Holmes Heading Back To Broadway?

16 December 2010 11:01 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Katie Holmes is contemplating a return to Broadway for a production of William Mastrosimone's psychological drama Extremities.

Show producers want to launch the play in the Big Apple by the 2011-2012 season - and Holmes is at the top of the list to star, according to the New York Times.

A spokeswoman for the actress confirms that she has been approached about the role.

The play centres around a woman who turns the tables on her would-be rapist before contemplating what to do with him with her two roommates.

Extremities premiered Off Broadway in 1982 with Susan Sarandon in the lead role, later taken over by Farrah Fawcett, who also played the part in a 1986 film version. It has never been produced for Broadway.

Holmes made her Broadway debut in 2008 in a revival of All My Sons. »

MovieRetriever's 100 Greatest Movies: #60 A Streetcar Named Desire

1 December 2010 7:47 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Dec 01, 2010

Partisans of America's Broadway stage, the "fabulous invalid" of 1920s, when pessimists feared that talking pictures would lure new generations away from live theatre, were greatly heartened when after the early successes of Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie (1945), and Arthur Miller's All My Sons (1947), the promising newcomers followed up their success with A Streetcar Named Desire (1947) and Death of a Salesman (1949). World War II over, a glorious new theatrical era appeared to be underway. However, the two dazzling Expressionist tragedies proved the climax of the period of psychodrama between the ...Read more at »

Gambon Honoured At London Theatre Awards

29 November 2010 12:16 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Veteran British actor Sir Michael Gambon was honoured for his longstanding stage career at the annual London Evening Standard Theatre Awards on Sunday night.

The Harry Potter star made his debut in the West End in the 1960s and has carried on appearing in live productions while working in films - and he landed the prestigious Lebedev Special Award to mark his career on the stage.

Founder of the Royal Shakespeare Company Sir Peter Hall was also handed a special honour - the Golden Seagull award - for his contribution to world theatre.

Nancy Carroll was honoured with The Natasha Richardson Best Actress award for her role as Joan in Terence Rattigan's After the Dance, and received the trophy from the late star's husband, Liam Neeson.

The Best Actor prize went to Rory Kinnear for two Shakespearean roles, as Hamlet and Angelo in Measure for Measure, while Best Director was awarded to Howard Davies for his work on The White Guard and Arthur Miller's All My Sons.

Stephen Sondheim's Passion, which was staged to mark his 80th birthday earlier this year, fought off competition from Legally Blonde and Les Miserables to win the Ned Sherrin award for Best Musical, and Best Play went to Bruce Norris' racial drama Clybourne Park.

The Editor's Shooting Star award went to Daniel Kaluuya for his performance in boxing drama Sucker Punch.

Deputy Editor of the London Evening Standard Sarah Sands says, "This year's winners illustrate the astonishing range of talent drawn to the stage. London theatre is, by far, the best in the world, and the Evening Standard is proud of its deep associations with it." »

'This is not criticism in a vacuum'

20 October 2010 2:01 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From demolishing Alice in Wonderland to deciphering Macbeth, our young readers bowled over the judges with their wit

Fresh bands, young directors, hot new actors and artists straight out of college are the lifeblood of the arts. And, to ensure that criticism doesn't get stale, it's essential that their generation is represented in our reviewers. The Guardian's annual young critics competition is designed to ensure that arts criticism can reflect the voices of a younger arts audience. That said, youth alone is not enough. These days, it's easier than ever to find a platform on which to voice your opinions – by blogging, tweeting, or posting on comment threads – but with all that competition, it's more essential than ever that you have something worthwhile to say.

The entries confirmed that there are 10-18-year-olds out there with perceptive, funny things to convey about subjects ranging from the Selfridges building in Birmingham to tattooed La rockers Buckcherry. »

Mike O'Malley Might Not Have an Emmy (Yet), But He Has Legions of Gay Fans

26 August 2010 7:46 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Given that is a site devoted to covering gay and bisexual men in popular culture, one might assume that Neil Patrick Harris' first Emmy win for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his role on Glee would have been met with nothing but unanimous acclaim by our readers. In point of fact, however, many readers think they Emmy should have gone to another Glee actor: Mike O'Malley.

Make no mistake; almost all of those who think O'Malley should have one, agree Harris was long overdue for an Emmy win. But if one performance was going to be singled out on Glee for this award, these readers think it should go to the man who has so memorably played Kurt Hummel's dad. Such is the power of O'Malley's performance as the blue collar Burt Hummel, a widowed dad trying to do his best by a gay son he clearly doesn't understand, »

Tom Cruise is hoping to follow his wife Katie Holmes into theatre - he wants to land a role in London's West End.

The Hollywood actor was immensely proud when his partner starred in a Broadway production of Arthur Miller's All My Sons in 2008, and he admits Holmes' stage debut has made him consider treading the boards himself.

And Cruise is convinced London would be the ideal location to launch his theatre career.

He tells Britain's Evening Standard, "I'd really like to do the stage at some point." »

Emily Mortimer: 'Secrets are a part of all of our lives'

8 July 2010 2:14 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Her new film is about a man with a secret son. So how did Emily Mortimer deal with acting in such familiar, familial territory?

Acting, according to Emily Mortimer, is a succession of platonic romances. A "weird flirtation thing" when Andy Garcia played a "sex-obsessed Italian detective" and she was a "nervous little French secretary" in The Pink Panther 2, led to her latest part in City Island. Here, Mortimer plays an aspiring actor who develops an intense friendship with a prison guard and repressed actor who is played, inevitably, by Garcia. "It's a very typical relationship that actors experience all the time," she says, words falling from her mouth in a skittish tumble. "You're put together in very intense circumstances with total strangers, very often from entirely different walks of life, apart from the fact you are both fucked-up actors. It hovers somewhere between romance and friendship. It's a platonic romance. »

Q&A: John Lithgow

22 June 2010 3:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Some actors might take umbrage if the title of their career retrospective was "Over the Top." Not John Lithgow. The notoriously affable actor says of his sometimes oversized acting, "Well, it's kind of my trademark. There's no getting around it."

