Bruce Dern, 82, Is in 'Incredibly Good Spirits' After Fall While Jogging
Bruce Dern took a tumble on Friday but a source tells People he is recovering.

“He’s an avid jogger. He jogs every single day and this was likely a fall while jogging,” the source says of the 82-year-old actor.

Despite his love for fitness, Dern’s fall at Silver Lake Reservoir in Los Angeles did not leave him without any injuries.

“[The injury] is probably a broken hip. He’s in incredibly good spirits,” says the source, who adds that Dern is in no pain and already back at home.

Dern is starring in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Hunter Killer review – Gerard Butler's sub commander is all at sea

Butler’s naval maverick investigates simultaneous torpedo attacks on Us and Russian submarines in a long, loud game of Battleships

When we last encountered Gerard Butler, in the semi-enjoyably derivative Den of Thieves, he was rerunning Al Pacino’s old Heat moves. Tonight, Matthew, cinema’s loudest Scotsman will be impersonating The Hunt for Red October-era Alec Baldwin.

Swerving any lawsuit that might have followed from calling his character, say, Jack Bryan, Butler’s maverick sub commander has been assigned the no less no-nonsense name of Joe Glass. Joe has an intense rep. “He never went to Annapolis!” a Pentagon functionary gasps. “I heard he once punched his Co,” gossips a passing seaman. Glass is first seen tracking elk with manly bow and arrow; you’re surprised the filmmakers didn’t go the whole alpha hog and have a shirtless Butler best the poor creatures in an arm wrestle.

Oscar for Killmonger? Top 4 reasons Michael B. Jordan (‘Black Panther’) could be a contender

Oscar for Killmonger? Top 4 reasons Michael B. Jordan (‘Black Panther’) could be a contender
Comic book movies aren’t usually Oscar bait, but “Black Panther” could change that this year. The size and demographics of the motion picture academy are gradually expanding, and we’ve seen genre movies contend in top categories in recent years like “Avatar” (2009), “Mad Max: Fury Road” (2015) and “Get Out” (2017). But while “Black Panther” has looked like a potential Best Picture contender almost since its release (it currently ranks in the top 10 in our odds), what about for acting?

Among the cast members, Michael B. Jordan probably stands the best chance at the Oscars for his role as villain Erik Killmonger. In fact, six of the Expert journalists we’ve polled think he’ll be nominated, and two of them even think he’ll win: Claudia Puig (Kpcc) and Glenn Whipp (La Times). Here are four reasons why I think they might be on the right track.

Exclusive Interview – Actor-producer Lee Kholafai talks Glass Jaw

In an exclusive interview, Flickering Myth sat down with actor-producer Lee Kholafai to talk his role in Glass Jaw and his cross over into producing the boxing feature film.

Can you tell us a bit about where you lived ahead of Los Angeles, and what it was like growing up there?

Hi Flickering Myth, it is a pleasure to do this interview with you. Thank you for having me. I am from the bottom of the Us map in Mobile, Alabama. It was a lot of fun growing up there. My life was basically backyard football and playing outside until it was pitch dark. It was a small town and manners were always taught to be important. To respect others, always offer to help, and to always be thankful. I just wish it was closer so that I could visit more often. I always say that I am from the other La,

Actor and director George Clooney was selected this past June as the 46th honoree. Before him it was actress Diane Keaton in 2017 and composer John Williams in 2016. Prior to picking Williams, the AFI had only chosen actors, actresses and directors starting way back in the 1970s when the recipients were director John Ford (1973), actor James Cagney (1974), director/actor Orson Welles (1975), director William Wyler (1976), actress Bette Davis (1977), actor Henry Fonda (1978), and director Alfred Hitchcock (1979).

Movie Review – Venom (2018)

Venom, 2018.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer.

Starring Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Jenny Slate, Scott Haze, Michelle Lee, Sope Aluko, Reid Scott, Sam Medina, Jared Bankens, Wayne Pére, and Woody Harrelson.

Synopsis:

When Eddie Brock acquires the powers of a symbiote, he will have to release his alter-ego “Venom” to save his life.

Really, Sony and Marvel should have just called this origin story of Venom (the highly popular antihero/villain from many Spider-Man universes) Tom Hardy. His performance, which seems to channel well-respected actors running the gamut from Jim Carrey to Al Pacino to Adam Sandler to his own trademark mumbling, is nothing short of bizarrely wondrous, and while I am fully aware the Razzies do a terrible job at giving awards to the actual worst movies of the year, Tom Hardy will be receiving a nomination here for playing symbiote host and investigative journalist Eddie Brock.

Bruce Dern replaces Burt Reynolds in Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Deadline is reporting that Bruce Dern is set to reunite with his The Hateful Eight director Quentin Tarantino on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, with Dern taking over the role originally earmarked for his long time friend, the late Burt Reynolds.

Reynolds originally signed on to portray George Spahn, the owner of the ranch where Charles Manson and his cult followers lived during the infamous 1969 Manson Family murders. However, the screen legend passed away weeks before he was due to shoot his scenes for the movie, with Dern now stepping in as his replacement.

Bruce Dern Replaces Burt Reynolds in Tarantino's Once Upon a Time
Quentin Tarantino has found his replacement for Burt Reynolds in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Sadly, Reynolds, who passed away earlier this month, didn't get the chance to film his scenes in the Pulp Fiction director's latest. So, Tarantino was forced to turn elsewhere and he's tapped another 70s movie star in the form of Bruce Dern. This is a move that makes a great deal of sense, not only because Dern is, himself, a great actor, but because Dern and Reynolds were actually friends in real-life for years prior to the actor's passing.

Bruce Dern will play George Spahn, the real-life figure who housed Charles Manson and his followers at his ranch prior to their string of grisly murders. Spahn was nearly blind at the time and some of Manson's female followers aided him as part of the arrangement, even going so far as to sleep with him.

Bruce Dern Will Replace Burt Reynolds in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

It was a shock to learn that Burt Reynolds had passed away. I hoped that he already had already shot his scenes for Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, but that wasn’t the case.

According to Deadline, Tarantino has cast Bruce Dern in the role that Reynolds was supposed to play. The two actor previously worked together on The Hateful Eight. I’ve been a fan of Dern for years, so it’s awesome to see that he’s joined the film.

Dern will play George Spahn in the film and he joins one hell of a great ensemble cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, Kurt Russell, Dakota Fanning, James Mardsen, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Timothy Olyphant, Damian Lewis, Lena Dunham, Emile Hirsch, Luke Perry, Scoot McNairy and James Remar.

Bruce Dern Replaces Burt Reynolds in Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’
Quentin Tarantino has found a legendary replacement for the late Burt Reynolds in his Hollywood-centric new film.

Veteran screen star Bruce Dern will step in for Reynolds in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” an impossibly starry ensemble tale about an actor and his stunt double navigating a changing Hollywood as the Manson family terrorizes Los Angeles. It’s set to hit theaters on July 26, 2019.

Reynolds was expected to play George Spahn, a canyon ranch owner who rented his land spread to Charles Manson and his followers. Many historical accounts said the ranch served as a headquarters of sorts, and was the site of Manson’s indoctrination for the wayward young people he convinced to do his bidding.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt play the actor and stunt man, respectively. The film marks Tarantino’s first ever major studio effort after a long relationship with disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein.
