    Director Jim Sheridan Didn't Like 'Dream House' Either, Tried To Take Name Off Film

    Could Direct 'Sheriff Street Stories' About Childhood In Ireland NextIt's always disappointing when strong directors come out with a film that is absolutely terrible. Jim Sheridan's "Dream House," with an 8% critics' rating on Rotten Tomatoes and only $14.5 million dollars in box office so far, initially had a boatload of promise with charismatic stars Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts, but what we saw was terrifyingly bad (and not because trailers promised a horror story à la Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining").

    Naomi Watts Looks Dowdy In First Look Photo From Clint Eastwood's 'J. Edgar'

    Plus New Photos Of Sarah Jessica Parker, Lea Michele & Sofia Vergara In 'New Year's Eve'We suppose she wasn't meant to be glamorous or pretty in this picture. WB has released a first look photo of Naomi Watts in Clint Eastwood's biopic "J. Edgar" starring Leonardo DiCaprio, and the actress looks positively dowdy and frumpy. That's by design. She's playing Helen Gandy, a Justice Department file clerk who ended up being Hoover’s personal secretary. Not the sexiest role in the film, though in one version of Dustin Lance Black's screenplay, if we recall correctly, there is one brief sequence where she and Hoover attempt to go out on a date, which...

    Jesse Eisenberg & Naomi Watts Circle Noah Baumbach's 'While We're Young'

    It's been a bit of a casting revolving door for Noah Baumbach's next effort "While We're Young." Last year, Ben Stiller, Gerta Gerwig and James Franco were all set to team on the film. Then, shortly after that was announced, Gerwig left and Cate Blanchett joined, only for both the actress and Franco...

    Former Wife Swapping Yankee Mike Kekich Looks To Block 'The Trade' With Ben Affleck & Matt Damon

    Rebecca Hall, Rachel Weisz & Naomi Watts Wishlist Candidates For Female Lead RolesRanked #35 on the Black List in 2009, Dave Mandel's script for the true story tale "The Trade" has been in the works for a while and was first announced as a starring vehicle for Ben Affleck and Matt Damon last winter.
