Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin do a hilarious autocomplete interview.
Morgan Freeman was joined by his 'Going In Style' co-stars Michael Caine and Alan Arkin for a legendary edition of the autocomplete interview, where they divulged some little known facts about themselves based on the most searched questions on the internet.

Google browsers sure do have some strange queries about these veteran stars, but the stories that they have regarding them are even weirder. The trio star in a new comedy from Zach Braff, which is in theatres this week.
There comes a point in life where you get to a certain age and realise that right and wrong no longer means anything. Being a law-abiding citizen sure doesn't guarantee you comfort or security, so when Willie (Morgan Freeman), Joe (Michael Caine) and Albert (Alan Arkin) find they have had their pension payments cut off, they really have nothing else to lose. When Joe visits the bank to have a meeting about his mortgage repayments, he witnesses a professional bank robbery and is so impressed by the organisation of it that he decides enough is enough; he wants to get in on that kind of action himself. So these three long-time buddies band together to pull off the ultimate theft of the bank that is systematically destroying the lives of hard-working citizens, get their money back and give the rest to charity.

Zach Braff’s character in Scrubs was an emotionally tender, physically fragile and essentially harmless person. And one gets the feeling his perennial bully, Dr. Cox, would till have plenty to say about his character in “Wish I Was Here”.

Yes, Braff and his brand of feels is back in this, the long-awaited follow up to his hyper-emotional, indie-fest, “Garden State,” which every 14-year-old girl or boy not into sports claimed was their favourite movie for at least 18 months. We’re not making that up; there were science studies.

The film is given a raunchy Broadway makeover.
The reviews are in for Woody Allen's eagerly-awaited musicalisation of the hit screen comedy Bullets Over Broadway, starring Zack Braff ('Scrubs', Nick Valenti ('The Sopranos') and Helene Yorke ('Masters of Sex'). Braff plays a struggling playwright whose big break gets him entangled with gangsters in Prohibition-era New York. Cue explosive dance routines, dark humour and dazzling costumes from director-choreographer Susan Stroman's lavish production.
Zach Braff Leads The Way In The Dazzling 'Bullets Over Broadway.'
The production is fairly unusual in that it relies upon existing period music, rather than an original score. Unfortunately critics don't seem to have been able to look beyond the disparity between certain scenes and the corresponding musical numbers. "The problem is that most of the songs are inorganic to the plot and characters," says THR's David Rooney, explaining "They seem dictated by the energy requirements of only moderately funny material."
Wayne Knight isn't the only celebrity to be at the center of a death hoax, these other celebrities have also been victims to social media's cruelest rumor.
Seinfeld fans can breathe easy after panic ensued following rumors of Wayne Knight’s death on social media site Twitter. The rumors claimed that the 58 year old had been involved in a fatal car crash, although Knight took the site himself to straighten things out, “Some of you will be glad to hear this, others strangely disappointed, but...I am alive and well!” before commenting, “Does someone have to DIE to trend? Geez! Thanks for all the love everybody. I didn’t know you cared. Glad to be breathing!”
Wayne Knight took to Twitter to explain he isn't dead
We’re glad that Wayne was able to see the funny side of his death hoax, we guess that he is a comedian, so we'd be worried if he didn't! We wonder if these other celebs took their own death hoaxes so lightly.

Ten years after the premiere of 'Garden State', Zach Braff is releasing a film of a similar tone, 'Wish I Was Here'.
Zach and Kate Hudson film 'Wish I Was Here'
The 'Scrubs' star's crowd-funded movie project has now been unveiled in all its glory and is set to make another smash after the incredible success of 'Garden State' in 2004 which grossed $35 million worldwide from a $2.5 million budget. 'Wish I Was Here' is not a sequel, but it does draw on similar themes including parental death and feelings of desperation and being lost in particular stages of your life.
The actress spoke with reporters following the film's Sundance premiere
Zach Braff returned to the director's chair with Wish I Was Here, as the Scrubs star finally followed up his cult favourite Garden State. The film premiered at Sundance Film Festival this week to almost unanimous praise (it currently holds a 9.5 rating on IMdB), with Braff and co-stars Kate Hudson, Josh Gad and Mandy Patinkin sitting down with The Hollywood Reporter to discuss the film before the premiere.

