17 actors impersonating other actors: Leonardo DiCaprio's Jack Nicholson impression is crazy good

24 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

You might think you can do a decent Christopher Walken, but really, you can't touch the professionals. Here, from Kevin Spacey to Steve Coogan, are the very finest impersonators in the business (of other people in the business).

1. Kevin Spacey

Actors impersonated: Katharine Hepburn, Jimmy Stewart, Marlon Brando, Christopher Walken

To know Kevin Spacey is to know his impersonations. Willing to bust out a Brando at the drop of a hat, the former Old Vic head honcho was more than willing to obey James Lipton's commands during his appearance on Inside The Actors Studio.

Ps - there are Kevin Spacey impressions, then there are Kevin Spacey impressions in front of the people he's impersonating. Ladies and gentlemen, Al Pacino and "Al Pacino".

2. Bradley Cooper

Actors impersonated: Robert De Niro, Owen Wilson, Christopher Walken, Christian Bale

Everyone can do a Christopher Walken - even if it's a terrible Christopher Walken »

Rumor: Is George Miller Going From ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ To ‘Man Of Steel 2?’

21 August 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A little less than a decade ago, George Miller was within a hair’s breadth of directing a DC Comics movie — “Justice League Mortal,” a big budget take on Superman, Batman, et al. In 2007, Miller got as far as building sets in Australia, and cast all the major roles, with D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Armie Hammer as Batman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Common as Green Lantern, and Jay Baruchel as the villain, Maxwell Lord.  The movie was cancelled shortly before production got underway due to various factors, but it appears that fresh from “Mad Max: Fury Road,” Miller might be getting another chance to make his superhero movie. John Schnepp, the director of “The Death Of Superman Lives” (a documentary about Tim Burton’s earlier unmade DC Comics movie) was a guest on the DC Movie News Show (via Latino Review), and states that »

George Miller's 'Justice League' Documentary May Not Happen

20 August 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in May, we reported that filmmaker Ryan Unicomb is putting together a documentary that examines director George Miller's unmade 2008 superhero movie Justice League Mortal. The director has already secured private funding for the documentary, which is described as, "an unbiased account of the project's development, preproduction and cancellation, as well as the impact on the Australian film industry." We haven't heard anything about the project since then, and it seems there is one major obstacle standing in the filmmakers' way: Warner Bros. Pictures.

The director has contacted Warner Bros. Pictures, seeking permission to use their characters and images in the documentary, which is entitled Miller's Justice League Mortal. In an interview with If.com.au, Ryan Unicomb reveals that the whole project essentially hinges on Warner Bros.' approval. Here's what the filmmaker had to say, revealing that director George Miller and his producing partner Doug Mitchell are aware of his film. »

Halloween Horror Nights are a huge success at the Universal Studios resort in Hollywood, and we always anticipate what new movies they bring to their event every year.

This looks quite awesome. Check out the promo video for the planned maze below.

Other mazes this year include “Guillermo del Toro Presents Crimson Peak: Maze of Madness,” based on Legendary and Universal Pictures’ much-anticipated Crimson Peak film directed, co-written and produced by celebrated filmmaker Guillermo del Toro; “The Walking Dead: Wolves Not Far,” based on season 5 of the critically-acclaimed, Emmy Award®-winning television series, “Insidious: Return to the Further,” based on the bone-chilling Insidious film trilogy, »

13 August 2015 4:47 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Did you never want the apocalyptic party from 2013's This Is the End to stop? If so, then you might want to aim your car hood towards the West Coast this fall, because Universal StudiosHalloween Horror Nights Hollywood has announced an upcoming This Is the End 3D horror comedy maze.

The maze will feature a replica of Franco's Hollywood home and it sounds as though decisions participants make could determine whether they end up damned and left for dead or saved and sent to heaven (as seen in the film), offering a bit of a Choose Your Own Adventure flavor to the proceedings. »

21 July 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The wait is over, You’re the Worst fans. We finally have an official premiere date for Season 2 of the FX, now Fxx comedy series.

