Bradford Dillman obituary

Prolific film and TV actor who gave a chilling performance in the 1959 film Compulsion and was often cast as a villain

In his engagingly casual 1997 autobiography, Are You Anybody?, the actor Bradford Dillman, who has died aged 87, took a self-deprecatory view of his own career in particular and of acting in general – a profession he considered just below that of used-car salesman in the American social order. About his prolific work in cinema and television, he was sanguine, having settled for what he called “the Safeway solution” – a willingness to accept any role in order to put food on the family table.

On stage Dillman had achieved early success as Edmund in the 1956 Broadway production of Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey into Night. This lauded production starred Fredric March as the father and Jason Robards as the alcoholic brother Jamie. Although Robards received greater acclaim in the juicier role,

Riverdale Boss, Stars Preview Molly Ringwald's Arrival as Archie's Mom
This Thursday on Riverdale (The CW, 9/8c), Archie and his dad will get a blast from the past… and viewers will, too.

After we caught a fleeting glimpse of her last episode, ’80s teen-movie queen Molly Ringwald makes her formal debut this week as Archie’s mom Mary, who’s been absent for years and is in the midst of divorcing Archie’s dad Fred. And Ringwald’s retro appeal does help, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa says: “It is nice when Mary appears, and it’s Molly Ringwald… That does give us a shorthand.” But it’s not just stunt casting,

Raven can officially add “martyr” to her incredibly long list of accomplishments.

When The 100 returns on Wednesday (The CW, 9/8c), Arkadia’s resident tech genius is “definitely at her lowest point yet,” actress Lindsey Morgan tells TVLine. “Her brain is deteriorating at a rapid rate because she’s using it so much. In trying to save everyone, she’s basically killing herself.”

General Hospital Spoilers: All’s Fair In Love And War

Most people raised in single-parent households probably wish — or at least, wished — that their parents would eventually get back together. Although times have certainly changed, and there are a lot of people only living with one parent, it still doesn’t change the idea that most people have in their heads. Unfortunately for Jake Spencer, it looks like it might be his time to learn that despite what he’s hoping for, his parents probably won’t be getting back together. No matter how old you get, no one ever likes to be told that they can’t have something that they really

Chris Eyre to direct ‘Soul Catcher’
Producer Dimitri Villard, whose credits include Flight Of The Navigator and In Love And War, is moving ahead with his Frank Herbert adaptation with the hire of the Sundance-winning filmmaker.

Eyre (pictured) won the Sundance Audience Award and Filmmaker’s Trophy for his 1998 entry Smoke Signals and will direct from an adapted screenplay by John Sayles. Villard optioned the 1972 novel from the author’s estate late last year.

Soul Catcher charts the abuse of Native Americans and an activist’s attempt to even the score by kidnapping the son of a Washington politician.

“I’m so excited to have assembled this all-star team to translate Frank Herbert’s brilliant novel to the screen,” said Villard.

“There is no better director of Native American films than Chris; John has an incredibly rich history of writing socially important screenplays and Rene [Hayes] is hands-down the leading casting director of Native American films and actors.

Richard Attenborough, Oscar-winning director of 'Gandhi,' dies at 90
Oscar-winning filmmaker and actor Richard Attenborough, who delighted cinema audiences across some six decades, has died, according to his son. He was 90 years old. According to the BBC, Attenborough had been in a nursing home with his wife for a number of years, and he had been bound to a wheelchair following a fall six years ago. Attenborough began his career in front of the camera, drawing raves for work in films like John Boulting's "Brighton Rock" in 1947, John Sturges' "The Great Escape" and Robert Wise's "The Sand Pebbles" opposite Steve McQueen, as well as Richard Fleischer's Oscar-nominated "Doctor Dolittle" opposite Rex Harrison. He transitioned to directing with ease with the Golden Globe-winning "Oh! What a Lovely War" in 1969 and developed a keen interest in history and biopics with his work. More accolades came for the Winston Churchill early years tale "Young Winston" in 1972, star-studded World

The producer, whose credits include Flight Of The Navigator and In Love And War, has optioned the 1972 novel from the Frank Herbert estate.

The story charts the abuse of Native Americans and an activist’s attempt to even the score by kidnapping the son of a Washington politician.

“The book is an extraordinary example of Frank Herbert’s brilliant writing and it is something I’ve always wanted to turn into a film,” said Villard (pictured). “I remember the rights being unavailable when I first pursued the Soul Catcher project in the 80s, but as my producing career developed I never forgot the powerful effect the story had on me.

“Now, with full support from the Frank Herbert Estate, we have the opportunity to make a culturally impactful film that combines elements of suspense, high drama, mysticism and Native American history that will resonate for years to come and appeal to the millions of Frank Herbert fans worldwide

Discuss: Who, If Any, Of The Current Crop Of Leading Ladies Are Reliable Box-Office Draws?

At the start of the week, we examined the state of the A-list leading man, and why, outside of those who've been big draws for years -- Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Johnny Depp et al. -- so few stars seemed to be reliable at bringing audiences to their pictures. But when you look at the leading ladies, things are even more puzzling.

Put simply, the number of actreses who can be deemed consistent box office draws seems to diminish, rather than grow, as each year goes on. In part, it's because it's so rare for the major blockbusters to be lead by a woman: of the top 20 worldwide grossers last year, only "Twilight" could arguably be said to be led by a woman, and holding up those films as a victory for womankind would be an error, given their prehistoric sexual politics. 2010 was a little better, thanks to "Black Swan" and "Alice in Wonderland,

The Twilight Saga: New Moon a "Surprise" Winner at MTV Movie Awards / New Eclipse Footage

Who would have thought after sweeping last year's MTV Movie Awards that Twilight could come back and make it two years in a row? But that's exactly what the saga of sparkling vampires and underwearwolves did last night with the sequel New Moon picking up every top honor and winning in every single category for it was nominated. And with two (or maybe three) more Twilight films to come, the franchise appears poised to become the 1972 Miami Dolphins of the MTV Movie Awards.

Not even the $2 billion worldwide box office of Avatar could stop the Twilight juggernaut as New Moon took the top prize of "Best Movie". Taylor Lautner's impeccable abs proved no match for Robert Pattinson's impenetrable eyebrows as Pattinson walked away with the "Best Actor" award for the 1/4th of New Moon he actually appeared in.

Celebrity Biography: Sandra Bullock

  • PopStar
Sandra Bullock is one of the world's most popular, most recognizable and longest-lasting movie stars. She arrived on July 26, 1964, as Sandra Annette Bullock, the daughter of opera singer Helga Meyer and voice coach and Pentagon contractor John Bullock. Though she was born in Arlington, Virginia, Bullock actually grew up in Nuremberg, Germany, where she first dipped her toes in the entertainment waters by studying vocal arts and ballet dancing, and appearing (briefly) in some of her mother's shows. She returned to the States in the mid-70's, attending high school and then going to college at East Carolina University in North Carolina, but she exited before graduation in order to chase her acting dream. It wasn't long before Bullock -- initially based in New York City -- started to find work. She landed a role in the back-door pilot Bionic Showdown: The Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman
