Ultimately, however, Frank Sinatra – then a has-been following a string of box office duds – was cast for a pittance, getting beaten to a pulp by a pre-stardom Ernest Borgnine.

Richard Dreyfuss suing Disney over What About Bob? profits

10 April 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Richard Dreyfuss is taking legal action against Disney over his share of profits from 1989 movie What About Bob?.

1991's Turner & Hooch is also part of the action, with Christine Wagner, the widow of that movie's producer, arguing that she is entitled to 50% of its profits.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pair filed a complaint at the Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday (April 9), claiming that Disney refused to hire their chosen auditor.

They want an investigation into how net profits have been calculated by Disney's auditors.

Their complaint reads: "There are very few firms that regularly audit the Studios. The so-called 'Big Four' accounting firms have no reputation for or competence in this regard.

"These few firms that do have the relevant expertise include: Robinson Inc; Green Hasson Janks; Hacker Douglas & Company; and Nigro Karlin Segal Feldstein & Bolno."

Dreyfuss and Wagner's auditor of choice was David J Robinson's company Robinson Inc, »

Richard Dreyfuss Sues Disney Over ‘What About Bob?’ Profits

9 April 2015 7:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Richard Dreyfuss has filed suit against The Walt Disney Co., in a case that takes aim at studio accounting practices by claiming that Disney is refusing to allow a firm that specializes in profit participation audits to examine the company’s returns from “What About Bob?

Dreyfuss is joined in the lawsuit by Christine Turner, who is seeking an audit of the returns from “Turner and Hooch,” which was produced by her late husband, Raymond Wagner.

Dreyfuss and Turner each claim that Disney is refusing to allow their chosen auditor, Robinson and Co., to conduct the examination, on the grounds that it must be done by a “national firm of reputable CPAs, the selection of which is subject to [Disney’s] approval not to be unreasonably withheld.”

The plaintiffs contend that the nationally recognized big four accounting firms don’t have experience in studio audits, while a handful of smaller and more specialized firms like Robinson do. »

'Your Family or Mine' star Kyle Howard on how his new TBS comedy isn't 'My Boys'

7 April 2015 4:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sometimes it seems like I spend a disproportionate amount of my life talking with actors about the differences between single-cam and multi-cam comedies. Here's another of those interviews. TBS and Sony Pictures TV's "Your Family or Mine" returns star Kyle Howard to the network and studio behind "My Boys," which had a well-regarded four-season run (but somehow aired only 49 episodes, which surprised me a little) ending in 2010. In November, I sat down with Howard on the "Your Family or Mine" set to talk about whether he feels any continuity between his earlier sitcom and the new one -- this was before a new creative administration took over at TBS -- and how the difference between single-cam and multi-cam comedies impact him. Howard agreed with co-star Kat Foster that the two leads have a very good chemistry and that that kind of chemistry is both rare and lucky. He also explains »

'Your Family or Mine' star Kat Foster on the Myth of Romantic Chemistry

7 April 2015 12:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Kyle Howard has made his "Your Family or Mine" co-star Kat Foster believe in love, or at least believe in on-screen chemistry. "I never totally bought the idea of 'chemistry,' like 'romantic chemistry.'" Foster told me. "I always thought like,'"Oh well if you’re a nice and sweet person with some kind of charm you can probably kind of have chemistry with anyone.' And I thought that for a while and then as we’ve shot the show I’ve started to buy chemistry because I truly feel that Kyle and I really have a genuine kind of simpatico that is actually very, very rare to find with someone you’re playing opposite." All together now: "Awww..." The conceit of "Your Family or Mine" is that Foster's Kelli and Howard's Oliver are married. Each episode alternates between the couple's interactions with her family -- »

Interview: 'Your Family or Mine' star Richard Dreyfuss on TV's draw - 'Money'

3 April 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Richard Dreyfuss doesn't need to play any reindeer games. An Oscar winner and one of the world's biggest movie stars for two decades, Dreyfuss has only periodically popped up on the big or small screens in recent years because he's been concentrating his efforts on overhauling the way American children are taught civics and serving as Senior Associate Member of St. Anthony's College in Oxford. While his recent credits have been sparse, I've talked to Dreyfuss several times in the past few years and the key is always to find what he wants to discuss, even if it isn't necessarily the project he's promoting.  So with the 2012 A&E adaptation of "Coma," it certainly wasn't "Coma," but it could have been the shift in interactions between actors and directors over the years and whether or not TV is more actor-friendly. With this winter's Sundance debut of "Zipper," it was the political backdrop to the thriller. »

