It makes sense to bring <a href="/Arnold+Schwarzenegger">Arnold Schwarzenegger</a> back to his signature role. It makes sense to release it on the 4th of July weekend. It makes sense to tone down the violence for a PG-13, and to cast an under-utilized-but-beloved actress from the insanely popular&nbsp;<em>Game of Thrones</em>. It even makes sense to take it back to the original&nbsp;<em>Terminator</em> story, playing&nbsp;with that first film&nbsp;in ways that fans will love to see.</p> <p>The movie itself doesn't make much sense, but it doesn't have to. This is a big summer blockbuster that'll have you switching off your brain and &mdash; best case scenario &mdash; turning on your grin. It's meant to be big dumb fun, and that makes sense. But it's also kind of a shame. It's a shame that after two great movies from <a href="/James+Cameron">James Cameron</a>, no one's figured out another story in this very compelling universe that's as interesting or as clever or as purposeful.&nbsp;<em>Terminator: Genisys</em> is an okay movie, but we didn't want another okay Terminator movie. We wanted Ah-nuld to come back to this world with his guns blazing in a no-holds-barred 120 minutes of madness that would leave us with our jaws on the floor. I don't know what that movie would look like, but after seeing&nbsp;<em>Mad Max: Fury Road</em>, I bet <a href="/George+Miller">George Miller</a> might.</p> <p>Instead we got another CG-monster movie without a soul, just big fights. In that regard it reminds me of&nbsp;<em>Jurassic World</em>, but&nbsp;<a href="/Jai+Courtney">Jai Courtney</a> is no Chris Pratt, so it compares poorly for want of charisma.</p> <p>Speaking of the cast, everyone is good, but no one stands out, leaving Arnold Schwarzenegger in the awkward position of having to anchor a movie while playing a character that isn't supposed to have any human emotions. As the franchise star, Schwarzenegger gets to mug all he wants these days, so he gets a few fun and memorable moments like with this silly robot&nbsp;grin where he draws back his lips and shows every single one of his teeth. If you're curious about seeing <a href="/Emilia+Clarke">Emilia Clarke</a> outside&nbsp;<em>Game of Thrones</em>, she's solid, but doesn't have that same eye-drawing quality she has on the show. Of course her character is made a little more absurd this time around because she's supposed to see Schwarzenegger's Terminator, which she calls "Pops," as her dad. And how do you play that without it being ridiculous?</p> <p>As for the&nbsp;<em>Terminator</em> universe,&nbsp;<em>Genisys</em> does nothing to clear up the mish-mash of timelines, disconnected stories, and various paradoxes that have accumulated over the years. In fact, it just convolutes everything more. This is a movie that embraces the "don't think too hard about it" approach, leaping us into 2017 for no real reason other than it's roughly the audience's present.</p> <p>Schwarzenegger's screen presence goes far toward making the movie more palatable. If anything, his charm has only grown over the years. It's impossible to hate him in this movie when he's clearly having so much fun. So as much as there is to complain about, it's actually impossible to totally hate the movie itself. It's big dumb fun, and sometimes that's enough.</p> <div class="widget left html-widget w80" data-widget-guid="gNtbga91rln" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/html_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="html_widget"><iframe width="800" height="450" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/62E4FJTwSuc" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></div> <p></p> Fri, 3 Jul 2015 15:15:04 -0700 http://www.zimbio.com/Zimbio+Film+Reviews/articles/ctaClTzanZX/Schwarzenegger+Brings+Fun+Terminator+But+Not ctaClTzanZX Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch Might Be Dating <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60" data-widget-guid="zQ-C4G7AXyb" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="zQ-C4G7AXyb"><img src="http://www3.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/G59TIGHxjvDl.jpg" title="Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch" alt="Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch Might Be Dating" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Getty</div> </div> </div> <p>Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara probably thought they had the World's Hottest Couple title sewn up, but <a href="/Rachel+McAdams">Rachel McAdams</a> and <a href="/Taylor+Kitsch">Taylor Kitsch</a> might be throwing their hotness into the ring.</p> <p><a href="http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/rachel-mcadams-and-taylor-kitsch-are-dating-201517">Us Weekly</a>&nbsp;reports that the <em>True Detective</em> co-stars are dating after making a love connection on the set of the HBO drama.

