Josh Lucas, Terrence Howard and Lake Bell are haunted by the laughable 'Ghost of New Orleans'
LATimes - 6 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...

We Need To Talk About Justin Theroux's Unfortunate Birthday Tattoo
Huffington Post - 6 months
What does Justin Theroux want to never happen again ... again?  The “Leftovers” star debuted some questionable new ink on Instagram Thursday, one day after his 45th birthday and one week after his wedding anniversary with his wife, Jennifer Aniston.  The tattoo, which reads “Never Again Again” (what?), was the handiwork of celebrity tattoo artist Scott Campbell, who is married to actress Lake Bell, and apparently a birthday treat for “The Leftovers” star.  “Thanks @scampbell333 and fellow birthday boy @lousyleo for letting me bite it. #thanksagainagain,” he wrote. Thanks @scampbell333 and fellow birthday boy @lousyleo for letting me bite it. #thanksagainagain A photo posted by @justintheroux on Aug 10, 2016 at 4:06pm PDT In a futile attempt to decipher the meaning of Theroux’s tattoo, we came up with a list of things it could possibly be about: watching “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle,” admitting that he co-wrote “Zoolander 2,” being snubb ...

Winspear's Women, and the Wounded in the War to End All War
Huffington Post - over 1 year
"... they've been bringing in wounded late at night so no one can see them... the men are in a terrible state, and they arrive with their clothes reeking of dirt and rats... "... They bring them in on trains when there's no one to see them -- men with no faces, with no legs, and all the blood on their uniforms -- they don't even have time to change them, all that French mud still on them." Thea Brissenden's ambulance-driving skills, and her courage under fire, in France, make it possible for grievously wounded men to survive long enough to be transported all the way to a London hospital. Thea Brissenden is one of several admirable characters in Jacqueline Winspear's World War One novel The Care and Management of Lies. Electing service London's 1915 intolerance of suffragettes and persecution of peace-proponents oblige Thea to flee. She escapes those battles to serve in France as a member of Britain's Voluntary Aid Detachments. Thea volunteers to ferry wounded from blo ...

Lake Bell Talks Directing The Long-Awaited 'Emperor's Children' Adaptation
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Fans of "The Emperor's Children" have been anticipating the film adaptation since the novel's 2006 release, and after much limbo, it looks as though they'll be finally getting it. Lake Bell, who's directing the film, spoke to HuffPost Live about the still-nascent project, which now has an attached lead (Jeff Bridges) and a completed script by veteran screenwriter Noah Baumbach. "[I'm] a big fan of his," Bell said. "He wrote a beautiful script... [of] a beautifully penned novel to begin with. A very New York story." The "Childrens Hospital" star is more widely known for her acting, having starred in the HBO series "How To Make It In America," as well as her directorial debut "In A World..," which she also wrote. Bell is eager to continue her foray into directing with Claire Messud's bestseller, a work she particularly connected with.

Why Reading the 'New Yorker' Will Get You Punched in the Head
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
I saw a blinding white light -- or rather felt -- it as the sucker punch hit the left side of my temple. Later, staggering on The Bowery, I would be amazed that my Goorin Brothers newsboy hat stayed on my head and that my library book (Duff by Kody Keplingeri) would remain in my back pocket. I had taken two shots to the noggin and the next day my shoulder would feel pulled out of the socket (had the guy grabbed my arm or had it happened as I pushed towards him before the second white light punch?). The day after that, my left tricep would be sore perhaps where the two girls were banging on me. All in all, I was fine, nothing a day of ice packs and Netflix (American Horror Story season one) couldn't fix. I was sorry to miss the rest of The Dwarves punk show at the Bowery Electric, but glad not to be blindsided by punches. It was a good show, but I won't be attending anymore punk concerts and I blame the New Yorker magazine. The New Yorker has had a lot of punk history stories -- the ...
