Superheroes of Suburbia | Someone's Daughter, Someone's Son | BBC Proms 2011: Human Planet Prom | America's Got Talent | Big Love | Alan Carr: Chatty Man | The Rob Brydon Show

Superheroes of Suburbia

7.35pm, Channel 4

It's doubtful that Lois Lane or Mary Jane ever waved off Superman or Spider-Man with the words "Bye, be safe, don't do anything I wouldn't do", as wife Julie does for her husband The Dark Spartan, aka 27-year-old Will from Torquay. Like the others in this fabulously quirky documentary, Will takes his costumed superhero duties entirely seriously – despite the fact that he has yet to stop any crime. There is darkness and melancholy here, rumbling quietly below the surface, but it never threatens to unbalance Christian Watt's funny, original and very English film. Superb. Ali Catterall

Someone's Daughter, Someone's Son

9pm, ITV1

Just because a documentary is hard-hitting (such as the fly-on-the wall Strangeways earlier this year »

'Rob Brydon Show' pips Alan Carr's 'Chatty Man'

24 July 2011 1:04 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Rob Brydon's talkshow was more popular than Alan Carr's on Friday night, but could not match its first series opener, according to the latest overnight data. BBC Two's The Rob Brydon Show premiered with 1.61m (8.3%) between 10pm and 10.30pm, clashing with Alan Carr: Chatty Man which averaged 1.4m (7%) between 9.30pm and 10.30pm (+1: 229k). BBC One's My Family rallied to 3.99m (19.1%) at 9pm, after which another repeat of Miranda fetched 3.75m (18%). The One Show also improved to 3.09m (16.5%) at 7pm, before 2.66m (13.4%) chose The Good Cook at 7.30pm and A Question of Sport quizzed 2.62m (11.8%) at 8.30pm.

'Doctor Who' Matt Smith: 'Doctor would prefer chess to sex'

15 July 2011 7:58 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Doctor Who star Matt Smith has joked that the Timelord would prefer a game of chess to having sex. The actor was asked on Alan Carr: Chatty Man whether The Doctor has ever had a night of passion in the Tardis. "No. The Doc's idea of an orgy is playing chess with an ostrich," he replied. "His brain doesn't work in that way. He would find it weird and peculiar. He finds women peculiar. He is quite asexual." Smith added that he hopes show bosses will bring back former Timelords such as Colin Baker and David Tennant when the (more) »

Killed By Coyotes

8pm, Nat Geo Wild

In 2009, teenage Canadian folk singer Taylor Mitchell achieved some fame unrelated to her burgeoning musical career. Out hiking in a popular national park she was set upon and fatally injured by two or three coyotes, making her the first American adult to be killed by that wild canine species. Still the only grownup to suffer such a fate, there have been a number of largely non-fatal attacks on children, so this documentary isn't trying to get us all to lock our doors and ride out the impending coyote uprising. What it does is try to get to the bottom of a tragic and so far unique event. Phelim O'Neill

Tom Hardy on Playing Bane in The Dark Knight Rises

22 February 2011 2:11 PM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Thanks for this update, Tom Hardy! You have no idea what we’re talking about?

Well, here’s the thing – the actor recently appeared on Alan Carr: Chatty Man talk show (it airs in the UK) and revealed a few things that we can expect from the upcoming Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises where he plays Bane.

Here’s what he had to say:

“Have you seen Joel Schumacher’s Batman & Robin? Doesn’t look very menacing does he? Christopher Nolan will revisit the character so I wouldn’t go by that at all. I’m going to need to bulk up a lot for it. That’s a lot of weight to put on and I’ve got to start shooting in May. I’ve got to go up to about 13 or 14 stone. I’m 12 and a bit now, so I only have a few months to do that. »

Tom Hardy Briefly Discusses Bane, Gimp Masks

22 February 2011 8:22 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Tom Hardy, all tatted up and with nowhere to go, recently showed up on a British chat show called “Alan Carr: Chatty Man” (cause, see, his name is Alan Carr, and he’s the host of a chat show, get it?), and briefly talked to the cheeky host about playing Bane in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming “The Dark Knight Rises”, set for release in 2012. According to Hardy, he expects to start shooting the film in May, which means a lot of bulking up to do is in his immediate future. He also briefly discusses Joel Schumacher’s “Batman and Robin”, which also featured Bane as a villain, and assures fans that his and Nolan’s version of Bane won’t be as campy. Hardy will be joining Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises”, with Christian Bale returning as Batman, possibly for the last time. »

