Entourage Trailer

The world of acting is no longer enough for superstar Vincent Chase, whose now looking at a career in directing. With his lifestyle having taken a significant overhaul following several years of hedonism (though it might not seem like it), Ari Gold is still acting as his agent despite his new job as CEO of Time Warner and is willing to give his client a shot at what he wants to do - even if no-one else seems to think he can pull off directing. He lands a $100 million budget but things get complicated when he goes over by $15 million. Vince isn't overly concerned with the film becoming a flop, but it could mean the end of Ari's career before its started if it doesn't come through.

'Entourage' Movie Finally Sees The Light Of Day [Trailer And Pictures]

With such a great cast of cameos during its time on HBO, 'Entourage' had better have something impressive lined up for its feature film. Luckily, it certainly does.

Cameo appearances can make for some of the greatest moments in movies. Remember seeing Alice Cooper in 'Wayne's World'? Stan Lee in 'Mall Rats'? Mike Tyson in 'The Hangover'? Or, possibly the greatest cameo of all time, Bill Murray in 'Zombieland'? Well, for a show set in and around Hollywood, based on the exploits of rapper/actor/executive producer Mark Wahlberg, it was understandable why HBO's 'Entourage' has more than its fair share of A-list cameos.

Over the course of its seven-year runtime, 'Entourage' racked up a very impressive list of cameo performances, including Jessica Alba, Scarlett Johansson, Hugh Hefner, Peter Dinklage, James Cameron, Seth Green, Snoop Dogg, Peter Jackson - you get the idea. There were an awful lot of people getting involved in 'Entourage', so it stands to reason that when the trailer for the feature adaptation launched, people were eagerly looking to see who would be making an appearance outside of the main cast.

Bounty Killer Review

By Rich Cline


Like a spoof mash-up of Mad Max and Machete, this nutty action movie throws us into a Wild West dystopia with enough wit and energy to overcome its clunky production values. A whiff of serious subtext helps too. Although it's essentially just a riotous B-movie thrill ride without much of a plot.

The story takes place in the near future, after the Corporate Wars destroyed the world. Now the former company executives are under death warrants, chased by superstar bounty killers through the desolate landscape. One of the most notorious killers is Drifter (Marsden), who has a bounty on his head after sniffing too close to a major scandal. As he heads to the Council to clear his name, he and his new gun caddy Jack (Hardley) are chased by the glamourous killer Mary Death (Pitre). And all of them are being pursued by the relentless Van Sterling (Busey), whose shady boss (Loken) is working on some sort of nefarious plan.

The film's luridly colourful design echoes its graphic-novel origins, as do the comic-book animation segments. And the violence is relentlessly blood-spurting, keeping us laughing so we don't notice how cheesy the effects and action really are. Fortunately, everything is underscored with sardonic humour, rude jokes and melodramatic characters, each of whom has a torrid history. This allows for plenty of irrelevant innuendo, especially between the inexpressive Marsden and the striking Pitre.

The 10 Greatest Christmas Horror Movies To Watch This Season

By Lauren James in Movies / TV / Theatre on 09 December 2013

Gary Busey Johnny Depp Tim Burton

Prepare for poor puns, dodgy prosthetics and a whole lotta festive weird: for your delectation and delight, here's our list of the top ten Christmas horror movies!

As we plunge ever deeper into the sickly sweet realms of the festive season, resplendent in its gaudy, glittering and gluttonous glory, you may feel that baubles, mince pies, carols and fairy lights are being shoved down your snowman scarf-wrapped throat without mercy.

Where then, do you go for respite from the relentless seasonal cheer; to take a break from the never-ending goodwill? Sometimes we just need to see Santa behaving badly - and we're not talking about him giving Mariah Carey some cheeky undies.

Though a permanent solution to the annual saccharine onslaught may be to move to the Middle East, a more likely antidote is the Christmas horror film. This perfect dichotomy of Christmas joy tainted with cathartic bloodletting is rarely family-friendly watching but can be a deviously dark remedy.

