Tony Awards on CBS tonight… and the winners are…

HollywoodNews.com: Tonight’s Tony Awards on CBS may turn out to be a big ratings winner. For once, the Tonys have clear sailing all night with very little real competition on the regular broadcast networks. Almost everything else on the tube tonight is a repeat–from “American’s Got Talent” to “The Simpsons.”
Everything on Fox is a repeat. ABC has two first run reality shows–”Secret Millionaire” and “Exteme Makeover.” NBC has just “Dateline” that’s new and then the “Talent” repeat. The only real competition, off network, on cable, will be “True Blood” on HBO and “Mad Men” on AMC. So it’s up to Neil Patrick Harris and the Tony producers–the ball is in their court. They’ll have a slew of stars presenting and performing, and hopefully enough to keep viewers who dip in to see “Once” go up against “Newsies” for Best Musical among the many unknowns of the night. Some of the stars expected include Jessica Chastain, Hugh Jackman, Nick Jonas, Amanda Seyfried, Jim Parsons, Paul Rudd, Ellen Barkin, Angela Lansbury, Candice Bergen, Christopher Plummer, James Marsden, Mandy Patinkin and Sheryl Crow. Bernadette Peters should be there, too, although last night she failed to show up for her Lifetime Achievement Award at the pre-Tony cocktail party.

James Marsden in the Spotlight at Savannah Film Fest

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: James Marsden moved to Los Angeles when he was 19 to pursue a career in acting. He’s currently 38.
“So I just realized that I’ve been doing this for half of my life, exactly,” Marsden told me during a casual one-on-one Friday evening.
Those years spent honing his craft explain why organizers at the Savannah Film Festival chose Marsden as the recipient of this year’s Spotlight Award, which was handed to him on stage at Trustees Theater prior to the Director’s Choice screening. A montage of clips highlighting Marsden’s work emphasized his range: Stoic superhero in the “X-Men” trilogy; Easter Bunny guardian in “Hop;” exuberant dance-show host in “Hairspray,” and; henpecked husband pushed to the brink in “Straw Dogs.”
“You won’t find more polar opposites than that,” he says with a laugh. “I do think I have been afforded the opportunity to play in a number of different sandboxes.”
Marsden started acting professionally in 1993. He received ample amounts of support from family and friends. “In the luck department,” he tells me, “everything sort of lined up for me. I didn’t have to go and get an agent. My father knew somebody who was a casting director before I moved to L.A., so I had representation when I moved there. I had two parents who were extremely supportive of me. That’s really lucky. And then beyond that, you have to be prepared, have an ability, and perseverance. You just kind of have to get it, I guess.”
Marsden gets it. He has worked consistently since starting in 1993, balancing TV gigs with feature films. Yet the actor says he never really felt like he “belonged” to the professional acting community until recently.
“I’ve always believed that as soon as you get comfortable, you’re done,” he said. “I’ve come to terms with that a little bit as I’ve gotten older. I’ll tell myself, ‘OK. You’re going to find work. You’re going to be fine.’ But as an actor, you can go at any time. And that drives you, too, that one day you can wake up and they’ll say, ‘OK, we’re done with you. We’ve seen everything.’ And thinking of that is a nightmare. Realistically, I think I’ve gotten to a point where I can relax.”
Not too much, though. He has five films in the pipeline, including the recently wrapped “Robot and Frank” and the 2012 comedy “As Cool [...]

Robert Pattinson passed over for Jeff Buckley role

HollywoodNews.com: Although Robert Pattinson was interested in a Jeff Buckley role, it seems that he isn’t wanted by everyone.
Pattinson had previously expressed interest in playing Jeff Buckley in the film ‘Greetings From Tim Buckley,’ but ‘Gossip Girl’ star Penn Badgley has snagged the role, states E! News. James Franco, Jared Leto and James Marsden were also rumored to be interested in the role.
However, Badgley will not take the role for granted as he commented on just how excited he is for this part: “To play a man who was singularly gifted as an artist, greatly misunderstood and mythologized as a human being…It’s something very special and sacred. I’m going to give all I can to this project.”
Do you think he was the right choice?

This Week In Movies By Pete Hammond

by Pete Hammond
HollywoodNews.com: Although box office was down again 30% this weekend when compared to last year,it’s clear there is one surefire commodity that works any time of year and that is the time-honored family film.
With Hop overperforming by about $15 million according to most industry pre-release estimates the success of the kiddie flick continues this year . Hop’s estimated three day figure of $38.1 million gives it the year’s best opening, just edging out another family film, Rango which collected $38 mil in its first weekend and now has crossed the $100 million mark. Hop took over the top spot from last week’s surprise Number One, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules which did $24 mil but slipped 54% this week due to increased kid flick competition. Hop , which tells the story of the Hare-apparent to the Easter Bunny , a lovable talking rabbit (voiced by Russell Brand) who hightails it to Hollywood in order to pursue his dreams of being a drummer. There he hooks up with a twentysomething slacker named Fred (James Marsden) who dreamed of becoming the Easter Bunny himself when he was a kid. With hip humor and a bright attitude this live action/animation hybrid may not challenge another famous movie rabbit, Roger, for supremacy in this genre but it works beautifully despite what those grouchy critics at Rotten Tomatoes say. With only a 24% overall fresh rating, critics pounced (not this one, though) but audiences had other ideas and gave it a very promising A- Cinemascore rating which bodes well for coming weeks, especially with spring breaks and Easter coming up. Still it’s going to have to get out of the way of yet another potential family juggernaut, 20th Century Fox’s sensational new ‘toon, Rio which hits theatres in a couple of weeks. Nevertheless Chris Meladandri and his Illumination Entertainment is clearly king of the world right now , at least at hit-starved Universal. Following their one 2010 smash hit Despicable Me , also from Meladandri’s factory, Hop is clearly putting a spring in the studio’s step. Even the aforementioned Rio is being advertised as “from the makers of Ice Age”, yet another Meladandri product. This guy has put Universal into the family / animation game in a big way with lots more in the pipeline. For Russell Brand, doing the voice [...]
