Daily Expendable: Bruce Willis

Monday, August 9 by

Who wouldn't want to be Bruce Willis for a day? The man both on screen and off kicks ass, takes names, beds beautiful women, and even plays the harmonica. Ok, I'm willing to look past his Bruno days because he has us given such cool mofos over the years, from John McClane, Corbin Dallas, Joe Hallenback, and yes, even Hudson Hawk is a true favorite of mine. 
Highly Debatable Best Role: John McClane in Die Hard

Weird Fact:

Appointed by President George W. Bush as national spokesman for Children in Foster Care.

‘The Expendables’ Actress Giselle Itie

Monday, August 9 by

Giselle Itie may be unknown in the states unless you flip through Telemondo channels late one night, but she is quite the popular novella star in Mexico and Brazil. Now she's spicing things up in the testosterone-packed The Expendables this week. Thank you Sly for adding some boobs to go with all the guns.
A word from Giselle: "For me it's not the looks in the man; it's his brains."

‘Scott Pilgrim vs. The World’ Spot for Michael Cera Haters

Monday, August 9 by

Some people are sick of Michael Cera's schtick. Then again, some people are sick of Will Ferrell's schtick and The Other Guys still banked 35 million bones this weekend. Obviously quirky character traits grow weary with time (just ask my girlfriend), but I'm not yet bothered by Cera's repeat bumbling everyman performances. If you're on the fence about seeing Scott Pilgrim vs. the World because you don't think you can stand Cera anymore, you should know he gets the sh*t beaten out of him in it. And now there's a fan-made ad that emphasizes that point.

Watch Full First Episode of Showtime’s ‘The Big C’

Monday, August 9 by

Over the years, Showtime has built an impressive stable of shows featuring strong but flawed women. Nancy Botwin from "Weeds" deals drugs, Jackie Peyton from "Nurse Jackie" takes drugs, and Belle from "Secret Diary of Call Girl" sells sex for money. Now we have Cathy Jamison from the upcoming "The Big C" to add to the group. She doesn't dabble in anything illegal, yet, but after she's diagnosed with cancer, she decides to let her freak flag fly.
You can watch the first episode right here, right now. It stars Laura Linney, Oliver Platt and Gabourey Sidibe, and is directed by Bill Condon (Kinsey, Dreamgirls). Let me know what you think in the comments section.
"The Big C" premieres on Showtime next Monday, August 16 at 10:30PM ET/PT.

Cillian Murphy Considering Role In Dumbly-Titled ‘I’m.mortal’

Monday, August 9 by

Gay-mannequin-faced actor Cillian Murphy (pictured above commiting a hate crime) is close to taking a role in Andrew Niccol's upcoming dumbly-titled science fiction drama I'm.mortal. Murphy will join the pretty young cast of Amanda Seyfried and possibly Justin Timberlake, as a future cop known as a Timekeeper. He's said to be "precise as the time he keeps." Essentially, he hunts down those whose time has expired to ensure that everyone stays young and beautiful forever. Just imagine a world governed by the E! Network. (THR)

Quality Cafe Mash-Up

Monday, August 9 by

Maybe you've noticed it before, maybe you haven't, but the Quality Cafe in downtown Los Angeles is one of the most popular eateries in movies. I brought this fact to the attention of our talented editor Matthew Freund and he put together an awesome mash-up of the most memorable scenes. Unfortunately the diner is only used for film shoots, but Morgan Freeman appears to be a regular. I hear he likes his eggs over easy.
Check out the Quality Cafe Mash-Up below.

‘Quantum Leap’ Will Make The Big Screen Jump

Monday, August 9 by

Scott Bakula recently told a room full of nerds that a big screen version of "Quantum Leap" is in the works. Series creator Donald P. Bellisario is currently working on the script, which sadly will not star original stars Bakula and Dean Stockwell due to their age. Though, they are expected to appear in some kind of role.
For those too young to remember and too busy to watch Syfy on weekdays between noon and six, "Quantum Leap" tells the story of a brilliant scientist whose consciousness "leaps" into different bodies throughout history, and must help them right a wrong before travelling on to the next, and hoping that his next leap will be the leap home. I'm pretty excited to see this. It may be our only chance of seeing Hugh Jackman singing back-up for Elvis while wearing a sequin gown. Well, in a non-Rob Marshall directed film, I mean. (Blastr)

‘Entourage’ Just Won’t Die

Monday, August 9 by

"Entourage" is on its way out at HBO. According to Latino Review, the show will air its final episode next summer. But that doesn't mean that (insert douche bag lead character's name here before you publish) and the gang are finished. It seems they'll be living on in movie form.

Mark Wahlberg recently mentioned the likelihood of an "Entourage" film, and now creator Doug Ellin is expressing interest in writing a script. And if HBO's other *sshole-based show, "Sex and the City," is any indication, the network is all about a movie spin off.

