Amanda Peet to Join ‘Gulliver’s Travels’

Amanda Peet has joined the cast of the adventure movie “Gulliver’s Travels” opposite Jack Black.

The 20th Century Fox film, derived from Jonathan Swift’s classic story, also stars Jason Segel and Emily Blunt.

The modern retelling follows travel writer Lemuel Gulliver, who heads to an assignment in the Bermuda Triangle only to end up on the secret island of Lilliput, home to a population of industrious tiny people. Peet will play Black’s editor and potential romantic interest. [Read more…]

Emily Blunt: ‘You Can Get Away With a Lot With This Accent!’

Though she’s played some forbidding characters on-screen (including her breakout role in The Devil Wears Prada), it’s easy to fall for Emily Blunt. For me, affection came instantly over lunch at the Chateau Marmont as Blunt picked up a menu and cried out, “Arugula and bacon-wrapped dates! Have you had them?”“Yes,” I said. “Bacon-wrapped anything is—”

“Awesome. I know.”

A woman after my own heart. And Blunt’s clever summation of the actor-ridden Chateau—“It’s a bit like a drama school party, isn’t it?”—didn’t hurt either. Read more?

Blunt wants ‘Dancing With The Stars’ spot

Emily Blunt has reportedly pleaded with television producers to let her be on Dancing With The Stars.

The actress is said to be obsessed with the show and has always wanted to be a part of the celebrity cast, according to WENN.

The 26-year-old is also a big fan of the show’s UK counterpart Strictly Come Dancing.

“Strictly Come Dancing is an obsession for my entire family. I don’t watch much TV but I like that show,” she said. “You will see me on Strictly or the US version, Dancing With The Stars.”

Blunt added that she would absolutely participate on either programme if offered the chance to compete.

For actress Emily Blunt, balance matters

Sounding as if she’s quoting a chapter from the gospel of Ari, the super-agent on HBO’s Entourage, Emily Blunt offers her approach to building an acting career.

“You have to mix it up,” Blunt says. “Do one for them, one for me.”

Though she has two new movies in theaters – the recently released Sunshine Cleaning and The Great Buck Howard – it’s hard to say which is for her and which is for “them,” since both are quirky little movies. They each have their stars: Amy Adams, fresh from her Oscar-nominated performance in Doubt, stars in Sunshine Cleaning, and Buck Howard features John Malkovich as the titular entertainer. But neither movie is the sort of boffo box-office studio project that Ari would endorse. [Read more…]

Review: Sunshine Cleaning

Amy Adams and Emily Blunt play two sisters who stumble into the crime scene cleanup business, with disastrous results. Aiming to be a smart, quirky comedy with a hard edge, the film lacks the emotional sophistication it needed to reach the finish line, but it does offer a few good moments thanks to performance value. Alan Arkin and Steve Zahn co-star.

Starring: Amy Adams, Emily Blunt, Alan Arkin and Steve Zahn.

Rating: Two stars out of five

Contrived quirkiness can be as awkward and cringe-inducing as bad acting. It’s like watching a swimmer tread water with one arm or a figure skater land a triple toe-loop fanny first: Everything starts to look harder than it really should be. [Read more…]
