In The Brass Teapot, John (Michael Angarano) and Alice (Juno Temple) are a small town couple in their ‘20s, who are very much in love, but also very broke. Struggling to make ends meet while their friends enjoy the good life, a mysterious brass teapot in a roadside antique shop is seemingly the answer to all of their problems, when it starts spitting money out of its spout. But, as its demands for appeasement become darker and darker, its existence is a reminder that you should always be careful what you wish for. At the film’s press day, actor Michael Angarano spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about why this odd little film appealed to him, keeping the relationship very real amidst this fantastical story, how they got to play around a bit with the script, and how much he enjoyed shooting the emotionally abusive moments.

In the remake, just as in the original, Statham is a recovering gambling addict who make his money offering protection services.
Heat is set to hit theaters August 7, 2014.
One more thing, the gorgeous Sofia Vergara is also in the movie, which gives me the perfect excuse to include a pic of her.

Have you ever stepped back to wonder who in the contemporary film landscape is 2010s' Burt Reynolds? Someone who excels at bonkers action sequences and radiates a dangerous sex appeal? If you're thinking Jason Statham then you're in line with the filmmakers behind Heat, a remake of the 1986 crime drama that starred Reynolds as Los Vegas bodyguard with a past as mercenary and serious gambling addiction plaguing his present. Last November, Con Air helmer Simon West signed on to direct, lining up Heat to be his third feature with Statham, following The Mechanic and Expendables 2. Since then casting for the rest of the remake's roles has kicked off, and Deadline reports Michael Angarano has been set to co-star. The 25-year-old actor who has had memorable appearances in Steven Soderbergh's genre-bending spy thriller Haywire and Kevin Smith's controversial Red State is set to take on the role that Peter MacNicol »
Jason Statham stars as Nick, a recovering gambling addict who takes on protection and security jobs in Las Vegas. He puts it all on the line when he decides to take on the mafia, after his friend is badly beaten. Michael Angarano will play Cyrus Kinnick, a young billionaire tech wiz who hires Nick as a bodyguard and gambling adviser. Sofía Vergara also stars in an unspecified role. Burt Reynolds and Peter MacNicol portrayed Nick and Cyrus in the 1987 film Heat.

Christopher Plummer, Jean Dujardin, Meryl Streep, and Octavia Spencer to be back at the Oscars, this time as presenters Streep, Dujardin, Spencer, and Plummer, last year's Oscar winners in the acting categories (respectively Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor), will return to the Oscar stage this year -- but this time as presenters on the 2013 Oscar telecast, the show's two producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan have announced. None of the four actors are in the running for the 2013 Oscars. (Pictured above: Christopher Plummer, Octavia Spencer, Meryl Streep, Jean Dujardin all looking very elegant posing for photographers backstage at last year's Academy Awards ceremony.)

"Necessary Roughness" picked up the action about a month later for the mid-season premiere. A month later meaning a month after that surprise kiss between Dani and Nico, that is. Even though it's been a month, the kiss didn't offer her any more clarity as to what she should do now. In fact, it pushed her into therapy herself.
"What scares me is that I’m caught between the man that I love," Dani explained to her therapist, played by Peter MacNicol. "And the man that I am dangerously attracted to." She basically said she feels stuck in between them.
Nico is exciting and dangerous, while her heart still belongs to Matt. But she and Matt are nowhere close to the same page, which makes Nico look even more attractive in the now.
Elsewhere, Juliette decided to take up the torch from her father and run the team, which should »

It's 28 days past where we left the Necessary Roughness gang last summer - and Dani's got some strange "Frozen Fish Sticks" in her freezer. Oh, if that were her only problem.
Dr. Santino usually helps fix other people's messy lives, but this time it's her own life that needs fixing. So she's off to see old friend and colleague Dr. Gunnar.
I hope Peter MacNichol sticks around for awhile. I love how he won't put up with any of Dani's avoidance tactics that she uses when it comes to her own life.
According to Dr. Gunnar, I don't know means I don't want to tell you and anger is the consequence of being hurt. And best of all, he's forcing Dani to explore her feelings for Nico because as much as Dani's trying to tell herself otherwise, that kiss meant something.
She loves Matt but it doesn't change the fact »

Politics are an ugly business. A floundering campaign needs something to revive it and the person they choose does that but also brings her own troubles. What can.t be argued is that Julianne Moore morphs into her subject so much that it earned her an Emmy. John McCain.s (Ed Harris) in last place in the race for the Gop nomination. He needs something to reinvigorate his campaign. Strategist Steve Schmidt (Woody Harrelson) and manager Rick Davis (Peter MacNicol) know that their vice presidential candidate will either sink or reenergize the McCain run. Davis sees footage of Alaskan governor Sarah Palin (Julianne Moore) and thinks he has found the perfect person. A quick examination of her background finds »

Chicago – When the HBO film, “Game Change,” was first announced, it sounded rather unnecessary. Why would Alaska governor-turned-vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s overinflated celebrity deserve such a prestigious biopic? Wasn’t her TLC program, not to mention Tina Fey’s brilliant SNL parody, more than enough small-screen exposure for the oft-embarrassing politician?
Yet this film, superbly directed by Jay Roach, is less about Palin then it is about the superficial posturing that has taken over America’s political landscape. Mark Halperin and John Heilemann’s bestselling book of the same name explored how celebrity triumphed over substance during the 2008 election season, as Republicans scrambled to equal the game-changing candidacy of Barack Obama. Screenwriter Danny Strong centers his film on Steve Schmidt, the campaign strategist who backed Palin and lived to regret it.
Blu-ray Rating: 4.5/5.0
As played by Woody Harrelson, an actor who just gets better with every successive year, »
