One would be hard pressed to meet two more charming, easy-going people than Oscar-winner Marisa Tomei and Sam Rockwell, who co-star together in "Loitering with Intent," now in competition at the Tribeca Film Festival. Their friends and fellow New York actors Michael Godere and Ivan Martin cowrote and star in the film, which centers on two struggling actors who flee to the country in hopes of knocking out a neo-noir screenplay. Instead of finding peace and quiet, they get caught up in the antics of the playful but stubborn Gigi (Tomei) and boyfriend Wayne (Rockwell), who is trying to woo her back after proposing and disappearing. What keeps the film going is the great chemistry of the ensemble cast, helmed by Tomei's infectious, warm energy and Rockwell's humorously intimidating yet sincere intensity. They both add intriguing depth to what otherwise, in less talented hands, might have become the stereotypical dramedy of distressed lovers. »

On Easter Sunday in New York, directors Sofia Norlin (Broken Hill Blues with Sebastian Hiort af Ornäs and Lina Leandersson); Marshall Curry (Point And Shoot on Matthew VanDyke's struggles); Ira Sachs (Love Is Strange, starring John Lithgow, Marisa Tomei and Alfred Molina) and Orlando von Einsiedel (Virunga on the plight of Park Director Emmanuel de Merode and the Mountain Gorillas) convened for a Tribeca Talks: Pen to Paper - Calling The Shots panel.
Robert Altman's Nashville, Joshua Oppenheimer's The Act Of Killing, Michael Moore's Roger And Me, Hoop Dreams directed by Steve James, Rob Epstein's The Times Of Harvey Milk, John Schlesinger's Midnight Cowboy and the oeuvre of Andrei Tarkovsky played a part in the way the filmmakers thought about time. »

The New York City skyline is one of the tired titans of American imagery. To put it more charitably, it’s awfully difficult to fill a movie with classic images of Gotham and finish with something original and interesting. In Ira Sachs‘s newest feature, Love Is Strange, one of his characters goes to the trouble of actually painting the view of Manhattan from a Brooklyn roof. This particular canvas becomes one of the most emotionally charged symbols of the film. In the hands of a less assured director, it would be entirely ponderous. Yet Sachs knows his way around the city, so to speak. His last feature, Keep the Lights On, charted the heartbreaking decline of a relationship against the backdrop of a hazy metropolis. Love Is Strange, on the other hand, finds a much clearer and brighter source of light. Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina) are an aging couple finally, legally »

Los Angeles, April 19: Actress Marisa Tomei believes she isn't the right person to essay Lady Gaga in a movie on the "Poker face" singer's life. Nevertheless, she is flattered that Gaga wants her to take on the role.
"I was so flattered and I couldn't believe she said that. But I was thinking, 'What kind of movie?' Is it going to be some avant-garde thing where she goes back in time or I would play her older than she actually is? I don't understand, is it a 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' thing," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Tomei as saying.
Gaga had once said that her friends often call her Tomei when she gets angry.

Adam Rapp is an award-winning playwright, theater director, novelist, and filmmaker.

Biggest challenge in completing this. »

This time around, the director has rounded up Michael Godere, Ivan Martin, Marisa Tomei, Sam Rockwell, Brian Geraghty, Isabelle McNally and Natasha Lyonne to star in "Loitering With Intent" — also co-written by leads Ivan Martin and Michael Godere — and it follows a couple of out-of-work actors who think they have the next hot script.

There are no dreams deferred for the producers of the Denzel Washington-led revival of A Raisin in the Sun. In its first full week since its April 3 opening, director Kenny Leon’s well-reviewed revival earned a remarkable $1.18 million, according to figures from the Broadway League covering ticket sales for the week ending April 13. That makes it the fifth highest-grossing show of the week and the only non-musical to cross the seven-figure threshold. And thanks to premium ticket prices as high as $348, Raisin actually exceeded the estimated gross potential of the Ethel Barrymore Theatre by 16 percent.

Logan Marshall-Green is a proud papa. For the second time! The Prometheus star took to Instagram on Friday to happily announce to the world that he and wife Diane had welcomed a son. Complete with pictures, of course. "Meet Tennessee Logan Marshall-Green," he captioned an adorable photo of the couple's bundle of joy. The 37-year-old actor also posted a very cute shot of his daughter holding her new sibling, writing, "My Chilin Chilin." Another snap shows Diane gently cradling little Tennessee while staring lovingly at him. In January 2103, rumors circulated that Logan was engaged to Marisa Tomei. However, the actress's rep confirmed to E! News at the time »
New York – In a typically double-edged moment in The Realistic Joneses, Marisa Tomei's frightened character takes a clumsy stab at praying. "You're probably, like, my God, what is this even about?" she muses to the Almighty. Audiences drawn solely by the impressive cast might share that confusion, given what a bold departure this represents for commercially risk-averse Broadway. The absurdist intellectual humor of playwright Will Eno is very much an acquired taste, provoking as much discomfort as laughs, and placing him somewhere between Samuel Beckett and Edward Albee. But theatergoers willing to dive into the sea of

In Will Eno’s Broadway play, “The Realistic Joneses,” opening April 6 at the Lyceum Theater, Toni Collette plays Jennifer Jones, a woman whose laconic husband (Tracy Letts) has a rare terminal illness. When her new neighbors, also called the Joneses (played by Michael C. Hall and Marisa Tomei) show up, the four characters start interacting in all sorts of weird ways. Mr. Hall’s character can’t seem to stop talking — he says all the things most people tend to keep to themselves; Ms. »

Hall back on the boards for the first time in 12 years (since a short stint as Billy Flynn in Chicago), co-star Toni Collette (The United States of Tara) in her first NYC stage role since wowing us with her singing chops in The Wild Party in 2000, Oscar winner Marisa Tomei strutting her »

Over the course of a nearly-20-year filmmaking career, Darren Aronofsky has made movies about deranged mathematicians, drug addicts, doctors, down-on-their-luck athletes and dancers. When it was announced in 2007 that the Brooklyn-born director would be taking on Noah — the story of a man, a flood and one very angry deity — you could hear the scratching of heads. The man who showed us Jared Leto and Jennifer Connelly shooting up in Requiem for a Dream was making the first big-budget, A-lister–helmed biblical project since Mel Gibson's 2004 The Passion of the Christ? »
Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. That’s certainly the case in Rob the Mob, Raymond De Felitta’s jaunty, disarmingly human crime caper about Tommy and Rosemarie Uva, a real Queens couple who brazenly stuck up social clubs habited by members of two major New York crime families, and got away with it – until they didn’t.
When we first meet Tommy and Rosie, they’re embarking on an ill-advised robbery, one which will land Tommy in prison for 18 months. Immediately, the motivations behind their life of crime are clear; of course, the financial incentive is there, but there’s a heated romantic spark driving their activities forward as well. So crazy in love that they feel invincible, the two lovebirds instinctively feel that the world is theirs for the taking.
Once Tommy’s out, it’s not long before the two are scheming again, despite Rosie’s »

The project centers on a dysfunctional family bound by love and the restaurant they run together.

Peck plays Ned, Emma’s terminally adolescent younger brother, a culinary artist who tries hard to bring some sophistication and modernity to his family’s decades old restaurant, but his menu changes only infuriate his dad. Quinn plays John Carroll, the eldest and the most cynical and »
