Cameron Diaz: 5 Things You Didn't Know About the Actress

30 August 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Cameron Diaz is widely known for her starring roles in My Best Friend's Wedding, Charlie's Angels, There's Something About Mary and The Holiday. But beyond her recognition as the blue-eyed, 5-foot-9 actress with a megawatt smile, The Hollywood Reporter looks at five facts you probably didn't know about Diaz. Went to High School With Snoop Dogg Diaz and Snoop Dogg attended Long Beach Poly High School at the same time. Before they were stars in Hollywood, the two did "business" together.

Jack Black's 17 Best Movie Roles

27 August 2015 6:14 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

With over 40 films under his belt, Jack Black has quite the resume.

He made his film debut as a political groupie in 1992's "Bob Roberts." He was also Sean Penn's brother in "Dead Man Walking," the head of "The Nasties" in "The Neverending Story III," and target practice for Bruce Willis in "The Jackal."

But none of those roles made a mark: It's his wild child rock persona we loved in "School of Rock" and "High Fidelity," not to mention his teddy-bear soft side in "The Holiday" and the movies that prove he can more than hold his own as a dramatic actor. (Insert off-color joke here.)

In honor of Black's birthday, raise your goblet of rock to toast his 17 best movie roles. »

Edward Burns Explains How Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg and 'Game of Thrones' Influenced His (Great) First TV Series, 'Public Morals'

21 August 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For the last decade or so, you probably know Edward Burns as one of two people: The first is that charming New Yorkah who pops up in romantic comedies like "The Holiday," "27 Dresses," "Friends With Kids" and even "Will & Grace." He's snagged a few roles as cops in a couple of studio flicks, as well, but he's a tried and true "Prince Charming"-type for anyone who loves a thick Queens accent. That person, though, is Edward Burns, Studio Actor. Far more interesting to the indie community and film fans at large is Edward Burns, Writer, Actor, Producer and Director. Since his debut film, "The Brothers McMullen," took home the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in 1995, Burns hasn't stopped writing — and directing, and producing, and acting and more. He's been pumping out character-driven indie films for two decades now, and helping push VOD distribution into the mainstream along the way. »

Shannyn Sossamon: My career didn't just slow down, it 'came to a total stop'

20 August 2015 2:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Shannyn Sossamon became something of an "It Girl" in the early noughties with roles in films including "A Knight's Tale," "40 Days and 40 Nights," the Bret Easton Ellis adaptation "Rules of Attraction" and "The Order" (her second and final film with the late Heath Ledger, whom she called "a very special spirit" but was otherwise reticent to talk about in a short-form interview), but after giving birth to her son Audio in 2003 she all but disappeared from the spotlight. Since then, Sossamon has popped up in everything from well-received indies ("Wristcutters: A Love Story") to big, star-studded Hollywood com-coms ("The Holiday") to TV series (the cult single-season CBS vampire drama "Moonlight"), though recently her resume is heavy on so-called "genre" work, from the 2008 J-horror remake "One Missed Call" to the 2011 post-apocalyptic thriller "The Day" to this year's buzzy summer series "Wayward Pines" and now "Sinister 2," the sequel to the sleeper »

Shannyn Sossamon Recalls "Reckless" 2000s Days, Reveals Freaky "Sinister 2" Set Accident

19 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

When Shannyn Sossamon first hit the scene in the early 2000s, she was one of the Hollywood It Girls. With roles alongside some of the hottest heartthrobs around -- including Heath Ledger, Josh Hartnett and James Van Der Beek -- she quickly made a name for herself in films like "A Knight's Tale," "40 Days and 40 Nights" and "The Rules of Attraction." Now 36 and a mother to two children -- Audio Science, 12, and Clayton, 3 -- those days are a bit blurry to the actress. "I don’t remember anything," she tells toofab's Brian Particelli when asked what it was like to gain notoriety during such a wild time in Hollywood. "I always say that I wasn’t really ready when I started to do movies and so I learned as I’ve been going. It was fun, but I was definitely a little reckless being when I was younger, so I don’t remember much! »

Squirrels Unite: The Forgotten Genius of Kendrew Lascelles

11 August 2015 7:17 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

L.A. is a strange town. Where have I heard that statement before? It is unique in the

world – grown from the Hollywood seed, it has developed its own culture . . . and is,

in parts, quite dysfunctional.

