Samantha Barks (Eponine) Interview for “Les Miserables!” I Sang “On My Own” to Her! 


I love Samantha Barks! She is sweet, bubbly, jovial all in one brilliant package! She was happy as a clam too when I interviewed her for “Les Miserables.” She is making her feature film debut and oh my, what a debut it is! She nails it as the lovelorn Eponine. The sassy showgirl whose humble beginnings started in a U.K. reality show, “I’d Do Anything,” is on her way to bigger and better things!

In this interview, yes, I sang to her, but we’ll get to that:

*** Why “Les Miserables” is her biggest passion
*** Her climb to fame
*** Her natural performance as Eponine
*** How she got that part
*** What Cameron Mackintosh did to tell her she got the part
*** Her super-skinny waist – to look waif-like
*** Singing “On My Own” with Eponine aka Samantha Barks

Eddie Redmayne Interview for “Les Miserables” – He’s Wearing the Same Marcus Hairdo! 


Eddie Redmayne created a memorable performance in last year’s “My Week with Marilyn.” But who knew he could sing? And sing well! Redmayne stars as Marius in the new epic musical “Les Miserables.” Wait until you see him sing the character’s signature song “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables.” Goosebumps galore!

In this interview, we talked about:

*** His rigorous audition process for “Les Miserables” while wearing a Texan cowboy outfit
*** His special connection to “Les Miserables” the musical
*** He’s wearing the same hairdo as his character Marius
*** Working with Amanda and her character being the bearer of hope and light
*** Acting in a film that’s predominantly sung-through

New Official Trailer for Guillermo Del Toro's "Pacific Rim" 


Giant robots! But before you say Megatron, I highly doubt that Guillermo Del Toro will go Michael Bay on us and give us a movie that's visually exciting but half empty, plotwise. Here's what we know of "Pacific Rim" so far -- When an alien attack threatens the Earth's existence, giant robots piloted by humans are deployed to fight off the menace. Starring Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi. "Pacific Rim" opens July 12, 2013. Here's the fun trailer:
