[From Film.com] Richard Griffiths, whose face was instantly known to tens of millions of film fans around the world as the arbitrarily cruel and sadistically bumbling parental figure Uncle Vernon Dursley in the "Harry Potter" films, has died from complications following heart surgery according to Film.com. He was 65. Get More »
Practically every mega-star in Hollywood has gotten animated.
Tom Hanks was a toy. George Clooney was a fox. Eddie Murphy was an ass a donkey. And in the prehistoric adventure "The Croods," Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds play a cavegirl, a caveman and a caveboy, respectively.
We wondered what these stars would look like as animated people rather than as, you know, animals and neanderthals and stuff. Thanks to these 17 portraits, we've replaced our wondering with works of art. Get More »
Daniel Radcliffe -- the world's foremost Harry Potter doppelganger -- poked a little fun at himself recently, filming a mockumentary-style guide to "being Daniel Radcliffe." If we're to believe him, DanRad does everything he can to be the "good" king of iconic movie star: he's intelligent, self-aware, and makes sure he stays grounded, never letting international fame get to his head.

It's a fact of life for an actor/writer/director after doing a movie: Just before the film debuts, you meet with the press and answer questions like, "What was it like to work with Matthew Modine?" and "Before playing a mime, did you meet with any mimes to prepare?" It's a part of the biz, so to speak, and the process is generally unremarkable.
Except when it isn't. Whether the interview becomes awkward, hilarious, charming or weird, it also always becomes magical, as we saw when the Internet exploded this week over Mila Kunis's playful flirtation with a quirky British chap. Get More »
Can you picture a hunchbacked Harry Potter scurrying around a decrepit lab as he brings a mad scientist his various bubbling test tubes and other such knick-knacks? And without glasses, of course!
Soon, the movies will do the picturing for you (though we doubt it will be that extreme), as Daniel Radcliffe is in final negotiations to take on the role of monster maker's assistant Igor in a new version of "Frankenstein," according to Variety.
Based on Mary Shelley's oft-adapted 19th century novel (in which the character of Igor does not appear), this is one of several "Frankenstein" projects in various stages of development at different studios. The Radcliffe "Frankenstein" is setting up its laboratory at Fox, with Paul McGuigan (TV's "Sherlock") on board to direct from a script by Max Landis ("Chronicle"). Get More »
Sundance is in full swing and apparently so is Daniel Radcliffe, as all the buzz out of the annual festival seems to be about his turn as Allen Ginserg in the indie "Kill My Darlings." Or more specifically, about his gay sex scenes.
And Radcliffe really doesn't get the big deal.
"It's interesting that it's deemed shocking," he told MTV News. "For me, there's something very strange about that because we see straight sex scenes all the time. We've seen gay sex scenes before. I don't know why a gay sex scene should be any more shocking than a straight sex scene. Or both of them are equally un-shocking."

Ah, Hanukah! Festival of Lights! A time for Jews everywhere to get together in a spirit of peace, give gifts and sing songs. It's also a time for gentiles everywhere to ask questions like "So... what's the deal with Hanukah?" and "How do you spell Chanukah?" and "Why does it keep moving around the calendar like a celebratory hobo?"
These are good questions; deep questions. And who better to ask than Hollywood's Jewish stars! But who's Jewish? It's no shock that certain actors are from the tribe (shalom, Sasha Baron Cohen!), but Zac Efron? Get More »
If you were ever wondering what Daniel Radcliffe might look like with horns, well, here you go.
Daniel Radcliffe stars in the screen adaptation of Joe Hill's (Stephen King's son, for the record) horror novel about a young man who wakes up from an all-night bender to discover that he now has horns growing out of his head. And that's not even close to being the weirdest thing going down that hazy morning ... Get More »
What does it mean to be cool? It's pretty damn subjective. So when compiling our list of the 25 coolest people making movies right now (somebody had to do it, right?), we accounted for various factors.
These are the actors who not only impress us onscreen (though that helps), but convey a certain genuineness off it, be it at awards shows, on TV appearances or during our own personal experiences interviewing them. They can be multi-talents, also excelling at music, art or writing. And they can make a habit of turning up in hilarious viral videos or even at your local karaoke bar.
But most of all, these are the 25 actors we'd really just like to sit down and have a beer with.
Welcome to NextMovie's 1st annual Cool List – and let us know who makes your own list in the comments section below. Get More »
[From MTV News]Though "Horns" on the surface might seem similar to "Harry Potter"—it's a fantasy novel that tells the story of a young man who discovers he has supernatural powers—it's anything but. That's why Daniel Radcliffe chose to tackle the project when the opportunity arose earlier this year: he wanted to show he shouldn't be pigeonholed. Get More »
