10 Things You Didn’t Know About George Clooney

21 May 2015 10:34 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Brothers

Looking back at the great actors from the Golden Age of Hollywood – the stars like Clarke Gable and Spencer Tracey – and it’s apparent how few A-list actors working today have quite the same sense of style and gravitas. George Clooney is one of the few who follows in their illustrious footsteps and brings a degree of class to his films.

Clooney’s effortless suave and sophistication is apparent in many of the films he’s starred in – from the mediocre rom-coms all actors of his stature appear to be obliged to star in through to the textbook Ocean’s heist movie franchise, few other actors quite manage to exude cool as well as Clooney.

He may have apologised recently for his part in Joel Schumacher’s much derided Batman And Robin but, on the whole, there’s very little in the way of clunkers on his impressive filmography. »

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

Actors-turned-directors: The good, the bad and the unwatchable

11 April 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

This month Alan Rickman's A Little Chaos, Ryan Gosling's Lost River and Russell Crowe's The Water Diviner see these performers make the dizzying leap from actor to director. But in which of their colleagues' footsteps might they follow?

We take a look at six different categories of actor-turned-directors.

The career-changers

Too handsome to be a supporting actor, and lacking the gravitas of a major star, Ben Affleck looked to be heading towards Kilmer-ville before he released Gone Baby Gone, a dark Dennis Lehane thriller he co-wrote and directed, with brother Casey taking the lead. Follow-up The Town proved solid, but his next effort, Argo, was a surprise Best Picture winner. The fact Affleck didn't receive a Director nomination suggests he's not yet been forgiven for the likes of Gigli, but the forthcoming Lehane adaptation Live By Night should fix that.

Stranger Than Science-Fiction: Steven Shainberg Senses the “Rupture”

2 April 2015 5:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Before 50 Shades of Grey was made fashionable by mainstream auds, Secretary was a sizzler cubicle space title that made Steven Shainberg a sought after indie helmer. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Rupture will be his comeback of sorts, as he hasn’t lensed a film in almost a decade. To be fair, he did produced some projects, including Our Brand is Crisis for his docu-filmmaker wife Rachel Boynton, but his highly imaginative Fur was completely maimed during its theatrical run. Producer Andrew Lazar who broke out with 1996′s Bound (worthy pair in his filmography include Confessions of a Dangerous Mind and the underrated 2009 comedy, I Love You Phillip Morris) and recently broke the bank with American Sniper is producing the project along with Christina Weiss Lurie (frequent Sundance accepted docu-producer), Ambi’s Andrea Iervolino and Lady Monika Bacardi (The Humbling, James Franco’s currently being filmed In Dubious Battle »
