Over the years, The Princess Bride has achieved legendary status in Hollywood. Shockingly, the movie wasn’t a big hit when it was released 30 years ago: It only grossed just over $30 million, and it never ranked higher than No. 3 for any weekend during its theatrical run. But Rob Reiner’s comedic fantasy has become one of the most beloved — and most quoted — movies of its generation, and it’s now looked upon as one of the classic movies of its time. The film featured an amazing ensemble cast that included Billy Crystal, Mandy Patinkin, Carol Kane, Fred Savage, Andre The Giant, and Peter Falk. It was also the breakout film for a young (and, at that time, unknown) actor named Cary Elwes, who looks back fondly upon the making of The Princess Bride. (Click on the media bar below to hear Cary Elwes)

Richard Schiff won an Emmy for his work on The West Wing, but he’s been largely absent from network television since that beloved drama signed off in 2006. He’s been involved with several other shows — mostly on cable — but he’s returned to primetime on ABC’s new medical drama, The Good Doctor. On the show, he’s a mentor and father figure to the main character, an autistic doctor played by Freddie Highmore. So what sold Schiff on The Good Doctor? Part of it was a talk he had with the show’s creator, David Shore (House), but part of it was an amazing experience he had when he was a young actor and felt like an outsider. (Click on the media bar below to hear Richard Schiff)

The Good Doctor airs Monday nights at 10/9c on ABC.

madeaAs movie characters go, Madea wasn’t exactly the type you would expect to be a breakout character. When she was introduced, she was a moody grandmother, played by a man less than half her age! But Tyler Perry, who created the character and has written all of her films, was able to turn her into a phenomenon. The 10th Madea movie, Boo 2! A Madea Halloween, is about to open and will likely continue the franchises run of hits (the movies have grossed more than twice as much as they cost to make). So, why does Tyler Perry think everybody loves Madea? (Click on the media bar below to hear Tyler Perry)

Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! A Madea Halloween will open in theaters this Friday.

Kaley Cuoco has had the kind of career young actors dream about when they arrive in Hollywood: She’s had steady TV jobs for the last 15 years, on 8 Simple Rules, Charmed, and, of course, on The Big Bang Theory. It’s been a remarkable run for Cuoco, especially considering it started when she was just 16 years old! (Kaley Cuoco fun fact: One of her early, pre-stardom TV roles was a young version of Ellen DeGeneres in a flashback on the comedienne’s ’90s sitcom, Ellen.) With The Big Bang Theory now in its 11th season, it has become one of the longest-running TV comedies of all time, a fact that Cuoco definitely has not taken for granted. (Click on the audio player below to hear Kaley Cuoco)

New episodes of The Big Bang Theory air Monday nights at 8/7c on CBS.

The SnowmanBased on Jo Nesbø’s bestselling novel, The Snowman centers on Harry Hole (Michael Fassbender), a detective who is on the trail of an elusive serial killer, With hardly any friends and a fondness for alcohol, Harry is not the most sociable type.

“For Harry obviously the drinking thing is he’s just seeking to stop the incessant noise in his head,” said Fassbender. “He can’t really shut his mind off and it’s only if a serial killer comes about and there seems to be quite a few in Scandinavia, lucky for him that he can sort of really channel this brilliance that he has.”

Rebecca Ferguson co-stars as the recruit who aids Harry in his quest for “The Snowman Killer.”

Click on the media bar to hear Fassbender talk about what makes “The Snowman Killer” such an interesting antagonist.

Directed by Tomas Alfredson (Tinker Tailor Solder Spy) and co-starring Oscar winning actor J.K. Simmons, The Snowman opens nationwide October 20.

keepwatching1

Formerly titled Home Invasion, the Bella Thorne headlined feature Keep Watching will receive a one night showing (10 pm) on Halloween (October 31).

Produced by Joel Silver’s production company Zinc Entertainment, the story centers on a family who are forced to play a game of “kill, or be killed” by a group of intruders. The family’s waking nightmare is also being streamed to a perverse audience that can’t turn their eyes off their respective screen. The flick co-stars Leigh Whannell, Ioan Gruffudd and Chandler Riggs.

Directed by Sean Carter, this slasher flick may have a thing or two to say about how the all corrupting powers of the media (or maybe it’s about our need for a bit of blood lust?), but maybe we’re reading into this horror thriller a bit too much. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
