Leno throws shade at President Trump, saying, "Is he that thin-skinned? You know, if this guy was any more of a pussy, he could grab himself."
"I hope that this is a wake-up call for [the White House]," said the former California governor and new 'Celebrity Apprentice' host.
The actor's latest art project asks passersby to stop by the Museum of the Moving Image and say 'He will not divide us' in front of a mounted camera.
Jeff Bridges is speaking quietly to his publicist. He’s Googled something that he wants her to print out before our interview at a swank West Hollywood hotel. What this could possibly be has us in suspense — much like Hell or High Water, the acclaimed film the 66-year-old actor is promoting. The taut yet blisteringly funny thriller puts Bridges’s grizzled Texas sheriff Marcus Hamilton, three weeks from retirement, on the trail of a pair of fraternal bank robbers Toby (Chris Pine) and Tanner Howard (Ben Foster) methodically hitting one branch at a time.
If there’s one thing that Donald Trump’s rise to become the 45th president of the United States Of America has taught us it’s that any American can become Commander In Chief. One person whose interest has been piqued by Trump’s ascendancy is none other than Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, who has now refused to rule out running for the White House in 2020. Back in 2000, when was simply known as a wrestler, he spoke at the Republican National Convention to try and encourage the youth vote.
Clint Eastwood has revealed that he’ll vote for Donald Trump in the upcoming U.S. presidential election. The legendary actor and director made this admission to Esquire during his joint interview with his son Scott Eastwood. After being asked who he’d vote for between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, Clint Eastwood admitted, “That’s a tough one, isn’t it?
“This will all be over soon, gentlemen.” That line is Sir Patrick Stewart’s favorite from his acclaimed new thriller, Green Room, because of the delicious double meaning it carries. As Darcy Banker, Stewart is issuing those words of comfort to a punk band being held captive in a rural Oregon hole-in-the-wall after witnessing a murder at the hands of Neo-Nazis running the club. The line also sums up the sheer terror produced by Stewart’s character, the club’s calm, but extremely cold-blooded, owner who shows up to make the night a living hell in the taut, gory, and unpredictable film from Blue Ruin writer-director Jeremy Saulnier.
You don’t even have to sit through The Boss to hypothesize about who Melissa McCarthy’s larger-than-life Mama Warbucks, Michelle Darnell, might be based on. “I actually started Michelle Darnell about 15 years ago, I played her at the Groundlings,” McCarthy explained (watch above) at the film’s recent Los Angeles press day, shouting out the legendary Los Angeles improv collective that also counts Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, Jack Black, Paul Reubens, Maya Rudolph, and McCarthy’s husband/Boss co-writer-director Ben Falcone as alumni.
The most surreal presidential election of our time has reminded a lot of movies fans of Idiocracy, the 2006 satire directed by Mike Judge that stars Terry Crews as a former pro wrestler who gets elected president in an aggressively anti-intellectual future. The film, which follows the interconnecting lives of disparate characters in the country music capital in 1975, revolves in part around the insurgent presidential campaign of a mysterious businessman named Hal Phillip Walker, who’s oft-heard but never actually seen. Yahoo Movies recently talked to the screenwriter of Nashville, Joan Tewkesbury, 80, about her and Altman’s surprisingly prescient creation.
The scariest movie out this weekend isn’t The Witch, it’s Donald Trump tearing off his face to reveal that he’s actually Oscar-nominated actor and global superstar Johnny Depp. An absurdist adaptation of Trump’s 1987 book The Art of the Deal, the film skewered his early business dealings and self-mythologizing, with Depp providing a scarily accurate impression of the now-69-year-old. According to Joe Randazzo, the film’s writer, Depp spent hours in the makeup chair each shooting day, getting into the character by getting into his face.
