Wilmer Valderrama Joins Cast of CBS’ ‘NCIS’

16 June 2016 3:31 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The actor Formerly Known As Fez has a new mission. Wilmer Valderrama has joined the cast of “NCIS,” playing a NCIS field agent who’s been under deep cover for years – and has finally resurfaced.

“Many agents don’t know he’s still on the job or that he’s even alive,” according to CBS’ logline.  “Now, he’s back and his dedication to job and country has left him an unpredictable, charismatic loose cannon.”

Valderrama helps fill a void left by departing “NCIS” castmember Michael Weatherly. The actor recently recurred on “Grey’s Anatomy” and also appeared on “Minority Report,” “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” and “Awake.” He first came to fame as “Fez” on Fox’s “That ’70s Show.”

The actor’s film credits include the indie dramas “To Whom It May Concern,” from French director Manu Boyer, and “The Adderall Diaries,” opposite Amber Heard and James Franco, »

Anatomy of a Cannes Disaster: What Happened After 'Southland Tales' Was Booed

9 May 2016 5:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

On May 21, 2006, director Richard Kelly was standing on the red carpet outside the Grand Theatre Lumiere, ready to unleash his two-hour-and-40-minute postapocalyptic satire Southland Tales on a curious Cannes crowd. It was one of three American films competing for the Palme d'Or (along with Richard Linklater's Fast Food Nation and Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette). Kelly knew his film wasn't finished and the visual effects were underwhelming. But the clock had run out, and no one turns down an in-competition invitation. "I wanted to go into Cannes and tell everyone that it was a

Cannes: A Look at the Official Selection, by the Numbers

14 April 2016 11:14 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The annual unveiling of the Cannes Film Festival’s official selection lineup is always cause for breathless anticipation and excitement — followed, immediately and invariably, by expressions of shock and disappointment, as well as the usual bleats of indignation over which national cinemas haven’t been adequately represented. This morning’s press conference in Paris, led by festival delegate general Thierry Fremaux and festival president Pierre Lescure, proved no exception.

Journalists in attendance were quick to point out the admittedly startling absence of any Italian films in competition, even though Marco Bellocchio’s “Sweet Dreams” had been tipped for a berth for weeks. Others noted the relative dearth of Asian films vying for the Palme d’Or (only two, directed by Park Chan-wook and Brillante Mendoza). And if they haven’t already, those inclined to see the festival as a sort of cinematic pulse-taking of the Middle East will surely devote »

‘Everybody Wants Some!!’ and ‘Scream Queens’ Actor Glen Powell: ‘I Didn’t Realize My Brand Was Bromance’

7 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ten years after working with Richard Linklater on “Fast Food Nation,” Glen Powell reunites with the director in “Everybody Wants Some!!,” a follow-up to 1993’s retro “Dazed and Confused.” In prepping for the ’80s-set film, the actors lived on Linklater’s ranch for three weeks. “Even though he’s one of the biggest directors in the world, nothing has ever gotten to his head,” says Powell, whose mother and cousins appear in the pic.

What advice did Linklater give to you and the cast?

Lock in the experience of making the movie before you share it with the world. What happens a lot of the time is that box office or reviews will dictate the movie after the fact. … You have to savor and remember what a perfect film experience it was.

Were you a fan of “Dazed and Confused”?

I’m a huge, huge fan. It’s funny because growing up in Austin, »

Ranked: The Best Characters In Richard Linklater's Movies

4 April 2016 11:58 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Austin, Texas filmmaker Richard Linklater helped define the 1990s American indie scene with “Slacker,” a loose collection of conversations with real and invented personalities from the local Austin scene. That first film set a pattern for the filmmaker, who often employs large casts to create sprawling slice of life portraits. The lineup in “Dazed and Confused” could overwhelm a “best characters” list from many other filmmakers, and then there are the “Before” trilogy, “Boyhood,” and the new “Everybody Wants Some!!” to consider, among many others. Read More: SXSW Review: Richard Linklater’s ‘Everybody Wants Some!!’ With Blake Jenner, Tyler Hoechlin, Zoey Deutch & More While often an author of his own scripts, Linklater has adapted material by Eric Bogosian (“SubUrbia”), Eric Schlosser (“Fast Food Nation”), Stephen Belber (“Tape”), Philip K. Dick (“A Scanner Darkly”), and Bill Lancaster (“Bad News Bears”). Even in those cases, the director’s methods and style »

'Everybody Wants Some': Meet Breakout Star Glen Powell

1 April 2016 12:44 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Maybe you knew a guy like Finnegan in high school or college: smart, charming, funny and irritatingly good at everything from nabbing pop flys on the baseball diamond to picking up young women at a night club. He's a jock, for sure, but not the kind of bro that turned house parties into an instant toxic dump of Xy-chromosome douchery. He could get away with faux-worldly affectations like a pipe or quoting Kerouac at keggers. Even among alpha males, this guy was admired as a cut above the rest. If »
