By his own admission, Jay Baruchel is the least well-known of the six main stars in This Is The End. He’s been acting for decades, appearing in Oscar-winning films from Almost Famous to Million Dollar Baby and blockbusters like How To Train Your Dragon and Tropic Thunder. Yet, when compared to some of his co-stars, he simply isn’t [...] »

June 12 marks the 15th anniversary of the release of "Can't Hardly Wait."
The famed high school movie told the story of a group of students celebrating their last day of classes, complete with yearbook signing, underage drinking, and one wannabe-gangster hellbent on losing his virginity. In celebration of the anniversary of "Can't Hardly Wait," we've compiled 13 lessons on losing your virginity from films.
"Can't Hardly Wait": The best way to convince someone to have sex with you is to get locked in a bathroom with them.
"The Graduate": Don't have sex with your parents' friend.
"American Beauty": Don't have sex with your friend's dad.
"Almost Famous": Do go to Greenville if you want to lose your virginity.
"Fast Times at Ridgemont High": If it happens in a baseball dugout covered in graffiti, he may not call again.
"Liberal Arts": Pick the right time to »

Braff launched the project in April on Kickstarter, and after completing its goal within a matter of days, it was fully funded at just over $3m. at the end of last month.
With much of the leading cast already set, Braff has begun meeting with people to work on the other side of the camera alongside him, and after sitting down with Betsy Heimann, he’s announced that she’s officially on board to be the costume designer for Wish I Was Here.
Heimann’s career spans across three decades, and she has worked on some of the most memorable and acclaimed films over the years, including (but certainly not limited to) Reservoir Dogs, Jerry Maguire, Almost Famous, Vanilla Sky, Art School Confidential, Funny People, and what Braff notes is his personal favourite, »

Greetings from the apocalypse! Along with my trusty dog, I'm currently gunning the last of the V8 Interceptors towards a fortified gasoline refuge in the middle of the Australian outback. While I'm thus occupied, why don't you innocent clanspeople of Tomorrow-morrow Land check out some of this weekend's most fruitful distractions … unless you're chained to a car with handcuffs made out of high-tensile steel. Man, I've been there …

New On Blu
Oh man, oh man, oh man … The 'Mad Max' Collection on Blu-ray! It's all three of the most-worshipped post-apocalyptic vehicular mayhem movies ever burned onto celluloid, including for the first time on Blu-ray the amazingly bizarre "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome." Unfortunately there's not much in the way of new bonus content on any of these, but the prints are all glorious — especially "Thunderdome," which looks like a brand-new movie. There's a great doc on the first "Mad Max, »

A couple months ago I wrote an article about some very famous bands that became very famous under false pretenses. The reaction was mostly positive and there were a few comments on other famous bands/musicians that I missed in my original list.
So, with the minimal amount of research that kept me interested enough to avoid other responsibilities, I decided to go back and do this 2nd row group of famous non-bands. While there have been a lot of ‘fake’ bands created in the interest of selling records, promoting movies and tv shows (there ain’t no party like an S Club party), I decided only to focus on bands that well, honestly, are ones that actually had some success in selling records and most importantly were sold to it’s audiences under false pretenses, unlike something like S Club 7, which sadly was what it was.

Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman is already back to work after revealing that he admitted himself into a detox facility for a substance abuse problem that included both prescription pills and, most recently, heroin.
A source confirms to Et that Hoffman, known for his roles in Capote, The Master and Almost Famous, struggled with drug abuse 23 years ago, but after relapsing over a year ago, checked himself into a 10-day detox program on the East Coast. The 45-year-old actor claims his heroin use only lasted a week, and credits a "great group of friends and family" for getting him the help he needed.

The source also confirms to Et that Hoffman is already back on set, and shooting a movie in Europe. »
After honouring his mother with Almost Famous, director Cameron Crowe turns his attention to his father in this gentle romantic comedy. Orlando Bloom plays the shoe designer whose heart is saved by perky flight attendant Kirsten Dunst. The man who melted hearts with Jerry Maguire and Say Anything neatly succeeds in capturing the often embarrassing moments that makes families tick. »
Zach Braff's Kickstarter film project Wish I Was Here is moving full steam ahead, and Kate Hudson has been cast as the female lead. Hudson's career took off when she played Penny in Almost Famous. After that breakout role, she started making a bunch of crappy rom-coms, and a few other films that ended up not being so good. In my opinion, she hasn't made a decent film since Almost Famous. Maybe that will change with this one. I know she's a talented actress. She just doesn't seem to pick the best projects. Anna Kendrick has also been cast in the film.
The story follows Aidan Bloom (Braff), "a struggling actor, father and husband who is still trying to find his identity and purpose at age 35." According to the report, "Hudson will play Braff's wife and the mother of his two children."
The film also stars Mandy Patinkin as Braff's father, »

