Aubrey Plaza interview: Life After Beth, jazz, zombies, Scotland

1 October 2014 2:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We catch up with the star of rom-zom-com Life After Beth, Aubrey Plaza, to talk zombies, smooth jazz and Scotland...

Unless you’re Sherman Howard, not many actors get to play a zombie and still talk of their character. Aubrey Plaza gets to do both in Life After Beth, a zom-rom-com as deep as Daniel Radcliffe’s eyes.

With a reputation for deadpan, restrained performances (most notably as April Ludgate in Parks And Recreation), Beth gives Plaza a chance to get impressively unhinged.

Den Of Geek interviewed her during the Edinburgh International Film Festival, where we both left a lot of awkward pauses.

What’s your favourite zombie movie?

…I like all zombie movies. Uh…Night Of The Living Dead. That’s my favourite one.

Have you ever been to Edinburgh for the Fringe?

No. I…someone…people lied to me and told me the Fringe Festival was going on right now, »

10 Great Horror Film Performances

10 March 2014 2:09 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

The horror genre is much maligned in general and often those actors and actresses who decide to appear in a horror film find themselves attacked from all quarters. Those who don’t like horror look at these films as simply a bloodbath of masked monsters hacking down teenagers. It has always been much more than this however.

The horror genre can not only be incredibly subtle, it can also have some incredibly affecting performances. There is work from actors and actresses which can really make you feel the terror and the sorrow that they too are feeling. Yes, the work of the directors and writers goes a long way into creating this but it is in the actors that we as the audience can really connect.

This is not a definitive list, but it does aim to highlight some of the great horror performances since cinema began. You will hopefully have many others. »

Lex Luthor: Who played the Superman villain best?

7 February 2014 11:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Superman's nemesis Lex Luthor has been in the headlines recently after it was revealed that Jesse Eisenberg will be playing him in the upcoming Batman vs Superman movie.

The super-villain first appeared in the DC comic books in 1940 and, although the archenemy of Superman, he has also come into conflict with Batman and other superheroes in the DC Universe.

Originally depicted as a mad scientist who used his intelligence to create futuristic weapons, Lex Luthor evolved into a bald businessman and industrialist whose sky-high intelligence compensated for his lack of superpowers.

With Eisenberg stirring debate as the newest incarnation of the villain, we take a look back at the actors who've taken on Lex Luthor and ask who played him best.

Lyle Talbot (Atom Man vs Superman)

Talbot was not only the first actor to take on Lex Luthor, he was also the first live-action actor to play two »
