For anyone overtaken by Johnny Depp's recent filmography, the trailer for 'Black Mass' can serve as a great reminder that he is a phenomenal actor.
With the recent trailer release for 'Black Mass', it's clear to see why the world fell in love with Johnny Depp. A short clip within the trailer perfectly demonstrates the veteran actor's ability to switch at will between fun-loving and friendly, to nightmarishly monstrous, in a great acting showcase. And that creepy make-up job certainly helps.
Johnny Depp shows off his more villainous side in 'Black Mass'
In recent years, Johnny Depp has received a critical savaging, specifically for films like 'The Lone Ranger' and 'Transcendence', but this triumphant return to form may be just what he needs before launching into an 'Alice in Wonderland' sequel, and a fifth 'Pirates of the Caribbean' film.
Sometimes, the greatest hiding place is in plain sight. For twelve years from the mid-1990s, he was the FBI's second most wanted fugitive, behind Osama Bin Laden. Throughout the 1970s, he was an FBI informant, revealing information to bring down an Italian American crime family, and he was the brother of a US senator. But really, his informant years were to stop another family from invading his own turf. Whitey Bulger (Johnny Depp) was one of the most brutal and violent criminals in Boston, being the secret puppet master behind one of the most dangerous crime families in history.

The 'Black Mass' trailer has been released and Johnny Depp is absolutely terrifying as criminal, Whitey Bulger.
Johnny Depp is almost unrecognisable in the trailer for Black Mass. The 51-year actor plays the notorious American gangster, Whitey Bulger, in the upcoming film. The first official trailer was released on Thursday (23rd April). It shows Depp, with a receding hairline and incredibly piercing blue eyes, intimidating a colleague over dinner. Depp's intimidating voice becomes a voice over as other scenes from the movie, including Depp wielding a gun and dumping a dead body, cut in.

The American Egg Board is serving up a side of Bacon with its eggs to help promote a healthy breakfast.
“There’s no better start to the day then eggs for breakfast,” that’s the message the American Egg Board is trying to send us, with its genius new campaign starring actor Kevin Bacon. As the star himself points out, the only thing that could make those eggs better is a side of bacon, though we’re not expecting to find the actor resting on our kitchen counter any time soon.
Happy 30th Birthday to The Sundance Film Festival! A whole host of stars and celebrities flocked to have their pictures taken at Sundance.
The Sundance Film Festival is currently in full swing, having begun on 22nd January, and wrapping up on 1st February. This year, something particularly special is in the air at Salt Lake City, as the festival is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. That's right, the Sundance Film Festival has been running for 30 years! Starting out back in 1985, Sundance screened 86 films with the help of 13 staff members. Last year, the festival showcased 186 films of 12,218 that were submitted. That sort of growth has helped Sundance become one of the biggest independent film festivals in, not only North America, by the world.

This year, 54 first-time filmmakers are having their films premiered at the festival, but there are plenty of well-known faces there, as well, as 200 films are being shown this year for the monumental anniversary. For the 12th year running, The Village at the Lift has been set up in Park City with a café, restaurant, nightclub and photo studio. And this photo studio has seen a host of celebrities for the festival flocking in to pose for pictures in promotion for their various films, taken by Larry Busacca.
On the eve of the release of 'Jersey Boys', we look at Eastwood's ten biggest successes as a director.
Having first installed himself within American culture with his recurring role as Rowdy Yates in the cowboy seriesRawhide, San Francisco native Clint Eastwood would become renowned across the world for his roles in a succession of violent and iconic Westerns. The ‘Man With No Name’ character, first seen in the hallowed ‘Spaghetti Western’ trilogy, saw Eastwood become internationally known as a steely actor who went down a storm with domestic and global audiences.

The 55 year-old actor relived his youth by performing some dance moves from the 1980's classic 'Footloose,' to celebrate its 30th anniversary.
It has been 30 years since Kevin Bacon starred in the dancing flick 'Footloose,' but it seems time hasn't slowed him down at all.
The 55 year-old showed that he hasn't lost a step when it comes to dancing as he re-enacted some of the moves from the 1984 classic when appearing on the 'Tonight Show.'
On Friday's episode of the late-night talk show, host Jimmy Fallon declared "that dancing has been outlawed here at The Tonight Show."
Kevin Bacon may have appeared in 'Footloose' 30 years ago but he still knows all the moves and showed them off whilst appearing on 'The Tonight Show' on Friday (21st March).
It's been 30 years since 25-year-old Kevin Bacon sporting a white vest and high waisted jeans danced his way across screens throughout the US. Yet Bacon still knows the moves and showed Jimmy Fallon that dancing is never banned whilst appearing on The Tonight Show on Friday (21st March).
Kevin Bacon appeared on The Tonight Show on Friday and relived his Footloose days.
Bacon had previously referenced the occasion on 17th February, 30 years to the day since the release of Footloose by uploading a snap of the film on Instagram. The image is of his character Ren McCormack's iconic high school dance in which he and his classmates finally break free of the no dancing rule.

The young actress' crowning kicks off Golden Globes season.
Sosie Bacon, the only daughter of actor Kevin Bacon, has been selected as Miss Golden Globe 2014 and will replace Francesca Eastwood, daughter of Clint Eastwood and Frances Fisher, according to a press release reported by The Wrap.
Sosie Bacon Will Be Miss Golden Globe 2014.
The crowning was announced Thursday evening at a glamorous event held at West Hollywood restaurant Fig and Olive. Traditionally the child of a well-known celebrity, Miss or Mr Golden Globe is chosen each year by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to assist with the Globes ceremony.

Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick's daughter, Sosie Bacon, has been named Miss Golden Globe 2014. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association named Sosie Bacon yesterday (21st November).
Sosie Bacon has been named Miss Golden Globe 2014. The honorary award is awarded annually by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA). The award is usually presented to the daughter or son of a celebrity and first began in 1963 although it was not properly established - in an annual fashion - until 1971.

21-year-old Sosie has worked alongside her parents Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick on a number of projects. She made her debut in Loverboy, a film directed by her father, and has since acted alongside her mother in The Closer.
Eddie Cibrian was considered a rising star in Hollywood and despite his consistent work, the quality roles are yet to come in.
When Leann Rimes and Eddie Cibrian fell in love on the set of Northern Lights, things were already looking a little bleak for the American actor. Here was a guy with the looks of a genuine Hollywood leading star - a guy who had served his time on U.S. television (Sunset Beach), like many A-listers before him, George Clooney, Kevin Bacon, etc. So why has Cibrian - who turned 40 last week - lost his way in the tangled world of Hollywood?

In 2006, Cibrian joined the cast of Fox show Vanished midway through the series. The show focused on the disappearance of the wife of a Georgia senator, which is revealed as being part of a wider conspiracy. The family of the missing woman, a pair of FBI agents and a journalist are drawn into the ever-evolving mystery - sounds alright doesn't it? Well, it wasn't. And it was cancelled after nine of the thirteen episodes. Yep, that means Fox deemed it wasn't even worth revealing where the wife of the Georgian senator ended up.
Kyra Sedgwick, wife of actor Kevin Bacon, sliced the tip of her finger off on Saturday night (29th June 2013). She was, according to Bacon who posted pictures of her injury online, in the process of cutting kale when she obtained the injury.
Kevin Bacon posted pictures of his wife, Kyra Sedgwick, online after she accidently sliced the tip of her finger off. She was cutting kale when the injury occurred. The pictures were posted on Saturday evening (29th June) on Bacon's WhoSay account.

One picture shows his wife sitting looking understandably miserable on a hospital bed holding up her bandaged hand. Bacon tagged his wife in the picture and added the comment "in the ER. Kale isn't ALLWAYS HEALTHY... if you chop the end of your finger off".

Kevin Bacon's The Following is currently one of the hottest shows on TV right now, with audiences lapping up to gorefest that is the new Fox thriller. In a recent interview with Vulture, Bacon's co-star James Purefoy discussed his role and the one scene in particular that has women all over going green with envy.
Purefoy, who plays killer Joe Carroll, questioned why the subject of violence in the media is such a heavily discussed topic, citing Shakespeare's King Lear and Titus Andronicus as some of the most gruesome examples he could think of. He said: "I'm surprised that in a society, in a culture that's been watching violence on film, television, and stage for two and a half thousand years, anyone brings it up anymore."
As for his kiss with Bacon, James took the whole thing very lightheartedly, saying, "Yeah, I just remember his tongue flicking gently into my mouth. So forward of him. And in front of all those people. I thought what we had was private." If that kind of description doesn't get ladies swooning then who knows what will.

Following what seemed like months of Pro Kevin Bacon publicity, with Google introducing a geeky side project to determine Bacon Numbers - a way of finding out how far removed someone is from the well-travelled actor, and his appearance on EE's adverts, championing their new 4G mobile data network, his new show The Following finally hit TV screens last night.
The ratings have secured his agent a job for the next year at least; the high numbers will have something to do with Bacon's increased on-screen and internet exposure, resulting in strong figures, but now it's up to the integrity of the show; the writing and acting to ensure those numbers remain strong.
Most of the reviews have generally been favourable, and the show has more or less gone down well. The Star praise the casting of the show, saying it sets it apart from the myriad serial killer dramas out there. "The Following is, for what it is, great TV," says their review. "Two things set The Following apart, and both involve casting. First and foremost, there is its star, Kevin Bacon, an accomplished and prolific movie character actor in his first series, following the path of wife Kyra Sedgewick and The Closer."
A Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together Telethon was held last night in the hopes of bringing relief to the millions affected when Hurricane Sandy ripped through the East Coast of America.
NBC aired a commercial-free telethon last night (Nov 2) live from storm-ravaged Staten Island, with Matt Lauer helming the celeb fest that urged viewers across America to pledge what they could and help the millions suffering from the storm.
Christina Aguilera got things started, entering a dark stage and delivering a powerful, stripped down version of ‘Beautiful.’ After the Staten Island native’s performance, a rolling montage of just some of the destruction was played, ending with a still of the once bustling Jersey Shore, after which Jersey native Jon Bon Jovi gave acoustic performances of ‘Who Says You Can’t Go Home’ and ‘Living on a Prayer’ with guitarist Bob Bandiera and Lorenza Ponce on the violin.

The film is unique in its keen attention to the minutiae of the U.S. military's body transfer process. Taking Chance is almost exclusively interested in the power of ambiguous observation. Sure, there is a story with a beginning, middle, and end, but narrative isn't necessarily the film's foremost preoccupation; this is a movie that thrives on intimate characterization and quiet scrutiny.

Bucking the odds, MGM's Beauty Shop spins off from the successful Barbershop comedies, taking Queen Latifah's sassy stylist Gina Norris from the second installment and setting her up in a potential franchise all her own.

Based on the extremely controversial novel, Sleepers tells what is purported to be a true story of revenge in Hell's Kitchen in New York City. Four early-teenaged friends (played as adults by Patric, Pitt, Ron Eldard, and Billy Crudup -- who I have to mention just because I like to say "Crudup") are sent to a juvenile center when a prank goes wrong and almost kills a bystander. The brutality that occurs in the center does not need to be expounded upon, but suffice it's very horrible, and that guard Sean Nokes (Bacon) is the baddest of the bad guys.
