We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.
This week’s “Question of the Week” on Jeff Bayer’s “Movie B.S.” podcast is inspired by Sparkle, a remake of the 1976 film that features actress/singer Whitney Houston in her last on-screen performance. This question is, “What dead performer do you wish had made one last movie before they died, and what would it be?”
In honor of Houston, and many others who left us before giving us the movie that they should’ve made last, here’s a list of the Top 7 Imaginary Last Performances from Dead Actors.

Last Film: The PG-13 family action figure actioner Small Soldiers, 1998.
Should’ve Been Last Film: While it certainly came out some time after 1998, the long-anticipated, now-forgotten Simpsons Movie just wasn’t the same without Phil Hartman, who voiced classic side characters on the TV show like Lionel Hutz and Troy McClure. »

London, August 2: Jessica Biel has revealed that she doesn't have qualms about stripping off again on the big screen even though her last attempt at nude scenes landed up on saucy Internet sites.
The brunette beauty stripped off to play an exotic dancer in Powder Blue, which failed to impress Hollywood bosses and went straight to DVD.
But Biel insists the film flop won't stop her from shedding her clothes for a role again.

According to reports, actress Jessica Biel ("Powder Blue") will play actress 'Vera Miles', alongside Scarlett Johansson, James D'Arcy and Anthony Hopkins, in director Sasha Gervasi's Fox Searchlight feature "Alfred Hitchcock & the Making of Psycho", based on the book by author Stephen Rebello.
Published in 1990, the book details all aspects of the creation of Hitchcock's thriller "Psycho' released to theaters in 1960. From Hitchcock's acquisition of the original novel by author Robert Bloch to his work with screenwriters, casting, filming, editing, scoring, and promotion, the book takes readers into the day-to-day lives of moviemakers who believed they were making a modestly budgeted, black-and-white shocker that represented a radical departure from the elegant, suspenseful films that made Hitchcock's reputation.
Rebello researched Hitchcock's personal records and archives, interviewing most of the "Psycho" surviving cast and crew members.
Prior to the book's publication, Rebello's initial research appeared as a 22-page article in »

Hey y'all! Are you ready for some Os-Cars?? This year, Billy Crystal hosts, Meryl Streep, Glenn Close, Nick Nolte, Christopher Plummer and Martin Scorsese number among the celebrated nominees.... Wtf is it 1985?? Yes, the Academy is going retro, celebrating the history of movies, and not just by lauding "The Artist" and "Hugo." Yeah, there are some newbies and left-field pics, but those kinda feel like shots in the dark at attempting to stay relevant (Rooney Mara, so edgy right now). Who could forget the breaking news from this week that the Academy is only old white men? Total Shocker. But we will attempt to find some fun in the proceedings, and dream of a George Clooney and Tilda Swinton hosted ceremony, where they perform a song and dance routine in matching tuxedos... what, oh sorry I drifted off into a daydream there. Instead, we will try and muddle through »

His considerable and proven talents notwithstanding, the post-Last King of Scotland phase of Forest Whitaker‘s career has been rough, to put it in layman’s terms. The past four years have seen him take on Vantage Point, Repo Men, Our Family Wedding, Powder Blue, and Street Kings, all either complete failures or reported as such — and, perhaps even worse, containing performances that are entirely forgotten. And a Criminal Minds spin-off? Really? Whatever needs to pay the bills, I guess, but this guy’s got on Oscar; CBS dramas should be a last resort.
ScreenDaily is here to make matters a little less dire, telling us that he’ll be pairing with director Roland Joffe on The Archbishop and the Antichrist, a prison-set, slightly fictional story revolving around South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu. In the film — which Joffe himself adapted from Michael Ashton‘s play — the beloved activist has “a »
