Tom Hanks has never been better in this retelling of the famous USAir flight that ended up in the Hudson River.
Scott Eastwood on His Rise to Fame: “The only thing I can say is that I’ve been doing this for 12 years”
“As quick as somebody can be ‘the guy’ in Hollywood, he can be gone the next minute. For me, it’s about doing great work” – Scott Eastwood
Director Clint Eastwood narrates a scene where Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper) arrives back in the U.S. and receives a call from his wife, Taya (Sienna Miller)
Renée Marino makes her film debut in the long-awaited adaption of the hit Broadway musical, Jersey Boys. In the film, she plays Mary Delgado, a role she first played on the National tour and on Broadway and it definitely shows because she really is great in the part.
Jersey Boys has not only been a Broadway hit since opening in 2005 at the August Wilson Theatre, but has been a popular favorite in in theaters all over the world. All in all, the various Jersey Boys productions have grossed over one billion in sales over the past eight years — so all those talented performers must have been doing something right.
Nobody would fault you if upon hearing the name Matthew Lillard your first thoughts were of a talking dog and the Mystery Machine. Even IMDb’s #1 “Known for” for Lillard is 2002’s live-action Scooby-Doo, in which Lillard somehow managed to pull off the perfect Shaggy. Considering that Lillard has since stared in a live-action sequel to Scooby-Doo and has also been doing the voice for the animated Shaggy for the last several years he isn’t shying away from what some actors might consider a pigeonholing role.
Robert Patrick on Becoming an Actor: “The guys who make it to the major leagues are not there because they are lucky”
I can’t help it — even though it was over twenty years ago now since the release of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, whenever I see Robert Patrick on screen I end up thinking of him as the T-1000. Though I don’t think he minds that one bit, Patrick has had a lot of great roles since then, and he is his usual stoic self as the General Manager for the Atlanta Braves in Trouble with the Curve, which stars Clint Eastwood.
Clint Eastwood: “Acting gets in your blood after so many years, and you just always like revisiting it”
There have been numerous actors who have turned to directing (such as recent convert Ben Affleck), but none of them have quite as impressive of a resume as Clint Eastwood, who for decades has been praised for both his acting and his directing and is one of the very few in the industry who can be undoubtedly labeled “iconic.”
The three-time Oscar nominated Amy Adams is so beautiful that if she wanted to she could have made an entire career out of starring as the ditzy, pretty face lead in cheesy romantic comedies. Thank goodness she didn’t, because along with cute family films like Enchanted and The Muppets, Adams has starred in heavy dramas like Doubt, The Fighter, and perhaps the most challenging role of her career, The Master.
Leonardo DiCaprio: “I really am motivated by being able to work with great people and create a body of work that I can look back and be proud of”
Though Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar didn’t do the business — or get the critical acclaim — as many of the director’s recent films, there was significant praise for Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance as the enigmatic J. Edgar Hoover.
Leonardo DiCaprio: “When I can’t immediately define the character, and there’s an element of mystery to it and still a lot to be explored, that’s when I say yes”
Clint Eastwood’s films always come with great expectations — he is one of the few filmmakers who seems to always get magnificent reviews — but the expectations for Eastwood’s J. Edgar might be even more anticipated than usual since the film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, an actor with a reputation for appearing in excellent films himself.
