JEFFREY DEAN MORGAN (P.S. I LOVE YOU) turns in a great performance as The Comedian in the upcoming WATCHMEN epic but to a lot of his fans he’ll always be Denny Duquette, the patient who managed to win Izzy’s heart (KATHERINE HEIGL) before they rolled him off to the morgue. We spoke with MORGAN yesterday at the WATCHMEN press day and he talked about his days at Seattle Grace Hospital. Listen in below:
Two weeks away from opening and (just as we predicted) WATCHMEN fanboys are going giddy about the fact that the film’s DR. MANHATTAN character swings a big blue penis through most of the movie. We spoke with director ZACK SNYDER yesterday about this particular cast ‘member’ and he gave us his thoughts. Listen in below:
Next Monday, DAKOTA FANNING will celebrate her 15th birthday. And if you’ve seen her lately, you know she’s no longer the little girl she used to be. She’s growing up quickly, which means things will be changing (as far as her acting career goes). CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR BELOW:
Directed by MIKE JUDGE, JENNIFER ANISTON played a uniformed restaurant server without ‘flair’ and she reminisces about her time on OFFICE SPACE. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR BELOW TO HEAR JENNIFER ANISTON)
They’ve made it official again. Despite rumors to the contrary, ER really is coming to an end this year. Like a lot of the original cast members, NOAH WYLE is making an appearance tonight. He also hung out on the set a bit (even when he wasn’t filming).
Check ER out tonight on NBC
On this day in 1964, Warner Brothers released DEAD RINGER, directed by PAUL HENREID and starring BETTE DAVIS (his co-star in 1949’s NOW, VOYAGER). A low-budget, film noir thriller, the film features DAVIS as twin sisters in a plot that is more than just familiar. Supporting performances by PETER LAWFORD, KARL MALDEN and JEAN HAGEN contribute to this celebration of camp. DEAD RINGER is a charter member of our BAD MOVIES WE LOVE CLUB.
On this day in 1954, 20th Century Fox released NEW FACES OF 1954 (clever, eh?). Directed by HENRY HORNER and with sketches written by MEL BROOKS, this musical/comedy revue was a filmed performance (in CinemaScope, no less) of the highly popular Broadway revue that introduced the likes of EARTHA KITT, PAUL LYNDE, RONNIE GRAHAM, ROBERT CLARY and ALICE GHOSTLY. The attached clip really doesn’t do it justice but it’s all we could find.
Ask WATCHMEN screenwriter DAVID HAYTER (X-MEN, X-MEN 2) what he thinks about the FOX-WARNER BROTHERS battle over the rights to WATCHMEN and you’ll get an earfull. We spoke with him today at the press day for the film and we’re guessing HAYTER won’t be invited back on the Fox lot anytime soon. Listen in below:
Nobody is hotter right now than the teen rockers, THE JONAS BROTHERS. With a new series on The Disney Channel and a huge 3-D concert movie about to hit the screens, THE JO-BROS have almost reached 60’s-era BEATLES status. We sat in on the TCA press conference last month when KEVIN was asked how they manage to lead a ‘normal’ life when being chased by fans and circled by bodyguards. Listen in below:
