Paul Walker The Hours
Despite Paul Walker's death over the weekend, producers from his latest film "Hours" have decided to move forward with the release as planned.

J. Edgar
Director Clint Eastwood delves into the personal life of J. Edgar Hoover with the biopic "J. Edgar," starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the controversial FBI director.

Leo has been nominated for three Oscars for his roles in "Blood Diamond" (2007), "The Aviator" (2005) and "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" (1994).

Milk
Sean Penn's Oscar-winning movie Milk has been voted the best gay film of the last decade.

Officials at U.K. charity Stonewall, who conducted the survey, commended director Gus Van Sant's drama for its realistic portrayal of the homosexual community.

Milk's gay activist friend Cleve Jones, portrayed in the movie by Emile Hirsch, says, "This is a fantastic achievement for Milk. As someone wh...

The Edge Of Love
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has a long history of awarding actors who portray real people.

Lesser recognized is the Academy's favor for actors who play literary figures or exist in their spheres. It's quite possible the stars of the recently released The Edge of Love, the st...

Spotlight On Australian Entertainers

July 21st, 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. ...

Are There Any Bankable Actresses in Hollywood?

March 11th, 2008 2:30pm EDT
Halle Berry in Things We Lost In The Fire
Not too long ago Warner Bros. president of production, Jeff Robinov, stated, "We are no longer doing movies with women in the lead." Apparently, Robinov won't even look at a script with a female lead. Is this man spewing forth misogynistic quackery, or is he, as a businessman, simply stating the obvious - that women no longer come with built-in audiences, opening weekend numbers, and box office success?

Ticking off the names of guaranteed male money makers is easy: Will Smith, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, Tom Cruise, Bruce Willis, Jim Carrey, and even behind-the-camera ...
