Toronto Spotlight: Fleming, ‘The Equalizer’ Helmer Antoine Fuqua Share Man Love For Denzel’s Killer Acting Skills

7 September 2014 5:58 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Tonight in Toronto, Denzel Washington and his Training Day director Antoine Fuqua will launch a new franchise, The Equalizer, a drama loosely based on the TV series. Thankfully for fans of Washington’s action work, the film is a closer spiritual cousin to Man On Fire, with Washington playing a righteous character who is merciless on the bad guys. Here, Fuqua, who is also mounting a Magnificent Seven remake with Washington for MGM, discusses the star’s everyman appeal and what makes him capable of so many indelible performances.

Deadline: Watching The Equalizer made me feel like I’d gotten the Man On Fire sequel I never thought possible when John Creasy died after killing every kidnapper in Mexico. The spirit of the movie courses through The Equalizer. What is it about Denzel Washington killing bad guys that makes it feel like Christmas morning?

Fuqua: [Laughs]. I just think it’s »

Once Upon a Time for Kanye West: Spike Jonze and Kanye West’s “We Were Once a Fairytale”

5 September 2014 4:55 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Full disclosure: I’m not completely well acquainted with the work of Kanye West, save for half a dozen songs and his very public persona. His egoism almost seems to speak for itself, but there a moments where even I, as someone who rarely listens to rap, understand that there’s more to him than meets the Tweet.

Perhaps part of West’s appeal is his ability to play off of himself intentionally. He has a good sense of humor, and there appears to be a self-awareness in his work, especially in his presentation of his public persona. Kanye West is, to my meager understanding, just as calculated of an artist as Lady Gaga or anyone else.

Spike Jonze, who was first a maestro of the music video before he moved into film, just might be the best person to continue to help hone West’s vaguely Joaquin Phoenix-à-la-i’m Still Here personality. »

First Look at NBC's Peter Pan

4 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Today

NBC has revealed the first photo of Allison Williams as Peter Pan for their telecast of Peter Pan Live. 

Williams is an accomplished actress and singer. Since graduating from Yale University in 2010, she has starred as Marnie Michaels on the twice Emmy Award-nominated and Golden Globe-winning Girls. Williams has also appeared on The Mindy Project and The League.

One of the main reasons that I'm looking forward to this is that Christopher Walken is playing Captain Hook. That is going to be extremely fun to watch.

As for Williams' look in the special… it's interesting. Peter Pan has traditionally been played by females on stage and Williams should be fine. They cast her for a reason.  »

'Jungle Book' Selfies with Bill Murray and Christopher Walken

3 September 2014 2:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Jon Favreau is moving from his hit comedy Chef directly into the family adventure of Disney's The Jungle Book, and as he did on his previous effort, he is sharing selfies with the cast. Today, we get a look at Christopher Walken, who is playing King Louie, as well as Bill Murray ,who is playing Baloo, and newcomer Neel Sethi as Mowgli.

Jon Favreau shared these selfies on his personal Facebook page, and they offer our first look at Neel Sethi since he was cast several weeks ago. In the movie, Baloo and Mowgli will be Jungle bros, and though the big bear will be CGI in the finished film, it looks like the two actors are taking a moment to form their bond.

While Warner Bros. is also in gearing up to shoot The Jungle Book: Origins, Disney's version of the classic Rudyard Kipling is said to be a more lighthearted affair. »

First Look at Allison Williams as Peter Pan Ahead of NBC Live Special

3 September 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The first photo of “Girls” star Allison Williams as Peter Pan has been revealed, courtesy of NBC’s “Today.”

Williams appeared on “Today” to discuss her starring role in “Peter Pan Live,” which she described as “a dream come true.” Far from being daunted by the prospect of a live performance, the star revealed, “we’re so excited about the live part of it, I think that’s what makes it so fun… it’s theater but in the comfort of your own home. That’s what attracted me to it, in part.”

To prove her dedication to the character, Williams even offered — “tentatively” — to cut her hair, but luckily, the producers had other plans. “They said, ‘You’re welcome to do that, we’re still gonna put you in a wig,” she admitted.

The special, slated to air on Dec. 4, will also star Christopher Walken as Captain Hook. In the meantime, »

Peter Pan Image: Allison Williams No Longer One of the Girls

3 September 2014 7:39 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While I sort of love the show Girls, it’s interesting to see which character I am alternately sympathetic to and then repelled by on a weekly basis.  Perhaps it’s a testament to that show’s humanity that it can portray its central characters behaving so atrociously towards each other but still keep us invested because we identify with it on some level.  And Allison Williams’ Marnie can make us cringe with the best of them. That sense of duality will likely not be in play on NBC’s upcoming staging of Peter Pan, though this take does continue a long held (if intermittent) stage tradition of having a female play the lead.  The special airs on December 4th and also stars Christopher Walken as Captain Hook.  Christian Borle will play the role of Smee as well as the role of Mr. Darling.  Hit the jump for a better »

Allison Williams reveals 'Peter Pan Live!' costume on NBC's 'Today'

3 September 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The build-up to NBC's live "Peter Pan" event continues as Allison Williams visited the network's morning show, "Today," on Wednesday to discuss the project and the preparation involved in playing the boy who never grew up.  We also got a first look at her in costume. The new picture, which you can see below (above is her at last week's Emmy Awards), features Williams in the rigging of a boat (perhaps the infamous Jolly Roger?), staring off into the distance.  You will note her short hair, which is a wig and not the result of her cutting it in that style. Williams spoke of that on "Today," saying, ""I sort of very tentatively offered to cut my hair, I was like, 'You know, if it's a thing that would help I could cut my hair,' and they were like, 'You're welcome to do that, we're still gonna put you in a wig. »
