Hollywood legend, Mickey Rooney, dead at 93

7 April 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

Hollywood legend Mickey Rooney has died at the age of 93. Born Joseph Yule Jr. in 1920s Brooklyn, Rooney's career began at an early age on stage with his vaudeville acting parents. From there, at age 6, he went on to make his first film Not to Be Trusted (1926), and thus began a decade long career with MGM making silent films. When it comes to child stars, there's Rooney and there's everyone else. While modern child stars are lucky to be in 2 films a year, Rooney starred in upwards of nine movies a year, including the Depression-era Andy Hardy comedies he made with fellow child star Judy Garland. Like a lot of child stars, he struggled to find great parts as an adult and his tabloid life seemed to overshadow his film output. He was married nine times over the course of his life, but no marriage was more notable than the one to Ava Gardner. »

Mickey Rooney Has Died at the Age of 93

7 April 2014 5:54 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

My only real recollection of Mickey Rooney is him as the highly offensive neighbor Mr. Yunioshi in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Today, following the actor's death on Sunday at the age of 93, many are remembering roles of his from the '50s, '60s and even earlier. Rooney was the recipient of two Honorary Oscars in 1939 and again in 1983 and starred in films including The Bridges at Toko-Ri (1954), It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963), The Black Stallion (1979) and National Velvet (1944) and it wasn't as if he hadn't been working recently, though the roles weren't starring roles. He had a small role in 2011's The Muppets, played one of the security guards opposite Bill Cobbs in Night at the Museum and, according to IMDb, he was at work on a couple films up to his passing. There's no immediate information on the cause of death, but it seems as if Rooney died of natural causes. »

Silver Screen legend Mickey Rooney dead at 93

6 April 2014 9:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Los Angeles (AP) — Mickey Rooney, the pint-size, precocious actor and all-around talent whose more than 80-year career spanned silent comedies, Shakespeare, Judy Garland musicals, Andy Hardy stardom, television and the Broadway theater, died Sunday at age 93. Los Angeles Police Commander Andrew Smith said that Rooney was with his family when he died at his North Hollywood home. Smith said police took a death report but indicated that there was nothing suspicious and it was not a police case. He said he had no additional details on the circumstances of his passing. Rooney started his career in his parents' vaudeville act while still a toddler, and broke into movies before age 10. He was still racking up film and TV credits more than 80 years later — a tenure likely unmatched in the history of show business. "I always say, 'Don't retire — inspire,'" he told The Associated Press in March 2008. "There's a lot to be done. »

'Gotham' casts Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma, aka the Riddler

1 April 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Fox's "Gotham" has added a new member of the Rogues' Gallery to its cast: Meet the man playing the future Riddler.

His name is Cory Michael Smith, and he'll play Edward Nygma in the show, which has a series commitment for 2014-15. Smith has signed on as a guest star but could have a recurring or regular role as the series goes on. When viewers meet him, Edward is a forensic scientist with the Gotham Pd. He's very smart but socially maladroit and already has a penchant for speaking in brain-teasers.

Just what turns him into the criminal Batman fans know will presumably be explored in "Gotham's" future.

The part will be Smith's first weekly series role. He appeared in the Broadway production of "Breakfast at Tiffany's" in 2013 and co-starred in the feature film "Camp X-Ray," which debuted at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. He'll also be seen in HBO's »

Future Riddler cast in Fox's 'Gotham'

1 April 2014 1:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Riddle me this: Why is a raven like a writing desk? While you're thinking on that one, riddle me this: Who will play Edward Nygma in Fox's "Gotham" pilot? While The Hatter's riddle has no one answer, the answer to the second one is at your finger-tips if you just follow something that's black and white and read all over, namely this blog.  Wbtv and Fox announced today that Cory Michael Smith has been cast as the Future Riddler in the straight-to-series Commissioner Gordon prequel "Gotham." Edward Nygma is introduced in the Bruno Heller-scripted "Gotham" pilot as a forensics expert who helps Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) and James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) in a murder investigation. He prefers speaking in riddles to giving straight-forward answers, which annoys the two detectives, but they'll probably be much more annoyed when The Riddler begins his reign of terror.

'Pretty Little Liars' Season 4 finale: Is Ezra dead?

18 March 2014 6:30 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The "Pretty Little Liars" Season 4 finale kicks off with Noel Kahn welcoming the four Liars to Alison's apartment. He's there because "he has secrets too," Alison informs them. Then she gets down to business of recounting the night she "died" -- because if they don't figure out who "A" is, she's going to disappear for good.

