As MPAA Celebrates Earth Day with 'Eco-Conscious Practices,' How Green Has Hollywood Gone?

23 April 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"Greenzo" (David Schwimmer), a narcissistic, power-mad actor's interpretation of an environmental mascot, turns up in the second season of "30 Rock" and quickly ruins the carefully calibrated messaging of NBC's latest "green" initiative. Hired by Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) at the behest of Ge Chairman Don Geiss (Rip Torn), Greenzo, "America's first non-judgmental, business-friendly environmental advocate," proves popular with audiences and executives alike—until, that his, he bites the hand that feeds him live on "The Today Show" with Meredith Viera. As broadcast satires go, the episode pulls few punches, sending up both self-aggrandizing liberals and corporate honchos looking to make a buck from "this environmentalism trend." But more than seven years later, would the joke still land?   As the MPAA announced yesterday in honor of Earth Day, in 2014 member studios diverted more than 19,000 tons of solid waste from »

'Harry Potter 8' Happening? Jk Rowling Won't Say Never!

10 April 2015 6:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Harry Potter fans are excited enough about the franchise continuing on in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, they'd much rather be getting a new adventure featuring Harry Potter and his friends Ron and Hermione. That isn't happening, though, and probably won't. Ever. At least according to author J.K. Rowling.

She has stated in the past that she has no plans to revisit the main characters for another full-length book. But people keep asking the question. The Today Show once again went at it. And J.K. Rowling quite firmly says 'no'. But then, she doesn't want it to be that black and white. While she has no plans to continue the series, ever, she wants to leave the door open just a crack. Asked if we'd be getting Harry Potter 8 sometime in the future, she says:

"No. But even as I answer that, I know that someone's cutting »
