Although it doesn't open in wide release until next week, Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln' has already started gaining traction as a major Oscar contender, with Daniel Day-Lewis' performance as the sixteenth President of the United States being one of the most talked about roles of the year. However, Day-Lewis is supported by one of the deepest character actor benches in recent memory and two new clips from the film give us a taste of the film's supporting cast.

If you're still in the political mood after last night, we have a few presidential treats for you in the form of three clips from Steven Speilberg's 'Lincoln.' Steven Spielberg's latest is opening in limited release this week, but you can preview Daniel Day-Lewis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones' acting chops right now!
It would appear as though the 2013 awards season already has a major player in 'The Homesman,' and the picture hasn't even begun shooting yet. The film, set to be written and directed by Tommy Lee Jones (who also plans to star), is an American frontier drama with a handful of meaty roles. Today, we may know who will occupy a couple of those meaty roles: Oscar-winners Meryl Streep and Hilary Swank. (Jones won an Oscar too, so we're talking lots of potential "Academy Award Winner..." titles on 'The Homesman's' poster.)
Director Peter Webber's 'Emperor' had its premiere last night at the Toronto International Film Festival and today, it was announced that Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate are teaming up distribute the film. Distribution was always in this movie's future: anything starring Tommy Lee Jones as General Douglas MacArthur isn't going to sit on a shelf. If you're curious what that performance looks like, you're in luck: the first clip from the film has made its way online.
Meryl Streep has done a lot acting-with-a-capital-a lately; big, showy performances with accents and makeup and wigs and uncanny impressions of famous people. 'Hope Springs' proves she can still act-with-a-lower-case-a -- playing a nobody suburban housewife trying to breathe life back into her long-standing but lifeless marriage -- and produce equally big results. She's fantastic, and she seems to bring out the best in everyone around her, like a pitcher working on a no-hitter whose teammates are inspired to rise to the occasion and make outstanding defensive plays.
Tommy Lee Jones isn't retiring anytime soon -- in fact, the actor just signed on to co-star with Michelle Pfeiffer and Robert De Niro in director Luc Besson's action-comedy 'Malavita.'
Recently, HeyUGuys ran the first official image of Oscar-winner Tommy Lee Jones in character as General Douglas MacArthur for Peter Webber’s ‘Emperor’ (above). Recently, we asked Jones about playing the iconic military figure during a recent interview, and were somewhat surprised by his response.
There's no subject more ripe for cinema than the sex lives of old people. Who doesn't want to talk about older couples bumping uglies? That's why 'Hope Springs' pairs Oscar winners Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep together for a big summer release. The film is about an older couple who've unintentionally lapsed into celibacy and are looking to reheat their sex life. It comes out August 10, and now we have a trailer.
We haven’t seen much of Josh Brolin’s Tommy Lee Jones impersonation for the upcoming ‘Men In Black 3,’ but the brief snippet at the end of the full trailer was spot on. He nails Jones’ laconic line delivery. And almost everyone who has commented on Brolin’s deadpan take said that they love it. I say “almost” everyone because Jones has weighed in. And he doesn’t seem to care for it.
Between AMC's impressive TV purview of '60s advertising executives, the zombie apocalypse, the New Mexico meth trade, period railroad construction, Seattle crime scenes and Kevin Smith, there's a very specific chunk missing: football! After all, what's Sunday without a little pigskin? Enter Tommy Lee Jones...
