Tag: Tim Robbins (1-4 of 4)

On the scene with Gwyneth Paltrow, Pink, Josh Gad, more at the 'Thanks for Sharing' premiere

“Oh I’m not an actress,” said Alecia Moore (aka Pink) at the Los Angeles premiere of Thanks for Sharing. “I was like, ‘ok, why me?’” she laughed. “You want me to do the soundtrack?”

Modesty seemed to be the theme at the ArcLight Hollywood Monday night, which stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim Robbins, Patrick Fugit, Josh Gad, Moore, and director Stuart Blumberg turned out to celebrate their film that opens in limited release on Sept. 20. Despite the rom-com marketing Thanks for Sharing is actually a somewhat dark multi-story look at the world of sex addiction. Blumberg, who co-wrote The Kids Are All Right, said, “I wanted to explore not just when people go down the rabbit hole, but when they try to come up.”

See the 'Thanks for Sharing' poster with Gwyneth Paltrow and Mark Ruffalo

We’re addicted to stories about sex addiction.

The ailment gets the romantic dramedy treatment in Stuart Blumberg’s directorial debut Thanks for Sharing, a multi-character story about three sex addicts in therapy and their attempts to live in the world. Gwyneth Paltrow and Mark Ruffalo lead the ensemble cast as Phoebe and Adam, a new couple just trying to make things work in spite of Adam’s addiction.

Josh Gad and Pink also feature heavily in the film as a pair of addicts who seem to find solace and comfort in each other’s company. Co-written by Blumberg (The Kids Are All Right) and Matt Winston, the film premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, and co-stars Tim Robbins, Joely Richardson, and Patrick Fugit.

The trailer teased a bittersweet tone reminiscent of The Kids Are All Right, but, how do you make a poster about such a complicated, and seemingly R-rated subject matter? Take a look after the jump and let us know what you think.

Casting Net: Tina Fey teaming up with the 'Muppets.' Plus: Josh Brolin, Christopher Meloni entering 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'

• Tina Fey once made a muppet-y episode of 30 Rock, and she’s once again returning to the world of felt skin and feather hair. The upcoming Golden Globes cohost is in final talks for a lead role in the sequel to 2011′s The Muppets, as a guard in a Russian gulag. She’ll join Ricky Gervais and Ty Burrell. Director James Bobin is returning for the second installment, writing the screenplay with Nicholas Stoller. [THR]

• Josh Brolin and  Christopher Meloni are joining the growing ensemble cast of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Brolin, whose casting was announced by Dimension Films, will play a younger version of Clive Owen’s character Dwight from the 2005 Sin City. In the new film, Dwight is hounded by an ex-flame, ultimately leading him to change his face into Owen’s visage. Meloni, meanwhile, will play a (likely dangerous) cop. They join returning actors Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, and Jaime King, and new recruits Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert, and Jamie Chung. Like the last film, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller will both write and direct. [Deadline]

• Will Forte and Tim Robbins have signed up for The Switch, and in one of Hollywood’s nice little ironies, they’re taking over roles originally occupied by Ty Burrell and Dennis Quaid, respectively. Based on the Elmore Leonard crime novel of the same name, the film will serve as something of a prequel to Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown, with John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) playing younger versions of Robert DeNiro and Samuel L. Jackson’s career crooks from Tarantino’s film. Robbins will play the wealthy husband of the woman (Jennifer Aniston) they kidnap, and Forte will play a man who witnesses the crime. Dan Schechter (Supporting Characters) is directing from his script.
