New Line Ensemble Comedy Life Of The Party Recruits Modern Family’s Julie Bowen

11 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

New Line’s casting spree for ensemble comedy Life of the Party continues today, with The Hollywood Reporter bringing word that Modern Family star Julie Bowen has been cast as the nemesis of Melissa McCarthy’s central lead.

McCarthy, who is poised to once more collaborate with husband and writing partner Ben Falcone, will assume the role of a character named Deanna, with new recruit Matt Walsh playing her fictitious husband, Dan. Other than the fact New Line has likened its ensemble piece to Rodney Dangerfield’s Back to School, little is known about the core premise of Life of the Party. Then again, with production currently underway in Atlanta, expect some tangible details to begin emerging onto the interwebs very soon indeed – including how the dynamic between McCarthy’s lead and Bowen’s quasi-antagonist will shake out.

Rounding out that preliminary casting sheet are Maya Rudolph, Community star Gillian Jacobs, »

45 TV Shows You Need To Catch This Fall 1 of 46   

Click to skip The Strain

When? August 28th at 10pm on FX

Why? Because three seasons in and The Strain still remains a juicy, pulpy, often delectable piece of summer programming.

You're The Worst

When? August 31st at 10pm on Fxx

Why? Anticipating where creator/writer Stephen Falk will pick up after last year’s epically poignant and romantic cliffhanger has made 2016 slow to a crawl, so here’s to hoping season 3 keeps You’re the Worst on the creative and bravely cutting upswing it's been on since the pilot.

Narcos

When? September 2nd on Netflix

Why? Narcos took everyone by storm last year and proved to be one of the streaming service's biggest hits. With season 2 set to place a larger focus on Pablo, we're giddy with anticipation to see where it can go from here.

Summer Movie Winners and Losers: A Critic’s Round-Up

28 August 2016 12:37 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the movie world, the difference between success and failure will always be measured, to a degree, at the box office. But that can’t be the only measure. What follows is a semi-objective (as in: let’s tote up a few numbers and see what they mean) and critically subjective (as in: here’s what was good, whether or not it made money) compilation of the highlights and lowlights of the 2016 summer movie season. Please feel free to agree, disagree, or call out your own favorites and duds.

Winner: The way to get animated  Twenty-one years ago, the launch of Pixar didn’t just herald the age of digital animation. It kicked off a renaissance in mainstream animated filmmaking that, miraculously, has only grown. Nearly all of these films are products for children, yet it’s an exhilarating paradox that the best of them are defined by what we »

Top 5 times Melissa McCarthy made us Lol

Top 5 times Melissa McCarthy made us Lol Top 5 times Melissa McCarthy made us Lol Adriana Floridia8/26/2016 11:47:00 Am

Today we are celebrating the birthday of Melissa McCarthy, who is arguably the current Queen of comedy. 

She first caught our attention with a supporting role in "Gilmore Girls" playing the best friend of Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham). She continued her work on television in the popular sitcom "Mike and Molly", but it was clear that McCarthy's comedic talent would soon allow her to become a full fledged movie star.

Most notably, her supporting turn in the breakthrough comedy Bridesmaids gave her not just a unique character in Megan, but also earned her a rare Academy Award nomination for a comedic performance. Those are few and far between, but it only proved the unstoppable force of McCarthy, who has gone on to headline countless comedy films including The Heat, Spy and The Boss. »

Melissa McCarthy's Funniest Onscreen Moments of All Time

25 August 2016 9:05 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Melissa McCarthy has been nothing short of hilarious in movies like Bridesmaids and Spy, as well as her TV work on Mike and Molly and Saturday Night Live, to name a few roles. Thanks to a sense of physical comedy that would make Lucille Ball proud (we're convinced that every time McCarthy throws herself down a flight of stairs, an angel gains its wings) and impeccable comedic timing, she's solidified herself as one of Hollywood's most hysterical leading ladies. Keep reading to see all of her best onscreen moments, and check out her incredible appearance on Lip Sync Battle. »

When Racism and Sexism Are Online Terror: The Attacks on Leslie Jones

25 August 2016 3:21 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

When Ghostbusters was announced as being rebooted with an all-female team, a certain segment of the population was not happy.  It didn’t matter that Kristen WiigMelissa McCarthyKate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones were (and are) all well-vetted comedic talents.  The angry complaints of some fanboys starting piling on immediately. This giant reaction is a well-documented thing – and its size isn’t being exaggerated. It started when the reboot was announced, continued with the release of the first photo, and ramped up even more with the first trailer.  The trailer quickly broke the record for having the most dislikes of any trailer on YouTube.  On top of this,

The Rock Named World’s Highest-Paid Actor, Earning Nearly $20 Million More Than Highest-Paid Actress, Jennifer Lawrence

25 August 2016 2:55 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson tops Forbes’ list of the highest-paid actors in the world this year, bringing in nearly $65 million over the past year. His work on the “Fast and Furious” franchise and “San Andreas” helped him dethroned Robert Downey, Jr., who had held the title for three consecutive years.