Her award-winning&nbsp;smile, inherent poise, and keen attention to the daily news cycle have flourished under HLN's cable umbrella for the past 14 years.&nbsp;</p> <p>Meade embodies&nbsp;the American Dream in every sense of its definition. She's on top of her career game, has found success in her love for music, and gives back to the community in ways most people can only imagine.</p> <p>We chatted with the brunette beauty&nbsp;about her life's past, present, and future, as well as some unique quirks and regiments that prove how the world of media isn't always&nbsp;pretty.&nbsp;</p> <p>Check out the full interview below and be sure to start your day with her show weekdays, starting at 6 AM ET.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Zimbio: It's almost impossible to imagine a typical day in your busy schedule, but can you walk us through your morning routine?</strong></p> <p><strong>Robin Meade:</strong> On a work day, I'll wake up around 3 AM. That's if I'm not washing my hair. If I'm washing my hair that day, I'll wake up at 2:45. Here's the dirty little secret: you can tell what day of hair washing it is for any female news anchor with longish hair. Day one, the hair is usually straight and real shiny and down. Day two, it probably gets curled back, but down. Day three, it's starting to get questionable. It's either in a side pony or a side braid...the braid is always the giveaway. I'm not saying I don't shower everyday, but washing of the hair is a process when you have curly hair. If it's&nbsp;a side braid, you better watch out buddy! <em>[Laughs]</em>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Z: How soon after you wake up do you immerse yourself in the news-gathering process?&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>RM:</strong> Thanks to the iPad, I drive my team crazy from the time I'm jumping in the shower to the time&nbsp;someone drives me in. In the car, I'm saying "I just heard this on this broadcast and I want to make sure we have this sound bite" or "I just saw this on Twitter."&nbsp;Luckily for me, I can work all the way into work.</p> <p><strong>Z: What happens once you arrive to the studio?&nbsp;</strong></p> <div class="widget right pull-quote-subtle w40 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="Y-EPUV34ACr" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/pull_quote_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="pull_quote_widget"> <p class="text primary"><span class="quotes open-quotes">&ldquo;</span>I remember when the concept of stage fright was introduced to me in third grade and someone said 'don't be nervous' and I was like 'oh, are you supposed to be nervous?'<span class="quotes close-quotes">&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="author primary">&ndash;Robin Meade</p> </div> <p><strong>RM:&nbsp;</strong>The show starts at 6. I'd like so say I give the makeup people ample time to do their job, but I don't. It's terrible of me, but they're kind of like the Nascar pit crew of makeup teams.&nbsp;On a good day, I might give them 15 minutes. Isn't that terrible? I always joke "I'm sure you guys would do a great job, if only I'd give you enough time to do so."</p> <p>The show is live for four hours, 6-10 AM ET, and if there isn't breaking news, that last hour will play again. If there's breaking news, I've got to jump back in and help. It's six hours of me. I joke that I'm tired of hearing myself talk by the end of it. Obviously, I've been really grateful. I'm just grateful that viewers are watching after all these years and that we've become a morning habit for them.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Z: Do you have any unique newsroom rituals, quirks, or habits?&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>RM:</strong> A female anchor in Chicago told me that if cameras are above your eye level, you'll look thinner, younger, and more awake. That is my little trick. This was before Facebook and everybody knowing their pose and the right side of their face. It's funny because now when you see peoples' profile pictures, everyone raises a camera...as if they know what they're doing. I'm always asking the cameras, "can you move up?"</p> <p><strong>Z: You've got an impressive music career under your belt. Have you always been a performer?&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>RM:</strong> I'm no Beyonce, but I'm really grateful that I'm at a point in my news career where my bosses understand both sides of my personality and let me express myself through music. Growing up, I was a preacher's kid, so I thought everybody got up and sang in front of people. It seemed normal to me. I remember when the concept of stage fright was introduced to me in third grade and someone said "don't be nervous" and I was like "oh, are you supposed to be nervous?" As I grew, my dad encouraged music in the home and at school, but he was like "I'm not encouraging you to be a rock star or a country star. I don't want you to go into music as a field." So I was in high school by this time and I thought "darn" because I wanted to pursue music professionally. I started writing songs on my own a little bit, but I was like "what am I going to do now?" I remember thinking I was going to be a music teacher and then, funny enough, someone told me in high school that to be a music teacher, you had to learn every single instrument in the band. Whether that was true or not, I don't know, but I was like "oh, hell no. I'm not learning every instrument."