New Girl” and Zooey Deschanel may no longer be new to the scene, but the centerpiece of Fox’s comedy ensemble cast is still having a great time making the sitcom. “In my whole career, if I have fun doing something, it usually turns out so much better than something that you don’t have fun doing,” Deschanel told TheWrap. “Especially with a comedy, if you’re having fun when you’re doing it, people will probably have fun watching it,” she continued. “So I think it’s important to keep a good atmosphere.” Five seasons in, “New Girl” still has that atmosphere, »

The Weirdest Emmy Ballot Omissions and Oddities

15 June 2015 7:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The race for the Emmys has officially begun. Voting for the TV Academy’s top honors is now open until June 26 — exclusively online for the first time ever — and ballots for all categories are available for viewing.

Variety perused some of the top categories to check out the inevitable oddities, including series left out of consideration (wherefore art thou, “Cougar Town”?) and key performers guaranteed not to get nominated because they’re not on the ballot (sorry, Max Greenfield).

– It was news when the TV Academy’s new attempt to define half-hours as comedies and hourlong series as dramas resulted in “Orange Is the New Black” moving to drama series contention this year. (Meanwhile “Glee” and “Shameless” stayed in comedy, along with newcomer “Jane the Virgin.”) But somehow hourlongs “Devious Maids” (Lifetime) and “Hart of Dixie” (the CW) wound up in the comedy category too, with no fanfare.

I thought this film would be generic but the comedy and Bruce Willis popping up put a smile on my face. The ‘performance’ at the end of the trailer helped as well. »

Bill Murray Gets Lost in the 'Rock the Kasbah' Trailer

12 June 2015 3:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There are plenty of ridiculous moments featured in the new trailer for "Rock the Kasbah," which stars Bill Murray as floundering music manager Richie Lanz, who's trying to revive his career by taking one of his artists on tour in...Afghanistan?

Yes, that not-so-brilliant idea is the central premise for "Kasbah," though that's only the beginning. Richie's incredulous protege singer (Zooey Deschanel) promptly bails on him as soon as they touch down, taking his wallet and passport for good measure; after he's briefed on the situation by a gun-toting Bruce Willis, he has to decide what to do with himself now that he's adrift overseas.

Then, Richie stumbles upon a local teenager who's trying to make it to a singing competition in Kabul, "Afghan Star," and the hapless manager takes the girl under his wing. We're told she has a great voice, but we don't hear it here; maybe that's »

Bill Murray rocks out in Afghanistan in the new trailer for Rock the Kasbah

11 June 2015 12:43 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Bill Murray would probably make a good music manager. Truthfully, he would probably make a good anything.

His characters have had many careers throughout the years: Golf course groundskeeper, camp counsellor, ghost hunter, actor… you name it, Bill’s played it. One thing we haven’t had the chance to see him play before is a music manager, but that unfortunate luck is about to change with Rock the Kasbah later this year.

Directed by Barry Levinson (Good Morning Vietnam, Rain Man), Rock the Kasbah follows a fairly washed-up music manager who discovers a talented young girl while on a tour in Afghanistan. They end up travelling to Kabul to compete on an "American Idol"-esque show called Afghan Star, but not without encountering their fair share of challenges along the way.

Zooey Deschanel, Taylor Kinney, Kate Hudson, Bruce Willis, Scott Caan and Danny McBride also star, forming a very »
