'94–'95 Is the Ultimate Law & Order Lineup

5 September 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As part of my epic, foolish project to list the 100 best episodes of the '94–'95 TV season, I spent a lot of time revisiting old favorites. And it was a real treat! Particularly fun was revisiting season five of Law & Order because I went through an actual spiritual shift that I never could have predicted. For as long as I can remember, Ben Stone was my favorite D.A. I like his whininess! But rewatching some of the '94–95 episodes — which are definitely among the series' best — I've been swayed. I am now Team Jack McCoy. And that makes the '94–'95 lineup My Ultimate Law & Order Cast. For the cop lineup, I'm Briscoe or bust; I live in a Jerry Orbach–or-Nothing world, as should you. I prefer Mike Logan (Chris Noth), though I can understand people who like Rey Curtis (Benjamin Bratt) and Ed Green (Jesse »

'24' Movie Still in the Works with Kiefer Sutherland

1 September 2014 3:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following this summer's return of Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer in the Fox event series 24: Live Another Day, the 24 movie is getting closer to happening.

Imagine Entertainment, the production company run by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, are "kicking around a new feature idea," a take that Imagine chairman Brian Grazer is "particularly keen on." The pitch hasn't been taken to 20th Century Fox yet, and it isn't known if they already have a writer attached or not.

Last month at Comic-Con 2014, 24: Live Another Day executive producer Jon Cassar revealed they are "still talking" about making a 24 movie, but it wasn't clear how if they had an idea in place or not.

However, it's possible that the movie plans may be complicated by the Fox network's possible plans for another 24 mini-series. While a 24: Live Another Day follow-up isn't officially in the works, Fox Networks Group Chairman »

Sherri Shepherd joins Ice Cube, Kevin Hart in Ride Along sequel

28 July 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sherri Shepherd has scored her first project since leaving ABC daytime talk show The View last month.

Shepherd is set to appear in the upcoming sequel of this year's cop comedy Ride Along, reports Deadline.

The first movie followed Kevin Hart's security guard character who goes on a police patrol ride with girlfriend Angela's (Tika Sumpter) brother (Ice Cube) to prove he is worthy of marrying Angela.

Shepherd will be joining new cast members Ken Jeong, Olivia Munn and Benjamin Bratt.

Jeong is cast as a woman-crazy computer hacker who becomes an asset to the criminal case at the centre of the sequel.

Last month, Shepherd announced her exit from The View after seven years.

She shared: "I am extremely grateful to Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie for giving me the opportunity. I look forward to the business opportunities that lay ahead for me and I am incredibly grateful »

28 July 2014 4:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one day before her final show as co-host of The View, Sherri Shepherd has signed on to star in the Universal Pictures comedy sequel Ride Along 2.

No details were given for her character, but she joins a cast that includes Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, Benjamin Bratt, Olivia Munn and Ken Jeong. No story details have been confirmed at this time, but we reported last month that the story will follow James Payton (Ice Cube) and Ben Barber (Kevin Hart) as they travel from Atlanta to Miami Beach for, "fun, chaos and shenanigans."

Tim Story is directing from a script by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi, with Ice Cube producing with his CubeVision partner Matt Alvarez alongside William Packer, Larry Brezner and Scott Bernstein. Production is already under way in Miami, with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart sending off the first video from the set earlier this month.

Sandra Bullock Turns 50! Her 9 Best Movies, Ranked

26 July 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Celebrating America's Sweetheart by remembering her greatest moments

It’s hard to believe Sandra Bullock is turning 50 years old today! Because really, it’s been that long and also, she looks ah-mazing!

But then if we take a step back, we remember that America’s Sweetheart has been entertaining us for over 25 years. Of course, there have been some missteps (let's not talk about All About Steve or Speed 2) but for the most part, her track record is solid. So solid, we’re having a hard time ranking them, but let’s give it a go anyway!

9. The Blind Side: An inspiring tale and one of the few times Sandy went blonde. Plus, she won her first Oscar for this so how could it not make the list?!

8. Gravity: This was not an easy movie. She literally had to carry the whole thing by herself and much of it was just closeups. Well, good thing »

24 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Let's get the Comic-Con 2014 live-blogging extravaganza started! Over the next four days, I'll be blogging and live-blogging on a slew of Comic-Con panels from Ballroom 20 and Hall H. Thursday will see a number of live-blogs, as I sit in Ballroom 20 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.  Let's start with "24," which returns to Comic-Con for the first time in years, bringing Kiefer Sutherland and promising many, many questions about the future of the franchise, as well as "24: Live Another Day." As recently as Sunday, Peter Rice said that no determinations had been made about whether "24" will live yet another day, but let's see if there were secrets being saved for San Diego... 10:01 a.m. The panel was supposed to start a minute ago, but people are still filing in. The room will be totally packed by the time we get going, I assume... The panel is just Kiefer Sutherland and Jon Cassar, »

24: Live Another Day – Episode 12 Review

17 July 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A teary Scott Davis reviews the finale to 24: Live Another Day…

After eleven weeks of nail-biting tension, dramatics, explosions, political stand-offs and terrorist threats, 24: Live Another Days has finally reached it’s explosive finale. Zooming across London Town across a 12-hour day (well, actually 24-hours), Lad has if nothing else reenergized and refreshed the show with a newfound gusto and delight. There is nothing better on television that seeing Kiefer Sutherland engage in full-on Jack Bauer: shooting, blasting and fighting through anyone who dares get in his way.

