    OT -
    I see Jared’s got yet another Cory Monteith\Glee theread. I don’t mean to sound callous…actually, I don’t care if I do…but…how the hell much longer are we going to have to see stories about Cory Monteith, Glee and that chick he dated? They’re carrying on like Elvis just bought the farm. They guy OD’ed by his own stupidity. He wasn’t murdered. He wasn’t killed in a tragic car\train\plane accident. He wasn’t the victim of anything but his own demons. He stuck a needle in his arm and drank too much booze. Why do they keep carrying on as if this guy was any more special than any other junkie who’s ever od’ed? Enough already. They’re millking the guy’s death for PR for Glee. It’s not a hot show any more and they need all the ratings help they can get. Just stop acting like it’s anything more than that.

    Greetings fans! I haven’t been to the site in ages and I still see the nonsense from the trolls. “unbroken” will be a worthy movie & Ange will do justice to it.

    Good to read your posts PT! You are still on a roll :)

  • To: PT

    PT or anybody else, what do you think of the article in Deadline Hollywood on finding new bosses for Maniston’s “Horrible bosses 2″ i don’t think the studio wants the old hag back. Initially in Hollywood reporter, when they wrote about doing a sequel they said the 3 (bateman, Sudeikis, Day) already signed would be back but they would be getting new bosses to replace the old ones. With Maniston approaching 50, i tend to think they want to get rid of her and get a younger boss. Despite her small victory lately, i don’t see her coming back as a stripper or her unflattering roles in both the Miller and HB 2. I’m guessing studios will not want her for sequels coz she will be hitting close to 50, hence they can get younger actresses for the raunchy roles she’s been doing

    @Angie and Brad beautiful love:
    ” no other woman would have the courage to do 10 % of the things Angie do.”

    courage than Jolie has in her finger
    Jolie is only money and HOLLYWOD not courege !!!


    Rebecca Welsh was volunteering in orphanages in Honduras in 2002 when she had an eye-opening encounter with a child living on the streets.
    “A 6-year-old little girl stopped me and begged me for water,” she says. “She traveled in a pack of about 10 children and was the youngest in the group.”
    She soon found out the children, who couldn’t get shelter in the city’s overflowing orphanages, slept on cardboard boxes at night and dug through trash to find their next meal.
    “I just couldn’t believe that was going on and I’d never even heard of it,” she says.

    That encounter – and her work at the orphanages where she used art to create a bond with the kids – led to her forming the HALO Foundation (Helping Art Liberate Orphans) in 2005.
    The nonprofit has raised more than $2 million to buy food, shelter, education, water and clothes for 3,000 kids in 11 orphanages around the world.
    “I really want to give these kids a chance to live a normal life,” says Welsh, 34, who lives in Kansas City, Mo., “and have food and all their basic needs met because they deserve it.”
    She auctions off the childrens’ artwork to raise money for the foundation; something that started after Welsh got inundated with artwork the orphans sent her as a thank you.

    “I thought the best way to share their work was to showcase it,” she says, “and raise funds that would go back to the children at the same time.”
    It worked.
    “The average kid’s piece now sells for around $500,” she says. “That amount provides dinner for an entire orphanage for 50 nights.”
    The foundation also operates learning centers in two cities in the United States, including Kansas City, to help foster children and other at-risk youth learn life skills and help them heal through art therapy.

    “I think anyone who puts time and energy into improving the lives of kids is wonderful,” says Sister Berta Sailer, co-founder of Operation Breakthrough, which provides child care and other social services for the working poor in Kansas City.

    “I think it’s so important the kids everywhere feel valued,” says Sailer, who has worked with Welsh’s foundation on a few projects in Kansas City, “and have their needs met and activities designed for them.”

    Kiki, 13, who started coming to Welsh’s Kansas City center in 2010 after two years of being homeless, can attest to that.

    “It helped me to become a better leader,” she says, “and to learn how to talk to people in a better way.”

