Oliver Hardy was terrifying, inspiring for John C. Reilly
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Playing Oliver Hardy, the large comic with the even larger persona, was a burden that became a mission for John C. Reilly.
The actor had early misgivings about becoming the man whose legendary partnership with Stan Laurel is explored in "Stan & Ollie," which will be released Friday in the United States by Sony Pictures Classics.
Review: Laurel and Hardy movie ‘Stan & Ollie’ is a joy
There are lot of movies in theaters right now trying to grab your attention, and dollars, from big superhero spectacles and musical extravaganzas to awards darlings and wannabes. It's easy to get overwhelmed with the options in the multiplex (and, frankly, at home) and when something like, say, a late-career Laurel and Hardy biopic comes along, you'd be forgiven for thinking it easy to dismiss, or at least put off for a little while.

Review: Phoenix and Reilly excel as ‘The Sisters Brothers’
Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly might not be obvious picks to play brothers, but French director Jacques Audiard made an inspired choice by casting them as such in "The Sisters Brothers ."
Phoenix, Reilly bond as outlaw kin in ‘Sisters Brothers’
TORONTO (AP) — To play any brother, by blood or not, of John C. Reilly is an intimidating prospect given just how firmly entrenched Will Ferrell is as Reilly's on-screen sibling.
"Step Brothers," their 2008 comedy classic that took the adolescent adult to absurdist extremes, looms large. It did even for Joaquin Phoenix in deciding to play Reilly's brother in "The Sisters Brothers," Jacques Audiard's Western. Phoenix considers "Step Brothers" one of his all-time favorites.

Benedict Cumberbatch returning as Sherlock? It’s a mystery
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Benedict Cumberbatch had a ready answer when asked when he might star in another "Sherlock" on PBS.
"Goodbye," he said, pleasantly, as he darted out of camera range during a satellite Q&A Wednesday.
In the 2008 movie "Step Brothers," John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell play lazy grown men (Brennan and Dale) who live with their parents and refuse to get jobs. Dale's father, Robert, finally yells: "All right, that's it! You two guys leave me no choice. No television for a week!" In an otherwise not-so-funny movie, that's a pretty funny line.
