'Blade Runner 2049' Star Ana de Armas Joins Kevin Pollak Thriller
Ana de Armas is set to take the title role in 'Waiting for Helen,' a noir thriller directed by Kevin Pollak.

The Cuban actress came to prominence last year with her performance as holographic companion Joi in 'Blade Runner 2049,' opposite Ryan Gosling.

In 'Waiting for Helen,' she will play a waitress who may be an innocent patsy or a sadistic sociopath.

According to the official synopsis: "A detective tells a stranger the story of an attractive, young waitress named Helen, who befriended a customer and was asked to help prove her husband's infidelity. People end up dead."

The detective must then prove Helen is either innocent or guilty before the night is over, or her life will be.

Projects in the pipeline for de Armas include crime drama 'Three Seconds,' alongside Rosamund Pike; Danny Boyle's musical comedy based on the music of The Beatles; and 'The Night Clerk,' about a voyeuristic hotel clerk who becomes the subject of a murder investigation, which also stars Tye Sheridan and Helen Hunt.

Pollak, best known for his roles in 'The Usual Suspects,' 'A Few Good Men,' and 'The Whole Nine Yards,' will also star in the movie.

Too Many Princess Bride Takes Were Ruined by Rob Reiner's Laughter
The Princess Bride hit theaters in September 1987 and was a modest success at the box office. However, it has become a cult classic over the years, a family movie that keeps getting passed on. The comedic fantasy movie isn't just hilarious to audiences, according to a new interview with director Rob Reiner, who admits that Billy Crystal's ad-libbing on the set was too much for him to take. Reiner also revealed his favorite line from the very quotable film.

Billy Crystal is recognized as one of the best comedians to ever step foot on stage by many, including the late Robin Williams. Crystal and Williams were able to crack each other up with their intense ability to quickly ad-lib, which gave them both practice for their acts.

Woody Harrelson and James Marsden Investigate The Iraq War in Trailer For Shock And Awe

Woody Harrelson and James Marsden star in the upcoming film Shock and Awe. The film is based on the true events of the Knight Ridder journalists "who were the only ones who 'got it right' in the lead-up to the 2003 Iraq War when they questioned the true nature of the Bush White House’s justification for the conflict."

Remember when the White House was selling America on the idea that Iraq was harboring weapons of mass destruction and then it turned out that it wasn't true? Well, this is the film that will tell that story. Well, at least the Hollywood version of that story, and Harrelson and Marsden will play the journalists.

The movie was directed by Rob Reiner (The Princess Bride, Misery, A Few Good Men, Stand By Me) and also co-stars Tommy Lee Jones. Reiner is a great filmmaker and this looks like it could be a solid film!

Producer Neil Meron (‘Jesus Christ Superstar’) on the ‘raw’ rock opera & the ‘mystical list’ of shows he’d still like to make [Exclusive Video Interview]

Producer Neil Meron (‘Jesus Christ Superstar’) on the ‘raw’ rock opera & the ‘mystical list’ of shows he’d still like to make [Exclusive Video Interview]
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice “always conceived [‘Jesus Christ Superstar’] as more raw, stripped-down,” says producer Neil Meron about his approach to the rock opera that he and the rest of his cast and crew staged as an NBC live concert event on Easter Sunday, April 1. So they created “more of an audience-friendly” show where the live spectators at the Marcy Avenue Armory where “Superstar” was performed became part of the production, “and we thought it worked spectacularly well.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Meron above.

“Jesus Christ Superstar” is the latest live musical production Meron has worked on for NBC, following “The Sound of Music” (2014), “Peter Pan” (2015), “The Wiz” (2016) and “Hairspray” (2017). He has “always felt a connection” to “Superstar” for its “inventive and bold” take on the story of Jesus’s last week before his crucifixion. This staging presented its own unique challenges compared to Meron’s other musical efforts,

‘Weird Al’ Yankovic Wrote a NY Times Crossword Puzzle, and It’s Pretty Cheesy

  • The Wrap
“Weird Al” Yankovic: Master parodist. Accordion maestro. Budding guitar god. And now, it turns out, crossword-puzzle author. “Eat It” singer Yankovic co-wrote Wednesday’s edition of the New York Times crossword puzzle, and as you might expect from someone who brought the world songs such as, well, “Eat It,” the resulting work has its share of food puns.

Cuba Gooding Jr. Recalls His ’10 Years in the Wilderness’ — and Turning Down ‘Ray’ and ‘The Last King of Scotland’
Few actors have had a career trajectory quite like that of Cuba Gooding, Jr. Twenty years after winning an Oscar for his role in “Jerry Maguire,” the actor has mounted a comeback of sorts after what he describes as “10 years in the wilderness” marked by forgettable straight-to-dvd projects. Now he’s done a far-reaching interview with the Guardian to discuss how he always wanted to be an actor “who does all the parts” — and how that may have harmed his career as much as it helped it.

After admitting that he’s starred in “some real clunkers,” Gooding, Jr. is asked whether he made them for the money. “Not for me,” he says. “For me, it was always about protecting the sanctity of that golden statue… Because I felt I needed to show people that I can do more, I can do better.”

That mindset dates back to his breakthrough
