Comic Book Jobs: Checking Out Craigslist

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Conventions, Editorials, Movies,

Girls LoveIt's that time of the week again! Time to check out my favorite website for job listings in the wide-ranging and eclectic field of comic book jobs.

Here's what's happening on craigslist:

A production company in the San Fernando Valley (California) is "seeking a lead actress for a live action comic book film." For the right superheroine, they'll be $350 per day. "Think comic book meets really goofy lines and fight scenes."

And if you're a guy, they're also looking for a villain. But comic book movie villainy pays less, $125 per day.

The Los Angeles Comic Book And Science Fiction Convention is looking for vendors interesting in setting up at their April 17th show.

Nostalgic Books and Comics in San Gabriel (California) is looking for "any comic-related costume people who may be interested in showing up and being a part of" their Free Comic Book Day celebration.

Gwyneth Paltrow Stunned By Sex Offer

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies,

Gwyneth Paltrow in Elle has revealed she was propositioned for sex in return for a part when she started her acting career.

The Oscar-winning star was left stunned when an unnamed guy suggested they should conclude their meeting in “the bedroom”—an offer she refused.

“When I was just starting out, someone suggested that we finish a meeting in the bedroom, I left. I was pretty shocked. I could see how someone who didn’t know better might worry, ‘My career will be ruined if I don’t give this guy a b**w j*b!’”

Just as it is hard for actresses starting out in Hollywood, Gwyneth insists it is also tough for female stars approaching their 40s. The 38-year-old blonde is stunned by the lack of variety in the roles she is offered, and often feels “dejected.” Speaking in the annual Women in Hollywood issue of Elle magazine, Gwyneth said, “There are a lot of roles that are OK, but there’s little that’s really good, especially for someone my age. Sometimes you find out that something you really liked is going to someone 10 years younger. I find it heartening that and Sandra Bullock have been able to find and create amazing projects.”


Blake Lively Chooses Risky Movie Roles Over Buying an Apartment

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Television, Dating, Style,

Blake Lively on the cover of Marie Claire wants to take risks in her career.

The star - who shot to fame after starring in The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants at the age of 16 - admitted she doesn’t want to “play it safe” in her professional life, as the projects she has worked on so far have been very “commercial.”

“I’m on a very commercial show, so the last thing I want to do is a commercial movie. I wanna take risks, I don’t wanna play it safe. I mean, I could probably make more money if I did more commercial projects. It would be nice to buy an apartment but I’m 22 and I don’t need to yet… I live in New York City. So, I’m able to differentiate between what I want and need and what I want more is to do great roles.”

The 23-year-old actress - who is currently dating Gossip Girl co-star - also revealed despite seeing her boyfriend on set on a daily basis, she considers their relationship to be just like any other: “At the end of the day, you’re just in any relationship. How does anybody go to work every day and come home? You just do it and it either works or it doesn’t.”


Brad Pitt Wants Death Penalty For Oil Spill Executives

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Rants,

Brad Pitt in New OrleansEnvironmentally-conscious has hinted the executives responsible for the Gulf of Mexico oil spill deserve the death penalty.

The star speaks out against those behind the oil rig explosion in April - which caused the worst environmental disaster in US history with millions of gallons of oil flooding into the sea - in a new documentary If God is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise.

“I was never for the death penalty before - I am willing to look at it again,” Brad said of the people responsible for the disaster.

The oil spill, which happened after an explosion on the BP operated Deepwater Horizon rig, resulted in the decimation of wildlife and habitat of marine and coastal animals, as well as loss of livelihood for many fishermen and other people who depend of the area for work. As yet the root cause of the disaster remains unconfirmed.

Brad’s comments are at the end of the documentary, filmed by , about the effects of Hurricane Katrina on the city of New Orleans, Louisiana - the closest major US city to the Deepwater rig - five years after the hurricane devastated the city, leaving 80 per cent of it waterlogged. Brad spearheaded the Make it Right project after the natural disaster, which built 150 affordable and sustainable homes in one of the areas of New Orleans that was worst hit.

Eva Mendes Doesn’t Mind Stripping Down for Roles

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Style,

Eva MendesUnlike many actresses, is happy to be naked on screen.

The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans star is not prudish about uncovering her sexy curves in front of the cameras as long as the part requires it.

“I’ve never had a problem with nudity, but I don’t put it out there without a reason. I’m not an exhibitionist. But, honestly, for my art I’ll do anything almost. I’ll go there.”

Although she is comfortable with nudity, the 36-year-old actress recognises her willingness to embrace her sexuality can influence the types of roles she is offered: “I know I walk a fine line between being a respected actor and being a sex symbol. But I’ve never felt objectified. Nothing you see me do is an accident. I might act like it’s an accident but the opposite is true. I’m incredibly calculated when it comes to my career.”

It seems Eva’s willingness to bare all also extends to her private life. She previously revealed she does her gardening in the nude and thinks her Cuban roots are the source of her naturist tendencies. “I love being naked. I do everything in the nude, even the gardening! We’re Cuban, and it’s a hot island. Why not go nude?”


Russell Crowe Infatuated With Bows and Arrows

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies,

Russell Crowe as Robin HoodGladiator Russell Crowe is “in love” with archery.

The actor learned how to use a bow and arrow ahead of taking on the title role in Robin Hood and believes his training made the movie better.

“It’s a bit like learning golf, which I did for The Insider. And man, I loved it. It’s great. I said to the guy who was teaching me, ‘I’m in love with the flight. I just love it when the arrow is released from the bow…’ and he was like, ‘Well, it’s your sport then.’ We’ve done so much more than we expected to do in the film in terms of being able to get actual shots in there where we can shoot an arrow and a target. But you can only do that sort of stuff if you really take the time to learn the sport. It’s cool man, very cool.”

Russell also singled out a battle scene set in Pembrokeshire, Wales, as his favorite to film: “It was incredible. We had 130 horses going at full gallop on that beautiful beach and 500-odd extras on foot. The adrenaline rush was extraordinary.”
