First Image of Peter Dinklage in HBO film ‘My Dinner With Hervé’

First Image of Peter Dinklage in HBO film ‘My Dinner With Hervé’

He has been developing a script for years, based on the life of the “Fantasy Island” star Hervé Villechaize, with his friend Sacha Gervasi, director of “Anvil!” “He interviewed Hervé right before he killed himself. Sacha was a journalist, sitting here like we are now. After he killed himself, Sacha realized Hervé’s interview was a suicide note.”

This was a dream project for Dinklage. Really happy for him.

From Wikpedia:

His big break was getting cast in The Man with the Golden Gun (1974), by which time he had become so poor he was living out of his car in Los Angeles. Prior to being signed up by Bond producer Albert R. Broccoli, he made ends meet by working as a rat catcher's assistant near his South Central home. From what his co-actor Christopher Lee saw, The Man with the Golden Gun filming was possibly the happiest time of Hervé's life: Lee likened it to honey in the sandwich between an insecure past and an uncertain future. In addition to being an actor, Villechaize became an active member of a movement in 1970s and 1980s California to deal with child abuse and neglect, often going to crime scenes himself to help comfort abuse victims. Villechaize's former co-workers recalled that despite his stature, he would often confront and chastise spousal and child abusers when he arrived at crime scenes.

I feel like I might cry watching this like I did watching Simon Birch.

He looks like a mini Hugo Weaving.

A Hugo Wee-ving, if you will.

He looks like he's painted on the car.

So we can vote for Calculon to check his paperwork?

Interesting, so will these be something like the Telltale video games?

But I picked for him to race to the laser gun battle in his hover Ferrari!

No

There's a Disney film that's very good, but not talked about much: Meet the Robinsons

There's a Disney film that's very good, but not talked about much: Meet the Robinsons

Meet the Robinsons is a very good but underrated film. Here are my reasons on why it is a good film

The characters are wacky and crazy, but they are so fun u want to keep watching.

It's actually emotional, and this movie get u to feel sorry for Louise(the main character)

It's got Adam West

Most movies that go to the future are only ok, the future in this movie is colorful and engaging.

Finally, the message, I love the message that u cannot focus on yesterday but look to tommorow, it's something that people should do more. They worry about failing yesterday and only focus on that when they can move to tommorow and can succeed.

I would go check this film out, it is very underrated.

Edit:Wow!!!! A 1000 upvotes!!!! I never thought this post would get so much attention! Thank you and keep moving forward!

Edit: 10000! Unbelievable, thank u guys, bet there are a lot of people watching this movie tonight!

"Sweet backpack Goob!"

"Hey Goob, wanna come hang out after school?"

They all hated me

"What's going on, why aren't you seizing the boy?!?"

"I have a big head, and little arms! I'm just not sure how well this plan was thought through."

That is gold. I can't tell you how many times we've used some variation of it.

Binder, not backpack. A binder that had a big unicorn on it.

My favorite lines from the movie:

Lewis: "I'm from... uh... Canada"

Future relative: "I think you mean Northern Montana. It hasn't been called Canada in years."

Jurassic World sequel titled "Jurassic World - Fallen Kingdom"

Jurassic Kingdom could've done

Kind of a mouthful, but I'm excited for the "Life Finds a Way" tagline. Especially with the constant teases of Ian Malcolm returning.

Uh. Well. There it is.

For those who felt disappointed by JW, here's the good news about this movie:

It's directed by horror director J.A. Bayona who recently directed A Monster Calls. It's confirmed by Trevorrow that the movie will be more suspenseful and much scarier and darker than JW. There will be a lot more practical effects in this one than in JW. Bayona apparently even "fought" with producers to use many animatronics. Cromwell talked about sets being as big as football fields. It will explore more complex themes than JW and expand on what JP had, such as humanity's responsibility to take care of these newly created animals.

edit: And Jeff Goldblum of course.

I really hope he narrates a portion of it.

Han Solo: I got this

Narrator: He didn't

Disney: Will you do what you're told, even if you don't agree with the story direction or plot?

Ron Howard: I made 3 Dan Brown movies, didn't I?

Disney: You're hired.

Narrator: It was right about then when Han got a bad feeling about all of this

Han: I've made a huge mistake.

Why don't people fucking listen when Jackie says he doesn't want any trouble? We did this to him.

I have no clue what this is about but I'm already in.

Going to go out on a limb here and say Jackie is a foreigner in a country who gets picked on by xenophobic nationals and he gets "pushed too far" and goes on an ass kicking rampage. Seems very likely.

EDIT: Holy shit this post blew up. Upvoted all Rumble in the Bronx mentions.

This is somewhat out of nowhere.Didn't expect Fincher to do this type of movie again.Always wondered if he would be up for a CBM movie but i guess a zombie movie could be fun too.

This is like when you ask the hottest girl to the prom and she says yes and you don't know what to do next because you didn't expect her to say yes.

i wouldn't know because I went with a girl who liked me as a friend and hooked up with my other friend on our prom bus. But that was like five years ago so I should probably let it go and drink a Pepsi and walk into a hospital hallway of zombies

Pitt is easygoing, but I don't think he gets nearly enough credit for acting. He's constantly seen as the pretty boy when he's actually a world-class actor. If you think about his range, he's done incredible work like Fight Club, Inglorious Basterds, and Snatch without breaking a sweat. Guy deserves an Oscar sometime soon imo.

Edit: *an acting Oscar. I know he technically has one for 12YAS

He'd make the perfect detective thriller for Batman. Probably the best man to show off the World's Greatest Detective part of the character, which is also something not really highlighted well in the movies thus far so it would be it's unique angle.

Carnage To Be Villain In Venom Movie

This sounds so cool but the fact it's not in the MCU and spiderman is in the MCU is really confusing.

Machinist-skinny American psycho Christian Bale for Carnage vs. big guy Tom Hardy Venom.

The rematch of the century

It's got really confusing in the past few days, Sony has basically said that it is canon with Homecoming, but Feige has said it's not MCU.

Basically, it looks like a kind of Venn diagram. Homecoming is in the middle, with MCU on one side and Sonyverse on the other. Essentially that means there's nothing stopping Tom Holland appearing canonically, but not a character like Ant-Man.

EDIT: Just realised that Ant-Man has appeared in the advertising through Peter's secret Civil War recording. I guess Dr. Strange is a better example, however, I extremely doubt that there will be any Avenger presence in future Sonyverse films.

How does everyone involved just realize they have creative differences 5 months or so into production?

Can we get a collective

Fuuuuuuuuuuuccckkkkk

George Lucas

Probably "Hollywood speak" to cover up some major problem they had on set. Nobody leaves a film that is 90% shot like this. The only similar situation was WB firing Paul Schrader from "The Exorcist" prequel in 2004 and reshooting the entire film with a new director.

Daniel Day-Lewis Quits Acting

Maybe he's method acting for a role as an actor who quits acting.

Should say, Daniel Day-Lewis quits acting...again

I'm sure he'll quit acting, at least until another director convinces him to do another role (e.g. Scorsese and Gangs of New York). Day-Lewis seems incapable of full-on, Hackman-like commitment to retirement.

Instructions not clear, I accidentally went too far and became Brendan Fraisier

EDIT: Holy duck, that's my first gold!!!!!

EDIT2: I'm filled with emotion right now. I am grateful, anonymous person
