Academy Award-winner Billy Bob Thornton is best known for his work as a screenwriter, director, and actor in both critically acclaimed and financially successful feature films. But now the actor will tackle the small screen with his new FX series Fargo, which premieres April 15th and is based on the Oscar-winning Coen Brothers movie. 

Thornton first gained attention as a screenwriter and supporting actor for One False Move, which earned him an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Screenplay. He would go on to write and star in the short film Some Folks Call It a Sling Blade, which was directed by the late George Hickenlooper (Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse). He reprised his role as Karl Childers in the feature length adaption of the short film, simply entitled Sling Blade, which he also wrote and directed. The film earned him an Academy Award-nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role, as well as winning an Academy Award for Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay). He would later direct All the Pretty Horses, Daddy and Them, and Jayne Mansfield’s Car, as well as co-write Sam Raimi’s The Gift

However, Thornton is also a celebrated actor having appeared in such beloved films as Tombstone, Dead Man, The Apostle, U Turn, A Simple Plan (which earned him an Academy Award-nomination for Best Supporting Actor), Armageddon, Primary Colors, Monster’s Ball, Bandits, The Man Who Wasn’t There, Bad Santa, Love Actually, Friday Night Lights, Bad News Bears, The Astronaut Farmer, Eagle Eye, Faster, Puss in Boots, and Parkland. He will be seen next on the big screen in the feature film version of the hit HBO series Entourage, and is rumored to reprise his role in a possible Bad Santa 2. 

In Fargo, Thornton plays a drifter named Lorne Malvo who arrives in a small Minnesota town and influences the population with his malice and violence, which including an insurance salesman named Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman). In addition to Thornton and Freeman, the exceptional cast also includes Allison Tolman (TV’s Prison Break), Colin Hanks (High School), Bob Odenkirk (Nebraska), Kate Walsh (TV’s Full Circle), Adam Goldberg (Saving Private Ryan), Jordan Peele (Wanderlust), Keegan-Michael Kay (Hell Baby), Joey King (Oz the Great and Powerful), and Oliver Platt (X-Men: First Class). Academy Award-winning writers and directors Joel and Ethan Coen (Inside Llewyn Davis) return as executive producers, along with Noah Hawley (Bones), and also penned three of the show’s episodes. 

I recently had the absolute pleasure of briefly speaking to Billy Bob Thornton while on a conference call promoting Fargo. The Oscar-winning actor and I discussed how his previous work on a Coen Brothers film prepared him for his role on Fargo, and why his good friend - the late great musician Warren Zevon ("Werewolves of London," "Lawyers, Guns And Money"), should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

It’s time to once again “Get in the Cage” with Nicolas Cage!!!

At IAR, we’ve had the absolute pleasure of interviewing the Academy Award-winning actor several times over the years. First at San Diego Comic-Con 2011, and later at the press days for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and The Frozen Ground. Cage is truly a delight to speak with, and is one of the finest actors of his generation. He is definitely a one of a kind talent, and has never been afraid to try different approaches to achieve a certain performance. That's high praise!!!

He is appeared in an eclectic list of movies in his almost 35 year long career, which range from critically acclaimed independent films, to blockbuster box office hits. His distinguished cinematic resume includes, among others, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Rumble Fish, Peggy Sue Got Married, Raising Arizona, Moonstruck, Wild at Heart, Guarding Tess, Kiss of Death, Leaving Las Vegas (for which he won an Academy Award for Best Actor), The Rock, Con Air, Face/Off, Snake Eyes, Bringing Out the Dead, The Family Man, Adaptation., Matchstick Man, National Treasure, Lord of War, World Trade Center, Ghost Rider, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Kick-Ass, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, The Croods, and The Frozen Ground

Cage’s latest film, which is entitled Joe, has been earning him some of the best reviews of his career and opens in theaters on April 11th. Directed by David Gordon Green (Prince Avalanche), the film revolves around Joe (Cage), an ex-con and the unlikeliest of role models. When he meets a 15-year-old boy named Gary (Tye Sheridan), he is faced with the choice of redemption or ruin. 

