Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 adds Steve Agee

2 February 2016 1:34 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Steve Agee has been added to the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, according to a recent episode of Doug Loves Movies.

During the February 1st episode of the podcast, host Doug Benson was talking to guest Scoot McNairy (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), who he originally had gotten in contact with thanks to Agee, a mutual friend of theirs. When explaining why Agee wasn’t able to be on the show, Benson said, “… [Steve] just found out because he’s in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, he has to shoot that bullshit instead of being here with us today.”

Before 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy was released, Agee was rumored to be in the cast of the film, but director James Gunn eventually cleared things up and confirmed that he would not appear. Obviously, the two friends will now be working together on the sequel. »

Sundance 2016 Interview: Rob Zombie and Sheri Moon Zombie Talk Grown-Up Horror, Criticism and More for 31

26 January 2016 2:11 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Over this past weekend, Rob Zombie’s latest genre effort, 31, premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival as part of the Midnight programming slate. Daily Dead had the chance to catch up with both Zombie and his wife, Sheri Moon Zombie, the following day to chat about their latest collaboration.

During our interview, the duo discussed making "grown-up horror", the pros of utilizing some familiar faces from Zombie’s previous films for 31, dealing with criticism and so much more.

Thanks for chatting today guys and congrats on the movie, too. Not only is it really cool to see your evolution as a director over the years, Rob, but it's also really cool to see you, Sheri, change so much throughout all these different films too. I thought Charly was just a lot of fun in 31, and while I'm not going to ruin anything for anybody, that final scene with Richard [Brake] was so great. »

Steve Carell Receives His Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

6 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s a notable lineage in cinematic history of gifted comedic actors who have gone on to achieve great commercial and critical success as dramatic players. Perhaps the most famous example is Robin Williams, whose career began with his now-iconic role as a wacky, displaced alien on “Mork & Mindy” before giving way to parts with considerable heft, from the titular lead in “The World According to Garp” to his revelatory turn in “The Fisher King” to his Academy Award-winning performance as Matt Damon’s therapist in “Good Will Hunting.”

And there are scores of other comedians, from Jackie Gleason to Michael Keaton to Bill Murray, all three of whom received Oscar nominations for their dramatic work in “The Hustler,” “Birdman” and “Lost in Translation,” respectively.

And now there’s Steve Carell, who rose from a “senior correspondent” on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” to loner workaday hero Michael Scott »

'Making a Murderer': The Story Behind Netflix's Hit True-Crime Show

6 January 2016 8:59 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

For anyone connecting with Netflix over the holidays, it was anything but a merry Christmas. Premiering on Dec. 18, the streaming service's docu-series Making a Murderer plunged viewers deep into one of the strangest and most disturbing true-crime cases in recent memory. In 1985, Steven Avery, a 22-year-old whose family runs an auto salvage yard in Wisconsin, was found guilty of rape and sent to prison. Eighteen years later, he was released when DNA evidence proved he was innocent, as he'd asserted all along.

But then matters took the first of many »

Watch: Seth Meyers Parodies ‘Making a Murderer’

5 January 2016 11:06 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Seth Meyers returned to “Late Night” on Monday with a cold open that parodied a show that many spent their holiday time off binge-watching: Netflix’s docuseries “Making a Murderer.”

The “Making a Talk Show Host” spoof includes subtitled phone conversations, Wisconsin accents and terrifying cello music.

The video opens with a 30 Rockefeller Center staff member calling Meyers to tell him that it’s time to come back to work. Like anyone on the tail end of a holiday vacation, Meyers is adamant that he’s not ready yet.

“I gotta come back?” Meyers asks.

“They don’t got no more reruns,” the staffer on the other line responds. Meyers asks what time his show is on and is told 12:35 a.m.

“God, that’s late,” he says as the bit ends on a Photoshop of the late-night host with a Steven Avery-like beard.

Meyers wasn’t the »
