Whitney Houston, Jennie Rivera and more of 2012's Gone but Not Forgotten

31 December 2012 11:00 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

As a new year dawns, a tribute to those we've lost in the year now ending is merited ... and in 2012, those sad milestones have encompassed some of the most popular personalities in television history.

Andy Griffith: The actor-producer who put Mayberry on the map forever will be remembered as one of television's most genial personalities, also extending to his run as wily lawyer Matlock.

Dick Clark: The number of music stars who owe at least part of their success to the "American Bandstand" maestro is incalculable. Thanks to him, people also enjoy "New Year's Rockin' Eve," receive American Music Awards and have a greater appreciation of bloopers. Here's a "so long" salute to you, Dick.

Larry Hagman: The truly unfortunate irony of the veteran actor's recent death is that he was just starting his second round of "Dallas" success as master schemer J.R. Ewing. He'll also »

Bryan Cranston: 'I had to take my character from Mr Chips to Scarface'

29 October 2012 7:39 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Bryan Cranston was a jobbing actor for years… then came the role of a lifetime in Breaking Bad and three successive Emmy wins. Here he tells us how being TV's chemistry teacher/drug baron Walter White changed his life

There are some actors' names – Errol Flynn, Marlon Brando, Johnny Depp – which, even if they were not famous, would still evoke images of romance, danger, drama. Then there is Bryan Cranston. It's hard to conceive of a more prosaic appellation. It's almost perfectly anonymous. Authentic but dully inconspicuous, it's a background kind of name. A solid name for a solid character actor.

Which is what Cranston was for almost three decades. On film and on television, he was repeatedly to be found in supporting roles, slowly building a reputation as a reliable and flexible performer who was equally adept in comedy and drama. Always in employment, he would crop up in shows such as Baywatch, »

Our "Total Recall" Interviews: Colin Farrell, Bryan Cranston, Kate Beckinsale, and Jessica Biel

2 August 2012 5:43 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Total Recall is a sci-fi remake with a mysterious amount of gay appeal: Not only does Colin Farrell shirtlessly roam some dystopian streets, but Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel are modern-day Emma Peels/Lara Crofts (depending on where your allegiances lie) with their glamorous fight choreography and grit. Then there's nefarious baddie Bryan Cranston, who is awesome to just about everyone. He may win his fourth Emmy for Breaking Bad this year. That's a Probst number!

I interviewed the cast at the Total Recall press junket and forced them to have fun with me. I dare you not to fall in love with Bryan Cranston after he explains how he met his wife on the set of Airwolf and tells you his favorite gay entertainer of all time. (An entertainer who, to possibly everyone's surprise, takes great umbrage at being referred to as "gay".)

Interview: Phil Lord and Chris Miller Talk 21 Jump Street and the Lego Movie as ‘Inception for Kids’

12 July 2012 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

To celebrate the release of 21 Jump Street on DVD and Blu-ray, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to speak to the directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, about the film and their upcoming projects.

Touching on everything from Channing Tatum’s love for improvising stunts to Tom Selleck’s moustache, it’s fair to say our interview covered rather a lot of ground! Every inch as charming and entertaining as you’d expect, the pair gave a brilliant insight into the funniest film of the year.

HeyUGuys: Congratulations to you both for delivering the best comedy we’ve had this year.

Chris: That’s crazy – we’ll take that!

You must have absolutely jumped at the chance to direct a script from Jonah Hill and Michael Bacall. After focusing so much on animation, how did you end up getting the job?

Phil: We had Michael Bacall’s script »

Ernest Borgnine obituary

Stocky supporting actor who won an Oscar when he was cast against type as a lonely butcher in Marty

With his coarsely podgy features, bug eyes, gap-toothed grin and stocky build, Ernest Borgnine, who has died aged 95 of renal failure, seemed destined to remain one of nature's supporting actors in a string of sadistic and menacing parts. Instead he won an Oscar for a role which was the antithesis of all his previous characters.

In 1955, the producer Harold Hecht wanted to transfer Paddy Chayefsky's teleplay Marty to the big screen, with Rod Steiger in the title role, which he had created. But Steiger was filming Oklahoma! so was unavailable. Borgnine was offered the role after a female guest at a Hollywood reception quite disinterestedly remarked to Hecht that, ugly as he was, Borgnine possessed an oddly tender quality which made her yearn to mother him. "That," Hecht said later, »

Ernest Borgnine 1919-2012

9 July 2012 9:02 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

After the loss of Andy Griffith last week, we've now got another dose of sad news as Ernest Borgnine reportedly passed away over the weekend as well. Best known for playing the lead role as Lt. Commander Quinton McHale on McHale's Navy and also for starring in such classics as The Dirty Dozen and The Wild Bunch, Borgnine was clearly comfortable on both the big screen and the small screen. He won an Oscar in 1955 for Delbert Mann's Marty, which also happened to win Best Picture that year. Borgnine died of kidney failure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles with his wife and children by his side. He was 95 years old. Borgnine was still working pretty much right up to the end, having appeared as Henry The Records Keeper in Red back in 2010, and also continuing to voice Mermaid Man on Spongebob Squarepants for over a decade.

