13 Actors Who Almost Played Superheroes

15 July 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

There are a lot of "what ifs" in the movie business. There are so many options when it comes to casting actors to play characters in movies. Superhero films are huge right now, and I love most of the actors that studios have cast to play these badass characters. Christian Bale as Batman, Andrew Garfield aa Spider-Man, Henry Cavill as Superman, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man are just a few of many. But these characters could have easily been played by other actors. It's hard to imagine that now since we're already invested in what's in front of our eyes.

I've come up with a list of actors who almost played some of these superheroes. You may already know about some of the close calls on the list, you may not, but when I was researching for this article there were a few things I didn't know before, »

Rob Lowe Clearly Loves Creeping Us Out

14 July 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I just watched Rob Lowe in the new movie "Sex Tape," where he plays a seemingly mild-mannered exec who has a very dark, very shocking wild side. I concluded one thing: Rob Lowe loves, loves, loves creeping us out. It's his favorite thing. I imagine Rob Lowe reads scripts, chuckles a bit, and says, "This will make everyone uncomfortable. I'm doing it." He just goes for it, this guy. Here are five of our favorite times he was a total creep. 1. In "Tommy Boy," he was an evil, Mom-loving bastard.  In twenty seconds, you understand everything that is awesome and creepy about Rob Lowe in "Tommy Boy." 2. Remember "Crazy Six"? Bet you don't. The point is: Don't mess with Billie. Just look at Rob Lowe as outlaw Billie in this unreal 1997 film about mafia families vying for control of the arms trade. If the appearance of Burt Reynolds isn't upsetting enough, »

The Longest Yard

9 July 2014 3:53 AM, PDT | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

Adam Sandler shows how tough his nut is in this remake of Robert Aldrich's 1974 comedy drama as the jailed quarterback ordered to lead a ragtag team of inmates in a match practice against slippery warden James Cromwell's brutal prison officers. Chris Rock provides wise-cracking support, rap star Nelly makes a solid movie debut, and original star Burt Reynolds returns to play the cons' vengeful coach. As Sandler fans will expect, it'll hurt them more than it hurts you. »

Citizen Peeta

25 June 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Ja from Mnpp here, with that there the first teaser for Mockingjay, the third Hunger Games film and the first half of the two-part finale. (What convolutions our sentences must take in this new world of franchise logic.) If you ask me Donald Sutherland would already have a couple of golden boys (I mean even some nominations, at least!) on his mantle, I love him that much, so highlighting his sparkling sneering performance as President Snow in this video seems wise to me, and makes my extremities tingle. And I love Josh Hutcherson playing the role of "Kept Boy" up in there -- because my wiring is strange I immediately thought of Burt Reynolds in Citizen Ruth, of all things, with that young boy he always had beside him. Now that would take the Hunger Games to a whole new level of complications, eh? Katniss storms the Capitol and finds »

Orange Is the New Black Season 2 – Episode 9

23 June 2014 12:13 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jackson Ball reviews the ninth episode of Orange Is the New Black Season 2 …

Just like that, we are heading into the tail-end of season 2. Episode nine offers the regular dose of shocks and laughs, but also promises certain events that will, I expect have drastic repercussions when we reach the season finale.

Warning! Spoilers Ahead – You have been warned!

It’s been a while since we spent any considerable length of time outside the prison. Sure, there have been the (excellent) flashbacks that have fleshed out the backstory’s of the show’s supporting characters, but the only present-day escapes we’ve had are that of the prison staff – in the form of Caputo’s (Nick Sandow) ludicrous garage band – and the awkward goings-on of Larry (Jason Biggs). Neither of these plot-paths have been particularly gripping as yet.

However, now we finally get to leave Litchfield Penitentiary with some real narrative purpose, »

Film Review: ‘It’s Only Make Believe’

20 June 2014 4:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite the title, there’s nothing very fanciful about the trials endured by the heroine of “It’s Only Make Believe,” or her doggedly realistic responses to them. Still, there’s a breathless hyperreality to Arild Ostin Ommundsen’s latest feature that lends spontaneity and verve to a tale that might well have been played as relentlessly downbeat. Starring the multihyphenate’s muse Silje Salomonsen as a young woman who pays mightily — then pays some more — for some early law-flaunting behavior, it’s not quite a straightforward thriller or character study. It’s not quite awards material, either (though Ommundsen did get a home-turf Amanda Award for his cinematography), but its fresh tilt on potentially cliched melodrama could win it some offshore sales in various formats.

Rockabilly-do’d Frank (Fredrik Hana) and apple-cheeked Jenny (Salomonsen) are a Norse Bonnie and Clyde lite, feckless lovebirds who doing some petty drug dealing »

Watch Jimmy Fallon and Chris Christie's 'Evolution of Dad Dancing'

13 June 2014 6:50 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

With Father's Day approaching, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie dropped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to help illustrate the "History of Dad Dancing." It's the latest in Fallon's ongoing "History of Dance" series, and it conjures long-buried memories of awkward family reunions and embarrassing wedding receptions.

