William Sadler
If performance prowess is measured in amount of diverse work created, then actor William Sadler is without question one of the greats. His amazing characters (Bill & Ted’s Grim Reaper anyone?!), memorable movie moments (a little naked martial arts via the opening of "Die Hard 2!") and sheer quantity of notable credits ("The Shawshank Redemption" – need I say more?) has made him one of the most recognizable faces in film and TV for over two decades. Plus having worked with the likes of Renny Harlin, Walter Hill, David Nutter, Bill Condon and even Frank Darabont (three times no less!) has s...

Shia LaBeouf: A Former Disney Star Who Is Bucking The Trend

Shia LaBeouf
Shia LaBeouf is an interesting young Hollywood star because unlike a variety of former Disney stars, he's managed to slide his way into the adult acting world with very few bad moves.

Born to an interesting family in California, his mother a ballerina/designer and his father a former mime, his name means "Gift from God" in Hebrew and is often mispronounced by fans and critics alike (it's SHY-uh). Shia started acting as a child, starting in "Caroline in the City," but he became famous for playing Louis Stevens in the Disney show "Even Stevens."

This success came rather quickly for Shi...

Why Some Horror Trilogies Work When Others Don't

October 15th, 2008 10:12am EDT
Randy (Jamie Kennedy) from Wes Craven's Scream once said that in trilogies "all bets are off." Since a series has a clear-cut end when it is deemed a trilogy, certain characters-- even the leads-- don't have to be kept alive for countless resurrections down the road, which basically gives the filmmakers free range to do whatever they want. The shocks are bigger, the blood is brighter, and the deaths are more elaborate. Unfortunately, though, this often just leaves the filmmakers trying to one-up themselves with each subsequent installment, creating superfluous, and often inane, twists tha...

Movie pals Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are looking to team up professionally again - as co-directors. The Oscar-winning pals, who teamed up as writers and actors in Good Will Hunting, actors in Dogma and producers for reality TV series Project Greenlight, are looking to work together again.

Damon reveals, "Ben and I found a project to co-direct that we might be able to get off the ground. We're just kind of on the hunt for something good. Directing feels like a natural extension, having written and then acted for all these years. It just feels like I gotta try it."

Fall 2006 Movie Preview: Horror Films

August 17th, 2006 4:00pm EDT
The Wicker Man
Fall officially begins Sept. 22, but The Wicker Man (Sept. 1) deserves a spot on the list of upcoming creepy movies. In this remake, a young child has gone missing and it's up to a kindly but haunted sheriff (Nicolas Cage) to travel to the remote island community where she was last seen and solve the lingering mystery of her disappearance. The sheriff’s investigation is repeatedly stalled by the highly secretive, neo-pagan community that inhabits the island, and he soon discovers that there are still some cultures that refuse to play by the rules of modern society.

In The Covenant (Se...
