With Muppets Most Wanted opening next weekend, I recently landed an exclusive video interview with Bret McKenzie here in Los Angeles. If you enjoyed the music McKenzie wrote for The Muppets two years ago, you'll be happy to know that he's crafted some great songs for the sequel. During the interview he talked about the scripting process, Tina Fey’s original character, which songs were easy to figure out and the ones that gave him trouble, making the humor more self-aware, what it was like touring with Dave Chappelle last year, the status of his animated fairy tale project he’s developing, and a lot more. You'll even get to see him sing a little bit! In the sequel, the gang is on a successful tour in Europe but gets into trouble when Kermit gets confused with his jewel-heisting doppelganger, Constantine. The film stars Ricky Gervais and Ty Burrell, and »

Los Angeles (AP) — Chasing down the top spot at the box office after debuting at No. 2 last week, "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" took the lead in its second weekend. The DreamWorks animated film about the time-traveling adventures of a genius dog and the human son he adopted earned $21.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. The 3-D kiddie-jaunt features voices from "Modern Family" stars Ty Burrell and Ariel Winter. "Our mid-week numbers were very strong indicating good and positive word of mouth," said Chris Aronson, president of domestic distribution at Twentieth Century Fox. "If anything, this is exceeding (expectations). It's a combination of likable characters and it's a nostalgia play for those who are familiar with the show." Mr. Peabody and Sherman first appeared in the 1950s and early 1960s on the show "Peabody's Improbable History," a segment within the animated television series "Rocky and His Friends" and later "The Bullwinkle Show. »

DreamWorks' Fast-Paced Actioner Turns in Lackluster Debut - A Short Life Expectancy for Scott Waugh Film. "Bad Words" Very Impressive with $20,000 Per-Theater Average. 20th Century Fox has a solid animated winner on its hands in "Peabody & Sherman" as the film which debuted in second place last weekend behind Warners' "300: Rise of An Empire," flipped positions, and managed a solid $21.2 million. That takes the Rob Minkoff film's domestic total past $63.1 million, while overseas the film voiced by Ty Burrell, Max Charles, Allison Janney, Stanley Tucci and Leslie Mann, has accumulated over $69.8 million, making for a worldwide cume of over $133.07 million thus far. In second, "300: Rise of An Empire" showed a change of 58% with $19.1 million earned, which takes the Noam Murro film's Stateside cume to over $78.3 million. International coin is over $87.8 million. That's a worldwide total of over $166.1 million from $110 million. Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures' distributed "Need for Speed »

You might expect someone that struggled mightily in pretty much every single challenge, tossed out her tribe’s food supply, took the lead on building a terrible shelter, and then got voted out one day before a tribe shake-up that could have completely changed her fortunes in the game to have some regrets from her experience on Survivor: Cagayan. But not when then someone is nuclear engineer J’Tia Taylor. One day after being eliminated on the show, J’Tia called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to talk about how it all went wrong, and we mean All went wrong. »

On March 21, Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo and the rest of the gang are back for Muppets Most Wanted , their latest big screen adventure, which picks up just seconds after the end of 2011's The Muppets . This time, the Muppets are going on a world tour with just one little problem: Kermit winds up getting secretly replaced by an evil doppelganger, Constantine (played, coincidentally enough, by an actual criminal frog of the same name!) ComingSoon.net sat down with star Ty Burrell, who plays Jean Pierre Napeleon, an Interpol agent who teams with Sam Eagle in the hopes of finding out who is responsible for a rash of high-profile burglaries all across Europe. In the below video interview, Burrell reveals some surprising facts about his fine-feathered co-star and »
For a comedy with such an eclectic ensemble cast, it is a bit puzzling why Modern Family so rarely shifts the characters into new groups for storylines. “Other People’s Children” is an episode that forces the extended family to spend time with people we normally do not see them interact with. Here, as the title infers, the adults spend their day with children who are not their sons and daughters, to rather fresh results. Also, Adam DeVine recurs as lovable hick nanny Andy, an always welcome surprise. He gets one of the week’s funnier storylines and some time to bond with Ty Burrell’s Phil – a match that works from start to finish.
Cam and Mitch take Alex and Manny to a “retrospective on postwar abstract expressionism” at a modern art museum – although the three males try their best to seem as culturally astute as Alex. This subplot »

The home of Modern Family's Phil (Ty Burrell) and Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen) is for sale with an asking price of $2.35 million. Located in the Cheviot Hills area of West Los Angeles, the exterior of the 2,792-square-foot, four-bedroom house is regularly captured by the ABC camera crew, while the interior scenes are shot on a sound stage recreated in a similar layout to the home.

