Mary Poppins himself Michael Rooker and Dylan O'Brien (The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials) will be teaming up soon for the post-apocalyptic monster movie Monster Problems.

Acting President: Actors Who Have Portrayed More than One U.S. President On Film

  • Cinelinx
Which actors are the most "Presidential"? To find out, we assembled this exclusive list of actors who have portrayed the President of the United States more than once.

Getting the opportunity to portray a Us President in film is rare. It can be a dignified role, and many times the actor has to be able to exhibit certain qualities we would traditionally associate with the Us head of state. Us Presidents are also depicted in film in a variety of ways. Some of them are the main characters for their respective films, where others are simply bit parts designed to represent the figurehead. Other roles may be satires, caricatures, or played for comedic effect. Regardless of the purpose or the depth of the role, there have been a limited number of Us President roles in the last century+ of motion picture projection.

Of course, some actors are more Presidential than others.

Robin Williams Suffered From Dementia In His Final Days, Says New Bio

Robin Williams Suffered From Dementia In His Final Days, Says New Bio
Actor Robin Williams was struggling with a brain disorder that was not immediately diagnosed, causing many of the bizarre symptoms that sapped him of his vitality and ultimately led him to take his own life.

That’s according to a new biography, Robin (Henry Holt & Co.) by Dave Itzkoff that’s out this month and details the final stages of Williams’s life.

Williams was initially diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, but his behaviors in his last year were uncharacteristic of that malady, leading some to blame drugs or alcohol for his problem. Finally, a neuropathologist saw him and correctly diagnosed his affliction: diffuse Lewy body dementia. It is the second-most-common type of progressive dementia after Alzheimer’s disease, as protein deposits in the brain affect thinking, memory, emotions and body movements.

Williams began to cry uncontrollably, forget his lines, and suffer from a shuffling gait in his last days,

The Predator production designer enlisted for live-action Akira

Having been in development for over 15 years now, it seems that the live-action Hollywood remake of Akira is finally starting to move forward towards production.

With Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi reportedly circling the director’s chair – and stating that he’s looking to adapt the manga, rather than the classic anime movie – it is now being reported that Warner Bros. has enlisted a production designer to help bring Neo-Tokyo to life.

According to Omega Underground, The Predator production designer Martin Whist has now boarded the project. Whist’s previous credits include Cloverfield, Super 8, The Cabin in the Woods, RoboCop and Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb.

Warner Bros. first picked up the rights to Akira in 2002, with a number of directors becoming attached over the years including Stephen Norrington (Blade), Ruairi Robinson (The Last Days on Mars), Allen and Albert Hughes (The Book of Eli) and

Trailer For New X-Men Series The Gifted Is Here!

Earlier this year, FX and Marvel worked together to bring the incredibly unique series Legion to FX. The series followed David Haller, who may very well be the most powerful mutant known to man. The show isn’t your typical superhero show, and if you were looking for something less abstract and artsy, you may have been disappointed. However, if you are one of those people, then this new mutant-centric series from Fox, The Gifted, may be more up your alley.

Last week, we got a first look at the upcoming network show (the pilot of which is directed by longtime X-Men helmer Bryan Singer), and today, they released a full trailer, and we have to say, it’s not half bad. Oftentimes with television shows — even with the best ones — we’re left with cheesy, silly-looking trailers that aren’t quite clear about stating their premise. Given the limited

Smit is a visual effects supervisor who also did the visual effects for “Kill Switch,” which looks at times like a cross between “District 9” and a video game movie.

Robin Williams' Final Movie Finally Gets a U.S. Release Date

Robin Williams' Final Movie Finally Gets a U.S. Release Date
After coming out more than two years ago in the U.K., Robin Williams' final movie is going to get released in the U.S. The comedy Absolutely Anything, in which Williams voices a dog, has finally secured distribution from Atlas Distribution Co.

Dan Stevens is having a bit of a moment.

Latest ‘Baywatch’ Trailer Released

Zac Efron. Dwayne Johnson. Muscles. Beach. Zac Efron’s and Dwayne Johnson’s muscles at a beach…

Now that we objectified male actors for a change, let’s dive deep into Baywatch, a Seth Gordon film that’s set to be released on May 28 of this year. Judging just from Gordon’s previous work on Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief, it looks funny, and it looks good.

Move over David Hasselhoff! Dwayne Johnson takes over his role as Mitch Buchanan, the super hunky main lifeguard who now has to deal with a new recruit, Matt Brody, and his sporadic ways. Originally played by David Charvet in the television series, this new lifeguard is, surprise, played by Zac Efron. Together, the two must learn to overcome their differences after they find some underground crime ring that could potentially destroy the Bay.

Remember Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine Cameo in Me And Earl And The Dying Girl?

There was one movie that many people knew that Wolverine had an unofficial cameo in and that’s Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. Since the filmed earned $363.2 million at the global box office in 2014, a good number of people were already well aware of it. However a lesser known film that only grossed $9.1 million also contained Jackman playing the Wolverine. Actually he plays himself talking about him playing the Wolverine, which is why you hear his Australian accent.

Celebrating Hugh Jackman's Wolverine

Mark Harrison Mar 7, 2017

Logan spoilers ahead, as we look back on Hugh Jackman's time as Wolverine...

This article contains minor spoilers for Logan.

Along with his Logan co-star Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman is the joint longest-serving superhero actor in movie history. He's played Logan, aka Wolverine, in nine out of ten X-Men films since the turn of the century. Jackman was even referenced in the tenth one that he wasn't in, last year's Deadpool, when our hero used a magazine photo of him as a makeshift mask.

But with Logan, a sad and violent drama that posits all of the character's previous adventures were sanitised Hollywood takes on a sad and violent life, Jackman is hanging up his vest and adamantium skeleton, and it's hard to know how the X-Men franchise will get on without him. Up until now, he's been a permanent fixture in a comic book movie

Amy Acker and More Join Fox's Untitled X-Men Series

The Untitled X-Men series set up at Fox is rounding out its cast. The Matt Nix-created series cast Stephen Moyer earlier this week, and now THR reports that Amy Acker, Emma Dumont, and Percy Hynes White have signed on to the show.

Of course, fans of Joss Whedon will be familiar with Acker, who had significant roles in Angel and Dollhouse and brought down the house as Beatrice in his Much Ado About Nothing. She also spent several seasons on Person of Interest. Acker will play Kate Stewart, “a woman who is struggling with her separation from her husband, Reed (the aforementioned Moyer), and her increasingly challenging teenage children. When her family situation takes a dark turn, she finds that she's stronger than she thinks.”

I’m sure you all remember Dumont as a ballerina/roller derby girl on Bunheads, because GeekTyrant readers were definitely among the ten people who watched that show.
