Meet the 5 Young Stars of the N.W.A. Biopic ‘Straight Outta Compton

By | Featured, Music, News | No Comments

As far as real-life stories go, the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton has some of the most uncanny casting we’ve ever seen. And of course it helps that the movie’s quintet includes the son of one of the iconic rappers they play.

“I was sitting in the kitchen watching Sports Center and he comes in and tells me he wants me to play him in a movie,” O’Shea Jackson Jr. told us about the moment his father, O’Shea Jackson (a.k.a. Ice Cube), first approached him about making his acting debut. “He got me a coach and for about two years I was working on the role…. I’ve heard these stories my whole life, so to reenact them — it’s pretty surreal.” (Watch our interview with the cast above.) HustleTV

Yahoo Movies was on the film’s Santa Monica set last fall to meet the five young stars playing the founding members of the seminal gangsta rap group whose hard-edged lyrics confronted police brutality and other social issues. In addition to Jackson Jr., the drama features Corey Hawkins (Non-Stop) as Dr. Dre, Jason Mitchell (Contraband) as Eazy-E, Neil Brown Jr. (Fast & Furious) as DJ Yella, and Aldis Hodge (A Good Day to Die Hard) as MC Ren.

The young cast members posed with the four surviving members of N.W.A. (Eazy-E died of AIDS in 1995) on the day we hit the set, so you can get a full view of the striking resemblances:

“I was an N.W.A. fan, and it’s crazy because my great-grandmother was talking about it, and she’s 96-years old,” said Hawkins. “I don’t know if she’s a fan, but she definitely remembered the music and how much it meant to the culture at the time.”

Straight Outta Compton opens in theaters on Aug. 14. Watch Ice Cube and O’Shea Jackson Jr. talk about keeping it in the family: HustleTV

*As any successful executive in entertainment will tell you, “when you have the streets connected and endorsing your product, your chances for success increase immeasurably.”
That is exactly what is happening with the “new man on the streets” simply known as “DJ Hustle .”
Born and raised in Watts, California … DJ Hustle and his new “HustleTV” have quietly become one of the hottest platforms for entertainers and sports figures to get their real, uncut
interviews aired to the youthful viewers and to Hip Hop audiences worldwide.

Starting off as a DJ performing at major venues across the country, DJ Hustle decided to branch out and formed “Hustle TV” in 2006 with the show being aired via the Time Warner Cable system.
Within a one year time period, “Hustle TV” had caught on with the Hip Hop audience nationwide, while DJ Hustle’s rapport with the various Rap music stars and sports figures enabled him to secure the “street level, uncut interviews” the artist themselves preferred and that the viewers so desperately wanted to see.
As DJ Hustle’s grind in the streets took his platform to new heights, the success of Hustle TV motivated him to reach even further and he started to lay the foundation for building a “street edged” one hour cable TV show for Hustle TV that would focus on “controversial street figures and business people.” HustleTV

On Reports That Dwyane Wade Is In Talks To Join LeBron James And The Cavs

By | Sports | No Comments

HustleTV  In Sports News …  NBA free agency in the year 2016. It’s a bigger deal than the NBA Finals the month before (even a seven-game epic) and it’s part of why old, cantankerous sportswriters are so shocked by what millennial basketball fans care about. The inter-league player movement and the possibility of future greatness is what stokes the embers of an NBA fan’s heart these days, just not the actual greatness, because only one team gets to bask in that. Fans are too concerned with what their team might do the coming summer than how they fare in May.

On July 1, everyone has a shot at the 2017 title. Now, on July 5, only one team seems to have a shot, at least according to the hyper-reactive NBA Twitter hivemind. And general managers aren’t immune to going on tilt after a big signing, either. So, it’s not inconceivable the Cavs are looking at ways to sign Dwyane Wade in free agency.

Not inconceivable, but highly improbable. Enough so that if you hear some — probably intoxicated — fan in a Cavs jersey over the next two days loudly proclaiming a counter-move involving Dwyane Wade after Kevin Durant’s stunning free agency decision, know that they’re just blowing off steam and don’t really know what they’re talking about.

