In the late 1890s, Frederick Hill Meserve, the son of a Union solider, started collecting photographs from the Civil War. Collecting images — particularly those of President Lincoln — became something of an obsession, and he eventually acquired the largest single collection of Lincoln images. Meserve’s collection was used as the basis for the penny, the portrait on the $5 bill, the Lincoln Memorial and Mount Rushmore. The collection is vast — over 70,000 items — and became a family project for five generations. As if this didn’t sound more amazing than the plot of National Treasure, it gets better: Dorothy Meserve […] »

Nicolas Cage is a workhorse and may be one of the busiest actors today. In an era where big name actors might release a single movie per year, Cage typically comes out with three, four or even five. At any given time he may have over a half dozen movies in various stages of production. Cage is a good actor, often a very good actor, and has made some very entertaining movies that stand up to repeat viewings. I enjoy much of what he does from the over-the-top supernatural action-horror movies “Ghost Rider” and “Drive Angry,” to the adventure-mystery “National Treasure” franchise and his voice work for about a half-dozen animated movies. His list of credits and genres is vast and, if his movie output is any indication, he’s a very busy guy. This can be a good thing for Cage fans, but may result in »

Justin Hires, who has had bit parts in 21 Jump Street, Stomp the Yard and Key & Peele, has taken the second lead in CBS and Warner Bros. TV's Rush Hour pilot. He will take on the role of Carter, originated by Chris Tucker in the 1998 Rush Hour movie. The studio decided to go with two relatively unknown actors to headline the show, also casting Jon Foo, best known for the video adaptation Tekken, in the Jackie Chan role of Lee.
Justin Hires reportedly beat out quite a few well known actors for the role of Carter, though none of the other hopefuls were mentioned by name. The studio wanted to go with unknowns, as they felt the roles were too closely associated with Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker. Jon Turteltaub, known for the National Treasure franchise, will helm the pilot and is an executive producer, alongside writers and executive producers Bill Lawrence and Blake McCormick. »
A host of celebrities will be battling it out to be crowned National Treasure 2015 at this year's Comic Relief.
David Walliams said: "To make a good Comic Relief sketch you need something special, you need big guest stars and something you can only see on that one day of the year - Red Nose Day. For me, this is hopefully all of those things.
"I'm really excited about this year's Red Nose Day campaign because it's a real bumper year for comedy, and the whole reason that I loved Comic Relief at school and beyond was because I loved comedy. »
Foo’s previous credits include bit parts in the likes of Batman Begins and Universal Soldier: Regeneration, while he also starred as Jin Kazama in the Tekken movie, as well as Ryu in the acclaimed fan film Street Fighter: Legacy.
The Rush Hour pilot is being directed by Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure), while series Bill Lawrence (Scrubs) and Blake McCormick (Mad Men) write and executive producer alongside Rush Hour helmer Brett Ratner and producer Arthur Sarkissian.

Just weeks after CBS issued a pilot order for their Rush Hour TV series, National Treasure director Jon Turteltaub has signed on to direct the pilot. The filmmaker will also serve as executive producer alongside series creators Bill Lawrence and Blake McCormick. No cast members have been attached at this time, and it isn't known when the pilot will start production.
Bill Lawrence revealed last month that the show will center on the same types of characters as the Rush Hour movie franchise, except they will be "a little younger" and the show will feature a whole new story. The Rush Hour movies starred Chris Tucker as a cocky Lapd cop who is forced to team up with a by-the-book Hong Kong inspector (Jackie Chan). The original Rush Hour, which hit theaters in 1998, spawned the sequels Rush Hour 2 (2001) and Rush Hour 3 (2007).
National Treasure and Last Vegas director Jon Turteltaub has signed on to helm the pilot episode of Rush Hour for CBS, according to Deadline. Based on New Line’s eponymous buddy cop franchise, the show is poised to revitalize the series in an entirely different medium while still retaining that fish out of water comedy heritage.
Fans of the original may disappointed to note that CBS’ rendition of Rush Hour won’t bring back stars Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker – once described as the fastest hands in the east meeting the biggest mouth of the west – for another bout of crime fighting action, but with Brett Ratner and Arthur Sarkissian returning to executive produce, the network’s small screen reboot could very well channel the gleeful, on-the-nose magic of the trilogy.
