Actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan Played A Prank On Spanish Star Javier Bardem After Photographers Confused The Two Actors On The Red Carpet.
The Watchmen star has become known as Bardem's Hollywood doppelganger over the years as he is often mistaken for the Oscar winner, and Morgan has revealed he once got the No Country For Old Men star into trouble.
Morgan flipped his middle finger to snappers at a red carpet event after they called him 'Javier', and Bardem was blamed for the bad behaviour.
"I get (mistaken for) Javier Bardem a lot," Morgan admits during an appearance on U.S. chat show The Talk. "When he won his Oscar, I had just gotten on Grey's Anatomy about the same time. I went to a party here in New York, and as I was walking the red carpet, the paparazzi just started screaming, 'Javier, Javier!'. And I flipped them off... I was trying to be funny - I don't know if it was construed as funny. But the next day in the New York Daily News or whatever, there was a picture of me flipping the camera off and it said, 'Javier is an a**hole!'"
Actors Jeffrey Dean Morgan And Paul Rudd Have Taken Over A Candy Store In Upstate New York.
The Watchmen star and his actress wife Hilarie Burton live on a farm in Rhinebeck, New York, and Jeffrey now runs his favourite shop in the town after vowing to keep it going following the owner's death.
"When we first moved to a little town called Rhinebeck, the first place I ever visited was this little candy store called Samuel's," he tells U.S. chat show The Talk. "A guy named Ira owned it and he became a very good friend. I used to see him every day and have my coffee and he passed away tragically. I was off doing a movie and he passed and we didn't want the candy store to leave or turn into something else.
"Myself and Paul Rudd and our friend Andy and our spouses, we were having dinner one night and I looked at my friends and I was like, 'Why don't we step in and keep Ira's legacy alive?' And we did."

What happens when two superheroes with vastly differing opinions come head to head? Well, not very well if Lex Luthor has anything to do with it. Superman believes Batman is a vigilante and the civil liberties of the people of Gotham are 'being trampled on' whilst Batman feels Superman's abilities are blown out of proportion by the media and is far from a fan of his superhero outfit.
Lex Luthor has enough power to manipulate this situation to his benefit and pitches both heroes against one another - Son of Krypton versus Bat of Gotham however, when his plan doesn't go exactly to plan he creates a monster to destroy both men - on the verge of destruction, Batman and Superman are joined by Wonder Woman, Aquaman and other superheroes on their quest to save their city from destruction.
Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is directed by Zack Snyder and it's a precursor to The Justice League films - which are also written and directed by Snyder.

Actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan Has Been Turned Off Eating Canned Tuna For Life After Surviving On One Tin A Day As He Portrayed An Historic American Frontiersman Suffering From Tuberculosis For A New Tv Mini-series.
The Watchmen star plays Erastus 'Deaf' Smith in new historical drama series Texas Rising, about the Texas Revolution against Mexico in the 1830s, and the actor had to lose a little weight to effectively portray a man sick with a lifelong tubercular illness.
Producers suggested Morgan lose around 10 pounds (4.5 kilograms) for the role, but he decided to take the weightloss further, shedding more than 40 pounds (18 kilograms) so it would be clear to viewers that his character was seriously ill.
He tells U.S. breakfast show Today, "He (Smith) had a consumption of tuberculosis, and so I got there (on set) and I was probably about 175. I left and I was about 130."

Just when you thought no one could come up with a fresh take on the Western, the Danes arrive with this astonishingly earthy and inventive film, shot in South Africa no less. Director Kristian Levring uses all of the usual elements without ever resorting to cliches, which makes the film strikingly involving. Not only are the characters people we can identify with, but their moral dilemmas are strikingly provocative. Especially as the violence escalates.
The story opens in 1871, as Danish immigrant Jon (Mads Mikkelsen) welcomes his wife (Nanna Oland Fabricius) and young son to the American prairie where he has worked for seven years. But on the way home from the station, they are ambushed by outlaws. After a desperate struggle, Jon manages to kill them, but this puts him on the wrong side of the local boss Delarue (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), who enforces cooperation from the town's mayor-undertaker (Jonathan Pryce) and sheriff-priest (Douglas Hensall). So aside from his brother Peter (Mikael Persbrandt), Jon has nowhere to turn. His only hope of justice is to deliver it himself.
Adding an intriguing layer is the fact that Jon and Peter are veterans of Denmark's civil war, just as the locals are survivors of America's. So everyone has war in their blood. The Danish brothers have vowed to turn their backs on violence and build a lawful society, so the flurry of clashes, kidnappings and killings with Delarue's goons (including Eric Cantona) are tinged with regretfulness. And the script never lets the audience off lightly: in the Wild West, no one is safe. Civilisation has only begun to arrive in this isolated place, but the discovery of oil has replaced old world values with pure, unfiltered greed. Yes, there's a lot more going on here than the usual swaggering Western machismo. And the casting has as much to do with that as the script.
