James Bond Parachute Stuntman from London Olympics Dies in Fall

Originally posted 08/15/2013 08:20AM

The British stuntman who parachuted into the London Olympics opening ceremony as James Bond has been killed in an accident in the Swiss Alps while flying a special wing suit.

Online extreme sports broadcaster Epic TV says Mark Sutton died during a gathering it had organized involving 20 wing suit pilots who were being filmed as they jumped from helicopters.

Swiss police confirmed that a 42-year-old Briton died Wednesday in a fall near Trient in the Valais region.

The 2012 Summer Games opening ceremony memorably included Sutton as a Bond double jumping with another stuntman dressed as a skydiving Queen Elizabeth II.

Originally posted 02/20/2013 07:00PM

Strike up the band, for Sunday night's Oscars promise to be very musical.

In the most detailed preview yet of what is to be expected – and what isn't – the 85th annual Academy Awards producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron tell Deadline.com that their special tribute to the resurgence of movie musicals in the past decade will star Les Misérables nominees Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway with costars Russell Crowe, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tevit, Samantha Barks, and Helena Bonham Carter; Dreamgirls Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson; and Chicago winner Catherine Zeta-Jones.

"What we don't want to do is play it safe," says Zadan about the show in general, admitting – repeatedly – that the job of producing it is "enormous."

Weekend Holiday Movie Guide: Watch This, Not That

Originally posted 12/08/2012 02:15PM

The hectic holidays are almost upon us, which means it's the perfect time of year to head to the movies – provided you don't get stuck with the cinematic equivalent of a fruitcake.

So arm yourself with this handy watch this/skip that weekend movie guide before your Aunt Mildred suggests a Red Dawn/Killing Them Softly double feature. (Seriously, don't even entertain that idea.)

Watch This: Les Misérables
Something about a grand, old-fashioned musical turns me into a swooning, giddy thing. Weeks later, I'm still humming "Master of the House," even though I don't know all the words. But the emotions are what really linger – Hugh Jackman's stirring performance as Jean Valjean, the ex-con who becomes a hero, is only outdone by Anne Hathaway's brief but soulful turn as Fantine, the young mother who sells her body to feed her child. Sure, it's maudlin and manipulative, but let's be honest, musical theater nerds, isn't that what we're paying for?

In Cold Blood Killers' Bodies Exhumed, Possible Link to 1959 Murder?

In Cold Blood Killers' Bodies Exhumed in Kansas

Originally posted 12/19/2012 12:50PM

The bodies of two men put to death for the 1959 murders made famous in Truman Capote's 1966 bestseller In Cold Blood – and subsequent film depictions – were exhumed Tuesday as detectives probe an unsolved 1959 quadruple homicide in Florida.

Investigators hope to see if DNA from Richard Hickock and Perry Smith, who were both hanged in 1965 for the grisly killing of the Herb and Bonnie Clutter family of Holcomb, Kan., matches any evidence in the equally brutal murder of the Cliff and Christine Walker family in Osprey, Fla.

"Maybe it will bring closure to the Walker family, and even after 53 years that would be a good thing," Kyle Smith, deputy director of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, tells Reuters.

To the Associated Press, he added, "Obviously, where these perpetrators are dead, it's not going to result in any prosecution." Still, he conceded, "There's a lot of historical interest, as well."

Roger Moore: Skyfall with Daniel Craig Is 'The Best, Best Bond of All'

Neither shaken, nor stirred. Just perennially cool.

While he'll no doubt be best remembered for the seven James Bond films he made from 1973 to 1985, Sir Roger Moore – he was knighted in 2003, for his humanitarian work on behalf of UNICEF – also wears many other labels proudly.

He was a young MGM star (opposite the then-equally young Elizabeth Taylor), a TV star and producer (The Saint), an author twice over (a 2008 autobiography, My Word Is My Bond, and the brand-new Bond on Bond: Reflections on 50 Years of James Bond Movies), and a word-class raconteur.

It was in those last two capacities that the London-born Sir Roger, a hale and hearty 85, spent time with PEOPLE in New York this week. Among the many opinions he shared were those on a certain movie franchise.

REVIEW: Skyfall May Be the Best James Bond Movie Yet | Daniel Craig

Skyfall May Be the Best James Bond Movie Yet: Review

How do you make a 50-year-old film franchise new again? By letting it feel its age.

With wry geriatric jokes, a plot that strikes 007 right where he lives and even some throwback gadgets, Skyfall gives James Bond a delightfully retro reboot. It also establishes Daniel Craig, who plays Bond, as the only man who can rival Sean Connery as lord of the spies.

Turns out, the first step in reviving Bond is to kill him. Under orders to shoot a foreign operative carrying a list of Britain's undercover agents, Bond's fellow spy Eve (Naomie Harris) accidentally hits 007.

Harley Pasternak Blogs: How Leading Actors Get Fit for Roles

A few weeks ago, my wife and I watched Crazy Stupid Love (I know, I know, we're a little late to the party). In one scene, Ryan Gosling seduces Emma Stone by taking his shirt off.

I turned to my wife to see her reaction. She was beet red and had her jaw wide open. When I asked if she enjoyed the movie, she uttered, "Ryan Gosling really was … fit looking."

(I worked out twice as hard the subsequent day, by the way.)

The fact is, Ryan got in amazing shape for the film. He has become part of a long list of leading men who have exercised and dieted to make their on-screen performance more impactful.
