16 Movie Stunts That Went Horribly Wrong

16 Movie Stunts That Went Horribly Wrong -

 

A huge explosion goes off after an epic fight sequence and in the foreground, through a cloud of clearing smoke, you see the hero, walking away relatively unscathed while dusting his/her shoulders off. It’s the cliche action star shot. But as great as they look on film, these shots don’t always play out that smoothly behind the scenes.Here are some movie stunts gone horribly wrong that you probably never even knew about.

Via Lionsgate Films/Now You See Me

Isla Fisher – Now You See MeThe actress was “trapped” in an underwater tank, and the script called for her to panic and bang desperately on the glass. What the people on set didn’t notice was that Fisher had become entangled in her chains, and was actually panicking. She spent two and a half minutes struggling underwater before she was finally able to free herself and get to safety.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt – Premium RushBeing a New York City bike messenger is one job you couldn’t pay me enough to do. Hell, I live in Toronto and I wouldn’t ride a bike downtown. Those guys are fucking crazy. And apparently, faking it for a movie is just as dangerous. Just ask Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who ended up with 30 stitches in his arm after slamming into a cab while filming a scene for 2012’s Premium Rush.Turns out Levitt has some bad luck with bikes. In 2018, on the set of Power, he flipped over the handlebars of a bike and landed in urgent care. Maybe just stick to movies with no bikes pal, or at least let the stunt guys handle it for you.

Via Paramount Pictures/Æon Flux

Charlize Theron – Æon FluxRemember Charlize Theron in Æon Flux? Ya probably not, unless you’re one of the four people who actually watched it. Unfortunately for her, she’ll probably never forget it after she fell during a stunt and seriously injured her neck. Theron was nearly paralyzed and spent eight weeks in the hospital. The damage caused by the fall even forced her to have neck fusion surgery years later.

Aaron Paul – Breaking BadAaron Paul was almost crushed on the set of the hit TV series Breaking Bad. The actor was asked to stand underneath a large boulder for a specific shot. No problem, and it went off without a hitch. It wasn’t until he stepped away that the boulder came crashing down, landing in the exact same spot where he had just been standing.

Via Universal Pictures/Back to the Future Part III

Michael J. Fox – Back to the Future Part IIIIn his autobiography Lucky Man, Michael J. Fox described the time he almost died while making Back to the Future Part III. For the scene when Mad Dog tries to lynch Marty Mcfly, he was supposed to act like he was struggling, but what the crew didn’t realize was that Fox wasn’t just giving a truly breathtaking performance, he was actually being hung. By the time they cut him down, he was unconscious, but thankfully he ended up being okay.To top it off, the shot turned out so good, they used it. So what we see in the movie is basically real.

Via Warner Bros. Pictures/Syriana

George Clooney – SyrianaWhile shooting a torture scene for his 2005 movie Syriana, Clooney cracked open his skull and suffered some severe spinal injuries. The pain was so bad, the actor revealed that he contemplated taking his own life. He eventually recovered and went on to say, “I went to a pain-management guy whose idea was, ‘You can’t mourn for how you used to feel, because you’re never going to feel that way again.'”

Sylvester Stallone – Rocky IVI think it’s safe to say that we all know Rocky Balboa and Ivan Drago weren’t actually pounding each other’s faces in. The fight scenes were all heavily choreographed, and no matter how amazing they looked the first time you saw Rocky IV, they’re fake. Except for that one time…After watching the historic 1985 match between middleweight boxers Marvin Hagler and Tommy Hearns, Stallone was inspired and decided to ask co-star Dolph Lundgren, who he admittedly had a hate-hate relationship with at the time, to really try and knock him out during one of their fight scenes. That bright idea landed Sly in the ICU for nearly a week after his heart swelled up from banging into his ribs so hard, an injury that normally occurs in car accidents.

Via Gilligan's Island Wiki

Bob Denver – Gilligan’s IslandAs highly trained as they are, having wild animals on set always increases the risk factor. Especially when said animal is a damn lion. Unfortunately, Bob Denver learned that the hard way during a scene for Gilligan’s Island when he was nearly mauled by one. Luckily though, the lion slipped attempting to jump at the actor, which gave the trainer enough time to intervene.

Via Universal Pictures/Inglourious Basterds

Diane Kruger – Inglourious BasterdsDiane Kruger’s character Bridget von Hammersmark suffers a pretty gruesome death in Inglourious Basterds. The actress was supposed to be choked by an offscreen actor, but when director Quentin Tarantino decided to do the honours he got a little carried away and squeezed too tightly, accidentally causing Kruger to pass out.

Halle Berry – Die Another DayIf you sign up to be a Bond girl, one thing’s a guarantee, 007’s getting you under the sheets. But Halle Berry got more than she bargained for while filming Die Another Day. During her steamy sex scene with Pierce Brosnan, Berry was supposed to seductively slice and eat a fig, which she did, and it was hot… right up until she started choking.Brosnan recalled the freak accident, saying, “Suddenly there was no sound coming out. She was waving her arms and I was banging her on the back. I was about to put my arms around her and start doing the Heimlich manoeuvre, but the both of us were kind of naked. Somehow she expelled the fruit, which was a good thing.” He playfully added, “I was certainly in no position to give the Heimlich to Halle at that moment.”I don’t know Pierce. If you ask me, you were in the perfect position.

Via 20th Century Fox/Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

Uma Thurman – Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning ThiefUma Thurman had a close call on set when a parked van positioned behind her started rolling downhill. The actress would have been crushed by the vehicle if it wasn’t for the quick actions of her co-star and apparent real-life superhero Pierce Brosnan, who jumped into the van and stopped it.Good guy Pierce, at it again.

13

Via 20th Century Fox/Chasing Mavericks

Gerard Butler – Chasing MavericksGerard Butler nearly drowned while shooting a surfing scene for 2011’s Chasing Mavericks. After a massive wave crashed into him, he was caught in what’s known as a two-wave hold down, when one wave takes a person too deep to surface before another wave hits. He suffered some major injuries, which unfortunately led to a painkiller addiction and a brief stint in rehab, but Butler has since turned his life around.

14

Via ABC/Lost

Matthew Fox – Lost This one is so crazy, it’s actually hard to believe. For the finale of Lost, Matthew Fox was shooting a fight scene with fellow cast member Terry O’Quinn. In the scene, Fox’s character gets stabbed in the abdomen with what was supposed to be a collapsable stunt knife, but somehow it got mixed up with a real one, which they were using to film other shots with. It’s a good thing the actor had on protective kevlar padding and only suffered some bruising, because he could’ve easily been seriously injured or killed.

Jackie Chan – Pretty much all of his moviesJackie Chan’s calling card has always been that he does his own stunts, and with that comes a slew of expected injuries. I still remember when I found out that he broke his foot halfway through the filming of his first breakout movie in North America, Rumble in the Bronx. Instead of delaying the shooting schedule, they just painted up his cast to look like his other shoe, and he carried on. Crazy.But perhaps his most severe injury happened on the set of Armour of God II: Operation Condor, when Chan fell and suffered a serious brain injury that required surgery and a metal plate, which he still has in his head today.

