Hereafter, OneXOne

  • Details of the different fundraising events for OneXOne on Saturday are at the official website, with special guests to include John Legend and Lennox Lewis. A report on the lunchtime event is at the National Post:

    And, Oh: The officially unofficial Prime Minister, Frank McKenna, is set to host a lunch Saturday with his buddy and partner in philanthropy, Matt Damon. At the Bisha Presenation Centre downtown, that's where. A -- phew! -- daytime event. It's true, it really is. The luncheon is a private event, I understand, organized to help fete five years of the ONExONE organization, as well as the new launch of the Mirebalais hospital in Haiti with Partners in Health.

  • An interview with Clint Eastwood is previewed at the LA Times, with another article at the Vancouver Sun and a brief review at CTV.

    Clint Eastwood's new thriller about the afterlife isn't what people might expect from this 80-year-old icon. But Clint's walk into the "Hereafter" is a winner. The film follows three people across the globe who all can communicate with the dead. Matt Damon plays a reluctant American psychic whose strange abilities kibosh his love life. French actress Cecile de France portrays a Paris anchorwoman who can tap into the other side after surviving 2004's Indian Ocean tsunami. Twin actors Frankie and George McLaren play two London kids who cross death's veil during the city's subway bombings. Eastwood intertwines these lives with a finesse that's never overplayed, and leaves us spooked by our own mortality even in the safest light of day.

  • Hallie Steinfeld discussed the set of True Grit for the first time here:

    Steinfeld: "Jeff [Bridges] has a game called Pass the Pigs—you roll these teeny plastic pigs and get points based on how they land. Everyone got so intense about it that you'd think they were playing for money."

  • There is still no script for Rounders 2 yet, according to the writers.
