Guy Pearce Was Almost Too Hot To Get Hired


Guy Pearce Stephan Elliott Russell Crowe Kevin Spacey Cobie Smulders

Of all the possible reasons why an actor might receive a "no" when auditioning for a part in the cut-throat world of movies, being "too handsome" must rank among the best of them. But that's exactly the fate that almost befell Guy Pearce before he won the part of Adam Whitely/Felicia Jollygoodfellow in The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

Director Stephan Elliott recently told The Herald Sun that he had reservations about Pearce starring in the 1994 comedy-drama, which follows the adventures of three drag queens, because the young Guy was just so darn good looking:

Chill Out Guys: Netflix Ain't Getting Adverts, Yet


Kevin Spacey

It's no secret that Netflix is experimenting with advertising on its service, though rumors on the internet this week that users will now be met with pre-roll and post-roll advertisements when watching House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, et al, appeared to be severely exaggerated.

Netflix

Some analysts have pushed the company to introduce lucrative ads, though in a statement to Mashable this week, the streaming service played down the prospect.

Stars from throughout the world of theatre came together to praise Kevin Spacey as he stepped down as artistic director of London’s The Old Vic after more than a decade in the role.

In an event hosted by ‘Downton Abbey’ star Hugh Bonneville, the likes of Elizabeth McGovern, Jeremy Irons and Eddie Izzard paid tribute to Spacey’s contributions to reviving the fortunes of the Old Vic, at which he took the reins in 2003.

Everything Is Ten Times More Stressful In The New "House Of Cards Trailer"


Kevin Spacey Netflix

Attention: there’s a new trailer out for House of Cards Season 3. As such, we must observe and discuss. The clip is a rather stress-inducing piece of promo, with an industrial musical theme vaguely reminiscent of early Nine Inch Nails playing in the background as the drama unfolds.

The “drama” in this case is the Underwoods trying to run a country as the newly appointed POTUS and FLOTUS, while their world crumbles around them like... almost like a house of cards or something.

Horrible Bosses 2 Review


OK

Like The Hangover, Horrible Bosses was a movie no one really wanted to see a sequel to, but here it is anyway: the same film, but even more inane. It is also likely to make plenty of money from audiences looking for mindless entertainment on a Saturday night. Although "mindless" seems almost complimentary when a movie is as idiotic as this one is. There's so little to its plot that the whole film seems to evaporate before the end of the climactic chase scene.

It's been a couple of years since Nick, Kurt and Dale (Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day) tried to solve their problems by trying to kill their bosses. Instead, they've become inventors, and have just sold their Shower Buddy to a popular catalogue company owned by Bert (Christoph Waltz). They go all out to fill his order, putting their necks on the line, and Bert leaves them hanging there. Faced with the prospect of losing everything, they again consult their criminal pal Jones (Jamie Foxx), who helps them launch a "kidnaping". The idea is to grab Bert's son Rex (Chris Pine) and demand a ransom to cover their debts. But Rex takes over the operation, asking for a lot more cash and causing a lot more chaos. They also run into a couple of their old bosses: sex-crazed Julia (Jennifer Aniston) is still determined to sleep with Dale, while Harken (Kevin Spacey) can still freak them out from behind bars.

Director-writer Anders and cowriter Morris use almost the exact same formula this time, going for laughs in a carefully plotted caper in which everything that can go wrong does. Although instead of merely being inept, these people are all morons. Bateman's Nick is essentially the straight man in the movie, and even he fails to notice that they've borrowed and spent a vast sum of cash without even a simple contract with Bert. Meanwhile, Kurt and Dale are mind-achingly stupid, bungling every single moment so completely that it's hard to see them as functioning adults. Pine isn't much better, but at least we haven't seen this schtick from him before, and he's rather good at it.