The Muppets return to the big screen later this month in the caper Muppets Most Wanted, and Disney has provided us with 20 minutes of fantastic behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the film. Included in the video are great on set moments, the cast and Muppets recording some of the songs, some of the big stars that cameo in the film, Bret McKenzie singing one the songs, and so much more. I promise if you're a fan of The Muppets, you're going to love the video. Saying that, if you're trying to stay spoiler free, you might want to wait to watch this as some of the jokes/cameos will get spoiled. Directed by James Bobin, the follow-up finds the gang on a successful tour in Europe when Kermit gets mistaken for his jewel-heisting doppelganger, Constantine, and thrown in jail. The human cast is led by Ricky Gervais as a »

Everyone — the lovers, the dreamers, and Oscar-winning songwriter Bret McKenzie — got dolled up to watch the world premiere of the Muppets Most Wanted alongside the titular stars last night in Hollywood.
“This is a bucket-list sort of item,” said Tina Fey, who plays a warden at the Siberian gulag where Kermit The Frog is wrongly imprisoned after his lookalike nemesis Constantine slaps a fake mole on his face in the Disney sequel hitting theaters March 21, when Entertainment Weekly caught up with her on the carpet at the El Capitan Theatre. “I met Lorne Michaels. I met John McEnroe. And now I have met the Muppets. »

Miss Piggy was a total ham at Tuesday night’s premiere of Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted,” where the A-list swine — ever the glamourpuss in pearls and a blue frock revealing a hint of décolletage — and her reluctant soul mate Kermit the Frog, au naturel in green, mingled with the movie’s human stars Tina Fey, Ty Burrell and Ricky Gervais at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theater.
Gervais, who plays the film’s bad guy, snapped selfies with Miss Piggy and Kermit, as well as Constantine, Kermit’s evil doppelganger in helmer-cum-scribe James Bobin’s sequel to 2011’s “The Muppets.”
For Fey, who most closely identifies with Scooter — “because he has a lot of backstage responsibilities and glasses” — starring opposite the Muppets was a “bucket list” item. »

Following her Thanksgiving special, Lady Gaga reunites with The Muppets on the “Muppets Most Wanted” soundtrack. Lady Gaga, her buddy Tony Bennett, and The Muppets perform the meta tune “We’re Doing A Sequel,” which follows Walter, Statler and Waldorf’s sure-to-be-hilarious “They’ve Ordered a Sequel.” Other singers on the soundtrack include Celine Dion, who performs with fellow diva Miss Piggy, Kermits and the whole Muppet gang for “Something So Right” (we’re guessing it’s not the Paul Simon tune of the same name), Josh Groban and Flight of the Conchords’s Jemaine Clement. Among the chestnuts on the album are Scooter and Pepe the King Prawn (remember the shrimp who felt up Lady Gaga in their atrocious Thanksgiving special?) on “Moves Like Jagger,” and Miss Piggy on “Macarena.” Also on the soundtrack, out March 24, are a number of actors who appear in the movie, including Tina Fey, »
If you're familiar with Ty Burrell's Emmy-winning, endlessly goofy work on "Modern Family," you might be shocked to learn he's all business in "Muppets Most Wanted." As Interpol inspector Jean Pierre Napoleon, he and associate Sam the Eagle furrow their considerable brows for 90 straight minutes in pursuit of the nefarious Kermit doppelganger Constantine. Thankfully, the seriousness of Jean Pierre's quest is offset by his extremely Frawnch, extremely Clouseau accent. In our interview with Burrell, we chatted about his favorite Muppets, if actors with great eyebrows are a dying breed, and the episode of "Seinfeld" that has followed him throughout his life. »

Director: James Bobin.
Running Time: 112 minutes.
Synopsis: While on a grand world tour, The Muppets find themselves caught up in a European jewel-heist caper headed by a Kermit the Frog lookalike and his dastardly sidekick.
After their nostalgic 2011 comeback, the gang return with Muppets Most Wanted. As mad as a box of frogs, the entertainment value is upped in this spoof-like caper that is equally as ridiculous as it is enjoyable. As an adult, you’ll have no trouble with the forthright plot of mistaken identity. After being talked into a global tour by Ricky Gervais’ Dominic Badguy (“it’s French and pronounced Bad-gey”), we discover he’s in cahoots with an evil, Russian frog by the name of Constantine and they plan to steal art behind the cover of The Muppet Show.
Gervais is in perfect deadpan form, »
