    When you mention Mara Wilson most that were kids at the time or have seen it in later years either via video or TV will remember her as the title character from Matilda the big screen adaptation of the much-loved Roald Dahl novel directed by Danny DeVito, or the earlier Mrs. Doubtfire. Well the title of this series whatever happened to does to apply as much to Mara who by all accounts seem to be doing well and quite happy with what she is doing since quitting acting after filming Thomas and the Magic Railroad which was released in the year 2000. Mara was indeed a successful child actor at the time, she was first spotted by most in the hit "Mrs. Doubtfire" which is a personal favorite of mine, she then went on to Miracle on 34th Street with some TV work between on the series "Melrose Place" as Nikki Petrova. She then went on to "Matilda" another film that I enjoyed and many today continue to enjoy its entertainment value by DVD or TV viewings. Mara then filmed A Simple Wish which has since been renamed to (The Fairygodmother) and again another highly enjoyable family film enjoyed by many. Three years later after "Thomas and the Magic Railroad" which failed at the box-office in the USA but had more success overseas. Mara Wilson in the short time has left a body of work that is still enjoyed today by many and her decision to walk away seemed to be her own as he decided to focus on school and enjoy her teenage years. It’s reported that in June 2005 she graduated from Idyllwild School of Music & Arts and went on to attend New York University. In 2008 she wrote and performed the one woman play, "Weren't You That Girl". Tit ran for three days and detailed her life and how others treated her because of her days as a child star. Mara lives the quiet life in NYC and Writes plays, fiction and non-fiction, and maintains a blog. Seems to be doing quite well thank you and any here that has not seen any of the mentioned titles then I recommend giving them a watch, especially “Matilda.” For a better explanation on why she quit acting, then hear it from Mara herself from this posting on her blog.   Mara Wilson in a more recent photo.

    One of the best performances I have ever seen by a child actor was by Max Pomeranc in the 1993 film "Searching for Bobby Fischer" playing the role of Josh Waitzkin, I am not alone in this view as you see here in a quote from actor Jake Gyllenhaal who said “One of the greatest performances I’ve ever seen is Max Pomeranc as the young boy in ‘Searching for Bobby Fischer.’ Something about watching a child and his ability to be honest and his desperation for honesty even in the midst of all the adults surrounding them—which is essentially what that movie is about—and the performance itself is so present and exists on its own even today.” And that is some high praise. Max was born in Manhattan, New York on March 21, 1984 and when he made his big-screen debut in Searching for Bobby Fischer, he was one of the country's top 100 chess players in his age group. In Searching for Bobby Fischer Max plays the role of a prepubescent chess prodigy refuses to harden himself in order to become a champion like the famous but unlikable Bobby Fischer. It is a very well-acted film not just by Max but a strong cast with the likes of Laurence Fishburne, Joan Allen, Joe Mantegna and Ben Kinglsley among others. The movie is one of my favorite films and I highly recommend a viewing, it carries a strong 7.5 rating on IMDB. After Searching for Bobby Fischer Max appeared in the TV movie "Nowhere to hide" (1994) and the enjoyable Family Drama Fluke with Samuel L. Jackson supplying the voice of Rumbo. After the TV movie Journey(1995) Max was simply not seen in the world of acting until a small role in 2008’s "Definitely, Maybe" and that was it. Very little was known in the ensuing years but reports had him graduating from The Bronx High School of Science in 2002. He then attended McGill University in Montreal, Canada (2003) and Graduated in 2006. In "Searching for Bobby Fischer" and "Fluke" Max Pomeranc left us with two enjoyable films and two very good performances.

    Kevin Hart and Ice Cube lead the lineup in Ride Along, the new film from the director and the producer of the blockbuster comedy Think Like a Man. When a fast-talking guy joins his girlfriend’s brother—a hot-tempered cop—to patrol the streets of Atlanta, he gets entangled in the officer’s latest case. Now, in order to prove that he deserves his future bride, he must survive the most insane 24 hours of his life. For the past two years, high-school security guard Ben (Hart) has been trying to show decorated APD detective James (Cube) that he’s more than just a video-game junkie who’s unworthy of James’ sister, Angela (Tika Sumpter). When Ben finally gets accepted into the academy, he thinks he’s earned the seasoned policeman’s respect and asks for his blessing to marry Angela. Knowing that a ride along will demonstrate if Ben has what it takes to take care of his sister, James invites him on a shift designed to scare the hell out of the trainee. But when the wild night leads them to the most notorious criminal in the city, James will find that his new partner’s rapid-fire mouth is just as dangerous as the bullets speeding at it. John Leguizamo and Laurence Fishburne join the cast of the action-comedy directed by Tim Story. Ride Along is produced by Will Packer (Think Like a Man), alongside Ice Cube, Matt Alvarez (Barbershop) and Larry Brezner (Good Morning, Vietnam). www.ridealong.net   Genre: Action-comedy Cast: Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, John Leguizamo, Bruce McGill, Tika Sumpter, Bryan Callen and Laurence Fishburne Directed by: Tim Story Screenplay by: Greg Coolidge and Jason Mantzoukas and Phil Hay & Matt Manfredi Story by: Greg Coolidge Produced by: Will Packer, Ice Cube, Matt Alvarez, Larry Brezner Executive Producers: Nicolas Stern, Ron Muhammad, Chris Bender, JC Spink

