Wamg Interview: Actor John Carroll Lynch – Director of Lucky

Actor John Carroll Lynch first caught the attention of moviegoers in 1996 when he played Frances McDormand’s husband in Fargo (“People don’t much use the three-cent stamp”). A native of Boulder, Colorado, Lynch spent the next decade popping up in supporting roles in a variety of films including Volcano, Face/Off, and Gothika. It was his chilling, scene-stealing turn in David Fincher’s Zodiac in 2007 that made moviegoers really take notice and when he went from being ‘that Norm Gunderson guy’ to ‘John Carroll Lynch, – dynamic character actor’. Lynch continued to impress in roles on the big screen in films like Gran Torino, Shutter Island, Jackie (where he played Lyndon Johnson), and The Founder, where he played one of the McDonald brothers. On the small screen he’s entertained audiences as John Wayne Gacy on American Horror Story and even had his own stand-alone episode of The Walking Dead.

The 1 Adorable Thing Robert Downey Jr. and His Wife Always Do on the Red Carpet

The 1 Adorable Thing Robert Downey Jr. and His Wife Always Do on the Red Carpet
Robert Downey Jr. has been one of our biggest Hollywood crushes since the '80s, and his wife, producer Susan Levin, obviously agrees. The two first met on the set of Gothika in 2003, shortly after Robert split from then-wife Deborah Falconer. Even though Susan turned down his advances twice, they eventually struck up a romance when he asked her out for a third time, and they continued dating after production wrapped. He proposed on the night before her 30th birthday, and they tied the knot in New York in August 2005. Aside from being loving parents to son Exton and daughter Avri, Robert also credits his wife for helping him get sober after a long struggle with drug and alcohol addiction. Not only have they supported each other off screen, but they have also worked together on movies like Sherlock Holmes and Iron Man 2. They even have their own production house called Team Downey.

Halle Berry Takes on The Blob Remake?

Halle Berry Takes on The Blob Remake?
The Blob remake has been in development for a very long time and updates have been few and far between. However, it looks there may have been a somewhat quiet, interesting development on the movie. If a new production listing is accurate, it looks like Oscar-winner Halle Berry has been tapped to star in the long-gestating modern retelling of The Blob.

The news was uncovered by Bloody Disgusting, who discovered that the horror production company Swengroup updated a listing on their site for The Blob. According to the listing, Halle Berry is the sole star attached to be in the movie. There wasn't a lot of context provided in the listing, but her name was there, along with Simon West (Con Air, The Expendables 2), who is apparently still attached to direct. If this turns out to be true, it would be a pretty big deal.

Interview: John Caroll Lynch for The Founder

In The Founder, John Carroll Lynch stars as Mac McDonald – who, partnered with his brother Dick McDonald (Nick Offerman) – created the first McDonald’s restaurant in California in the 1940s. Based on a true story, the new film from director John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks), follows the trail of how traveling salesman Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton), impressed by the brothers’ innovative assembly-line approach to the kitchen, maneuvered himself into a position where he was ultimately able to take control of the company, transforming himself in the process to the ‘founder’ of an economic empire.

The Founder

Appearing in over 50 films and television productions, John Carrol Lynch first sprang to prominence in 1996 with the Coen brothers’ critically acclaimed, Fargo. His films include Gothika, Things We Lost in the Fire, Zodiac, Gran Torino, Shutter Island, and Crazy, Stupid, Love. On television, Lynch has starred in such popular series as The Drew Carey Show

The many movie injuries of Halle Berry

Simon Brew Jan 30, 2017

The movie work of Halle Berry has seen her break bones, and nearly choke to death on a fig during a sex scene…

Whatever you think of her movies, there’s little doubting that Academy Award winner Halle Berry has suffered for her art. Notably one of the few performers to win both an Academy Award and a Razzie for their acting, Berry – to her credit – also turned up to pick both up. That was back in an era where the Razzies didn’t feel as cheap and school bully-alike as they do now.

