The Black Dahlia (2006)
He's a fun actor that takes on great roles and he just landed a perfect role in CBS' upcoming series adaptation of James Ellroy’s 1990 noir novel L.A. Confidential. Goggins will play detective Jack Vincennes, who is described as follows:
“All swagger and flash with a movie star smile, Jack knows how the system works and uses it to his best advantage, including some corrupt shakedowns on the side.”
This character was previously played by Kevin Spacey in the 1997 Curtis Hanson-directed film adaptation of the book. The series will reportedly follow "three homicide detectives, a female reporter and a Hollywood actress. The detectives are following a serial
The last film to do this was “Memoirs of a Geisha” (2005), which edged out Best Picture nominees “Brokeback Mountain” and “Good Night, and Good Luck,” and non-Best Picture contenders “Batman Begins” and “The New World.” The following year’s Best Cinematography field was comprised entirely of non-Best Picture nominees — “Pan’s Labyrinth” beat “The Black Dahlia,” “Children of Men,” “The Illusionist” and “The Prestige” — so that is the last time a non-Best Picture nominee won the category. Since then, every cinematography champ has vied for the top award.

Danny Boyle’s new crime series, Trust, focuses on the Getty kidnapping. An impressive cast has been assembled...
FX recently expanded its prestige drama lineup with Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle’s new anthology series, titled Trust. This particular offering dramatises one of the most intriguing public criminal incidents of recent history with the ransom-seeking kidnapping of curly-locked young heir John Paul Getty III, which shockingly resulted in apparent indifference and noncompliance from the family patriarch.
While this story might ring familiar to those who caught All the Money In The World, the latest film from director Ridley Scott, expect this limited series to delve deeper into the Getty calamity.
A new trailer for the series has just arrived. Take a look...

On the morning of January, 15, 1947, the mutilated body of aspiring Hollywood actress Elizabeth Short was discovered on the sidewalk of a Los Angeles parking lot. The 22-year-old’s body was found cut in half. She had been bathed and drained of blood.

Robert Aldrich’s 1940s film apprenticeship was largely spent as an assistant director for strong, creative filmmakers that wanted to do good personal work free of the constraints of the big studios.
Black Dahlia is the seventh in his “Treasury of XXth Century Murder,” which followed eight similar books in the “Treasury of Victorian Murder” (and one even earlier book, The Treasury of Victorian Murder, Vol. 1, a miscellaneous collection that was the prototype for the whole sub-career). Each one is a roughly comic-book-sized hardcover, of about eighty pages, telling the story of one famous historical murder. He’s done Abraham Lincoln and James Garfield, Jack the Ripper and H.H. Holmes, Sacco and Vanzetti and several more not as well-known in the 21st century. Each book is carefully researched and filled with maps and diagrams of the towns and murder locations — all drawn by Geary in his precise but puckish style.
According to Variety, the series will follow "the paths of three homicide detectives, a female reporter, and a Hollywood actress as they intersect while the detectives pursue a sadistic serial killer through the seedy underbelly of 1950’s Los Angeles."
L.A. Confidential is one of four books in Ellroy's "L.A. Quartet" series. The crime fiction novels, which also consisted of The Black Dahlia, The Big Nowhere, and White Jazz, are set in the late 1940s through the late 1950s in Los Angeles.
Based on James Ellroy’s classic novel of the same name, the series would follow the paths of three homicide detectives, a female reporter, and a Hollywood actress as they intersect while the detectives pursue a sadistic serial killer through the seedy underbelly of 1950’s Los Angeles.
New Regency, Lionsgate Television and CBS Television Studios will produce, with New Regency’s Arnon Milchan serving as executive producer. Jordan Harper is set to write and executive produce. Harper previously wrote for and produced the CBS drama “The Mentalist.” Most recently, he served as a writer and supervising producer on Fox’s “Gotham.” He is repped by UTA and The Shuman Company.
The novel was first published in 1990, the third entry in Ellroy’s “L.A. Quartet,” which explored life in the City of Angels in the 1940’s and ’50s. The
Aaron Eckhart has joined the slate of guest stars on The Romanoffs, Matthew Weiner’s follow-up to Mad Men, co-produced with Weinstein Television.
Eckhart joins recently announced guest stars Isabelle Huppert, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, Jack Huston, Amanda Peet, and Marthe Keller.
Weiner is set to direct all episodes of the one-hour contemporary anthology series set around the globe featuring separate stories about people who believe themselves to be descendants of the Russian royal family.
Eckhart’s big screen credits include In The Company Of Men, which first drew him critical attention, as well as The Dark Knight as Harvey Dent/Two Face, The Black Dahlia, and London Has Fallen. He earned a Golden Globe nomination for Thank You For Smoking.
Eckhart was most recently seen co-starring opposite Tom Hanks in Clint Eastwood’s Sully, and in Bleed For This opposite Miles Teller.
The series follows a government agency where people can “stitch” into the memories of people recently killed to investigate their unsolved murders.
For those that haven’t been binge-watching the entire series in preparation, the most important tidbit to remember from last season’s dramatic cliffhanger is Kirsten (Emma Ishta) was trapped in her own stitch memory while Cameron (Kyle Harris) did everything he could to bring her back out.
So where will our favorite team of scientific investigative murderers be when we pick up with them again? Et exclusively caught up with the cast ahead of the June 5 season premiere, and it looks like we will find them exactly where we left them.
We pay tribute to the film stars and directors from around the world who sadly passed away in 2016.
Argentine-born Brazilian director Hector Babenco died on July 13 at 70-years-old.
He found international success with Brazilian slum drama Pixote (1981), going on to make Kiss Of The Spider Woman (1985), for which he earned a best director Oscar nominee and William Hurt earned an Oscar win for best actor.
Babenco went on to direct Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson in Ironweed (1987) and Tom Berenger and John Lithgow in At Play In The Fields Of The Lord (1991).
After undergoing cancer treatment in the 1990s, he returned to the director’s chair for films including Brazilian prison
It used to be called the Cecil and its blood-drenched history inspired the 2015 season of American Horror Story. Drug addicts, serial killers, “accidental” slips from very high windows all feature in the popular series and have their roots in the real-life hotel’s past. The Cecil has a dark legacy dating all the way back to the Great Depression.
The Black Dahlia was rumored to have had her last drink at the hotel bar before she turned up dead a few miles away. In 1962, Pauline Otton jumped from a ninth-floor window, killing herself and an unsuspecting George Giannini when she landed on top of him as he walked down the sidewalk. That same year, Julia Moore jumped from an eighth floor window, and Helen

The Black Dahlia is a curious artefact. It is likely to be remembered simply by virtue of being in the catalogue of Brian de Palma, even if the film’s quality is negligible compared to his biggest hitters Carrie and The Untouchables. When compared to the other famous James Ellroy adaptation, the Oscar-winning L.A. Confidential (which celebrates its own birthday, its 19th, in just a few days), de Palma’s effort certainly pales. In the career of cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond (the film’s sole Oscar nominee), it’s likely to be a footnote in the late man’s incredible career, coming after his work with Spielberg, Cimino and Altman. The film’s stars probably took a year at most to write it off as a failure on all their parts.

"I was allowed to do theater, commercial work, television work, modeling, fashion design, and it was great. But the thing with reality television fame is that it's got a pretty quick expiration date.