    Kiki says her favorite part is Interplay, where kids use dance and song to express their feelings.

    “We dance and sing and yell and let out a lot of feelings, like anger,” she says. “I feel relaxed and tired afterward.”

    Welsh says she still gets a thrill when she hears a story like this.

    “It makes me feel like my purpose in life is fulfilled,” she says. “I know this is what I’m here to do. I feel very blessed.”

    Earlier this year, I was guessing Disney’s $250mil top-secret project with Brad Bird TomorrowLand was somthing related to Nikola Tesla.
    Next year will be Bird’s TomorrowLand vs Chris Nolan’s Intestellar ?
    Is Disney making a movie about Nikola Tesla?
    A few months ago I got an email from Disney asking me to come down to Burbank to consult with them on an upcoming film: TomorrowLand.
    Directed by Brad Bird and starring George Clooney, I was thrilled…….

    Angelina Jolie says Louie Zamperini’s Unbroken story has ‘made me a better person’

    It is the beautiful and unlikely friendship that led Angelina Jolie to Australia.The Oscar-winning actor has opened up about her friendship with 96-year-old Louis (Louie) Zamperini, an American hero whose extraordinary story will be told in Jolie’s film Unbroken.


    I am a fan who has learned so much. He has made me a better person. Jolie and Zamperini met as neighbours in the Hollywood Hills and despite their near 58-year age gap have since spent many hours together, discussing his life story. Jolie says it is a real privilege to bring his story to screen.”It will be hard to make a film worthy of this great man,” Jolie said, in a statement released by Universal Pictures. “I am deeply honoured to have the chance and will do all I can to bring Louie’s inspiring story to life.”

    Zamperini is also clearly pleased to have Jolie on board as the director of the film, which is being made in Australia. “Angelina is a human dynamo, and I know she will tell this story in the right way,” Zamperini said.


    It has taken more than 55 years to bring it to screen – Universal Pictures first acquired the rights to Zamperini’s story in 1957. But plans for it to be a Tony Curtis film did not eventuate.Interest in Zamperini’s tale has been renewed in the States in the last three years because of the popular book by author Laura Hillenbrand, titled Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption.


    It detailed Zamperini’s life story as a US Olympic athlete in the 1930s, before he enlisted in the air force. He was one of only three survivors of a plane crash that killed eight men in 1943.After floating on a life raft for 47 days, two of the men – including Zamperini – were found and then imprisoned by Japanese forces. (The third survivor died after a month at sea.)


    But one of the more extraordinary parts of Zamperini’s story was his forgiveness; he became a deeply religious man, who met with (and forgave) many of the guards who had held him captive.Jolie said his remarkable life has changed her.”Like all readers of Laura’s book and all people who love and admire Louie, I am a fan who has learned so much. He has made me a better person,” Jolie said.


    Zamperini said he had been inundated with letters from readers of Hillenbrand’s book but he hopes the film will create an even wider audience.”I’ve received so many letters and talked to so many people who say that Laura’s book has helped them when they were going through hard times,” he said. “I believe the movie will reach even more people with that message.”


    Jolie confirmed earlier this month that she will be filming Unbroken in areas of New South Wales and Queensland, after initially travelling here (with her children in tow) to scout possible locations for the movie.Parts of the film will be made in Sydney and north-west NSW, in the Tamworth region.


    As a touching tribute to the pair’s friendship, Jolie has revealed she will wear one of Zamperini’s gold running pendants – a prize from his early career as an athlete – on each day of filming.British actor Jack O’Connell, who has starred in TV hit show Skins and just completed filming 300: Rise of an Empire, has been cast as Zamperini in Jolie’s film.Unbroken has already been tentatively scheduled for release by Universal Pictures in the US in December 2014, with the Australian release date expected to be in January 2015.

