Josh Brolin Brings 'Jonah Hex' Intensity To Comic-Con

Josh Brolin
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...

Richard Dreyfuss Calls Attention To Neglected Battlefields

Richard Dreyfuss
WASHINGTON (AP) — Oscar-winner Richard Dreyfuss visited the nation's capital on Wednesday to call attention to the most endangered Civil War battlefields.

The actor joined the Civil War Preservation Trust as the group released its annual report on 10 battlefields that it says are deteriorating due to neglect, land development and other threats.

At a news conference, Dreyfuss said his interest in preserving Civil War battlefields grew out of his love for history and the significance of the war.

"We are the consequences of that war and the more we know about our past, the bette...

Mega Oscar Diary

Sean Penn
Before we get started on the Mega Oscar Diary, let's go to a few random ramblings from the cadre of pre-shows around the dial:

-Philip Seymour Hoffman's hat probably came with a matching set of fingerless gloves.

-Those who were unable to see the Los Angeles CW affiliate's pre-show missed this exchange.

-The CW's Female Host: What is the role you'd love to do next. If you could do anything following 'The Wrestler' what would it be?

-Mickey Rourke: (Slowly eyes her up from head to toe with a knowing smile and walks off.)

-I know a lot of people care about fashion, ...

The Wrestler
(Truth Justice and Gordon Shumway - weekly column) I'm not going to lie to you, 2008 was a pretty terrible year. But, over here at "TJAGS" we're not going to focus on the bad; instead, let's focus on ten good things that happened during the past year. Not just good things, not just great things, but some may be inclined to call call them the ten "best" things to happen, at least in the world of entertainment, in 2008.

Writer's Viewpoint: A Visit To 'Inside The Actor's Studio' With Josh Brolin

December 2nd, 2008 1:53pm EST
Josh Brolin
There is always a peculiar aura in the air when James Lipton shows up on my television screen; I am quite transfixed with pure unadulterated fascination. Having said that, it should come to no one's surprise that I did not think twice when given the chance to attend a taping of "Inside the Actor's Studio" and be in the presence of Mr. Lipton once again (I had once seen him walk by me at a New York Mets game. Although I do hold out hope, I doubt he remembers me.)

Recorded on a blistering cold (well, not quite but it sounds good for effect) evening at Pace University, the guest of honor ...

10 Things We're Thankful For This Year - What Are You Thankful For?

Before we fall into the annual Thanksgiving tryptophan coma, we'd like to take a few minutes to give thanks for some of the best pop cultural presents received in 2008.

Paul Rudd

This year, the ubiquitous, sexy-silly actor showed up in “Over Her Dead Body,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” and “Role Models,” guested on HBO’s “Little Britain USA,” and hosted “Saturday Night Live.” Add to that the near-constant airings of “Knocked Up” on HBO and “Clueless” on every other channel, and it’s virtually impossible to get away from the guy…which is just how we like it!

Five Most Overrated & Underrated Political Films

November 14th, 2008 9:57am EST
W
We just went through the most fascinating and compelling election season ever in the television age. A lot of people are glad it's over, but there are those who simply can't get enough of the entertainment that is politics.

Unfortunately for the latter group, the only politics on TV right now involves Sarah Palin making the rounds and discussing the matters of a state with a population density that makes the Sahara Desert look like mid-town Manhattan. In other words, it's a snoozer.

So the last respite for these political junkies is the political movie. But which to choose? Th...

Celebrity Fashion Review: Fall Awakening and Sleepers

Chilly months are closely approaching, but regardless of this fact, some Hollywood starlets still manage to put their best red-carpet looks forward for that perfect step and repeat photo opportunity. While others, unfortunately, never fail to disappoint us.

Fall Awakening

Dashing Thandie is how we should refer to actress Thandie Newton. This beauty always looks amazing in anything she dons. At the New York City premiere of the movie "W" held at The Ziegfeld Theater on October 14, she took her 'wow' appeal to another level. Sporting a gorgeous one shoulder black dress with ruffle...

Oliver Stone's 'W': Is This Movie Necessary?

Turn on any television lately and it is near impossible to avoid the immense amount of political coverage being offered -- which is not necessarily a bad thing, considering the magnitude of this years election. One of the few refuges from the pundits and wonks was the local Cineplex, this all changes this weekend with the release of Oliver Stone's W.

The question is: Is this movie necessary? Well, maybe. It is an interesting dynamic that this movie is being released -- thanks to a rush production job; they started filming in May! -- while George W. Bush is still very much the President...

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. ...
