A documentary reveals Bettie Page’s secrets

What ever happened to Bettie Page? After just seven years as a pinup star, Page ducked out of public view and was elusive for half a century. The mystery is solved—somewhat—in Bettie Page Reveals All, a feature documentary narrated by the Queen of Pinups herself and directed by Georgia State alum Mark Mori.

Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul loves us!!!!!

Life right now is kind of like a countdown to the premiere of the final season of "Breaking Bad" on August 11. But some Atlantans haven't had to wait that long for a glimpse of Aaron Paul (who plays the show's meth-addled but loveable Jesse Pinkman), who's been in town filming a movie about fast cars called "Need for Speed."

Q&A: Djimon Hounsou at the Atlanta screening of Guardians of the Galaxy

Arriving at Tuesday’s advance screening of Guardians of the Galaxy, the latest superhero summer popcorn movie from Marvel Studios, two-time Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou didn’t duck out for dinner with studio reps once the lights went down. Instead, Hounsou donned his 3D glasses, and settled into a seat with a large bottle of water and a bag of popcorn to watch the two-hour intergalactic comic book come to life. Hounsou is part of an ensemble cast that includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, The Walking Dead’s Michael Rooker, Lee Pace, John C. Reilly, and Glenn Close. Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel lend their voices to the flick, portraying mutant, mouthy raccoon Rocket, and Groot, a walking, talking tree with a severely limited vocabulary.

Uncle Ruckus The Movie?

If the financing comes through on his next acting project, former Agatha's: A Taste of Mystery actor and writer Gary Anthony Williams might just be flexing his improv skills again later this year. For three seasons now, the former "Malcolm in the Middle" actor has given voice to comic strip creator Aaron McGruder's outrageous Uncle Ruckus character on "The Boondocks," the popular Cartoon Network Adult Swim animated series.

Did Veronica Mars marry Piz?

Nine-year-old actress Kyla-Drew Simmons talks Hugh Jackman, Jason Segel

She may be but a wee thing, but she has big ambitions. Simmons grew up in Atlanta but moved to L.A. with her mom last summer to pursue her acting career—and it sounds like it was her idea (see “quadruple threat” aspirations below).

Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill set to star in film about Richard Jewell

Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill are teaming up once again, but this time they are trading their comedy chops for something more serious.

Dumb and Dumber To transforms Cabbagetown into … Rhode Island?

At some point, I suppose, it will stop being a surprise that movie folks ask Atlanta to stand in for so many other places. Odd enough that Woodruff Park was a facsimile of seventies-era NYC complete with overflowing garbage cans and yellow cabs for Anchorman 2. But today, while strolling around our neighborhood, my husband and I came across a crew hard at work constructing a faux Rhode Island streetscape on a long-vacant lot at the corner of Kirkwood Avenue and Pearl Street in Cabbagetown, about the most quintessentially Southern pocket of Atlanta you could hope for.

Q&A with Night of the Living Dead’s Judith O’Dea

Q: Here we are 45 years later and people are still clamoring to talk to you about this film, made for a reported $114,000. Does that ever make your jaw go slack?