    Like Charlie Korsmo covered in the last blog, Barret Oliver was a popular and talented child star on the scene for a few year and then just up and quit acting. Barrett Spencer Oliver was born on the 24 August 1973, Los Angeles, California, USA and attended Los Feliz (Apple) School, an Elementary School in Los Angeles. He developed an interest in acting after his elder brother, Kyle, became involved in acting as a child. Barret by his own admission stated that he started out with a commercial with no lines but by the mid 80’s he was quite a bankable child star. His next big step was on a 1981 episode of the TV series "The Incredible Hulk," and during 1982-83 he had small roles in the films "Jekyll and Hyde... Together Again," "Kiss Me Goodbye" and "Uncommon Valor." On television he played Q.P. in the TV movie "The Circle Family" and guest starred on the series "Knight Rider" and "Love, Sidney." It was 1984 and playing the role of Bastian in the beloved hit "The NeverEnding Story" that shot him to child star fame. That same year he also appeared in Wes Craven’s "Invitation to Hell." The next year in 1985 he played the title character in "D.A.R.Y.L." and also played David in "Cocoon." The next few years he filmed some TV movies and made guest appearances before returning in 1998 for the sequel to Cocoon. His final work was on the film Scenes from the "Class Struggle in Beverly Hills" and that was it for Barret Oliver. Much like Korsmo with no facts to back it up I think Barret simply got tired of acting and walked away from that life, Last reports ion 2004 placed him teaching photography in Los Angeles, California. His print work has been part of numerous gallery and museum exhibitions. He has also done the Wet-Plate process in Ireland for a Guinness commercial and in Romania for the motion picture Cold Mountain. In addition, he has written articles on photography and contributed to demonstrations and workshops. He also authored the book "A History of the Woodburytype." Woodburytypes are made from a 19th century photo-mechanical process.

      Charlie Korsmo was born in Fargo, North Dakota on July 20, 1978 and as a child actor between 1990 and 1991 appeared in "Men Don't Leave," "Dick Tracy," "What About Bob?," "Hook," "The Doctor" and the made for TV film "Heat Wave" all this in the space of these two years. He appeared opposite such talent as Jessica Lange, Joan Cusack, Kathy Bates, Warren Beatty, Richard Dreyfuss, Bill Murray, Dustin Hoffman, Robin Williams and Julia Roberts. All before the ripe old age of 13 and his talent stood out next to the heavyweights and then Korsmo disappeared form films for seven long years before an appearance in the 1998 film Can't Hardly Wait and that has been it to this date. So what happened to such a promising young child actor? Well Korsmo simply got up and quit acting after 1991’s Hook with Robin Williams and directed by Steven Spielberg. What is he up to today? Well Mr. Korsmo is an extremely brilliant man; he graduated from MIT with a degree in physics. He's worked for the the House Select Committee on Homeland Security and Environmental Protection Agency. Then in 2006 he graduated from Yale Law School, and he currently teaches law at Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland, Ohio. Recently he was nominated for membership on the Board of Trustees of the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program President Obama. How impressive is all of that? Good for Charlie and join me here regularly as I take a look back at what some former child stars are up to these days.   Below is a recent look at Mr. Korsmo

    Riddick, the latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000’s hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and 2004’s The Chronicles of Riddick reunites writer/director David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway, The Fugitive) and star Vin Diesel (the Fast and Furious franchise, xXx). Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy. The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy.   Genre:  Epic action-adventure      Cast:  Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Jordi Mollà, Matt Nable,   Katee Sackhoff, Dave Bautista, Bokeem Woodbine,   Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Gerard Funk Directed by:  David Twohy  Written by: David Twohy Based on Characters   Created by:  Jim & Ken Wheat Produced by:  Vin Diesel, Ted Field Executive Producers: Samantha Vincent, Mike Drake, George Zakk www.riddickmovie.com Watch Trailer  RIDDICK                                                                            September 6, 2013

