Pop-Ed: On Saturday night, here in New York City's Times Square (where this writer, at the time, only happened to be a few blocks from), a car bomb was discovered that failed to detonate. Thankfully, a crisis was averted. Unbeknownst to us New Yorkers, some 220 miles to the south, a bomb did detonate ... and his name was Jay Leno. Yes, the same Jay Leno who earlier this year reclaimed his 'Tonight...

James Caan Talks New Web Venture, Sonny Corleone and Jon Favreau

Posted Apr 28th 2010 at 03:50 PM by Mike Ryan

"I'm trying to become a geek" are not exactly words you would expect to hear from James Caan -- or, as I'm quickly corrected, "Jimmy" Caan. Indeed, though, that is what Caan is aspiring to become with his new online venture, OpenFilm.com. Caan -- along with Robert Duvall, Mark Rydell and his son Scott (pictured, left, with "Jimmy") -- has founded, and sits on the advisory board of, the new online...

Tales of Steven Seagal's Dark Side Come Out

Posted Apr 16th 2010 at 03:58 PM by Mike Ryan

Steven Seagal's mysterious past used to be kind of cool. Now it's seems a lot more sinister. We know he's hard to kill. We also know that he's above the law; he has been marked for death; he's been under siege (twice!); and, if you believe the title of his next film, he's also born to raise hell. But, really, what do we know about the man accused of hiring a woman to be his unwilling -- on call at...

Why 'Date Night' Isn't Really a Date Movie

Posted Apr 9th 2010 at 02:30 PM by Mike Ryan

Picture this scenario: It's Wednesday afternoon, Anytown, U.S.A. Picture a younger man -- maybe a little shy, maybe a little nerdy, maybe his favorite movie of all time happens to be 'The Empire Strikes Back' (Editor's note: There is nothing wrong with a person's favorite movie being 'Empire.' Right? Right!?). Now let's say this young man, finally, musters up enough courage to ask the object of...

Uma Thurman's Career Needs a 'Bill' Boost

Posted Apr 2nd 2010 at 10:33 AM by Mike Ryan

Maybe Uma Thurman should finally take David Letterman up on his 1995 offer to meet Oprah Winfrey -- at this point, considering her latest film's box-office numbers, it couldn't hurt. 'Motherhood' opened this past weekend in the UK and made around $130 at the box office. Now, to be clear about a couple of things: That wasn't a typo where we forgot to add the word "million" at the end of $130....
