Tim Key, Mark Watson and Alex Horne from TV's silliest quiz face the sheer randomness of Wikipedia

If a snail and a pigeon were to meet in Nottingham and race around the world in opposite directions, where would they meet?* It's not a hugely important question, but it is one that a member of the great British public deemed puzzling enough to spend 98p on texting an SMS answer service to find out.

We Need Answers has taken the funniest, dumbest and smartest questions posed by texting Britons and turned them into Britain's silliest new quiz show – back for a full series on BBC4 this week, after starting as an after-hours free-for-all at the Edinburgh fringe. Hosted by comedians Tim Key, Mark Watson and Alex Horne, the show takes minor celebrities and asks them questions that people have been wondering about, like, "How many grapes can most people stuff into their mouths? »

'Welcome To Japan, Mr. Cruise": Tom Was Japanese In Former Life Says Japan's New First Lady

3 September 2009 8:19 AM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Maybe Tom Cruise's next movie should be a remake of the 1967 James Bond classic You Only Live Twice. According to Japan's new first lady, Miyuki Hatoyama, she knew Cruise in another life: when he was Japanese! Furthermore, Ms. Hatoyama claims she, too, has lived prior lives and knew Cruise in his Asian period. "I believe he'd get it if I said to him, 'Long time no see', when we meet," she says in her book (appropriately titled Very Strange Things I've Encountered.) Before you put too much stock in her claim, keep in mind that she also relates in the book about being abducted by aliens and taken on a trip to Venus. Hey, if her gig in Japan doesn't work out, she definitely has a place in American politics. For more click here »

The Blu-Ray Review: Goldfinger (1964)

2 September 2009 5:06 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Colin Jacobson reviews the James Bond classic in HD.

For my money, Bond never got any better than Goldfinger. The series got bigger and flashier, but no film ever portrayed the fun, action, and danger, and the high-tech nuttiness of the world of James Bond any more perfectly than this 1964 classic. This was the film that convinced me that Sean Connery was unquestionably the best Bond ever. It may sound like heresy, but for much of my life, I thought Roger Moore defined the character. It's a matter of timing. By the time I became interested in the series in 1979 with Moonraker, Connery had been without his license to kill for eight years and Moore was firmly ensconced in the role. Considering that these were the days before common and affordable VCRs, that meant that for all intents, Moore was Bond to my generation. We had very little experience with anyone else. »

Michael Sheen as Blofeld for Bond 23...?

17 June 2009 12:10 PM, PDT | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

We recently reported that Peter Morgan, who penned The Queen and Frost/Nixon, will be co-scripting the new James Bond movie with Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, and that Afghanistan might factor into the plot-line somehow.

Now comes word from The Guardian that Michael Sheen, who has collaborated in the past with Morgan on the aforementioned movies, is in negotiations to play Ernst Stavro Blofeld in Bond 23.

Blofeld back for Bond 23...? That's what the UK paper is reporting.

"Michael is hot property right now and it is felt that he's the right man to bring Blofeld back to life," an unnamed source revealed. "Michael was a Bond fan in his youth, so this would be a dream role for him."

Blofeld is the head of Spectre and has appeared in six previous James Bond installments: From Russia with Love (1963), Thunderball (1965), You Only Live Twice (1967), On Her Majesty's Secret Service »

Michael Sheen ‘In Talks’ For ‘Bond’ Villain Blofeld

16 June 2009 12:00 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

British actor Michael Sheen, who will be seen by millions this fall in “New Moon,” is reportedly in talks to join the James Bond franchise for yet another iconic role. According to an anonymous source, Sheen is up for the villainous part of Blofeld in the 23rd installment of the 007 series, which is currently being co-scripted by two-time Oscar-nominated writer Peter Morgan.

Morgan and Sheen have collaborated many times before, most memorably for “Frost/Nixon” and “The Queen,” in which he portrayed former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair. It’s possible that this link between writer and actor has led to speculative rumors of Sheen’s interest and involvement in the Bond film, but we’re hoping that it’s true. Apparently Sheen has been a fan of the 007 series since his youth, so he is likely crossing his fingers, as well.

Though Sheen is a well-respected actor, he is no stranger to mainstream franchises. »

Rumor Alert: Is Michael Sheen Going to Star as Bond Big Bad Ernst Stavro Blofeld?

16 June 2009 11:06 AM, PDT | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

We all have heard of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the evil genius and James Bond's ultimate nemesis. Heck, even Mike Myers imitated him as Dr. Evil in the "Austin Powers" films.

Blofeld is the head of the global criminal organization Spectre with dreams of, you guessed it, World Domination!

With the last Bond film, "Quantum of Solace" dealing with Spectre, it's just a logical next step to reboot the Blofeld character previously played by the likes of Max Von Sydow, Telly Savalas, John Hollis, Charles Gray, Anthony Dawson, and Donald Pleasance (pictured n character above).

Now, I'm hearing through the grapevine that Michael Sheen may be playing the Blofeld character in the upcoming Bond film with Daniel Craig reprising his role as the British super spy! This makes sense with Peter Morgan attached to co-write the script. Morgan has previously worked with Sheen in "The Queen" and "Frost/Nixon."

Rare Movie Alert! TCM Airs "The Anderson Tapes" Tonight

14 May 2009 11:18 PM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Turner Classic Movies (North America) is keeping their Friday night Sean Connery tributes on a hot streak. Tonight, for example, the network screens back-to-back showings of the James Bond flicks You Only Live Twice and Diamonds Are Forever, followed by a rare telecast of Sidney Lumet's 1971 thriller The Anderson Tapes which casts Connery as a master thief who devises an outlandish plan to "rob the guts" out of a New York luxury apartment building over Labor Day weekend. The film was Connery's first notable hit outside of the Bond canon, enjoying favorable reviews and substantial box-office. Not only is the Great Scot in top form, but the film benefits from a spectacular supporting cast including Dyan Cannon (stripping to her bra for a memorable bedroom scene), Ralph Meeker, comedian Alan King (excellent as mob boss), Christopher Walken (in his first feature film), Stan Gottlieb as a geriatric con man, »
