Eddie Redmayne was a guest on The Tonight Show yesterday and he taught Jimmy Fallon the Mating Dance from his new movie Fantastic Beasts.
I know it is called the Mating Dance, but it didn’t do anything for me. And I have been described as a fantastic beast in the place where you mate.
A few years ago when Daniel Radcliffe starred in Equus on Broadway and he went fully naked. In a few weeks he is hitting the stage again and Stephen Colbert wanted to know on his Late Show if we are going to see the actor’s magic wand again in Privacy. Harry Potter told him, “I mean, one of the great things about the show is that it is going to be changing on a nightly basis. Based on things the audience is doing, so who knows?
According to Playbill‘s description of the off-Broadway show, “Privacy explores our complicated relationship with technology and data through the funny and heart-breaking travails of a lonely guy (Radcliffe), who arrives in the city to figure out how to like, tag, and share his life without giving it all away. The play uncovers what our technological choices reveal about who we are, what we want and who’s keeping track of it all. This provocative theatrical event will ask audiences to charge their phones, leave them ON during the performance and to embark on a fascinating dive online and into a new reality where we’re all connected…for better or worse.”
I hope that the audience asks for a nude Selfie from him every night! If they he’ll be playing to packed houses every night. Heck, I’d fly across the country to see that.
Miriam Margolyes has been acting for over 50 years now and Graham Norton wanted to know if she ever got star stuck. Then she told him about the time she met Sir Laurence Olivier at a stage door to get his autograph. She described their encounter as, “He came out, I remember so distinctly, that I started to cream in my knickers,” adding, “I could feel it.”
I don’t know what was better, her saying, “cream in my knickers” or Matthew Perry’s reaction to what she said? She wins because now I am going to say, “cream in my knickers,” whenever I see a guy that makes me, “cream in my knickers.”
Have you ever been so excited to meet a celebrity that you creamed in your knickers? I have met several celebs on my To-Do lists and sad to say none of them made me “cream in my knickers.”
Daniel Radcliffe was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon challenged him to a game of Water War. Basically, they play the card game war, but the loser of each round gets a glass of water poured or thrown on them. Well, Harry Potter found the game quite magical. So much so, that every time someone lost a round, Radcliffe couldn’t stop laughing. He laughed harder when he won, but he didn’t stop when he was all wet. His giggling put such a spell on me, I was giggling along with him. Did he put the same spell on you too?
The first trailer is out for Victor Frankenstein starring James McAvoy and Danielle Radcliffe and it looks awful. It is another take on the classic and modernized to like sh!t. When a tale is a scary enough on its own, it doesn’t need to be CGIed to max to tell it. This movie looks like it is more about the visuals than the legendary story. It’s like hey were making a movie that will work great in 3D, get two of the biggest stars to act in it and it will be a hit. I for one say, “no,” and I hope you join me by boycotting this movie on November 25th.
We need to stop the overuse of CGI and bring it back to the good old days of scary creatures that made you lose sleep for several nights. Not a movie that makes you forget how scary it was by the time you get to your car. Enough is enough.
I am not saying that CGI is bad, I am just saying that the overuse of is horrendous.
They need to start making movies like they did when they made The Cat and The Canary. The classic thriller is available from Cheezy Flicks for a mere $4. That is a lot cheaper than going to see Victor Frankenstein in theaters, a whole lot cheaper.
