Morris Chestnut: The Best Man Wedding A “Complete Departure” From Previous Films

25 July 2014 12:31 PM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Morris Chestnut was busy fending off fans at Comic-Con yesterday, where he promoted his new TNT miniseries Legends. When not talking up his show with Sean Bean (aka: the star one of the most iconic Game of Thrones scene ever), he gave us a little scoop on what fans can expect from the just-announced Best Man threequel, out April 2016. Chestnut says writer/director Malcolm Lee told him The Best Man Wedding is “a complete departure” from the first two films.

What could it mean?! No more New Edition lip-syncing performances?! Don’t do that to us, guys! We also asked what’s up with his character, Lance, who ended the last film [spoiler alert!] delivering his best friends’ baby in the back of an SUV immediately following his wife’s funeral. Chestnut fills us in about Legends and the Best Man Wedding, above. »

23 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Malcolm D. Lee‘s crowd-pleasing and big money-earning The Best Man franchise is bound for trilogy designation, as Universal has just announced that the third film in the series will arrive in 2016. Deadline reports that The Best Man Wedding – wait, is it the wedding of the best man? who is his best man? maybe they should have thought about these titles a bit more — will arrive on April 15, 2016, reuniting the sprawling cast to participate in (what else!) a big time wedding. Lee is back on board to write and direct the feature, and the franchise’s many cast members — including Morris Chestnut, Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Harold Perrineau and Melissa De Sousa — are all expected to come back for more. Monica Calhoun will probably, um, not be back. Now that the blockbuster series is moving into pretty firm franchise territory, is it time for you to get on board? Well »

23 July 2014 7:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After The Best Man Holiday, a star-studded follow-up to 1999′s The Best Man, became a huge hit last November, Universal must have realized what a hit it had on its hands. Now, the studio has set a third installment, titled The Best Man Wedding, for release on April 15th, 2016.

Firstly, The Best Man Holiday, budgeted at $17 million, had a terrific $30 million opening weekend and went on to bcome the fifth most successful R-rated romantic comedy of all time. Secondly, it received a stunning A+ CinemaScore across all quadrants. And finally, it starred an embarassment of in-demand stars including Taye Diggs, Terrence Howard, Harold Perrineau, Morris Chestnut, Monica Calhoun, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Melissa De Sousa and Regina Hall. All of those actors are expected to be back for The Best Man Wedding.

Sean Bean swaps identities in new 'Legends' trailer

18 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

In TNT’s upcoming undercover-espionage thriller Legends, Sean Bean plays Martin Odum, a deep-cover operative who’s uniquely adept at adopting new identities. Perhaps predictably, there are an awful lot of people who want to kill him—and that’s the least of his problems. The show debuts on August 13, but EW is excited to share an exclusive new trailer for the series, which hints at the show’s twisty serialized arc, plus a look at Legends co-stars Ali Larter, Tina Majorino, Steve Harris, and Morris Chestnut. Yes, Sean Bean says, “Move, and I’ll blow your teeth out.” No, »

TNT Takes San Diego Comic-Con to the Airport

11 July 2014 10:48 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Comic-Con continues to find new ways to spread out from the San Diego Convention Center.

Having already flowed into the lawn outside and into area hotels, the airport is the next takeover target for Hollywood’s TV networks and studios turning to the fanfest each year to promote their newest projects.

TNT will plaster the San Diego Intl Airport’s baggage claim carousels, escalators and skyway bridges with images and other messaging for its upcoming series “Legends,” starring Sean Bean, Ali Larter, Morris Chestnut and Tina Majorino (see below). Show premieres Aug. 13.

From there, the marketing campaign will also appear around the city’s Gaslamp Quarter, including a giant billboard covering the side of the Marriott Hotel, next to the convention center.

Naturally, there’s also a social media component. The network is encouraging fans of actor Sean Bean to use the hashtag #DontKillSeanBean in social media postings about the show. »

Nurse Jackie Season 5 Blu-Ray Review

7 July 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Nurse Jackie Season 5 Blu-Ray Review

The fifth season of Nurse Jackie is a somewhat unique spin in the world of TV series, because the premise of the show is turned upside-down. While Edie Falco has spent four seasons winning critical acclaim as titular, drug-addicted nurse who has to find a way to make all the facets of her life work, the writers correctly determined that it was time that the gimmick made some new movies. Thus, the fifth season has Jackie sober, and quickly approaching the one-year anniversary of her sobriety.