</p> <p><strong>Z: So what led you to a career in journalism?</strong></p> <p><strong>RM:</strong> For a long time in high school, I wasn't sure what I was going to do. I took an aptitude test and mine came back and said communications, reading retention, and creative writing were my strengths. There was also a question with a blank space asking "what field would you go into?" I grew up in a corn field, so I wasn't graced with knowing what types of opportunities there were if I was willing to move to a city. So I glanced over at my friend's paper and she had the same results and wrote down broadcast news anchor. I went "that is a fine idea!" and that's where my whole life came from. Can you believe that?&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Z: You've performed with David Foster, headlined a Vegas show, and been featured at special events/concerts. When did you get your big music break?&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>RM:</strong> My family was supportive of [broadcast journalism] as my field of study in college. In the meantime, I still kept up the vocal lessons, performing at pageants, and eventually winning Miss Ohio.&nbsp;The deeper I got into my news career, the more I missed music. I felt like that was another part of my being that I wasn't honestly expressing. When I was in Chicago working as a news anchor, I secretly started making trips to Nashville to dabble in song writing. When I saw myself here at HLN, a lot of my stories kept intersecting with country music stars. I happened to get Lady Antebellum's first CD and I read that Victoria Shaw was one of the producers. I then said to my husband "I'm going to work with her some day." I'm sure he was all "she's tripping...you just opened up a CD and you saw a female's name and thought 'I'm going to work with her some day.'" Well, I must control the universe because a while later I was hosting a live competition show for the GAC Network and Victoria was a judge. You better believe afterwards I cornered her and asked her to teach me how to write songs. She said yes and I kept driving up to Nashville to meet with her. Before you knew it, we basically had half of an album written. She was kind enough and generous enough with her time and she said "do we have a project here?" I said "yeah, we've got a project here!" and through different connections we did two albums for Target exclusively and both of them are on iTunes. I can't go out on tour or be a full-time music writer -- I have to have my butt in the anchor seat -- but I'm so grateful that I get to express that side and that people actually come [to listen].

Do you feel like you have to filter yourself often or have you gotten into a groove?&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>RM:</strong> I've gotten into a groove. A lot of our viewers watch our show and then they go away to different networks. Maybe they have political allegiances, but they have an innate feeling that I'm very strict about making sure that people from both sides have fair times. Not just equal time, but I'm also cognizant of balancing&nbsp;serious stories with light and fluffy. Sometimes there will be a story where you have to comment, but it won't be politics.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Z: We love that you have made rescue dogs one of your missions. Can you tell us about your precious pooches and why you've donated your time to the cause?&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>RM: </strong>I have Reese - she's probably about nine by now. My husband Tim found her on <a href="https://www.petfinder.com/">Petfinder</a>&nbsp;and he said he was looking for a dog that was an adult, but still had that puppy face. It just so happens that she was going to be at the neighborhood PetSmart. You go and you just fall in love with the dogs because you feel so sorry for them when they are outside waiting to be adopted. She is just a love. We call her The Buddha because she's a steady presence, very calm, very balanced. She's just a great constant in our life.&nbsp;</p> <p>Little Tessa...on a Saturday or Sunday when the rescue dogs were at PetSmart, we went to get Reese food. All of the cages were lined up, but they were empty except for one. This little dog was there before all of the other little doggies and she had a pink handkerchief that said Tessa. My husband fell in love -- he's a softie. We decided Reese needed a little sister, so those are our two little rescue dogs. It's one of those things where you can't help but fall in love. They know you've rescued them.&nbsp;</p> <div class="widget left pull-quote-subtle w40 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="o4ej5OR3PKg" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/pull_quote_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="pull_quote_widget"> <p class="text primary"><span class="quotes open-quotes">&ldquo;</span>When I think about people who choose to go into the military, I tell you what, you are a lot more brave than I am.

