Just 24 short years ago, eminent comedienne and Hollywood muse Emma Stone came into the world. Since then, the sometimes-blonde, sometimes-redhead, always-adorable starlet has consistently graced the movie world with her impeccable comic timing and that irresistibly smoky voice.
Tag: Andrew Garfield (11-20 of 22)
As shown in a recent video, Andrew Garfield is pretty handy with a ball. So it was a natural fit when the Amazing Spider-Man star announced he would serve as the Ambassador of Sport for the Worldwide Orphans Foundation (WWO). Donning pipe cleaner mock-ups of the blue spectacles worn by WWO founder Dr. Jane Aronson, Garfield explained that he was drawn to the Foundation after recently becoming an uncle. Seeing the love and opportunities his brother’s twin sons had, he wanted to give the same chance to children all over the world. “Jane and I are trying to offer these kids… a normal, necessary outlet to be physical,” said Garfield.

Other Desert Cities (Melissa)
Peter and the Starcatcher
Venus in Fur
It’s one of the strongest years in recent memory for new American plays. While Jon Robin Baitz’s Other Desert Cities won wide acclaim when it opened last year, I give the edge to Pulitzer winner Clybourne Park.
Leap of Faith
Newsies (Melissa, Thom)
Nice Work If You Can Get It
This is a two-way race between movie-based hits that each have an underdog story: Once and Newsies. The former is charming but relatively small-scale. And since a sizable number of Tony voters handle Broadway tours throughout the country, a more traditional, broader-based hit like Newsies is likely to win out. READ FULL STORY
In a rare feat for a non-musical on Broadway, Mike Nichols’ acclaimed revival of Death of a Salesman grossed just over $1 million last week, according to figures released by the Broadway League. The hit show, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman as Willy Loman and Andrew Garfield as his wayward son, Biff, set a new record for the 1,036-seat Barrymore Theatre. What’s even more remarkable is that Salesman scored at the box office despite playing only seven performances (most Broadway shows are mounted eight times per week). The production isn’t exactly a dime a dozen, to quote one of Biff’s lines: It’s been boosted by an A-list cast, stellar reviews, multiple Tony nominations, and a strictly limited engagement that’s let producers charge a premium for tickets. Last week’s average ticket price was a whopping $140.68, which enabled the show to earn 107 percent of the theater’s potential gross. That’s good news for the show’s investors, who announced May 16 that they’d already recouped their $3.1 million commitment to the show.
A lot of people will tell you that summer is the time to head outside and enjoy Mother Nature. We say, nonsense! Why would you want to mess with the heat and all those ants when you could be sitting in an air-conditioned IMAX theater on July 3, when The Amazing Spider-Man opens? Speaking of Spidey, Marvel’s web-slinging superhero swings his way to the top of our annual Summer Must List issue — your essential guide to all of the best movies, TV, music, and books of the season.
If you notice something different about the masked man on our cover, you’re not alone. Since we last saw him in 2007′s Spider-Man 3, Peter Parker & Co. have undergone some major changes. Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, and Sam Raimi are gone (thanks for the memories, guys!); Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Marc Webb are in (the pressure’s on, guys!). In our early look at one of this summer’s most feverishly anticipated tentpoles, we get all of the inside scoop from Garfield, Stone, Webb, and Rhys Ifans — who plays Spidey’s latest onscreen nemesis, Dr. Curt Connors, a.k.a. The Lizard. READ FULL STORY
Ten years ago, indie-film actor Tobey Maguire starred in Spider-Man and became the face of one of the biggest franchises in movie history. This summer, history is repeating itself, with Andrew Garfield — an actor best known for stealing scenes in The Social Network and being grim, nude, and British in the grim, nudely British Red Riding trilogy — headlining hopeful megahit The Amazing Spider-Man. Now, V-Man has brought the two Peter Parkers together for a genial, backslapping summit which nevertheless provides an intriguing portrait of two actors on two very different ends of the modern Hollywood media circus.
