Photos: Jennifer Aniston, Owen Wilson, and Kathryn Hahn on the Set of Squirrels to the Nuts
As temperatures in Gotham rose into triple digits last week, the National Weather Service implored New Yorkers to stay indoors and crank the air-conditioning. Among the stars of Peter Bogdanovich’s upcoming comedy, Squirrels to the Nuts—starring Owen Wilson as a Broadway director who casts a prostitute (Brie Larson)—only Jennifer Aniston seems to have listened. At the July 16 shoot, on 94th Street between Madison and Fifth, she spent two hours in a trailer, for makeup and wardrobe tests, then fled the set in a Town Car.Aniston’s co-stars, meanwhile, risked sunstroke to shoot two scenes, one in which Wilson and Kathryn Hahn rode around the block in a cab and another in which they exited a limo and entered an apartment building with child actors in tow. Between takes, Hahn sipped water, and Bogdanovich, directing his first feature since 2001’s The Cat’s Meow, was fanned by an assistant.

John Mellencamp Upset By Scott Walker's Use Of Song

John Mellencamp Upset By Scott Walker's Use Of Song
Madison, Wis. -- Liberal rocker John Mellencamp wants Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker to know he supports collective bargaining and union rights and says Walker should be aware of that before using his song "Small Town" on the campaign trail.

Mellencamp's publicist Bob Merlis told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he sent Walker's campaign an email not asking him to stop using the song, but to inform him of Mellencamp's beliefs.

"He's a very liberal person," Merlis said of the singer. "He appeared at the Democratic National Convention in 2004. His wife at the time was a delegate at large. He's very pro-collective bargaining and the fight for a living wage."

Merlis said he sent an email to Walker's campaign spokeswoman Ciara Matthews. She did not immediately return a message to AP seeking comment.

Walker faces a June 5 recall election that was motivated over anger related to his proposal passed

  • NextMovie
School is back in session and the summer movie season has wrapped, which means the pop-culture focus temporarily shifts to television until the annual slate of Oscar contenders and holiday blockbusters hit theaters.

This fall, though, you'll notice the new television season has a host of big movie stars transitioning to primetime, either for the first time, like Luke Wilson, or in a splashy return, like Ashton Kutcher.

While the majority of film actors are headlining high-profile series, a couple of them are lining up for key supporting roles in ensemble casts. Take a look at these 15 familiar faces and find out where you can catch them on the small screen this year.

James Caviezel's Box Office: Pre- and Post-the Passion Of The Christ

James Caviezel, Frequency James Caviezel's Jesus Backlash: "Rejected in My Own Industry" Below is the domestic box-office take of James Caviezel's films, whether in leads or supporting roles, released from 2004 to the present (via Box Office Mojo). Could that be one important reason producers have shied away from him? Highway Men (2004), $371k The Passion of the Christ (2004), $370.78m Bobby Jones: Stroke of Genius (2004), $2.69m The Final Cut (2004), $551k I Am David (2004), $288k Madison (2005), $517k Unknown (2006), $26k Deja Vu (2006), starring Denzel Washington, $64.03m Outland (2009), $166k The Stoning of Soraya M. (2009), $637k Caviezel's pre-2004 films — including supporting roles — generally performed much better perhaps because he was usually partnered with bigger names, including Jennifer Lopez, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Spacey, Helen Hunt, and Dennis Quaid. Even so, none of his movies could be called a blockbuster. Titles from 1998 to 2002 are listed [...]

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Seven

I Am Number Four

Opens: February 18th 2011

Cast: Alex Pettyfer, Timothy Olyphant, Dianna Agron, Kevin Durand, Teresa Palmer

Director: D.J. Caruso

Summary: Nine infant aliens flee their home planet to hide out on Earth. The species that destroyed their planet however has followed them and sets out to hunt them down. As the infants grow into teenagers with special powers, three of them are killed. A fourth has fallen in love and now has something to stand up and fight for.

Analysis: In premise and look, this sounds like a big budget and more action-oriented reboot of late sci-fi teen drama "Roswell". Though based on a young adult novel series, it was another title in this category that was the impetus for this adaptation - Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" series. Any novels with a focus on teen romance and an other worldly touch are presently being bought up right and

The 9 Best Movie Soundtracks of 2010

  • NextMovie
Much of this past year was spent talking about the visual aspect of movies, what with the whole 3-D revolution (or plague, depending on your perspective) and the increased sophistication of CGI effects. But let’s not forget the other half of the audio/visual equation.

There were plenty of musical moments to celebrate at the theater in 2010, and fans of film soundtracks had plenty to hang their hats on.

Here are our picks for the best of the bunch, and whether your tastes run to hip-hop, rock, or just a big, ol’ “Bonnnnng” sound, there’s something here for your ears.