They're out of Florida and they take rescue dogs, train them for a year, and then match them up with service members who have PTSD. You rescue a dog who then rescues a service member. I just love that...it hits two of my soft spots.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Z: Speaking of the military, your commitment to the troops has been very admirable. We particularly love the Salute the Troops segment. Why does the military hold such a special place in your heart and why have you gone out of your way to make it such a significant part of <em>Morning Express</em>?</strong></p> <p><strong>RM:</strong> A number of family&nbsp;members have gone into the military, whether it be uncles or cousins, and I just said to my mom this weekend: "When I think about people who choose to go into the military, I tell you what, you are a lot more brave than I am.&nbsp;I know right now that you are braver and you do things that I don't do or would be willing to do." Here are people who join knowing that, at times, they are going to be away from their families. The Salute the Troops segment, which we've done every morning, every hour, for a decade, is viewer-generated and it's the least we can do. It's that thank you for these people whose lives rotate around their duty. Just last week we had a salute from a service member who said something along the lines of "I'm sorry I can't be there, baby, congratulations on your graduation." That is a dad who couldn't be there for a high school graduation because he is deployed right now. When you think about the life events that they miss, oh my gosh, they are way more brave than I could ever be. I'm just grateful for it and the staff is, as well. The viewers have responded to it and there are no plans to take it out.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Z: As someone with a seemingly never-ending list of&nbsp;talents and interests, is there&nbsp;an activity that you've been dying to try?&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>RM:</strong> I think you must have sneaked into my house because my husband and I keep a big blackboard in the kitchen that says "fun things to do or achieve accomplish or learn" and there's an entire list. One of them... I haven't done it and it keeps popping up in my mind...is doing improv comedy music. That might be something fun to learn. Second City in Chicago offers adult immersive weekends where you can learn improvisation, but there's also one where you can learn improvisational music like the stuff from <em>Whose Line Is It Anyway?</em>. I just think that would be so much fun in a concert...where you ask people to take things out of their purse and write a song on the spot.&nbsp;</p> <p>Another thing on my to-do list is learning to swim.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Z: That sounds like a <em>Morning Express</em> segment in the making! Anything else?&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>RM:</strong> I wrote salsa lessons down. I'd also like to try target shooting, just to see if I can do it. &nbsp;</p> <div class="separator one"></div> Fri, 3 Jul 2015 10:40:19 -0700 http://www.zimbio.com/Robin+Meade/articles/E9bATtx0k5s/HLN+Robin+Meade+Cable+News+American+Girl E9bATtx0k5s 'Deadpool' is the Edgy, R-Rated Superhero Movie 'Far Away from the Shiny X-Men World' <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="igpN3frmAmd" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="igpN3frmAmd"><img src="http://www3.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/2k00T5oXyPgx.jpg" title="Deadpool" alt='&squot;Deadpool&squot; is the Edgy, R-Rated Superhero Movie "Far Away from the Shiny X-Men World"' /></div> <div class="below attribution">Joe Lederer/Entertainment Weekly</div> </div> </div> <p>It's the rags to riches superhero movie; a project that was initially dropped, only to be&nbsp;<a href="/Screen+News/articles/YLrBdlRSBzr/Deadpool+Movie+FINALLY+Gets+Greenlight">resurrected</a> after an illegal leak and subsequently shocking demand. <em>Deadpool</em> shouldn't be happening right now.

On July 3, 1985 an unheralded film made by the guy who did <em>Romancing the Stone</em> debuted to audience fervor and worldwide critical acclaim. <em>Back to the Future </em>would become the most popular movie of the year, defying studio heads who passed on it while making <a href="/Michael+J.+Fox+">Michael J. Fox </a>the biggest star in Hollywood. This was a watershed moment in movie history. Comic sci-fi was popularized&nbsp;and imitators have been trying to duplicate <em>BTTF's</em> magic ever since.</p> <p>Three decades later, <em>Back to the Future</em> is still in the public's collective conscious. Directors like Quentin Tarantino are often credited with bringing pop culture to film dialogue, but <em>Back to the Future</em> was <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHZctSnNrsw">referencing Darth Vader</a>&nbsp;and drinking Pepsi well before. Now, every movie has some kind of wink at the audience. Kids who grew up on the film are now directors making <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1862079/?ref_=nv_sr_1">their own versions</a>. <em>Back to the Future</em> was huge, <a href="http://www.boxofficemojo.com/yearly/chart/?yr=1985&amp;p=.htm">number one at the box office in 1985</a>, and its influence shows.