Walters will portray the mother of two young men –an insecure 15 year-old (portrayed by Austin Abrams) and a football star, Hank (played by Luke Kleintank) — who are both ensnared in a web of unforeseen consequences during a celebratory hunting trip.
Walters recently completed shooting the lead role in the indie feature “Underdogs.” She had a recurring role on HBO’s “Big Love”; feature credits include “Case 219,” “The Butterfly Effect” and “Cold Mountain.”

Bless you, direct-to-dvd industry, for churning out endlessly amusing extensions of movies that never should have been franchises in the first place. An EW staffer casually mentioned the third Ace Ventura movie earlier today, inspiring a group of us to reminisce about the most random sequels we could think of — sequels many of us were hearing about for the first time.
And so, in honor of both these little-discussed gems and the gift that is Friday afternoon, here’s a list of the genre’s most unassuming entries. Caution: It’s about to get all nostalgic up in here. (Like that’s a surprise. »

It’s a fact that there are more bad actors than good ones, and as a result there are considerably more awful films made than masterpieces. It’s one thing being a bad actor, it’s another being a shame to your profession. There are actors, like the ten on this list, who churn out mind-numbingly awful movies time and time again, and whether through laziness or lack of talent, the end result is the same; you, the audience, are going to come out of the cinema very, very unhappy.
There are only so many times an actor can put in a terrible performance before you just give up on them and discard them to the scrap heap. There is one actor on this list who has made many fine movies but a combination of laziness, age and a poor eye for a decent project has left a dismal looking »

We feel like we’re just now waking up from a amnesia-inducing coma, only to discover that our dedicated, loyal husband is none other than Channing Tatum! Except in this scenario, our husband is Ashton Kutcher playing Steve Jobs and our coma was brought on by Ashton’s performance on Two And A Half Men. Does that analogy make any sense at all? We hope so, because what we’re trying to say is the new clip from Kutcher’s upcoming Steve Jobs biopic jOBS suggests that Ashton is bringing it, intensely-ambitious-computer-genius-style.
Between his sitcom day job, The Butterfly Effect and the fact the Steve Jobs movie is named jOBS (which is the worst), we guess we weren’t expecting much from the Kutch. Before you leap all over us to point out that Ashton has actually been pretty great since That ’70s Show, we will admit that we thought »

What’s the difference between the overridden cliches most films use at their expense and the deadly sins films willingly commit against the audience? Maybe not as much as you think. After being used so many times, certain cliches might also be considered sins. However, a film sin must be defined as a willful act that goes against the good laws the film fathers set before us as the standard for making a film.
The film fathers before us, including Charlie Chaplin, Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, Stanley Kubrick, Akira Kurosawa, John Ford, Martin Scorsese, and Francis Ford Coppola, created masterpieces and saw that “it was good” until man decided to use his liberties for evil, and then came the rise of terrible directors including Brett Ratner, Uwe Boll, Michael Bay, and Paul W.S. Anderson. Here are 10 deadly sins we need to either learn to forgive or, better yet, remember to condem. »
