Is Zac Efron's "Panini Beard" In Beach Bum Real?

It's not unusual for actors in Hollywood to undergo physical transformations to play a character. Bradley Cooper hired a vocal coach and got daily spray tans to become A Star Is Born lead Jackson Maine. Christian Bale shaved his head and gained 40 pounds to play Dick Cheney in Vice, 15 years after losing more than 60 for his role in The Machinist. Zac Efron is the latest to join the list with his most recent movie makeover — not for his too-sexy Ted Bundy, but for his panini beard in Beach Bum....

Q&A: Waiting for the final Mueller report and what happens next

By CHAD DAY and ERIC TUCKER WASHINGTON  — America is waiting for special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. But anyone looking for a grand narrative on President Donald Trump, Russian election interference and all the juicy details uncovered over the past 22 months could end up disappointed. The exact timing of Mueller’s endgame is unclear. Attorney General William Barr, who oversees the investigation, has said he wants to release as much information as he can about the inquiry into possible coord...

Matt Taibbi finally makes sense of the Pentagon's trillions in off-books "budgetary irregularities"

The finances of the US armed forces have been in a state of near-continuous audit for decades and despite spending billions of dollars and thousands of person-years trying to make sense of what the military spends, we're no closer to an answer, and no one disputes that there are trillions of dollars' worth of unaccountable transactions (but importantly, not trillions of dollars in spending) that make it impossible to figure out whether and when and how the Pentagon is being ripped off, or wasti...

You Can Now Watch the Deleted ‘Vice’ Musical Number

Adam McKay‘s Vice is a very off-the-wall biopic of Dick Cheney, but there was one moment apparently too wacky to include: a musical number. The number comes early in the film, where Christian Bale‘s Cheney is learning the ins and outs of politics from Steve Carell‘s Donald Rumsfeld. McKay talked about the scene previously, and verified it would be included on the Blu-ray release. Now, as the Blu-ray and digital release approaches, the scene is finally available for all to see.

Oscars 2019: Before you bet on the Academy Awards, you might want to read this

Here are my expert Oscar predictions. And my “expert” advice is: Don’t bet on anything this year! At least not in the Best Picture race. Yes, it’s been hard to predict that winner since the academy expanded the nomination count and introduced a preferential balloting system for the category about 10 years ago. But other factors make this one the biggest free-for-all Best Picture race of the decade. For one thing, all of the major Hollywood guilds have given their highest honors to different film...

Devourer of Planets: Dissecting the Nuance-Free Yet Brilliant Filmmaking of Adam McKay’s ‘Vice’

Vice bides its time, at least at first. It opens with a brief, Paul Greengrass-style glimpse of the Situation Room on 9/11. Accompanying this cinéma vérité are snippets of all the war and torture that would follow; Adam McKay, now on a roll after The Big Short , is as much a documentarian or video essayist as he is a fiction filmmaker, setting the stage for events that we, the public, are all too familiar with. However, the film’s opening credits don’t arrive until 12 minutes later. In the ...
