Bill Murray Regrets 'Garfield'

July 19th, 2010 2:22pm EDT
Bill Murray
Funnyman Bill Murray regrets lending his voice to animated film Garfield to work with his idol, comedy writer Joel Coen - because he realized too late the part was written by a different Joel Cohen.

The actor admits he jumped at the chance to play the fat cat in the 2004 live-action film, loosely based on the Jim Davis comic strip Garfield - when he thought one half of the Oscar-winning Coen brothers filmmaking duo was attached to the script. However, he didn't realize until it was too late that another writer with a similar name had actually worked on the screenplay - and it wasn't funny...

Jonah Hex won't be out until Summer 2010, but Comic Con fans got a peak at the intensity he is bringing to their western comic book character. The world has been warming up to the Brolin method in films like No Country For Old Men, W and Milk. Now he's going to bring it to a kick ass bounty hunter in the old west.

"In the comic book he's this alcoholic curmudgeony kind of guy," Brolin said. "You know he's a bounty hunter, kind of goes from place to place just trying to get trough the day. Not in the comic book, but from my perspective he's loosely based on this guy Col. Seaver, who exist...

Is 40 Dangerous Territory For Men In Hollywood?

October 15th, 2008 12:25pm EDT
George Clooney
There's a saying in Hollywood that goes, when a woman turns 40 her career is over, when a man turns 40 it's just beginning. Sex appeal seems to be the driving force in most stars careers and the perception of most men is that they get sexier with age. Thanks to plastic surgery and changing attitudes women have a fighting chance of keeping their share of the sexy spotlight. But what about the men of Hollywood?

In a not-so-popular film called "I'll Do Anything" Nick Nolte plays an out of work actor who's sleeping with a casting director and lands an audition for a show she's working on. ...

'Burn After Reading' Is Entertaining But Not Oscar Worthy

September 15th, 2008 10:05am EDT

The biggest challenge for an Oscar winner, be it a writer, actor, or director, is the first project following the ultimate Hollywood triumph. Expectations are so high and buzz is so great, it can create an almost impossible set of standards to live up to.

This is the case with the Coen brothers' latest release, "Burn After Reading." Though an entertaining enough way to kill two hours on a Saturday afternoon, you can be sure this will not be the film to earn the duo their next little gold man.

The story is of a former CIA agent's (John Malkovich) "top secret files" that fall in...

Just look back at some of the brothers' most memorable characters: The Snoat brothers in Raising Arizona, Bernie Bernbaum and Eddie Dane in Miller's Crossing, Lou Breeze in Barton Fink, Norville Barnes in The Hudsucker Proxy, the Swedish-Americans Marge Gunderson and Jerome Lundegaard in Fargo, Jackie Treehorn and Jesus Q...

Hit-or-Miss Mastermind Woody Allen Recaptures Genius With Eccentric 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona'

(HollywoodChicago.com) – While legendary writer and director Woody Allen can’t always be equated with sheer genius these days and is more accurately described as a hit-or-miss proposition, the sorely undermarketed and film-festival touring “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” serves as unquestionable retribution for his recently questionable work.

The film, which stars Hollywood sensations Javier Bardem, Scarlett Johansson and Penélope Cruz, all throughout makes you feel like Allen’s script has something brilliant up its artistic sleeve. While at times you’ll easily predict when sex is on deck, ...
