If you can think of better combinations than Crispin Glover and chicken wings, you're a harder thinker than we are. The "Back to the Future" and "Willard" actor has perfected the ways of weird and wacky on the screen for decades now, and he's showing no signs of slowing down. For his latest trick, Glover appeared as a guest on NextMovie's Chicken Wing Chat to discuss his work in the upcoming movie "Freaky Deaky." You'll get a whole lot more than that when you sink your teeth into some chicken with Glover in the video below.

In case the just-released footage of Eric Stoltz as the original Marty McFly wasn't enough to get you screaming "1.21 gigawatts!," here's some more "Back to the Future" awesomeness: a newly shot "Back to the Future" teaser trailer starring the man who replaced Stoltz behind the wheel of the time-traveling DeLorean, Michael J. Fox.

The new clip was shot to hype the "Back to the Future" reunion taking place at Spike's 2010 Scream Awards on October 19. Cast members Fox, Lea Thompson (Marty's mom Lorraine) and Elizabeth Shue (Marty's girlfriend Jennifer... from "Back to the Future: Part II" and "Part III," but not the original) will gather on stage to celebrate the original film's 25th anniversary.

The new teaser is basically a shot-for-shot remake of the film's original 1985 trailer... but with one very big difference at the end... which you can check out for yourself. Read More...

The saga of Ronald Reagan is certainly a fascinating one. The A-list actor went on to have a pretty okay career in politics. You know, just the 40th president of the United States. No big deal.

The biopic, which carries a $30 million budget and is targeted for a late 2011 release, will be helmed by "Malice" director Jonas McCord, The Hollywood Reporter reveals. He also wrote the script, working from a pair of optioned biographies by bestselling author Paul Kengor: "The Crusader" and "God and Ronald Reagan." McCord admits to not being a fan of the former president, but being intrigued by the project as he learned more about Reagan's early life. The story will open on the 1981 assassination attempt, telling the Gipper's life story through "flashbacks and flash-forwards."

It's all going to hinge on who plays Reagan, of course. And as you might expect, we have a few suggestions... Read More...

We’ve seen veterans like Jeff Bridges, Christopher Walken and Burt Reynolds launch hugely-successful second acts in recent years, reminding fans that they’re talented folks who’ve survived decades in Hollywood and aren’t above laughing at themselves every now and then. But don’t be surprised if the next post-fame comeback is engineered by none other than… Crispin Glover?

A teen star turned blockbuster actor turned indie actor who has found himself at times ostracized by Hollywood, the 45-year-old recently celebrated the biggest opening of his career in Tim Burton’sAlice in Wonderland.” Having seen “Hot Tub Time Machine” recently, I can tell you that he steals every scene he’s in.

But that doesn’t mean he plans on giving up the eccentric, fiercely independent films he’s been making over the last few years.

“My next project is one I’m planning to do at my property in the Czech Republic that I bought six years ago,” revealed Glover, who has spent the last few years filming and touring in support of his surreal movies “What Is It?” and “It is Fine. Everything is Fine!” “There are horse stables next to this chateau that I bought that was built in the 1600s, and in those horse stables I’m making a small sound stage; it’s ready right now to start building sets.” Read More...

Anne Hathaway"Watchmen" may be the toast of fandom, but as far as films not based on comics, Tim Burton's live action/stop-motion hybrid "Alice in Wonderland" is easily one of the most anticipated. To date, the enigmatic director has generated considerable buzz for an inspired casting roster that includes Johnny Depp, Helen Bonham Carter, Crispin Glover, Alan Rickman, Michael Sheen, Christopher Lee and, of course, Anne Hathaway.

Hathaway plays the White Queen alongside Bonham Carter's Red Queen, and according to her it's a role best described by an anecdote. "A friend of mine just gave me a magnet that was a bunny rabbit holding a knife," she recalled. "It said 'Cute but psycho, it evens out.' And that's kind of my character as the White Queen."

Crispin GloverThis has to be a match made in heaven. The Hollywood Reporter announces that Crispin Glover has joined the cast of Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland." Amazingly, these two eccentrics (and I mean that in the best way) have never worked together before, though Glover seems tailor made for Burton's unconventional films. However, Glover is likely to have been brought to the fold by Johnny Depp, who has worked with him in "Who's Eating Gilbert Grape" and "Dead Man." It's a small world after all.

Glover will be playing the Knave of Hearts (joining fellow royals Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter), who is put on trial for stealing the tarts hand-baked by the Queen of Hearts. She's determined to send him to the chopping block for the crime, and Alice and the Mad Hatter are both called upon to defend him. Read More...
