Chris Pine Tackles Diverse Roles Like A ‘Boss’

_rbdave73dj1_hires23Star Trek star Chris Pine started 2014 in big form having starred in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. His year may end even bigger. He currently stars in the comedy Horrible Bosses 2, and will also been seen in the highly anticipated Stephen Sondheim musical, Into the Woods, where he stars along Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp.

Obviously these two movies are on opposite sides of the spectrum. Pine, who is now being offered many different kinds of roles, told us that when it came down to Horrible Bosses 2 and Into the Woods, it was the two very different characters that made him smile, and satisfied him creatively.

Emotionally, Reese Witherspoon’s New Movie Was A ‘Wild’ Ride

_rbdave73dj1_hires22Reese Witherspoon turns in one of the best performances of her career starring in the drama Wild, opening in theaters on December 5, 2014.

The film centers around a woman (Witherspoon) who decides to hike the Pacific Crest Trail alone in order to cope with traumatic experiences she has endured in her life. Her hike spanned a thousand miles.

Witherspoon explains that not only was Wild one of the most physically demanding movies she has ever done (due to such things as hanging off mountain cliffs), the film was also emotionally exhausting dealing with the emotional scenes she had to act.

Is Christopher Walken Intimidated By Peter Pan?

NUP_166283_0992.jpgLast year, the beloved musical, The Sound of Music, was performed live and was very successful.

Walken is no stranger to performing in musicals, having starred in many music videos, his memorable episodes of Saturday Night Live, and movie musicals including Hairspray. But performing in Peter Pan is something completely different than Walken has done before. Walken gives us details about how he and his fellow cast members are preparing for the live musical, which has been an intimidating process. (Click on the media bar below to hear Christopher Walken)

Jennifer Aniston Was Overwhelmed By The Success Of Horrible Bosses

_rbolivia68dj1_hires11Jennifer Aniston reprises the character Dr. Julia Harris, D.D.S. in the new comedy, Horrible Bosses 2 opening this Wednesday.

The first Horrible Bosses opened in 2011 and what some consider a surprise hit, grossed over $117,538,559 domestically. While many movies are being made, the filmmakers and actors don’t have an inkling whether the film will end up being what they envisioned. However that isn’t the case for Horrible Bosses. Jennifer Aniston explains that as they were making the film, they knew it was funny, but it was not until it became a hit that they knew their instincts were correct and were overwhelmed by the success of the first film.
