TV Entertainers Who Passed Away in 2016

31 December 2016 7:00 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

We lost some beloved people during 2016.

All we can do now is honor their memories, remember what they brought to us through their talent and allow them to live on forever through their wonderful work.

1. In Memorium To all of the people who have entertained us on television throughout the years and ended their struggle this year, we honor you. 2. Pat Harrington, Jr. August 13, 1929 - January 6, 2016. Harrington is forever in our hearts as Schneider, the handyman from the apartment building on One Day at a Time from 1977-80, despite the fact his career was more far-reaching than that. 3. David Bowie January 8, 1947 - January 10, 2016. Bowie starred in movies such as Labyrinth and The Hunger, as well as TV shows Dream On and The Hunger, but it was his musical library that brought to live many scenes in both movies and on TV that will continue to remind us every day of Bowie's many talents. »

Watch: Comedy Short Film 'Curmudgeons' Directed by Danny DeVito

14 October 2016 8:46 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Life happens. And it sweeps you up, and then you die. That's it. Stupid really..." Need a good laugh? Watch this short. Curmudgeons is a comedic short film directed by Danny DeVito, starring Danny DeVito and his longtime friend David Margulies as two old "curmudgeons" who meet up again at an assisted living home. The cast includes Danny DeVito's daughter Lucy DeVito, as well as Sarah Nina Hayon and Kett Turton. It's a wonderful mix of hilariously crude humor and life lessons being imparted to youngsters, with a sweet side to it that comes out in just the right way. I'm really impressed by this - it's the kind of film you should watch if you're feeling sad and need a reminder of what happiness is. Take a few minutes and watch. Description from Vimeo: "A pair of senior citizens have a relationship that shocks both their families in this potty-mouthed, »

Must watch! Danny DeVito’s festival short ‘Curmudgeons’ [Lff 2016]

Danny DeVito is currently attending the BFI London Film Festival to debut his new 16-minute short Curmudgeons which stars his daughter Lucy, and the late David Margulies.

DeVito directs as well as co-stars in this short gem that will play at various other festivals around the world as the year rolls on. Here’s the synopsis:

The best part of getting old is no longer caring what anybody thinks. Eighty years-old and in assisted living, Ralph Pajovic is involved in a relationship that makes his family anxious. On a crisp Winter day, his unlucky-in-love granddaughter comes for what seems like an ordinary visit. A curmudgeon by nature, Ralph can’t possibly predict the surprise she has in store for him. 

You can watch Curmudgeons in its entirety below via the Vimeo player where it plays exclusively…
