Albanese, who performed on stage, in films and on television, was a longshoreman and then a successful boxer before becoming an actor.

One of the best webseries around (Lgbt or otherwise) is returning for a second season. "Eastsiders" -- the dark comedy from Kit Williamson -- is back for round two exclusively on Vimeo on Demand starting September 15th, and we have both the trailer and the first two episodes of season one here in anticipation. “I was inspired by the enormous success Vimeo has had with shows like High Maintenance,” explained Kit Williamson of his decision to move the series to the streaming network. He believes the rise of streaming services like Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and Vimeo has blurred the line between TV and web, and credits the crowdfunding website Kickstarter with making independent television shows like his possible. Williamson also stars in the series alongside Van Hansis ("As The World Turns") as Cal and Thom, a gay couple trying to stay together in the aftermath of infidelity. The second season »
Amanda Seyfried says she was ''pigeonholed as the dumb blonde'' after her role in 'Mean Girls'. The 29-year-old actress, who has played a variety of characters, from a loved-up singing star in the Abba musical 'Mamma Mia', to a 1970s porn actress Linda Lovelace, felt that she wasn't taken seriously when she first took to acting. She said: ''I was totally pigeonholed as the dumb blonde after 'Mean Girls'. But it's different now. And 'Mean Girls' was amazing for me, it gave me so much. I was 18, I had no clue what to do with my life; it was either mean girls or college, so it gave me direction.'' The star, who started acting at the early age of 15 on 'As the World Turns', also revealed that she finds it too hard to watch herself on screen. She said: ''I'm too critical; it's a problem with me. »

Irrational Man is the 45th feature that Woody Allen has directed, but what’s perhaps more shocking is that it’s his first film with actress Parker Posey. Triumphantly wearing the crown of “Queen of the Indies” during her prolific 1990s, it’s a shock and wonder Posey hasn’t already worked with Allen, who could easily be labeled the Godfather of the genre.
While Irrational Man may be the start of a fruitful collaboration between the two, Posey has a long history of working with other notable American independent filmmakers. Whether as the star or as a cameo she has the ability to bring a jolt of energy that feels strong enough alone to power a complete film. When utilizing Posey, it’s the director who finds their own way to harness her energy and shape it into the memorable moments that often bear multiple viewings. Looking back on »
