Fight Club: Ryan Gosling Vs. George Clooney

4 October 2011 3:00 PM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Ryan Gosling is having a career year, with three buzzed-about performances in three critical darlings, and he faces the possibility of having to choose which project he'd rather see get some Oscar shine.

George Clooney, meanwhile, is continuing to have one helluva career. Hollywood's reigning King of Cool could be a contender in the both the Best Director and Best Actor races ... for different movies.

The heavyweights square off in "The Ides of March," the Clooney-directed political thriller starring Gosling as an ace campaign strategist facing serious ethical dilemmas (and costarring Clooney as a politician who positions himself as an"Agent of Change").

Is the suddenly ubiquitous Gosling a threat to Clooney's Tinseltown throne? We asked writers Cassie Carpenter (representing Gosling) and Todd Gilchrist (representing Clooney) to go at it in our inaugural edition of "Fight Club." Ding ding.

Cassie: Ryan Gosling plays more mysterious, complex characters. He takes bigger risks than George Clooney. »

Charlie Sheen Vs. a Grizzly Bear - Aka The Greatest Film Never Seen

2 March 2011 4:42 PM, PST | | See recent Dread Central news »

In 1983 David Sheldon was busy shooting Grizzly 2: The Predator, aka Predator: The Concert. Grizzly 2 boasted early performances by George Clooney, Laura Dern, and the Internet's current golden boy, Charlie Sheen, who plays a hiker who serves as the bear's first victim.

The film would later become somewhat of an urban legend as far as horror movies go due to the fact that it was never completed. Supposedly the film was released as a TV movie, but no official release has ever been made theatrically or on home video. Here's the synopsis:

All hell breaks loose when a giant Grizzly, reacting to the slaughter of Grizzlies by poachers, attacks at a massive big-band rock concert in the National Park.

Rumors abound as to what the actual reason for the film's incomplete nature was. From misappropriation of budget to bankruptcy lawsuits, faulty animatronics, and even an issue over the rights to the Grizzly title itself. »
