Bette Midler and Bailee Madison Join Billy Crystal in Us & Them

2 September 2011 2:51 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Bette Midler and Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark star Bailee Madison have signed on to join Billy Crystal in the family comedy Us & Them. The project, which has been in development for quite some time, re-teams Crystal (who hasn’t toplined a film in over ten years) with his City Slickers writers Lowell Gantz and Babaloo Mandel. The story revolves around a Fresno Aaa baseball broadcaster who is tasked with caring for his three grandchildren alongside his wife (with whom he’s going through a separation). The flick will explore the generational gap between the parenting styles of grandparents and their children. Variety reports that Midler will play Crystal’s estranged wife, while 11-year-old Madison will take on the role of one of their grandchildren. Andy Fickman (You Again) is directing the co-production between 20th Century Fox and Walden Media. Production is set to get underway later this month in Atlanta. »

Should Brett Ratner Scratch Billy Crystal's Oscar Hosting Itch?

16 August 2011 4:49 PM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

We've had seven Academy Awards since Billy Crystal last hosted the event in 2004, but he's hardly fading from our memory or our hearts. Recall, if you will, the actor's standing ovation this past February when he made a surprise appearance at the 83rd Oscars. Is it time for him to return to the Kodak stage for the lead role next year? He is our generation's Bob Hope, after all, but he's still ten ceremonies short of reaching that guy's record 18 gigs as host, so I say yes.  And Crystal might say yes, too, if asked. New remarks from the eight-time Oscar emcee have been circulating online, via Deadline.com, in which he told fans at a 20th anniversary screening of City Slickers that he's "itchy" to come back (to the Academy Awards, not for City Slickers 3: The...

Votd: 25 Actors Before They Were Famous, in 3 Minutes

16 August 2011 2:00 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] I've always had this fascination with seeing current rich and famous figures in their humble beginnings, and the success of tabloid columns and webpages devoted to that very topic suggest I'm not the only one. When some A-list faces are as familiar to us as those of our actual loved ones, seeing long-ago photos or videos of them is amusing in the same way that seeing pictures of your friends as little kids is amusing. "Before They Were Famous: 25 Actors in 3 Minutes" collects some especially amusing snippets of today's biggest stars, including Angelina Jolie, Ryan Gosling, Jack Nicholson, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, in some of their earliest acting gigs. Watch the video after the jump. They're not all first-time roles -- I'd argue that Seth Rogen in Donnie Darko hardly counts as even a pre-fame role, as he'd already starred in Freaks & Geeks by then -- but the clips collected here »

Billy Crystal May Be In Talks To Host The Oscars Again — Would You Be Relieved To See Him After Last Year’s Flub?

16 August 2011 7:49 AM, PDT | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Billy received a standing ovation at last year’s Oscars in the middle of Anne Hathaway and James Franco’s lackluster performance — Now he says he’s “itchy” to host again!

Billy Crystal was floored by the audience’s overwhelming response to his brief appearance last year, and it may be enough to convince him to come back as host, according to Deadline.com.

It’s hard to forget Anne Hathaway and James Franco‘s botch of the Feb. 2011 Academy Awards presentation. James looked like he’d rather be somewhere else and Anne tried desperately to make up for it — the end product being a noticeably awkward situation.

But Billy was unforgettable for a different reason — he was called “one of the greatest Oscar hosts of all time.” And now he may consider returning to the role! The Los Angeles Times quoted him at the American Cinematheque screening for the »

Brett Ratner Not Ready to Name Billy Crystal Oscar Host Just Yet

16 August 2011 7:30 AM, PDT | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

Following his appearance at the Academy Awards back in February, Billy Crystal said that "got a little itchy" to host the ceremonies again. "We'll see what happens," the eight-time Oscars Mc said during a 20th anniversary screening of City Slickers in Los Angeles over the weekend. "I can't promise anything." Ain't that the truth! Reached for comment by Deadline about Crystal's possible Oscars return, producer Brett Ratner seemed rather unmoved. "I didn't see what Billy said. I'm really focused on finishing my film Tower Heist right now. I was told by the Academy that I don't have to make a decision until mid-September." Good job getting that plug in, Brett! [Deadline] »

Surprise: Billy Crystal wants to host the Oscars again

After the startling news that the Academy was bringing back last year's Oscar co-producer Don Misher and teaming him with, um, Brett Ratner (lord, it's gonna be a long season) it appears one of the award show's most famous faces has seen an opening.   Speaking at a 20th anniversary screening of "City Slickers" at the Areo Theater in Santa Monica, CA, eight-time Oscar host Billy Crystal made it clear he was ready to polish that monologue one more time. According to the La Times, Crystal was quoted as saying, "It got to be too much after a while and the »

15 August 2011 4:16 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Thank the Maker for YouTube. With the advent of the video-on-demand digital age, no longer is that TV movie role that Actor X did when he was 11-years-old lost forever, and now someone’s put together a compilation of 25 “before they were famous” first roles for our viewing pleasure. Did you know that Daniel Craig was in A Kid in King Arthur’s Court? How about Joseph Gordon-Levitt on Roseanne or Jake Gyllenhaal in City Slickers? No need to hit up Netflix, some choice scenes are now all in one place. Hit the jump to watch the montage, which includes 25 sometimes painful scenes featuring Jim Carrey, Denzel Washington, Angelina Jolie, Ryan Gosling, Keanu Reeves, Nicole Kidman, Seth Rogen, Jake Gyllenhaal, Harrison Ford and more.

Billy Crystal Is "Itchy" To Host Oscars Again

15 August 2011 4:01 PM, PDT | Deadline Hollywood | See recent Deadline Hollywood news »

February's 83rd Academy Awards called him "one of the greatest Oscar hosts of all time". And Hollywood realized how much he was missed when he made a surprise appearance on stage at the Kodak Theatre last time around. Now Billy Crystal dropped a big hint this past weekend that he's "itchy" to host again. The 63-year-old actor made the remarks during a Q&A for an American Cinematheque screening to mark the 20th anniversary of his comedy City Slickers. The Los Angeles Times caught his remarks: "It got to be too much after a while and the sameness in my life. That's why I pulled back. And then when I thought I might want to do it again, they were on to other people. It's always fun. It's really hard, but maybe one or two more times? I don't know. They know where I am... I came out last year as a surprise. »

Billy Crystal Talks About Taking Monsters Inc. Back To School

15 August 2011 12:47 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Many Pixar fans are disappointed with the studio's recent decision to double back, and sequelize so much of their animation slate.   Sure, it worked for Toy Story, but few over the age of six walked away impressed with Cars 2, and it's made many wonder about Pixar's upcoming return to the land of Monsters Inc.   Are we due for another thin sequel that just concentrates on the easiest and most toy-friendly aspects of Mike and Sully?   Not according to Billy Crystal.  Hero Complex caught up with him at a 20th anniversary of City Slickers (20 years? God, I feel old.), and he was eager to discuss the return of Mike, Sully (voiced again by John Goodman), and Monsters Inc.  Crystal confirmed earlier reports that the film would be a prequel – Monsters University – and would deal with the academic years of our green and blue duo.   "We’re having a blast together. »
