James Shigeta, Star of ‘Flower Drum Song’ and ‘Die Hard’ Co-Star, Dies at 81

28 July 2014 7:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

James Shigeta, one of the first prominent Asian-American actors, who co-starred in “Die Hard” and starred in “Flower Drum Song,” died Monday at 81.

Though largely a TV actor who guest-starred on dozens of shows, he appeared memorably in hit 1988 action film “Die Hard,” in which he played executive Joseph Takagi, who refuses to give up the security code to the skyscraper’s bank vault when a group of German terrorists seizes the building. He was shot in the head by the group’s leader, Hans Gruber, played by Alan Rickman.

In the big-budget WWII film “Midway” (1976), which told the story of the key battle from both American and Japanese points of view, Shigeta was featured prominently in the role of Vice Admiral Nagumo, whose despair at Japan’s loss in the battle is moving.

The actor had most recently appeared in the 2009 film “The People I’ve Slept With,” directed by Quentin Lee. »

Rip: Batman The Animated Series Voice Actor Bob Hastings

1 July 2014 10:40 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Bob Hastings, who voiced Commissioner Gordon on Batman: The Animated Series, as well as Clark Kent and Superboy in The Superman/Batman Hour and Superboy in the 1960's, has passed away. According to The Burbank Leader, Hastings died of pancreatic cancer, which he had been battling for the last 15 years.  People like Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill get a lot of credit for voicing Batman and the Joker, respectively, but Hastings put his own iconic stamp on the character of Commissioner Gordon, which undoubtedly influenced the live action versions we've seen in various Batman films.  Hastings lent his voice to a variety of voicework for decades. His credits include Batman: The Mystery of the Batwoman, Batman: The Rise of Sin Tzu videogame, Static Shock, Gotham Girls, Jak and Daxter, The New Batman Adventures, Superman, Batman: The Animated Series, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, Challenge of the SuperFriends, The Munsters, »

Critical Mass: Come for the Transformers, stay for the critics' zingers

27 June 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Critics have long given Michael Bay and his Transformers franchise the high hat—but after more than $2.7 billion in box office across the globe, the filmmaker can basically thumb his nose at the naysayers who sniff at his brand of CG rock-em, sock-em spectacle. The fourth film, Transformers: The Age of Extinction, is both a sequel and a reboot, with Mark Wahlberg coming aboard to anchor the franchise as a poor Texas inventor who accidentally salvages the remnants of Optimus Prime and gets entangled in a city-leveling war between good and bad alien ‘bots, as well as the secret »

In Defense Of Ted McGinley!

30 May 2014 11:04 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Ted McGinley. Ted McGinley

The name strikes fear in the hearts of TV showrunners, desperate to get their shows to the required amount necessary for syndication (secret: It’s all about syndication). Since Ted made his acting debut in the waning years of Happy Days, he’s been used as an easy scapegoat and punching bag (and line) as a “Show Killer,” someone whose very presence dooms a show to cancellation.

Nothing could be further from the truth, and it’s time to set the record straight. For Ted’s 56th Birthday today … let’s finally clear his name.

Ted is usually blamed for helping these three shows Jump The Shark, so let’s dissect each one, and examine the evidence!

 

Happy Days

Seasons On Show: Four (1980-84)

Ratings Decline: #15, #18, #28, Not In Top 30

On Til The End?: Yes

The “Show Killer” accusation first began when Ted joined Season Eight »

'The Wolverine' Director James Mangold Circles Joe Namath Biopic

28 May 2014 6:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Filmmaker James Mangold (The Wolverine) is currently in early talks to direct a biopic centering on the life of iconic NFL quarterback Joe Namath.

If the filmmaker signs on, he will reunite with his 3:10 to Yuma screenwriters Derek Haas and Michael Brandt, who are writing the script.

After playing college football at the University of Alabama, under legendary head coach Robert 'Bear' Bryant, Joe Namath spent a bulk of his NFL playing career with the New York Jets, leading his team to an improbable upset victory in Super Bowl III over the highly-favored Baltimore Colts. He helped celebrate that win by opening the New York City bar Bachelors III on the Upper East Side. The quarterback was well known for his partying and womanizing ways, which helped earn him the nickname Broadway Joe, along with his penchant for wearing fur coats on the sidelines, which was later banned.

ABC’s New Schedule: Intriguing New Shows, But Familiar Problems at the Last-Place Network

13 May 2014 3:35 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Smart networks are ones which allow themselves to be defined, at least in part, by their most successful producers. During the 1970s, ABC rode to the top of the ratings for the first time ever by embracing the post-Vietnam escapism of Aaron Spelling (The Love Boat) and Garry Marshall (Happy Days). CBS has dominated broadcast TV in the 21st century by continuously cloning the crime procedural formula perfected by Jerry Bruckheimer (CSI). And today, ABC announced a new schedule which suggests that its strategy for climbing out of fourth place will be to embrace the ethos of Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes — and not just by turning over the entirety of its Thursday lineup to her shows.Almost everywhere you look on the ABC schedule (or its list of upcoming shows), Rhimes’s DNA is evident. There are all the shows with non-white leads (Black-ish, Cristela and »

ABC Fall Schedule: Shonda Rhimes Owns Thursdays, Black-ish Gets the Post-Modern Family Slot

13 May 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

ABC is going all in on Must-Shonda TV: The fourth-place network today unveiled a new fall schedule anchored by a Thursday night lineup comprised entirely of shows from creator Shonda Rhimes and her Shondaland production banner. Red-hot Scandal will take over the 9 p.m. Thursday timeslot and serve as a lead-in to How to Get Away with Murder, the new Rhimes legal thriller starring Viola Davis. That’ll push Grey’s Anatomy out of its long-time perch, to 8 p.m. Thursday. (This is not the first time in ABC’s illustrious history that the network has given over a night to a single creative entity: In March 1982, ABC plopped Aaron Spelling’s T.J. Hooker on Saturdays at 8, pairing it with the prolific producer’s The Love Boat and Fantasy Island for a totally Spelling lineup that would run for two more years.) Meanwhile, other big ABC moves include the long »

He also appeared on series and TV and in made for television movies, one of which, “Bill,” the touching story of a mentally challenged man, won him an Emmy. He was Emmy nominated three other times. And for “Sugar Babies,” a musical revue in which he starred with Ann Miller, »
