Applegate’s Boise-bred Kelly Summers possesses an appealing, old-fashioned vibe which Dean finds very refreshing. She doesn’t even own a TV, calling herself “more of a book girl.”
The gig reunites Applegate with Lowe, her co-star in the 2003 flight attendant comedy View From the Top. »
Christina Applegate’s been working in entertainment for a long time. The 43 year-old actress rose to prominence with her performance as Kelly Bundy in 80s/90s sitcom Married with Children, and in recent years has carved out a niche as the romantic foil to a selection of cinema’s goofiest leading men. She’s largely stayed within the comedy genre, rarely sidling out into other fare.
This week she’s in Vacation alongside Ed Helms, the reboot of National Lampoon’s classic franchise. She’s again playing the put-upon voice of reason, spending the majority of the movie trying to imbue Helms’ manic father figure with a sense of rationale and mature perspective. Of course she mostly fails, leading to a bevy of ridiculous, often crude slapstick set-pieces.
Comedy’s an uneven genre at the best of times (mostly because it’s hard to do well) and consigning »

With both Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo) and Angus McClane (Toy Story of Terror) at the helm, Pixar will again be venturing under the sea next year for Finding Dory, which sees Helen DeGeneres return as everyone’s favourite, forgetful Pacific Regal Blue Tang as she sets out on a journey to find out where she came from.

Near the tail end of July, during the red carpet premiere of Christina Applegate's Vacation, her and former Married with Children co-star David Faustino both made it clear that every Bundy is coming back for the Married...With Children Spinoff. Now, Katey Sagal, who played mom Peggy Bundy, has chimed in, and confirms that he's ready to put the wig back on, and Ed O'Neill is game to put his hand back down his pants as Al Bundy for this new TV series.
Katey Sagal has had a pretty strong career following her 11 years on the air as Peg Bundy in what is known as Fox's first sitcom. She just finished playing her iconic role of Gemma in Sons of Anarchy, which came to a close last year. She is now rejoining her husband Kurt Sutter, who created that show, for his new series The Bastard Executioner. She spoke »
A Bundy family reunion may be more possible than ever. David Faustino, who played youngest son Bud Bundy, has long spoken about his desire to do a spinoff/sequel series based on “Married With Children,” though Sony TV, who owns the rights to the intellectual property, have been more measured in their discussions about the possibility. That may change now that the entire Bundy family seems game to return – nearly 20 years later and all of them more bankable than ever.

Last year, word broke that Sony execs were working on a spinoff of sitcom "Married... With Children" set to revolve around Bud Bundy. Now, the actor behind the character has confirmed that a new show is indeed in the works -- and all his former castmates are set to cameo, too.
While attending the premiere of "Vacation" in support of his former co-star Christina Applegate, David Faustino confirmed the spinoff news in an interview with E!, revealing that he was currently working on getting the show off the ground.
"Sony has it. They're excited about it," Faustino told the network. "They're working out some legal issues that we hope they work out."
We assume those legal issues pertain to the rights to the Fox series, though considering how popular the reboot/revival/spinoff trend is these days, this particular project probably doesn't have anything to worry about. And something else Faustino told E! »

It's hard to imagine anyone playing Elle Woods other than Reese Witherspoon. The Legally Blonde role is one of the performances that put the eventual Oscar winner on the map, after all. Apparently, Christina Applegate shied away from the opportunity to play the role, and though it sounds like she has mixed feelings about passing on the part, she also had a specific reason. If you're familiar with her Married... With Children character, you may be able to guess why... Christina Applegate spoke on the subject with ETOnline, and from what the Vacation star says, she was afraid of repeating herself after Married... With Children. The script came along my way and it was right after I had just finished, Married [With Children], and it was a blonde who in that first script is dimwitted but ends up going to Yale, or Harvard, I don.t remember. But I was »
Back in September, we reported that Sony Pictures Television is developing a spinoff of the beloved 1990s sitcom Married with Children, which would star David Faustino as Bud Bundy, who is grown up with a family of his own. We haven't heard anything regarding the spinoff since then, but, E! Online caught up with original Married With Children stars David Faustino and Christina Applegate, who confirmed that the Married...With Children Spinoff is in the works. Here's what David Faustino had to say.
"Sony has it. They're excited about it. They're working out some legal issues that we hope they work out. The whole cast, including Christina, is down to do little bits in it. The idea would be a pilot for a spinoff. That's all I can say right now. It involves me and few other people."
Christina Applegate came very close to playing one famous Gemini vegetarian. The Vacation star, 43, revealed in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight that she had the chance to play Elle Woods in Legally Blonde but turned the role down. The opportunity came along soon after Applegate had wrapped her turn on Married... With Children in the late '90s. The Mars Attacks! actress famously played Kelly on the sitcom, the ditzy daughter of the Bundy family, and was carefully plotting her next move. "The script came along my [...] »
The Bundys are baaack! I can exclusively reveal that a Married With Children reunion is in the works. David Faustino, who played Bud on the sitcom, says he's developing a "spin-off" of the series. "Sony has it. They're excited about it," Faustino told me last night at the premiere of his former co-star Christina Applegate's new comedy Vacation (in theaters tomorrow, July 29). "They're working out some legal issues that we hope they work out." The best part? "The whole cast, including Christina, is down to do little bits in it," Faustino said, adding, "The idea would be a pilot for a spinoff. That's all I can say right now. It »

The longtime pals embraced on the red carpet, with Faustino even giving the actress a quick smooch on the cheek. Applegate also took some solo shots, while Faustino posed with his pregnant girlfriend, Lindsay Bronson. The Samantha [...] »
TV Land executives set out more than a year ago to undertake a major makeover of the cabler’s original comedy series lineup. As they dug into it, they realized that the mandate had to be much bigger than changing the tone and format of new shows.
The mission became shifting the channel’s focus from appealing to baby boomers to understanding how the Generation X demo has changed during the past decade. The first fruits of that effort have rolled out this year with the launch of single-camera comedy “Younger,” from producer Darren Star, and two shows that premiere tonight: “The Jim Gaffigan Show” and “Impastor.”
“Generation X is now at the phase of life where they have matured, they are responsible parents, but inside they still feel like rebellious teenagers,” said Kim Rosenblum, TV Land’s exec VP of marketing and creative. “That represents a huge opportunity for »

When I left Tampa, it was the crack of dawn. I was in the passenger's seat of the Chevette that Scott Swan owned, and we were on our way to California to be rich and famous. I was 20 years old. I thought I had all the answers. I had a screenplay called "The President Must Die!" with me that I was sure was going to be produced by the following summer with an all-star cast. We had all of them picked. Harrison Ford, Robert DeNiro, Robin Williams. Scott and I had spent the entire spring writing it, and we were done. Absolutely, completely, positively done. It was perfect. It was going to be a huge hit. This was the logical next step. This wasn't our first script, either. We had written a script together called "Moondance" during my first year of college, and a script called "A Weekend Away" during my second year of college. »
