A movie adaptation of ride-sharing tech giant Uber seems inevitable after CEO Travis Kalanick stepped down Tuesday. Scroll through for our dream cast and a few choices for lead role of Kalanick. Travis Kalanick played by Dave Franco We think the younger Franco brother can definitely tackle the role of executive asshole. Travis Kalanick played by Adam Devine We think the “Workaholics” and “Pitch Perfect” star could bring a good amount of “bro” to the role. Travis Kalanick played by Jeremy Piven Our next possibility for the ex-ceo is Piven. This seems like a good fit after “Entourage.” »

Rebel Wilson was victorious in court on Thursday, winning a defamation trial against a magazine publisher over articles claiming that she lied about her age and upbringing in Australia.
The Victoria state Supreme Court jury, composed of six women, ruled against Bauer Media -- who denied the articles were defamatory -- after deliberating for two days. In court, the Pitch Perfect star claimed that articles published by Bauer Media in 2015 portrayed her as a serial liar, and that it cost her jobs. Wilson spoke out about her big win on Instagram.
"Just crushed my defamation case in Australia x thank you to all my family, friends and supporters!" she wrote alongside a picture of herself with her legal team. "I had to take a stand. I had to stand up to a bully, a media organization Bauer Media Group who maliciously took me down in May 2015 with a series of grubby and completely false articles. Far too often »

I fondly recall the purity of Lego, refusing to license media properties, preferring to keep their toys pristine and unique. Eventually, the opportunity for expanding their line was too tempting and they introduce first one, then another, and now a flood of media properties to their toys allowing you build everything from the Batcave to the Black Pearl. It was only a matter of time before they migrated from the playroom to the computer screen in a series of games that morphed into direct-to-dvd features. And now we have a whole subset of children’s films featuring the Lego version of popular heroes and villains.
One reason this explosion has been sustained is that the producers and writers have been freed to go wild, tongues firmly in cheeks, offering kinetic mayhem for the younger viewers and tons of pop culture references for the parents forced to endure repeated viewings. No »

Kovert Creative is getting into sports media.
The communications firm has taken a material equity stake in Howler Media, a multimedia company that covers global soccer from an American perspective. Led by founder and editor George Quraishi, Howler publishes a quarterly magazine as well as podcasts, newsletters, custom content, and an editorial and e-commerce website. Kovert Creative will work with Howler to expand the media company’s offerings.
“George has built Howler into an incredible, widely-trusted resource for the soccer community,” said Joseph Assad, co-ceo of Kovert Creative. “He’s also not afraid to be bold and tell it like it is; whether celebrating the best moments in soccer’s history, investigating scandals, or uncovering lesser-known, interesting stories about the sport, Howler has a point of view unlike any other publication out there. We see enormous growth potential in soccer and are excited to bring our depth and breadth of expertise in branding, content »

Jimmy Kimmel is celebrating the start of this year's NBA Finals with an all-new NBA edition of his hit segment "Mean Tweets."
Some of basketball's hottest stars and most legendary figures came together on Thursday's Jimmy Kimmel Live! to read the horrible, insulting things random trolls on the internet decided to write about them.
Some of the tweets mocked the athletes' looks -- like when one user commented on James Harden's massive beard, saying that he "always looks like he's just about to lead the Israelites through the Red Sea."
Other comments were just inexplicably mean for seemingly no reason. Former Wizards and Clippers forward Caron Butler read one tweet that claimed, "If you look up the word douche in the dictionary you'll see a picture of Hitler, but in that picture he's holding up a photo of [link »

Most network stars with lengthy TV seasons are usually only able to fit one movie into their hiatus schedule, but Chopra will be juggling two, in addition to continuing doing press for “Baywatch.”

Having finished up their shifts on Comedy Central’s Workaholics, Adam Devine, Anders Holm, and Blake Anderson—plus their behind-the-scenes comrade, Kyle Newacheck—are moving on to bigger, more violent things. Last year, we reported that the quartet were teaming up with Seth Rogen for their first film, Game Over, Man!. Now, Netflix has released the first teaser trailer for the film, revealing that it’ll be dealing in the same mixture of slacker comedy and pot, with just a little bit of gunfire thrown in to spice things up
The film centers on three would-be video game creators, whose dream project gets ruined when their financial benefactor is kidnapped by terrorists. (Cue violent, bumbling rampages galore) The film was just recently picked up by Netflix, which announced that it’ll arrive on the digital airwaves next year, on 4/20, because of course it will.

The Comedy Central series Workaholics came to an end earlier this year after a seven-season run, but the comedy’s stars aren’t going away any time soon.

"That is my bad! And now we know..." Netflix has unveiled the teaser trailer for an action comedy titled Game Over, Man!, the first feature film made by the "Workaholics" group. The film stars all three guys from "Workaholics" - Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Blake Anderson - and is directed by one of the creators of the show as well. These three actors have already landed other major roles in all kinds of movies, but this time they're finally coming together to tell a story of three stoner gamer friends about to sign a big financing deal when their investor is kidnapped by terrorists. This teaser doesn't contain any real footage, mostly because it's in the middle of filming, but also because it's still a year away from release. Quite a big tease from Netflix for a film so far away from release, but they must be excited about it. »

While it was never must-see TV for me, I always enjoyed when I'd sit down and watch an episode of Workaholics. True, it was never wholly original; however, I think the easy repertoire and chemistry between the three leads - Adam DeVine, Anders Holm and Blake Anderson - more than made up for that. So it's understandable that they'd try to parlay that relationship into feature... Read More »

The rainy weather on Sunday night didn’t stop the fun for the stars of the MTV Movie & TV Awards, held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
Hosted by Workaholics comedian Adam DeVine, this year marked big changes to the network’s iconic show. For the first time ever, television was recognized alongside films, and categories were altered to become gender-neutral (for example, actors and actresses competed against each other for both movie and TV show categories).
On the red carpet before the ceremony, known for its fun and unconventional quirks, the stars were quick to applaud MTV for making »