Jennifer Lawrence tops the list of highest-paid actresses, with a total of $46 million — nearly $20 million less than The Rock. (She comes in sixth overall, behind Jackie Chan, Matt Damon, Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp.) For all the attention that Hollywood’s pay disparity has received in recent months and years, little appears to have changed. Full list below:

Dwayne Johnson And Jennifer Lawrence Make All The Money

25 August 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In case you didn’t feel poor enough already, Forbes has gone and done their usual ranking of the highest paid actors in the world. At the top this year are two somewhat surprising names, with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jennifer Lawrence taking the top of the male and female lists respectively.

According to Forbes, Johnson tops out the list with a $64.5 million pay check, coming out several million ahead of the runner-up Jackie Chan, who only – ahem – brings in $61 million with films in China. Matt Damon came in third due to The Martian (he made $55 million this year), while Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp are just really slumming it with $53 and $48 million respectively.

Over with the ladies, Jennifer Lawrence made $46 million, given The Hunger Games finale, and the upcoming Passengers. Melissa McCarthy is right behind her with $33 million, while Scarlett Johansson lags behind on a scant $25 million. Are you feeling poor yet? »

Newswire: Veep’s Matt Walsh will get down with Melissa McCarthy in Life Of The Party

25 August 2016 12:23 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The Veep gang may all be going their separate ways after a hard-won defeat at the polls, but Matt Walsh is keeping busy. He stars in the upcoming Keeping Up With The Joneses, along with the impossibly-beautiful Gal Gadot and Jon Hamm. The Office Christmas Party actor was also recently cast in A Stupid And Futile Gesture, the National Lampoon origin story starring Will Forte, which was written by Walsh’s Childrens Hospital collaborators, Michael Colton and John Aboud. The details of his latest role are being kept tightly under wraps, but Variety reports that Walsh has signed on for Melissa McCarthy’s Life Of The Party.

The film is McCarthy’s latest collaboration with husband Ben Falcone, who will direct. It’s already been scheduled for release on May 11, 2018. Plot info is scant, but Life Of The Party is reportedly similar in tone to Back To School ...

Matt Walsh Joins Melissa McCarthy’s Life Of The Party

25 August 2016 11:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Veep star and Ghostbusters‘ Homeland Security guy Matt Walsh has joined up with his erstwhile co-star Melissa McCarthy yet again, this time in McCarthy’s very own Life of the Party. According to Variety, Walsh will play McCarthy’s husband Dan in the comedy scripted by McCarthy and  her husband Ben Falcone.

Very little has been released about Life of the Party so far. It was initially described as being similar to Rodney Dangerfield’s Back to School, so that gives us some idea of what we’re in for. Dare we hope for a return-to-college comedy with McCarthy taking on a similar role to the profane Dangerfield? Yes, I think we dare.

The only other details known are the names of McCarthy and Walsh’s characters – Deanna and Dan – and the fact that Dan is “always wearing golf pants.” I’m afraid that’s not much of a plot. »

I'm bad at most things."The Emmy nominee, who is up for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series, says being on the show is a dream come true. »

Forbes Hollywood rich list: who are Fan Bingbing and Deepika Padukone?

24 August 2016 7:37 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Both actors feature in the top 10 – but unlike Jennifer Lawrence, who took the number one spot, you might not have heard of either of them

The Forbes list of the world’s richest actresses provides a heaven-sent opportunity to slaver over photos of beautiful women and very large sums of money: solemnly recorded figures that can really be no more than intelligent guesswork. In pretty much the same spirit, Forbes regularly provides an enjoyable ranking of the richest fictional people, from Jay Gatsby to Smaug, complete with estimated dollar amounts.

This year, Jennifer Lawrence is top of the actress list, with a supposed pre-tax income of $46m. Melissa McCarthy comes in second with a putative $33m and Scarlett Johansson gets bronze with what could plausibly be $25m.
