Actors Get Work: Jane Fonda Finds 'Better Living Through Chemistry'; Kate Beckinsale and Nick Nolte Selected For 'The Trials of Kate McCall'

17 May 2012 11:10 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Jane Fonda sure is busy these days. After taking only the occasional role over the past seven years, Fonda is suddenly everywhere again and can be seen the upcoming comedy-drama "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding," Aaron Sorkin's HBO series "The Newsroom," and will play Nancy Reagan in Lee Daniels' "The Butler." Add Geoff Moore and David Posamentier's "Better Living Through Chemistry" to Fonda's schedule as well.

Already in production in Los Angeles, the film stars Sam Rockwell as a small-town pharmacist who has an affair with a customer's trophy wife (Olivia Wilde), who introduces him to the pleasures of prescription drugs (apparently he never tried his own products). Things get messy when she wants him to kill her husband. According to Deadline, Fonda's character will be a customer of Rockwell's pharmacy who is "the conscience" of the film. Currently in France for Cannes, Fonda will soon head to Maryland to shoot her scenes. »

Take Three: Piper Laurie

7 May 2012 8:01 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Craig (from Dark Eye Socket) here with this week's Take Three. Today: Piper Laurie

Take One: Hesher (2010)

Laurie has played the grandmother figure a few times in recent years (Hounddog, Eulogy, The Dead Girl), but she best conveyed matriarchal feeling last year in Hesher. The film uses the familiar narrative coupling of a loveable old person and unruly younger person connecting despite obvious differences. This time it's carried out with keen subtlety because the people involved are Laurie and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who make this arrangement work in a delightfully fresh way. Their friendship isn’t the main thrust of the narrative, but a key characterful diversion, and the genuinely heartfelt union elevates the film with tiny moments of tender affection.

Laurie's Grandma is there for her grandson (Devin Brochu) through the mourning of his mother and later when Gordon-Levitt’s stoner/drifter crashes the family home. Her open acceptance of »

Steve Carell and Toni Collette Head for 'The Way, Way Back'

18 April 2012 7:52 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Toni Collette and Steve Carell are reconnecting onscreen for the first time since way, way back in 2006's "Little Miss Sunshine" in the latest project from Oscar-winning screenwriters Jim Rash and Nat Faxon... "The Way, Way Back."

Dysfunction isn't anything new to this pair; as you might remember, Carell and Colette played siblings in "Sunshine," the suicidal scholar Frank and frazzled mom Sheryl. This time around, Carell is taking on the role of the jerky stepfather to Colette's teen son, who, after one intense summer, finds the strength to give his crappy, cheating, drunken stepdad the what-for. This will be the "Descendants" screenwriting duo's directorial debut.

While Steve Carell is most famous for doofy characters like Michael Scott in "The Office" and lamp-loving Brick Tamland in "Anchorman," he does show off a slightly darker, troubled side in movies like "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" and "Dan in Real Life. »

TV Review: Kerry Washington Stars in Over-Written, Melodramatic ‘Scandal’

5 April 2012 7:54 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Shonda Rhimes has made waves on network TV with her unique, stylized approach to characters on hit shows “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice.” She occassionally has a gift for pulpy TV and her latest, “Scandal” sometimes hits that nerve that wants an escapist soap opera after a long day at work. More often, it feels over-done, like someone trying to stir controversy with outlandish, unbelievable behavior. It’s a tough show to review. If you approach it with even an ounce of sincerity, you’ll likely laugh it off. But if you approach it knowing that this is a daytime soap opera that just happens to be in primetime and can appreciate the fearless ludicrousness of it all, it just might be your favorite way to turn off your mind.

TV Rating: 2.5/5.0

Anna Faris and Rose Byrne 'Give it a Year'

6 March 2012 7:40 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Anna Faris may be the reigning queen of the romantic comedy, but that doesn't mean she can get downright cynical about love. Variety reports that the "What's Your Number?" actress is teaming up with "Bridesmaids" star Rose Byrne for the Working Title rom-com "I Give it a Year."

The movie, written and directed by "Borat" helmer Dan Mazer, tells the story of a pair of quirky newlyweds, played by Byrne and "Prometheus" star Rafe Spall, as they navigate their first year of wedded bliss.

Simon Baker – yes, "The Mentalist" himself – will have a major supporting role, as will Faris.

Byrne, whose resume reads like a list of reasons for going on anti-anxiety meds, having starred in films like "Insidious," "The Dead Girl," and "28 Weeks Later," has shown her comedic prowess in movies like "Bridesmaids" and "Get Him to the Greek," but will be leading an ensemble comedy for the first time with this film. »

Kerry Washington talks "Scandal," "She Hate Me" and that Dusty Springfield biopic

26 January 2012 9:55 AM, PST | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

For the last couple of years, Kristin Chenoweth has told reporters how badly she wants to star in a biopic of the legendary bisexual vocalist Dusty Springfield. And as Dusty's lover, Kristin wanted Kerry Washington for the part. The two have professed their desire to star together ever since, and it's still not come to fruition.

I had to ask Chenoweth: Where is the movie? The lesbians need to know!

"Not just lesbians, maam, me!" Kristin said at the ABC TCA party. "You know what? I don't know. We had a script that needed a lot of work, but Dolly Parton is writing her show so she wants me to do that. I'm like 'Hurry up, Dolly!'"

But she hasn't wavered on who she wants as her on-screen lover. "That's my girl!" she said of Kerry. "Wouldn't she be perfect with me? If I was lesbian, she'd be my girl. »

Thoughts on... Deadgirl (2008)

8 January 2012 2:08 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadgirl, 2008.

Directed by Marcel Sarmiento and Gadi Harel.

Starring Shiloh Fernandez, Noah Segan and Candice Accola.

Synopsis:

Two high school boys bunk off school to go drink beers in the local abandoned insane asylum - what could possibly go wrong? How about discovering a bound and gagged naked (un)dead woman…

Rickie and Jt are two best friends, the typical horny teenagers often seen in your run-of-the-mill teen movie. One, Rickie, is lusting after his childhood crush Joann (Candice Accola) who has the jock boyfriend and the stupidly high standards. Jt however is a bit different. Jt is downright obsessed with sex, to the point where on discovering the ‘dead girl’, his reaction is to get down and dirty with her.

The two as central characters are enough to carry the movie - but initially I was sceptical as the acting is a little wooden. It can be forgiven once the story plays out, »
