Page Legally Drops Her Father's Surname


Men In Black Rip Torn Geraldine Page

Men In Black star Rip Torn's actress daughter has dropped his name and adopted her mother's because she feels more connected to the late Geraldine Page.

Angelica Page was born a Torn but she has legally changed her name to honour her mum.

And she tells BlogTalkRadio.com, "As I get older I have more and more in common with my mother and less in common with the Torn side of the family.

"I'm the only daughter of my mother; I have twin brothers. My father has some other children from different marriages, so he's got a big gaggle and I just felt nobody was carrying my mother's name on and there were a lot of Torns.

Torn's Lawyers Negotiating Plea Bargain


Rip Torn

Veteran actor Rip Torn's lawyers are negotiating a plea deal with prosecutors to put an end to his legal woes after he was caught breaking into a Connecticut bank in January (10).

The Men In Black star was found sprawled on the floor of the Litchfield Bancorp building in his hometown of Salisbury late at night, clutching a loaded revolver while reportedly drunk. He told cops he thought the building was his home.

The 79 year old, real name Elmore Rual Torn, was arrested and charged with a string of offences, including carrying a pistol without a permit, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, first-degree burglary, first-degree criminal trespass and third-degree criminal mischief.

He checked himself into a rehabilitation facility in New York after being released on bail and pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.

Torn's Daughter Opens Up About His Alcohol Abuse


Rip Torn

Rip Torn's daughter has opened up about the actor's struggle with alcohol abuse, days after he was arrested for allegedly breaking into a Connecticut bank following a drinking binge.

The Men In Black star, real name Elmore Rual Torn, was detained after police allegedly found him sprawled out on the floor of the Litchfield Bancorp building clutching a loaded revolver.

Torn was charged with carrying a pistol without a permit, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, first-degree burglary, first-degree criminal trespass and third-degree criminal mischief, and was reportedly two-and-a-half times over the legal alcohol limit at the time of his arrest.

He appeared before a judge on Monday (01Feb10) and posted $100,000 (£62,500) bail, but did not enter a plea.

August Review


Grim
In Austin Chick's August, Josh Harnett is having a bad day. As pre-9/11 dot-com hotshot Tom Sterling, he's seen his parents and tech wonk brother treating him with contempt, the girl he's pining for giving him the brush-off, and his startup Internet company blowing up in his face. Drinking morosely at a bar (or as morosely as Hartnett can get) he lashes out at a fellow techie bandit who has just returned to the bar with a condemnatory, "Guys like you ain't got no vision, ain't got no passion, ain't got no soul." True enough. Tom is of course talking about himself but also, by extension, Hartnett's performance and Chick's film.

Chick's morality tale (a sort of insipid remake of Force of Evil except with techno sharks instead of gangsters) is all gloss and pizzazz but mostly pizz and no azz. August deals with two brothers, Tom and Josh (Adam Scott), who live large during the dot-com boom of '01, creating an in-the-moment start up called Landshark that is riding the top of the bubble with Joshua as the creative designer of the site and Tom as the obnoxious highfalutin promoter and resident SOB. Much like the World Wide Widget company in the satirical musical How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, there is no explanation given for what Landshark actually does; the company just is. But then it isn't. Soon after the opening credits and five months after its inception, the company is in the toilet and Tom is struggling to keep up the appearance of success for both the company and himself. But as in the Talking Heads song, they are both on the Road to Nowhere and somehow Tom has to come to grips with failure and regain his humanity, while looking out for his brother and his new family.

Freddy Got Fingered Review


Zero

Hey, you know what's funny? False accusations of child molestation. That's just the most hilarious way to get back at your father for being mean to you because you're a hopeless screw-up. At least, that's what Tom Green seems to think.

Green is that MTV personality who takes a video camera out into the world to record himself accosting embarrassed strangers and performing gross-out stunts for the amusement of easily entertained viewers. He wrote, directed and stars in "Freddy Got Fingered," a lose collection of sub-par Green gags orbiting around a 28-year-old unemployed nitwit whose dad (Rip Torn) hates him because, well, he's a worthless human being who goes out of his way to make Dad ashamed of him.

Aww, poor Tom. He's so misunderstood.

Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story Review


Unbearable

Can somebody please stop Ben Stiller?

Since becoming a box-office draw with "There's Something About Mary," the guy has been a horrendous ham, devouring scenery with an eye-bugging, eyebrow-stitching schtick so stale and predictable that his last dozen movies have all included the same gag: slow-motion scenes of Stiller madly mugging while dancing, or running, or playing the titular game of schoolyard pain and humiliation in "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story."

The only variation in his on-screen persona is that sometimes he's an irritatingly neurotic, hapless chump ("Along Came Polly," "Envy," "Meet the Parents") and other times he's an irritatingly arrogant, mock-sexy-pouting, self-obsessed moron ("Starsky & Hutch," "Zoolander").
