A Bride Harbors An Intimate Secret In This Haunting Short Film
Huffington Post - 27 days
Set to marry a British man, a Filipina bride-to-be struggles with her feelings for a former girlfriend in “Jane’s Wedding,” director Cole Stamm’s 2014 short film.  Stamm, who co-wrote 2013’s “Riddle” starring Val Kilmer, said he was inspired by a real-life woman he met in the Philippines. The woman, who was also named Jane, worked as a housekeeper in a Manila hostel. Although Jane identified as sexually fluid, she told Stamm that she planned to marry a man “so that she could have children to take care of her when she got older.” “I found this fluidity to be really interesting and started observing the LGBT culture more and more, eventually going with Jane to the slum where she sometimes lived called Paranaque, where I met all of her queer friends, including her girlfriend,” Stamm, who originally hails from North Carolina and now resides in Los Angeles, told The Huffington Post. He had praise for the actress Angeli Bayani, who portrays Jane. “Angeli is really ...

Jason O'Connell Talks Batman in "The Dork Night," Benjamin Evett Is the Ancient Mariner in "Albatross"
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Batman swept Jason O'Connell off his equilibrium when he was just a lad, and he's lived to tell the tale, which he's enthusiastically spinning in The Dork Night right now at the Dorothy Strelsin Theatre. For the extremely friendly and appealing O'Connell, Batman in his many film guises (Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, among them), the comic book figure hasn't simply been a pastime. For him, the pointed-eared masked figure has been more like a case of WWBD--What Would Batman Do? Since he was 9 years old, he's asked the pressing question of himself whenever faced with a dilemma. He's continued to employ Batman as role model right up to the present date when he's in his 40s. He's certainly relied on what he's learned for his several forays with the opposite sex. It's certainly been important for him, but not absolutely prohibitive, that the object of his affection is also a Batman aficionado--a Batwoman, you might say. When O'Connell, born in Commack and educated a ...

Val Kilmer Spotted Without Breathing Device Around His Neck In London
Huffington Post - about 1 year
 Val Kilmer is looking happy and healthy again more than a year after the actor was first rumored to be dealing with health issues.  Last year, the 56-year-old denied reports he underwent surgery to remove a tumor in his throat, but was later spotted wearing what seemed to be a tracheostomy tube in his neck. In recent months, the "Top Gun" star kept his neck covered with a bandana or scarf, causing many to speculate further.  Last week, the actor took to Facebook to share a photo of himself and his friend, Tracey Emin, after watching Ralph Fiennes perform in "The Master Builder" in London. In the pic, the medical device is noticeably absent from his neck, and Kilmer looks to be A-OK. .  He also shared a photo of himself with "Spring Breakers" director Harmony Korine, who has a show going on at the Gagosian Gallery in London.

That Flaming Lips Origin Story Is Faker Than You Thought
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The legend about The Flaming Lips' first-ever performance is that the band stole instruments from a local church and used them to play at a bar known for its cross-dressing clientele -- a suitably fitting origin for the psychedelic band that prides itself on not playing straight down the middle. Unfortunately, it's not exactly true. Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne laughed when the sort of rock folktale was brought up in an interview with The Huffington Post. He claimed that it's actually become "a combination of like three or four stories" that "sort of got simplified" over the years. As Coyne tells the myth, the era in which The Flaming Lips were becoming a band was a time of depression for Oklahoma -- where the band formed in 1983 -- and so Coyne ran with people that had it "pretty bad off" and "would be hard-working guys [who] couldn't find jobs." And so, with these hard economic times, these friends "would get involved in selling drugs and whatever just because they were ...

John Trudell: A Personal Remembrance
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Native American activist, musician, poet, actor John Trudell John Trudell once traveled all the way to Tucson, Arizona to talk to Native American students about his life. His activism. But mostly, he wanted to talk about whatever they wanted to talk about. Diminutive, amiable, unassuming, he happily spent an entire afternoon with some of my students, before addressing the entire student body at an assembly. And for once, there was none of the usual wise cracking, wiggling and giggling in the audience. The students were rapt. He had a helluva story to tell. Some students knew about his American Indian Movement activist days from their parents, some of whom had actually gone to the occupations at Wounded Knee and Alcatraz. Others only knew him as an "That guy in Pow Wow Highway," a film dear to many Native people, and the Val Kilmer vehicle, Thunderheart. Others had never heard of him at all. But they heard him that day. Once he got his warrior on it was impossible not to he ...

