    My Interview With "Attack The Block" John Boyega And Director Joe Cornish

    As I promised a reader earlier this week, below is the link to my interview with actor John Boyega, and writer/director Joe Cornish for Ebony.com. Because of space restrictions I wasn't able to print all they had to say, but take it from me, they're both terrific and down to earth guys with lots of ...

    Ex-'The Hobbit' Actor Rob Kazinsky Joins Guillermo Del Toro's 'Pacific Rim,' Willem Dafoe In Talks

    If you're cast in a major blockbuster, only to be replaced publicly, it can be hard to get your career back on track again. Stuart Townsend, for instance, shot scenes as Aragorn in "Lord of the Rings," before Peter Jackson decided he was too young, and replaced him with Viggo Mortensen. Townsend's heat remained for a little while -- he was the lead in "Queen of the Damned," and one of "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen," but, well, we know what happened to those, and Townsend hasn't had much luck in recent years. Dougray Scott, meanwhile, was meant to play Wolverine in Bryan Singer's "X-Men," but had to bow out when "Mission Impossible 2"...

    The Small Screen: Patricia Clarkson Awesomely Cast As Ron Swanson's First Ex-Wife In 'Parks & Rec'

    To fill in for those of you who haven't watched "Parks and Recreation" (and really, you're running out of excuses at this point -- we did call it the best thing on television earlier in the year), the show's break-out character is Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman), the libertarian, meat-loving head of the...

    Olivia Wilde Considers Playing Porn Star Linda Lovelace In Biopic By Rob Epstein & Jeffrey Friedman

    It seems that a film about notorious "Deep Throat" porn star Linda Lovelace is something quite a few people in Hollywood want to get made. There are two currently competing projects: the first is Matthew Wilder's "Inferno" that was famously going to have Lindsay Lohan in the lead role, but now is toplined by Malin Akerman and Matt Dillon. Last we heard, filming was supposed to begin this month though it appears that hasn't really happened and word on the project has grown quiet once again. The other is by “Howl” and "The Celluloid Closet" directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman that at one point was courting Kate Hudson and James Franco, a...

Out Of ItAfter a few months of rumors flying around, the line up for the 2011 Venice Film Festival has been unveiled, and to put it mildly, we're a little bit excited. The opening and closing films, George Clooney's "The Ides of March" and Whit Stillman's "Damsels In Distress," had been revealed over the past few weeks, and now, we've got the full selection. There'll be little new for anyone who spied the leaked line-up a few days ago, which seemed to get things ...
