Appearing on U.S. chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday (11Feb14), he explains, "They were only five years old but the ref kept blowing the whistle for all these little infringements... (I was like), 'Come on ref, they're five!' He went to the coach and he said, 'That father the...

The Fighter actress met up with the Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy star for a meal during the 2012 Toronto Film Festival in Canada, but midway through their dinner date, Adams lost her cool and gushed about her eating companion.

She tells Britain's The Times, "I just went, 'Oh my gosh, I can't believe I'm sitting here with you. You're so amazing!' I can't play it cool. I have no game."

Actor Gary Oldman is stepping behind the camera to direct an upcoming Jack White concert.

The Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy star was approached to take control of White's New York show, which will stream live on the internet on April 27th- and he jumped at the opportunity.

Oldman tells the New York Times, "It just fell from the sky. Occasionally you get calls and they just drop in. I didn't have to think very quickly about it. I just said, 'Yeah, that sounds very good.'"

However, the actor admits he's having trouble communicating with White, who is not a fan of modern technology.

Gary Oldman Says His 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' Character Is A Better Spy Than James Bond

February 5th, 2012 10:30am EST
Gary Oldman
Gary Oldman has urged the producers of the James Bond films to study his spy thriller Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy - because he thinks 007 should be a better undercover man.

The Oscar-nominated star, who plays veteran spy George Smiley in the film, admits he has always been puzzled by Ian Fleming's flamboyant hero.

Oldman explains, "He's (Smiley) the polar opposite of Bond. He is the man in the mac who you would pass in the street and not look at twice, whereas Bond, it's always struck me, announces who he is everywhere he goes - to the villain, to the guy that wants to kill him.

The Oscar-nominated "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" star appeared seated on a darkened stage as he read the overview of an earlier screened episode of the trashy reality TV series.

He began, "The roommates take Vinny to a party at Karma for his first night back. While dancing in the club, Snooki accidentally pees on herself... The next day Snooki wears two sets of underwear to dinner as a precaution."

Colin Firth Believes Gary Oldman Is Hung Like 'A Water Buffalo'?

January 19th, 2012 10:14am EST
Colin Firth
Colin Firth is still desperate to know if his Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy co-star Gary Oldman is really well hung after his fellow Brit appeared to boast a large manhood in the Spandex outfit he wore for A Christmas Carol.

Oldman played Bob Cratchit, Jacob Marley and Tiny Tim in the motion capture film, opposite Oscar winner Firth - who portrayed Fred, and both stars had to wear specially-made, unflattering black rubber suits so animators could transfer their facial expressions and actions onto the screen.

Nevertheless, while Firth tried to pad his "manhood-cancelling" Spandex bodysuit so...

Best of 2011 - Jason Coleman's Top Ten Films

December 30th, 2011 3:20pm EST
The Skin I Live In Photo
2011’s crop of movies had its fare share of interesting ups and downs. On the down side, it’s a year of movies with a ton of potential that for, one reason or another, ended up disappointing due to various bad elements. There were actor/director re-teaming’s brought down by bad casting (Jessica Chastain, terrific in "The Help," proved totally out of place in the Michael Shannon/Jeff Nichols flick "Take Shelter") and annoying characters (wish they could just excise Carey Mulligan’s annoying sister from the Steve McQueen/Michael Fassbender flick "Shame" – and leave the rest!), not to mentio...

Gary Oldman Says More George Smiley Films Are In The Works

December 8th, 2011 9:23am EST
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
One of the major literary franchises that has yet to become a movie blockbuster is John le Carre’s George Smiley series. That is about to change. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy opens in America this week, after a successful run in England earlier this year. Gary Oldman plays MI6 espionage expert George Smiley, and he says they’re already planning to film more books.

“I think they're seriously now talking about it,” Oldman said. “Smiley's People with probably a slight cross pollination of Honorable Schoolboy, but I think it would be Smiley's People.”

Review: 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' Slow, Drawn-Out And Distinctively Drab

December 6th, 2011 4:00pm EST
Tinker photo
I’m all for films that take their time. There’s nothing quite like the bravery of a picture that dares to engage by fleshing out those quiet moments and infusing character insights that longingly linger. In his previous film "Let The Right One In," Swedish filmmaker Tomas Alfredson wielded this delicate bravado like a master swordsman, bringing his slow and methodic style to the done-to-death tale of vampires to illicit freshness. Problem is that in his latest outing "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" the long book and material upon which the film is based and the unrushed pacing of Alfredso...
