‘American Horror Story’s’ Finn Wittrock Talks Fake Blood, Tighty-Whities and the Emmys

13 June 2015 11:54 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Is there any TV series with a higher volume of disturbing images than “American Horror Story”? Probably not. The anthology series’ latest chapter, “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” may have outdone its predecessors in this arena.

Most of the season’s terrifying moments were supplied by Finn Wittrock (“Unbroken,” “The Normal Heart”) as the murderous man-child Dandy Mott. Wittrock spoke to Variety about the joys of getting acquainted with stage blood, working with Jessica Lange and his hopes for Emmy season. Oh, and he wants you to know that he’s much nicer than the unhinged guy he plays on TV.

What was the best part of playing Dandy? 

The clothes. I just got to wear really nice Brooks Brothers suits and really go for it. That was fun. The best thing about the show is getting to work with the best people, and really going to dark depths with them. »

25 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

20th Century Fox's new Fantastic Four is sneaking up on us with surprising stealth. Other than the odd controversy, news on the film from Chronicle director Josh Trank has been relatively light.

So what do we know about the movie, other than it surely has to improve on its Jessica Alba and Chris Evans-starring predecessors? Read on to find out:

Fantastic Four will arrive in UK cinemas on August 6 and in the Us on August 7.

We've got a whole new take on Marvel's First Family

In case it wasn't clear from the fresh faces of the cast (and the uniformly bad memories of the 2005 and 2007 films), this movie will reboot the franchise based on Marvel Comics' very first comic book series.

3 May 2015 1:22 PM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Miles Teller and Kate Mara have blasted the ''unwarranted hate'' the new 'Fantastic Four' cast received. The two actors have revealed that they got a lot of ''negative'' criticism when they - along with Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell - were announced as the stars taking over from the roles made famous by Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Ioan Gruffudd and Michael Chiklis. Kate said: ''I was very surprised at first, before any trailers were out, how negative people were without seeing anything.'' Miles added: ''That is true. A lot of just unwarranted hate...'' However, the stars added that the public perception switched once the trailer for the film coming out this month was released. Speaking to MTV, Kate said: ''Then that very quickly changed, when we actually showed some footage. So that was a nice thing.'' Michael also revealed why he and the rest of the »

'Last Man's Mel Rodriguez's Career Boomerang is the Most Heartwarming Showbiz Story of the Year

24 April 2015 10:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After a long, long build-up, TV’s Golden Age is having its Mel Rodriguez moment; within the past few months, the distinctively cuddly-sized actor has occupied critical roles in not one but three acclaimed series. First, he was seen as Patsy de le Cerda, the hapless head nurse on HBO’s hospital comedy, Getting On. Then he popped up again as the short con accomplice of young Saul Goodman on AMC’s Breaking Bad prequel, “Better Call Saul.”  And finally, he made a surprise entrance as Todd, the incarnation of the “Last Man on Earth”s nightmare. We caught up with him by phone as he took a break from “doody duties,” tending to his three month old daughter, Stella. Hitfix: Suddenly, all my favorite shows are centered around Mel Rodriguez.  How did this happen? I don’t know man, I really don’t. I’m the luckiest guy in the world. »

First look at Jamie Bell as The Thing in 3 new Fantastic Four images

9 April 2015 10:46 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It's offical. The Thing got an upgrade for the reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise, and he’s (thankfully) a lot less orange this time around.

Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, The Adventures of Tintin) takes over the role of Ben Grimm – a.k.a. The Thing – from “The Shield”’s Michael Chiklis for August’s larger-than-life, universe-jumping retelling of the Fantastic Four. Joining Bell are Whiplash’s Miles Teller as Mister Fantastic, Kate Mara ("House of Cards") as Invisible Woman, and Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station) as the Human Torch.

After the 2005’s Fantastic Four and 2007’s Rise of the Silver Surfer failed to win over its core audience, fans were skeptical of another big screen adaptation of their beloved Stan Lee-penned comic book.

However, with Chronicle’s upstart young director Josh Trank and its stacked cast, this summer’s Fantastic Fourcontinues to prove the naysayers wrong. After its »
