Today we have a look at James Franco’s latest  art exhibit which you can check out at New York’s Pace Gallery through May 3, 2014.

James Franco: New Film Stills is “a series of gelatin silver print photographs made in 2013 ranging in scale from 40-by-30 inch to 8-by-10 inch. Recreating Cindy Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills, Franco positions his body in the same pose, attire and scenario as Sherman did as the subject in her stills nearly 30 years ago.”

Here’s a sneak peek inside the exhibit:

One of my many obsessions this winter was House of Cards, especially Frank and Claire Underwood’s pristine D.C. townhouse.

Of course, the house doesn’t really exist, at least not in the way we see it on TV. The interiors of the home are a series of perfectly dressed sets on the show’s Joppa, MD soundstage.

The real winner of this year’s awards season might have been Matthew McConaughey’s catchphrase – “Alright, Alright, Alright.”

But, the line isn’t just another cute quotation, it’s the first line McConaughey ever uttered on screen.

The scene was for the movie Dazed & Confused in which Matthew plays Wooderson, a man in his early 20s who can’t quite let go of his high school days. McConaughey has explained he picked up the line after listening to The Doors Live.

Since the Academy doesn’t give out an Oscar for Filming Locations, I thought I’d award one myself.

Of tonight’s nominated films, there is no doubt the Best Filming Location Oscar should go to Nebraska.

The locations in the movie – including Norfolk, Plainview, Osmond, Hooper, Lyons, Stanton, Elgin, Tilden and Lincoln, Nebraska, along with locations in Montana, South Dakota, and Wyoming – act as a supporting character in Nebraska, as locations do in most of Alexander Payne’s films.

The movie has also shined a spotlight on a part of the country that doesn’t get much attention which will likely increase tourism to the state and potentially have a long lasting economic impact.

We’d be remiss if didn’t include the iconic New York City firehouse that served as the Ghostbusters headquarters in our series of Must See Filming Locations.

Hook & Ladder 8, located at 14 N Moore St in Tribeca is still one of the most visited filming locations in NYC. The building is also an active firehouse and the firefighters who call this station home are always happy to discuss the building’s history.

The majestic hilltop estate of William Randolph Hearst was transformed into a video set Tuesday night.

The Hearst Castle, located in San Simeon, is a state historical monument that has been toured by millions – including us – curious to see what a 90,000 square feet mansion and private zoo is really like.

The shoot was for an upcoming Lady Gaga video and took place in the estate’s Roman Pool, an over-the-top blue-and-gold tiled indoor pool complete with gold statues.
