Welcome to Toni Collette Online, your unofficial web resource on the Australian actress and singer, best known for her film performances in "Muriel's Wedding", "The Sixth Sense" and "Little Miss Sunshine", as well as her Emmy and Golden Globe winning roles in "United States of Tara". For the past 11 years, Toni Collette Online has covered all latest news with detailed information and articles - and features extensive archives with over 50.000 images and videos. Enjoy your stay.
A bunch of video clips of Toni’s promotional visit to Sundance earlier this month have been posted to the video archive, including a first clip from “Glassland”. Among the new videos is a lenghty appearance on Larry King Now. Together with director Gerard Barrett, she talks about the film and spills some news on exciting future projects. Toni will be appearing on the next season “Who Do You Think You Are” and will be appearing in the screen adaptation of Tim Winton’s “Dirt Music” later this year. While nothing more has been announced, it can be assumed she’ll be playing the female lead. Georgie, the heroine of the book, becomes fascinated in watching a stranger attempting to poach fish in an area where nobody can maintain secrets for very long; disillusioned with her relationship with the local fisherman legend Jim Buckridge, she contrives a meeting with the stranger and soon passion runs out of control between two bruised and emotionally fragile people.
Toni Collette has received a nomination for the Australian Astra Award in the category of Most Outstanding Performance by an Actor Female for “Devil’s Playground”. She shares the category with Celia Ireland, Nicole da Silva , Pamela Rabe and Danielle Cormack – all for Wentworth’s second season. “Devil’s Playground” received a total of four nominations (Collette, Andrew McFarlane, Don Hany and Simon Burke). Winners will be announced on the evening of Thursday March 12, at the largest-ever ASTRA Awards in the 20-year history of Australian subscription television. The awards will be staged at The Star in Pyrmont.
Blu-Ray screencaptures of “Hector and the Search for Happiness” have been added as well. The film fares better than “Tammy” (see below), although it didn’t live up to my expectations. The cast is great, but if you’re watching this for Toni, you have to wait until the last half hour of the film. Again, besides the film captures there are also captures from the making of and deleted scenes. Enjoy.

Blu-Ray Screencaptures from “Tammy” have been added to the photo gallery. This has been one of the stupidest films I’ve seen in a long time. If Melissa McCarthy and her husband get a chance to write and film their own material, this is as good as it gets? Nevermind. Toni Collette has a “cameo” as the other woman, with barely any dialogue. I understand she probably did it as a favor to Ben Falcone, who played her husband in “Enough Said”, but this role could have been played by anyone. Besides the film captures, the outtakes have been captured as well.
Lots of additional pictures of Toni’s appearance at the Sundance Film Festival and its various discussion panels have been added to the photo gallery. Many thanks to Claudia for the wonderful contributions. A complete list can be found below the previews.

Here’s an article from the Sydney Morning Herald published last month for the Australian release of “A Long Way Down”. Toni Collette has never been afraid to transform herself for a role – she was launched onto the world stage, after all, as a chunky version of herself in Muriel’s Wedding – but as Maureen in A Long Way Down, which screens as part of the British Film Festival now touring the country, she seems almost to have shrunk inside her frumpy cardigan. The film was launched at the Berlin Film Festival, which is where we speak. The day after it debuts Collette is back up on the screen again in another film, the small American independent Lucky Them, playing a hipster rock journalist. In real life, she thrives on living out of a suitcase and is a big believer in embracing change. “If you try to put the brake on,” she says, “it’s all going to go to shit.” A somewhat less bumpy version of this message pervades A Long Way Down, which is adapted from Nick Hornby’s novel about four very disparate people who meet on a London rooftop one New Year’s Eve. They have all come to commit suicide. Each has his or her reason, but Maureen’s is the most poignant: she has a severely disabled son who would get much better care, she believes, if she were not there to look after him. Maureen is also isolated, friendless, overworked and terribly tired, a situation that starts to ease a little when the four would-be suicides form an unlikely gang. The full article can be read here.