Via Lionsgate Films/The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2

Jennifer Lawrence – The Hunger Games: MockingjayJennifer is no stranger to stunt accidents. While making The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, she seriously injured her ear during an underwater sequence and was partially deaf for months. But it was a mishap on the set of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay that really caused a scare.During the filming of a tunnel scene, one of the smoke machines broke and began spewing dense smoke at the actress, nearly suffocating her. It took several minutes before crew members could rescue her, and filming had to be put on halt while she recovered from nausea and vertigo.

Brad Pitt – TroyThis movie turned out to be pretty good, but making it was anything but that. Brad Pitt, who played the ancient warrior Achilles, was filming a combat sequence and ended up rupturing his, umm, Achilles. Oh, the irony.


Santa Claus Dies At A Party For Kindergartners In Siberia

Santa Claus Dies At A Party For Kindergartners In Siberia

 

A committed Father Christmas  performer has collapsed and died during seasonal festivities at a kindergarten in Siberia.

A video shows how the Russian Santa was energetically performing with excited young children before he suddenly stood still and fell backwards.

Some of the youngsters can be seen thinking perhaps his collapse was all part of the game, which involved them touching their noses, and some rushed towards the fallen figure.

 

 

 

 

But the actor playing white-bearded Дед Мороз (Ded Moroz) or Grandfather Frost, as he is known in Russia, had collapsed next to the decorated Christmas tree with a heart attack.

Another cast member, a woman dressed as a clown, is seen rushing behind the tree to help the stricken Santa.

Actor Valery Titenko, 67, had complained of chest pains but wanted to perform so as not to let down the children

His health had been poor and he had undergone working heart surgery but was still working

He had been given a day off from the theatre but insisted on attending the children's festive party.

'The man felt ill in the kindergarten,' said a medical source.

'He was taken in an ambulance but died on the way to the hospital.'

In Russia Santa - Ded Moroz, or Grandfather Frost - gives presents to children at midnight on New Year's Eve and is usually dressed in red but is also seen sometimes in a blue costume


Kevin Spacey Charged With Felony Sexual Assault, Releases Bizarre Video As Frank Underwood

Kevin Spacey charged with felony sexual assault, releases bizarre video as Frank Underwood

If you were planning on spending this holiday taking a break from the madness that has been 2018 well ... Merry Christmas? I guess?

Earlier today, Kevin Spacey, the disgraced star of Netflix’s House of Cards, posted the bizarre video above, tweeting out the YouTube link with the phrase “Let Me Be Frank.” Bear in mind, this is on Christmas Eve. It takes some real chutzpah to try to upstage Jesus on his birthday.

The video, which runs a little over three minutes, features Spacey alluding to the scandal that got him fired from House of Cards — where his character, President Frank Underwood, was killed off, despite appearances to the contrary today. He warns people that “we’re not done no matter what anyone says,” and claims he knows what we want: ”You want me back.” Uh, okay.

Spacey lost his gig on House of Cards (and co-starring in the film All the Money in the World, where he was replaced by Christopher Plummer) after numerous allegations of sexual assault and misconduct came to light, starting with one from actor Anthony Rapp claiming that Spacey had attempted to sexually assault him when he was only 14 years old. In this video, Spacey is defiant, claiming it would be easy if “it was all so simple,” while also defensively suggesting that “in life and art nothing should be off the table” — whatever that is supposed to mean. And he decries his “impeachment without a trial.”

I genuinely have no idea what Spacey was going for here: Not with the video, not with the message, not with the old timey music cue at the end, and certainly not with the timing of this release. But hey, if you need something to talk about around the holiday table, fire up the old YouTube and let this one rip!


Actor Admits To Cutting His Own Arm Off To Get More Roles

Actor Admits To Cutting His Own Arm Off To Get More Roles

Being an actor is hard. Your days are full of rejection, you often go months without a reliable income, and you, more than likely, won't fulfill your lifelong dreams of stardom. However, sometimes people can go a little bit too far when trying to boost their career. Actor Todd Latourette is a prime example of this sentiment, as he went to extreme measures to improve his career by cutting off his own arm so that he could more easily pose as a war veteran.
Todd explains that he cut off his arm with a saw and quickly cauterized the wound, during a manic state that took place when he was off his bipolar medication. Miraculously, his plan somewhat worked, he explains that "the film industry obviously took a different angle [when they saw me with one arm]. That I was different. And so they liked that."

Although his career has received a minor boon due to the incident, Todd feels guilty about his actions and is trying to make amends by coming clean. He explains, "I was dishonorable. I'm killing my career by doing this (coming clean), if anyone thinks this was for personal edification, that's not the case."

He hopes his story can be used as a reminder for individuals to seek mental health help and not to ignore symptoms. Todd states, "The power is in your hands to take your medication in the morning, or at night. So that, this, this discourse of my life doesn't need to necessarily be yours. Because it happens quick... it happens quick."

You have to give some respect to someone who is truly willing to give an arm and a leg for their career.


The First Footage And Photos From Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker

The First Footage And Photos From Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker

 

Director Todd Phillips has been sharing sneak peaks into the new ‘Joker’ origin film starring Joaquin Phoenix. First, we were given this first look at the Joker, AKA Arthur.

Seeing the Joker’s full makeup has seriously hyped people for the film, but that hasn’t stopped them from making jokes too.

 

 

 

 

 

Then on Friday, we were given this look behind the scenes, showing Joaquin Phoenix is full costume (inspiring more jokes of course).

 

Altogether, all of these sneak peaks are intriguing fans. However, not everyone is sure Joaquin Phoenix will be able to live up to Heath Ledger’s performance.

We’ll simply have to wait until 2019 to see for ourselves how good this ‘Joker’ film is.

22 Movie Fails You Can’t Forget

 22 Movie Fails You Can’t Forget

 

Even the greatest Hollywood filmmakers can make silly and funny mistakes. And once you manage to notice these fails, you can’t help but remember them forever.

The Martian

When Mark was making a list of dishes, he somehow mentioned sweet and sour chicken twice.

Mars is about 1.5 times as far from the sun as it is from the earth but it shines just as bright.

A signature left in red marker changes along with its entire image.

The Incredibles

The scene in Bob’s office: At first, a cup is in the middle of the table, but in the next shot, it falls down from the edge of the table.

In the dinner scene, Dash’s haircut changes multiple times: in a couple of seconds, we can see 3 different styles.

The Matrix

In the first movie during the scene on the rooftop, we can see Neo and Morpheus standing not far from a building. In the next shot, we see the building right behind Neo.

In The Matrix Revolutions, in at least 2 scenes, we’re able to clearly see 2 strangers instead of Neo. Meet Keanu Reeves’ stuntmen.

The Wolf of Wall Street

In the scene where the main hero is sitting next to his first boss, the number of martini glasses always changes: first, we see just one glass, then another one appears, and then we see just the 1 glass again.

In one of the scenes, Jordan Belfort puts his left hand on an employee’s shoulder and holds a microphone in his right hand. In a second, we can see the mic in his left hand and his right hand is on the man’s shoulder.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

In the scene where a window display with jewelry crashes, necklaces fly right toward the characters but they manage to duck. In the next second, Newt and Kowalski are literally strewn with jewelry.

When Queenie comes to Kowalski’s bakery, the place is full of people. But when we get inside, all the people suddenly disappear.

Alice in Wonderland

Initially, the paintings on the ceiling are almost invisible but in the next scene, they become more and more bright.

The color of the heart on Stayne’s eye always changes: it’s black, then it’s red. It’s funny since Stayne is Knave of Hearts, thus, the color should always be red.

