Simon & Schuster Signs Memoir By Comedian Maz Jobrani, Austin Film Fest Favorite

13 November 2014 3:49 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Exclusive: Simon & Schuster will publish I’m Not A Terrorist, But I’ve Played One On TV in hardcover on February 17th. Iranian-American comic Maz Jobrani recounts his struggles building an acting career in post-9/11 Hollywood without having to wear a turban, tote a bomb or get kicked in the face by Chuck Norris or anyone else.

Last month, Jobrani’s Jimmy Vestvood: Amerikan Hero won the Comedy Vanguard Award and the Audience Award at the Austin Film Festival. The film follows the story of wannabe private investigator Jimmy Vestvood as he wins the “Green Card lottery” and moves to America in pursuit of his dream, only to find himself involved in a conspiracy to start the next world war. The film was co-written by Amir Ohebsion and stars Jobrani as the title character.

Here’s the trailer:

Don’t We Want ’70s-Style Adult Thrillers Like ‘A Walk Among The Tombstones’? A Chat With Scott Frank

23 September 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Everybody says, bring back those great, gritty 70s adult thrillers. Scott Frank makes one with Liam Neeson in A Walk Among The Tombstones, and not enough people show up to launch it into a franchise. With $13 million in ticket sales so far, it’s $5 million short of what it is needed to trigger more films based on the Matthew Scudder character from Lawrence Block’s mystery novels. I can sit here and wonder if the results would have been better had Universal opened it after Denzel Washington’s turn in The Equalizer this Friday, when appetites will be whetted  for challenging adult films and heroes without capes. Or I can point to the squeamishness of some critics who blasted Frank for faithfully adapting a novel about Scudder’s hunt for two serial killers preying on the girlfriends and daughters of drug dealers. It is hard to pretty that up, but one normally smart, »

Can These 7 Stars' Careers Be Saved by April Movies?

5 April 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

April is the cruelest month, and not just for T.S. Eliot.

At the multiplex, throughout April, we're in for a brutal, Darwinian survival test for several A-list stars of yesteryear -- from Kevin Costner to Nicole Kidman to Jude Law -- all of whom are currently on the comeback trail. Some of them may end the month on their way back to their former glory, and some will see their careers shredded even further.

Here are our best guesses as to who will thrive and who will starve.

Nicolas Cage

Last Big Hit: 2013 cartoon "The Croods" (starring voice role); 2009 drama "Knowing" (leading role)

Comeback Effort: Drama "Joe" (April 11)

Prospects: Cage is earning the kind of acclaim he hasn't seen in years for delivering a real, non-cartoonish performance in this rural drama as the title ex-con, who becomes the unlikely mentor to a teen (Tye Sheridan) in need of adult guidance. »
