No one could stop Dillinger and his gang. No jail could hold him. His charm and audacious jailbreaks endeared him to almost everyone-from his girlfriend Billie Frechette (Cotillard) to an American public who had no sympathy for the banks that had plunged the country into the Depression.
But while the adventures of Dillinger's gang, later including the sociopathic Baby Face Nelson (Stephen Graham) and Alvin Karpis (Giovanni Ribisi), thrilled many, Hoover (Billy Crudup) hit on the idea of exploiting the outlaw's capture as a way to elevate his Bureau of Investigation into the national police force that became the FBI. He made Dillinger America's first Public Enemy Number One and sent in Purvis, the dashing Clark Gable of the FBI.''
However, Dillinger and his gang outwitted and outgunned Purvis' men in wild chases and shootouts. Only after importing a crew of Western ex-lawmen (newly baptized as agents) and orchestrating epic betrayals, from the infamous 'Lady in Red' to the Chicago crime boss Frank Nitti, were Purvis, the FBI and their new crew of gunfighters able to close in on Dillinger.
Giovanni Ribisi and Sarah Silverman sit down with Access' Liz Hernandez to discuss their new comedy, "A Million Ways to Die in the West." Did they know they would have instant chemistry? Plus, what was it like working with Seth MacFarlane?
The three officers played by Anthony Mackie, Giovanni Ribisi & Robert Patrick sit down with Drew McWeeny to talk about Gangster Squad.
When a murder mystery next door forces agoraphobic heiress Abigail Clayton (Selma Blair - Hellboy, "Kath and Kim") to face her terrifying new neighbors, the safe and solitary world she created for herself violently unravels.
In order to escape the hounding public and press, Abigail, the famous daughter of a wealthy industrialist, secluded herself in her Manhattan loft on the day she received her enormous inheritance - her eighteenth birthday. Sequestered at the top of the Columbus Circle luxury apartment high-rise, Abigail remained seemingly secure for nearly 20 years until the day her elderly neighbor was suddenly slain. Abigail's world is now disrupted by strange new neighbors and a police investigation that brings the inquisitive and intrusive NYPD Homicide Detective Frank Giardello (Giovanni Ribisi - Contraband, Saving Private Ryan) to her door. Peering anxiously through her peephole each day, Abigail soon learns that the dangerous new tenants, Lillian Hart (Amy Smart - The Butterfly Effect, Varsity Blues) and Charles Stratford (Jason Lee "My Name is Earl"), may threaten more than just her privacy.