    Kilmer reunited with Davis in the 2013 Easter special of the sitcom Life's Too Short, in which he plays a fictionalized version of himself as a mooching, arrogant eccentric.
    More Details Hide Details Kilmer has gotten into feuds with some of the actors with whom he has worked, notably The Island of Dr. Moreau co-star Marlon Brando and Red Planet co-star Tom Sizemore. Other actors have noted that he prepares for his roles extensively and meticulously. Irwin Winkler (director of At First Sight) talked about his decision to hire Kilmer. "I'd heard the stories, so I checked him out. I called Bob De Niro and Michael Mann, who'd worked with him on Heat, and they both gave him raves... I had a wonderful experience in spite of all the naysayers." Jeffrey Katzenberg (producer of Prince of Egypt) talks about the actor: "Val was one of the first people cast in The Prince of Egypt. He was there every step of the way; patient, understanding, and phenomenally generous with his time."
    In May 2013, Kilmer lobbied Congress on behalf of Equitable Access to Care and Health Act, or EACH Act (H.R. 1814), a bill "to provide an additional religious exemption from the individual health coverage mandate" of Obamacare.

In the same interview, Spacey said he went to Juilliard because Kilmer did. Kilmer was at that time the youngest person ever admitted to Juilliard. During Kilmer's subsequent "Inside the Actors Studio" interview, he said "Robert Carrelli, who was our teacher, had a knack for producing and directing. And it was either Beverly Hills High, because of their very talented pool of students, or Chatsworth High that would win all these festivals."

Kilmer notes that his addition to the list of actors, including John Malkovich (Being John Malkovich) and Al Pacino (Jack and Jill), that mock their real-life persona in fictional movies was an accident and says, "I still love saying the premise because it makes me laugh every time." In 2002, Kilmer worked on a film about the life of Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of the Christian Science church, and Mark Twain, one of her most famous critics. Kilmer is still working on the film, which is about the lives and relationship of Mary Baker Eddy and Mark Twain as "a quirky, tender, tragicomic portrait of two contrasting lives, set against the backdrop of Gilded Age America."

