Jeremy Jordan sings 'Let It Go' from 'Frozen' at Miscast gala honoring Allison Janney -- Exclusive Video

2 April 2014 12:42 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

On March 31, New York’s McC Theater held its raucous Miscast gala, an annual fundraiser honoring one veteran theater artist — this year, the fearless Allison Janney — with a concert program line-up that features Broadway stars performing songs typically sung by the opposite gender. Last year, you might remember Jeremy Jordan and Jonathan Groff stopping the show with Smash’s “Let Me Be Your Star.” This year was no different, but we’ll get to that. First, Janney.

“I believe that any actor worth their salt has to have done theater,” says Janney, whose history with the stage stretches far back »

Morgan Freeman Leaps for Conservation at ‘Island of Lemurs: Madagascar’ Premiere

29 March 2014 9:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Last time Drew Fellman and David Douglas teamed with Morgan Freeman in 2011, they had the Oscar-winning actor narrate “Born to Be Wild,” their IMAX 3D documentary about orphaned animals. So it was only natural when Fellman returned as writer-director for another documentary about wildlife in peril, “Island of Lemurs: Madagascar,” they brought back both Freeman and Douglas, who stepped in as director after serving as director of photography on “Wild.”

“Once again, it’s a story about courageous individuals engaged in acts of heroism to save some magnificent creatures,” said Freeman at Warner Bros.’ world premiere for “Lemurs” Saturday afternoon at Los Angeles’ California Science Center. “It made sense to turn to this same group of people to tell this kind of story.”

This time the hero of the story is primatologist Patricia Wright, who fights to protect the fragile ecosystem of the lemurs, who have been around since the time of the dinosaurs. »

An addendum to Sergio's box office post... The psychological thriller, Repentance (previously titled Vipaka), which stars Forest WhitakerAnthony MackieSanaa LathanNicole Ari Parker and Mike Epps, opened in a limited theatrical release over the weekend, and managed to earn a respectable $530,000, playing on 152 screens, for an average of $3,487 per screen. The per-screen average is typically more indicative of box office strength, especially for opening weekend, when per-screen averages are expected to be strongest.

26 February 2014 2:40 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Mike Epps is a comedian at heart and one of the funniest comic actors to emerge into the Hollywood scene, but in his latest film, Repentance, he undertakes a serious role as Ben, the loyal brother of Tommy Carter (Anthony Mackie), a spiritual therapist whose successful book attracts the attention of a profoundly disturbed man (Forest Whitaker).  Opening in select theaters on February 28th, the horror-thriller directed by Philippe Caland also stars Sanaa Lathan, Nicole Ari Parker, and Ariana Neal. I recently landed an exclusive interview with Epps who talked about how the project came together, what drew him to the role, why the spiritual undertone of the film appealed to him, the easy directing process with Caland, how he stepped up his acting game opposite Mackie, what it was like shooting on location in New Orleans, and how he escapes boredom by pursuing a multi-faceted career.  He also discussed his upcoming live comedy show, »
