'Gangster Squad' trailer: Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin go up against a dirty Sean Penn

When Gangster Squad was filming in Los Angeles last fall, the Internet went a little crazy cooing over the many paparazzi shots of Ryan Gosling decked out in slick 1940s suits and cuddling with an adorable bull dog (and Emma Stone). Oh, and then there was the shot of Gosling beating some guy with a tie iron.

Now the trailer for the fall thriller — about a group of L.A. cops (led by Josh Brolin’s WWII vet) who set aside their badges to declare war on gangster Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) — has finally hit, and the movie looks much more like a beating-a-guy-with-a-tire-iron movie than hanging-out-with-a-cute-pooch movie. Check it out below:  READ FULL STORY

Oscars on the Scene: Jason Segel has a wardrobe malfunction

It may have been a winning night for Jason Segel’s friend and “Man or Muppet” composer Bret McKenzie, but for Segel the ceremony proved bumpy. The Muppets and How I Met Your Mother star was seen cracking up with Best Supporting Actor nominee Jonah Hill and Muppets scribe Nick Stoller when Segel told EW that some buttons had accidentally popped off his tuxedo shirt earlier this evening. His solution? Double-stick tape. “Every woman at the Oscars apparently has double-stick tape,” Stoller laughed. But from which red carpet attendee did Segel get his quick fix?

All 20 Oscar acting nominees pose for official Oscar 'school' portraits. Which is your favorite?

For this year’s Oscars, the 20 acting nominees have posed for photographer Douglas Kirkland in what the Academy calls “Out of Character: Portraits of This Year’s Acting Nominees.” Clicking through them, two things quickly become clear: One, with rare exception, the men weren’t too keen on being creative with their poses. And two, with rare exception, the women were keen on doing anything but a straight-forward pose.

Basically, they’re like the fanciest school portraits ever. Here are my four favorites from the acting categories, starting with Best Supporting Actor (all credits to Douglas Kirkland and AMPAS):  READ FULL STORY

Pitt, Clooney, Davis, Mara and more talk performances, inspiration at annual Oscar luncheon

George Clooney came for the “free booze.” Octavia Spencer was stoked to just be in the “room with all those luminaries,” while Kenneth Branagh claimed it was “the camaraderie” that brought him to the annual Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. But no matter what their reason for attending, most of the folks in the acting categories first stopped by the press room to talk shop, give praise and, in the case of Nick Nolte, threaten to tell a joke (which never materialized).

Here is taste of what the actors had to say about their performances, awards season, and their fellow nominees: READ FULL STORY

'Warrior': Nick Nolte on his winning sports drama and his hope for a '48 Hrs.' reunion at the Oscars

In Warrior, Nick Nolte plays a recovering alcoholic whose destructive addiction cost him his family, including his two sons, played by Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton. In his raging days, Paddy Conlon pushed his boys to be champions — one more than the other, perhaps — and when they enter the world of Mixed Martial Arts fighting, Nolte’s guilt-ridden pop seizes the opportunity to right past wrongs and salvage some sense of family. Characterized by a solemn bearing that masks a volcanic temper, Paddy fits Nolte almost too close for comfort, and it might be the best performance of his career. Last week, the SAG recognized him with a Best Supporting Actor nomination.

Warrior, which arrives on video tomorrow, is the beginning of a career renaissance for the 70-year-old Nolte, who previously earned Academy Awards nominations for The Prince of Tides (1991) and Affliction (1997). He’ll pop up in next year’s star-studded L.A. noir, Gangster Squad, opposite Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, and Josh Brolin. And he plays the mysterious old horse trainer in HBO’s Luck, David Milch’s new drama about life at the racetrack.

Famously garrulous and philosophical, Nolte talked to EW about his latest good fortune and reflected on a career that has had more than its share of ups and downs.  READ FULL STORY
