Bill Paxton’s Childhood Rheumatic Fever Could Have Caused Fatal Heart Damage

3 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Bill Paxton’s death at age 61 on Saturday could be linked to a childhood bout of rheumatic fever. The “Twister” actor, who passed away due to complications from heart surgery, revealed on a podcast earlier this month that he was bedridden for six months after contracting the inflammatory disease when he was 13. “I had been to a hockey game, and I woke up one night and I had a lot of pain in my left wrist,” Paxton told Marc Maron’s “Wtf” podcast on Feb. 6.

Study Ranks American Actors’ British Accents, and Vice Versa

5 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Anyone who’s seen “Mary Poppins” knows what a bad Cockney accent sounds like. But for the first time, British actors have ranked Dick Van Dyke’s “mockney” as the worst attempt at a U.K. accent in a pool of the highest grossing films’ leads.

Language-learning app Babbel commissioned ex-pat professional actors from both the U.K. and U.S. to vote on a five-point scale on how convincing the accents were for leading parts in blockbusters grossing over $100 million.

For the United States accent, American Actors UK awarded British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor a 4.5/5 for his work as Solomon Northup in “12 Years a Slave.” Tied for second are the DC superheros; Christian Bale as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman both garnered 4.2/5 scores.

Best in show for the Americans attempting the over-the-pond accents, awarded by British Actors in La, are Meryl Streep, Gwyneth Paltrow and Renée Zellweger. Streep’s »

Losing a part of my childhood: A Tribute to Bill Paxton

6 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe pays tribute to Bill Paxton, who sadly passed away on Sunday…

The weekend in film was notable for two things. One was the Oscars. All the glitz, glamour and gaffes that came with that. A time of celebration for those fortunate enough to have been nominated in whichever category they were up for and utter delight for the winners (La La Land for about 8 seconds). However, alongside the handing out of the famous golden statue, there was another headline that caught the attention of film-goers around the world and that was the very sad and untimely passing of Bill Paxton.

If you’ve seen your share of films, particularly in the 80’s and 90’s, then chances are you’ve seen Bill Paxton. Predominantly a sturdy support player over the years, he proved reliable throughout a prolific career. To some though he was more than just a face you »

Bill Paxton 1955-2017

9 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Legendary actor Bill Paxton passed away the other day at age 61 due to complications arising from surgery. His career spanned decades, seeing him with parts in The Terminator, Aliens, Twister, and the television shows Big Love and Training Day. Everyone at Lrm wishes to express their condolences to the Paxton family on their loss.

As an actor, what I loved about him was the honesty he brought to his roles. Even if he were only on screen for a couple minutes, you believed he was the whatever character he was portraying on screen. I also loved the sense of wonder you would see in his face. He was a man who loved playing make believe in Hollywood. Some actors take themselves too seriously to really enjoy the fact that they’re experiencing a once in a lifetime opportunity. Bill had a way of making you feel like a kid with how excited he appeared. »

A Group of Storm Chasers Paid Tribute to Twister Actor Bill Paxton in a Beautiful Way

10 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Bill Paxton tragically passed away at age 61 this week due to complications from surgery. The iconic Hollywood actor is known for his role in films like Apollo 13, Titanic, and Twister, and on Sunday, he got a fitting tribute from a group of fans. Bill, who played a former weather researcher and storm chaser in 1996's Twister, was remembered by a group of real-life storm chasers when they lit up Tornado Alley with his initials by coordinating their Gps locations. If you remember the film (honestly, it's a classic, so how could you not?), Bill's character attempts to study the inside structure of a tornado in order to produce a more advanced storm warning system. Wherever Bill is now, we sure he's extremely proud. The storm chaser community around these parts are pretty awesome.

Mindy Newell: Maybe You Haven’t Been Keeping Up, But…”

Bill Maher may be claiming that he’s responsible for kicking Milo Yiannopoulos off of Breitbart and out of the Cpac (Conservative Political Action Conference) convention – or whatever the hell their annual party is called – but the truth is I did it. Yep, those words I “uttered” last week did it. Di pen shist erger fun a fayl, which is the Yiddish way of saying that the pen is mightier than the sword. Okay, for you purists out there, the actual translation is The pen stings worse than an arrow.

Well, Milo might be gone – and don’t let the door hit you on the ass your way out, luzer (Yiddish for “loser) – but the hate just keeps on coming. In a bar in Kansas, a piece of drek (Yiddish for “shit,” and I promise to stop with the Yiddish already) who had been asked to leave for using racial »

Peter Travers on Bill Paxton: A Modest Actor of Immodest Gifts

13 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

I met Bill Paxton in 1995. On a visit to the Rolling Stone offices in midtown Manhattan, he looked in awe at our cover wall, featuring iconic images of rock royalty. An intern, passing by, stopped to stare at him. "Your face looks familiar," she said.

"I've been in a couple of movies," Paxton said, good-naturedly.

The intern wasn't buying it. "Which ones?"

"Apollo 13 ... it just came out, I'm an astronaut in that one."

"Which astronaut?" the youngster prodded, skeptical to the last.

Bill Paxton obituary

13 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Actor known for his roles in Aliens, Titanic, Twister and Apollo 13

Bill Paxton, who has died aged 61 from complications following surgery, was a lively and endearing character actor. Stocky, with a knack for conveying bareknuckle vitality as well as a more considered intelligence and tenderness, he cropped up initially in some of the sparkiest pulp films of the 1980s, including Kathryn Bigelow’s highly original vampire movie Near Dark (1987).

After James Cameron had an unexpected hit with The Terminator (1984), in which Paxton appeared briefly as a blue-haired thug, he took the actor with him on to future projects, casting him as one of a band of rough and ready deep-space marines in Aliens (1986), as a dopey car salesman in True Lies (1994) and as a treasure hunter in the framing story that bookends Titanic (1997). As one of the beleaguered astronauts in Apollo 13 (1995) and the chief tornado-chaser in Twister (1996), Paxton »

She made the right impression, now everybody knows her name.

Leonardo DiCaprio presented the award to the actress.

Critic's Notebook: Bill Paxton Was A Mainstream Team Player With A Wild Cult Side

26 February 2017 4:12 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Long before Apollo 13, Titanic, Twister and Big Love made him into a global screen star, Bill Paxton blew my tiny teenage mind.

Paxton was still an unknown aspiring actor when he directed and starred in a notorious 1980 music video by the eccentric Los Angeles comedy-rock duo Barnes & Barnes, "Fish Heads," a trippy milestone in post-punk surrealism that feels like one of David Lynch's more Wtf epics condensed into five reality-warping minutes. A friend of the band, Paxton succeeded in getting the clip aired on Saturday Night Live, and curious British TV networks picked it up »

The Premiere League Oscar Nominations!

26 February 2017 4:01 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

So, it’s was the Academy Awards yesterday, Hollywood’s biggest night of the year where the stars got themselves dressed up to hit the red carpet, all in honour of the little gold man they call Oscar. It was quite the eventful evening, with Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway accidentally awarding the wrong film with the Best Picture award. Beatty was handed the wrong envelope which gave the award to La La Land, instead of the true winner, Moonlight. It wasn’t their fault, but it really did bring deliver of the most cringeworthy moments ever.

To lighten the mood, the folks over at Enhanced Bets have put together a fun little piece that they hare calling ‘The Premiere League Oscar Nominations,’ a light-hearted look at an alternative set of movie posters where footballers Diego Costa, Ashley Young, and Wilfried Zaha give Oscar nominee Andrew Garfield and Oscar-winner Casey Affleck »
