“You read every script as if you’re waiting for somebody to die.” Our visit to the set of Vikings

3 February 2014 4:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

“Ah, you f*cking idiot,” says Travis Fimmel with a broad grin and a glint in his eye, and unfortunately it’s aimed directly at this HeyUGuys writer.

It’s almost the end of our second and final day on the set of Vikings in County Wicklow, a short distance from Dublin, and we’ve finally tracked down the enigmatic lead actor who seems to have been kept busy ever since we arrived. He’s in-between scenes and in full Viking garb – his wild beard and magnificent dreadlocked hair have him looking every inch the intimidating part – and we retreat to a quiet corner of the set to begin our interview. After a polite introduction we take a seat opposite Fimmel and begin to relax.

Disney’s Hunchback To Become A Musical

28 January 2014 6:47 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With The Lion King, Beauty And The Beast and more recently Aladdin having found loving homes on Broadway, it is now the turn of The Hunchback Of Notre Dame. Though it may not be heading to the bright lights of New York, a stage adaptation of the 1996 Disney classic will be performed at California’s La Jolla Playhouse from October 28th until December 7th.

But this isn’t the first time the Paris-set musical has been seen, starting out as a German production over a decade ago. 1999′s ‘Der Glockner von Notre Dame’ was directed by James Lapine – screenwriter of Disney’s upcoming Into The Woods – and the House of Mouse are keeping it in the family with Scott Schwartz (son of songwriter Stephen) taking up the directing challenge. Lapine’s German book has been rejigged by The West Wing‘s Peter Parnell, with Smash‘s Josh Bergasse on choreographing duties. »

White House Down Blu-Ray Review

14 January 2014 12:31 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Roland Emmerich

Starring: Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, Richard Jenkins, Joey King, James Woods.

Running Time: 131 minutes

Certificate: 12

It’s easy to forget that predictability is all about context. While the likes of Avatar looks great, it encourages that disbelieving eye-roll as it fights to be cleverer than it is but when it’s White House Down, you’ve got the best old-school entertainment and is probably, wait, definitely what A Good Day To Die Hard desperately wanted to be.

For every clichéd character, including a tech-geek with a penchant for classical music, Roland Emmerich has created an explosive, »