I recently had the absolute pleasure to once again “Get in the Cage” and speak with Nicolas Cage, along with other select members of the press, about his work on Joe and his fascinating career. The Oscar-winner discussed his latest film, his “Western Kabuki” style of acting, returning to a more realistic approach, why he wanted to make Joe, working with director David Gordon Green, the actor’s eclectic career, and what he learned as a child about pain from vanilla Haagen-Dazs ice cream and Bruce Lee

Available on Blu-ray and DVD beginning April 1st is Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, a sequel to the cult hit Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. The film was once again directed by Adam McKay (The Other Guys), and written by McKay and Will Ferrell (Casa de Mi Padre). In addition to Ferrell, the film also stars returning cast members Steve Carell (The Way Way Back), Paul Rudd (This Is 40), Christina Applegate (Hall Pass), Fred Willard (WALL-E), Chris Parnell (21 Jump Street), and Vince Vaughn (Delivery Man), as well as new cast members Meagan Good (Brick), James Marsden (X-Men), Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), and Greg Kinnear (Movie 43), and cameo appearances by Harrison Ford (Paranoia), Will Smith (Men in Black 3), Jim Carrey (Kick-Ass 2), Sacha Baron Cohen (The Dictator), Kirsten Dunst (Melancholia), Tina Fey (Muppets Most Wanted), Amy Poehler (Free Birds), Liam Neeson (The Grey), John C.

Opening in theaters on April 11th is the new horror film Oculus from writer/director Mike Flanagan (Absentia). The movie stars Karen Gillan (Guardians of the Galaxy), Brenton Thwaites (Blue Lagoon: The Awakening), James Lafferty (S. Darko), Katee Sackhoff (The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia), and Rory Cochrane (Argo). 

IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had the pleasure of sitting down with writer/director Mike Flanagan to talk about his work on Oculus. The filmmaker discussed his new movie, adapting it from his short film, why he didn't want it to be a "found footage"movie, using two different timelines, his love for Battlestar Galactica and Dr. Who, and working with Katee Sackhoff and Karen Gillan. 

While I’ll always love Christophe Reeve, Tom Welling might just be my favorite actor to ever play Clark Kent/Superman!

Welling played the man of steel for ten seasons on the popular WB/CW series Smallville and brought the iconic character to life for a whole new generation. Since then he has appeared in several films including the Cheaper by the Dozen series, The Fog, and Parkland. He now appears opposite Academy Award-winner Kevin Costner (Man of Steel, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, 3 Days to Kill) in the new football film Draft Day, which was directed by Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters, Dave), and opens in theaters on April 11th. 

Draft Day revolves around Cleveland Browns general manager Sonny Weaver (Costner) who has the opportunity to rebuild his team at the NFL Draft when he trades for the number one pick. Now he must decide what he's willing to sacrifice on a life-changing day for a few hundred young men with NFL dreams. Welling plays Brian Drew, the Browns quarterback who becomes concerned for his job when the team considers drafting a new QB (Josh Pence). In addition to Costner, Welling, and Pence, the movie also stars Jennifer Garner (The Odd Life of Timothy Green), Denis Leary (The Amazing Spider-Man), Chadwick Boseman (42), Terry Crews (The Single Moms Club), Sean Combs (Muppets Most Wanted), Rosanna Arquette (Silverado), Chi McBride (I, Robot), Kevin Dunn (Transformers), Sam Elliot (Hulk), Academy Award-nominee Frank Langella (Superman Returns), and Academy Award-winner Ellen Burnstyn (Requiem for a Dream).

I recently had the absolute pleasure of speaking with Tom Welling about his work on Draft Day, as well the legacy of Smallville. The accomplished actor discussed his new film, football, the script, getting the NFL’s approval, what he liked about his character, if he took any inspiration from Peyton Manning or other professional quarterbacks, appearing in a sports movie with Kevin Costner, what he learned from director Ivan Reitman, his favorite sports film, Smallville, forever being associated with that iconic character, and if he and Costner talked about Man of Steel
