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)

10 Most Bad-Ass Devils in Film

Monday, September 13 by

Devils and demons have possessed the silver screen in many formats, from comedies to cartoons, CGI depictions, psychological thrillers, and fantasy worlds. Yet the most bad-ass, ripsnorting, fire breathing incarnations that we remember are the ones that send chills down our spines. With Devil taking over theaters Friday, I thought I'd compile a list of the 10 most bad-ass Devils in movies. Nothing is better than witnessing your favorite actor playing the ultimate screen villain of old Beelzebub himself. Hail Satan!
 
Al Pacino as John Milton – The Devil's Advocate

While the movie is just a silly combination of John Grisham novels meets the production designer of Rosemary’s Baby, there's plenty of hot and steamy sex with Connie Nelson and Charlize Theron. Plus Al Pacino plays the devil, so do I really need to say anything more?
 

Matthew McConaughey to Star In Non-Romantic Comedy

Monday, September 13 by

Matthew McConaughey has signed on to star in a comedy, but in a shocking twist, it won't involve Sarah Jessica Parker or the ghosts of girlfriends past. It will, however, involve Academy Award winning director William Friedkin and a script by Pulitzer Prize winning writer Tracy Letts.

Killer Joe, co-staring Emile Hirsch, follows a pair of siblings "who plot the death of their mother for the insurance money." McConaughey will play "Killer Joe" Cooper, a dirty cop hired to do the deed.

Will McConaughey's collaboration with Friedkin (The French Connection, The Exorcist) prove as successful as his previous collaboration with director Tom Dey (Failure to Launch, Marmaduke)? Only time will tell. (THR)

Game On for HBO’s ‘Game Of Thrones’ Teaser Trailer

Monday, September 13 by

Good news for fans of epic fantasy and, or birds flying in slow motion. HBO has released a new teaser trailer for their epic fantasy series, "Game of Thrones."

The clip, which ran before last night's episode of "True Blood," featured your standard fanta-crap fare: men on horses, sword fights, a single hot chick with long, flowing hair. But it also contained a lot of slow-motion shots of a raven flying. I'm sure the raven has some significance, but I'm not going to look it up. That crap's for dorks, yo! And I'm no dork! I'll just check my fantasy football stats, instead. (Deadline)

‘Eastbound And Down’ Season Two Trailer, The Return Of Kenny Powders.. er… Kenny Powers!

Sunday, September 12 by

You pretty much have the whole entire force of God coming at you via Kenny Powers in this new trailer for "Eastbound & Down's" second season. You also have cornrows, a dwarf, hot Mexican women, an army of jet skis, mopeds, and drunken firing squads. This is the closest we will ever come to a Kevin Federline biopic.
Hopefully.

Lord of the Rings: Boyz N the Ring Trailer

Sunday, September 12 by

In this parody trailer, a new kind of Hobbit is in town, and it's packin' heat. These little guys will street sweep The Shire and set your punk-ass elf-ass straight at any counsel. This summer, Gandalf brings gangta to Middle Earth.

Noomi Rapace Nabs Role In ‘Sherlock Holmes 2′

Saturday, September 11 by

There's a clue inside the baby.
The original Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Noomi Rapace has become the new "it" actress in Hollywood. She recently signed on to deliver death alongside Jeremy Renner in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, and now she's secured a role in Sherlock Holmes 2. The logline is being kept under wraps, but Noomi is said to be playing a French Gypsy. It is unclear if the role is romantic in nature. One would think Holmes would be smart enough to not trust a Gypsy, but when they cast an evil spell on you at a street fair you can't resist them. It's the only way I can explain the atrocious lamp in my living room. (THR)

Gwyneth Paltrow Is Bigger Than Jesus In ‘Country Strong’ Trailer

Friday, September 10 by

The trailer for Country Strong has strummed its way into our Internets, and I seriously think somebody needs to check out Gwyneth Paltrow's Netflix rental history. If The Blind Side and Crazy Heart are on there side-by-side, then I call shenanigans. Between the similarities to those films, and the scenes where people cry so hard they fall on their butts (I counted two), this is such an obvious ploy for an Oscar or a Grammy. In truth, they'd be lucky to get a Razzie for this. Hasn't Sandra Bullock had enough taken from her?

Roger Ebert Revives ‘At The Movies’

Friday, September 10 by

Roger Ebert isn't one to let a lack of a jaw stop him from jawing on about what movies do and don't suck ass. With "At The Movies" officially off-the-air as of August 14th, Ebert has unveiled his newest program, "Roger Ebert Presents 'At The Movies'." It's pretty much "At The Movies" but with occasional appearances from the Roger Ebert Cyborg.
Appearing as the show's main critics are Christy Lemire and Elvis Mitchell. And if Ebert's sagging chin flesh pouch and Elvis's dreadlocks don't do it for you, Kim Morgan will also appear in weekly segments.

It'll be like when the hot weather girl shows up on that fat guy's show on Telemundo. (Sun Times)
