Ken Watanabe was the most popular and recognizable Japanese actor in the United States, and possibly the world, when he made "Letters from Iwo Jima." Hilary Swank was an Oscar winner and a major star as well. With the exception of Kathy Bates, the actors in this film are either unknown, like Paul Walter Hauser, or TV stars. While Sam Rockwell is somewhere in the middle, he's not really a bankable star.

Interestingly enough, Olivia Wilde was actually one of the original signatories of the letter announcing the Georgia film boycott. She apparently changed her mind to work with Eastwood.

neither Ken Watanabe nor Hilary Swank were A-list actors back in the 2000s. They are no A-list actors even now. and definitely not bankers. And Sam Rockwell is also an Oscar Winner and most freshly, an oscar-nominated actor for his role as George Bush. I think this is one of the most homogeneous casts Clint has ever had. Martin McDonough and Guillermo Del Toro didn't think about Frances McDormand and Sally Hawkins this way for sure. Some out of the box choices who shocked everyone in film industry.

I wonder if I'll come across the programme? Would a Yankees programme from May 17, 2014 be worth anything?

Would you believe it? I came across the programme today in another cleanup of papers and junk.

Brett Gardiner on the cover.

Worth any $$$$$$$?

This was OK. Good female cast but to me it was like, who could put on the most makeup? I think Cate Blanchett won by a powder puff. Follows the same lines as the previous Ocean's films only this time, it's a girl gang being brought together for a heist.

3/5.



This was a beautiful film from France of a young boy taken from an orphanage to live a woman and her husband. The boy strikes up a friendship with the local game poacher.

4/5.



This was amusing but not hysterically funny from Adam Sandler. Good film for rainy day.

3/5.



I enjoyed this but it's way too long at 2 hours and 12 minutes. Story of the two men (Former Texan Rangers) who tracked down Bonnie and Clyde back in the 1930's. Fascinating real footage at the end of the film showing how many people adored these murderers and how it still continues now with so called celebrities and the media willing to pay to get a story.

4/5.



Another feel good rainy day film. Hugh Grant plays an Oscar winning screenwriter who hasn't written anything decent in 15 years and is offered a job teaching a class at University. Grant's scenes with Alison Janney are the highlight through this film. Unfortunately there's only three of them.

3/5.



Al Pacino stars as Danny Collins, a one hit wonder singer from the 1970's, who receives a letter from John Lennon, 30 odd years after it was sent. Loosely based on a real story. Pacino plays the rich, sex and drugs rock star well. And the soundtrack is full of John Lennon songs.

4/5.

I guess this is a better destiny for the movie. A-List actors let the crowd down sometimes due to very high hopes they bring with themselves. (Leo Dicaperio as J.Edgar maybe?)
Remember Letters from Iwo Jima and Flags of our fathers? two of Clint's bests with no A-list actors, with totally unknown actors with the former one. But they are pure cinematic achievements. why? because of their amazing script and stories. Hillary Swank was never an A-list actress when Clint casted her as Maggie Fitzgerald in MDB. or, Forrest Whitaker in Bird. again, one of Clint's most appreciated movies.

Billy Ray, The Scriptwriter of Richard Jewell, tweeted this after Sam Rockwell joined the cast:

"VERY high hopes for this one. A great director and a great cast.
Stories this good are a privilege to write."

These are definitely some interesting choices, but for this type of film, I would have expected A-list actors to be part of the cast. I honestly wonder whether or not Clint's decision to film in Georgia may have made it difficult for him to get A-list movie stars to join due to the actor boycott that resulted from Georgia's abortion restrictions bill.

Actually, I don't think that would be the case. Because Olivia Wilde is also one of the frontrunners in these politically motivated movements in Hollywood and, she just couldn't be more delighted to join this project. (Seen her tweet?). and beside that, there are lots of other movies shooting in Georgia or scheduled to shoot there with enough A-listers. I guess, Eastwood has got what he wanted. We all know that Paul Walter Hauser was his first choice as Richard Jewell from the very beginning.

Honestly, I donít know Nina Arienda. She worked with Al Pacino in The Humbling.
Itís not the first time that Clint works with a Tony Award winner since he worked with John Lloyd Young in Jersey Boys.
I like the cast of Richard Jewell too. Itís interesting and daring too.
Thereís no real A-list actor but some well-known actors like Kathy Bates, Sam Rockwell and John Hamm.
Although Olivia Wilde is well-known too, sheís not as popular as Charlize Theron for instance.
This cast seems refreshing in Clintís filmography, in my opinion.
I liked the cast of The Mule too but it was more familiar than this one.

I actually saw Nina Arienda onstage in Venus in Fur a few years back. She made a strong impression in an oddball but absorbing play.

This is one of the oddest casts that Eastwood has worked with. Itís very eclectic. I like Nina. Iím a fan of ďBillionsĒ and ďGoliath,Ē and she had significant roles in both. If youíre interested in checking her out, but havenít seen ďGoliath,Ē Iíd skip Season 2.
