Questions and Answers With Domhnall Gleeson

Getty Images Getty Images

Domhnall Gleeson, Hollywood's newest leading man would like to stress two things: His new movie is super weird, and he's really hungry. Gleeson, 30, leads Richard Curtis' ("Love Actually") quirky new time travel movie, "About Time." Not quirky in that the protagonists wear glasses and have bangs (well, Gleeson's co-star Rachel McAdams has bangs, but she calls it "fringe," so she gets a pass), but that the movie is anything but a typical rom-com.

"It's a bizarre film," Gleeson told NextMovie during a September conversation in New York City. "There's time travel, there's craziness and all the rest, but it's romantic comedy and there's big bits and big comedy and all the rest of it."

Best known for playing Bill Weasley in later installments of the "Harry Potter" series, Gleeson steps up to the plate as Tim in the unconventional new movie, which opens wide on November 8. The year he turns 21, Tim is shocked when his father (played by Bill Nighy) tells him that the men in their family can travel back in time. Throughout his life, Tim learns the do's (spend time with the people you care about) and don'ts (you're not going to come up with a suave opening line when you want to chat up that girl) of time travel, coupling up with Mary (Rachel McAdams) in the meantime. While the movie still maintains the humor and warmth "Love Actually" fans will recognize (and, as Gleeson said, Curtis' "gloriously over the top" sensibilities), "About Time" is ultimately a meditation on family and enjoying the time you're given in this life.

Our conversation with Gleeson, however, is a meditation on the possibilities that time travel would open up, from the ability to avoid soiling oneself to a new ailment that Gleeson dubbed "time-travel bulimia," perhaps out of wishful thinking related to the strict diet the actor is on in preparation for a role.

Which 'Last Vegas' Cast Member Was 'Always Hungover'?

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. However, that saying isn't applicable to "Last Vegas" stars Morgan Freeman, Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro and Kevin Kline as they spilled the beans with an interview with MTV News.

In the movie, the foursome head to Las Vegas to throw an epic bachelor party for the last single member of their posse (Douglas). What happens when you mix four men of advancing age, booze, Viagra, and the bright lights of Sin City? You'll have to buy a ticket to see, but the actors indulged in sharing a few shenanigans from the set. Get More »

A Real-Life Ghost Whisperer Tells Us Which Ghost Movies Are Most Accurate

Buena Vista

Most of the great mysteries of life will never be explained: Where do we come from, why are we here, how does Carrot Top make a living?

But as a special favor to you, readers, we've managed to clear up one of the big ones -- what really happens when we buy the farm?

We talked to author/psychic Mary Ann Winkowski -- a consultant for "The Ghost Whisperer" and the woman Jennifer Love Hewitt's TV character was based on.

Mary Ann filled us in on which movies get it right and which get it dead wrong.

(We also learned there's a ghost hanging out in the NextMovie office, but that's another story.) Get More »

'The Heat' Director Paul Feig Lists His 'Farm Team' of Funny Ladies

Getty Images Getty Images

Paul Feig knows from funny women. The director of "Bridesmaids" and "The Heat" (the latter of which is available on Blu-ray and DVD now), Feig broke the mold of the typically male-dominated realm of ensemble comedies, and proved that studios could make money while also catering to women.

At a dinner party in New York City celebrating the home release of "The Heat," NextMovie was able to chat one-on-one with Feig in a somewhat-quieter corner of the downtown SoHo House. Feig seems to invite the breathless "here's what they wore" recaps more commonly attached to female stars, so here goes: Charcoal three-piece suit, silky indigo necktie peppered with dainty white dots, a crisp white shirt, a purple pocket square bordered by white and coordinating purple socks.

It's not just a commitment to notable ensembles that Feig has in common with his fairer sex counterparts; he said he also tends to see the world from their point of view, saying that when he's tried writing scripts for a guy's guy movie a la "The Hangover," he didn't "have an honest take on it."

Questions and Answers With Paul Giamatti

Getty Images Getty Images

Paul Giamatti has made his name as an actor since the early '90s, and it seems like he's in literally everything these days. For example, he's a Canadian ex-con struggling to make a legitimate living selling Christmas trees alongside Paul Rudd in "All Is Bright" (out in theaters and VOD today), accidentally famous home video-shooter Abraham Zapruder in this weekend's "Parkland," Friar Lawrence in the latest film incarnation of "Romeo and Juliet" (out next week), a slave trader in Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave" (October 18), and the villainous Rhino in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" (due out May 2, 2014).

