From a newcomer award at the Deauville Film Festival in 2011 to a career tribute this fall, two-time Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain has come a long way in just three years. This year, she has been a part of four films: Christopher Nolan’s potential best picture nominee Interstellar, which opens in select theaters Nov. 5; J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year, which is opening AFI Fest Nov. 6; Liv Ullmann’s Miss Julie, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival; and Ned Benson’s The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and is a combination of 2013’s The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him.
After graduating from Juilliard in 2003, Chastain was plucked from relative obscurity by Al Pacino to star in his production of Salome at Los Angeles’ Wadsworth Theatre in 2006. Pacino chronicles »

Charlie Hunnam Films ‘Soa’
In between takes, Hunnam attempted to cover himself with a tan tarp. Appearing to have some trouble getting ready for the scene, Hunnam cracked a smile while holding a prop gun into the air, as members of the crew looked on. As per usual, Hunnam, in character as Jax Teller, was donning jeans and a plaid shirt under his motorcycle club vest. However, instead of his signature white sneakers, he was sporting leather biker boots.
Also new for Samcro president Jax Teller was his motorcycle. Instead of the sleek black Harley Davidson he’s typically shown riding, he hit the streets in a royal blue bike. It’s believed that the two-wheeler is the one that had belonged to his late »
Sons of Anarchy Recap
Finally, Jax (Charlie Hunnam) seems to be realizing that he’s no match for the ruthless August Marks. More than his lack of manpower and smarts is the fact that he cares about his men and his family; he has things to lose. Surprisingly, instead of being relieved that Jax is over his scheme, Chibs (Tommy Flanagan) encourages him to stick with the plan.
Finding Bobby is Samcro’s first order of business. In order to get Bobby back, Tyler (Mo McRae) says Marks wants the pastor’s body and to know where his wife and stepson are. Every 24 hours that they hold out, Bobby will lose a body part. Unfortuantely, Tyler’s guys can’t find Bobby, »
Sons of Anarchy is on the back end of its final season, and the world as fans know it is starting to crumble. Samcro is no longer exempt from the consequences of their decisions, and as Jax’s (Charlie Hunnam) confidence continues to rise and fall in “The Separation of Crows,” so do members of his crew.
Ever since Tara (Maggie Siff) was killed off, Samcro has been on a downward spiral, and not just in the way that fans have come to expect. Sons of Anarchy has always been able to push past the bad times to pull off a spectacular season finale, which more than anything else, gives fans a reason to tune in season after season. But this season the narrative is more convoluted then ever.
Kurt Sutter is a master of creating perfect endings. Fans will look past any lulls the story might have along the »

Haven’t gotten around to Tuesday night’s latest edition of “Sons of Anarchy” just yet? Well then flex those clutch hands, light up another smoke and get your reflecting faces on so that we can chat all about it here. “How could I not see this coming?” Jax’s question was the theme throughout “The Separation of Crows.” We kicked off and ended the episode with the Samcro leader pondering and reflecting on all his latest moves—the death toll, betrayals and now Bobby, who is indeed alive despite what I wrote last week. I hadn’t imagined “Sons” would venture into torture territory, but hey, monkeys can be wrong in their theories too and I should have known better. Of course they’re not going to miss an opportunity to lop off pieces of the former vice prez, whom we learned was targeted for being the “smart” one. »

The actor reveals who shot him down for a part in the kinky adaptation.
Charlie Hunnam isn't the only hunky British actor that almost played the titular role in the upcoming adaptation of best-selling erotic novel 50 Shades of Grey.
Video: 'Fifty Shades of Grey': Watch the Super Sexy First Trailer Now!
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Les Miserables star Eddie Redmayne admitted that during a press junket for the film, a reporter asked if he would consider the part of kinky businessman Christian Grey. He said yes, but soon received backlash from the trilogy’s author, E.L. James.
"She took to her Twitter feed to go, 'Under no circumstances!'" Redmayne recalls. "I was like, all right, all right! Am I that bad? I can put a whip in my hand. I can get all kinky, can’t I?"
The part of Grey eventually went to Redmayne’s fellow countryman Jamie Dornan, with whom the »
Today Guillermo del Toro took part in a press day to promote the YouTube Space House of Horrors that he's been involved with for the past few months. In that experiment, YouTube creators had the opportunity to create original videos on terrifying cinematic sets inspired by del Toro at YouTube Spaces in Los Angeles, London, Tokyo and New York, as part of a special global programming event. Those videos will start airing between now and Halloween. I was unable to make it down to the event today, but I'll be heading down to the YouTube space later this week and will come back with a full write-up. It's pretty cool since del Toro is helping to select the winner, who will get a development deal with Legendary Pictures. The sets they have built to shoot this stuff on are also truly astounding and we'll have some pics for you in that story later this week. »
