Michael Fassbender: The Next 'James Bond' ?

11 July 2016 6:08 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Oscar-nominated actor Michael Fassbender ("12 Years A Slave"), at 39-years old, has the looks, chops and killer instinct to play the next big screen 'James Bond', now that dog-faced Daniel Craig has officially left the '007' movie franchise:

"To be honest with you", said Fassbender, "I think they should reboot the 'James Bond' series and go back to his origins as a soldier.

"I’ve got a great idea for it actually, so (producer) Barbara Broccoli talk to me..."

The stage-trained actor's feature film debut was the fantasy war epic "300" (2007), playing a 'Spartan' warrior.

Prior to that, he appeared in the HBO TV miniseries "Band of Brothers" (2001) and the Sky One fantasy drama "Hex" (2004–05).

He first came to prominence for his role as 'Ira' activist 'Bobby Sands' in "Hunger" (2008), for which he won a 'British Independent Film Award'.

Subsequent roles include playing a 'Royal Marines' lieutenant in "Inglourious Basterds" (2009)...

‘Game Of Thrones’: Season 6 Finale Director Miguel Sapochnik On Military Aesthetic, That Score, And Putting His Stamp On The Long-Running Series

28 June 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Last night’s Game of Thrones season finale, “Winds of Winter,” is already being hailed as one of the greatest episodes in series history.

Warner Bros.' adaptation of Stephen King's timeless novel It has had more than its fair share of ups and downs, but now it seems the project is finally on the right track. Andres Muschietti stepped in last year to replace the departing Cary Fukunaga, who had been attached since 2012. And the studio set a September 8, 2017 release date in April for the project. Today we have word that the filmmaker is actively casting for the iconic clown Pennywise, with one new contender entering the mix.

A new report from Bloody-Disgusting reveals that Andres Muschietti is holding his own auditions for the role, which include make-up tests. One contender that has read for Pennywise is Kirk Acevedo (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes »

Are you ready for the summer? (2016 edition)

31 May 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Calendar-wise, summer doesn't begin for another few weeks. As far as the TV business is concerned, though, summer began at 11:01 p.m. on Wednesday night, when the 2015-16 network TV season officially ended. The break used to be a little cleaner, but as cable and streaming outlets premiere shows year-round, and as the broadcast networks have become a bit less bound to the rules of the calendar, there's more overlap than ever before. HBO's dynamite Sunday lineup has another month to go, late spring broadcast premieres for shows like Person of Interest and Houdini & Doyle mean they have a few more weeks in them, and the next few months will see a mix of new and returning scripted material across every kind of TV provider there is in 2016. The next few days, weeks, and months will feature the return of some of the best shows on television, including UnREAL (Lifetime, »

Matthew Broderick: ‘Morgan Freeman Doesn’t Sound Like God, God Sounds Like Morgan Freeman’

26 April 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Morgan Freeman was hailed as a cinematic icon and the inspiration for President Barack Obama’s political career at the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Chaplin Award ceremony on Monday.

The gathering, a champagne soaked affair that brought out one percenters, cinephiles, and A-list talents such as Helen Mirren and Matthew Broderick, veered briefly away from film projects and into the current political landscape.

In toasting the Oscar-winner, Robert De Niro joked that Freeman’s deft handling of an asteroid on a collision course with earth inspired the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to seek higher office.

“In 1998 he played President Beck in the movie ‘Deep Impact.’ Morgan’s movie performance was an inspiration for the young Barack Obama,” De Niro joked to the audience. “According to reports, after seeing the film Barack turned to his friends in Kenya and said I want to be president, too. If only I had a birth certificate. »

When Video Game Characters Turn To Acting: A Gallery

We’ve already shown you guys saw how sometimes movies can be a muse for video game characters.   Today we’ll take a look at what happens when video game characters invade the movies….literally (but with photoshop).  Don’t know what I mean?  Just look at the photo above.  Remember the show Band of Brothers?  Wouldn’t it be 100 times cooler if Metroid were somehow incorporated into it? I mean it would definitely be pretty funny if you saw Sonic somehow appear in Lord of the Rings.   And what if Mario started to invade the silver screen? Well here is a collection of

Ask Alan: Is 'Walking Dead' overrated? What TV show had the best directors?

