Interview: Actor Paul Dooley of ‘Breaking Away,’ ‘Sixteen Candles’

21 July 2016 10:25 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – If there ever was a quintessential “Dad” in movies of the last generation, it would have to be Paul Dooley. The comedian and character actor is best known for portraying the patriarch in “Breaking Away” (1979) and “Sixteen Candles” (1984), but was also in director’s Robert Altman’s ‘ensemble’ and has had a stellar career.

The former “Paul Brown” was born in West Virginia, and studied acting at West Virginia University, before heading to New York City and a new career as Paul Dooley. He did stage work, stand-up comedy and the New York City version of The Second City (story below), before getting his big break in the original stage version of “The Odd Couple” in 1965, directed by the legendary Mike Nichols. While working the stage, he appeared in a number of commercials, eventually moving to Los Angeles to “be where the action is.”

Excited to see Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones in the new “Ghostbusters”? The buzzy blockbuster—out in theaters today!—is one of several new installments of comedy classics that fans have been clamoring for, and we can’t wait to see what new remakes continue to hit the big screen. Read: “How to Recreate the Comedic Brilliance of ‘Ghostbusters’ ” With a “First Wives Club” TV show, a “Mary Poppins” Disney sequel starring Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda, and an all-female “Ocean’s Eleven” on the way, here are 10 more comedy favorites begging for a reboot. What films would you add to the list below? “TootsieSydney Pollack’s 1982 instant-classic film managed quite a feat; it combined laugh-out-loud comedy, delivered by a brilliant Dustin Hoffman, with deceptively shrewd social commentary about sexism. For that reason this cross-dressing comedy about a difficult Hollywood actor stepping into a woman’s shoes is worth revisiting. »

Dick Van Dyke's Impromptu Mary Poppins Performance Is Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

1 July 2016 11:15 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Calling all Disney fans: Dick Van Dyke's latest appearance will flood your heart with emotions. While visiting Walt Disney's birthplace in Chicago recently, the actor, who is known for his role as Bert in Mary Poppins, gave an impromptu performance of the film's iconic number "Let's Go Fly a Kite," and it was even more magical than you could have imagined. Not only did he sing the tune with his wife, Arlene, and his a cappella singing group, The Vantastix, but the crowd even joined in for the chorus. Of course, this isn't the first time he has spread cheer. Last December, he had a jolly holiday when he celebrated his 90th birthday with a Mary Poppins flash mob. Try to suppress your tears as you watch his sweet video above. »

Book Review – The Fireman by Joe Hill

24 June 2016 6:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Michelle Herbert reviews The Fireman by Joe Hill…

This is Joe Hill’s take on an end of the world scenario, in this case, the apocalypse doesn’t come with a bang, rather the whole world will burn. Slowly a virus commonly known as Dragonscale starts infecting people first they get the scale on their bodies and then later the infected spontaneously combust. At the start of the novel, there is a lot of conjecture as to what is causing Dragonscale and how it is being passed from one host to another, at this stage there are no real facts people know that once you start showing signs of Dragonscale it is only a matter of time before you die.

‘Sicario’ sequel will stand up on its own – and more movies may follow

16 June 2016 2:59 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director Stefano Sollima is in town to promote his new crime movie Suburra, which comes out in UK cinemas on June 24th, but everyone really wants to know more about his net project, the sequel to Sicario, Soldado.

Speaking with The Independent, the Italian filmmaker spoke of the planned sequel, which sounds like it’ll be a film that will work on its own.

“It’s not a real sequel,” he said to the online newspaper. “It’s absolutely a standalone movie – a completely different story with just two of the characters that you met in Sicario.”

He refers to Benicio del Toro‘s hitman Alejandro Gillick and CIA officer Matt Graves (Josh Brolin).

“The reason that I love [Soldado] is because it’s not exactly a sequel; it’s something you can catch and enjoy even if you haven’t watched the first one.”  

“The antagonists are now absolutely the main characters.”

Shooting on the film will start later in the year. Emily Blunt, who led the first movie, will not return for the sequel as she’s off to headline the Mary Poppins sequel, Mary Poppins Returns over at Disney.

Let’s not rule out a return in the future though, as Sollima stated that more movies in the Sicario series could follow.

“The idea is to make three anthology movies with some of the core actors and [set] in the same world.”

More as we get it.