What I like about Halle Berry is I don’t think I’ve ever come away from one of her films feeling like she hasn’t put a shift in. Even the ones I’m not so keen on, there’s never a sense that she’s left me short-changed. You can’t deny,

Snakes on a Plane Becomes a Reality for Terrified Airline Passengers

Snakes on a Plane Becomes a Reality for Terrified Airline Passengers
Earlier this summer, the cult hit Snakes on a Plane celebrated its 10th Anniversary, and as implausible as that movie was, it just became a reality for a group of Mexican airline passengers. During an AeroMexico flight from Torreon to Mexico City yesterday, passenger Indalecio Medina posted a video to social media, which shows a massive snake, believed to be a venomous green viper, falling from an overhead compartment to the main cabin. The plane was given priority clearance to land in Mexico City so that animal control could properly remove the snake.

While it still isn't known how the snake even got on the plane, Upi reports that Indalecio Medina captured the snake in a blanket and gave it some "magazines to read." He also posted another brief video on Twitter that shows animal control workers removing the snake. Here's what a representative for AeroMexico airlines had to say in a statement.

John Cusack: examining his recent straight-to-dvd movies

facebook

twitter

google+

John Cusack has made 17 films in four years. We've found the ones that have gone all-but straight to DVD and watched them...

John Cusack is a bit of a Hollywood oddity. There’s no pattern to the type of movie he will choose to do, so he’s always kept us on our toes. Sure, he’ll make a dumb action movie, but that will often afford him the chance to make a few smaller gambles later on. Up until the last few years he’s played the system very well, but recently his ethic appears to have, um, waned? A little?

Since the heady days of Say Anything and Sixteen Candles he’s come to represent a sort of slightly weird-looking, awkwardly charming, offbeat everyman that men aged 18-49 can look at and go 'me'” - which is fine. There’s a place for that, as

Halle Berry in talks to Join Cast of 'Kingsman' Sequel

Since winning her Best Actress Oscar in 2002, I'd argue that Halle Berry just hasn't quite enjoyed the kind of post-Oscar career that was all-but promised that glorious evening, when her win was proclaimed in the entertainment media as a pivotal moment in Hollywood history in terms of work available for black actors and actresses, and Berry specifically, who some said had broken down a once-closed door that would lead to much more and even bigger roles for her in studio filmmaking. That never quite happened. Not that she hasn't been working; she certainly has, but in mostly forgettable fare: "Gothika," "Catwoman," "Perfect Stranger," "Dark Tide,"...

Robert Downey Jr. Receives Full Pardon for 1990s Drug Charge

Robert Downey Jr. Receives Full Pardon for 1990s Drug Charge
Iron Man and Marvel's The Avengers star Robert Downey Jr. got an early Christmas gift this year. On Christmas Eve, the actor was granted a pardon for his 1996 drug conviction from Gov. Jerry Brown. Pardoning has become a holiday tradition, with 91 other individuals also being granted clemency for minor offenses. Some of the offenses that were pardoned on Christmas Eve aren't even felonies in California anymore. Here is the full text from the California governor.

"By completion of his sentence and good conduct in the community of his residence since his release, Robert John Downey, Jr. has paid his debt to society and earned a full and unconditional pardon."

Brown spokesman Evan Westrup went onto explain that these pardons come as a way to help those who've overcome their problems pull themselves up from past transgressions. And it is reiterated by the governor himself that only those who truly earn it are granted a pardon.

When Oscars turn sour: 10 disastrous post-Academy Awards roles

When Oscars turn sour: 10 disastrous post-Academy Awards roles
Think that winning an Academy Award provides an actor with a surefire path to unlimited great roles? Think again. Oscars history is filled with stars who've taken home a gold statue only to see all their hard work undone in seconds with a stinker of a follow-up movie.

Digital Spy takes a look at 10 of these instances below...

Halle Berry - Catwoman (2004)

A piercing performance in Monster's Ball won Halle Berry an Oscar in 2002, but a rocky road lied ahead. She followed it up with disastrous Bond movie Die Another Day, hardly any screen time in X-Men 2 and turgid horror Gothika. Oh, and Catwoman... how could we forget Catwoman (believe us, we've tried)?

Jeff Bridges - Tron Legacy (2011)

Jeff Bridges's Oscar victory for Crazy Heart felt more like an acknowledgement for a body of work than that particular role (Crazy Heart is not his best). Thank goodness, then, that
