"Double Jeopardy is my jam!!! I ain't mad at cha, Miss Ashley! " - Dorian

"Ashley reminds me of Ida Lupino, who in the '40s had a lot of talent but was undervalued because of her association with genre potboilers." -Brookesboy

Today's links.

  • Towleroad Sean Penn to receive the Stanley Kramer (and other movie news)
  • Playbill Olympia Dukakis will star in the little seen Tennessee Williams' play The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore starting tomorrow off Broadway. D'ya think the title inspired Martin Scorsese back in the day?
  • Serious Film takes a long predictive look at the eventual Oscar Supporting Actress lineup, the 7 top contenders and some more still.
  • MNPP's wishin' and hopin' for Eastern Promises 2
  • Movie|Line the most scathing reviews of new wide release Season of the Witch
  • Just Jared Kristin Chenoweth is out and about, a free woman. Now that she's done with Broadway's high-grossing Promises Promises, can we please get her into a movie musical? C'mon Hollywood. You're so lame. Make more musicals. OBEY.
  • AV Club a sequel of sorts (more like a spin-off) to Knocked Up centering on Paul Rudd & Leslie Mann's married couple? For sure count us in. They made a great comic pair. 
  • THR the recipients of Oscar's technical achievement awards (which we be handed out on February 12th)


A few more... I can't stop.

  • Chateau Thombeau It Happened... an 82 flashback. (I'm on a Tootsie kick cuz of that Dustin Hoffman griping over in new Best Pics episode.)
  • In Contention party for The Social Network's dvd.
  • Cinema Blend Vera Farmiga and Elle Fanning to star as mother and daughter in indie drama Pure Life
  • China Lion is new distribution company that will hopefully make more Asian films available in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the US of A. I think you should know that the Chinese remake of American blockbuster What Women Want (pictured right) is opening in 2011. Why do we care? Because it's Gong Li and Andy Lau and not Helen Hunt and Mel Gibson, that's why!

And people criticize the U.S. for foreign remakes. At least we pick movies that were good to start with. Unless the idea behind the "What Women Want" remake is that there's nowhere to go but up?

All I know is that Kristin Chenoweth has been eying a Dolly Parton biopic that Dolly herself will be writing. It just needs to be, you know, finished so she can win the Oscar for it.

OtherRobert -- i think i just died reading that. HOW DID I MISS THIS? and also: THIS MUST HAPPEN.

Kristin Chenoweth does Dolly = Oscar Winner = Triple Crowned. Dat's right.

January 8, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJonathon

it's too heavenly to think of Kristin as a triple crowner. Don't tease me. (cuz you know the EGOT couldn't be far ;)

Is it wrong that I want to see Paul Rudd naked in a sex scene?

Oddly enough, Williams' "The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore" was made into a movie (called "Boom!" that bombed). Elizabeth Taylor played the lead a couple of decades younger, Richard Burton played the Angel of Death a couple of decades older, and Noel Coward played the Witch of Capri. Directed by Joseph Losey. I guess Taylor must have been a friend of Williams, having done Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Suddenly Last Summer. The play sounds kind of like a witty philosophical treatise, so I can see how the film might be problematic.
