'The Wolverine' Director James Mangold Circles Joe Namath Biopic

28 May 2014 6:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Filmmaker James Mangold (The Wolverine) is currently in early talks to direct a biopic centering on the life of iconic NFL quarterback Joe Namath.

If the filmmaker signs on, he will reunite with his 3:10 to Yuma screenwriters Derek Haas and Michael Brandt, who are writing the script.

After playing college football at the University of Alabama, under legendary head coach Robert 'Bear' Bryant, Joe Namath spent a bulk of his NFL playing career with the New York Jets, leading his team to an improbable upset victory in Super Bowl III over the highly-favored Baltimore Colts. He helped celebrate that win by opening the New York City bar Bachelors III on the Upper East Side. The quarterback was well known for his partying and womanizing ways, which helped earn him the nickname Broadway Joe, along with his penchant for wearing fur coats on the sidelines, which was later banned.

ABC Fall Schedule: Shonda Rhimes Owns Thursdays, Black-ish Gets the Post-Modern Family Slot

13 May 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

ABC is going all in on Must-Shonda TV: The fourth-place network today unveiled a new fall schedule anchored by a Thursday night lineup comprised entirely of shows from creator Shonda Rhimes and her Shondaland production banner. Red-hot Scandal will take over the 9 p.m. Thursday timeslot and serve as a lead-in to How to Get Away with Murder, the new Rhimes legal thriller starring Viola Davis. That’ll push Grey’s Anatomy out of its long-time perch, to 8 p.m. Thursday. (This is not the first time in ABC’s illustrious history that the network has given over a night to a single creative entity: In March 1982, ABC plopped Aaron Spelling’s T.J. Hooker on Saturdays at 8, pairing it with the prolific producer’s The Love Boat and Fantasy Island for a totally Spelling lineup that would run for two more years.) Meanwhile, other big ABC moves include the long »

“I’ve always wanted to do a home improvement show,” says Adam Carolla, while driving to a racetrack in Northern California. He got his wish with Spike TV’s Catch a Contractor, where Carolla, a licensed contractor named Skip Bedell and his detective wife lure deadbeat contractors to a house and confront them; the accused can either finish the job or endure a legal battle. “It sounded wildly uncomfortable to me because a lot of these guys are volatile and scary – and I just thought it'd definitely be the kind »

Dave Madden of ‘The Partridge Family’ Dies at 82

16 January 2014 2:34 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Dave Madden, who played band manager Reuben Kincaid on “The Partridge Family,” died Thursday in Jacksonville, Florida of congestive heart and kidney failure. He was 82.

Madden’s character was typically aggravated by the mischievous Partridge kids and tangled frequently with Danny Bonaduce’s character.

While the series starred Shirley Jones, with her real-life son David Cassidy as the resident heartthrob, it was Madden and the freckle-faced Bonaduce who became the reigning comic duo.

Jones said Madden “made the show, I felt.”

“His relationship with Danny Bonaduce is what made the show work: this strange, mad little boy and the grown man who was even worse as a father figure,” she said Thursday. “It was hysterical!”

Before “The Partridge Family,” Madden was part of the ensemble on the “Laugh-In” comedy series, sipping and sometimes spitting milk along with joining in the show’s zany sketches and crazy jokes. He later had »

Actress Carmen Zapata Dies at 86

6 January 2014 6:45 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Actress and producer Carmen Zapata, one of the most respected Hispanic-Americans in the performing arts, died Sunday night in Van Nuys, Calif., from complications of heart failure. She was 86.

Zapata was perhaps best known to wider audiences for her roles in the film “Sister Act” and its sequel, both starring Whoopi Goldberg, and for her recurring role as Mrs. Castillo on the soap “Santa Barbara,” but she was also a champion of bilingualism, co-founding in 1973 the Bilingual Foundation of the Arts, a theater company dedicated to bringing the Hispanic experience and culture to the Southern California community through bilingual stage productions. And on PBS, she played the town mayor in “Villa Alegre,” a bilingual series that ran for nine seasons beginning in 1973.

The actress started on the stage, making her 1946 Broadway debut in the chorus of “Oklahoma.” She also appeared on the Rialto in 1956 in drama “The Innkeepers,” starring Geraldine Page, »
