Ben Gazzara obituary

Forceful actor who built a 60-year career in the Us and Europe

Few screen debuts have equalled the searing malevolence of Ben Gazzara's Iago-inspired Jocko De Paris in The Strange One (1957). The role, which he had created on stage, became forever associated with this intense graduate of New York's method school of acting.

Gazzara, who has died aged 81 of pancreatic cancer, continued his stage career in modern classics including Epitaph for George Dillon and as the humiliated and vengeful George in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? He also achieved popular acclaim through television series – notably Run for Your Life (1965-68) – and in movies for his friend John Cassavetes and other directors including Otto Preminger, Peter Bogdanovich, David Mamet, Todd Solondz and the Coen brothers.

Gazzara was born to Sicilian immigrants and grew up on Manhattan's lower east side. He began acting at the Madison Square Boys Club and

With that in mind he tells his agent Paul Andersen (Gazzara) he wants to try writing something different, something that doesn’t require him to think like a killer, something more romantic. Andersen clearly thinks this is career suicide and instead suggests taking a holiday.

Cheeky New Poster for Christopher Roth

Usually we wait until there are some solid details surrounding a film project before we start to report on them. But there are those rare cases when we see or hear something that gets our attention and keeps us on edge until we have something more to sink our teeth into. In this case we have a bare ass.

Bare asses are truly an attention getter, especially when it belongs to a female. We're big fans of the female bare ass around these parts, and a result the teaser poster for Max Sender's latest Italian thriller immediately caught our eye.

Not much is known about the film other than it stars Joaquim De Almeida as its title character and its tagline reads: It's hard to resist that little thrill you feel right before you go beyond the imaginary and "flirt" with reality.. We'll keep an eye on things for you.

Meet Max Sender's Christopher Roth

Writer-director Max Sender is in post-production on the new thriller Christopher Roth . Joaquim De Almeida ( Desperado ) plays the eponymous role and, to be honest, there's little we know about the film other than what we can glean from the Italian production's Facebook page and official site . The former has a number of behind-the-scenes stills and some footage from the last day of shooting. Ben Gazzara ("Jackie Treehorn" from The Big Lebowski ) co-stars with Anna Galiena. The film's tagline goes like this: It's hard to resist that little thrill you feel right before you go beyond the imaginary and "flirt" with reality. Right-o. Could this be a Mr. Brooks -esque thriller? We'll do some digging and see if we can drum up some more details....
