Challenge accepted, Mr. Jason Kennedy! Just a few short days after the E! News host challenged his co-worker to the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, Terrence Jenkins decided to man up for quite the soaking. "First of all Jason Kennedy, I hate you," Terrence joked.  "There will be roaches in your dressing room when you get back [from vacation]." Unfortunately, there was no way of getting out of this icy situation as Catt Sadler began pouring the giant bucket of water onto her friend's head.  Without any hesitation, Terrence nominated Marlon Wayans, Catt and Jesse Giddings to take the challenge next.

12 August 2014 5:29 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

• It looks like Mike Epps may finally get the chance to play legendary stand-up comedian Richard Pryor after all. The comic has emerged as the front-runner to play the part in a biopic for The Weinstein Company directed by Lee Daniels (The Butler). Epps was previously signed on to play Pryor back in 2005 and met with the late comedian while he was still alive to prepare for the role, but that project fell through. Epps reportedly beat out actors Michael B. Jordan, Nick Cannon, and Marlon Wayans after Wayans had also been previously attached to another Pryor film, this one »

Mike Epps Is the Front-Runner for Richard Pryor Biopic

12 August 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in January, it was being widely reported that Michael B. Jordan and Marlon Wayans were the two front-runners to play comedian Richard Pryor in the upcoming biopic Richard Pryor: Is It Something I Said? (though the title may have now changed). While both are still in contention, it looks like comedian Mike Epps has found his way to the front of the pack after an explosive audition won over everyone involved with the film.

Originally set to be directed by Bill Condon, Lee Daniels is now at the helm of this drama that will look at the tumultuous early days of Richard Pryor and his meteoric rise to stardom. Eddie Murphy had been interested in taking the lead at one point. The movie is now set up at The Weinstein Company.

Nick Cannon has also come in for auditions, with Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway rumored to be »

Mike Epps Is The Frontrunner To Star In The Richard Pryor Biopic

11 August 2014 10:41 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

A Richard Pryor biopic has been on Hollywood's to-do list for years, even though the project has repeatedly fallen apart in the hands of capable filmmakers and studios. Recently, Lee Daniels got involved, and the lead role became a part highly in-demand for a number of leading male comedians. But only now does it look like the production has found its star, and it's actually a very familiar face. Deadline reports that Mike Epps is the frontrunner to play Richard Pryor in the coming Lee Daniels-directed biopic. Epps reportedly blew Daniels away during auditions held at The Weinstein Company studios, beating out a list of contenders that included Michael B. Jordan, Marlon Wayans and Nick Cannon. Additionally, those actors might have been auditioning with Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway, both of whom are frontrunners to play Pryor's widow, Jennifer Lee Pryor. Epps was actually the first choice of Pryor »

Actor-comic Mike Epps has emerged as the front-runner to star as Richard Pryor in Lee Daniels' upcoming biopic about the comedian at The Weinstein Company.

No final decision had been reached but Epps reportedly delivered a smashing audition which has put him in front-runner position, however Wayans is not out of the running.

Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway are being floated about as potential actresses to play Pryor's widow, Jennifer Lee Pryor.

The actor had been in the mix for the part a while ago, and his name has emerged as such again. And the likes of Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson are being tossed around for the role of Pryor's widow, Jennifer Lee Pryor.[Deadline] This is should be probably be filed in the "Duh, no kidding" category, but "Star Wars: Episode 7" newcomer Daisy Ridley will be returning for "Star Wars: Episode 8" and "Star Wars: Episode 9," because obviously.

Explosive Test Makes Mike Epps Fave To Play Richard Pryor In Lee Daniels Pic

11 August 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: After blowing away everybody with his audition, actor-comic Mike Epps has emerged as the front-runner to star as Richard Pryor in the biopic that Lee Daniels will direct at The Weinstein Company. Daniels has been in TWC headquarters working with and auditioning a group of young actors that has included Epps, Michael B. Jordan, Marlon Wayans, and Nick Cannon, with Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway the names I’ve heard to play Pryor’s widow, Jennifer Lee Pryor. I can only imagine what it must mean to several of these guys to get the role and play the stand-up comedian they grew up revering before they themselves succeeded onstage. It’s especially poignant for Epps and Wayans, because each one was signed to play Pryor in prior incarnations of the movie that fell apart.

Wayans had the job in the last version of the comic legend’s story when »

11 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"Locke"

What's It About? Tom Hardy stars as a construction foreman who's driving to London to attend the birth of his child. You really shouldn't have stressful conversations on your cell while driving, but Ivan (Hardy) doesn't care. He has to make sure his big job tomorrow goes as planned, confess to his wife that he cheated on her with a co-worker, and coaching the aforementioned co-worker through the premature birth of their baby. Yikes.

Why We're In: Hardy is more than capable of commanding the screen for the entirety of the movie. Although you hear other characters' voices, it's all Hardy, all the time. Who could argue with that?

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week

"Love Streams" (Criterion)

What's It About? John Cassavetes and real-life wife Gena Rowlands star as siblings who turn to each other for support after being left by everyone else in their lives. »

Who’s The Hottest Celebrity Brother?

11 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

If you’ve fantasized about one of them, two of them, or all of them together, you’re not alone. They’re Hollywood brothers. And at one point or another, they’ve made us thank our lucky stars that talent and good looks can come in multiple forms.

We may find ourselves comparing sexy siblings that are in the spotlight, such as Casey and Ben Affleck, Shawn and Marlon Wayans and the Jonas brothers. But don’t be fooled, there are often times yet another brother in the family we don’t know about, and sometimes, they’re even the hottest. Take a look at these sets of hunky Hollywood bros and see who we thought lucked out by scoring the most attractive genes in the family.
