Bruce Campbell Joins The Cast Of ‘Fargo’ As Future President Ronald Reagan

Actor, director, author and international geek icon Bruce Campbell has more than the upcoming Starz series Ash vs. Evil Dead on his slate of future acting projects. He just signed on to play none other than actor-turned-politician Ronald Reagan on the critically acclaimed hit FX series Fargo.

Fargo, which is based on Joel and Ethan Coen‘s Oscar-winning 1996 comic thriller of the same name, premiered early last year to rave reviews, great ratings, and went on to win three Emmy awards and two Golden Globes (one of the latter went to star Billy Bob Thornton). The second season will be a prequel to the first and take place in the late 1970s, when Reagan was mounting his first campaign to be President of the United States.

‘Fargo’ Season 2 Adds Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst As Husband And Wife Couple
  |  @   |  

The first season of FX’s Fargo, based on the Joel and Ethan Coen film of the same name, was the kind of slow-burn dark comedy crime drama that I crave. It actually would have been fine if the series was just that one story arc. But earning the kinds of acclaim and acolytes it did after its debut, it only made sense for the network to ask Noah Hawley to write the series’ second season.

Though Fargo didn’t take place in the same city, it did have some nods to the film and used the same tones. Now season two will be pretty much the same. Rather than take place after the events of the first season, season two will take place long before Lorne Malvo and Lester Nygaard ever crossed paths. Rumor has it Jeffery Donavan and Nick Offerman have been offered roles, but have yet to be confirmed. What has been confirmed is that Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man) and Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad) are joining the series. Hit the jump for more.

Kirsten Dunst First Kiss Was Brad Pitt In ‘Interview With The Vampire’ (Video)
  |  @   |  

When Interview With The Vampire hit theaters back in 1994, my young self couldn’t get enough of long-haired Brad Pitt as the vampire Louis. There was one scene where the young Kirsten Dunst gets to kiss Brad Pitt and I remember thinking of the 11-year-old actress, that lucky bitch.

It’s 20 years later, and Dunst recently told Conan O’Brien on Conan that that kiss was her very first one, but that at that age, she thought it was “icky” (!!!!!).

Watch the video interview here below.

Upside Down, starring Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess, the film follows the story of a futuristic, Romeo and Juliet-like pair of star-crossed lovers who live in literally two different worlds. Think of it as Another Earth, just more romantic and likely much more impressive.

Movie Review: Melancholia

Directed by Lars von Trier
Starring Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Alexander Skarsgard, John Hurt, Stellan Skarsgard and Charlotte Rampling
Release Date: November 11, 2011

To watch Terrance Malick’s distinct, creative rendering of the beginning of the universe in The Tree of Life and then experiencing Lars von Trier‘s incendiary vision of the universe plummeting to eventual debris is to witness two artists displaying unseen audacity as they tackle subjects (beginning and end of times) that once seemed un-filmable. The caustic, operatic, haunting and celestial opening shots to von Trier’s Melancholia, which are set to the Tristan and Isolde Prelude in slow motion, depict a world, from an intimate perspective, gradually proceeding to its imminent demise. These horror-laden images, which are intimations of what will transpire later in the film, are surpassingly beautiful and an overwhelming indicator of the astonishing horror and gloom that will pervade the entire film. It is as if we are plunging into a much disagreeable state, one that anticipates the most tremulous and hectic occurrences to transpire. Melancholia is a headfirst dive into an abyss that assuredly glorifies the confusion and paranoia that is impetuously at work within the human mind. And by the film’s end, we realize that Melancholia is a remarkable and grim testimony of human frailty.