Actor who won an Oscar for his role as Marty in the 1955 film of the same name had a 60-year career in film and television

Ernest Borgnine, the Italian-American actor who carved out a distinctive screen presence in a range of pugnacious character roles over a 60-year career, has died at the age of 95.

Borgnine won an Oscar for his role as Marty in the 1955 film of the same name, and was a star of the small screen during the 1960s as the scheming Navy officer in the comedy McHale's Navy. In the 80s, he came to the attention of a new generation of TV viewers as Dominic Santini in the hit series Airwolf.

In other roles, particularly during the earlier years of his career, his stocky build and bulldog appearance made him a natural choice to play the classic Hollywood 'heavy' and he was memorable as the sergeant who »

Ernest Borgnine Passes Away at 95

8 July 2012 11:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Oscar-winner and Emmy-nominated actor Ernest Borgnine passed away today due to renal failure at the age of 95. He spent his last minutes alive at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles alongside his wife and kids.

The actor won a Best Actor Oscar for his performance as a lovesick butcher in Marty in 1955. He also starred alongside Frank Sinatra in From Here to Eternity, where he beats the singer to death. He most recently played Henry, The Records Keeper in Robert Schwentke's action thriller Red in 2010.

The humble actor had this to say when he was honored with the 47th Annual Life Achievement Award for career achievement and humanitarian accomplishments.

"Heck, I'm just a character actor for God sakes. I'm no big star. It was my mom who told me, 'Ernie, if you make even one person happy with your smile or a funny thing you did every day, you'll have accomplished a great deal. »

Film News: ‘Marty’ Oscar Winner Ernest Borgnine Dies at 95

8 July 2012 9:51 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Los Angeles – Ernest Borgnine was the movie star who was America’s “every man,” with roles like his Best Actor Oscar winning “Marty” (1955), Quinton McHale in TV’s “McHale’s Navy” (1962), tough guy Fatso Judson in the classic film “From Here to Eternity” (1953) and even as a cartoon voice (Mermaid Man) on “Spongebob Squarepants.” Borgnine died Sunday in Los Angeles at the age of 95.

I interviewed Ernest Borgnine twice for HollywoodChicago.com, and his wit, passion and voice was as strong in his 90s as it was sixty years earlier. He told me stories from the sets of “Marty,” “Emperor of the North” (1973) and “September 11” (2002), as if they had happened yesterday, with the same emphasis on the love of life that sustained him in his long career in show business, appearing in unforgettable film and TV roles.

Ernest Borgnine dead at 95

Ernest Borgnine had a career in Hollywood that spanned six decades, starting in 1951 and leading right up to the 2010s. Throughout those years his stocky, solid frame filled the television box and on the big screen where the Italian actor commanded your attention in whatever part he played. He seemed to remake himself every 15 or so years, finding a second, then a third and a fourth career to a new generation of watchers.

His Oscar win for playing a unloved butcher in 1955's Marty was well before my time, so my memories of the big man are skewed through younger eyes. When I was a kid growing up in the 1970s, Ernest Borgnine was one of those guys I saw in war movies and TV shows. On Saturday afternoons I would see him and guys like Lee Marvin fighting Nazis in The Dirty Dozen or with William Holden taking on »

Ernest Borgnine Dies at Age 95

8 July 2012 4:43 PM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Hollywood lost one of the most prolific and acclaimed actors in film history today, as Oscar winner and television icon Ernest Borgnine has died, CNN reports. He was 95.

Born in 1917, Borgnine didn't take up acting until after leaving the Navy at the end of World War II. He was an immediate hit, appearing in a number of stage, television and film productions before earning raves as Sgt. "Fatso" Judson in 1953's "From Here to Eternity." That propelled the muscular and broad-faced Borgnine into the somewhat unlikely role of leading man in 1955's "Marty," a performance which earned him the Oscar for Best Actor.

Borgnine rose to even greater fame, however, in the 1960's when he headlined the popular sitcom "McHale's Navy," playing the title character; the show, which ran for four seasons, also spawned a theatrical film.

One of the hardest working actors in Hollywood, Borgnine continued to appear in »
