Ashton Kutcher Is TV’s Highest Paid Actor

15 October 2013 1:17 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Two and a Half Men” is a cash cow for CBS, but the network and creators Chuck Lorre and Lee Aronsohn aren’t the only ones benefiting.

“Men” star Ashton Kutcher leads Forbes’ annual list of top-paid TV actors, having earned an estimated $24 million between June 2012 and June 2013.

The long-running sitcom, which reeled in 11.6 million viewers in the first week of the new television season, has dominated the list for the past few years; this is Kutcher’s second year in a row at the top spot and in 2011, Charlie Sheen, the actor he replaced on the sitcom, was No. 1.

Kutcher has familiar company on this year’s list. His co-stars Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones clocked in at second and seventh places, respectively. However, Jones is no longer on the show after he publicly denounced the show on a video that went viral, and has been replaced by Amber Tamblyn. »

Christopher Keyser Remains Unchallenged as WGA West President

23 July 2013 5:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a first for the Writers Guild of America West, Christopher Keyser will not face a challenge as president of the Writers Guild of America West for the next two years — with no opposition emerging via nominating petition for the upcoming September election.

It’s the first time in recent memory that a WGA West president has gone unopposed in an election. WGA West rules require that its nominating committee select opponents for all offices but the guild disclosed last month that the unidentified opponent selected for Keyser had declined to run.

A candidate still could have been nominated by petition with 50 signatures by Tuesday’s deadline but no member took the opportunity.

Past WGA West elections to head the 8,000-member guild have often been spirited affairs such as the 2009 election between John Wells and Elias Davis, which served as referendum on the effectiveness of the 2007-08 strike with Wells »

Keyser Running Unopposed for WGA-West Prexy

21 June 2013 2:46 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Christopher Keyser is running unopposed for a second two-year term as the president of the Writers Guild of America West — though an opponent could emerge via nominating petition.

The guild released a list of candidates chosen by its nominating committee Friday, disclosing that the opponent selected by the panel had declined for the election. Candidates can still be nominated for the next month by petition with 50 signatures and a July 23 deadline.

Results will be announced Sept. 17. The WGA West has about 8,000 members while the WGA East reps about 4,000 members. The WGA East has not yet disclosed its candidates for its next election, which also takes place in September.

Keyser topped former WGA president Patric Verrone two years ago by a 3-to-2 margin. Keyser offered a marked low-key contrast with Verrone’s confrontational style, highlighted by the high drama of the 100-day strike that ended on Feb. 12, 2008.

Wgaw Unveils Initial 2013 Election Candidates: Incumbent President Chris Keyser Running Unopposed For Now

21 June 2013 1:29 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

There’s a big surprise today in the Writers Guild West‘s 2013 initial list of election candidates: the scribe selected to run against incumbent president Christopher Keyser declined the nomination. That means, unless someone else can be convinced to run, Keyser right now is running unopposed. He was a newcomer to Wgaw leadership first elected two years ago when he defeated the polarizing Patric Verrone. Even back then, in 2011, few people stepped forward to run for the presidency: insiders told me that was because of great apathy. It seems nothing has changed even though the WGA constitution doesn’t allow for uncontested races: Los Angeles – The Writers Guild of America, West’s Nominating Committees have announced the initial list of candidates for the 2013 Wgaw Officers and Board of Directors election. The Officer candidates are as follows: President* – Christopher Keyser (inc.); Vice President – Timothy J. Lea, Howard A. Rodman (inc.); Secretary-Treasurer – Dan Wilcox, »

Must See Newport Beach Film Festival Short - Sink Your Teeth into Mandible

24 April 2013 7:45 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It's hump day again, and to get you through the longest friggin' day of the week, we have a short film in promotion of the Newport Beach Film Festival (April 25th-May 2nd) that we guarantee is packing some seriously bloody bite. Check it out!

A short film created by ad agency Rpa and Tool of Na directing duo, Erich Joiner and Dp Robert Richardson, three-time Academy Award®-winner (Django Unchained, Inglourious Basterds, Shutter Island, Kill Bill: Vol. 1 & 2), and acclaimed screenwriter Lee Aronsohn ("Two and a Half Men," "Big Bang Theory"). Famous for playing against the Orange County conservative stereotype, the Newport Beach Film Festival continues to build a distinctive personality for itself as a powerful player in the national film festival circuit. This year's advertising breaks away from the traditional 60-second format, evolving into a six-minute showpiece. Graphic, intense and unlike anything film festival-goers are prepared for, this hard-hitting »

General Hospital Actress To Nurse A Two and a Half Men Heart

19 April 2013 2:18 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Ready for a little Two and a Half Men spoiler? Get ready! Former General Hospital actress Julie Marie Berman is coming to town! Hey, Alan, I think she’s single.

For about 8 years, Berman brought to life Lulu Spencer for General Hospital, but ER and Boston Public are also on her resume. Lulu, the Port Charles-born blonde, was once cryogenically frozen in one of the soap opera’s crazier story lines. Pretty nifty, no?

Just the opposite can be expected when she comes to the Two and a Half Men set. Berman is going to heat things up instead. TVLine has confirmed that the actress will be a “micro guest” the May 2 episode. Her character is a pretty girl in a bar who with catch Alan’s fancy. Good luck with that, Alan! I know you’ll find some way to screw up your chances. But don’t worry. »

Allison Janney To Co-Star In Chuck Lorre’s CBS Comedy Pilot ‘Mom’

28 January 2013 11:00 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Comedy pilot Mom has solidified its status as frontrunner for the fall CBS schedule. The project, from the network’s biggest hit maker Chuck Lorre, already snagged Anna Faris for the lead. Now it has also scored Emmy winner Allison Janney. Mom, which Lorre co-wrote on spec with two members of his Two And A Half Men team — executive producer Eddie Gorodetsky and story editor Gemma Baker — centers on Christy (Faris), a newly sober single mom who tries to pull her life together in Napa Valley. Janney will play her mom Bonnie, who is the source of a lot of Christy’s previous problems, most likely because she wasn’t the best mother. Mom landed Janney in a competitive situation, with three other pilots pursuing her. The project reunites Janney and Lorre. In 2007, Lorre and his Two And A Half co-creator Lee Aronsohn developed a CBS comedy pilot for her to star. »