    @Passing Through: #59, good morning PT. I totally agree with you about the Glee and the never ending trying to paint CM as this innocent man that just got sick and died. I heard his GF saying there was “No greater man”, give me a break. What has he done for anyone? He was a talented young man on a tv show who used hard drugs for years and died of his own hands. Enough with the over hype. Let him rest in peace.

    @love the Jolie Pitts, hi love, hope you’re feeling fine. Have a great day.

    @ Premalee, hi Prem, just wanted to say hi. I thought we going to have a storm yesterday and today. Where did the rain went? I’m guessing NJ?

    @ Yolly, thanks for the shout out. @ Briseis, good morning to you.

    @were the morons, hi lady, sorry we missed each other most of the time yesterday.

    @Shi Baby, hi Shi, have a great day. @NAN, good morning nan. @Go Figure, how are you lady. Next week HLN will be featuring a new Murder trial about a doctor who drowned his wife in the bathtub. I believe it’s going to be Interisting.

    Angelina Jolie’s New Movie Spoils Its Own Ending With First-Look Image

    Spoiler alert: that is image is what happens at the end of Angelina Jolie’s next movie. OK, so it probably won’t actually be in the movie, but it does reveal the ending of the story at the center of Unbroken, which Angelina Jolie is gearing up to direct this month. Based on the book by Laura Hillenbrand, it tells the story of Louis Zamperini, a runner who competed at the 1936 Olympics (hosted by Hitler!) then enlisted to fight in World War II. When his plane crashed in the Pacific he survived 47 days at sea, then was captured by the Japanese and endured years in a brutal Japanese prison camp. And, as you can see in the photo, he eventually got to meet Angelina Jolie. What a life.
    The fact that Zamperini survives is, obviously, not a spoiler– people don’t tend to make biopics about people who endure a ton of hardships during the war and then eventually die. And the fact that Zamperini is still alive has allowed Unbroken’s star, newcomer Jack O’Connell, to get to know the man he’ll be portraying– according to the release that accompanied this photo, O’Connell tried on Zamperini’s World War II bomber jacket, and it was a perfect fit.
    O’Connell, who’s already being eyed for some other high-profile roles, will be joined in the film by Domhnall Gleeson and Finn Wittrock as two other POWs. When I talked to Gleeson last week about his role in the upcoming About Time, he told me they were preparing to shoot scenes from later in the film, in which the three soldiers are starving; that had Gleeson on a strict diet that got him to the point where getting to eat a baked potato was an unbelievable luxury. O’Connell and Wittrock are presumably in similar conditions, which means they’ll be thrown into some of the toughest parts of the shoot first thing– but at least they’re that much closer to getting to eat two baked potatoes someday.
    Unbroken is currently set for release on Christmas Day next year. You can follow along with the film’s development here. Here’s Hillenbrand’s statement on what inspired her to write the book, which should give you a pretty good idea of the story that Jolie has to work with:

    Eight years ago, an old man told me a story that took my breath away. His name was Louie Zamperini, and from the day I first spoke to him, his almost incomprehensibly dramatic life was my obsession.

    It was a horse–the subject of my first book, Seabiscuit: An American Legend–who led me to Louie. As I researched the Depression-era racehorse, I kept coming across stories about Louie, a 1930s track star who endured an amazing odyssey in World War II. I knew only a little about him then, but I couldn’t shake him from my mind. After I finished Seabiscuit, I tracked Louie down, called him and asked about his life. For the next hour, he had me transfixed.

    Growing up in California in the 1920s, Louie was a hellraiser, stealing everything edible that he could carry, staging elaborate pranks, getting in fistfights, and bedeviling the local police. But as a teenager, he emerged as one of the greatest runners America had ever seen, competing at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, where he put on a sensational performance, crossed paths with Hitler, and stole a German flag right off the Reich Chancellery. He was preparing for the 1940 Olympics, and closing in on the fabled four-minute mile, when World War II began. Louie joined the Army Air Corps, becoming a bombardier. Stationed on Oahu, he survived harrowing combat, including an epic air battle that ended when his plane crash-landed, some six hundred holes in its fuselage and half the crew seriously wounded.

