Kristen Wiig on The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Singing Bowie, and Sneaky iPhone Pics

24 December 2013 10:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Kristen Wiig is in not one but three movies this holiday season — as a phone sex voice in Her ("Choke me with that dead cat!"), as Steve Carell's less-than-brainy love interest Chani in Anchorman 2, and her most grounded role of the three, Ben Stiller's muse in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. (In one fantasy sequence, she sings "Major Tom" to help him find his courage.) Wiig chatted with Vulture about singing David Bowie, our obsession with documenting everything, and how she doesn't know how to use the Internet.You've acted before with your directors — Drew Barrymore in Whip It, for instance. Did it make you want to do it yourself? Do you want to direct?Yeah! I would definitely love to direct. It's what I'm hoping, planning on doing. And soon. I don't think I would have the starring role in the film. I think for »

Watch (If You Dare) The First Trailer For Adam Sandler & Drew Barrymore's Rom-Com 'Blended'

18 December 2013 7:00 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Oh, the perils of being a female filmmaker in Hollywood. Finally making her directorial debut after a lifetime in front of the camera with 2009’s charming “Whip It,” Drew Barrymore has struggled to launch a feature length follow-up and though she is returning to the romantic comedy well, it’s not in the manner one would hope. Way back in 2011, Barrymore attached herself as a director to the adaptation of rom-com novel “How To Be Single” by Liz Tuccillo. Here we are nearly three years later and though Barrymore is still producing—through her Flower Films—she has since vacated the director’s chair and Variety reports up-and-comer Christian Ditter will now helm the film for New Line. And because that year isn’t busy enough, the film has been scheduled for a 2015 release with shooting set for next year. Don’t fret though, Barrymore still has some skin in »

Disney Buys Rights To Indiana Jones Films

6 December 2013 4:45 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Whip it good, for Variety is reporting that Disney has taken control of another beloved franchise in the form of the Indiana Jones series.While this isn't a super surprise, given last year's Lucasfilm deal that saw the rights to the character go to the Mouse House, this at least overcomes one of the hurdles about actually getting a new film from the series out into theatres. It's not such a bad deal for both - Disney gets (had?) rights to all future iterations along with their marketing opportunities, while Paramount will continue to have the rights to distribute the first four films, as well as profiting in part on any future installments.So, basically, the gates are open for the new owners to do their thing,...

‘The Last American Virgin’ Blu-ray Review

21 September 2013 12:44 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Lawrence Monoson, Steve Antin, Diane Franklin, Joe Rubbo, Kimmy Robertson, Louisa Moritz | Written and Directed by Boaz Davidson

I’ve long been a fan of The Last American Virgin, no doubt due to my obsessions as a teenager with the ingenue that is Diane Franklin. Having enjoyed Better Off Dead (where she played a French exchange student Monique Junot) and then caught her “stirring” performance in Amityville 2: The Possession I was eager to see more of the sctresses ample charms. And that’s how I discovered Boaz Davidson’s The Last American Virgin

The film follows three friends, Gary (Monoson), Rick (Antin) and David (Rubbo), as they stumble from one sexual escapade to the other, taking in nymphomaniac Latin dance teacher Carmilla (Moritz), a red-headed hooker who gives them crabs and a bevy of teenage girls eager and willing to give it up for a line of coke and a dance. »

Kristen Wiig and Fabrizio Moretti Split

25 July 2013 4:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Kristen Wiig and Fabrizio Moretti have decided to part ways after dating for over a year-and-a-half. A source confirms to People that the pair have split but will remain on good terms. "It's completely amicable," says an insider. "They are friends." In July 2012, Wiig, 39, told Marie Claire that she was "happier than I've ever been" because of "where I am now. Who [Moretti] is." Although the Despicable Me 2 star is notoriously tight-lipped about her private life, she was married to actor Hayes Hargrove for four years before the couple called it quits in 2009. She then dated producer Brian Petsos, whom she had known for 21 years. »

Ellen Page

3 July 2013 11:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

After her breakthough role in Juno, Ellen Page unexpectedly found herself on the Hollywood A-list. But she still prefers smaller, tougher movies – and speaking her mind

The day before Ellen Page and I meet up in Los Angeles, Barack Obama's administration makes a long overdue announcement: it will finally allow Plan B, a morning-after pill, to be made available to girls and women without a prescription. This move is, the New York Times reports with some understatement, "fraught with political repercussions for Obama".

This will sound absurd to most people who live in Britain, where the morning-after pill has been available without a prescription for over a decade. But in America, where certain politicians have about as much understanding of the realities of women's biology and contraceptive needs as a dung beetle, the issue of how much control a woman is allowed to have over her own body remains anachronistically fraught. »

Alan Myers, Former Devo "Whip It" Drummer, Dead at 58

27 June 2013 6:47 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

And the beat goes on. Former Devo drummer Alan Myers may have died after a battle with brain cancer on Monday, June 24, but his legacy as part of the "Whip It" band lives on. He was 58. Myers, who was the third -- and arguably most well-known -- drummer for the American New Wave band, joined the group in 1976 during the band's heyday, and helped anchor the beats of some of its biggest albums, including 1976's Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! [...] »

Devo drummer Alan Myers dies of brain cancer

Alan Myers, the former longtime drummer for the band Devo, best known for "Whip It," has died after a battle with brain cancer. He was 58.   Myers died Monday in Los Angeles, where he lived, Devo spokesman Michael Pilmer said Wednesday.   Myers was the band's drummer from 1976 to 1985 during Devo's heyday. The group was formed in Akron, Ohio, in the early 70s by Mark Mothersbaugh and Gerald Casale, and introduced themselves to the world in 1977 by making a spastic version of the Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction."   Casale told The Associated Press on Wednesday that without Myers, »

Questions and Answers With Ellen Page

30 May 2013 7:58 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Looks can be deceiving. Take, for example, Ellen Page. The 26-year-old actress stands only 5'1" tall but has made it clear through her choice of roles that she is a force to be reckoned with: In 2005's "Hard Candy," Page played a young girl who makes a pedophilic photographer pay for his distasteful taste. In "The East," out in limited release this weekend, Page again plays someone looking for revenge — this time, she stars as Izzy, a young woman who is part of an underground group seeking revenge by any means necessary on harmful corporations.

Page co-stars in the film alongside Brit Marling, who co-wrote the script with director Zal Batmanglij, and Alexander Skarsgard. We caught up with Page in New York City ahead of the movie's release to talk about her directorial ambitions, feminist roles and what she could contribute to an underground anti-corporate group.

"The East" was really an amazing movie, »

Ellen Page loves Jennifer Lawrence, "Whip It"

I won't lie: I read this HuffingtonPost interview knowing nothing about Ellen Page's new movie, The East. I read it as a fan of Ellen Page. In fact, the first few questions the interviewer asked got me depressed and not wanting anything to do with The East. (Except maybe look at pictures of Ellen Page at premieres.)

I skipped ahead to the fun parts. For example, did you know Ellen Page loved Drew Barrymore's Ever After? Amazing.

She goes on to say that her love of Drew Barrymore wasn't the only reason she chose to be in the superstar's directorial debut, and lesbian favorite, Whip It! — at least, not the only reason.

One of the saddest things I ever read on the internet was that Michelle Pfeiffer regretted doing Grease 2. I loved that cheese-tastic »