We got the chance to sit down with Giamatti in New York City prior to the release of "All Is Bright" and talked to him about his numerous upcoming roles, the weirdest time a fan spotted him on the street and the feats of strength he and co-star Paul Rudd did (or didn't) compete in on the set of the movie.

Questions and Answers With Anthony Mackie

Anthony Mackie, who plays a supporting role in this weekend's "Runner Runner," isn't about to tell you whether he appears in "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," but he will recommend lunch digs in Harlem. He's just that kind of guy.

Mackie plays Agent Shavers, a government operative in Costa Rica determined to take down the crooked online gambling site Ivan Block (Ben Affleck) runs out of the country. Unfortunately for Richie Furst (Justin Timberlake), the young climber who latches on as Block's protege, this means his ride may have a violent end.

Mackie took a break from filming "Shelter" in New York City to talk with NextMovie about his deep desire to punch Justin Timberlake, why Jay Z is second-best to him and his deep (overwhelmingly positive) feelings about Red Lobster's cheddar bay biscuits. Get More »

Questions and Answers With Tony Danza

We all know who the boss is at this point, but that doesn't make Tony Danza any less entertaining. The 62-year-old actor has a standout supporting role in "Don Jon," Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut about a Jersey guido (played by Gordon-Levitt, who also wrote the film) who can't stop looking at internet porn even when his girlfriend looks like Scarlett Johansson (literally, she plays the girlfriend). Danza portrays Gordon-Levitt's character's father, a muscled-out, football-loving senior version of his son.

The two worked together nearly 20 years ago in "Angels in the Outfield," but "Don Jon," which opens with an eye-popping sequence of sexy ladies in pop culture, bears no resemblance to that film's family-friendly fare. This is not one to see with your grandmother, folks.

NextMovie sat down with Danza in New York City prior to the film's September 27 release to talk about "Jersey Shore," Gordon-Levitt's acrobatic abilities and how to take direction from someone you still remember as a tween. Get More »

Andy Samberg And Terry Crews Will Do Anything Together...Anything

Andy Samberg and Terry Crews are no strangers to comedy, or to each other. The two paired up for the new TV cop comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and you can hear both of their voices in "Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2." Unfortunately for Terry, he had to record his lines for the sequel, in which he replaces Mr. T, all alone, while according to Samberg, "Me and Bill [Hader] and Anna [Faris], we were hanging out all the time in the studio...Terry, good luck buddy!"

Questions and Answers With the 'Kings of Summer'

CBS Films CBS Films

Summer is officially over, but one of the best indie releases of the season reigns supreme. "Kings of Summer," out on DVD September 24, charmed audiences with its portrayal of teenage angst and mostly-innocent rebellion. Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso and Moises Aria, all fairly new to the feature film scene, are those titular kings, high schoolers who escape the chafing grip of their parents and opt to build an elaborate fort and live off the land, trying their hand at catching animals (clandestinely buying food at Boston Market ends up being a better foraging technique), wooing their crushes (to mixed result) and letting loose in wild dances on top of giant, abandoned pipes (unqualified success).

Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and boasting Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally and Alison Brie in supporting roles, audiences and critics alike embraced the movie as a representation of the listless yet driven mentality of the high schooler in summertime repose.

Aria, Basso and Robinson took the time to call us up and talk to us about what exactly they did this "Summer," a spirited debate about the varying quality of the "Expendables" franchise and their favorite coming of age movies. Get More »

Bill Hader and Anna Faris' Hilarity Can't Be Contained in 'Cloudy 2' Interview

When we interviewed Bill Hader and Anna Faris for "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2," the sequel to the animated hit, we were prepared for funny. Heck, we were prepared for really funny. After all, the two stars have proven their comedy chops, Hader with his incredible characters from "Saturday Night Live," and Faris with her memorable performances dating back to the "Scary Movie" series. But we were not prepared for the side-splitting, can't-breathe-because-I'm-busy-laughing hilarity they brought to the table. Get More »
