    Tomorrow [Today], more than a year after its Cannes Competition premiere, Roman Polanski's "Venus in Fur" finally opens in US theaters. It's the 20th narrative feature of a career that now spans six decades, so a list themed around the Oscar-winning director's work seemed in order. Given that "Venus in Fur" -- Polanski's third film, after "Death and the Maiden" and "Carnage," to replicate the scale and pace of an intimate stage production -- is based so explicitly around notions of performance, and the push-pull relationship between actor and director, a selection of his most successful actorly collaborations seemed the obvious way to go.

    Like so many auteurs celebrated for their own idiosyncratic style, Polanski's facility with actors isn't discussed as frequently as his formal abilities and preoccupations, yet he's always had the knack for drawing surprising work out of established stars and newcomers alike -- often casting actors intriguingly out of their element, or finding facets of interest in their presence that other filmmakers haven't managed to tap. (Few, if any, directors have seen quite what he did in Adrien Brody.) In his debut feature, "Knife in the Water," he confidently steered a largely non-professional ensemble, and has since frequently excelled with young or inexperienced actors -- three of the names on this list were aged below 23 at the time of filming.

    Narrowing down the list was tougher than I thought it would be: I wanted room for Jon Finch and Francesca Annis's fresh, committed work in "Macbeth," for John Huston in "Chinatown" and Donald Pleasence in "Cul-de-sac," even for Polanski himself in "The Tenant." And coming in narrowly at #11 was Polanski's wife, Emmanuelle Seigner, for her vibrant, self-effacing turn in "Venus in Fur." It's a case of apparent miscasting revealing fresh angles in the material: Seigner is significantly older than the character as written and initially performed on stage, but her performance turns the play into a witty comment on the indignities visited upon older actresses.

    I wanted Seigner in there, but the competition was just too strong. Who made the cut, then? Click through the gallery above, and share your own thoughts and favorites in the comments.


    10. Adrien Brody, "The Pianist"
    Year: 2002
    Honors: Academy Award, National Society of Film Critics Award, Cesar Award, Boston Society of Critics Award (Best Actor)

    One that I imagine will be a bit higher up a lot of people's lists, Brody's soulful, subtly intuitive turn as Polish Holocaust survivor Wladyslaw Szpilman has grown on me in the years since its surprise Oscar win. It's a performance of immense physicality, but not ostentatiously so, his gangly frame and pen-and-wash features tilting, sagging and contorting with each new trial Szpilman must endure -- suggesting a hollowed spirit, but never a defeated one. It seems unimaginable now that Joseph Fiennes was Polanski's first choice for the role.


    5. Faye Dunaway, "Chinatown"
    Year: 1974
    Honors: Academy Award, Golden Globe, BAFTA nominations (Best Actress)

    In Evelyn Mulwray, Dunaway crafts a femme fatale sufficiently sleek, chic and enamel-hard to make you wish the actress had been around for the golden age of film noir, while exerting an angular, abrasive sexuality that makes you glad she was around for Polanski's provocatively updated take on the genre. It's a performance that gradually emerges from behind its own widow's veil: what initially seems all look and attitude -- and what look and attitude -- turns out to be a carefully managed front for ugly truths and roiling psychological pain. All that, and her chemistry with Jack Nicholson is something wild.


    3. Sigourney Weaver, "Death and the Maiden"
    Year: 1994
    Honors: none

    With admiring apologies to Ellen Ripley, dare I suggest this is the best work Weaver has ever done? Inheriting a role originated on the West End by Penelope Wilton, and played on Broadway by Glenn Close, Weaver fares better than any other actor in one of Polanski's stage adaptations, playing both up to and against the material's theatricality. As a South American housewife confronting a former tormentor from her days as a political prisoner, the actress balances grandly expressive pronouncements with microscopic physical business -- she's sympathetically scarred, but still terrifying in full flow. How did awards bodies fail to notice?


    1. Mia Farrow, "Rosemary's Baby"
    Year: 1968
    Honors: Golden Globe, BAFTA nominations (Best Actress)

    Mia Farrow's name is one that repeatedly crops up when lists are made of the finest stars never to receive an Oscar nomination -- and it's an oversight that really ought to have been prevented as early as this. As the New York trophy wife turned oblivious carrier for Satan's child, Farrow could easily have played Rosemary Woodhouse as a shrill, simpering victim, but her performance never loses its guarded intelligence, even as it enters the full throes of paranoia -- the character's gradual progress toward complete awareness of her exploitation is charted on her open face with heartbreaking clarity and detail; it's a performance that inspired a whole new breed of female horror protagonists, few of them as alert or affecting.

