Tony Awards: Can Tom Hanks Complete Grand Slam of Major Awards?


Tom Hanks Tony Awards Nathan Lane Tom Sturridge Al Pacino

Tom Hanks has been nominated for a Tony Award for his role as late tabloid reporter Mike McAlary in Nora Ephron's Lucky Guy. The play, written by Ephron before she died last June, follows McAlary's life and career as he goes from ambitious reporter to Pulitzer Prize winning columnist. The play took six nominations in the announcement this week, including the big one - Best Play.

"She [Ephron] was nominated for a few other things throughout her career, but I think that because she was at heart perhaps the most quintessential of all New Yorkers," Hanks told the Wall Street Journal after the announcement "...to have this happen in the town that she viewed as her celestial home, that she would have probably been cowed into silence. Which would have been rare for Nora."

Hanks is one of the most decorated actors in the world, having won two Oscars for Best Actor for Philadelphia and Forrest Gump and Emmy Awards for his television series' Band of Brothers and The Pacific. Though the latter awards were for producing credits, Hanks still holds the statuettes and a Tony Award win would see him complete the 'grand slam' of awards. One man to have already achieved the same feat is Al Pacino, who won the Academy Award for Best Actor in 1992 for Scent of a Woman. He went on to win Tonys for Does A Tiger Wear A Necklace? and The Basic Training of Pavlo Hummel, later winning an Emmy for his role in the HBO movie You Don't Know Jack. Jeremy Irons, Liza Minnelli, Christopher Plummer, Vanessa Redgrave, Maggie Smith and Geoffrey Rush are others to have won an Oscar, Emmy and Tony award. Whoopi Goldberg has all three awards, PLUS a Grammy award.

Don't Write Off 'The Nance' As Broadway's Finest Of 2013


Nathan Lane Douglas Carter Beane

'The Producers' star Nathan Lane shines in Douglas Carter Beane's new play 'The Nance' set in the twilight of the burlesque era. The production opened at the Lyceum Theatre on Broadway on Monday night (April 15, 2013) to seemingly unanimous praise from even the most discerning of theatre critics.

Lane plays Chauncey Miles, a headline performer in New York burlesque, who also happens to be a homosexual. The show explores the difficulties of a homosexual man living and working in the secretive and dangerous gay world of the 1930s, which Lane appears to demonstrate with aplomb. "The Nance, a Lincoln Center Theater production directed by the estimable Jack O'Brien and featuring a fine supporting cast, is the most ambitious work to date from Mr. Beane," said the New York Times. The New York Daily News said, "Lane has won Tonys for musical star turns in "The Producers" and "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum." Under Jack O'Brien's assured direction, he's funny, sad and touching as the conflicted Chauncey."

The Huffington Post directed most of its praise at Lane's performance, saying, "As he's [Lane] previously demonstrated, he has the uncanny ability to make audiences laugh while tugging at their heartstrings - the gift indicating more than a spark of genius."

Mirror Mirror Review


OK
Both lavishly produced and light-hearted in tone, this fractured fairy tale aspires to be The Princess Bride, and actually gets it right from time to time.

While it's too uneven and corny to be a classic, it's still a lot of fun.

After the King disappears, his daughter Snow White (Collins) is raised by her conniving step-mother (Roberts), who plots with her right-hand man (Lane) to steal the kingdom from Snow. Then handsome Prince Alcott (Hammer) arrives and shakes things up, immediately falling for Snow, which sends the queen into even crazier fits of jealousy. She sends Snow into the woods to be eaten by a mythical beast, but Snow instead befriends a gang of dwarf bandits (Povinelli, Klebba, Saraceno, Prentice, Gnoffo and Woodburn), who teach her how to fight back.

Astro Boy Review


OK
Hong Kong-based animators give this Japanese manga a Hollywood spin using American voices and 3D-style animation to an eclectic, eccentric premise that wouldn't be out of place in a Studio Ghibli movie (see Spirited Away).

In the distant future, Metro City has broken away from the rubbish-strewn earth to float above it. Robots help in every part of life there, thanks to the inventive Dr Tenma (voiced by Cage), whose son Toby (Highmore) is also a science whiz. After Toby dies in an accident, Tenma rebuilds him as a robot with some extra features. The power-hungry General Stone (Sutherland) wants to get his hands on Toby's superpowers, but Toby escapes to the surface, where he's renamed Astro and must figure out his own destiny.

Swing Vote Review


Grim
Swing Vote arrives during one election cycle but heavily references another, spinning the hanging chad scandal of the 2000 presidential race into a formulaic feel-empowered comedy for today's huddled masses.

Bud (Kevin Costner) and Molly Johnson (gifted newcomer Madeline Carroll) assume Hollywood's textbook father-daughter duo: she's the pint-sized "adult" of the trailer they call home, and he's the whiny child. On the eve of a tight presidential race, a mix-up at the polls negates Bud's ballot, which doesn't sound like a big deal until it's determined that the election will come down to a photo finish decided by one vote -- Bud's. If you think that's even remotely possible, by all means, read on. As Bud gets a crash course in democracy from smarty-pants Molly, incumbent president Andrew Boone (Kelsey Grammer) and left-leaning White House hopeful Donald Greenleaf descend on Texico, New Mexico with glad-handlers in tow in hopes of winning the slob's valuable support.

Trumbo Review


Grim
As the poster child for the Hollywood Ten during the Anti-Communist hysteria of the late '40s/early '50s, one of the darkest and most unsavory moments in recent American history, screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo, Kitty Foyle, A Guy Named Joe) was a passionate, cranky, ill-tempered force of nature, the perfect foil for the mealy and mercenary denizens of the House Un-American Activities Committee. Thrown out of work, blacklisted (with scores of others), and jailed (Trumbo was Prisoner #7551), Trumbo burrowed into the Hollywood underground, continuing to write films under fronts and pseudonyms (Roman Holiday) and hatching a scheme to defeat Hollywood at its own game by toiling away as a script machine and working hard and fast with the idea of transforming blacklisted writers into becoming the most economically-desired writers in town simply by under-pricing the whitelisted writers, hoping to cause the blacklist to wither and die of its own weight. But an Oscar for The Brave One under a Trumbo pseudonym brought the whole stinking sham of the blacklist out in the open. Soon after, Trumbo became the first blacklisted screenwriter to have his name restored in the film credits (Spartacus, Exodus). But during Trumbo's exile and before his return to grace, he wrote lots of letters.

In Peter Askin's eponymous paean to Trumbo (based on son Christopher Trumbo's play, which starred Nathan Lane), Trumbo's prickly letters, mined from the 1940s to the 1960s (extracted from the published collection Additional Dialogue), are read by a legion of actors including Lane, Donald Sutherland, Michael Douglas, Josh Lucas, Liam Neeson, Brian Dennehy, David Strathairn, Joan Allen, and Paul Giamatti. Interspersed with the recitations are recollections from Trumbo's family, Christopher and daughter Mitzi, and supporters like Kirk Douglas, along with blurry film clips and extracts of interviews with Trumbo himself.

The Lion King 1 1/2 Review


Terrible
In typical Disney, fashion, a major hit is followed by a direct-to-video quickie release. Only here's the catch: The Lion King already had a Lion King 2. Figuring the whole Simba storyline was tapped out, Disney goes back to the well with a third film following the lovable supporting creatures, Timon (voiced by Nathan Lane) and Pumbaa (Ernie Sabella).

Why "1 1/2 " instead of a "3"? Because, quite literally, there's no sequel here at all. In fact, there's virtually no new material at all, and those expecting more of the same should steel themselves for exactly that: more of the same.
