With word that OSCAR goddess Meryl Streep was set to film exterior scenes of her new film, penned by Diablo Cody, we hightailed it to the Tuckahoe Rd., Yonkers, NY set of “Ricki and The Flash.”  Yes, it was a night shoot but light would be had, or so we thought. Read the rest of this entry »

Naomi Watts and Jake Gyllenhaal (insert) film Demolition on Manhattan’s UES

Aussie star Naomi Watts strolled to the set of her new film “Demolition,” on Manhattan’s UES, yesterday.  We caught the blond beauty leaving her trailer and joining her escort to film scenes at a nearby hospital.

Sadly, Watts grabbed a pair of sunglasses from her accompanying PA before facing awaiting paps.

We last saw the new L’Oreal spokeswoman at the NYFF “Birdman” premiere where she served fashion fierceness.   Read the rest of this entry »

Taylor Kitsch is AdWeek’s new coverboy

Taylor Kitsch, 33, is the new AdWeek coverboy, sporting multiple casual wardrobe looks and a scruffy beard.  Most notable, for us, is the return of the long hair we itched to run our fingers thru way back in X-Men: Wolverine.

There is little denying that the camera loves him.  Panty dropper look, that Canadian has… Read the rest of this entry »

Winona Ryder: Show Me a Hero Visit

Winona Ryder pays Show Me a Hero a visit

Winona Ryder pays Show Me a Hero a visit

Fact:  Actress Winona Ryder defined an era.  From iconic roles in Beetlejuice, Girl Interrupted and Reality Bites, her name was synonymous with talent and her face became the poster child for a certain disenfranchised generation.  So it was little surprise she was enveloped as the perennial Hollywood ingenue.

Then, one day, seemingly overnight, the go-to it-girl of the big screen vacated her title, and there was nothing to report about her – personally or professionally.  Her return to the screen has been much talked about – just don’t call it a comeback.

Oscar Isaac caught taking a break while on the Show Me a Hero set in Yonkers, NY

It’s little secret we’ve been after photos of Oscar Isaac who is presently busy shooting Show Me a Hero in Yonkers, NY.  Not because of the Star Wars news really – took a PA to point that out to us recently.  Yes, we were clueless on the new role he was embarking on (sue us!).

We had been after him cuz, well, a) he is the headliner of the project, and b) loved watching him in Madonna’s W.E. opposite Abbie Cornish. Read the rest of this entry »

Oscar Isaac: Show Me a Hero Trailer

Oscar Isaac makes a speedy get-away from his Show Me a Hero trailer on a rainy day

Shooting photos of Oscar Isaac on the HBO mini-series production of “Show Me a Hero” has proved more difficult than not.  It seems Isaac isn’t feeling the love stemming from our lens. Total bummer as it is pointed in his direction with nothing but…

But Mr. Man hides from us, on the set, at first chance, and shooting him trailer side is even less fruitful.

We kid you not…   Read the rest of this entry »
