Paul Giamatti
Actor Paul Giamatti's favorite movie experience was on the set of a little-known British film about a kid who couldn't stop farting. The Oscar nominated star of Sideways has gone on to become one of Hollywood's most respected actors, but he fears his best work came on 2002 film Thunderpants, which featured Ned Beatty, Stephen Fry and Harry Potter star Rupert Grint.

Giamatti says, "Thunderpants is a fine motion picture that I made in England a long time ago about a kid who farts uncontrollably. This came across my desk and I had to be a part of it... I play a guy from NASA who kidnaps h...

TV On DVD Recommendation: 'Homicide: Life On The Street'

March 7th, 2008 3:19pm EST
Homicide: Life On The Street
"Homicide: Life on the Street" is one of the least-watched long-running police dramas that ever aired. It is superior in every way to its contemporaries "Law & Order" and "NYPD Blue" and the modern "CSI". Picking up the mantle of realism left bare by the departure of "Hill Street Blues", "Homicide" detailed the everyday happenings in Baltimore's Homicide Division.

It was shot mainly using hand-held cameras in a style that would become the norm for gritty realistic crime dramas on both the big and small screen. The series' true ensemble cast prominently featured the excellent Andre...

Hollywood star Burt Reynolds has confessed the infamous scene in Deliverance in which co-star Ned Beatty is raped by a hillbilly was excessively graphic.

The veteran actor has revealed how the brutal scene could have delved further into explicit detail had he not stopped the filming, according to New York gossip column PageSix.

He says, "All that 'squeal, piggy, piggy' was not in the script. Two camera operators looked away during the scene because it was getting so hairy. Finally, it went too far and I ran into the shot. I asked John Boorman, the director, 'Why did you let it go...

Most Memorable Irish Films

March 17th, 2007 1:00pm EDT
Circle of Friends
As the sun rises on another St Patrick's Day, it's time to honor the Emerald Isle and all things Irish by looking back at the classic movies of Ireland.

From leprechauns and colourful characters to political dramas and violence, Hollywood has had a long and varied history with Ireland.

And countrymen like Peter O'Toole, Daniel Day-Lewis, Pierce Brosnan and Liam Neeson have become household movie names around the globe. Even second-generation Irish stars, like Spencer Tracy and James Cagney, have celebrated their roots, co-founding the Irish Mafia in Tinseltown in the 1930s.