That fateful night

Alison says "A" had been threatening her since the previous Halloween (the Creepy Baby Halloween special, remember?), so she went away to Hilton Head with Ian to take a break. Melissa showed up there to confront him. While Ian and Melissa were fighting, Alison found the Jenna/Toby sexytime video on Ian's laptop and took it on a flash drive because she thought Jenna was "A" and that the video would get Jenna to leave her alone.Alison goes to see her in the hospital, the visit right after The Jenna Thing, »

Their type? The writers who fell for film stars

14 March 2014 1:50 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From Siegfried Sassoon and Ivor Novello to Gore Vidal and Fred Astaire, a surprisingly large number of writers have paired off with film stars

On Monday, a raunchy letter from Ernest Hemingway to Marlene Dietrich – a surreal fantasy about her, reflecting what he called an "unsynchronised passion" that endured for more than 25 years – is part of an online auction of Dietrich's possessions. Although their relationship remained platonic, many other authors did have movie-star lovers …

F Scott FitzgeraldLois Moran

Fitzgerald's affair in the 1920s with this Zelda lookalike, a silent screen actor who was 17 when he first met her, infuriated his wife – she once threw a jewellery gift from him out of a train window while raging about Moran – but inspired Dick Diver's romance with the actor Rosemary Hoyt in Tender Is the Night.

Miami Film Festival Diary: 'Club Sandwich' charms as the sun shines

11 March 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Miami - Let it never be said that the Miami Film Festival doesn't know its competition. I'm not talking about South By Southwest, running concurrently in Texas at a pace so comparatively frantic that they scarcely seem like equivalent events, but the glorious spring sunshine, currently bathing the city's Art Deco-staggered skyline in honey-clear warmth too delicious to ditch for even the comfiest movie theater. Fully aware of this, Miami is the festival that comes out at night, concentrating its screenings in the evenings and following them up with parties that shoot for Cannes levels of razzle -- all without the shadow of a 7am wake-up call.  If there's a more coolly considerate festival on the circuit, I haven't been to it. Activity intensifies over the fest's opening and closing weekends. Arriving late on Sunday, I missed much of the former, including a glittery kickoff bash attended by Anne Hathaway, »

Emilia Clarke Wows in Sparkly Gowns, Pretty Frocks & More—See the Game of Thrones Star's Best Looks

10 March 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Emilia Clarke is, perhaps, the best British import in the fashion world since Emma Watson.  Emilia drew attention for her role as Holly Golightly in the Broadway production of Breakfast at Tiffany's last year, but you may know her for playing Queen Daenerys in HBO's Game of Thrones. We can't wait for season four to premiere this April, but in the meantime, we've been totally in awe of Emilia's off-screen fashion game. This girl clearly knows how to rule on and off the red carpet. Take the 2014 SAG Awards, for example. She looked absolutely stunning in a Calvin Klein Collection custom beaded rose gold gown. Perfection! And that's not the only time the 26-year-old »

Funny Face review – 'A brittle charm'

27 February 2014 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This 1957 musical makes an unconvincing May-to-December pairing of Hepburn and Astaire, but the gorgeous confectionary has its moments

For me, the gorgeous confectionery of George and Ira Gershwin's songs can't entirely sweeten this 1957 musical directed by Stanley Donen, now on re-release. I confess to finding it, sometimes, a bit mannered and grating. Kay Thompson plays Maggie Prescott, a terrifying New York fashion mag editor gearing up for a Paris trip and looking for the next big thing. Super-famous photographer Dick Avery (Fred Astaire) commandeers a Greenwich Village bookstore for an elaborate shoot, and finds himself captivated by the shy, intellectual young woman in charge: this is Jo, played by Audrey Hepburn. On the spot, he realises that, in his hands, Jo could be the Eliza Doolittle of the fashion world. This brainy beauty will be a sensation. Of course they fall in love. Hepburn is in the boho-gamine mode, »

Très chic! Miranda Kerr rocked a little black dress a la Audrey Hepburn at the H&M fashion show on Feb. 26 during Paris Fashion Week. While the legendary Breakfast at Tiffany's star famously favored Givenchy, Kerr, the newest face of H&M, wore a beautiful brocade dress with a rhinestone embellishment at the neck from the H&M Conscious Exclusive collection, launching April 10. In keeping with Hepburn's simple-yet-chic style, the newly single supermodel, 30, kept her hair and makeup simple. The wide neck and fit-and-flare style of the dress [...] »

Your Anti-Valentine's Day Movies To Watch Over The 3-Day Weekend...

Yes, it's Valentine's Day. But I say bah humbug to V-Day.  I haven't even yet fully recovered from Christmas and New Years to think about celebrating another day wrapped up in crass commercialism & consumerism (insert smiley face here). So, it's in that spirit that I post this entry, which, as the title suggests, is seeking your choices for the best inappropriate, unorthodox Valentine's day movies! Films that are contrary to what is usual, traditional or accepted, with regards to this particular holiday. So, no Love Story, nor Love And Basketball; no Love Jones, or anything else affirming love in the title. No Breakfast At Tiffany's, Sleepless In Seattle, Pretty Woman or »
