Taye Diggs will be Broadway's sixth Hedwig, following the high-octane runs of Neil Patrick Harris, Andrew Rannells, Michael C. Hall, Og John Cameron Mitchell, and the latest, Darren Criss. Diggs is obviously no stranger to the theater, but it's been a while since he's been on the stage, last appearing in 2005's Off-Broadway production A Soldier's Play. Diggs will put on some makeup and turn on the eight-track for 12 weeks starting July 22. »

Whether it’s a ruling patriarch in Meet the Parents or a best friend revisiting his youth in Last Vegas, Hollywood veteran Robert De Niro is no stranger to playing the archetypal old guy in movies. One who doesn’t understand the Internet or the lingo of 2015. All of these tropes and more can be glimpsed in the first trailer for Nancy Meyers’ new comedy, The Intern, but at its core it’s about an unlikely friendship between De Niro and Interstellar star Anne Hathaway.
Stepping into the shoes of one Ben Whittaker, Meyers’ latest will see De Niro play a man fed up with retirement, and so he quickly enrolls in an internship program with a online fashion giant in order to get back into the swing of things. Here, he’ll meet Jules Ostin (Hathaway), a well-established visionary who founded the company herself and is now overseeing its »

The Warner Bros film centres on Jules (Hathaway), the founder of a growing fashion website, who takes on an ageing intern named Ben (De Niro).
As pressure at work grows, she finds herself relying on Ben more and more, both personally and professionally.
Meanwhile, it was recently reported that one of Hathaway's forthcoming projects, Colossal, is a cross between Godzilla and Being John Malkovich.
The Intern will be released in the Us on September 25 and in the UK on October 2. »
The trailer for The Intern almost feels like a bizarro The Devil Wears Prada at first - this time, Anne Hathaway comes clacking in as the high-powered CEO of a fashion website, with Robert De Niro playing her new employee (the titular intern) - but Hathaway is no Miranda Priestly. And of course, De Niro is in his 70s, so this movie already has a very different comedic premise built in, but it's not just a bunch of funny old-guy jokes (though there are those). No, leave it to Nancy Meyers to give us a workplace comedy that feels fresh and modern, but that is also very sweet. Not only is De Niro an interesting foil to Hathaway's character, Jules, he also starts to become her friend. It's all pretty cute, and even better is the supporting cast, which includes two Workaholics, Andrew Rannells, and Nat Wolff. The Intern comes out Sept. »
The last time Anne Hathaway worked in fashion on screen, it was for The Devil Wears Prada. In The Intern, she’s the boss this time, and the fresh-faced newcomer hoping to make their mark on the office is... Robert De Niro? Take a look at the trailer, which might shed some more light on the matter.Nancy Meyers is behind the new comedy, which stars Hathaway as Jules Ostin, the founder of a fashion site who needs some new help around the office. Which is where 70-year-old widower Ben Whittaker (De Niro) comes in, a man that has found that retirement isn’t all he might have hoped for, and has decided to get back in business. But the position of senior intern at Jules’ web business doesn’t immediately seem to be the perfect fit.It’s fun to see the two Oscar winners sparking off each other, »
De Niro stars as Ben Whittaker, a 70-year-old widower who has discovered that retirement isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Seizing an opportunity to get back in the game, he becomes a senior intern at an online fashion site, founded and run by Jules Ostin (Hathaway).

Who wouldn’t want to be Anne Hathaway’s best friend?
The first trailer for The Intern has acting legend Robert De Niro playing that role as the two star in writer/director Nancy Meyers’ latest comedy. The film also stars Rene Russo, Anders Holm, Andrew Rannells, Adam Devine, Celia Weston, Nat Wolff, Linda Lavin and Zack Perlman.
The Intern follows De Niro as Ben Whitaker, a retired widower who decides to get back in the game by becoming a “senior intern” at a major fashion company, founded and run by Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway). Before long, Ben proves himself a valuable member of the team and an important person in Jules’ life.
Meyers also directed and wrote The Parent Trap, Something’s Gotta Give, It’s Complicated, and The Holiday so the comedic tone hits much the same, even though they exchange a romantic relationship for a more platonic one. »

"It's moments like this you know you need someone you can count on." Warner Bros has debuted the first trailer for The Intern, a comedy about a young CEO who takes on an old intern. Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro star, with Hathaway playing the CEO and De Niro playing the intern at her company. In addition: Adam DeVine, Rene Russo, Anders Holm and Andrew Rannells pop up here and there, too. As cheesy as this sounds, I actually think it looks pretty good, it's charming. It's not overly snarky about the "old dude doesn't get young modern world" stuff, and it has some sentimentality to it that seems to work well. I saw even more footage at CinemaCon, and I might say don't completely ignore this one. Give it a shot. Here's the first official trailer for Nancy Meyers' The Intern, direct from Warner Bros' YouTube: In The Intern, »

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for their upcoming comedy, The Intern. Written and directed by the oscar-nominated filmmaker Nancy Meyers (It's Complicated, Something's Gotta Give), the film stars Robert De Niro as Ben Whitaker, a retired widower who decides to get back in the game by becoming a "senior intern" at a major fashion company, founded and run by Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway). Before long, Ben proves himself a valuable member of the team and an important person in Jules' life. The Intern also stars Rene Russo, Anders Holm, Andrew Rannells, Adam Devine, Celia Weston, Nat Wolff, Linda Lavin and Zack Perlman. The film arrives in theaters September 15, 2015. Trailer via Warner Bros. Pictures. The trailer is essentially three minutes of Robert De Niro complimenting Anne Hathaway in varied, but always earnest, ways. Is his character constantly doped up on Valium or something? This is definitely a Nancy Meyers movie. »

Academy Award winners Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway star together in Warner Bros. Pictures' The Intern. Oscar-nominated and award-winning filmmaker Nancy Meyers is directing the dramatic comedy from her own screenplay. But more important than all of that is the fact that this upcoming release also contains an award-worthy performance from none other than Adam DeVine of Workaholics and Pitch Perfect! We have the first trailer, which Warner Bros. just debuted seconds ago.

