Amid the myriad of speculation and dead horse meme-bashing, yesterday saw HBO’s ‘True Detective’ season 2 rumor mill circling Vince Vaughn as its latest claim, adding fuel to the fire of reported series stars Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch. Now, with an irritatingly endless wall of silence rivaling ‘Star Wars 7,’ HBO is leveled with yet more ‘True Detective’ casting talks from the likes of ‘Mad Men’ maven Elisabeth Moss, and genre favorite Michelle Forbes, among a treasure trove of new casting details.
Casting for HBO's 'True Detective' season 2 was a joke long before it became an actual joke, and the latest A-list name attached to the project is no laughing matter. Following rumors that Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch were in talks for the lead, 'The Internship' funnyman (if you can call it that) Vince Vaughn is the latest Hollywood star circling the lead roles of our new 'True Detective.'
In 1998, filmmaker Gus Van Sant released his remake of 'Psycho,' starring Vince Vaughn in the role of iconic serial killer and hotel owner Norman Bates. Though much of the film was a shot-for-shot remake, Van Sant's film also (somewhat) updated Alfred Hitchcock's classic tale of a woman who embezzles money from her work only to find herself in deeper trouble when she stops for a stay at the Bates Motel. Sixteen years later, we look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
In 1997, Steven Spielberg unleashed 'The Lost World: Jurassic Park,' the sequel to the wildly successful box office smash 'Jurassic Park,' following Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) and a team of experts as they investigate a second island where the dinosaurs from the first film were secretly engineered. The film broke several box office records, and became the second highest-grossing film of all time, just behind 'Titanic.' Seventeen years later, we revisit the cast of this awesome sequel and see what they're up to now.
To be a heart-on-your-sleeve weepie in 2013, you've got to have some far-fetched gimmick. 'About Time' has time travel, 'Safe Haven' had ghosts and 'Delivery Man' has Vince Vaughn as an anonymous sperm donor hunted down by hundreds of his young-adult offspring. The mechanics of the plot are so ludicrous that audiences should be forgiven for shouting, “No, sorry, it wouldn't work that way!” back at the screen. But one has to give the movie credit for its sheer audacity. It refused to offer an explanation for its instigating illogic. Great character actor Damian Young gets the unenviable task of delivering the hook with the phrase “certain complications arose ...”
We caught up with Vince Vaughn on the set of 'Delivery Man' to talk about the challenges of remaking the film, toeing the line between comedy and drama and, of course, the return of Wes Mantooth in 'Anchorman 2'.
Made for less than $300,000, 'Swingers' was a surprise hit in 1996. Jon Favreau, the film's star, also wrote the movie about struggling actors looking for love after dark in Los Angeles and cast his real-life friends as his on-screen buddies.
'Swingers' ended up launching the careers of several actors as well as director Doug Liman, who went on to helm 'The Bourne Identity' and 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith.'
See what the cast of 'Swingers' is up to these days below.
It's been more than 10 years since 'Old School' hit theaters, so we thought it would be a good time to take a look back at this classic comedy. 'Old School,' about a group of older guys who start a fraternity with outcasts from a local college, is a comedy classic that still holds up today. Let's take a peek at what Vaughn and the rest of the cast looked like back then, and see where they are now.
The term "product placement" feels insufficient to describe the role of Google in 'The Internship.' This is not so much product placement in a movie as movie placement in a product. For two hours, viewers are treated to a series of bright, high-energy sales pitches for the San Francisco search engine and its vast array of products and services -- Google Play, Google Drive, Google Helpline, Google Maps and, of course, plain-old Googley Google -- plus, occasional attempts at comedy from Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson while they stand in front of giant Google logos. Shameless? Absolutely. But that wouldn't be such a problem if 'The Internship' wasn't so mirthless, as well.
