After sharing a daughter with Clint Eastwood, Frances Fisher then joined the lineup who dated Clooney in the ’90s and is now in the film “Run the Race.” It’s out the 21st.
Fisher: “It’s about brothers in a small Southern town. I play edgy characters. This one simplified life to give love to two boys who need guidance. The takeaway is kindness and forgiveness for others but also for one’s self, which is the key to healing.”
Co-star Mario Van Peebles: “As long as you’re here and able to breathe, you can teach someone — and make a difference. We’ve all gone through things. I hope people see this and say, ‘You will find someone to help you.’ Truth is, we’ve all probably either bullied someone or been bullied.”
On the subway? Maybe see a dude who looks a little like he — almost nearly partially possibly who-knows — double for Tom Hanks? Could be. Home is California, but the man has a place here. Considering our traffic has reached a point where some believe the real Alexander Hamilton is still around trying to get crosstown, be it known USA’s Oscar winner actually rides NYC’s underground.
More transit stuff. Struggling in New York City, naive Frances (Chloë Grace Moretz) returns a handbag she found on the train in the coming movie “Greta.” Its owner is eccentric French piano teacher Greta (Isabelle Huppert). They become friends — but, trust me, nothing from “The Crying Game’s” Oscar-winning director Neil Jordan is what it seems. The thriller’s stars get a Cinema Society screening this week. All arrive by limo.
Comes another late-night talk show. It’s to be minus political saliva drooling from the host’s mouth, which we know will only clamp shut when Blarney Sanders becomes president.
David Spade: “Comedy Central’s gambling on me, thinking: ‘It’s risky. He’s done 22 movies, 14 TV shows, seven sitcoms, two books, two specials and TMZ a lot.’
“We’ll cover everything including what’s dumb. Like talk about Cardi B, Cardi C, Cardi D. But no politics. Look, I went to community college. I got six credits in anthropology. Stupid, I don’t know even zip about what’s going on out there.
“The program has no name yet. Me, I like, ‘The David Spade Show.’ Whatever, it’ll air soon. After ‘The Daily Show.’ ”
FOX-TV money honey Maria Bartiromo’s on the cover of Resident magazine, and they’re partying her at Yara restaurant on East 53rd . . . “Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s” Stephanie Beatriz is in “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.” Why a second one, who knows? She likes the game. She played as a kid . . . Let’s mention Julia Roberts should’ve been nominated for Best Actress this year. Her work with Lucas Hedges in “Ben Is Back” — magnificent.
“The Sopranos” just ran into the law. The NYPD’s Retired Detectives Winter Cigar gig wanted to honor Federico Castelluccio, who played Furio, Edie Falco’s boyfriend. He said, “No, I want to honor you. I’m a big fan of law enforcement.”
Shooting starts here next month on his new mob thriller “Besa,” a mafia film with Chazz Palminteri. Incidentally, he’s well-hung. An artist, his paintings show in three museums. D.J. Trump’s a collector. Being fair and balanced, so’s Whoopi.
Speaking of art, Picasso said it (if he didn’t, he should have): “The world today doesn’t make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do?”
Hissed by someone at the Guggenheim — only in New York, kids, only in New York.
