Fugit, Fanning Visit Crowe's "Zoo"

10 November 2010 8:08 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Patrick Fugit and his "Almost Famous" director Cameron Crowe will reunite on the drama "We Bought a Zoo" for 20th Century Fox says The Hollywood Reporter.

An adaptation of a memoir by Benjamin Mee, the story follows a man (Matt Damon) who used his family's life savings to buy a dilapidated zoo in the English countryside.

Mee and his children had to balance caring for his terminally ill wife and dealing with all the related animal issues including readying the zoo for a reopening.

Fugit's role is being kept secret, while Elle Fanning will portray a thirteen-year-old worker at the zoo despite being not legally old enough to have a job.

Scarlett Johansson is in final negotiations to play a zookeeper on the estate. Colin Ford will play Damon's son, while Thomas Haden Church is Damon's brother.

Crowe and Aline Brosh McKenna penned the script with filming to kick off »

Cameron Crowe reunites with “Famous” friend for “Zoo”

10 November 2010 4:47 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: Cameron Crowe’s last great movie, “Almost Famous,” came out nearly 11 years ago. Since then, he delivered a surreal psychological thriller (“Vanilla Sky”) and a personal romantic project (“Elizabethtown”), but both left most people cold.

Yet Crowe remains one of those filmmakers fans want to see succeed, because he has demonstrated such storytelling potential, and we track his moves hoping he’ll return to the inspirational realms of “Jerry Maguire” or “Say Anything.” So it’s encouraging to hear that Crowe plans to reunite with his “Famous” lead as he continues to cast his next project.

That would be Patrick Fugit, who reportedly has joined the already impressive ensemble for Crowe’s adaptation of Benjamin Mee’s memoir, “We Bought a Zoo.” The film stars Matt Damon as a man who cashes in his life savings to purchase a rundown British zoo. Colin Ford »

Patrick Fugit And Elle Fanning Join We Bought A Zoo

9 November 2010 2:26 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Cameron Crowe's next project We Bought A Zoo is coming together quite nicely, now that he's got Matt Damon in the lead role and Scarlett Johansson to play a love interest who works at the zoo that Damon's widower father buys in the beginning of the story. Now the rest of the cast has started to fill in around them, and there's one Crowe alum joining the mix. According to Deadline, Almost Famous star Patrick Fugit has been cast, alongside Elle Fanning. Fugit's role hasn't yet been specified, though it seems unlikely he'll play Damon's son, no matter how young the 28-year-old Fugit still appears. Fanning's character will also be a family outsider, a 13-year-old who helps tend the animals at the zoo and falls for Damon's character's son, who will be played by Colin Ford.

Cameron Crowe Taps His 'Almost Famous' Alter Ego For 'Zoo,' And Elle Fanning, Too

9 November 2010 1:32 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Cameron Crowe has set Patrick Fugit and Elle Fanning is in talks to star alongside Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson in We Bought A Zoo. Thomas Hayden Church is also in the Fox film based on the Benjamin Mee memoir. Fugit, you'll recall, played the young journalist who was essentially playing Crowe in Almost Famous, a memoirish film that chronicled the filmmaker's experience when, as a teenaged journalist, he was hired by Rolling Stone magazine to go on the road with the Allman Brothers when the band was on the rise. Nobody's saying what role Fugit will be playing, but Elle Fanning will play the role of Lily, a 13-year old who works at the zoo's restaurant. Too young to legally be working, she gets paid under the table and lives on the property. Her only parental figure is Kelly (Johansson), from whom Lily learns to be at ease with the animals. »

Episode Recap: Hawaii Five-0 - 1.02: "Ohana"

29 September 2010 12:47 PM, PDT | TVStar | See recent TVStar news »

It seems that Hawaii 5-0 (TV) is settling in, as it were, to the weekly routine of catching a case and then catching the bad guy. But, they keep the action taught, at least, as this episode opens with what amounts to a car jacking on steroids. And honestly, this episode also served as a reminder that you can apparently do anything with an iPhone. We meet ex-nsa specialist Roland Lowry (Scott Cohen), waking his kid, Evan (Colin Ford) up via vid-phone conference. Suddenly, Roland's SUV is t-boned by another van, and heavily armed Serbians come pouring out. People are killed, Roland and his super-secret-looking briefcase are kidnapped, and poor Evan is left screaming for his dad over the still-intact iPhone. iPhones can survive a car crash and gunfire and not even crack the screen! Back at the McGarrett house, Steve (Alex O'Loughlin) is having daddy problems of his own, »

Written by: Wopsican

Aloha from Oahu. Let’s recap Hawaii Five-o Episode 1×02 “Ohana”

One week after Hawaii Five-o’s pilot aired, the second episode starts where the first left off; with a gunfight. Seriously, if this awesome action stuff keeps up I might never stop watching this show.

We open with Roland Lowry (Steve Cohen), an Ex-nsa specialist, with an unbreakable looking briefcase in the seat next to him, being escorted down Ala Moana Blvd to a top-secret meeting. Mid-way through a phone conversation with his son Evan (Colin Ford) his car is t-boned by a white van, flipping Roland’s SUV upside down. Gunman from the van kill Roland’s bodyguards (hired from Braddah’s Private Security. Hilarious.) and kidnap him. We are left with Evan crying out to his father over the phone.

Cue iconic Hawaii Five-o theme song. I want to thank Jon Favreau for convincing the »

Supernatural: Lucifer Has Some Fun And A Young Sam Appears

1 April 2010 5:00 PM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Between playing the enigmatic Jacob on ABC’s “Lost” and Lucifer on the CW’s “Supernatural”, Mark Pellegrino has played both sides of the chess board. Which role does he enjoy playing more? Pellegrino has more fun with the darkside:

“I think the bad guys are more exciting. I have fun being bad.”

What is Lucifer’s end game? Pellegrino hinted a little mischief in store for “Supernatural”:

“I think Lucifer will be doing some things to f*** s*** up soon.”

Even more interesting is that a young Sam will be making an appearance before the season’s out as well. Colin Ford will be reprising the ten-year-old version of Sam again on “Supernatural” in an episode that does not involve a flashback episode like “After School Special”. This young Sam will have scenes with modern-day thirty-one year old Dean. Curiouser and curiouser!

Watch “Supernatural” on the CW, Thursdays at 9/8 C. »
