Frankie Muniz goes nuts with a machine gun and sharks explode in Sharknado 3 trailer

15 June 2015 3:29 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Malcolm in the Middle's Frankie Muniz goes absolutely crazy while firing off a machine gun in a new teaser for Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!.

The third instalment in Syfy's disaster movie series brings back Ian Ziering and Tara Reid as the shark community's worst enemies.

This time around, the couple are called into service when the Us president (Mark Cuban) and vice president (Ann Coulter) are deluged by sharks at the White House.

Joining the cast is David Hasselhoff as Ziering's on-screen father, while Cassie Scerbo returns from the original Sharknado as Nova Clarke.

As usual, the sequel will be packed with cameos from Jerry Springer, Nsync's Chris Kirkpatrick, WWE star Chris Jericho, Today's Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, singer Ray J and record producer Ne-Yo.

Hasselhoff has already promised that the parody of disaster epics will be the "worst movie ever".

11 things you may not know about Tomorrowland star Britt Robertson

22 May 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Although she may not be the most well-known name in Tomorrowland, here at Digital Spy we think Britt Robertson is a star in the making.

With Disney's Tomorrowland opening in cinemas across the country today (May 22), here are 11 facts about the actress which you perhaps didn't know.

1. Britt comes from a Big family.

Brittany Leanna Robertson is the oldest of seven children - talk about sibling rivalries! With three half-siblings on her mum's side and three on her dad's side, growing up in the Robertson family sounds like it could have been quite hectic. No wonder Britt moved out at 14, to search for her fame in Hollywood.

2. She acts way younger than her age.

Pardon the cliché, but in Tomorrowland, Britt literally does act younger than her age, playing a 15-year-old character despite actually being 25.

Speaking about the drastic age difference, she said: "If I can play 15 when I am »

Tom Towles, Actor in Horror Movies, Dies at 65

6 April 2015 1:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tom Towles, a character actor who appeared in horror movies and had a recurring role on “NYPD Blue,” died April 2 after suffering a stroke. He was 65.

Though he did have a small role in 1975’s “Dog Day Afternoon,” Towles was more associated with the films of Rob Zombie, appearing in “House of 1000 Corpses,” “The Devil’s Rejects,” Zombie’s 2007 reboot of “Halloween” and the fake Zombie-shot trailer for “Werewolf Women of the S.S.” included in the 2007 film “Grindhouse.”

Towles memorably played the repugnant Otis in 1986 indie “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” and the obnoxious Harry Cooper in the 1990 remake of “Night of the Living Dead.”

Zombie remembered Towles on his Instagram page Monday, saying “He was a nice funny guy.”

 

Non-horror credits include “Mad Dog and Glory” (1993), “The Rock” (1996), “Doctor Dolittle” (1998) and 2006’s “Miami Vice.” His most recent film was 2008 horror comedy “Blood on the Highway.”

SXSW Film Review: ‘Fresno’

18 March 2015 4:42 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The titular burg will probably not be throwing a parade for “Fresno,” a mean-spirited farce whose strenuous bad taste seldom translates into actual laughs. A cast of familiar faces and funny people — though they’ve all had much, much better material — will make this a viable ancillary item, though it’s unlikely to accrue the modest cult following attached to helmer Jamie Babbit’s 1999 debut feature, “But I’m a Cheerleader.”

Babbit and her scenarist Karey Dornetto have each worked on a number of good TV comedy shows; between them, they include “Girls,” “Arrested Development,” “Community,” “Nip/Tuck,” “Portlandia,” “Malcolm in the Middle,” “The Jamie Kennedy Experiment” and “South Park.” But the feature format is apparently not their friend, together or separately. “Cheerleader” was awfully broad, 2007’s “Itty Bitty Titty Committee” painfully so; for its part, “Fresno” provides pain and lots of broads (this is a lady-free zone), and is pretty awful. »

‘Seinfeld’ Actor Daniel von Bargen Dies at 64

4 March 2015 1:53 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Daniel von Bargen, a prolific character actor best known for his role as George’s lazy boss Mr. Kruger on “Seinfeld,” as Commandant Edwin Spangler, the military veteran who oversees the cadets at Marlin Academy, on TV’s “Malcolm in the Middle,” and for his role in a two-part episode of “The West Wing” in which he played Air Force General Ken Shannon, died March 1 in Montgomery, Ohio, after a long illness.

The actor had most recently appeared in Thomas Edward Seymour’s 2009 feature “London Betty,” in which he starred.

But mostly von Bargen was relegated to small but frequently memorable supporting roles.

His film credits include “The Silence of the Lambs, »
