'Home': Jim Parsons and Rihanna are the world's last hope for survival in animated alien film

About seven years ago, director Tim Johnson was looking for a good book to read his two sons, aged 5 and 7 at the time. After a recommendation from The New York Times, he stumbled upon Adam Rex’s The True Meaning of Smekday and couldn’t put it down—literally. “The first night I read them two chapters, but I think I ended up reading the whole thing alone in one night,” Johnson tells EW. Now Johnson has compiled an all-star voice cast, including Jim Parsons, Rihanna and Steve Martin to adapt the quirky book into Home, what he calls a »

Ask Matt: Men Getting Married, 24, Blacklist, TNT Shows and the Emmys

21 July 2014 6:08 AM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Send questions and comments to and follow me on Twitter!

Question: I have never been a fan of Two and a Half Men (tried to watch it years ago, but the only thing I found funny was Conchata Ferrell) and never understood how it has stayed on the air for so long. I saw that creator Chuck Lorre is planning on the main storyline next season to be about the two main characters (Walden and Alan, both heterosexual) "marrying" each other in order for Walden to achieve his goal of adopting a child. To me, I find this appalling on so many levels. Gay men and women (and their straight allies) have fought for so long for equal marriage rights, so having two straight men "marry" just seems like a mockery for those fighting for marriage equality. I am a little ashamed of Lorre even coming up »

Film Review: ‘Wish I Was Here’ Will Make You Wish You Weren’t There

18 July 2014 9:47 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – Writer, director and lead actor Zach Braff has put it on the line for his latest feature, “Wish I Was Here.” He infamously used a crowd funding Kickstarter campaign to maintain creative control of the film, but he needn’t have bothered. The movie result is a sappy, high concept emotional manipulator with no basis in authenticity, and that might be the best thing that can be said about it.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

This film wasn’t something that showcased what makes Braff interesting. Unlike his successful cult film of ten years ago, “Garden State,” Braff casts himself in a circumstance unlike his usual character, and too far from his real life for him to understand it (and he wrote it!). Braff plays a father in this film, but with no chemistry with his kids or wife – portrayed by Kate Hudson – and he disarmingly seems estranged from the family. Some might »

Wish I Was Here – The Review

17 July 2014 6:48 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Hard to believe, but it’s been a full ten years since Zach Braff, best known for his lead role on the TV sitcom “Scrubs”, released his feature film-making debut, writing, directing , and starring in Garden State. The modest box-office hit was a character study about a young man, played by Braff, in his twenties returning to his home town and learning to enjoy life again, thanks to a local free spirit played by Natlaie Portman. It generated a passionate group of fans who were eager for a follow-up from Braff. After a few more years on the TV show, a couple of movie acting gigs, and a recent stint in a Broadway musical, he surprised everyone with an internet announcement. Braff was ready for his second directorial effort, but he needed help to make the film the way he wanted…financial help. And so he launched a fund-raising effort through the Kickstarter website. »

The eighth season of CBS’ flagship show The Big Bang Theory is set to start production on July 30th, but with two weeks to go the contracts of its main cast are yet to be agreed. Deadline are saying that if deals cannot be agreed the production could be delayed. However, CBS are confident the 22nd September start date where the show will have an hour-long special.

This is not the first time the cast of The Big Bang Theory have gone into production without contracts sorted.

But the difference in that situation is that they had contacts that were set to expire so they were still required to work.