Sherlock Holmes

In one of the scenes, Irene’s necklace appears and vanishes. How do you like that, Sherlock Holmes?

Dr. Watson and Irene open a map and press its corners with a candlestick and a mug. That’s all fine but why do they repeat this action twice?

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

Harry Potter receives the first letter, brings it to the living room, and Uncle Vernon grabs it. Quickly, the seal changes and climbs up onto the Hogwarts emblem.

When Oliver tells Harry everything about Quidditch and shows him the balls, we can see a path right behind Harry. But when we see both guys, there are no paths at all.

Titanic

The process of shooting this film was accompanied by various difficulties (including building full-scale scenery). In one of the scenes, we see Jack standing on the bow of the ship but when he stands there with Rose, the design of the bow looks completely different.

In the scene where Rose decides to jump off the Titanic as she talks to Jack, we can see her nice earrings, but when Jack saves her and Rose falls down, the earrings disappear.

In the scene where Rose looks through Jack’s illustrations, we can see that a gentleman’s coat changes its color and length in the blink of an eye.

When Rose decides to rescue Jack, she breaks the glass to get the fireman’s ax. She removes all of the glass from the frame after breaking it. But then, when she grabs the ax, we see that most of the glass is back.

The ship starts to sink at night but we can see bright sunlight coming in right through the windows. How is that possible?


She's One Of China's Biggest Stars And She's Getting A Pay Cut

She's One Of China's Biggest Stars And She's Getting A Pay Cut

 

China’s highest-paid entertainers are getting a pay cut. Chinese officials have issued a directive aimed at capping the salaries of some of the country’s biggest stars, reports the Guardian. The salaries of on-screen talent will be held to 40% of total production costs, and leading actors will be paid not more than 70% of the cast’s overall wages. According to Deadline, this would apply to films, television shows, and online programming. The joint notice from five government agencies follows guidelines established in 2017 by the China Alliance of Radio Film and Television.

The directive is a crackdown on so-called “yin-yang contracts,” in which a performer receives two contracts of different sizes, but only the smaller of the two is reported for tax purposes. The notice criticized the practice and encouraged the entertainment industry to focus on social benefits rather than click-through rates. Earlier this month, China announced that it has launched a tax evasion inquiry into its television and film industries. The country’s highest-paid actress is 36-year-old Fan Bingbing, star of X-Men: Days of Future Past and Skiptrace, reports the Daily Mail. Bingbing earned $17 million in 2016 and was ranked No. 5 on Forbes’ list of the world’s richest actresses.

Every Easter Egg In 'Avengers: Infinity War'

Every Easter Egg In 'Avengers: Infinity War'

 

(Spoilers) Sydney, Australia-based film enthusiast "Mr. Sunday Movies" points out and explains all of the easter eggs, references, and secret cameos in the just-released latest Marvel superhero film, Avengers: Infinity War.

 


The 5 Most Underrated People In the Marvel Cinematic Universe

The 5 Most Underrated People In the Marvel Cinematic Universe

1. Sam Rockwell (as Justin Hammer)

Iron Man 2 gets a bad wrap, often characterized as the worst (or at least, most disappointing) film in the MCU. A lot of it is justified - the obvious, distracting setting up SHIELD and Avengers that distracts from the movie's actual plot, the whole bit with Tony needing to turn his circle-chest-light into a triangle to stop his blood from being poisoned, and the real rotten subplot of Pepper deciding to not take over Stark Industries because business is hard for her. But there's still a lot to love in the film - Don Cheadle ably taking over Rhodey, the pretty badass Black Widow hallway fight, the continued born-for-this-role of Robert Downey Jr., and - most importantly - Sam Rockwell's turn as Justin Hammer.

Iron Man doesn't exactly have the most memorable rogues' gallery, which has always left the solo Iron Man films facing an uphill battle (and while subverting the Mandarin expectations was a fun twist in 3, the actual villain being a jacked guy who could breathe fire was underwhelming). But Sam Rockwell is just so good as Justin Hammer - a Tony Stark wannabe, who has lots of money and influence, but knows he's not as cool, collected, and brilliant as Stark. He's dripping with smarm, seething through his inferiority complex, and serves as a perfect mirror-version to what Tony Stark would have become had he just been a little bit worse in every area of his personality.

Not gonna say Iron Man 2 is great or anything, but it's worth revisiting for Justin Hammer alone.

 

2. Edward Norton (as Bruce Banner)

Edward Norton had a lot of work to do with 2008's The Incredible Hulk - it was effectively rebooting the character for the wider audience after the disappointing Ang Lee entry starring Eric Bana years earlier, serving as the follow-up to the MCU's debut film Iron Man, and had the hardest job of all: try to make an entertaining solo Hulk film. As Joss Whedon said years ago:

Hulk is a tricky son of a bitch. He's the Claudio of superheroes. Because the problem is it's a very popular character, but it's not a superhero. Half of it's a superhero, half of it's a werewolf. And you can't structure it like a superhero movie, you can't light it like a superhero movie. How do you develop that? It would be extremely difficult.

The big challenge with a solo Hulk movie is that Bruce Banner is kind of a miserable guy to follow as the protagonist - and his desires are completely at odds with the audience's. The audience desperately wants to see him turn into the Hulk and start smashing, but that's Bruce's greatest fear. So he winds up coming across as mopey and frustrating when he's front and center - and somehow Edward Norton managed to convey that sadness within Bruce while still giving us a pretty damn good movie.

Granted, there were lots of messy behind-the-scenes shenanigans, including locking Norton out of the editing process - and the relationship between Norton and Marvel got so messy that they actually straight-up replaced him. Sure, that happened with Terrence Howard/Rhodey as well, but he was a supporting character - Bruce Banner was the lead of a film, and a core member of The Avengers.

Regardless, The Incredible Hulk made the impossible possible, and largely thanks to Norton. Although Liv Tyler as a surprisingly compelling Betty Ross, Tim Roth's great turn as the Abomination, and the genuinely awesome final battle in Harlem all helped a lot too.

 

3. Sean Gunn (as Kraglin...and Rocket Raccoon)

James Gunn gets a lot of (deserved) credit for bringing Guardians of the Galaxy to life and turning it from a previously D-tier franchise into one of the gems of the MCU by infusing it with humor, music, and tons of weirdness. But he had a few partners in this, namely his brother Sean. In the films, you know him as Kraglin, one of Yondu's semi-loyal Ravagers who was the last one of the crew standing at the end of Vol. 2, but he actually played an even more important role in both films: Rocket Raccoon.

While Bradley Cooper voices Rocket Raccoon, he's not going full Andy Serkis here - he comes in late in the process, after filming is complete, to record his lines. But meanwhile, someone IS on set doing the performance capture and reference work - and that's Sean Gunn. Here's how James Gunn describes it:

Sean Gunn is not a stand-in. He is a motion reference actor. That means we film everything Sean does on set as Rocket. We film it. I don't stop doing takes of him until we get the performance right and then we use that performance as a basis for much of Rocket's acting. And he does a fantastic job in that role. He knows it. He understands it. And also very important, Sean is able to physically do something most actors aren't able to do, which is waddle around on all fours. He's always been an incredibly limber guy that can to do a lot of strange physical things. And the fact that he's able to waddle around on his legs all day long at the exact height of Rocket is quite a feat and quite quite difficult.