The real question is whether the show will stay relevant long enough to warrant a film, or will a movie version suffer from the same indifference as X-Files: I Want to Believe. Based on this season's reviews, fans are already losing interest, and I can't say I blame them. If I wanted to watch a bunch of Hollywood D-Bags having sex, I'd get a part-time job as a maintenance man at the Roosevelt Hotel and secretly plant webcams in all of the suites and public bathrooms. I mean, ya know, if I were so inclined, which I'm totally not.

‘Cloverfield’ Sequel Is a Long Way Off

Monday, August 9 by

Fans of jerky, POV monster movies are in for some bad news. The Cloverfield sequel isn't coming out anytime soon, according to director Matt Reeves. But despite the lack of progress, Reeves assures fans that the film is on both his and J.J. Abrams' to do list.
"It really isn't the moment for [the sequel] to go any further than it has, but it continues to be a priority for both of us," Reeves told the channel. "J.J. is very immersed in putting together 'Super 8.' He's in pre-production and really, really passionately getting that together. And I'm passionately finishing 'Let Me In.'"
You know what I'm passionately finishing? Putting up with your B.S., Matt Reeves! Make a Cloverfield sequel now, or so help me god, I will tear you apart on my personal blog like that monster tore apart the Statue of Liberty. The choice is yours. (Empire Online)

‘Reno 911!’ + ‘Battlestar Galactica’ = Thomas Lennon’s ‘Alabama’

Monday, August 9 by

If you like sketch comedy and sci-fi, you were probably a virgin until at least your early 20's. But the enjoyment you'll get out of Thomas Lennon's new show "Alabama" will more than make up for all those lonely nights.
Billed as a cross between "Reno 911!" and "Battlestar Galactica," the show, which is currently in development for FX, follows the exploits of the USS Alabama on its seven year intergalactic peacekeeping mission. It will take place one-thousand years in the future, and will feature sci-fi staples such as cyborgs, puppet-based aliens, and, of course, your occasional time paradox.
"It’s Reno 911! with occasionally like we pass through a nebula that causes everyone on the ship to hear each other's thoughts.  Sometimes we run into ourselves as babies and then we have to keep the baby version of our-self alive so the future version of us can be there at the time.  You know, sci-fi problems. Reno 911!/sci-fi problems on a very, very sweaty, sweaty, clunky spaceship.”
Filming of the pilot is slated to begin in late September (Collider)

ATM Fans Rejoice for ‘The Human Centipede’ Porn Parody

Sunday, August 8 by

What has six arms, six legs, and a whole lot of chlamydia? The Human Sex-ipede. Yes, they're making a porn parody of the European shock-horror film, The Human Centipede.

For those of you unfamiliar with the film, The Human Centipede is about an insane German doctor who sews people together, anus to mouth. With an ATM fan base already built in, the porn parody was the next logical step, according to famed porn parody director Lee Roy Myers.

"I thought, ‘you know what, this is the perfect concept to base a parody around,'" Myers said. "Anything putting human faces that close to genitals deserves the porn treatment."

There is nothing I could possibly add to that statement. (Movie Line)

Daily Expendable: Randy Couture

Sunday, August 8 by

Randy Couture is an icon of the UFC fighting world, so he fits right into the over pumped world of The Expendables. While he has the least amount of feature film presence, what he lacks in experience, he makes up for with head busting moves on the all-star cast.
Highly Debatable Best Role: Dylan Finn in Redbelt

Daily Expendable: Dolph Lundgren

Saturday, August 7 by

 
Dolph Lundgren has always been known as Rocky Balboa's greatest foe in Rocky IV aka Rocky Fights The Communists. Yet this Swedish-born old school action star has shown to be quite the opposite as he was once a chemical engineer with a Fulbright scholarship to MIT. Dolph has both brains and muscle, which means don't eff with this guy or he'll bust out a can of whoop ass and the periodic table chart on your ass.
Highly Debatable Best Role: Captain Ivan Drago in Rocky IV
Weird Fact: Said to have an I.Q. of 160, but according to himself this is untrue.

Jack Black Keeps Shirley MacLaine Alive for ‘Bernie’

Saturday, August 7 by

Jack Black is reteaming with School of Rock director Richard Linklater for Bernie. Shirley MacLaine will also star and mother everyone on set. THR has the deets:
"Bernie" is set in the small town of Carthage, Texas and follows a Renaissance man-community leader-mortician Bernie (Black) who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a wealthy but very particular widow (MacLaine). When he kills her, he goes to great lengths to maintain the illusion that she is still alive.
Is no one seeing the similarities to Weekend at Bernie's here? You know, the movie where two business executives go visit their boss at his beach house for a weekend, he ends up dying, and they make it look like he's still alive? This new movie is even called BERNIE. At least change the title! And don't think Andrew McCarthy won't call about a cameo. Ever since the failed "Lipstick Jungle" on NBC, he's been waiting patiently on his couch for an opportunity like this.
