is putting together the dramedy series "Bettyville" starring Oscar winner Shirley MacLaine and Tony winner Matthew Broderick.

Broderick plays a man who returns to his hometown of Paris, Missouri to care for his aging mother (MacLaine). He expected to be away for only a few weeks, but life conspired to keep him there, armed with not much more than a (mostly) willing heart, a broken past to sort out, and the pair's irascible personalities.

John Hoffman ("Looking," "Grace and Frankie") is penning this adaptation of journalist George Hodgman's best-selling memoir and will serve as executive producer and showrunner. Hodgman, Anne Carey and Amy Nauiokas will also executive produce with filming to take place in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

If heaven exists, what would it look like?

It's one of life's big questions, and if you believe what you see in the movies, it's a place full of white fluffy clouds and friendly angels pining for their life back on our Big Blue Marble. But that's not how Albert Brooks sees it.

Twenty-five years ago — and less than a year after Ghost stormed the box office — Brooks wrote, directed, and starred in Defending Your Life, the story of an ad man who buys himself a Bimmer for his 40th birthday, »

Czech Director Jan Nemec Dies at 79

20 March 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Director-scribe Jan Nemec, a co-founder of the Czech New Wave which was banned for work exposing communist brutality, died Friday after an illness, according to Prague media. Nemec was 79.

Having chosen to study at Prague’s prestigious Famu film school over pursuing a career in jazz, the young Nemec was uniquely focused and soon put together his debut feature in 1964, “Diamonds in the Night,” based on the true-life escape from a Nazi transport by co-writer Arnost Lustig.

The film’s haunting, surreal imagery and minimal dialogue unfolds as two young boys who, despite being marked for death, wander through forests, decrepit city streets and perplexing encounters with characters both familiar and strange.

A Report on the Party and the Guests” followed in 1966, recounting a bizarre kidnapping that menaces a social gathering of dandies in the forest, a metaphor that would highly concern state censors not long after its release.