    It's the end of an era! Specifically, an era when you could readily locate and pay full price for pastel terrycloth trackpants with the word "JUICY" emblazoned real big across the butt.

    Juicy Couture—early-oughts icon and ever-present uniform of girls who were mean to me in college— is shuttering all of its US stores this month.

    Via Salon:

    Sources on Juicy's home planet – L.A. — told Racked that several locations have already gone belly up, and those that are still open are offering sales of up to 70 percent off everything. Not only that, but the company's recently announced collaboration with shoe brand Steve Madden – snarkily described by Racked this month as "your early aughts dream come true"– will reportedly only be available internationally.



    So stock up now, kiddos! There really is no substitute for a pair of pants that lets you know what's inside them.

    A few celebs we know who rocked Juicy---

    According to a mighty internet sleuth, Nathan Fillion will play Richard Rider in this summer’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. That’s right. After he was skeeted out of the Green Lantern gig (I love Ryan Reynolds, but he shouldn’t have been Hal Jordan) Nathan Fillion has a proper marquee role.

    He’ll supposedly have a teeny tiny role in Guardians, but this will almost certainly lead to bigger and better things. If he doesn’t appear in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, then he’ll surely appear in some other cosmic movie. I imagine an Annihilation themed flick with intersecting Cosmic heroes. Minus Silver Surfer, of course, since he belongs to Fox Studios.

    With DC’s own Justice League movie releasing in 2017, Marvel’s upping the ante. Nova’s obviously inspired by the Green Lantern Corp, so by introducing a fan favorite like Fillion as the lead so much sooner than WB’s rebooted Hal Jordan, Marvel claims influence over the whole ‘outer space superhero cops’ genre. After all, the fickle world of general movie goers only have room in their heart’s for one interstellar detective, and supposing Marvel Studios delivers a compelling Fillion Nova, they’ll easily claim masses.

  • 06/20/14--19:59: Mykki Blanco is #TeamTerry
  • Early Friday morning, June 20, New York-based rapper Mykki Blanco shared this photo of himself and Terry Richardson, with the caption “#TeamTerry.”


    The photo was taken during a November 2012 shoot at Terry’s New York studio. Richardson also photographed Blanco in 2011 for a Happy Socks campaign, along with A$AP Rocky, Action Bronson, and Sky Ferreira.

    Backlash against Terry Richardson intensified this week after a New York magazine cover story, in which “Uncle Terry” denied years of allegations that he coerces models into performing sexual acts during photo shoots.

    The Disney Channel has put out many, many movies over the years.
    Here is Buzzfeed's Definitive Ranking of these movies.
    FULL LIST @ THE SOURCE



    6. Cadet Kelly (2003)

    002ckl_hilary_duff_048


    Let’s be real: Kelly Collins was basically Lizzie McGuire uprooted to George Washington Military Academy, where she was under the surveillance of her stepdad (aka “Sir,” aka Gary Cole) and her cadet captain (Disney Channel favorite Christy Carlson Romano). With the addition of some ribbon dancing and future Iceman Shawn Ashmore, plus the important life lesson about staying true to oneself while testing your limits, Cadet Kelly withstands the test of time.



    5. The Cheetah Girls (2003)

    enhanced-32581-1401683628-1

    If there was any upside to the deterioration of 3LW, it came in the form of The Cheetah Girls, the less-often-recognized-but-thoroughly-enjoyable trilogy among the DCOM series. A) Raven-Symoné plays a young diva named Galleria, B) Kiely Williams moved on from “promithes, promithes” to take on the role of Aquanetta, and C) The Cheetah Girls had more girl power in their animal-printed newsboy caps than the Spice Girls. You know you still have “Cinderella” in your iTunes.



    4. High School Musical (2006)

    enhanced-2284-1401682341-1

    The Disney Channel Original Movie that revived the Disney Channel Original Movie for a slightly different generation was admittedly even a favorite among those who enjoyed the Wish Upon A Stars of the collection. The Grease-like musical introduced us to Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, and a slew of future Dancing with the Stars cast members as well as the second best song in the DCOM arsenal: “We’re All In This Together.” (It’s OK if you’re singing it now and doing the dance moves in your head. No judgment here.)




    3. Smart House (1999)

    enhanced-buzz-12158-1401997632-14

    Today, we have wi-fi lightbulbs, and Apple recently announced you’ll soon be able to tell your iPhone you want to get ready for bed, so would you dim the lights, please? But these technological advancements are nothing compared to the true “smart house,” a kind of mid-century housewife Siri named Pat (Katey Segal!) that Ben Cooper (Disney mainstay and eventual Pretty Little Liars star Ryan Merriman) and his family win in some sort of raffle.



