Zach Galifianakis debuted a new clean-shaven look at the SAG Awards on Sunday night, appearing almost unrecognizable. Galifianakis, best known for his bearded, chubby alter-ego in The Hangover trilogy, shocked viewers when he appeared at the SAG Awards looking noticeably slimmer, with his long hair neatly pulled back into a small man-bun and his face […]

Zach, is that you? During the Screen Actors Guild Awards opening bit Sunday, the star-studded crowd of thespians offered humorous quips about their craft. While it was easy to spot Jennifer Aniston and winner Uzo Aduba, there was one face who didn't look familiar. "I am Zach Galifianakis and I am an actor," said the Birdman star as he turned around in his chair and looked into the camera. Only this Galifianakis was lacking his signature bushy beard, swapping it for a sleek bun and light stubble. Along with the facial hair flip-flop, the actor was showing off a much thinner physique. »

6th Update, Tuesday, 3 Pm: Rentrak Theatrical filed the weekend’s actuals with Warner Bros.’ American Sniper counting a four-week cume through yesterday of $110.4M. Talk about the spoils of war: American Sniper propelled the 2015 box office, in its first 19 days, 3.6% percent over the same frame last year with $667M. It stands to reason that this would be the highest-grossing four-day Mlk weekend of all-time with $248.5M after American Sniper broke a slew of records, read Eastwood’s career-high bow, best three-day opening ever during January and February. Previous Mlk record was 2009 with $231.5M when Sony comedy Paul Blart: Mall Cop zoomed up a four-day bow of $39.2M. American Sniper had the biggest theater average of the four-day weekend with $30,100, followed by Sony Classic’s Still Alice, which chalked up $20,685 PTA or $248K in 12 venues.
The consensus is that American Sniper is going to hold for another two weekends. Wide releases »

The vast column inches and pixels dedicated to Clint Eastwood's American Sniper of late may have questioned its celebratory portrayal of a man who took hundreds of lives and how it racked up an astonishing $90 million box office debut, but one aspect of the film's fallout has been overlooked entirely: Bradley Cooper is now a bona fide A-list movie star.
American Sniper's financial records keep stacking up. Best ever three-day opening for a Best Picture Oscar nominee, biggest ever January opening, an IMAX bow that beats 2012 blockbuster Prometheus and a career best for its 84-year-old director.
All this is vindication for Cooper, who picked up the film rights to Navy Seal sharp-shooter Chris Kyle's memoir in 2012 with a view to producing a film starring Chris Pratt in the lead role. Warner Bros backed the project on the proviso that Cooper himself play Kyle, while the star's Silver Linings Playbook »
In the summer of 2011 in an alternate universe, Bradley Cooper retires to his trailer on the set of his new movie and wearily checks his email. His latest movie “Green Lantern” has just opened. Opening weekend wasn’t so bad —the film grossed over $50 million— but it was a $200 million picture, and with poisonous reviews and word of mouth, even among the undiscerning geek crowd, signs are that the film will drop off fast (indeed, it would eventually take barely half its opening weekend number in the U.S, and make a little over $200 million worldwide). Bradley hadn’t been sure about taking the part: the script was ropey and unfinished, and it had meant passing on a smart sci-fi drama called “Limitless” and dropping out of the surefire hit sequel to “The Hangover” (he’d been replaced by a cheaper actor from the cast of “It’s Always Sunny »

Who's In It: Phil from The Hangover, Bradley Cooper; that girl from that movie, I think she dated Jude Law? Sienna Miller; plus, it was directed by Clint Eastwood (if you don’t know who he is, ask your dad).

If you guessed Wonder Woman, then congrats, you guessed correctly! As many of you know, Birdman star Zach Galifianakis is always good for a joke between his comedic film roles to his hilarious Between Two Ferns web series. It looks like he was up to his usual hijinks when MTV UK asked him about which superhero he'd like to play. Check out the video below to find out what the funny Galifianakis, who is best known for his role as Alan Garner in The Hangover trilogy, had to say about the Amazonian princess. Also, find out how much he actually thinks about superhero roles in general. What do you guys think? Doesn't seem like Galifianakis is against playing a superhero, but which superhero or supervillain would he be a good fit for? Or would you guys rather see him as a supporting player in an existing or upcoming comic book movie? »

The composer is working on the score for Marvel Studios' superhero film, according to Film Music Reporter.
Ant-Man released its first trailer this week.
Ant-Man will be released on July 17. »
We now know who will be providing the original scores for all of this year’s superhero movie releases. While Oscar-winning Gravity composer Steven Price was originally set to score Marvel’s Ant-Man, he departed the project when Edgar Wright exited the director’s chair (they worked together on The World’s End). Nevertheless, Film Music Reporter revealed today that Marvel and director Peyton Reed have enlisted composer Christophe Beck to take care of the score. Beck has plenty of experience with commercial fare, having composed the scores for films as varied as The Hangover, Frozen, and most recently Edge of Tomorrow. In addition to Ant-Man, his 2015 slate includes Terminator: Genisys, Hot Tub Time Machine 2, and Peanuts. The Marvel superhero pic opens in theaters on July 17th. Find out who’s composing the score for Fox’s The Fantastic Four after the jump. It’s been kind of a »

While Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon -- an idea that came from the actor himself when, in 1994, he told Premiere magazine that he’s worked with everybody -- has become the ultimate trivia game, it may be time to re-think who’s actually at the nexus.
Thanks in large part to Friends -- the former NBC sitcom now streaming on Netflix -- Aniston worked with a number of stars well before they were famous. And in the years since the series ended, Aniston has shared the screen with a few but key number of A-listers. But it wasn’t until she earned a 2015 Golden Globe nomination for her role in Cake that we realized she’s practically worked with everyone in Hollywood.

Bradley Cooper turns the big 4-0 Monday -- with plenty of reason to celebrate!
His newest film American Sniper hits theaters everywhere Jan. 16 and is generating some much-warranted Oscar buzz, meaning Bradley could be an Oscar-nominee for his third year in a row.
Et first met Bradley back in 2001, when the then-26-year-old actor landed his first major role in the hit TV series, Alias.
"It's like nothing I've ever seen on television – [I'm] totally blown away with it – it's hot, it's sexy, it's pumping, it's incredible."
"It's espionage, it's fast paced, but it's also about relationships," said Cooper of Alias. "Everybody's very ambiguous. You never really know who's the good guy and who's the bad guy and it constantly keeps you »
Even if “American Sniper” missed out on Golden Globe nominations, it still emerged as one of the big winners of the holiday season. Clint Eastwood’s drama about Navy Seal Chris Kyle has grossed a stellar $2.2 million since it opened in only four theaters on Christmas, and the Warner Bros. release expands on Jan. 16.
The Oscar best-actor race is especially overcrowded this year, but as ballots are due on Wednesday, voters should take a look — if they haven’t already — at Bradley Cooper’s career-best performance. It’s a transformation that had Kyle’s widow Taya in tears the first time she saw the film, and she’s been talking about how Cooper captured her husband’s essence. In the last few weeks, many actors, including Ben Affleck, Jane Fonda, Julia Roberts and Jonah Hill, have also been singing Cooper’s praises.
To play Kyle, Cooper spent six months working out 4.5 hours a day, »
