Cameron Diaz has played everyone from kick-ass heroine in the CHARLIE’S ANGELS movies to a terrible teacher in BAD TEACHER. However, playing a pregnant woman was brand new to her in her new comedy WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING (based on the best-selling book of the same name). In the film she’s a weight loss fitness show host and a contestant on a DANCING WITH THE STARS-esque series who is paired up with GLEE’s Matthew Morrison as one of the many baby-making couples in the movie. “I was so lucky to be able to, you know, be [Matthew’s] partner […]Read On »

Composer Interview: Jeff Grace haunts THE INNKEEPERS

Any horror-centric composer can enter a haunted house and awake the resident spooks by throwing a battery of percussion instruments and equally unsubtle samples down the steps of a dark basement. But it’s one thing to rattle the nerves, and another to truly frighten the listener. With subtlety, and melody becoming many since-deceased composers like Bernard Herrmann and Jerry Goldsmith, a young musical Turk named Jeff Grace is successively scaring the hell out of us with more of a whisper than a scream, even if he might not have his predecessor’s orchestral resources. It’s a similar high-quality, low budget appeal […]Read On »

In Memorium: Davy Jones of The Monkees chats about his career in one of his last interviews

Davy Jones during his THE MONKEES days

With the passing of Davy Jones last week at age 66 of a heart attack, the world has once again re-evaluated his position in pop culture as one-fourth of the 1960s rock band The Monkees. Together with Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork, the foursome were cobbled together for a successful TV show which resulted in a string of successful albums – music which still resonates today even if they were unfortunately dubbed by the media “The Pre-Fab Four” (a nod to the Beatles). From “Daydream Believer,” “Look Out, Here Comes Tomorrow” and “I Wanna Be Free,” Jones was […]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 »

BAD TEACHER | ©2011 Sony Pictures There’s nothing wrong with the wacka-wacka style of pizzicato comedy scoring to hit all of the talking animal orchestral shenanigans for the younger set. And though comedies for older folks might share many of those PG movies’ fondness for bathroom jokes, cute string hits just don’t cut it for potty-mouthed R-rated characters whose best idea for a bodily function is getting it on. And they do the nasty with guitar chords, funk rhythms and saucy pop-jazz, vibes that stand for much of the approach when it comes to scoring contemporary teen-adult comedies. However, when […]Read On »

THE GOOD WIFE’s Julianna Marguiles takes time off the set to promote her hit drama’s second season. Playing a lawyer, says Marguiles, 44, isn’t unlike that of portraying a doctor on ER. Things happen very quickly, sometimes in a ridiculously short period of time, all for the sake of good drama. TAKE 1 On how, unlike in real life, things happen very quickly on TV… “Well, it has to because it’s only a 42-minute show,” says Marguiles. ” I mean, my husband is a lawyer, and the first time he saw (the show) — he wasn’t a big television watcher.  […]Read On »
