11 Actors in Wes Anderson’s Troupe

26 December 2014 8:00 AM, PST

Is there anything more fantastical than a Wes Anderson creation? The three-time Oscar-nominated writer-director has been wowing audiences since 1996, and has given us eight feature films to date. Aside from his landscapes of muted colors (pink and purple pastels in the case of “The Grand Budapest Hotel”), there’s always one thing indicative of an Anderson film: the actors. Having expertly assembled a motley crew of talent, Anderson’s productions are made even more enjoyable (and often hilarious) by those who bring them to life. Just try to watch the Ralph Fiennes-starring “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and not squeal with excitement as familiar faces pop up left and right! Click Here To View The Slideshow. Want more?

10 Supporting Players Who Dedicated Years to ‘Boyhood’

23 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST

For casting director Beth Sepko, Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” was a project unlike any other she’d done in the past.