    2. Brink! (1998)

    enhanced-buzz-23641-1401997778-22

    It’s the late ’90s, a Friday night, and you and your friends or siblings are huddled around one of those little TV sets that has a built-in VCR. What are you watching? Probably Brink!. If it wasn’t the first DCOM you saw, it was probably the one that got you hooked. Brink! tells the story of a talented inline skater who wrestles with the option of leaving behind his crew of “soul” skaters and selling out for sponsorships to help out his struggling family — but being forced to hang out with a bunch of assholes. The movie goes through all the hallmarks of a classic DCOM — a completely random but cool-looking sport, the nice guys and the mean guys, and a good-hearted kid who wants to help his dad’s business. In the end, the good guys win. Because that’s the way it should be.



    1. Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century

    enhanced-buzz-21466-1402003106-9

    When kids of the ’90s talk wistfully about DCOMs, it usually goes something like this: “OMG! Remember Zenon?” And of course, how could you not remember the greatest DCOM of all time, with its campy space station lifestyle, Raven Symoné, glittery sartorial choices, and beloved music? Zoom zoom zoom, you make my heart go boom boom, Zenon. Always.




    List #55-#7 @ The Source


    ONTD, What was your fave Disney Channel movie?
    Mine are: "Wish Upon A Star", "Stepsister From Planet Weird", "Phantom of the Megaplex", "Zenon", and "Smart House"

    I think they left out "Genius"...

    Celebrated gay porn star and former Falcon Studios performer Cameron Fox has died, according to several industry insiders within the gay porn community.

    The actor – real name Shane Eugene Davis, passed away last Thursday. He was 36-years-old.

    The Tulsa, Texas native reportedly entered the gay porn industry in 1999 at the ripe age of 22. He quickly became known for his performance and endowment, racking up at least two awards before leaving the industry in 2006.

    News of his death began circulating on social media yesterday, though no official cause of death has been reported.

    A gay porn reviewer from Chronicles of Pornia remembers Fox: There was a time during the 1990's gay porn industry pantheon when stars were truly stars whom did not need to pander for adult fame, rather, they simply let their work speak loudly and proudly.

    Cameron Fox was one such person. I never once felt as though Cameron was phoning in a performance. He was virile, engaged and present at all times. He gave more than 100% to his action scenes. Fox knew how to give his partners and his fans what they wanted to see. The mark of a real porn star.

    While most teens their age are relaxing and enjoying their summer holidays, Kendall and Kylie Jenner were once again hitting the road.

    The sisters were spotted catching a flight from Los Angeles, California, on Friday and while hoping on a plane usually means heading on a break, for these busy sisters it was far more likely to be yet another work trip.

    Kendall and Kylie have only been back home for just a few days after hosting their first awards show, MuchMusic, in Canada on Sunday night.

    Kendall & Kylie Jenner In Talks To Co-Host Teen Talk Show

    Move over, Kris Jenner and Khloe Kardashian! There may be two new Kardashian talk show hosts in the making – Kylie and Kendall! The sisters proved they can hold their own on the microphone after their successful stint at the MuchMusic Awards on June 15, and now they’re in talks to host a new talk show aimed at teens, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

    Kylie Jenner, 15, and Kendall Jenner, 18, could be on their way to co-hosting their very own talk show about teen issues. “So far, they both love the idea,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. So do we! Especially since the famous sisters have plenty of celeb friends like Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber who could make guest appearances.

    Kylie and Kendall may be on the verge of another televised adventure, after they showed the world just how comfortable they were working together at the MuchMusic Awards in Toronto, Canada on June 15.

    “Following their huge success of co-hosting the MuchMusic Awards show in Canada, Kendall and Kylie have been in talks to have their own talk show geared towards teens and teen issues,” a family friend tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

    Of course, E!, which has been home to almost every Kardashian show, is the network looking to make this teen talk show a reality, our source says.

    In addition to discussing serious issues on the show, the reality starlets would also interview celebrity guests.

    “So far, they both love the idea, and if it did happen, they’d want to focus on subjects like self-esteem, dating, fashion, and celebrity interviews. There is a really strong market for this right now, and between the two of them, they have so many fans,” says the insider.

    From Justin and Selena to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Kylie and Kendall certainly would have plenty of potential famous guests to choose from.

    So what do YOU think, ONTDers? Should Kendall and Kylie host their own talk show about teen issues? Would YOU watch?


