Josh Lucas, Terrence Howard and Lake Bell are haunted by the laughable 'Ghost of New Orleans'
LATimes - 9 days
The type of vehicle that even Nicolas Cage likely would have passed on, “Ghost of New Orleans,” by Serbian director Peter (Predrag) Atonijevic, is a laughably pretentious crime caper-supernatural thriller hybrid that comes up woefully lacking on both fronts. Languishing on the shelf for the past...

Only Make Believe, a non-profit organization that creates and performs interactive theatre for children in hospitals and care facilities, honored Academy Award nominee Jude Law and Gregory Lee, President & CEO of Samsung Electronics N.A. at its annual gala, "Make Believe On Broadway," November 14th at the St. James Theatre in New York. Hosted by by Emmy winner John Oliver, the evening featured performances by stars of the stage and screen, including Josh Lucas, Julie Halston, Lesli Margherita, Adam Kantor and Montego Glover. On the red carpet, I asked the performers what their go-to feel-good entertainment was when they would stay home from school, sick. After each revisited their own childhood, they also shared the most meaningful thing a child has said after seeing them perform. Adam Kantor (Fiddler on the Roof, The Last Five Years) I remember reruns of "Bewitched" and "I Dream of Genie." Nick at Night. "All That." Talk about characters that inspire hope. Just a ...

J.K. Rowling’s recent comments that Hermione Granger should have ended up with Harry Potter instead of Ron Weasley ignited a firestorm of controversy among media and fans alike. But here at HuffPost Weddings, her remarks got us thinking about all the other characters whose love stories should have gone another way. Check them out below, and let us know if you agree or disagree in the comments! Carrie and Aidan from “Sex and the City” We love Mr. Big -- really, we do.

A Conversation With Montblanc CEO, Jerome Lambert
Huffington Post - over 3 years
When actor Josh Lucas worked on the film Poseidon, Wolfgang Petersen's remake of the Poseidon Adventure, his character wore a Montblanc Star Chronograph Automatic watch. The actor likened the accessory to a piece a armor which made him feel strong. "I wore it throughout filming and it got terribly, terribly banged up," recalls Lucas. "At the end of the film, I thought, I wish I had a not-destroyed one of these." Wish granted. Petersen ended up giving Lucas a new Star Chronograph Automatic. "I had never been given a gift quite like that," says Lucas, still in awe, "it's something that I can give my son." Since Montblanc was founded in 1906, writers, presidents and popes have relied on their Montblanc pens, watches and other accessories. In 1963, when German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer, who was with President John F. Kennedy, went to sign the city of Cologne's Golden Book, it turned out that he had no pen. President Kennedy came to the rescue when he reached into his suit jacket and ...

Your New Favorite Movie Star
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Lake Bell is an accent aficionado. She can blow through one dialect after the next with aplomb: French, Italian, Cockney, Russian "Star Wars," Valley Girl, flight attendant. The talent, which originated during Bell's childhood and was bolstered by the New York native's time living in France and attending college in London, is on full display in her new movie "In A World ..." The story of a misguided voice-over actress, "World" marks the first feature film Bell has directed, written and produced. Oh, and she stars in it, too. The multi-layered experience made for an "active" one, Bell says. She was able to take her spot in the director's chair by hiring a stand-in to rehearse scenes as her character, Carol Solomon, while Bell supervised. The venture found the 34-year-old commanding many of her pals, including Rob Corddry, Demetri Martin, Michaela Watkins, Nick Offerman, Fred Melamed and Eva Longoria -- some of whom are speed-dial entries on her iPhone. She even "cashed in so ...

Sarah Jane Morris Gets Spooky With A&E’s Occult Pilot
Boom Tron - over 3 years
An new pilot in development over at A&amp;E may just echo the presence of Fox “Spooky” Mulder on the small screen. The pilot is called Occult and NCIS alumnus Sarah Jane Morris will spirit up a performance. We’ve seen shows promise to offer some of that magic the X-Files delivered in its prime before, but the pilot for Occult has a leg up on such hopefuls. It was written by X-Files scribe James Wong. That tidbit was the first item to get my attention. Ready for the second? The pilot will star Josh Lucas. Can I get a woot, woot? I’m a Lucas fan. How can you not like those soulful blue eyes. The actor was the best thing about the short lived series modeled after The Firm. For Occult, Lucas is FBI Agent Dolan who nearly lost his mind when his wife Rebekah disappeared. Sarah Jane Morris has been cast as Rebekah, which would seem to suggest the actress would get very little screen time. But any X-Files fan can tell you how much of a presence Mulder’s vanished sister had on that seri ...

Mackenzie Foy Will 'Wish You Well' In New Film
MTV News - over 4 years
Bella and Edward will be so proud! The latest role-getting "Twilight" star isn't Kristen Stewart or Robert Pattinson but their on-screen daughter Mackenzie Foy, who according to Variety has landed the lead in the indie "Wish You Well." The 11-year-old will star alongside Ellen Burstyn and Josh Lucas in the film based on David Baldacci's best-selling 2001 novel. Set in the 1940s, the coming-of-age tale centers on Mackenzie's character, who along with her brother, relocates from the bustling Big Apple to a Virginia farm to live with their great-grandmother in the wake of a family tragedy. Sounds like a dramatic role Mackenzie will really be able to bite her teeth into (heh). Of course, audiences will first see Mackenzie portray half-human, half-vampire Renesmee in the upcoming "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," which hits theaters November 16. The cutie has a couple of additional projects on her plate, including "The Conjuring" and "Plastic Jesus," and we have a feelin ...

NBC Announces Mads Mikkelsen As Lead For HANNIBAL
Boom Tron - over 4 years
As series heads into pre-production, countdown toward cancellation begins. I have to think that NBC is chomping at the bit to see how Hannibal will perform once it reaches the air.  NBC placed the 13 episode, straight-to-series order back in February, and since have had to sit back and watch high-profile programs like Awake and The Firm get fed into the midseason replacement woodchipper. Up to this point, the TV iteration of Hannibal has existed primarliy as a transaction: a project high on potential with no real faces to arrest the imagination.  A month after the series buy was announced, the network announced Hugh Dancy (Our Idiot Brother, Martha Marcy May Marlene) in the role of Special Agent Will Graham, and David Slade (Awake, Breaking Bad) as the director of the pilot episode, but that’s all window dressing. Until now, the title character has remained shrouded in mystery, and not just because nobody cares.  According to Deadline, NBC has announced that Mads Mikkelsen, vet ...