Barking Mad: Embarrassing Exit For Gary Busey On Celebrity Apprentice

By Jack de Aguilar in Lifestyle / Showbiz on 29 April 2013

Gary Busey

What's this crazy cat done now? Or should we say dog...

When entering a celebrity reality show, the first thing your press officer would tell you is ‘nothing silly’. And they’d be right, but Gary Busey didn’t listen. He was booted from Celebrity Apprentice after portraying a dog in a failed presentation for his team.

It all started with Gary being handed the leader for this particular task. “At least with Gary being team leader he might have to step up and work Lisa Rinna said, optimistically. “I’m not worried about Gary Busey being the team leader because he has me – I am a cheerleader for technology,” Penn Jillette said. But most pleased with this decision was Busey himself, stating: “The project managership is a gift and I’m here to win!” Although it wasn’t long before the actor fell behind. Busey just couldn’t get to grips with the modern technology! “This smartphone is like going to another planet without instructions,” he said. Penn Jillette agreed: “There is no chance Gary can understand it, no chance."

Mike Busey Arrested For Selling Liquor At His House Party

By Hayley Avron in Lifestyle / Showbiz on 24 December 2012

Gary Busey

Mike Busey was arrested on Friday night (December 21, 2012) after his neighbours got sick of his wild party and called the cops. The son of actor Gary Busey, who likes to be known as the King of Rock and Roll Debauchery, had been charging people $20 to get into his party and once they were in, he was selling them alcohol, without a license to do so. According to the Orlando Sentinel, one of those guests was actually a cop, who arrested Busey at his home in St. Cloud. His home, which, for the record, he refers to as The Sausage Castle, for reasons that we do not wish to be explained.

The party had been dubbed “Mike Busey’s End of the World Sexy Santa Holiday B-Day” and seems that Busey was hellbent on making as much cash before the end of the word, were it to actually happen. Except it would already have happened by the time the party took place, so you know, there were definitely holes in his business plan aside from the whole ‘getting arrested’ thing. The cops also weren’t happy that people were smoking weed at the party and that Mike was doing little to stop them. Busey seemed nonplussed by the whole affair, however, and simply boasted on Twitter the next day, “Last Night I Got Arrested For Throwing A EPIC Party!”

That will irk his neighbours somewhat, we would imagine. This is standard fare for Busey though, who has been evicted five times over his wild partying ways. Good luck to the current neighbours, we say.

Celebrity Apprentice Line-Up Revealed: The Busey Is Back!

By Contributor in Movies / TV / Theatre on 12 October 2012

Gary Busey BRET MICHAELS Stephen Baldwin Trace Adkins Lil Jon Marilu Henner Lisa Rinna La Toya Jackson Penn Jillette

The Celebrity Apprentice has revealed its cast for its forthcoming new series. Donald Trump returns to host the show and there are fourteen "celebrities" (the term appears to be getting more and more loosely judging by the names involved) who will be vying for the attention of the business mogul.

Ready for some the list, then? Here you go: BRET MICHAELS, Trace Adkins, Lil Jon, Marilu Henner, Lisa Rinna, La Toya Jackson, Gary Busey, Stephen Baldwin, Penn Jillette and Omarosa are among the names included for the forthcoming season. Busey's a personal favourite of ours thanks to his hilariously awful turn in the 1992 classic 'Under Siege'. If this season goes anything like that film, expect Busey to be bursting out of a cake dressed as a woman and wearing lipstick. Will it be enough to win him the competition? Hard to tell.

Stephen Baldwin commented on the show "So far it's been very sweet and peaceful and calm, but that's kind of scary. I think we've got a couple of zingers coming. It should be very exciting." Bret Michaels comeback to the show will hopefully be a smoother one for him. The Poison front man won the 2010 edition of the program, but did so whilst battling serious health problems. "I was really sick, and this time I'm ready to come back, but being a lifelong diabetic, I'm ready," he said. The winner, as usual, gains $250,000 for a charity of their choice. and a badly needed profile boost.
