How many careers can one man have? Eli Wallach was a Tony award-winning Broadway actor and a soldier, a leading pioneer in the realm of Method acting and Mr. Freeze on the Batman TV show, a villainous live wire and an elderly person so intrinsically soulful that just his presence in a movie could make you happy and sad for no apparent reason.
Wallach was already over 50 when he got his most famous role, and he had almost 50 years left on this earth afterwards. There are a couple of generations that probably only know the older Wallach, stepping into movies »

Legendary actor Eli Wallach, best known for his role as the villainous Tuco in The Good the Bad and the Ugly, passed away in New York City yesterday at the age of 98. The actor's passing was confirmed by his daughter, Katherine.
Born in 1915 in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, Eli Wallach began studying acting after receiving a B.A. and M.S. in education from the University of Texas and City College of New York. His acting ambitions were cut short when he was drafted to serve in World War II, but he began acting in several plays upon his return to New York in 1945. In 1948, he was one of the 20 core actors who helped found The Actor's Studio, where he honed his method acting craft.
Legendary multi-award winning actor Eli Wallach died on Tuesday from natural causes. He was 98.
Wallach has appeared in more than eighty films since his first starring role in 1956's "Baby Doll," though is perhaps best remembered for his key roles in two of the most famous westerns of all time - "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly" and "The Magnificent Seven".
Other films in which he often played a memorable role included his turns as Guido in "The Misfits, " The General in "Lord Jim," Napoleon in "The Adventures of Gerard", Don Altobello in "The Godfather Part III," Adam Coffin in "The Deep," Cotton Weinberger in "The Two Jakes," Donald Fallon in "The Associate," and small but key roles in more recent fare like "Mystique River," "The Ghost Writer," "The Holiday" and his final film "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps".

A true acting legend, Eli Wallach has sadly passed away at the age of 98. The son of Polish Jewish growing up in New York City, Wallach began his career in 1956, his first notable role came in 1960's The Magnificent Seven, playing bandit leader Calvera. Westerns were his bread and butter for much of his early career, and this career path brought him his most famous role, Tuco in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. The Ugly of the title, Wallach put in an extremely memorable turn, even giving Clint Eastwood a run for his money.

He was the ugly to Clint Eastwood’s Good and Lee Van Cleef’s bad and it is with great sadness we must report the death of Eli Wallach at 98 years old. Best known as Tuco in The Good, The Bad And The Ugly and as bandit leader Calvera in Hollywood’s remake of Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Wallach was far more than just the go to man for slimy Mexican antagonists that littered many westerns of the era. He played Mr. Freeze in the Batman TV show of the 1960s, the mafia leader Don Altobello in The Godfather Part III and took on a less imposing role in 2006′s The Holiday.
Born on 5th December 1915, Wllach failed to get the grades to attend New York’s City College, but returned to the big apple to attend the Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theatre after graduating from The University of Texas. »

Eli Wallach, star of The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, has sadly passed away at the age of 98.
We're sad to report that Eli Wallach, perhaps best known for his scintillating turn as the bandit Tuco in The Good, The Bad And The Ugly has sadly passed away.
A veteran of the stage as well as a master in front of the camera, Wallach amassed a fine collection of work that began all the way back in the 1940s when he made his Broadway debut. A lover of the stage, Wallach would star in a number of Broadway productions and was rewarded with a Tony Award in 1951 for his role in Tennessee Williams's play, The Rose Tattoo.
His versatility later saw Wallach move forward into film, making his debut in 1956 film Baby Doll, a role that would propel him to greater heights as he later starred in 1960's The Magnificent Seven, »
98 years old. Remarkable. I can't imagine making it to 98. I can't imagine the breadth of life experience you could have in that amount of time. Eli Wallach leaves behind a truly great filmography and a family life that is enviable, having been married to the same woman, Anne Jackson, since 1948. She had a hell of a filmography herself, and they had three children together. I am in awe of anyone who can build a life that solid for that long, never mind someone who works in the film industry, where relationships are, at best, impermanent, and at worst, inconsequential. Wallach will leave an amazing legacy onscreen, but he was part of something larger, a total shift in the way acting was approached, and telling his story is telling the story of that paradigm change. He was part of that first wave of Method actors who made the jump from their »

Ever since his scene-stealing turn as Bumper Allen in the a capella comedy Pitch Perfect, Workaholics actor Adam DeVine has been highly in demand.

Remember when Jude Law's character in The Holiday introduced us to Mr. Napkin Head? That was adorable, yes, but it's nothing compared to these funny faces! On Tuesday's Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Grand Budapest Hotel star and the late-night host engaged in a "Funny Face-Off" with viewers' kids. Vanity was pushed aside as both Jude and Jimmy did their best to imitate the children and their comical expressions. Jude, a father of four, started off gamely in the competition, doing a fairly decent imitation of Sophia's cross-eyed, fishy-face look. Jimmy, who's tho proud dad of 7-month-old Winnie Rose, tried to mock young Maya's expression. He was a tad too smiley »

“The reason this is happening is because I’m pursuing my own agenda about the school and what I think it should teach,” said George Lucas, who endowed three new chairs in a dedication at the USC School of Cinematic Arts Thursday. The audience laughed, but he drove his point home.
“Don’t forget the basics. Don’t get enamored with new technology, because it’s not new. Just the medium we’re working in is new, but that doesn’t change anything. The art of what we do is exactly the same. It’s beyond technology. It’s the art of movies.”
The younger attendees in the audience tittered with excitement as the “Star Wars” creator – who was perhaps the most casually dressed that night in jeans – spoke.

Director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) is putting together quite the cast for his upcoming spy comedy Susan Cooper. Feig wrote the project for Melissa McCarthy to star as a female James Bond-type, and the cast has recently been filled out with Jason Statham and McCarthy’s Bridesmaids co-star Rose Byrne. Now The Wrap reports that Jude Law is in final negotiations to sign on, marking a shift to a purely comedic role for the actor and a casting coup for the Susan Cooper production. Hit the jump for more. Law is no stranger to lighter material like The Holiday and even the Sherlock Holmes franchise, but he’s been branching out into more comedic fare as of late. He appears in Wes Anderson’s colorful The Grand Budapest Hotel and leads the well-received dark comedy Dom Hemingway, which opens next month. Susan Cooper marks another step in that direction, and it »

First "Saturday Night Live" veteran Tina Fey flocked to The Intern, the new film from Nancy Meyers (It's Complicated, The Holiday), and then Reese Witherspoon stepped into the role. Now there's a change yet again as THR reports Anne Hathaway is in talks to take the lead role in the film about an online fashion business owner thriving from success. However, things get shaken up when she's informed that the company is importing seniors to be interns as a community outreach effort, and one will be under her tutelage. And in case you didn't realize yet, by seniors, we mean senior citizens, geriatrics and old people. Robert De Niro will play a 70-year old widower bored with retirement, after running his own successful business, who is hired into the program. Initially the man becomes a nuisance but grows to be an invaluable part of the woman's life and business as »
