Hector Elizondo Talks About “New Year’s Eve” 

Hector Elizondo is director Garry Marshall’s lucky charm. He has made 17 movies with Marshall. I interviewed the actor last year for “Valentine’s Day,” and this year, once again, I was regaled by Elizondo. In “New Year’s Eve,” he stars as Kominsky, the MacGyver-type of guy who helps unstuck the New Year’s Ball!

In this interview, we talked about:

*** Working with Marshall for 17 times
*** What attracted him to the role of Kominsky
*** His New Year’s resolutions
*** What he’s looking forward to in 2012
*** He loves Filipinos! Yay!

Have fun!

Do the Curly Shuffle! "Three Stooges" Trailer is Here! Are You Laughing? Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk? 
Earlier this year, when I interviewed the Farrelly brothers for "Hall Pass," they talked about their planned "Three Stooges" movie. The interest in this film is high because once upon a time, Sean Penn, Benicio del Toro, and Jim Carrey were attached to the movie. Then casting shuffle ensues when the above actors left production, and now we have Will Sasso, Sean Hayes, and Chris Diamantopoulos to play the main characters Larry, Moe, and Curly. Heck, even Sofia Vergara, Larry David, Jennifer Hudson and Jane Lynch are joining the fun!

And now, we present you the trailer of "Three Stooges" from Fox. But, honestly? It doesn't look funny, no? Are Penn, Carrey, and del Toro right in exiting the project?

How can the fourth film of the franchise be different from the other “Mission Impossible” movies?
