Watch Tom Hanks's Forrest Gump audition and more pre-fame A-listers

5 August 2014 6:59 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Forrest Gump first arrived in cinemas two decades ago, cementing Tom Hanks as an A-list movie star, winning a host of Oscars and spawning iconic quotes such as: "Life is like a box of chocolates..." You never know what you're going to get when perusing YouTube, and today's discovery just happens to be Hanks's original filmed audition for Robert Zemeckis.

We get to see Hanks alongside co-stars Robin Wright and Haley Joel Osment, but curiously missing is the Southern drawl we've come to love from the character. In the audition he's more Hanksy than Gumpy, but the character's naive charm is still evident.

Hanks's Gump screen test comes courtesy of YouTube user Regal Reels, who also have a host of other famous faces on taped auditions from the archives. »

First Stills Of Amy Adams As Margaret Keane In Tim Burton’s ‘Big Eyes’

4 August 2014 3:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’m looking forward to this and not just for the masterful Amy Adams but also because we’ll see Tim Burton move over to more ‘traditional’ cinema roots to tell the real-life story of painter Margaret Keane in Big Eyes.

Keane had huge success in the 1950s with her work but in the 1960s her husband, Walter Keane, took credit for her paintings and they then hit immensely difficult times with legal battles that would effect them both in every possible human way. In Tim Burton’s film, Margaret is portrayed by Amy Adams (already rumoured to give another amazing performance), alongside Christoph Waltz playing Walter, the man who tries to take away her talent and we all know he can play calm-to-crazy extremely well.

We also know what Burton can do and I hope, and always believe, that this move away from the more obscure might be a »

Film Review: ‘Paradiso’

31 July 2014 5:55 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A superb sense of space and a respectful appreciation for incongruity are major selling points for “Paradiso,” Omar A. Razzak’s low-budget docu about Madrid’s last porn cinema. It’s rare enough to find such a leftover in the Internet age, yet even more unusual is the manager at the Sala X Duque de Alba, a guy who decorates the lobby with auteurist posters and buys ties for his regulars at Christmas. Having earned the trust of his subjects, Razzak sets up his observational camera to favor off-center (in many ways) framings, creating a winning if slight crowdpleaser for Hispanophone showcases.

It takes some time to work out what kinds of movies are being shown at the Duque de Alba, since the camera never enters the screening room. From the lobby, decorated with posters for films like “Slumdog Millionaire,” “All About My Mother” and “Man on the Moon,” audiences »

Courtney Love joins Sons Of Anarchy season 7

8 July 2014 11:28 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Courtney Love is to play a nursery school teacher in the seventh season of Sons Of Anarchy...

News

Sons Of Anarchy has once again stuck a casting pin into its back issues of Kerrang! to come up with another celebrity from the world of Us rock to join the series.

Following in the footsteps of Henry Rollins, Dave Navarro and the recently announced Marilyn Manson, is Hole's Courtney Love, who will appear in season seven in the recurring role of a preschool teacher. Specifically, Love will be playing the "straight-shooting" preschool teacher of Jax's eldest son, Abel.

While the role marks Love's TV drama debut, the singer had a brief flurry of film roles in the nineties, including acclaimed parts in Milos Forman's The People Vs. Larry Flynt and Man On The Moon.

Sons Of Anarchy's seventh season is expected to be its last, according to creator Kurt Sutter. »

Courtney Love Heads To Charming For Sons Of Anarchy’s Final Season

8 July 2014 7:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Yes, you read that right, and no, it’s not April Fool’s Day. FX has just cast Courtney Love in a multi-episode arc on the final season of its hit motorcycle drama, Sons of Anarchy.

Love will be playing Ms. Harrison, the pre-school teacher of Jax’s (Charlie Hunnam) son, Abel. Her character will take a special interest in Abel, who will probably be in serious need of some extra love and care after Tara’s (Maggie Siff) death. Abel’s biological mother, Wendy (Drea de Matteo), will presumably be back in the picture and may not be interested in competing with another female for her son’s attention.

