Welcome to Toni Collette Online, your premiere web resource on the Australian actress and singer. Best known for her iconic performances in "Muriel's Wedding", "The Sixth Sense", "United States of Tara" and "Hereditary", Toni Collette has emerged as one of her generation's greatest talents. In its 13th year online, his unofficial fansite provides you with all latest news, in-depth information on all of her projects on film, television and the theatre as well as extensive archives with press articles, photos and videos. Enjoy your stay.
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.
It’s very quiet around Toni right now, despite shooting “Unlocked” with Noomi Rapace in London, it’s a very low-profile time. So what better chance to get your collection up to date with some recent and upcoming releases of her productions this year. Already released is “Tammy”, the Melissa McCarthy comedy which has Toni in a cameo (of all the recent projects, this one can be surely skipped!). Then, there’s “The Boxtrolls”, which will be released on January 20, 2015 on various mediums. And on February 09, “Hector and the Search for Happiness” will be released in the United Kingdom (it will be released earlier in Germany, on January 22). Click any of the previews below to be forwarded to Amazon for a pre-order.
New Line Cinema will release the extended cut of “Tammy” on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack Nov. 11. You can pre-order it on Amazon. The extended cut of the film runs 100 minutes, compared to the theatrical version’s 96-minute runtime. On both iTunes and Amazon, the high definition download of the film goes for $19,99, while the standard definition is $14.99. Only with an iTunes HD download will you receive extras like more deleted scenes, a gag reel, featurettes chronicling the film’s funny laughs and gags, and a look at McCarthy and Falcone’s own cross-country road trip. Since opening July 2, the film, shot in the region in May 2013, has grossed $84 million.
Three new clips have been added to the video archive. Two promotional interviews on the sets of “Hector and the Search for Happiness” and “Tammy”, as well as the marketing featurette for the latter. Many thanks to Claudia for helping me with the “Tammy” interview. Much appreciated. Screencaptures from both interviews have been added to the photo gallery as well.

It’s great to see Toni being so busy in film right now. Today, an international trailer for “Hector and the Search for Happiness” has been released, alongside with two production stills from the upcoming “Tammy”. And what a great surprise to see her film-husband in the image: “The Way, Way Back” director Nat Faxon. You can watch the trailer and new stills by clicking the previews below.
A couple of movie posters for the upcoming comedy “Tammy” have been released, alongside the film’s official synopsis, which can be found below. Edit: Another bunch of movie posters have been added.
Tammy (McCarthy) is having a bad day. She’s totaled her clunker car, gotten fired from her thankless job at a greasy burger joint, and instead of finding comfort at home, finds her husband getting comfortable with the neighbor in her own house. It’s time to take her boom box and book it. The bad news is she’s broke and without wheels. The worse news is her grandma, Pearl (Sarandon), is her only option—with a car, cash, and an itch to see Niagara Falls. Not exactly the escape Tammy had in mind. But on the road, with grandma riding shot gun, it may be just what Tammy needs.
Joining Oscar® nominee Melissa McCarthy (“Bridesmaids”) and Academy Award® winner Susan Sarandon (“Dead Man Walking,”) are: Allison Janney (“The Help”) playing Tammy’s world-weary mom, Deb; Gary Cole (“Pineapple Express,” TV’s “VEEP”) as ladies man Earl; and Mark Duplass (TV’s “The Mindy Project”) as his son, Bobby; with Dan Aykroyd (“The Campaign”) as Don and Academy Award® winner Kathy Bates (“Misery,” “Midnight in Paris”) as Pearl’s fun-loving cousin Lenore. Rounding out the cast are Toni Collette (“Little Miss Sunshine”) in the role of the neighbor, Missi; and Nat Faxon (“Bad Teacher”) as Tammy’s husband, Greg.
The screenplay is by Melissa McCarthy & Ben Falcone. Will Ferrell (“The Campaign”) and Adam McKay (“The Campaign”) are producing the film with McCarthy. Rob Cowan, Falcone, Chris Henchy, Kevin Messick, Toby Emmerich, Richard Brenner and Michael Disco are serving as executive producers. The behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Russ Alsobrook (“Paul Blart: Mall Cop”), production designer Jefferson Sage (“This is 40”), and editor Mike Sale (“Bridesmaids”). The music is composed by Michael Andrews (“Bad Teacher”).
Scheduled for release on July 2, 2014, “Tammy” is a presentation of New Line Cinema and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment company.
