Find Out Why Charlie Sheen Is Reprising His 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' Character

18 December 2014 2:35 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

When most people hear the name Charlie Sheen, they invariably think of Two and a Half Men and that strange stretch in 2011 when he was all about #tigerblood and #winning. However, the older amongst us remember a younger, purer Charlie Sheen – the devil-may-care bad boy of the Brat Pack who stole Jennifer Grey’s heart in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Now, three decades later, Sheen is reprising that role for a whole new generation. The actor is set to appear on an upcoming episode of ABC’s comedy series The Goldbergs, where he’ll run into series regular Hayley Orrantia in a police station as the show pays homage to the beloved John Hughes film. Charlie looks a little rougher around the edges than he did back in the 1980s, but it’s still...

Charlie Sheen Brings 'Ferris Bueller' Role to 'Goldbergs'

18 December 2014 8:18 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since The Goldbergs debuted on ABC last year, the hit comedy series, which is set in the 1980s, has referenced several hit movies and TV shows, such as Star Wars, Say Anything, The Goonies and an episode from earlier this month that involves the hoverboard from Back to the Future Part II. People reports that the show will continue that tradition in the second half of Season 2, with an upcoming Ferris Bueller's Day Off episode that will guest star Charlie Sheen, paying homage to his role as "Boy in Police Station." The first photos have been released from this episode, set to air in early 2015, which shows Charlie Sheen interacting with Hayley Orrantia's Erica.

The episode will follow Barry (Troy Gentile), who decides to skip school one day to create his own epic "day off." Barry's plans go severely awry, and when Pops (George Segal) and Adam (Sean Giambrone »

Charlie Sheen Is Reprising His Famous Ferris Bueller's Day Off Cameo

17 December 2014 2:49 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Charlie Sheen sees your Ducky outfit, Jon Cryer, and raises you. Sheen is set to guest-star on an upcoming episode of the '80s-set The Goldbergs, and he's reviving his famous part from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The 1986 spot was one of Sheen's first roles, and it was a small, but very memorable cameo as a drugged-out guy who Jeanine Bueller (Jennifer Grey) meets at the police station. This time around, he encounters Erica (Hayley Orrantia), who is trying to prove that her brother, Barry, is faking sick to miss school. The episode is set to air in early 2015, and if you don't already watch The Goldbergs, you should definitely at least plan on tuning in for this. Source: ABC »

Charlie Sheen reprising Ferris Bueller's Day Off role in The Goldbergs

17 December 2014 12:42 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Charlie Sheen will reprise his breakthrough role from Ferris Bueller's Day Off in an upcoming episode of The Goldbergs.

Sheen had a single memorable scene in director John Hughes's 1986 comedy as a burnout who meets Jennifer Grey in a police station.

His appearance in the 1980s-set Goldbergs will come in a 2015 episode that pays tribute to Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Barry Goldberg (Troy Gentile) becomes inspired by the classic movie and decides to fake being sick in order to plan out his ultimate fantasy day.

His mother Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) catches wind of Barry's antics from his sister Erica (Hayley Orrantia), commandeers a vehicle from her new job and gives chase.

Sheen's current television schedule includes wrapping up his FX comedy series Anger Management with 'Charlie & The 100th Episode' on December 22.

He is also rumoured to be returning to Two and a Half Men for the show's finale next year. »

Tommy Lee Jones Said Really Mean Things To Jim Carrey During Batman Forever

29 October 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Sometimes a movie duo works fabulously together onscreen, but the two utterly loathe each other offscreen. Rumor has it this was the case for Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart on Sabrina, Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey on Dirty Dancing, and even Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling on The Notebook. Well, add Batman Forever's dastardly duo of Tommy Lee Jones and Jim Carrey to this list. It turns out Jones loathed Carrey, and had no trouble letting it be known. While promoting his upcoming Dumb and Dumber To, Jim Carrey appeared on Howard Stern's show for a lengthy interview. About 55 minutes in, talk turns to Carrey's time playing the Riddler in Joel Schumacher's Batman Forever, in which Tommy Lee Jones co-starred as Two-Face. Well, it turns out Jones was less than thrilled to be sharing scenes with the comedian, and wasn't shy about letting Carrey know. According to Carrey, »

British Superstar's Last Film Role Marred by Overtight Clothes, Fake Accent

28 October 2014 5:06 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Ivor Novello last film: 'Autumn Crocus' (photo: Ivor Novello and Fay Compton in 'Autumn Crocus') Can a plain looking, naive spinster school teacher ever find real love in faraway places? This was a question asked by Shirley Booth in Arthur Laurents' 1952 stage play The Time of the Cuckoo; Katharine Hepburn in the 1955 David Lean-directed film version, Summertime (1955); and Elizabeth Allen in the 1965 Richard Rodgers-Steven Sondheim musical adaptation, Do I Hear a Waltz? Can such a woman's yearning for romance ever be satisfied? "Yes" and "No," according to Basil Dean's fine 1934 British film Autumn Crocus, which marked the last film appearance of British stage and screen superstar Ivor Novello (Alfred Hitchcok's The Lodger). Autumn Crocus starts out during the holiday season, when two British schoolteachers decide to spend their vacation together on the Continent. Soft-hearted Jenny Grey (Fay Compton) longs to see the Austrian Alps, »
