Halyna Hutchins’ Husband Expresses Anger Toward Alec Baldwin For Not Accepting Responsibility

Matt Hutchins, the husband of the late cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, is speaking out against Alec Baldwin. As you all remember, tragedy struck on the set of Baldwin’s passion project ‘Rust‘ last October. Halyna was shot and killed by a prop gun, which was fired by Baldwin during rehearsals.

Baldwin has maintained he never actually pulled the trigger, so he’s not sure how the gun fired. You’ll remember two months after the fatal shooting, Baldwin gave a tearful interview to ABC News, in which he took no direct responsibility for Halyna’s death, most likely being directed by his lawyers.

Baldwin also told ABC News that Halyna Hutchins had asked him to point the prop gun just off-camera and toward her arm just before it fired.

Now her husband, Matt, is speaking out. He sat down for an interview with TODAY, and during the interview, he called out Baldwin.

The idea that the person holding the gun and causing it to discharge is not responsible is absurd to me. Watching him I just felt so angry. I was just so angry to see him talk about her death so publicly in such a detailed way and then to not accept any responsibility after having just described killing her.

The Hutchins family filed a lawsuit on February 15 against Baldwin and others involved with the film. The suit claims “reckless” behavior and cutting costs led to the death of Halyna.

The movie’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, who is also named in the Hutchins family’s lawsuit, said in another lawsuit filed by her attorneys in January that she loaded the prop gun with what she believed were dummy rounds. Gutierrez-Reed also names in her suit crew member Seth Kenney, who supplied ammunition to the set.

It’s a huge legal mess, but hopefully everyone finds what they’re looking for. Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to Halyna’s friends and family.

Alec Baldwin Arrested For Assault After Punching A Dude Over Parking Space

 

It looks like Alec Baldwin’s insane temper continues to live on. The actor was arrested Friday morning in New York City after getting into a heated argument with a man over a parking spot.

Witnesses say Baldwin had a friend holding him a parking spot, but someone swooped in and took it up before he could park. This pissed Baldwin off. He got out of his vehicle and started yelling at the dude.

At some point during the argument, Baldwin punched the 49-year-old victim in the face. He was reportedly transported to the hospital. Cops were called and Baldwin was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault and harassment. He was given a desk appearance ticket and released by cops a short time later.

Pretty standard stuff from Mr. Baldwin. I’ve always thought he was an angry guy. I mean, no calm person calls their daughter a “rude, thoughtless pig.”

As most of you know, Baldwin often plays Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live. Reporters asked Trump what he thought about the arrest. Here’s what he had to say…

 

Alec Baldwin Will No Longer Be Playing Batman’s Father In Upcoming ‘Joker’ Movie

Well, damn. That happened fast. Earlier this week we told you that Alec Baldwin had joined the cast of the upcoming ‘Joker‘ film directed by Todd Phillips. He was reportedly going to play Bruce Wayne’s father, Thomas.

Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that the character would be “a cheesy and tanned businessman who is more in the mold of a 1980s Donald Trump,” and apparently Baldwin thought more about that description and decided he didn’t want to be typecast as the dude who plays Donald Trump.

Baldwin revealed on Wednesday that he is no longer doing the ‘Joker’ movie because of “scheduling issues,” but the story must be deeper than that because he just recently agreed to join. How did his schedule change so much?

He also said that he’s sure “there are 25 guys who can play that part,” which sounds like he’s throwing a little bit of shade at the movie, or at least that specific character.

The good news for Phillips and Warner Bros. is that they still have a pretty impressive cast working on this movie. You got Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz and Marc Maron. The film is expected to hit theaters October 4, 2019.

It’s Official: Alec Baldwin Is Joining Todd Phillips’ ‘Joker’ Film

Alec Baldwin is probably celebrating today after landing a supporting role in Todd Phillips’ upcoming Joker film, which will feature Joaquin Phoenix playing the title role.

Warner Bros. has not confirmed who Baldwin will be playing, but it’s believed he will play Thomas Wayne, who is Bruce Wayne/Batman’s father. In the comics, Thomas and his wife are murdered exiting the theater. A young Bruce witnesses the murder and becomes the vigilante we all know and love today.

“In the early comics, Wayne’s murderer is mugger/hitman Joe Chill, but starting with the first Tim Burton 1989 Batman movie, it’s the Joker who is the culprit.”

In addition to Baldwin and Phoenix, the movie will also star Robert De Niro, Marc Maron, Frances Conroy and the lovely Zazie Beetz.

Production is set to start September 10. It’s scheduled to be released October 4, 2019. We will keep you posted throughout production. Hopefully we get some photos from set.

