    With 'Crown Heights,' ex-NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha is claiming space in Hollywood

    Nnamdi Asomugha never thought he’d actually become an actor. Sure, like many young black boys growing up, there were two careers that captured his idea of success: on the field or court as a professional athlete or on stages and screens as a top-billed entertainer.

    1987 revisited: Scribes, World War II through the eyes of babes and Mickey Rourke

    It was the ’80s, so the films of 1987 naturally had big stars, big hair and big soundtracks. The year’s most popular movie, however improbably, was a remake of a French comedy, “Three Men and a Baby,” starring Steve Guttenberg, Tom Selleck and Ted Danson, and directed by Leonard Nimoy.

    Hostage drama '6 Days' proves duller than real-life

    As Ben Affleck’s “Argo” effectively demonstrated, movies based on real-life events such as the 444-day Iran hostage crisis can be every bit as tensely unpredictable and thoroughly entertaining as their entirely fictional counterparts. The same, unfortunately, cannot be said for the considerably...

    'Women Who Kill' is a fresh twist on indie comedy, romance and serial killers