Z FOR ZACHARIAH DARES TO NOT PLAY BY THE BOOK

By | Featured | No Comments

There’s a strain of science fiction writing that evokes a chilly kind of coziness, usually by introducing us to individuals or small groups of people who have found their way to the country in the hope of escaping encroaching doom. John Wyndham’s bleak, beautiful 1951 novel The Day of the Triffids is one example; Robert C. O’Brien’s tense, thoughtful 1974 young-adult thriller Z for Zachariah is another. In both books, the countryside offers a safe cocoon far from the menace of the city. The wolf — or the nuclear radiation, or the menacing ambulatory plant form — may be at the door, but inside, survivors get to experience the D.I.Y. joys of getting rusty old generators up and running, or hustling up surprisingly satisfying meals out of canned goods scrounged from the cupboards of abandoned dwellings. These stories offer a fantasy of turning back the clock and returning to a simpler way of living, simply because there’s no other choice. They’re like dark cottages with a beckoning light shining inside.
Craig Zobel’s adaptation of Z for Zachariah veers so drastically from the source material that people who love the book may feel betrayed. In the novel, Ann, a 15-year-old farm girl whose valley has been miraculously spared from a devastating nuclear war, learns that she isn’t, as she had sometimes thought, the last living person on the planet: A stranger trundles into her deserted world, and if he initially offers the comforts of human companionship, he also brings greed and selfishness into Ann’s little Eden.

If you think of Z for Zachariah as an inversion of the Adam and Eve story — this time, it’s not a woman who causes the downfall — then the changes that Zobel and screenwriter Nissar Modi have made don’t seem so drastic thematically, even though they depart radically in terms of plot. For one thing, they invent a new character, which changes the dynamic profoundly. Yet the film works on its own terms, capturing, at least, the mournful vibe of O’Brien’s book. HustleTV

What’s more, Zobel’s revision opens up plenty of space for the three actors who inhabit this circumscribed little world, all of whom are terrific. Ann (Margot Robbie, looking believably farm-fresh and nothing at all like the scene-stealing vixen she played in The Wolf of Wall Street) lives alone on her family’s farm, a speckled dog named Faro her only companion. She wraps herself in protective gear and makes occasional trips into an abandoned village, chiefly to pick up books from the ghost-town library; there’s also a general store nearby, which she regularly raids for supplies.

One day she and Faro spot a cart by the side of the road. It belongs to Loomis (the always extraordinary Chiwetel Ejiofor), a scientist who has left the bunker that saved his life — he’s able to explore the world with the help of a one-of-a-kind radiation-proof suit, and his search for a sustainable pocket of civilization has led him right into Ann’s world.

Ann is at first wary of Loomis, but later becomes curious about him in all ways, including sexually. Loomis is thinking along the same lines, but he’s more a man of science than religion, and Ann’s unwavering faith makes him nervous. In a small but pivotal scene, he scans the titles on the household bookshelf: There are works by Billy Graham and a manual called Family-Friendly Farming, as well as a religious book for children, A Is for Adam. If Adam was the first man, Zachariah, trailing at the end of the alphabet, must surely be the last. Is Loomis the last man? As it turns out, no: A dirty, exhausted figure soon emerges from the ravaged landscape. Caleb (Chris Pine, stalwart and sensitive) has eyes that are even bluer than Ann’s, and he’s had the same rural, religious upbringing. He’s a better match for Ann, and Loomis knows it. (Zobel employs a quick, sly joke to also address the fact that Caleb, unlike Loomis, is white.)

From here, the story might have evolved into a ho-hum exploration of romantic and sexual jealousy, but Zobel and his trio of performers dig into something murkier and more primal. This is Zobel’s fourth fiction feature, and although he earned a great deal of acclaim for his 2012 Compliance — about a fast-food restaurant manager who follows company protocol too closely, with disastrous consequences — Z for Zachariah is a much more accomplished and nuanced picture.

Zobel and cinematographer Tim Orr show us both the seductive comforts and the menace of this strange new world: A scene in which Ann and Loomis share a special homemade dinner, complete with purloined wine from the abandoned store, is lit with a romantic, reassuring glow. Later scenes, in which Caleb and Loomis eye each other like jealous animals, suggest that the tendency toward male aggression can never be fully tamed, even when it comes down to the last two men on Earth. Still, both Loomis and Caleb are more complex than you’d think — there’s tenderness beneath Loomis’ posturing, especially. And Zobel fearlessly goes for a genuinely melancholy ending. Forget the apocalypse; person-to-person human relations will always be the thing that hangs us up.

But Z for Zachariah may be most interesting for its refusal to scoff at spiritual faith. Loomis may glance dubiously at those book titles, but Ann, her forthright, gentle manner balanced by an almost feral determination to survive, is the heart of the movie. Whether or not we share her specific belief in an all-knowing, benevolent God is beside the point: Somehow, she’s still here on the planet, and something, even if it’s just a force deep within herself, has kept her there.
Right-wing fundamentalist religious nuts have, understandably, made many of us wary of any common notion of “faith.” In contemporary culture, to admit that you believe in God, or a God, is to risk being branded a hillbilly, an enemy of free thought. It’s much cooler to call yourself an atheist, as a way of advertising yourself as a person who can’t be hoodwinked. But Z for Zachariah — without being militantly pro-religion in any sense — leaves the door open to the idea of faith as a means of sustenance. In that sense, it’s a daring picture. At the very least, it suggests you’re really sunk if you consider yourself superior to wonder.