Braff launched his independent film on Kickstarter, and as you can imagine, it didn’t take long for the film to reach its $2m. goal. The multi-hyphenate has already proven himself an incredibly talented director with his directorial debut, Garden State. And I think that’s one of the main reasons why people have been so willing to pledge their money to support a long-awaited sophomore feature.
And now Braff has announced that he has found his leading lady in Kate Hudson.
Braff also confirms, as we previously expected from his announcement video, that Jim Parsons »

Brogan Morris on his favourite movie soundtrack....
Picking a best of anything always causes me more anxiety than it should – it’s my personal favourite of something, and so what? Every film fan’s got one. But it feels like ‘favourite movie soundtrack’ is one I have to get absolutely right.
There are so, so many; Almost Famous appeals to the long-hair within me, nostalgic for the 70s (a decade I never actually saw) and its rock decadence; Marie Antoinette speaks to the sulky little indie kid side of me, complete as Sofia Coppola’s picture is with juicy new wave and post-punk tunes; and there’s always O Brother, Where Art Thou?, the country ‘n’ bluegrass on that being damn near perfect. Then I remember Quentin Tarantino, and I go tumbling down a rabbit hole after seven films (not Death Proof) with wonderfully eclectic soundtracks.
Goodfellas tops all of them, »

Almost Famous star Kate Hudson almost got swept away! During a photo shoot in Beverly Hills last Friday, the 34-year-old had quite the hair-raising experience when a gust of wind blew into the picture. But clearly the blond beauty found the humor in it. Decked out in a pretty plum coat, the Oscar-nominated actress easily managed to maintain her killer grin. But Hudson's not the first star whose locks have gotten such a lift. Check out these other celebs who've been caught in the wind! »
Though better associated for her feature roles, Kate Hudson's recent credits include a recurring role on Fox's musical dramedy Glee. But it looks like she'll be headed back to the big screen as the Almost Famous star has been cast to play Zach Braff's wife in Wish I Was Here, the film which earned itself a green light through a successful Kickstarter campaign. Braff's planned film centers on Aidan, a married man, father of two and struggling actor, who passes the time daydreaming about being a futuristic Space-Knight. As money is tight, he and his wife have to pull their kids out of private school. Aidan decides to home school them, which leads to some interesting and imaginative life lessons, from the sound of it. Via Variety, Braff announced the latest bit of casting news today, stating that Kate Hudson will play the role of Sarah, his character's »
Writer-director-star Zach Braff announced that Kate Hudson will play the female lead in Wish I Was Here. Take a look at the photo that includes a concept illustration for Kate Hudson's character Sarah, the wife of Zach Braff's Bloom, along with his full update from his Kickstarter page, which includes the cast he has assembled so far.
"The character of Sarah (my wife) needs to be pretty, funny, believable as a mother of two children ages 5 and 12 and an actress who's skilled at both comedy and drama.
Years later, we have become good friends. There's an added benefit in already being close with the actor playing opposite you; a familiarity that's real and isn't forced. As we shoot in August, »

As anyone who regularly greets their friends with a "Hey brother!" and an overly forceful neck rub will tell you, Michael Cera plays the youngest member of the Bluth family in Fox's (and now Netflix's) cult comedy show Arrested Development. But, as our interview with Cera and his co-star Alia Shawkat reveals below, it was very nearly someone else doing the Snoopy walk: Michael Angarano.You may know Michael Angarano from his turn as Will in Sky High, though he also appeared in more critically-acclaimed fare, such as Haywire, Almost Famous and Lords Of Dogtow. But what's important is just how close it was on the George Michael front. Just-a-few-days-in-it close, in fact. Have a look at our video interview to find out more about how it happened for Michael Cera (and not for Michael Angarano) and then feel free to take a few minutes imagining Mr. Angarano wearing a jet pack, »

Much has been made of Jay-z’s involvement with Baz Lurhmann’s epic adaptation of The Great Gatsby. The music mogul has never before lent his name or his talents to a project in this way before (we’re not counting his “inspired by” American Gangster album). Despite the hype, this soundtrack collaboration is fundamentally safe (if seemingly off to a fast start on the charts.). Not only is The Great Gatsby a tent-pole blockbuster with an above-the-title director and major A-list talent, it’s a grandiose celebration of New York jazz age glamour and excess — which in some ways, »