Although Love has been in the news more for her shocking life choices than anything else over the years, the former “Hole” front-woman isn’t new to acting. She starred in Man on the Moon opposite Jim Carrey and earned »

Courtney Love Joins 'Sons of Anarchy': 5 Reasons Why This Is Great News

8 July 2014 5:54 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Live Through This: Courtney Love has joined "Sons of Anarchy" Season 7. Her countless personal foibles aside, ever since my first exposure to Hole's landmark 1994 album I've been a fierce advocate of C-Love - for my money one of the most mercurially captivating performers of this or any age. As a matter of fact, she was recently featured in HitFix's "Career Comebacks We're Dying To See" gallery - a fortuitous pick on my part considering she's now set to enjoy a "pivotal, multi-episode arc" on the long-running FX series as - get this - a "straight-shooting preschool teacher." Oh god, yes. But of course, I get it: the majority of our readers probably won't count C-Love's "SoA" casting as good news (just waiting for the shameless "She Killed Kurt" believers to come out of the woodwork). But hey, Dave Grohl forgave her, so why can't the rest of you? Here »

Courtney Love Joins ‘Sons of Anarchy’ for Final Season

8 July 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” continues its casting for its final season with Courtney Love on board, Variety has confirmed.

The rocker will join the show for a multi-episode arc as Ms. Harrison—the pre-school teacher of Jax’s (Charlie Hunnam) eldest son Abel.

Her character plays a pivotal role as she takes a special interest in Abel, which will most likely catch the attention of Abel’s mother, series regular Drea de Matteo.

This will be Love’s TV drama debut. The Hole frontwoman has starred opposite Jim Carrey in “Man on the Moon” and has been nominated  for a Golden Globe for “The People vs. Larry Flynt.”

Love is the second rock icon to join the show’s seventh and final season — Marilyn Manson has been cast in a recurring role as a white supremacist. It’s also been announced that “Justified’s” Walton Goggins will return to »

Courtney Love Joins 'Sons of Anarchy' For Its Final Season

8 July 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Another musician is joining the final season of "Sons of Anarchy": Courtney Love is set for a multi-episode arc on the FX biker series.

TVLine reports that "Love will play Ms. Harrison, the straight-shooting preschool teacher of Jax's [Charlie Hunnam] eldest son, Abel. Look for Love's educator to take a special interest in Abel -- which will likely spark an interesting reaction from the boy's mother Wendy (newly-minted series regular Drea de Matteo)."

Love joins shock rocker Marilyn Manson as the latest high-profile guest star with musical roots to sign on for the final season of the show. Manson is set to play a white supremacist and prison power player who deals with Jax.

Love's stint on "Sons" will mark her TV drama debut, though this isn't the singer's first foray into acting. She previously had well-regarded turns in 1999's "Man on the Moon" and 1996's "The People vs. Larry Flynt, »

The underappreciated film performances of Jim Carrey

15 June 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With a potential comeback on the cards for Jim Carrey, Rob looks through the hidden gems of his career.

Feature

Alrighty then. To get straight to the point – Jim Carrey’s career hasn’t been up to much lately has it? Certainly as leading man, at least. His last big-hitter was 2009’s A Christmas Carol, while his most recent leading role was 2011’s Mr Popper’s Penguins.

His latest performance outside of cameos was an interesting part in Kick Ass 2 though, a promising turn which left many audience-members wanting more from his character. With the trailer dropping recently for Dumb And Dumber To as well, the hints of a comeback for the iconic performer have continued to grow.

