BEGIN SLIDESHOW The Batman: John Turturro talks playing Carmine Falcone While we wait for The Batman to re-commence production, actor John Turturro recently sat down with The Inquirer and revealed a little bit about his role as Gotham City mob boss Carmine Falcone. “I’m playing the bad guy,” he said. “I loved Batman growing up, but I’m really a Zorro fan [Laughs].

‘The Batman’ Cast Continues to Grow by Adding John Turturro as Carmine Falcone

Just how many characters is The Batman going to have? Answer: a lot. Matt Reeves is currently gathering his players together to bring a new take on the Caped Crusader to life, and the latest came sort of out of left-field: John Turturro will play mob boss Carmine Falcone. The fact that Falcone is in the film along with multiple villains gives weight to rumors that Reeves is looking to The Long Halloween for inspiration, as the Falcone crime family has a major part in that comic. ? I said… #...

‘Life of the Party’ Review: Melissa McCarthy Leads an Uninspired Comedy

Over the last decade, Melissa McCarthy has helped boost a handful of comedies with her fierce comic charm and timing. Spy, The Heat, Bridesmaids, and the Ghostbusters remake (which wasn’t perfect, but was still pretty damn funny) all were elevated by her ability to play someone who’s wild and outlandish while managing to feel slightly rooted in reality. Her immense talent in these films makes it all the more puzzling that the three films she’s co-written and produced, including the new comedy L...
