The actor Ron Perlman reprised his popular “Hellboy” character from Guillermo Del Toro’s films in order to grant the wish of a six-year-old with leukemia through the Make-A-Wish Foundation; the four-hour makeup process Mr. Perlman endured was then reiterated on the young lad, who had wished to “meet and become Hellboy.” Cute/terrifying (depending on your Read More
Lindsay Lohan Reportedly Shocked at How Much Nudity Required to Play Opposite Porn Star James Deen in The Canyons
Bret Easton Ellis and Paul Schrader’s super white-hot project (via Kickstarter) The Canyons has already hit its first casting snag. Despite announcing Lindsay Lohan and approachable porn star James Deen as the movie’s stars earlier this week, the car-crashing actress apparently hasn’t signed her contract yet.
Which may be an issue, since someone on her team has been coaching the Herbie: Fully Loaded star how to read scripts. Read More
After a brief, heroic stint as the stoic Ned Stark in HBO’s Game of Thrones, Sean Bean has relapsed into the role that made him famous: the creepy bad guy. Arrested Wednesday and held for questioning, Mr. Bean (an unfortunate moniker for Brits,) spent most of yesterday in a South London police station after being accused of sending harassing phone calls to his ex-wife, Georgina Sutcliffe.

“Is that a real tattoo?” Harvey Weinstein, asked The New York Observer last night at the French Embassy on Park Ave and 78th. The producing legend had just finished trading off speeches with two French officials (including an ambassador who kept noting how cold our hands were…bad circulation, we guess) who praised the Miramax founder for his ability to consistently recognize the brilliance of French cinema.
Yes, the reports are true. Lindsay Lohan, who probably, sadly, defines the cinematic voice of “our generation” more than Lena Dunham (not all of us have friends who’ve had a magical miscarriage, but we’ve all known hot messes who shoplift, do too much Adderall, and decide to briefly try out lesbianism), has landed the part of icon Elizabeth Taylor in the TV movie Liz & Dick. Ms. Lohan has been vying for this job for months, even behaving herself–or at least, trying to– during Fashion Week to prove to the powers that she is definitely insurable on-set.
But before we start popping open bottles of sparkling cider and synching up our DUI ankle bracelets to spell VIVA LA LOHAN, let’s take a look at what this comeback actually entails. Read More
If the theater isn’t your thing, you might want to reconsider renouncing the Great White Way (thanks, Smash, for making that term ubiquitous again) until after buying tickets for Seminar. Jeff Goldblum, who is second maybe only to Neil Patrick Harris and John Malkovich in self-satirizing, told Jimmy Kimmel last night that he will be taking over for Alan Rickman in Theresa Rebeck‘s Seminar as the grumpy teacher, Leonard. Oh man, but will he be doing it as drunk Jeff Goldblum?? Read More
Well, someone just saw Vincent Gallo‘s autobiographical blowjob in Brown Bunny: Variety has just announced that facial hair/hat combo trendsetter Billy Bob Thornton will be co-writing and directing a movie based on his relationship with ex-wife Angelina Jolie.
Because you guys remember that, right? Billy Bob Thornton was married to Angelina Jolie? Okay, he’s just making sure. Read More
“Have you ever been to Minneapolis?” Billy Crudup asked the New York Observer last night at the Soho Grand Hotel’s Club Room, where the Cinema Society & Grey Goose were hosting an after-party for their screening of the bleakly dark comedy, Thin Ice.
We actually hadn’t been, but Mr. Crudup had, as that was where the movie had been shot.
“It’s very, very cold,” he told us.
“Oh, we can’t imagine. So in the movie…”
“No, no no noooo,” he interrupted us, chuckling. “It’s very, very cold.”
Billy Crudup then stared at the New York Observer for a beat, decided something, and leaned in to tell us a secret. Read More
Unsatisfied by his recent date night with Lady Gaga, Michael Bloomberg is to immerse himself further into pop culture with a meeting with the cast of Gossip Girl today. (Even his culture tastes are centered around the city’s ultra-upper crust!) The meeting is meant to publicize New York’s busiest year ever for TV production, but Read More
