Here's Why That Heineken Ad Is Even Worse Than The Pepsi Ad
Huffington Post - 10 months
If you asked me to describe the worst blind date ever, it would go something like this: We arrive at an abandoned warehouse for drinks. My date looks like a cross between John Malkovich and Britney Spears when she was struggling. I can tell I’m gonna need to get drunk to get through this. But first, for no discernible reason, we have to build an entire fucking bar from scratch. Now I’m sweating. Midway through the date, it’s revealed that the person I’m working with is an actual neo-Nazi. A strained conversation ensues about why my humanity isn’t up for debate. Then we drink the third shittiest beer on the planet until one of us dies from kidney failure. The end. If that sounds familiar, you’ve probably seen the new Heineken commercial being dubbed “The Antidote To The Pepsi Kendall Jenner Ad.” Well, the funny thing about antidotes is, over time, they can be just as deadly as the poison. And that’s why this ad is high-key worse than Pepsi’s latest tragedy and/or ...

'Walking Dead' Star Ross Marquand Does Absolutely Killer Impressions
Huffington Post - 11 months
Ross Marquand might be known to “The Walking Dead” fans as Aaron ― but he can also take on dozens of other roles at a moment’s notice.  That’s because Marquand is also a world-class impersonator, and he put those skills to work in a new clip from Esquire.  This one has a twist: Marquand doesn’t just show off his ability to mimic actors including Liam Neeson, John C. Reilly, Ewan McGregor, Brad Pitt and Jack Nicholson.  He also puts them in the wrong movies in this “Casting Remix.”  Find out what Christopher Walken would sound like as the kid in “The Sixth Sense.” Check out what happens when Liam Neeson ends up in “The Princess Bride.” And if you want horror beyond anything in “The Walking Dead,” wait until you hear John Malkovich as Rose in “Titanic.” See it all in the clip above.  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Watch John Malkovich 'Leave' Acting To Pursue A Fashion Career
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Just a few months after John Malkovich partnered with Squarespace to perform homages to various David Lynch characters ― such as the log lady from “Twin Peaks” ― Malkovich is now debuting another eclectic acting project with the website creation company. In a new short film, Malkovich plays himself as he leaves his career as an actor to pursue a passion for fashion design. The movie, “Journey,” shows Malkovich trying to overcome his reputation as an actor in order to have his designs taken more seriously. At one point, he reads an email titled, “John Malkovich 2017,” that only has one line ― “Is this a joke?” Malkovich, sitting up in bed alone, sends the email to the trash. The plot of this project slightly mirrors the 1999 Charlie Kaufman movie “Being John Malkovich.” In that full-length feature, the main character finds a way to control the mind of the Malkovich-played character, John Malkovich, and forces Malkovich to abandon his acting career to become a successful puppet...

Aisle View: <em>Liaisons</em>, What's Happened to Them?
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Liev Schreiber and Janet McTeer in Les Liaisons Dangereuses Photo: Joan Marcus Christopher Hampton's 1985 stage adaptation of Choderlos de Laclos' 1782 epistolary novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses last appeared locally in a middling 2008 production starring Laura Linney and Ben Daniels at the Roundabout that was, despite the dazzling dialogue and amorous action, pretty much dull as ditchwater. Compared to which, this new production at the Booth--which originated at the Donmar Warehouse in London starring Janet McTeer, and with Liev Schreiber added to the mix for New York--rehabilitates the play's reputation. This new Liaisons, directed by the Donmar's artistic director Josie Rourke, is intelligent, colorful, and lively (mostly). Call it a solid B+. It is questionable--or perhaps dangereus?--to compare an all-new production with the original; one has to assume that the majority of the potential audience is coming to the play innocent. (In this particular case, it is a...

Watch John Malkovich Perform As A 'Lady' In David Lynch Homage
Huffington Post - over 1 year
You certainly haven’t seen John Malkovich like this before, but given the actor’s impressively eclectic career, it should come as no surprise. This last week, Malkovich has been performing homages to the filmmaker David Lynch’s most memorable characters as part of a video-series titled “Playing Lynch.” So far, Malkovich has taken on the “Twin Peaks” characters of agent Dale Cooper and the log lady, as well as Frank Booth from “Blue Velvet.” Today, HuffPost is debuting Malkovich’s take on the lady in the radiator from Lynch’s 1977 movie, “Eraserhead.” Photographer Sandro Miller directed the series as a partnership with Squarespace ― who is hosting the project online ― and the David Lynch Foundation. Miller and Malkovich have collaborated numerous times in the past, including on the 2014 photo series, “Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters.” For that project, Malkovich posed as the subjects of various famous photographs in history, such as Che Guevar...

27 Doors to Walk Through in New Orleans
The Huffington Post - about 2 years
New Orleans is a city of made of equal parts magic, music, and lovers of life. When walking down the streets of the French Quarter, Frenchman Street, and the Garden District, you can't help but stroll among the spirits of yesterday - each one filled with a variety of emotions ranging from love, light, and strength to sorrow, darkness and despair.

John Malkovich Compares His Hit Movie To Bad Oral Sex
Huffington Post - about 2 years
John Malkovich recently sat down for an, um, interesting interview with Rolling Stone.  The movie star and director spoke with the magazine about making the trippy cult classic, "Being John Malkovich," as well as the effect it had on his own reputation. The 1999 film, which follows a puppeteer who discovers a portal to movie star John Malkovich's brain, was written by Charlie Kaufman and directed by Spike Jonze in his feature film directorial debut. Malkovich told Rolling Stone that he was not only hesitant to film the actual movie, but also cautious about having his real name in the title of it.  "I never thought anybody would be goofy enough to actually film [the script]," the actor told Rolling Stone. "But I hadn't met Spike. And when they asked me to do it, I was slightly worried. Not at all about the tone or content, but the feeling of, if you do a film where your name is not above the title but in the title, then you may have some serious narcissistic tendencies whic...