9. ‘Grown Ups

There wasn’t much to celebrate about the latest Happy Madison production (unless you were one of the film’s stars and got to hang out with your comedian buddies for a couple months on the company dime), but if there’s one thing every Adam Sandler movie knows,

'In Plain Sight' Taps New Showrunners

'In Plain Sight' Taps New Showrunners
Exclusive: Ed Decter and John Strauss have signed on as the new executive producers/showrunners on USA Network’s drama In Plain Sight. The There's Something About Mary scribes will succeed John McNamara who served as executive producer/showrunner this past season. McNamara left the series in the summer for medical reasons. As a result, In Plain Sight’s third season was shortened from 16 to 13 episodes. In July, shortly after the third season wrapped with an average of 5.2 million viewers, 1.8 million in them in the adults 18-49 demographic, USA renewed In Plain Sight for 2 more seasons. Decter and Strauss’ whose writing credits include the two Santa Claus sequels and the 2007 NBC pilot The Watch, are said to be huge fans of USA's U.S. marshal drama starring Mary McCormack. Despite their expansive comedy background, the two plan to stay true to the show's format and tone while keeping with McCormack's character's witty banter.

DVD Playhouse--March 2010

DVD Playhouse: March 2010

By

Allen Gardner

Precious: Based On The Novel “Push” By Sapphire (Lionsgate) In-your-face, but undeniably powerful film that follows the plight of an overweight inner-city teen (Gabourey Sidbe, a real find) who must deal with an abusive mother (Mo’Nique, in a career-making turn for which she won a most-deserved Best Supporting Actress Oscar), a baby born of her abusive, and absent, father, and trying to survive day-to-day with few people to offer her help, save for a sympathetic teacher (Paula Patton) in a special ed program. Director/producer Lee Daniels, a former personal manager/producer-turned-filmmaker, brings a kitchen sink authenticity to the proceedings, along with a cast of famous powerhouse performers, who manage to disappear into their roles. Tough stuff, but not to be missed. Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay (Geoffrey Fletcher). Bonuses: Commentary by Daniels; Featurettes; Interviews with Sapphire and Daniels; Deleted scene. Widescreen. Dolby 5.1 surround.

Russell Brand is the Gordon Bombay of High School Soccer

There have been countless films with big actors leading a hapless sports team struggling against seemingly insurmountable odds to get to the championship and learn what sportsmanship is all about. Will Ferrell did it recently in Kicking and Screaming, but I don't think anyone did it better than Emilio Estevez as Mighty Ducks coach Gordon Bombay. Now Deadline Hollywood reports Russell Brand will take a crack at it as he's attached to a pitch as a David Beckham-like millionaire soccer star/playboy who gets arrested and must do community service coaching the high school soccer team in a Friday Night Lights-esque town. Read on! The pitch comes from newcomers William and Scott Bindley (of Madison previously) and was picked up by Warner Bros, who already have Brand starring in a remake of the Dudley Moore classic comedy Arthur. This definitely has potential, but as I've observed after seeing

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Four

Georgia

Opens: 2010

Cast: Val Kilmer, Andy Garcia, Rupert Friend, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Johnathon Schaech

Director: Renny Harlin

Summary: An American journalist, his cameraman, and a Georgian native get caught in the crossfire of the five-day Russia-Georgia conflict in August 2008, and then have to deal with their obligation to be impartial.

Analysis: A timely parable on war, or Hollywood propaganda filmmaking at its worst? Wherever it goes, especially in Europe and the former Soviet states, "Georgia" will cause a lot of talk and controversy as the incidents depicted are still so fresh in many's minds. Like all topics of the sort, it'll also have its strong supporters and detractors having opinions on the film long before a frame of footage is screened anywhere.

Shot on-location in Tbilisi, the project also marks a potential return to form for Finnish director Renny Harlin. Given the right material the skilled action director delivered three

The Unusual Suspects

Almost every year, it seems there are complaints about it being a bad year for women's roles. For some reason, that buzz is especially loud for 2009, as critics are making their year-end lists and finding the women's categories falling short. At which point, I have to feel some empathy for actors like Jess Weixler—who poured her heart and soul into the small indie romance "Peter and Vandy"—and it makes me wonder what more critics could want. Weixler commands the screen in the film, which focuses almost entirely on the two title characters. She's in every scene, playing a range of emotions, from repressed anger to deep infatuation. It's a terrific role and she doesn't miss a beat. Yet her name doesn't appear on any year-end critic's lists.The same can be said of Sophie Okonedo, a previous Oscar nominee for "Hotel Rwanda," who earned raves for her turn

Propects for Emmy acting awards

From drama, comedy and miniseries, these actors are up for the part.

By Tom O'Neil, The Envelope

June 4, 2008

Emmy's winners for acting are chosen in a three-tier system by actors who belong to the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. During the first two weeks of June, they participate in a popular vote that determines a Top 10 runoff in each race. Finalists submit a sample episode of their best work to judges, whose scores are combined by accountants in a 50-50 mix with results of the original popular vote. The five nominees in each category are then announced July 17. Winners are decided based on judges' scores of the sample episodes and are revealed at the awards ceremony to
