Why Rockstar Stopped Hiring Celebrity Voice Actors

Matthew Byrd Oct 15, 2018

It turns out there's a good reason why Rockstar stopped hiring so many celebrities to voice Grand Theft Auto games.

Have you ever wondered why modern Rockstar games feature significantly fewer big name celebrity voice actors? Well, it turns out that Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser and others within the company simply got tired of dealing with their egos.

In an interview with Vulture, Houser recalled a time that he and Burt Reynolds argued about the direction of a Grand Theft Auto: Vice City scene. The argument apparently became quite heated and resulted in Reynolds yelling “Get the limey out of here.”

“I don’t want to speak ill of the dead, poor bugger,” says Houser, “but we don’t bring in name actors anymore because of their egos and, most important of all, because we believe we get a better sense of immersion using talented actors whose voices you don’t recognize.

Bad Times at the El Royale’s Drew Goddard Ready to Finally Check into Noir

David Crow Oct 12, 2018

Drew Goddard tells us about the allure of film noir during the making of Bad Times at the El Royale, and why it could only be set in 1969.

It’s a classic setup: seven strangers, six guests and one glorified bellhop, spend the night in a faded luxury hotel, and each of them is carrying at least one dangerous secret. It’s the stuff noir dreams are made of, including those of writer-director Drew Goddard.

The eclectic filmmaker confessed as much when chatted about Bad Times at the El Royale, a project whose conceit has stayed in Goddard’s mind ever since he created and worked on the first season of Netflix’s Daredevil. Indeed, it was during pitches for those early episodes when one of the all-time film noir classics, John Huston’s Key Largo, came up as a point of reference. As Goddard tells us,

PopPolitics: Why Trump Is Left Out of HBO’s ‘John McCain: For Whom the Bell Tolls’ (Listen)

  • Variety
Washington — The filmmakers behind the HBO documentary “John McCain: For Whom the Bell Tolls” interview family, friends, rivals and colleagues to capture the life of the Arizona senator, who is now battling brain cancer.

But the project, which debuts this weekend, does not include President Donald Trump. In hours of interviews, the filmmakers asked McCain about Trump, but chose not to dwell on the fissures between the two.

“It sucks the air out of the room and we wanted the attention to be on John,” Teddy Kunhardt, who made the film along with his brother George and father Peter, tells Variety‘s “PopPolitics” on SiriusXM. “When we walked around Arizona, he said something along the lines of ‘This is my last fight.’ We assumed he meant cancer. He said it is not about cancer. It is about bringing the Senate back to regular order, about working together in the Senate.

The Greatest Movie Music Of All Time

We’re heading into movie award season in Hollywood and around the world. There are lots of ingredients that go into making a successful film: an exciting and original script, a skillful director, and a lead actor and actress who put their heart and soul into a role. Add these together and you might get good box office sales and even pick up an award or two, but if you want a movie to be remembered for all time it needs one other ingredient: brilliant music. That’s certainly what these three films have!

The Magician Behind James Bond

Okay, so the first choice on our list isn’t a single movie but a whole series of them, but they are all known for their soundtrack as much as for their thrill-a-minute scripts. There are currently 25 James Bond films (if you count David Niven’s ‘Casino Royale’), each with its own theme tune.

Will ‘The Shape of Water’ be the ninth Best Picture Oscar champ not to win any of its three-plus acting nominations?

Will ‘The Shape of Water’ be the ninth Best Picture Oscar champ not to win any of its three-plus acting nominations?
The Shape of Water” is one of two Best Picture Oscar nominees with three acting nominations — the other being “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” — but star Sally Hawkins and supporting players Octavia Spencer and Richard Jenkins are not predicted to win any of them. If they indeed go 0-3 on Sunday and “The Shape of Water” takes the top prize, the fantasy drama will join eight other Best Picture champs that did not convert any of its three-plus acting nominations into wins.

“Birdman” (2014) was the most recent Best Picture winner not to carry an acting award from at least three nominations, as Michael Keaton, Emma Stone and Edward Norton fell to Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”), Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood”) and J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash”), respectively. Arquette and Simmons were the supporting frontrunners all season, but Keaton was locked in a tight Best Actor race with Redmayne until the SAG Awards

No Orchids for Miss Blandish

Devotees of crime and film noir will get a kick out of this Brit attempt to capture the American style, that now comes off as screamingly funny. It was both a huge hit and a big scandal in London, 1948, where the censors came down hard on the film’s flagrant immorality and over-the-top violence. Former pre-Code second-banana thug Jack La Rue tries hard to be Humphrey Bogart. Leading lady Linden Travers’ role is as non-pc now as it was then: an heiress falls in love with the gangster, who has raped her, because she likes it. But the film’s maladroit hardboiled dialogue is hilarious fun.
