Seann William Scott's 5 Favorite Movies Probably Aren't Ones You Would Guess

Seann Williams Scott (aka Stifler from American Pie, aka Doug Glatt from Goon) is a cinephile. You might not’ve guessed that, considering his acting choices haven’t been, shall we say, high caliber. Nonetheless, he loves movies, so picking his top five choices is as difficult as picking your favorite food — depending on his mood, the order and selection changes. Recently, he revealed his favorite films with this stipulation, but even then, they seemed a bit out-of-the-ordinary for the Stifmeister. During a Reddit Ama on Wednesday, Scott was asked to name his top five favorite films. At the time, he said these were at the top of his head at the time of the question: 1. The Inheritance, directed by Per Fly 2. Talk to Her, directed by Pedro Almodóvar 3. Betty Blue, directed by Jean-Jacques Beineix 4. Open Hearts, Susanne Bier 5. Chopper, Andrew Dominik Who ...

A Second Chance review: Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's drama

A Second Chance review: Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's drama
Director: Susanne Bier; Screenwriter: Anders Thomas Jensen; Starring: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Ulrich Thomsen, Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Maria Bonnevie; Running time: 102 mins; Certificate: 15

The kitchen sink bubbles over with a soapy lather in this Danish yarn which benefits greatly from the shadowy lure of Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. He lends no small amount of dignity to a cop who makes some very questionable decisions that threaten his career and his family life while director Susanne Bier, who has carved a niche in melodrama with films like Open Hearts, Brothers and In a Better World, makes up for some of her sins, here, with a typically cool aesthetic.

Interesting sociological questions aren't so much raised as rooted out from a massively contrived opening act when police detective Andreas (Coster-Waldau) responds to a domestic disturbance at the flat of a known drug addict and ex-con Tristan (Nikolaj Lie Kaas). This bona fide

Serena review: Is Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper reunion any good?

Serena review: Is Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper reunion any good?
Director: Susanne Bier; Screenwriter: Christopher Kyle; Starring: Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Toby Jones, Rhys Ifans, Sean Harris; Running time: 110 mins; Certificate: 15

After sharing the screen in American Hustle and more substantially in Silver Linings Playbook, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence have a rapport that pays dividends in a sepia-hued adaptation of Ron Rash's novel Serena. Without their combined starriness, this period love story would sink into a slushy bog.

Danish director Susanne Bier is behind the camera and she's certainly earned her right to marshal a big Hollywood production with credits that include the original Brothers (remade with Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire) and her 2002 Dogme film Open Hearts. She usually handles high emotion with a light touch, and does so once again here (for the most part) against the backdrop of the Great Smoky Mountains in North Carolina.

Mist gets in the eyes of George Pemberton (Cooper), the

What Is The Kind Campaign? Aaron Paul Plugs Wife'.s Charity During Emmys Acceptance Speech

While accepting the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama series at the 2014 Emmys, Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul supported his wife’s efforts for the anti-bullying charity The Kind Campaign.

Aaron Paul Plugs Wife 'Kind Campaign'

Tiff Trailer: Susanne Bier's 'A Second Chance' Starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

  • The Playlist
A Susanne Bier movie is coming to Toronto, and sorry, Jennifer Lawrence fans, it's not "Serena." That Depression-era drama is still M.I.A., and Bier has since gone to make two more films, including this one, "A Second Chance." Led by "Game of Thrones" star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, with a script from Anders Thomas Jensen (previous Bier efforts "Open Hearts," "After The Wedding," "In A Better World," "Love Is All You Need"), this sounds like Bier returning to the well of her earlier dramas, and a distinct step away from her last effort, the sunny rom-com "Love Is All You Need." Here's the official synopsis:  Detectives and best friends Andreas and Simon lead vastly different lives; Andreas has settled down with his beautiful wife and son; while Simon, recently divorced, spends most of his waking hours getting drunk at the local strip club. But all that changes when the two of them.

Julianne Hough Looks Just Like Wilma Flintstone With Her Modern Take on Stone Age Attire

Julianne Hough Looks Just Like Wilma Flintstone With Her Modern Take on Stone Age Attire
We've revisited the '60s, the '70s and the '80s...but is the Stone Age back in fashion for 2014? Julianne Hough reminded us of our favorite prehistoric cartoon character mom, Wilma Flintstone, at the Open Hearts Foundation Gala in Los Angeles as she walked the red carpet wearing an asymmetrical ivory-colored top, matching pencil skirt and stilettos. Her lack of accessories only emphasized the "bare" factor of this look. While we're all about understated elegance, this outfit lacked creativity and could have benefitted from a colorful clutch, chandelier earrings or a statement necklace (even Wilma was never to be seen with a bare neck and always rocked her signature white...

Glen Campbell Likely Won't Perform Again, Wife Says

  • PEOPLE.com
More than three years into his battle with Alzheimer's, Glen Campbell can no longer do what's been second nature for him for most of his life - perform. When asked if the country great would ever play for an audience again, his wife, Kim Woolen, 55, says it's unlikely. "He can't even tune a guitar now. If I tune one and hand it to him he can still play, [but] not like he used to," Woolen told People at the Open Hearts Foundation's 4th Annual Gala in Malibu on Saturday. However, he can still "play a couple licks here and there, and he finds joy in that.

