Did you watch last night's pilot episode of "The Blacklist"c Did you like itc Personally I found it to be a sloppy, cheaply made mess and was astonished to learn Joe Carnahan (Narc, The Grey) not only produced it, but directed it on what I can only assume was a shoestring budget based on how plastic and low-rent each set piece and location felt. To begin, what was with the plastic box James Spader's Raymond 'Red' Reddington was being kept in and what was with the 30-second opening of the boxc Watch the clip above and just as the extra walks across the screen around the 20-second mark as the box begins sliding just a bit quicker as if someone on the production was yelling, "Move faster! This is taking forever!" Reddington had just surrendered (to an army of men pointing guns and rifles for some reason) and »

How would you like to see the first episode of NBC’s new TV show, The Blacklist?
For decades, ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader, “The Office,” “Boston Legal”) has been one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as “The Concierge of Crime.” Now, he’s mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: He will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, under the condition that he speaks only to Elizabeth “Liz” Keen (Megan Boone, “Law & Order: Los Angeles”), an FBI profiler fresh out of Quantico. For Liz, it’s going to be one hell of a first day on the job.
What follows is a twisting series of events as the race to stop a terrorist begins. What are Red’s true intentions? Why has he chosen Liz, a woman with whom he seemingly has no connection? »

Mention of Ethan Hawke's name might conjure up some of his critically lauded performances in movies such as Reality Bites, Training Day or Before Sunrise. You might associate him with his successful stage career, or his two well-received novels, or the documentary he made last year about Shakespeare's Scottish Play.
Yet since the very beginning of his career, Hawke has made occasional - and often excellent - forays into science fiction, thrillers and horror. His first screen role was in Joe Dante's 1985 sci-fi fantasy Explorers, in which he played a young boy who, along with his friend Wolfgang (the late River Phoenix) creates a spaceship and heads off on an intergalactic adventure. Although not a financial hit, »
Ethan Hawke might not be the biggest movie star on the planet, but the man is without question one of the most consistent actors working today, and he elevates that reputation considerably with his fantastic work on Before Midnight, which is released in UK cinemas today (it’s amazing… my glowing praise of the film is Here).
If Hawke is an actor unafraid of both challenging artistic pursuits and straight-up genre fare, this has occasionally caused his career to suffer a few momentary blips, though as is often the case, it is most often a poor script that gives the actor little to work with than him outright flopping on his own.
Thankfully for every Taking Lives, Hawke has at least a few Gattaca’s, and so he’s able to weather the storm with considerable ease. From Oscar nominations to critical beat-downs, here are Ethan Hawke’s 5 awesome performances, »

Both Texas-born and vets of the Austin indie filmmaking scene of the mid-90s, the two actors have since floated through independent, art house, and mainstream projects to varying degrees of success. Hawke, for the most part, stayed indie while Wilson went big. They are the story of Generation-x: Former malcontents grasping for authenticity and fame in an industry that is designed to make those dual aspirations somewhat impossible.
When observed as a series of choices beginning in 1994, the careers of Hawke and »

Washington, Jun. 1: Ethan Hawke, who shared screen space with Angelina Jolie almost ten years ago in 2004's thriller 'Taking Lives,' has said that his kiss with the actress was his best ever onscreen.
The 42-year-old actor confessed to chat show host Andy Cohen during an episode of Bravo's 'Watch What Happens Live' on Wednesday, May 29, that pillow lips and lot of tongue was what made the kiss so great, Us magazine reported.
He said that Jolie was born to make men weak, adding that when she kisses someone, the person doesn't remember his own name. (Ani) »

It's been nearly 10 years since they shared the big screen in 2004's thriller Taking Lives, but Ethan Hawke's onscreen kiss with Angelina Jolie are still fresh in the actor's memory. "With all due respect -- the woman has been in the press a lot lately -- but I will say, the best onscreen [kiss] I ever had was [with] Angelina Jolie," the 42-year-old actor confessed to talk show host Andy Cohen during an episode of Bravo's Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday, May 29. "What made it [...] »
Kiss and tell! Ethan Hawke was a guest on Watch What Happens Live this week and spilled the sexy details on what it was like to smooch Angelina Jolie in the 2004 film Taking Lives. The actor revealed to Andy Cohen that the mother of six was without a shadow of a doubt his best onscreen kiss. What made it so great?" Cohen asked. "Pillow lips, a lot of tongue…what?" "Why is Amadeus, Wolfgang Mozart, a genius?" Hawke replied. "I'm talking…Angelina Jolie was born to whittle men, to make them weak. And when she kisses you, you don't know your name." Goodness gracious, what would Brad Pitt think?! »
Hugh Jackman lives out every parent's worst nightmare when his daughter, along with the daughter of family friends, is kidnapped on Thanksgiving in the trailer for Prisoners. He and his wife, played by Maria Bello, devolve into understandable puddles of fear and rage when the detective on their case (Jake Gyllenhaal) locates a creepy suspect (Paul Dano). Without proper evidence, the suspect is let go - but not for long. He soon finds the tables are turned and he is now the prisoner. Jackman's character is intent on making him talk, by any means necessary. Those who have seen his young psychopath in Taking Lives know Dano excels at quiet, sinister characters, and he helps make Prisoners look haunting, dreary, and altogether incredibly disturbing. I love seeing Jackman as the protective father, but I'm especially interested in watching Gyllenhaal. Is it just me or does his detective seem like he might have something to hide? »

Ethan Hawke was a guest on "Watch What Happens Live" earlier this week and, among other things, shared steamy details about his past co-star -- one of the most desirable women in the world, Angelina Jolie.
The two starred in the thriller "Taking Lives" together almost a decade ago, but Hawke says Jolie -- now a mother six and engaged to Brad Pitt -- made herself very memorable. "My best onscreen kiss was with Angelina Jolie," he confessed, as the rest of the show's guests oohed and aahed.
"What made it so great?," asked him host Andy Cohen. "Pillowy lips, a lot of tongue ... What?"
Just saying what we're all thinking, Ethan! »

If Halle Berry feels like catching up on U.S. cinema, she’ll never get a better chance than next month in Paris.
The 2nd Champs Elysees Film Festival’s guest of honor, Berry will be in Paris for an event, unspooling June 12-18, that is consolidating as both a smorgasbord of titles by up-and-coming American helmers, and a commercial springboard for more major U.S. premieres in France from the likes of Richard Linklater and Barry Levinson.
Two nations promote their national cinemas with unrelenting conviction: the U.S. and France. When a French festival promotes U. »

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the first announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on NBC.
The Peacock did not have a good year. Only one of its new shows, "Revolution," was a true hit. Another, "Chicago Fire," got renewed by the skin of its teeth whilst the fate of a third, "Hannibal," remains uncertain.
None of last year's new comedies survived, neither did two mid-season dramas, which leaves the network with some big holes to fill. Three dramas and three comedies will debut in the Fall ahead of three more dramas and two comedies mid-season. Two further dramas and a comedy are presently unscheduled.
Several other pilots didn't make the final cut and won't become series including the high-profile Charlize Theron-produced drama about the Hatfields and McCoys, the Bruckheimer-produced »
