Despite a film career that spans more than 30 years and countless genres, Keanu Reeves is by far best known as the star of action films like Speed, The Matrix and John Wick. Something about his calm, collected demeanor and physical precision just suits Reeves in these kinds of roles. So, it stands to reason that they would become his trademark. Yet, whenever the actor takes on anything other than the action/sci-fi thrillers people associate with him, he manages to surprise with his ability to carry stories that don’t involve a whole lot of ass-kicking. So, as the internet eagerly awaits John Wick: Chapter 2, Reeves headlines a decidedly less violent effort in courtroom drama The Whole Truth.
- Robert Yaniz Jr.
It’s been a curious few weeks for adult fare at the multiplex. With girls on trains, autistic accountants and ex-military vigilantes, there’s no shortage of movies that your mom would love. Courtney Hunt’s The Whole Truth fits nicely into that roster, but without the bestselling book, high concept or star power to warrant being a fall tentpole. It instead resembles a film whose script has been sitting on a shelf since 1996, cast included.
Situated as standard courtroom drama fodder, the film opens on Keanu Reeves’ cynical defense attorney Richard Ramsey having a bad time. Through the confines of some unwelcome narration, we learn that he is tasked with representing Mike Lassiter (Gabriel Basso), a teenager on trial for the murder of his wealthy father and neighborhood shitheel, Boone (Jim Belushi). Ramsay is on the wrong end of what appears to be an open-and-shut murder case. He is more or less defenseless, »

After Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters in December, details started to surface about a number of famous actors who were hiding in plain sight in unique cameo appearances, such as Simon Pegg as the junk dealer Unkar Plutt and Daniel Craig as a Stormtrooper. With the release of the first Star Wars spin-off Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just a few months away, it seems fans will be deprived of a unique cameo in this movie, according to Alan Tudyk. While the actor still does star as the new droid K-2So, he almost had another cameo that a certain group of fans would have surely loved.
Yesterday, the actor was joined by his Con Man web series stars Nathan Fillion, Pj Haarsma, Felicia Day and Nolan North for a Reddit Ama session, where one fan asked the group if they have a favorite cameo appearance in their career. »
Tum Bin 2 is already creating waves across the country and fans are eagerly awaiting for the film’s release. And now there is something more that all the fans can watch out for in the film.
The quintessential romantic sequence had to have the best location to go along the mood of the film. Although it was a difficult challenge for the makers of the film to create a perfect romantic aura for the film, Anubhav Sinha, the director of the film, while doing the recce, drove for several hours from Glasgow to Glencoe in search of a suitable venue in Scotland.
Coincidentally, he chose the same spot that was used to film a dramatic sequence for Skyfall that starred Daniel Craig and Judi Dench. The scene in Tum Bin 2 features newcomer Aditya Seal, who did not want to miss the opportunity of taking a picture at the iconic spot. »

No American actor has ever been cast in the role of James Bond. But given how often British actors are now hired to play Americans (do most audiences even know that performers from Carey Mulligan to Charlie Hunnam hail from across the pond?), the time may have come to break that tradition. Especially given that there’s an American who was put on earth to play Bond: Jon Hamm.
He’s positively Sean Connery-esque. Which is to say, Hamm is the rare actor who combines old-fashioned matinee-idol dash with an impossibly cool façade and a diamond hardness that would make him utterly convincing as a lethal existential cutthroat. (Could he do the whole British thing? Of course! He’s a fantastic actor.) Now don’t get me wrong: I worship Daniel Craig. But if he’s getting as tired of Bond as he has sometimes insinuated, why not let Hamm step right up? »

As of last Monday night, Warner Bros grew a Superman problem. That’s the night that Supergirl started its second season on its new home, the CW… where one could argue that it always belonged anyway. The show guest starred Supergirl’s cousin, Superman, embodied on TV by Tyler Hoechlin.
If you don’t already know, DC – unlike Marvel – does not link its movie universe and its TV universe. Since DC Comics is currently in the Multiple Universe concept once more, it might help to think of their TV and movie universes as alternate dimensions. So we can have two Flashes, two Wonder Women – and two versions of Superman.
The DC movie version of Superman, as shown in Man of Steel and Superman vs. Batman: Dawn of Justice Whaddee Do Dah, is played by Henry Cavill and is a darker, more brooding, somewhat more Batman-ish Superman. His costume is also darker, »

