Michael Pitt set for Martin Scorsese's HBO pilot

30 December 2008 2:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Michael Pitt is in final negotiations to star opposite Steve Buscemi in "Boardwalk Empire," Martin Scorsese's drama pilot for HBO.

Written by Terrence Winter and to be directed by Scorsese, "Empire" is based on Nelson Johnson's book, which chronicles the 1920s origins of Atlantic City, N.J.

The story centers on Nucky Johnson (Buscemi), a cunning businessman who runs a liquor distribution ring at the onset of Prohibition, and Jimmy Darmody (Pitt), a young, highly intelligent and ruthless Wwi veteran, a low-level flunky for Nucky who wants to quickly climb the ladder.

Kelly Macdonald was previously cast in the pilot.

"Empire" is executive produced by Scorsese, Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Winter.

Pitt, who recurred on "Dawson's Creek," has starred in the feature films "The Dreamers," "The Village," "Last Days" and "Funny Games." »

Tom Crews Birthday Celebration for Katie Holmes

19 December 2008 9:02 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Katie Holmes' 30th birthday went bicoastal. The Dawson's Creek hottie celebrated with a performance of her Broadway show, All My Sons, while husband Tom Cruise attended the Los Angeles premiere of Valkyrie. Still, all those miles didn't keep Cruise from surprising his leading lady. When the curtain fell on the performance, costar John Lithgow stepped onstage as crew members rolled out a round, five-tiered cake. He announced to the audience that Cruise was "heartsick" not to be there "but wanted to make his presence felt." Holmes was indeed surprised when she brought daughter Suri onstage with her, along with fellow play mates Dianne Weist and Patrick Wilson, and the audience sang »

Indie Winners: 'Wendy and Lucy'

15 December 2008 11:32 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Whoa! Keanu Reeves may have won the popularity contest with his one-note performance as an alien, but specialty audiences came out in big numbers for a variety of limited releases, according to estimates compiled by Box Office Mojo. In addition to the films mentioned by Eugene in his overall look at the charts -- Gran Torino, Doubt, The Reader, Slumdog Millionaire -- other good performers included Steven Soderbergh's Che and Gus Van Sant's Milk. Che inspired sell-outs at the two theaters where it opened in New York and Los Angeles, despite its four-hour plus running-time. Milk expanded to 328 theaters and had a per-screen average just a little less than The Day the Earth Stood Still.

Amidst that high-powered competition, Kelly Reichardt's Wendy and Lucy more than held its own, earning $10,700 per screen at the two theaters in New York (Film Forum) and Los Angeles (Laemmle Sunset 5) where it opened. »

The Invisible Woman

11 December 2008 12:59 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Michelle Williams has always been a vibrant presence onscreen, be it her six seasons as a tortured teenager on Dawson's Creek or her Oscar-nominated turn as a suffering wife in Brokeback Mountain. But when she accepted the role of Wendy in director Kelly Reichardt's quiet, introspective film Wendy and Lucy, Williams set out to strip herself raw. There is very little dialogue in the movie, and she spends most scenes acting opposite a dog (the Lucy of the title), as Williams portrays a downtrodden woman traveling to Oregon in hope of a new job and a better life. Williams' stark, startling performance has drawn raves since the film premiered at Cannes and recently earned her an Independent Spirit Award nomination, but taking on the ultra-low-budget shoot wasn't a no-brainer for everyone. "It wasn't a hard decision for me at all," she says. "It was just hard to tell my agent. »

Dawson's Creek: Where Are They Now? Back in 1998, a little show premiered on a new network called the WB. The stars were teenagers, but not your average Brady clones. These kids were smart, sassy, and snarky. They knew their film history, they had deeper insights than their parents on most issues of the day, and they talked a-mile-a-minute, in full paragraphs.

Williams Believed She Was 'Invincible'

9 December 2008 10:57 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Michelle Williams did "stupid, crazy things" when she was growing up as an aspiring actress - but the experiences helped her prepare for the future.

Williams was so eager to pursue an acting career she distanced herself from her disapproving parents when she was 15 and left school in California shortly afterwards.

She shot to fame in 1998 when she appeared in hit teen show Dawson's Creek and her fame was further propelled by her role in 2005's Brokeback Mountain, for which she received an Academy Award nomination.

And now, aged 28, the actress can see she took a huge risk by branching out by herself to try to carve a career in Hollywood.

She tells Parade.com, "Hindsight. Isn't it great? The risks of going into L.A. at such an early age are huge.

"At the time, I was invincible. I thought I was on top of the world. I didn't realise what I was doing. But I wouldn't trade any of those experiences for anything in the world. I am who I am because of them."

She adds, "I had a lot of growing up to do and it was slammed into a couple of short years. I did stupid, crazy things. But those stupid crazy things prepared me to deal with future." »

Williams: 'Fame Is Tiring'

9 December 2008 8:13 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Michelle Williams has branded her stardom "wearing" - because she is sick of wondering if photographers are lurking wherever she goes.

