Spotlight On Australian Entertainers

7/21/2008 9:00am EDT
Russell Crowe
What is it about Aussies that Americans find so fascinating? Is it the cute accents? The laid-back attitudes? The "party animal" reputations? It could be a mix of all of these traits. It could also be because, although we speak the same language and our cultures have many similarities, many of us know very little about Australia. That strange yet familiar vibe makes those down under denizens appear exciting and mysterious - an irresistible combo!

Since Americans are also fascinated with celebrities, it's no surprise that so many awesome Aussie entertainers have found fame in the U.S. ...

A stellar cast that included Eric Bana and Academy Award winner Jennifer Connelly made up the leads, while a realistic-enough CG Hulk proved to gain support from the fan community. So where did things go wrong? Well, if you saw the film's opening weekend you probably spent the first 45 minutes wondering if you had stumb...

Brad Pitt
Today's cinemaphiles have yet to come to terms with the career of one Brad Pitt. Dismissed by most as a Hollywood tabloid star, few have openly included him in the category "Best Leading Men Of All Time" where he deserves to be.

Too many have placed too much focus on his relationships with Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie, rather than confronting that which we know deep down in our hearts to be true: Brad Pitt is a great actor.

He is so great that his performances in films like Snatch (2000), Ocean's 11 (2001) and Ocean's Twelve (2004) and 12 Monkeys (1995) d...

Ewan McGregor
James Bond bosses reportedly rejected 007 contender Ewan McGregor because he's too short to play the dashing spy. A leaked email allegedly says the 5' 10" hunk was thought to be too little to play Bond, according to reports.

The memo from Barbara Broccoli's Eon Productions also detailed why other stars in the running to play Bond were ruled out. It said X-Men hunk Hugh Jackman was "too fey", while Irish hellraiser Colin Farrell was deemed to be "too sleazy". Eric Bana was written off as "not handsome enough."

Meanwhile the new 007, Layer Cake star Daniel Craig, was photographed...
