Brigitte Nielsen Joins ‘Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets’ Series, Replacing Actor Busted for Child Porn (Exclusive)

14 July 2017 8:48 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Brigitte Nielsen has been cast in “Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets” superhero-themed TV action series, taking over the villain role vacated by Mark Salling, who was indicted last year for receiving and possessing child pornography.

Shankar, who is independently producing the half-hour show, told Variety that Nielsen plays a “modified version” of Salling’s character. The director re-shot scenes with the Danish-born thesp earlier this month and said “Gods and Secrets” is now in post-production.

“I just kind of reached out to her,” Shankar said, saying he’s been in touch with Nielsen ever since he was trying to put together an all-female movie adaptation of “The Expendables” five years ago.

Nielsen’s casting in “Gods and Secrets” was confirmed by her rep at Henderson Represents Inc. She’s perhaps best known for her turns in ’80s movies “Rocky IV,” “Red Sonya” and “Beverly Hills Cop II.”

Re-shooting the scenes with Nielsen required bringing back other »

TV Review: ‘Hooten & the Lady’ on the CW

12 July 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If “Hooten & the Lady” feels somewhat predictable at times, that’s because it is. That’s not a knock on the series, though, because it knows it. In fact, that’s a major part of its appeal. The British Sky1 original series — now re-airing all eight of its episodes here as part of the The CW’s summer schedule — intentionally draws on that feeling of nostalgia that comes with an “Indiana Jones” flick or even “Romancing The Stone.”  From the Amazon to Rome to Egypt to the Himalayas, “Hooten & the Lady’s” first season attempts to tell a rather self-contained action-adventure story in the span of eight separate hours. And it succeeds.

First of all, the series’ peculiar title is more straightforward than it seems: Your typical American adventurer-cum-thief, Hooten (Michael Landes) has stubble, a tan, and a smile that can get any woman on his side. That is, except for the aforementioned “Lady,” Alex »

Great Job, Internet!: Read This: How Wedding Crashers became “this generation’s Animal House”

26 June 2017 9:34 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Wedding Crashers opened more than a decade ago to rave reviews, going on to unexpectedly make some $200 million at the box office. A new oral history from Mel Magazine digs into the movie’s success, using firsthand interviews with the movie’s director, writers, stars, and crew, and in the process it lays out a straight line from some of their behind-the-scenes decisions to the resurgence of bromance comedies (like The Hangover and many Judd Apatow movies) in intervening years.

Casting was crucial for this. The film hinges on the comic repartee of stars Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, but also features a slate of then-unknown talents like Isla Fisher, Bradley Cooper, and Rachel McAdams, as well as well-placed supporting spots from Jane Seymour and Christopher Walken. Director David Dobkin insisted upon several weeks of rehearsals, during which improvisation and actor input was considered and then put into a »

Ed Catto: Live and Let Love the One You’re With

5 June 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Last week, the front page of The New York Times mourned the death of Roger Moore. Shockingly, they ran a photo from Live and Let Die showing the actor, as James Bond, in bed with Jane Seymour, right there on the front page.

How fitting. But there’s a catch. While I’m a big James Bond fan, amongst 007 fans, Sean Connery is always revered at the “real” face of Bond. I get that. And if fact, when I read James Bond prose adventures I generally conjure up Connery’s face and voice as I visualize the scenes.

On the other hand… there was a 70s sentiment that admonished us all to love the one we’re with. And growing up, Roger Moore was the Bond I was with.

I clearly remember the day when my parents were debating the merits of taking my brother, Colin, and me to see a movie. »

Jane Seymour on How Roger Moore Put Her at Ease When She Was a Nervous 20-Year-Old Newbie on Live and Let Die

26 May 2017 1:17 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

He was just the second man to play James Bond since Sean Connery, and she was a 20-year-old newcomer taking on the mantle of “Bond girl” in her first major role.

But looking back on Live or Let Die some 44 years later, Jane Seymour tells People that despite the pressure on both of them, Sir Roger Moore was always in her corner.

“He was very caring to me because I was a newbie,” the actress, 66, tells People. “I was 20 years old and had never been anywhere or done anything and was terrified of the whole experience, and he literally made jokes around me, »

‘Becoming Bond’ Director Sees George Lazenby and Daniel Craig as Kindred Spirits

23 May 2017 9:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Every serious 007 fan has a particular film that hooked them on the franchise. For Josh Greenbaum, the writer and director of Hulu’s new docudrama “Becoming Bond,” that film was the Pierce Brosnan blockbuster “GoldenEye.”

“That’s the one that did it for me,” says Greenbaum at a premiere screening at Cinefamily. “As many people my age will attest, the Nintendo game version of that film was huge. It took the movie and turned it into a first-person shooter where you could walk around the sets of a real James Bond film and kill your friends.”

Becoming Bond” tells the unlikely story of George Lazenby, a charismatic Australian fashion model who fibbed his way into starring in the 1969 classic “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.” Though many Bond aficionados consider it one of the best entries in the series, Lazenby stunned audiences around the world when he walked away from »

Jane Seymour on "Long Lost Brother" Roger Moore: "He Was Hilarious"

23 May 2017 6:36 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Jane Seymour recalled Roger Moore, with whom she co-starred in 1973’s James Bond movie, Live and Let Die, as a “long lost brother” and described him as being one of the funniest men in her life.

“We used to giggle terribly,” she said.

Moore, who portrayed Bond in seven movies starting with Live and Let Die, died at the age of 89 after a short battle with cancer.

Seymour was 20 when she nabbed the role of Solitaire, a Tarot card-reading psychic working for a Bond villain who loses her virginity to 007.

Another one of Roger Moore’s onscreen vixens is paying tribute to the beloved 007 star in the wake of his death.

"Becoming Bond" Screening With George Lazenby: Cinema Retro's Mark Cerulli Reports

19 May 2017 8:08 PM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

(The new documentary "Becoming Bond" is now showing on the Hulu network.)

By Mark Cerulli

Prior to seeing Josh Greenbaum’s illuminating documentary, Becoming Bond, which premiered on Hulu May 20th, I had dismissed George Lazenby’s mystifying refusal to continue as 007 as just another gullible young actor taking bad career advice; like Tom Selleck passing on Indiana Jones, Travolta nixing Forrest Gump, Thomas Jane handing Don Draper to Jon Hamm… but there’s more to it than that, a lot more as it turns out.

Cleverly combining interview footage of Lazenby, still hale and hearty at 77, with well-staged recreations, Becoming Bond dives deep into this complicated and impulsive star to understand How he could casually dump one of the most coveted roles in the history of film. As it turns out, that decision is symbolic of who George Lazenby really is: intelligent, charming, naïve but most of all, independent. »

Film Review: ‘Becoming Bond’

17 May 2017 9:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An Australian car mechanic turned male model, George Lazenby had the hardest job of any James Bond actor: He had to follow Sean Connery. Lazenby made just one 007 movie, 1969’s “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service,” and then walked away from the role that would have made him one of the world’s biggest stars. Why did he quit? Or was he fired? And just who was the mysterious man behind the mole? Intimate, irreverent and at times laugh-out-loud funny, Josh Greenbaum’s made-for-Hulu documentary “Becoming Bond” answers all these questions and more in the space of 92 mind-blowing minutes.

Part of the James Bond allure has always been the character’s status as a connoisseur, and to this day, some fans consider Lazenby to be the best Bond — an opinion that is empirically untrue for myriad reasons (not least of which is the fact that his dialogue had to be »
