‘Stillwater’ Will Team Matt Damon with ‘The Cobbler’ Director Tom McCarthy

‘Stillwater’ Will Team Matt Damon with ‘The Cobbler’ Director Tom McCarthy
Tom McCarthy, director of the Adam Sandler magic shoes movie The Cobbler (and also Spotlight) has found his next project. Sadly, it’s not a sequel to The Cobbler. Instead, it’s a film called Stillwater, and it stars Matt Damon as a guy who finds magic shoes. Oh, I’m sorry, that’s the plot to The Cobbler again. My mistake. Instead, Damon […]

Russian Doll: If You're Googling Who This Actor Is, We're Disappointed in You

  • Popsugar
Netflix's latest buzzy show is Russian Doll, a dark comedy following Nadia, a woman stuck in a twisty Groundhog Day loop: she keeps reliving her 36th birthday party - and dying at the end of every loop. Star and creator Natasha Lyonne is a familiar face to Netflix viewers for her longtime role on Orange Is the New Black, and she's brought along a few other Oitnb alumni to join her on her own series. Among the familiar faces is "Beatrice," the girlfriend of Nadia's fellow time-loop victim Alan.

Beatrice is played by Dascha Polanco, who will most definitely be recognizable to fans of Orange Is the New Black. Since the flagship Netflix original comedy began in 2013, she has played inmate Daya Diaz. During the first two seasons, Polanco was a recurring character, but she was promoted to a series regular for the third season in 2015; she has kept this status ever since.

Podtalk: Cast of Netflix's ‘Orange is the New Black' on Season Six Download for July 27, 2018

Chicago – Orange Day is Friday… as in “Orange is the New Black.” That’s when Season Six will be available for download from Netflix, as the online series continues to showcase the women inmates at Litchfield Penitentiary, three of whom are played by Taylor Schilling (Piper), Kate Mulgrew (Red) and Dascha Polanco (Daya).

The three actors came to Chicago to promote “Orange is the New Black” (also known as Oitnb) as it keeps its status as a go-to download, and is often cited as the first “binge” series in TV history. Created by Jenji Kohan, the multiple award-winning series revolves around Piper Chapman (Schilling), a woman in her 30s who is sentenced to minimum security prison at the fictional Litchfield. She was railroaded into the joint by her on-again-off-again lover Alex (Laura Prepon), and her indictment and imprisonment has been the catalyst for exploring the lives inside Litchfield for five seasons.

Dustin Hoffman Allegedly Groped Meryl Streep During an Audition in the ’70s
In the past week, two women have publicly accused Dustin Hoffman of sexual harassment, allegations which have renewed interest in Meryl Streep’s nearly-four-decade-old claim that her “Kramer vs. Kramer” co-star introduced himself by grabbing her breast. Slate tracked down a Time article from 1979 — the year the film came out — in which Streep recalls auditioning for a play Hoffman was directing. “He came up to me and said, ‘I’m Dustin — burp — Hoffman,’ and he put his hand on my breast,” the actress told Time. “What an obnoxious pig, I thought.”

Per Jeff Lenburg’s 2001 book “Dustin Hoffman: Hollywood’s Antihero,” the play was “All Over Town,” which debuted on Broadway in late 1974, when Streep was 25. Later that decade, the actors notoriously battled on Robert Benson’s “Kramer vs. Kramer” set, where they played divorcing parents.

Adam Sandler on ‘The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)’ and Therapy: ‘I Don’t Want to Let Anybody Down’

Adam Sandler on ‘The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)’ and Therapy: ‘I Don’t Want to Let Anybody Down’
Amid all the poorly received Netflix Originals, let us not forget that Adam Sandler dabbles in more serious fare from time to time. It doesn’t always work out — “The Cobbler” was among the most pilloried films of 2014 — but Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)” has emerged as an early favorite at Cannes. Sandler spoke about the film during a press conference at the festival, saying that he “couldn’t believe we were doing this movie” when he first read the script.

Ben Stiller and Dustin Hoffman co-star as Sandler’s brother and father, respectively, with Emma Thompson playing Hoffman’s third and current wife. “It’s different for a comedian when you get an offer like this,” Sandler said. “My first thought is, ‘I don’t want

‘Kill Switch’ Teaser Trailer: Dan Stevens Stars in Apocalyptic Sci-Fi Thriller — Watch

Smit is a visual effects supervisor who also did the visual effects for “Kill Switch,” which looks at times like a cross between “District 9” and a video game movie. Saban Films acquired the North American distribution rights to the movie out of the Berlin Film Festival when it was still called “Redivider.” The movie is based on a short film of Smit’s

Watch: Teaser Trailer For Sci-Fi Actioner ‘Kill Switch’ Starring Dan Stevens

If you’re looking to reinvent your career, it’s hard to imagine doing it better than Dan Stevens. Just a few years ago, the actor was known exclusively as the slightly doughy romantic lead in surprise TV smash “Downton Abbey,” but after his character was killed off, he remerged as a lean, mean action star in Sundance hit “The Guest.”

Since then, there have been some ups and some downs (“The Cobbler” being among the latter), but he’s had an absolutely killer 2017: starring, mostly in mo-cap form, in Disney megasmash “Beauty And The Beast,” headlining a critically acclaimed TV show in “Legion,” and delivering a pair of supporting turns in indie hits “Colossal” and “Norman” too.

Adam Sandler’s Latest Netflix Mandate ‘Sandy Wexler’ Could Use Better Management [Review]

There are essentially two types of Adam Sandler movies, though they sometimes come in varying shades. On the left side are the more casual, laissez-faire affairs, wherein the popular comedic actor/producer plays an exaggerated variation of his real-life, good-hearted slacker persona. Some of them are charming enough (“Billy Madison,” “The Wedding Singer,” “50 First Dates“), some are mixed (“Big Daddy,” “Spanglish“), and a few are, err, curious failures (“Eight Crazy Nights,” “Click,” “The Cobbler“), but the rest stink of cash-grabbing laziness (the “Grown Ups” movies, “Just Go With It,” “Blended“).

Newswire: Adam Sandler waxes nostalgic about blasting kids with dodgeballs in new Conan clip

Despite being hated by critics at the time of its release (22 years ago last month), Billy Madison has achieved a certain nostalgic glow over time, both as one of the purest expressions of Adam Sandler’s rampaging id and long-spent cinematic energy, and as a thing that today’s younger adults watched a shit-ton of back when they were kids. Sandler himself waxed nostalgic about the cult-favorite man-boy movie on tonight’s Conan, fondly reminiscing about drilling a bunch of six-year-olds in the head with dodgeballs in one of the movie’s most famous scenes.

Recounting the story with host Conan O’Brien, Sandler seemed to perk up a bit, going from The Cobbler levels of energy all the way up to a Grown-Ups or Click bonhomie. His favorite part seemed to be the protesting parents of his young co-stars, who’d apparently failed to properly vet the script ...

Oscars 2016: 'Spotlight' Wins Best Picture, 'The Revenant' Takes Best Director & Actor, 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Wins 6

From the utterly-loathed “The Cobbler” to the critically-adored “Spotlight,” Tom McCarthy had one of the craziest years of any director in recent memory. In a shocking twist of a narrative that seemed to keep the excellent investigative journalism film on the outside, McCarthy’s “Spotlight” snuck up the middle and took Best Picture at the the 88th Academy Awards tonight. For much of the season, the momentum swung between “The Big Short” (the PGA winner) and “The Revenant” (which had big wins at the SAG and DGA), but it would seem they split the difference, leaving room for “Spotlight” to sneak in there for the win. In addition to the big prize, "Spotlight" only had one other award, for Best Original Screenplay.

Razzie Awards: 'Fifty Shades of Grey' and 'Fantastic Four' Tie for Worst Picture

Razzie Awards: 'Fifty Shades of Grey' and 'Fantastic Four' Tie for Worst Picture
All five films up for Worst Picture at this year's 36th Annual Razzie Awards are big budget/high profile productions that have no excuse for being among the year's "berry" worst. And 2015's acting contenders include popular stars like Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, previous Oscar winners Gwyneth Paltrow, Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore, and such Razzie Repeat Offenders as Adam Sandler, Jennifer Lopez and Katherine Heigl. The winners were announced last night, with Fifty Shades of Grey and Fantastic Four tying for Worst Picture.

The choices for Worst Picture include Fifty Shades of Grey (2015's "Most Successful Bad Movie"), Fantastic Four (a nearly instant remake that flopped with both critics and movie-goers), Jupiter Ascending (the latest sci-fi fiasco from Andy Wachowski & Lana Wachowski), Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (a box office hit despite its 95% negative rating at Rotten Tomatoes) and Adam Sandler's latest excuse for a movie,
