Meanwhile, he’s acting in a wider range of projects than ever before. A versatile performer known for immersing himself in his roles, he currently stars opposite Brian Cox in the minimalist horror-drama “The Autopsy of Jane Doe,” opening December 21, and has a range of projects — from a buddy comedy with Jk Simmons to a sweeping China-set period drama with an otherwise Asian cast—scheduled for 2017.
“The work itself is the goal,” he said, settling into Brooklyn eatery Sisters after a long day promoting “Jane Doe” in Manhattan. He was in the midst of a monthlong break from the novel, following the advice of Stephen King’s “On Writing,” his favorite guidebook.

Alexis Arquette has died, it's been announced. She was just 47.
Some very sad news. It’s been announced that actor Alexis Arquette has died. She was just 47 years old, and was surrounded by her family as she passed away.
Arquette featured in films as diverse as Pulp Fiction, Lords Of Dogtown, Bride Of Chucky and Last Exit To Brooklyn. Perhaps her highest profile role was her scene-stealing turn as George in The Wedding Singer.
Arquette also won wide praise for the documentary Alexis Arquette: She’s My Brother, in which she documented her reassignment surgery. Her work was credited with bringing greater awareness to and of the transgender community.
Rest in peace, Alexis Arquette. Our thoughts are very much with her family and friends.
"Our brother Robert, who became our brother Alexis, who became our sister Alexis, who became our brother Alexis, passed this morning September 11, at 12:32 am," Richmond wrote. "He was surrounded by all of his brothers and sisters, one of his nieces and several other loved ones. We were playing music for him and he passed during David Bowie's Starman.

This purportedly true account of the 2012 “Battle of Benghazi” opens with American military contractors Jack Silva (John Krasinski: The Wind Rises, Monsters University), who has just arrived in town, and his old buddy Tyrone “Rone” Woods (James Badge Dale: The Walk, Parkland) bluffing their way past a roadblock by armed Libyans. It doesn’t matter what side the Libyans are on; in the chaos that erupted after Gaddafi’s death: the point is that they are Libyans — suspiciously lawless violent folk, that is, who cannot even get their own nation under control — and not Americans.

It is a great tragedy of our culture that men are not encouraged to have the same sort of intensely emotional and hugely supportive relationships among themselves that women have with other women. Men are forced to find their emotional support, sometimes their only such support, from wives or girlfriends, while their wives and girlfriends have entire networks of friends — who slot into a sometimes massive and ever-shifting hierarchy that starts with Occasional Drinking Buddy to Bff — to whom we turn for advice, encouragement, mutual bitching sessions, pats on the back, and so much more.
So what do men see
From the outset, David Fincher has honed a very distinctive visual style. Gritty and visceral, yet clean and precise, his back catalogue is very impressive. From Fight Club and Seven to The Social Network and Gone Girl, he has managed to make films that are both high quality and that people love. Yet they often also cost a lot of money and, due to the often uncompromising nature of his films, studios can be reluctant to give him exactly what he wants. The inevitable result is that differences become irreconcilable and projects collapse.
Below we look at some of the projects that have fallen by the wayside.

Well, it actually probably goes back to 2003, when I was at the London Film Festival for “Thirteen.” I met the producer, Christopher Simon, there, and we were at one of those filmmaker dinners and really hit it off. I was always doing sketches of everyone I met at festivals in my notebook, and I did a half-hour sketch of him at that dinner,
Miss You Already is an honest and powerful story following two best friends, Milly (Toni Collette) and Jess (Drew Barrymore), as they navigate life's highs and lows.
