Jude Law Needs Fewer Soulless Blockbusters and More Iconoclasts Like Paolo Sorrentino’s ‘The Young Pope’

19 June 2017 11:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Jude Law, who’s always been hard to pin down, and his title role in HBO Emmy Contender “The Young Pope” is no exception. 

Bottom Line: As he embraces his mid-40s, Jude Law has morphed from British golden boy to globally bankable character actor. His range is wide, from tragic robot Gigolo Joe in Steven Spielberg’s “A.I.” to Robert Downey, Jr.’s comedy sidekick Dr. Watson in Guy Ritchie’s blockbuster “Sherlock Holmes” franchise. Still stunningly handsome, Law is gaining grit and gravitas as he gets older. But there’s a sense he’s still holding back.

Latest Misfires: Law took on evil power-monger Vortigern opposite Charlie Hunnam as Arthur in Ritchie’s attempt to similarly update “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, »

Ed Harris’ ‘Westworld’ Turn Was A Perfect Late-Career Move For One of Our Best Actors — Career Watch

5 June 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Ed Harris, who’s doing what he’s always done: owning character roles in film, theater and television.

Bottom Line: Harris has an iconic masculine American gravitas. The camera loves him and you can count on Harris to deliver a character’s emotional spine with subtle and sturdy grace. That’s why this hard-working actor never falls out of demand. And he seemingly can do anything, whether stalwart hero (John Glenn in “The Right Stuff” or the Mission Control voice in “Apollo 13” or “Gravity”) or contemptible villain (see “The Firm,” “Enemy at the Gates,” “Swing Shift,” or “The Rock”).

Director Peter Weir (“The Truman Show,” “The Way Back”) once told me that shooting Harris is “spiritual, a man that has a past and regrets, »

Catherine Zeta-Jones to Star in Lifetime’s “Cocaine Godmother”

19 May 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Catherine Zeta-Jones on “Today”

Catherine Zeta-Jones is set to play a criminal mastermind. The Oscar winner has signed on to star in Lifetime’s “Cocaine Godmother,” a biopic about Griselda Blanco, better known as the “Cocaine Godmother.” According to a press release from Lifetime announcing the film, Blanco’s drug distribution network spanned across the U.S. — and it’s not just her involvement with illegal substances that she’s known for. She is suspected of having ordered over 200 murders.

Scheduled to premiere in 2018 on Lifetime, the crime drama will explore Blanco’s extraordinary life. She was just 17 when she “made her way to the U.S. with a fake passport with her first husband, Carlos. Living in Queens with her three sons, Griselda became enticed by the money the drug world offered, and quickly became embroiled with local drug runners,” Lifetime summarizes. “Griselda masterminded the use of beautiful women, the elderly, and children as the mules and created false-bottom suitcases to smuggle cocaine from Colombia. With money rolling in, her sons abandoned school and entered the family business instead.” She later re-located to Miami and California, and was arrested by the DEA in the latter. While she was sentenced to a decade in jail, the case against her “collapsed and upon her release, she was deported to Colombia, where she was ultimately gunned down in 2012.”

Joan Harrison (“Manson’s Lost Girls”) and Alisa Tager (“Enemy at the Gates”) are among the project’s executive producers.

Zeta-Jones’ casting is likely to cause some controversy. Blanco was Colombian and Zeta-Jones is Welsh.

Jennifer Lopez will also portray Blanco in a TV movie. The “Shades of Blue” actress is set to topline and executive produce an as-yet untitled HBO movie about her. “I’ve been fascinated by the life of this corrupt and complicated woman for many years,” said Lopez when the project was announced.

Zeta-Jones won an Academy Award in 2003 for “Chicago.” She was last seen in “Feud,” playing actress Olivia de Havilland.

Catherine Zeta-Jones to Star in Lifetime’s “Cocaine Godmother” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

The Wall Review

6 May 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Doug Liman’s The Wall faces the same problem as Netflix’s Sand Castle – is there anything left unsaid about an already mass-criticized Iraq invasion? We’ve heard it all. Government debriefings, conspiracy theories, oil-slick motivations. At this point – almost a decade after occupancy began to wind down – what more is there to exploit? Not much, which is why writer Dwain Worrell draws up this cat-and-mouse sniper battle like a modern-times Enemy At The Gates. One location, sun-soaked tension and a maniac shooter with his sights locked on American troopers. Imagine Jonás Cuarón’s Desierto, except instead of Jeffrey Dean Morgan hunting Mexican border crossers, a Middle Eastern man takes exception to the flag-waving “invaders” who just want to “help.”

Stop me if you’ve heard/seen/experienced these patriotic paradoxes before.

23 March 2017 10:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Hulu has released a new trailer for its upcoming original drama series “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Based on Margaret Atwood’s 1985 best-selling novel of the same name, the series stars Elisabeth Moss in the lead role.

Moss plays Offred, a woman enslaved as a handsmaid in the household of the Commander of the nation of Gilead, a totalitarian regime in which women are simply property of the state. Offred is part of a group of fertile women forced into sexual servitude in an attempt to populate the world.

Trailer For John Cena's New Movie "The Wall"

25 February 2017 8:33 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Courtesy of Amazon Studios

Amazon Studios and Roadside Attractions has released the trailer (below) for its new movie starring John Cena and Aaron Taylor Johnson.  The Wall is a psychological thriller set in Iraq that puts a Us Sniper Tandem against a Sniper that has more in mind than just killing.  The trailer reminds me of a combination of some older movies like Enemy At The Gates and Phone Booth.  John Cena  continues his transition from WWE Superstar to Movie Star in his first film as the main actor since The Reunion.   John has seen success in Hollywood playing smaller roles in major movies like Trainwreck and Daddy's Home over the past year.  Also starring in this movie is Aaron Taylor Johnson who has seen his rise in fame since starring in films like Kick-Ass, Godzilla, and Avengers: Age of Ultron as Quicksilver.  Look for The Wall to hit theaters »

Get a first look at Joseph Fiennes as Michael Jackson in Urban Myths

11 January 2017 4:09 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Some time ago people got in a tiff when it was announced that Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare In Love, Enemy At The Gates) would be playing Michael Jackson during the later years of his life in a TV movie alongside Stockard Channing as Elizabeth Taylor and Brian Cox as Marlon Brando. Controversial hubbub aside, it’s impossible to imagine Fiennes as the late popstar and not think, "Wow... Read More »
