5 Secrets of George Lazenby

Tuesday, September 14 by

You might think since George Lazenby only got to play James Bond once, it must’ve meant he sucked. Actually, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is considered one of the best Bond movies ever. If you’re a Bond fan and you haven’t seen it, watch it now. It really holds up especially well after the gritty Daniel Craig ones. Once you see it, you’ll really want to know more about the mysterious one time only Bond.

41 years later, Lazenby has a sense of humor about it. He goes out to autograph signings and he attended an American Cinematheque showing of On Her Majesty’s at the Aero Theater in Santa Monica. After conflicting stories on DVD extras and books and articles, Lazenby told the audience what really happened on his Bond movie.
 

Lauren Ambrose Strolls Into ‘Wanderlust’

Tuesday, September 14 by

Lauren Ambrose is beefing up her awesome comedy resume by joining Paul Rudd, Jennifer Aniston, and Justin Theroux in David Wain's Wanderlust. Ambrose, who is best known for roles in "Six Feet Under" and Can't Hardly Wait but better known to me as a girl who visited my college for a week and may have quite possibly made number twosies in my bathroom (unconfirmed), will play a member of a commune that Rudd and Aniston's characters encounter during their move to Atlanta in the Judd Apatow-produced film.
With her "Six Feet Under" co-stars Michael C. Hall and Peter Krause both finding success on the small screen, this may just be the launching pad that launches Ambrose into the mainstream. At the very least, it will ensure that she gets to make awkward small talk with Martin Starr at a future Apatow Family barbeque. (Variety)

Steve Buscemi Joins Sigourney Weaver in ‘Rampart’

Tuesday, September 14 by

Above: Steve Buscemi in the upcoming HBO series, "Boardwalk Empire."
Rampart just got a whole lot sexier. Actor Steve Buscemi has joined the cast of the upcoming crime drama, which already includes Sigourney Weaver, Ice Cube, Woody Harrelson and Robin Wright. Buscemi, an obvious inspiration to Internet writers everywhere, will reportedly play the awesome ugly dude everybody likes even though he's ugly.

The script for Rampart was written by Oren Moverman and novelist James Ellroy. Ellroy's involvement means that the film will be set in L.A., and will involve the LAPD, probably with a healthy dose of police corruption and racial slurs thrown in for good measure.

Filming is set to begin in October. (Empire Online)

Pacino, Pesci to Join De Niro, Scorsese for ‘The Irishman’

Tuesday, September 14 by

How many Italians does it take to make The Irishman? At least four, from what I can tell.

Deadline is reporting that Al Pacino and Joe Pesci are joining Robert De Niro for Martin Scorsese's planned adaptation of I Heard You Paint Houses, a book chronicling the life of Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, a reputed hitman who some suspect was behind the disappearance of Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa.

While the film would mark the first Scorsese/De Niro collaberation since Casino (1995), chances are it won't begin production anytime soon. Scorsese is currently working on Hugo Cabret and doing press for the HBO series, "Boardwalk Empire." The famed director is also slated to film a Frank Sinatra biopic, which would further postpone any work on The Irishman.

Personally, all this talk about Irishmen and Italians is making me a little uncomfortable. Like my grandma always said, the only people worth a good god damn come from eastern Bulgaria. It's our world, and you punks are just living in it. International calling code 395 4 life, bitch! (Collider)

No Arms Get Cut Off In This ’127 Hours’ Clip

Monday, September 13 by

Warning: This clip from Danny Boyle's 127 Hours doesn't contain any of James Franco's arms getting cut off. Warning: It does contain Kate Mara getting wet. If you believe the latter might make you faint or nauseous I suggest you go no further.
Audience members at the Telluride and the Toronto Film Festivals have been passing out and seizing do to the graphic nature of 127 Hours. The movie is about a dude who has to cut off his own arm after it gets really REALLY stuck in crevice **resists urge to make crevice joke**. If you know you can't handle that, why would you go see it?! Stay for the first half with the swimming and laughing, and leave once the screaming starts.

Review: ‘House’ Season 7 Premiere

Monday, September 13 by

I’m not spoiling anything for “House” fans by saying that House and Cuddy got together at the end of last season. That’s what we’ve been waiting six years for and spent all summer thinking about.

I’ll discuss it vaguely, so skip this if you don’t want to know ANYTHING. I love the way they came back, I love the way they handled it, I love the character moments it offered for both actors. There, is that too spoiler-y? Oh, can I say it’s hot too? Something that happens in this episode is hot. But I won’t ruin the dirty details, I'll just give you the skinny.

Jon Hamm: From Mad Man to ‘Superman’?

