'Speed' 20th anniversary: Meet the passengers of bus 2525

'Speed' 20th anniversary: Meet the passengers of bus 2525
When director Jan de Bont set about casting the various faces and secondary characters that populated bus #2525 in his 1994 actioner "Speed," it was very important to him that they reflect the multicultural identity of Los Angeles. Not only that, but he wanted there to be a heavy dose of realism in his choices, actors who seemed to be people you could look over on a morning commute and see reading the paper, sipping coffee, gazing out the window and starting their day. On the occasion of the film's 20th anniversary, I thought it would be interesting to track down as many of those actors as possible and tell the story of "Speed" from their perspective. It was a gargantuan task. While a number of them have remained in the industry in some way, many have moved on to other careers. But their individual stories are nevertheless as fascinating as the

80 Reasons Shirley MacLaine Is One-of-a-Kind, in Honor of Her 80th Birthday

Happy 80th birthday, Shirley MacLaine!

The legendary, award-winning actress, who was born April 24, 1934 in Richmond, Va, started out as a dancer and got her big break on Broadway. She made her first film with Alfred Hitchcock, became a Rat Pack regular, flirted briefly with politics but has never stopped acting as she enters her 7th decade in Hollywood.

She started off as a lovably kooky ingenue, but is known today for her cantankerous matriarch roles in "Downton Abbey," "Bernie," "Steel Magnolias," "Guarding Tess," and, of course, her Oscar-winning role as Aurora Greenway in "Terms of Endearment."

Her next gig is a singing and dancing role on "Glee," of course. Happy Birthday to one of the most talented, most colorful character actresses of all time.

1. She was named after Shirley Temple.

2. She's been performing since age 3, when she began doing ballet.

3. As a girl, she pretended she was Rita Hayworth, since

Sandra Bullock Tears Up During Jay Leno’s Farewell Week

She’s been on “The Tonight Show” 20 times, and Sandra Bullock barely kept her composure as she said goodbye to Jay Leno last night (February 5).

The “Proposal” actress began, "I'd like to say something. I'm going to start crying. You've always been so kind. That's saying a lot in this business because we like to be mean. There's not been one time that you haven't treated me like I had something to offer.”

“Even when the film was horrible and you knew it, you never let me see it in your eyes. When I made crazy life decisions you never questioned [them]. You were always so welcoming and every single person on your crew was that way consistently and I just felt special even when I felt very insecure. And everyone, I think, in this room and in this country, has felt that every day that you've been in their homes.

Todd Phillips tackles Belushi pic

Todd Phillips tackles Belushi pic
John Belushi may be getting a (second) second life on the big screen.

"The Pursuit of Happyness" screenwriter Steven Conrad and "The Hangover" director-producer Todd Phillips are developing a biographical film about the late comedian's life. Warner Bros. recently acquired the rights from Belushi's estate.

Conrad will script the project and Phillips will produce, though he has not yet committed to directing it. Alexandra Milchan and Bonnie Timmerman are also producing.

In a typically difficult process that saw the rights deal come together, then fall apart, then come back together again, the project would be the latest attempt at a full-scale biopic about the "Saturday Night Live" cast member and film star who died of a drug overdose in 1982 at age 33.

Belushi's life was famously detailed in Bob Woodward's 1985 biography, "Wired: The Short Life and Fast Times of John Belushi." That book is not part of the rights deal,

Is Robert Duvall Gilliam's New Quixote?

Is Robert Duvall Gilliam's New Quixote?
You might recall that, back in October, we heard from Terry Gilliam at the Dr Parnassus premiere that he'd found his new Don Quixote, but refused to spill on who it was. Now we think we know: Robert Duvall.Chatting with Collider to promote upcoming drama Crazy Heart, Duvall dropped the bomb that he'd been in discussions with Gilliam to take over the lead in The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. "I may work with Terry Gilliam next - if they get the money - to play Don Quixote de la Mancha," he says, adding that it would be "Totally amazing to work with Terry Gilliam. But, once again, the money. It’s so difficult to get the money. So what convinced El Tel to pick Duvall? Turns out it was his performance in Wrestling Ernest Hemingway: "He saw me play a Cuban barber one time with Richard Harris

The Karate Kid Gets a New Screenwriter

Earlier this month when Academy Award-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson was cast in Columbia Pictures' reimagining of The Karate Kid, we asked you if she brought any credibility to the project. Tonight it has been revealed that a new screenwriter has been hired for the Will Smith-produced reboot. Who is the new scribe? Steven Conrad, whose credits include Wrestling Ernest Hemingway, The Weather Man, The Pursuit of Happyness and the underrated comedy The Promotion. An obvious choice considering Conrad's connection to Smith. But will a new screenwriter be able to save this project from expected doom? Don't count on it, especially considering the bits and pieces of information that leaked out of Chris Murphy's previous draft. Lets just hope that the final film is retitled The Kung Fu Kid, or something else entirely. source: RiskyBiz
