De Niro Tops Onscreen Deaths List

28 December 2010 8:06 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Robert De Niro has topped a gruesome new survey - he has 'died' on screen more times than any other Hollywood star.

The Taxi Driver legend has met a nasty end in 15 different movies, including Cape Fear, Jackie Brown, and Heat, topping a poll by ChaCha.com.

Second in the list is Bruce Willis, who has racked up 11 movie deaths, including two at the hands of his real-life ex-wife Demi Moore - in Mortal Thoughts and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.

Third place goes to Johnny Depp, with 10 onscreen deaths, including his blood-spattered exit in A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Dustin Hoffman, Al Pacino, and Jack Nicholson are tied with nine.

The top 10 is rounded out by Denzel Washington (eight), Christian Bale (eight), and George Clooney (five). »

Robert De Niro Tops List of Most Movie Deaths

27 December 2010 4:16 PM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

ChaCha put together a list of actors who have died the most in their movies. Topping the list is Robert De Niro with fifteen deaths, including ones in "Cape Fear," "Frankenstein" and "Jackie Brown." Bruce Willis also made the list and was actually killed twice by his ex-wife Demi Moore in "Mortal Thoughts" and "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle." Brad Pitt is in top ten as well, but his deaths are a bit odd. He died in "Cool World," but returned as an animated character. He died in "Fight Club," but never actually existed. And he died in "Meet Joe Black," but came back as Death. The list is far from perfect, since it doesn't include Leonardo DiCaprio (The Departed, Titanic, Blood Diamond), Kevin Spacey (Se7en, American Beauty, La Confidential), Samuel L. Jackson (Deep Blue Sea, True Romance, Jurassic Park), or John Travolta (Pulp Fiction, Face/Off, The Punisher). Plus, there »

Jessica Alba Disses Directors; Says 'Fantastic Four' Made Her Want to Quit Acting

22 November 2010 3:30 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Filed under: Celebrity Interviews, Cinematical

You'd be wise to avoid Jessica Alba in public metropolitan spaces. I know she's real pretty and you might want a picture with her or something, but if a bus happens to pass by she'll throw you under it faster than you can say 'Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World.' Last week our own Alison Nastasi brought you word of an interview Alba gave to Elle Magazine, in which the actress (to put it generously) offered choice soundbites about her craft, saying things like, "Good actors never use the script unless it's amazing writing. All the good actors I've worked with, they all say whatever they want to say." Naturally, a few Hollywood scribes took offense to this, including 'Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle' screenwriter (to put it generously) John August, whose frustrated retort was easily the finest work of his career. »

How Many 'Great' Comedy Sequels Can You Name? One? Two? More?

4 June 2010 12:25 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Today Universal released Get Him to the Greek, a sort-of sequel to 2008's Forgetting Sarah Marshall as it uses Aldous Snow who had a small role in the original. Beyond that, there is only a brief reference to Sarah Marshall, which has me thinking it's not really a sequel as much as it is a spin-off. The same could be said for a movie like Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001)... Same characters, but not really a sequel to Clerks, which ended up having its own sequel in 2006.

In a debate with a group of fellow Seattle critics trying to decide if Get Him to the Greek was a sequel to Forgetting Sarah Marshall or not, the topic turned to comedy sequels in general and I was asked to name a great comedy sequel. Should be easy... right?

I started mining my memory banks, and started thinking of movies with »

Diaz Snubs Charlie's Angels Return

21 May 2010 12:06 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Cameron Diaz has hung up her halo and ruled out a return to the Charlie's Angels franchise, insisting she wouldn't be able to fit into her character's tight outfits.

The actress took on the part of Natalie Cook, alongside fellow Angels Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu, in a 2000 movie adaptation of the popular 1970s TV series.

The trio reprised their roles for a 2003 sequel, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, but Diaz has ruled out another installment.

She tells Us Weekly magazine, "People ask me if I'd do Charlie's Angels 10 years from now, and I'm like, 'What?!' It's a little bit tricky fitting into those pants from 10 years ago (as it is)."