‘Sicario’ Sequel ‘Soldado’ Will Be Part of Standalone Trilogy

15 June 2016 9:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Star Wars” isn’t the only franchise to inspire a series of standalone films. Stefano Sollima, who’s directing the “Sicario” sequel “Soldado,” revealed to The Independent that “the idea is to make three anthology movies with some of the core actors and [set] in the same world.” “Soldado,” the first of these, will apparently have little else in common with Denis Villeneuve’s drug-war drama from last year.

“It’s not a real sequel,” added Sollima. “It’s absolutely a standalone movie — a completely different story with just two of the characters that you met in ‘Sicario.’ The reason that I love [‘Soldado’] is because it’s not exactly a sequel; it’s something you can catch and enjoy even if you haven’t watched the first one.” Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin and screenwriter Taylor Sheridan are all set to return for the semi-sequel; original star Emily Blunt is not.

She was recently cast in the “Mary Poppins” reboot, while Villeneuve is at work on the long-awaited “Blade Runner” sequel starring Ryan Gosling. Sollima promises that “Soldado” will be “much more cinematic” than its predecessor — a tall order, given Roger Deakins’ typically arresting cinematography, but an exciting one if he can deliver the goods.

Critic's Notebook: The True Inspiration for Led Zeppelin’s 'Stairway To Heaven'? Who Cares?

14 June 2016 8:51 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

If the thought of anyone in Led Zeppelin listening to — and being inspired by — Mary Poppins doesn't utterly delight you, then the life has left your body. I bring this up because the lawsuit that apparently won't end — whether Led Zeppelin's classic "Stairway to Heaven" ripped off a song called "Taurus" from the band Spirit — is back in court, with Robert Plant and Jimmy Page appearing before a Los Angeles judge. Led Zeppelin’s defense, at least in part, has been that that the guitar passage in question is so common that Disney might as well accuse

Lin-Manuel Miranda: Emily Blunt Is Perfect For the Mary Poppins Sequel, But Will Julie Andrews Be In It?

13 June 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Unless you've got some big money to spare, the chances of getting tickets to Hamilton while Lin-Manuel Miranda still in the show are pretty low. Like really low. That said, we will be seeing the Tony winner on the big screen in 2018 in the Mary Poppins sequel opposite Emily Blunt in the title role. "That starts next year," Miranda told me on the Tonys red carpet. "I've heard the songs and they're amazing!" Miranda, who is also developing his Tony-winning musical In the Heights for a film adaptation, is set to play a new character in Mary Poppins, street lamplighter named Jack.

‘Jagged Little Pill’ is now the age Alanis Morissette was when it was released

13 June 2016 11:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

21 years ago today, Jagged Little Pill hit record stores, soon to be a smash hit and eventually one of the best-selling albums of all time. The album is now the age that Alanis Morissette was when it was released — it came out a couple weeks after her 21st birthday. It was the third album from the Canadian singer but a major deviation from her first two studio albums, records that had a generic teen dance-pop sound before Morissette found the voice that would make her a breakout star. Alt-rock Jagged Little Pill captured the rollercoaster that is life as you’re transitioning from your teenage years into your 20s. Morissette was 19 when she wrote it. As evidenced by the album’s massive sales, there were plenty of people who identified with her lyrics and the raw emotion in the music, from “You Oughta Know,” an anthem for any woman who has been betrayed by someone they thought they loved, to the spiritual yearning in opening track “All I Really Want” to “You Learn,” one of the least angsty songs on the album, an ode to making mistakes and learning from them. Jagged Little Pill was nominated for nine Grammy Awards. Morissette’s win for Album of the Year in 1996 made her the youngest artist to receive the honor. She held that record for 14 years, until Taylor Swift won the award in 2010. Other notable June 13 happenings in pop culture history: • 1967: The Temptations’ single “You’re My Everything” was released. It got to the #3 spot on the U.S. R&B chart and #6 on the U.S. Pop chart. • 1969: The Rolling Stones introduced new guitarist Mick Taylor at a press conference in London’s Hyde Park. He made his live debut with the Stones that July at a free concert in Hyde Park. • 1970: The Beatles’ album Let It Be hit the top spot on the U.S. album chart. It held the #1 spot for four weeks. Also on this day, The Beatles’ “Long and Winding Road” hit #1 on the singles chart. • 1977: Matthew Garber, who had played Michael Banks in Mary Poppins, died at age 21. • 1988: Paula Abdul released her debut album, Forever Your Girl. • 1989: Jerry Lee Lewis was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. • 1989: The premiere screening of License to Kill is held in London. The James Bond film — Timothy Dalton’s second and final turn as 007 — opened in the U.S. the following month. • 2003: English group Arctic Monkeys played their first gig at The Grapes, a pub in Sheffield, England. • 2009: The final episode of Pushing Daisies finally aired, after the series’ cancelation back in November. »

Will "Loving" Help June 12th Become a Holiday?

