Every year, the glittering lights and unique experience of Broadway lures Hollywood actors to the East Coast; some are veterans of the stage and others are making their Broadway debut. Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), James Franco (This is the End) and Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) all made their Broadway debuts earlier this year, with O’Dowd receiving a Tony nomination for Of Mice and Men and Cranston winning a Tony for All The Way. Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), who hadn’t been on Broadway since his 2004 run in Assassins, scored his first Tony nomination and win for Hedwig and the Angry Inch this summer.
The Broadway lineup for the end of the year hosts a number of Hollywood actors making their Broadway debuts, and they are joined by an illustrious group of Broadway vets returning to the stage.

When it comes to the really iconic characters in film history, we tend to get tremendously attached to the actors that play them. We assign ownership to these characters, and kind of forget that they didn’t always belong to the actors that brought them to life. Luke Skywalker wasn’t always Mark Hamill, and Indiana Jones wasn’t always Harrison Ford. Once upon a time, these parts were up for grabs, and these actors had to audition for them just like everybody else, competing with hundreds of other hopefuls. It’s amazing to sit down and watch the auditions that landed them these fantastic roles, which effectively changed the course of their careers.
But equally interesting are the auditions of actors who, for whatever reason, didn’t get the part, but went on to become celebrities for their work on other projects regardless. It’s a classic what if scenario. »

September 13th, 2014, 7:01am– We finally have our very first official picture of Rupert Grint as Frank Finger on stage in It’s Only a Play. The picture was taken by photographer Sara Krulwich for The New York Times and it shows Rupert in action as the pretentious theater director alongside Nathan Lane as the playwright’s “best” friend. Rupert Grint, left, and Nathan Lane in "It's Only a Play" at the Schoenfeld Theater in New York. We love how Rupert looks in this play! Hopefully more pictures will be released when we get a little closer to the October 9th opening night. As a bonus, we have also uploaded two new versions of the recent photoshoot Rupert took part in for The New York Times where they focused on the new talent on Broadway this fall season.

August 28rd, 2014, 6:35pm– Although our attention is pointed towards New York City tonight as Rupert Grint is just about to make his Broadway debut at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, we would like to take a minute to post this lovely new image from Moonwalkers. It was posted on Instagram by Rupert’s co-star Ron Perlman and shows a sneak peak from Empire Magazine‘s “On Location” section which has a feature on Moonwalkers. 10518124_1530420807192653_1064126966_n In related news, an interview has popped up which was conducted on the set of Moonwalkers.

August 20th, 2014, 5:43pm– Yet another article has surfaced from yesterday’s eventful press conference for It’s Only a Play and this time we get to learn what Rupert Grint‘s co-stars think about our favourite redhead and his upcoming Broadway debut. He told us in June that he was feeling terrified about being on stage in New York and this is apparently also the impression he gave his co-stars when first meeting them. i.1.rupert-grint-party-report Megan Mullally talks about that here: “But he’s adorable and lovely, and he was an absolute basket case for the first week or so. The first night when I met him, there was a little dinner, and he was standing outside, smoking a cigarette, and I was, like, ‘Are you Rupert?’ And he said he was, and he just instantly announced that he was terrified. I said, ‘Oh, you’re going to be great. »

★★☆☆☆Premièred at last year's San Sebastian Festival, The Unbeatables (2013) - previously entitled Metegol (Foosball) - is a curious breed of animated adventure fodder, and not merely because it's Academy Award-winning director Juan José Campanella's follow-up to the widely different The Secret in Their Eyes (2009). In his youth, skilled foosball player Amadeo (Rupert Grint) wiped the floor with Flash (Anthony Head), a cocksure bully who was left red-faced. Years later, while Amadeo has struggled to make much of a name for himself, Flash has become a pro football player. He returns to his hometown with the intention of bulldozing it flat and erecting a massive stadium in its place.

