When Foxcatcher arrives in theaters this weekend — the dark, true-life drama about the murder of Olympic wrestling champion Dave Schultz (played by Mark Ruffalo) — it may leave you with a looming question, “Wait, is that really Channing Tatum?” No, not just because Tatum — like his co-star Steve Carell (who plays eccentric millionaire and Schultz’s murderer, John du Pont) — is virtually unrecognizable due to the film’s stunning physical transformations. It’s because Tatum, as the tortured Olympic wrestler (and Dave’s brother) Mark Schultz, reaches staggering new heights as an actor.
Channing Tatum dances. He acts. He strips. And now, he’s rapping straight into our hearts.
In Hollywood, there’s always a battle for attention. The legends and icons are forced to fend off the pretty young things that pop up every year. But sometimes, a generation of starlets and studs are more than just pretty faces — they are the new Hollywood. They transform into talented, award-winning actors who take over both the big and small screen. They include the likes of Jonah Hill, Carey Mulligan, Emma Watson and Shailene Woodley, all of who have been featured in Vanity Fair’s Young Hollywood series.
While there have been a number of hits featured in the magazine of the years, there have also been a number of misses — Vinessa Shaw and Sarah Wynter anyone? Like them, we want to know where they are all now.
Starting with 1999 — the unofficial “Young Hollywood” issue — we look back on the hottest, youngest, brightest, freshest faces of the past 15 years.
What are the key ingredients for a long and fruitful bromance? Strength, compassion and humor all come to mind, and each are visible in the on screen relationship between Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. The 22 Jump Street stars captivated us with their unlikely bond, and they’re banking on the hope that you’ll want to see them go undercover and bust drug dealers once again. They work well together and enjoy each other’s company off the clock. But Jonah has had plenty of successful professional pairings result in long-term friendships (see: Michael Cera and Leonardo DiCaprio). So who holds the key to his heart?
OITNB‘s Laura Prepon gets a special gift, Channing Tatum talks about the struggles of his penis, and you’ll never guess the iconic childhood TV show that’s getting a reboot.
What’s the most unusual place Guy Fieri has prepared food? Jonah Hill faces up to a mistake, and Amy Poehler introduces us to a new side of Jon Hamm.
What did Hugh Jackman defeat in real life? Which visionary artist passed away? What’s up with Wonder Woman?
Jonah Hill returned to Studio 8H last night (with musical guest Bastille) to host Saturday Night Live for the third time. Last time, jokes were made at his expense in regards to how his Oscar nomination had changed him. This time, his Wolf of Wall Street co-star Leonardo DiCaprio stepped in during his monologue to put Hill in line and to recreate DiCaprio’s most famous cinematic moment.
There’s nothing like a good holiday film to spread Christmas cheer. Of course, there’s family favorites that run the gamut from Elf to It’s a Wonderful Life to, um, Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf Of Wall Street? If visions of sugarplums are what you have in mind, maybe stick to the fruitcake, but if a sex scene involving Leonardo DiCaprio, a dominatrix and a candle peaks your interest, well then, you’re in for a treat! We asked the cast of this darkly funny, deeply depraved movie why they think this Christmas should be thrown to the wolves.
Money! Power! Beauty! Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf Of Wall Street, which opens on Christmas Day, has all three of these in spades. However, we were curious as to which one of these traits were most important to the film’s cast, stars like Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey. So at the film’s premiere in Manhattan this week, we forced each one of these gents to make their own Sophie’s Choice and only pick only one.
