Screenwriter Walter Bernstein at 95: Still Front and Center

26 August 2014 2:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ask Walter Bernstein what makes for a good screenplay, and he’ll answer you with a (possibly apocryphal) story about Henry David Thoreau. “He was living out at Walden Pond and a friend came to tell him that Samuel Morse had just made the first successful wireless telegraph transmission from Boston to Portland, or something like that,” Bernstein says with the practiced storyteller’s delight in a well-told tale. “And Thoreau asked, ‘But what did it say?’ That’s always stuck with me. With all the technology and everything else, what’s it about?”

“What’s it about?” is a question Bernstein, who turned 95 this month, has been asking himself in one form or another for most of his 65-year career, which has stretched from the early days of live television to the modern era of binge watching, and from the lionized “golden age” of the studio system to the low-budget indie renaissance. »

Noel Fisher Talks Mikey in 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' | Exclusive

15 August 2014 5:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles heads into its second weekend a champion. It is already considered a box office hit, a sequel was announced last Sunday, and it's all smooth sailing from here. The fans have spoken, and they love the ensemble behind these four brothers from the sewer. As we prepare for Mikey, Raph, Donnie and Leo to dominate the next three days once again, we caught up with scene stealer Noel Fisher, who delivers some of the funniest lines in the movie.

Look deep into Michelangelo's eyes, and you will definitely see Noel Fisher hiding in there. The resemblance is actually uncanny. And the two share a similar sense of humor. As easy to talk to and free spirited as you'd imagine holding a conversation with Mikey might be like, Noel Fisher shared his experiences in contributing to this 30-year-old franchise phenomenon, which shows no signs of slowing down. »
