Jim Sturgess Talks About "One Day," His Character Dexter, and Hair! 


It was a pleasure seeing Jim Sturgess again. I interviewed the actor before for “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole” where he voiced the character Soren. This time around, Sturgess stars in the romantic drama “One Day” with Anne Hathaway based on the beloved book by David Nicholls.

In this interview, we talked about:

*** What he saw in the character Dexter that made him want to do “One Day”
*** Working with Anne Hathaway
*** How he attacked the character of Dexter
*** The many hairstyles he wore in the movie

HAVE FUN AND WATCH “ONE DAY” WHEN IT OPENS NATIONWIDE THIS FRIDAY, AUGUST 19TH:

"Conan the Barbarian" Movie Review! How Many Kisses Does Jason Momoa Get? 


I used to love the sword and sorcery genre as a kid. I entered the magical realm by way of the 1982 “Conan the Barbarian” movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. I even enjoyed the sequel, “Conan the Destroyer,” and the spin-off called “Red Sonja” starring Brigitte Nielsen.


So when I first heard that Lionsgate was planning to reboot “Conan the Barbarian,” I welcomed the news with utter disbelief. But I can tell you now that watching the latest incarnation of the world’s most famous barbarian brought back the same feelings I had when I saw Schwarzenegger’s heroic fantasy for the first time.

Matthew McConaughey to Outstrip Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer in Male Stripper Drama! 


This should get your juices flowing, HA! :happy

Variety is reporting that Matthew McConaughey is joining Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer in Steven Soderbergh's indie drama "Magic Mike."

Tatum will play Mike, a stripper and dancer who guides Pettyfer's character and teaches him the ins and outs of male stripping business. Shades of "All About Eve," anyone?

McConaughey will star as Dallas, an ex-stripper who now owns Xquisite, the club where "Magic Mike" takes place.

And shades of "Burlesque," no?

But I have a strong faith on Soderbergh. He's a great actor's director and always makes character-centric movies! Apparently, "Magic Mike" has shades (yes, I've been using that word a lot today!) of Tatum's experiences working as a teen stripper in Tampa!

(Have you seen Tatum's secret stripper past video? Click here!)


Reid Carolin is writing the script and is producing with Tatum and his 33andOut Productions. I'm glad Tatum is proud of his stripper past. Wouldn't you be?

Jason Momoa Talks About "Conan the Barbarian" -- the possible sequel, Schwarzenegger, and Spam! 


Jason Momoa is enthralled to be playing the iconic Cimmerian warrior. As soon as I walked into the room, he giddily asked me if I'd seen the movie and if I liked it. Towering over me (it felt like the actor was three times my size), I replied yes, of course! And his face lit up.

Momoa, who was born in Hawaii and raised in Ohio, has some big shoes to fill (or warrior sandals), with Arnold Schwarzenegger starring in the 1982 version. But he's game, and he is very proud of the movie. See for yourself when the film opens this Friday, Aug. 19th.
In this interview, we talked about (CAUTION: SOME FEW CUSS WORDS...SORRY):

*** His attraction to making the film
*** Was he a fan of the original Schwarzenegger version?
*** Does Conan have a place in today's pop culture landscape?
*** Conan lives, loves, slays, and is contented. Does Momoa subscribe to those principles...without slaying, of course
*** How he prepared for the role -- he watched cats!!!
*** He wrote a "Conan" sequel!
*** The Hawaiian staple, SPAM!

It was a pleasure to finally meet Rose McGowan. I've been a fan of her since she played Amy Blue in 1995's "The Doom Generation," and now, she's the mystical Marique in Lionsgate's "Conan the Barbarian" starring Jason Momoa as the Cimmerian warrior. She was a delight to talk to and was very proud of the movie.

*** Did she do anything special to prepare for the role?
*** Her character always tastes something in the air
*** The dynamic between her character and Stephen Lang who plays her father in the movie
*** She also talks about the sand people
*** Working on the set
