Greg Kinnear 'Method Acted' Tooth Out Of His Mouth


Greg Kinnear

In upcoming HBO drama film Confirmation, about the contentious hearings of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas in 1991, Greg plays Vice President Joe Biden, who was a senator at the time.

Speaking about getting into character, the actor told The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon that while filming he injured the same tooth that had been bothering Biden during the hearings.

"During these confirmation hearings he had a terrible tooth ache, and while we were making the movie, I went to watch a movie one afternoon myself when I wasn't working," he told Jimmy on Tuesday night (05Apr16), adding, "And I'm watching the film, having a little popcorn, and I suddenly realise my tooth is missing."

Heaven Is For Real Trailer


Todd Burpo has a fulfilling career as a businessman, fire fighter and pastor in a caring small-town community. He also has a loving family in his wife Sonja and two children Colton and Cassie. Like any idyllic family life though, he has been struck by grief, the most recent being the heartbreaking news that Colton must undergo immediate major surgery after collapsing on the brink of death. Afterwards, Colton reveals to his parents a series of revelations enough to shock the world. He recounts how he saw himself in hospital and describes the separate rooms his parents were waiting in, he reveals how he met his stillborn second sister and also accurately describes the grandfather he never met. Todd is convinced Colton has experienced a slice of the afterlife, but it's not enough to convince the sceptical town who are not ready to accept such a seemingly impossible truth.

Robin Williams Simon Baker Greg Kinnear

"Captain America" Trumps "Rio 2" At The Box Office, Superheroes And Religious Flicks Win The Game


Chris Evans Johnny Depp Greg Kinnear

Captain America: The Winter Soldier surprisingly came in first in the box office charts over Easter weekend, after toppling the predicted winner, Rio 2. This was Cap’s sixth outing and third weekend topping the chart. Starring Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson and Sebastian Stan, it made $26.2m (£15.5m), leaving the animated parrot love story in second place with $22,5 million, according to Box Office Mojo. Not a bad haul, but still not enough to topple the first Avenger. While The Winter Soldier and Rio 2 kept passing the ball around in the top spots, elsewhere in the chart things got a lot more interesting.

Chris Evans as Cap had the hearts and wallets of moviegoers once again.

Heaven is for Real, the story of a young boy who claims to have visited heaven during a near-death experience, came out of nowhere to take number 3 over Easter weekend. The Sony production opened on Wednesday with $3.7 million, earning another $3.3m on Thursday and now scored $21.5 million over the Fri-Sun period. The surprise surge likely had a lot to do with the themes of the film. Heaven is a family-friendly, religious film, which centers on a young boy, who claims to have seen heaven during a near-death experience. Releasing it over Easter weekend seems like an obvious choice, and it obviously worked. Heaven blasted straight through Transcendence’s $11 million.

Could Greg Kinnear's Drama 'Rake' Be The New 'House'?


Greg Kinnear Fox

Greg Kinnear plays a brilliant but flawed professional in Fox's new legal drama Rake, which is clearly the bones for any decent show ever made, ever. Brilliant but flawed works. It worked perfectly with Hugh Laurie and House, and that's what Fox appear to looking to replace with their latest effort.

Based on Peter Duncan's Australian show of the same name, Rake premiered in the U.S. on Thursday. It stars Kinnear as Keegan Deane, a brilliant attorney who can't keep his personal life on track. He's a gambling addict, a womanizer, an alcoholic.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Review


OK

It's been nearly 10 years since we first met Ron Burgundy, and this sequel is just as random and silly as expected. It's also more like a series of referential gags than an actual movie comedy, and as with the original film the best bits are knowing jabs at absurdities of the news media. This time we're in the 1980s, so there's plenty to make fun of here.

Over the past decade, Ron (Ferrell) has married Veronica (Applegate), and they've taken a joint anchor job in New York, where they live with their son (Nelson). But when Veronica lands a coveted network news job, Ron has a meltdown. Drunk and unemployed, he's approached to work on a new station: a 24-hour cable news channel. Even though he's sure this crazy idea will never catch on, Ron re-assembles his old team (swaggering reporter Rudd, dazed weatherman Carell and goofy sports guy Koechner) to beat handsome anchor Jack Lime (Marsden) in the ratings. And Ron's offbeat, populist approach changes the news forever.

This comical exploration of how TV news has shifted from hard reporting to shameless audience pandering gives the film a whiff of depth, which helps make the comical moments a lot funnier. The screenplay is a series of sketch-comedy episodes that don't quite hang together. For example, you could delete an extended sequence in which Ron goes blind, nurses a shark to health and sings a big musical number, and the movie wouldn't change at all. But all of these sequences have an absurd genius behind them that often gets us laughing, sometimes in disbelief.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues - Clips


The legend of San Diego's Channel 4 news team may have long since dissolved over the years, but anchors Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind are set to return as part of a brand new 24-hour news channel. In a bid to innovate newsreading and once again come out on top over Ron's wife and rival Veronica, they decide that they're going to give viewers the news they want to hear rather than what they need to. As usual, their antics involve the usual scandal and debauchery, putting their careers and tarnished reputations once again in the media's line of fire. No matter though, as these co-workers have each other's backs all the way.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues - International Trailer


The news used to be a noble profession before the likes of Ron Burgundy with his set of San Diego anchors Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind took over. Now it's all about scandal, debauchery and vulgarity and Burgundy and his team are fighting hard to keep it that way. As per usual, they manage to get themselves in all kinds of trouble involving drugs in the studio, completely inappropriate news headlines, accidental racism (not to mention homophobia) and, of course, getting laid, and it's all in a bid to remain on top of the media as Ron fights his own battle to professionally tower over his wife and rival Veronica.

'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' is the even more hilarious sequel to 2004's 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy'. There's definitely more laughs to be had from everyone's favourite news readers as Judd Apatow ('The 40 Year Old Virgin', 'Knocked Up', 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall') returns to produce it. Director Adam McKay ('Step Brothers', 'The Other Guys', 'Talladega Nights') is also back alongside his co-writer and star Will Ferrell. It is set to feature in cinemas just in time for Christmas, premiering in theatres everywhere on December 20th 2013.

Anchorman 2 Trailer


Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind have now hit the eighties and things are a little different. The legendary San Diego news anchors are now embarking on a different project, as part of a 24 hour news channel, but now they have fresh competition in the form of a young, handsome and well-dressed fellow anchor. Ron continues to put himself in sticky situations, this time involving some awkward racism with his new girlfriend's family during a social occasion among many other things. Will their antics extend beyond their previous capers involving angry bears and mean bikers?  Or will the eighties bring with it a more streetwise news bunch? We doubt the latter.

The sequel to 2004's 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy' is set to hit our screens soon entitled 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues'. We'll likely be seeing yet more hijinks from one of Hollywood's favourite comedy casts as they return following at massive $85 million gross from the original movie. Produced again by Judd Apatow ('The 40 Year Old Virgin', 'Knocked Up', 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall'), Adam McKay ('Step Brothers', 'The Other Guys', 'Talladega Nights') also makes a return as director and co-writer alongside Will Ferrell. It is scheduled for release in the UK on December 20th 2013.