With her marriage falling apart, her job resting on a very precarious perch, and her ability to effectively don a parental role, Jackie has an entirely new set of problems to manage, and coping isn’t necessarily something she’s great at… depending on how you mean that.

Of course, when your personal life is in a shambles, your »

The actor is reportedly attached to star in the Sony/Screen Gems revenge thriller titled The Perfect Guy, which will be directed by Sylvain White - another name we haven't heard mentioned (Stateside anyway) in some time (he's been busy in France though, as readers of this blog will know).

Sean Bean, Ali Larter, Showrunner David Wilcox, and More Talk New TNT Spy Series Legends, Deviations from the Books, and More at WonderCon

23 April 2014 6:52 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

This August, TNT will premiere an intense new series from the producers of Homeland, centered around the FBI’s elite Deep Cover Operations (Dco) division.  Based on the book by spy novelist Robert Little, Legends stars Sean Bean as FBI agent Martin Odum, a specialist who can transform himself into anyone he needs to be.  His alternate identities, called “legends,” are so complex and thoroughly established that they almost take on lives of their own.  The show also stars Ali Larter as a fellow operative who has a history with Martin, Tina Majorino as technical expert Maggie Pool, and Morris Chestnut as another agent investigating Martin’s involvement in a murder case. The cast made an appearance at WonderCon last weekend, along with showrunner David Wilcox (Fringe), to talk about what audiences can expect from the show and, naturally, whether the infamously death-prone (on screen, at least) Bean will actually »

WonderCon: Legends Panel Recap; TNT Offers First Look at New Spy Drama Starring Sean Bean

20 April 2014 3:02 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Premiering August 13th on TNT is Legends, a new espionage thriller developed for TV by three-time Emmy award winner Howard Gordon (24, Homeland).  Legends stars Sean Bean as Martin Odum, an exceptional deep-cover operative in the FBI.  Every persona Martin assumes becomes one of his "legends", and Martin has an extraordinary empathy that allows him to move in and out of these personas with ease, but when a stranger calls into question everything he believes, Martin begins to wonder if his entire identity is merely another construct of the FBI. Bean joined cast mates Ali Larter, Tina Majorino, and Morris Chestnut, and Showrunner/Executive Producer David Wilcox on stage at WonderCon this weekend to preview a couple clips and discuss what audiences can expect from the new espionage thriller.  Check out a full Legends WonderCon panel recap after the jump, which includes my rundown of the footage and bullet point highlights from the panel conversation. »

Nurse Jackie’s Merritt Wever on Her Emmy Acceptance Speech, That Office Chair Gag, and Zoey’s Love Life

14 April 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For five seasons, Merritt Wever’s eager young nurse, Zoey Barkow — the teddy-bear-scrubs-wearing protégée of Edie Falco’s drug-addicted Robin Hood–like nurse at a struggling New York hospital — has provided nearly all of the comedy in Showtime’s “dramedy” Nurse Jackie. Last year, Wever was awarded for her comic gifts with an Emmy — which shocked her into near silence, as she delivered what was perhaps the shortest acceptance speech in TV history.Nurse Jackie’s sixth season premiere aired last night and Vulture met with Wever in a Brooklyn café to discuss, among other things, Zoey’s surprising new romance with sexy but abrasive ER doctor Ike Prentiss (Morris Chestnut), an affair that might distract her from her usual self-imposed mission to keep watch over the tenuous sobriety of the freshly divorced Jackie. The New York City–born-and-bred actress told us right off that she’s nothing like Zoey: »

John Singleton accuses Hollywood of ignoring black directors

25 March 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Boyz N The Hood director says black culture depicted on film has been 'homogenised'

• 12 Years a Slave 'could be a game changer for black directors'

The Oscar-nominated director of Boyz N the Hood, John Singleton, has accused Hollywood of failing to help black film-makers make their way in the industry.

Speaking to students at Loyola Marymount university in La as part of The Hollywood Masters interview series, 46-year-old Singleton said studios were happy to cover stories with an African American theme but did not see why they should find black directors to take charge of them. "They want black people [to be] what they want them to be. And nobody is man enough to go and say that," he said. "They want black people to be who they want them to be, as opposed to what they are. The black films now — so-called black films now — they're great. They're great films. But they're just product. »