In the wake of their struggle to murder their bosses in the first film, 'Horrible Bosses 2' sees Nick (Jason Bateman), Dale (Charlie Day) and Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) attempting to set up their own company. When a rival investor (Christoph Waltz) tries to put them out of business, they put their previous criminal past to use and kidnap the investor's son, Rex (Chris Pine), in an attempt to blackmail him. Rex is impressed by their plan, and decides to help them scam his father, while steadily escalating the severity of their crime. As Rex continues to drag the three friends into a battle with his father, they find themselves crossing paths with Detective Hatcher (Jonathan Banks) and Dr. Julia Harris (Jennifer Anniston), one of the previous film's horrible bosses.

Despite Emmy Snub, The Future Is Bright For Netflix (Starting With Gervais Ad)


Ricky Gervais Kevin Spacey Netflix

Netflix probably didn't have any deserved winners of major Emmy awards on Monday night (August 25, 2014). 'House of Cards' - which is fast becoming pure, unadulterated fun more than anything else - was never going to beat 'Breaking Bad' in the outstanding drama category and although 'Modern Family' was the surprise winner of best comedy, 'Orange is the New Black' still had to beat the far superior 'Veep'. Still, it must have felt like two steps back for executives at the streaming service, which has poured cash into quality original content in recent years.

House of CardsKevin Spacey [L] and Robin Wright [R] in 'House of Cards'

Nevertheless, the future is bright for Netflix and a glossy new ad featuring Ricky Gervais confirms just how far the service has grown to effectively become ingrained in modern culture. The clip opens with Gervais lounging around in front of the television, musing, "You know when you're watching your favorite Netflix show and after five straight episodes, you want to be in it?"

'Horrible Bosses 2' Trailer: The Scheming Trio Are Back For Number Two (Poop Jokes Included)


Jennifer Aniston Jason Bateman Jason Sudeikis Charlie Day Kevin Spacey Christoph Waltz Chris Pine Jamie Foxx

The trailer has been released for the upcoming comedy sequel, Horrible Bosses 2, giving us our first glimpse of the follow-up to the successful and hilarious 2011 movie. Number two (yes, there are poop jokes in the movie) sees Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day reprise their roles as the unhappy workers who find themselves in even more of a pickle than before.

After having tried to murder their respective bosses in the previous film, Nick, Dale and Kurt are now under three new bosses who are all as equally mean or deranged. The trio decide that they'll start their own business so that they don't have to take orders from superiors ever again.

The new film welcomes Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine but of course, we'll be seeing some familiar faces, such as Kevin Spacey, Jennifer, and Jamie Foxx return in the sequel.

Having previously got involved with a scheme to kill their abusive bosses (a plan which didn't go exactly as they thought), Nick, Dale and Kurt think they can do anything. Now under three new bosses that are equally mean, they decide that they want to start up their own business so that they don't have to take orders from superiors ever again. Everything seems to be in place until a cunning investor forces them to lose control of their entrepreneurial plans. With no legal standing and no money, the trio turn to their trusty crime consultant who suggests they start to be a little more ruthless if they want to pull off their latest scheme; to kidnap the investor's son and hold him for ransom. Nick, Dale and Kurt are hoping that everything will go to plan this time - but that's looking unlikely.

Here's Why Kevin Spacey Absolutely MUST Be The Next Bond Villain


Kevin Spacey Sam Mendes

Kevin Spacey fans were sincerely disappointed to hear that the actor wouldn’t be appearing as the villain in the next James Bond movie, which is due to be released in 2015. Spacey explained to BBC news: “I don’t know why people keep writing about this. I’ve been offered no role, I’ve never read a script, no, I am not doing the next James Bond movie.” He added, “I don’t know who started the rumour but stop it.”

Kevin Spacey Bond Villain Kevin Spacey has denied rumours that he will be playing the next Bond villain

Well, actually, it seems as though he started the rumour himself, back in 2012. When it was suggested that he would be up for the role of Bond villain, he told the Evening Standard: “I would hope [Bond producers] the Broccolis agree [that I would make a good Bond villain] and that Sam [Mendes] is going to do the next one. That would be a lot of fun. I adore him. I had some of the most seminal experiences of my career with him, both a decade ago with American Beauty and last year with Richard III.”

