Courtney Love appears at last night’s New York premiere of “Our Idiot Brother”

HollywoodNews.com: Steve Coogan may play a philandering jerk in “Our Idiot Brother” with Paul Rudd, but when ex former, er, adventurer Courtney Love appeared at last night’s New York premiere, the British actor split fast. And no wonder: we were all on a roof of a big new shiny apartment tower on West 42nd St. where the movie was screened outdoors after cocktails.
Coogan, who has a reputation for wildness, was pretty sedate before the screening. When he was introduced to the legendary Leslie Caron, Coogan almost bowed. But later, when he crossed paths with Courtney, he simply growled under his breath and made a hasty exit. The two have a not so happy past, something to do with lawsuits.
The rest of the “Idiot” who made it to the lofty premiere had an easier time, including Paul Rudd–who plays the sweet natured “idiot” brother of Zooey Deschanel, Elizabeth Banks, and Emily Mortimer–and Hugh Dancy, who’s become an “overnight sensation” with a bunch of big signings lately. Dancy plays the artful lover of Deschanel’s lesbian character. (She’s partnered with Rashida Jones.)

Maggie Gyllenhaal looks for laughs in ‘vibrator comedy’

HollywoodNews.com: Maggie Gyllenhaal is working overtime.
Soon after it was announced that she was starring with her main man Peter Sarsgaard in a bluegrass Bill Monroe feature, she’s also linked to a period romantic comedy “Hysteria.”
Variety is calling the film a “vibrator comedy.”
Hugh Dancy stars as the doctor and love interest of Gyllenhaal. Dancy’s character apparently works for her father who is being played by Jonathan Pryce. The film is expected to go before the cameras in October.
Speaking to ScreenCrave, Gyllenhaal exclaims, “I play a firecracker whose father is a doctor who is in the business of curing hysterical women. He cures them basically by getting them off and that actually happened. I end up having a sort of unexpected love affair with this guy who works for him, and who by mistake invents the vibrator.”
Gyllenhaal can be seen on the big screen this weekend in the U.K. kiddie sequel “Nanny McPhee Returns.”
“Nanny McPhee 2” has made $62.6 million at the foreign box office already with close to 40% of its ticket sales coming from its country of origin, the U.K.

Paul Rudd joined by handful of comedic talents for “Idiot Brother”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Paul Rudd’s “Idiot Brother” is getting some company.
Hugh Dancy (“Confessions of a Shopaholic,” “Adam”), Kathryn Hahn (“Revolutionary Road,” “Step Brothers”), Academy Award-nominated actress Shirley Knight, and Janet Montgomery (“Black Swan”) have joined the cast of the Jesse Peretz directed, “My Idiot Brother,” a comedy about family and the sacrifices it takes to deal with them.
Currently shooting in New York City the film stars Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Rashida Jones and Adam Scott. Jeanne McCarthy is casting the film.
Ned (Rudd) is an idealist. His three sisters (Banks, Deschanel and Mortimer) are ambitious. Ned crashes at each of their homes, in succession, and brings truth, happiness and a sunny disposition into their lives. In other words, he wreaks havoc.
Adding to this cast of characters, Dancy will portray Christian, a pretentious painter friend of Natalie’s (Deschanel) who tries to help Ned grow as a person by showing him another path; Hahn will play Janet, Ned’s (Rudd) ex-girlfriend who, out of spite, is keeping him from reuniting with his beloved dog Willie Nelson; Knight will portray Ilene, Ned’s overbearing and over-nurturing mother, who would be overjoyed if her son moved back home and; Montgomery will portray Arabella, a controversial British aristocrat that Miranda (Banks) is profiling for her magazine, a piece that could provide Miranda with the big break she has looking for.
“The response to Jesse’s vision for the film and the disastrously funny script by Evegenia and David has been amazing, and we could not be more thrilled with the amazing actors that will bring these characters to life,” said “Idiot” producer Peter Saraf.

Woody Harrelson blasts his way through ‘Zombieland’

By SEAN O’CONNELL
HollywoodNews.com stays on top of the latest DVD and Blu-ray releases so you know which films are worth your time and money. This week, we recommend: Zombieland
With all due respect to George A. Romero, the zombie genre has been done to (un)death. So last year’s fresh, funny horror-comedy hybrid “Zombieland” – now on home video from Sony – ended up being an unexpected pleasure.
Woody Harrelson and Jamie Eisenberg lead audiences through a desolate, postapocalyptic America where 99 percent of the population has succumbed to a sophisticated version of Mad Cow Disease, turning them into brain-craving, flesh-ripping lightning-fast zombies. “Zombieland” is gory, for sure. Blood and guts flow in earnest. But first-time director Ruben Fleischer wisely lightens the overall mood with twisted jokes that contribute to the film’s carnival atmosphere. And the best laugh, no longer secret, involves a famous comedian making a beyond-the-grave cameo. Enjoy!
Grab the DVD for deleted scenes, an audio commentary track, two behind-the-scenes featurettes, visual effects clips and theatrical promo trailers.

Adam
Max Mayer’s tender, sweet “Adam” flew under the radar last year but deserves a second look for its patient approach to young love between flawed individuals their first steps out of the proverbial “nest” and into the real world.
One of them, Adam (Hugh Dancy), happens to have Asperger’s syndrome, which prompts him to see the rodl through a very literal scope. Instead of exploiting the infliction, however, “Adam” lets the relationship between Beth (Rose Byrne) and the boy in her new apartment building unfold organically. Adam’s disorder is but one piece of a relationship puzzle that’s nurtured out of its shell by the performers. “Adam” is a movie about growing up. I think it will grow on people over time.
Supplements on the “Adam” DVD from Fox Home Entertainment include a commentary track, deleted scenes (including an alternate ending), a “Creating Adam” piece and the FOX Movie Channel segment on “Life After Film School with Rose Byrne.”
