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 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 »

Meet beauty Shamil Tarpischev, Russia’s tennis tsar and all around bigot, who, while appearing on a Russian talk show alongside former Olympic singles champion Elena Dementieva, referred to the William’s sisters – Serena and Venus – as the “Williams brothers” and pointed out that “it’s scary when you really look at them.”

Ryan Kwanten: DNA Magazine Cover Angel

ryankwanten-dnacoverNothing is sacred in the age of the internet.  You would think True Blood hotness Ryan Kwanten would know that by now.  But assuredly the message has registered with the sexy Aussie.

During a phone-in spot with Down Under’s Kyle & Jackie O radio show a few days ago a fan brought up his one time cover boy status on Australian gay DNA magazine in which he appeared in a pair of nothing more than a set of wings and CK underwear.   Read the rest of this entry »

Luke Grimes: Films Freeheld in White Plains

Actor Luke Grimes, 30, made headlines when he abruptly vacated his role in “True Blood,” seemingly over what was widely reported to be issues with the show’s “creative direction” involving a gay budding romance with Nelsan Ellis’ character Lafayette. (At least that was HBO’s official word on the matter.)  The role was recast and life went on…

Grimes’ camp, however, offered alternate reasons for his departure.  As neither camp relented, it ended in a they said/he said quibble.

That was then and life has gone on…  Grimes presently can be found on his new project “Freeheld,” opposite a bevy of talents.

We have been keeping an eye out for the hunky one during our visits to the set, since day one, and can finally say that our perseverance finally paid off, spotting him walking about on the White Plains location, filming scenes alongside Ellen Page and Julianne Moore.
