See photos: 9 of Elaine Stritch's Most Memorable Roles (Photos) Instead, de Wilde lives on in two performances this month; one is on-screen in “Fury” with Logan Lerman‘s too-good soldier who can't kill, and the other is on stage in the musical version of “The Fortress of »

Hollywood's Real Life Olivia Pope on Why Teresa Giudice Is More Than Fired (Guest Blog)

2 hours ago

I made the decision to terminate the consulting relationship between Teresa Giudice and myself. This was a decision that was weeks coming and not an easy one. The issue made more complex by the many hats that I wear in most cases as a legal crisis manager and coach — I am after all the ultimate Insider. A real-life fixer, who lives, breathes and serves as an example for my clients. In this case, as in many, I also handled all media appearances and oversaw All contracts with the aid of the proper lawyers. I build teams. That means for »

‘John Wick’ Review: Keanu Reeves Thriller Burns with Brisk, Bloody, Bruising Action

3 hours ago

Taking a paper-thin premise and delivering it with cold-rolled steel execution, “John Wick” isn't perfect, but that's very much part of its pleasures. Keanu Reeves is the title character, a retired assassin inspired to resume his career after, yes, armed thugs kill his dog, thereby unleashing hell in the form of a fearsomely competent man with nothing to lose. Directed by stunt veteran (and Reeves collaborator) Chad Stahelski, “John Wick” hearkens back to a past and perhaps forgotten style of American action filmmaking. The shots are long, with the actors clearly doing as much of the fighting as they can. »

Edward Snowden Doc Director on Taking ‘Staggering’ Risks, Angering Powerful People

4 hours ago

If the U.S. government doesn't like Laura Poitras’ new documentary about Edward Snowden, “CitizenFour,” it only has itself to blame. Poitras, after all, came to the government's attention after she made the Oscar-nominated 2006 documentary “My Country, My Country,” about the cost of the Iraq war on U.S. troops and on Iraqis. Her activities making that film put her on a watch list, which for years caused her to be detained for hours whenever she tried to enter the country. To protect her sources from the government confiscating her computer equipment, she learned to use sophisticated encryption technology. See »

CAA Sale to Tpg Ups the Talent Agency Arms Race – With Wall Street Providing the Bullets

4 hours ago

The sale to private equity firm Tpg of a majority stake in CAA has sent a ripple through the Hollywood agency world, as the competition to grow and diversify intensifies in what used to be a purely star-driven business.