Whilst Braff discussed the freedom of working independently, having the bulk of production costs paid for through crowd funding via Kickstarter, it was Hudson who seemed the most overwhelmed with the movie as she explained the emotional connection she felt towards the film and not just because she and Braff had wanted to make a film together for some time.
The eager boyfriend contacted Braff after pledging to his Kickstater.
Seems like if you’re going to propose these days, you might as well make a viral video out of it, which is exactly what Matt Hulbert did, when he called on Zach Braff to be his wingman. The groom-to-be (you didn’t think he’d get rejected, did you?) enlisted the help of the Scrubs star through the Kickstarter campaign for Braff’s new movie, the Garden State sequel (sort of), Wish I Was Here.
The Scrubs star makes a pretty good wingman.
The scheme is pretty simple – Braff appears on screen, says hi to Matt and Janice (the lucky lady) and pops the question on Hulbert’s behalf, before introducing a montage of people and pets with signs, urging the woman to “say yes.” Now that might be a little too much pressure for some people’s tastes, but the future Mrs Hulbert was over the moon. You can tell, too, since there’s a little screen at the bottom of the video, showing her reactions throughout. It only adds to the warm fuzzies of the video, since we get to see Janice tearing up as the video goes on.

Zach Braff has been in cast in Woody Allen's 'Bullets Over Broadway'. The play, opening later this year, will be the first time the actor has appeared on Broadway.
Zach Braff has been cast in a Broadway adaptation of Woody Allen's Bullets Over Broadway. Set in the 1920's, an apparently fashionable time if popular culture's current obsession with The Great Gatsby and the most recent series of Downton Abbey is anything to go by, the plot centres around a struggling playwright's dealing with the mob.

The 1994 film of Bullets Over Broadway saw struggling playwright David (played by John Cusack) forced to choose a talentless actress to star in his play. The actress is the girlfriend of a mobster who has offered, in exchange for her opportunity to tread the boards, to finance David's play.

127 Hours' James Franco has taken to crowdsourcing website, Indiegogo, to raise funds to bring his 'Palo Alto: Stories' novel to life on the big screen.
Actor James Franco is following in the footsteps of Zach Braff and turning to alternative methods of sourcing money to create films, hoping to raise $500,000 (£319,900) to fund the transformation of his short story collection, Palo Alto, into films.
Speaking in the video posted on his Indiegogo page, Franco is shown touring around his home town in California and explaining his vision for the movies: "Although it's a book of fiction it's inspired by experiences I had growing up here, the things that people I knew went through", adding it was a book about being a teenager, coming of age, and learning about the world.
Franco is inviting his fans to "join this adventure" by donating a sum of money to his cause, with extra incentives thrown in for higher donations.

This guy's got money, so what's going on?
When Zack Braff’s Kickstarter project surpassed its $2m target (with 26 days to spare, may we add) the overwhelming response was ‘awww’ and ‘well done’. But aren’t we ignoring the fact he’s a multi-millionaire?
Scrubs wasn’t a two-season show; it ran and ran to a phenomenal nine seasons, and you can pretty much guarantee he got paid exponentially for those seasons (apart from maybe the ninth, which was weird and on a different channel) I digress. Zach Braff has loads of money, so why exactly is he getting us to pay for his movie? Well, he says ‘the money people’ want control over the final cut, and make decisions that are derivative to his artistic vision. That’s fair enough, but it doesn’t change the fact that he could just fund it. He might say it’s a way for fans to get involved, and cite the fact that funders get unique opportunities to be a part of the film’s history on different levels based on their contribution. Fine. But he could still stump up $2m of his own money, and still get fans to do stuff.
Use your own cash! Braff
First Veronica Mars, now Zach Braff's flick - Hollywood might finally be awaking to the power of the internet.
In news that has opinions strongly divided, Zach Braff is making a movie and using Kickstarter to fund it. After the phenomenal success of the Veronica Mars kickstarter, which raised $2 million on its second day and $5 million by the end, it was pretty clear that others were going to jump on the bandwagon, with his sort-of sequel to Garden State, Wish I Was Here.
But there are obvious differences between the sitch with VM and that of Braff’s movie. See, while Veronica Mars was a little known cult show, much beloved by its fans, but otherwise ignored, Braff’s project had reportedly already been offered the funding. The only reason the Scrubs actor chose to publicly fund Wish I Was Here was so that he could keep full creative control. Some, like Celebuzz’s Robert Kessler have called it a vanity project. And indeed, it can undoubtedly be called that.
But on the flipside of that coin, if the public really want to see a film made, and the public decide to spend a tenner of their own money to make sure that happens, where’s the harm? If anything, it’s a more democratic way of deciding which pieces of media deserve to be made and which don’t. Whether Wish I Was Here, the tale of the struggles of a mid-30s white dude fits into the first category or the second, remains to be seen.
Like Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, this film shows the overpowering strength of Disney and producer Joe Roth, as they once again bury a gifted filmmaker and cast in an effects extravaganza that's strong on visuals but short on story. There are glimpses of Raimi's genius here and there, most notably in his eye-catching use of 3D. And the actors manage to inject a bit of spark into their family-friendly characters. But the plot and the relentlessly simplistic tone will only please children or undemanding adults.
At least it looks amazing. And like the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz, the film opens in black and white with a Kansas-set prologue, where the womanising conman Oscar (Franco) performs as the flashy magician Oz. Chased into a hot-air balloon by an angry husband, he is engulfed by a tornado and drops into the colourful land of Oz, where people are looking for a messianic wizard named Oz to save them from the witch who murdered their king. But which witch is the wicked one? Oscar first meets the naive Theodora (Kunis), who hasn't yet decided if she'll be evil or not, then her big sister Evanora (Weisz), the steely interim ruler, and then the too-good Glinda (Williams). And even though he's not a real wizard, he might have some tricks up his sleeve that can help.
The film mixes ideas from L Frank Baum's stories with references to the iconic 1939 film, plus much more epic landscapes of Oz recreated with eye-popping digital trickery. On the other hand, the plot is formulaic and predictable, with characters who are only superficially complex and are far too obvious in the way they interact, badly underestimating the sophistication of even very young children in the audience. But the real problem is that the film is focussed on visual spectacle rather than endearing characters. The sidekicks this time are a slightly creepy-looking flying monkey (Braff) and a feisty china doll (King), both rendered with elaborate motion-capture effects that never quite seem to be there on the set with the actors.

