Hollywood Legend Jack Nicholson Retires From Acting

Or at least a stunt double will. "There's no question that this event will change the Bowl as much as it might change Blue Man," says Grohl. "And yet they've been incredibly respectful." Well, up to a point, says Todd Perlmutter, Blue Man's musical director. The program will include classical music pieces interspersed with Blue Man's own compositions as well as previous collaborations with such artists as Brazil's Monobloco, pop singer Tracy Bonham, Venice Beach boardwalk artist Harry Perry, California throat singer Arjuna, and Japanese didgeridoo player Natsuki Tamura. "Our aesthetic is putting together disparate bedfellows of cultural influences," says Wink. While Aram Khatchaturian might be pleased with how Blue Man has enhanced his feverish "Sabre Dance" with its percussive style, Perlmutter says that Maurice Ravel might "freak out" with what it's doing to "Bolero." "It's definitely way more bizarre," he says with a laugh. <br>Source:,0,7207444.story

Ed Asner Explains Hollywood Silence on Obama, Syria: They 'Don't Want to Feel Anti-Black'

Tellingly, producers for the forthcoming film Nebraska had wanted him to play the key role of an aging, booze-addled father who makes Kardashian the trip from Montana to Nebraska with his estranged son in order to claim a million dollar Mega Sweepstakes Marketing prize. The role ultimately went to Bruce Dern, after Nicholson advised the filmmakers that he was not interested, the source said. PHOTOS: Jack Nicholson And Kevin Garnett At A Lakers Game Nicholson began his Hollywood career in the 1950s, first working as a gofer for animation legends William Hanna and Joseph Barbera at the MGM cartoon studio. He left soon after to pursue his dream to star on screen. The New Jersey-native made his film debut in a low-budget teen drama The Cry Baby Killer, in 1958, playing the title role. Hes best remembered for his Academy Award winning roles as Best Actor for One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest and for As Good as It Gets. He also won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for the 1983 film Terms of Endearment. <br>Source:

Why Hollywood's Anti-War Kim Kardashian Voices are Quiet on Syria

"Nobody is going to be the Lone Ranger anymore. They're going to want to be Glen Gould. Okay maybe not Glen." Gould likened the rise of native cinema to a return to tradition. "Traditionally in our communities, we had storytellers way way back when. When film came around, our stories were dictated by non-native people, so we had Italians playing Indians," he said, adding that he would like to now play an Italian mafioso in a movie. "But now we have this wave of aboriginal writers and storytellers." Aboriginal activists have long complained that the so-called Hollywood Indian neither mirrors Native American contemporary reality nor their historical past. <br>Source:

"We're talking about the difference between an invasion in Iraq and a limited action in response to the use of chemical weapons in Syria." Asner said the lack of an organized effort against war in Syria is a matter of timing. Bush took months to make the case for war in Iraq, giving the antiwar left plenty of time to prepare a response. "It will be a done deal before Hollywood is mobilized," Asner said. "This country will either bomb the hell out of Syria or not before Hollywood gets off its ass."

"We had a million people in the streets, for Christ's sake, protesting Iraq, which was about as illegal as you could find. Did it matter? <br>Source:

Natives beat down 'Hollywood Indian' image

PHOTOS: Top Celebrity Twitter Commentators Asner, 83, and Farrell, 74, both expressed extreme disappointment in Obama for advocating military action. "What he is talking about in Syria is a potential war crime," Farrell said. "It will be illegal, and if citizens are killed it certainly could be considered a war crime." Even if Obama presents irrefutable evidence that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used poison gas against civilians, military action is still unwarranted, the two activists say. "This administration ought to insist that the international community charge [Assad] with a war crime and prosecute him, and in so doing Obama would be following the law instead of flaunting the law," Farrell said. "It's incredibly improper for the president to call for a strike. I have said it everywhere I can and I suspect a lot of others will do the same, but whether there will be an organized effort, I don't know," Farrell continued. <br>Source:

Brad Pitt, Hollywood’s Godfather

and spends the next 12 years in slavery. Boasting an all-star cast including Chiwetel Ejiofor (as Northrup), Michael Fassbender, Alfre Woodard, Paul Dano, and Sarah Paulson, the film is directed by acclaimed filmmaker Steve McQueen (" Shame "). But even with all of those names attached, Pitt knew he needed to bring more to the table to attract investors. That was one of the reasons he agreed to a small cameo, playing a Canadian carpenter named Samuel Bass. Its difficult material to get financing for It doesnt necessarily sound like a profitable idea, Brad Pitt said of 12 Years. Our idea was to get as much of the cast together as we could and as much of the crew, so [the investors] could feel it and see what shape it would be. Also on the TIFF red carpet on Friday, the films main star praised Pitt for backing the film. <br>Source:
