Zachary Quinto to guest star on Hannibal season 3

4 March 2015 10:37 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Zachary Quinto will join Gillian Anderson in the third season of Hannibal...

Star Trek's Zachary Quinto will join Hannibal in season 3 for at least one episode. Quinto, from The Slap and American Horror Story will guest star on the NBC cut-em-up prequel series to The Silence Of The Lambs.

The actor will play a patient of Dr Bedelia Du Maurier, played by Gillian Anderson. Anderson’s role on The X-Files was loosely based on Jodie Foster’s FBI agent in the serial killer classic film. There is some speculation that Quinto may be part of a flashback to when Du Maurier killed a patient while under the influence of the good doctor with the taste for fava beans.

It was recently announced that Glenn Fleshler, who played ritual killer Errol Childress on True Detective and George Remus on Boardwalk Empire will play Mason Verger’s caretaker Cordell.

‘Seinfeld’ Actor Daniel von Bargen Dies at 64

4 March 2015 1:53 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Daniel von Bargen, a prolific character actor best known for his role as George’s lazy boss Mr. Kruger on “Seinfeld,” as Commandant Edwin Spangler, the military veteran who oversees the cadets at Marlin Academy, on TV’s “Malcolm in the Middle,” and for his role in a two-part episode of “The West Wing” in which he played Air Force General Ken Shannon, died March 1 in Montgomery, Ohio, after a long illness. He was 64 and had been dealing with health issues for the last five years.

Von Bargen was known for roles as irate or defiant cops, district attorneys, judges, and other authority figures. But he also spent a good deal of his time onstage.

The actor had most recently appeared in Thomas Edward Seymour’s 2009 feature “London Betty,” in which he starred.

But mostly von Bargen was relegated to small but frequently memorable supporting roles.

New details on Daredevil villains including The Owl and The Gladiator

4 March 2015 1:35 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re less than two months away now from the debut of Daredevil in the Marvel Universe as he kicks off their new TV franchise, before handing the reins over to A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. We know that we’ll be seeing Daredevil’s biggest adversary The Kingpin in the show, but Brazilian site The Omelete have provided some new information on other baddies.

A big thanks to the chaps over at McU Exchange for the translation.

The site reports that Melvin Potter, aka The Gladiator, will play a “large part” in the show as Wilson Fisk’s weapon guy and will be providing The Kingpin with some kitted out cars and even a kevlar suit. The Gladiator was one of Daredevil’s early villains but would eventually reform and become an ally to the Man Without Fear down the line.

The Kingpin featured in new stills from Marvel’s Daredevil

2 March 2015 6:59 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We caught a glimpse of Wilson Fisk (from behind, anyway) in the first trailer for Marvel’s Daredevil, but now USA Today has given us our first real look at The Kingpin by releasing two stills of Vincent D’Onofrio in character as the crime lord…

“I just brought in this kind of character who in one sentence could easily go from being a child to a monster, depending on where his emotions take him,” states D’Onofrio. “I wanted him to have an appearance of being super-powerful so that when he throws a punch, it’s a major punch. There’s a lot of weight behind it.”

New details about Daredevil’s timeline, Easter eggs and second season possibility

26 February 2015 12:14 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re now only about a month and a half away from the premiere of Marvel’s Daredevil Netflix series, and still know very little about the show itself and how it ties into the rest of Marvel’s ever-expanding cinematic universe. Thanks to new interviews conducted by Empire Magazine, however, we do have some new details regarding the show’s timeline and possible future.

With the series premiering in April, a whole month before the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, it was to be expected that the show would take place before the events of the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ latest team-up. According to Marvel Television’s Emma Fleischer, the series will rewind the timeline back to the first Avengers film, and deal with the fallout of the Chitauri invasion:

Where do the new Oscar winners stack up with previous winners?

25 February 2015 11:20 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Today, in an effort to combine the past and the present, I wanted to take a look at how the winners in the big eight categories of this most recent Academy Awards ceremony compare to the all time best. To try and figure this out, I’m actually going with the lists of the top 25 in each category that I put out last year. It’s an interesting exercise, since it’s impossible to know which will and which won’t stand the test of time, but there’s a few educated guesses that can be made. For my money, a few of the performances will certainly be remembered for years to come. I don’t think it’s impossible for you to have forgotten already, but here are the big eight winners: Best Picture went to Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance, Best Director went to Alejandro González Iñárritu »

Oscars Facts: 25 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Academy Awards

20 February 2015 2:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The 87th Academy Awards are this Sunday evening, and we're counting down the minutes!

We've already given you our Oscar predictions, and now we're bringing you a few of the best (and craziest) Academy Awards facts. From the first Best Actor winner to the "one dollar" Oscar rule, here are 25 things you (probably) don't know about the Oscars.

1. The youngest Oscar winner was Tatum O'Neal, who won Best Supporting Actress for "Paper Moon" (1973) when she was only 10 years old. Shirley Temple won the short-lived Juvenile Award at 6 years old.

2. At 82, Christopher Plummer became the oldest person to win an Academy Award. He received the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his work in "Beginners" (2010) opposite Ewan McGregor.

