Ryan Gosling learns that politics aren’t all just fun and intern sex in the trailer for George Clooney‘s The Ides Of March. Sure, there is some fun and intern sex to be had, but there’s also hard moral decisions and dirty pool. The story is loosely based on the primary run of Howard Dean, and follows Gosling as he uses tactics he disagrees with to try to get Clooney the Democratic nomination over Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s rival senator Paul Giamatti also stars as Hoffman’s campaign manager, Marisa Tomei plays a New York Times reporter, and Evan Rachel Wood plays the intern with whom it is fun to have sex.

Marisa Tomei appears in Crazy, Stupid, Love, out this week. Tomei has garnered critical acclaim in the last few years for her role in The Wrestler, and is generally known for playing emotionally damaged characters. She’ll appear in The Ides of March later this year and will have a role in Lucky Them in 2012.

A word from Marisa: “I don’t prefer much of film over stage… The only thing I prefer is the paycheck.”

Aaron Sorkin is looking for ladies. A tracking shot through a busy TV network hallway ends in a boardroom, where three actresses are negotiating for parts in Sorkin’s new HBO pilot for a series about – what else? – the making of a television show.

Currently called More As This Story Develops, the show takes place behind the scenesall the scenes – at a cable news show. Alison Pill (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) may play an associate producer, while Marisa Tomei has gotten even closer to the role of executive producer. She’s so close, you guys. Meanwhile, Olivia MunnThe Daily Show“… but really, G4‘s”Attack of the Show“) is in talks to play the sexy host of a financial show host on the same network. Olivia Munn as a sexy cable TV host? Yeah, that’s gonna be a major stretch for her.

Jeff Daniels stars as show host Will McCallister. (Deadline)

Many performers want to appear in an Aaron Sorkin production, but so few actually get the chance. Now it looks like Marisa Tomei is one of the lucky few to be able to breathe those sacred words, while walking at the same time. The production in question is an HBO series currently titled “More As the Story Develops,” about a jackass news anchor in the Bill O’Reilly mold, played by Jeff Daniels. Marisa Tomei would be playing to type as a news producer, described thusly:

“ageless and beautiful … funny, silly, even sheepish, right up until the moment she wallops you in the kneecaps.”

Yeah, that sounds about right. And after that Mickey Rourke and Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Jeff Daniels is practically out of Tomei’s league. (NY Post)

The new ensemble romantic comedy Crazy Stupid Love has a shiny new trailer, and it looks better than the usual crop of mid-to-upper level romcoms. Steve Carell heads a top notch cast including Julianne Moore, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Kevin Bacon, and Marisa Tomei. The film appears to be about a recently divorced/separated man (Carrel) who gets a bit of a “Hitch” treatment from younger, suaver, and all around alpha-er male Ryan Gosling. Oh, and then Emma Stone shows up and I got all distracted and couldn’t focus on anything else that happens. It’s directed by Bad Santa duo Glenn Ficarra and John Requa and comes out July 29th.

Looks like Hollywood’s most renowned supporting actors are teaming up for a film of their own. Marisa Tomei, Thomas Haden Church, Allison Janney, and Alec Baldwin have all signed on for Lucky Them. Who will step up?!!

Co-written by the awesomely-named Huck Botko and the normally-named Emily Wachtel, the story follows a rock journalist assigned to track down her ex-boyfriend. Botko is also on directing duties and Joanne Woodward is attached to executive produce in lieu on Paul Newman. Botko’s previous works The Last Exorcism and The Virginity Hit didn’t really catch on with audiences. I guess that’s why Kate Hudson isn’t attached to this. It’s clearly a Kate Hudson plot, yet no Kate Hudson. (Variety)

The post Marisa Tomei And Sarah Jessica Parker Might Be ‘Married And Cheating’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Hollywood is all about trends. And unconventional sexual relationships are so hot right now, as in No Strings Attached and the upcoming Friends With Benefits. So leave it to some “independent” smart aleck to shake up the formula and make a movie about run-of-the-mill married people who are cheating on their spouses. That smart aleck is Raymond de Felitta, and that movie is Married and Cheating. And who would even dare star in such an affront to human relationships? Reportedly, noted “Seinfeld” guest star Marisa Tomei and noted Mars Attacks! star Sarah Jessica Parker. If the title’s not enough for you, here’s what it’s about:

“[I]t follows three couples as they navigate the ups and downs of their lives and deal with the ramifications of their decisions.”

With Parker and Tomei being courted for the movie, that leaves 4 more main characters to be cast, if my analytical supercomputer is to be believed. B.R.U.C.E doesn’t have any idea who they might be though, so I guess we’ll have to wait and see. (via CinemaBlend)

Review: The Lincoln Lawyer http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-the-lincoln-lawyer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-the-lincoln-lawyer/#comments Tue, 08 Mar 2011 20:08:48 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=102974 A perfectly average legal drama.