Cate Blanchett Finds The Dig

Cate Blanchett Finds The Dig
There may be few chances for rousing action set pieces where she races the Nazis to ancient treasures, but Cate Blanchett is looking for archaeological thrills of a different kind. According to Screen International, the Blue Jasmine Oscar winner is in talks to star in The Dig.Susanne Bier, the Danish director behind In A Better World and Open Hearts, is set to make the film, which will dramatize one of the UK’s most famous archaeological finds, the Sutton Hoo burial grounds. Byzantium writer Moira Buffini has knocked the dirt from John Preston’s eponymous novel, which uncovered the people behind the 1930s excavation of the Sutton Hoo site.Among the artefacts found in the site were a ship burial site and a wealth of Anglo-Saxon objects. The findings from the 6th- and early 7th-century tomb were key to understanding the people of that dim and distant time and

Susanne Bier’s A Second Chance, With Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gets A First Image And Full Plot Synopsis

Though her Depression-era drama Serena, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, is still sitting on a shelf somewhere, director Susanne Bier is still moving from project to project. She was previously attached to direct Love Is All You Need but eventually dropped. Now, she’s settled on A Second Chance, an intense drama starring Game of ThronesNikolaj Coster-Waldau (pictured above in the first image from the film). Though we already knew that the film would address the moral turpitude faced by those who have endured terrible tragedies, a new plot synopsis has shed some light on what we can expect.

Coster-Waldau, who was nominated for a Critics’ Choice Award for his performance as Jaime Lannister on HBO’s Game of Thrones, has more than proven that he has dramatic depth to spare, so I’m very excited to see what he does as the star of A Second Chance.

First Image & Official Synopsis For Susanne Bier's 'A Second Chance' Starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

  • The Playlist
While we'll keeping asking, "Where's 'Serena' starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence?" until our throats are dry, director Susanne Bier keeps powering on to new movies. Last year, she dropped the romance "Love Is All You Need," and now she's already at work on her next film. Production has started on "A Second Chance," led by "Game of Thrones" star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and the first image from the movie has landed. The script comes from Bier's longtime collaborator Anders Thomas Jensen ("Open Hearts," "After The Wedding," "In A Better World," "Love Is All You Need"), and it sounds like a return to the gritty dramas that first brought her to the attention of the international scene. The official synopsis is below:  Detectives and best friends Andreas and Simon lead vastly different lives; Andreas has settled down with his beautiful wife and son; while Simon, recently divorced, spends most

Mads Mikkelsen Talks 'The Hunt' (Exclusive Video)

Mads Mikkelsen Talks 'The Hunt' (Exclusive Video)
Oscar-nominated "The Hunt" star Mads Mikkelsen combines a rare set of skills: the athleticism of a trained dancer, acrobat and gymnast and the sensitivity of a theater actor. After graduating from drama school in Denmark at age 30 he starred in fellow Dogma believer Nicolas Winding Refn's "Pusher" films, and later in the almost silent "Valhalla Rising" (he'd like to work with the director again). He broke out in two Susanne Bier films, "Open Hearts" and "After the Wedding," which earned an Academy Award nomination. He went on to play a Bond villain in "Casino Royale," and survived fighting green-screen scorpions in "Clash of the Titans," the mark of a true star. He can be dangerous and violent, deranged and funny, mighty warrior or tender lover. He likes to strip away extra layers to the lean meat of a performance. After nine years as a dancer, "emotional stuff gets in my body somehow,

Mads Mikkelsen on Lars von Trier and Hannibal Lecter

He made his name in Pusher and Open Hearts and went on to be a Bond baddie. But he is still waiting to work with Lars von Trier – and still trying to keep things radical

Mads Mikkelsen, as handsome as you like, lowers himself into a seat, rolls a cigarette and stares handsomely out over the sea. Did I mention he was handsome? Not only is he wearing the kind of shiny suit that only the handsomest among us can get away with, he's also sporting a radioactive tan that sets off his handsomely glittering eyes. The tan, he says, is because he's just come back from shooting a western in South Africa, not, I'm relieved to discover, the latest manifestation of the World Conspiracy of Handsomeness.

Oh well. It's safe to say that the way Mikkelsen, 48, looks has not hurt him in his quest to become a well-known and successful actor.

Interview: Mads Mikkelsen On 'Hannibal' Season 2, 'The Salvation' And The Scandinavian Filmmaking Rennaissance

  • The Playlist
A star for many years in his native Denmark prior to crossing over with the villain role in the first relaunched Bond movie, “Casino Royale,” Mads Mikkelsen, attending the Marrakech Film Festival as part of the Tribute to Scandinavian Cinema, has for quite some time now been one of our very favorite working actors. From early collaborations with Nicolas Winding Refn (the ‘Pusher’ Trilogy, “Valhalla Rising”) and Susanne Bier ("After The Wedding," "Open Hearts") right through to supporting roles in Hollywood fare (“The Three Musketeers,” “Clash of the Titans”), Mikkelsen is often the best thing in his movies, even if he’s only in them briefly. But of course these last couple of years have kicked it up a notch further, with Mikkelsen taking two very different roles (almost mirror images, in fact), one of which broadens his appeal by bringing him weekly into U.S. living rooms as a guilty,
