Good Will Hunting: Talking ‘Nebraska’ With Will Forte, Who Might Be the Nicest Guy in Hollywood

forte-int

Since leaving 'SNL' a few years ago, Will Forte has guest-starred on several TV shows (including a memorable turn as a drag queen on '30 Rock') and had roles in several comedies, including 'MacGruber' -- the movie based on his 'SNL' character, which has cultivated a cult following since its release in 2010. This Friday, audiences will get to see a very different side of the comedic actor in Alexander Payne's 'Nebraska,' a father-son road trip dramedy co-starring the legendary Bruce Dern. In the film, Forte plays David, an aimless stereo salesman who agrees to take his father, Woody, to Nebraska when the latter believes he's won prize money in a sweepstakes.

We had a chance to sit down with Forte to discuss the opportunity to work with Payne and Dern, reuniting with his 'Brothers Solomon' director Bob Odenkirk, and what's next for the 'MacGruber' star.

Even if you don't know the name Richard Curtis, you certainly know his movies. The man has written such classic rom-coms as 'Notting Hill,' 'Four Weddings and a Funeral,' 'Bridget Jones' Diary' and, most well-known of all, 'Love Actually,' which he also directed. His latest and last directorial effort, 'About Time,' brings together Bill Nighy, Domhnall Gleeson and Rachel McAdams to tell arguably his most personal story yet, and we sat down with the director to talk about the experience.

Interview: Bill Nighy and Domhnall Gleeson Talk ‘About Time,’ Richard Curtis and Surprise Cameos

About Time Bill Nighy Domhnall Gleeson Interview
Universal

Bill Nighy and Domhnall Gleeson star in Richard Curtis' ('Love Actually') latest and, unfortunately, last directorial effort, 'About Time.' The two play a father-and-son duo with a unique family trait -- the men can all travel through time. While the film is a unique take on the rom-com genre, focusing primarily on Gleeson's Tim as he uses his gift to land a girlfriend (in Rachel McAdams), this familial relationship offers some of the film's most moving moments.

At 60 years old, an age she freely admits, Mary Steenburgen has had an amazing career. She's an Oscar-winning actress, an award-winning song writer and has starred in so many projects that are a major part of pop culture from 'Elf' to 'Back to the Future III' to 'Step Brothers.' She continues to work and, maybe most impressively, isn't just playing the grandma in a movie. She's the romantic lead in a movie opening today, 'Last Vegas' with Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline.

We caught up with Steenburgen to talk about her impressive career, the 'Step Brothers' outtakes, a return to 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' and how nerds keep coming up to her wanting to talk about 'Back to the Future' 23 years later.

‘Grandpa’ Style: A Weekend in Las Vegas With Johnny Knoxville and ‘Bad Grandpa’

knoxville

Just don't get punched in the balls.

It's rare that thought would go through your head as you prepare to spend a weekend covering a movie. I mean, interviewing Tommy Lee Jones might feel like getting punched in the balls, but never a movie star actually punching your nuts. Then again there aren't many movies like 'Bad Grandpa.' The film stars Johnny Knoxville and is produced by many of his 'Jackass' cohorts, notorious for their behind-the-scenes nut-punches.

Armed with the knowledge that a potential smack to the groin lurked around every corner, I packed my bags to spend a weekend in Vegas, Grandpa Style. Could I survive a weekend with Johnny Knoxville and Team Jackass?

Djimon Hounsou Interview: Talking ‘Baggage Claim,’ Black Superheroes and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

'Baggage Claim' may mine familiar territory with its tale of a flight attendant sorting through her exes for the perfect man, but Djimon Hounsou is better than perfect in the film – he’s complicated. Playing a hugely successful hotelier who offers unexpected proposition to Montana (Paula Patton), the film’s heroine, Hounsou presents a sophisticated alternative to the African characters that too often appear on film. Possessed of a more cosmopolitan attitude about relationships, Hounsou’s character provides the film with one of its only alternatives to traditional relationships, and makes that option even more appealing than the one she’s chasing.

We sat down with Hounsou at the recent Los Angeles press day for 'Baggage Claim,' where the actor offers some remarkable insights about not just his character, but the perception of Africans in American and European entertainment. Putting his own professional endeavors in a cultural context, Hounsou talked about the work he does with each role, and revealed how taxing it can be to balance those larger responsibilities with his own creative process.

Jersey Strong: Joseph Gordon-Levitt on Becoming a Guido For ‘Don Jon’

Joseph Gordon Levitt Interview Don Jon
Relativity Media

It's easy to be jealous of Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He's an incredibly talented (and good-looking) guy. He can act, sing, dance and with his latest movie, 'Don Jon,' he proves he can write and direct too. It's almost not fair. But, it's hard to hate a guy who is so damned nice. (Oh, did we mention he's also just about the nicest guy you could meet? Yeah, that too.)

We caught up with Gordon-Levitt to talk about the challenges of making his first movie, whether people take actors seriously as directors and, as a native New Jerseyan, how he and co-star Scarlett Johansson managed to so perfectly embody that Jersey style.