3. After winning Best Actress for "Cabaret" (1972), Liza Minnelli became (and still is) the only Oscar winner whose parents both earned Oscars. Her mother, Judy Garland, received an honorary award in 1939 and her father, Vincente Minnelli, »

Can you ace HitFix's brutal 21-question Oscars quiz?

19 February 2015 4:26 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Oscars are less than 96 hours away, so you only have a limited amount of time to brag about your insane knowledge of Academy Awards history. Ready for a brutal 21-question foray into Oscar's grisly past? Let's roll. (We give you the questions on the first page. Jot down your responses, then check the answers, along with the accompanying questions, on the next page. The videos embedded here aren't related to the questions. They're just fun!) 1. What ‘90s Best Actor winner gave the shortest onscreen performance ever nominated (and therefore awarded) in that category? This is measured by total minutes and seconds spent onscreen. 2. The first (and so far only) black female nominee in the Best Original Screenplay category was a co-writer of what biopic released in the 1970s? 3. From 1937 to 1945, the Academy guaranteed nominations in one particular category to any studio that submitted a qualifiable entry. What was the category? »

Best Picture 1991 – The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

18 February 2015 11:46 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To celebrate the Oscars this weekend, the Flickering Myth writing team look back at some of the previous Best Picture winners. First up, Helen Murdoch looks back at 1991’s The Silence of the Lambs

Winner of the Big 5 Academy Awards – Actor, Actress, Adapted Screenplay, Director and Picture – The Silence of the Lambs is a twisted thriller that has endeared for over 20 years. Helmed by Jonathan Demme, The Silence of the Lambs is the second of the Hannibal novels and follows Clarice Starling as she hunts serial killer Buffalo Bill with the help of imprisoned killer Hannibal Lecter. From its opening shot through the cold woods through to the first meeting with Lecter and its pitch black crescendo, it’s a film that doesn’t let up and keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout.

Freeze Frame: Greatest shots from the Best Picture nominees

18 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The movies that stick with us are made up of so many things: great lines, beautiful actors, exciting scenes, and catchy scores to name but a few. Sometimes though, the great memories these films leave us with can come flooding back with one simple thing – a great shot.

This is especially true of the Oscar nominees for Best Picture throughout the years.

Just think of the fear that comes to mind whenever you see Hannibal Lecter glaring from his cell in The Silence of The Lambs, or the sweet sorrow seeing Jack and Rose on the bow of The Titanic. Odds are you won’t soon forget the tension you felt the first time you saw Sgt. James pull up five buried bombs in The Hurt Locker, or a brimming sense of adventure as The Fellowship of The Ring first gathered in Rivendale.

Re-Viewed: Michael Mann introduces Hannibal in Manhunter

17 February 2015 10:11 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Last month it was announced that Richard Armitage (The Hobbit's Thorin) is to play Frances Dolarhyde in season 3 of NBC's hit TV series Hannibal. Dolarhyde, a serial killer who leaves bite marks on his victims and is thus granted the nom de plume The Tooth Fairy, will reportedly feature in a six-episode arc touching upon the events of Red Dragon.

It was Red Dragon, both Thomas Harris's 1991 novel and Brett Ratner's 2002 movie, that many articles referenced when reporting the Armitage news, with scribes recalling Ralph Fiennes's haunting portrayal of the home-invasion killer who slays entire families. Less common, but more discerning, were the recollections of Tom Noonan's towering, heavyweight (6'7" and 217lb, to be exact) take on Dolarhyde in Michael Mann's atmosphere-drenched 1986 adaptation, Manhunter.

Mann's movie might have jettisoned Harris's title to avoid confusion with Year of the Dragon, which flopped the previous year, and »

It’s Been 17 Years Since American Actors Have Swept the Oscar’s Acting Categories

12 February 2015 10:17 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

On any given year, the four acting winners are usually a mix of American and non-American actors, but this year could see all four acting awards go to American actors for the first time in 17 years.

If Michael Keaton beats Eddie Redmayne for lead actor and the current projected frontrunners — supporting actress nominee Patricia Arquette, supporting actor nominee J.K. Simmons and lead actress nominee Julianne Moore — also win, it will be the first time since 1998 that all of the acting awards were given to American actors. (It will also be the second time in 77 years that all of the winners have been 46 or older.)

In contrast, the last time all four awards went to non-American actors was in 2008, when Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Javier Bardem and Tilda Swinton all won.

Since 1980, there have been eight instances where American actors were awarded all four acting Oscars. »

“Killer Instinct”: Top Ten Disturbed Deviants in the Movies

8 February 2015 1:49 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Cinema deviants can come in all forms or variety. It is just a matter of taking your pick as to what kind of deviant you consider. Perhaps your preference of deviant is of the sexual or molesting persuasion? Or maybe in the arena of hustlers or swindlers or cheaters? Will notorious gangsters and corrupt officials fit the bill for your definition of legitimate deviant sources?

The one type of deviant prototype that no one can question or disregard in terms of an impacting impression is the serial killer…or any killer where the impulse to slaughter is mindless fun or in some cases a perverse release to punish society for their own inner psychological demons and despair.

In “Killer Instinct”: Top Ten Disturbed Deviants in the Movies we will look at the selections of twisted individuals whose overwhelming passion for the pleasure of pain and punishment against their fellow »
