(Universal | Carolco)</div> </div> </div> <p>We'd like to send our condolences to the family, friends, and loved ones of "Rowdy"&nbsp;<a href="/Roddy+Piper">Roddy Piper</a>, who passed away at age 61 in his home from cardiac arrest early this&nbsp;morning. Piper, whose real name was&nbsp;Roderick George Toombs, was arguably the greatest pro wrestling bad guy of all time. He ruled the '80s opposite heroes like Hulk Hogan, and made a living off being as loud, arrogant, and obnoxious as possible. He was a spectacular showman and he will be missed.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain right w30 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="N80xcyXGvLX" 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="N80xcyXGvLX"><a href="/pictures/KHuQ8Z89WRZ/Celebrities+Arriving+WWE+SummerSlam+Kickoff/XkQ2dUEAkjr"> <img src="http://www4.pictures.zimbio.com/fp/Celebrities+Arriving+WWE+SummerSlam+Kickoff+XkQ2dUEAkjrx.jpg" title="Celebrities Arriving At The WWE's SummerSlam Kickoff Party In Hollywood" alt="Piper in 2009. (Flynet Pictures)" /> </a></div> <div class="below">Piper in 2009. (Flynet Pictures)</div> </div> </div> <p>Thankfully, Piper left a legacy that reaches far outside the world of wresting. He will always be known as a WWF legend, but he's also a legend in the world of sci-fi action. Popularized in the '80s thanks to movies like <em>Blade Runner</em> and <em>RoboCop</em>, the genre was popcorn magic for the film industry at the time and has only grown larger. Piper, who starred in<a href="/+John+Carpenter"> John Carpenter</a>'s 1988 mind-bender, <em>They Live</em>, is a big part of that legacy.</p> <p>When wresting took off in the '80s thanks to stars like Hogan and Piper, the crossover appeal was rampant. Hogan appeared as the fictional wrestler "Thunderlips" in <em>Rocky III</em> in 1982 and was given his own starring roles in <em>No Holds Barred</em> (1989) and <em>Suburban Commando</em> (1991). But those films&nbsp;won't be remembered by many. Piper, on the other hand, truly made his mark with&nbsp;<em>They Live</em>, the cult classic from Carpenter, one&nbsp;of the film industry's most daring and inventive directors.&nbsp;</p> <p>"Unlike most Hollywood actors, Roddy has life written all over him." Carpenter explained casting Piper was an easy choice at the time. And the result speaks for itself. <em>They Live</em> is a frantic film of vicious satire and ungodly action. Roddy plays Nada, a drifter who discovers a box of sunglasses and finds they show the truth of the world around him. When he puts them on, he can see that the people in charge are actually aliens and subliminal messages secretly rule&nbsp;the world. The message is a kick to the gut, and the movie boasts one of the great fight scenes in film history, between Piper and co-star <a href="/Keith+David">Keith David</a>. It lasts five full minutes.</p> <p><em>They Live</em> is a must-see for sci-fi and action fans, and Piper is a huge&nbsp;reason why. Let's remember Roddy Piper&nbsp;through his most memorable piece of work.&nbsp;</p> <div class="separator one"></div> <p>Here's the film in its entirety:</p> <div class="widget html-widget w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="yXTcTHn_4Qo" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/html_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="html_widget"><iframe width="600" height="338" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/BMym1-uf5eI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></div> <p>Trailer:</p> <div class="widget html-widget w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="t4PianhlRom" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/html_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="html_widget"><iframe width="600" height="338" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/iJC4R1uXDaE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></div> <p>The Sunglasses:</p> <div class="widget html-widget w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="4SfZO16moqs" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/html_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="html_widget"><iframe width="600" height="338" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/JI8AMRbqY6w" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></div> <p>Poster:</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="RpJmzKPHPGA" 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="RpJmzKPHPGA"><img src="http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/TyY2_9iQ25qx.jpg" title="They Live poster" alt="Roddy Piper Dies at 61, But 'They Live' Lives On" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Universal | Carolco</div> </div> </div> <p></p> Fri, 31 Jul 2015 18:14:04 -0700 http://www.zimbio.com/Celebrity+News/articles/FwDrA0M0WU_/Roddy+Piper+Dies+61+But+Live+Lives FwDrA0M0WU_ How to Party Like Your Favorite Drunk Disney Characters <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="r9vkbIRZTIa" 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="r9vkbIRZTIa"><img src="http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/pdpydMHfuJ6x.jpg" title="Sleeping Beauty Drunk" alt="How to Party Like Your Favorite Drunk Disney Characters" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Disney</div> </div> </div> <p>Think Disney is only about wholesome, family fun?

