We Picked Trump's Cabinet from the Cast of Celebrity Apprentice

19 July 2016 9:50 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Republican candidate for president Donald Trump has already announced at least one member of his presumptive Cabinet - running mate Mike Pence, who would serve as Vice President - but the rest of the picks remain a mystery. Perhaps because Trump has said that he has "a very good brain" and would "consult" himself on, for example, foreign policy if elected, we haven't gotten a very clear image of what his Cabinet would look like. Trump has, however, tapped former Celebrity Apprentice star Omarosa Manigault as director of African-American outreach for his campaign. That appointment had us scratching our heads, »

Review: ‘Doc & Darryl’ Tells a Pair of Somber Biographies the Way ’30 for 30′ Does Best

14 July 2016 5:57 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Despite the involvement of two directors making their “30 for 30” debut, “Doc & Darryl” is a sports story told in the Espn documentary series’ house style. Reliving the ascent, precipitous decline and muted return of Darryl Strawberry and Dwight “Doc” Gooden, directors Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio adhere to the familiar format, letting the intertwined stories of the two men’s tragedy-laden lives speak for themselves.

Strawberry and Gooden were two electrifying rookie talents; the former an outfielder with a special blend of speed and power and the latter a gifted right-handed pitcher and strikeout machine. Apatow and Bonfiglio show how, after entering pro baseball within a season of each other, they quickly became staples of sports page headlines and New York nightlife alike. Despite the growing spectre of substance abuse, the two became cornerstones of the 1986 New York Mets’ improbable championship run (capped off by a World Series victory prominently featured »

‘Doc & Darryl': How Darryl Strawberry Got Clean

14 July 2016 3:46 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The new “30 for 30” film “Doc & Darryl” finds the two former teammates meeting in a Queens diner. Darryl Strawberry is clean and sober, and he dedicates his time to other addicts. Dwight Gooden is fidgety and appears anxious. The question of his sobriety is never addressed. Asked by TheWrap how his former teammate was doing in his years-long battle with cocaine and alcohol, Strawberry said this: “I know it wasn’t , and clearly they didn’t probably want to expose that. It seemed like it was a difficult time — I don’t know if it is.” TheWrap reached out to film co-director. »

Why Judd Apatow Had to Make 'Doc and Darryl'

14 July 2016 6:31 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

On October 28, 1986, an estimated 2.2 million people jammed downtown Manhattan for the New York Mets' World Series victory parade. One person was notably absent from the celebration: Mets pitcher Dwight "Doc" Gooden. Though team reps claimed that their prodigiously talented young hurler had "overslept," the hotshot player was actually watching the parade at home while coming down from a night of heavy partying at the home of his cocaine dealer.

Darryl Strawberry, the Mets' All Star right fielder, had been tasked by the team with picking up Gooden on the way to the parade, »

Doc & Darryl: Judd Apatow checks in with the Mets heroes who fell to earth

13 July 2016 3:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In his first documentary, Judd Apatow takes as his subject the baseball players who became kings of New York, before drugs and alcohol got the better of them

Take two major male stars, surround them with wild and colorful bros, throw in some obstacles and plenty of crazy high jinks and, voilà, you have a Judd Apatow movie. However, the latest Apatow effort, co-directed with Michael Bonfiglio, takes all those ingredients and subverts every expectation: Doc & Darryl is an Espn 30 for 30 documentary debuting on Thursday. It is a sobering look at the parallel paths toward self-destruction and the different roads toward salvation taken by two of baseball’s biggest names of the 1980s, New York Mets team-mates Dwight Gooden and Darryl Strawberry.

In 1983, Strawberry won the National League rookie of the year award with a beautiful home-run swing; Gooden captured the same prize in 1984 and a Cy Young award the »

“I thought it would be much more uplifting,” Apatow said during a Q&A after a screening of the Espn Films “30 for 30” movie in New York on Wednesday. “As it went along, I think we became more and more aware of how recent some of their troubles were, so it changed the documentary in a big way.” Apatow first got involved with the project after Espn Films Manager of Development Jenna Anthony tweeted at the director asking if he had any ideas for “30 for 30,” to which he said, “How about Doc and Darryl?”
