Peter Dinklage Has a Bananas Mullet in Pixels

5 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Here's a look at Peter Dinklage all decked out in his super-mullet for Pixels, an Adam Sandler–led, Chris Columbus–directed comedy about old-school video-game champions who have to help defend the Earth against an alien invasion. Sandler and Dinklage star alongside Josh Gad, Kevin James (who plays the president), Ashley Benson, Jane Krakowski, and Michelle Monaghan. Dinklage's mullet is probably supposed to seem trashy, tacky, and dated, but that is some high-end ombré in the back. Perhaps this mullet is secretly luxe. »

Posterized: Famous Singer Biopics of the Past 50 Years

2 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Oscar loves a lot of movie-things with predictable regularity though it should be noted that those things go in and out of style (when was the last time you saw a hooker with a heart of gold?). But one thing that never seems to go out of style with filmmakers: Biopics of musicians. Whether or not Amy Adams ever gets around to her Janis Joplin picture, or Hathaway goes through with the Judy Garland picture (I'd so prefer her to do Liza Minnelli who hasn't been done!) or Jane Krakowski ever gets the greenlight for Jackie Jormp-Jormp, there's plenty to choose from in the library already. And awards bodies, not just Oscar, often choose them. It's as good a way as any to be noticed.

Tina Fey and Rachel Dratch's 1999 stage show is as great as it sounds

25 July 2014 12:02 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

One one side of Chicago’s Second City stage, Rachel Dratch performs a one-woman show about the 19th-century woman’s rights activist Edwina Garth Burnahm. On the other, Tina Fey monologues about her vagina. This might sound like a fever dream you had after binging on Cheesy Blasters, but it actually happened.

A 1999 video of the the pair recently surfaced online, and if that description of the first sketch isn’t enough to get you hooked, then you have no soul. They performed Dratch and Fey at Second City as well as the Upright Citizens Brigade in New York City. »

Peter Dinklage Teases the Chance to Star in Chris Columbus’ Pixels

25 July 2014 3:13 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

With its release positioned just two weeks after Avengers: Age of Ultron, you can see why everyone’s getting excited about Chris Columbus’ upcoming blockbuster, Pixels.

Sony isn’t going to risk putting something people won’t want to turn out to see opposite Age of Ultron’s third and fourth frames. It’s already pegged to be the best thing we’ve seen Adam Sandler do in some time, which is a great prospect enough as it is.

In the past few days, the studio’s been teasing a couple of first looks at the film, and now they’ve launched a new promo ahead of its appearance at Comic-Con, inviting conventiongoers the chance to win a role in the movie.

Peter Dinklage rocks old school arcade moves in new 'Pixels' video

24 July 2014 3:54 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sony's upcoming Adam Sandler comedy "Pixels" seems tailor-made for Comic Con, and a new promotional video is a must-see for Peter Dinklage fans. "Pixels" finds middle-aged competitive games -- played by Sandler, Dinklage and Josh Gad -- facing an alien invasion inspired by classic arcade games.  In the below video, Dinklage ditches his "Game of Thrones" garments and sophisticated airs for some tattoos, a mullet and a sneer as he invites all the "Suckers" to come lose at the Electric Dreams Arcade.   Watch it here: Directed by Chris Columbus (the first two "Harry Potter" films) and inspired by the 2010 short by Patrick Jean, "Pixels" also stars Kevin James, Josh Gad, Michelle Monaghan, Brian Cox, Ashley Benson and Jane Krakowski. If you're in San Diego, "Pixels" has set up a video arcade at the Hard Rock Hotel "Pixels" opens May 15, 2015. »

Watch Tina Fey and Rachel Dratch's Outrageous Two-Woman Show From 1999

24 July 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Back in 1999 two upstart comedians, Rachel Dratch and Tina Fey, "accidentally" booked the same stage at Chicago's legendary Second City. So they decided to share the spotlight, performing their shows simultaneously: Dratch delivered a one-woman play about the obscure (possibly fictional) women's rights pioneer Edwina Garth Burnham; and Fey explored her sexuality in a series of monologues called, bluntly, "Cunt Poems."

9 July 2014 10:39 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The cast of Columbia Pictures adaptation of the short film Pixels is already pretty full with Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage leading the film about a group of video game experts who are recruited by the government to help deal with the threat of popular 1980s video game characters attacking New York City. In addition, Michelle Monaghan is on board the film as a weapons developer who also turns out to be a love interest for Sandler. Now another cast member has been added with Deadline reporting that "30 Rock" prima donna Jane Krakowski will play the First Lady in the sci-fi action comedy. More below!

Jane Krakowski Joins Adam Sandler In Pixels

9 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Audiences who have been missing their daily dose of Jenna insanity ever since NBC’s 30 Rock wrapped up are in luck – Deadline is reporting that Jane Krakowski has signed on to play another crazy character in the upcoming movie Pixels.

The actress will play the First Lady of the United States (to give you some perspective, the President is being played by Kevin James), who previously had a romantic relationship with the lead character (Adam Sandler). Though Pixels was originally dismissed as an Adam Sandler film, we actually do have reason to be excited for it. The flick, directed by Harry Potter helmer Chris Columbus, focuses on a group of old-school video gamers who become essential to combatting a powerful alien race which attacks after misinterpreting feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of intergalactic war.

So far, the cast that has been announced for Pixels is pretty inpressive. »