Tom Hardy Talks “Bane” and Hits The Gym

22 February 2011 7:30 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

We know that Tom Hardy has it in him to bulk up for a role (Bronson) and we would hardly expect Christopher Nolan to take a “Vinnie Jones in a muscle suit as Juggernaut” approach to Bane for The Dark Knight Rises and it therefore comes as no surprise at all to hear that Hardy is getting himself in shape in time to play Bane when shooting starts in late spring.

While appearing on Alan Carr: Chatty Man in the UK, Hardy confirmed that he would not be going for the gimp-mask look used by Joel Schumacher in Batman & Robin and that Nolan will “revisit that territory entirely”. Apparently he is planning to add about 30 pounds to his body weight and you can see the beginnings of his new exercise regime in the clip below. If you cannot view the Hardy interview with Alan Carr on the Latino Review site, »

Tom Hardy Talks Briefly About Playing Bane in The Dark Knight Rises

21 February 2011 6:12 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In case anyone, for any reason whatsoever, had concerns that Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises would have a lot in common with Joel Schumacher's Batman and Robin (you know, outside of featuring characters named Batman and Bane), Tom Hardy is here to put those fears to rest. In a recent interview with the UK's Channel 4 talk show Alan Carr: Chatty Man, the actor slated to play the Batman foe confirmed: "Chris Nolan, again, will revisit that territory entirely so I wouldn't go by that [Schumacher's Batman and Robin]. Plus, that's a lot of weight to put on and I've got to start shooting in May. So I've got to get back up to that size again [presumably "again" referring to his bulked turn in Bronson] and I've got to get up to about 13-and-a-half or 14 stone [approx. 200 lbs.]. I'm 12-and-a-bit now [approx. 170 lbs.], so I've got three months to do that." To check out a video of the interview, hit the jump. Hardy »

Tom Hardy Talks Bane in The Dark Knight Rises

21 February 2011 5:14 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tom Hardy recently appeared on Alan Carr's Channel 4 talk show Alan Carr: Chatty Man, which airs in the UK (Thanks to Batman-News.com for the heads up). The actor talked for the first time about playing Bane in Christopher Nolan's upcoming The Dark Knight Rises, and while he didn't have a whole lot to say about the plot of this highly anticipated sequel, he did drop a few hints at what we can expect.

Tom Hardy stated that this version of Bane will be a lot more threatening.

"Have you seen Joel Schumacher's Batman & Robin? Doesn't look very menacing does he? Christopher Nolan will revisit the character so I wouldn't go by that at all. I'm going to need to bulk up a lot for it. That's a lot of weight to put on and I've got to start shooting in May. I've got to go up to about 13 or 14 stone. »

Updated: Tom Hardy Talks A Little More About Playing Bane In The Dark Knight Rises!

21 February 2011 1:41 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

After talking to Samuel L. Jackson about The Avengers last week, it was Tom Hardy's turn to appear on British chat show, Alan Carr: Chatty Man, this time. The show is still on as I type this, but I managed to quickly transcribe what he had to say when asked about his role as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. The following transcript is as accurate as possible. "Have you seen the Joel Shumacher Batman and Robin? Doesn't look very menacing does he?" [Laughs] When asked whether or not he'll be donning a similar "gimp" mask in the upcoming movie, he paused for a few seconds as if struggling to find an answer until finally replying with the following joke: "Well...only if I feel like it!" Continuing to talk about the previous version of Bane, the actor then went on to emphasise that it won't be anything like that »

James Corden 'wanted to call baby Mister'

23 January 2011 8:31 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

James Corden has declared that he wanted to name his baby Mister. The Gavin & Stacey comedian, who is expecting his first child with fiancée Julia Carey, said that his unusual suggestion for the baby's name was immediately rejected. Speaking on Alan Carr: Chatty Man, Corden revealed that the couple do not want to find out the baby's sex before its birth - expected in April - but said that they have been busy drawing up a list of potential names. "I had a name which I can tell you about as it's been vetoed, but I quite liked it and you'll understand why it got vetoed when you (more) »
