Filed under: HealthFootballSurgery

todd-marinovich-artist-hadn-surgery.jpg

Todd Marinovich, an ex-NFL quarterback, just had major surgery on his throwing hand.

That hand also just happens to be his painting hand now that he's retired!

Drug addiction ruined his football career and he almost lost everything, but he got clean and became a pretty successful artist!

Though things almost crashed down when he woke up with no feeling in his left hand one morning.

Sad news.

Thomas Kinkade, whose paintings are estimated to be owned in one out of every 20 homes in the United States, died this past Friday. He was 52 and died of natural causes. An autopsy is scheduled for today.

His paintings were sneered at by high brow art critics, yet his work was pop-pop-popular making over 100 million dollars every year!

Kinkade struggled with alcohol addiction recently and had been separated from his wife, Nanette, for one year.

Steven Soderbergh's Been Working On The Hunger Games???

Filed under: Film Flickers

steven soderbergh works on hunger games

Do tell, Steven!

New reports going around the Internet indicate that Contagion director Steven Soderbergh has been doing second unit filming on The Hunger Games, and NOW Steven has opened up about his involvement.

Here's what he had to say about it:

"The f—ing firestorm starts. 'Why is he here? What's going on? Is the movie in trouble? Is he directing footage from the second one?' All of this crazy-ass speculation."

"Back in April, [The Hunger Games director] Gary [Ross] — who is a close friend of mine [and] I've exchanged creative favors with non-stop over the last 15 years — when he got the boards for the shoot…called me and said, 'Hey, first week of August, I got these two days of second unit, Is there any way you can come down and help me out? Because I'd rather have you do it than hire somebody who I don't know. I said, 'Actually, that works out.' We'll just be finishing Contagion and prepping Magic Mike, and yeah, it could be fun."

More from Steven:

"[It was my duty] to come in and duplicate exactly what Gary and [cinematographer] Tom Stern…are doing, to mimic as closely as I can to their aesthetic. And that's what I attempted to do. But if I've done my job properly…by design, you won't be able to tell what I did because it's supposed to cut seamlessly into what they're doing."

Thanks for opening up, Steven! We gotta say though…with everything you've got going on right now, are you REALLY going to give it all up to become a painter???

So Much For Ocean's Fourteen! Steven Soderbergh Retiring

steven soderbergh to retire from filmmaking

But, where will we go for understated comedic performances by Matt Damon and George Clooney???

After his upcoming thriller Contagion and a couple of other projects, director Steven Soderbergh plans to retire.

Here's what Matt Damon had to say about his frequent collaborator's decision to leave the filmmaking game:

"He's retiring, he's been talking about it for years and it's getting closer.

He wants to paint and he says he’s still young enough to have another career. He’s kind of exhausted with everything that interested him in terms of form. He’s not interested in telling stories. Cinema interested him in terms of form and that’s it. He says, 'If I see another over-the-shoulder shot, I’m going to blow my brains out.'

After this movie we’re doing Liberace next summer with Michael Douglas, and then he might do one more movie after that with George [Clooney], and then after that he’s retiring."

An unexpected career move, but it's def important to follow your passion.

And who knows? Maybe after five or ten years of painting, Steven will return to us to make another mainstream film with Sasha Grey.

Lots of luck, bb!