Remembering Sidney Lumet

1 April 2015 4:42 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

April 9th will mark the four year anniversary of director Sidney Lumet's passing, at age 86. Lumet was the first director I interviewed whose one-sheet posters hung on my wall as a kid. He was an idol, an icon, and an inspiration. I wasn't yet 30 in April 1997, when I met him at The Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills for our interview at the press junket for "Night Falls On Manhattan," one of his solid, authentic urban dramas that blended crime, politics and personal revelations that became his signature.

Lumet immediately put any butterflies I had at ease. Diminutive, but with the infectious energy of a teenager, his was a disarming presence. He paid me a compliment on my sportcoat, saying that I looked a bit like the young Mickey Rourke (which I still don't see, but what the hell), then went on to regale me for an hour with »

The Weekend Read: Autism in entertainment from 'Rain Man' to 'Community'

28 March 2015 8:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Weekend Read: Our Saturday essay on the great topics in entertainment and culture today. Last weekend, as Toshi was cruising the Blu-ray shelves for new movies to start asking about, he pulled "Rain Man" on a shelf and considered the cover for a moment before he turned to me, excited. "You didn't tell me Tom Cruise made a superhero movie!" I can only assume his eventual disappointment might be tempered by the fact that "Rain Man" is a pretty good movie. It had been a while since I'd seen it, though, and after they went back to their mom's house, I put it in to watch it. I remember when it came out being right in the midst of my first time watching a lot of classic filmographies, and more than anything, I enjoyed the film as a match-up between Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. Looking at the film, »

Watch Ariana Grande Crack Up Jimmy Fallon During "Ew!"

23 March 2015 8:28 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Jimmy Fallon has welcomed a ton of guests to the "Ew!" couch over the years, and the latest is Ariana Grande. She made a surprisingly funny appearance as Alexa Armstrong, one of Sara's best friends. They practice singing and have an impromptu visit from Gary, Sara's stepdad, and Alexa shocks Sara by claiming that Richard Dreyfuss isn't "ew!" They definitely crack up, and it's reminiscent of Fallon's days on Saturday Night Live. Check it out, and if you think this is funny, watch her Celine Dion impression and wait until we get a better look at Grande's acting chops when Scream Queens hits the small screen this Fall! »

Ariana Grande and Jimmy Fallon Have an 'Ew!' Sing-Off

20 March 2015 10:06 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Ariana Grande channeled her roots as a Nickelodeon star on Friday, appearing on the Tonight Show and taking part in one of Jimmy Fallon’s signature sketches: tween talk show "Ew!"

Grande played Alexa in the sketch, "bestie" to Fallon’s character Sara (with no "h," because "h’s are ew"). The two performed their secret handshake and snapped a "bffelfie," a.k.a. a "best friends forever selfie," before competing in a new segment: The "Ew!" Sing-off!

It's time to take a Bff-elfie! #FallonTonight pic.twitter.com/Ei13IY6fqv

Grande busted out one of her signature vocal riffs on the sketch's titlular exclamation, but Fallon's character was less than impressed.

"That was okay, I guess," he shrugged.

Star Wars Actor Ford Injured in Plane Accident in Los Angeles Area

5 March 2015 4:43 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground. As explained in the Los Angeles Times, "fire officials would not identify the victim of the crash but said he was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived." Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »

10 things you (probably) didn’t know about The Sound of Music

1 March 2015 9:30 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s hard to believe, but The Sound of Music celebrates its 50th anniversary today. The Julie Andrews musical is one of the most memorable movies of all time. It’s also one of the most famous -- a bonafide classic that won five Oscars and an avalanche of critical acclaim. It’s perhaps no surprise then that the film is still enchanting audiences half a century on from its original release.

So to celebrate its big day – and because trivia really is one of our favourite things – here are ten things you probably didn’t know about The Sound of Music.

 

1. Christopher Plummer didn’t like the film

The film is beloved by generations of film fans, but one major Sound of Music naysayer? Christopher Plummer, one of the classic's biggest stars. The man who became famous for playing Mr. Von Trapp referred to the film as "The Sound of Mucus" whilst on set. »
