Following the first trailer released back in June, Open Road Films, via Yahoo! Movies, has debuted the second trailer for their upcoming road adventure Rock the Kasbah. Bill Murray stars as rock manager Richie Lanz, who finds the best voice he's ever heard in the most unexpected of places: Afghanistan. This dramatic comedy is inspired by stranger-than-fiction, real-life events and directed by Oscar winner Barry Levinson.
Richie Lanz (Bill Murray), dumped and stranded in war-torn Kabul by his last remaining client (Zooey Deschanel), discovers Salima Khan (Leem Lubany), a Pashtun teenager with a beautiful voice and the courageous dream of becoming the first woman to compete on national television in Afghanistan's version of American Idol. Richie partners with a savvy hooker (Kate Hudson), a pair of hard-partying war profiteers (Danny McBride and Scott Caan) and a hair-trigger mercenary (Bruce Willis) and, braving dangerous cultural prejudices, manages his new protég »
In Barry Levinson's Rock the Kasbah, Bill Murray plays a cantankerous, on-the-outs record producer who insists he's still got it. (He doesn't.) It's sort of a play on his 1970s SNL character Jerry Aldini. Murray accidentally becomes a talent scout for Afghanistan's version of American Idol and goes on one of those wacky trips during which he experiences zany antics and eventually an epiphany. The movie also features Zooey Deschanel, Kate Hudson, Danny McBride, and Bruce Willis. No word yet if the shareef don't like it.Murray also appeared in Darlene Love's new video for "Forbidden Nights." The legendary wall-of-sound singer has a new album, Introducing Darlene Love, coming out in September. It features Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Webb, Linda Perry, and Steven Van Zandt. The video also features appearances by Springsteen, Costello, Van Zandt, Joan Jett, David Letterman, and Paul Shaffer. It's a pretty spectacular video. »

Reverend Al Sharpton, who has hosted an early-evening program on MSNBC for four years, is moving to a once-a-week perch at the NBCUniversal-owned cable-news network as it seeks to focus more intently on breaking-news coverage and less on partisan viewpoint and opinion.
The last edition of Sharpton’s weekday program, “PoliticsNation,” will air Friday, September 4, according to a memo sent Wednesday evening to MSNBC staffers by network president Phil Griffin. The program will now air on Sundays at 8 a.m., Griffin said.
MSNBC will air breaking-news coverage in Sharpton’s current 6 p.m. slot, Griffin said, and will unveil a new program in that time period at a later point. Sharpton’s new show will have its first Sunday airing on October 4.
“I want to congratulate Al and his team. For four years they have done a terrific job bringing his voice and a big spotlight to issues of justice, »

Written and exec-produced by Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow), Fox’s “modern reimagining” of the original film will, per the official logline, follow on-the-run rodeo-circuit rider Kyle (played by Sense8‘s Alfonso Herrera) and Gaby, “two star-crossed young lovers, as they pursue their dreams and passions through the sweat of line-dancing in honky-tonks, »
About 5 million Dish Network subscribers lost access to 129 local TV stations operated by Sinclair Broadcast Group across the U.S. late Tuesday, in what amounts to the largest single TV blackout in history.
Dish said the companies had reached an agreement on rates and all other terms for the carriage of the Sinclair local stations, but that Sinclair demanded the satcaster pull its signals anyway. Dish alleged Sinclair forced the blackout because it wants to gain leverage in carriage negotiations for a cable channel — which Dish didn’t identify — that Sinclair is aiming to buy.
“We have agreed to rates and all terms to carry Sinclair’s local stations,” Warren Schlichting, Dish’s senior VP of programming, said in a statement. “But Sinclair is blacking out 129 local stations in an effort to negotiate a carriage agreement for an unrelated cable channel that it hopes to acquire, but does not own today. »

About 10 minutes into Tuesday’s series premiere of TNT’s Public Morals, NYPD Lt. King tells a newly hired officer, “It’s our job to curb all kinds of vice. That includes prostitution, pornography, degeneracy and the blue laws. You got that, my man?”
And although the rookie cop assures the lieutenant that he does get it, he quickly learns — as do those of us at home — that the police department’s Public Morals Division doesn’t “curb” vice as much as it sweeps vice under the rug.

