Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel is pulling out all the stops for his post-Oscars special, airing on February 26. So far he’s managed to book the one and only Oprah Winfrey, among a sea of many other A-listers set to stop by.
Jessica Biel, Jason Bateman, JJ Abrams, Steven Tyler, Tyler Perry, Edward Norton, Colin Farrell and Ryan Philippe have all been confirmed, People.com reports. The annual post-show fete, “Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Academy Awards,” will also include appearances from Meryl Streep, George Clooney and Martin Scorsese, as well as a performance from Coldplay, EW.com adds. Oscar host Billy Crystal will also make an appearance.
Oscar Isaac is prepping for one very awesome 2012. His Madonna-directed film, “W.E.,” opens next week and he’s about to start filming the Coen Brothers' next project, “Inside Llewyn Davis,” where he plays the title character.
And in a sea of complicated and unusual projects, Oscar is also set to star in the Bourne franchise reboot, “The Bourne Legacy,” alongside choice talent like Jeremy Renner (oh, you know, the new Matt Damon), Ed Norton, Rachel Weisz and Joan Allen.
When MTV News recently caught up with the actor at the premiere for “W.E.” in New York City, he seemed genuinely excited for the highly anticipated "Bourne" reboot, set to hit a cineplex near you this August.
"Kardashians" star and Kourtney’s baby daddy Scott Disick has been given the co-sign by "American Psycho" writer Bret Easton Ellis to inhabit the skin of Patrick Bateman, a role made famous by Batman himself, Christian Bale.
After news broke of a proposed remake of the 2000 film, as reported by Variety this week, Scott, who pretty much is the living embodiment of the Big Apple yuppie/serial killer/investment banker in look, charisma and style, took to Twitter to pitch himself as the perfect leading man for the leading role.
It’s safe to say that James Bond himself, "Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" star Daniel Craig, isn’t Tivo-ing "Keeping Up With The Kardashians." The actor recently chatted with British GQ and had these words for the reality stars that may leave them both shaken and stirred.
"Look at the Kardashians, they're worth millions," he said, according to E! Online. "I don't think they were that badly off [financially] to begin with but now look at them. You see that and you think, 'What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f--king idiot on television and then you'll pay me millions?'"
Peter Bishop has it pretty easy. Well, actually, it's Joshua Jackson that has it pretty easy. You see, he's the only guy on "Fringe" who doesn't have to play like a million different versions of his character on the show.
And he's not complaining.
"I mean, I can see the fun that everyone's having with their doppelgangers. But I'm not gonna lie, the extra six weeks off this summer was pretty awesome," he joked in an interview with MTV News. "So, while I was sitting there on vacation, I was not thinking to myself, 'Gosh, I wish I was having a conversation with myself right now as a different version of me.' It seems like it would be fun once and then a bit of a pain in the ass after that, so I'm not terribly jealous."
As Peter Bishop tries to work back into the fold on "Fringe," he's now struggling to figure out how to act around the people he used to know and love. The two relationships he's having the hardest time with are the ones with his mad scientist dad, Walter, and his detective lady love, Olivia. Joshua Jackson explained to us how he thinks it's all going to shake out on "Fringe."
"I think Peter went on an interesting journey for the first three years," Jackson told MTV News during a phone interview recently. "We meet him, he doesn’t want to be there, he doesn’t like his father, this crazy blond girl keeps on trying to rope him into ridiculous things that he doesn’t want to be a part of and he's basically just begging for an exit strategy. He just wants to get out of there."
Out of nowhere, Peter Bishop has been dropped back into the "Fringe"-verse, much to the delight of the show's fans. Without giving away too much, this week's episode, "Novation," sees the back-to-life Bishop struggling to return to the fold that he was once the center of. As he works to convince his girl, Olivia, his dad, Walter, and everyone else for that matter that he's actually Peter Bishop, Walter's deceased son, fans are also trying to figure out just what the deal with Peter is these days.
"He comes back to a pretty bad situation here," Joshua Jackson told MTV News this week about Friday's episode. "One: he's completely confused because the time that you have spent in season four with the characters, for him happened in one second. So the whole thing has to be explained to him. But then he gets dropped out of his world and brought back and all of sudden it's 'ut-oh, it's not good.' It's a bad, anti-'It's A Wonderful Life.'"
It seems that Oscar-winner Charlize Theron's writer character, Mavis, has returned to her small hometown none the wiser in the new trailer for "Young Adult."
Lap dog in tow, Mavis, sporting a Hello Kitty t-shirt, is pretty much the queen of denial. The former "girl you hated in high school" comes home, despite how "gross" it makes her feel, with a big mission. One that seems to perplex everyone, but her. The tagline for "Young Adult" really sums it all up: "Everyone gets older, not everyone grows up."
FROM MTV MOVIES: Robert Pattinson, who will marry Kristen Stewart in "Breaking Dawn" this November, is also set to wed Sarah Gadon in David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis." And, as Gadon revealed to MTV News, it's going be a very interesting journey for the newlyweds in the film.
"I think it's a really interesting film, and I don't want to give away too much, but I think in a really kind of pared-down version of the film, it's about a young millionaire who loses everything in the course of a day," New Class-er Gadon said.
"I play his new wife, so I'm one of the only characters that comes in and out of the story throughout the film. We have breakfast, lunch and dinner together, and those are going to be some interesting meals."
