Megan Fox Arrives in 'New Girl' Season 5 Trailer

4 February 2016 9:26 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in September, Fox announced that their hit sitcom New Girl will be getting a new roommate, with Megan Fox signing on for a multi-episode guest starring arc in the show. We got our first brief glimpse at the actress in a trailer that surfaced in December, but Entertainment Weekly has debuted a new trailer and photos from next week's episode, Reagan, airing Tuesday, February 9, with even more footage of the guest star. This trailer reveals that the actress' character, Reagan, has a history with Cece (Hannah Simone), who both "hooked up" at the MTV Beach House.

The casting move was made after Zooey Deschanel had a baby in real life, causing her to be absent from the show, leading to Megan Fox being cast. Her character Reagan will debut in next week's episode, and is described as a straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep, who comes to town on business and rents out Jess' room, »

Megan Fox Becomes The Newest New Girl In Latest Teaser For Season 5

4 February 2016 9:07 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s Fox on Fox in the new teaser for New Girl season 5, with today’s teaser heralding the arrival of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles actress and guest star Megan Fox.

Filling the void left by series stalwart Zooey Deschanel – who took a brief hiatus from the show for maternity leave – Fox is on board to play the role of a Reagan, described as “a gorgeous, straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep who comes to town on business and shakes things up in the loft when she rents out Jess’ room while she is sequestered on jury duty.”

Taking up the mantle of the newest New Girl, the latest clip for the series’ return is more of an introduction to how Fox’s newcomer will interact with her new friends, particularly Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Nick (Jake Johnson). With Deschanel’s Jess absent on jury duty, series showrunner Liz Meriweather teased just »

Kevin James Heads Netflix Original Action/Comedy True Memoirs Of An International Assassin

3 February 2016 10:24 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Looks like Kevin James is going to be leading a Netflix original film, and despite the above featured image, it is a not a Paul Blart: Mall Cop movie. The streaming service has announced today that the actor/comedian will be heading the film entitled True Memoirs Of An International Assassin. 

The film's synopsis is as follows:

"A mild-mannered would-be author gets mistaken for a killer-for-hire when his fictional novel about an international assassin is published as a true story.  The book is a huge success and he is suddenly kidnapped and taken to Venezuela and forced into an assassination plot."

True Memoirs Of An International Assassin is directed by Jeff Wadlow, who is likely best known for directing Kick-ass 2, and will be hitting Netflix some time in 2016.

While I feel no particular way or another about this film, I'm very interested to see the online interest. Given James' »

[Review] Hell and Back

6 January 2016 7:23 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

You may have noticed posters for the R-rated, stop-motion animated comedy Hell and Back throughout the summer and fall seasons in anticipation of its October release only to find it didn’t come to a theater near you. It was released and took in about $150,000 on the few screens it graced to the chagrin of a ton of hopeful Nick Swardson fans complaining on the movie’s Facebook page about their inability to watch. So this week brings with it a belated VOD Christmas gift for many. To all those who believe themselves one of these brave souls chomping at the bit, please look deep inside yourself and really ask whether Swardson is your God because his being merely a passing chuckle won’t be enough to save you.

New Girl Season 5 Premiere Recap: Stings Like a Mother

5 January 2016 5:30 PM, PST | | See recent news »

We understand the sentiment, Schmidt, but was Nick really your first choice for best man?

Because, as we see in New Girl‘s Season 5 premiere, the law school dropout/minority bar owner/panic moonwalker is incapable of handling even the most basic head groomsman task without messing it up — and possibly committing a felony in the process.
