Mel and Madeline Stowe in Santa Monica
Yesterday afternoon Mel and We Were Soldiers co-star Madeline Stowe were spotted having a stroll after lunch in Santa Monica. They both look relaxed and enjoying one another's company. Nice to see they stayed in touch after all this time.
Madeline is currently starring in the ABC hit series Revenge where she plays the conniving Victoria "Queens of the Hamptons" Grayson. Last month the show was renewed for a second second -- congrats!
Thanks to Zimbio, I've added the photos to the gallery. Enjoy!

Fury Road is Mad Max Reboot
Last month at the Cannes Film Festival, Empire caught up with Tom Hardy to talk about George Miller's long-awaited fourth Mad Max film. When asked about the film's start date, Tom answered, "Who knows? It's cool to be elusive with dates."
Charlize Theron told Shock she's headed to Nambia, Africa later this month and shooting on Fury Road is set for mid-July. Her enthusiasm about the film screams volumes: "I'm very excited about it; I'm fucking dying! It's been three years; it's time to skin this cat already!"
Mad Max: Fury Road was set to start production in Broken Hill, Australia until extraordinary rains turned ...
Mel on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno & Backstage
Mel made a visit to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Friday night to promote Get the Gringo. He talked about Lucia, cooking and even joked about the recorded rant Joe Eszterhas made public. Interestingly enough, he mentioned the film had a theatrical release deal, however, he chose to premiere it via DirecTV.
Mom told me about this at the last minute, but I was out and couldn't post an update or watch the show. She found Mel was very charming--goes to show, regardless of the controversy, the man can still make you laugh!
Remember, Get The Gringo is available ...

Robert Rodriguez “Chasing Cast” For Machete 2
Mike Fleming of Deadline posted the official press release for Sin City 2 and reports director Robert Rodriguez (FYI: Future Husband #2) is "chasing cast" for Machete 2 ("Machete Kills"), which includes Michelle Williams and Mel Gibson!
I'm a huge fan of Robert's films (and his book Rebel Without a Crew). If you haven't seen it, Machete is full of action, parodies 1970's exploitation films and has a loyal, eager fanbase. The project could be right for Mel - maybe even poke fun of himself (LET'S BE REAL HERE!).
Below is the official trailer that stars Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, ...
Mel Meets The Kid: New ‘Get the Gringo’ Clip
A new scene from Get the Gringo is available via Digital Spy. A 10-year-old boy, played by Kevin Hernandez, and Driver (Mel) meet. Throughout the movie, he helps Driver survive in a Mexican prison. Kevin really holds his own beside Mel.
Interview with Mel at ‘Mad Max’ Event
The Los Angeles Times posted a video of Geoff Boucher interviewing Mel at last month's Mad Max Marathon at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.
They discuss Mad Max's influence in pop culture (i.e. music videos), George Miller as a director, joke about TMZ, working with Tina Turner, how the new Mad Max will be "more pure," Tom Hardy is a "firecracker," how the idea for the Viking film started... you get the point! They talk about a whole bunch of stuff you all might find interesting. Mel seemed relaxed and charismatic as usual.
