John Bernecker doubled for Will Ferrell, Channing Tatum, Jay Baruchel and many more stars in his impressive career as a Hollywood stuntman. Tragically, Bernecker died Wednesday evening, succumbing to blunt-force trauma injuries that he sustained in a fall while working in Georgia on a scene for AMC’s “The Walking Dead.” Bernecker’s death was ruled an accident by the Coweta County Coroner’s Office. Bernecker fell off a 25-foot-high balcony Wednesday afternoon on the set of the show in Georgia. AMC halted production as he was rushed to Atlanta Medical Center.

You can’t always get what you want. That’s how the song goes, but it hasn’t stopped us from hoping – not when it comes to the second “X-Files” revival and not when it comes to the 2017 Emmy Awards.
Nominations will be announced Thursday morning from the Television Academy’s Saban Media Center in North Hollywood. Anna Chlumsky and Shemar Moore will read the chosen nominees, but until that moment arrives — when dreams are dashed and the cold light of day sets in — the dark horse contenders can still believe.

And we can still believe in them. This year’s Emmy race has been incredibly competitive. With Netflix and Amazon measuring appendages and a packed Fyc calendar from April 1 through early June, there are clearly more deserving vote getters than there will be nominees.
So let’s talk about the long shots one more time »

"Witness the ultimate comeback." Momentum Pictures / eOne has debuted one final official Us trailer for the hockey comedy sequel Goon: Last of the Enforcers, which is now scheduled for a release in the Us starting in September (it already opened in Canada in March). Seann William Scott returns as Doug Glatt from Goon, the hockey player who just loves to fight, picking up where the story left off. He plans to retire from hockey (and fighting) but ends up back on the ice again, being trained for left-handed fighting by none other than Ross Rhea himself - Liev Schreiber. The full cast includes Elisha Cuthbert, Liev Schreiber, Alison Pill, T.J. Miller, Wyatt Russell, Marc-André Grondin, Jason Jones, Kim Coates. We have already seen plenty of trailers for this, but I'm still looking forward to seeing it sometime this year. Dive in. Here's the final Us trailer (+ poster) for Jay Baruchel »

Momentum Pictures has released the third trailer for Goon 2: Last of the Enforcers, along with a new poster, which brings back Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott) and his outlandish friend Pat (Jay Baruchel), with Baruchel making his directorial debut here. It's been five long years since the original Goon debuted and became a sports cult classic. Now we finally get to see the next chapter of the Doug Glatt saga, with a few more familiar faces returning, along with some new characters as well. After an exclusive Canadian release earlier this year, Goon: Last of the Enforcers is getting ready to hit American theaters this fall.
Entertainment Weekly debuted this trailer and the new poster for Goon 2, following the first two trailers that debuted in November 2016 and in February 2017, respectively. At that time, though, only the Canadian release had been announced, with the sequel hitting theaters on March 17 in Canada. »

Comedy sequels are already a rare breed of movie, but sports comedy sequels are seen even less. But that didn’t stop actor Jay Baruchel from getting his passion project off the ground: a sequel to the hockey comedy Goon that he wrote back in 2011. Take Me Home Tonight director Michael Dowse was at the […]

Jay Baruchel is a very happy man indeed. Over the last decade, I’ve been fortunate enough to interview a lot of people for Den of Geek, but Mr Baruchel might just be the most enthusiastic one to date – almost every sentence ended with the kind of joyous laugh that would come from having, quite possibly, the best job ever, twice. Known to most as an actor with a gift for the comedic, having starred in the likes of Tropic Thunder, Knocked Up, Goon, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and The Art Of The Steal (to name a few personal favourites) as well as voicing accidental hero Hiccup in the fantastic How To Train Your Dragon movies, it was about his recent involvement with Canadian comic book publisher, Chapterhouse, that we had a chat with him about. »

Over the years, we’ve often championed the beautifully violent and big hearted Goon, which starred Seann William Scott, Alison Pill, Liev Schreiber and Jay Baruchel himself, to name a few. While the sequel, Last Of The Enforcers has already been released in Canada, we were still waiting for it to make its fist-flinging way to this side of the Atlantic, but confirmation of the UK release date has come from Mr Baruchel during a new interview we've done with him about his appointment to and acquisition of Chapterhouse Comics in Canada.

