One minute acting

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 8, 2010 12:20:40 December 8, 2010 12:20:40

A lot of you have been sending me this today: the New York Times video featuring (mostly) world class actors “acting” for a minute. Let’s call this what it is, ok? It’s a little pretentious and contrived. Come on now… The black and white, the music, the self involvement disguised as art – this kind of sh-t alienates people. Full Story

6 narcissists at the table

This is your weekend assignment. Because who has the time during the week to spend an hour on this, even though it’s 60 minutes of pure amazingness? The Hollywood Reporter Actors’ Roundtable is embedded below. Enjoy it, maybe over breakfast on Sunday, really savour the experience. I broke it up into two parts on Wednesday night during my playlist making, loved it, but wonder if I would have even more if I hadn’t paused. Full Story

James & Annie hosting Oscars?

The source is Nikki Finke at Deadline. In other words, it’s tight. James Franco and Anne Hathaway have apparently been approached to host the Oscars. Finke says they’ve both accepted and an announcement is imminent. Big bold new moves.. Full Story

Natalie Portman, comedienne

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 17, 2010 09:00:00 November 17, 2010 09:00:00

Written by Sarah First, let’s get something straight. I don’t dislike Natalie Portman. I like her quite a lot, actually. She’s sharp, talented, and I generally like her movies. I don’t see all of them because she has a habit of making some pretty depressing stuff, but I enjoy her on screen. Full Story

James Franco

Arguments for:- He delivers an outstanding performance in 127 Hours and many say he will be nominated for an Oscar- He has been everywhere – on daytime television, on the festival circuit, on talk shows, on SNL, in comedies, able to straddle art house pictures, comedies, and major motion picture releases- He is supposedly a versatile artist, studying writing, directing, sculpture, and enrolled in every creative post graduate program available in New York- He’s beautiful- He is scandal-free Arguments against:- While Franco has certainly made inroads, he is still not mainstream enough- Some people think he’s gay- His artiness borders on annoying. Full Story

Franco & Copley

Two buddy cops, right? It’s a good combination. But first, James Franco is hitting the circuit hard right now promoting 127 Hours, opening this weekend. Highly highly recommend. He is so great, delivers such an amazing performance in this movie, only you have to steel yourself. You have to prepare yourself for a lot of discomfort, not only at the gruesome parts, but also by how you might feel while relating to that kind of isolation, desperation, loneliness, and, ultimately, with every minute that passes, the seeming futility of the situation. Full Story

Jon #1

The Daily Show is taping from Washington all week leading up to the Rally to Restore Sanity on Saturday. Want to go. Won’t be going. If you’re going I’m jealous. Anyway, timely enough, Jon Stewart has also just been named the Most Influential Man of the Year, according to AskMen.com Full Story

Franco’s conflicting reviews

Lainey Posted by Lainey at October 21, 2010 08:21:29 October 21, 2010 08:21:29

James Franco has been almost universally applauded for both his performances as Allen Ginsberg in Howl and in 127 Hours playing Aron Ralston, who was trapped by a boulder in Utah and had to cut his own arm off. At this point in the season, Franco is considered a lock on a nomination for Best Actor. And he’s choosing now, while he has momentum I guess, to promote his collection of short stories Palo Alto. Full Story

James Franco: 2 movie weekend

On Saturday it was the Your Highness panel at the NY Comic-Con. He and Danny McBride play Fabious and Thadeus and probably smoke a lot of dope and do some dumb sh-t. At least this is what I’m assuming and I won’t bother getting corrected. Do you watch Eastbound & Down? If you do, there’s probably no question you’re seeing Your Highness. Full Story

Redemption in drag?

Seeing this kinda makes me roll my eyes a little less enthusiastically at his pretention. Check out James Franco on the cover of Candy Magazine, a publication that celebrates “transvestism, transexuality, cross dressing and androgyny, in all its manifestations.” He is f-cking hideous. And also a little bit hot. Full Story
