Spotlight on the Stars: Jennifer Lawrence

19 November 2014 3:51 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s new spotlight piece, I wanted to again take a look at one of the biggest A listers in the industry…Jennifer Lawrence. I’ve written about her once or twice before, but as a legitimate megastar who’s also still a bit of an up and comer, I figured she was perfect for this piece once again. She’s someone who’s powerful in Hollywood, grounded in a way that most young stars aren’t, and above all else…one of the best actresses in the business, bar none, with an Oscar on her mantle to prove it. Lawrence consistently does interesting work and is more than worth checking in on here and there. As such, she’s perfect for the spotlight today, so let us dive in. Lawrence first got her start, like many young up and comers, on television. Guest spots on Cold Case, »

Ron Perlman Added to Alex Garcia’s ‘The Jesuit’ (Exclusive)

4 October 2014 2:22 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rio De Janeiro — Boarding late in the day, Ron Perlman (“Hellboy,” “Sons of Anarchy,” “Drive”) has completed the key cast of Alfonso Pineda Ulloa’s “The Jesuit,” L.A.-based Mexican producer Alex Garcia’s biggest action-thriller to date at Ag Studios, departing from a Paul Schrader screenplay.

A road movie actioner, “The Jesuit,” turns on an ex-con, wrongly imprisoned, called the Jesuit, whose ex-wife is murdered by her boyfriend who then kidnaps his son. The Jesuit devises an elaborate plan to save his son and avenge the murder, embarking on a revenge rampage from Texas through Mexico to its deep, deep jungle in Mexico’s south. Perlman plays “The Jesuit’s” out-and-out villain.

“As is most always the case, I was impressed by the writing and the people involved in the process,” Perlman commented on his casting.

“And of course, it didn’t hurt that it was shooting in Mexico, »

Screen Legend with Longest Film Star Career Turns 97 Today

1 May 2014 2:59 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Danielle Darrieux turns 97: Darrieux has probably enjoyed the longest film star career in history (photo: Danielle Darrieux in ‘La Ronde’) Screen legend Danielle Darrieux is turning 97 today, May 1, 2014. In all likelihood, the Bordeaux-born (1917) Darrieux has enjoyed the longest "movie star" career ever: eight decades, from Wilhelm Thiele’s Le Bal (1931) to Denys Granier-Deferre’s The Wedding Cake / Pièce montée (2010). (Mickey Rooney has had a longer film career — nearly nine decades — but mostly as a supporting player in minor roles.) Absurdly, despite a prestigious career consisting of more than 100 movie roles, Danielle Darrieux — delightful in Club de femmes, superb in The Earrings of Madame De…, alternately hilarious and heartbreaking in 8 Women — has never won an Honorary Oscar. But then again, very few women have. At least, the French Academy did award her an Honorary César back in 1985; additionally, in 2002 Darrieux and her fellow 8 Women / 8 femmes co-stars shared Best Actress honors »
