Rob Lowe on Grinding On After ‘The Grinder,’ and Why It Still Deserves Awards Love (Consider This)

20 June 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The funny thing about the Emmys is how long the campaign season actually runs. Even though the first round of voting takes place in June (with nominations announced on July 14), the PR machines kick in as early as February – for awards that aren’t announced until September 18. That means some Emmy “For Your Consideration” interviews are conducted long before stars and producers learn the fate of their shows.

Such was the case of Rob Lowe and his exquisite experiment, “The Grinder.” Indiewire spoke with the talented thespian a month before Fox axed the critically-hailed comedy, and — while we spoke again for the season finale — what he had to say at the time is relevant to what happened to “The Grinder.” We talked to him again after news of the cancellation hit, and the below interview represents a lightly edited transcript of those two conversations.

Most importantly, Lowe’s impeccable, daring »

Fox Cancels ‘The Grinder,’ ‘Grandfathered,’ ‘Bordertown’ After First Seasons

12 May 2016 5:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox has cancelled “Grandfathered,” “The Grinder” and animated comedy “Bordertown,” Variety has learned.

The Grinder” starred Rob Lowe, “Grandfathered” starred John Stamos, and “Bordertown” hailed from “Family Guy” exec producers Seth MacFarlane and Mark Hentemann. All three comedies launched this past TV season, with “Grinder” and “Grandfathered” paired together on Tuesdays as a back-to-back night of new sitcoms with famous faces, and “Bordertown” airing Sunday night as part of Fox’s animation block.

Lowe tweeted his reaction to the cancellation on Thursday afternoon.

#TheGrinder was not renewed by @Foxtv It was unapologetically original, smart, funny and had a murder's row of talent. #GrinderRests.

Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) May 12, 2016

The great news is, that film is forever. And I'm thrilled to have 22 episodes that were as acclaimed as they were. Time well spent!

Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) May 12, 2016

And there is still Grindr. So there's that. #NotAllBadNews

The D Train (aka Bad Bromance) movie review: when idiot men can do no wrong

14 March 2016 3:02 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Woefully bad feint at a dramedy in which everyone agrees the “hero” is a terrible excuse for a man… and he gets the message that he is awesome anyway. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

If there is a point to this woefully unfunny, outright galling feint at a dramedy, I can’t find it. I mean, it cannot possibly be that the way for a man to regain his mojo — or to find it in the first place, if he seems to have never had any — is to spin a complicated web of deceit that involves lying and cheating and trashing the few important relationships in his life? Can it? Jack Black (Goosebumps, Sex Tape) is the same-old hapless schmoe he always plays, but his Dan Landsman isn’t a supposedly lovable loser this time, »

Giveaway – Win Jack Black and James Marsden’s Bad Bromance on DVD

20 January 2016 5:52 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s like a Lady Gaga song, just with more ‘bros’. And we have three copies to give away.

Written and directed by Jarrad Paul (Yes Man) and Andrew Mogel, Bad Bromance stars Jack Black (Kung Fu Panda series, School of Rock) as Dan Landsman, the socially awkward head of a high school reunion committee determined to finally win his former classmates’ approval by convincing the most popular guy from their graduating class, Oliver Lawless, played by James Marsden (X-Men series, Enchanted), to attend their reunion. Willing to do anything – including engaging in a night of hilariously debauched partying that must be seen to be believed – Dan soon discovers he may have gone too far in the name of high school popularity.

Here’s a clip of the movie…

Bad Bromance is out to buy on DVD now.

The competition closes at midnight on Sunday, January 31st. UK readers only please. »

Bad Bromance. That’s an interesting title… You might not have heard it till the debut of this movie on DVD. Hang on though. Did anyone go and see The D Train in UK cinemas? I tried. It was screening once a day at a cinema 20 minutes drive away from me and only at 11pm every night. Talk about burying a movie. Maybe that’s why The D Train has been retitled Bad Bromance for its DVD release? Or maybe it’s because this “comedy” is anything but and the the reviews of the cinema release were less than stellar.

The film sees Jack Black (School of Rock) star as Dan “The D Train” (see, »
