Angelina Jolie sat down with Tom Brokaw describing the daunting task of directing "Unbroken," the story of Olympian and WWII prisoner of war Louis Zamperini.
The script of "Unbroken" is based on Laura Hillenbrand's best-selling book of the same title. Jolie was joined by Zamperini, nicknamed "Zamp," during the interview where she admitted that the 97-year-old helped and guided her own life, both personally and professionally.
Amanda Seyfried's "Ted 2" role may have pushed Mila Kunis a bit further out of the picture in the sequel. The 28-year-old actress was cast by Seth McFarlane to have a lead role in the comedy, whose predecessor grossed $218 million domestically and $549 million worldwide.
Amanda Seyfried was cast in "Ted 2" as the female lead alongside Mark Wahlberg, who plays John Bennett, and Ted, who is voiced by Seth McFarlane. The reasoning behind MacFarlane's casting choices haven't yet been revealed, but the move could mean Kunis' role is significantly smaller, even though her character Lori married John at the end of the first film.
"It looks like Mila Kunis will only appear in a tiny role, if at all, in the sequel," Deadline reported. "I'm told this has nothing to do with anything other than a creative decision that MacFarlane decided to take with the plotting of the sequel." more >>

NASHVILLE – A top Hollywood studio executive has called on Christians to focus on producing real, well-written, true-to-life stories to really capture the attention of the entertainment industry.
"I absolutely believe that a lot of times, when it comes to faith-based content, we portray sometimes the ideal of what we believe," DeVon Franklin, senior vice president of Production for Columbia Tristar Pictures, a division of Sony Pictures Entertainment, said during a panel on Christian engagement with the media, at the National Religious Broadcasters' International Christian Media Convention on Monday.
"We all have gone through tragedy, we all have gone through trauma, some of us are in pain right now – because life is not where we want it to be. Some of us are depressed, some of us are angry, some of us are frustrated, some of us have lost some loved ones, we all have gone through massive things that have happened to us." more >>
Actor Alec Baldwin recently announced that he is retiring from his "public life" as a celebrity, as he blasted the media for "wrongly" painting him as a "homophobe."
In an extensive article published Monday by New York Magazine, titled "I Give Up," Baldwin says the New York City-centered, tabloid-oriented media culture has forced him to give up his role in the public eye and leave the city. He is considering a possible move to Los Angeles, where he feels he can get privacy for himself and his family, including his wife Hilaria and their six-month old child, Carmen.
"I probably have to move out of New York," Baldwin said. "I just can't live in New York anymore." The Emmy-award winning actor went on to say that his personality hasn't changed, but rather the highly-technical landscape of the media world has caused him to be forever haunted by past comments. more >>