But Diaz admits there's one film franchise she'll always be happy to return to - Shrek

And, even though Shrek Forever After is touted as being the fourth and final film in the green ogre series, she's holding out for more: "I'm in! Hopefully we won't have to wait that long."

Shrek Forever After was released in the U.S. this week (ends21May10). »

Demi Moore Working on a Memoir

18 May 2010 6:55 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

She went from '80s Brat Pack bit player to '90s leading lady, and from Mrs. Willis to Mrs. Kutcher. Now, Demi Moore is writing about it all. Moore, 47, is working on a memoir and meeting with publishers in New York, her agent, Luke Janklow, tells the Associated Press. No prospective title or other details have been reported. Even before she was famous, Moore led an unconventional life. A self-described "trailer-park kid," she moved at least 30 times by the age of 14, dropped out of high school at 16 and married rocker Freddy Moore at 18. She and Moore divorced, St. Elmo's Fire made her a star, »

Iron Man 2's Justin Theroux on How He Suddenly Became an A-List Screenwriter

10 May 2010 1:00 PM, PDT | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

In Hollywood, Justin Theroux puts most other multi-hyphenates to shame. The 38-year-old actor is already well-known for roles in film (Mulholland Drive, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle) and TV (Six Feet Under), and he even directed the Sundance entry Dedication, but after co-writing the Ben Stiller comedy Tropic Thunder, he's suddenly become the town's most in-demand screenwriter. Iron Man 2 is his latest credit, though Theroux's got many more scripts on his plate, including Space Invader, Chief Ron, and Zoolander 2, the latter of which he'll direct. (If you'd rather see him in front of a camera, never fear: he'll play the villain in next year's James Franco/Danny McBride stoner comedy Your Highness).

Movieline already teased a little bit of our interview with Theroux; now, here's the rest, where he describes his unlikely career shift, the unorthodox Iron Man 2 writing process, and what he's got planned for the Zoolander franchise. »

Exclusive: Justin Theroux Draws the Blueprints for Iron Man 2

2 May 2010 11:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Screenwriter Justin Theroux discusses writing the continued adventures of Tony Stark in the most anticipated film of the summer

Justin Theroux first gained fame as an actor for his roles in films like Mullholand Drive, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle and Miami Vice but he is now enjoying a very successful career as a screenwriter thanks to the film Tropic Thunder. In fact, actor Robert Downey Jr. was so impressed with Theroux's work on that film that he lobbied director Jon Favreau to hire him to write the screenplay for Iron Man 2, which hits theaters on May 7th. However, Theroux's challenge in writing the script would be threading the storylines left over from the end of the first film into a coherent and exciting story for the second movie that could also introduce ideas used to set up the forthcoming film, The Avengers, while creating new characters and still balancing »

In fact, actor Robert Downey Jr. was so impressed with Theroux's work on that film that he lobbied director Jon Favreau to hire him to write the screenplay for Iron Man 2. On Friday we had a chance to sit down with Justin Theroux while he was out doing promotions for the new film, which hits theaters on May 7th.

We began by asking Theroux about Iron Man's long time nemesis from the comics, The Mandarin, and if there was a chance that the character would make a cameo appearance in the new film?

Boos! & Whoop-doos!: Why Is Pegasus Black? and Other Remake Mysteries!

8 April 2010 4:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

B. Alan looks at a decade of horrible cinematic remakes and rehashes that ruined film as an art form.

Black Pegasus? Boo!

Why is Pegasus black? Why did this flying horse need to be recast El Negro? It makes about as much sense as casting Cedric the Entertainer in the role of Ralph Kramden. There is no reasoning being placed behind it, other than, "We can do what we want! We can do what we feel!" It's strange that in both Clash of the Titans and 2005's The Honeymooners, the only hint of imagination or originality came from swapping ethnicities. In neither case does it pertain to, or help push along the story. It's senseless esthetic scrambling. Sure, poor black folks probably work in the sewer and beat their spouses, too. So why not update an old 1940s sitcom to reflect how far we've come? But Pegasus? Come on! Nowhere »

Dynasty Star Forsythe Dead At 92

2 April 2010 6:31 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Dynasty and Charlie's Angels star John Forsythe has died, aged 92.