The comedy originally premiered on FX back in 2009 and ran on the network for four seasons before being moved to the younger-skewing Fxx for Season 5 in the fall of 2013. The success of veteran FX comedies like The League and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia on Fxx has allowed FX Networks to launch other series on the new network, such as the Jay Baruchel-starring Man Seeking Woman, and move other sitcoms that attract younger audiences, like You’re the Worst, »

Man Seeking Woman, “Teacup”

Written by Sofia Alvarez

Directed by Tim Kirkby

Aired March 11th, 2015 on Fxx

You won’t find Fxx’s Man Seeking Woman in many year-end discussions, but over the course of its admittedly spotty, watched-by-no-one first season, it staked a claim on some truly unique stylistic real estate in a landscape previously thought to be worked to death: the search for love. Over the last year, there has been a tremendous influx in the number of series trying to combine a “modern” and “edgy” take on modern courtship with ages-old sitcom tropes, but most of these have ranged from lackluster to outright lame. (See almost the entire new network comedy lineup, Fall/Winter 2014-15.)

Jay Baruchel dishes 'cartoon come to life' comedy 'Man Seeking Woman' (Exclusive Video)

22 June 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Jay Baruchel tells us he has found the perfect pitch for his new Fxx comedy “Man Seeking Woman”: “It’s a cartoon come to life!” During our recent webcam chat (watch below), the actor opens up about his leading role on the zany laffer, saying,“You really have no idea what it’s going to be from one scene to the next and who’s going to show up and what crazy stuff is going to happen." As he readily admits, "I don’t know how many TV shows you can say that about.” -Break- Why "Man Seeking Woman" is the best show that you are not watching According to the actor who plays Josh Greenberg, an unassuming young man navigating the dating scene, the narrative exists in an “elastic” reality, His misadventures often veer into fantasies that are largely inconsequential to the ongoing story. This makes “Man Seeking Woman” an unusual hyb. »

Goon 2: Jay Baruchel Shares First Image from the Last Of The Enforcers Set

20 June 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The hockey comedy Goon was a nice little underrated gem of 2011, and while there had been talk of a sequel in the interim, it was unclear if the follow-up would actually come to fruition. Cut to today, where production is indeed underway on Goon 2, which is officially titled Goon: Last of the Enforcers. We know filming has begun because Jay Baruchel just shared an image of the cast reunited on set, decked out in full hockey gear. In addition to producing and filling a supporting role onscreen, Baruchel co-wrote the first film alongside Evan Goldberg. For Last of the Enforcers, Baruchel is making his directorial debut, taking over helming duties from Goon’s Michael Dowse. Goon star Seann William Scott returns in the lead role as Doug “the Thug” Glatt, who in the first film went from bar bouncer to enforcer for a minor league hockey team. In the sequel, »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Annecy: DreamWorks’ Margie Cohn Unveils ‘Dragons: Race to the Edge’

16 June 2015 10:45 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Annecy – “This changes everything,” “How to Train Your Dragon” hero Hiccup (once more voiced by Jay Baruchel) mysteriously announces at the opening credit roll climax of DreamWorks Animation TV’s new series spinoff, “Dragons: Race to the Edge,” as he brandishes an emblazoned metal cylinder with a light-shaft.

He’s referring the cylinder, soon known as the Dragon Eye, but he could have been talking about the migration of “How To’s” smaller screen riff from Cartoon Network to Netflix that exclusively releases the first 13-seg season of “Race” on June 26, as part of its groundbreaking multiyear deal with DreamWorks Animation.

The Netflix impact is clear to see from the get-go of “Race to the Edge,” which had its European premiere Tuesday at Annecy Fest, the world’s biggest animation meet, with DreamWorks Animation head of television Margie Cohn fielding questions at a Q&A, after a screening of »