    Kylie's Stellar Style

    kylie-jenner-mint-swimsuit-get-the-look-lead

    This teen is taking after her sexy older sisters as she loves to suit up in swimwear! Like her plunging one-piece?

    Kylie Jenner, 16, looked fab posing for an Instagram shot in a plunging one-piece bathing suit while standing in front of the stunning Kardashian pool at their Calabasas home on June 14. The star rocked one of the biggest swimwear trends of the season, the one-piece — however, her version had a revealing update thanks to the plunging neckline.






    How are they going to have a show if Kendall can't even read? Maybe they can open their show talking about the origin of slut-shaming as well as discuss their next feminist novel and college plans...

    June is Pride Month, commemorating the 1969 Stonewall riots and asking all of us to remember how we got where we are today. So we thought it might be fun to start up an annual Pride Month poll here at /bent, asking our readers to tell us the films, television shows, songs and people (both fictional and real) that have been important to them in the past 45 years.


    Seventy-two people responded, and we'll be sharing the results over the next few weeks, with the fifth poll up today: The most important LGBT musicians or bands of the last 45 years.
    Now, before we get to the results: We do realize doing this kind of thing is highly subjective, which is why we're going with "most important" and not "best." We hoped that what resulted was eclectic mix of musicians that have helped shape the queer cultural landscape. And we think it really is. But here are some interesting things to note before you go through the list:

    • The "points" listed next to each film refers to the way we tabulated things. People voted in top 10 lists, so if the person was #1, it got 10 points, #2 got 9 points, etc.



    • Men made up for the majority with 16, with 9 women represented.



    • Just over half of the list was made up by Americans, with 13. Canada and the UK split the rest, with 4 from the former and 8 from the latter. Notably, the top 10 was 5 from the UK, 3 Americans and 2 Canadians.



    • The genres represented were all of the place, from pop to folk to hip hop to rock to electronic to jazz.



    • Newer artists did represent, with Frank Ocean, Tegan & Sara, Lady Gaga and Beth Ditto all in the top 16. Though that said, we were pleasantly surprised to see the list generally dominated by older acts. 14 of the 25 began their careers in the 1980s or earlier.



    • And in case you're curious, the 10 runner-ups, in order of votes, were: Indigo Girls, Ricky Martin, The B52s, Owen Palllett, Alison Goldfrapp, Jonsi, Jamie Stewart, Azis, Sia and The Hidden Cameras (which frankly is a pretty amazing 10 in itself).


    So without further ado, we present the 25 most important LGBT musicians, according to you. Definitely use the comments section to discuss your thoughts and/or your own choices, but remember - these were your picks - do don't blame us if your offended about their quality or lack of diversity through the LGBT spectrum. And watch the clips!



    10. George Michael - 86


    8. Frank Ocean - 96


    3. Melissa Etheridge - 140


    2. Freddie Mercury - 164


    1. Elton John - 180

    Three other people suffered non-life-threatening injuries during the attack late Thursday in a parking lot at Red Rocks.

    Investigators have not released a possible motive for the shooting and said they do not know if ScHoolboy Q was targeted. No arrests have been made.

    "It just happened 12 hours ago. We have a lot to learn," said Jacki Kelley, a spokeswoman for the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department.

    ScHoolboy Q, whose birth name is Quincy Matthew Hanley, is from Los Angeles. His most recent album, "Oxymoron," debuted at No. 1 earlier this year and reflects his life as a father and former gang member.

    He and Kendrick Lamar, who was nominated for seven Grammys this year, are members of Black Hippy.

    ScHoolboy Q said on Twitter Friday that he was OK.



    "im str8...... dont trip," he wrote.

    Ray Alba, a representative for ScHoolboy Q, didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

    The rapper and at least four other people were in a white SUV that was fired on at the venue in the foothills west of Denver, authorities said.

    They drove themselves to a Denver intersection about 15 miles away, apparently in search of a hospital, before being stopped by Denver police and taken for medical attention, Kelley said.

    ScHoolboy Q and another uninjured person were briefly handcuffed while police assessed the situation, but no one in the vehicle was arrested. Kelley said ScHoolboy Q was not a suspect in the shooting.

    Nas and Flying Lotus also performed at the concert that benefited three groups, including the Gang Rescue and Support Project of Denver.

    "We want to know what's going on so we can help out in any way," said Cisco Gallardo, director of the gang rescue group. "There could have been (a) prior beef, prior problems."

    About 4,500 people attended the concert at the amphitheater, which seats as many as 9,525 people.

