10 Observations About Johnny Depp's 'Into the Woods' Pic

22 October 2014 1:54 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Entertainment Weekly just gave us a chilling new visual from "Into the Woods" with Johnny Depp in costume as the Wolf. Sigh. Dear God. Take a look. We had these ten reactions.   1. "Into the Woods" is going to feel like an Evanescence video directed by Tim Burton. 2. I'm guessing the Wolf's parents are a Steven Tyler mic stand and a Stevie Nicks yard sale. 3. Can Russell Brand or Keith Richards sue Johnny Depp? Do they have to sue each other first? 4. When did Johnny Depp become an airbrushed Mickey Rourke? 5. I think he's about to cry.  6. Little Red Riding Hood is looking at us like, "Can you believe I'm supposed to be scared of this freakish art dealer?"  7. Furry sleeves? He looks like Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer dyed turquoise.  8. You know Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter sit around dreading the day they'll have to play each other. 9. It's so easy »

Trailer for Elijah Wood's Set Fire To The Stars

19 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A trailer has been released for Elijah Wood's new film Set Fire to the Stars. The film is set in the 1950s, and Wood plays an aspiring poet named John M. Brinnin "who has his ordered world shaken when he embarks on a week-long retreat to save his hell raising hero, Dylan Thomas." He has basically been given the task of coordinating the first trip to the Us for Thomas, who is played by Celyn Jones. It's a road trip movie that kind of has the same plot as the Jonah Hill and Russell Brand comedy Get Him to the Greek, only this one centers on a poet instead of a rockstar, and it's a black and white movie that takes place in the '50s.

The movie was directed by Andy Goddard (Downton Abbey), and it looks like an amusing and fun film. It premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival, »

Watch: Russell Brand Films Outside Fox News Building, Security Threatens Arrest

19 October 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Russell Brand has been open about his criticisms about Fox News in the past, and decided to take his issues right up to the headquarters.

The British comedian posted a video this week in which he took a cameraman to the Fox News headquarters in New York City to film some of his webcast “The Trews.” His filming was disrupted when a security guard approached him and instructed him to leave.

Brand asked the security guard who the building belonged to, and the man replied that it didn’t matter.

“Do you want to get arrested?,” the security guard asks Brand.

According to Brand, Sean Hannity has booked an appearance for him on his show “Hannity,” but had canceled it, which Brand took issue with.

Russell Brand was never booked on the show and therefore couldn’t have been canceled,” said “Hannity” executive producer Porter Berry in a statement.

Russell Brand: 10 Important Trews Shows You Need To See

19 October 2014 6:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

youtube.com

Russell Brand is no longer the reckless, crotch-flashing MTV persona he was when he first hit our screens; but it’s definitely helped in the grand scheme of things. Now he’s exactly where he needs to be in order to whip up some righteous change – for all of us – in this melting pot of a system.

In a world where the richest 85 people alive boast the same wealth as half the population, can you truly say you’re happy with the way things are? Brand’s new book, Revolution, makes change not only possible, but inevitable and fun. From someone who has grown up in a single-parent family, been on the dole, and battled years of drug addiction; he’s as (if not more) qualified to write this stuff than anyone with political academia behind them.

His YouTube show “The Trews” gives exhilarating eye-openers on a regular basis, »

Russell Brand Threatened With Arrest Outside Fox News Headquarters

18 October 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Russell Brand's feud with Sean Hannity and Fox News is heating up. In a new episode of Russell's web series, The Trews, the actor stopped by the cable network's NYC headquarters in an attempt to tour the newsroom and meet its employees. "Here we are at Fox's headquarters, all the greats are here - Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity - all the people who refuse to have us on the show," Russell says, referring to his canceled appearance on Sean's show. Russell goes into detail, explaining his thoughts on Fox's reporting of Islamic culture, accusing the network's on-air talent of perpetuating Islamophobia. Soon Russell is approached by a security officer, who asks the actor, "Do you want to get arrested?" Russell also ventures into the building, where things get even more awkward. While Sean, Bill, and Fox News have not yet released an official statement about the incident, Donald Trump »

Donald Trump & Russell Brand's Twitter Feud

17 October 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Donald Trump is stirring the Twitter pot again – this time going after Russell Brand.

It appears that Trump is not a fan of the actor and took to Twitter to let his 2.7 million followers know.

"I watched Russell Brand @rustyrockets on the @jimmyfallon show the other night—what the hell do people see in Russell—a major loser!" he wrote, seemingly out of the blue and unprompted.

Revolution by Russell Brand review soft-soap therapy when we need a harder edge

16 October 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

His tract is heavy going, light on politics and, in places, beyond parody. Has the leader of the rebellion missed his moment?

This time last year I hosted a Swedish academic who had come to Cambridge to give a talk about Montesquieu. Only she didn't want to talk about Montesquieu. She wanted to talk about Russell Brand. "This Russell" as she called him a few days earlier she had never heard of him and she couldn't remember his surname had just given his Newsnight interview to Jeremy Paxman in which he expressed his disgust at the political system and called for revolutionary change by total disengagement. The YouTube clip was already being passed hand to virtual hand among Scandinavian intellectuals like a samizdat copy of Solzhenitsyn behind the iron curtain. The excitement was palpable at last, someone had said the unsayable. "Is this the moment?" my Swedish friend wanted to know. »
