Interview: Director Rob Reiner on Latest Film ‘And So it Goes’

23 July 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Rob Reiner has lived two distinct show business lives. He played a major role in one of the most famous television shows in history, “All in the Family,” and broke out afterward as a classic American film director, with hits such as “This is Spinal Tap” and “The Princess Bride.” His latest film is “And So it Goes.”

The film stars Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton, as an older couple discovering a connection that on the surface seems highly unlikely. This is Rob Reiner’s 15th feature film as director, after such classics as “The Sure Thing,” “Stand By Me,” “When Harry Met Sally…,” “Misery,” “A Few Good Men,” “The American President” and “Ghosts of Mississippi.” Michael Douglas last worked with Reiner when he portrayed the title character in “The American President.” Reiner himself performs a small supporting role in “And So it Goes.”

Big Screen to Small Screen: Top 10 Films About Television

13 July 2014 4:59 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There has always been an understated rivalry between the mediums of movies and television. Many years ago it was even thought as being somewhat of a drastic career letdown if actors/actresses from film decided to depart for the landscape of television. The truth is that for some performers that had stalled or uneventful momentum in motion pictures that the concept of “slumming it” in television actually saved their show business profession. Hence, the boob tube made them relevant whereas the big screen had unceremoniously passed them by.

However, there is also a mutual respect that cinema and television share that go hand in hand when shaping our appreciation for entertainment on both the big and small screen. When movies depict the aspects of the TV world giving a sociological, psychological or emotional perspective then it is not so uncool to be a proud couch potato after all, right? Let »

Casey Kasem: 10 Things You Didn’t Know About His Early Career

15 June 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Everybody knows that Casey Kasem was the voice of “American Top 40″ and countless cartoon characters for decades. But who could forget him on “Astrology for Young Lovers”? Or in “Scream Free!” Or as the host of “Shebang.”

In the 1960s and ’70s, Kasem, who died Sunday at age 82, logged roles in a string of B-grade independent features, from American International Prods. and others. He romped with wild bikinis, frisky teenagers, motorcycle clubs, “high on Jesus” types etc. He did a fair amount of on-camera TV work too, as a host and through gusts shots on “Baretta,” “Hawaii 5-0” and such. He was money on NBC’s “Dean Martin Celebrity Roast” specials, judging by the number of appearances he made.

But nothing plumped Kasem’s pocketbook like his commercial work. In 1973 his agent Charles Stern bragged that Kasem had voiced 600 commercials in four years. »

Those Were The Days (of TV theme songs)

25 May 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Like it or not, the television landscape has changed. Reality TV and its “stars” seem to be here to stay, which is bad news for nostalgia freaks like me, who’d rather watch repeats of old shows than spend half an hour with a real housewife, a top chef, or a Boo Boo of any kind. While the number of reality shows are on the increase, an integral part of TV viewing has quietly been disappearing; that simple melody that you waited to hear with anticipation once a week coming from your living room, aka a theme song.

If you’re under a certain age (like say, 25 or younger), you might not get my gripe. I can’t really blame you; most likely you’ve grown up with slim pickings as far as theme songs go, and by now watch everything online anyway, commercial and theme song free. But shocker: »

Selznick’s film version of Margaret Mitchell’s bestseller Gone with the Wind. Instead of Scarlett, eventually played by Vivien Leigh, Anderson was cast in the small role of Maybelle Merriwether — most of which reportedly ended up on the cutting-room floor. Cukor was later fired from the project; his replacement, Victor Fleming, »

The secret Emmy agony of Ed O'Neill ('Modern Family,' 'Married... With Children')

12 February 2014 6:46 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

  In "Married ... with Children," Ed O'Neill played one of TV's biggest losers and, as bad luck would have it, he continues today to reign as one of the biggest losers of TV's top award even though his current show, "Modern Family," has won the Emmy as Best Comedy Series four years in a row. What gives? Does Hollywood secretly hate O'Neill? He's never won an Emmy, while his current costars have been hailed generously: Ty Burrell (once), Eric Stonestreet (twice) and Julie Bowen (twice). "Married... With Children" was one of TV's longest-running shows never to snag a single Emmy. Between 1987 and 1997, it was nominated on seven occasions in the tech categories, but got slapped down every time. A few Emmyless programs ran longer (“Ozzie and Harriet,” “My Three Sons,” “Baywatch”), but today its lofty place in TV’s pantheon as one of the tube’s biggest losers is not »