So on top of playing Kraglin (and honestly, doing some truly great, emotional work in what was effectively a background character), Sean Gunn has the unglamorous job of waddling around as Rocket for nearly the entire filming process...and getting very little credit for it. Ask anyone off the street who plays Rocket Raccoon, and 99% of them will say "Bradley Cooper." But so much of what makes Rocket work as a character is the physicality of the role - and that was all provided by Sean Gunn (and an unbelievably talented team of VFX artists).

 

4. Joe Johnston (director of Captain America: The First Avenger)

I'm not sure that anyone in the Marvel world had a harder hill to climb than Joe Johnston, who directed Captain America: The First Avenger (a subtitle no one has ever actually used when referencing the movie). Because it was the last movie to come before 2012's The Avengers, there was absolutely zero wiggle room - it had to handle ALL of Captain America's story through him being awoken in the present. The result is that it isn't just an origin film - it's an origin TRILOGY, all smashed into one, 2-hour film.

See, it has to do all of the following:

  • Set up Steve Rogers as a puny loser, who has the spirit but not the body
  • Have Puny Steve prove his worth and go through the Super Soldier Serum process
  • Have Captain America lead the Howling Commandos to a series of victories, for a long enough period to cement him as a legend that will be remembered and spoken of for decades to come
  • Set up the friendship/bond with Bucky, and have Bucky be seemingly killed
  • Defeat Red Skull, get frozen, get awoken

...and all of this while balancing a very tricky tone (the whole notion of Secret Science Nazis led by a Red Skeleton-looking guy is truly really campy), figuring out some very difficult special effects that serve as the introduction of one of the biggest Marvel characters ever (bobblehead puny Chris Evans works surprisingly well, although there are a few shots where it looks particularly wonky), and selling the idea of "Captain America" (a character who is inherently old-fashioned) to modern audiences.

The crazy thing? IT WORKS. The movie is fun, vibrant, and filled with real heart (thanks to Chris Evans, Stanley Tucci, and Hayley Atwell), even if some of the pacing and structure feels off. But when it was followed-up by The Russo Bros.' Winter Soldier (which may be the BEST MCU film to date), it's not surprising that The First Avenger was forgotten - especially because it's look and tone is SO FAR removed from Winter Soldier / Civil War, it feels like it's from a completely unrelated franchise.

But it's good. Honestly, no scene in the MCU makes my heart swell like lil Steve jumping on the dud grenade.

 

5. Sarah Halley Finn (casting director of...THE ENTIRE MCU)

As far as the behind-the-scenes folks go, Kevin Feige tends to get ALL of the credit - and while the guy deserves all the praise he gets (what he has masterminded is honestly completely bonkers, by any standard), a key element sometimes gets overlooked: how well cast the MCU is. It's full of surprising choices, but each and every actor involved in the MCU seems like they were born to play those roles. And we have Sarah Halley Finn to thank for it.

How many people would have thought to cast Chris Evans as Captain America? He was a B-tier Hollywood action guy who had already done a few middling superhero movies - and now it's unclear if he's playing Steve Rogers or if Steve Rogers is playing Chris Evans. Chris Hemsworth was an Aussie mostly known for soap operas - but can you imagine anyone else playing the lunkheaded, charming Asgardian better? Chris Pratt was a schlubby guy best known for doofy supporting TV characters - but Sarah Halley Finn saw the potential in him to be a jacked, charismatic leading man. And before you say it was all James Gunn's vision, let's hear what James Gunn himself had to say about it:

"We had screen tests of at least 20 people, actually screen tested at least 20 people - big stars, no names - looking for the right person, because I really wanted somebody who could embody this character and take it beyond what was on the page in the same way Robert Downey Jr. did for Iron Man, essentially. And nobody blew me away. Plenty of people were really good; maybe the people were great, but nobody blew me away. Sarah Finn, our casting director really deserves the credit for Chris in a lot of ways because she kept putting his picture in front of me and saying, 'You know, what about this guy? Why don't you meet with him?' And I was like, 'The chubby guy from Parks & Rec? You're stupid!' And she kept doing it and kept doing it and finally she like really -- I don't remember ever agreeing to see Chris. I just remember her saying 'OK and after this guy, Chris Pratt's here' and I was like 'I thought I...' and I was a little mad. I was like 'I thought I didn't wanna see him.' But then Chris came in and he started to read and this is a hundred percent true that within 20 seconds I was like, 'Holy sh-t, that's the guy. That's who we've been looking for.'"

It's easy to underestimate the contributions of a casting director - you think the producers and directors do everything and make all the important choices, but the reality is that Sarah Halley Finn is someone we should all be praising too. She saw potential where no one else did - and it's thanks to her foresight that these movies have found such unprecedented success.


10 Movie Sequels That Never Happened

10 Movie Sequels That Never Happened

We have seen many successful movies since the film industry was born and when we watch a movie at the cinemas, or at home, we sometimes want more from the franchise. Many have seen filmmakers bring out a second addition to the first one including Jaws, Fast & Furious and Friday the 13th. But there have been potential sequels that ended up thrown in the trash can. Let's take a look at the film titles that could have been more...

1. Forrest Gump 2: Gump & Co

"Run Forrest, run to the sequel!"

Sadly Tom Hank's Forrest Gump never made the sequel finish line. The 1994 film was a true success and arguably known as one of the best films to have ever hit the cinemas. Hanks won his first Oscars award in 1995 for his role as Forrest Gump.

The commercial success, however, was not enough to convince Hanks and the Director Robert Zemeckis after the screenplay for the second film by Eric Roth never saw the light of day.

2. Seriously Dude, Where's My Car?

In 2000, we saw the release of the hilarious Dude Where's My Car? which featured Two and a Half Men's Ashton Kutcher and American Pie's Sean William Scott. The movie was a breakthrough for Kutcher when achieving a role in That 70's Show.

Plans of a sequel were in the works in 2003 with Scott fully behind the idea but Kutcher blew up the hopes of Seriously Dude, Where's My Car? due to his commitments with other projects.

In 2016, however, Kutcher said in an interview that there is still a chance of him reprising the role. Never say never fans!

3. Con Airport

One of Nicolas Cage's most memorable films is Con Air when it was released in 1997. Cage playing the released prisoner, Cameron Poe, going up against the evil inmate Cyrus 'Cyrus The Virus' Grissom played by John Malkovich.

Even though the main antagonist was killed at the end of the movie there were talks of a sequel. Despite 15 pages going into a proposed sequel, it would eventually be thrown in the bin. Maybe it's best Con Air is left as a standalone and classic 90's film.

4. Kill Bill 3

Perhaps a franchise we have been expecting a third installment for a while since Kill Bill: Volume 2 was released in 2004.

The second movie was a financial success in the box office making over $120 million but has so far not been enough for director Quentin Tarantino to make a sequel to Kill Bill: Volume 2.

Tarantino has said in interviews in 2004, upon the release of Kill Bill 2, that he would leave the franchise for "at least 15 years." But it is believed Tarantino has held talks with Uma Thurman in January 2016 to get her to reprise the role of Beatrix Kiddo.

