    Sam Rockwell On Going Dark for 'A Single Shot,' His Take on VOD and Where He Stands on Gun Legislation

    It's been a kudo-worthy season for Sam Rockwell, who emerged as the motor-mouthed, big-hearted highlight of July's shore-town dramedy "The Way, Way Back," and now ends the summer with a bang in David M.

    Tribeca Review: Hollywood Satire 'Trust Me' Continues Industry Self-Love Designed As Self-Mockery

    It takes some audacity to open your film with an homage to "Sunset Boulevard," but that doesn't seem to worry Clark Gregg. A journeyman actor valued by filmmakers like David Mamet, Gregg has had a dynamic few years, making his directorial debut with Chuck Palahniuk adaptation "Choke" and an attentio...
