Antonio Banderas is no stranger to playing Spanish lovers, but he’s more than a handsome hunk in The Other Man. Banderas co-stars with Laura Linney and Liam Neeson as the mysterious rival for the affections of a married woman whose husband sets out to track him down.
Parade.com’s Jeanne Wolf found out that exploring the dimensions of love and commitment made him think about his own 13-year marriage to Melanie Griffith.
“It’s weird, but possible. Melanie and I, what we do is, believe it or not, just live day by day. We walk in this path together and we don’t know if the path is going to take us to that goal of being together forever. I do hope some day we can just look at each other and go, ‘Wow, we’ve been together for 40 years.’ Our marriage is definitely working, in spite of a lot of obstacles…”
Clive Owen doesn’t shoot a gun, drive a fast car or have a romance with a beautiful woman in his latest film. The dashing star is taking a break from action and adventure on the big screen to star as a widower struggling to raise two sons in the deeply moving The Boys Are Back.
Owen told Parade.com’s Jeanne Wolf that he felt right at home trying to keep up with two kids.
“This film is about being a parent from a guy’s perspective and I find it very touching and I could relate to a lot of it. What you see is a part of my life. Parenting has been a priority for me. I don’t have boys, but I’ve got two girls, aged 10 and 12, and I’ve always considered helping to raise them to be separate from making movies. I go off and make movies and then I come home and I’m a father. I look after my girls….”
After his TV series, My Own Worst Enemy, was cancelled last year, Christian Slater was immediately tapped by Jerry Bruckheimer to star in The Forgotten, debuting tonight on ABC.
He seems happy with the new cast, a new network and a chance to play a detective driven by the disappearance of his young daughter to create a team dedicated to searching for missing persons.
Parade.com’s Jeanne Wolf found out that Slater is spooked by the idea of losing someone you love.
“It’s not a huge leap. I mean, God forbid that any of us would ever have to go through what this particular character is going through on The Forgotten. But, I certainly know that I can identify with loving your family and loving your kids and thinking they’re the most important things in your life. Losing one of them is just not something you want to give a lot of thought to…”
James Kyson Lee has become a hot up-and-comer thanks to Heroes. Playing the handsome Ando on the hit series has brought him a lot of fans–and followers on Twitter.
Parade.com’s Jeanne Wolf found out that Lee, who plays time-traveling Hiro’s skeptical sidekick, is willing to spill a little about what to expect when Heroes returns tonight.
“I think you learn that any time you are part of a series that launches so successfully there are expectations and pressures that come with it. At the end of the day, there’s no way you can try to meet all of them. But I think Heroes is sort of coming back to its core and we’re saying, ‘Let’s return to what made us special in the first place.’ We’re also focusing on less characters per episode…”
Chevy Chase is finally back in primetime in Community, debuting tonight on NBC. The former SNL regular who went on to big-screen stardom plays a CEO who decides to hit the books again at a local college — and maybe hit on a few girls too.
Parade.com’s Jeanne Wolf found out why Chase, who has the honor of being the oldest cast member, was ready to get back on campus.
“I laughed out loud when I read the pilot for Community. I rarely, if ever, have laughed at a script rather than to say, ‘Yeah, it’s pretty clever.’ I know it’s hard to figure out what will make people laugh. It’s just something that you internally register…”