Take a look back at some of those roles and see where they land on our Tom Cruise Movie Matrix.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w100 no-top-padding" data-widget-guid="uGTJwktX50B" 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="uGTJwktX50B"><img src="http://www3.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/A3ZhSsuIQ7_x.jpg" title="Tom Cruise Matrix" alt="The Tom Cruise Movie Matrix" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Rafael Hidalgo / Zimbio</div> </div> </div> <p></p> Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:58:05 -0700 http://www.zimbio.com/Beyond+the+Box+Office/articles/4QJzF_srQ2-/The+Tom+Cruise+Movie+Matrix 4QJzF_srQ2- Here's What Happens When Chris Pratt Lets Fans Design His Facebook <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="br5fcTlpzWc" 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="br5fcTlpzWc"><img src="http://www3.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/zwHNKfAGOHFx.jpg" title="Chris Pratt Facebook" alt="Here's What Happens When Chris Pratt Lets Fans Design His Facebook" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Facebook via Jake Chetwood</div> </div> </div> <p>It all started&nbsp;with a very simple <a href="https://www.facebook.com/PrattPrattPratt/posts/1020053928026436">request</a>&nbsp;from <a href="/Chris+Pratt">Chris Pratt</a>:&nbsp;</p> <p>"Hello friends and fans.

But maybe something could happen in <em>The End of the Tour</em>? Anything? The first film to portray author <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Foster_Wallace">David Foster Wallace</a>&nbsp;comes a bit too soon if you ask me because: What's the point? Wallace, who treasured being a normal guy and loathed celebrity, is no great film character. <a href="/Jason+Segel">Jason Segel</a>, who plays Wallace, tries to make him one&nbsp;by not relaxing for one second of the production. But the&nbsp;words don't lie.</p> <p>Back in 1996, <em>Rolling Stone</em> reporter and author David Lipsky interviewed and lived with Wallace for five days. The interview never ran. Wallace took his own life in 2008. Lipsky went back to the tapes when he heard, and by 2010, he had a book called&nbsp;<em>Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip with David Foster Wallace</em>. Seems like Wallace's death made that shelved interview a bit more interesting.</p> <p>The thing is, it's not. It's no verbal sparring session. It's just a garden-variety interview. Lipsky's book is largely transcribed from the interview tapes. Tapes from the third wheel on their road trip&mdash;Lipsky's recorder, a device no interviewee is thrilled about seeing. In the movie,&nbsp;<a href="/Jesse+Eisenberg">Jesse Eisenberg</a>, who plays Lipsky, is never seen without it. These tapes are so ordinary, it makes sense why the <em>Rolling Stone</em> piece never ran. Wallace's death changed everything. Suddenly, every interview he ever gave became important.&nbsp;And that's why this movie was made. It's doubtful Wallace would've approved.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w90 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="jIzW4SnYEfn" 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="jIzW4SnYEfn"><img src="http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/apMGQe23gtDx.jpg" title="The End of the Tour" alt="'The End of the Tour' &amp; The Normal Genius of David Foster Wallace" /></div> <div class="below attribution">A24</div> </div> </div> <p><em>The End of the Tour</em> begins with Lipsky hearing the news of Wallace's death. In his apartment, he&nbsp;digs out the old interview. Flashback takes us there. It's 1996, <em>Jest</em> has just been released and Lipsky is skeptical of its enormous praise. But then he reads it. Soon after, he's pitching an interview with Wallace to his editor (<a href="/Ron+Livingston">Ron Livingston</a>). Offscreen, Wallace agrees to talk. Lipsky will stay with the author&nbsp;at his home in Bloomington, IL (Wallace taught at Illinois State for years) and then travel with him to Minnesota to finish the book&nbsp;tour.