36 Actors Who Could Be The 007th James Bond

Simon Columb with 36 actors who could be the 007th James Bond…

Straight off the bat, we’ve got to be open-minded about what defines James Bond. I’d argue that James Bond needs to be have a smart, smooth presentation with a brawling, rough depth beneath the surface. The whole backstory needs to be buried in the character. He needs to be ever-so-slightly uncomfortable in a tuxedo but to such a small extent that it carries the swagger that demands the attention of others in the room. There’s no particular figure, height, age or race that defines this presentation. Being a bit smarmy with the ladies is almost an expectation – especially as ‘Bond Girl’ is so rooted in the series. But, considering M was the Bond Girl in Skyfall, I can appreciate this may need a slight update. Nevertheless, a Jane Bond can’t be entirely off the table.

Huston to Follow Heston as Ben-Hur Casting Announced

Jack Huston cast in 'Ben-Hur' remake? 'Boardwalk Empire' actor to follow in the footsteps of Ramon Novarro and Charlton Heston Jack Huston, best known for playing World War I veteran-turned-bootlegger-cum-assassin Richard Harrow in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, may star in the latest Ben-Hur "remake," to be jointly produced by Paramount and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. I have "remake" between quotes because officially this fourth big-screen version of the semi-biblical epic (more on that below) isn't an actual remake of either the multiple Oscar-winning 1959 Ben-Hur or its 1925 predecessor, but a direct adaptation of former Civil War general Lew Wallace's 1880 bestselling novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, which happens to be conveniently in the public domain. Timur Bekmambetov, whose credits include the Angelina Jolie-James McAvoy thriller Wanted and the supernatural cult classic Night Watch, has been attached as director of what is in fact A Tale

DVD Playhouse--November 2009

DVD Playhouse—November 2009

By

Allen Gardner

Watchmen—The Ultimate Cut (Warner Bros.) Director Zack Snyder’s film of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ landmark graphic novel is as worthy an adaptation of a great book that has ever been filmed. In an alternative version of the year 1985, Richard Nixon is serving his third term as President and super heroes have been outlawed by a congressional act, in spite of the fact that two of the most high-profile “masks,” Dr. Manhattan (Billy Cruddup) and The Comedian (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) helped the U.S. win the Vietnam War. When The Comedian is found murdered, many former heroes become concerned that a conspiracy is afoot to assassinate retired costumed crime fighters. Former masks Nite Owl (Patrick Wilson), Silk Spectre (Malin Akerman) and still-operating Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley, in an Oscar-worthy turn) launch an investigation of their own, all while the Pentagon’s “Doomsday

[DVD Review] The Dead

If there’s one type of film that simply doesn’t float my boat, it’s the late 1800s/early 1900s period European costume drama. I’m not into it, I feel I can’t relate to many of the characters. The films which fall into this category that I can watch at length are few and far between, and if anyone mentions Brideshead Revisited to me I’ll likely slip into a light coma.

John Huston’s final film, The Dead, falls under this heading. It was the immortal director’s dream project for many years. He did not live to see the film’s release. Directing from an oxygen tent, he meticulously adapted James Joyce’s short story in the most non-indulgent manner a director of his stature and ability could endure. With the help of an Oscar-nominated screenplay penned by his son, Tony Huston, and with his