The Dawson's Creek star, whose ex-boyfriend Heath Ledger died of an accidental drug overdose in January, is frequently followed by snappers eager to get a picture of her with daughter Matilda.

And Williams, who recently fired back at the paparazzi for hounding her in the wake of Ledger's death, would love to go about her everyday life undetected by cameras.

She tells Parade.com, "I do sometimes wish that I could live with less attention but not being totally ignored by the world. It's very wearing to be a celebrity.

"I wonder if people are going to follow me or if someone is going to pop out of nowhere with a camera. I get very angry but I'm trying not to let it stop me from living."

And the star admits she finds it hard to brush off the press - because she is too polite to stand her ground.

She adds: "You're sort of straddling that fine line between being kind and courteous and everything that your mother raised you to be to strangers that come up and refuse to respect your privacy." »

Tom Cruise Bought Katie Holmes An Engagement Ring Right After Their First Date

5 December 2008 12:42 AM, PST | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Tom Cruise bought wife Katie Holmes an engagement ring after their first date. The "Valkyrie" actor - who has a two-year-old daughter Suri with Katie - knew after their first meeting in 2005 he wanted to spend the rest of his life with the "Dawson's Creek" star.

He said: "I knew I wanted to marry Kate when I met her. When she told me she had dreamed of marrying me as a little girl, I said I wouldn't want to disappoint her. At one point, I thought she was going to ask me to marry her first and I put her off by changing the subject. I wanted to ask her."

In a separate interview, which also appears in T: The New York Times Style Magazine alongside Tom's, Katie revealed she feels more fulfilled since meeting 46-year-old Tom.

She said: "When I met Tom I was completely in love and, yes, »

Michelle Williams in Wendy and Lucy

Photo: Oscilloscope Pictures Wendy and Lucy plays like an 80-minute deleted scene from Into the Wild as we meet Wendy Carroll (Michelle Williams) and her Golden Labrador, Lucy, in the midst of a cross-country journey. Wendy is heading toward Alaska and her home is her car; how she got into this predicament we never find out. Directed by Kelly Reichardt the film has a curious pace to it and Williams takes an eerily calm approach to Wendy that would have an outsider believe she is in control of her situation just as she is spiraling further and further downward. Hints of Wendy's origins are revealed when she calls her brother-in-law back in Indiana and has a brief conversation with him coupled with an accusatory moment with her sister. Wendy's car has broken down and she and Lucy are stranded in a small Oregon town. »

Michelle Williams Finds It Hard To Cope With Heath Ledger's Death

23 November 2008 10:50 PM, PST | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Michelle Williams says things are "getting worse" following the death of her former fiance Heath Ledger in January. The 28-year-old star - who has a three-year-old daughter Matilda from her relationship with Heath - is finding it increasingly harder to cope because she misses the actor so much.

She said: "I just wake up each day in a slightly different place - grief is like a moving river, so that's what I mean by 'it's always changing.' It's a strange thing to say because I'm at heart an optimistic person, but I would say in some ways it just gets worse."

"It's just that the more time that passes, the more you miss someone. In some ways it gets worse. That's what I would say."

The former "Dawson's Creek" star also blasted paparazzi photographers for infringing on her and Matilda's privacy, adding she is considering giving up acting unless the situation improves. »

Here's more: On having her personal life so exposed: "It's such a funny line to walk as an actor," Williams says.

16 October 2008 12:00 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Former Dawson's Creek star James Van Der Beek is returning to his TV roots with an appearance on One Tree Hill.

The actor will play a director looking to turn a book by Chad Michael Murray's character Lucas into a movie.

But the guest appearance will be an emotional one for Van Der Beek - teen drama One Tree Hill is filmed on the same Wilmington, North Carolina set where Dawson's Creek was shot between 1998 and 2003.

Executive producer Mark Schwann says, "The spectre of Dawson's Creek is always around us. We're about to complete 128 episodes, which is what Dawson's did...So I thought it would be cool to get James."

The episode is due to air in the U.S. in late November. »

ABC Picks Up More 'Eli Stone'

15 October 2008 6:18 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

It's a good year for Marc Guggenheim. He's got a brand new comic series at Marvel with Young X-Men and he's one of three co-writers for the upcoming Green Lantern film at Warner Bros. Now comes word from The Hollywood Reporter that television series Eli Stone, which Guggenheim executive produces, is getting four extra scripts.

Stone, on its second season, received the order on the evening before its premiere on Tuesday night. The trade indicates that such a move shows confidence in the season's new creative direction. We Alias fans know better: Victor Garber likely held the studio at gunpoint and forced the pick up. Gotta love Jack Bristow.

"It's an incredible vote of confidence," Guggenheim tells Ew.com. "I had told [ABC] that in order to keep production rolling [beyong Eli's initial 13-episode order], I would need to know by Wednesday [if they wanted more]. I figured at the very least that would give them a day's worth of ratings to analyze. »
