Ike Barinholtz, 37

Actor-writer-producer

He plays daffy on “The Mindy Project,” but Barinholtz is a master of multitasking. He writes and produces on “Project,” recurs on HBO’s “Eastbound & Down” and FX’s “The League” and lends his voice on Hulu’s “The Awesomes.” But his recent resume doesn’t end there; the rangy Chicagoan has roles lined up in “The Nest” and “Angry Birds,” and got a thrill out of appearing in “Neighbors” this year because he got to be “in a movie with Zac Efron after being mistaken for him for so many years.” On the set, Barinholtz says he witnesses great leadership every day.

Kenya Barris, 40

Barris sold numerous pilots over the years, but they never went to series. With ABC’s “Black-ish,” he decided to throw off the filters and create his most honest and autobiographical work, and he was rewarded with his biggest success. »

Russell Brand Says He's "Not Interested In Making Money Any More," Which "Probably" Means He'll Give Up Acting

27 October 2014 7:20 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While in the U.S. Russell Brand is still mostly viewed as an eccentric British import, perhaps best known for playing the blurred out rocker Aldous Snow in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and "Get Him To The Greek," he's a bonafide star in the UK. The comedian, author, and actor has more recently made headlines for a different kind of work in front of camera. Via YouTube, he's launched "The Trews" (a mashup of True News), wherein Brand pontificates on the issues of the day in his own unique manner. Recently taking to railing against the current economic and political machinations of the Western world, Brand reveals he's ready to give up his day job to pursue his beliefs full time. In a recent talk with The Financial Times, promoting his new book "Revolution," Brand, a millionaire who was chauffeured to the interview, says that dollars and cents don't mean much to him. »

Trailer for Elijah Wood's Set Fire To The Stars

19 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A trailer has been released for Elijah Wood's new film Set Fire to the Stars. The film is set in the 1950s, and Wood plays an aspiring poet named John M. Brinnin "who has his ordered world shaken when he embarks on a week-long retreat to save his hell raising hero, Dylan Thomas." He has basically been given the task of coordinating the first trip to the Us for Thomas, who is played by Celyn Jones. It's a road trip movie that kind of has the same plot as the Jonah Hill and Russell Brand comedy Get Him to the Greek, only this one centers on a poet instead of a rockstar, and it's a black and white movie that takes place in the '50s.

The movie was directed by Andy Goddard (Downton Abbey), and it looks like an amusing and fun film. It premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival, »

Elijah Wood Wrangles a Poet in UK Trailer for 'Set Fire to the Stars'

13 October 2014 11:52 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"How much trouble can one poet be?" In what feels like an independent, artsy version of Get Him to the Greek, the first trailer from the United Kingdom for Set Fire to the Stars has arrived. The true story focuses on literary sensation Dylan thomas, a rock star poet of sorts who was beloved and revered in the 1950s before his life was cut short all too soon. In the film, we find Elijah Wood as John M. Brinnin, a critic and fellow poet from America who is put in charge of managing Thomas (played by Celyn Jones, who also co-wrote the script) as he goes on tour in the United States. It looks dry, but lively and worth a look. Here's the UK trailer for Andy Goddard's Set Fire to the Stars, originally from The Guardian: Set Fire to the Stars is directed by Andy Goddard ("Downton Abbey, »

Director’s Notebook: How 'Rear Window' and 'Ocean's Eleven' Inspired the Best Scene in ‘Neighbors’

24 September 2014 6:42 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

In this monthly column we spotlight new Blu-ray/DVD releases by interviewing directors about the scenes that stood out most for them while making their movies. This month, we talk to Nicholas Stoller about the Seth Rogen/Zac Efron comedy Neighbors (on sale September 23). Known best for doing comedies that explore relationships, Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek, The Five-Year Engagement) continues that trend with Neighbors, but this time he also highlights what it means to get old and suddenly be thrust with responsibilities. In the movie Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne have a newborn baby but struggle to push away temptation to party like they did in the prebaby days. Things don’t get any better when a fraternity suddenly shows up next door...

Jason Schwartzman and Elisabeth Moss Play the Field in 'Listen Up Philip' Trailer

16 September 2014 12:22 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Jason Schwartzman and Elisabeth Moss play a couple who are pretty much sick of each other in the first full trailer for the dark comedy Listen Up Philip.  Schwartzman (Saving Mr. Banks) stars as the eponymous novelist, who is invited by his favorite author to his home in the woods. This doesn't exactly bode well for Philip's floundering relationship with his girlfriend (Moss, Get Him to the Greek), especially when Philip meets the author's fetching daughter (Krysten Ritter, Veronica Mars).  In one scene, Philip has a rather surprising response when he gets called out for bragging about his writing career.