Kevin Spacey has a new party trick, he does impressions of his indefatigable, uncompromising and rutless character on 'House of Cards,' Frank Underwood who – and look away if you don’t want to know what happens – becomes President of The United states via a regimented diet of backstabbing, conniving plans, murder and weird threesomes.

He gave us a little bit of Underwood when he came out to introduce the honorary Oscars back in March, and now India – and more specifically, its House of Cards fans - have been subject to a slice of the politician, but this time it’s far less colloquial.

Mindy Kaling And The Stupidest Red Carpet Questions, Ever


Mindy Kaling Kevin Spacey Woody Allen

“Who are you wearing?”, “Are you excited to be here?”, “Do you want to win?” are just a few of the inane questions that get yelled at the stars as they walk down the red carpet. But every now and then a question gets asked that is so mind-blowingly idiotic, or eyebrow-raisingly nonsensical that you just have to ask, how are these people allowed within 100 feet of celebrities? And more to the point, who thought it was a good idea to give them a microphone and put them on the television? Usually the answer is E! news.

mindy kaling red carpet Mindy was asked to specify what race she found attractive

For instance, E! news correspondent Alicia Quarles recently asked The Mindy Project star Mindy Kaling what race of guys she likes. Yes, you read that right. “Who’s your type?” she asked Kaling, who seemed confused by the question. “Good looking?”, Kaling responded with the quizzical intonation of someone who is confounded. This wasn’t enough for Quarles though, who continued “So, any colour?”. It’s more than a little intrusive to begin with to ask the star what kind of men she likes, but to demand a race be included in her bizarre interrogation is just too much.

Obama Watches 'House Of Cards' And 'True Detective', Think About What That Means.


Barack Obama Kevin Spacey

Barack Obama’s inauguration as the 44th President of The United States of America was a tremendous stepping-stone for the western world; a black man in charge of the free world - it was exhilarating. His reputation hasn’t remained entirely unblemished, though, and with a string of political controversies plaguing his tenure at the oval office, opinion isn’t so rosy any more.

ObamaObama is really into his highly rated TV

One of Obama’s integral selling points to voters is his communication with young people. He was supported by the likes of Matt Damon and Jay-Z in his election campaign back in 2008, and before his win in 2009 to become America’s first black president, the youth were firmly behind him.

All of this; everything I’ve just said, means nothing because Barack Obama watches 'House of Cards' and 'True Detective' – my two favourite things at the moment. Just think – for a second – think about what that means.

It means someone, somewhere, sorted out a Netflix account for Mr. Obama

There’s no way Obama logged on to Netflix, typed his card details and started a free one-month trial with Netflix. Some spotty assistant did it, and knows the details. They’re probably admin@thewhitehouse.com, and the password is probably democraticz. Just imagine that.

It means Obama watches Kevin Spacey manipulate the political landscape, and finds it entertaining

Obama loves House of Cards. He Tweeted out telling people not to spoil it as Netflix put whole seasons of their original content at once. We’re obviously choosing to ignore the fact that Obama probably did this as a publicity stunt to maintain the vote of the youth – old people don’t even know what House of Cards is, so ignore it and assume he’s talking about a book.

'House Of Cards' Season 2 Opens With A Shocking Death As Frank Celebrates His Birthday


Kevin Spacey Robin Wright Kate Mara Molly Parker Sandrine Holt Sebastian Arcelus

The opening episode of House of Cards season 2 will definitely go down as one of the most shocking in television history: one of the main characters has been brutally killed off; Claire is desperate for a baby; and Frank celebrates a subdued birthday. If you haven't seen it yet, stop reading now! Spoilers included!

Kevin Spacey

Frank's usual narrative directly to the camera only begins in the last minute and he leaves the audience with a menacing "Welcome Back."
