An unheard radio show featuring David Bowie in his 1970s heyday is to be broadcast for the first time. The recording, featuring the legendary musician performing five tracks from his 1973 covers album Pin Ups, was discovered by researcher Nigel Reeve.
The 15-minute tape was recorded in 1973 to promote the album but was not broadcast at the time.
Reeve tells the BBC, "It was in an old tape vault on quarter-inch tape with simply the words 'Radio Show' written on it. This is such a rare find. No one knew of its existence, apart from David and (producer) Ken (Scott). To play it for the first time was quite simply a jaw-dropping moment."
The recording will be broadcast on the BBC's Radio 6 Music on Wednesday (23Oct13).
Clint Eastwood's son Scott is reportedly one of five actors being considered to replace Charlie Hunnam in the upcoming 50 Shades Of Grey adaptation. The Sons of Anarchy actor decided to step away from the lead role earlier this month (Oct13).
Former child star Haley Joel Osment is set to make his return to the big screen with two indie dramas. The Sixth Sense actor took time off to attend New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, but will star in Tusk and Me Him Her, according to Deadline.com.
In Tusk, Osment will play a man on the hunt for his podcast co-host in the Canadian wilderness. The film will be directed by Kevin Smith and is set to start filming North Carolina and Los Angeles in November (13).
The former child actor's role in Me Him Her is currently under wraps, but the film reportedly also features Scott Bakula, Alia Shawkat and Geena Davis.
Suddenly busy Osment is also set to appear on U.S. sitcom Alpha House and the miniseries Spoils Of Babylon, which will debut in January (14).
Rosie Perez is "disgusted" with her make-up free look in new drug trafficking thriller The Counselor after director Ridley Scott forced the actress to remove her cosmetics and mess up her hair to portray a prisoner. The Do The Right Thing star reveals she got all dolled up for her first day of filming in London, but she was immediately sent back to her trailer so she could be given a more stripped down look.
She says, "I look busted and disgusted (in the film)... When I went on the set... I'm Puerto Rican so my hair's important and so... I did my hair all nice and everything.
"(Scott) goes, 'No, you're in prison' and I go, 'What?' and he goes, 'And you gotta take off the make-up.' (He told the movie's make-up artists), 'Put some dark circles under her eyes and make her look ugly.' I go, 'Why? There's women who do their hair in prison!' (But) it was great for the character."
Parks and Recreation has settled back into its familiar groove, with Leslie's (Amy Poehler) struggle to keep her council seat serving as a nice framing device that informs the stories around the office. But no real forward momentum is achieved, primarily because the petty Councilman Jamm (Jon Glaser) ties her up in an obviously manufactured trial about an inappropriate tweet sent from the Parks Dept. Twitter.
For all the talk, we never get to see the offending picture... but it's not a full-on Anthony Weiner, just a racy snapshot of a pair of lips and an eggplant and the caption "See you tonight. Hope you like tongue baths, you big nasty fireman," which, as far as inappropriate tweets go, seems pretty tame. However, it didn't stop Leslie from being railroaded at every opportunity for her negligence by Jamm. Surprisingly, we get Donna (Retta) in a main plot this week, as she proved to be the offending tweet-er, and the trial uncovers some rude things she wrote about Leslie on her personal page. However, for some reason, the conflict between Leslie and Donna clears up through Chris (Rob Lowe), not via a confrontation between Leslie Donna. It would have been nice to see a little bit more of Leslie and Donna alone, since the season (and the show) has been a little Donna-starved, and Donna's frustration at Leslie being "annoying" was solved a bit too simply.
It also continues its parade of guest stars, with the appearance of Tatiana Maslany as Nadia, a doctor from Indianapolis looking to book a park with Tom (Aziz Ansari) and April (Aubrey Plaza). You'd think Tom would have more game after dating Jama Williamson, Natalie Morales, Rashida Jones, and even Jenny Slate as the crazy Mona-Lisa. But, instead, at the sight of Maslany he panics and immediately begins faking a British accent. Maslany is of course best known for her lingual flexibility on Orphan Black, so to see her baffled by Tom's attempt at being dapper (and then, of course, being forced to drop it) feels like a nice reference to that show while still grounding it in character. From there, Tom attempts bribery, stalling, and eventually, outright lying in hopes of charming Nadia, but in the end what wins her over is April's blunt assessment of why she should give him a chance: "You're way out of his league. There's literally no risk for you at all."
