‘Transporter Refueled’ Star Ed Skrein Talks Replacing Jason Statham in Action Franchise

15 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On screen, he may play a steely hero with a penchant for fast driving and pyrotechnics, but during production on “The Transporter Refueled,” star Ed Skrein was perfectly willing to let the professionals handle the dangerous bits.

“I was genuinely happy to let my talented stunt double Pascal Lavanchy take the reins,” Skrein told Variety. “I did the simple fun stuff. But we didn’t use a lot of CGI and he loves smashing up cars.”

Skrein, a former swimming coach and self-confessed fitness nut, did train extensively in martial arts for his breakout role. Despite intense scenes of hand-to-hand combat, he says he emerged from the production relatively unscathed.

“Safety is paramount to our crew,” he said. “I had a couple of bruises and scratches, but nothing some Ibuprofen can’t cure.”

The English actor has been tasked with donning Jason Statham’s impeccably tailored suits as a mercenary »

Actor Woods Multi-Million Dollar Lawsuit Targets Twitter Users: Slander Case or Attack on Freedom of Speech Online?

James Woods in 'Videodrome.' James Woods in $10 million Twitter lawsuit feud: Crassly vocal right-wing actor goes after two crassly vocal users who attacked him In a letter dated Aug. 21, '15, Twitter attorney Ryan Mrazik ridiculed Surf's Up and Scary Movie 2 actor James Woods, while also highlighting the potentially dangerous precedent of a $10 million lawsuit the 68-year-old entertainer filed against a Twitter user last July. The lawsuit was followed by a subpoena demanding that the social media giant reveal the user's identity and that of another user with whom Woods has been embroiled in the (generally) no-holds-barred Twitterverse. In case you're unfamiliar with the name, these days the two-time Oscar-nominated Woods is best known for a supporting role as a right-wing sociopath in Roland Emmerich's thriller White House Down, starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx (as a liberal-minded U.S. president despised by Woods' character), and for his relentless, »

See Stephen Colbert Impersonate Mick Jagger for Howard Stern

18 August 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Stephen Colbert wowed Howard Stern with a rendition of "Brown Sugar" and immaculate impersonation of Mick Jagger's dance moves during an appearance on The Howard Stern Show Tuesday, on Stern's SiriusXM channel Howard 100.

The song-and-dance routine was prompted by Stern's question about a Rolling Stones cover band Colbert fronted when he was younger. The Late Show host-to-be immediately broke off a few slick-footed dance moves before telling Stern: "We were called Shot in the Dark — we called ourselves 'A Shit in the Dark' because we sucked so badly."

President Obama -- Down to Folk

President Barack Obama has debuted his very own Spotify playlist and while you might have been able to guess some of the artists ... others are a little out of left field. The White House just launched their official Spotify channel with two #Potus playlists and the surprise black sheep have to be acts like Florence + The Machine, Coldplay, The Lumineers and Brandi Carlile.

First Video from Martin Scorsese's 'Vinyl' Series on HBO

7 August 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Vinyl promises to be an epic series about 70s era Rock and Roll, and it is arriving from the producers of Boardwalk Empire, Terence Winter and Martin Scorsese, who have teamed-up with iconic Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger to ensure one of the most authentic experiences ever. HBO has finally released the first trailer for Vinyl. And as expected, it promises to be something quite special.

Many were upset that Boardwalk Empire got a truncated final season. One of the purported reasons that happened was because executive producer Terence Winter was a little too eager to begin work on Vinyl. It would once again have him working with Martin Scorsese, whom he collaborated on not just with Boardwalk Empire, but also the extremely popular tue-life thriller The Wolf of Wall Street. And when Mick Jagger jumped into the mix, that pretty much sealed the fate of Nucky Thompson. As a result, »

HBO releases two teasers for their upcoming series ‘Vinyl’

7 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Over the past decade, a number of prominent directors and filmmakers have made the jump from the big screen to television in some capacity. 2010 saw Martin Scorsese join these ranks, as he joined the Terence Winter-created HBO series Boardwalk Empire as an executive producer, directing the pilot as well. With the show coming to an end in 2014 after five seasons, fans of the series were excited to learn that it wouldn’t be the last collaboration between the trio, as Scorsese and Winter would be working together again to create a new show for HBO.

Titled Vinyl, the show will be another period piece, moving from the 1930s to the 1970s, and focusing on the music industry this time. The Rolling Stones band member Mick Jagger will also be joining Scorsese and Winter on the show as a producer, and Scorsese will once again helm the pilot. The show will star Bobby Cannavale, »

The Wolf of Wall Street meets Goodfellas in teaser for the Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger-produced TV series set to air in 2016

Monkey’s excitement level is already turned up to 11 about Vinyl, HBO’s upcoming drama set in the 1970s Us music industry that is co-produced by Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter (The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire). Due to air in 2016, it stars Boardwalk Empire’s Bobby Cannavale as record-label boss Richie Finestra, as well as House’s Olivia Wilde, Max Casella and Ray Romano. HBO has just released the first trailer, which doesn’t disappoint, featuring Carnavale ingesting copious quantities of drugs against a backdrop of rock shows and Studio 54-style nightclubs. Unsurprisingly, as Scorsese and Winter last worked together on movie The Wolf of Wall Street, there are also bundles of cash, popping champagne corks, a first-person voiceover – and a finale featuring a dose of Goodfellas-style violence. »

HBO unveils a new trailer for Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger’s Vinyl

Vinyl: watch the trailer for Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger's punk drama

7 August 2015 2:37 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

We’ve had a first glimpse at HBO’s upcoming series Vinyl – and it’s predictably full of cocaine, guns and voiceovers

From the title downwards, HBO’s upcoming drama Vinyl is clearly an homage to one of the most fetishised periods of music: 1970s New York, where the carpet was thick, the coke was pure and the only thing louder than the guitars were the suits.

The city was a now-mythical crucible for three of the most vibrant styles of music ever – punk, disco and hip-hop – all of it borne out of soul and garage rock. No lesser talents than Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger are pitching into this heady mix, the former directing the pilot and the pair co-producing. The show follows Richie Finestra, played by Bobby Cannavale, a record exec trying to give his label, American Century, a kick up the backside with a New York Dolls-style punk band. »