There’s been more positivity towards Dumb And Dumber To in comments than we might have expected (although this welcoming response was far from unanimous), which is undeniably a positive sign for the fledgling star. »

Thoughts on 'The Matrix' 15 years later and 1999 as a great year for movies

31 March 2014 3:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On March 31, 1999, Andy and Lana (née Larry) Wachowski's "The Matrix" hit theaters. That's 15 years ago today, and it was a pretty significant event. I think anyone who has read me for any period of time knows my affinity for and fascination with 1999 as an overall annus mirabilis at the multiplex. I've gone so far as to start the process of reporting a book because I can never quite shake how that year just seems to mean something. On one hand, it's personal. It was my first year of film school and going to a double feature of "American Beauty" and "Three Kings" with some fellow classmates one night, that kind of power punch will do a lot to galvanize someone in the early stages of embarking on a career in film. But it was an objectively amazing time. First and foremost, let's pause and consider that for a brief period, »

10 Actors Who Transitioned From Comedy Stars To Dramatic Darlings

14 March 2014 4:14 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lionsgate Pictures

At the 2007 Oscars, Will Ferrell and Jack Black performed a funny song about how comedians always miss out on the prizes at awards season.

And, well, they had a point.

Except for those awards that have special categories for comedy/musical performances, like the Golden Globes or MTV Movie Awards (which also has one for Best Fight), even the most popular, highest grossing comic actors can find their Wikipedia awards and nominations pages looking a little empty.

Over the last 10 years, for example, the best actor and actress Oscars have gone to actors in dramatic or, at a push, comic-dramatic roles every time – except for 2011, when Jean Dujardin managed to buck two trends at once with a winning performance in silent romantic-comedy The Artist. No words and comedy. Nice one Jean.

But you don’t have to wait around for a decade to get lucky. As John C. Reilly »

Throw out the Clowns – A tale of unrequited love between Comedy and The Academy Awards.

25 February 2014 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It started so well; two of Hollywood’s hottest properties making self-deprecating jokes about how they were the perfect age to snare a younger demographic of viewer for a ceremony which had been shedding ratings faster than it added minutes to its running time. For Anne Hathaway and James Franco, that would be as good as it got, the remainder of their hosting duties for the 83rd Academy Awards was made up of unintelligible ramblings and a Western’s worth of tumbleweeds.

They weren’t really to blame, well Hathaway anyway, because this had been one of the few times that the Academy had opted for a non-comedian occupying the Kodak Theatre stage. There was 2009’s soft-focus Hugh Jackman sing-along, and in 1995 David Letterman gave us the cringe-worthy “Oprah. Uma. Uma. Oprah” moment of infamy. Both examples underline that the appeal of the host, and by proxy their laugh quota, »

We Can't Wait #10: Big Eyes

26 January 2014 11:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

[Editor's Note: We Can't Wait is a Team Experience series, in which we highlight our top 14 most anticipated films of 2014. Here's Julien Kojfer on "Big Eyes"]

Big Eyes

A drama centered on 50’s painter Margaret Keane, whose husband claimed credit for her works after she achieved phenomenal success.

Talent

Tim Burton is directing a starry cast including Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Jason Schwartzman, Krysten Ritter, Terence Stamp and Danny Husto. 

Why We Can't Wait

Sure, the perpetually disheveled auteur famously lost his mojo at the turn of the century, when his unique style suddenly froze into a soulless brand of manufactured gothic whimsy, and his name sadly became synonymous with lazy adaptations, predictably misshapen aesthetics, and the obligatory casting of Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter in cadaverous makeup and improbable wigs.

Which is precisely why no one who’s ever loved Burton could fail to be excited by Big Eyes, because it doesn’t sound like anything he’s made since the 90’s. An adult drama free of fantasy elements with a female protagonist, starring »

Shia Labeouf -- who is 'Not Famous Anymore' -- fires back at Jim Carrey, quickly recants

The tags on this post are not entirely accurate; Shia Labeouf and Jim Carrey aren’t exactly in a celebrity feud. Why? Because in order to be in a celebrity feud, one must be a celebrity. And Shia wants you to know that he is no longer one of those:

I Am Not Famous Anymore— Shia Labeouf (@thecampaignbook) January 13, 2014

Reeaally embracing that retirement “from all public life,” Shia.