The ensemble feels a little light this week, but that may just be due to the lack of Ann and Andy, as almost every other character appears and had something to do. Ron (Nick Offerman) and Ben (Adam Scott) tackle the thrilling subject of estate planning, as we find out that Ron's will is a single sentance he wrote when he was eight (of course it is) and he now has an outrageous amount of money (of course he does). Eventually, Ben must convince Ron to file a real will in order to protect his children. While Ron's reluctant transformation into a family man is sweet, it's also becoming somewhat one-note already, and could be time to switch it up for the character. But if they keep adding great bits like the ongoing accountant/lawyer rivalry between Ben and his attorney, I'll still be laughing. Who knew lawyers hated puns so much?
Questions, Comments, and Concerns:-Ron, on making his first joke: "I don't care for it."-Tom's burgundy suit was pretty fly. Looks like now that Rent-A-Swag is defunct he's got all of those clothes to himself again. -The Anti-Leslie "Committee to Recall Leslie Knope" farting Knope dolls is kind of lame for a show that's this funny.-Leslie's idea to add question mark stickers to "Recall Knope" signs backfires when April gets ahold of them, making every sign around the town read like a hypothetical. Also great: she creates a question mark plastered fascinator in the shape of an exploding firework. -#BitchBoss is obviously an insult, while #BossBitch is a total compliment. #PsychoBoss probably most accurately describes Leslie.-Ron is confident that he will not die at the hand of an accountant, lawyer, or wild boar.-DJ Roomba lives!
Actors Amy Poehler and Adam Scott can add interviewers to their resumes after reuniting Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers to celebrate their classic TV series Hart To Hart. The veteran stars played Jonathan and Jennifer Hart, a wealthy couple moonlighting as amateur detectives, for five years from 1979, and they were brought back together recently for Entertainment Weekly's annual reunion issue.
Series superfans Poehler and Scott sat down with the pair for a filmed interview, which aired on U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America on Thursday (17Oct13), during which Wagner revealed that he and Powers had to battle show producers to keep their characters in a state of loved-up bliss.
He explained, "You know, it's great to be married if it works. We never got into any domestic squabbles (onscreen). They (producers) constantly wanted to have conflict... between us and we fought very hard for that (not to have fights onscreen)."
Powers added, "(We wanted to be) two people who were adults, who were in love with each other and had chosen to be together and were there because of free will."
Poehler and Scott, who are co-stars on U.S. comedy Parks and Recreation, even reenacted the opening credits for Hart to Hart, donning Seventies' garb as they cruised down a highway in an open-top sports car.
British model/actress Kelly Brook is opening a Great Gatsby-themed nightclub. The Celebrity Juice star is teaming up with entrepreneur Nick House, who owns London hotspots Mahiki and Whisky Mist, for her first foray into hospitality with the Steam & Rye bar in the U.K. capital.
The new venue, which will have a Prohibition-style interior inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel, will open in the former Bank Of New York building in the heart of the capital's financial district on 21 November (13).
Brook says, "I have always been inspired by the glamour and opulence of 1940s Americana. This is my first venture into hospitality and we've teamed up to deliver something extraordinary. There's nothing like it in London."
A.C.O.D. reunites funny guy Adam Scott with current Parks & Rec co-star Amy Poehler and Party Down's Jane Lynch to create a sarcastic and realistic rom-com dealing with this generation's detached views of marriage and divorce.The Film ArcadeCarter (Scott) is in his thirties when he realizes that what he thought had been therapy post his parent's separation was actually an author penning a book about children of divorce. Shenanigans ensue and eventually another chronicle of the same type is released about the kid-subjects as they enter their adult lives. Per usual, the film ends with a wedding and everyone's happy (ish.) The real question is: just how true does this hold to those who actually are the offspring of divorced parents? Not every situation is going to be as extreme as the one portrayed in A.C.O.D.—with Carter's parents virtually ruining his childhood—but his issues are somewhat universal to youngsters who witnessed their parent's marriage crumbling.Relationship-wise, Carter is hesitant to enter into a true commitment with his current beau (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and this is attributed to the wayward one that was held between his parents Hugh (Richard Jenkins) and Melissa (Catherine O'Hara).When problems arise and his mother and father, who were once estranged from each other, begin a sexual relationship again, Carter runs away rather than dealing with it. This can also be looked at as a manifestation of his desire to run from any sort of confrontation because of the intense arguments he witnessed as a child.Most situations like Carter's don't end with everyone coming together happily and gracefully, but A.C.O.D. definitely resonates with those actual adult children of divorce.

