Jared Harris is truly acting royalty!
Born the son of legendary Irish actor Richard Harris (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone), he has been appearing in films and on television for almost 25 years. Harris began his career with small roles in such popular and critically acclaimed films as Far and Away, The Last of the Mohicans, Natural Born Killers, Smoke, Dead Man, I Shot Andy Warhol, Lost in Space, Igby Goes Down, Mr. Deeds, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
However, his big break came on the small screen with the hit series Fringe and Mad Men, which eventually led to playing the villain Professor James Moriarty in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Since then he has appeared in Lincoln, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, and Pompeii. He will soon appear in the big screen adaption of the popular ‘60s TV series The Man from U.N.C.L.E., as well as the remake of Poltergeist. But first, he can be seen in the new horror film The Quiet Ones, which also stars Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and opens in theaters on April 25th.
The film is loosely based on actual events and was directed by John Pogue (U.S. Marshals), based on a screenplay by Pogue, Craig Rosenberg (TV’s Lost), and Oren Moverman (Rampart). The Quiet Ones follows a university professor named Joseph Coupland (Harris), his team of students, and documentary filmmaker Brian McNeil (Claflin), as they conduct an experiment on the mentally ill Jane Harper (Olivia Cooke). However, the result uncovers terrifyingly dark and unexpected supernatural forces. In addition to Harris, Claflin, and Cooke, the movie also features Erin Richards (TV’s Gotham), and Rory Fleck-Byrne (Vampire Academy).
I recently had the absolute pleasure of speaking with the great Jared Harris about his work on The Quiet Ones. The seasoned actor discussed his new film, the true story it is based on, what intrigued him about the screenplay, his character’s motives, the project’s innovative use of “found footage,” the movie’s great one-liners, if he has fun making horror films, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., reuniting with his Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows director Guy Ritchie, and if he will return as Moriarty in a potential Sherlock Homes 3.
Joss Whedon is endowed with the gift of gab, and he flexed his conversational muscles with a few intriguing tidbits about Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Jason Segel has conflicting attitudes about technology in a new Sex Tape trailer, railing against cloud computing yet seeking Siri's assistance when he needs to perform CPR on a dog.
Cameron Diaz's attitude, meanwhile, is more straightforward as she seeks to eradicate out any trace of her naughty video.
When sophisticated cinephiles talk about the most important film festivals on Earth, they inevitably talk about Cannes, Sundance, and, inevitably, Federman.
The Cannes and Sundance festivals may have been around longer than the third, but neither allows some of the world's finest stand-up comedians to personally select and present their favorite classic movies. Obviously, then, the Wayne Federman International Film Festival is demonstrably superior to both.
Federman triumphantly launched his one-of-a-kind extravaganza in 2012, then repeated last year. Now, he's back for the 3rd Annual Wayne Federman Film Festival, which features comedians like Doug Benson, Kathy Griffin, Jeff Garlin, and T.J. Miller pairing stand-up and Q&A's with personal-favorite films such as Boogie Nights, The Dead Zone, Sweet Smell of Success, and The Bank Dick.
A trailer and TV spot from the beast's homeland both highlight that Godzilla is a devastating, helpless experience for the humans getting crushed underfoot.
Both also conclude with an epic shot that comes this close to fully revealing the redesigned monster from head to toe.

A new trailer for this summer's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For crams a whole lot of Sin City into just sixty seconds.
If it's recognizable to a whole lot of people, some studio will attempt to make a movie out of it.
It is with absolutely no surprise, then, that we receive the news that Sony Pictures and toy giant Mattel are champing at the bit to make a live action Barbie movie franchise.
