John C. McGinley joins James Gunn’s latest project The Belko Experiment

21 May 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following on from the casting of John Gallagher Jr. (The Newsroom, Short Term 12), James Gunn has taken to Facebook to announce that John C. McGinley (Office Space, Scrubs) has signed on for a role in his latest project The Belko Experiment.

“John will play Wendell Dukes, one of the top execs at Belko, and longtime friends with Tony Goldwyn’s character, Barry Norris,” states Gunn. “Wendell is a bit socially awkward, and has never been at home with the other employees at Belko… I’m not sure his social problems will be eased much when mysterious forces start compelling them to kill one another or be killed.”

Gunn has written the script for The Belko Experiment and is also producing, with Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) directing. The film tells the story of an American company in South America which a company who seals off its building and orders its »

‘Scrubs’ Alum John C. McGinley Joins James Gunn’s ‘Belko Experiment’

21 May 2015 11:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

John C. McGinley has joined the cast of “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn’s new horror film, “The Belko Experiment.”

Gunn made the announcement Thursday on his Facebook page. He also revealed castings this week of “Fruitvale Station’s” Melonie Diaz, “The Newsroom” star John Gallagher Jr. and “Scandal” president Tony Goldwyn.

“When I think of John, I often think of Bob Slydell from ‘Office Space,'” Gunn said. “Fortunately, in that film, the characters only had to murder each other spiritually, and not physically, as they do in ‘Belko.’ John may be most recognized from ‘Scrubs,’ but he’s an eerily dexterous actor who can do almost anything and has shone in any role he’s been given. He most recently got rave reviews for his performance in ‘Glengarry Glen Ross’ on Broadway with Al Pacino and Bobby Cannavale.”

McGinley will play a socially awkward top exec at Belko, »

The Young Pope

Jude Law is set to star in Italian director Paolo Sorrentino's TV series "The Young Pope" at HBO, Sky and Canal Plus. The story deals with an imaginary conservative American pontiff who is the first Italian-American pope in history and has been recruited by a Vatican fed up with liberals. Trouble is, they're not ready for how hard-line he is.

Production on the eight-episode series is set to begin this summer with filming to take place predominantly in Italy with additional locations in the United States, Africa and Puerto Rico. Sorrentino will helm all eight episodes and penned the scripts with the help of Tony Grisoni, Umberto Contarello and Stefano Rulli. [Source: Variety]

Every Best Picture Oscar Winner, Ranked From Worst to Best

6 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This week marks the 10th anniversary of the release of "Crash" (on May 6, 2005), an all-star movie whose controversy came not from its provocative treatment of racial issues but from its Best Picture Oscar victory a few months later, against what many critics felt was a much more deserving movie, "Brokeback Mountain."

The "Crash" vs. "Brokeback" battle is one of those lingering disputes that makes the Academy Awards so fascinating, year after year. Moviegoers and critics who revisit older movies are constantly judging the Academy's judgment. Even decades of hindsight may not always be enough to tell whether the Oscar voters of a particular year got it right or wrong. Whether it's "Birdman" vs. "Boyhood," "The King's Speech" vs. "The Social Network," "Saving Private Ryan" vs. "Shakespeare in Love" or even "An American in Paris" vs. "A Streetcar Named Desire," we're still confirming the Academy's taste or dismissing it as hopelessly off-base years later. »

The hilarious and bizarre dimensions of 'Veep' star Gary Cole

4 May 2015 4:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Gary Cole, who currently stars on "Veep" as Selina Meyer's senior strategist Kent Davidson, is -- for those who've been keeping track -- one of the most eclectic and slyly kooky performers alive. The 58-year-old actor netted his first major nomination last year (an Emmy nod for guest-acting on "Veep"), but his career has been a long, ascending spiral of dead-eyed caricatures and commanding dramatic roles. His august screen presence suggests a comfort playing white-collar blowhards, but that's the magic of Gary Cole: He's absolutely comfortable playing anything. That's pretty astounding when you realize he's played everything. Interviews with Cole, including ours from 2014's PaleyFest below, reveal that he's not a Crispin Glover type who's as unnerving (and nervous-making) as many of his signature roles. In fact, he kind of seems like a milder version of Kent. Perhaps it's his education at Illinois State University alongside fellow thespian veterans »

