Joseph Fiennes Michael Jackson Stockard Channing Brian Cox Elizabeth Taylor Marlon Brando

Joseph Fiennes has been cast as Michael Jackson in one of the most bizarre-sounding TV shows of all time. According to The Guardian, Fiennes will play the King of Pop in a one-off special for Sky Arts which dramatises a road trip he allegedly took alongside Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando, following 9/11.

Joseph FiennesJoseph Fiennes has been cast as Michael Jackson.

Details of the most unbelievable road trip of all time were first reported by Vanity Fair in 2011. According to the story, Jackson was playing two concerts at Madison Square Garden on September 7th and 10th and had invited two of his idols, Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor.

Sparkle Trailer


Sam (Shaun Evans) lives in Liverpool with his mum Jill (Lesley Manville), an aspiring singer. He dreams of moving to London and making his way in life. A chance meeting with Vince (Bob Hoskins) gives him the opportunity. Soon Sam has moved into Vince's spare flat in London - the only problem being that Jill insists on coming too. Through Vince he gets a job as a waiter and uses it to meet Sheila(Stockard Channing), a powerful woman who runs a PR company. Sam spots his chance - they start sleeping together, and she gives him a job. However life gets complicated when Sam meets a young woman, Kate (Amanda Ryan), and falls for her. He finds that his ambitions have been ambushed by love.

3 Needles Review


Very Good
It's exceedingly strange that 3 Needles, a lavish and dramatic film shot on three continents and starring a huge cast of A-listers has garnered almost no attention since it was first shown in 2005 and later had short releases in major cities in conjunction with World AIDS Day in 2006. Lucy Liu fans, why haven't you spoken up?

A collection of three short films connected only by their central theme that a lack of AIDS awareness around the world can lead to nothing but the most abject kinds of tragedy. Writer/director Thom Fitzgerald sets his short stories in China, Montreal, and South Africa, each outlining its own depressing reality.

The West Wing: Season Six Review


Good
The death of veteran actor John Spencer -- who played Chief of Staff Leo McGarry, the coolest head among the cast of The West Wing -- was sad news, and it was the final death knell for the once-popular NBC series, now finishing its seventh and final season. That's a shame, because in some ways the show is still getting better.

When creator Aaron Sorkin left The West Wing abruptly in 2003, many people wrote the show off. Sorkin imbued the show with his naïve left-liberal bias and scripted much of its glib dialogue, and his leaving seemed to guarantee an identity crisis. In fact, The West Wing was really nothing more than Sorkin's personal wish fulfillment: What if we elected a strongly moral liberal Democrat as president? Or to put it a different way, what if President Clinton (who was still president when the show started, in 1999) had been even more liberal, and not horny all the time? Sorkin's answer was Jed Bartlet, the imaginary president played by Martin Sheen. Bartlet is sort of a Ted Kennedy with gravitas -- a sententious, northeastern liberal Catholic who, because this is TV, is always right. (With John Kerry we actually had a chance to elect someone like Bartlet, minus the intellectual rigor, and not too surprisingly, the electorate didn't go nuts over him. Of course, Kerry was not as telegenic as Martin Sheen.)

Heartburn Review


Weak
The backstory of Heartburn is infinitely more interesting than its reality: Jack Nicholson took the role after shooting had begun, after Mandy Patinkin was fired for not being funny enough.

Strange then: Nicholson isn't funny at all, and only the quirky charms of Meryl Streep make Heartburn remotely palatable. Heartburn is Nora Ephron's first comedy, based on her novel of the same name -- a thinly veiled expose about her life with journalist Carl Bernstein. The film casts Streep as a New York food writer and Nicholson as a Washington columnist. They meet, fall in love, decide to marry, have kids. Unfortunately, Nicholson can't keep it in his pants -- and all manner of trouble ensues.

The Girl Most Likely To... Review


Good
Made for TV in 1973, right around the time the smoke was starting to clear from a nationwide wave of bra burnings, The Girl Must Likely To... is a deeply dark revenge comedy with a feminist agenda that's as relevant today as it was back in the day.

Co-written with acidic wit by Joan Rivers, the briskly paced telepic stars Stockard Channing as Miriam Knight, an overweight, frumpy, oh, alright, I'll say it... butt ugly college co-ed who schlumps around the campus hiding behind frizzy hair and baggy clothes. Everyone treats Miriam like dirt. The jocks tease her, the pretty girls avoid her, and the professors ignore her. Amazingly enough, Miriam is engaged, but even her plumber fiancé Harold (Warren Berlinger) mistreats her.

The First Wives Club Review


Very Good
The biggest crowd-pleaser of the year is upon us -- the powerhouse trio of Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, and Diane Keaton foisting their womanness on us with a vengeance. Sure to revive the debate over whether films like this are "man hating," The First Wives Club is, in reality, a harmless big screen sitcom that actually manages to appeal to a large audience.

Rambling through its first 30 minutes with no real direction, The First Wives Club eventually turns into a story about three old friends who want to exact vengeance on their wayward ex-husbands. Elise (Hawn) is an aging movie star, obsessed, as most aging movie stars are, about her looks. Brenda (Midler) is a bitter ex-housewife who loves her son and bemoans her lack of funds to support him -- and hasn't changed her hair since 1969. Annie (Keaton) is basically a middle-aged version of Annie Hall, only now she has a lesbian daughter and an intrusive mother, and Woody Allen is nowhere to be seen.

Anything Else Review


Good
You can judge the current state of Woody Allen in the cinematic world by the fact that the advertising for his newest film, Anything Else, doesn't even mention his name. For all intents and purposes, it looks like a wee little romantic comedy starring Jason Biggs and Christina Ricci, the kind of thing that comes and goes from the multiplex in about three weeks and lives forever after on a Blockbuster shelf with Maid in Manhattan and Two Weeks Notice. On the poster, Ricci's face is in a big heart and the title is written in pink. It's a sneaky piece of subterfuge that might just allow Allen to do something he hasn't been able to for quite some time: connect with a younger audience.

The big schlemiel at the heart of the movie is actually not Allen, it's Biggs, who plays Jerry Falk, a young comedy writer with a chronic inability to say no to anybody: not his useless shrink or his clinging, laughable manager (Danny DeVito), and especially not his neurotic (on a good day) girlfriend, Amanda (Ricci). Falk's best friend is another comedy writer, David Dobel (Allen), who has all the usual Allen characteristics, but seems to have been taking steroids for his paranoia and misanthropy.

Where The Heart Is Review


Weak

Cast anyone but actress savant Natalie Portman as the pregnant, white trash teenager axis of "Where the Heart Is," and this warm-fuzzy soap opera of stock crises and Hallmark card moments would be pretty close to insufferable.

Propelled to the big screen only on the momentum of the novel's Oprah Winfrey book club endorsement, even with Portman -- who by carrying this movie proves absolutely her astounding talent -- in the lead, this low-impact unwed motherhood epic never gets any deeper than a pebble skipping across a pond.

That pebble is Novalee Nation (Portman), a near-illiterate 17-year-old abandon in the parking lot of a Sequoyah, Oklahoma, WalMart by her rat bastard boyfriend when they were supposed to be moving to California together in his $80 car.
