Stephen Baldwin
Movie star Stephen Baldwin has turned documentarian to chronicle the oil spill clean-up in the Gulf of Mexico.

The actor was in New Orleans, Louisiana to discuss an upcoming film project at the beginning of the month, when a massive oil leak from the exploded Deepwater Horizon Rig near the Gulf Coast hit the headlines and became the major talking point throughout the state.

Baldwin immediately changed tact and began working on a film about the environmental disaster and its potential impact on New Orleans and the state of Louisiana.

He's now the brains behind new documentary "The Will To...

field of dreams
Fans of Kevin Costner's iconic baseball film Field of Dreams now have a chance to own a piece of movie history - the baseball field where it was filmed has been put up for sale.

The Iowa land has been in Don Lansing's family for more than a century, and his family has helped to maintain the baseball diamond in a cornfield built by Universal Studios for the 1989 movie.

The field has become a popular tourist destination ever since and an estimated 65,000 people visit the field each year; but now Lansing has decided to give the land up. According to the Des Moines Register, the asking price...

Kevin Costner
Movie star Kevin Costner is heading to Louisiana this week to help clean-up efforts as the state's coastline is threatened by an oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico.

Local businesses and wildlife are in jeopardy after a BP rig collapsed and sent a massive spillage drifting towards the state's shores. Costner will jet into Louisiana on Thursday with his scientist brother Dan to demonstrate a new water-oil separation device.

The brothers set up Costner Industries Nevada Corporation (CINC), and have previously promoted a filtration system, designed by Dan Costner, to recycle oil. The actor wil...

Russell Crowe Hated Kevin Costner's 'Robin Hood'

5/10/2010 5:30pm EDT
Russell Crowe
Russell Crowe watched previous adaptations of the Robin Hood story to inspire his latest big screen outing - and hated Kevin Costner's turn as the folk hero.

The Gladiator star plays the legendary character in Ridley Scott's upcoming blockbuster and he studied other incarnations of the role to help shape his portrayal of the action man. And he admits Costner's 1991 film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves wasn't one he liked.

He says, "I watched the Richard Greene TV series when I was a kid. When you see the episodes now, they're a bit creaky, and it's basically the same story every week. I s...

Kelsey Grammer Ends Lawsuit With $10 Pay-Out

Kelsey Grammer
Kelsey Grammer has ended a lawsuit over 2008 flop "Swing Vote" - by paying a $10 settlement to a man who alleged the film was similar to a plot he wrote years earlier.

Grammer was named as a defendant in a suit filed by Bradley Blakeman in August 2008 but was the last party left fighting the case after a judge dismissed claims against co-star Kevin Costner and the Disney executives who owned the rights.

The incensed screenwriter claimed he had given a copy of his script Go November to Grammer himself in 2006 and was stunned to see the actor starring in the "extraordinarily similar" Swin...

A Decade Of Doom, Gloom, & Apocalypse Is Ahead For Us!

1/17/2010 10:00am EST
Like it or not, we are living in the future--even if it isn't the one we thought it would be. Leading up to the turn of the century, most science fiction stories taking place the first decade of the 21st century

depicted it as an era of elegant space travel and scientific whimsy. Images imbibed in us by the potential wonders that science and invention could offer. However, the stories that take place in the coming decade are a different matter altogether. If the 00's were to be a time of discovery, the next decade, it seems, is when we go and blow it all up (you maniacs!). If you judge w...

Gary Cooper
With the baseball playoffs in full swing, it's time to take a look at actors who have stepped up to the plate and taken on the challenge of portraying a real-life hardball legend. While there have been many great movies and portrayals about diamond life (Kevin Costner in "Bull Durham" springs to mind), a select few actors have hit the field in fact-based baseball films.

In the revered biopic "The Pride of the Yankees," Cooper steps into the shoes of the Yankees icon and deftly handles all the off-the-field developments (diagnosis of ALS, "Luckiest Man Alive"...

Best & Worst Of Ashton Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher
Ashton Kutcher is one of those actors that the general public loves to hate yet secretly loves. He is a leading man with striking looks who has made numerous successful films; he has more than 1 million followers on Twitter; he is married to Demi Moore and he comes across as being a genuinely nice human being. Yet the phrase, "Want to see the new Ashton Kutcher movie with me?" tends to make people want to expunge their last meal.

As with any performer, not everything that Kutcher does is a gem of a move. The collective work of Kutcher isn't exactly Oscar worthy, but most of what he do...

So, have you seen this year's comedy about an overweight, overzealous, loser-y mall cop who takes his job way too seriously and is hopelessly in love with a fellow shopping center employee? If you're not sure whether I'm referring to January's hit Paul Blart: Mall Cop or the newest Seth Rogen comedy Observe and Report (in theaters now), don't be too hard on yourself: Both flicks have eerily similar plotlines. This isn't the first time two films with the same subject matter have been released within a year of one another; Hollywood has a talent for redundancy (see: recycling and ripping off)...

Career changes like these are made especially possible in today's celebrity world thanks to contraptions like auto-tune, which has lead to the replacement of talen...

Universal Republic/Universal Records South will release the debut album from Kevin Costner & Modern West, titled Untold Truths, on November 11. Though best known for his acting career, Costner is no stranger to the art of making music and songwriting.

However, he and some of the band membe...

Race Matters: Is Hollywood Truly Color Blind When It Comes To On-Screen Romance?

9/29/2008 9:49am EDT
Die Another Day
In John Grisham's bestselling novel "The Pelican Brief," investigative journalist Gray Grantham and law student Darby Shaw uncover a political conspiracy and in the process, end up between the sheets. In the 1993 film version, Darby Shaw (played by Julia Roberts) and Grantham merely share a chaste hug in the film's conclusion. What happened between page and screen? One theory: In the novel Grantham is white; in the film, he's portrayed by Academy-Award winning - and black - actor Denzel Washington.

The stigma of interracial relationships in cinema can be traced back to the 1934 Motio...

It's no secret that one of America's favorite days of the year is opening day (in turn, we are not a fan of the Japan trips that do not allow all teams to open on the same day). With all the controversies that exist in baseball today (steroids, HGH, the designated hitter) it is nice to look to the movies and find an innocence that we all may be losing a grip on. In the spirit of that innocence, we present the top five greatest baseball moments on film:
