Taylor Kitsch’s film career did not get off to the best of starts in 2012, when John Carter, Battleship and Savages all disappointed at the North American box office. However, the actor, who shot to fame with his role as Tim Riggins on Friday Night Lights, chose wisely to try his hand at some smaller projects with more refined stories. He has two films set for May, the HBO drama The Normal Heart with Julia Roberts and Mark Ruffalo, and the film festival favourite The Grand Seduction, a Canadian comedy from director Don McKellar (Last Night).
The Grand Seduction feels like a modest, charming crowd-pleaser that will hopefully not get trampled over by blockbuster behemoths when it comes out on May 30th. In the remake of a 2003 French-Canadian film, Kitsch plays Dr. Paul Lewis, employed by the small Newfoundland town of Tickle Bay. Since the tiny, beleaguered population wants to »

A big mouth isn't always a problem; sometimes, it can be the solution.
That's the theme running through the trailer for the upcoming HBO film, "The Normal Heart." Directed by "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy from a play by Larry Kramer, the movie chronicles the beginning of the AIDS epidemic in the '80s.
"The Normal Heart" covers a similar timeframe as the Oscar-nominated "Dallas Buyers Club," but focuses on a gay man (Mark Ruffalo) who becomes an activist. He teams up with a doctor (Julia Roberts) to raise awareness and lobby politicians to care about.
Ruffalo is all fire and passion, while Roberts is the cool, no-nonsense physician. And they're just two members of a sterling cast, which also includes Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, and Jim Parsons. We have a feeling this will rake in the awards come Emmy time.
"The Normal Heart" premieres May 25 on HBO.
