The Reason Why You Are Unfamiliar with the Story of When The Game Stands Tall is the Reason Its a Great Story

3 hours ago | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

When the Game Stands Tall is a movie based on real life story about a high school football team's continuous streak of 151 games won. However, Coach Bob Ladouceur and Assistant Coach Terry Eidson never focused on the streak. Instead, they trained the De La Salle Spartans to become fine young men of character.

Author Neil Hayes wrote the book from which the movie is based on. He followed the team to practice nearly every day for a year. The Spartans' streak is the national record for number of games won in a row in any sport, professional or amateur, but according to Hayes, their victories are understated in the community. It's the school's choice not to display their winning records.

"A couple of years ago, one of the player's father who was a carpenter wanted to build a trophy case," says Hayes. "The player said, 'No, it's not what you put on the shelf, »

Jim Caviezel & Michael Chiklis Talk When The Game Stands Tall, Their Sports Backgrounds and the Insanity of American Horror Story: Freak Show

18 August 2014 4:48 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Jim Caviezel & Michael Chiklis – an odd couple if ever there was one.  Caviezel has made a name for himself as a somber and understated actor, his work in The Thin Red Line and The Passion of the Christ compelling in that he never forces anything or goes for that “big” moment. Chiklis, a bundle of volatility, never holds anything back, perfectly encapsulated in his performance as Vic Mackey – one of the great antiheroes of the modern television landscape.  In When the Game Stands Tall, both actors are cast true to form: Caviezel as the quiet and introspective Coach Bob Ladouceur, Chiklis as his loudmouth Assistant Coach Terry Eidson. Together they form a compelling yin and yang, bouncing off each other naturally, many of the best moments in the film coming from their natural repartee. In the following interview with both actors, they discuss their sports backgrounds, playing to type as the hothead & the introvert, »

World's Smallest Woman Jyoti Amge Joins American Horror Story: Freak Show

14 August 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Taking a page from Tod Browning's cult classic Freaks, "American Horror Story: Freak Show" has hired the shortest woman in the world, Jyoti Amge, to appear as a character in the upcoming series.

Per Wikipedia, Amge (born 16 December 1993), a resident of Nagpur, India, is the world's smallest living woman according to the Limca Book of Records and Guinness Book of Records. On her 18th birthday she was officially declared the world's smallest woman by Guinness Book of Records with a height of 62.8 cm (2'6").

Her restricted height is due to a growth anomaly called achondroplasia.

Showrunner/exec producer Ryan Murphy shared the news via Twitter, including a photo of Amge with "Ahs" star Jessica Lange.

Well, the cast of this October's "American Horror Story: Freak Show" keeps getting more interesting. The newest addition to the cast, which recently announced Patti Labelle, is Jyoti Amge, a woman who holds the Guinness Book of World Recrods title for "world's smallest woman."

Amge, who previously appeared on an episode of "Body Shock" and guest starred on the Indian version of "Big Brother," stands slightly over two-feet-tall (hence Lange holding her like a little doll). She is joining a cast that includes Sarah Paulson (as the two-headed lady), Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, Gabourey Sidibe, Frances Conroy, Michael Chiklis and Wes Bentley. Plot details have yet to fully emerge, but at least some of it takes place »

Lange plays the manager of one of the last operational freak shows  left in North America during the 1950s. She will undoubtedly be under pressure to close the doors, and if past seasons are any indication, she or the show's living attractions won't »