5. Mrs. Doubtfire 2

The return of everyone's favourite nanny, or man nanny in this case, was very close to returning to the big screens. Robin Williams, who portrayed Mrs. Doubtfire, was open to another film in the franchise. In 2001, Mrs. Doubtfire 2 was being developed by Bonnie Hunt, who is known for her voice work in many animations, including Toy Story 3.

But despite the attempts by Hunt, it was not enough to convince Williams to reprise the role as he shared in interviews that he wanted the script to be spot on.  Sadly 2014 saw Williams tragically pass away resulting in no more Mrs. Doubtfire.

6. Elf 2

Now this certainly would be a nice early Christmas present for fans of the first Elf film.

Elf is arguably one of the best and funniest Christmas films with Will Farrell portraying an overgrown elf on the quest to reunite with his father. We saw Farrell reprise the role of Ron Burgundy in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues in 2013.

In that same year, media company Mental Floss wanted to make an Elfsequel but Farrell announced he did not want to make a second installment. So unlike Anchorman, Elf looks to have no sequel.

7. I Am Legend 2

Will Smith's character's death at the end of I Am Legend clearly indicates no sequels to the highly acclaimed 2007 film. But a possible prequel as Director Francis Lawrence revealed his plans in 2008 with the highlight of Will Smith reprising his role as Dr. Robert Neville.

But the chances of the prequel were down and out after Lawrence said in May 2011 that he didn't think it was going to happen.

8. Napoleon Dynamite 2

"Hey Pedro, wouldn't it be cool if we were in a sequel?"

I think many would love to see that, Napoleon.

It's been 14 years since the release of the hilarious Napoleon Dynamite. The film has many moments we all remember including Napoleon's 'Vote for Pedro' t-shirt and his bizarre dance moves in front of the school.

There were plans for a sequel but director Jared Hess was not convinced even though Jon Heder, who portrays Napoleon, was up for making a second movie. Instead of bringing out another movie they instead approached the animation side of things as the Napoleon Dynamite TV show was out for only six episodes in January 2012.

9. E.T. 2: Nocturnal Fears

"E.T. phone Steven Spielberg for a sequel."

Sadly for the world's favourite alien, E.T. has not come back to the big screens since the original film was released in 1982. E.T. was a big and financial success making a profit of nearly $800 million so there was no wonder Director Steven Spielberg was considering a sequel.

Weeks after the release of E.T., Spielberg and writer Melissa Mathison did write up a story for the working sequel until Spielberg was against the idea and moved on to work on other films.

10. Rush Hour 4

The duo of Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker sure has been a favourite for many movie fans since the first Rush Hour in 1998. The Rush Hour series was mostly known for both detectives, Lee and James Carter, showing off their fighting moves to take down the bad guys.

Rush Hour 3 was the last film of the series in 2007 but there have been many rumours both Chan and Tucker will come back as Lee and Carter in a fourth installment.

It is believed a fourth film might actually happen after Chan said in a radio interview last October that he has signed up after reading the script but will only do it if Tucker comes back as well.

Sylvester Stallone Responds To Report That He Raped A 16-Year-Old In 1986

Sylvester Stallone Responds To Report That He Raped A 16-Year-Old In 1986

 

 

Actor Sylvester Stallone and his bodyguard reportedly jointly sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl in 1986. The actor, now 71, was 40 at the time.

The news comes via a police report. The detailed report was filed shortly after the incident. The victim, whose name is omitted from the report, said the assault occurred at a Las Vegas hotel.

The 16-year-old was invited to Stallone's hotel room, and they had sex. He then asked her if she had ever had sex with two men at the same time, and his bodyguard Michael "Mike" De Luca, who had been waiting in the bathroom, joined in and sexually assaulted her at the same time as Stallone did.

The men reportedly pressured the minor to keep the incident a secret, with Stallone threatening to "beat her head in" if she told anyone.

 

Even though the teenager filed a police report, Stallone did not face much punishment, as she signed a "no prosecution" form. "I'm humiliated and ashamed, but I don't want to prosecute," she reportedly said at the time.

You can read the full police report on the Daily Mail.

Stallone's spokeswoman, Michelle Bega, has spoke about the rape allegation earlier today.

"This is a ridiculous, categorically false story," Bega told TMZ. "No one was ever aware of this story until it was published today, including Mr. Stallone. At no time was Mr. Stallone ever contacted by authorities or anyone else regarding this matter."

This is not the only abuse accusation against Sylvester Stallone. As the Daily Mail notes, Stallone's half-sister Toni-Ann Filiti accused Stallone of raping and sexually assaulting her in 1987. She threatened to sue her half-brother, but he settled by paying her off before the case went to court. Filiti passed away in 2012.

 


Bruce Willis Is Returning As John McClane For A New 'Die Hard' Movie

Bruce Willis Is Returning As John McClane For A New 'Die Hard' Movie

 

It has been confirmed Bruce Willis will return as John McClane for a new Die Hard film.

He will make his comeback in 'part-prequel, part-sequel' Die Hard: Year One.

Digital Spy reports, Willis, has been confirmed to reprise his role in the present day. Willis last played the character in 2013's A Good Day To Die Hard.

Credit: 20th Century Fox

The movie will see McClane return as a rookie police officer in the early 1980s, with the rest of the film set in the present day.

Ahead of that film's release, Willis said: "I'm really pleased to continue to be asked back to do other versions and other incarnations of Die Hard. The first one really is... that's all there is. Everything else is just trying to be as good as that film."

Although director Len Wiseman has said it would be a struggle finding someone to play a younger Willis.

 

https://twitter.com/DieHard/status/342674941545701376

https://twitter.com/DieHard/status/345210475740540928

In an interview with Christina Radish, director Len Wiseman had this to say: "The reason I say prequel/sequel is because I wasn't going to do it without Bruce. I'm also not going to do it with Bruce being a cameo bookend gimmick.

"Its really working into the plot, with the 70s having ramifications on present-day Bruce. It inter-cuts in a very fun, imaginative way with present-day John McClane.

"The film itself will take place on New Years Eve 1979, so trying to gear things towards that would be fun, if we could come out around the same time, but these movies take their own paths."

The last movie in the series A Good Day to Die Hard got a lot of stick from critics upon release four years ago, despite that it still made more than $300 million worldwide by the time of its release on home video.

Fun fact: Bruce Willis was actually pretty lucky to be able to take the role in the first film as Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Burt Reynolds and Richard Gere all turned it down. The more you know.


ROBERT DENIRO SAYS HE MAKES SHITTY MOVIES BECAUSE HIS WIFE SPENDS ALL HIS MONEY

ROBERT DENIRO SAYS HE MAKES SHITTY MOVIES BECAUSE HIS WIFE SPENDS ALL HIS MONEY

Trouble is brewing over Grace Hightower’s coffee company. We’re told that her husband, Robert De Niro — who is a major investor in the firm — is steamed because the 5-year-old Grace Hightower & Coffees of Rwanda brand is turning into a money pit.

We’re told that Hightower has frustrated business associates — as well as the legendary actor — by dithering over simple decisions, and “changing her mind about how to run the business depending on who she spoke to last.”

A source tells us that, in a moment of frustration, De Niro boiled over while bickering with Hightower in public at a Manhattan bar, telling her, “I wouldn’t have to keep making shitty movies if you didn’t spend all my money!”