A culture of creative paranoia. Did you know that an agent will not talk to anyone

unless he or she already knows that person, or there is a personal introduction.

Sound anything like Pride and Prejudice?

“Do I know you Miss Elizabeth?”

“We have yet to be introduced, Mr. Darcy.”

No one will read anything – forget a script - even an email – without a

recommendation from a trusted colleague. I pity the folk at 2000 Avenue of the Stars

when the unknown fireman tries to evacuate the building in a crisis.

“I’m sorry sir, the people on the 12th floor refuse to accept that you are a real

person. Do you have an appointment? »

Trailer: The Intern, starring Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway

13 May 2015 10:10 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Robert De Niro is The Intern, Anne Hathaway is the boss. Here's the trailer...

Set for release in the Us in September (and on October 2nd in the UK) is the new comedy from director Nancy Meyers, The Intern. Meyers is best known for helming movies such as The Holiday, The Parent Trap (remake) and Something's Gotta Give, and in her latest, she's cast Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway.

The conceit with this one is that the film centres around a fashion website, one that brings in an older intern. Hathaway is the CEO here (one who rides a bike through an office, no less), whilst De Niro plays a widower who decides to come out of retirement. Much of the rest of the plot is revealed in the promo below.

The first trailer for the movie was released overnight, and you can see how it's all shaping up right here. »

Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro become best friends in first trailer for ‘The Intern’

13 May 2015 6:08 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Who wouldn’t want to be Anne Hathaway’s best friend?

The first trailer for The Intern has acting legend Robert De Niro playing that role as the two star in writer/director Nancy Meyers’ latest comedy. The film also stars Rene Russo, Anders Holm, Andrew Rannells, Adam Devine, Celia Weston, Nat Wolff, Linda Lavin and Zack Perlman.

The Intern follows De Niro as Ben Whitaker, a retired widower who decides to get back in the game by becoming a “senior intern” at a major fashion company, founded and run by Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway). Before long, Ben proves himself a valuable member of the team and an important person in Jules’ life.

Meyers also directed and wrote The Parent Trap, Something’s Gotta Give, It’s Complicated, and The Holiday so the comedic tone hits much the same, even though they exchange a romantic relationship for a more platonic one. »

Jack Black's 17 Best Movie Roles

6 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Jack Black's new film, "The D Train" is -- believe it or not -- the comedian's 46th movie. He made his film debut as a political groupie in 1992's "Bob Roberts." He was also Sean Penn's brother in "Dead Man Walking," the head of "The Nasties" in "The Neverending Story III," and target practice for Bruce Willis in "The Jackal."

Like father, like son!  Jude Law's son, Rafferty Law, hit the red carpet with his mom/Law's ex-wife Sadie Frost for a sneak preview of Collette Cooper's new album, "City of Sin," on Friday in London, England.  Frost and Rafferty posed for pics together outside the event ... where we couldn't take our eyes off 18-year-old model. Doesn't he look just like the "Closer" actor?!   Rafferty is just one of the 42-year-old's children with Frost. The exes are also the parents to Iris Law, Rudy Law and Sophia Law.  Jude and Sadie tied the knot 1997, but the couple split in 2003 after six years of marriage. The British actress blamed "The Holiday" star for "exacerbating her post-natal depression" after they welcomed their third child together, Rudy, in 2002 Rafferty first landed on our radar in 2014, when he walked the runway for a Dkny show in London.

Alex Garland of 'Ex Machina' follows others who took a writing-to-directing leap

11 April 2015 | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Alex Garland, screenwriter of “28 Days Later,” “Sunshine” and “Never Let Me Go,” makes an impressive directorial debut with cerebral sci-fi thriller “Ex Machina” (in theaters today), but Garland waves off the achievement of leaping to directing as “just next in a continuum.” “The truth was that there was no epiphany moment about directing, because I just don’t dignify the directing role the way we’re supposed to,” the British filmmaker told The Dissolve. “There are a few people — like Woody Allen, he’s an auteur, and I’m cool with that. But for me, directing is about collaboration.” Whether directing is a logical next step or a hard-sought achievement for screenwriters, it’s often done by telling studios, “Hey, here’s my next screenplay. You can have it as long as I get to direct.” Preston Sturges — at the time the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood — is noted for »
