Drifter Connected to Murders of Six, Including His Daughter
New Hampshire authorities believe a drifter who died in 2010 while serving a life sentence for his wife’s murder possibly killed six other people including his own daughter, People confirms.

New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph Foster said at a Thursday press conference that among the victims of a man known as Robert Evans — who went by several other aliases — was his ex-girlfriend Denise Beaudin, a New Hampshire mother who has been missing since 1981 whose remains have never been recovered.

Foster said it is possible Beaudin could be alive, but based on what detectives have learned about Evans, Foster believes it

Lawsuits can't keep 'Jersey Shore's' Snooki and The Situation from global domination

  • Hitfix
Toms River, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey judge has again denied a request to block the release of episodes of the MTV reality series "Jersey Shore." State Superior Court Judge Joseph Foster rejected the request of three people who say their reputations will be damaged because they're shown fighting with cast members. An attorney for the three complained after a published report said MTV planned a global release of the series, which focuses on the escapades of eight 20-something Italian-Americans at a shore house. Last month the judge denied a man's request to block the DVD release of the show's...

Doubt has arrived on DVD from Miramax Home Video with a Director's Commentary from John Patrick Shanley, plus four featurettes: "Scoring Doubt," "The Cast of Doubt," "The Sisters of Charity," and "Doubt: From Stage to Screen." Here is Terry Keefe's in-depth interview with writer-director John Patrick Shanley which originally appeared in the December 2008 issue of Venice Magazine.

A Conversation with John Patrick Shanley on the making of Doubt, the origins of Moonstruck, and the dire fate of his first novel.

By Terry Keefe

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 21 years since John Patrick Shanley’s screenplay for Moonstruck made a whole generation of moviegoers want to move to Little Italy, marry Cher or Nicolas Cage, Danny Aiello even, and look for the mythical Cosmo’s Moon. The young Shanley had already been having a good career run at that point, with a number of successful Off-Broadway plays,

Viola Davis: Making Mrs. Miller in Doubt

By Terry Keefe

[Pictured above is actress Viola Davis in her role as Mrs. Miller in Doubt.]

One scene can make a star out of a rising actor, although it’s a rare occurrence. Particularly when that scene is opposite the likes of Meryl Streep, who is certainly difficult to outshine. But Viola Davis is going to attract a great deal of notice for her relatively brief appearance in Doubt, to the point where she is already being mentioned as a likely candidate for the Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination. Davis, who plays the character of Mrs. Miller, is

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Doubt’ Spotlights Spectacular Performances in HD

Blu-Ray Rating: 4.0/5.0 Chicago – The history of films to score four acting Oscar nominations would make for a very short list. And yet most critics knew the rare set of nods was inevitable when they saw the quartet of talent on display in John Patrick Shanley’s “Doubt”. Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, and Viola Davis shine in “Doubt,” now available on Blu-Ray.

Doubt” is not a perfect film. Some of the overt symbolism (the burned-out bulb, the changing winds) is a little too on-the-nose and the piece doesn’t quite break free from its theatrical roots to feel like much more than a filmed play, but what a play. This is an acting powerhouse, a dialogue-driven examination of faith that includes some of the best performances of 2008.

Doubt was released on Blu-Ray on April 7th, 2009.

Casting Director: Ellen Chenoweth Writer-Director: John Patrick Shanley Starring: Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, Viola Davis The Pitch: In a Catholic school in 1964, a nun (Streep) accuses a priest (Hoffman) of an improper relationship with one of the male students.When a film has already been a Pulitzer Prize-winning hit play on and off Broadway, with its original cast copping nearly every award in sight, a casting director is faced with a particular challenge: How do you find actors for the movie version who will bring their own incandescence to roles that have already been filled to acclaim? Casting director Ellen Chenoweth encountered this dilemma when she met with playwright John Patrick Shanley and producer Scott Rudin about casting the cinematic edition of Shanley's theatrical smash Doubt. Oscar winners Philip Seymour Hoffman and Meryl Streep were already attached in the lead roles of a priest accused of conducting

"Doubt" review - Meryl Streep is the perfect villain.

Doubtby Steve Ramos, Writer Meryl Streep is the perfect villain in suspenseful ‘Doubt’ If esteemed film critic Pauline Kael were still alive, watching and reviewing movies, I imagine she would pounce all over Meryl Streep for her performance in “Doubt” as villainous Sister Aloysius, a Bronx school principal and Catholic nun in 1964, convinced that a young priest, Father Flynn (Philip Seymour Hoffman), molested a male student. Kael frequently accused Streep of playacting, of emphasizing foreign accents and changes in her physical appearance instead of more natural performances. With “Doubt,” the most intimate of the year- end, prestige releases, a period film drama that’s nearly perfect, Kael would have targeted Streep’s Irish lilt, wire-framed spectacles and black bonnet and cloak. Kael would have criticized Streep for once again playing dress up but in the case of writer/director John Patrick Shanley’s “Doubt,” an adaptation of his acclaimed stage play,
