Relatively few actresses create three indelible characters in their careers, but Alyson Hannigan has managed this hat trick and may well enact more in her future. Hannigan, born in Washington, D.C.and raised in Atlanta, started her career early, appearing in commercials before moving into films (including MY STEPMOTHER IS AN ALIEN) and television (FREE SPIRIT). Then, in 1997, Hannigan began her seven-season run as BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER’s Willow Rosenberg, who started as a shy brainy high school student and became a very powerful witch, along with achieving real-world lesbian icon status when the character came out. Willow lives on …Read On »

For five years on CHUCK, our title hero, played by Zachary Levi, has had to juggle his secret spy life with his work life at the big-box Buy More store. All of Chuck’s work mates at the Buy More are a little eccentric, but Lester Patel, played by Vik Sahay, is borderline diabolical. At various times, Lester and his now-reformed erstwhile partner-in-crime Jeff, played by Scott Krinsky, have staged rebellions, tried to blow up the Buy More and formed the two-man band Jeffster. This season, Lester has gone to jail for trying to poison Jeff back to his old weird …Read On »

As J.J. Abrams fears up to direct STAR TREK 2, rumors of characters and plots have been bubbling to the surface, yet there is one thing that is concrete – the movie will be in 3D. J.J. Abrams spoke briefly about what’s happening with STAR TREK 2 while promoting his new show ALCATRAZ at today’s FOX TCA press tour. “The studio wanted to do [3D] and I didn’t want to,” says Abrams. “When I saw parts of the first movie converted though, I thought, ‘it’s okay with them doing it, as long as I could shoot the movie I wanted …Read On »

In the CW’s freshman series RINGER, which airs Tuesdays at 9 PM, Sarah Michelle Gellar stars as twin sisters Bridget and Siobhan. Wealthy Siobhan invited Bridget to New York, then faked her own death. Bridget has adopted Siobhan’s identity, partly to get away from Victor Machado, the determined FBI agent played by Nestor Carbonell, as Victor wants Bridget to testify against a homicidal mob boss. Back in 2004, Carbonell starred with future RINGER colleague Ioan Gruffudd in the short-lived legal drama CENTURY CITY. The New York-born actor has also been a series regular on SUDDENLY SUSAN and THE TICK, but …Read On »

Composer Interview: Howard Shore talks HUGO and A DANGEROUS METHOD

In the near four decades that have taken him from being the bandleader of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE  to walking onto the stage to accept a couple of Oscars, you could say that Howard Shore has been on a continual journey of wide-eyed wonderment, one encompassing as much tender emotion as utter insanity. In over eighty scores, Shore’s used cheerful bells to embody MISS DOUBTFIRE, reached into the percussively booming pit of a serial killer’s mind in SEVEN, given a hack director the symphonic glory of Orson Welles in ED WOOD, created the mind-blowing pulsations of SCANNERS and took the side …Read On »

Movie Review: THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN

THE ADVENTURES OF TIN TIN movie poster | ©2011 Paramount Pictures

Rating: PG Stars (motion-capture): Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost Writers: Steven Moffat and Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish, based on the comic book series by Herge Director: Steven Spielberg Distributors: Paramount/Columbia Release Date: December 21, 2011 THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN is a curious sort of film. Based on the comic book series by the Belgian writer/artist Herge (real name Georges Prosper Remi, 1907-1983), the motion-capture adventure gives dimensionality to the look of the original artwork, but relies on a kind of Boy’s Own Adventure sensibility that seems a little thin by contemporary standards. Director Steven …Read On »

Composer Interview: Conrad Pope spends time with MY WEEK WITH MARILYN

It takes many skilled hands to keep Hollywood running as the stars take their bows- an army that includes personal assistants, makeup artists and publicists, all of whom are sure to step out of the way of the glaring flashbulbs. Then there’s the even less sexy caste of the studio machine called “below the line,” the mostly unrecognized visual effects artists, writers, production designers, editors, costumers and other skilled craftspeople who allow the stars to shine- their own jobs eased on the steam of even more obscure laborers chained to computers and sewing machines. Yet these toiling men and women …Read On »
