    Jackie Earle Haley To Play Pro-Slavery Confederate Alexander Stephens In 'Lincoln'

    The story of Jackie Earle Haley is a pretty amazing one. The actor found modest success as a child actor and continued with his career into the mid '80s with appearances on both television and the big screen before moving behind the camera for the next couple of decades as a modest producer and director of commercials. But he returned to the big screen with a vengeance with a memorable turn as a pedophile in Todd Field's "Little Children" and from there, he's seen an amazing resurgence. With stints in "Watchmen," "Shutter Island," "A Nightmare On Elm Street" and in Tim Burton's forthcoming "Dark Shadows," Haley has established himself as one ...

    John Singleton Says He Showed 'North By Northwest' To The Young Cast Of 'Abduction'

    The Director Talks About His Evolution From 'Boyz N Tha Hood' To Contemporary Action ThrillersIf you’re ever in danger of running out of superlatives when describing John Singleton, thankfully the director can provide plenty of his own; maybe he was just feeling confident on the morning after the Los Angeles premiere for “Abduction,” where “Twilight” fans transferred their “Team Jacob” fantasies onto Taylor Lautner’s new action thriller. Singleton certainly didn’t spare any modesty when describing his work on the film when we sat down to talk with him. “If you look at that film, or the action pictures that I make, they’re totally different fr...

    With Rights To 'Nymphomaniac' Selling Like Crazy, Does Lars Von Trier's Non-Apology Really Matter?

    Oh, Lars Von Trier. The director, who seriously needs to be put in the hands of a good publicist, continues to shoot off this mouth and stack the deck against himself. While he's not exactly Mel Gibson, watching the helmer lately is akin to seeing a sub-Andrew Dice Clay comedian bomb terribly somewhere in the Catskills. His comments, both at Cannes and in the latest issue of GQ, aren't so much offensive (though we can understand how someone might be offended) as they are a series of poorly selected words. Before we get to the latest statement that has ruffled feathers, let's rewind a bit to the Croisette -- here's what he said at the time in ...
