A golden age for acting grande dames

31 December 2010 4:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The likes of Helen Mirren, Imelda Staunton and Julia McKenzie show skills rather than surgery are the way to success

Botox and surgical artifice are not the way for a woman to prolong a career on stage and screen. While it may still be true in Hollywood that a frozen face will keep you in the running for female lead roles, actor Helena Bonham Carter and producer Lili Fini Zanuck roundly decried the practice on Sam Taylor-Wood's edition of The Today Programme on Wednesday. It might be a bit of a niche issue, but it did make me think that Hbc could well be right when she says she is sure she would get less work if she tried to stop her face from changing.

Female British actors of a certain age – oh, let's not be coy, say, above 50 – really are enjoying a golden era. Not only are they »

Dame Judi Dench is to appear in Clint Eastwood‘s film J Edgar, according to the man himself. The film, based on the life of J Edgar Hoover, original Director of the FBI, is set to go before cameras this year, and the word is that Charlize Theron is also to appear.

“We think she will be in the film, and Judi Dench is definitely in the film and there we are.”

The film is written by Dustin Lance Black, and will see Leonardo DiCaprio take the lead as Hoover.

Judi Dench Cast In Clint Eastwood’s ‘J. Edgar’; Charlize Theron May Still Join

29 December 2010 2:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Briefly: Clint Eastwood continues to pull in impressive actors for his J. Edgar Hoover biography, titled J. Edgar. Leonardo DiCaprio is playing the title role, Armie Hammer (The Social Network) is his right-hand man [1] and reputed lover Clyde Tolson, and the Australian actor Damon Herriman has a minor role as Bruno Hauptmann, the man tried and convicted for 'the crime of the century': kidnapping and killing the Lindbergh baby. Now the director has told SandwichJohnFilms [2] [via the Playlist [3]]that Judi Dench is "definitely in the film" and that "we think [Charlize Theron] will be in the film." That would seem to indicate that Ms. Theron will be in J. Edgar rather than Snow White and the Huntsman, as the two films are meant to shoot int he same time period. Last we heard, Charlize Theron was up for the role of Helen Gandy, Hoover's long-time secretary. No word at this point who Judi Dench might play, »

Judi Dench And Damon Herriman Join Leo DiCaprio In Clint Eastwood's 'J. Edgar'

29 December 2010 9:41 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Clint Eastwood got at least two good presents under his Christmas tree this year: The Playlist reports that Judi Dench and Damon Herriman (TV's "Justified") have joined Eastwood's latest flick "J. Edgar" (formerly "Hoover"). They are added to the growing list of actors that also includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Armie Hammer ("The Social Network") and Charlize Theron.

Herriman would come on board as Bruno Hauptmann, the man convicted of kidnapping and killing the Lindbergh baby. His conviction came into question later because police were accused of manipulating the evidence, though, which prompted Hoover to launch an FBI inquiry into the police handling of the case. Dench's role in the film has yet to be announced.

As you've probably discerned from its title, the film follows the life of the FBI's first director, J. Edgar Hoover, as told from his perspective. DiCaprio is tapped to play the title character, while Hammer will »

Judi Dench & Damon Herriman Joining Clint Eastwood's 'J. Edgar'

29 December 2010 9:39 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We already know Leonardo DiCaprio is playing the titular historical figure of the FBI in Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar, and Armie Hammer (The Social Network) landed the role of his alleged gay lover. Now Eastwood is in the midst of rounding up a supporting cast. Earlier this month The Playlist got word that "Justified" star Damon Herriman will play Bruno Hauptmann, the man convicted of kidnapping & killing the Lindbergh baby. Now they've spied a story over at Sandwich John Films who spoke with Eastwood at his California Hall Of Fame induction where he revealed that Judi Dench has already signed on for an unknown role. We're still waiting to find out whether or not Charlize Theron will take the role Helen Gandy, a Justice Department file clerk who ended up being Hoover’s personal secretary.

FBI’s Most Wanted: Judi Dench

29 December 2010 7:32 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Clint Eastwood and Judi Dench: a couple of tough-as-nails acting legends. It appears that these two elemental forces of nature will be working together, as Collider is reporting that Dench has agreed to join Eastwood’s newest project, “J. Edgar.”

J. Edgar,” of course, is the hotly anticipated biopic of legendary FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, who is slated to be played in the film by Leonardo DiCaprio.

