Fans of FBI honcho Walter Skinner – Which Is Everyone – rejoice. The gruff-voiced desk warrior will be back for more testy teamwork with the frustrating maverick Fox Mulder and growling about how his ass is in a sling. Like they were ever going to do it without him.Very happy to announce that Walter Skinner will once again be getting all grumpy and bitchy with his two wayward kids. Very happy.— Mitch Pileggi (@MitchPileggi1) April 20, 2015If you’re organising some kind of alien conspiracy, be warned: Skinner (and his ass-sling) will there and deeply cranky when the show returns to Fox on a limited-run basis. Filming is scheduled to get underway this summer, with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson back as Mulder and Dana Scully respectively.The Lone Gunmen-style scuttlebutt is that Cigarette-Smoking Man, Aka William B.

'X-Files' Reboot: Mitch Pileggi Will Return as Skinner!

20 April 2015 3:41 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, Fox confirmed that their beloved sci-fi series The X-Files is coming back for a six-episode event series, with original series stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprising their roles as FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Earlier this month, it was revealed by David Duchovny that Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) and Cgb Spender, a.k.a. the Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis), will also be back. While we don't have official confirmation on the Cigarette Smoking Man quite yet, Mitch Pileggi confirmed on his Twitter account today that he will be back as Walter Skinner in The X-Files event series. Here's what he had to say below.

"Very happy to announce that Walter Skinner will once again be getting all grumpy and bitchy with his two wayward kids. Very happy."

Aside from David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi appeared in the most episodes of The X-Files throughout its nine-season run. »

Robert Sheehan on saying the c-word in front of kids, wanting to try Shakespeare

17 April 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tourette syndrome has gotten the Hollywood spotlight from stars like Amy Poehler in “Deuce Bigalow,” Bill Murray in “What About Bob?” and Elle Fanning in “Phoebe in Wonderland.” Media representation of the tic disorder has ranged from irreverently comedic to sweetly tragic. The new movie “The Road Within,” which opens in theaters Friday, aims for a bit of both – funny but also sweet and touching and respectful of those who have Tourette’s. In the film, 27-year-old Irish actor Robert Sheehan (“Misfits,” “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones”) plays Vincent, a teen dealing with Tourette syndrome following the death of his mother. He moves into a clinic, where he meets Marie (Zoe Kravitz), a girl with an eating disorder, and Alex (Dev Patel), a boy with obsessive-compulsive impulses. When the three teens steal their doctor’s car and escape the clinic, they embark on a road trip full of rebellious antics, »

Affliction Drama The Road Within Succumbs to Sentimental Uplift

14 April 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

It sounds like the perfect setup for a legendary tasteless joke: A boy with Tourette's, an anorexic girl, and an obsessive-compulsive neat freak steal a car and head for the beach. Had writer-director Gren Wells shown just a tad more irreverence or daring or creativity, The Road Within could have provided a whopper of a punchline. But this is, of course, a movie about affliction, and it ultimately succumbs to the bland, sentimental uplift we've come to expect from such outings. After his mother dies, Vincent (Robert Sheehan) is installed at a mental institution by his cold, career-obsessed father (Robert Patrick, of Terminator 2 fame). The twitch- and temper-tantrum-prone Vincent quickly becomes the bane of his control-freak roommate Alex's (Dev Pa »

Familiar "X-Files" Characters Will Return

1 April 2015 7:57 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It looks like David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson aren't the only familiar faces from "The X-Files" that are coming back for the six-episode event series revival.

Appearing on David Letterman's show this week, Duchovny was asked if another other of the original cast will be back. The actor said: "There's Gillian and I, we're original. Mitch Pileggi (Skinner) will come back, and the Cigarette-Smoking Man - if that means anything to anyone - will be coming back."

That's not the only report today as TV Wise says Annabeth Gish and Robert Patrick are slated to return as special agents Monica Reyes and John Doggett, but the site adds that no deals are in place yet.

Filming on "The X-Files" revival shoots this summer in Vancouver. »

Cigarette Smoking Man, FBI Assistant Director Skinner, And More Returning For 'The X-Files'

1 April 2015 7:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There are two ways the new, six-part, limited series of "The X-Files" could go — Agents Mulder and Scully could find themselves on a new adventure with fresh faces, or be given a case that has them interacting with many of the familiar folks we've seen before. And it looks like it's the latter that's shaping up. Robert Patrick (Special Agent John Doggett), Annabeth Gish (Special Agent Monica Reyes), Mitch Pileggi (FBI Assistant Director Skinner), and William B. Davis (Cigarette Smoking Man) are all expected to return to the series. But like most of the intel around the series right now, not much is known beyond this bit of news. It's not certain where, or how extensively, the characters will fit into the six-episode arc, and of course, plot details are under wraps. It'll be interesting to see what Fox does in regards to Cigarette Smoking Man, considering that smoking is »

31 March 2015 2:48 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Shrouded in shadows, Doom-Head is featured in creepy fashion in the first still from Rob Zombie's 31. Also included in our latest round-up is a casting update for the second season of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series and an exclusive excerpt from Doug Lavers’ sci-fi thriller, Rekindling of Hope.

Rob Zombie's 31: Played by Richard Brake, Doom-Head dominates the first official still from Rob Zombie's 31 (see below). Since the news broke earlier this month that Malcolm McDowell had joined the cast of 31 as Father Murder, more actors have joined the film's ranks:

Pancho Moler (2005's Bad News Bears, American Horror Story: Freak Show) plays Sick-Head. Jeff Daniel Phillips (The Lords of Salem, Halloween 2) portrays Roscoe, "the ass-kicking carney mechanic of Venus Virgo’s traveling show."

