9 November 2013 1:13 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ted Cruz and Anthony Weiner don’t see eye to eye on much politically, and they’re at very different stages of their careers. Yet they had one thing in common Friday, as both ventured into the waters of latenight comedy: Cruz, the filibustering Texas senator, appearing on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno;” and Weiner, the disgraced congressman, failed New York mayoral candidate and ready-made punchline, dropping in on “Real Time With Bill Maher.”

Sen. Ted Cruz to Make Late-Night Debut on ‘Tonight Show’

30 October 2013 12:07 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

As the subject of much recent late-night humor, outspoken anti-Obamacare Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is getting the opportunity to turn the tables on the genre. Cruz will make his first late-night appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” on Nov. 8, taking to the NBC show’s couch to discuss the recent government shutdown, the debt ceiling, the gridlock in Washington and the current state of the Republican Party, the network said.

Austin, Texas-based filmmaker Michael Tully’s [pictured] coming-of-age-vacation comedy Ping Pong Summer kicks off the latest edition of Us in Progress on Thursday.

The Us in Progress initiative, hosted by the Champs Elysées Film Festival, will showcase five features by independent Us filmmakers over the coming two days to some 30 European buyers.

Set against the Maryland beach resort of Ocean City, Ping Pong Summer combines a cast of unknown adolescent actors with established big screen stars Susan Sarandon and John Hannah.

The picture was among six recipients last year of a $300,000 grant from the San Francisco Film Society and the Kenneth Rainin Foundation. Other projects in that selection included Fruitvale and Short Term 12.

Tully’s previous films include Cocaine Angel, Silver Jew and Septien.

Also screening on Thursday is New York director Leah Meyerhoff’s I Believe in Unicorns about a teenager who runs »