The post Review: The Lincoln Lawyer appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>

The Lincoln Lawyer is a perfectly average legal drama. I trust that the book is exactly like this, totally programmed to hit standard beats in the plot. It’ll serve its purpose in theaters just like a paperback novel does.

Michael Haller (Matthew McConaughey) is a lawyer working out of his car, a Lincoln Continental. He’s so slick and smooth talking, he gets a judge to give him an extension while he waits for a client to extend his retainer. Then he goads the client for money for an expert witness, when he really already has the witness in hand.

You learn just enough about Haller to like him, which is the standard cliché. He takes care of his chauffeur, keeping him employed even after he got his own driver’s license back. He has a daughter with prosecutor Maggie (Marisa Tomei), and the only reason they broke up is because they’re on different sides of the court.

The real case is Louis Roulet (Ryan Phillipe), a rich boy accused of beating lady of the night Reggie Campo (Margarita Levieva). Louis is hard to like because he’s so privileged and frequently uses an ignorant epithet for gays. Of course, the case isn’t simply he said/she said so Haller’s values are tested.

The point of the movie is to take Haller from a guy so smooth he doesn’t even need an office to a haggard, disheveled wreck. In the beginning, he manipulates the media and the D.A. but Louis really turns the tables on Haller. If you want to see McConaughey sweat, this is the movie for you.

Haller still does a good job for Louis. He baits prosecutor Ted Minton (Josh Lucas) into revealing an attack on Louis’ mother, so the jury ends up sympathizing. We knew about the attack but how it comes up in trial is skillful lawyering. Also Lucas and McConaughey engage in a drawl off.

The plot is smug and contrived. Everything works out neatly but the film moves through the plot briskly. The courtroom scenes really have no personality. There’s no political agenda or flair like on “Boston Legal.” Even the one-liners like Corliss the snitch’s (Shea Whigham) comments on the stand or Val Valenzuela’s (John Leguizamo) research comments are not funny. The audience sort of laughs because it’s the right time, but they’re not funny.

I thin The Lincoln Lawyer should represent the Fast and the Furious gang. He’s on the road, they’re on the run, can he get them out of trouble? That’s a movie I would see.

Here's a look at the set.

Laughing, shouting, pacing around while thinking – these are three of the many actions we’ve come to expect from George Clooney‘s actor toolbox over the years. In these set pics from the upcoming Ides of March, the Cloon does not disappoint. If the film has this many different verbs acted out, I’m sold. More so if they’re acted out in 3D.

Clooney co-wrote, directs and stars in – get ready to use your “shocked” face for a moment – a politically themed movie based loosely on Howard Dean. Originally a play by Beau Willimon, Ides of March is about an idealistic press secretary (Ryan Gosling) who falls victim to the big, bad Washington machine. At one point, Gosling is literally captured and eaten by a giant machine wearing an Uncle Sam hat. But not really.

The cast is impressive. Besides Clooney and Gosling, the film also stars Paul Giamatti, Jeffrey Wright, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood. They’re eyeing/idesing a December 2011 – January 2012 release. (/Film)

In this second trailer for The Lincoln Lawyer, Matthew McConaughey plays the finest car-based defender that money can buy. This time around we get an inkling more about the film’s plot and an answer to the important question, “Why a car?” The answer is simple: because offices suck.

McConaughey gets the case of his career when he’s hired to clear Ryan Phillippe after he’s been accused of imitating Charlie Sheen. However, as McConaughey learns, the golden boy isn’t as innocent as he seems. I love how the courtroom scene will undoubtedly play out.

McConaughey: “You need to confess.”

Phillippe: “No.”

McConaughey: “It would be a lot cooler if you did.”

Judge: “Case closed.”

Bailiff cues up Rupert Holmes song and everyone parties in the court room.

Never hire a lawyer who works out of their car. That’s just a general rule of thumb. In this trailer for The Lincoln Lawyer, Matthew McConaughey does exactly that — tools around town in a Lincoln while doling out shady legal advice. If he cared about the environment he’d have studied to be a Prius Lawyer.

The film has a pretty diverse cast: McConaughey, Marisa Tomei, Ryan Phillippe, William H. Macy, Michael Pena, Margarita Levieva, and most notably Josh Lucas. What was Brad Furman thinking when he cast McConaughey and Lucas against each other? Doesn’t he know that they can’t be in the same place at the same time? A) it confuses the baby, and B) if they touch, the universe will fold in on itself.

During her more than 30 year span as an actress of the stage and screen, she has aged like a fine wine in hotness. Both Before The Devil Knows Your Dead and The Wrestler can a test to that (nakey scenes). With this week's Cyrus opening up, she puts her smokin' hot talents to good use by playing the ultimate MILF role to Jonah Hill and John C. Reily.A word from Marisa: "I'm not that big a fan of marriage as an institution, and I don't know why women need to have children to be seen as complete human beings."It's like she was sculpted and programmed by a man and then sent out into the world to enchant us. Whoever is responsible deserves The Noble Peace Prize. See more pics of perfect Tomei after the jump.
