Bruce Willis drops Woody Allen's film for the sake of Broadway

26 August 2015 4:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Bruce Willis has dropped out of Woody Allen's next movie due to a schedule clash with his Broadway debut.

Willis will be starring as writer Paul Sheldon in the stage adaptation of Stephen King's Misery.

The actor had apparently forgotten to check his schedule before shooting on the untitled film began, and Allen will now recast the role to keep production on his movie running to time.

He will wave goodbye to would-be co-stars Blake Lively, Parker Posey, Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg and Corey Stoll, according to Deadline.

Misery opens at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York City on October 22 for previews, and is booking until February 2016.

Laurie Metcalf, a triple Emmy Award winner for Roseanne, stars opposite Willis in the thriller »

Television that Home Video Forgot: Twins (2005)

22 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »


Showcase Inventory

Created by David Kohan, Max Mutchnick

Produced by KoMut Entertainment, Warner Bros Entertainment

Aired on The WB for 1 season (18 episodes) from September 16, 2005 – March 3, 2006


Sara Gilbert as Mitchee Arnold

Molly Stanton as Farrah Arnold

Melanie Griffith as Lee Arnold

Mark Linn-Baker as Alan Arnold

Show Premise

Highly successful lingerie company owners and married couple Alan and Lee Arnold decide to retire from their CEO position and name their non identical twin daughters as their successors. The two sisters, Mitchee and Farrah, couldn’t be more different from one another if they tried. Oddly, the two take after their parents almost exactly, with Mitchee taking after her father, who is brainy, uptight, and reserved, while Farrah takes after Lee, an alluring, uninhibited, and seemingly vapid blonde.  It would seem that for the parents, the notion of “opposite attracts” is what brought them together, but for the two sisters, »

The Venue, Guests, Groom & Ring -- See How Jen's Weddings Stack Up!

6 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux finally tied the knot, after a three-year long engagement marked with never-ending tabloid gossip about splits, babies and everything in between. While it's Justin's first marriage, this is the second time down the aisle for the former "Friends" star, who was famously married to Brad Pitt from 2000-2005. How does this celebration stack up against her first trip to the wedding rodeo? Let's investigate! The Venue When Jen and Brad said "I Do," they rented out a five-acre property in Malibu owned by "Cosby Show" and "Roseanne" producer Marcy Carsey (above). The grounds were set up with tents, lanterns, tables covered in flowers from La Premiere of Beverly Hills and even a fountain made especially for the occasion. They had a string quartet, a jazz band and a 12-year-old "Sinatra-style singer" perform, before a 13-minute firework display set to songs from Radiohead and Garbage. The »

'Last Comic Standing' Season 9 Premiere Recap: Meeting The Comedians

22 July 2015 3:20 PM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Well, friends... here we are. Another season of Last Comic Standing, with a brand new host, (Anthony Jeselnik), a brand new judge, (Norm Macdonald), and a brand new Roseanne (she's blonde now!) I saw Jb Smoove on a commercial for Rent.com recently, so hopefully he left by choice and not forced out by a heartless NBC executive. We're thinking about you, Jb.

As per usual, the winner of the show will be winning $250,000, a development deal, and the amazing title of Last Comic Standing. Tonight is the first of four Invitational shows, which means that jokes will be flying quickly.

Anthony takes the stage and introduces Keenen Ivory Wayans, Roseanne, and Norm. Immediately after, we're introduced to Ryan Conner. He's one of eleven brothers (what?) and the amount of people in the house is illustrated further with a giant party sub. They have to fight for food in the Conner household, »

The Middle: family comedy at its best (and 5 great episodes)

22 July 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A warm but never schmaltzy, perfectly formed family sitcom with no weak links in its cast, here's why you should watch The Middle...

Family sitcoms aren’t exactly thin on the ground, so finding a new spin on the format is always going to take some work. Originally intended as a vehicle for Ricki Lake, The Middle is a case in point. After several years in development, it finally aired in autumn 2009 with a new lead: Patricia Heaton, one of the stars of hugely popular show Everybody Loves Raymond. Writers Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline had previously been responsible for Roseanne, so the track records of all involved boded well for the series’ prospects. Six seasons later – with a seventh confirmed in May – expectations have well and truly been proved correct.

