Spaceman released a teaser last month that focused on baseball legend Bill ‘Spaceman’ Lee’s most distinctive characteristic: his extensive drug use [watch it here]. Orion Pictures has now released a full trailer which highlights the journey Bill ‘Spaceman’ Lee took, along with an array of interesting animated visuals. Check it out here…
From the executive producer of ‘Bull Durham’ and ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ comes Spaceman, the mostly-true story of former all-star Mlb pitcher Bill ‘Spaceman’ Lee. In the twilight of a long career as one of baseball’s all-time great eccentrics, Lee (Josh Duhamel) is cut from the Montreal Expos in 1982. Though Lee finds himself blackballed by the rest of the league for his outspoken politics (his views being “somewhere to left of Che Guevara”) and notoriously enthusiastic drug use, he refuses to quit the game. As of 2016, he still hasn’t.

"I ain't ready to write my memoirs yet, I am ?" Filmbuff has unveiled the new full-length trailer for stoner baseball drama Spaceman, about the true story of baseball player Bill "Spaceman" Lee, who was a big-time advocate of marijuana. A very nicely-bearded Josh Duhamel plays Bill Lee, and the cast includes Ernie Hudson, W. Earl Brown, Sterling K. Brown, Carlos Leal, Peter Mackenzie and Emma Rose Maloney. The first teaser trailer for Spaceman didn't show too much, but this trailer gives us much more to work with, and it seems like an amusing and entertaining tale of stoner-dom. Lee actually pitched in the two games during the 1975 World Series for the Red Sox. This seems like a perfect movie for a Sunday afternoon. Here's the new full-length trailer (+ poster) for Brett Rapkin's Spaceman, direct from Filmbuff's YouTube: From the executive producer of Bull Durham and White Men Can't Jump comes the film Spaceman, »

Diggs’ Johan is described as a pretentious hipster type who constantly upsets Anthony Anderson’s Dre. He’s also seen as a bad influence on Dre and Bow’s kids, who — with the exception of Diane — all think he’s incredibly cool.
Diggs recently made headlines when he was announced as part of the all-star »

"Is this what I think it is?" Filmbuff has released a teaer trailer for the baseball drama called Spaceman, about the infamous all-star Mlb pitcher Bill "Spaceman" Lee. Actor Josh Duhamel plays Lee, a former Boston Red Sox and Montreal Expos pitcher who was booted from the Mlb for his love of marijuana and "outspoken politics". The full cast includes Ernie Hudson, W. Earl Brown, Sterling K. Brown, Carlos Leal, Peter Mackenzie and Emma Rose Maloney. This is just the first teaser so it's more of a quick introduction than a full-on trailer, but it looks like it'll be quite fun and funky and full of purple haze. Enjoy. Here's the first official teaser trailer for Brett Rapkin's Spaceman, direct from Filmbuff's YouTube: From the executive producer of Bull Durham and White Men Can't Jump comes the film Spaceman, the mostly-true story of former all-star Mlb pitcher Bill "Spaceman" Lee. »

It wasn’t necessarily a big piece of TV news, but when I heard Deon Cole’s Charlie Telphy would be in the final four episodes of the current season of “Black-ish,” it was time for a small celebration. Starting April 27 — Cole’s first episode back — I demand homemade lavender-honey ice cream for everyone!
“Black-ish” is blessed with a wonderful cast, of course, one that has only gotten stronger and more impressive during the show’s two seasons. It’s a sign that things are headed in the right direction when each character of a TV comedy is so sharply defined that laughter or an amused state of mind can come from merely anticipating what a character might do in a given situation.
