Released in 1997, 'The Devil's Advocate' starred Keanu Reeves as an up and coming lawyer who gets in way over his head when he's poached to work for a major firm in New York and discovers that his new boss (Al Pacino) is Lucifer himself. The film was a major success and helped launch the career of Charlize Theron, who went on to become one of Hollywood's biggest stars. 17 years later, we take a look back at the cast of this dark thriller and see what they're up to now.
In 1998, Steven Soderbergh released the crime comedy 'Out of Sight,' based on the Elmore Leonard novel of the same name. Starring George Clooney, Jennifer Lopez, and one heck of an ensemble cast, the film followed a bank robber as he's chased down by a U.S. Marshal and the two unwittingly fall for each other. While the film wasn't a huge success at the box office, it was a hit with critics and cinephiles alike, and has become a beloved classic. 16 years later, we revisit the cast and see what they're up to now.
HBO's ‘True Detective’ has neither completed the course of its eight-episode run, nor has that Nic Pizzolato-scripted series even officially attained a season 2 renewal, but recently the internet has been abuzz with #TrueDetectiveSeason2 casting choices, both real and fake. The meme may have run its course, but we decided to take a serious approach to pool Hollywood A-list talent we’d like to see in ‘True Detective’ season 2!
This week, James Franco, the multi-hyphenate talent and student of all things art, finally chimed in on the ongoing shenanigans (Shia-nanigans?) of Shia LaBeouf -- from his plagiarism of Daniel Clowes, to his plagiarized apologies for his plagiarism, to his bizarre public appearances wearing a bag over his head declaring "I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE," among various other ridiculous things. Franco's op-ed in The New York Times read like a myopic declaration of male actor privilege, particularly because you'll never see actresses pulling the same stunts LaBeouf's been pulling (or that their other male counterparts have, for that matter) -- and if they have or had, they certainly wouldn't have a career afterward.
In 1999, Larry and Lana Wachowski unleashed their inventive feature 'The Matrix,' which followed computer programmer Neo (Keanu Reeves) as he learns that reality as we know it is simply a simulated one created by machines to keep humans under control. Neo discovers he is the "Chosen One" destined to lead a rebellion against the machines and free humans from their oppression. The film was wildly successful and spawned two sequels, an animated anthology, and a video game, and made the visionary Wachowskis a household name. Fifteen years later, we revisit the cast of this beloved contemporary sci-fi classic and see what they're up to now.
AMC zombie drama 'The Walking Dead' has divided critics and fans alike over the course of its first four seasons, weaving in and out of comic storylines to tell a unique tale whose effectiveness can often be as bleak as the zombie apocalypse itself. It may not ever live up to the comics, but is it beyond saving?
