Image Source: Getty / Kelly Lee Barrett Dylan Minnette has stolen the hearts of basically everyone with his portrayal as Clay Jensen in Netflix's 13 Reasons Why, but as fate would have it, the actor's heart already belongs to someone else. The 20-year-old has been dating 19-year-old Ray Donovan actress Kerris Dorsey for a few years now, and the two frequently post about each other on social media. While it's hard to resist their young love now, they actually shared sibling love before anything else. Image Source: Everett Collection The two both appeared on the TV series R. L. Stine's The Haunting Hour, but didn't actually work together until 2014 when they played the son and daughter of Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner's characters in Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. That's right, the couple actually played brother and sister before striking up a romance. »

Ben Affleck would not only love to direct a female-led film, but he would love to direct ex-wife Jennifer Garner — there’s only one problem. “I would love to, are you kidding me?” Affleck told People. “I think that would be great. I’ve often said that I want to direct a movie that Jennifer was in because I think she’s so great and she could do something really cool.” He added, “The problem that gets in the way is that one of us has to be looking after the kids at home.” Also Read: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner »

Bryan Cranston is front and center in Wakefield, a peculiar tale about a distinctly unlikeable fellow. It is the story of a nervous breakdown, which manifests in a truly bizarre way. The film is almost a one-man show. Nearly all of the dialogue is presented as voice over narration. The premise is certainly original. It grabs you at first, but then descends into tedium as the runtime drags considerably. Based on a short story by literary giant E.L. Doctorow, Wakefield is adapted for the screen by writer/director Robin Swicord (Memoirs of a Geisha, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button).
The film opens with sullen New York City litigator, Howard Wakefield (Cranston), heading home to the wealthy suburbs after work. His train loses power en route. Exasperated and with a sour puss, he's forced to walk the remaining distance. When he gets to his driveway, he chases a nuisance raccoon »
The 44-year-old actor gushed about his estranged wife during a recent interview about his involvement with Red Nose Day, a U.K. special benefiting charities fighting child poverty around the world. Affleck, who is lending his Batman voice to the telecast, was asked about the new Wonder Woman movie and if he himself would be ever be interested in directing a female-led film.
"I would love to, are you kidding me?" Affleck told People. "I think that would be great. I've often said that I want to direct a movie that Jennifer was in because I think she's so great and she could do something really cool."
Of course, his and Garner's three children -- 11-year-old Violet, 8-year-old Seraphina and 5-year-old Samuel -- remain their top priority.

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, and to paraphrase those renowned seventies scholars the Brady Bunch, “When it’s time to change then it’s time to change.”
While I’ve tried my hardest to slowly sneak those changes in, it’s gotten to the point where we’ll need to do something more drastic if the few of you reading the Weekend Warrior on a weekly basis actually want it to remain coming to you on a weekly basis. Because of that, we’re going to try something different by not throwing in as much independent limited releases for those checking the column out, and making the column a little more focused at least for the time being. (I’m probably going to move reviews for my Top Picks over to my blog, which is easy enough to »

Ambition in film doesn't get enough credit these days – maybe because it's so rare. But the daring of writer-director Robin Swicord is all over Wakefield. Based on a 2008 short story by E.L. Doctorow (and before that, an 1835 tale from none other than Nathaniel Hawthorne), the film gets whisper-close to Howard Wakefield (Bryan Cranston), a New York lawyer who turns his life upside down. He's so fed up with the Groundhog Day-ish sameness of his routine – working in his Manhattan office, commuting home to his wife Diana (Jennifer Garner) and »
Ben Affleck is bringing a version of his Batman character to TV — all for a good cause.
As part of NBC’s star-studded Red Nose Day Special, which benefits charities fighting child poverty around the world, the Oscar winner will appear as a “stripped-down” version of the famous DC superhero — the first time Affleck is doing so outside of the Batman v Superman and Justice League films.
“I’m doing my Batman voice,” Affleck tells People about his involvement in the special. “No cowl — just the stripped-down, unplugged version.”
Might that be the same version that the father of three occasionally performs for his kids? »

When you become a teenager, the most important guys in your life become your crush, your boyfriend, and that hot actor in your favorite movie, but when you're 8, your dad still holds the No. 1 spot. Ben Affleck took full advantage of this fact when he took his daughter Seraphina to a father-daughter dance in La on Saturday night. According to E! News, the Justice League actor pulled out all the stops to make his little girl feel special, including renting a limousine to take them to the dance. Ben, who donned a sharp suit for the special occasion, also gave Seraphina a flower corsage to match the boutonniere she gave him. Once they arrived, the duo stayed close and had a great time. "The two were walking around holding hands and he was very sweet with her," E! News reports. "They both had a lot of fun dancing and hanging out with their friends. »

First time filmmakers often struggle to assemble a noteworthy cast, especially if they’re working with a limited budget and a small-concept, character-driven script.
Not so for Judy Greer, whose directorial debut, “A Happening of Monumental Proportions,” which premieres at the Bentonville Film Festival Friday in Arkansas, features an enviable roster of high-profile names, from Allison Janney and Jennifer Garner to Common and Bradley Whitford.
“I had never worked with Bradley, I’d never met him, and he’d always been someone as an actor I’d wanted to work with my entire career,” says Greer, who stars in the Fxx series “Archer” and in the upcoming summer release, “War for the Planet of the Apes.” “I was like, f**k it, I’m putting him in my movie because if I can’t work with him as an actor I’m putting him in as a director.”

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are moving on—figuratively and literally. After the Oscar winner officially started moving his clothes and other belongings out of their once-shared family home on Monday afternoon, the exes are looking ahead to continued co-parenting and stepping back into the dating pool—all while easing the transition for their three children.

"They will continue to spend holidays together and take family vacations," the insider said. "Nothing is going to change from the past two years, other than that he will »
Beloved character actress and national treasure Judy Greer would naturally apply the go big or go home mentality to her directorial debut.
“A Happening of Monumental Proportions” is a film that stars, among others, Common, Bradley Whitford, Allison Janney, Anders Holm, John Cho, Katie Holmes, and Jennifer Garner, which would probably be enough to get people in a theater, but it also happens to have a pretty hilarious, intriguing premise.
