"When I die," Harry Dean Stanton told me once, "people are going to say, 'I thought he was dead already.'" Typical Stanton – and atypically wrong. Though reports insist that the man actually has died at 91, avid moviegoers know he's always been around when we needed a Stanton fix at the movies. Hell, he made over 200 of them. His latest, ironically titled Lucky, with Stanton starring as an atheist on a spiritual journey, opens in two weeks.
Stanton was known as the quintessential character actor. He hated the phrase. "When you label something, »

Chris Evans has no bad blood with his onetime significant others.
The actor recently opened up to Elle about the ex-girlfriends in his life and admitted that he doesn’t feel an ill will toward any of them.
“It’s very rare. But I’ve had no bad breakups in my life,” Evans said. “Typically, if I see an ex, I give a big hug, and it’s wonderful to catch up. If you’re ever fortunate enough to love someone and have them love you back, it’s worth protecting that. It’s rare that someone can truly know you. »

I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for the movie Airplane! I mean how could you not? This is the movie that truly started all parody movies. Everything you see today in the “Scary Movie” franchise is because of Airplane! Remember Hot Shots? That’s because of Airplane!. If it weren’t for the Zucker brothers we never would have gotten Not Another Teen Movie which I happened to love by the way. “Surely you can’t be serious. I am serious, and don’t call me Shirley.” “Yes Stewardess, I speak Jive.” I mean there are countless lines in this film

Chris Evans covers the April 2017 issue of Esquire, and in his interview with the magazine, he touched on everything from family to politics to his Hollywood beginnings.

With a job in La lined up for that August, he'd walk into the high school during the springtime just to see his friends. "We'd go get high in the parking lot. I just f*cked off," he said. "I lost my virginity that year. 1999 was one of the best years of my life." Since then, Chris has had quite the Hollywood evolution, from Not Another Teen Movie to Captain America. Off screen, he's charmed fans and melted us into a puddle, »

While this is 100% unsubstantiated, I’m making a claim right now that the reason you basically haven’t seen Josh Ridnour since How I Met Your Mother ended is because TV and movie execs felt that Josh Ridnour was exactly like his character Ted Mosby in real life. They realized that even if this had a chance to being true, there’s just no way they’d ever tolerate working with this guy. P.S. anyone remember Josh Radnor in Not Another Teen Movie? Yeah, he was annoying in that for half a second too. But let’s get to Ted Mosby In addition to
