The two Tony Rome pictures are lively and fun and chock-ful of borderline offensive content, like smash-zooms into women's rear ends.

Julie Bowen Joins Melissa McCarthy’s Comedy ‘Life of the Party’

29 August 2016 12:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Modern Family” star Julie Bowen has joined New Line’s “Life of the Party” and will portray the enemy of Melissa McCarthy’s lead character.

New Line has given “Life of the Party” a prime summer release date of May 11, 2018. McCarthy will star while her husband Ben Falcone directs the film.

As with “The Boss,” McCarthy and Falcone wrote the script and are producing through their On the Way production company, along with Chris Henchy (“Daddy’s Home”). Details of the plot are being kept under wraps. The movie will be in the vein of the Rodney Dangerfield’s “Back to School.”

Production started last week in Atlanta. Cast members include Maya Rudolph, Gillian Jacobs, Debby Ryan, and “Animal Kingdom” star Molly Gordon.

Bowen has won two Emmys for her work on the ABC series “Modern Family.” Her movie credits include Rob Lowe’s drama “Knife Fight” and New Line’s 2011 comedy “Horrible Bosses. »

New Line Ensemble Comedy Life Of The Party Recruits Modern Family’s Julie Bowen

29 August 2016 11:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

New Line’s casting spree for ensemble comedy Life of the Party continues today, with The Hollywood Reporter bringing word that Modern Family star Julie Bowen has been cast as the nemesis of Melissa McCarthy’s central lead.

McCarthy, who is poised to once more collaborate with husband and writing partner Ben Falcone, will assume the role of a character named Deanna, with new recruit Matt Walsh playing her fictitious husband, Dan. Other than the fact New Line has likened its ensemble piece to Rodney Dangerfield’s Back to School, little is known about the core premise of Life of the Party. Then again, with production currently underway in Atlanta, expect some tangible details to begin emerging onto the interwebs very soon indeed – including how the dynamic between McCarthy’s lead and Bowen’s quasi-antagonist will shake out.

Rounding out that preliminary casting sheet are Maya Rudolph, Community star Gillian Jacobs, »

25 August 2016 11:21 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

This lady knows how to party better than all of us. 105-year-old Ivena Smailes asked for a gaggle of hot and sexy firefighters to show up at her birthday celebration. Not only did they show up, they climbed through the freakin' window to make their entrance. Did her party turn out the way she imagined? It looks like it! Ivena told ABC News, "It was great! Out of this world." Spirit Animal. Five firefighters showed up to her senior living center, climbing a ladder to the third floor to see her. Hot.  It looks like her 40 guests partook in some cake, and even enjoyed singers and dancers. Ivena, or Ivy for short, partied to her fave hits by Elvis, Al Johnson and Frank Sinatra. Honestly, this sounds »

Tony Black reviews Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor Vol. 2 – Fractures…

After their adventures in India, the Doctor and Clara return to her present – but danger is slipping through the cracks between universes, and London (and Unit!) have no defence against the Fractures! Will the Doctor risk all of reality to reunite a family – or sacrifice a good man to keep the multiverse spinning? Then, the Doctor gambles with his life in 1960s Las Vegas, as he and Clara must team up with gangsters in order to defeat an intergalactic crime syndicate – but is this one too many spins on the Doctor’s roulette wheel?

The second trade collection which badges up Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor comic run issues 6-10, following on from the previous ‘Terrorformer’, the second volume ‘Fractures’ collects three distinct stories of The Doctor and Clara Oswald, set roughly during the eighth season of Doctor Who »

[[tmz:video id="0_da9uf2bh"]] The Rock just posted a video showing him as the undisputed king of the set on "Fast 8" ... with Vin Diesel nowhere in sight.

The Girl from Ipanema: Brazil, Bossa Nova and the Beach review – all flowers, no favelas

1 August 2016 11:20 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

This look at the sultry world of a musical genre now often relegated to elevators could not have been more inoffensive if it tried. Plus: the Chelsea set act as if Brexit never happened

“Tall and tan and young and lovely …” Seven words are all you need for the most sophisticated of earworms to start whispering its sweet nothings into your ears. And ahhhh, it’s The Girl from Ipanema, the sonic equivalent of being caressed with a palm frond. In three minutes of exquisite American jazz-inflected samba, it contains everything that is the essence of bossa nova: babes bronzing on Copacabana beach, middle classes swaying in suburban 60s America, ice clinking in whisky, João Gilberto and Stan Getz, Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald, everything that is simple, soft, sultry, and beginning with “s”. All of which is swung out in abundance in The Girl from Ipanema: Brazil, Bossa Nova »

Gloria DeHaven, Star of Golden Age Movie Musicals, Dies at 91

1 August 2016 8:07 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Gloria DeHaven, who starred in classic movie musicals in the 1940s and ’50s — mostly for MGM, has died. She was 91.

The actress died Saturday in hospice care in Las Vegas, after suffering a stroke several months ago, her agent told Reuters.

“With Gloria DeHaven’s passing, we have lost another precious link to the classical cinema of yesteryear. Gloria was a talented actor and singer, and she will be sorely missed,” said SAG-aftra President Gabrielle Carteris.

DeHaven, who’s career spanned six decades, embodied Hollywood’s Golden Age with her spunk and charisma.

She made her big-screen debut as a child, playing Paulette Goddard’s younger sister, in Charlie Chaplin’s last silent movie, 1936’s “Modern Times.” DeHaven starred in more than two dozen films, including her breakout role in Lucille Ball’s “Best Foot Forward” (1943); “Two Girls and a Sailor” (1944) with Van Johnson, June Allyson, and Jimmy Durante; “Step Lively” (1944) with Frank Sinatra, giving »
