Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson on the Oscars' Red Carpet Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson at the Academy Awards Eli Wallach and wife Anne Jackson are seen above arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, held on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The 95-year-old Wallach had received an Honorary Oscar at the Governors Awards in November 2010.

Delayed film debut The Actors Studio-trained Eli Wallach was to have made his film debut in Fred Zinnemann's Academy Award-winning 1953 blockbuster From Here to Eternity. Ultimately, however, Frank Sinatra – then a has-been following a string of box office duds – was cast for a pittance, getting beaten to a pulp by a pre-stardom Ernest Borgnine. For his bloodied efforts, Sinatra went on »

Sarah Harding's productive day in studio

24 April 2015 4:13 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Sarah Harding had an ''amazingly productive'' day in the recording studio. The former Girls Aloud member has been busy working on new songs for her solo album and she is very happy with the tracks she has laid down so far. In a post on her Twitter account, Sarah wrote: ''Another long but amazingly productive day in studio writing and recording yesterday! Can't wait for you guys to hear what I've got cookin (sic)'' The 33-year-old singer has been extremely busy of late, having landed a role in 'Coronation Street' as the love interest of Tracy Barlow's long-lost ex-husband Robert Preston. Speaking about her upcoming four episodes in July, she said: ''I can't believe it. I found out a few weeks ago but it was in the pipeline for a while. The producers know that I love the show. I do charity work with them and, at an event, »

Wigging Out: Great pop culture hairpiece moments from 'Americans,' 'Melrose' & more

16 April 2015 4:16 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last night's "The Americans" included a moment where one of the spies removed their wig to dramatic effect. Between that and a similar "How to Get Away with Murder" scene from earlier this season, it's been quite the year for powerful wig removals. That has me thinking about other moments from TV and movies that drew big emotion — or comedy — from wigs or toupees coming off at a particular moment, including (loads of old show spoilers coming, involving both lack of hair and, at times, lack of life), with links or embeds where available... "Melrose Place": Kimberly lets her hair down In the show that defined watercooler television for much of the '90s, no moment was crazier, or more talked about, than Marcia Cross's Kimberly revealing the literal scars she wears that will lead her to wreak vengeance on Michael and so many other residents of that apartment complex. »

Oscar Winner Went All the Way from Wyler to Coppola in Film Career Spanning Half a Century

11 March 2015 2:18 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright and Matt Damon in 'The Rainmaker' Teresa Wright: From Marlon Brando to Matt Damon (See preceding post: "Teresa Wright vs. Samuel Goldwyn: Nasty Falling Out.") "I'd rather have luck than brains!" Teresa Wright was quoted as saying in the early 1950s. That's understandable, considering her post-Samuel Goldwyn choice of movie roles, some of which may have seemed promising on paper.[1] Wright was Marlon Brando's first Hollywood leading lady, but that didn't help her to bounce back following the very public spat with her former boss. After all, The Men was released before Elia Kazan's film version of A Streetcar Named Desire turned Brando into a major international star. Chances are that good film offers were scarce. After Wright's brief 1950 comeback, for the third time in less than a decade she would be gone from the big screen for more than a year. »

'The Last Starfighter' Remake Eyed by 'Star Wars' Writer

28 February 2015 2:08 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though not a substantial hit when it first arrived in theaters way back in 1984, The Last Starfighter, renowned for being one of the first movies to ever use CGI visual effects, has gained quite a cult audience over the years. A remake seems like a no brainer, especially with its timely story of a video game obsessed teenager who is called upon to save the universe. But that may not happen anytime soon according to writer Gary Whitta, who loves the idea of doing a reboot. Unfortunately, it seems the rights are currently tied up and almost impossible to obtain.

Remaking The Last Starfighter is Gary Whitta's dream project. And he's not alone. There are apparently many in the industry who would love to take on the project. About remaking The Last Starfighter, the former Star Wars Spin-Off writer states:

"Man, I wish. I'm one of a very long »
