5 Best Vince Vaughn Movie Roles

Vincent Anthony “Vince” Vaughn was Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota on March 28, 1970, and after that the world got cooler and funnier.


We will highlight 5 (to us) of the funniest film roles of Vince Vaughn

5. The Lost World: Jurassic Park

Steven Spielberg spied Vince in “Swingers” and wanted to give him more exposure in the sequel to the monstrous hit, “Jurassic Park”. Vince seemed a bit out of his comedy element (Don’t get me started about the remake of ‘Psycho’), but he used this action thriller to make another mark to a different audience, and the “trailer over the cliff” segment is still just freaking awesome!

Incredible BTS Classic Movie photos (Star Wars, The Dark Knight, Ghostbusters and more)

With the advent of youtube and the saturation of information on DVDs and magazines about the making of films you would think we had seen it all. I think I may have found some mostly unseen treasures.

There was a time when behind the scenes photos were magical pictures of film creatives creating motion pictures that would thrill us on a very tight (almost no) budget. Seeing a miniature New York street set for a humongous Stay Puffed Marshmallow man to walk down, the Star Wars heroes (sans the SW regalia) setting around cutting it up in a studio break room or Godzilla with its interior actor shown drinking tea in-between takes.

The farther we move into the CGI age, the less we may see of these types of BTS shots, and the more they are discovered, we need to treasure them and share them with future generations.

So, if you remember movies like the original Tron, Goonies, the original Conan the Barbarian, the original Planet of the Apes, Pulp Fiction, etc, you’ll love the photos you’ll find at: http://cooldudestuff.com/2013/05/30-behind-the-scenes-movie-photos-youve-probably-never-seen/

All in the Family Trivia


We were saddened to learn that Jean Stapleton passed away. She had a varied career, but most of us will always remember her as the long-suffering Edith, the wife of the ever opinionated, Archie Bunker. Even though the show enraged some of the viewers because of Archie’s views, is also was an uncomfortable mirror of how many Americans felt about issues like racism, homosexuality, etc, and brought them out into the public arena for further discussion. The show still is relevant today.

Here are some trivia questions about a ground-breaking sitcom in which most of us were introduced to Jean Stapleton’s fantastic acting as Edith Bunker.

1. What film did Jean Stapleton turn down to play Edith Bunker?

A. Big Jake
B. Bedknobs and Broomsticks
C. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

‘Once Upon a Time’ Almost Had a Very Different ‘Swan’ in Storybrooke


ABC TV’s #1 Twisted, Fairy Tale Drama has cast a spell on TV audiences since it’s debut in 2011. We have learned that in the OUAT universe, Rumpelstiltskin could be himself, the Beast and a Crocodile all at the same time and not break a sweat. Even if you flow along with the wild plot twists and turns, you might be very surprised at an early decision that could have changed the show forever.

Noah Munck Mans Up in Nicky Deuce – Red Carpet Premiere and (Non Spoilery) Review



I had the extreme privilege of attending the Nicky Deuce premiere last night at the at the Arclight Theater:


Trivia Part One: This was not the first time Noah has used a New York, tough guy accent. He used it in his role in the 2007 film “Rainbow Tribe” playing Ryan.

Apart from the history of the site the event was held, it was so cool to see the amazing red carpet event for Nicky Deuce;

The Review (No Spoilers)

This movie was great. It’s a comedic mystery film about Nicholas Borelli growing up from a geeky, overly protected young man into the strong, adventurous Nicky Deuce. The story involves Nicolas visiting his mysterious Uncle Frankie (Steve Schirripa) and his Grandma Tutti (Rita Moreno) in Brooklyn, meeting the darling, Donna (Cristine Prosperi) and soon after becomes a part of mob-ish capers including a Sopranos mini reunion (of sorts) including Steve Schirripa, Michael Imperioli (The Doctor), Tony Sirico (Charlie Cement), Vincent Curatola (Paulie), and of course, James Gandolfini (Bobby Eggs). There are lots of great moments in this film, but the best to see Noah Munck growing beyond the Gibby in an ensemble we’ve been used to and now seeing a more mature Noah stepping into the role as star.

Trivia Part Two: You can get another mob-ish connection with Noah back in iCarly’s “iOpen a Restaurant” episode when Gibby gives an homage to the 1990 film Goodfellas in the Billy Boots and the restaurant fight scene.

The After Party

After the screening, there was a reception in the Arclight Cafe. It was so great to see many of the stars attending the premiere also chatting it up at the reception. There was also a raffle to benefit the Ryan Seacrest Foundation (Such a great guy and a great cause.). It was a great evening already, but then we spotted Andy Dick (fresh from his great run on Dancing With The Stars), and he was so cool to take some time for some pictures and chatting it up with fans. He is a very cool guy.
