Celebrating John C. Reilly's Best Movie Roles

Mark Harrison Jan 11, 2019

We look at the eclectic career of one of Hollywood's most beloved character actors, John C. Reilly.

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

As an actor, John C. Reilly is exceptionally difficult to pin down. The Academy Award-nominated actor has worked with filmmakers ranging from Paul Thomas Anderson to Judd Apatow. Currently in awards contention again for his turn as Oliver Hardy in Stan & Ollie, he’s always been brilliant at both comedic and dramatic roles.

Going at least as far back as Will Ferrell and Jack Black’s "A Comedian At The Oscars" number at the 2007 Academy Awards, Reilly’s formidable range has long been celebrated. How do we know that real actors can do both comedy and drama? John C. Reilly, that’s how. After all, he “chose to be in both Boogie and Talladega Nights!”

In addition to Stan & Ollie, you can

Review: Tenacious D In Post-apocalypto, The Disappointing Animated Adventure Of Jack Black and Kyle Gass' Rock Band

Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny, the first and so far only film adventure of Jack Black and Kyle Gass’ rock band, is an underrated movie and a heartfelt tribute to rock 'n' roll that fulfills its purpose of making you laugh, while also delivering a very memorable soundtrack that has some of the band’s best songs. That initial sequence told through the song "Kickapoo", about the childhood of the rocker black sheep of a religious family, is perfect to exemplify the worth of Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny as a comical "rock opera", even with cameos by Meat Loaf and Ronnie James Dio himself. Almost 12 years after the premiere of Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny,...

Elton John Biopic Rocketman Is All Sex, Drugs and Rock N Roll

Elton John Biopic Rocketman Is All Sex, Drugs and Rock N Roll
Matthew Vaughn, who is co-producing the upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman alongside Paramount Pictures, has described the movie as "the first R-rated musical," including "drugs, sex, [and] rock'n'roll." Matthew Vaughn's production company Marv Studios will have a big hand in the upcoming biopic, and given a number of their previous movies such as Kingsman, it's understandable that this movie will be raunchy.

Vaughn's description of Rocketman being the "first R-rated musical" isn't entirely true, unfortunately. There have already been a number of R-rated musicals over the years, including serious ones like Sweeney Todd and Purple Rain, along with comedies like Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny and The Blues Brothers. Regardless, Vaughn's message comes across clear that Rocketman will be like no other musical we've seen before. While it won't technically be the first R-rated musical, it will most likely be the first of its kind.

Rocketman is set to star Taron Egerton,

Jack Black Says There's a New Tenacious D Movie Sequel in Development

Jack Black and Kyle Gass' 2006 movie Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny was a fun and ridiculous movie that seemed like a one and done kind of thing. It was a product of its time when the actual band Tenacious D was at their peak of popularity. Also, the movie completely bombed at the box office and only made $13.9 million on a budget of $20 million. You'd think that fact alone would guarantee that a sequel would never be made.

But, according to Jack Black, there's a sequel in development and it will be coming out in October. The news comes from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and Black told them:

“I don’t know where you’ll be able to see it, but we have decided that it’s happening and it’s coming out.”

There are absolutely no other details on the film project or any info on the story,

‘Fight Club’: Meat Loaf Reveals How He Helped David Fincher Pick Key Takes During the Directing Process
Meat Loaf has come a long way since his acting debut in the 1975 classic “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” He’s appeared in countless films and television shows including “The 51st State,” “Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny,” “Monk,” “Glee,” and “House, M.D,” among others. He’s also a Grammy Award winner and has sold more than 80 million records worldwide – but don’t call him a musician (more on that later).

Speaking with The A.V. Club, Meat Loaf revealed that “Fight Club” was one of his favorite movies that he’s been a part of because David Fincher let him take part in the directing process.

The actor portrayed Robert “Bob” Paulson, a former body builder who due to his excessive use of steroids got testicular cancer, and at times helped the director pick key takes.

5 Disappointing Movies That Deserve a Second Chance

5 Disappointing Movies That Deserve a Second Chance
There are more than a handful of sequels and franchise movies that came out amongst tons of hype only to fail or disappoint fans that waited far too long to finally see them. Sometimes, its this anticipation that makes a movie seem less than its sum. We, as lovers of pop culture, have spent far too much time cultivated our own ideas about them. In many instances we have years, even decades, to build the movie for ourself inside our brain. So, of course, more often than not...There's going to be a disconnect. We never return to these movies again. Our tainted memories remain firmly in place. But sometimes, its these bloated expectations that devour us, killing any enjoyment or fun we might otherwise have with any given installment of the latest blockbuster. Sometimes, we just take these things too seriously. And a perfectly decent movie gets lost in that 'expectation translation'.

Ben Stiller's professional onscreen career is officially turning 30 this year — that's roughly 412 in comedian years. In a business where funny people tend to quickly exhaust their limited charm and sink from telling jokes to becoming a punchline, the restless and versatile Stiller has managed to sustain one of the most consistent comic careers this side of Bob Hope.

Movie Review – Goosebumps (2015)

Goosebumps, 2015.

Directed by Rob Letterman.

Starring Jack Black, Dylan Minnette, Odeya Rush, Amy Ryan, Jillian Bell and Ryan Lee

Synopsis:

A teenager teams up with the daughter of young adult horror author R.L. Stine after the writer’s imaginary demons are set free on the town of Greendale, Maryland.

2015/2016 seems like such an odd time to adapt the best-selling book series that really had its heyday 20 years ago. Like The Tom Green Show or Jackass, R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps was a product of its time; horror stories written for children while shows like Tales From the Crypt entertained adults. As such, adapting Goosebumps for the big screen in the 21st Century was never going to be an easy task. The earliest attempt can be traced back to the late-1990s – when the book series was at its most popular – with Tim Burton possibly directing. Obviously, that movie never materialised either,

HBO Orders Tim Robbins And Jack Black To The Brink

Having commissioned the pilot episode of The Brink – a half-hour dark political comedy – last year, HBO has now ordered the show to series, with Tim Robbins and Jack Black heading the cast.

The show centres around the main players caught in a geo-political crisis. Tim Robbins plays the Us Secretary of State, Walter Hollander, who has little patience for war-mongers, while Jack Black plays Alex Coppins – a Foreign Service Officer dealing with the crisis in the field. A third main role – that of a Navy fighter pilot – has yet to be cast, although the wider cast list includes Aasif Mandvi and Meera Syal. The pilot was written by brothers Roberto and Kim Benabib – Roberto having previously worked on Ally McBeal and Weeds. Both will also serve as executive producers, alongside stars Black and Robbins, Jerry Weintraub (Behind The Candelabra) and Jay Roach (The Austin Powers franchise, The Campaign), who also directed the pilot.

Jack Black and Tim Robbins to Star in Jay Roach’s HBO Comedy Pilot The Brink

Jack Black and Tim Robbins are heading to television. THR reports that the duo will lead a half-hour dark comedy pilot for HBO called The Brink, which is being produced by Meet the Parents and Austin Powers director Jay Roach. The series focuses on “a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men,” with Robbins playing the U.S. Secretary of State and Black playing a foreign service officer who is reluctantly caught on the ground. The third role of a Navy fighter pilot has yet to be cast. Roach has a history with HBO as of late on the more dramatic side of things, as he directed the impressive political features Recount and Game Change.