It has been quite the journey for the guys and girls involved with the story of Lad. Faced with unspeakable odds against drone attacks, devices that can aide terrorism, treason, and inter-government politics, it’s been classic 24, and it is with great sadness that this may well be the definitive final chapter in the life of Jack Bauer. Or, maybe not… »

First 'Ride Along 2' Set Video with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart!

12 July 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ride Along 2 isn't wasting any time! Production has already started in Miami with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, even though the first Ride Along only came out a little more than six months ago. The first installment of this hit comedy earned a whopping $134 million off a $25 million budget, so it's no wonder why a sequel is already deep into shooting.

The original followed security guard Ben, who goes on a ride along with his soon to be brother-in-law, decorated Apd detective James, with the hopes of impressing him before he makes that final move and proposes to his longtime girlfriend. This time around, Ben and James are on a new case in Miami, which promises to bring bigger laughs and more action than the first.

Check out Ice Cube and Kevin Hart as they offer a sneak peek at their new surroundings.

Ken Jeong Joining Kevin Hart to Make 'Ride Along 2' Even Louder

3 July 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Following the recent addition of Benjamin Bratt (Miss Congeniality, Snitch) to the cast of Ride Along 2, one more name has been added to the mix, and it's a recipe for one of the loudest films we might ever see. Ice Cube and Kevin Hart are already returning in the Universal action comedy sequel with Tim Story back in the director's chair. And now Deadline reports they'll be joined by Ken Jeong, better known as Mr. Chow from The Hangover trilogy or Chang in the NBC series "Community" (which just recently avoided death again). However, at this time, with no plot details, there's no word on who Jeong will play. More below! So far all we know about the sequel is that it's supposed to take place in Miami. Sounds like the perfect place for Jeong to be crazy and loud, something he does exceedingly well, which also makes him only tolerable in small doses. »

Ken Jeong Joins Ice Cube And Kevin Hart In Ride Along 2

3 July 2014 1:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though this year’s breakout comedy hit Ride Along was almost entirely the Ice Cube and Kevin Hart show, Universal’s upcoming sequel, Ride Along 2, has been putting together a pretty terrific supporting cast over the past few weeks. First, we heard that 24: Live Another Day actor Benjamin Bratt had come aboard in an unspecified role. Next, Attack of the Show! host and geek goddess Olivia Munn joined the cast, taking on the role of a tough Miami homicide detective who becomes the object of Detective James Payton’s (Cube) affection. Now, we’ve learned that The Hangover and Community star Ken Jeong has hitched a ride on the comedy sequel.

Jeong will play “a cocky computer hacker who fancies himself a ladies man but is also important in solving the case that Cube and Hart are working on.” The part is described as similar to Joe Pesci »

24: Live Another Day – Episode 10 Review

3 July 2014 11:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Scott Davis continues his look at the newest incarnation of 24, as the clock winds down on Live Another Day…

What’s the old Al Pacino quote: “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in”? While paraphrasing and changing the context slightly, a similar conceit could be attached to the latest episode of 24: Live Another Day. After the shock finale of episode eight, it seemed as though the show had not only outdone itself, but had outsmarted its viewers once again. But what transpired in the last episode only left those same viewers feeling cheated and slightly letdown. But once again, we were outsmarted, and hour ten is quite something.

The main thread to come from the aftermath of Margot Al-Harazi’s (Michelle Fairley) death was that she wasn’t the “ultimate big-bad” that everyone thought she was. Sure, she was responsible for hundreds of deaths »

Olivia Munn Joins Ride Along 2

1 July 2014 7:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Geek goddess Olivia Munn has a major supporting role in Scott Derrickson’s upcoming horror vehicle Deliver Us From Evil, but today brings news that the actress, who stars on HBO’s The Newsroom, will be brandishing her formidable comedic chops for her next big role. Universal has recruited Munn to join Kevin Hart and Ice Cube in 2016′s comedy sequel Ride Along 2.

Munn is said to be playing a tough Miami homicide detective who is  a love interest for Cube’s hard-boiled Detective James Payton. It’s exciting to see the talented actress come aboard – hopefully (?) she’ll have more to do than walk around in various states of undress, which was the extent of actress Tika Sumpter’s role in the first film. Plot details for the sequel, which finds Tim Story returning to direct, are hazy, but Variety reports that Ride Along 2 will find James »