In recent years, comedians such as Joel McHale have teased De Niro over his choice of roles, some of which — such as those in “Dirty Grandpa,” “Grudge Match” and “The Intern” — may not live up to his status as the multi-Oscar-winning actor from “Raging Bull,” “Taxi Driver” and “The Godfather: Part II.”

Meanwhile, defenders of Hightower point to a slew of establishments that carry her coffee, including the Ace Hotel, the Breslin, Salvation Burger, Salvation Taco, White Gold, the Williamsburg Hotel and De Niro’s raft of hotels and restaurants, including the Greenwich Hotel and the Nobu chain.

The company, which sources its fair trade beans in Rwanda, has parted ways with its biggest distributor, Whole Foods.

Meanwhile, the coffee giant Illy is a major sponsor of De Niro’s Tribeca Film Festival.

A rep said, “Your story is based on something that never happened from a source who has an ax to grind.”


Shia Labeouf's Anti-Trump Camera Exhibit Immediately Catches Concerning Behavior

Shia Labeouf's Anti-Trump Camera Exhibit Immediately Catches Concerning Behavior

Actor Shia Labeouf set up a camera that is streaming live for protesters to denounce President Trump, but some of the behavior caught on camera is alarming. The idea of the art exhibit is to look into the camera attached to the El Rey Theater and read the words written above as the feed streams live online.

It is a collaboration between actor Shia Labeouf and artists to protest President Trump and his policies. However, just as it did in New York, a few days in, the project is already causing problems. In one video you can see a young man flash a gun. In another video, Trump supporters come speeding in on motorcycles, burning rubber. And the two sides are already clashing.

He announced Thursday that gunshots forced him to pull the plug at the new site.

“We have taken the stream down after shots were reported in the area. The safety of everybody participating in our project is paramount,” he tweeted Thursday morning.

LaBeouf took his controversial “He Will Not Divide Us” webcam exhibit to Albuquerque after Queens’ Museum of the Moving Image shut it down Feb. 10, saying it became a “flashpoint of violence.”

How A Viral Video Helped Leonardo DiCaprio Nail His Funniest Scene Ever

How A Viral Video Helped Leonardo DiCaprio Nail His Funniest Scene Ever

 

 

f6f03c435821784a10460d24386ae26a1

Today is Leonardo DiCaprio's birthday, so I thought it was the perfect time to throw back to the best scene from his best film. And it IS his best film, we'll have no arguments here.

The Quaaludes binge scene is definitely the funniest and most bizarre in the 'Wolf of Wall Street' - and it's got a lot of competition. Leo nailed this, no questions. And what would you expect? The guy is an acting genius. If you're wondering how he nailed, well, he got a bit of help there...

Leo actually sat down and talked about what it was like to take Quaaludes to excess with the real-life Jordan Belfort.

But speaking in a press conference before the film was released, Leo said that the bulk of his research actually came from watching the viral YouTube hit, 'Drunkest Guy in the World'.

He said: "A lot of the research that I did really came from watching this one video on loop. It's called 'The Drunkest Guy in the World'. It's a man trying to get a beer, but his body doesn't quite work. That was a huge inspiration to me."

In case you've forgotten the video in question, here it is:

That is some dedication to Budweiser. I hope he got a job in their advertising department after this. I'm with Leo, tbf, I think this guy is a huge inspiration to all of us.

And, in case you were wondering what they were snorting in the film, it was vitamin D. In Jonah Hill's case, so much vitamin D powder that he ended up in hospital with bronchitis.

When was the last time you saw Haley Bennett and Jennifer Lawrence in the same room..just saying.

As the star of The Girl on the Train, Bennett, is cast into the spotlight, people are noticing her stark resemblance to Hunger Games heroine Jennifer Lawrence.

Bennett has had roles in Marley & Me and The Equalizer but her most recent venture alongside Emily Blunt is set to be her biggest yet.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BKq-YVIgxBe/

Hmm what do we think?

Not sure whether it’s just the side gaze and sepia, but I definitely see a resemblance here.

Twitter has a lot to say on this:

This one is just creepy.

oooh this is harsh…

At the end of the day, nothing will freak me out more than the similarity between Emily Blunt, Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel.

Matthew McConaughey Wants To Save ‘True Detective’ By Returning As Rust Cohle In Season 3

Matthew McConaughey Wants To Save ‘True Detective’ By Returning As Rust Cohle In Season 3

 

rust-cohle[1]

Do you miss Rust Cohle’s nihilistic ruminations about life, death and the fourth dimension? Of course you do. And so does Matthew McConaughey who played Rustin “Rust” Cohle in Season 1 of True Detective.

“I miss Rust Cohle, man,” McConaughey confessed on the Rich Eisen Show. “I miss watching him on Sunday nights.”

McConaughey reminisced about portraying everyone’s favorite philosophical handlebar-mustachioed homicide investigator.

“I was a happy man when I made that for six months, because I was on my own island,” the actor said. “Luckily my wife put up with me.”

When asked about reprising his role as Rust, the Academy Award-winning actor said, “It would have to be the right context, the right way.”

So you’re saying that time is a flat circle where events will continually repeat over and over again, thus then another amazing season of True Detective?

YES!

“That thing—when I read [the original script] I knew in 20 minutes if I can play this guy, Rustin Cohle, I’m in,” McConaughey told Eisen.

The first season of True Detective received outstanding reviews from critics and viewers alike. The drama won numerous awards. Then Season 2 happened.

No more Rust Cohle. No more Woody Harrelson as Detective Martin Hart. No more accolades.

The second season of the Nic Pizzolatto-created show featuring Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Colin Farrell was a disaster. It was so bad that it caused HBO to change course and put Season 3 on the back-burner and maybe even end the series. However, with McConaughey back in the saddle as Rust, HBO can say, “fuck the anthology format,” and make True Detective great again.

Shia LaBeouf had a pretty straightforward trajectory for a Disney child star, until recently when, like so many Disney stars before him, he changed. Aside from acting in the occasional film here and there (hi one person on Smoshpit.com who watchedNymphomaniac, for everyone else carry on), this Transformer, actor in disguise (eke!) insists on doing art projects that we can't for the life of us understand. While they all feel like publicity stunts meant to tie into an upcoming flick, they're apparently not. Here are some of the random things besides acting that Shia LaBeouf feels compelled to do.

#AllMyMovies

In 2015, Shia LaBeouf had a marathon movie screening of all his films. Excuse me, in 2015 Shia LaBeouf did a piece of performance art where he invited visitors to join him in watching "…all his movies consecutively in reverse chronological order". We're not sure of the intended effect of this, but the live-streamed "performance" spawned lots of great Shia LaGifs. (That's not a good pun, you say? Yes, you're right.)

 

Hitchhiking for "Art"

https://www.instagram.com/p/BGyWAg8tofh/

This month, LaBeouf will be traveling the country as part his #TakeMeAnywhere performance art piece. Here's the idea: you can find Shia using the GPS coordinates he tweets or by going to his #TakeMeAnywhere website. If you find him, you can take him anywhere you want. So far he's been in Florida, Colorado, Pennsylvania and a whole bunch of other places just "making friends" and "finding meaning" in life, according to Time. In one meetup with fans, LaBeouf referred to himself as a mirror wanting to put out good so that good would reflect back on him.

