"One of my favorite moments was with Channing," he revealed. "I said to him, 'You've done all these crazy things -- you've jumped out of helicopters into a lake, you've climbed on rock ledges, chased rattlesnakes -- what was your favorite bit?'" "My favorite part of the whole »

Robert Downey, Jr. continues to prove that playing Tony Stark pays almost as well as being Tony Stark. The Iron Man and Avengers: Age of Ultron star earned an estimated $75 million in the last year, putting him at the top of Forbes’s annual ranking of the highest paid actors for the second year in a row.
Downey’s success is all the more remarkable considering that, over the June 2013 to June 2014 timeline which Forbes used to measure wealth, the actor only released one movie: John Favreau’s festival film Chef. So most of Downey’s money comes from the »

On this week’s episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls, Bear and Zac Efron take on skydiving, tropical locations and then strip their shirts off and tie themselves together to rappel down a waterfall. To make sure that Zac doesn’t back out, Bear tosses their shirts and supplies over the edge. Fear of losing his shirt probably isn’t a big motivator for Zac. He never seems to spend much time wearing one anyhow.

By now, we’re all well-aware that Zac Efron has a penchant for taking his shirt off—he’s gone shirtless in a Nicholas Sparks romance, in a Seth Rogen comedy, even in Disney Channel Original Movies. But now he’s taking it off for… a show with Bear Grylls?
Famous survivalist Bear Grylls lured in some famous friends, including Ben Stiller and Channing Tatum, to go on remote adventures with him for new NBC reality show Running Wild. For Zac Efron’s episode, the two ventured into the Catskill Mountains of New York to repel down cliffs and jump out of helicopters—shirtless, »

The hits have been smaller, but so have the flops.
The summer box office is down 20%, but most of the films that have hit theaters over the last three months have a good chance of recouping their production budgets while still in theaters.
“We really haven’t had an out and out misfire yet,” said Jeff Bock, an analyst with Exhibitor Relations.
There’s been nary an “After Earth,” a “White House Down” or “The Lone Ranger” to harsh Hollywood’s mellow this summer. To say nothing of “R.I.P.D,” the D.O.A. science-fiction comedy that debuted nearly a year ago to the day, recouping only $78 million of its $130 million production costs plus whatever else it took to market this “Ghostbusters” retread.

Wentworth Miller has been tapped to play Leonard Snart, who becomes Captain Cold, on The Flash, which will lead us into the origins of the Rogues. In fact, Geoff Johns says that The Flash is the most faithful comic book adaptation that television has ever seen. “It’s probably the most faithful DC Comics adaptation ever. We’ve incorporated almost everything of the mythology into it and added a new backstory with S.T.A.R. Labs.”
Speaking of Miller, he talks to Details about his depression, coming out, and whether there’s a risk to an actor being out in alienating female fans. “No. The people onscreen aren’t the characters they’re playing. They’re our projection of who we want them to be. I think it »

From a wild romance with Michelle Rodriguez to a crazy stunt in the wild! Zac Efron, who never seems to run out of opportunities to show off his well-toned chest, appears in Monday's series premiere of Running Wild with Bear Grylls to go rappelling, among other things, with the famed adventurer and TV host. "We reached out to him and he kindly said he was a fan of the show and that he was in 120 percent," Grylls tells People. "He asked for the biggest, baddest adventure and it was an honor to oblige." Grylls, 40, said he chose an area of »

The chart updates continue. I've been thinking a lot about Foxcatcher and Love is Strange and whether or not Sony Pictures Classics will have the guts to campaign all four of those male leads as leads. Essentially they'd be asking for 80% of the category which would be extremely ballsy (no pun intended with four sets of them) but also honest. For these July updates I'm fantasizing that they will.
But the funny thing is: Best Actor is enormously crowded without any of that acclaimed quartet. Playing a real life character won't even get you very far because most lead actors are doing just that, thereby dulling its time-tested competitive advantage. I count at least 10 possibly major contenders this year in biographical roles: Cumberbatch, »

The franchise that launched Channing Tatum’s career limps its way to Las Vegas in “Step Up All In,” where characters with bum knees and broken hearts compete for a shot at a three-year casino dance contract. With even less plot than in previous installments to get in the way of its inventive 3D dance scenes, this fifth pic delivers on spectacle — especially in its nine-minute, flame-throwing Caesars Palace finale — but lacks in chemistry, trying to pair the leads of the second and fourth films after their co-stars dumped them. Although the series’ box office has been slipping, this “all in” reunion (minus Tatum) could reverse the trend ever so slightly.
By this point, the characters have reached an age where dancing for fun doesn’t cut it, so they must find a way to make a living in the famously brutal field, whose humiliating auditions and frequent rejections make »

Cameron Diaz and Jimmy Fallon were up to their usual crazy antics on "The Tonight Show" on Tuesday, facing off in a race in inflatable kayaks.The rules were simple: each competitor would paddle out of Studio 6-b through a "waterfall." From there, they'd encounter a "cranky old fisherman" in the hallway, as well as boulders and "salmon swimming upstream." Other hazards included two Elton John impersonators: one singing "the most annoying part" of "Crocodile Rock" and another named "Benny and the Jetski."Before they took off, Fallon joked, "Cameron and I have always been pretty serious athletic rivals."The "Sex Tape" star zoomed away from the starting post, leaving the late night host to abandon his kayak and resort to throwing salmon instead. Check out the crazy clip above to see these two in action!This isn't the first time Cameron and Jimmy have teamed up for a fun segment. »

London — Entertainment One is well-placed to retain its position as the U.K.’s top independent distributor after a strong first half of the year, and a muscular slate for the remaining months. But, as Alex Hamilton, managing director, eOne Films U.K., tells Variety, the company has aspirations to be considered on a par with the Hollywood majors.
EOne has been the top indie in the U.K. for three of the past four years, and last year finished ahead of two studios, Sony and Paramount, with its box office totaling more than £100 million ($171 million) for the first time.

Suggesting that multiple encores might be overdoing it, the blandly titled and assembled Step Up: All In is the fifth film in the street dance-powered series, the third in 3D — and its flattest use of the format yet — and also the third without the series’ only true star, Channing Tatum, whose combination of charisma and killer moves is again sorely missed. Nevermind the fact that this directorial debut from Trish Sie, a music video director and former competitive ballroom dancer, reunites stars from the four previous entries to try and compensate for that loss.

There are a lot of "what ifs" in the movie business. There are so many options when it comes to casting actors to play characters in movies. Superhero films are huge right now, and I love most of the actors that studios have cast to play these badass characters. Christian Bale as Batman, Andrew Garfield aa Spider-Man, Henry Cavill as Superman, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man are just a few of many. But these characters could have easily been played by other actors. It's hard to imagine that now since we're already invested in what's in front of our eyes.
I've come up with a list of actors who almost played some of these superheroes. You may already know about some of the close calls on the list, you may not, but when I was researching for this article there were a few things I didn't know before, »