&nbsp;</p> <p>It's here we get our first glimpse of David Foster Wallace onscreen. It might as well be Jesus. Segel has a few moments, a few impressive long takes, but his performance is a carefully calculated exercise in worship. There's no real person there. This is an actor with a great reverence for his character and he's too careful with the performance. Segel carries Wallace's suicide with him the entire film, like he's petrified of it.&nbsp;</p> <p>And how could he not be? It's too soon for this. I got the same uneasy feeling watching <em>Amy</em> earlier this Summer. Inherently, Wallace's suicide hangs like a cloud over the film. Anyone who knows his work will be looking for the signs. Why did he do it? But <em>The End of the Tour</em> offers no answers. There aren't any. Lipsky does broach the topic of Wallace's depression (the writer&nbsp;attempted suicide in his 20s and was admitted to Harvard's McLean hospital in 1989) but there's nothing here&nbsp;that can't be found in D.T. Max's biography.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w90 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="8iCtOoH7EpL" 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="8iCtOoH7EpL"><img src="http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/nUm3BKDxoUPx.jpg" title="The End of the Tour" alt="'The End of the Tour' &amp; The Normal Genius of David Foster Wallace" /></div> <div class="below attribution">A24</div> </div> </div> <p>"You don&rsquo;t crack open a thousand-page book because you heard the author is a regular guy. You do it because he&rsquo;s brilliant.&rdquo; This sentiment by Lipsky is the film's shining moment. Whether Wallace wants to be or not, he was special. And the presence of a <em>Rolling Stone</em> reporter proves it. What I can't get past is how little Lipsky gets out of Wallace. The film is conversation after conversation, at Wallace's house, in his car, at a diner... and nothing intellectual is gleaned. Lipsky tells his editor he doesn't want to write about boy bands, but one of his first conversations with Wallace is about his<a href="/+Alanis+Morissette"> Alanis Morissette</a> poster.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="/James+Ponsoldt">James Ponsoldt</a>, the director behind <em>The Spectacular Now</em>, works off an unspectacular script by playwright <a href="/Donald+Margulies">Donald Margulies</a>. Ponsoldt has a talent for capturing intimacy and it's admirable he's interested more in the everyday trappings of life than car chases. But he's made a film that feels like an empty chasm. There's little intimacy between anyone and a reporter, and even less so between a hyper-sensitive artist like Wallace and a reporter. His&nbsp;guard is up the whole time. He even gets angry with Lipsky for flirting with his ex-girlfriend. Wow, even Wallace gets jealous. He really is just a normal dude. Give me a break.</p> <p>Segel, as I mentioned, never really gets it. His performance is likable because he is, but you can feel him repeating the word "tortured genius" again and again in his brain. Eisenberg is better as Lipsky, his unflinching stare offering glimpses of envy at every turn (although he has no idea how to smoke a cigarette). When he hits on the&nbsp;ex-girlfriend, he makes it seem premeditated, like he wants to stick it to Wallace for being the genius he can't be.&nbsp;We need more moments like that. I really don't care that Wallace loved dogs and <em>Die Hard</em>. Everyone likes <em>Die Hard</em>.&nbsp;</p> <div class="separator one"></div> <div class="widget html-widget w90 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="B82M0xLdG7f" 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/fqUa5sYHC9s" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w90 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="dgNzoMSroFD" 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="dgNzoMSroFD"><img src="http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/mHZVeW_Maudx.jpg" title="The End of the Tour poster" alt="'The End of the Tour' &amp; The Normal Genius of David Foster Wallace" /></div> <div class="below attribution">A24</div> </div> </div> Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:50:25 -0700 http://www.zimbio.com/Jason+Segel/articles/9tOnT_ipzhp/End+Tour+Normal+Genius+David+Foster+Wallace 9tOnT_ipzhp A Zuckerbabe is Coming!
