Denis Leary Hockey Comedy ‘Benders’ Ordered to Series at IFC

31 March 2015 8:16 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The Denis Leary-produced hockey comedy “Benders” has been ordered to series at IFC, the network announced Tuesday. The show follows several friends bound by an irrational obsession for their beer-swilling amateur hockey league. Their skills may be limited but their passion is not, as evidenced by the chaos hockey creates in their everyday lives.

Serpico and Sellitti created and will write the series. »

Calling Garfield "just perfect," the acting icon told me at the South by Southwest premiere of her indie drama Hello, My Name Is Doris, that he is the "most perfect fellow to work with, so I will miss him, but I'll find him." The movies also co-starred Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Denis Leary as her police captain dad and Martin Sheen as Peter's »

'Spider-Man': J.K. Simmons May Return as J. Jonah Jameson

31 January 2015 2:07 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One character The Amazing Spider-Man never got around to showing was fan-favorite J. Jonah Jameson, Peter's boss at the Daily Bugle. While it was rumored that Jim Carrey might play a new version of Jameson in the big screen reboot, there were also plenty of rumblings that J.K. Simmons may reprise the iconic role. Now, the actor has backed up these rumors, claiming he's heard about the possibility of a new project that could see him return.

In a recent interview with Howard Stern, the radio legend asked J.K. Simmons if he was every going to do another Spider-Man. His answer was not 'no'. In fact, the actor states:

"I just heard that we...that's a possibility."

Howard Stern follows this up by asking if he even wants to come back to once again play J. Jonah Jameson. The actor's response:

"Absolutely."

This is interesting, not just because he might return, »
