Lawyer reveals that Melbourne actor – in court on two counts of driving on a suspended licence – has a part-time labouring job

The life of an actor is often far from glamorous – but nothing seems to bring that fact into focus quite so clearly as hearing that the celebrated Australian actor Vince Colosimo has to work as a labourer on building sites to make ends meet.

The AFI award-winning actor, who starred in the television series Underbelly and the films Chopper and Lantana, appeared in Melbourne magistrates court on two counts of driving on a suspended licence, as first reported in the Herald Sun.

Vale Richard Soames

5 November 2014 10:34 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Richard Soames, a well-known and influential figure in the Australian screen industry for 30 years, has died at his home in Los Angeles, aged 78. Soames was the long-time CEO of completion guarantor Film Finances, the first company to provide completion guarantees at the introduction of the 10Ba tax incentives in 1981. The London-born Soames joined Film Finances in the early 1970s and expanded the business in the Us, Canada and Australia. "Richard was such a part of the scene down here in the 80s and 90s," said Sue Milliken, who represented Film Finances in Australia until Anni Browning took over as MD in 2010. "He visited at least three times a year, travelled all over the country to film locations and he was on the telex and later the fax and email on a daily basis no matter where he was in the world. Our working relationship was a fantastic one, based totally on trust. »

Geoffrey Rush to Star in Screen Australia-Backed ‘Daughter’

6 August 2014 12:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hong Kong — Oscar-winning actor, Geoffrey Rush will star in “The Daughter,” a drama that marks the feature film debut of noted Australian stage director Simon Stone.

Rush (“Shine,” “The King’s Speech”) will appear with Ewen Leslie (“The Railwayman,” “Dead Europe,” “Sleeping Beauty”) in the picture, to be produced by Jan Chapman (“The Piano,” “Lantana”) and Nicole O’Donohue. The story follows a man who returns home to discover a long-buried family secret, and whose attempts to put things right threaten the lives of those he left home years before. “The Daughter” will be distributed in Australia by Roadshow Films and overseas by Mongrel International.

Stone previously directed Leslie in Aleksei Arbuzov’s stage-play “The Promise.” Stone is director in residence at Sydney’s Belvoir St. Theatre.

‘A Most Wanted Man’ Review: Philip Seymour Hoffman Bends the Spy Game Rules

24 July 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

As we've learned from countless novels, movies, and TV shows over the years, the great spies glean information by distracting their marks with one narrative, all the while subtly weaving a separate, hidden agenda. That's a concept that works for screenwriter Andrew Bovell (“Lantana,” “Head On”) and director Anton Corbijn (“The American,” “Control”) in their big-screen adaptation of John le Carré's “A Most Wanted Man.” There are a lot of characters and events for the audience to process and digest, but all the while it's the film's theme that sneaks up and overtakes the plot, making for a powerful climax. »

26 February 2014 5:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The cinematic adaptation of Markus Zusak’s best-selling novel The Book Thief is out in UK cinemas today, check out our review here. To celebrate the transition of this moving tale from page to screen we’ve taken a look at the much celebrated career of the film’s leading man, Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush.

With a screen career spanning over thirty years, Rush has become recognised as one of the finest actors of his generation, winning a host of top awards and starring in some of the stand-out films of the last few decades. It would take a substantial amount of time to document all of his finest achievements in film, but here are a few of our favourites.

Arguably the performance that put the Australian actor on the world map, Rush was awarded the much coveted gold statue for Best Actor at the »

Sundance Film Review: ‘A Most Wanted Man’

19 January 2014 11:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Intelligence is both the subject and the approach of Anton Corbijn’s “A Most Wanted Man,” a meticulously plotted, steadily absorbing Hamburg-set drama that casts a cynical yet compassionate eye on the complexities of counterterrorist work in the post-9/11 era. Adopting the same cool, methodical approach that he did in his offbeat procedural “The American,” Corbijn succeeds here in large part because his attention to nuance and detail so fully complements that of the German operatives at the story’s core. Starring the Teuton-accented trio of Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams and Willem Dafoe, a risky casting decision that ultimately pays off, this decidedly low-pulse endeavor will put off viewers who like their spy thrillers with a bit more oomph, but should court plenty of intrigue among discerning arthouse-goers who see the name “John le Carre” and know what they’re in for.