Domhnall Gleeson played Bill Weasley in both Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows films, but the coveted role didn't give him the recognition that Rupert Grint, Daniel Radcliffe or Emma Watson got. "Nobody on the street has ever stopped me from Harry Potter!" Gleeson says. "People stop me for a comedy sketch I did where I was shitting in a bottle—that's what people back home recognize me for." Gleeson's anonymity won't last long. After all, he's one of several actors appearing in the highly anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII. While the 31-year-old Irish actor can't disclose the details of his involvement—who can?—he does jokingly tell Vulture, "I didn't know »
Oscar-winning Argentine director Juan José Campanella's 3D animated feature has been a box-office hit in Latin America but the customised British version doesn't altogether work. The British voices and British football references seem incongruous given that the characters are South Americans. The animation itself is highly inventive, especially in the final showdown match when the shy hero Amadeo (voiced by Rupert Grint) and his team of tiny table-football characters, shorter than the blades of grass, take on the might of the team put together by thuggish narcissist Grosso. µ »
How do you rank perfection? Duncan has a go, as he lists the top 25 Jason Statham films...
For regular Den Of Geek readers, it will come as little surprise to see this list come round. We've chosen our favourite Statham films before, but such is the productivity of the great man, it was decided that a mere top ten was no longer large enough to contain his ever growing body of work. Last time I mentioned updating this piece to the man himself back in 2012 due to his insane workload, he cracked up and responded, “My productivity is overwhelming! 'Have a fucking day off!'”
Since this list has now expanded to encompass 25 of his movies, it seemed only right to include multiple sequels, with his big trio of action franchises all spawning some thoroughly entertaining fare worthy of mention, though I’ve tried to exclude the personal bias that »
Having won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film with the disquieting drama The Secret in Their Eyes, few would have predicted that Argentine director Juan José Campanella would have turned his head to the children’s animation. Yet that is exactly what he’s done, presenting his latest project, The Unbeatables.
The film tales the story of a foosball team that come to life, and we spoke to Campanella about his decision to try something so different, and how comedy translates to other countries. He also tells us about the inevitable pressure that comes with a project that follows an Oscar winning film, and about assembling his British cast, which consists of Rupert Grint, Rob Brydon and Anthony Head.

When winning an Academy Award, what follows such an accolade and the elation that comes with it, is pressure. A pressure as to what the filmmaker will do next, can they match the ingenuity of their preceding endeavour, and will they create another picture considered Oscar worthy? Well for Argentine auteur Juan José Campanella, he’s surprised us all, following the hard-hitting, sombre drama The Secret in Their Eyes, with the enchanting children’s animation The Unbeatables. It’s unlikely to match the critical acclaim of the aforementioned title – but that doesn’t take anything away from what is a charming, accomplished piece of cinema that will have a universal appeal.
Amadeo (Rupert Grint) has two loves in his life; foosball, and Laura (Eve Ponsonby). He’s skilled in the former – boasting an unbeaten record on the table in the local bar. As for the latter, well, he’s working on it. »

Hindsight is fun. While it’s hard to spot patterns, coincidences or ironies while events are happening, hindsight (plus internet search engines) can reveal all of the above.
As series eight of Doctor Who approaches then, we thought it might be fun to dig back through the show’s official press bumf to see what was happening behind the scenes in the run-up to Peter Capaldi being announced as the next Doctor. When did the search for Matt Smith’s successor start in earnest? Who first suggested Peter Capaldi? Who knew he’d won the role, and when? What did he get up to in the months he knew, but couldn’t tell? And who had to tell a few porkies in order to keep the secret safe? »
Growing up, Daniel Radcliffe always thought Harry Potter would die at the end of J.K. Rowling’s books. “Because of the prophecy with Lord Voldemort,” Radcliffe says on a recent afternoon in New York, between cigarette puffs. “I thought, ‘How is she going to get out of that one?’ ” He finally worked up the courage to ask the bestselling author when she came to see him in the London production of “Equus” in 2007. “I was happy to be proven wrong,” Radcliffe says. “For an actor, what more can you wish for? You get a death scene — and then you get more screen time.”
Even though Voldemort couldn’t finish off Potter, someone else has. The culprit is none other than Radcliffe himself, who was cast to play the boy wizard at the age of 11 in 2001’s “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.” Over the next 10 years, the eight “Potter »
