Great Job, Internet!: Roger Moore’s Live And Let Die diary suggests he knows the truth about JFK

24 April 2017 9:53 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Not everything about Live And Let Die, James Bond’s blaxploitation adventure, has aged well. The rubber snakes shown are not very convincing, for one thing, and for another the whole movie is really racist. (A review in The New York Times noted that you rarely saw its level of racial animus in theaters “these days,” meaning 1973.) But there is something about the film, apart from the crocodile stunt, that’s only gotten more amazing over time: the shooting journal that Roger Moore wrote as an official tie-in, which Phil Nobile Jr. of Birth. Movies. Death. has brought to the internet’s attention.

Writing with the candor of a man who knows that nobody is ever giving his role back to George Lazenby, Moore fills his book with powerful burns on producer Harry Saltzman:

Harry has a nasty habit of walking into a restaurant and demanding whether the service »

Random Roles: Jane Seymour on how Dr. Quinn was not supposed to last and her “whole new career” in comedy

16 April 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Welcome to Random Roles, wherein we talk to actors about the characters who defined their careers. The catch: They don’t know beforehand what roles we’ll ask them to talk about.

The actor: Since making her film debut in 1969, Jane Seymour has experienced a number of career renaissances and repeatedly managed to reinvent herself as an actor, something that happens all too infrequently in Hollywood. While you can attribute part of her success to her ability to bounce between high drama and lowbrow comedy seemingly without blinking an eye, it’s just as likely because she doesn’t like to lose. With a filmography that includes spies (Live And Let Die), Cylons (Battlestar Galactica), century-spanning romance (Somewhere In Time), frat-boy comedy (Wedding Crashers), and life in a frontier town (Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman), Seymour keeps audiences guessing as to where she’s going to turn up next. Currently ...

Clifton James, Famed Character Actor And James Bond Veteran, Dead At 96

16 April 2017 6:59 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Clifton James, the respected character actor who rose to fame as the bumbling southern Sheriff J.W. Pepper in two James Bond films, has passed away at age 96. James, a decorated veteran of WWII, appeared in many prominent films and TV series. Among his feature films: "Cool Hand Luke", "The Bonfire of the Vanities", "The Untouchables", "Juggernaut", "The Last Detail", "Will Penny" and "Something Wild". The portly James often portrayed lawmen and judges. His most prominent role came in Roger Moore's 1973 debut film as James Bond, "Live and Let Die".  The character of Pepper as a comical racist lawman named Sheriff J.W. Pepper undoubtedly made audiences laugh. But to die-hard Bond fans his presence represented the increasing amount of slapstick that characterized some of Moore's Bond films. The producers brought the character back in the 1974 007 film "The Man with the Golden Gun" in which he coincidentally »

Josh Brolin Nicks Role of Cable in "Deadpool 2"

13 April 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Daniel Crooke

After ages of anticipation, Marvel Cinematic Universe fans’ long international nightmare is over: Deadpool 2 has finally cast the coveted role of Cable, the central villain for the sequel.

In one of the more noteworthy examples of franchise double duty since Swedish soap star Maud Adams seduced audiences in two separate James Bond outings (Octopussy and Live and Let Die, for those keeping score at home) Josh Brolin – Thanos, Destroyer of Realms, himself – has landed his second role as a Marvel baddie in the upcoming sequel to the surprise 2015 superhero hit. Beating out Michael Shannon and David Harbour to clinch the part, Brolin now has the distinction of not only playing the McU’s preeminent bad guy, but the antihero’s enemy in the Deadpool offshoot as well; while they share a foundational mythology, the Deadpool films belong to Marvel Entertainment and not the Disney-owned Marvel Studios. »

Before Lady Gaga hits the Super Bowl Li stage on Sunday, Et is looking back at the stars who have made the biggest impact during the big game.

While the Super Bowl halftime show is the most-watched live performance on TV in America today, it wasn't always such a big deal. For the first 24 years, the halftime show was primarily just marching bands and flag-spinning tributes.

Watch: Super Bowl Li: Everything You Need to Know Ahead of the Big Game!

When competing networks started counterprogramming is when the show's producers started booking big name acts, but the show would never be the same after Michael Jackson rocked the crowd at Super Bowl Xxvii.

1. Michael Jackson (1993)

If you grew up in the '90s, you remember this show. M.J. pulled off an unprecedented spectacular performance complete with the late Grammy winner exploding out of the bottom of the stage.