Monday, September 13 by

'Mad Men' star Jon Hamm is a serious contender for the lead in the planned Superman reboot, Latino Review is reporting. His physique, strong jaw, and slicked black hair make him a natural fit for the character. However, Hamm himself expressed reservations about playing a superhero in a recent interview with MTV.
"It's a tricky road to go down with some of those heroes, because they're not flawed. Superman is Superman – he's invincible, so where's the drama?"
Where's the drama with superheroes? Obviously this guy hasn't seen a little film called Fantastic Four: The Rise Of The Silver Surfer! If he had, he'd understand the ridiculousness of his statement. I hope the producers of the new Superman reboot do a careful vetting before they jump into bed with this guy.

James Cameron’s ‘True Lies’ Coming to the Small Screen

Monday, September 13 by

It was this, or a pic of Jamie Lee Curtis. No offense to Curtis, but I stand by my decision.
Director James Cameron is heading back to the small screen with a planned television adaptation of True Lies. The 1994 film, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as a secret agent and Jamie Lee Curtis as his bored, unknowing wife, was a box-office hit and also garnered critical acclaim. Deadline Hollywood is reporting that the series, which is about to be shopped to the networks, will be produced by Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV.

This marks Cameron's second foray into the world of television. In 2000, he produced the Fox series "Dark Angel," which only lasted two seasons, but still managed to introduce the world to the wonders of Jessica Alba's 19-year-old ass. Here's hoping that Cameron's latest effort has as profound an impact on our society.

‘Outlaw’ Actress Carly Pope

Monday, September 13 by

 
Carly Pope is a Canadian babe, who you might remember as the rebellious Sam McPherson from Ryan Murphy's pre-"Glee" high school show "Popular." A self-confessed obsession with Conan O'Brien gives her even more points for lonely geeks like myself. This week she finds herself back on the tube with NBC's new lawyer drama "Outlaw," which oddly enough is produced by Conando, himself. 
A word from Carly: "I kind of see myself as a cartoon that's on its way to becoming a real person that has to find that special amulet or mushroom to get to that next realm or level." 
Check to see if your pupils are dilated. You sound high.

Dan Aykroyd Might Reunite With His Blues Brother On ‘The Defenders’

Monday, September 13 by

When CBS presented their new fall drama “The Defenders” at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, the producers told the press that they were eying Dan Aykroyd to play a tough judge who Jim Belushi will face later in the season. The new Blues Brothers go way back, so creator and executive producer Kevin Kennedy thinks it will be easy to get Aykroyd. Belushi actually wanted him sooner but Kennedy didn’t want to stunt cast the pilot.

“Obviously he and Jim are friends,” Kennedy told Screen Junkies on the red carpet at the Paley center. “I believe he did a couple of “According to Jim”s. They’ve talked about it. Jim asked him. Jim suggested him to play the judge in the pilot and we said, ‘You know what? We’d like to save that because we think we could really plan for it and write something specific for it.’ So we talked about it and we asked Danny if he’d be interested in doing it. In theory, yes. It’s a matter of time. It’s a matter of making the schedules work and obviously Danny has to like the script. It’s a long way down the road but it’s a dream.”

Guy Trips Balls During ’2001: A Space Odyssey’

Monday, September 13 by

This is what happens when you show a Stanley Kubrick restrospective in Hollywood. During the screening of 2001: A Space Odyssey this past weekend at the Egyptian Theater, a man started shouting at the screen and the audience due to a bad acid trip. Why you'd willing drop acid and then go to a crowded theater to see a movie that's inevitably going to blow your mind is beyond me. Thank God they got him out before the Star Child scene. He might have suffered several seizures at once.

‘True Blood’ Recap: Evil Is Going On S3E12

Monday, September 13 by

Previously on "True Blood," we found out that Sookie's part fairy. We found out Crystal's a werepanther. Jason promised to help Crystal save her crystal meth commune. Sam flashbacked on his life of crime and kicked Tommy out. Tommy broke into Sam's safe. Arlene attempted a mystical abortion (unsuccessful). Lafayette got Jesus into V. Jess got back together with Hoyt, who let her feed off of him. And Eric tricked Russell into the sunlight, (potentially) sacrificing himself to kill The King. Onto the season finale of "True Blood."

Mickey Rourke Takes New Job As Mafia Contract Killer

Monday, September 13 by

Even assassins have their soft spots.
Mickey Rourke has signed on for the feature adaptation of the book "The Ice Man: Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer." David McKenna (American History X) is writing the script about Richard "The Ice Man" Kuklinksi, a professional assassin who doubled as a loving father and husband in New Jersey.
Hmmmm, sounds like Tony Soprano, does it not? But considering Kuklinksi isn't Italian, this story will have less capicola and guys shouting, "OH EH! EH OH!" Or maybe it's just Tony Danza that does that. Either way, Rourke is playing an assassin, and he's a method actor, so if you start hearing stories of hookers being found with double-taps to the chest, don't look at me. It was probably Rourke. NOT me. (Variety)