Joe Randazzo has been one of America’s leading satirists for the last decade, as the editor of The Onion and then working with Adult Swim. His name has been gold with comedy nerds in the know, and this week, Randazzo got a huge boost of public recognition with perhaps his biggest and most high-profile project yet: Funny or Die’s scathing and absurd “adaptation” of Donald Trump’s 1987 business book/memoir, The Art of the Deal.
The thought of Donald Trump becoming the 45th president of the United States is enough to scare the hair right off of some people. And the Photoshop aces on DesignCrowd have taken that Trump fear factor a few steps further — churning out over 100 images of the gaudy real estate mogul in scenes from iconic horror movies. Inspired by a photo of Trump terrorizing a knife-wielding Shelley Duvall in a meme from The Shining that went viral a few weeks ago, the Australian design firm crowd-sourced 124 similarly themed designs in an online contest. The winner, from a designer named Omee, was simple but inspired, adding Trump’s reflection to a glass door opposite a horrified Drew Barrymore in the first Scream.
Dependent on your point of view, some of the scariest movies ever made may have just gotten a whole lot scarier. Artists website Design Crowd hit upon the brilliant, hilarious and yet horrifying idea of calling upon contributors worldwide to photoshop images of Donald Trump into classic horror movie images - and the results, funnily enough, are brilliant, hilarious and yet horrifying. - What’s On The Big Screen This Halloween - Cast of Scream, Then & Now - Ellen Page To Star In Flatliners Remake Above, courtesy of designer Madeli, we can of course see what the most famous moment in ‘The Shining’ might be like with Trump in the place of Jack Nicholson: “Here’s Donny,” anyone? Below, Omee shows us how ‘Scream’ would have looked with Trump being the one asking if we like scary movies: See Why shows us Trump getting hairy in ‘An American Werewolf In London:’ Enzzok gives us Trump as Hannibal Lecter in ‘The Silence of the Lambs:’ That same artist also puts Trump in place of the titular beast of ‘Alien³:’ Continuing on an ‘Alien’ theme, Senja adds a whole new level to Ripley’s nightmare sequence in ‘Aliens:’ Digging further back into film history, the scene with the little girl by the river in ‘Frankenstein’ suddenly seems even more sinister thanks to B74Design: Whilst Creative Shots Studio put him in the small shoes of Damien in ‘The Omen.’ CreArt pits him against Freddy Krueger: Jkrebs04 makes us ponder whether we need a bigger boat: And, perhaps the funniest of all, iMagications puts Trump in ‘The Grudge.’
Saturday Night Live firmly endorsed Hillary Clinton during its season premiere. The real Hillary introduced one of host Miley Cyrus’ musical performances. Real Hillary played a bartender pouring drinks for Kate McKinnon’s Hillary in a sketch designed to show what a good sport Hillary Clinton is. And SNL took shots both smart and silly at Bernie Sanders, the other Democratic candidates the show says no one knows, as well as slapping around Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, and every Republican in sight.
Donald Trump got the Jimmy Fallon treatment on The Tonight Show Friday night, with a sketch in which Fallon impersonated Trump (orange make-up; puffy wig) interviewing himself staring into a mirror. But instead of a mirror, Fallon and guest Donald Trump faced each other. “Fallon’s a lightweight — the only one qualified to interview me is me,” said Fallon-as-Trump. “Me interviewing me — that’s a great idea!”
Donald Trump may have some controversial political views, but as the above video shows, the 69-year-old presidential candidate (and aspiring movie star) has great taste in film — even if some of his cinematic interpretations are a bit unconventional. Long before he was the star of NBC’s The Apprentice or the unlikely leader of the Republican presidential primary, Trump was a mere celebrity billionaire, which gave him time to participate in a mini-documentary project with Oscar-winning documentarian Errol Morris. One interview that didn’t make the final cut was Trump talking about his favorite movie, the 1941 classic Citizen Kane.
In 2011, investigative journalist Anthony Baxter released 'You’ve Been Trumped,' and now he's back with another Trump takedown.