30 March 2015 10:55 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in January, during the TCA Winter Tour, Fox teased that talks were under way to bring back the hit sci-fi series The X-Files for an Untitled X Files Reboot. The network confirmed last week that the show is indeed returning with a 6-episode event series. We know that original stars David Duchovny (Fox Mulder) and Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully) are reprising their roles, but no other cast members are confirmed at this time.

"I have ideas for everyone. Their availability is subject to their regular paying jobs. Of course, I'd like to bring everyone possible back, but it's who's going to fit into the story and who's available."

Terminator Genisys motion poster: See Schwarzenegger become T-800

27 March 2015 2:14 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger is transformed into the T-800 in a new motion poster for Terminator Genisys.

The latest Terminator movie uses a time travel storyline to alter events from the very first instalment of the blockbuster franchise.

When the menacing Skynet sends its T-1000 killing machine (Lee Byung-hun) to murder humanity's savior Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke), resistance leader John Connor (Jason Clarke) helps his soldier Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) travel back in time to save his mother's life.

Kyle and Sarah join forces with a Terminator T-800 (Schwarzenegger) for a showdown of epic proportions with Skynet.

Terminator Genisys also features former Doctor Who star Matt Smith and Academy Award winner Jk Simmons in supporting roles.

Just as Schwarzenegger is reviving his role as the T-800, this sequel has Lee Byung-hun replacing Robert Patrick as the merciless T-1000.

Terminator Genisys opens on July 3 in the Us and the UK.

Movie Review – Kill the Messenger (2014)

6 March 2015 6:24 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kill the Messenger, 2014.

Directed by Michael Cuesta.

Starring Jeremy Renner, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Paz Vega, Michael Sheen, Robert Patrick, Tim Blake Nelson, Ray Liotta, Michael K. Williams, Barry Pepper, Andy Garcia, Rosemarie DeWitt and Oliver Platt.

Synopsis:

A reporter becomes the target of a vicious smear campaign that drives him to the point of suicide after he exposes the CIA’s role in arming Contra rebels in Nicaragua and importing cocaine into California. Based on the true story of journalist Gary Webb.

There’s so much deep and fascinating detail to cover in Kill the Messenger, it’s a wonder the film didn’t get swallowed up by the multiple strands which lay between conspiracy thriller, journalistic cautionary tale and biopic. It’s a credit to director Michael Cuesta and lead star Jeremy Renner that their film ends up being one of the better ‘based on a true story’ films of the last year. »

Interview: Writer, Director Allison Burnett on ‘Ask Me Anything’

4 March 2015 1:14 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The number of writers who have adapted and directed their own novels as films is a very small and elite club, and it includes writer/director Allison Burnett. His 2014 film, “Ask Me Anything,” is being released on DVD on March 3rd, 2015, and features Britt Robertson, Justin Long, Christian Slater and Martin Sheen.

Ask Me Anything” was adapted by Burnett from his 2009 novel “Undiscovered Gyrl,” and is a gritty and multi-layered story of a girl blogger whose truth telling gets in the way of her expectations. Up-and-coming actress Britt Robertson portrays Katie Kampenfelt, taking a sabbatical between high school and college. Along the way, she can’t help being attracted to older men, including characters portrayed by Justin Long, Christian Slater and the always virtuous Martin Sheen. “Ask Me Anything” is a modern and incendiary love story, if loving yourself becomes necessary for survival.

Kill the Messenger review: Jeremy Renner in buzzing electric form

4 March 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Michael Cuesta; Screenwriter: Peter Landesman; Starring: Jeremy Renner, Robert Patrick, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Paz Vega, Michael Sheen, Andy Garcia, Ray Liotta, Rosemarie DeWitt; Running time: 112 mins; Certificate: 15

It only takes one small-town journalist to make a difference in Kill the Messenger, a true-life conspiracy thriller in the vein of All the President's Men, with The Hurt Locker and The Avengers' Jeremy Renner in buzzing electric form as the titular scribe. His defining moment is a 1996 series of articles uncovering the CIA's involvement in aiming to depose the Nicaraguan government, an effort funded by sales of crack cocaine – mainly in South Central, Los Angeles.

Apart from the dodgy foreign politics, issues of race and class are squarely in the frame as government spooks deem the lives of some of their own citizens expendable when weighed against the cost of arming the Nicaraguan Contra movement (who supply and distribute the coke in the Us, »

Kill The Messenger Review

3 March 2015 4:45 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Michael Cuesta

Cast: Jeremy Renner, Rosemarie DeWitt, Barry Pepper, Oliver Platt, Michael Sheen, Andy Garcia, Jena Sims, Robert Patrick

Certificate: 15

Run Time: 112 minutes

Synopsis: A reporter becomes the victim of a smear campaign after exposing a link between CIA backed Contra rebels in Nicaragua, Nicaraguan drug trafficking and the outbreak of crack cocaine in America’s inner cities. 

The longer I cogitate on Michael Cuesta’s Kill The Messenger, the more I realise just how unobtrusively compelling this film truly is.

Inspired by the life of Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Gary Webb (Jeremy Renner) and his ‘Dark Alliance’ exposé on the explosion of crack cocaine in the United States (which inevitably ruined his career), the film draws attention to the power and reach of fourth and fifth estate journalism and to the subjective objectivism of its gatekeepers.

Having said all that, if you take the time to reach beyond this »
