Speaking with Yahoo Entertainment before the release of his latest film, Last Flag Flying, Linklater says that he and the movie’s trio of stars — Bryan Cranston, Steve Carell, and Laurence Fishburne — took great enjoyment in each other’s company. “These guys are very funny and smart, but also very dramatic” Linklater says. Adapted by Linklater and author Darryl Ponicsan from his 2005 novel, Last Flag Flying tells the story of three Vietnam veterans who embark on an impromptu road trip to bury a young Marine.
Cranston adamant he's not playing a version of Jack Nicholson in Richard Linklater's spiritual sequel to "The Last Detail."
'Too Funny to Fail' looks back at the short-lived ABC comedy 'The Dana Carvey Show,' which failed spectacularly despite having future comedy stars including Stephen Colbert, Louis C.K. and Steve Carell on staff.
Bryan Cranston had one mission when he signed on to play Vietnam veteran Sal Nealon, in Richard Linklater‘s new Last Flag Flying alongside Steve Carell and Laurence Fishburne. “I know guys like him! He’s that kind of guy who takes up air in the room, and yet he’s also a tried and true friend.” Even friends can have disagreements, of course, and Cranston reveals that there are some fundamental differences between him and Sal.
"He was just a master of emotion and it was an act," Steve Carell says about his 'Battle of the Sexes' character, "male chauvinist pig" tennis player Bobby Riggs.
Despite weeks of training with a tennis pro, the actor couldn't quite master his serves — which prompted a great reaction from the extras in the stadium.
The results have lifted Minion-powered franchise past "Shrek" series to become highest-grossing animated film franchise of all time globally.
Our sneak peek from the upcoming "Battle of the Sexes" shows Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) making his first pitch for a tennis match against Billie Jean King (Emma Stone).

In celebration of Will Ferrell’s 50th birthday, take a look at some of his most wacky character over the years.
Despicable Me 3 marks the fourth time Steve Carell has channeled the rehabilitated supervillain Gru (including a cameo in Minions), so it stands to reason that the follicly challenged character’s distinctive growl could follow the actor home. Carell admitted to Yahoo Movies at the film’s Los Angeles press day that, in his downtime, he has occasionally channeled Gru, who in the new threequel is revealed to hail from Hollywood’s favorite fictional nation, Freedonia. “It did come in handy when my kids were younger and their friends were over,” said Carell, who was joined by co-star Kristen Wiig (watch above).
What is it about a head full of gray hair on men and women alike? (Looking at you, Helen Mirren .) Forsaking the dye has given these men — who were no slouches in the looks department to begin with — a certain je ne sais quoi. See for yourself.
After diving into the economic crisis of 2008, The Big Short’s Adam McKay is taking aim at one of Washington’s most polarizing figures. Sources tell Variety that Christian Bale, Steve Carell, and Amy Adams are in talks to star in McKay’s untitled Dick Cheney biopic for Paramount. Sources say Bale is on board to play the former vice president, Carell would portray Donald Rumsfeld, and Adams would play Lynne Cheney.
Some of Hollywood’s biggest stars hit the stage at the 74th Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night to present their peers with awards. Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant joked about an orgy, Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn cracked everyone up with Goldie’s inability to read the prompter without her glasses, and Kristen Wiig and Steve Carell made everyone laugh with really depressing stories.
Before they hit it big, some of Hollywood’s A-listers got their start in tiny roles. Of course, you probably forgot about them or never even saw them to begin with!
Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, and Ryan Gosling — with those names getting top billing (in the exclusive poster above), you might think they’re the leads in a Legends of the Fall sequel. But no, the three heartthrob actors are seriously subverting their sex appeal in The Big Short, about a group of obscure finance guys who saw the credit and housing bubble collapse of the 2000s coming from miles away. Also starring Steve Carell and an ensemble that includes Oscar winners Marisa Tomei and Melissa Leo, the film marks a departure for director Adam McKay, best known for slapstick comedies Anchorman and Step Brothers. But, as McKay told Yahoo Movies in September, he geeked out on the material, based on the best-selling nonfiction book by Michael Lewis, who also wrote the true tale that became Sandra Bullock’s The Blind Side.
