Mark Hamill Plays a Secret Second Character in Last Jedi

Mark Hamill Plays a Secret Second Character in Last Jedi
Mark Hamill's performance in Star Wars: The Last Jedi was pretty amazing. To see somebody who was so full of hope in the first Star Wars trilogy go from that to the broken, disheveled man we see on Ahch-To is fascinating. Luke Skywalker has been through hell and he doesn't appear as if he has fully returned when Rey, Chewie, and R2-D2 come to ask for his help. Mark Hamill had to channel some dark times to get where he needed to be to play the broken-down Jedi, but knowing the actor's sense of humor, he also had to have a different creative outlet on the movie. Eagle-eyed moviegoers who stuck around hoping for a Marvel-like post credit scene noticed that Mark Hamill also plays a character named Dobbu Scay. Who the heck is Dobbu Scay?

While the credits are rolling, Mark Hamill's name comes up again as Dobbu Scay,

Beanie Feldstein Is the Broadway Star-Turned-Movie Star Next Door (Exclusive)

Beanie Feldstein Is the Broadway Star-Turned-Movie Star Next Door (Exclusive)
Eight shows a week, Beanie Feldstein takes the stage at the Shubert Theatre in New York City to perform in the revival of Hello, Dolly! Wearing a pastel pink bodice adorned with frilly violet lace, a bustling striped skirt and a mop of curls atop her head, the 24-year-old belts out a rousing rendition of “Motherhood” as shop girl Minnie Fay. "I stand for motherhood, America and a hot lunch for orphans / Take off your hat, sir, while your country's flag is passing," she sings alongside her co-star, Bette Midler.

It's quite a Broadway debut, one that Feldstein, who spent her formative summers at the prestigious acting camp Stagedoor Manor and her high school years obsessing over musical theater with best friend (and Dear Evan Hansen star) Ben Platt, could only have dreamed of. Being cast in the company of a legend of screen and stage in an award-winning production -- Midler won a Tony for Hello, Dolly

Paris Hilton Wears a Mermaid One-Piece on Her Vacation in the Maldives

Paris Hilton is, and forever will be, an icon. While her socialite hey-day was obviously in the early aughts when it seemed like she was everywhere you looked, wearing a Von Dutch hat and low-slung Juicy Couture velour track pants, closely accompanied by her constant companions Nicole Richie and/or Lindsay Lohan, and mumbling, “That’s Hot,” at anything and everything that crossed her path. But the heiress’s influence clearly knows no bounds as even this new generation of models and It-Girls want to imitate her style from that era, with even Kendall Jenner expertly recreating her 21st birthday

8 Million Ways to Die

Tonight on ‘movies we really want to like’ we have Hal Ashby’s final feature, an L.A.- based crime saga with a great cast and spirited direction and . . . and not much else. It isn’t the train wreck described in Kino’s candid actor interviews, but we can see only too well why it wasn’t a big winner when new. Any day that a Jeff Bridges picture doesn’t shine, is a dark day in my book.

Kanye West's Emotional Birthday Gift For Kim Kardashian Was Not at All What You'd Expect
Happy Birthday babe pic.twitter.com/Ee38e4LVFj - Kanye West (@kanyewest) October 21, 2016 Kim Kardashian turned 36 last week, and Kanye West went all out to celebrate, as usual. But instead of gifting his wife with a giant diamond or wall of white roses, Kanye went a softer, more laid-back route: the rapper put together a five-and-a-half-minute video full of memorable moments from Kim's childhood and teenage years. Set to his hit song "Only One," which was written about his daughter, North West, Kanye's heartfelt gift gives the world a peek into Kim's life before fame. It features sweet footage of her early years and interactions with sisters Kourtney, Khloé, Kendall, and Kylie and brother Rob, as well as heartwarming memories and words of encouragement from her late father, Robert Kardashian, and grandmother Helen. In the wake of Kim's terrifying attack and robbery in Paris, it's definitely an emotional thing to watch.

From Must-See TV to Peak TV: 20 Years of covering television
If you were a TV critic from 1956 to 1976, you would have witnessed some big changes in the business: the rise and fall of the Western as the dominant primetime genre, or the color TV boom, or CBS' shift from silly rural comedies to socially conscious ones like All in the Family and M*A*S*H. If you covered the beat from 1976 to 1996, you would have written about Hill Street Blues and its many imitators, the classic years of SNL, and the early days of original cable programming. Almost any 20-year span would give you a front row seat to enormous artistic and technological change. As of this week, I've been professionally writing about television for exactly 20 years(*), and it's safe to say that the only two-decade period that featured a more radical transformation in how television was made and consumed would be back when the medium was first introduced into America's living rooms.

