Berenger, Walsh to be honored at film festival

This year's Gasparilla International Film Festival is still lining up movies but already has two visiting movie stars locked in. Tom Berenger, top, and M. Emmet Walsh will receive career achievement awards at the fifth annual cinema showcase, slated for March 24-27 at various locations in Tampa. Berenger, 61, first gained fame in The Big Chill, earned an Oscar nomination for Platoon, kept Charlie Sheen in line in Major League and co-starred in last year's Inception. Walsh, 75, is one of Hollywood's most recognizable character actors, with nearly 200 roles in films and television, including Blade Runner, Blood Simple and Fletch. Festival passes ranging from $50 to $1,000 are available at www. giff2011.com, with individual event ticket sales starting on a date to be announced.
