Nikki Finke parody includes a Skyfall parody

The Funny or Die website has A PARODY of the Nikki Finke-Deadline: Hollywood situation. In turn, the parody includes a parody of Skyfall, the most recent James Bond movie.

For the uninitiated, Finke founded the Deadline website, which tended to get lots of scoops (including some ABOUT SKYFALL and THE SCOOP that Bond 24 and Bond 25 would be written by John Logan). She had a falling out with Jay Penske, who bought the site from her. You can CLICK HERE for a Nov. 19 Los Angeles Times story with background.

Anyway, actress Jean Smart plays Finke in the Funny or Die video. As for the Skyfall element that’s part of the parody, we won’t spoil it. Click HERE to see the video.

Henry Cavill News interviews U.N.C.L.E. film actor

Henry Cavill as Napoleon Solo

The Henry Cavill News site today PUBLISHED AN INTERVIEW with actor-musician Rob Jones, who plays, in his words, “one of the employed baddies” in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie.

Jones is among the actors still working on the movie this week, the last of principal photography. Henry Cavill wrapped up his work as Napoleon Solo last week. The Guy Ritchie-directed film is being done as a 1960s period piece.

In the interview, Jones was careful with his words, trying not to give away much. The fan website asked Jones for his opinion of Cavill’s performance as Solo. The answer: “I think despite the era the film is set in, he will modernise Solo while maintaining the roots. He was great in The Tudors and awesome in Superman. I’ve no fear, especially after witnessing one of the bigger action scenes of MFU, that he’s adaptable to anything!”

The movie has a reported budget of $75 million, considerably lower than films such as Skyfall or Man of Steel, where Cavill played Superman. Jones said the movie has “big BIG sets! They’re not holding back on size here!”
