“Hey andPOP,” you tell us, “you’re posting so many videos by Jimmy Kimmel.”
Well, it’s because the late night host is on a roll. It must be nice that Kimmel has tons of celebrity friends that he can call up to put together these hilarious video compilations. Anyone who can get Meryl Streep to own a mustache and Matt Damon to grope his grape suit (and then cut him from the movie) is good in my books.
This trailer for “Movie: The Movie” is supposed to sell the most epic film in history. The A-list cast goes on: George Clooney, Colin Farrell, Samuel L. Jackson, Charlize Theron, Tom Hanks, Martin Scorsese, Emily Blunt, Jessica Biel, Jason Bateman, Chewbacca and many more. It also features every stereotypical plot and genre in movie history. Why see ten movies when you can get all the action in this one?
Chad Michael Murray – or should we now say, Chad Murray – is dropping his middle name, Michael, in an attempt to “reshape his image”, according to Perez Hilton, becoming…drumroll please: Chad Murray. Is this what z-listers do now when they’re bored?
The former One-Tree-Hiller, who left the show a couple of seasons ago, is still grateful for the experience. The actor said:
“I’m grateful to have had it. I’m fortunate to have had it. I learned so, so very much from so many people. I was able to kind of grow up and become the man I’m becoming today. I just feel very fortunate to have been in that position, to be in Wilmington, North Carolina, to be in place that’s kind of smaller than Los Angeles. It’s just different. I enjoyed my experience there.” Wonder how much he got paid to say that one.
Perez goes on to report that Murray says his dream is to works with the likes of Darren Aronofsky, Martin Scorsese and Terry Gillam. “I love The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,” says Murray. “It’s what film should be about. It’s true imagination where you go anywhere. It was just so beautiful. Definitely one of my top 10 films.”
It’s uncertain whether he’ll return for the finale of the show – which I am still sceptical to believe since this seems to be the show that doesn’t give up, even after it loses its main character – but we can only hope that Luke will return to Tree Hill for one last time!
Don’t get me wrong, I do love Chad, but come on – how can a true fan of One Tree Hill not hate him for making the show absolutely terrible after he left?
But for now, we all have his April cover of Troix magazine to look forward to! Can’t wait!
Wolf Of Wallstreet is a film that has been long in the works. Director, Ridley Scott has just dropped out of the project due his new development the Alien prequel, Prometheus. According to Totalfilm.com, veteran director, Martin Scorsese has just signed on to direct the film and he will be working with his favorite young actor, none other than Leonardo DiCaprio. This will mark the fifth time that the duo has collaborated.
Wolf Of Wallstreet is based on Jordan Belfort’s autobiographical novel. The story follows Belfort’s rise and demise. He was one of the most infamous names in American finance, a savvy millionaire stock-trader. But as the story goes, Belfort got a little off track and found himself in a whirlpool drugs, alcohol, sex, and just happened to sink a 170ft motor yacht. He ended up in prison for 22 months on charges of market manipulation.The story line sounds something like a mix between a Bret Easton Ellis novel (American Psycho) and a Thom Wolfe novel (Bonfire of the Vanities).
Hopefully Scorsese and DiCaprio will deliver. They certainly need a comeback after last year’s atrocity, Shutter Island.
Before directing Wolf Of Wallstreet, Scorsese has another project in the works, Silence, also a book adaptation a Jesuit drama set in the 17th century that follows two priests facing Japanese persecution.
The legendary film director has said that he believes Rupert Grint, known more commonly as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies, could be the next big thing in male acting, reports PerezHilton.
“I thought [Grint] was a great actor in the Harry Potter movies,” Scorsese reportedly told sources. “In a lot of scenes, the boy stole the show.”
Scorsese explains the importance of branching out into different roles to avoid risk of being typecast as Ron Weasley forever.
“He will always have respect for the movies that gave him such a huge break, but at his age it’s important he doesn’t become a typecast,” the director said. “He has to do something really out of his comfort zone in the next few years – play a gangster, play a dirty cop, play a kid with learning difficulties. I would be interested in working with him.”
“I would have no issues casting him as a gangster, he is a very talented young man,” he continued. “When Leo [DiCaprio] was in Titanic and Romeo and Juliet, nobody saw him becoming a bad ass in movies like The Departed. But he has become one of the greatest actors of all time. The very same could be true for Rupert.”
Strong words from an important man! Pressure’s on, Rupert!
