Since we started writing this feature series on movie endings, we’ve covered a wide variety. We’ve gone over confusing endings, twisty endings, debatable endings, and even a uniquely-structured ending. This time around, however, we have something very different: the out-of-left-field ending.
Oh, Kevin James. What are we gonna do with you? Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2. Really? To inspire better choices for you in the future, here are 10 comedians who’ve dabbled in drama and have become better actors for it.
At last night's Academy Awards ceremony, nominee Steve Carell wore a set of cufflinks on his wrist in support of a gender equality movement called He For She. You probably didn't notice it during the broadcast last night, but Emma Watson evidently wants the world to recognize his support for the campaign.
On Sunday, the Academy Awards will attempt to determine which actors and actress gave the best performances this year. To tide us over here is a list of the 10 most likeable Oscar nominees, according to Americans.
With Steve Carell's latest career choices, he is slowly creeping up the ladder as Hollywood's "Most Likable Actor" - not only as one of our favorite comedic actors, but now as one of our most interesting dramatic actors.
It's always exciting when large-scale ensemble dramas are announced. These projects open up special doors that allow some of the best actors in the industry to work with and bounce off other like none other, and it's fun to watch and see just how many A-listers can be packaged into one feature.
SPOILER ALERT: The following article contains light spoilers for Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher. If you haven't seen the film and don't wish to be spoiled, please click over to another one of our wonderful articles.
Foxcatcher is in theaters now, and is earning raves for Miller’s direction, as well as for the acting performances of the three male leads – Tatum, Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo. Could this controversy start to damage the film’s reputation? Or is it all a massive misunderstanding?
I could dig, analyze and appreciate Foxcatcher for years. All of that being said, Foxcatcher is remarkable. It is a stirring thesis about how wealthy power brokers manipulate situations, and how those without influence are seduced.
Just because you don't hear about a certain in-development movie for a number of years doesn't actually mean that the project will never end up on the silver screen. Some are just destined to spend a bit of time in what has been dubbed "Development Hell." Take, for example, the Looney Tunes Acme factory film. We first wrote about the feature all the way back in October 2010, but haven't heard a peep about it since. That is, until now.
There is a tremendous amount of buzz surrounding Steve Carell’s upcoming performance in Foxcatcher. In fact, the actor is expected to be a major force this awards season. He is, by all accounts, great in the film.
Steve Carell will produce and star in Brooklyn Family Robinson, a family adventure comedy penned by David Reynolds, writer of the beloved Pixar classic Finding Nemo.
Ken Jeong is attached to front International Incident, a comedy penned by former The Daily Show With Jon Stewart scribe David Javerbaum. The Jeong vehicle's story will follow five United Nations delegates who set out on a roadtrip--presumably across America--to rediscover a lost love.
Not familiar with Foxcatcher? In the film, Steve Carell plays schizophrenic American mogul John DuPont, who enters into a deadly standoff with former Olympic wrestling champion Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) after DuPont murders Schultz’s brother (played by Mark Ruffalo).
How do you adapt a children's book into something that parents will look forward to seeing as much as their kids? It doesn't hurt to have Steve Carell headline. That's the strategy Disney has taken with their upcoming live-action adaptation of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.
Miami high school teacher David Menasche's recent memoir The Priority List: A Teacher’s Final Quest to Discover Life’s Greatest Lessons was acquired by Warner Bros. and already has the leading man on board as Steve Carell is attached to star as well as produce via his shingle Carousel Productions.
IndieWire reports Miller and the producers are pushing the planned December release of Foxcatcher off until 2014. This is the point in which I jump up and down, beating my chest, yelling, “Are you kidding me?” Luckily, Sony Pictures wisely released the film’s first trailer and gave us something to bide our time with, and boy is it a doozy.
I've had my eye on Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher for ages, and for a lot of the obvious Oscar-baity reasons. It's the follow-up film from the director of Moneyball and Capote, and tells another true story with a tinge of murder, about how the heir to a massive fortune came to sponsor a wrestling team and eventually murder one of the players. And, as you might expect from the guy who made Moneyball, Foxcatcher has a fantastic cast in place to draw you in
It sounds a drastic shift for Miller, though Capote was a true-crime drama-thriller driven by elaborate characters and top-shelf acting. Carell and Ruffalo certainly is capable of soul-searching performances. The wild card will be Tatum, who absolutely has grown and matured as an actor.
