May 07 2015


May came in with a bang.Our best guess is that you couldn't keep up this first week because we barely did!To insure that you read everything - a requirement by law - here are things you might have missed in this very busy week:The podcast returnedand we learned that Anne Marie has feelings for Michelle Rodriguez's biceps and Joe Reid really loves watching superheroes fight together;The first wave of Oscar predictions finally wrapped withSupporting ActressandLead Actress discussions;Orson Welles turned 100 years old and,aside from the Best Shot Mid-Season Finale,Alexa (of 'Curio' fame) got a collage piece accepted fora centennial show in Illinoiswhich you should check out if you live there!;Mysterious Skinturned 10;Nathaniel attended theMarvel Marathonandreviewed The Age of Ultronand also gawked atPenny Dreadful's NSFWpremiere episode;Posed with Yoda,Manuel did, for a Star Wars Day photoset while Jason asked you tochoose between the Dark Side andthe uh...Skywalker side;Mad Mencontinued knocking it out of the park inits final episodes;David Lynchsold coffee;and The Lovely Laura Linneysold her soulto thedevilTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.


Oh and we had a very special guest blogger...

Longtime TFE readers surely had already clocked that we enjoyDavid Dastmalchian's work and have been waiting for him to bust out so that people can learn his name.Over the years he earned two nominations in our annual awards ceremony (both in the limited or cameo category) forThe Dark Knight(2008) andPrisoners(2013).We assume he won't be haunting that category much longer as his career expands.He was kind enough to say yes when we asked him to guest blog for what should surely be his breakout summer given that the film he wrote and headlinesAnimals,riding critical darling status out of SXSW,opens on May 15thand two months later he gets to play with Paul Rudd inAnt-Man,joining the Marvel Universe.That's an interesting move,given that he first gained notice for a DC movie,The Dark Knight.ET Online recently asked him about the switcheroo.(Click on that photo if you'd like to see that red carpet moment.It's not embedded here because it's an automatic play):

Here's what he wrote for you:
David What?- His origin story & how to pronounce his name
What I Learned From Paul Rudd- On comic improv with Paul Rudd,Melissa Leo staying in character,and an idol of his Malcolm McDowell
What I Saw / Where I Saw It- four of his formative films growing up
The Making of Animalsthings looked bleak until magically it came together
Soundtrack of My Life- Have you ever imagined your life in movie trailer form?
...You should follow him onTwitter&Instagram!

We sincerely hope the experience was more pleasant for him that that time he met Jake Gyllenhaal...

Are you enjoying May thus far?
