#TIFF12: 8 PUBLICISTS DISH THEIR SECRETS TO SURVIVING THE FESTIVAL
The Toronto International Film Festival - make no mistake - is first and foremost a celebration of Cinema and Celebrity, but beyond the glare of flashing Cameras, the thick of the high-decibel screams of Fans and 8x10s being thrust on Clipboards, are the Publicists who keep it all afloat. Yes, that well-groomed and often tired looking Woman or Man in a Blazer standing behind Bradley Cooper or Ryan Gosling as they bask in their Red Carpet glow, is that Publicist whose job you wish you had. ...

INTERVIEW: CHANNING TATUM & JOE MANGANIELLO ON “MAGIC MIKE”
A year ago, a few eyebrows might've been raised with the talk of there being a Steven Soderbergh Male Stripper Film in development. Magic Mike as that Film now is known, will soon be revealed - pardon the pun - amidst the 2012 Summer rush of Blockbusters. I mean, we've all heard of 1995's delicious and unintentionally-laughable Showgirls, but much still is left to be accomplished in Films of the ever-tricky Stripping genre. Stars Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello (pronounced with a hard "g") ...
INTERVIEW: BRADLEY COOPER ON “THE HANGOVER PART II”
"So was the Sequel disappointing?" is the first thing he said to me as he walked into the Interview Suite of this Yorkville Hotel. It was a long day of Press, following another busy day of promotion yesterday in Philadelphia. Toronto is just another stopoff on an aggressive Promo Tour which will be taking much of his time over the next two weeks. Catching me off-guard completely before a small table of Journalists, it took me a second to realize what he was up to. "I loved The Hangover, so yeah ...

Such is the playful banter and stuff of Chemistry which has made a hit out of the Duo's $64-million grossing Stoner-Comedy franchise, Harold & ...
