Oscar®-nominated Child Actor Needs Help Getting to the Academy Awards® 


Meet Fawad Mohammadi, he's a street kid from Kabul, Afghanistan who starred in a short fiction narrative called "Buzkashi Boys" from director Sam French. That movie is nominated in the Oscars live action short category but here's the problem -- he needs a few dollars more to attend the Academy Awards on February 24. Mohammadi was discovered for his role while selling tourists maps on the streets of Kabul.

He has ever left his hometown.

If you have it in your heart to donate a couple of dollars, you can go to the rally page here: https://rally.org/buzkashiboys

Hopefully, we'll see him at the Oscars!

Would You Watch An "Entourage" Movie? 


Yes it's finally happening, an "Entourage" movie is in the works! This is a pet project of Warner Bros. that is based on the hit HBO series featuring Adrian Grenier (Vincent "Vinnie" Chase), Kevin Connolly (Eric “E” Murphy), Kevin Dillon (Johnny Drama), Jerry Ferrara (Turtle), and Jeremy Piven (Vinnie's super-agent Ari Gold).

The show's creator, Doug Ellin, has written the script and will direct. This one will be a sequel to the series and will happen six months after the finale and will concentrate on Ari's next move.

There's no shooting date scheduled yet, because first, Warner must make sweet deals with the show's stars.

This whole HBO series-to-film translation is very similar to a previous HBO series-to-film translation -- "Sex and the City!"
