Laurence Fishburne Puts a Hit on Fred Savage in Lacma’s ‘Goodfellas’ Live Read

23 January 2015 12:14 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“This is going to be a lot of fun watching people get killed!”

So joked director Jason Reitman as he kicked off the latest installment of Film Independent’s popular Live Read series on Thursday night with perhaps his boldest selection yet: Martin Scorsese’s “Goodfellas.”

At the event, which returned to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art following last month’s sojourn to downtown L.A., Reitman praised the gangster classic as having “a perfect screenplay.”

Written by Scorsese and Nicholas Pileggi, and based on Pileggi’s non-fiction book “Wiseguy,” the story chronicles the rise and fall of mobster-turned-fbi-informant Henry Hill.

To celebrate the film’s 25th anniversary, Reitman cast a fresh ensemble of actors, including Laurence Fishburne (in the part originated by Robert De Niro) and Fred Savage (in Ray Liotta’s signature role), to read the Oscar-nominated screenplay before a live audience.

14 January 2015 1:40 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Camp Firewood, home to the many high jinks of the "Wet Hot American Summer" crew, is getting crowded with all sorts of new characters.

The upcoming Netflix show has added a host of actors to the sprawling original cast, which will include practically all of the stars from the movie, even the really big ones, like Bradley Cooper, "Ant-Man" Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, and Elizabeth Banks.

A lot of the newest additions to the gang are all sort of regular collaborators with David Wain and his "State" crew by one or two degrees of separation, like Michaela Watkins, Lake Bell, Paul Scheer, and Rob Huebel, but there will be a few new faces as well. Josh Charles ("The Good Wife"), John Slattery ("Mad Men"), Jayma Mays ("Glee"), and Richard Schiff ("The West Wing") will also be joining us in the arts and crafts tent.

We're still waiting on a premiere date, »
