Ryan Kwanten Admits He’s A Masochist

“I’m a huge fan of Westerns. It was originally pitched to me like that, so I was gleefully rubbing my hands together, flipping through the script. I realized pretty quickly on that even though my character is called Shane Cooper—after ‘Shane’ and Gary Cooper—he didn’t really have the iconic quality that a classic Western hero has. He’s very fallible. I mean, in the first frame, he’s forgotten his gun—this isn’t exactly a Clint Eastwood gun slinging guy who takes down any posse. I felt like he was more relatable, so everytime he’s knocked down, you’re hoping he gets back up again. I love it. Really and truly. My friends will attest to the fact I’m very much a masochist at heart.”

—”True Blood” eye candy Ryan Kwanten talks about his new movie, “Red Hill,” a role he says he took to show he could be something besides Jason Stackhouse. But wait, Jason is a bumbling police officer too, no? [NY Post] Keep reading »

“127 Hours” Leads To Faintings, Seizures, And Panic Attacks

You couldn’t pay me to go see director Danny Boyle’s new movie, “127 Hours,” which stars James Franco as a rock climber who gets trapped under a boulder and has to amputate his own arm. Apparently, the movie gets pretty gruesome—a Daily Mail reviewer called it “the most harrowing bone-breaking and amputation scene in the history of cinema.” Not that I can think of any others. But what’s truly crazy is the number of people who have passed out, vomited, or had seizures during preview screenings. Keep reading »

“I Am A Girl” Documentary Looks Like A Sobfest

If “Babies” had you in tears, then “I Am A Girl” will be a 16 hanky affair. The Australian documentary, which is made possible by philanthropic donations, will show us the lives of 10 girls around the world to illustrate “the simple fact of being born female means you are more likely to be subjected to violence, disease, poverty and disadvantage than any other group on the planet.” Did you know 62 million girls around the world do not go to school? Or that women under age 20 experience half the sexual assaults in the world? I didn’t. “I Am A Girl” is heavy stuff, but important stuff too — especially for us Americans who sometimes need a reminder that in many ways we’ve been really damn fortunate.

Brad Pitt Wants His Kids To Think He’s Cooler Than Spider-Man

“Spider-Man is big in our family. The kids think he’s the coolest. If there was one superhero they would want me to play, that would be the one. I’d score big with them. … I’m sneaking in the boys tonight [to the premiere of 'Megamind']. I think they will like it, but they are tough critics. … Hopefully they will think Dad’s really cool and better than Spider-Man.”

Brad Pitt dishes at the premiere of “Megamind” that he decided to voice a character in the flick because he thought his kids would like it. Ahh, kids. Don’t they realize that Brad trumps Tobey Maguire any day of the week? [People] Keep reading »

Sarah Silverman Wants Lower Expectations For Her Nude Scene

“The movie, I think, is gonna be great because Sarah Polley is incredible. But my body? In all honesty, I would say it’s a lot closer to Kathy Bates in ‘About Schmidt’ than, like, Julianne Moore in ‘Short Cuts.’ I am begging you to lower your expectations! … I’ll tell you what you can expect: a Cream of Wheat–ish texture on the upper thighs, from knee to belly button, I would say in all honesty. And a misshapen upper thigh that actually is not misshapen because there’s probably more like it than not, but it doesn’t look good in jeans.”

Sarah Silverman reacts to all the buzz over her doing a nude scene in the movie “Take This Waltz,” directed by Sarah Polley. All we have to say is—girl, please. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Saw 3D,” “Strange Powers,” “Monsters,” “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest”

I know it’s Halloween weekend and you’ve got costume parties to attend and sexy pirates to manhandle, but just in case you decide you need a break from all that teeth-rotting candy corn and ineffective fright tactics, you can always escape to the movies! Chances are, they’re probably going to be empty anyway except for the die-hard “Saw” fans. So now’s the perfect time to see “Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and the Magnetic Fields” because it’s totally not Halloween-themed and if no one else is there, you can totally throw a little party and talk to the screen. There are other movies coming out too, but I care slightly less about those, so if you want to know more, keep reading! Keep reading »

Ryan Kwanten To Play Charles Manson

Two weeks ago, we told you about a movie in the works called “Manson Girls,” starring Thora Birch and Nikki Blonksy as two young women drawn into the grizzly thrall of Charles Manson. Apparently, there is also a second Manson flick in the works, called “The Family,” the name given to Manson’s followers who committed multiple murders in 1969. And it’s just been announced who will play Charles Manson in the film—Ryan Kwanten, aka Jason Stackhouse on “True Blood.” Keep reading »

Kristen Stewart On Wedding Dress Shopping

“I haven’t put the one on yet. It’s such a big decision. I have a little hand in having a decision–or having an opinion more–but I think it’s pretty much up to Stephenie. I’m not quite sure exactly what it’s going to look like, but it will be beautiful, I’m sure.”

Our “Rocky Horror Picture Show” Memories


Get ready to do the time warp again, because “Rocky Horror Picture Show” is having a real moment. Next Tuesday’s episode of “Glee” will be an homage to the ’70s rock opera that still plays at midnight showings all around the country. Rachel will of course channel Susan Sarandon as Janet. Finn will be her Brad and Kurt will be Riff Raff. Apparently, John Stamos was originally going to be Dr. Frank-N-Furter, but the network wasn’t so comfortable with him signing “Sweet Transvestite.” So Mercedes will do it instead. And that’s not all. Apparently, “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy is in talks to direct a remake of the flick.

Since many members of The Frisky staff have fond “Rocky Horror” memories (will I ever forget the time my car broke down on the way home from a midnight screening and how awkward I felt talking to the tow truck driver while I was dressed as Columbia?), we thought we’d share them after the jump.