    More Details Hide Details
  • 1997
    Age 37
    In 1997 he played Simon Templar in the popular action film, The Saint.
    More Details Hide Details Kilmer looked forward to the title role as a change toward a more fun, less serious action thriller, while enjoying the "master of disguise" chameleon characters like a mad artist, a nerdy British scientist, a cleaner, and a Russian mob boss. Kilmer also wrote the poetry in the film. He received a salary of $6 million for the movie. The Saint was a financial success, grossing $169.4 million worldwide.
  • 1996
    Age 36
    In 1996, he appeared in a largely unknown film, Dead Girl, and starred alongside Marlon Brando in the poorly received The Island of Dr Moreau.
    More Details Hide Details That year, Kilmer starred alongside Michael Douglas in the thriller The Ghost and the Darkness.
    In February 1996, Kilmer decided not to return for another Batman feature film, feeling that Batman was being marginalized in favor of the villains.
    More Details Hide Details George Clooney replaced Kilmer as Batman in 1997's Batman & Robin. Kilmer also decided he wanted to do The Saint, which seemed "very different, fun" to be a thief who was pleased by "entertaining himself with the characters he would create". There were also reports that Kilmer had not had a good working relationship with Schumacher, as another reason for not reprising the role.
  • 1995
    Age 35
    Released in June 1995, Batman Forever was a success at the box office, despite receiving mixed reviews from critics.
    More Details Hide Details There was debate about Kilmer's performance; some critics charged that Kilmer, while physically fit to play Batman, more so than his predecessor Michael Keaton had been, gave a wooden performance as Bruce Wayne. Other critics though, such as Roger Ebert, had kind words for Kilmer. Batman creator Bob Kane said in a Cinescape interview that of all the actors to have played Batman up to that point, he felt Kilmer had given the best interpretation. Film critic Leonard Maltin (who criticized the dark tone contained in Batman Returns) complimented Kilmer's portrayal when he reviewed the film for his expanding collection of film reviews, as well as being very favorable of the film as a whole. Defenders of Batman Forever praised the film for portraying Batman as a more heroic, less ruthless, and more human character than in the Tim Burton films. The film also brought the film interpretation of Bruce Wayne more into line with his comic book counterpart, showing him as a socialite and a very public figure rather than the neurotic recluse of the previous films.
  • 1993
    Age 33
    In December 1993, Batman Forever director Joel Schumacher had seen Tombstone and was most impressed with Kilmer's performance as Doc Holliday.
    More Details Hide Details Schumacher felt him to be perfect for the role of the Caped Crusader, though at the time, the role was still Michael Keaton's. In July 1994, Keaton decided not to return for a third Batman film after 1992's Batman Returns, due to "creative differences". William Baldwin (who previously worked with Schumacher on Flatliners) was reported to be a top contender, though just days after Keaton dropped out, Kilmer was cast. Kilmer took the role without even knowing who the new director was and without reading the script.
    In 1993, Kilmer played Doc Holliday in the western Tombstone alongside Kurt Russell, in what is credited as one of Kilmer's finest performances.
    More Details Hide Details In the film, Doc Holliday performs Chopin’s Nocturne in E minor, Op.72, No. 1; however, Kilmer does not play the piano and he practiced that one piece for months in preparation. 1995 saw Kilmer star in Wings of Courage, a 3D IMAX film, and that same year, he starred opposite Al Pacino and Robert De Niro in Heat, which is now considered one of the best crime/drama films of the 1990s.
  • 1989
    Age 29
    In 1989, Kilmer played the lead in both Kill Me Again, again opposite Whalley, and in TNT's Billy the Kid.
    More Details Hide Details After several delays, director Oliver Stone finally started production on the film The Doors, based on the band of the same name. Kilmer spoke with Oliver Stone early on, concerned about what he might want to do with the story because Kilmer didn’t believe in or want to promote substance abuse. Kilmer saw Morrison as having picked the wrong heroes, who had different issues, that were not part of the creativity or inspiration. Kilmer saw Morrison's story as one that could be told "a thousand different ways" and didn’t want to tell it by playing the role in the style of drugs, with which Oliver Stone agreed. Kilmer memorized the lyrics to all of lead singer Jim Morrison's songs prior to his audition, and sent a video of himself performing some Doors songs to director Stone. Stone was not impressed with the tape, but Paul Rothchild (the original producer of The Doors) said "I was shaken by it" and suggested they record Kilmer in the studio. After Kilmer was cast as Morrison, he prepared for the role by attending Doors tribute concerts and reading Morrison's poetry.
  • 1988
    Age 28
    Kilmer was married to actress Joanne Whalley from March 1988 to February 1996.
    More Details Hide Details The two met while working together on the film Willow. The couple had two children: a daughter, Mercedes (b. October 29, 1991), and a son, Jack (b. June 6, 1995). Warwick Davis, Kilmer's co-star from the 1988 fantasy Willow, in his audio commentary for the film said that the question he's most asked is what it was like working with Kilmer. Though Kilmer has a reputation of being difficult, Davis describes him as a very funny man and a hard working, dedicated actor.
    Kilmer starred in the Colorado Shakespeare Festival production of Hamlet in 1988.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1985
    Age 25
    During a brief hiatus, he backpacked throughout Europe before going on to play the lead character in the 1985 comedy Real Genius.
    More Details Hide Details He turned down a role in David Lynch's Blue Velvet before being cast as naval aviator "Iceman" in the action film Top Gun alongside Tom Cruise. Top Gun grossed a total of $344,700,000 worldwide and made Kilmer a major star. Following roles in the television films The Murders in the Rue Morgue and The Man Who Broke 1,000 Chains, Kilmer played Madmartigan in the fantasy Willow; he met his future wife, co-star Joanne Whalley, on the film's set.
  • 1983
    Age 23
    Also in 1983, Kilmer self-published a collection of his own poetry entitled My Edens After Burns, that included poems inspired by his time with Pfeiffer.
    More Details Hide Details The book of poems is difficult to obtain, expensive and even second-hand copies fetch $300 and up. His big break came when he received top billing in the comedy spoof of spy movies Top Secret!, where he played an American rock and roll star. Kilmer sang all the songs in the film and released an album under the film character's name, "Nick Rivers." While garnering more substantial roles and prestige, he also gained a reputation as a ladies man, dating numerous women, some many years older, including Cher and Ellen Barkin.
    In 1983 he appeared off Broadway in The Slab Boys with Kevin Bacon and Sean Penn.
    More Details Hide Details That same year, his first off-stage acting role (excluding television commercials) came in the form of an episode of ABC Afterschool Special called One Too Many, which was an educational drama on drinking and driving; it also starred a young Michelle Pfeiffer.
    Kilmer turned down a role in Francis Ford Coppola's 1983 film The Outsiders, as he had prior theatre commitments.

  • 1981
