“Bridgerton” breakout Regé-Jean Page, Billy Bob Thornton and Alfre Woodard are set to star with Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans in the next film from “Avengers: Endgame” directors Anthony and Joe Russo — a big-budgeted spy and espionage thriller called “The Gray Man” that the brothers will direct at Netflix. Ana De Armas, Wagner Moura, Jessica Henwick, Dhanush and Julia Butters round out the rest of the cast. Joe Russo wrote the script — with a polish by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely — based on the book and series “The Gray Man” by Mark Greaney.

While quarantining in Idaho amid the coronavirus pandemic, the movie star pulled out his space suit costume from 1998’s Armageddon.
Angelina is dating "a handsome, older-looking man who is a real estate agent," according to a new report. While it's "not serious," it certainly sounds like a departure from her past relationships, which were usually with other celebrities and always filled with drama.
Her troubled quality helped the character, but Paramount was uneasy with Angelina Jolie. A new biography of Sherry Lansing has the backstory.
Many of the winners from Sunday’s 74th Golden Globe Awards gave memorable speeches. When Ryan Gosling won for Best Actor in “La La Land,” he joked about being confused for Ryan Reynolds. He then thanked his partner, Eva Mendes, for her support while he was making the film, saying, “My lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second, and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer.” Gosling dedicated his award Mendes’s brother who passed away.
Thirteen years after the release of the now cult classic Christmas movie Bad Santa, Billy Bob Thornton joined Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show to promote the long awaited Bad Santa 2. While there, Thornton was able to get something off his chest that’s been bugging him since the first one came out. As it turns out, the movie poster for Bad Santa we saw here in the US is not the same as in much of the world. Thornton put it best himself.
The 'Bad Santa 2' star tells ET he still talks to his ex-wife 'once in a blue moon.'
Billy Bob Thornton follows up his great role in the first season of "Fargo" with a new star vehicle that requires him to breath life into a far less vital part, in the new David E. Kelley drama "Goliath," which starts streaming on Amazon Prime on Friday. Thornton plays Billy McBride, a washed-up, alcoholic lawyer who goes up against the big Los Angele firm he helped create.
Raunchy trailer reveals much inappropriate behavior as Thornton’s thief Willie T. Stokes teams up with paroled former partner Marcus (Tony Cox) and his equally inappropriate mother Sunny (Kathy Bates) to rob a charity run by Diane (Christina Hendricks)
Willie T. Soke is back, and, as you can see in the first true trailer for Bad Santa 2 (a tease was released two weeks back), Billy Bob Thornton’s character is just the cranky, foul-mouthed horn-dog you remember. November’s sequel to the unlikely 2003 holiday favorite (well, unless you ask my horrified aunt and uncle) returns not only the Sling Blade Oscar winner, but also original costars Tony Cox (as his diminutive partner-in-crime, Marcus) and — thank the lord — Brett Kelly (as the now-21-year-old and still baby-faced Thurman Merman). Noticeably absent is Willie’s love interest Sue, played by Lauren Graham, and sadly fellow castmembers Bernie Mac and John Ritter have both since passed away.
Brief initial teaser indicates sequel will bring star's ne'er-do-well character back in fine, child-insulting form
During a game of “Never Have I Ever” on Ellen, Anthony Mackie prodded his Our Brand Is Crisis co-star Sandra Bullock into revealing a sad story from her youth. When the actors were asked if they had ever hooked up in the back of a limo, Bullock said she hadn’t, to which Mackie responded, “What did you do at prom?” Bullock replied by saying that she went home early because she and her date had already broken up weeks before. Ellen joked that Mackie was going to make Bullock cry, but luckily for him, that never happened.
Hip-hop icon Kanye West is 100 percent serious about running for president in 2020 (even his wife swears it’s true). So we decided to ask the cast of this week’s Our Brand Is Crisis — in which Sandra Bullock stars as an election expert running a presidential campaign in Bolivia — what advice they’d give the 38-year-old musician. Watch their responses above! Billy Bob Thornton didn’t seem to take West’s presidential bid too seriously, making a reference to the time the rapper epically interrupted Taylor Swift’s speech at the 2009 MTV VMAs.
