New Trailer For Bill Murray’s Rock The Kasbah Arrives

28 August 2015 11:56 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In July, Bill Murray rocked Hall H with his first-ever appearance at Comic Con. Now comes this brand new trailer for Open Road Films’ Rock The Kasbah.

A has-been rock manager from Van Nuys, California stumbles upon a once-in-a-lifetime voice in a remote Afghan cave in Rock the Kasbah, a dramatic comedy inspired by stranger-than-fiction, real-life events and directed by Oscar winner Barry Levinson.

Richie Lanz (Bill Murray), dumped and stranded in war-torn Kabul by his last remaining client (Zooey Deschanel), discovers Salima Khan (Leem Lubany), a Pashtun teenager with a beautiful voice and the courageous dream of becoming the first woman to compete on national television in Afghanistan’s version of “American Idol.”

Richie partners with a savvy hooker (Kate Hudson), a pair of hard-partying war profiteers (Danny McBride and Scott Caan) and a hair-trigger mercenary (Bruce Willis) and, braving dangerous cultural prejudices, manages his new protégée into becoming the “Afghan Star. »

Rock the Kasbah Trailer: Bill Murray Rocks the Something Something

27 August 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In Barry Levinson's Rock the Kasbah, Bill Murray plays a cantankerous, on-the-outs record producer who insists he's still got it. (He doesn't.) It's sort of a play on his 1970s SNL character Jerry Aldini. Murray accidentally becomes a talent scout for Afghanistan's version of American Idol and goes on one of those wacky trips during which he experiences zany antics and eventually an epiphany. The movie also features Zooey Deschanel, Kate Hudson, Danny McBride, and Bruce Willis. No word yet if the shareef don't like it.Murray also appeared in Darlene Love's new video for "Forbidden Nights." The legendary wall-of-sound singer has a new album, Introducing Darlene Love, coming out in September. It features Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Webb, Linda Perry, and Steven Van Zandt. The video also features appearances by Springsteen, Costello, Van Zandt, Joan Jett, David Letterman, and Paul Shaffer. It's a pretty spectacular video. »

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 »

Interview: Actor Jake Johnson on Evolving in ‘Digging for Fire’

20 August 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Actor Jake Johnson is expanding his presence in movies, and much of that has to do with his collaboration with director – and Chicago native – Joe Swanberg. Johnson and Swanberg have teamed up for their second film, after the success of 2013’s “Drinking Buddies, and are listed as co-writers in “Digging for Fire.”

Digging for Fire” is a character study of Tim and Lee – portrayed by Jake Johnson and Rosemarie DeWitt – at some serious crossroads. They are in their thirties, have been married for a number of years and have a child, but both seemed stalled in the “is that all?” syndrome. When Lee’s wealthy client asks them to housesit, a series of events take place that separate them for a night, and allows them the freedom to explore some other possibilities. The film is filled with symbolic purpose, questions of life that are familiar to couples in that age range, »

If more than one friend said that someone looked exactly like you, how intrigued would you really be?