12 June 2016 6:31 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

On this day in history as it relates to the movies...

1916 Disaster epic super producer Irwin Allen is born. (More on him this afternoon)

1919 Stage legend Uta Hagen is born. Though she only ever makes three movies, she originates Tony winning roles on stage that later win Oscars for movie stars (The Country Girl and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?). Also the co-author of "Respect for Acting" and a reknowned acting teacher with 70s legends Pacino & De Niro as students

1928 Oscar winning composer Richard M Sherman (of Sherman Brothers fame) is born. Jason Schwartzman plays him in Saving Mr Banks (2013) about the making of Mary Poppins (1964)

1942 Anne Frank receives a diary for her 13th birthday. She does not live much longer during the horrific events of The Holocaust but The Diary of Anne Frank becomes a key text of the 20th century. The George Stevens film adaptation (of the Pulitzer winning play of the same name by the screenwriters) released in 1959 receives 8 nominations including Best Picture and takes home three Oscars

1946 Oscar-nominated costume designer Maurizio Millenotti is born in Italy. Credits include: Otello, Hamlet (1990 version), Malèna, The Passion of the Christ and Federico Fellini's And the Ship Sails On.

1962 Three bank robbers escape from Alcatraz. The story becomes the Clint Eastwood picture Escape From Alcatraz (1979)

← 1967 The Supreme Court strikes down anti-miscenegation laws banning interracial marriage in the Loving v Virginia case. This year's Oscar hopeful Loving (2016), starring Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton tells the Loving story. There's also a movement to make June 12th, "Loving Day," an official Us holiday for celebrating multiracial families. Sadly the movie isn't opening today for this anniversary so we'll have to wait months to see it. Perhaps the 50th anniversary next year, after the story is more widely known with the movie, will help add momentum. 

1985 Dave Franco is born 

1992 Housesitter with Steve Martin, Goldie Hawn and Dana Delany hits theaters 

2010 Slow burning hit "Bulletproof" peaks on the Us charts nearly a year after its release. Two years later Beca deploys it to fuck up Aubrey's stale act in Pitch Perfect (2012)

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Newest Post-‘Hamilton’ Project

10 June 2016 9:43 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Lin-Manuel Miranda will be taking his last bow in his Broadway hit “Hamilton” come summertime. But the prolific writer-actor will not be sitting on his laurels. In addition to his previously announced leap into “Mary Poppins” with Emily Blunt, Miranda will also be working on a new improv music show for NBCUniversal’s streaming platform Seeso entitled “Freestyle Love Supreme.” The show, which will stream exclusively on the outlet created for “comedy super fans” June 23, incorporates cues from the audience for a lyrically-driven performance and a different taste of the skills that birthed “Hamilton.” Read: The Streaming Service Where Ucb, Monty Python, and SNL Meet Below, the Pulitzer-, Tony-, and Grammy-winning artist discusses the origins of his “Mic Check” segment with fellow performer Anthony Veneziale. “I think it started out of necessity,” says Miranda. “It was a good way for us to actually check the sound of our microphones while »

Schuyler Sister, Disney Princess?

7 June 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

With Hamilton fever not relenting any time soon, we're starting to get excited for Lin-Manuel Miranda's next projects, including the resucitated In the Heights movie adaptation and Mary Poppins sequel with Emily Blunt. But we won't have to wait years for his next musical feat: he's partnered with Disney for the music on November's animated Moana.

But he's taking some Hamilton family with him: castmate and Schuyler Sister Phillipa Soo has joined the vocal cast which also includes Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and newcomer Auli'i Cravalho.

The casting doesn't come with details on her character beyond "villager", with much of the South Pacific-set animated film still under wraps, but surely you're thinking what I'm thinking. Could Soo be following the likes of Idina Menzel and Jodi Benson from Broadway leading lady to Disney princess? Besides, aren't Schuyler Sisters already the girl power heroes we always hope new Disney princesses will be? »
