Lindsay Lohan claims she was almost in The Avengers

1 April 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Lindsay Lohan has claimed that she was in line for a role in The Avengers.

MTV reports that Lohan discussed her dashed hopes for a role in Joss Whedon's acclaimed superhero movie, during this week's episode of documentary series Lindsay.

20 actors who almost got the part: Katniss, Loki, Bond and Batman

Lohan reportedly complained that her manager failed to push hard enough at the audition process, which led to "an unknown" being cast in her place.

Although she does not name the part or the actress, many have speculated that she is referring to Cobie Smulders, who played Shield agent Maria Hill.

Filming on Whedon's sequel, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, began last month at Shepperton Studios, with additional footage shot in Italy and South Korea.

Lindsay Lohan Does Winter Chic Right in a Fur-Collared Coat

25 March 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's always so nice to see Lindsay Lohan not dressed like a hot mess. Things have been on the up-and-up for the Own show star since her latest rehab stint, but her previous fashion history was filled with far more misses than this winter wear hit. Yes, this cold weather combo The Canyons star is sporting still has her signature mix-and-match style, but the pieces are each fantastic, creating an overall impressive effect. For us, the focal point of this ensemble is definitely the army green, fur-collared winter jacket. It's sturdy and warm without being too puffy or athletic-looking, and that's no easy task for city wear. But the white button down underneath is equally eye-grabbing. We love the futuristic »

Nicolas Cage Says It Sucks to be Famous

16 March 2014 11:19 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

While speaking to an audience of journalists, Nicolas Cage said that "it really sucks to be famous right now," referring to how some critics tend to review his films not based on the quality of the film, but on his personal life. "The critic who reviewed 'Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call . New Orleans,' incorporated how many homes I bought or sold into the review," he said. "What the hell does Lindsay Lohan's personal life have to do with her performance in 'The Canyons'? It should always be about the work itself. In my opinion, I don't want to see personal aspects of someone's life eclipse [their] work." Cage continued: "I started acting because I wanted to be James Dean. I saw him in 'Rebel Without a Cause,' 'East of Eden.' Nothing affected me . no rock song, no classical music . the way Dean affected in 'Eden. »

'Veronica Mars' and Kickstarter: Is this the future of movie financing?

16 March 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Now that the big-screen version of Veronica Mars has finally come out, it has turned out to be breezy, pulpy, enjoyable, disposable entertainment (Veronica attempts to solve the murder of a famous rock star in Amy Winehouse makeup…whom she happened to go to high school with!). And now that the film has proved, for the first time, that a movie funded by crowdsourcing (in this case, via Kickstarter) can readily make its money back — and perhaps even do better than that — one could, I suppose, choose to be cynical by viewing the entire phemonenon of the Veronica Mars movie »

Nicolas Cage: 'It sucks to be famous right now'

11 March 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Nicolas Cage has said that it "sucks" to be famous.

The 50-year-old actor has also hit out at celebrities who are "famous for famous's sake".

Speaking at SXSW, Cage said that he wanted to be an actor after seeing James Dean in Eden.

"It blew my mind. I was like, 'That's what I want to do'," explained the star. "This was before everyone had a thing called a smartphone, and before the advent of the celebutard - just being famous for famous's sake.

"I'm not complaining, but it really sucks to be famous right now."

Cage, who recently said that he didn't regret his movie role choices, added: "Now even the art of film criticism… now in the La Times, the critic who reviewed Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans incorporated how many homes I bought or sold into the review.

Nicolas Cage at SXSW 2014: 'It really sucks being famous right now'

Actor bemoans era of the 'celebutard' and slams critics for focusing on actors' personal lives instead of their acting

• Read more about film at SXSW

• Read a review of Joe

Nicolas Cage has said film critics must try harder to ignore an actor's fame when reviewing movies, or risk contributing to a culture where artists are known only for their celebrity and not their work in front of the camera.

Speaking at the SXSW festival in Austin, Cage lamented his own notoriety and the way it affected how his films are perceived. The actors who inspired him to learn his art, he suggested, didn't face the same indignity.

"I started acting because I wanted to be James Dean," Cage told an audience of journalists. "I saw him in Rebel Without a Cause, East of Eden. Nothing affected me – no rock song, no classical music – the way Dean affected in 'Eden'. »

Nicolas Cage at SXSW: ‘It Sucks to Be Famous Right Now’

10 March 2014 4:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nicolas Cage has a lot on his mind, and he wasn’t afraid to share his thoughts at a talk at SXSW Monday, moderated by his “Joe” writer-director David Gordon Green.