    Promoters said the gang rescue group got 5 percent of the profits. Two other groups also got 5 percent each: Preserve the Rocks, which helps preserve the Red Rocks venue, and Helping Our People Excel, a Denver-area charity with a food pantry and other services.

    Investigators stopped and questioned each car that left the venue. Traffic was chaotic and slow, but "we had a shooter out there," sheriff's spokesman Mark Techmeyer said.

    Witnesses were interviewed until early Friday.

    The amphitheater and surrounding park in the foothills west of Denver are popular with joggers and sightseers. Most of the park had been reopened, but the area of the shooting remained sealed off.

    The Beatles and Grateful Dead have performed at Red Rocks, where U2 filmed "Under a Blood Red Sky."

    All in the family! Madonna may have split from her ex Carlos Leon more than 15 years ago, but she met him for dinner with their daughter Lourdes just this week.

    The trio reunited in New York City on Thursday, June 19, dining at Manhattan's trendy downtown lounge and restaurant, Beauty & Essex. Madonna, 55, arrived in a NYC-chic look, an onlooker tells Us, wearing a black top, black pants, and horn-rimmed glasses. See pics of Lourdes and Madonna through the years.

    Madonna's eldest child Lourdes, 17, who graduates from LaGuardia High School this month, kept it casual in a T-shirt and shorts, and slung a backpack over her shoulder. Hunky trainier and actor Leon, 47, rocked a silver pendant on a chain over a blue T-shirt with a pair of jeans.

    Leon and Madonna were together in the mid-1990s and split in 1997, after the October 1996 birth of Lourdes.

    An observer tells Us that the modern family "looked like they were having a great time," and spent the evening "laughing, joking, and enjoying each other's company."

    During their Beauty & Essex feast, the trio dined on basil pesto ravioli, the restaurant's take on a New York pretzel, salt & vinegar fries, kale and apple salad, and a crispy eggplant pizzetta.

    A scrubby landscape. A pair of white pants floating through the air. A large vehicle driven by an overexcited man in a pair of tighty whities and a gas mask.

    You seem to be watching the opening minutes of the first episode of “Breaking Bad,” but you notice a few differences. The vehicle full of drug-lab paraphernalia and dangerous fumes is not an RV; it’s a decrepit school bus. When the driver staggers out for a breath of fresh air, he puts his shirt on so that he can play the rest of the scene semi-modestly. And when he picks up a video camera to record what he thinks will be his last testament, he doesn’t say, “My name is Walter Hartwell White.” He says, “Mi nombre es Walter Blanco.”

    What you’re actually watching is the first episode of “Metastasis,” the Spanish-language telenovela version of “Breaking Bad.” The premiere is posted online at Hulu, and seven episodes are available for Hulu Plus subscribers, at the same time that the series is having a broadcast run on UniMás. On television, where it plays every weeknight, the telenovela — which encompasses the entire story line of five seasons of “Breaking Bad” — will play out in about three months.

    “Metastasis,” shot in the high desert in Colombia, is an episode-for-episode, practically shot-for-shot remake, done with considerably less time and money than were spent on the American original on AMC. (The show’s creator, Vince Gilligan, had no input in the adaptation.) A “Breaking Bad” fan will be aware that this is a lesser version, but there’s an interesting halo effect: The pull of the original is so strong, and you’re so busy making connections between the two, that the more routine (though quite competent) cinematography and staging aren’t really bothersome.

    A greater impediment for many American viewers will be the lack, for now, of English subtitles, even on Hulu. It seems likely that fan-subtitled versions will appear in obscure and illegal quarters of the Internet. But if you know the original, it’s surprisingly easy to follow along. When Walter Blanco looks into the camera and tells his wife — Skyler, in the original — “Cielo, tu eres el amor de mi vida,” there’s no mistaking what he means.

    Hulu.

    I saw the first episode and it's almost word by word like BrBa. The actors are great (they're well known Colombian actors), music, cinematography, everything is good. Maybe fans will get bored because it's the same show but in Spanish.

    If that rumored Batman movie does pop up on the Warner Bros. calendar, Daniel Radcliffe has a casting suggestion for Robin: himself.

    In a “rapid fire” Q&A with Buzzfeed, the Harry Potter star was asked if he’d ever be willing to appear in another franchise. He said yes, and the host responded by asking which one.



    “Batman. If they reboot that again I’ll do that too,” Radcliffe said when asked which franchise he’d like to appear in. “It’s happening, isn’t it? With Ben Affleck. I could be Robin, I’m perfect.”

    Radcliffe also shared his thoughts on England being out of the World Cup, his favorite sport to watch (American football) and his favorite band (The Pixies).
