In This 'Mojave' Clip, Oscar Isaac Is Not Your Charming, Groovy Internet Crush
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Oscar Isaac has played heroes like Poe Dameron, misanthropic artists like Llewyn Davis and menacing innovators like Nathan Bateman. The Internet loves him all the same. But in "Mojave," which premiered at last year's Tribeca Film Festival and opens in limited release on Friday, he is an all-out homicidal weirdo. The Huffington Post has an exclusive clip from the movie, which was written and directed by "The Departed" and "Kingdom of Heaven" scribe William Monahan.  "Mojave" revolves around Thomas (Garrett Hedlund), a suicidal artist who encounters his unfriendly doppelgänger (Isaac) in the desert, after which said doppelgänger attempts to dismantle Thomas' life. The clip finds the men in a gun-wielding standoff at Thomas' lush Los Angeles home.

'Inside Llewyn Davis' Review: The First Word On The Coens' New Film
Huffington Post - about 3 years
In an alley behind a cafe in New York's Greenwich Village, an unidentified stranger knocks singer Llewyn Davis to his knees. Within the first 10 minutes of the Coen brothers' latest dark comedy, the filmmakers acquaint us with the curiously obscure, as violent fits are not usually associated with folk music. The genesis of this animosity is left unanswered until the final moments of the film, leaving the lingering off-kilter question: Why would anyone beat up a folk singer? Thus, we have the perfect onset for this bleak and witty tale of a striving musician. Here the Coen brothers pluck at the beatnik scene of the late 1950s and early 1960s. Helmed by long-time Coen collaborator T Bone Burnett, the tunes in this film — which are performed live — bare morbid undertones that correspond with the foremost concepts of the story: poverty, abortion, disappointment and death. As the film opens, we are introduced to our guitar-strumming lead, Llewyn Davis, who is onstage in a smoke-filled di ...

'Catching Fire' Star Sam Claflin On Eating Sugar Cubes & This One Party At Jennifer Lawrence's House
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Sam Claflin wears nothing but a fish-netting during his first scene as Finnick Odair in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," but it's what the 27-year-old English actor had in his mouth that was a real problem. "We did that scene for a whole day. When we first started shooting, I was actually eating two sugar cubes," Claflin told HuffPost Entertainment about the eye-opening introduction he has to the blockbuster franchise. During the sequence, Finnick uses a seductive tone and those miniature sweets to rattle "Catching Fire" protagonist Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence). "There were two per take. Then I toned it down a bit, like, 'You know what, is this necessary?' There were a lot of sugar cubes consumed," Claflin said. "I remember they only had one box, and we nearly got to the end of the box. When we were done, I immediately brushed my teeth." Sam Claflin in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" Finnick Odair is one of a handful of major characters added to the "Hunger Games" ...

Ryan Gosling Turned Down '50 Shades Of Grey' Role
Huffington Post - over 3 years
If "50 Shades Of Grey" producers had their way, Ryan Gosling would have said hey to Anastasia Steele. A new piece in The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Gosling was reportedly the first choice for the role of Christian Grey in "50 Shades," but he was not interested in the part. Gosling wasn't alone on the "50 Shades of Grey" wish list: Producers also apparently sought to cast Garrett Hedlund, but he, too, turned them down. (Us Weekly was the first to report that Hedlund had passed; at the time, his reps declined to comment on the news.) THR mentions other actors who were sought for Grey, but not Robert Pattinson. According to author Bret Easton Ellis, however, "50 Shades" writer E L James wanted the "Twilight" star to play Grey, an obvious choice given that the books started out as "Twilight" fan-fiction. Talked to E.L. James at a party over the summer: her first choice for Christian was Rob Pattinson and Matt Bomer was never in the running. — Bret Easton Ellis (@BretEastonEllis) S ...
