Once Upon A Time, the fairy-tale meets soap opera, has one of the most vast and eclectic casts on television, intermingling character actors (Robert Carlyle), television stalwarts (House’s Jennifer Morrison) and relative unknowns (Colin O’Donoghue). The list of series regulars totals at eleven and the number of recurring players/guest stars far exceeds even that number. At the end of the second season most of the cast (minus Emilie de Ravin’s Belle) were casting off on Captain Hook’s boat on a mission to save lead Emma’s (Morrison) son Henry from the nefarious clutches of Peter Pan.
In the following round table interview, the cast (Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Colin O’Donoghue, Emilie De Ravin and Michael Raymond-James) preview the upcoming third season, discuss the difficulties in working with green screen and confide how they keep their characters ‘fresh’ after playing them for two-plus seasons. For the full interview, hit the jump.
With just three episodes left until the season finale of the ABC drama series Once Upon A Time, there are bound to be twists and turns and shocking reveals before all is said and done in Season 2. In “Lacey,” Belle (Emilie de Ravin) takes on the cursed identity of Lacey, a young woman who enjoys a good tune, a good drink and a good game of pool, while Mr. Gold, aka Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) wonders if he’ll ever be able to regain her memories and her love for him.
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Emilie de Ravin talked about how fun it was to essentially get to play a new character, the difference between Lacey and Belle, how much fun it is to play the challenging relationship between Belle and Rumple (known to fans as Rumbelle), that viewers will get to learn about her connection to Robin Hood, how amazing the fan support has been, how she thinks fans will react to the season finale, and that her favorite upcoming moment will take place in Mr. Gold’s shop during the finale. Check out what she had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
Most everyone except Emile De Ravin’s Claire Littleton returns for Season Five of Lost. Even some of the dead ones. To that point, when Season Five opens Locke (Terry O’Quinn) is introduced in a coffin and yet spends most of the rest of the season walking around alive (?). Some members of lost flight have returned to the real world, including Dr. Jack Shepherd (Mathew Fox), Hurley (Jorge Garcia) and Kate (Evangeline Lily), while others still stuck on the island are lost in time, with Sawyer (Josh Holloway) settling into the Dharma institute as one of its head security agents. Everything is in chaos, and it looks like those who left the island must return to salve the time-jumping. My review of Season Five of Lost on Blu-ray after the jump.

I can’t help but laugh that the trailer for Remember Me starts with Robert Pattinson’s character quoting Ghandi before getting into a fist-fight. I’m not exactly sure what the point of the film is other than Pattinson is a rebel without a cause and people beat him up a lot. I’ll admit that Pattinson good looking and the camera loves him when he looks like a real person and not an albino with orange contact lenses. He’s obviously trying to find a career beyond Twilight, but I’m not sure another dramatic romance movie where only a good woman can mend his broken soul is going to accomplish that.
Check out the trailer after the jump along with a brief synopsis. Remember Me is currently slated to open in theaters on March 12, 2010.
Until a week ago, I had never seen more than thirty seconds of Lost. There’s a good reason for this: I don’t watch TV. That’s not because I’m a snob, it’s because I always have a pile of movies to watch. And as that is the case, making time to watch television has always been a luxury I’ve denied myself. So, with that in mind there’s going to be two types of people reading this. People like me who never watched the show, and those who are religious about it, or got turned off at some point. I will gear the first part of the review for those who haven’t seen it and the second part for those who have. It’s all after the jump:
I know all the “Twilight” fangirls have “Robert Pattinson” set down in their Google Alerts. One of these days, traffic is going to be really slow and for shits and giggles I’m going to write a story called “Robert Pattinson” and the headline will be “Robert Pattinson” and the text of the story will simply have the words “Robert Pattinson” and then I’ll show a picture of Robert Davi. This will amuse me.
But today I can report really news related to Pattinson. According to Variety, Emile de Ravin, Pierce Brosnan, and Chris Cooper will co-star with Pattinson in Allen Coulter’s “Remember Me”. I was planning to use this title for my documentary on the desperation of reality TV stars, but Coulter wishes to tell the story of a man (Pattinson) whose brother’s suicide has split up his parents (Brosnan and possibly Lena Olin) and left him sleepwalking through life. De Ravin will play a young woman who, after watching her mother get killed before her eyes, seizes life to its fullest. Chris Cooper is in talks to play her father. I don’t understand why more actors wouldn’t want to be involved in this laugh riot. I always say that if audiences don’t leave wanting to ask their doctor about anti-depressants, then your film has failed.