Scrubs actor Donald Faison married his fiancee CaCee Cobb in Los Angeles on Saturday (December 15, 2012), with Zach Braff and Jessica Simpson walking down the aisle together too! Simpson served as bridesmaid for the lavish nuptials, while Faison's Scrubs co-star Braff acted as groomsman.
The wedding - held under a tent filed with white twinkle lights - was a predictably Hollywood affair, with an A-list guest-list, sharply dressed guests and plenty of flowers. Simpson - who is yet to confirm that his pregnant with her second child - wore a flowing black dress as she walked arm-in-arm with Braff. "I was the maid of honor last night for my BF?@caceecobb. She was the most beautiful bride I have ever seen in my life!" Simpson tweeted after the ceremony, along with a photograph of herself strategically hiding her stomach with a bouquet of flowers. Hmmm.
Faison and Cobb got engaged in August 2011, with Faison tweeting, "If you like it then you better put a Ring on it," and Cobb replying, "If she likes it then she better say YES!!" It's the first marriage for Cobb, though Faison was previously married to Lisa Askey, with whom he has three children. He also has a son from a previous relationship.

The Scrubs star and his long time girlfriend/fiancé exchanged vows in front of a small crowd of around 75 friends and relativeson Saturday (Dec 15) at at his Scrubs co-star's home. Jessica Simpson, a close friend or Cobb, served as one of the bridesmaids, whilst Braff and singer Josh Radin were the famous groomsmen for the occasion. Jessica's sister, Ashlee, was also in attendance at the celebration.
Radin tweeted "What a happy day," along with a picture of him, Braff and the groom during the ceremony, which according to E! Online was 20-minute long and took place under a tent with white-twinkling lights and a gospel choir, with plenty of laughter added for good measure.

Oscar Diggs is a magician in a circus in Kansas who has about as much moral fibre as he has accomplishments to his name; that being none whatsoever. However, all that changes when he is magically transported to the land of Oz after his hot air balloon gets caught in a ferocious storm. He is about to have his ethics and his trickery put to the test after initially seeing the colourful and sparkling new world as a way of gaining the fortune he so longs for. Things change when he meets three beautiful witches Theodora, Evanora and Glinda who doubt his so-called magical powers are genuine but do believe he could still be great and powerful like the rest of Oz believe him to be if he saved the land from the wicked witch and became the righteous man he truly ought to be.
This vibrant Disney adventure has been adapted by director Sam Raimi ('The Evil Dead', the 'Spider-Man' trilogy) and screenwriters Mitchell Kapner ('Romeo Must Die', 'The Whole Ten Yards') and David Lindsay-Abaire ('Robots', 'Inkheart', 'Rise of the Guardians'). It has been based on the 1900 novel 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz' by L. Frank Baum and serves as the prequel to the 1939 movie 'The Wizard of Oz'. Due for release on March 8th 2013.
Directed by: Sam Raimi

The catchy pop ballads found on the soundtrack for Tony Goldwyn's The Last Kiss will break your heart in two. The movie these songs support only wishes it could make such a claim.
Back to the music for a minute. Coldplay, Cary Brothers, Fiona Apple, Snow Patrol, and a smattering of other fashionable artists - each handpicked by leading man Zach Braff - croon (and sometimes whine) about infidelity, loss, and life-changing mistakes that target the love of your life. Sample lyrics include, "She's moving on... without you." Sentiments rarely deviate from this norm. It's a nice place to wallow on a rainy afternoon.
Braff worked similar musical magic for his directorial debut Garden State. His ear for stirring, soulful melodies earned him a Best Compilation Soundtrack for a Motion Picture Grammy award. But where Braff's Garden mix tape enhanced his quirky and personal little comedy, this new song collection can't lift Goldwyn's somber material from the doldrums.