During the hour-long session, Cage talked about how his desire to become an actor stemmed from watching James Dean in “East of Eden” and “Rebel Without a Cause.” He then proceeded to discuss eloquently how film criticism has deteriorated and why it “sucks to be famous” nowadays.

Here are his quotes in full from the interactive festival:

“I started acting because I wanted to be James Dean. I saw him in “Rebel Without a Cause,” “East of Eden.” Nothing affected me — no rock song, no classical music — the way Dean affected in “Eden.” It blew my mind. I was like, “That’s what I want to do.” This was before everyone had a thing called a Smartphone, and before »

'Lindsay': What did you think of Lohan's new show?

9 March 2014 8:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Just so that we know "Lindsay" (Sundays at 9:00 p.m. on Own) is not a trashy reality show, somber black-and-white text greets us to set the stage. On July 30, 2013, Lindsay Lohan ended her 90-day stint in rehab. Four days later, she began filming this show. About two minutes after that, she started a deeply sublimated quest to make her handlers, sycophants and slave labor intensely crazy by stirring up drama in the most mundane tasks you can imagine. I half expected to see Lindsay arguing with the coin slots at the laundromat, but we can all assume Linsday does not do her own laundry.  At first, though, it's the calm before the storm. Lindsay is looking for an apartment in New York City, so she drives from one location to another while her minions remind her what she's doing and where she is and one suck-up pal tries to »

Lindsay Lohan is in the last-chance saloon again, and now it's all on TV

6 March 2014 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The life of Lindsay Lohan just got a whole lot more troubled, with Oprah Winfrey cutting her no slack on a new reality TV show. But is it all it may seem?

• Molly Smitten-Downes – a weaponised dose of Eurovision Britishness

Jennifer Lawrence can't stand up for falling down

Let's think back to a time when Lindsay Lohan's plight wasn't bone-chillingly upsetting. That is, admittedly, quite a long time ago; when she was just a wide-eyed starlet who couldn't drive a car properly, before you heard about the addictions and the arrests and the way that her parents couldn't be more aggressively awful if they maintained an artisanal puppy-murdering factory at the local orphanage.

How things have changed. Now, to think about Lindsay Lohan is to feel a moment of unbearable sadness. The same sadness you felt about Amy Winehouse, or the one you will invariably feel about Justin Bieber 18 months from now. »

Watch: Creepy Bret Easton Ellis Short Film/Dum Dum Girls Video 'Are You Okay'

6 March 2014 8:56 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Bret Easton Ellis, who penned "The Canyons," is no stranger to psychological thriller territory, but his new short film "Are You Okay" is certainly a bit removed from his past work. Written by Ellis and directed by acclaimed music video directors Ben and Alex Brewer (collectively known as "Brewer"), the short film/music video features the new single "Are You Okay?" by Dum Dum Girls and follows a psychologically disturbed young woman played by singer/guitarist Dee Dee Palmer. In an interview with Vice's music channel Noisey, Palmer cited "Dressed to Kill" by Brian De Palma (referred to as "De Palmer") as an inspiration before the film turned into something more original. That's certainly true, but the video plays less like "Dressed to Kill" by the "American Psycho" scribe and more like "Dressed to Kill" as directed by Shane Carruth. The odd, atmospheric short is available in full below. »

Watch: Dum Dum Girls Short Film 'Are You Okay' Written By Bret Easton Ellis, Starring Shiloh Fernandez

6 March 2014 7:28 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As you might surmise from recent gigs that include a still mysterious project for Kanye West, and Manson family TV series with Rob Zombie, "American Psycho" and "The Canyons" writer Bret Easton Ellis doesn't pen anything safe or easily digestible. And even when it comes to writing a short film for noise-pop outfit Dum Dum Girls, the result is appropriately surreal, eerie and creepy. The Sub Pop band has dropped "Are You Okay," an eleven-minute short film penned by Ellis, starring frontwoman Dee Dee Penny and Shiloh Fernandez, and directed by Brewer (no, not Craig Brewer, just Brewer). And it's a twisted little psychological thriller that starts with a therapy session and goes to some places that you'd probably just be better off watching yourself, but stick through to the end when it really dials up intensity. Didn't have your morning cup of coffee? This will provide the jolt you need. »

10 shockingly low Hollywood salaries, from Jonah Hill to Lindsay Lohan

6 March 2014 5:24 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's currently being reported that Barkhad Abdi earned just $65,000 (£38,880) for his BAFTA-winning role in the $55 million-budgeted Captain Philips.