Just what role Dame Judi is going to be playing is still unclear — we’re hoping they decide to cast her as Hoover’s British counterpart in espionage, M — but she may not be the only high profile actress joining the cast. Also in discussions to appear in the film? Charlize Theron.

Theron, however, is currently caught in the horns of a dilemma, as she’s also been offered a key role in Universal’s ambitious big-budget epic “Snow White and the Huntsman, »

Judi Dench Joins Eastwood’s ‘J. Edgar’; Charlize Theron Likely To Follow

29 December 2010 7:11 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Two lovely, Oscar-winning ladies are looking to appear opposite Leonardo DiCaprio as J. Edgar Hoover in Clint Eastwood’s latest directorial effort, J. Edgar. That one of those ladies is a 76-year old English thespian and the other a blonde bombshell from South Africa merely goes to show that we here at Screen Rant are not biased against great talent due to a trivial matter like age.

Dame Judi Dench’s involvement with the Hoover biopic has been confirmed by Eastwood himself, who also says that Charlize Theron is likely to officially join his project in the near future as well.

This scoop comes via Sandwich John Films, who were informed by the famously raspy-toned acting legend and now acclaimed auteur that the seemingly ubiquitous DiCaprio liked Dustin ...

Judi Dench to Appear in J. Edgar

29 December 2010 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Filmmaker Clint Eastwood doesn't do a lot of press these days, yet a site called "Sandwich John Films" somehow got a chance to talk to him on the red carpet and were able to get a scoop that he's going to have Oscar-winning actress Dame Judi Dench appearing in his upcoming J. Edgar Hoover biopic J. Edgar , starring Leonardo Dicaprio and written by Dustin Lance Black. In fact, they learned this when they asked about Charlize Theron's rumored casting in the movie, to which the filmmaker responded: "We think she will be in the film, and Judi Dench is definitely in the film and there we are. So there you have it. Theron is still on the table but Dench is definitely on board, and knowing Eastwood's quick turnaround for movies, we're likely to be seeing the movie »

Don’t be fooled by Clint Eastwood’s forthcoming biopic J. Edgar not being listed in our most anticipated movies of 2011 article, the film is very much on our radar and we like how it’s shaping up so far. Leonardo DiCaprio has been on board for a while as the titular former head of the FBI and The Social Network’s break-out thespian Armie Hammer will be Edgar’s assistant/life long close friend & possible closeted lover Clyde Tolson.

Australian actor Damon Herriman (from the show ‘Justified’) is Bruno Hauptmann, the man who kidnapped and killed the Linderbergh baby and Charlize Theron has been in talks for the part of Helen Gandy, Edgar’s loyal secretary. Now we can add Judi Dench to the cast, with Eastwood hinting that he is winning the battle for Theron’s signature…

Top 10 Movie Trailers of 2010

28 December 2010 6:13 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Movie trailers certainly help make or break a film’s success at the box office. I still think that the reason why Scott Pilgrim didn’t make much money is because it’s trailer didn’t appeal to most people. Working at a video store you constantly get to hear why people want to see a film or don’t. For most mainstream moviegoers the trailer and names of actors attached to a film dictate their interest in seeing it. The following ten trailers do a good job of showing some of the best imagery from each movie while using either a great piece of the movie score and/or popular music to sell the film.

Making a movie which all takes place in the confined space of a coffin is a tough job, and especially a tough sale. It’s an even a harder job to cut »

Dench And Theron Locked Into Eastwood's 'J. Edgar'

28 December 2010 5:34 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Finally there's some confirmations on casting found here during the holiday break amongst all the flurry of rumors spreading around. This one focuses on the Clint Eastwood directed biopic "J. Edgar" where the man himself puts some casting into the "true" file. We've been hearing around town that Leonardo DiCaprio and Charlize Theron are more or less cast, especially Leo who's playing the title character. Here's what Eastwood had to say on the matter:"The script is a very good script and we were all preparing it and he [DiCaprio] liked the script. He actually volunteered for it... We think she [Theron] will be in the film. And Judi Dench is definitely in the film and there we are."Wonder who Dench will be playing in this picture. Either way this is shaping up to be a nice cast now that Theron, DiCaprio, Dench and Armi Hammer are all a part of the Eastwood film. »
