Watch the New Trailer for Horrible Bosses 2

10 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

If you prefer your punch lines screamed at high volume, this trailer is the one for you. Colin Farrell is otherwise engaged, and he's been replaced by the combination of Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine, playing a father-son team who steal our heroes' business idea and therefore Must Pay. Speaking of stealing: Does it count as ripping off Fight Club if you call out that you're ripping off Fight Club? »

Move Over 'True Detective': Ellen Page and Kate Mara Are 'Tiny Detectives'

26 September 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The struggle is real for these pint-sized actresses.

Rust Cohle and Marty Hart may have faced their share of adversities in the first season of True Detective, but it's nothing compared to the short girl struggles of Kate Mara and Ellen Page.

The duo star in Tiny Detectives, a "Funny or Die" parody that pits the 5'2 Mara and 5'1 Page against criminals. See the whole thing below.

True Detective Primer: The Darkest Roles from Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, and Vince Vaughn

26 September 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Earlier this week HBO finally confirmed that both Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn had signed on for the second season of True Detective. And if sources are correct, both men will be joined by Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch, who will round out the series’ four lead roles. The casting news is sure to draw excitement and ire among fans as debate unfolds about whether or not each actor is the right choice.

While it remains to be seen just how each actor does in the series, we rounded up their best roles that serve as a primer to the crime drama.

Most mans of Vince Vaughn know him for his hilarious comedies, such as Wedding Crashers and Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, but there was a time when the actor explored a more serious side of things. In 2000′s The Cell, Vaughn goes inside the mind of a serial »

Rachel McAdams Offered True Detective Role

26 September 2014 7:49 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

HBO has offered Rachel McAdams the lead female role in their drama thriller True Detective, and I think it'd be smart of her to take it. If she does, she will join Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, who she starred alongside in the comedy Wedding Crashers. There's one other lead role that needs to be filled as well, and that is expected to go to Taylor Kitsch

Justin Lin (Fast and Furious franchise) is set to direct the first two episodes of Season 2, which is set in California and revolves around three police officers and a career criminal who navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. McAdams would play one of the three cops.

Creator Nic Pizzolatto has been hard at work writing the series, which is sure to be a huge hit. The first season was amazing, and I can only imagine that the second »

Graham Norton Show returns: 10 classic hilarious moments

26 September 2014 3:26 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Hoorah! The Graham Norton show is back to fill our Friday evenings with post-pub fun as it returns tonight (September 26)

Doctor Who's Peter Capaldi, Denzel Washington, Gemma Arterton and George Ezra will be cramming together on Norton's crimson couch for the first episode, which marks the show's impressive 16th series.

So in anticipation, we select a few of our favourite titbits from the show's last two series - from the infectious sound of Bill Murray's laughter to Will Smith's Fresh Prince nostalgia overload - below:

1. Samuel L Jackson

Smooth operator Samuel L Jackson got even smoother when he recited his famous Ezekiel speech from Pulp Fiction with ease 20 years on. The Hollywood actor was asked by Norton if he remembered the famous monologue, to which he replied a confident: "Yeah!" Cue the camera panning in for a close-up, the dramatic background music rising up and Jackson's flawless »

Rachel McAdams joins True Detective as female lead

25 September 2014 11:45 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

After we learnt that Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell have joined True Detective season 2, Rachel McAdams has now entered the mix...

True Detective season two casting announcements are like buses – they take blummin’ ages to arrive, and people seem to have polarised opinions about them (so far).

On an unrelated note, today we had our second cast confirmation in as many days after a long wait - It’s been announced that Mean Girls, Sherlock Holmes and About Time actress Rachel McAdams will be playing the female lead.

If you’ve seen the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s excellent turn in A Most Wanted Man, you’ll know that McAdams is no stranger to tense realistically-shot investigatory drama.

We’ve known for a while that the second season would centre on three detectives –two male, one female. We now have two thirds of that confirmed in the shape of Colin Farrell and Rachel McAdams. »

Ellen Page, Kate Mara Lampoon True Detective in Hilarious Video

25 September 2014 8:55 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Ellen Page and Kate Mara aren’t detectives; they play “tiny” detectives in a hilarious spoof of the new HBO show “True Detective,” starring Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn. Sometimes height has its advantages. Page, 31, is a statuesque five-feet, one-inch tall, while Mara, also 31, is an inch taller. That presents certain, shall we say, disadvantages when they are working a crime scene. [...] »

'True Detective' Parody Has Kate Mara & Ellen Page on the Case

25 September 2014 4:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Two actress not up for lead female in True Detective Season 2 are Kate Mara and Ellen Page. While Rachel McAdams reportedly has the role locked up, nearly half of every known ingenue in Hollywood is also auditioning for the part. And guess what, not many fans have been pleased with the names so far announced. There has also been plenty of controversy surrounding the casting of Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell as the two male leads.

So, leave it to Funny or Die to provide an answer for disappointed viewers. As they tell it, because the internet was so unhappy with the casting of True Detective Season 2, the creators have started from scratch with an entirely new show.

