Jason Schwartzman
Actor Jason Schwartzman is set to become a first-time dad - his wife is expecting a baby this December.

The "Rushmore" star wed designer Brady Cunningham in July 2009 and the couple will welcome the bundle of joy in time for Christmas.

Schwartzman broke the news during an interview on late night talk show "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Wednesday after the presenter quizzed him about his new facial hair.

He told host Jimmy Kimmel, "I'm expecting a child in December.

"I decided to grow out this moustache, so when we take photos, my boy or girl, whatever it is, they will be embarrassed. So I am n...

Heather Burns
Bored to Death is a promising new HBO comedy that stars an excellent cast of comedic players in the form of Jason Schwartzman (The Darjeeling Limited, Rushmore), Ted Danson (Cheers), Zach Galifianakis (Hangover) and Heather Burns (Two Weeks Notice, Miss Congeniality). We recently had the pleasure of talking with the main players, Heather Burns, and here's what she had to say about Bored to Death.

Eric Stromsvold: Based off of the trailers it appears as though you're playing a character named Leah, who is Ray's girlfriend. What else is going on there?

Heather Burns: Well, she's Ray's...

Coming-Of-Age Films That We All Remember

July 8th, 2009 1:00pm EDT
SuperBad
Making the transition from adolescence into adulthood is a critical phase in an individual's life. This coming-of-age period, which has been coined "emerging adulthood" by Clark University research professor, Dr. Jeffrey Arnett, is characterized by identity exploration, self-focus, instability, a belief in boundless possibilities, and feeling in-between. According to Arnett's theory, in industrialized societies the types of experiences that people have who are in their late teens to mid-20's have changed dramatically over the past 50 years. Instead of being quick to make that walk down the ...

Owen Wilson's Best & Worst Films

October 21st, 2008 9:21am EDT
Owen Wilson
The Frat Pack has been a powerful force in the new Millennium, and for awhile it was like we could not see a comedy without Ben Stiller, Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn, Luke Wilson, and Owen Wilson. These comedic geniuses are quirky, timely, and have a lasting power that will keep them in movies for years to come. The goofy, charming Owen Wilson has proven himself not only as an actor, but as an Oscar-nominated screenwriter. There's a lot more going on beneath those blonde surfer bangs than one might expect, and with "Marley & Me" coming out this Christmas, let's take a look at some of the fine...

Our Favorite High School Movies

September 18th, 2008 10:00am EDT
The Breakfast Club
Perhaps you've heard about "Assassination of a High School President," the Bruce Willis/Mischa Barton movie that darkly satirizes high school politics. While much of the high school set is eagerly anticipating the film's theatrical release in early 2009, early reviews from its January screening at Sundance have been mixed. MTV has praised it as a cross between "Rushmore" and "The Usual Suspects," while Variety labeled it an "uninventive," "muddled parody." Only time will tell if the movie becomes an instant classic or ends up in the bargain DVD bin next to "Encino Man."

There has been...

Spotlight On Bill Murray's Best Films

August 22nd, 2008 9:02am EDT
Bill Murray
It's been a rough last few months for one of our favorites, Bill Murray. We will forgo rehashing Murray's legal and marital problems and instead take a look back at the greatest movies in his career where Murray plays the lead (sorry "Caddyshack" fans!).

It has been quite some time since we saw Bill on the silver screen-not counting a blink-and-you-miss-him cameo in this summer's "Get Smart." Though, there is already positive buzz on next year's "The Limits of Control".

Also, in case you missed it, here is video from a few days ago when jumped out of a plane to open the 50th ann...

Movies With Heart: The 100 Best 'Romdramedies' Of The Past 20 Years

April 17th, 2008 8:00am EDT
Clueless
There's the quintessential romantic comedy, and then there's the romdramedy. Similar to a dramedy (in which there is an equal balance of humor and serious content), a romdramedy combines comedy and drama with that mushy thing we call romance.

This is not a list of the best films over the past 20 years. Rather it is a list that gives preferences to those films that best combine all three elements - romance, comedy and drama.

Films like Magnolia and The Matrix were barred from competition, while films like Down with Love were considered (however, that one didn't make the cut)....

Owen Wilson, 'The Darjeeling Limited,' & Wes Anderson's Monster

October 26th, 2007 12:21pm EDT
The Darjeeling Limited
On the night The Darjeeling Limited opens, Owen Wilson's suicide attempt makes him a Tenenbaum for life (Aquatic).

There is a place in every human psyche reserved for the dark, brooding thoughts associated with death. There is even a sleeping monster that may ponder what holding a dead man would be like, or what people would say at one's funeral, or what sort of effort it takes to kill oneself? For most this dark spot of the brain remains largely inactive, awaking in nightmares and freak daydreams, only to be quickly pushed out of the mind until the next time it is unwillingly rejuven...
