Corbett Eyes Sex Return

30 November 2008 11:02 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sex And The City star John Corbett is keen to reprise his role in the hit TV show for a sequel to this year's hit movie.

The HBO series was transformed for the big screen and the film's international box office success has paved the way for a sequel.

Lead actress Sarah Jessica Parker recently confirmed plans for a follow-up and Corbett, who played Carrie Bradshaw's love interest, Aidan Shaw, in the show, is desperate to get involved.

And Corbett hopes his character will be able to steal Carrie back from Mr. Big, who she married in Sex and the City: The Movie.

He says, "I'd relish that moment more than you can ever imagine. There may even be a murder involved. It's payback. I think Mr Big deserves it. It'd make a great ending to the movie." »

Spielberg Sharing Secrets with Diablo Cody

16 July 2008 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- Steven Spielberg just has too many ideas for his own good.  According to Variety, the filmmaking powerhouse has shared yet another idea with Oscar-winning scribe Diablo Cody. The Juno writer will be penning a super-secret untitled comedy for DreamWorks, based off of Spielberg's cinematic musings. Cody's Showtime series, "The United States of Tara," which she is exec producing, was also based off of an original Spielberg idea. The sitcom stars Toni Collette and John Corbett and is currently in pilot stage. Cody first got Spielberg's attention when Mandate Pictures was in search of a domestic distributer for her teen pregnancy blockbuster. Spielberg reportedly even considered directing the pic. Cody's sophomore project, Jennifer's Body, is currently in post-production and set for wide-release next year. The dark comedy/horror pic has been compared to the Heathers, featuring a cheerleader possessed by a demon, who then feeds odd of boy around town. »

Corbett Finds A Way To Beat The Cops

24 March 2008 6:20 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

My Big Fat Greek Wedding star John Corbett has urged male drivers to take kids with them on all trips - after learning that cops let speeding fathers off lightly.

The actor, who once trained to become a Los Angeles Sheriff's Deputy, picked up tips from real-life cops while researching his new role in action film Street Kings.

And the hunk reveals one piece of advice he received will always stick with him.

He explains, "What I did find out from a street cop doing this movie is that whenever he pulls over a car, if it's got kids in it he never gives a ticket.

"He said that he felt that if he gives that dad a ticket the dad drives away p**sed off at the cops and the kids pick that up. Now he drives away and says, 'Hey, cops are pretty cool.'

"Those kids grow up with a whole different idea of cops. I like that philosophy." »

Corbett Failed Cop Exams

24 March 2008 12:11 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor John Corbett loved playing a Los Angeles cop in his new action film Street Kings - because he once spent a year training to become an L.A. County Deputy Sheriff.

The Sex And The City star reveals he spent much of 1982 with top police recruits working out for the force - but he failed to make it as an officer.

He recalls, "I was working in a steel factory as a boiler maker but my dad tried to become a Deputy Sheriff and he didn't make it, so I tried.

"Every three months you go in for agility tests and if you pass that you move onto interviews and oral exams. Ultimately I didn't make it, I wasn't Deputy Sheriff material." »

Corbett + Reeves Terrified By Car Stunt

21 March 2008 11:46 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actors John Corbett and Keanu Reeves were left battered, bruised and bloody after a hairy car chase scene in their new movie Street Kings.

The two tough guys were sent rolling around inside a made-for-the-movie Go Mobile car with co-star Amaury Nolasco and a cameraman, with Corbett speeding through Los Angles.

Corbett says, "It's a choreographed stunt with the real cars coming at us. A couple of times we smacked the side of a bus and there's really no special effects; that's really us flying through traffic at about 50 miles per hour for about a mile and a half.

"Keanu has a handcuff in my mouth, I'm trying to drive and these two (Reeves and Nolasco) are going at it with full force. His fist is swinging by me and the wind is like a hurricane coming by and they're just going at each other, kicking each other. They're just hitting each other with everything they've got.

"The director yelled cut and we had to go back to the set and they're both just sitting there rubbing their shoulders and wiping the blood off their lips. That scene was pretty intense."

Reeves, the star of the new fast-paced thriller, plays a cop trying to clear his name after he's accused of killing a colleague. »

Corbett joins 'Tara' pilot

19 March 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

John Corbett has been tapped to star opposite Toni Collette in Showtime's comedy pilot United States of Tara.

The project, from Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody, centers on Tara (Collette), a woman with a multiple personality disorder.

Corbett will play her husband, Max Gregor, a ruggedly handsome contractor who lives a life of stress and tries to read as much as he can about his wife's condition.

The role is familiar territory for Corbett, who played hunky carpenter Aidan Shaw on HBO's Sex and the City.

It also extends the actor's relationship with Showtime. He starred in the cable network's 2006 pilot Manchild.

Craig Gillespie is directing the pilot for Tara, which is slated to begin production in April in Los Angeles.

Corbett, who recently signed to co-star in the indie romantic comedy Baby on Board, is repped by CAA and Steve Lovett Management. »
