HOLLYWOOD – No one is sure how it began but the violent feud between Geoffrey Rush and William H. Macy has now entered its seventh year, with both actors ignoring calls from various famous luminaries to bury the hatchet.

‘The only hatchet I’ll be burying,’ said the fuming Fargo star, ‘will be a very literal hatchet in the back of that asshole’s cranium.’    

Hollywood commentator Xavier Poulis observed:

The tragedy is the two were very good friends for a long time. When they starred with Ben Stiller in Mystery Men there was a party atmosphere on the set and they would frequently go out drinking, paint-balling and hover-rafting together. But something along the way soured their relationship. To this day nobody knows what. 

John Travolta – a friend of both men – said: 

It breaks my heart. I’ve always looked on the two of them as the finest character actors of our generation. When I saw Shine I phoned up Gebeeza Razooks and said, you have to come to my place for a fish fry. Gebeeza came the next day and there he met Weeeeeeeee Maceron and a friendship developed.  

Over the past years the two actors have perpetrated a series of attacks on each other. These have gone from filling their respective trailers with manure and red M&Ms to garroting each other backstage prior to an important first night.

When will the fighting end? When will peace between the Rush and the Macy come? Only the Studio Exec knows. And he’s not telling.   


HOLLYWOOD – Following the success of Gravity, Alfonso Cuaron‘s new film comes down to earth with a bang in a new Dentist Thriller starring flavor of the moment Matthew McConaughey.

Although the setting is going to be a little more mundane the director has promised that it will be just as engrossing as the space walk joyride of his previous Oscar nominated effort.

Cuaron spoke to Studio Exec earlier today:

What I want is exactly the same sense of excitement and immersion. In the story Matthew McConaughey is a Beverly Hills dentist, the best of his kind and William H. Macy is a Mafia Godfather who has the worst toothache because he likes eating candy. And so he kidnaps the dentist who has to fix his teeth without causing any pain. The whole thing is done in one take. We go inside the mouth, outside, into the drill, out of the drill, around the surgery, into the tooth and round and round. It’s going to be like Rope. But better.

William H. Macy said he was looking forward to the shoot though it would call for him to keep his mouth open for three weeks. ‘I’m dedicated to my craft,’ Macy said. ‘But still I’m not looking forward to it.’

Cavity will be released in 2015.