1 April 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Happy Friday, everybody! Time for a new installment of Ask Alan, where we revisit my recent frustrations with The Walking Dead, try to figure out if The Office has the most impressive roster of directors of any TV series, and take a little tour through all the swag, books, and DVDs on my office bookshelf(*). (*) One thing I didn't mention, but which people ask me about now and then: why are so many of them still shrink-wrapped? In virtually every case, it's a show I've seen before (often many times), and this is just the most recent version of a box set that I've got. I have multiple versions of Band of Brothers, for instance, including my original HBO screeners, and thus have never felt the need to crack open that commemorative DVD case. As always, you can watch the video embedded at the top and bottom of this post. »

Dexter Fletcher: ‘Alan Rickman gave so much to me. He was a real friend’

28 March 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A former child star, the Eddie The Eagle director was struggling – until a chance meeting changed everything. Here he explains why he loves a happy ending

It is almost unfathomable that Dexter Fletcher is 50. He’s always passed for younger. Bugsy Malone, his first film role at nine years old, had him playing a character called Baby Face, and the rest followed suit. In student journalist TV show Press Gang, he played a 17-year-old until he was 27; even in 2001’s Band Of Brothers, he was 35 playing 22. And today, sitting across from me in a Soho bar, he certainly doesn’t look his age, despite the curls of grey hair exploding from his head. “I’ve just had it styled, believe it or not,” he quips. He exudes the same boyish enthusiasm of his earlier film roles, but Fletcher has seen some dark times, too. Today he’s an unwaveringly optimistic »

The Two Greatest TV Episodes of All Time

28 February 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Samuel Brace on the two greatest TV episodes of all time…

There have been many great and iconic series throughout the history of television. These classic shows have brought us some truly memorable episodes that have become the standard-bearers for the entire medium. There are episodes so exquisitely crafted, so gloriously designed, that they have been able to elicit a power of feeling that can match the best the big screen has to offer. But what are the Best episodes in history? Which episodes rise above all others? Now, we are not talking favourites here, we are not speaking in subjective terms. This place is only for the undeniable, and there are many classics of this nature, many objective greats, but there are only two that stand tall as kings among men.

How ‘The Revenant’ Hair and Makeup Team Transformed Leonardo DiCaprio

16 February 2016 1:21 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Among the 12 Oscar nominations for “The Revenant” is one for best makeup and hairstyling. Variety chatted with the trio that brought a startling reality to the hair and makeup. Makeup and prosthetic artists Sian Grigg and Duncan Jarman are nominated along with hair department head Robert A. Pandini for creating such effects as Tom Hardy’s partially scalped head, Leonardo DiCaprio’s wounds from the bear attack and the frost-bitten look of all the characters.

How did you come to be part of this project? What attracted you to it?

Grigg: I was working on “Suffragette” as the make-up, hair and prosthetics designer, when Leo emailed me to say he had just signed to “The Revenant,” a film he had talked to me about some time ago. The next day the script was sent to me and I soon realized it was going to be a huge make-up job. At »

‘The People v. O.J. Simpson’ Star David Schwimmer on Robert Kardashian: ‘He Was The Only One With Nothing to Gain’

16 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s hard to imagine now, but the Kardashians weren’t always a household name. It all began with dad Robert, who was close friends with O.J. Simpson — and got pulled into his case as a counselor, legal and otherwise, to his longtime pal.

David Schwimmer tells Variety it wasn’t an easy decision to take on the role for “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” given the notoriety. But once he did some research, he was surprised to learn that Kardashian — who died in 2003 — was actually the “heart and conscience” of the series. “Frankly, I was moved by the fact that he was the one character who had nothing to gain from his involvement in the trial,” he says.

Why did you decide to accept the part?

Three reasons, really. The first is the pedigree of the people involved. I’ve always wanted to work with »
