Saturday Night Live: Alec Baldwin, Miley Cyrus Lend Edward Norton a Hand

Owen Wilson "Doing Very Well," Still Full of Laughs

Barely a week after he attempted to take his life, Owen Wilson is giving friends hope for a turnaround. "Obviously, he has been through a lot," director Wes Anderson told reporters at a Monday press conference to promote The Darjeeling Limited, in which Wilson costars. "I can tell you that he has been doing very well, he has been making us laugh." Anderson reiterated Wilson's request for space during this delicate juncture, saying, "When he is ready he's going to speak for himself much better than any of us could" — and in that charming, "Golly-gee, shucks" voice of his. read more

I was listening to the DVD ...

Question: I was listening to the DVD commentary for The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and noticed that when cowriters Noah Baumbach and Wes Anderson discussed inspirations for the character of Zissou, the name was bleeped out. I'm guessing they were saying "Jacques Cousteau," but regardless of whether or not I'm right, why was the commentary censored?

Not because there's any legal reason you can't mention a person's name, particularly that of a famous person, but because there may have been concern about potential legal actions stemming from the claim that The Life Aqu read more

Bill Murray's Miserable Life

In The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Bill Murray stars as an egotistical underwater adventurer who has relationship issues with his wife, long-lost son, and pretty much his whole crew. Turns out, there's a lot of misery behind the movie's comedy. While Murray was interested in reteaming with his Royal Tennenbaums director, Wes Anderson, the 54-year-old was very unhappy during the several months they spent filming on location in Italy. "I was physically and emotionally drained, not just from the work," Murray sighs. "It was a torturous experience to be away from home for that long. I hated going to work. I was so personally miserable that it was really a challenge to work every day because I was just so lonely and missed my [family] so much. It was what I imagine being in prison is like." While most of his Zissou co-stars say they got close, Murray has a rather cynical take on the setside camaraderie. "It was like a famil read more
