BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Justin Long has admitted that he “freaked out“ the night before he played George Harrison in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. Long was overwhelmed by the opportunity to play the favorite member of his favorite band, which he did alongside Paul Rudd’s John Lennon, Jack Black’s Paul McCartney and Jason Schwartzman’s Ringo Starr.
Justin Long has revealed that he has held discussions with director Kevin Smith about a Zack And Miri Make A Porno spin-off film that would revolve around his character from the raunchy sex-comedy, Brandon St. Randy.
Long before he was palling around with John McClane in Live Free or Die Hard or being turned into a walrus by Kevin Smith, Justin Long was starring in one of the best sci-fi cult classics of the last 20 years. Director Dean Parisot's 1999 comedy Galaxy Quest, both a spoof and loving tribute to Star Trek, was the actor's first big screen acting gig and featured him as an obsessive geek who helps the stars of his favorite television show save the world from evil aliens.
So exactly what the hell is going on in this picture? Well, in Tusk Justin Long stars as Wallace Bryton, a podcast host who goes missing after going to interview a mysterious seafarer named Mr. Howe (Michael Parks). As you can see, Long doesn't end up being the kind of kidnapping victim who is tied up and locked in a closet. Instead, it would seem that Mr. Howe is determined to transform Wallace into some kind of human walrus.
Several months ago, Kevin Smith teased the world by saying “He's In! He's In!”. He was referencing to a big name star that he's landed for his latest film Tusk, and thanks to a recent interview with Justin Long, a bunch of kids may have gotten their first big entertainment scoop. According to said interview, Johnny Depp will co-starring with Long and Michael Parks, in the much talked about indie film known best for delaying Clerks III.
So with Parks in mind, Smith “wrote the script around him, so it’s nothing but Michael Parks dialogue porn. Justin Long is the guy in the walrus suit. I needed a guy who has expressive eyes because once you’re in that suit, you’re covered.”
Among the films to screen at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year was Justin Long's A Case of You, a romantic comedy that stars Long as a writer who makes a few alterations to his online profile in an effort to win over Birdie Hazel, a Brooklynite played by Evan Rachel Wood. As the new theatrical trailer indicates things don't go quite as he planned.
Comet will bounce back and forth over a six-year relationship between Long and Rossum’s perfectly-paired couple, and according to Deadline, Esmail says the film is “about the drama, comedy and utterly surreal state of heartbreak – a subject in which I am well-versed.”
Nichols, however, is making a name for herself in the action genre. Yes, the former model was in the 2005 Amityville Horror remake alongside Ryan Reynolds. But her top credits include a stint on Alias and roles in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek, 2011’s Conan the Barbarian reboot, and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.
Justin Long might always be remembered as “the Mac guy,” because his commercials for the computer giant so far have eclipsed his film work. Long has appeared in a Die Hard sequel, Galaxy Quest, two Jeepers Creepers movies, Dodgeball and a string of Alvin and the Chipmunks flicks, but maybe a potential collaboration on a vintage Stephen King short story will put him over the top.
Sienna Miller and Brendan Fraser are the latest actors to sign on to the Justin Long-penned romantic comedy A Case of You, joining a cast that includes Long himself, his co-writer Keir O'Donnell, Evan Rachel Wood, Peter Dinklage and Busy Philipps. The movie centers on a young writer who looks for love online, and uses his "gift for fiction"--as David Mamet would say--to enhance his dating site profile
As great (and memorable) as the Mac ads were, Long has appeared in enough films before and since then to show his true potential as an actor. He’s also done some TV work, including voice-work in FX’s new animated comedy Unsupervised, as well as a charming recurring guest appearance Fox’s New Girl. It looks like we’ll be getting to see his potential as a writer (and a producer) with the upcoming indie film A Case of You.
The basic premise follows Long's character, Scott, who's dealt a crushing blow after his buddy, the title character and resident wild man in the group of friends, dies right before his buddy's wedding. Saddened and cheated out of a honeymoon, Scott heads back to his hometown of Minneapolis to bury his friend
Justin Long has been a working actor for over a decade now but never exactly what anyone would describe as a powerhouse, so he's doing what any actor with even minimal smarts and long-term planning skills would
The new trailer for Going the Distance is, overall, a pretty big improvement. Drew Barrymore and Justin Long’s movie about a long distance romance has never seemed more upbeat and fun