 

"Elastic Heart"

shia-labeouf-elastic-heart1[1]

Yup, we’ve all seen the video. People are still commenting on it with such intelligent contributions as: "isnt she like 13? she looks like that girl from dance moms". That was posted literally 33 minutes ago as I write this in June of 2016. We would give a used BluRay copy of Transformers to know how Shia LaBeouf ended up in that music video. We’re assuming there’s a Facebook messenger group for celebs to swap obsessed-fan horror stories and sees who’s down for a random music video appearance.

 

#TouchMyHeart

Shia LaBeouf and his frequent art project collaborators Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner sat in a gallery in Liverpool for four days from 11am-6pm to field calls from around the world. Together the collective spoke with over one thousand people. The public was able to watch this all take place through live stream and through live right-in-front-of-you real life stream. I don’t get it (and please, please tell me if you do).

#IAmSorry

shia-labeouf-iamsorry[1]

LaBeouf sat in an LA gallery and allowed visitors one by one to come in to an empty room with him and just... well... it’s not exactly clear. Wearing a bag over his head stating "I am not famous anymore" and in full tux attire, Shia would silently sit there. A few visitors stated that he was crying under the bag. What does it all mean?!

Hour Long Silent Interview

#INTERVIEW from LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner on Vimeo.

For a Dazed magazine story in 2014, our favorite hole-digger (memba Holes??) filmed an hour-long sit-down interview with a writer while they both wore GoPros on their heads. My mind is thoroughly boggled as I do not have the proper art words to describe what this was supposed to achieve. Or maybe art isn't supposed to "achieve" anything and we're merely pawns in this game called life, destined to flounder into the abyss until our final slumber.

People Are Shitting On Leonardo DiCaprio For Traveling 8,000+ Miles In A Private Jet To Accept ‘Eco-Friendly’ Award

People Are Shitting On Leonardo DiCaprio For Traveling 8,000+ Miles In A Private Jet To Accept ‘Eco-Friendly’ Award

You may look up to Leonardo DiCaprio for being an A-list actor, for being rich and famous and getting to slay supermodel poon at the snap of his fingers, but did you know that he’s also just like you and me? Sure! Leonardo DiCaprio is as big a hypocrite as anyone else, because when faced with the decision “Do I take my fancy private plane all by myself to accept this eco-friendly award, or do I risk sitting next to a baby in coach?” he picks what anyone else would – the private jet.

Who would pick sitting coach over sitting private leather couch? No one, obviously…but when everyone in the world knows your name and you dedicated your Oscar acceptance speech to global warming, don’t be surprised when people call you out for your bullshit:

On his way to collect an award for environmental campaigning, you’d imagine that Leonardo DiCaprio would be keen to burnish his green credentials.

However, as an A-list actor, he also has a busy schedule – so the star shunned more eco-friendly methods of transport to jump on to a private jet from Cannes to New York.

Having received his green award, the actor then flew straight back to France the following day – a round trip of 8,000 air miles.(via)

DiCaprio’s flight did not go unnoticed by top environmental campaign groups, as well as people on Twitter who are always chomping at the bit to point out hypocrisy:

Andrew Pendleton, of campaign group Friends of the Earth, said of DiCaprio’s actions: ‘It never looks good when a high-profile advocate for action on climate change like DiCaprio hops on a private jet.

‘It’s why we get disillusioned about people in the public eye.’(via)

https://twitter.com/NeverHillary75/status/723618009793835008?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

DiCaprio’s reps have yet to comment on the matter, however according to Daily Mail a source close to DiCaprio stated that “He did not book any flights. The flights were already planned – he hitched a ride. It was the only way for him to attend both events.”

Surreeeeee they were. Or he could’ve just chosen one event over the other, something that us peasants have to do when faced with the choice of blowing $2,000 on airfare or just fecking off.

Ah, the lives of the rich and famous…what struggles (not).

Jennifer Lawrence Says She Hasn’t Felt The Touch Of A Man In A Really Long Time - Time To Make Your Move

Jennifer Lawrence Says She Hasn’t Felt The Touch Of A Man In A Really Long Time - Time To Make Your Move

Look, I’ll start by saying this: Jennifer Lawrence seems chill AF. But I don’t know… I’m starting to get a weird vibe. Like, a crazy, cat-lady vibe. I don’t want to have a crazy cat-lady vibe about Jennifer Lawrence because, like I said, she seems chill AF.

It feels weird to say this, but I’m starting to really feel bad for an A-list movie star who makes millions and millions of dollars a year.  Even though she has it all — kick-ass career, lots of money, opportunity at literally every doorstep — she sure talks a lot to the press about how lonely and single she is. Just the other week she allegedly complained about how no one asks her out on a Saturday night.

At the premiere of A Beautiful Planet on Thursday night, she dished to A.J. Calloway just how sad and single she is.

“Really?” she laughed. “What dating life?”

“None?”

“No.”

“Are you kidding me?”

“No, I’m not, it’s really sad,” she lamented. “I haven’t felt the touch of a man in … “

 

Come on now, J.Law! You gotta grab life by the horns and start to own it. Chill with the sob story about how lousy your dating life is and put yourself out there. No excuses to not have a social life than pull the sad card that it’s “hard” because of your movie career. It’s getting pathetic. Just look at this quote from last week:

“She’s not exactly a social butterfly. She’s in a slump and feels hopeless, and that puts out a bad vibe. It’s just a vicious cycle of being single.”

Slumps suck, but the only way to get out of them is putting yourself out there.

 

Wise words , “If she can’t find a guy there is probably a very good reason for that and the reason is probably because she sucks.” You don’t want people to think you suck, do you Jenn? Because people are going to start thinking you suck. There’s a gazillion dudes in the universe who would take you out to Chick-Fil-A for a spicy chicken sandwich and tell you about the time they ate mushrooms at a Black Keys concert.

End the great J.Law drought of 2016. It’s in humanity’s best interest.

Mark Hamill Has Zero Fucks Left To Give And Is Now Signing The Most Hilarious Autographs In Hollywood

 

Mark Hamill Has Zero Fucks Left To Give And Is Now Signing The Most Hilarious Autographs In Hollywood

Mark Hamill played the most iconic young hero in the history of Hollywood when he teamed up with George Lucas to play Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy. His career didn’t exactly keep the same ‘Hollywood Mega Star’ trajectory after filming of Return of the Jedi wrapped up, but he’s still remained one of the most well known actors in the world all due to his role as Luke Skywalker.

I could be wrong here, but I’d assume that if I was an actor and my entire career was built upon one character that millions and millions of obsessed fan boys and girls were in love with, well after a while that attention would become a little cumbersome. I’m guessing that, like Mark Hamill, I’d have zero fucks left to give after decades of signing autographs. Because when you see these photos below of autographs written by Mark Hamill you’ll fully understand that he’s an actor with ZERO fucks to give (via Imgur):

 
 
 
 

I just wonder how long it’s been since Mark Hamill last had a single fuck to give. Also, I’d die to see him sign an autograph on this card because it seems like something he’d really be into:

Here’s Your Chance, Guys, Jennifer Lawrence Reportedly ‘Very Lonely Every Saturday Night’

Here’s Your Chance, Guys, Jennifer Lawrence Reportedly ‘Very Lonely Every Saturday Night’

Speaking of women who’ve played Mystique in the X-Men movies, it seems that, if reports are true, our girl Jennifer Lawrence is really struggling to find the right guy. Or any guy, for that matter.