    On a May afternoon in 1943, Louie took off on a search mission for a lost plane. Somewhere over the Pacific, the engines on his bomber failed. The plane plummeted into the sea, leaving Louie and two other men stranded on a tiny raft. Drifting for weeks and thousands of miles, they endured starvation and desperate thirst, sharks that leapt aboard the raft, trying to drag them off, a machine-gun attack from a Japanese bomber, and a typhoon with waves some forty feet high. At last, they spotted an island. As they rowed toward it, unbeknownst to them, a Japanese military boat was lurking nearby. Louie’s journey had only just begun.

    That first conversation with Louie was a pivot point in my life. Fascinated by his experiences, and the mystery of how a man could overcome so much, I began a seven-year journey through his story. I found it in diaries, letters and unpublished memoirs; in the memories of his family and friends, fellow Olympians, former American airmen and Japanese veterans; in forgotten papers in archives as far-flung as Oslo and Canberra. Along the way, there were staggering surprises, and Louie’s unlikely, inspiring story came alive for me. It is a tale of daring, defiance, persistence, ingenuity, and the ferocious will of a man who refused to be broken.

    The culmination of my journey is my new book, Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption. I hope you are as spellbound by Louie’s life as I am.

    ‘Maleficent’: Angelina Jolie Disney movie reshot by ‘Snow White’ director

    Maleficent is to be reshot under the direction of John Lee Hancock.

    The director recently worked on Snow White and the Huntsman. Bosses at Disney are said to want the first few scenes redone.

    The Sleeping Beauty film, starring Angelina Jolie, sees Oscar-winning production designer Robert Stromberg making his directorial debut.

    Producer Joe Roth told The Hollywood Reporter: “We asked [John Lee Hancock] to be on set. He’s not directing. He wrote pages and I hired a first-time director and it’s good to have him on set.”

    He added: “The movie is gorgeous to look at and the last 75 minutes are really entertaining.”

    None of the reshoots will have to involve Jolie, who is currently preparing to start her latest directional project Unbroken in Australia.

    The World War II biopic focuses on the life of war hero Louis Zamperini and stars Skins actor Jack O’Connell.

    Louis Zamperini gave Angelina Jolie special gift before filming ‘Unbroken’
    Angelina Jolie is in Sydney, Australia, to direct “Unbroken,” a film about an Olympic runner turned World War II POW and hero.Louis Zamperini, 96, placed eighth in the 5000m at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. In 1943, as an Army bombardier, he survived 47 days in the Pacific Ocean with two other men after their military plane crashed and then two years at a Japanese POW camp.


    Jolie and Zamperini met last winter, and the Olympian gifted Jolie a gold pendant in the shape of a running shoe, “a prize from his running days,” according to People, which reported she planned to wear it during filming.“Angelina is a human dynamo, and I know she will tell this story in the right way,” Zamperini said, according to the magazine.


    English actor Jack O’Connell will play Zamperini. The film is scheduled to be released in December 2014.

    The film is based off a book written by Laura Hillenbrand, “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption.” Hillenbrand also wrote “Seabiscuit,” which was made into a film, too.

    “Like all readers of Laura’s book and all people who love and admire Louis, I am a fan,” Jolie told People. “It will be hard to make a film worthy of this great man. I am deeply honored to have the chance.”

    Good Morning Rose

    How are you on this beautiful day my dearest sister, Rose you took the words out of my mouth when you said Angie & LZ reminds you of a grandfather and his granddaughter, exactly what I thought upon seeing it first thing in the morning. That one photo is so overwhelming with sensitivity yet it also pours out the love & respect these two have for each other, just brought tears to my eyes. I wonder who took the photo can you Imagine if it was Brad that would be icing on the cake dont you agree Rose.


