Check out Welcome to Dreamland – a new featurette in which the film’s stars talk about the world Tim Burton has created for Disney’s live-action feature film Dumbo and share with your readers. Plus, tickets for the film are now available for advance purchase wherever movie tickets are sold.
The Lorax is an unsubtle eco-fable that features engaging characters, brilliant 3D and a world that looks suspiciously like that of Despicable Me [it’s from the same creative team]. It’s true to the spirit of Dr. Seuss and just plain spirited.
Danny DeVito is a legend. He’s played TV icons like Taxi’s Louis DePalma, been the most normal guy in swashbucklers like Romancing the Stone; executive produced Reno 911!, Karen Sisco [the second best Elmore Leonard-based TV series after Justified], and directed hit movies The War of the Roses and Matilda. He is, to put it mildly, a Renaissance man.
And now, he’s playing the reprehensible Frank Reynolds on the FX cult hit It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia [Thursdays, 10/9C] which in the middle of its seventh [!] season.
He’s also personable and a lot of fun to chat with, so when I had an opportunity to take part in a teleconference Q&A session with him, I jumped at the chance. So let’s just get to it.
Over the course of its five-year run, Taxi was one of the best-loved sitcoms in North America because its comedy was derived from the creation and development of characters who were fleshed out and felt real – even [or maybe especially] the burnt out, but warm-hearted “Reverend Jim” Ignatowski [Christopher Lloyd] and the Gravases, Latka [Andy Kaufman] and Simka [Carole Kane].