The saga of James Bond 25 continues and at the moment, all bets are on. For months we have heard reports about Daniel Craig seemingly ready to abandon the franchise, with Sony and MGM doing everything they can to keep him onboard for at least one more movie. Recently, Daniel Craig walked back his previous "slash my wrists" comment and stated that he would miss being Bond. Now, the odds have tipped heavily in his favor, according to some sports betting professionals.
SportsBettingExperts.com recently published a new list of actors and the odds of them playing 007 in the next James Bond movie. Because of Daniel Craig's recent comments, he is now heavily favored to return for a fifth go as Bond in James Bond 25. For those who get betting odds, he is now going off at -175. Basically, the (-) figure is the favorite and the (+) figure is the underdog. »
The future of the James Bond franchise is very much a mystery right now, but we do have a new potential villain for the series. Well, at least we have someone who wants to play a Bond villain. In a recent interview, German filmmaker Werner Herzog threw his hat into the ring, saying he would make a good James Bond bad guy.
The director/actor/screenwriter was recently interviewed by Business Insider regarding his latest movie, the Netflix Original Into the Inferno. During the course of the chat, the subject of playing a James Bond villain came up and Werner Herzog not only expressed interest, but seemed very confident in his ability to play the part well. Here is what he had to say.
"I think I would be a good villain in a James Bond movie...They were fairly weak the last half-dozen of villains in James Bond movies. »
It’s been some time since we last reported on Letters From Rosemary – seven months, to be precise – but today the period drama has sprung into life with theater director Sam Gold closing in on a deal to take the reins.
Variety has the scoop, confirming that Gold, a stalwart of Broadway who’s coming off the award-winning Fun Home, will direct Emma Stone in the Rosemary Kennedy film. In what would be Gold’s debut feature film, Letters From Rosemary chronicles the upbringing of John F. Kennedy’s eldest sister – so often referred to as ‘The Forgotten Kennedy’ – who suffered from crippling mental illness from an early age due to medical complications during her birth in 1918.
Years later, Rosemary’s father whipped together plans for her to become one of the very first people to undergo prefrontal lobotomy at the age of 23. A primitive form of treatment, its failure left her permanently incapacitated. »

With the question of who's playing James Bond in James Bond 25 unresolved, we look back at the casting conundrums 007 has faced before.
Since 1962, fewer men have played James Bond than have walked on the moon. Despite the relatively long turnaround of the role, the subject of who might follow in the footsteps of Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig in the future has fuelled many column inches and tabloid splashes.
It feels as if speculation about the seventh 007 in Eon Productions' long-lived spy franchise has been at fever pitch since this time last year, when Craig was doing the promotional rounds for Spectre and commented that he would rather “slash [his] wrists” than play Bond again. It's only after a year of constant reports on the subject that his far more optimistic comments at last weekend's New Yorker Festival »
Joe Jonas made a visit to Reddit Tuesday, where he led a candid Ask Me Anything chat — discussing everything from his high-profile split from the Jonas Brothers, the rumors of his drug addiction-past and his, um, penis size.
Here are 5 of the biggest bombshells from the 27-year-old Dnce-frontman’s chat.
1. Joe lost his virginity to ex-girlfriend Ashley Greene.
At the beginning of this career, Joe and Jonas Brothers Nick and Kevin vowed not to have premarital sex — marking the very public statement by wearing purity rings.
But by 2010, Joe’s purity ring was out the window when he lost »

