House of Cards Boss Beau Willimon Responds to My Biggest (and Pretty Much Only) Gripe About Season 3

8 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Warning: The following story contains spoilers about Season 3 of House of Cards. Proceed at your own risk.

I know House of Cards‘ third season left some fans feeling as cold as Claire Underwood’s average body temperature, but I, alas, was not one of them.

With the exception of the tedious, suspense-deprived, Doug-centric premiere, I found Season 3’s obsession with foreign affairs, gay rights and campaign dramaturgy to be endlessly watchable. I welcomed all of the new blood, particularly Boardwalk Empire vet Paul Sparks as Frank’s quasi-biographer/man crush Thomas Yates, with open arms. And I was particularly engrossed »

The Fosters Finale Claims a Victim — [Spoiler] No Longer a Series Regular

Warning: The following contains major spoilers for Monday’s The Fosters.

Although no ambulance had arrived on site when The Fosters‘ season finale concluded Monday night — seriously, how did the dispatcher know there was a fatality?! — it appears the car accident that closed the hour may have, indeed, taken a life.

Special Nationwide Theatrical Re-Release of 'Friday' Director’s Cut on April 20th + Reissue of Soundtrack on Vinyl

20 March 2015 6:27 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

The bad news for many of you is that, next month, F. Gary Gray’s "Friday," with Ice Cube and Chris Tucker, will be officially 20 years old, which means you’re getting older. But the good news is that, there are no plans (as yet) to do a remake (or rather, in the current jargon, a ”reboot”) of the movie, so you’re safe, for the time being. But to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the film, which officially opened on April 26, 1995, and to make a little more cash at the box office (the film grossed $42 million domestically, in 2015 dollars, and millions more on DVD and other platforms), New Line will be releasing "Friday" again, in theaters.  But this »

"Rush Hour" Series Nabs Its Other Lead

14 March 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Justin Hires ("21 Jump Street," "Key and Peele") is set to play Carter, the role which Chris Tucker made famous, in CBS' TV adaptation of the hit "Rush Hour" movie franchise.

He joins British actor Jon Foo ("Tekken," "Vikingdom," "The Protector") who is taking on the role of Detective Lee which Jackie Chan played in the films.

Hires' Carter is an irreverent bad-boy detective who uses unorthodox methods to get results. He also has no interest in a partner, but is forced to work with a stoic, by-the-book Hong Kong police detective assigned to a case in Los Angeles.

Bill Lawrence and Blake McCormick penned and will executive produce the show. "National Treasure" helmer Jon Turteltaub will direct the pilot and executive produce as well.

'Rush Hour' TV Show Casts Justin Hires in Chris Tucker Role

14 March 2015 8:16 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Justin Hires, who has had bit parts in 21 Jump Street, Stomp the Yard and Key & Peele, has taken the second lead in CBS and Warner Bros. TV's Rush Hour pilot. He will take on the role of Carter, originated by Chris Tucker in the 1998 Rush Hour movie. The studio decided to go with two relatively unknown actors to headline the show, also casting Jon Foo, best known for the video adaptation Tekken, in the Jackie Chan role of Lee.

Justin Hires reportedly beat out quite a few well known actors for the role of Carter, though none of the other hopefuls were mentioned by name. The studio wanted to go with unknowns, as they felt the roles were too closely associated with Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker. Jon Turteltaub, known for the National Treasure franchise, will helm the pilot and is an executive producer, alongside writers and executive producers Bill Lawrence and Blake McCormick. »
