The Good, The Bad & The Badass: Daniel Day-Lewis

Last week, we took a look at the career of leading man/director/producer extraordinaire George Clooney , certainly one of the most consistent people in the biz.

Cool Videos: See Nicolas Cage's lost audition for Steven Spielberg's Lincoln!

All right, all right, so it's not the REAL Nicolas Cage auditioning for LINCOLN, but it's a pretty damn funny rendition of what it might have been like, as performed by Big Bang Theory's Simon Helberg. The actual role was played with a deft touch by Daniel Day Lewis, who took over from Liam Neeson , who was long in the running to portray the influential President. However, one can only...

Steven Spielberg and George Lucas foresee an "implosion" and radical shift in the film industry

When Steven Spielberg and George Lucas talk, Hollywood listens. The two friends also represent some very different things: Spielberg is the ultimate studio director who has been able to get practically any film made while Lucas has become one of the biggest independent filmmakers of all time (Note: I use the term "independent filmmaker" to represent Lucas financing the STAR WARS...

Cool Videos: Watch President Obama play Daniel Day-Lewis for Steven Spielberg

The annual White House Correspondents Dinner was on Saturday night and it was chock full of actors, athletes, celebrities and oh yeah, politicians. In recent years the event has been criticized for being too much about the famous faces ( Lindsay Lohan was at the 2012 dinner...yikes) but I've enjoyed the different quotes and videos that have surfaced from previous dinners....

This Week in Blu-ray / DVD Releases: Lincoln, Killing Them Softly, Veep ...

This week: Daniel Day Lewis really is that damn good in Lincoln, Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a sponge-worthy vice president, and Brad Pitt reloads for Killing Them Softly.  ► Usually when an actor is a lock for Best Actor, it’s because of a showy performance which dwarfs everyone else (think Jamie Foxx for...

Cool Videos: Conan O'Brien spoofs Oscar Nominees

Conan O'Brien has always been one of my favorite comedians. When I was a kid I'd set the VCR (yes I'm old) to record his late night show since I wasn't allowed to stay up that late. Of course the VCR would turn on and wake my Mom up, who had no clue how to operate the device. "I don't even know how to work the damn thing and you have it turning off and on in the middle of the night...