</p> <p>To celebrate the film's 30th anniversary, I've recast it as if&nbsp;co-writers Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale hopped in the DeLorean and went&nbsp;30 years into the future. This isn't a remake. It's... a time travel hypothetical. Obviously, <em>Back to the Future</em> should never be remade. But if the writers had time traveled to 2015, this might've been the cast they chose.</p> <div class="separator one"></div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain left w90 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="81D4QvJtF7m" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="81D4QvJtF7m"><img src="http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/m0Qj3rkCpXsx.jpg" title="Back to the Future cast" alt="Recasting 'Back to the Future' 30 Years Later" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Universal</div> </div> </div> <p>Casting <em>Back to the Future</em> the first time was a process. <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wudNasQbv0">Eric Stoltz was originally tapped</a>&nbsp;to play Marty McFly because Michael J. Fox was busy making <em>Family Ties</em>. Stoltz's Marty was serious, more so than what director Robert Zemeckis envisioned, and the production team decided to replace him. Luckily, Fox's schedule opened and he was brought in as originally planned. With Fox in the lead, the film took off, and without him, it may never have been successful. So who might play him now? Who would play Doc Brown and the rest of the amazing 1985 lead cast?</p> <div class="separator one"></div> <h3 class="article_heading pine">Marty McFly</h3> <p>Original actor: <a href="/Michael+J.+Fox">Michael J. Fox</a><br />2015 recast: <a href="/Dave+Franco">Dave Franco</a></p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w80 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="DOQ9goaZbVn" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="DOQ9goaZbVn"><img src="http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/6uPSC0CPPTZx.jpg" title="Marty McFly recast" alt="Recasting 'Back to the Future' Now That It's The Future" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Universal | Getty Images</div> </div> </div> <p>We want someone who potentially has Fox's spirit. He has to be handsome, athletic, but also wide-eyed and romantic. Fox is great in <em>BTTF</em> because he captures Marty's exuberance as a teenager, but&nbsp;also his sense of wonder. Fox was 24-years-old in 1985, but looked much younger. Let's get rid of Zac Efron first, whom the studios would probably want. He's too country club&nbsp;and Marty McFly doesn't take his shirt off. I'm much more down with the normal guys: Anton Yelchin, Michael Cera, Miles Teller, Donald Glover, or someone like Paul Dano. These actors&nbsp;all have the capacity to be funny. Chris Pratt would be perfect if he was younger. Brits like Andrew Garfield, Max Irons, or Jack O'Connell are the right age, but this feels like an American role. After serious deliberation, my pick is <a href="/Dave+Franco">Dave Franco</a>, the other Franco. He's got the right look, energy, and comic sense to do the character justice. Franco is overdue to break out. He stole scenes from Jonah Hill in <em>21 Jump Street</em> and from Efron in <em>Neighbors</em>. But more than his likability and sense of humor, the 30-year-old still looks very young, and he has the clean-cut, hair parted&nbsp;style that you want in an everyman like&nbsp;Marty McFly.&nbsp;</p> <div class="separator one"></div> <h3 class="article_heading pine">Doc Brown</h3> <p>Original actor: <a href="/Christopher+Lloyd">Christopher Lloyd</a><br />2015 recast:&nbsp;<a href="/Bill+Murray">Bill Murray</a></p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain left w80 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="l_ml-UA-62F" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="l_ml-UA-62F"><img src="http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/Jgr8pfoKw-2x.jpg" title="Doc Brown recast" alt="Recasting 'Back to the Future' Now That It's The Future" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Universal | Getty Images</div> </div> </div> <p>Replacing Christopher Lloyd is a daunting task. This is harder than recasting Marty. Lloyd invented Doc Brown, instilling the personality traits of <a href="https://www.google.com/search?q=albert+einstein&amp;espv=2&amp;biw=1920&amp;bih=955&amp;site=webhp&amp;source=lnms&amp;tbm=isch&amp;sa=X&amp;ei=Fz6WVZSdFtSmyATcxbbICw&amp;sqi=2&amp;ved=0CAYQ_AUoAQ">Albert Einstein</a>&nbsp;and conductor <a href="https://www.google.com/search?q=Leopold+Stokowski&amp;espv=2&amp;biw=1920&amp;bih=955&amp;source=lnms&amp;tbm=isch&amp;sa=X&amp;ei=LT6WVffYBIi7yQSr-KGgBA&amp;ved=0CAgQ_AUoAw">Leopold Stokowski</a>, and he improvised some irreplaceable scenes. But Lloyd wasn't the filmmakers' first choice. That was <a href="/John+Lithgow">John Lithgow</a>, who would be a great pick&nbsp;now. But: too old probably.&nbsp;Ditto Donald Sutherland, Ian McKellan, Morgan Freeman, Brian Cox, and Al Pacino, although younger versions of those guys would have nailed it. I love Liam Neeson, who did the mad scientist thing in <em>Darkman</em>. But one guy is too good not to choose: <a href="/Bill+Murray">Bill Murray</a>. The 64-year-old comedian would add a few years to Doc in the 1955 scenes, but the comedic payoff would outweigh any tiny difference. This is a guy who would bring Doc's kinetic energy, his smarts, and his warmth.