It remains to be seen if anyone can break Jeffrey Tambor’s two-year winning streak for “Transparent,” but there’s a formidable group that will make a strong effort. In fact, this category could be an exact repeat of last year’s lineup, with Anthony Anderson (“Black-ish”), Aziz Ansari (“Master of None”), Will Forte (“The Last Man On Earth”), William H. Macy (“Shameless”), and Thomas Middleditch (“Silicon Valley”) all eligible. But it’s likely at least one will be displaced by Donald Glover’s star turn on the FX comedy “Atlanta,” which won dual Golden Globe Awards for best comedy series and comedy actor this year. Glover has been busy at work on the high-profile Han Solo prequel, which certainly puts him front and center in voters’ minds. But never count out Jim Parsons, who could return for his work on “The Big Bang Theory,” which has already landed him four Emmys. And »

According to THR, Richie Mehta (Siddharth, Amal) has signed on to direct Jay Baruchel (Goon: Last of the Enforcers) in Baseballissimo, an indie drama about a minor-league pitcher on an Italian baseball team.
The film has been written by Baruchel and his wiring partner Jesse Chabot (Random Acts of Violence) and originally had Jacob Tierney attached to direct and Anton Yelchin set for the lead role of Kyle Buffone, a rising minor-league baseball player who gets detoured on the way to major-league stardom by pitching for the Peones, a team in Italy.
The project was put on hold following Yelchin’s untimely death last year, but is now moving forward, and the search is underway for an actor to take on the lead. It is being shopped to potential buyers at Cannes this month. »

It’s that time of year again. As the major networks prepare for annual upfront presentations in New York next week, they’re sharpening their axes, canceling shows left and right to make room for new titles in the fall. The house-cleaning includes both freshmen series like Fox’s trio of newcomers — “Son of Zorn,” “Making History,” and “APB” — bubble shows like “Sleepy Hollow,” and veterans like Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing” on ABC.
“Sleepy Hollow”: After developing a loyal fanbase, “Sleepy Hollow,” starring Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane, was canceled after four seasons. The supernatural drama saw its ratings drop sharply in Season 4, averaging a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demo and 1.9 million total viewers — down 40% in the demo and and 37% in viewers from the previous season.

Mehta's latest movie is the documentary India in a Day, which was executive produced by Ridley Scott and which follows two earlier India-set theatrical dramas, Siddarth and Amal. Google partnered with The Martian director Scott, Indian helmer Anurag Kashyap and Mehta on the user-generated doc.

Image Source: Getty/Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic Charlie Hunnam is dancing within seconds of our introduction. "I just invented a Popsugar dance," he says. "Do you want to see it?" I tell him that I absolutely do, of course, and soon he's half bent over while punching the air with both arms, doing what can best be described as a victory dance. When I admit that I'd kill to have his moves on video, he just laughs, taking a seat at our small table and sitting back in his chair, ready for what must feel like the millionth interview of the week. If anybody deserves a victory dance right now, it's Hunnam. The 37-year-old actor is in the midst of a jam-packed press circuit as the star of two of Spring's most buzzed-about movies, King Arthur and The Lost City of Z. We meet during a press junket for the latter, »

RelatedCable/Streaming Renewal Scorecard: What’s Coming Back? What’s Cancelled? What’s On the Bubble?
The comedy, which aired its third season series finale on March 8, starred Jay Baruchel as Josh, a man who — as the title suggests — was willing to put himself through all sorts of awkward nonsense in the name of finding love.
“Man Seeking Woman” has been canceled after three seasons, TheWrap has learned. Fxx has decided not to renew the Jay Baruchel-led comedy for a fourth season a month after the conclusion of the show’s low-rated third season. Including seven days of delayed viewing, Season 3 of “Man Seeking Woman” averaged just 367,000 total viewers per week. The sitcom follows Josh Greenberg (Baruchel) as he soldiers through the life-and-death stakes of dating. The series also stars Eric Andre (“The Eric Andre Show”) as Mike, Josh’s confident and daring best friend; and Britt Lower (“Sisters”) as Liz, Josh’s intimidating older sister. »
