Choke
(HollywoodChicago.com) – Interviewing actor Sam Rockwell is like experiencing him in one of his many excellent characters. He has been Chuck Barris in “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,” “Wild Bill” Wharton in “The Green Mile” and even Guy Fleegman in “Galaxy Quest”. He’s a true performer with a passion that bleeds through in “Choke,” which is his latest film.

Standing and pacing during the Q&A with HollywoodChicago.com, Rockwell made a hilarious theatrical moment out of his frustration while lighting a cigarette. In between all that, he talked about his latest characterization, which i...

Movies With Heart: The 100 Best 'Romdramedies' Of The Past 20 Years

This is not a list of the best films over the past 20 years. Rather it is a list that gives preferences to those films that best combine all three elements - romance, comedy and drama.

Films like Magnolia and The Matrix were barred from competition, while films like Down with Love were considered (however, that one didn't make the cut)....

The Best & Worst Films Starring Drew Barrymore

Some are entranced by the starlet's positive attitude and sunny demeanor. Others see that personality as a perfect compliment to her blonde hair.

Either way, no one can deny that the actress has engaged her audience her entire life - from childhood celebrity to teenage addict to serial bride to nude poser. All the while, and quite amazingly, Barr...

George Clooney is a strange player in the entertainment world. While widely renowned as an A-list movie star with universal sex appeal, Clooney's film career isn't as rife with blockbuster hits as one may think.

He does have the fashionably discredited, and thusly underrated, Ocean's series, but today's Cary Grant has only two films, The Perfect Storm and Batman and Robin, that grossed over $100 million domestically. The majority of his films are what one might call prestige films - vehicles to exhibit his considerable acting and directing talent. This is possibly because his star was...

In the December issue of W magazine, on newsstands November 23, George Clooney says he didn't know what prostitutes were until he cruised around in a Porsche with his cousin, actor Miguel Ferrer, when he first moved to California: "I didn't know what hookers were.
