Gamer, which also stars Gerard Butler, Amber Valletta, John Leguizamo and Kyra Sedgwick, is set in the future where video games and high tech entertainment have taken high priority in the world.

Michael C. Hall may be fairly new to the movie scene, but he is one of the most talented actors in the business. B...

Top 10 Acting Performances By Athletes

August 27th, 2009 10:35am EDT
Cam Neely as Seabass
A director getting the optimum performance out of an actor is not unlike a coach getting a great performance out of an athlete. One has to use the right guy in the right scene with expert timing. These are situations where one could film countless scenes of all different kinds, and getting laughs so big with these athletes would seem impossible - they're almost perfect. Remember, the fellas on this list appear here because they got the biggest laughs, not because they were the best actors or in the best movies. While Something About Mary is a funnier and better movie than many on this l...

Emmy Nomination Surprises, Snubs And Shouldn't Be Nominated

How I Met Your Mother
To paraphrase Ned Flanders, apparently an Emmy nomination is easier to get than an acceptance letter from Arizona State.

This morning, Emmy tried to one-up Oscar's new rule of ten by including six nominees in the acting categories and a whopping seven in the series categories. Yes, if you made a television series this year, or appeared on one, chances are you heard your name called in North Hollywood this morning.

With so many nominess, it seems impossible that any deserving performances or series were left out. Right? Sadly, no. And, of course, there are plenty of nominees who sh...

'The Closer' Recap: 'Half Load'

July 7th, 2009 10:15am EDT
The Closer
The Closer opens with Fritz and Brenda driving to give away Kitty's toys. Gabriel calls her with a new crime scene and Fritz drives her. The murder took place at a community center, and the first person to find the body is Father Jack. Reggie Gray, the victim, had no known enemies- according to the Father. Realizing that this would take awhile, Fritz leaves Brenda at the scene and goes off to take care of Kitty's worldly goods. Brenda and the team try to allow the Father to let them search Reggie's room. As the team disperses with assignments, Sanchez takes Brenda up to the top of a c...

'The Closer' Recap: 'Walking Back the Cat'

June 30th, 2009 4:46pm EDT
The Closer
For those sci-fi geeks out there, watch for David Hewlett in this episode! Now on with the show. The opening for this episode is strikingly without crime- Brenda is laying dinner out as Fritz walks in. Fritz walks in, unfortunately holding Kitty's ashes. Brenda, of course, breaks down with this dead body unlike her many others. They finally sit down to a now cold dinner, the credits still rolling, and Fritz slyly tries to get Brenda's help on a case. The music cues on this show are dead on and highlight the well timed cast. The next day, she is talking Pope into taking the case while ...

'The Closer' Recap: 'Red Tape'

June 23rd, 2009 9:45am EDT
The Closer
Opens as every cop drama should- in a bar. Gabriel is meeting Taylor, having asked him for information on Irene. The subtlety of the personal threads throughout seasons is quite special in this show and it is well appreciated, as it is more realistic than purely episodic shows. Back to the bar, and their conversation is cut short with a shooting outside the bar. Gabriel runs out and shoots into the street, shooting a guy he thinks was firing shots at him. As the crime scene is established, Captain Raydor moves in with intent. Mary McDonnell, well known for her role as Laura Roslin on ...

'The Closer' Recap: 'Blood Money'

The Closer
The Closer opens on a surveillance camera set in LAX. As the credits cut in, Chief Pope is briefing the crew on a case involving a real estate agent Mr. Summers, who is now missing. We find, via the wife's trip to the bank, that he is being held hostage and for a large ransom, over a million dollars and it led to the loan of Detective Mikki Mendoza to PHD; she does not make a great first impression on Brenda, as she mistakenly interrupts her. Also, Kitty, Brenda's cat, is joining the crew for the day (for those who missed the previous episode, Kitty is pretty much on her last leg). Mi...

Movie Remakes & Recastings We Hope To Never See

June 8th, 2009 9:40am EDT
Mary Poppins
In the wake of the current brain-draining drive to remake just about everything Hollywood has ever had to offer, there are some films that are so sacred they should never be touched. This is a blatant retort to the deluge of watered down franchises, remakes, medium changes, etc. It ranges in levels of snark from low to apocalyptic strength.

My frustration with this extremely long trend came to a fever pitch after watching the Obsessed trailer. Anyone even peripherally familiar with Fatal Attraction could easily catch the obvious, racially spurred recasting of a classic film.

TV's Most Kick-Ass Female Detectives

Cagney and Lacey
Once upon a television season, fans of police dramas and crime procedurals didn't think detectives could ever get more hard-boiled than Vic Mackey of "The Shield" or Andy Sipowicz of "NYPD Blue." Thankfully, we were wrong. Not only are there an increasing number of take-no-prisoners police detectives and home-sleuths on the case, but many of them are wearing skirts. From Poppy Montgomery, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Roselyn Sanchez in "Without A Trace" to Kathryn Morris in "Cold Case," "Law and Order's" S. Epatha Merkerson and the women of the CSI franchise, powerful, well-written female pro...

Hollywood Stars: 'Please - Just Don't Vote'

Leonardo DiCaprio
NEW YORK (AP) - How do you get kids to vote? Just say no. Leonardo DiCaprio, Halle Berry, Jennifer Aniston, Tobey Maguire, Eva Longoria Parker and other stars are using reverse psychology to get young people into voting booths on Election Day.

In a new public service announcement that hit YouTube and other online outlets Wednesday, DiCaprio says: "Please - just don't vote." Others echo his plea: "Don't vote." But the stars soon twist the message: Voting is a civic duty and the only way to effect change.

Who Will & Who Should Win An Emmy

Ah, the Emmys, the most entertaining awards show and often the most frustrating. Why is it so frustrating? Because the voters get it wrong. They get the winners wrong more often than casual sports bettors. In fact, they get it so wrong that predicting the winners is often a fool's errand since it's impossible to determine what will strike the Academy's fancy as the reasons for their choices are as mystifying as the results.

Luckily, Starpulse.com has one such fool. So it's time for a round of everybody's favorite game: Who Will Win and Who Should Win?

Workplace Romance: Costars Who Fell In Love

August 19th, 2008 12:08pm EDT
Mr. and Mrs. Smith
It is widely acknowledged that workplace romances are a definite no-no; clearly, some famous actors and actresses didn't get the memo. From classic romantic duos Bogey/Bacall and Spencer/Tracy to contemporary pairings like "Bennifer" and "Brangelina", since the inception of cinema, thespians have taken on-set relationships from reel-life to real-life.

Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland's hearts skipped a beat while filming Flatliners (1990). Tom Cruise admired a young Aussie actress named Nicole Kidman and had her cast opposite him in Days of Thunder. The movie Seven ended with Gwynet...

To the everyday person, it seems like having a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is completely unattainable. Yet it may not be that hard to achieve even if you have a minimal amount of fame.

According to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, there is a process one must go through to get a star on the Walk of Fame. There are five categories of stars: motion pictures, television, radio, recording and live theatre. A person must be nominated to one of these categories by an organization, agree to attend the presentation ceremony within five years of selection and pay a $25,000 fee. If you ...

Last week, I helped the Emmy panelists decide upon which series to cast their vote for, and now it's the actors' turn.

The Emmy blue ribbon panel received a group of lists from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences last week. These were top ten lists from which they were to select the five nominees for the big Emmy show. They will view select episodes from each nominee and base their decision on what they see.

It's nigh on impossible to glean an accurate impression from a small sample, especially when it comes to acting. Many characters are given complex arcs from which the...
