    Chris O'Dowd To Star In TV Series 'Family Tree' From Christopher Guest, Planning To Write A Film For Judd Apatow

    Chris O'Dowd is, quite frankly, a man to watch at the moment. The Irish actor first came to notice alongside Richard Ayoade on British TV show "The I.T. Crowd," which brought him to the attention of Hollywood. And while his early film roles went off a little half-cocked -- "Dinner For Schmucks," "Gu...

    Cannes Review: Chris O'Dowd Shines In The Otherwise Uneven 'The Sapphires'

    Among the The Weinstein Company's pre-Cannes Film Festival buys this year was the largely unknown (until it was bought) Aussie musical/drama/comedy effort "The Sapphires." It's certainly easy to see why this easy-to-digest, feel-good movie earned their attention. With a slate ...

    Chris O'Dowd & Nick Frost To Star In Salsa Dance Comedy 'Cuban Fury'

    Chris O'Dowd is on his way to becoming a very big deal. The Irish comic actor first came to notice, alongside Richard Ayoade, in cult TV show "The IT Crowd," and after early movie appearances in "The Boat That Rocked" and "Gulliver's Travels," has gone from strength to strength; he got to show drama...

    Chris O'Dowd Calls Michael Bay A "Sexist" & A "Fucking Asshole"; Says He'd Never Work On His Films

    Friends With Kids—movie review

    I became an instant fan of Jennifer Westfeldt after seeing the film she co-wrote and starred in, Kissing Jessica Stein, just over a decade ago. For her debut feature as director, writer, and star, she has assembled a powerhouse cast, and devised a comedy (with dramatic undertones) that manages to be...

    Chris O'Dowd, Kelly Reilly & Aidan Gillen Join Brendan Gleeson In John Michael McDonagh's 'Calvary'

    "The Guard" was one of the more pleasant surprises of last year, an under-the-radar little foul-mouthed dark comedy that featured something close to a career-best performance from the great Brendan Gleeson, and a sharp script from John Michael McDonagh, who demonstrated that he's just ...
