Barbara Walters is coming out of retirement for 'The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014'

21 October 2014 9:36 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Barbara Walters is coming out of retirement for "The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014” Walters said she was done with the franchise after the 2013 edition. But ABC announced this morning that "Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014” will return Sunday, Dec. 14 at 9 pm. Why hasn’t any new fall show been canceled yet? It’s unusual to have zero cancelations one month into the season. But this is an unusual season, and EW reports that one of the factors in the lack of cancelations is the lack of confidence in the midseason replacement shows. Plus: It’s hard to figure out what a hit is nowadays. Pop network orders its 1st scripted series: “Schitt’s Creek” with Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara The current TV Guide Network will transform into Pop, with a comedy about a rich family that loses it all in a Ponzi scheme and ends up living in a motel. »

Best In Show at Tenacious Eats ‘Movies for Foodies’ October 9th – Benefit for Stray Rescue

7 October 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“I used to be able to name every nut that there was. And it used to drive my mother crazy, because she used to say, “Harlan Pepper, if you don’t stop naming nuts,” and the joke was that we lived in Pine Nut, and I think that’s what put it in my mind at that point. So she would hear me in the other room, and she’d just start yelling. I’d say, “Peanut. Hazelnut. Cashew nut. Macadamia nut.” That was the one that would send her into going crazy. She’d say, “Would you stop naming nuts!” And Hubert used to be able to make the sound, he couldn’t talk, but he’d go “rrrawr rrawr” and that sounded like Macadamia nut.

Waiting For Guffman Screens in St. Louis Next Tuesday at The Mx Independent Film Festival

“We consider ourselves bi-costal if you consider the Mississippi River one of the coasts!”

Waiting For Guffman screens Tuesday, September 30th at the Mx Theater downtown (618 Washington Ave, St Louis, Mo 63101) as part of The Mx Independent Film Festival. Admission is Free!

Never has small town theater been so hysterical. Christopher Guest’s mockumentary Waiting For Guffman is one of the funniest movies ever made. Its smart humor and devoted cast all give the 1996 film what it needs to work. In the small town of Blaine Missouri (“The stool capital of the world”), temperamental, effeminate Corky St. Clair (Christopher Guest) is determined to get his play about the town’s history off the ground. Using all the (very) limited talent he has in the community, Corky puts on his production.

Defending Ghostbusters II

22 September 2014 12:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ghostbusters II might not have the esteemed reputation of the 1984 original, but Seb argues that it's well worth another look...

As has been impossible to avoid in geek and movie buff circles, this year represents the 30th anniversary of the release of Ghostbusters. This is obviously, of course, something to be celebrated – but amid all the fuss, it’s quite easy to overlook the fact that as a result, it’s also the 25th anniversary of its sequel.

The fact that Ghostbusters II isn’t being celebrated in anything like as extensive or affectionate a fashion as its predecessor is reflective of the poor reputation it has among fans of the first film, and indeed the wider film-going public at large. Sequels to a genre classic not being as good – and hence as beloved – as the original is of course not exactly uncommon; but whereas the likes of Back To The Future Part II »

"I saw Idris recently. We’re both in the sequel to Finding Nemo, so we were recording that. I’m in pretty regular contact with a lot of guys from The Wire — a lot of them are godparents to my kids, so I love them dearly."

I never thought I'd see these two hardcore characters from The Wire in a Pixar film, but here they are. They join an already impressive cast that includes Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Willem Dafoe, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, and Ty Burrell.

The story takes place a year after the first film, and is set along the California coastline.

Idris Elba And Dominic West Join Finding Dory

11 September 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Might Pixar’s upcoming sequel Finding Dory take its characters to the mean streets of Baltimore? Almost absolutely not, but good luck getting that image out of your head now that it’s been revealed that The Wire co-stars Idris Elba and Dominic West have both signed on to lend their voices to new characters in the Finding Nemo follow-up.

West, who is starring in Showtime’s ambitious fall series The Affair, dropped the news during an interview with Shortlist, simply teasing:

“We’re both in the sequel to ‘Finding Nemo,’ so we were recording that.”

No word yet on which characters the actors will be playing, but Finding Dory is set to take place at least in part along the coast of California, where scatter-brained regal tang Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) reunites with many important people from her past one year after the events of the first film. Along for the ride are Marlin, »

5 less-heralded Robin Williams films

11 August 2014 8:20 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Robin Williams’ long filmography has more than its share of high-profile roles—but IMDb lists 102 total acting credits stretching all the way back to 1977. (That first one? A pair of parts in something called Can I Do It ‘Till I Need Glasses?, which the site describes as “a comedy are comprised of short sexually suggestive skits.”) Williams’ triumphs (Good Will Hunting) and failures (Popeye) are well-known, but it’s worth digging through some of his less-heralded work to find the occasional gem.

10 Cartoon Voices That Are Actually Impressions of Other Actors

24 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

In music there are only 12 notes, so it's no wonder so many songs sound the same. But what about someone's voice? The way someone speaks is not bound by any kind of scale or music theory, rather it's the sum a person’s upbringing, their physicality, and their personality. So why do so many cartoon characters sound so eerily familiar? In this list we highlight 10 cartoon characters whose voices (and often their likenesses) are based on other actors. We also mention 5 other cartoon voices that are impressions in the bonus sections of related entries. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, these actors have been thoroughly praised by some of the best.
