    Hollywood has no shortage of brilliant character actors whose faces you've seen over and over but whose names you can never quite recall.

    Kal Penn Says He Doesn't Consider The 'Harold & Kumar' Films To Be Stoner Movies

    Since “Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle” was released in 2004, much has happened to both of its stars, Kal Penn and John Cho, but Penn’s career trajectory in particular took some genuinely unexpected turns. In addition to playing a villainous henchman in “Superman Returns,” a teenage terrorist on “24,” and a sports medicine specialist on “House,” in 2009 he became Associate Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, which took him out of Hollywood and put him in a political spotlight. Amazingly, it was another installment of the series that gave him his breakthrough, entitled “A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas,” which prompted...

    Review: 'Son Of No One' Suggests 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' As Written By Dennis Lehane

    In the relatively ridiculous new procedural/mystery "Son of No One," Channing Tatum, as a mustachioed police officer married to Katie Holmes (and looking after an epileptic daughter), is sent taunting letters and anonymous text messages alluding to a violent incident from his past. (The movie is set way back in 2002 which is why he doesn't receive cryptic emails too. Because no one used email in 2002 apparently). You can tell how terribly we're supposed to take the threats because of all the shaky shots of Tatum flipping open his ancient cell phone, the scenes shot in sickly shades of blue and green. Except that instead of coming across as su...

    Eddie Murphy Turned Brett Ratner On To The Classic Heist Films Before Making 'Tower Heist'

    And More From The Director & Cast Of The High Concept ComedyIn Brett Ratner’s “Tower Heist,” Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy lead an ensemble cast in a story of wronged hotel employees who decide to seek revenge against a ruthless financial world maven who has run off with their pensions. A comedy, heist flick and even a triumphant middle finger to the swindlers that put many out of house and home (though the filmmakers say the ties to current events were unintentional), the film is a crowd-pleasing confection about the little guys finally getting one over on those in authority. A solid supporting cast including Alan Alda, Tea Leoni, Casey Affle...
