New Q & A - Actors who should be more famous and more...

"For the life of me I will never understand why Audra McDonald isn't bigger outside of Broadway." - Brian

"I will add to that list Irfhan Khan; he gets roles steadily, but in my mind he should be a household name." -Rebecca

"I'll also echo that Rosemarie DeWitt is one of the most talented working actresses, full stop. There is no other Best Supporting Actress of 2008." - Hayden

c'mon. take another little piece of my link, babe

Next Movie Evan Rachel Wood & Juliette Lewis would rather they play Janis Joplin than Amy Adams! Agree?
Hark! A Vagrant stops for Quiz Time with Queen Elizabeth. If only Elizabeth: The Golden Age was this (intentionally) funny!
Stale Popcorn loves the costumes of Argo (as do I) 
Playlist will we see a Fincher-helmed sequel to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. So many questions. So few answers but I am going to say a hard "yes" on my guesswork on this one. I have my reasons. 

Salon wonders if horror has reached a new golden age and whether European (Spanish to be precise) cinema is to blame. 
i09 Wally Pfister, the Oscar winning cinematographer of Chris Nolan's filmography will direct his own feature now. Johnny Depp to star.
/Film Zero Dark Thirty and Stand Up Guys have adjusted their release plans to barely show in 2012 but still be Oscar players. Oy... I hate this part of the otherwise glorious last quarter of each year. In related news: yes, I'm fully aware that I need to add Jessica Chastain to my Actress chart. Updates this weekend!
Playbill Whatever happened to that Soapdish remake? Never mind, it's now being adapted into a musical. Quite a starry lineup they're gathering for a reading: Kristin Chenoweth & Jane Krakowski? Blonde musical comedienne sensation x 2 !

Gawker 'my pussy is the temple of learning' Madonna's Sex and Erotica turn 20 years old this week. I love them both muchly. If only they were movies I would devote the whole week to them. Please do not say "Body of Evidence" as its the only embarrassing part of that Madonna 92/93 trifecta that's no cause for celebration. (Should I write about them anyway and just force the film connections?)
Cinema Blend Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone for Cameron Crowe's next movie? 
Pajiba on the Empires of the Deep trailer. Hmmm Errrr. The only recognizably non-computerized thing in it is one shot of Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) One senses this won't be her Resident Evil poor thing. 
In Contention talks to the very busy very awesome character actor John Goodman

I can't help but think that John Goodman has some awards attention coming his way. I mean can a generally well-respected character actor be in SO MANY buzzy movies and not get anything in return? He has the perfect story and they love character actors in Supporting Actor. I just have no idea what film he would even be nominated for. Flight if it is a big enough hit and he has some moments and the academy feels it needs to reward it more than just Leading Actor?

James: I agree about John Goodman. It seems right to me, there's one spot open, and his role in Flight looks flashy.

Nathaniel: Please, for the love of all that Madonna gives us, write up Body of Evidence through the prism of Sex and Erotica (or sex and erotica). I'd love to read that. (Plus, early Julianne Moore!)

i don't mind movies that open NY/LA around christmas and then roll out in wider release in early/mid-january - like ZDT apparently is, and like, i don't know, gran torino did back in the day. it gives me something to see in january after all the big holiday releases have come and gone, and probably gives the movies a better opportunity to distinguish themselves and get people in the seats. its the "one week oscar qualifiers" who open in one theater but don't actually open until february or later that bug me - the three burials of melquiades estradas of the world.

Please write about Erotica and Sex!!! I love all the acclaim by critics that Erotica is getting nowadays. That album was so ahead of its time.

October 25, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTyson


you are so right about that! Madonna was always picking and working with the most promising up and coming talent (David Fincher, Harris Savides, Carrie Ann Inaba, etc) before they hit it big.

Way ahead of its time indeed.

I think Erotica deseves reavaluation,i think it's her REAL materpiece.

October 25, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermark

I would much rather see Evan Rachel Wood or Juliette Lewis play Janis Joplin. Amy Adams is a competent, vaguely pretty actress. Nothing more. I don't understand why the world is so fascinated by her.

October 25, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSloane

Sleep Tight is very entertaining and Luis Tosar is brilliant (as usual).

Erotica (the title song & the music video) will always be in my top 5.

October 25, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue

On the Mermaid movie: Yeah...yikes. You can tell they're trying REALLY HARD to pull this off on a VFX level, but this looks like a BOMB waiting to happen.

October 25, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterVolvagia

I love John Goodman with a deep and abiding love. He is my secret husband.

October 25, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDeborah Lipp

Interesting about Wally Pfister. I only wish that he had cast an actor whose commitment to making his movies a success wasn't so in doubt.

October 25, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterEvan

Omg please write about Erotica and Sex. It might be my favorite Madonna era, and imagine what can be written about the 'Bad Girl' and 'Rain' videos alone!

October 25, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSeeking Amy

@Sloane Junebug. She has a free pass for life from me. She could make a million Leap Years and I would still love her.