Rita Ora on A$AP Rocky Diss: ‘I Don’t Actually Give a S—‘

By | Featured | No Comments

Rita Ora “doesn’t give a shit” about that A$AP Rocky diss, which described a sexual encounter in offensive detail with Ora on his At.Long.Last.A$AP track “Better Things.”

The 24-year-old British pop star told Hot 97 that she loves Rocky’s music but the issue to her is more about what people think they can get away with saying about women.

A$AP Rocky Admits Rita Ora Diss Was ‘Tasteless’

“I’m not looking at it like ‘you’re upsetting me’ because I don’t actually give a shit,” she said. “I think about it and I don’t want people to think it’s OK to speak about women like that. That’s it.”

Ora continued, “I don’t care what you say about me. I don’t give a flying fuck. That’s just how it is, but you know got to keep it moving. I’m very happy with what I do and I’m proud of who I am and what I represent.”

In the track, which was released in May, A$AP rapped, “I swear that bitch Rita Ora got a big mouth/ Next time I see her might curse the bitch out/ Kicked the bitch out once ’cause she bitched out, spit my kids out/ Jizzed up all in her mouth and made the bitch bounce.”

By | Featured | No Comments

August 21–28 cover we get to see brand spankin’ new images from the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens AND find out more about Adam Driver’s villain character, Kylo Ren (wow, The Force AwaKENs?—stay woke). This ain’t the Adam Driver we know from Girls. Peep the badass cover below:

J.J. Abrams told EW, “The lightsaber is something that he built himself and is as dangerous and as fierce and as ragged as the character.” Dang, Kylo Ren sounds like a crafty motherfucker. Abrams also said the film will explain the origin of the mask, and it sounds like there will be enough nods to the original trilogy for the fans. Screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan (who also worked on The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi) also dished, “There’s never been a character quite like the one that Adam plays. I think you’re going to see something that’s brand new to the saga […] He’s full of emotion.”

True Facts About Christopher Walken

By | Featured | No Comments

With an exceptional career in the film industry, Christopher Walken is a walking legend with his distinctive hair, voice and phenomenal acting skills.

Walken’s incredible performances in movies like “The Deer Hunter”, “Pulp Fiction”, “Catch Me if You Can”, “Sleepy Hollow” and several other screenplays have won the respect and claim that any actor would itch to possess.

Starring alongside award winning actors like Al Pacino, Uma Thurman, Robert De Niro and many more, Walken’s addition to the film industry has always given upcoming stars an inspiring push to achieve ‘dead stopping’ roles.

His deep voice and that electrifying hairdo have so much to do with the kind of profile he carries, especially because the actor absolutely captivates the audience with his cool demeanor. His diversity in the range of characters he’s played in the past shows just how versatile the actor can be.

Right from playing the bad guy in movies to saving the moment with his intellectual feel and appeal on screen, Walken has always surprised the audience with performances that can shake any usual standards of theatrics.

The star actor has always led a personalized life, keeping professional and private matters separate. You might read his entire biography, but there will still be things that you probably didn’t know or missed out on:

This is quite expected since the actor has exceptional taste in literature and as well as his great interest in politics.

He did provide the foreword to KISS: Guide to Cat Share, which was originally a book authorized by Steve Duno. Walken’s foreword for this book is not a surprise since he’s a very big cat lover.

In many of his interviews he expressed fascination and love for cats.

Unfortunately, his movie career didn’t allow him to peruse a career in writing even though his interests in the field of arts and literature have always intrigued people, especially because of his highly perceptive mind and observant nature.

This famous actor’s cameo in Madonna’s music video can definitely surprise quite a few hardcore Madonna fans. However, if you look carefully inside Madonna’s music video for song “Bad Girl” from 1993, you can spot the actor playing a guardian angel.

Such a minor detail is often scratched off when talking about Walken’s onscreen appearances, but those few minutes of fame were a noteworthy beginning.

f you happen to come across this video, make sure you watch it to catch a glimpse of a very young Christopher Walken beside the dynamite Madonna.

hustletv-christopher-walken-8

Since 1975 Christopher Walken never took a break from acting. He is one of few actors in Hollywood that has consistent acting career with at least one movie role each year.

On average, he’s been making four movies per year and his most productive year so far was 2002 when he appeared in six movies.

His most successful year would definitely have to be 1978 when he won the Oscar for the Best Actor in a Supporting Role for the movie “The Deer Hunter”.

He still doesn’t show signs that he will retire any time soon. With three movies coming up this year and three scheduled for 2016, we will be seeing Mr. Walken on a silver screen for many years to come.
