Q&A: How 'Justified' Star Timothy Olyphant Conquers TV

February 22nd, 2012 1:48pm EST
Justified
If there's one film actor who came into television and blew the doors off the medium, it was Justified star Timothy Olyphant.

In three seasons as quick-witted, quick-drawing Kentucky marshal Raylan Givens, the Live Free or Die Hard actor hasn't given a bad performance. In fact, he hasn't given less than a great one. Whether it's his leveling stare or just the way he points his words, Olyphant carries himself with a natural intensity that makes Raylan the infamous character we've been told he is. Simply put, in someone else's hands, this role just wouldn't work.

Off-screen, he's incredib...

Maggie Q
Billboards promoting actress Maggie Q's new TV show Nikita are causing a controversy across America - because they're too sexy and too fiery.

The bosses of some malls and shopping areas have refused to put up the posters for fear of offending people. The varied billboards feature the scantily clad Live Free or Die Hard star holding a series of killer weapons.

Officials at top Los Angeles shopping center The Grove passed on an image of Q wearing a leather outfit. Malls in Chicago, Illinois and New York also passed on the image, according to Variety. Some outlets have now erected a repla...

Justin Long's Full-Frontal Nude Scene Cut From Film

July 27th, 2010 10:30pm EDT
Justin Long
Actor Justin Long's blushes have been spared by the director of his new movie "Going the Distance" - she has cut a full-frontal shot of the star.

Long's on/off girlfriend Drew Barrymore, who plays his love interest in the quirky romantic comedy, admits the "Live Free or Die Hard" star had to bare his butt in several scenes - and was completely naked in one.

She says, "It's funny because usually it's the girl who's naked. I was like, 'That's right b--ch, the tables are turned.' It was a running joke in the movie.

"It's (nudity) actually been trimmed down - there were more. There was one c...

Stop In The Name Of The Law: The Best Of The Buddy Cop Genre

February 25th, 2010 9:27am EST
Cop Out
Buddy cop movies involve two characters with completely different styles - usually one by the book and a wild one with no fear. They reluctantly team up to stop a crime and become friends in the process. These two characters usually can’t stand one another in the beginning, but as time passes they begin to appreciate the other’s perspective. They blend the excitement of an action movie with the wit of comedies, creating a very entertaining experience.

In honor of the latest film in this genre, this week’s “Cop Out” starring Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan, we're spotlighting some of our fa...

Bruce Willis is making plans to return to the Die Hard franchise, confirming a fifth installment is in the works. The actor kick started his career as a big-screen action man playing New York cop John McClane in the 1988 blockbuster,

He says, "I think we're going to do a Die Hard 5 next year. I would hire Len Wiseman right now (to direct)." Willis has even come up with ideas for ...

Is Kevin Smith Looking For 'Cop Out' Publicity?

Is Kevin Smith Looking For
Kevin Smith was conveniently kicked off of a flight over the weekend, allowing everyone in America to read his name in a paper or on a blog just in time for his new film, "Cop Out," in theaters February 26.

I'm not saying he got kicked off the flight on purpose, but perhaps his subconscious allowed him to put on the few extra pounds it took to get a pilot all riled up. Smith has flown Southwest before and never had a problem. He is currently challenging the airline to prove that he was really a safety risk, which will cost them a $10,000 donation to charity, should they fail. I would get...

Starpulse's Explosive Summer Movie Preview

Star Trek
Since the dawn of the American cinematic blockbuster in the late 1970s and early 1980s, moviegoers have eagerly waited for May - the unofficial beginning of summertime. This summer is no different. Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that. The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Inglourious Basterds, et...

WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) - Will Smith wasn't nominated for an Oscar this year, but his role in I Am Legend has earned a different ''academy'' award - from the cadets at the U.S. Military Academy.

Film Feature: Improbable Survivors

January 28th, 2008 11:12am EST
Live Free Or Die Hard
Movies are entertainment. We're supposed to suspend our disbelief so we can be entertained and so we don't bog ourselves down in the specifics. In some movies we can do just that - believe - and we can go with the flow. Others provide circumstances that are just too preposterous to take at face value.

Following are some of those movies and characters that I couldn't just forget about and found myself picking apart afterwards. I initially enjoyed each and every one of them, but on further viewing, they were just too much to accept.

What '24' Needs For Season Seven To Rock

December 28th, 2007 10:27am EST

For reasons that defy logic, the powers that be from 24 have decided to inform fans of a huge spoiler prior to the new season (see clip below.) Most likely they did this in an effort to bring back the pissed-off fans (and there are many) for the seventh season.

Producers will most likely use this as a focal point of their ad campaign for the new season, which looks like it will start in the fall (we hope), so we have to embrace this idea. It can go either way. The first part of this article does not give any info about the trailer so it is safe to read for those who still want to be k...

Starpulse Holiday Movie Preview, Part 3

With every surplus of holiday cheer comes a few Scrooges. Some can't stand all the mushiness, or perhaps they just want to have something blow up to go along with their eggnog. Maybe they just like to sit on the edge of their seats instead of on Santa's lap. Fair enough.

For those people, there have been a few real holiday film gems over the years. Some are disturbing, such as Santa going on a killing spree. Others are entertaining, like Die Hard's Christmas party gone awry.
