28 February 2015 12:28 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Scrubs” alumna Sarah Chalke has landed another comedy.

Chalke will star opposite Rob Riggle in the Fox family comedy pilot “48 Hours ‘Til Monday,” our sister site TVLine reports.

The actress, who currently has a recurring role on Rainn Wilson’s crime dramedy “Backstrom,” will play Kelly Bishop, Riggle’s wife and mother to their three children. Her character struggles with the realities of being a stay-at-home mom after quitting her job as a TV news producer, while Riggle plays Charlie — a man desperate to make the best of his weekends.

Jane Curtin, as Kelly’s chain-smoking mother Louise, and Merrin Dungey, as her frenemy Candace, round out the cast.

The series from Universal Television comes from “The Mindy Project’s” Charlie Grandy, who wrote the pilot and will also serve as exec producer with Peter Traugott and Rachel Kaplan (“Manhattan Love Story”).

Michael Keaton: his 10 greatest screen characters

24 February 2015 6:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Batman to Birdman and everything in between, we take a look at Michael Keaton's top 10 most memorable roles...

Sometimes, the Oscars have a tendency of giving out awards to actors who are seen to have paid their dues, perhaps not for the best performance of that year or even for the particular actor's own best performance, but to recognise past work. Michael Keaton is not the most likely of these, but this could be why some speculated that he was an early favourite for this year's Best Actor award, for his performance in Birdman.

The later frontrunner Eddie Redmayne rightfully and very graciously wound up taking it home for his work as Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, though Birdman went on to take home the main prize for Best Picture and a number of other major awards.

It would hardly have been a major upset if »

Rob Riggle, Jane Curtin Co-star in Fox Comedy 48 Hours Til Monday

24 February 2015 12:01 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The man who did Dr. Porkenheimer's Boner Juice is teaming up with a legendary Weekend Update anchor to do a show about a husband/father trying to ensure his family has fun weekends. Rob Riggle plays the father figure in this 30-minute single-cam sitcom, and Jane Curtin plays his lax, live-in mother-in-law. Sounds kind of like a mix of Everybody Loves Raymond and Liar Liar, but it'll be called 48 Hours Til Monday. »

Rob Riggle and Jane Curtin to Co-Star in Fox Comedy Pilot ’48 Hours Til Monday’

23 February 2015 6:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rob Riggle has been cast in the lead role of Fox’s pilot “48 Hours Til Monday,” alongside “Saturday Night Live” alum Jane Curtin, Variety has learned.

The single-camera, 30-minute sitcom follows a husband’s “desperate struggle to not let every weekend go completely to hell.”

Riggle will play said husband, Charlie Bishop, described as an energetic, over-committed, yet blindly confident father of three kids who’s happily married to his wife Kelly. At work all week, Charlie relies on weekends to reconnect with his family and be a hands-on father, unlike his own growing up.

Curtin will play Riggle’s mother-in-law, Louise McGill, a wry and fun cigarette-smoking mother, who lives at the home of her grown daughter Kelly (yet to be cast) and her husband Charlie (Riggle), along with her own husband Doug (yet to be cast). Forced to babysit, Louise (Curtin) has a relaxed attitude toward raising children, »

Dumb And Dumber To Blu-Ray Review

17 February 2015 9:57 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Either I have entirely too much time on my hands (I don’t), I’m a self-admitted masochist (getting warmer), or Dumb And Dumber To is so horrendously brain-numbing that I couldn’t let a Blu-Ray review opportunity pass me by. My colleague Robert Kojder already wrote a forgiving theatrical review of the appalling comedic atrocity that is Dumb And Dumber To, but I don’t agree that the Farrelly brothers do their most famous property right by way of a repetitive, self-referential sequel. Opinions make the world go ’round, but this is one time I had to make my side heard.

While I can’t exactly call Dumb And Dumber To the Mortdecai of 2014 (because I genuinely laughed, albeit three whole times), this soulless husk of a comedic effort reeks of cash-grab incentives around every previously-explored turn. There are moments where we pity Jim Carrey and *Emmy Winner* Jeff Daniels, »

'Dead Rising' Poster: Jesse Metcalfe Fights a Zombie Army

13 February 2015 1:41 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Less than one month after the first trailer debuted for the upcoming digital feature Dead Rising: Watchtower, Crackle has now unveiled the poster, featuring star Jesse Metcalfe wielding what is described as a "sledge saw," a combination of a sledge hammer and a chainsaw. Once Upon a Time star Meghan Ory is also seen in the poster, brandishing another dual weapon, which is both a samurai sword and a shovel.

Dead Rising: Watchtower takes place during a large-scale zombie outbreak. When a mandatory government vaccine fails to stop the infection from spreading, the four leads must evade infection while also pursuing the root of the epidemic, with all signs pointing to a government conspiracy. Politics, public paranoia, and media coverage play an important role in the story's narrative. The cast also includes Virginia Madsen (Sideways), Dennis Haysbert (Men, Women & Children), and Rob Riggle (Let's Be Cops, 21 Jump Street).

News Nuggets: Jon Stewart shocks viewers by departing 'Daily Show' later this year

10 February 2015 5:40 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Emmy champ Jon Stewart shocks his studio audience at Tuesday's taping by announcing he is leaving "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" later this year. He took over the Comedy Central program from Craig Kilborn in 1999 and has been its satirical news anchor ever since. It dominated the Emmy Awards as Best Variety Series for 10 straight years from 2003 through 2012. The show helped start the careers of Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Ed Helms, Rob Riggle, John Oliver, and Larry Wilmore. The Wrap -Break- Anne Thompson offers six romantic reasons that "Fifty Shades of Grey" will rock the box office this weekend. Even though the book by E.L. James is quite steamy, it is ultimately a classic romance where the "smart innocent beauty with limited means meets experienced but troubled wealthy grey-eyed rake." She also provides a round-up of reviews for the film starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson. Thompson on Hollywood »