Gang War in Milan | Blu-ray Review

3 June 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Remembered primarily for several giallo titles (and some more exploitative sub-genre cannibal thrillers), illustrious director Umberto Lenzi also helmed several Euro-crime police thrillers (polizieschi). Raro Video brings his first foray into the crime world, 1973’s Gang War in Milan, to Blu-ray with a new, digitally restored transfer. While it’s about as straightforward as its title promises, it’s filled with amusing instances.

Antonio Sobato (father of soap star Antonio Sobato Jr.) is a produce vendor who moonlights as Milan’s most influential pimp, Toto Cangemi. A staunchly proud Sicilian, Toto doesn’t take too kindly to French gangster and drug lord Roger Daverty, aka La Capitaine (Philippe Leroy), who makes an aggressive offer to unite their crime fronts. If Toto’s girls also sell La Capitaine’s goods, they’ll be rolling in the dough. But nobody couches on Toto’s turf, and the rival powers are soon going head to head. »

Watch ‘Sherman’s March’ Instead of ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’

30 May 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

While it’s sold as a comedic Western, A Million Ways to Die in the West is not a very good Western at all. Oh, it may take place in the 19th century American frontier and feature pistol duels, saloon brawls and farming, but its story is completely 21st century romance. The movie is your standard “nice guy loses girl, tries to win her back and discovers a much better girl in the process” affair. The setting is nothing but window dressing. It isn’t even exploited for very many jokes, good or otherwise – and most of the jokes are bad. But there’s one upside to this misaimed move on the part of writer/director/star Seth MacFarlane. He’s put himself in similar thematic territory with an already existing film. And that film does relationships and humor much, much better. Sherman’s March is a supremely strange piece of work.

'Get the Gimp': Breaking Down 'Pulp Fiction's Most Notorious Scene

21 May 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Pulp Fiction has become so canonized as a modern classic, it's easy to forget how transgressive it was on its release twenty years ago. But when Quentin Tarantino's film debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in May 1994, it thrilled and shocked the audience in equal measures.

'Pulp Fiction,' A to Z

No scene upended more expectations than the pawn shop sequence (Spoiler Alert — if you haven't ever seen the movie, this is the moment when you should stop reading and go do that. Really! It's streaming on Netflix! »

Nancy Malone, Pioneering TV Producer-Director, Studio Exec, Dies at 78

9 May 2014 3:16 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Nancy Malone, a ground-breaking and Emmy-winning director-producer, Emmy-nominated actress and the first woman VP at a major studio, died May 8 at City of Hope in Duarte, Calif., as the result of pneumonia that arose from complications of leukemia. She was 78.

Shortly after producing her first TV movie, “Winner Take All,” starring Shirley Jones, for NBC, Malone joined 20th Century Fox’s TV department as director of TV development.

Comedy Central Strikes Syndication Deal For Archer

7 May 2014 4:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There is more cause for celebration in the Archer camp today, as the show follows up its rare double season order with a Comedy Central syndication deal. Having confirmed production of the sixth and seventh season of the award-winning animated comedy, FX’s grand plans for Archer continue apace, with a move that will hopefully bring the bumbling international spy agency to a brand new set of audiences.

In a development that mirrors its live-action FX sibling, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Archer will find its off-network home with Comedy Central, now that they have agreed terms with Twentieth Television. Those terms cover all five existing seasons of the show, as well as a commitment to future seasons – which is good news for new and potential audiences, who may be slightly confused by the current fifth season Archer Vice re-vamp. With an exclusive pre-midnight window for the first two years of the deal, »

Gay Roles by Straight Actors We Could’ve Lived Without

5 May 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

For a straight actor to successfully play a gay character is not as easy as one might think. Not everyone can pull a Heath Ledger in Brokeback Mountain, a River Phoenix in Private Idaho, or even a Robin Williams in The Birdcage. When I see a movie about gays with a straight lead and director and it fails, I often wonder how the voice would have been different with a gay director or gay actor. Would Cruising be the same film if the director were gay? Here are just a few gay characters played by straight actors that we all could’ve lived without.

Prince Harry Goes Shirtless with a Medallion Necklace While Poolside in Miami, Channels Burt Reynolds: Pictures

So groovy, Prince Harry! The redheaded royal channeled a retro vibe while poolside in Miami this week.  Harry, 29, lounged shirtless in the sun, wearing a pair of blue swim trunks and accessorizing his bare chest with a bold medallion necklace.  Prince William's younger brother seemed to be taking a page out of Burt Reynolds' book, looking ever the retro hunk with his hairy chest and man jewelry. Although noticeably less hirsute than Reynolds, Harry accessorized his medallion necklace with a chunky silver watch, gold bracelet, and a [...] »