The 28-year-old Somalian-born actor made his debut alongside Tom Hanks in the Oscar-nominated drama, and according to The New Yorker was reduced to living off per diems from studio Sony Pictures at the Beverly Hills Hotel while promoting the film.

Meanwhile it's estimated that Hanks made a staggering $50 million from his lead part in the Paul Greengrass film.

We find other surprisingly low movie salaries - from low-budgeted films to blockbusters, accepted by up-and-coming newbies to certified stars - below:

1. Jonah Hill - Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

Jonah Hill recently disclosed that he earned $60,000 (£36,200) for his role in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, for which he was Oscar nominated.

The 30-year-old actor said on The Howard Stern Show that he was paid the five-figure sum "before commissions and taxes »

Lindsay Lohan lands '2 Broke Girls' guest spot

5 March 2014 7:39 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Apparently craving a generous studio audience more than a good script, Lindsay Lohan has landed a guest role on CBS' "2 Broke Girls." CBS announced on Wednesday (March 5) that Lohan will be appearing on the Monday, April 14 episode of Monday 8:30 comedy. After playing herself on "Glee" and "Anger Management," as well as in "Scary Movie 5," Lohan at least theoretically has a character to play on "2 Broke Girls." CBS says that Lohan will be playing Claire Guinness, "a soon-to-be-bride who asks Max and Caroline to make her wedding cake." As Max and Caroline are about to discover, Claire is really indecisive.  One thing Lohan can guarantee is that she'll be greeted with prolonged applause when she first appears on-screen.  The "2 Broke Girls" audience has been giving Jennifer Coolidge the Fonz treatment for over a year, roaring at her every initial appearance as if Sophie Kachinsky's arrival offers hope of humor. »

Rob Zombie creating Charles Manson TV series with 'American Psycho' author

3 March 2014 12:27 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) They say we’re in a golden age of television. Visionary creators are getting the opportunity to build intricate stories featuring complex characters doing morally questionable things. As such, some pretty big names are moving into that medium, especially when you take into account the rise of limited series. Variety reports that two interesting names will join forces for a Charles Manson series produced by Alcon Television for Fox. Those two creators? Bret Easton Ellis and Rob Zombie. Ellis will write the series for Zombie to direct based on the infamous cult leader whose followers murdered seven people in Los Angeles on Aug. 6, 1968. Manson, who has been in jail since the trials ended, has become a fascinating figure for many people, including Zombie. The series will follow various diverse characters leading up to the murders. “I have been obsessed with this insane story since I was a kid, so »

34th Annual 'Razzie Awards' Winners!

2 March 2014 11:08 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The results are in, the envelopes have been opened, and the "winners" of the 34th Razzie Awards have been unveiled in ceremonies held at Hollywood's coolest new venue - just down the street from Sunday night's Oscars - IgnitedSpaces. The hour long show handed out at least one statuette to four of the five Worst Picture nominees, but Adam Sandler and his unfunny follow up Grown Ups 2 went home empty-handed.

Taking three of the top awards was the star-studded, snicker-free sketch comedy Movie 43, which "won" for Worst Screenplay (written by at least 19 people), Worst Director ("credited" to 13 people), and Worst Picture. Tying with 43, and also "winning" 3 gold spray-painted trophies, was the Will Smith and Jaden Smith sci-fi fiasco After Earth. Dad Will Smith took Worst Supporting Actor, son Jaden Smith was named Worst Lead Actor, and the combination of father & son, described in the ceremony as being "stranded »

Right before the Academy Awards announces its winners, the 34th Annual Razzie Awards has unveiled the list of its own winners for the worst achievement in film for 2013. Taking the prize for the Worst Picture of the year is "Movie 43," beating out such films as "After Earth," "Grown Ups 2," "The Lone Ranger" and "A Madea Christmas." The movie also won for Worst Director and Worst Screenplay. The theme of this year's Razzies focused on the Smith family, with Jaden Smith winning Worst Actor and Will Smith winning for Worst Supporting Actor for "After Earth." The father-son team also won in the Worst Screen Combo category.
