Deadline’s Mike Fleming is Going Bicoastal

DeadlineHollywoodlogoBeginning next month, Nikki Finke‘s tireless film editor will divide his time equally each month between Long Island and Los Angeles. It’s a big change for Fleming, one he wants you to know is not an indication of troubles at the mother ship:

I think Deadline is thriving despite a recent batch of articles implying otherwise, and it pisses me off when journalists cheap shot us (I disagree with New York Times’ reporter Brooks Barnes and his assessment that Deadline has grown bland. The only thing that concerns me is Barnes could teach a master class on how to write blandly, so he’s as close to an authority as you’ll find on the subject).

Ha ha. Fleming goes on to share all sorts of great recollections: how his showbiz reporter career began accidentally in connection with a project involving Ralph Macchio, Emilio Estevez and Peter Bart; how a Long Dong Silver porn tape threw Variety parent company execs for a loop; how a trial run living in LA was ended by his wife’s ultimatum; and how Disney learned to live with his Jessica Rabbit revelations.

Martin Sheen Shows THR Reporter the Way

By somewhat sheer happenstance, the Hollywood Reporter‘s Scott Feinberg has been thrust onto the Inside the Actors Studio beat.

After Martin Sheen heard “through the grapevine” about the film journalist’s fondness for The Way, an indie drama made with and by son Emilio Estevez, the 71-year-old actor invited Feinberg to his Malibu home. The result is a nearly two-hour videotaped conversation about Sheen’s life and times.

What’s so great about this video is how raw it is. With a spectacular rock-landscaped pool in the background, Sheen is free to reminisce without any of those annoying cut-away shots  so common at Hollywood junkets, of the interviewing journalist nodding or smiling.

Seal Beach Massacre Grievers Find Solace in The Way

AFI Fest was not the only film action in town this weekend. Per an inspiring write-up in the National Catholic Reporter, there was also a memorable screening of the new Emilio Estevez-Martin Sheen drama The Way on Saturday atop the Chalon campus of Mount St. Mary’s College.

As Sister Rose Pacatte reports, a number of celebrities were among the 350-person audience. There was also this amazing post-screening Q&A tidbit, offered up by Reverend Scott Young, executive director of UCLA’s University Religious Conference:

Young shared that the day before, he had been at a restaurant in Seal Beach near a beauty salon where in October a gunman opened fire, killing eight people. Young began chatting with some ladies who were dining at the next table and found that they were close friends of the stylists who were killed.

Can Martin Sheen, Emilio Show Charlie The Way?

This week’s episode of Two and Half Porn Stars featuring Charlie Sheen, a hernia and the alleged home delivery of a “briefcase full of cocaine” suggests that the highest paid TV actor in Hollywood continues to ignore the difference between “the life we live and the live we choose.”

That’s not some hokey life-mantra from FishbowlLA. It’s actually a pivotal line of dialogue brother Emilio Estevez‘s character utters via flashback in the upcoming Easter movie The Way, the story of a dad (Martin Sheen, pictured) who ventures to Spain to recover the dead body of his son. The drama is Estevez’s first writer-director effort since 2006′s critically acclaimed Bobby.
