Whatever your thoughts of Tim Burton's 2001 take on Planet of the Apes, one of the highlights was actor Michael Clarke Duncan's portrayal of the gorilla Attar. Duncan died today from complications following a heart attack he had two months ago. Genre fans also know him for his portrayal of the Kingpin in Daredevil, Manute in Sin City, Armageddon, and the Mission Impossible films. He was most recently seen in a cameo appearance at the end of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.
Although far from most people's favorites in the series, Tim Burton's 2001 production of Planet of the Apes was a box office success, despite its critial derision. In this video interview, that film's star, Mark Wahlberg, offers his feelings about the production.
TMZ.COM reports that Estella Warren (who played Daena in Tim Burton’s 2001 production of Planet of the Apes) will not be serving any jail time for allegedly driving while intoxicated — during which she allegedly crashed into three cars and actually tried to escape from police! The site reports that Warren was sentenced to 60 months of summary probation and has been ordered to attend an alcohol program for 18 months. She will also have to fork over $1,908 in costs and penalties. In a statement Warren said, “I take my actions and their consequences very seriously. I can’t express enough how grateful I am that no one was injured or hurt. Moving forward I am focusing all my efforts on my career, my family and being a good influence to others." Nova never had these problems. We're just sayin'.