Alec Baldwin’s Voice Stars In DreamWorks Animation’s New Trailer For Comedy ‘The Boss Baby’

First of all, what the heck is The Boss Baby? There hasn’t been a lot of information about it, so let’s get you updated. The 3D computer-animated comedy is loosely based on a picture book of the same name, which was illustrated and written by Marla Frazee.

And according to wiki, the plot centers on a “fast-talking, briefcase-carrying” infant called Baby Boss. Alec Baldwin voices the character, who accidentally gets tangled up in a scheme that threatens to “destabilize the balance of love in the world.”

He and his 7-year-old brother, Tim, must work together to save their family and the rest of the world. Jimmy Kimmel and Lisa Kudrow will voice their parents and Patton Oswalt serves as a grown-up version of Tim who will guide us through the film.

Tom McGrath is the director. His directing credits include the Madagascar films and Megamind, so it’s safe to say this movie is in good hands.

DreamWorks has been on a roll lately with How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Kung Fu Panda 3. Their next project, Trolls, will come out next month. The Boss Baby will be released March 31, 2017.

MOVIE REVIEW: Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation – Delivers Without Trying To Get Too Cerebral

Tom i cuffs

 

I want to hate Tom Cruise. I really do. He kind of weirds me out and I heard that he makes actors taller than him (which is just about everyone) squat slightly so they’ll always be the same height as him. Despite that, when I’m faced with movies like Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, I’m forced to admit a grudging respect for his acting skills. Despite the fact that this is the fifth sequel, and the whole series should be floundering by now, this latest installment proves that Cruise is doing the impossible. He’s making sequels that are better than the original.

Cruise returns as Ethan, a man working for IMF, the Impossible Mission Force. The problem this time is that Hunley (Alec Baldwin), the director of the CIA, thinks that the entire department is unnecessary and shuts it down. Despite his unemployed status, Ethan still has buddies like Luther (Ving Rhames), Benji (Simon Pegg), and Brandt (Jeremy Renner). With their help, he decides to continue his pursuit of the Syndicate, and its evil shady leader Solomon Lane (Sean Harris).

The franchise has the same suspenseful energy that generally gives me hand sweats and heart palpitations. That’s surprising, because you’d think I’d be desensitized to that by now. But I genuinely flinched during the sideways motorcycle scene and had to look away a few times. That’s the sign of a good suspense right there, because I never flinch away from the screen.

Another strong point I’ve always found with this franchise is unlike most action franchises, they actually manage to portray females as more than Madonna saints or ‘fighting f-toys’.  Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), a British spy, is more than just a love interest or damsel in distress. She’s a show stealer in her own right.

Tom Cruise manages to still come across with the energy of a much younger man and he’s in rare form in this movie. I have to say, the only time I like him is during the Mission Impossible movies and he has not let me down yet. When he does these movies, he stops being that creepy scientologist guy, and instead oozes charisma. In this one, he was pure magic.

Mission Impossible is a franchise that respects the genre. Unlike other action franchises, (James Bond comes to mind) they don’t force complicated storylines and plot twists. Instead, they keep the story simple and deliver exactly what action fans want. Pure escapism.

Sean Harris with his strangely raspy voice is the perfect villain. Alec Baldwin brings back shades of Jack Donaghy with his corporate portrayal of the most powerful man in the CIA. None of the actors in the movie laid down on the job.

Mission Impossible continues to be both commercially and critically successful because they respect their formula and they stick with it. I don’t want to have to rewind to figure out what the heck is going on in an action movie. I want to watch explosions and people getting beat up. Mission Impossible delivers without trying to get too cerebral. Because of that, I have to give this one a worth the watch.

WE GIVE IT: 4.5 STARS!

Could ‘Still Alice’ Land Julianne Moore Her First Oscar? Check Out The Trailer Inside!

still

What do Leonardo DiCaprio and Julianne Moore have in common? They both have been nominated for an Oscar four times, and each time they have failed to take home the award. Moore was actually nominated twice in 2002 for The Hours and Far from Heaven; however, she still went home empty-handed.

But could her performance in the upcoming film Still Alice finally earn her an Oscar? It’s certainly possible. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, and critics have been gushing over her performance.

Julianne Moore plays a cognitive psychologist, who is trying to deal with the effects of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Moore’s character struggles to balance all aspects of life, including her marriage to her husband John Howland (Alec Baldwin). Kristen Stewart, Hunter Parrish and Kate Bosworth co-star.

Still Alice had a limited release last weekend, to qualify for the Oscars. The wider theatrical release is scheduled for January 16, 2015. As someone who has lost a grandparent to Alzheimer’s disease, I will definitely be interested in checking this film out next month.