Neighbors Deleted Scene Spells Trouble for Zac Efron’s Original Frat House

10 September 2014 9:52 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Universal Pictures has released the alternate opening scene of Neighbors online.  I loved director Nicholas Stoller’s (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Five-Year Engagement) new film when I saw it in theaters, but couldn’t help but think there were a ton of party images in the trailer that were absent from the film.  Now I know which scene many of them came from, this deleted opening scene that introduces us to the frat members and the house they burned down (necessitating their move to a new neighborhood).  This is actually only the first half of the deleted scene (which I've seen via iTunes extras), so it doesn't get into the explosive stuff yet.  But it’s still hilarious.  I actually think the whole movie is pretty great except for a few moments in the third act when they try to include unnecessary characters in the action.

'23 Jump Street' Is Happening; Original Directors Will Produce

9 September 2014 3:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures is moving forward with 23 Jump Street, a follow-up to this summer's 22 Jump Street, with Rodney Rothman coming aboard to write the screenplay. Be warned, there will be a few spoilers for those who haven't seen 22 Jump Street below, so read on at your own risk.

21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are overseeing the writing process as producers, alongside Neal H. Moritz and producers/stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, but they have not officially committed to directing the follow-up. Insiders claim the job is theirs if they want it.

At the end of 22 Jump Street, Ice Cube's Captain Dickson teased a possible sequel story with the line, "You two sons of bitches are going to medical school." The end credits offered a number of fake ideas for possible sequels, including culinary school, firefighter school, dance school and even a semester at sea. »

Watch: First Behind-The-Scenes Clip From Ondi Timoner's Russell Brand Documentary

8 September 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

American audiences know comedy superstar Russell Brand best from his roles as the drunk, self-appointed spiritualist, semi-airheaded Brit in box-office successes like “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Get Him to The Greek”, as well as his theatrical failures like the wholly unnecessary remake of “Arthur”. What they might not know is how active Brand is in the world of politics. His YouTube channel, which has around 500.000 subscribers, is full of videos where he uses his unique wit and energy to take down Fox News and various right-wing entities. Director Ondi Timoner’s ("Dig!," "We Live In Public") feature documentary about Brand, simply titled “Brand: The Film,” seems to cover the many facets of his eccentric personality, including his political leanings. In the first behind-the-scenes clip from the film, Brand and his friends, including OasisNoel Gallagher, talk about his aspirations to literally change the world via fame. Brand’s fisting analogy (no pun. »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

DVD Review – Bad Neighbours (2014)

8 September 2014 12:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bad Neighbours, 2014.

Directed by Nicholas Stoller.

Starring Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Dave Franco and Lisa Kudrow.

Synopsis:

A couple with a newborn baby face unexpected difficulties after they are forced to live next to a fraternity house.

Bad Neighbours is the latest film to star comedian Seth Rogen. Rogen tends to come out with two or three comedies a year, and for the most part the majority of them I have rather enjoyed. This time around he teams up with Zac Efron as they go head to head trying to one up each other throughout the film.

Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne play Mac and Kelly, a married couple with a new baby girl who have just moved into a great new house. Everything is fine until they have some unwelcome new neighbors move in next door. A college fraternity lead by Teddy (Zac Efron) sets up camp »

The Weinstein Company To Release One Chance On Yahoo Screen Before It Hits Theaters

21 July 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

On the night of June 9th 2007, a new television reality show called ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ went on air in the UK. On its first ever broadcast, a shy, unassuming man opened his mouth to sing the famous operatic aria ‘Nessun Dorma’, delivering a beautiful, stirring rendition that would change his life from that moment forward.

Swept up in the contagious emotion of Giacomo Puccini’s stunning aria, and the unlikely figure with crooked teeth and diluted confidence who had crooned it for them, the show’s three judges – Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan – stared in awe at what they had just witnessed, while the audience of 2,000 at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff erupted in a standing ovation.

Britain was instantly won over by Paul Potts, who was then working as a manager at the Port Talbot branch of The Carphone Warehouse, and followed him on his »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – July 7th 2014

I’m back! It’s been a long time and I apologise for that, moving house turned out to be a far far longer process than I anticipated or had been led to believe. Three weeks turned into six, six weeks turned into three months and now here we are.

Aside from the length of time it takes, moving house was a real eye opener in other areas too. Specifically in terms of how I inform you week on week of all of this wonderful content available to stream and then how you have to put up with lacklustre delivery from various ISPs.  I was living in someone else’s house on a connection that was not my own, not wanting to name names but there is one of the big three ISP’s in the UK which boasts about having one of, if not the, fastest broadband delivery on »