You may not have seen comedian Mike Birbiglia’s first film, Sleepwalk With Me, but chances are you’ll recognise him from guest roles in Trainwreck, The Fault In Our Stars or the most recent season of Orange Is The New Black. He has a new film in the works, Don't Think Twice, and Keegan-Michael Key, Gillian Jacobs, Kate Micucci, Tami Sagher and Chris Gethard are starring in it.In addition to writing the script and calling the shots, Birbiglia will co-star in the film, which details what happens when an improv comedy group loses the lease on its theatre base of operations at the same time that one of its number is chosen for the cast of a Saturday Night Live-style sketch comedy on TV, a huge break. The comedy drama explores the bitterness and back-stabbing that erupts between the close-knit unit of friends when one of them »

The Ghostbusters all-female backlash has been on full throttle ever since Sony announced the reboot's director and cast earlier this year. Fans simply hate this idea. But that isn't stopping it from charging forth, possibly breaking down barriers as shooting continues to hum along. In this day and age, it's kind of shocking to see some of the vitriol lobbed at the remake, which has Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon replacing the men who used to wear the uniform. The ugly truth is, there is no possible way director Paul Feig can make a movie that's worse than 1989's Ghostbusters 2, which killed off the franchise for 27 years.
Whether you accept it or not, nothing can stop this latest incarnation of the popular series from hitting theater screens next summer, save for the zombie apocalypse or some other supernatural occurrence that has the ability to decimate the human race. »
There’s been a lot of discussion this year about the gender imbalance in Hollywood – most recently stemming from comments by Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow – and now Melissa McCarthy has taken to Twitter to post a set photo from Paul Feig’s female-led Ghostbusters reboot, which pays tribute to all of the women involved not only in front of but also behind the camera…
Ghostbusters is set for release on July 15th, 2016 and will be directed by Paul Feig (Spy) with a cast that includes Kristin Wiig (Bridesmaids), Melissa McCarthy (Spy), Leslie Jones (Saturday Night Live), Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live), Chris Hemsworth (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Andy Garcia (Goodfellas), Michael K. Williams (Boardwalk Empire), Matt Walsh (Veep), Cecily Strong (Saturday Night Live) and Neil Casey (Saturday Night Live). Both Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd are also confirmed to cameo. »

The Good Wife doesn't return until Sunday, Oct. 4 (rude!), but we've got the first pictures from the season seven premiere! The episode, currently titled "Grunts," sees the introduction of series regular Cush Jumbo as the new attorney character Lucca Quinn and Margo Martindale as Ruth Eastman. No Jeffrey Dean Morgan—yet! Saturday Night Live veteran Jane Curtin guest stars as Judge Farley and we're already not-so-secretly hoping she becomes a recurring player. You can never have too much Jane Curtin. Meanwhile, Mo Rocca returns as journalist Ted Willoughby. Familiar recurring faces Chris Noth (Peter Florrick on the series), Jerry Adler (Howard Lyman) and Michael J. Fox (Louis Canning) are also set to »

Sarandon plays a recent widow and eternal optimist who moves from New Jersey to Los Angeles to be closer to her daughter, played by Byrne. Cecily Strong (“Saturday Night Live”), Jerrod Carmichael and Michael McKean also star.

A chipped tooth won’t derail NBC’s vaunted “Tonight Show,” but it has created plenty of chatter among people obsessed with the inner workings of late-night TV.
Since taking over “Tonight” in February 2014, Jimmy Fallon has proven himself to be dynamic, creative, hard-charging and largely impossible to defeat in the ratings. He has brought new energy to one of TV’s most durable formats by getting guests to play games, take part in skits and show off hidden talents. But he has also demonstrated a different quality: He’s prone to accidents.
Fallon late last week disclosed via Twitter and Instagram that he had inadvertently chipped a tooth trying to open a tube of medication for his finger. That finger was nearly lost in June when Fallon took a tumble at home and snagged the digit thanks to a ring getting caught on a piece of furniture, requiring emergency surgery. »

You might think you can do a decent Christopher Walken, but really, you can't touch the professionals. Here, from Kevin Spacey to Steve Coogan, are the very finest impersonators in the business (of other people in the business).
1. Kevin Spacey
To know Kevin Spacey is to know his impersonations. Willing to bust out a Brando at the drop of a hat, the former Old Vic head honcho was more than willing to obey James Lipton's commands during his appearance on Inside The Actors Studio.
Next month, executive producer Ryan Murphy will unveil Fox’s “Scream Queens,” the first of three series he’s currently working on — along with FX’s “American Horror Story: Hotel” and “American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson.”
The comedy/horror series — which includes a star-studded cast headlined by Jamie Lee Curtis and Emma Roberts — follows a group of sorority sisters plagued by a devil-suited killer who’s picking off a victim, week by week.
Here, he tells Variety about building the cast, unmasking the killer — and who’ll be back next season.
It really was. I made that clear to (Fox CEOs) Dana (Walden) and Gary (Newman)… When she came in to meet, in typical Jamie Lee Curtis fashion, she brought photography books. She’s the queen of the book. She’s always sending everybody books as presents. »

Last night, Adult Swim's longest-running series aired its final episode, just a few hours after the debut of a show inspired by cable's most popular drama. That's how it's been with television this year: Each "welcome" alternates with yet another "we'll be seeing ya" ride off into the sunset. We barely have time to process our feelings about the departure of an old friend before we have to meet the new neighbors.
So in this installment of Rolling Stone's weekly appreciation of TV's best and most-talked-about, we'll be saying some more hellos, »
