The latest video-game-to-movie adaptation will update an obscure Sega Mega Drive title from 1992 about a young superhero for hire

An obscure Sega Mega Drive title about a slacker who becomes a superhero for hire is the latest video game to become a candidate for a big-screen adaptation, according to Deadline.

They’re all big names with built-in fanbases that will (fingers crossed) turn up opening […]

TV Review: ‘The Detour’

6 April 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jason Jones and Samantha Bee are making a strong bid to be anointed as the First Couple of TV comedy. At the very least, they’ve earned that title at TBS, with “The Daily Show” alumni collaborating on Bee’s “Full Frontal,” and now “The Detour,” a scripted sitcom about a road trip gone terribly wrong that hits the ground running and merits the network’s “Very funny” slogan – at times explosively so.

16 February 2016 2:30 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

"That Justin Theroux guy - where do I know him from?" Depending on whom you ask, you could get a great many answers. Of course, he's the husband of Jennifer Aniston, but he's had a string of notable acting roles too. He could be that guy from The Leftovers, the actor who played the hapless director character in Mulholland Drive, Leslie Knope's short-lived boyfriend on Parks and Recreation, or even the bad guy from Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. However, Theroux is also a screenwriter, and he's credited with a handful of major films that casual movie-goers might not associate with him. »
