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. ...

After 19 Years, 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' Phenomenally Exhumes Venerated Roots

May 22nd, 2008 11:16am EDT
Indiana Jones
(HollywoodChicago.com) – After such a long respite from the beloved film progression, I was initially just as skittish about seeing Harrison Ford back in the Indy saddle as I was watching Sylvester Stallone back in the ring in “Rocky Balboa” in his 2006 comeback and then again in 2008 in his “Rambo” return.

Ultimately, though, I had faith in director Steven Spielberg not to royally torpedo the monolithically anticipated “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” which resurrects the Chicago-born, 65-year-old Harrison Ford as one of my favorite film characters of all time.

The Cineplexes Are Alive With The Sound Of Music: The Return Of The Movie Musical

May 6th, 2008 8:30am EDT
Hairspray
On April 22's episode of American Idol, renowned composer and lyricist Andrew Lloyd Weber stood patiently trying to teach a blank-eyed Jason Castro the song, "Memory" from one of history's most popular musicals, "Cats." Smiled the clueless Castro, "I didn't even know a cat was singing it."

Quell'horror! Is this the extent of musical theater knowledge possessed by today's generation? In fairness, Castro is from Texas, not exactly around the corner from Broadway. Perhaps had there been a big-screen version of "Cats," more people under the age of 30 would be hip to the magic and majesty...

Liv Tyler Wants To Sing

April 6th, 2008 1:30pm EDT
Liv Tyler
Actress Liv Tyler has longed for years to show off her singing abilities - and even auditioned for the musical movie Moulin Rouge! The Armageddon star, daughter of Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler, was brought up in a musical household - but admits she has always been shy about showcasing her own vocal talent.

And the 30-year-old hoped the 2001 movie would be the perfect opportunity to debut her voice - but lost out on the lead role to Oscar-winner Nicole Kidman.

She says, "I sat on a piano and sang "Big Spender," but I didn't get the role. When I was a little girl, I always wanted t...

Guns Pulled, Actor Fired On Set Of 'The Take'

April 4th, 2008 7:44am EDT
John Leguizamo
The first two days of filming on Rosie Perez and John Leguizamo's new movie The Take was all drama - guns were pulled on caterers, police shut the set down and an eight-year-old actor was fired. The incident-pact shoot began with a thug attacking the set cook after he was refused free food that was set aside for the cast and crew.

Leguizamo says, "We shot in East L.A... and some hood wanted to get craft services, so he got on line and he said, 'Y'all want the chicken, man,' and the caterer said, 'No way.' So he slapped the caterer, the caterer started choking him and then the hood took...

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 ...