Whomever replaces her as Lorraine must carry that innocence while remaining sexy and grounded in real life. Jennifer Lawrence comes to mind right away. But I think she would be too unattainable. Emma Watson, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Carey Mulligan, and Emmy Rossum are all good choices. If only Amy Adams were 15 years younger, she would be perfect (See: <em>Junebug, Catch Me If You Can</em>). But wait, there's one actress who hits all the notes: <a href="/Anna+Kendrick">Anna Kendrick</a>. The 29-year-old still looks like she's 17 so pulling off a high schooler shouldn't be a problem. She's got the dream girl thing going on and she can play lusty, funny, and spunky in her sleep.</p> <div class="separator one"></div> <h3 class="article_heading pine">George McFly</h3> <p>Original actor: <a href="/Crispin+Glover">Crispin Glover</a><br />2015 recast: <a href="/Paul+Dano">Paul Dano</a></p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain left w80 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="PzkuMRDASLS" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="PzkuMRDASLS"><img src="http://www4.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/-5LYEk1ng6Gx.jpg" title="George McFly recast" alt="Recasting 'Back to the Future' Now That It's The Future" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Universal | Getty Images</div> </div> </div> <p><a href="/Crispin+Glover">Crispin Glover</a> caused problems during the making of <em>BTTF</em> with curious ideas&nbsp;on the character of George McFly and he had to be reeled in by director Robert Zemeckis and crew. But his performance is great, weird, and funny. Glover's George McFly is a nervous ball of energy, scared of life, and especially, of girls. His one shining moment&mdash;when he cold cocks Biff&mdash;is a brief glimpse at a heroic side. So who could play sensitive and stay believable when he must be tough? I love what Adam Sandler does in <em>Punch-Drunk Love</em>, but he's too old obviously. I like <em>Silicon Valley's</em> <a href="/Thomas+Middleditch">Thomas Middleditch</a>, but I'm not sure he can be dashing. Let's go with&nbsp;<a href="/Paul+Dano">Paul Dano</a>, a <a href="/Beyond+the+Box+Office/articles/MDIVWRfugwM/Paul+Dano+Best+Actor+Generation">favorite of mine</a>&nbsp;and one of the most versatile young actors today.&nbsp;He can do weird, nervous, funny, serious, sweet, and confident. Zemeckis would be able to shape the character however he pleased.</p> <div class="separator one"></div> <h3 class="article_heading pine">Biff Tannen</h3> <p>Original actor:&nbsp;<a href="/Thomas+F.+Wilson">Thomas F.

Wilson was so great as Biff (named "Tannen" after a Universal executive that bullied Zemeckis once) it's hard to imagine anyone else in the role. But there are plenty of choices: Charlie Hunnam, Channing Tatum, Scott Porter, Stephen Amell, Armie Hammer, and Alex Pettyfer all have the right face for the job, but are any truly intimidating? Sure, those guys could handle the roles easily. Hunnam shows his spikes on <em>Sons of Anarchy</em>, but he's probably too&nbsp;mature-looking to pull off a high schooler. Same for Tatum, or guys like Ryan Gosling or Chris Evans. Plus they're hugely&nbsp;famous and wrong for a supporting role. I'm thinking Kellan Lutz, who has a face you just want to punch. Biff is a one-dimensional, tailor-made character for the 30-year-old actor. He's a bully straight out of&nbsp;central casting.</p> <p></p> <p><em><strong>Now let us pray none of this ever comes to pass...</strong></em></p> <div class="separator one"></div> <div class="widget left html-widget w90 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="OqbBFAx3g6M" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/html_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="html_widget"><iframe width="900" height="506" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/qvsgGtivCgs" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></div> Fri, 3 Jul 2015 01:48:23 -0700 http://www.zimbio.com/Michael+J.+Fox/articles/DPMRV7tDO0T/Recasting+Back+Future+Now+Future DPMRV7tDO0T Watch this Insane 6-Minute Mashup of 75 Years of Disney Songs <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="xH4V121A-c1" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="xH4V121A-c1"><img src="http://www3.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/xaUUFcU1Mzvx.jpg" title="Todrick Hall" alt="Watch this Insane 6-Minute Mashup of 75 Years of Disney Songs" /></div> <div class="below attribution">YouTube</div> </div> </div> <p>Over the span of the next six minutes, you'll be deeply questioning the moderate Disney knowledge you <em>thought</em> you had on lock.