Daydreaming isn't just for long subway rides and boring days at work anymore. Now your daydreams can help you win over the love of your life and travel to every corner of the earth, learning about the world and having life-changing adevntures. At least that's what appears to happen in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Directed, produced by and starring Ben Stiller, the film endorses taking chances and following your (day)dreams in order to live the life you want.
The film's new international trailer clocks in at three minutes long, and offers audiences the best look yet at the film's plot. Based on James Thurber's 1939 short story, The Sceret Life of Walter Mitty follows the titular character (Stiller), who spends more time imagining adventures than actively participating in his life. However, when his office job is threatened by a missing photograph, Walter Mitty decides to take a chance and go on a quest to solve the mystery. The trailer highlights Walter's journey, from his action-star daydreams about saving a puppy form and exploding building to leaping onto a departing helicopter in order to finally undertake an adventure of his own.
20th Century Fox
Kristen Wiig plays Walter's co-worker and love interest, Cheryl, while Sean Penn plays Sean O'Connell, the photographer who inspires Walter's adventure. The cast is rounded out by Adam Scott, as Walter and Cheryl's boss, Shirley MacLaine and Katheryn Hahn as Walter's mother and sister, respectively, and Patton Oswalt as the customer service representative for the online dating site that Walter belongs to.
Between the special effects and the many exotic locations, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty promises to be a visually stunning adventure — even the office building is impeccably designed — and due to this being the first trailer to focus on the film's plot, it seems like there's a good chance that the cinematography will outweigh the story. However, since the trailer never quite makes it clear whether Walter's journey is real or just in his head, there may be more to the film than what appears on the surface.
Regardless, the movie promises to be exactly the kind of life-affirming, feel good film that tends to draw audiences around the holidays, which means it has already generated a great deal of interest from critics and movie-goers alike.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty will open in theaters on Christmas Day.
Let’s get one thing straight: replicants within a film are way, way cool. The original Blade Runner fashioned a world few flicks have ever touched, with Ridley Scott’s vision of Philip K. Dick’s original dystopian tale still influencing directors some 30-plus years after its initial release. The icy cool robotic replicants that inhabited Ridley’s world – nearly indistinguishable from their human counterparts - are primarily the reason why. Thing is, now Scott is reportedly looking at replicating Blade Runner itself, with Harrison Ford on record saying the two have “been chatting about it.” Need a red flag why this shouldn’t happen? The script is now in the hands of Green Lantern writer Michael Green. Yes, that Green Lantern. Be afraid, film fans. Be very afraid. Here’s hoping this replicant has a built-in termination date well before its release, saving it a fate similar to these vastly inferior second stanzas to some really enjoyable opening installments.
Blues Brothers 2000 (1998)
When one of the two main actors of a film has already gone to that great gig in the sky, why bother making another installment ? It certainly wasn’t because the world was clamoring see John Goodman dance. Bad from note one.
Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977)
A film so horrid it reportedly prompted angry audience members to chase studio execs down the street after viewing it for mere minutes, Exorcist II is lesser-than its original in every way. Maybe the devil made them do it.
Tron: Legacy (2000)
Want a glimpse what Blade Runner 2 might look like? See Tron: Legacy. Better technology isn’t worth a flying disc if the story isn’t there. This sequel should have titled Tron: Lethargy. Total snoozefest.
Escape from L.A. (1996)
In therapy, many a session was spent trying to help me forget the vision of badass Snake Plissken surfing with Peter Fonda. Man. Why did I have to bring this up again? Booking another appointment . . . now.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986)
Why, Tobe, why?! You can almost forgive a studio for cranking up the sequel machine for pure monetary reasons. When the original director undertakes said assignment (and fails as miserably as this) however, it’s unforgiveable. A massacre indeed, just not the one intended.