The Tribe | Blu-ray Review

One of the most pleasurable discoveries out of the 2014 Cannes Film Festival was Ukrainian director Miroslav Slaboshpitsky’s debut The Tribe, which won three awards after competing in the parallel Critics’ Week sidebar, including the Grand Prize (the title lost the coveted Camera d’Or at the festival to the Un Certain Regard opener, Party Girl). The film collected a host of additional awards during its festival circuit run, including a New Auteurs award at the AFI Film Festival before Us distributor Drafthouse unleashed it for a limited theatrical run in June of 2015, before ending up on many year-end best lists.

In a sea of derivative cinematic components, wholly original ideas seem few and far between. In a move that recalls the style of silent cinema engagement (once viewed as a detriment to the possibilities of cinematic communication), this is presented without subtitle, cue card, or translation, set within a

He'll play Victor, who's been described by Deadline Hollywood as "a career builder and politician from a young age. There is arrogance and impatience about him. All this masks the underlying fear that he’ll one day be found out — that he isn’t quite good enough."

Happy birthday, Parker Posey: 7 moments of brilliance
Parker Posey, who has been called "quirky" more times than a coloring book illustration of Zooey Deschanel, just celebrated her 46th birthday. Because I can't think of a more distinct and slyly bad-ass addition to the silver screen, let's count up seven moments of Posey greatness.  1. The Dairy Queen returns to her kingdom in "Waiting for Guffman" You can also get a couple of Cokes there. 2. Darla teaches us the ropes in this improvised "Dazed and Confused" interview. Her complicated feelings about boys are downright poetic. 3.

I've double-checked that the rankings are 100% accurate, particularly where Parker Posey's performance as the unforgettable Jennifer Jolie comes in.  4.

French Sales Agents, Cnc Join Forces On New Subsidy Plan, Unveil White Paper

Dijon, France– The National Film Board, Cnc, presented a long-gestated subsidy fund for international sales agents at the 25th annual confab hosted by Arp, the guild regrouping auteurs, directors and producers on Friday. The fund, which is expected to reach an estimated 15 million Euros per year, has yet to be greenlit by the European Commission.

Addressing a jam-packed audience of high-profile lawmakers, institution execs and other industry figures, Daniela Elstner, president of Paris-based Doc & Film Intl. and Adef (association of French export companies), unveiled a White Paper put together by Adef and explained the key role that sales agents play today in economic and cultural terms.

Claptone Pulls Some Strings With Puppet Theatre

House heads rejoice! Berlin house favorite Claptone has announced his highly anticipated debut album, Charmer, releasing one of its singles a couple months early. The man behind the golden mask has served up “Puppet Theatre,” offering a taste of the soul-tinged house that’s become synonymous with his eccentric stage persona.

The track begins with a dissonant piano melody before the delicate harmonies of vocalists Peter, Bjorn and John kick in, setting a dark ambience. Between contemplative lyrics, rich instrumental samples and minimal synth work, the single maintains a promising degree of crossover potential without being a complete bastardization of proper house music.

What’s more, it makes for a perfect means of promoting Claptone’s first album. With its official release slated for October 16th, Charmer will feature a much broader range of collaborators such as Nathan Nicholson of The Boxer Rebellion, Jimi Tenor, Young Galaxy, Jay-Jay Johanson and

Irrational Man” is Woody Allen’s 47th film as director, an amazing output for an American filmmaker, and unlikely to be duplicated for mainstream releases in the future. He began with “What’s Up, Tiger Lily?” in 1966, won an Oscar for directing Annie Hall (1977) and has written or co-written every screenplay he has ever filmed. “Irrational Man” is another Woody Allen contemplative film, set on a college campus, regarding a philosophy professor (Joaquin Phoenix) who shakes himself out of a case of

Cannes: Distrib Films acquires 'In The Shadow of Women' for Us
Philippe Garrel’s film set to open Directors Fortnight

Distrib Films Us has announced its acquisition of Us rights to Philippe Garrel’s In the Shadow of Women ahead of its premiere as the opening film of Cannes Directors’ Fortnight this week.

The deal was negotiated between François Scippa-Kohn, president of Distrib Films Us, and Carole Baraton and Olivier Barbier of Wild Bunch.

In the Shadow of Women revolves around a low-budget documentary-maker who dumps his mistress after he discovers his long-term partner has a lover too.

Garrel is a Directors’ Fortnight habitué having screened his early film The Virgin’s Bed at the first edition of the then renegade parallel sidebar in 1969.

Distrib Films Us released Garrel’s previous film Jealousy last summer.

“We’re thrilled to continue to bring the films of Philippe Garrel to American audiences,” said Scippa Kohn.
