Irresistible is a new political comedy written and directed by former Daily Show host Jon Stewart. The trailer debuted this morning, and it looks hilarious. Starring Steve Carell (The Office, The Morning Show) as a Democratic strategist helping a small town candidate (Chris Cooper) in a mayoral race in the swing state of Wisconsin. It […]
When Fred Rogers passed in 2003, it was difficult to imagine who could ever fill his shoes or those cardigans. How about his sixth cousin? That's what Tom Hanks found out when ancestry.com traced his genealogy and discovered his lineage converges with the former host of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. Hanks plays Rogers in A Beautiful […]
Tom Hanks suits up for a role of several lifetimes – donning the genuine smile, signature sweaters, and penny loafers of Fred Rogers in Sony's A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. If there was ever a figure to remind us what to do in troubling uncertain times, Rogers was always there to reinforce our resolve […]
In Demolition, Jake Gyllenhaal stars as a grief-stricken man who turns to disassembling everything around him in the hopes of understanding his sorrow and his late wife. It is a solid premise, but the Jean-Marc Vallée film never quite dissembles the idea in an interesting fashion despite a solid cast. In the early part of […]
Fox Searchlight released the trailer for Jake Gyllenhaal's upcoming film, Demolition. Directed by Wild and Dallas Buyers Club helmer Jean-Marc Vallée, the film centers on man writing rambling letters to a vending machine company as he begins to demolish his home.

It seems that early designs for The Lizard in The Amazing Spider-Man were based upon Chris Cooper. It seems fairly likely, then, that he was attached to the role at some point, or at least on the Want! list. These images, courtesy of designer Aaron Sims, show how Cooper can be effectively morphed into increasingly […]
The full, official character descriptions for The Muppets are rather long, and occasionally a little unnecessary (some of these guys do not need big introductions) so let's start with my edited highlights. I've skipped the big fleshy characters and kept to the little fuzzy ones. With his Kermit t-shirt and watch, Walter is a devoted […]
It's pretty rare that Kermit the Frog gives an interview, so it's been an uncommon joy to hear what he has to say about the currently filming Muppet movie. Well, except for when what he says is quietly undercut with melancholy: People are used to seeing my being silly, but I'm very dramatic in this […]
One jammy Little Bleeder "Dustin" was down on Hollywood Boulevard during the filming of The Muppets this week. They had their camera to hand, so they took a few shots… and in the process destroyed any illusion that these are walking, talking, sentient beings in their own right.* Our Little Bleeder's account of what was filmed actually […]
