Newly hitched Brit, Eddie Redmayne, is the presently basking in the glory of all things “Theory of Everything.” Rightfully so. He may not win the OSCAR – we are rooting for him – but he sure as hell deserves the recognition.
The performance is nothing shy of amazing!
His follow up project, ‘Jupiter Ascending’ – in which much talk has concentrated on the mod looking star’s killer abs – will not, however, go down in history as the brightest choice for a follow up script for an award nominated actor. Read the rest of this entry »
Call us simpletons. Go ahead! We assure you it will make no difference in how funny we find the new Mark Wahlberg “Ted 2″ trailer that has just been released. Read the rest of this entry »
The Juno blizzard was hyped to bring a record setting 24 to 36 inches of snow – numbers that were being continuously being “revised” down as the evening went on – accompanied by 30 to 40 MPH winds, to the NYC tri-state area.
Preemptively, officials like Mayor DeBlasio and Governor Cuomo got on the defensive and implemented a State of Emergency that placed the city, and its highways, on lock down and caused damn near stampedes at local Trader Joe’s and Gristedes in search of essentials like milk and eggs.

Trawling about town recently we stopped in at the upcoming NBC on-location production of “The Slap.” They had set up camp on the elevated section of Riverside Drive – overlooking the Hudson – and we thought it a picturesque setting for a few keepsakes.
We were thrilled to have it be only a short bit before Makenzie Leigh surface looking fresh faced and ready to go about her day. Read the rest of this entry »
“American Sniper” star Bradley Cooper, presently found on the Broadway stage in “The Elephant Man,” is set to take his stage production back home across the pond to London, reports state. Read the rest of this entry »
HBO’s production of “Show Me a Hero,” starring Oscar Isaac and Winona Ryder, based on the 80’s housing uproar in Yonkers, NY – originally penned by Lisa Belkin – is done!
Hardly a surprise as we knew going into the holidays that they were to return with only a 22 day stretch ahead of them. We can’t say that we are sorry to see it go as it was a whole lot of effort for very little return – and a whole lot more attitude then necessary to boot. Read the rest of this entry »
On a busy, cold, winter evening, we stopped in at Bergdorf Goodman, on 5th, to crash the Alexa Chung AG launch fete for her new casual wear line. We tried for something a bit more uptown and Eastward but happened on getting caught in crosstown traffic and missed the intended target.
Thank you DiBlasio!
As we waited for a ‘go ahead’ from the event people – although Chung stood three feet in front of us pretending not to see us – a midst a bevy of lookers on and wanna fashionistas, it got us to wondering about exactly why is it the Chung is famous at all? Read the rest of this entry »
What’s a Jennifer Lopez project without the dutiful promotional marathon tour of greater NYC. With La-Lopez’s new thriller “The Boy Next Door,” costarring Ryan Guzman, about to hit the big screen on Friday, Jenny from The Block has been steadfast making the rounds about town.
We caught up – and waited – for the sun-kissed beauty at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and were disappointed when her three car motorcade dropped the tightly booked lady off – in a white ensemble no less – only to have her dash into the facility for being slightly tardy.
We’ll blame DiBlasio and his 25 MPH new law for her delay, which we still can’t fully commit to memory when behind the wheel. Read the rest of this entry »
We woke yesterday to news of “Gotham” being picked up for another season. It was all over the web – seriously, it was like twitter was infested with lice!
So rather than sit our ass and scratch – don’t act like y’all don’t ever do this – we thought it prudent to head out and take a look-see with a stop at their Mt. Vernon location yesterday.
The popular FOX Batman prequel was using the famed Eastchester Savings Bank structure to film their own heist and, although we found not a one principle on set – seriously, with a bevy of primary cast members they didn’t spare a one for this scene – we did find ourselves dead smack in the middle of a masked bank robbery!

Uma Thurman and cast of the NBC American adaptation of “The Slap,” based on the Aussie series of the same name – penned by author Christos Tsiolkas – are busied getting their eight episodes in the can for its Feb debut.
We caught the NY residing statuesque star of such hits as “Kill Bill,” “Even Cowgirls Get The Blues,” and “Savages” making her way to the Harlem set of controversial project and she was gracious enough to make a momentary stop to give us a photo – in 20 degrees!
You have to love Uma. Read the rest of this entry »
Michael Sam has gone and popped the question to his long time beau Vito Cammisano! And from the looks of the photo and accompanying tweet Vito has graciously accepted the bended knee and ring bearing Sam.
No word yet on a date or where exactly the ceremony will take place. But not too early to extend a big ole congratulatory mention to the beautiful couple and many happy returns.
On a recent frigid cold, post-snowy day, we stopped by the Show Me a Hero set and and found Catherine Keener all her lonesome. Initially we were disappointed, we ain’t going to lie about it, as she is never our target shot.
No judging, it’s just not our cup of tea.
We were, however, tickled to find our efforts rewarded, if not with desired principals, with a comedic production involving a coat, a dimwitted PA and Keener for our sole benefit that we almost missed entirely for chuckling so hard. Read the rest of this entry »