    Rose I found it so sad to see that Trolls still posted away more hate regardless, with out even showing any respect to a War veteran like LZ, that is just disgusting that human beings like these still exist , let me correct myself not human beings these are parasites that only know the language of hate.

    Watch Chiwetel Ejiofor Transform Into Solomon Northup in ’12 Years A Slave’
    Fox Searchlight has just released a video chronicling British born Chiwetel Ejiofor‘s journey to becoming Solomon Northup–a free man from Philadelphia who was kidnapped and sold into slavery for 12 years.

    The video shows the depth of focus and concentration required to transform into a character, who cycles through deep and complex emotions for nearly every frame of the film.


    “I knew it was Chiwetel,” Director Steve McQueen said. “I have been watching him for a long long time and I always felt that he was able to sort of reach that sort of performance and I knew that he could do it.”

    “12 Years A Slave” opens in theaters October 18 in select cities, then spreads to the mass market in successive weeks.


    The cast includes: Michael Fassbender, Lupita Nyong’o, Paul Dano, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ruth Negga, Adepero Oduye, Alfre Woodard, Scoot McNairy, Garret Dillahunt, Brad Pitt, Michael K. Williams, Paul Giamatti, Sarah Paulson and others.

    Angelina Jolie’s ‘Unbroken’ In Talks With Jordan Patrick Smith


    It’s a leap from soap star to POW, but Deadline has learned that Aussie Jordan Patrick Smith is in negotiations to join the cast of the Angelina Jolie directed Unbroken. Based on Laura Hillenbrand’s 2010 bestseller, the pic tells the tale of Olympian and war hero Louis Zamperini who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII—only to be caught by the Japanese and sent to a POW camp. Jack O’Connell is set to play Zamperini, with Garrett Hedlund and John Magaro also in the film. Recently seen down under for the past three years on Neighbors, Smith would play Cliff, an Australian prisoner who can’t take life in the camp much longer. Set for a Christmas 2014 release, the Jolie-helmed film will be the actor’s feature debut. Smith is repped by Untitled Entertainment and Aran Michael in Australia.

    Seeing Zamperini’s World War II bomber jacket, O’Connell asked permission to put it on, which Zamperini gladly gave. The jacket fitted O’Connell perfectly and became one of the first moments of him inhabiting the life of this legendary hero……..I call that a good Oman.

    @Phool: Phool, you said you find it so sad that the trolls don’t even have respect for. War veteran because of their hatred for Angelina. Phool, the trolls are jealous of Brad and Angelina and jealousy is what’s killing them a little at a time every day.

    Phool, I looked up the meaning of jealousy and you can see it fits the trolls to a tee.

    JEALOUSY: is an motion, and the word typically refers to negative thoughts and feelings of insecurity, fear and anxiety over an anticipated loss of something. Jealousy often consists of a combination of emotions such as anger, resentment, inadequacy, helplessness and disgust.

    Now Phool, we see all of this jealousy in the trolls comments. They have negative thoughts about Angelina and Brad even to the point of wishing death….
    They are insecure just like Ticky who have said insecurity was one of the cause of her failed marriage…
    They have fear when they see Angelina is getting lots of adulates and Ticky is stuck in 1998…
    They resent Angie because she is so beautiful and Ticky is looking old and unattractive…
    They feel inadequate in their personal life and they know Ticky feels inadequate being compared to angle…
    They have a feeling of helplessness because they know their is nothing they can say that will turn Angelina’s fans against her…
    They are disgusted with themselves because their is nothing in their life that they can compare to the Jolie Pitts and that keeps them in a state of rage and resentment.

    ITA with all you said Rose, its just a shame these Trolls have no bounds they are beyond pathetic. Yes you are right Jealousy is the key factor that’s playing in these trolls lives and one day this Jealousy will eat them up. Same goes for their loser Idol Ticky.