A celebrity Reddit Ama ("Ask Me Anything") is usually pretty illuminating, but when Joe Jonas sat down to chat with his fans with burning questions, he didn't hold anything back. Like, anything at all. The Dnce frontman, who just released a new music video for the band's single "Body Moves," chatted about everything from how the size of his penis compares to brothers Nick Jonas and Kevin Jonas, to the Twilight actress he lost his virginity to. In addition to being hilarious, Joe's questions and answers had a pretty revealing, Nsfw vibe. Apparently that explains all of those steamy music videos, huh? Check out his most eyebrow-raising responses below. On swiping his v-card with ex-girlfriend Ashley Greene: "I lost my virginity to this girl named Ashley. You can probably just Google it. It's pretty easy to figure out. I dated a girl named Ashley, so just Google it to »

Say what you will about Ben Affleck as Batman, or Jack Ryan, or any number of other action heroes that have seemed to be a stretch for the boy-next-door star, but Affleck is a terrific fit for “The Accountant,” in which he plays an autistic assassin. Though his choice in material is strong, the actor has always been a strange kind of thespian, one who seems so normal and non-actorly that most of his performances feel like watching one of your buddies up on screen, pretending to be someone he’s not. Here, Affleck, who formerly drew the short end of the stick playing the dumb townie to Matt Damon’s math savant, finally gets to embody the numbers whiz, and also to run around shooting some heavy-duty guns: It’s like Will Hunting and Jason Bourne rolled into one, brains and bullets. What’s not to love?

Tony-winning theater director Sam Gold is looking to make the leap to the big screen as he is in negotiations for the Rosemary Kennedy film “Letters From Rosemary.”
The Black List script tells the heartbreaking story of Rose Marie “Rosemary” Kennedy, first born daughter to Rose Fitzgerald and Joseph Kennedy, Sr., and the eldest sister of John, Robert and Ted Kennedy.
For Anonymous, this marks another film the banner can add to their growing list of hard-hitting dramatic material. In addition to “Spotlight,” Anonymous was behind “The Revenant,” which saw Leonardo DiCaprio take home an Oscar for best leading actor, and Alejandro G. Inarritu for best director. They are also behind TV shows like “Mr. Robot” and “True Detective.”

Shortly after the last James Bond movie Spectre opened – which is about a year ago – Daniel Craig proclaimed that he was done with Bond saying he’d rather slash his wrists than do another one. Well, a year on and talk has changed, and it sounds like he may be more open to taking on the role one more time (at least) after all.
“They say that sh*t sticks, and that definitely stuck,” Craig said, referring to that comment. “It was the day after filming [stopped on ‘Spectre’]. I’d been away from home for a year. Boo-hoo. It’s a good gig. I enjoy it.”
“As far as I’m concerned, I’ve got the best job in the world,” Craig added. “I’ll keep doing it as long as I still »

When Daniel Craig said he’d “rather break [a] glass and slash [his wrists]” than take on the role of Bond yet again, many were convinced that “Spectre” was the last we’d see of the actor as the iconic British spy. Related: Idris Elba On Playing James Bond: ‘I Think I’m Too Old For That’ Now, […] »

After giving the middle “Goldfinger” to the franchise and insisting he would rather kill himself than make another Bond movie, Craig has had a change of heart.
In an interview about his life and career at the New Yorker Festival over the weekend, Craig suggested that playing the iconic secret agent a couple more times may not be such a bad gig, after all.
“As far as I’m concerned, I’ve got the best job in the world. I’ll keep doing it as long as I still get a kick out of it. If I were to stop doing it, I would miss it terribly,” Craig said.
Craig’s future as 007 looked to be uncertain after comments he made during a press tour promoting “Spectre” last year.

Daniel Craig certainly seems to have a strange relationship with James Bond.
While promoting Spectre, the latest flick in the long-running franchise, Daniel Craig famously stated some pretty horrendous things about playing the role: that he would rather slash his wrists than doing another film was the one quoted most often.
Speaking at the New Yorker Festival last Friday, Craig addressed these statements
"They say that s**t sticks, and that definitely stuck. It was the day after filming [finished on Spectre]. I'd been away from home for a year."
Apparently, when he’d done that interview, all the time spent away had taken its toll on him and his morale. Now in hindsight, Craig seems a lot more forgiving of the character, and cognizant of the fact that he’s in an enviable position in the industry.
"Boo-hoo. It's a good gig. I enjoy it."
But does this mean we can expect »
