Thoughts On The 56th Annual Grammy Nominations

12/9/2013 8:50pm EST
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
The Grammys are like a musician’s Super Bowl, even if the nominations and victorious artists are flawed.  I won’t lie to you, I complain every year that someone won a Grammy that didn’t deserve it while someone else was snubbed. Just last year, during the 55th Annual Grammys, I lobbied hard for Frank Ocean (looking back, I have reservations now) while Mumford & Sons walked out with the Album of the Year trophy.  The year that Taylor Swift won for Fearless, my girl Beyoncé was on a roll until the coveted Album of the Year award was read.  You get my position though! This year,  I find myself...

Anthony Hopkins In Talks To Join 'Red 2'

Anthony Hopkins
Anthony Hopkins is in negotiations to go bad again as the villain in an all-star sequel to hit action movie Red.

The 2010 release featured Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren as former special operations agents forced to come out of retirement for one last job.

Studio executives at Summit Entertainment are preparing to begin production on a follow-up to the film and they're hoping to add The Silence of the Lambs star to the line-up. If he accepts, Hopkins will play a villainous scientist locked up in a mental asylum.

Nevertheless, Hopkins will only be able to...

Helen Mirren showed up to the London premiere of "Arthur" in a leopard print dress. She looks mighty fine for a 65 year old, don't you think?

The actress turned up the heat on "Saturday Night Live" last weekend when she locked lips with a Marilyn Monroe impersonator for a passionate same-sex smooch. The episode celebrated the actress' busty figure in a series of risqué sketches.

She has starred in several films recently, including "The Tempest," "Red" and "Love Ranch."

1/20/2011 8:56am EST
Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren's action comedy "Red" is set to take aim at the box office once more - studio executives have begun work on a sequel.

The big-screen adaption of the DC comics starred Willis and Mirren alongside John Malkovich and Morgan Freeman as retired spies.

It has grossed $164 million to date worldwide since its release in October and even landed a Golden Globe nomination for Best Picture - Musical or Comedy at this year's ceremony.

And now bosses at Summit Entertainment have invited writers Erich and Jon Hoeber back to write a follow-up, according to

12/15/2010 9:41am EST
Golden Globe
As reported earlier, the Golden Globe nomination list is out. Among films, ‘The King’s Speech’ leads with seven nods, closely followed by ‘The Social Network’ and ‘The Fighter’ with six apiece. ‘Inception’ and ‘Black Swan’ made strong showings as well among dramas. On the comedy side, ‘The Kids Are All Right’ – which needed a pre-Oscar boost to stay a contender – landed nominations for Annette Bening and Julianne Moore (although, strangely, not Mark Ruffalo) and for Best Comedy – where it’s a surefire winner, unless you can see some brainless foreign journalist voting for ‘RED,’ ‘Alice i...

Helen Mirren Thought She Was Too 'Raunchy' For Dame Title

Helen Mirren
Helen Mirren is still shocked she was made a Dame - because the actress thought she was too "raunchy" to be honored by the Queen.

The Oscar-winning star was included in British monarch Queen Elizabeth II's honors list in 2003.

And Mirren was astounded by the high profile accolade because she was convinced her saucy roles in movies including "Hussy" and "The Cook and His Wife & Her Lover" had ruined her reputation.

She tells Britain's Sunday Mirror, "I was very surprised because I thought I was not that sort. I was always a bit raunchy, so I thought, 'I'll never be a Dame, I'm not the rig...

Mary-Louise Parker walked the red carpet at the U.K. premiere of "Red' wearing a short black dress with patterned stockings. We think the "Weeds" star looks pretty hot. What do you think?

A group of former government assassins fights back against the CIA after they're targeted for knowing too much in "Red," an adaptation of Warren Ellis' acclaimed DC Comics graphic novels.

Mary-Louise and Helen Mirren feared they'd be fired from the action comedy once director Robert Schwentke saw them running.

The two thespians were tested to the full when it came to giving chase in the new film - becau...

Review: Age Comes Before Beauty in 'Red'

10/15/2010 11:35am EDT
The graphic novel-turned-film “Red,” about a group of retired assassins forced back into action draws to mind the idiom “age before beauty.” This saying for those unfamiliar, asserts that younger people should pay deference to their elders, because of their more extensive experience. It’s their knowledge and ability to think ahead that allows the old timers in “Red” to kick ass, and the chemistry of a fantastic cast that makes the movie so entertaining.

