Wes Bentley Denied Entry Into Canada To Promote Film Due To 2008 Drug Arrest

Filed under: DrugsFilm FlickersLegal Matters

Wes Bentley's past came back to haunt him this week and was denied entry into Canada where he planned to promote latest film at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The Hunger Games actor was arrested in 2008 for heroin possession. Since our friendly neighbors to the north do not allow convicted foreign criminals past the border, he couldn't attend the festival screening of The Time Being.

He's now married and has completely turned his life around, so it's understandable that he's pretty bummed about the whole thing. A source close to him explained:

Mena Suvari Keeping Busy! Lands A Role On American Horror Story

Filed under: TV NewsZachary QuintoMena Suvari

mena suvari lands a role on american horror story

Wow! Is it like a rule a that Mena Suvari must be cast in EVERYTHING with the word "American" in the title???

Last we heard from the American Pie/American Virgin/American Beauty star, she had landed a role in American Reunion, and was getting a pret-ty decent paycheck for it!

Now, we're hearing that Mena has gotten another gig: as The Black Dahlia on American Horror Story!

For those of you who didn't see the Brian De Palma movie, Dahlia/Elizabeth Short was a "high-profile murder victim whose 1947 unsolved killing was the subject of myriad books and movie adaptations."

Sounds like a fun episode, but we're even MORE excited to see Zachary Quinto as a gay ghost next week! He can haunt us ANY time! LOLz.

New Details On Sam Mendes And Kevin Spacey's Richard III!

kevin-spacey-and-sam-mendes-collaborate-on-stage-production-of-richard-iii

This is going to be absolutely epic!

As we first reported back in August, Kevin Spacey is officially re-teaming with his American Beauty director, Sam Mendes, for the title role in a stage production of Richard III at The Old Vic theatre in London in June, and then at the Brooklyn Academy of Music the following January!

Here are all the details according to the official press release:

The final season of The Bridge Project starring Kevin Spacey, Artistic Director of The Old Vic, in the title role of Richard III, will open at The Old Vic in London on June 29, 2011. The Bridge Project will then embark on an international tour, arriving at BAM’s Harvey Theater in New York in January 2012. The Bridge Project will again be directed by Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes with whom Spacey worked on the film American Beauty, for which they both won BAFTA and Academy Awards.

The Bridge Project is a unique three-year series of co-productions by The Old Vic, BAM and Neal Street, devoted to producing large-scale, classical theatre for international audiences.

The full company will again be drawn from leading American and British actors, with complete casting and international dates to be announced. Tickets will go on sale at The Old Vic from January 31, 2011 and at BAM in Fall 2011.

Commenting on the final season, Sam Mendes says:

“I am absolutely delighted to be working with Kevin again for the first time since American Beauty, and I am doubly thrilled that he will be leading year three of The Bridge Project. Richard III is a play I love, and a role I think Kevin is born to play. I’m also thrilled that the partnership between our three entities has strengthened and blossomed over the course of this venture, along with a host of invaluable international partnerships that have enabled us to extend the reach of global touring year after year.”

The Old Vic Artistic Director Kevin Spacey, who plays Richard III, says:

“Sam, [BAM Executive Producer] Joe [Melillo], and I are so excited to announce this production. Sam is one of the finest directors I have had the pleasure to work with and to gain this opportunity is beyond my wildest hopes. I love Sam’s perspective on a role, carving and shaping the actor. With such a remarkable character before me I have a feeling this one is going to be a memorable experience. It is also my hope to bring a comprehensive educational programme and opportunities for emerging artists along with our travels, making an argument for the living theatre in all the major cities we will visit throughout 2011. We're delighted that Bank of America Merrill Lynch has come on board for another season as our sponsor and I applaud their continued support for our work.”

We don't even know where to begin, we're so excited!

This show is going to be RIDICULOUSLY good! Seeing that press release has got us totally pumped!

What do U think?? Are U ready for Kevin and Sam's Richard III??

It's Round Three For Annette Bening And Hilary Swank

Filed under: Film FlickersAwardzHilary Swank

It's a battle for Best Actress!

The nominations aren't even out yet, but insiders are speculating that Annette Bening and Hilary Swank will be duking it out for the THIRD time at the 2010 Academy Awards.

Yes, these two have faced each other before - first, in 1999 when Hilary won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Brandon Teena in Boys Don't Cry against Annette Bening's role in American Beauty.

The two went head-to-head again in 2004 when Hilary won her second Oscar for Million Dollar Baby, winning over Annette in Being Julia.

So far, Annette has received rave reviews in The Kids Are All Right and Mother and Child. Meanwhile, Hilary is getting Oscar buzz for her upcoming movie, Conviction, which means these two are very likely to meet each other again at next year's Oscars.

Will Annette finally prevail and win against Hilary's reigning Queen of the Oscars??

Who do U want to see win the Oscar next year??

Sam Mendes And Kevin Spacey To Work Together Again

Filed under: Kevin Spacey

kevinsame.jpg

Last time they collaborated, they made American Beauty. We’re going into this one very optimistically!

Kevin Spacey and Sam Mendes are joining forces once again, this time in the theatre for a production of William Shakespeare’s Richard III.

The play will open at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York, and will then make its way to London’s Old Vic theatre, where Kevin Spacey serves as artistic director.

Spacey will play the lead character, Richard III. Here’s what Kevin had to say about the opportunity:

"With such a remarkable character before me, I have a feeling this one is going to be a memorable experience."

More from Spacey on Mendes’ directing skills:

"Sam is one of the finest directors I have had the pleasure to work with and to gain this opportunity is beyond my wildest hopes.”

Mendes has been quoted as saying that Richard III is “a role I think Kevin is born to play.”

Looks like a wonderful collaboration in the works! We’re sure this will be fantastic!

Are U excited to see this American Beauty duo teaming up again?

Pay Up, Bentley!

Filed under: Film FlickersLegal Matters

Tsk! Tsk!

Uncle Sam always finds you out!

Wes Bentley, only best known for his role in American Beauty, is facing some financial trouble with the U.S. government.

He owes as much as $204,000 in delinquent federal taxes!

Whoa! That's way more than any royalties from DVD sales are going to cover.

The IRS put a lien on Wes last March, following two previous liens from last year. Still, no real dent in the debt has been made.

You need a job, BB! And fast!