Why 1999 was the best year in movie history

30 April 2015 8:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century? Check here for a complete list of our essays. The end of the 1990s was the end of an era on the big screen. The independent filmmaking movement that started the decade had taken full bloom and infiltrated the business. Major studios had begun to jump headlong into the "dependent" game, amping up prestige product and utilizing the awards season as a marketing tool. The blockbuster landscape at the summer multiplex had been interesting, full of original concepts (good and bad), but something else was on the way — a new overlord in the business of film, and one that would more or less make the age of the movie star (at least as we had come to know it) a thing of the past. For those reasons and a slew of others, »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

Press Release -- "An Office Space meets Shaun of the Dead action-packed horror comedy, Bloodsucking Bastards stars Fran Kranz as Evan Sanders, a low-level, dutiful employee stuck in a boring job at a soul-killing every corporation. Evan’s the kind of guy who does all the work and gets none of the credit, but at least he gets to spend his days with his beautiful co-worker/girlfriend Amanda (Emma Fitzpatrick) and his slacker best friend Tim (Joey Kern).

Unfortunately, it all falls apart in one fell swoop when Amanda breaks up with him and Evan’s boss Ted (Joel Murray) hands »

Lone Star Cinema: Fort Bliss

15 April 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

It's nonsensical that actress Michelle Monaghan isn't a bigger name in Hollywood. She is an excellent foil to Robert Downey Jr. in cult dark comedy Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and inspires Jake Gyllenhaal in Source Code. She was even in the lauded first season of True Detective (which I didn't watch). Fort Bliss, a film written and directed by Claudia Myers, is a special treat for Monaghan fans. Instead of supporting an A-list actor onscreen, Monaghan gets her chance to lead a film.

She plays Staff Sgt. Maggie Swann, recently returned from service in Afghanistan. Maggie is an army medic, quick to respond to injuries in the field, yet thrown by the changes that have occurred while she's been abroad. Her young son Paul (Oakes Fegley, This Is Where I Leave You) has lived with Maggie's ex-husband Richard (Ron Livingston, Office Space) and grown extremely close to Richard's new wife Alma (Emmanuelle Chriqui, »

‘Get Hard’ stays surprisingly flaccid

26 March 2015 4:02 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Get Hard

Written by Jay Martel, Ian Roberts & Etan Cohen

Directed by Etan Cohen

USA, 2015

Get Hard is an episodic comedy that seems determined to botch its ‘can’t miss’ premise. No amount of riffing from Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart can overcome a script that’s obviously cobbled together from multiple projects. Director Etan Cohen’s feature-length debut lacks the big-ticket gags to overcome its flawed execution. Ultimately, this is a ‘star vehicle’ that should have stayed in the driveway.

There are three films battling for the soul of Get Hard. The first has a Trading Places vibe. We get the typical class warfare sequences, such as the obnoxious millionaire snob (Farrell) being terrified of minorities or flashing his wiener at house staff like it’s their duty to admire it. Nothing new to see here, but Farrell makes it (almost) work with his inherent likeability.

DVD Review – Silicon Valley: The Complete First Season

25 March 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen reviews Silicon Valley: The Complete First Season…

In the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success. A comedy partially inspired by Mike Judge’s own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the late 1980s.

Remember those kids in school? The ones who were glued to computer screens instead of playing football with the “cool” kids? Of course you do. They were usually picked on, beaten up, bullied to the point of being afraid to leave their bedroom. Perhaps you were one of them. Perhaps you were one of the kids who kicked their heads in during lunch. Well, those nerdy computer kids now rule the world. Silicon Valley is about those kids. And it’s brilliantly funny.

Like The Big Bang Theory for grown-ups, Silicon Valley: The Complete First Season focuses on »

How Has This Office Space Sketch With the Real Michael Bolton Not Happened Sooner?

10 March 2015 7:45 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

One of the biggest jokes in 1999's Office Space is that a main character's name is Michael Bolton. Of course, there was nothing wrong with the name when his parents chose it; it was just years later that another Michael Bolton became a pop icon and the name became forever ridiculous. That Michael Bolton, the one who so beautifully sings "When a Man Loves a Woman," is now in a Funny or Die sketch remaking some memorable scenes from the film. It's kind of creepy how spot-on his impression is of the character, originally played by David Herman. Check it out, and watch until the end for maximum fax machine destruction.