John Cameron Mitchell, the co-creator and original star of Hedwig and the Angry Inch; and Stephen Schwartz, the veteran composer behind such iconic musicals as Godspell, Pippin and Wicked, have both been tapped to receive special Tony Awards at the June 7 ceremony. Mitchell will be presented with the 2015 Special Tony Award, fresh off his return to the role of the transgender rocker in the cult musical that he co-wrote with composer-lyricist Stephen Trask. Following in the heels of Neil Patrick Harris, Andrew Rannells and Michael C. Hall, Mitchell played Hedwig in a triumphant three-month

Recently, Lena Dunham has been fantasizing about making a Girls movie when they're 40. "We'd want to wait long enough for something to have really gone down," she told Variety. This got us wondering, naturally, where some of the characters in the show would be in ten or so years. Vulture caught up with the Girls guys, Alex Karpovsky and Andrew Rannells, at Housing Works' third annual Groundbreaker Awards gala (which celebrated contributions to the fight against HIV/AIDS and homelessness) to see what they hope Ray and Elijah will be doing."Maybe [Ray]'s writing a novel somewhere in the Baja Peninsula of Mexico, drinking mescal and running a very, very small beachside coconut coffee shack," Karpovsky said Wednesday night at the Metropolitan Pavilion. "He'd be happy for a while doing that." Same. "I feel like there's a potential for Elijah to be a studio head," Rannells added. "Like I feel »

With Hollywood looking for franchises wherever it can find them, it seems mighty odd that The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, a highly successful novel with a film adaptation that had Rooney Mara, David Fincher, and James Friggin’ Bond attached, is not already swimming in sequels. The American version of Stieg Larsson’s novel wasn’t exactly a blockbuster, but it made $233 million worldwide on a $90 million budget. It seems like a no-brainer.
Now there’s talk from THR that a sequel could arrive soon enough, but Sony is debating the possibility of turning Larsson’s last two books, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, into a single film. They may even lump in a new novel starring hacker Lisbeth Salander by David Lagercrantz called The Girl in the Spider’s Web. Larsson passed away in 2004, before the books were even »

Briefly: Even though Andrew Rannells has broken out due to his recurring role in the HBO series "Girls," the actor had plenty of success as part of the original cast of the Broadway musical The Book of Mormon, for which he wont a Grammy and a Tony. But now he's taking significant roles in moves with a turn in Nancy Meyers forthcoming comedy The Intern. Though he's keen to make his own movies too as Deadline reports Universal has just picked up and untitled comedy pitch that Rannells will write with Mike Doyle, one of the cast members of Jersey Boys. In addition, "Girls" producer Judd Apatow will produce the film. There's no plot details yet, but this could be Rannells' chance for his own Trainwreck like Amy Schumer. We'll see. »

Exclusive: Universal Pictures has acquired an untitled comedy pitch that Girls co-star Andrew Rannells and Jersey Boys castmember Mike Doyle will write. It’s a potential star vehicle for Rannells, and Judd Apatow will produce it under his Apatow Productions banner. They’re keeping the logline quiet, but the studio and Apatow are keen to make it work with Rannells, a Grammy winner and Tony nominee for his breakout role in Broadway’s The Book Of Mormon. He got his big movie… »
Edie Falco, “Boardwalk Empire” creator Terence Winter, “Recount” and “Game Change” writer Danny Strong and “Girls” alum Andrew Rannells were among those making the rounds. “Veep’s” Julia Louis-Dreyfus herself huddled for a long time at a table with Katie Couric. CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield was also hovering around, no doubt looking for scoops about Selina Meyer’s next moves.
Michael Lombardo and other HBO execs were on hand to cheer the launch of the latest campaign, but a group snuck off to an upstairs room every so often to catch up with the Ncaa men’s basketball championship game.
The setting was complete with an electric “Potus” sign parked behind the bar and a photo-op installation with plenty of American flags. Four more years, indeed.

The true saving grace of the fourth season of "Girls" was Andrew Rannells' Elijah. While the series itself became uneven and occasionally quite frustrating, every scene -- every line of dialogue, even -- involving Elijah brought it back to life. Which is in large part due to how fantastic an actor Rannells is. His timing and delivery is impeccable, and he breathes layers into a character that could have easily been a caricature. Because Elijah is an old school representation when it comes to gay characters on television, at least in a certain sense. He's there to deliver witty lines to the oh-so-lost women around him while always impeccably dressed and without much of a storyline of his own. But Rannells and the writing team at "Girls" collectively rise above this. Elijah has more insight and wisdom than all four lead characters combined, and is by far the most likeable character on the show. »
