Gabriela Cowperthwaite, director of the controversial “Blackfish” — about the dangers, not to mention the cruelty, of keeping orcas in captivity at marine parks like SeaWorld — outlined how films like hers can affect change at a luncheon celebrating the documentary at Hinoki and the Bird, David Myers’ restaurant in Century City.
Heart, Barenaked Ladies, Willie Nelson and, most recently, Cheap Trick, have cancelled their appearances at SeaWorld in Florida, and Joan Jett asked the amusement park franchise to stop using “I Love Rock & Roll” as part of their shows, Cowperthwaite told the assembled who feasted on vegan fare.
Among those in attendance were actress Kate Mara, an advocate of the film who was there with actor/boyfriend Max Minghella, producer Manuel Oteyza, and fellow documentarians Louis Psihoyas (“The Cove”) and Mark Jonathan Harris (“The Long Way Home”).
She also used the opportunity to defend herself from certain allegations by SeaWorld, which »

Beyoncé wowed a crowd of about 18,000 people last night in La at the Staples Center during her most recent Mrs. Carter Show tour stop - and that crowd happened to include plenty of famous fans. We spotted many celebrity couples in the boohoo VIP lounge, including Kate Mara and Max Minghella, who sipped champagne together in a corner booth, as well as Zoe Saldana, who attended with her new husband, Marco Perego, and her sister. Several stars also rolled to the show solo or with friends, including Molly Sims, Victoria Justice, and Kellan Lutz, and a couple of lucky ones had the chance to attend a meet-and-greet with the star after her show. Jessica Alba met Beyoncé backstage with a group of female friends and tagged their photo #queenb #beauty. Beyoncé's dynamic show included more than a half-dozen costume changes and a set list full of her biggest hits, »

Dan Hedaya played Cher's dad in Clueless, Nick's dad on Family Ties, and Monk's dad on Monk. And now Vulture can break the news that the legendary character actor has signed on for another important paternal part: He'll play Danny's dad on an upcoming episode of The Mindy Project. The show telegraphed this development in last week's episode, in which Danny's brother Richie (Max Minghella) popped up to let his sibling know that he'd reconnected with their deadbeat dad (news that caused Danny to do physical harm to an LP of the Miami Vice soundtrack). We don't know much else about Hedaya's appearance, except that (a) his character is named Alan Castellano; (b) he lives in Joshua Tree, California; and (c) Mindy Kaling and Tracy Wigfield wrote the episode, which is scheduled to air in January. That gives you a few weeks to catch up on Hedaya's many other »

After roping in Bella Heathcote and Max Minghella for "A Shot At The Night," The Killers have dipped back into the notable-but-not-quite-famous actor pool and drawn Dianna Agron for "Just Another Girl." And this time around, the video is sort of a greatest hits package (which makes sense since the band's new disc is a greatest hits package featuring two new songs, hence the videos) flashing back to promos of the past, but with Agron taking the role of lead singer Brandon Flowers. But he's also in the video too, so it all blurs together into one clip that's probably worth a click below. [Stereogum] »

The TV biz has for years been declaring “sweeps” periods about as antiquated as wired remote controls, but Fox apparently wasn’t copied on the memo.
The network on Tuesday issued an extensive bulletin touting its “massive” plans for November sweeps, which kicks off this Thursday. We sifted through the release to weed out the old news (X Factor’s return, Almost Human‘s premiere, etc) and play up the stuff that really matters: the spoilers.

Bella Heathcote plays a maid who gets her prince in The Killers’ new video for “Shot At The Night,” the first single from the band’s best-of collection, “Direct Hits," out Nov. 11. Faster than you can say “Blackjack,” she ditches her cleaning cart for an evening out with her dark and mysterious Romeo, played by Max Minghella, and his friends, who are all perfectly fine with the Cinderella-in-the-making crashing their evening. She returns to the hotel before she turns into a pumpkin, but keeps her magic slipper. Ever see the Jennifer Lopez/Ralph Fiennes movie, “Maid In Manhattan?” It’s kind of like »
A bit of a modern-day Romeo and Juliet — all in the span of a four-minute Killers song. The video for "Shot at the Night" (the song was produced by M83's Anthony Gonzalez and is off the Killers' upcoming album Direct Hits) stars Max Minghella (The Social Network) and Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows) as Las Vegas lovers who meet one night and romp through the city lights. Romantic! Just as you always imagined Vegas. »

One of the many films to premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival was director Alexandre Aja’s (The Hills Have Eyes) new film Horns. Based on the novel of the same name by Joe Hill, the pic centers on Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe), the main suspect in the rape and murder of his girlfriend. He awakens one morning to find horns growing from his head, which have the ability to force confessions from strangers. This aids him in his quest to find the real killer, and exact his revenge. Horns also stars Juno Temple, Max Minghella, James Remar, Joe Anderson and Kelli Garner. I caught the world premiere here at Tiff, and am happy to report the film is really well done. Aja has managed to craft a movie that mixes together a few genres--horror, comedy, love story--and results in something unique and cool. Plus, the entire cast is great. »