in&nbsp;<em>Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice</em>, and today we got&nbsp;some great new shots via&nbsp;<a href="http://www.ew.com/gallery/batman-v-superman-dawn-justice-first-look-photos"><em>Entertainment Weekly</em>'s cover story</a>. With gray at his temples, <a href="/Ben+Affleck">Ben Affleck</a> is rockin' a silver fox look as billionaire Bruce Wayne , and he definitely has his Batman brood down when he's facing off against Superman in one of the images. There's also a new pic of him chatting with Diana, aka Wonder Woman at a party.</p> <p>The craziest picture of the bunch is definitely Jesse Eisenberg, sporting a head of long luscious locks as Lex Luther, but according to&nbsp;<em>EW</em>, he will definitely be bald by the end of the movie. Check out the pics for yourself and see what you think.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60" data-widget-guid="zyHQ6i0SK3P" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="zyHQ6i0SK3P"><img src="http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/_nlzyHxzuTVx.jpg" title="_nlzyHxzuTVx" alt="None" /></div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60" data-widget-guid="kA5LsUh2ZuS" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="kA5LsUh2ZuS"><img src="http://www4.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/fbHKOaJ_M1Dx.jpg" title="fbHKOaJ_M1Dx" alt="None" /></div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60" data-widget-guid="ki55JYDMpYr" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="ki55JYDMpYr"><img src="http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/-pKm0xXOzLAx.jpg" title="-pKm0xXOzLAx" alt="None" /></div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60" data-widget-guid="6UXNYb4Zl_P" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="6UXNYb4Zl_P"><img src="http://www4.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/pqNg8TornIDx.jpg" title="pqNg8TornIDx" alt="None" /></div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60" data-widget-guid="klKDVnlXrBf" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="klKDVnlXrBf"><img src="http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/Uly5rEAzdv0x.jpg" title="Uly5rEAzdv0x" alt="None" /></div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60" data-widget-guid="cB2wIQnkR_L" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="cB2wIQnkR_L"><img src="http://www3.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/5GHaP1PM5_Fx.jpg" title="5GHaP1PM5_Fx" alt="None" /></div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60 no-top-padding" data-widget-guid="TF_G5iXya_2" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="TF_G5iXya_2"><img src="http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/EQjsm_lp9Crx.jpg" title="Cover" alt="Everyone's Brooding in the New 'Batman v Superman' Photos" /></div> <div class="below attribution">EW.com</div> </div> </div> <p></p> Thu, 2 Jul 2015 14:01:18 -0700 http://www.zimbio.com/Ben+Affleck/articles/HG7XP_vxIDm/Everyone+Brooding+New+Batman+v+Superman+Photos HG7XP_vxIDm Quasimodo, the World's Ugliest Dog Got a Bizarre Late Night Makeover <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60 no-top-padding" data-widget-guid="yzW_0G-6mve" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="yzW_0G-6mve"><img src="/mp/LBlfMqnW2PJl.jpg" title="World's Ugliest Dog 2015" alt="Quasimodo, the World's Ugliest Dog Got a Bizarre Late Night Makeover" /></div> <div class="below attribution">YouTube</div> </div> </div> <p>In line with tradition, the World's Ugliest Dog was crowned last week in Petaluma, Calif.

It's like all the worst parts of the Oregon Trail game, combined with the worst parts of the Roman Empire, mixed with torture, and topped with zombies. Needless to say, that kind of environment can really age a person.</p> <p>A year in <em>Game of Thrones</em> is like five in human years, and you can see it in the characters faces (at least those who haven't been beheaded, stabbed in the baby, killed by vagina smoke, or slaughtered on the battlefield).