The actor, who played Blake Carrington in the hit 1980s soap and provided the voice of the mysterious Charles Townsend in TV crime series Charlie's Angels, died of complications from pneumonia in Santa Ynez, California on Thursday.

Born in New Jersey, Forsythe started out as a baseball announcer and drama teacher. He began his acting career on Broadway and signed a deal with Warner Bros. just before World War Two.

He enlisted in the Army Air Corps.

After the war, he co-founded the Actors Studio, where his students included a young Joan Collins - who was to become his Dynasty co-star - and appeared in a series of TV plays.

By the mid-1950s he was among the most in-demand TV and radio thespians, and landed a big deal in 1957 when he signed up to play Bentley Gregg in hit show Bachelor Father.

He continued making appearances in top-rated TV theatre projects and was given his own show, The John Forysthe Show, in the mid-1960s. He also landed a long run in To Rome With Love.

But his heyday as a TV icon was yet to come - he voiced Charlie in Charlie's Angels on television from 1976 to 1981 and then became the star of soap phenomenon Dynasty throughout the 1980s after George Peppard quit as Blake Carrington.

According to imdb.com, he was the only actor to appear in all 220 episodes of Dynasty.

Forsythe had one more successful TV run in the early 1990s as Senator William Franklin Powers in The Powers That Be.

He returned to the spotlight at the beginning of the new century to reprise his Charlie voice in the Charlie's Angels movie and sequel Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.

Forsythe spent the last four years of his life battling cancer. His family has asked that fans donate cash to the American Cancer Society in lieu of flowers.

Flowers will be placed on his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to mark his passing. »

Director: James Mangold

Writer: Patrick O'Neill

Cast: Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Peter Sarsgaard, Olivier Martinez, Paul Dano, Marc Blucas, Maggie Grace, Viola Davis

Studio Description: An action-comedy centered on a fugitive couple (Cruise and Diaz) on a glamorous and sometimes deadly adventure where nothing and no one-even themselves-are what they seem.

This started and ended with Mission: Impossible movies: Mission: Impossible II grossed $215.4 million in 2000, and Mission: Impossible III grossed $134 million in 2006. Mr. Cruise's public image, though, took a beating while doing publicity for War of the Worlds in 2005: from jumping »

Topics/Questions/Exercises Of The Week—15 January 2010

15 January 2010 10:25 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Executive Decision: Or should we call this one "They Were Expendable?" Early in the week, it was announced that the fourth Spider Man film to be directed by Sam Raimi and star Tobey Maguire was not, in fact, going to happen. Raimi had told the studio he could not deliver the film for its 2011 deadline, and studio head Amy Pascal  and Some Dude from Marvel decided not to replace Raimi but rather to "reboot" the franchise à la Batman Begins, or something. Observe Nikki Finke and Michael Fleming, "Immediately, the news brought celebration and consternation equally to webslinger fanboys who say the reboot plot puts Peter Parker back in high school." I don't follow the ins and outs of studio heads and dealmaking as much as I used to, but it's always kind of interesting to observe the semiotics of such situations. In this case, not much outrage resulted. »

'Parks & Recreation': Justin Theroux! Oh, and Will Arnett too.

5 January 2010 4:51 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

There has been much anticipation of Amy Poehler's real-life husband Will Arnett guest-starring on her NBC comedy "Parks & Recreation." Which is great and all, because who doesn't like Gob?

But with all that love being showered on Arnett, it's kind of gotten buried that Justin Theroux is also guesting on the episode. Justin Theroux!

Brenda's neighbor/lover Joe on "Six Feet Under"? The mysterious "Cowboy" in "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion"? Drew Barrymore's first love in "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle"? The only halfway-watachable person in David Lynch's "Inland Empire"?

Not ringing any bells? Trust us, he's awesome. And multi-talented. In addition to his acting credits, he also wrote "Tropic Thunder" and the upcoming "Iron Man 2."

Fine. Just wait until Jan. 14 and see for yourself.

Until then, here's a couple of more clips featuring Poehler and Arnett, since that's who you came to see:
