This week: Miranda Richardson
Take One: Collateral marriage damage
If you want nearly two hours of Jeremy Irons and Juliette Binoche miserably humping each other in dull, anonymous locations (all frightfully well lit of course) then Damage is good to go. Louis Malle's, and scriptwriter David Hare's, adaptation of Josephine Hart's novel, about a member of Parliament's affair with his son's girlfriend, is rather too inert and tasteful for its own good, and was only partially praised but largely ignored perhaps for those reasons. Many liked it, but many more had issues with it (or so I've read). I had a hard time remembering much about the film, save for the sullen, cheerless sex scenes mentioned above... and one other aspect: Miranda Richardson, playing Irons' character's dutiful wife. Gosh, I love me some Binoche, but good grief Richardson owned this one. »

World Cup competition kicks off in South Africa today as the host nation takes on Mexico and France battles Uruguay. Meanwhile in the heart of New York City, the MTV Movies Team faces off against decades worth of cinematic offerings in a simple quest: to locate — and celebrate! — our favorite fictional soccer players and coaches of all-time. As the Cup begins, here are our picks for the movie ballers we want on our team.
Here's the thing about this movie: it's actually not terrible. Shift aside those ham-handed allusions to Shakespearean drama and the rather grating presence of Channing Tatum as soccer badass Duke Orsino, and what you've got is Bynes at her goofball best. She's a wiz with physical comedy and her character is perhaps the only third wave feminist ever to take the pitch on-screen. Plus we'd pick her for our World »

The Lost series finale was certainly a big television event. The highly anticipated conclusion to the popular series aired as an epic two & a half hour TV movie, surrounded by massive media buzz and considerable viewer expectation. The question on everyone’s mind as we all counted down to the big moment was, will fans be satisfied with the solution to the convoluted six year mystery? Can Lost deliver the goods or will the finale leave fans wondering why they wasted their time for six years?
People love puzzles. There’s a satisfaction in seeing all those scattered little pieces finally fit together so we can see the big picture. The creators of Lost understood that better than anyone. Those clever fellows gambled on the fact that people would be so drawn into Lost’s web of mystery that they would return week after week to watch a show where »

Episode Title: "Everybody Loves Hugo"
Story: All eyes are on former lottery winner Hurley (Jorge Garcia) when it comes time to leave the crash site of Oceanic 815 and figure out the next move — especially in light of one particular castaway's explosive disposition. But Hurley's decisions aren't universally embraced, leading to a schism within Team Jacob that puts Hugo and his followers on a potentially deadly path.
In the Sideways Reality, the uncharacteristically lucky Hurley agrees to go on a blind date, and his romantic chemistry with a mysterious pursuer attracts the attention of a recently awakened Desmond Hume (Henry Ian Cusick) — and Desmond himself has made some surprising maneuvers since putting his hands on the wheel of destiny.

Harold Perrineau has confirmed that his Lost character is dead throughout season six. Speaking to TV Guide, the 46-year-old actor said that his character Michael will not appear off the island.

Perrineau also dismissed rumours that Michael would be returning as an incarnation of the Smoke Monster, maintaining: "I'm totally the ghost of Michael." He added that fans should thank his alter (more) »

Grayson's longtime companion and secretary, Sally Sherman, said Thursday that the actress died of natural causes.
Grayson also was professionally linked with Howard Keel, with whom she co-starred in three movies. With him, Grayson sang and acted as the riverboat belle Magnolia in "Show Boat" (1951); as a Parisian dress shop owner in "Lovely to Look At" (1952) -- in which she sang Jerome Kern's "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" -- and as a high-strung actress in "Kiss Me Kate" (1953).
Later in their careers, Grayson and Keel performed together in nightclubs -- she was a coloratura soprano, he was a baritone -- and toured in summer stock.
Born as Zelma Kathryn Elisabeth Hedrick on Feb. 9, 1922, in Winston-Salem, N.C., she »

Coming Soon, who clearly keep an eye on the Oriental Morning Post, are reporting that Hugh Jackman has signed on to join Wayne Wang's Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. The film was set to co-star Zhang Ziyi, but she's now reportedly been replaced by The Forbidden Kingdom's Li Bingbing.The film is based on a novel by Lisa See, centring on the old Chinese tradition of laotongs, or "old sames": girls who are paired together as lifelong friends at an early age. The nineteenth-century saga follows Snow Flower and Lily through years of famine, political unrest and the Taiping revolution, arranged marriages and footbinding, until the dire consequences of a terrible betrayal.Wayne Wang will forever be cool for his 1990s Paul Auster collaborations Smoke and Blue in the Face although our faith was slightly shaken when he brought us Maid in Manhattan.

On "Lost," death is about as common as the cold. It drifts in and out just like a sickness, sometimes with warning but often without any signs at all, and almost always claiming its victims with ruthless efficiency. Whether the dead party is a beloved or loathed character, one thing remains true throughout — the death scenes of "Lost" are almost always epic and inventive.
After the jump, we've listed 23 dead characters who should return for the final season of "Lost."
Stay tuned to MTV next week for the final installments of Lost In Numbers, a series of features pegged directly to the show's trademark number sequence: 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42. Needless to say, spoilers for season five and earlier lie ahead. And make sure to tune in to MTV Movies Blog next Tuesday for our live blog of the season premiere!