Check out Tiny Detectives, which stars Kate Mara and Ellen Page as two diminutive cops afraid of stepladders despite their inability to reach high places:

Wanted: Rachel McAdams For ‘True Detective’ Season Two

25 September 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The male cast is largely in place.  The question now for True Detective fans – who will play the female lead? While Rachel McAdams has been high on the production team’s wishlist for a while, her involvement is getting close to reality with the news she is in talks to join the second season. The diverse range of actresses mooted for the part have included Rosario Dawson and Jessica Biel but reportedly McAdams is the name that will shortly be announced to join Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn. Taylor Kitsch is also said to be about to sign on the dotted line.

Recently following her turn in Richard Curtis’s About Time with John Le Carre’s A Most Wanted Man, McAdams is one of those high profile talents who is keen to take on different types of roles. That shouldn’t be a problem here as she’s wanted to play Ani Bezzerides, »

McAdams Nearly Set For "True Detective"

25 September 2014 3:03 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

HBO has reportedly offered Rachel McAdams the lead female role in the second season of "True Detective" and Variety indicates she's locking down the role right now.

McAdams would join the currently confirmed Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn in the series, with the fourth lead role expected to go to Taylor Kitsch. McAdams appears to have beaten out the likes of Jessica Biel and Malin Akerman for the role.

The main issue has been one of scheduling with McAdams about to start the Catholic Church sex scandal "Spotlight". In the past day or so, a deal has apparently been worked out so the actress could do both projects.

Justin Lin is set to direct the first two episodes of the HBO drama's second season which revolves around three police officers and a career criminal who navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. »

Rachel McAdams Just Might Be Getting On This ‘True Detective’ Train

25 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

See? We told you guys to just wait — and, yes, we had to take that advice to heart, too — because, no matter what the addition of Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn to the True Detective second season roster meant, it didn’t mean that casting was over. Now, well, casting still isn’t over, but it’s getting there, and it’s certainly moving in a very nice direction. Variety reports that, as has been rumored off and on for awhile now, Rachel McAdams has been offered one of four lead roles in the HBO series’ second season. The part will reportedly see McAdams playing “a Monterey sheriff with a troubled past that has led her to a gambling and alcohol addiction.” The part is one of three law enforcement types on the new season — Farrell is on board as one, Taylor Kitsch is still expected to play the other, and »

Watch: Kate Mara and Ellen Page Are ‘Tiny Detectives’ in ‘True Detective’ Parody

25 September 2014 2:49 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On Wednesday, it was revealed that Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn will be the leads in season two of HBO’s “True Detective,” but what if the stars were a little smaller?

Kate Mara and Ellen Page have stepped in to find out just that, with help from Funny or Die, forming “Tiny Detectives.” Mara and Page stand at 5’2″ and 5’1″, respectively, so they have problems with reaching shelves, seeing evidence and punching someone across the table, but that won’t stop them from trying to solve the case.

They previously dropped a hint to HBO in March, when Mara tweeted a picture of the two with the hashtag #TrueDetectiveSeason2. They’re not the first high-profile duo to parody the drama — Patton Oswalt and Seth Rogen also gave “True Detective” their own spin, as did “Community’s” Jim Rash and Joel McHale.

25 September 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier in the week it was confirmed that both Colin Farrell (Total Recall) and Vince Vaughn (Delivery Man) have signed on to the second season of True Detective, and now Variety is reporting that HBO has offered Rachel McAdams (About Time) and Taylor Kitsch (John Carter) the two remaining lead roles.

Should deals be reached, McAdams and Kitsch would appear as detectives alongside Colin Farrell’s Ray Velcoro, “a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him.” Vaughn is set to play the villain, a career criminal called Frank Semyon.

Watch: Ellen Page and Kate Mara Are Tiny Detectives in Funny or Die Spoof

25 September 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

The amount of coverage on the upcoming second season of HBO’s anthology series True Detective has been, well, intense.  Just about every actor on the planet was reported as being on a shortlist, in talks, circling, or eyed for a role in the new season, and while the cast is nearly set with Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn confirmed, Rachel McAdams holding an offer for the female lead, and Taylor Kitsch expected to take a supporting role, speculation continues for a few more unspecified parts.  While we await further development on that front, the excellent duo of Ellen Page and Kate Mara have thrown their hats into the ring for a spinoff of sorts, Tiny Detectives.  The title of the new Funny or Die short is pretty self-explanatory, and yes it’s a very simple joke, but that doesn’t make it any less funny.

‘True Detective’ Season 2: Rachel McAdams Up for Female Lead

25 September 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

The world needs bad men. It also needs bad women, which is why HBO’s acclaimed crime drama True Detective has made a point of casting a female lead for its next go-round. Granted, Sheriff Ani Bezzerides might end up serving as the moral center of season two’s protagonist trio, while its male component – comprised of Colin Farrell and (probably) Taylor Kitsch - could supply the show with its trademark ethical ambiguity; the tough, local area sheriff may yet be one of the good guys after all.

But whether Bezzerides is pure of heart or willing to bend the rules to get the job done, it’s looking more and more likely that she’ll be played by Rachel McAdams. In the building race to secure the role, ...