Lithgow will be speaking at the Los Angeles Film Festival in an event titled "Over the Top: An Evening With John Lithgow" on June 22, at 8 p.m. at the Regal 12 Cinema in downtown L.A. The conversation, moderated by festival artistic director David Ansen, will be accompanied by two of Lithgow's biggest and most memorable performances: madcap Dr. Emilio Lizardo in the 1984 sci-fi romp "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai" and the terrified plane passenger in the segment "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" from the 1983 anthology film "Twilight Zone: The Movie."

Polish Actress Czyzewska Dies

18 June 2010 12:18 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Polish film and TV star Elzbieta Czyzewska has lost her battle with esophageal cancer. She was 72.

Czyzewska died at a Manhattan, New York hospital on Thursday.

She rose to fame as a national sex symbol in Poland after starring in 1961 film Erotica and became the most popular actress in the country during the 1960s.

She starred in a critically acclaimed Polish production of Arthur Miller's All My Sons, but her career took a turn after her marriage to the American journalist David Halberstam made her an outcast in her home country, when he was accused of slander against the government.

The couple was expelled from Poland and fled to the U.S., where Czyzewska established herself as a stage actress, including a starring role in a 1974 production of The Possessed, alongside a then-unknown Meryl Streep and Christopher Durang.

On film, her credits included smaller roles in Putney Swope, Running on Empty, Cadillac Man and A Kiss Before Dying. She also made appearances on TV in shows like Sex and the City, Third Watch, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Damages.

In May 2005, she was honoured with the Cultural Award of Merit by the Consul General of the New York Polish Consulate - the highest award for a Polish American to receive.

Her marriage to author Halberstam ended in divorce in 1977. »

Dianne Wiest Lives In The Forest and Returns to the Screen

13 May 2010 7:45 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

From time to time I like to share my live theater adventures. I hope that readers who don't get to much of it will notice that I try to keep it as cinematically related as possible. That said... support your local theater! You might not even know it's there but it is (and I'm not talking about Broadway tours). I finally had the chance to see one of my all time favorite film actresses on stage last night so I grabbed at it greedily.

Dianne Wiest as Raisa Pavlovna in The Forest

Two-time Oscar winner Dianne Wiest looks to finally be getting the late career revival that her devoted fans have always dreamt of. She's recently won an Emmy (In Treatment), filmed a key role in a possible Oscar contender (Rabbit Hole) and has also been making fairly frequent trips to the stage (recent credits include The Seagull and All My Sons)

Brits flock to the West End for entertainment

15 April 2010 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

London – If all the world's a stage, then it never has been more true than in the British capital right now. The nation's economy is in dire straits, but that hasn't stopped theatergoers from flocking to the West End, where attendance last year topped 14 million and boxoffice revenue hit a record £500 million ($775 million).

"It's been an extraordinary year of hits, with very few misses," says producer Nica Burns, chair of the Society of London Theatre, which represents all 52 of the city's playhouses. "We've just had an outstanding time."

Hits have included classics from Beckett ("Waiting for Godot") and Chekhov ("Ivanov") to Shakespeare ("Hamlet") and Tennessee Williams ("A Streetcar Named Desire"); new plays dealing with a modern English family ("Jerusalem"), U.S. capitalism ("Enron") and World War I ("War Horse"); such long-running musicals as "Les Miserables," "The Phantom of the Opera" and "Mamma Mia!"; and new tuners including "Sister Act" and "Priscilla: Queen of the Desert. »

Great Scott

7 April 2010 11:04 AM, PDT | | See recent Backstage news »

From the moment he first saw "Raiders of the Lost Ark," Adam Scott knew he wanted to be an actor. "I watched Harrison Ford onscreen and said, 'That looks like fun. Not only is he running from boulders; he's so funny," the now-37-year-old Scott recalls. "Basically, all I still want to do is run from boulders." Until his career as an action hero takes off, Scott will have to be satisfied with his status as the next big thing. After holding his own as Will Ferrell's Dane Cook–loving sibling in "Step Brothers," Scott stole scenes as a sleazy agent on "Eastbound and Down" and romanced Amy Adams in "Leap Year." He recently joined the cast of the NBC comedy "Parks and Recreation" as a potential love interest for Amy Poehler and will be seen "riding a Jet Ski and carrying a shotgun on my back" (but no boulders) in August's "Piranha 3-D. »

John Forsythe obituary

4 April 2010 10:20 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

American TV actor famous for his role as Dynasty's Blake Carrington and being the voice of Charlie in Charlie's Angels

If the name of the American actor John Forsythe, who has died aged 92, is not immediately recognisable, then that of his character Blake Carrington – the tanned and handsome silver-haired billionaire oil magnate in the long-running television series Dynasty – certainly is. The show, known for its opulent atmosphere, lavish sets and costumes, and preoccupation with the problems of the wealthy, ran alongside Ronald Reagan's years as Us president, 1981-89. It made Forsythe internationally famous and rich. During the second year of the run, Forsythe remarked: "I can't afford to bulge. Being a 64-year-old sex symbol is a hell of a weight to carry."

With his earnest demeanour, Forsythe, as the patriarch plagued by a scheming ex-wife (Joan Collins), a bisexual son, and other tribulations ranging from murder and greed to lust and incest, »
