Ryan Gosling tried to get Rachel McAdams replaced while filming The Notebook

As much as I dislike the works of author Nicholas Sparks , I have to admit that THE NOTEBOOK may be the most tolerable. Yes, it is tripe and overly sentimental, but the romance between Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams feels genuine. And then I heard the news that Gosling and McAdams did not get along during production on the Nick Cassavetes film. In fact, Cassavetes revealed that...

Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Out of the Furnace Star Christian Bale!

As much as I loved Christian Bale’s take on THE DARK KNIGHT in Christopher Nolan’s trilogy, it is always refreshing to see the actor take on more intimately dramatic films. In OUT OF THE FURNACE, Bale plays a loving brother who finds himself at war with a very volatile baddie courtesy of the fantastic Woody Harrelson. Both Bale and his on-screen brother Casey Affleck offer...

Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Out of the Furnace Director Scott Cooper and Star Woody Harrelson!

Over the past few years Woody Harrelson has become one of my favorite guys to sit down and chat with. In his latest feature OUT OF THE FURNACE, he plays a vicious character and he does so perfectly. Of course Woody is a fantastic actor, but Scott Cooper (CRAZY HEART) is an incredible filmmaker as well with a very unique voice. With this film he challenges expectations and makes for very...

Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Out of the Furnace Star Casey Affleck!

Over the past few years Casey Affleck has become a favorite of mine. With his scene-stealing work in THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD as well as GONE BABY GONE, he has proven to be a formidable talent. This is especially evident in his latest feature, the intense drama OUT OF THE FURNACE directed by Scott Cooper (CRAZY HEART). As Christian Bale’s troubled brother,...
