Olivia Wilde: I was deemed 'too old' to play Leo DiCaprio's wife in 'Wolf of Wall Street'
Today on Howard Stern, Olivia Wilde was in studio to promote her role on HBO's Vinyl and in the process provided lots of juicy tidbits, including the fact that at age 28 she was deemed "too old" for the role eventually played by Margot Robbie in Martin Scorsese's 2013 hit The Wolf of Wall Street (!). Also: why she wasn't "totally surprised" that Cowboys and Aliens flopped, what about her role on House makes her cringe, how Chris Farley brightened her day as a young girl and which of her former projects she hates the most. Check out 10 9 major highlights below. 1. She was deemed "too old" for the role of Jordan Belfort's wife in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street. Wilde, then 28, auditioned for the role of Naomi Lapaglia in Scorsese's Oscar-nominated film but was told she was too "sophisticated" for the character -- a note she eventually found out was code for "old.

Complete Buffy reviews: Living Conditions

The Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack may be massively popular all over the globe, but it's always set my teeth on edge. As it happens, I know why this is the case – it can be traced all the way back to 1994 when I'd just started university. The girl in the campus room above happened to be a fan of Rocky Horror and would play the wretched thing over and over until the tape became time warped. And to that day, whenever a Rocky Horror song has come on the radio or TV, I've mentally ground my teeth till there's nothing left but gum.

Living Conditions sees Buffy continuing her mission to try and settle down into college life. While it's a smoother ride than her first days in The Freshman , her growing conflict with Kathy is still making college a bit of a chore. It seems that no matter how hard she tries,

Scarlett Johansson wants to make sure she doesn't 'phone it in' as the Black Widow
Natasha Romanoff, aka the Black Widow, is back and, trust us, Scarlett Johansson isn't complaining about it.  The 29-year-old ingenue is playing the super spy with a dark past for the third time and in the third different franchise in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," Johansson actually has another movie opening on April 4 (although in limited release), Jonathan Glazer's acclaimed mini-masterpiece "Under the Skin" The two movies could no be more different from each other if you tried.  "Winter Soldier" is a superhero thriller with political undertones to modern day concerns over the Nsa.  "Skin," on the other hand, is one of the most daring art films to challenge audiences this century.   Asked if she considers movies like "Skin" (and to a lesser extent "Her") a break from big studio productions, Johansson insists her work in the Marvel universe isn't that different from an art house indie.

Blu-ray: Marvel’s The Avengers is The superhero movie to own – for now

When I first saw The Avengers on the big screen I worried if it could be as large and as magnificent on the smaller screen. Few blockbuster films had achieved such success in creating a fun experience and the size of screen help sell audiences on the Marvel Universe gone wild. But believe me, true believers, if you have a tricked out home theater this is one of the essential blu-ray purchases you’ll make this year.

The Avengers accomplished Marvel Studios’ Phase I in spades. It collected all of these larger than life characters established in other films, and put them on a bigger stage against more unimaginable villains for the big screen. They used the solo films to develop these characters and then brought the all-star cast together to accomplish a few more goals–besides making gobs of money, that is: 1) To kick cinema ass. 2) Expand the horizons

New York City Horror Film Festival Shorts: Day 2

Day two of the New York City Horror Film Festival came and went with no road bumps this time thankfully, as I was able to enjoy the night’s lineup without any delays, along with a special guest appearance by horror icon Rob Zombie, but I’ll touch on that experience later and save the love here for another fantastic night of short films. Teddy bears, talking vegetables, cannibalism – what wasn’t there to love?

The Captured Bird

Director: Jovanka Vuckovic

Isn’t it great when a little piece of cinema comes along and just makes your skin crawl, especially when it’s backed by the likes of Guillermo del Toro, George A. Romero, and Mick Garris? That’s what The Captured Bird brilliantly accomplishes, telling a short story about a tiny child’s encounter with a haunted mansion and five freakish demons birthed from black sludge, along with being

J.J. Abrams’s Bad Robot Looking To Explore The ‘God Particle’

There are rumours abound that Paramount have taken on a hot script called God Particle, written by the upcoming Oren Uziel, who’s a new writer on the scene currently penning the screenplay for Mortal Kombat. Uziel has also written Robbie Pickering-directed sci-fi The Kitchen Skin that is currently in production but sounds intriguing enough. That film follows a group of zombie, vampire and human teenagers who are forced to band together to take on an deadly alien invasion. They just have to suppress their urge to kill each other to do it…

Back to God Particle and it does seem right up Jj’s street to produce, in that similar extremity vein to Cloverfield, as this early synopsis suggests:

After a physics experiment with a large hadron accelerator causes the Earth to seemingly vanish completely, the terrified crew of an orbiting American space station is left floating in the middle of now-even-more-empty space.

Review: Ashley Judd is a mother looking for her son in ABC's 'Missing'
It's been more than a year since Fox debuted "The Chicago Code," which was the most recent show in an unfortunate but amusing tradition of shows promoted relentlessly with the same shouted line in every promo. Before Jennifer Beals was asked, incredulously, "You think you can change how things get done In Chicago?!?!," Ron Silver tried to warn his daughter in "Skin" that "His father is The District Attorney!," while the first "House" promos had House complaining to Cuddy, "You're risking A Patient's Life!" Many of these shows have been good, but it's just too easy to remember the one loud...

Growing up together, Mitch (Ryan Reynolds) and Dave (Jason Bateman) were inseparable best friends, but as the years have passed they’ve slowly drifted apart. While Dave is an overworked lawyer, husband and father of three, Mitch has remained a single, quasi-employed man-child who has never met a responsibility he liked. To Mitch, Dave has it all: beautiful wife Jamie (Leslie Mann), kids who adore him and a high-paying job at a prestigious law firm. To Dave, living Mitch’s stress-free life without obligation or consequence is a world away from his sensible, settled lifestyle. Following a drunken night out together, Mitch and Dave’s worlds

Top 10 comic book characters that should make their screen debuts soon

Superheroes are packing audiences into cinemas this summer. Rob looks at ten other comic book characters that deserve a break on the big screen…

With X-Men: First Class gaining fantastic reviews, Thor surprisingly well received, Green Lantern arriving today, Captain America ready and waiting just around the corner, and Spider-Man, The Avengers, Superman and the final Nolan-influenced Batman tempting us next year, the big names of the comics scene are once again packing audiences into the cinemas.

As such, the archives are being raided for other property’s characters and ideas to translate to film. But is this the best way of getting fan favourite characters onto cinema screens? The masses aren’t going to be queuing around the block to see ‘Aquaman the movie’, meaning that second string or lower tier characters, no matter how visually fantastic or exciting (actually, Aquaman is neither of these things) will see the light of cinema interiors,
