Agent Gives Hollywood Edgy Look With 'Real' People

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — You couldn't miss Hollywood talent agent Sid Levin's office in the old days: It wasn't much bigger than a closet and it was sometimes filled with burglars, bank robbers and gang members, all trying to break into the movies. These days you'll find everyone from Gulf War veterans to a 15-time world arm-wrestling champion there, and Levin didn't bring them in for protection. They're looking to be movie stars, too. In a town where seemingly everyone wants to be a star, but few look like James Franco or Scarlett Johansson , Levin is the talent agent who represents t... more

Movie Review: ’The Giver’

LOS ANGELES (AP) — An agreeable young adult riff on Orwell — via "Logan's Run" — topped with the kind of magic-transformative baloney that passes for an ending in too many otherwise-fine Hollywood adventures, Phillip Noyce's "The Giver" greets a man-made Utopia with an eternal question: "If you can't feel, what's the point?" Lois Lowry's 1993 Newbery Medal-winning source novel has been substantially altered here, mostly in ways that nudge it toward other chosen-one teen fantasies set in restrictive futuristic worlds ("Divergent" being one of the most recent). The changes, which include ... more

Movie Review: 'Let's Be Cops'

LOS ANGELES (AP) — At one point during "Let's Be Cops," actor Damon Wayans Jr . has a scene in which a huge naked man's groin is inches from his face. That's a good approximation of what filmgoers will experience during this witless high-concept comedy featuring him and his co-star on Fox sitcom New Girl, Jake Johnson , who must be newly appreciating the sophistication of the small screen. In case you didn't deduce it from the title, the film concerns two stumblebums who decide to impersonate policemen for kicks. They are 30-year-olds Ryan (Johnson) , a former college athlete and mostly unemployed actor w... more

Movie Review: ‘The Expendables 3’

In its third incarnation, "The Expendables" has become, well, expendable. Despite some ruthless new tactics, there's no saving "The Expendables 3," the overpopulated third outing of Sylvester Stallone's all-star action ensemble. Perhaps recognizing its own mortality, "Expendables 3" goes for a kitchen-sink approach. There's the injection of AARP-eligible action stars like Wesley Snipes , Mel Gibson and Harrison Ford into the already bursting-at-the-seams cast, as well the addition of some junior Expendables. Those extra bodies don't add any oomph to the stiff dialogue or predictable plot. After liber... more

NEW YORK (AP) — Lauren Bacall , the slinky, sultry-voiced actress who created on-screen magic with Humphrey Bogart in " To Have and Have Not" and "The Big Sleep" and off-screen magic in one of Hollywood's most storied marriages, died Tuesday at age 89. Bacall, whose long career brought two Tonys and a special Oscar, died in New York. The managing partner of the Humphrey Bogart Estate, Robbert J.F. de Klerk , said that Bacall died at home, but declined to give further details. Bacall's son Stephen Bogart confirmed his mother's death to de Klerk . She was among the last of the old-fa... more
