Santa Barbara Fest to Honor Steve Carell as Performer of the Year

17 November 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Steve Carell will be saluted as performer of the year at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival in ceremonies on Feb. 6.

Carell will receive a tribute celebrating his performance in Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher.” Sbiff executive director Roger Durling commented, “He’s made us laugh for so many years with his great comedic abilities, but he shows this year that his range and artistry runs deep with his career-changing performance in ‘Foxcatcher.’  He is unrecognizable physically and emotionally.”

The Sony Pictures Classics release opened Nov. 14 with a strong $288,113 on six screens or a $48,019 per-screen average in a limited bow. Carell, Miller and the film itself have been stirring up Oscar buzz since it debuted at Cannes in May.

Carell made his bigscreen debut in the 1991 “Curly Sue.” He has scored onscreen in such films as “The 40-Year-Old-Virgin,” “Little Miss Sunshine” and “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” but his work as the real-life »

Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner Talk Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, Who Ruined the Most Takes, Curly Sue, and More

9 October 2014 12:29 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Opening this weekend is director Miguel Arteta’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.  Based on the classic children’s book of the same name, the film follows 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) as he experiences the most terrible day of his young life.  But then, things get even worse and Alexander finds himself watching his upbeat parents (Jennifer Garner and Steve Carell), older brother (Dylan Minnette) and sister (Kerris Dorsey), and even the little baby of the family (Zoey and Elise Vargas) going through a string of events so terrible that they make up the baddest of very bad days.  For more on the film, watch the trailer here. At the recent Los Angeles press day I landed a video interview with Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner.  They talked about working with the kids, who ruined the most takes from laughing, being able to share the film with their families, »

“Hannibal” Season 2′s Tastiest Moments

22 May 2014 5:58 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Around this time last year I wrote a piece gushing about the operatic ghoulishness of NBC’s Hannibal. This Season carnage maestro Bryan Fuller and his merry band of dismemberists returned to outdo their own impressive bodycount and mess with our minds, expectations, and appetites. This week the season finale promises to explain the mind-boggling fight-to-the-death that opened the season, and presumably to send the story off in another unexpected direction for the eagerly anticipated – and recently announced – Season 3.

As we near the bloody finish, let’s look back at a few of the moments that we will never be able to get out of our heads, even with the assistance of a bonesaw.

(in roughly chron order)

1. Jack Attacks Hannibal

The season started with a bang, as Jack Crawford (Lawrence Fishburne) appeared at Hannibal’s (Mads Mikkelsen) house – not to sup on his delicious, homemade gourmet meals, but to fuck his shit up. »
