Zelda Rubinstein passed away today. The actress, best known for her portrayal of medium Tangina Barrons in the Poltergeist series, was taken off life support late last month after suffering lung and kidney failure while at Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles. She was 76.
Rubinstein acting credits also include Southland Tales, Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, Teen Witch, Anguish, Wishcraft, and David Kelly’s surreal small town TV drama “Picket Fences.”
Marvel Studios head of production Kevin Feige has indirectly confirmed the crime-fighting roster to Marvel’s upcoming superhero epic The Avengers.
In an interview with British sci-fi mag SFX, Feige says:
My only concern is that when we launch a franchise … whichever characters franchise that may be, it should stand on its own two feet. With Iron Man being the first one out of the gate, thank goodness thats what happend. Everyone loved it. Its our job to do the same with Thor and Captain America two years from now, so by the time The Avengers comes in 2012 its not just a team super hero moviewith a bunch of characters with powers, its three people, four including Hulk , five including Nick Fury-who you have seen before in other movies, coming together for the very first time.
Julianna Guill, better known as the hot topless chick in last year’s Friday the 13th reboot, has joined the cast of The Apparition, a Paranormal Activityripoff influenced thriller from director Todd Lincoln and Dark Castle Entertainment. Guill and her magnificent breasts will star alongside Twilight babe Ashley Greene and “Gossip Girl” bad-boy Sebastian Stan.
The Apparition is “based on a true story” and follows the plight of a young married couple tormented by ghosts after a college experiment goes inexplicably wrong. The film is set to go into production in February.
Check out Guill’s talents in the following clip from Friday the 13th (an extended version of the scene is available on the home editions):