    It looks like One Direction has done it again. Two smash albums in just two years, books, movies, sold out world tours, and the constant adoration of their fans, the “Directioners”. This group has taken the world by storm and everybody knows it. Even if you’re not a fan, you cannot deny the way that clever marketing, social media, and a great look has propelled this music sensation not only to the top of the UK music charts but to the whole world in general. They won all 3 of their nominations in MTV’s music awards as well as having two out of the top five albums in the US in the same year. No modern group has done that in the Nielsen era. Their books have made it to the NY Times bestseller list and now they threaten to outdo even themselves with the trailer for their latest movie, 1D3D having just been released. This could easily be the best year yet for One Direction and it’s only February.  Since their creation at the hands of Simon Cowell, One Direction has had only one direction, straight to the top. They were formed from Simon’s show X-factor in which the boys failed the singles auditions but looked promising as a group. Thus the concept was born. Since that moment, the boys have been unstoppable. Their two world tours, 10 million and counting Twitter followers, and the fact that everything they touch seems to turn into platinum attest to their success. With the release of their latest project, 1D3D, they will manage to make yet another success.  The movie is much like the last film they did “Up All Night: The Live Tour” and fans will again be delighted with the level of access they get to the group. Not only will there be the live concerts you would expect, there are the many candid moments of the boys simply being boys. Candid moments in the bathroom, pranks, and the fun moments the group has while on tour. There are also the rumors of a soundtrack being released for the movie which could include material not yet heard by the fans. The movie gives its fans what they want, a behind the scenes look at One Direction in a way that only they see themselves. This movie should easily surpass their last one and possibly become the best selling concert movie of all time. With the possibility of new songs being released for the movie, this could make 2013 an even bigger year for the group. What could possibly be better than a smash hit in the box office, possibilities for another top 5 album, and the continued adoration from their fans still shows that this group still has only one direction, straight up.

    It looks like One Direction has done it again. Two smash albums in just two years, books, movies, sold out world tours, and the constant adoration of their fans, the “Directioners”. This group has taken the world by storm and everybody knows it. Even if you’re not a fan, you cannot deny the way that clever marketing, social media, and a great look has propelled this music sensation not only to the top of the UK music charts but to the whole world in general. They won all 3 of their nominations in MTV’s music awards as well as having two out of the top five albums in the US in the same year. No modern group has done that in the Nielsen era. Their books have made it to the NY Times bestseller list and now they threaten to outdo even themselves with the trailer for their latest movie, 1D3D having just been released. This could easily be the best year yet for One Direction and it’s only February.  Since their creation at the hands of Simon Cowell, One Direction has had only one direction, straight to the top. They were formed from Simon’s show X-factor in which the boys failed the singles auditions but looked promising as a group. Thus the concept was born. Since that moment, the boys have been unstoppable. Their two world tours, 10 million and counting Twitter followers, and the fact that everything they touch seems to turn into platinum attest to their success. With the release of their latest project, 1D3D, they will manage to make yet another success.  The movie is much like the last film they did “Up All Night: The Live Tour” and fans will again be delighted with the level of access they get to the group. Not only will there be the live concerts you would expect, there are the many candid moments of the boys simply being boys. Candid moments in the bathroom, pranks, and the fun moments the group has while on tour. There are also the rumors of a soundtrack being released for the movie which could include material not yet heard by the fans.

    Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man, Melancholia) and Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas, Across the Universe) star in Upside Down, an interplanetary dystopian romance about a young man’s search for the long-lost girl of his dreams. Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Juan Solanas and set in twinned worlds with opposite gravities, the film puts an eye-popping, original twist on the classic tale of forbidden love. Lovers Adam (Sturgess) and Eden (Dunst) are separated not just by social class and a political system bent on keeping them apart, but also by a freak planetary condition: they live on twinned worlds with gravities that pull in opposite directions—he on the poverty-stricken planet below, she on the wealthy, exploitative world above. The planets are so close that their highest mountain peaks almost touch. That’s where Adam and Eden first meet as children. And later, as teens, where he pulls her down to his world by a rope to cavort in dual-gravity bliss (visiting the other planet does not release a person from the gravitational pull of their native planet). But when interplanetary border-patrol agents attack them, Eden falls back to her world—apparently dead. Ten years later, Adam learns that Eden is alive and working at TransWorld—a vast corporation whose towering headquarters is the only structure that connects the planets—and the only legal means of passing between them. In a desperate attempt to find her, Adam gets a job at TransWorld developing a revolutionary face-lift cream based on a secret, gravity-neutralizing ingredient that has been passed down for generations in his family. From his lower-world cubicle, he quickly sets about infiltrating the upper-world executive suites to reconnect with Eden. And so begins a quest fraught with dangers and challenges—from having to woo Eden all over again because of the memory loss she suffered in the fall, to fleeing authorities through a topsy-turvy realm where up is sometimes down and down is sometimes up. Upside Down is a visually stunning romantic adventure that asks the question: what if love was stronger than gravity?   Upside Down - (Millennium Entertainment) - Release: 03/15/2013 Watch Trailer HD