“Red” does not rely on experimental visual style despite being a graphic novel adaptation, nor does it overwhelm you with epic explosio...

Ernest Borgnine Does WHAT To Stay Active?

Ernest Borgnine
Hollywood old-timer Ernest Borgnine is so tired of people asking him how he stays fit at 93 he has started telling them he masturbates twice daily.

The "Marty" star admits his response has got him into trouble a couple of times - especially when he's live on conservative TV talk shows.

Borgnine, who is back on the big screen in new movie "Red," tells WENN, "I answered that question one time on Fox News. This fella kept bothering me all morning: 'What do you do to keep yourself so worked up?' Finally, I got sick and got tired and I forgot that I was miked. I reached over and replied, 'I ma...

Mary and Helen Mirren feared they'd be fired from the new action comedy once director Robert Schwentke saw them running. The two thespians were tested to the full when it came to giving chase in the new film - because no matter how hard they tried they struggled to look convincing.

Bruce Willis: 'Fear Is My Favorite Part Of Making Movies'

10/12/2010 11:45am EDT
There was a funny action movie many years ago where a heroic sidekick, nearing retirement age, would say, “I’m too old for this shit.” They made four of those movies and he never got too old for that shit. In his new movie Red, Bruce Willis plays a CIA agent who actually was retired, until he has to spring back into action.

“The word is certainly used and used in the title of the film: Retired Extremely Dangerous,” Willis said. “It’s commented on a couple of times, but when you see the film it’s right now. It’s hip. Karl [Urban] and I went at it in one of the toughest fights I’ve ever foug...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Jackass 3-D,' 'Conviction,' & More

10/12/2010 10:41am EDT
Robert De Niro and Edward Norton’s latest collaboration “Stone” turned out to be a serious disappointment. While both of the actors turn in decent performances in their respective roles, the film’s writing and directing are seriously lacking. “Stone” dabbles in several concepts such as morality, spirituality, and loyalty; however it does not pay enough attention to any of them to make a cohesive story.

Norton plays Stone, a convict seeking parole, who employs his attractive wife (Milla Jovovich) to seduce his parole officer (De Niro). Over the course of the film it’s never quite clear S...

Mary Louise Parker & Helen Mirren Worried About Running For 'Red'

Mary Louise Parker
Actresses Mary Louise Parker and Helen Mirren feared they'd be sacked from new action comedy "Red" once director Robert Schwentke saw them running.

The two thespians were tested to the full when it came to giving chase in the new film - because no matter how hard they tried they struggled to look convincing.

Parker explains, "Helen and I both said that we thought as soon as they saw us run that we'd both be fired. It takes a certain kind of commitment to run and look like there's a lot of drama happening around you and then to fall.

"I don't mind being pulled to the ground if something w...

Helen Mirren considered breaking her own leg in a desperate effort to get out of her first full-frontal nude film scene.

The Oscar winner admits she was a mess the morning of her big reveal in Ken Russell's 1972 film "The Savage Messiah" and thought about harming herself to force the director to rethink the scene.

She tells WENN, "I played a bra-burning suffragette in the turn of the century. It's Ken Russell so it was pretty well out there.

"The day I had to do that nude scene, where I had to walk completely bollock naked down a flight of stairs, was awful. It was early days and I was s...

Bruce Willis is in two films presenting footage to the fans at San Diego Comic-Con this year. He stars in Red, based on a comic book. He also appears in The Expendables, Sylvester Stallone’s homage to all the great action stars.

“I’m still a fan of films,” Willis told the press. “I still go to movies all the time. I like to see what’s out there. I don't know about you guys but I never think there’s any competition between films. I hear it said but I root for everybody’s film. I especially have a fond place in my heart for graphic novels, for comics. What’s really cool to me about coming he...

Helen Mirren 'Ravished' By Comic-Con Fans, Pays Tribute To Harvey Pekar

Helen Mirren
San Diego Comic Con attracts the biggest stars, especially when they appear in movies based on comic book characters. One star the fans in the convention’s Hall H probably never expected to see was Helen Mirren. The star of The Queen lost her Comic-Con virginity when she appeared on a panel for her upcoming film, Red.

“I was just ravished,” Mirren joked with the press afterwards. “I’ve had foreplay beforehand and now I got ravished.”

Dame Helen is used to a lot of fanfare for her work, but a room full of 7000 moviegoers was a new thrill to her. “That’s obviously what it’s all about isn’t ...
