Oscar Isaac recently went on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert for an interview that has everything you could ever want, including incredible anecdotes about Carrie Fisher, childhood movie clips, dad jokes, and geeking out about Shakespeare interpretations as the actor prepares for his debut as Hamlet.

If there’s one thing the world needs right now, it’s a big-screen reboot of ’90s television drama Baywatch starring Dwayne Jackson and Zac Efron. Said (probably literally) no one ever. Just how or why this project was greenlit with a budget of $40 million is anyone’s guess. After months of trailers, washboard abs and hackneyed […]

The very first member of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre family we ever met was initially dubbed “The Hitchhiker,” played by actor Edwin Neal in the original movie. Of course, the film ended with the Hitchhiker being run over by a semi-truck, so the character’s appearance in the sequel was limited – his corpse was carried around […]
