‘Animal Kingdom’ Star Shawn Hatosy on Following in Ben Mendelsohn’s Footsteps (Video)

2 August 2016 6:43 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The cast of TNT’s “Animal Kingdom” had the unique challenge of interpreting characters that had recently been played — to great acclaim — by other actors. The series is based on the 2010 Australian film of the same name, but the very natures of the different mediums necessitated some changes. “That’s the trick with Pope, who in the movie was beautifully played by Ben Mendelsohn,” Shawn Hatosy told TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell. “He was much darker throughout. But it was only a two-hour movie. For 10 hours, we really tried to find a balance where an audience can almost be sympathetic »

‘Ice Age: Collision Course’ Review Roundup: Critics Mostly Cold on Toon Sequel

19 June 2016 1:23 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The newest “Ice Age” is out next month, and at least a couple critics seem to wish the franchise would hurry up and go extinct. Writing for The Wrap, Alonso Duralde opens his review by calling the series as a whole “so blandly forgettable that parents could probably show an earlier entry to their kids and pretend it’s the new one.” He continues, writing that the fifth installment in the prehistoric saga lacks “laughs, energy and sharp edges in equal degrees to its predecessors” and “takes huge strides in the hotly-contested race to be 2016’s Most Irrelevant Sequel.”

Jacki Weaver Says That Hollywood Isn’t Ageist: ’60 is the new 40′

18 June 2016 2:16 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jacki Weaver, known for her breakout role in “Animal Kingdom,” recently spoke out about how the industry has been so welcoming to her. As opposed to many actresses who have spoken out about the lack of roles or how their looks affect their jobs, the 69-year-old Australian actress is declaring that “60 is the new 40.”

“There are lots of great roles for women my age,” she told The Daily Telegraph, adding that she hasn’t faced any opposition from Hollywood. “I have never come across any of that. Remember, I am in my late-60s and under 5ft, so maybe those sorts of things don’t apply to someone like me. Perhaps it happens to younger actors.”
