Jonah Hill

Jonah Hill‘s transition from comedy star to Academy Award-nominated dramatic actor has been so quick, he’s made it look almost easy. But as evidenced by the scores of funnymen who’ve tried to make that same leap and failed, it’s not something just anyone can do.

For one thing, it involves making some very tough decisions. Such as turning down roles in what turned out to be two of 2009′s biggest hits, The Hangover and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Of course, it’s obvious now that things have worked out just fine for Hill, but at the time, he said, “most people didn’t understand.” Hit the jump to read about his choices.

In June 2008, I noticed someone familiar in the background of a set photo for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Lester Green, better known to the public as Howard Stern Show wack packer Beetlejuice, was seen hanging around the Princeton University set of  the Transformers sequel. At the time we speculated that Green, who had appeared on the big screen before, in 2001’s Scary Movie 2 and Bubble Boy, might have a cameo in the film. But when the movie came out, Beetlejuice was no where to be found.

As a Stern fan, I always wondered what the story was behind the above photo. Did Beetlejuice film a small cameo that was cut from the completed film? Today we have an answer.

Infographic: Michael Bay’s Bayhem

Michael Bay is well-known for his use of explosions, helicopters, and sheer budgetary mayhem. But what is the breakdown, by movie, of the use of some of those factors? And which of the films managed to turn Bay’s excess into financial gain?

An infographic called The Formula for Complete and Utter Bayhem breaks it down. Check it out below. Read More »

As you probably recall: Back in 2009, actress Megan Fox went public with her professional issues with Michael Bay, calling her Transformers director “a tyrant” and likening him to Napoleon and Adolf Hitler. Fox (unsurprisingly) caught heat for her comments, and though Bay made some attempts to smooth things over, the two continued sniping publicly and eventually parted ways. Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was brought in to replace Fox as Shia LaBeouf‘s even more improbably gorgeous love interest, Fox pursued other projects, and the story should have ended there.

Unfortunately, Fox, Bay, and LaBeouf all have a tendency toward what might politely be called outspokenness, and what might less charitably called a constitutional inability to shut the hell up – and so here we are, a year later, still reporting on this ridiculous story. Bay is attempting to set the story straight. Again. And this time, he’s bringing Steven Spielberg into it for some reason. Sigh. Read the latest chapter in this tiresome and apparently endless saga after the jump.

It is Thursday, April 14th 2011, and I’ve been invited with a small group of colleagues to visit the Paramount Pictures studio lot to talk with filmmaker Michael Bay and see some footage from Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Editing bay visits are usually done, well, in an editing bay — which is usually a small room with an AVID editing system, a couch, and a 50 or 60 inch monitor. This is not how Michael Bay wants you to see his movies — he wants you to see them on the big screen. And what better big screen than the massive screen in the state of the art Paramount theatre.

It took director Michael Bay two years to admit what we already knew. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was “crap.” Bay said as much in an interview with Empire, where he revealed the first look at Sentinel Prime, one of the main players in Bay’s latest film, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which will be released on July 1. Hopefully, that film isn’t “crap,” especially since it’s Bay’s first foray into 3D. Read his exactly quotes, including a backhanded jab at Tron: Legacy, after the break. Read More »