This is it. This is our chance, guys. Because according to a new report there’s never been a better opportunity for some man, AKA one of us, to make a move and sweep Lawrence off of her feet.

According to Star (via Celebitchy)…

Jennifer Lawrence is one of the most sought-after women in Hollywood – but she’s feeling like persona non grata when it comes to love. The blonde beauty, 25, was overheard dishing all the gritty details to a friend over cappuccino at Alfred Coffee + Kitchen in Hollywood on March 7.

“Jen was talking to her friend about how Chris [Martin] was the last guy she hooked up with – and that was seven months ago!” reports the witness. “She said that she knows she could find random hookups, but she wants someone she cares about.”

Jennifer has opened up about her lack of luck in finding love. “No one ever asks me out,” she admitted. “I am very lonely every Saturday night.”

But part of the problem is her own bad attitude, says a friend: “She’s not exactly a social butterfly. She’s in a slump and feels hopeless, and that puts out a bad vibe. It’s just a vicious cycle of being single.”

jim carrey chance dumb and dumber hopeful so youre telling me theres a chance

But don’t just take their word for it. Lawrence herself pretty much says the same thing to Harper’s Bazaar (via E! News)…

“Sex? Someone explain to me what it is,” she jokes.

Even though everyone wants to be the Joy star’s best friend, she’s the first to admit that she’s probably a “social disappointment.”

“I don’t really stay out late. I’m kind of a bummer. I’m a nana,” she explains. “It’s hard to get me out, and when I do go out I don’t really stay out late. If I do stay out late and I’m partying hard, I will throw up. I don’t have the tolerance to black out; I just start puking.”

Swoon.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard Lawrence talk about her lack of sex either so we know there are some kernels of truth to these stories.

What is she now, 25? A girl as good-looking, talented, rich and funny as her can’t score a good date on a Saturday night? I think you should make one of those promposal-type videos only instead of for prom just make it for a simple night out on the town. I’m sure she would totally go for it, right?

10 BLATANTLY OBVIOUS TV RECASTS THEY THOUGHT THEY COULD GET BY US

Films has surely had some of its biggest original characters recast, but the same goes for TV, only some of these blatantly obvious TV recasts they thought could actually get by us. Well, we noticed, and now we're calling them out on their obscene behavior. How stupid do they think the American people are? Well, Trump is a trending topic, so maybe we do need to show you these TV recasts for you to actually get them. Let us know if you caught all of these.

Frank Costanza, "Seinfeld" - Recast John Randolph for Jerry Stiller
Entertainment, TV, TV Recast That Were Noticable, Obvious TV Recast
A few of the "Seinfeld" parents were amongst the obviously recast TV characters, including John Randolph, the original Frank Costanza, who was replaced by the great Jerry Stiller.

Laurie Forman, "That '70s Show" - Recast Lisa Robin Kelly for Christina Moore
Entertainment, TV, TV Recast That Were Noticable, Obvious TV Recast
Eric Forman, played by Topher Grace, always had a hot, older sister, but she wasn't always around. Lisa Robin Kelly's role on "That '70s Show" stopped around the third season when she completely disappeared before returning again a couple seasons later. The following sixth season, she was recast by Christina Moore. Kelly died at the age of 43 in 2013 after struggling with drug addiction.

Jenna DeCarlo, "30 Rock" - Recast Rachel Dratch for Jane Krakowski
Entertainment, TV, TV Recast That Were Noticable, Obvious TV Recast
The beloved "SNL" cast member Rachel Dratch started out in the role of Jenna across from other "SNL" stars, Tina Fey and Tracy Morgan, on NBC's "30 Rock" during the pilot. That was before getting recast for Jane Krakowski, the beautiful, blonde bimbo we all grew to love, and we're okay with this swap-out. It's all good, as Dratch was brought in to star in another role on the show. Everybody wins, especially us.

Marta Estrella, "Arrested Development" - Recast Leonor Varela for Patricia Velasquez
Entertainment, TV, TV Recast That Were Noticable, Obvious TV Recast
The hit cancelled show switched out their Martas, the love interest of Jason Bateman's character, Michael Bluth. Her role was tossed around between Leonor Varela and Patricia Velasquez in season one. The show also swapped out their Ann Veals, George Michael's (Michael Cera) girlfriend throughout the early parts of "Arrested Development" before she went on to get left by Gob at the altar. The role of Ann was originally played by Alessandra Torresani in season one, then played by Mae Whitman for the remaining seasons.

Aunt Vivian, "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" - Recast Janet Hubert-Whitten for Daphne Reid
Entertainment, TV, TV Recast That Were Noticable, Obvious TV Recast
It seems incredibly racist to just put a black woman in to replace another black woman, but this is show business, people! After having a darker-skinned African-American mother, Will Smith was surprisingly granted a very different African-American mother halfway through the series of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." Maybe they didn't think we'd notice. We noticed.

Harriet Winslow, "Family Matters" - Recast Jo Marie Payton-Noble for Judy Ann Elder
Entertainment, TV, TV Recast That Were Noticable, Obvious TV Recast
Urkel and the rest of "Family Matters" tried to pull on a quick one on us with the old late-in-the-game switcheroo of Mrs. Harriet Wilson. Played originally by Jo Marie Payton-Noble for the entirety of the series up until 1997, she left as Judy Ann Elder entered before the show quit in '98. Must've been tough that she couldn't go one more year. Maybe those "Key & Peele" sketches are true.

Daario Naharis, "Game of Thrones" - Recast Ed Skrein for Michael Huisman
Entertainment, TV, TV Recast That Were Noticable, Obvious TV Recast
Fans might've been thrown when Ed Skrein was replaced by a darker, handsomer Michael Huisman, but then again that show has so many characters it seems it's hard to keep track.
The HBO fantasy series recast the role for season four, going from the long-haired look to the chiseled, bearded type. At least they got the skin tone right.

Becky, "Roseanne" - Recast Lecy Goranson for Sarah Chalke
Entertainment, TV, TV Recast That Were Noticable, Obvious TV Recast
People might wonder how you can stick with a character when the actress playing it is constantly ping-ponging back and forth. Originally played by Lecy Goranson, the role went to Sarah Chalke in its fifth season so she could attend college. Goranson returned in the eighth season before leaving again in the ninth, swapping back and forth the role with Chalke, then finally letting her finish out the storyline for Becky. Luckily, the show poked fun at this by breaking the fourth wall.

Kaitlin Cooper, "The O.C." - Recast Shailene Woodley for Willa Holland
Entertainment, TV, TV Recast That Were Noticable, Obvious TV Recast
Without doing a time jump in the series, "The O.C." creator, Josh Schwartz, decided to make small-time side character, Kaitlin Cooper, into the show's new thing towards the finale to save the show after the departure of Mischa Barton. Come on. No girl grows up that quickly. It worked though, kind of.

Mandy Milkovich, "Shameless" - Recast Jane Levy for Emma Greenwell
Entertainment, TV, TV Recast That Were Noticable, Obvious TV Recast
Jane Levy was the hardcore chick in season one of "Shameless," Ian and Lip's little groupie, but she was then moved over to "Suburgatory," which allowed Showtime to recast the role of Mandy with Emma Greenwell. This worked out for us, as we have enjoyed four years of Mandy's topless moments. The joke's on Levy, as "Suburgatory" only went for three years, but "Shameless" is still rolling.