The Middle is a warm, beautifully performed and acutely observed portrait of a family struggling to cope with the »

Ranking Joss Whedon’s Projects – From Worst To Best

19 July 2015 2:09 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Jordan Strauss/AP

For the past twenty years, Joss Whedon has been at the forefront of the science fiction/fantasy movement on modern television. His shows have been almost universally beloved, despite the fact that they didn’t always last particularly long on the air. 

Without Joss Whedon’s unique sense of humor and innovative storytelling technique, a lot of the genre television shows that everyone knows and loves today simply would not exist. More recently, he has proven his skills on the big screen, serving at the helm of one of the most financially successful blockbusters of all time, The Avengers, which suddenly made him viable as a film director. 

And while everybody can appreciate his considerable creative abilities, the plain and simple truth is that some of his projects are better than others. Like, a lot better. Here are his major projects ranked, beginning with the less impressive »

Is the Network TV Sitcom Dying? Ask Jim Gaffigan

17 July 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Wondering why some networks have all but given up on creating new sitcoms? Maybe Jim Gaffigan knows the answer.

The stand-up comic, whose sitcom "The Jim Gaffigan Show" debuted on TV Land this week, has been promoting the show with interviews (including here, here, and here) where he explains why he took his new series to basic cable.

According to Gaffigan, each broadcast network tried to shoehorn his autobiographical series into its preferred sitcom format, with less of an eye on what would make the show unique or good and more on what would make it test well with audiences and run long enough to be sold into syndication. That's where the real money is for a TV production company -- we're talking hundreds of millions of dollars for a successful series with at least 100 episodes in its library -- but to get there, the networks apparently believe that risk-avoidance »

TV’s Acceptance of Gay Storylines Has Been a Long Time Coming

29 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There’s no question that television has been vital in altering perceptions on gay rights, perhaps more than with any other social issue. Yet while TV’s advancement might not seem that way in hindsight — perhaps especially to the movement’s opponents — its role as a progressive force has hardly been a steady forward march. Instead, its history has been more accurately characterized by advance and retreat. The theory that TV pursued some orchestrated agenda is

belied by the jagged line that has been followed from “That Certain Summer” — a breakthrough 1972 movie about a teenager learning that his father is gay — to the panoply of characters currently featured in programs, which prompted GLAAD to state last fall that television is “playing a key role in promoting cultural understanding of Lgbt lives around the world.”

It is also almost impossible to separate the impact of popular TV personalities coming out, such as Ellen DeGeneres, »

Laurie Metcalf to Play Annie Wilkes in Broadway Version of Stephen King’s Misery

23 June 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

When it was announced in March that Stephen King's classic horror novel Misery was getting the Broadway treatment, Elizabeth Marvel was intended to play the juicy role of number-one fan and number-one torturous motivator Annie Wilkes on stage. Due to House of Cards commitments, however, Marvel has left the project and Laurie Metcalf has joined it in her place.

Variety reports that Laurie Metcalf will play Annie Wilkes in the Misery Broadway play. Widely known for her stellar turn as Jackie Harris on Roseanne in addition to a plethora of other TV and film credits, Metcalf is perhaps best known to horror fans for her intense, unflinching portrayal as Mrs. Loomis in Scream 2.

As Wilkes, Metcalf will inflict pain on author Paul Sheldon, played by Bruce Willis in his Broadway debut. Metcalf is no stranger to the stage, having performed both off Broadway in Domesticated and on Broadway in The Other Place. »

The former Rilo Kiley musician, now 39, isn't embarrassed by her younger years onscreen—in fact, her newly released "She's Not Me" music video playfully pays homage to her child star past! For the creation of the quirky clip, Jenny enlisted the help of several of her famous friends, including Fred Armisen, Zosia Mamet, Vanessa Bayer, Feist and Leo Fitzpatrick. Together the pals parody some of Jenny's earlier work, including her TV roles on Golden Girls, Roseanne and Mr. Belvedere as well as her film appearances in Troop Beverly Hills, The Wizard and »

Watch Jamie Foxx Explain Why His National Anthem Sounded 'Off'

6 May 2015 3:42 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

As one clever fan put it after the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao battle: "The real fight was between Jamie Foxx and the national anthem."

Foxx, who won an Oscar as legendary singer Ray Charles in "Ray," sang the National Anthem at the so-called fight of the century on Saturday. But did he really sing it? Fans gave him a serious beating on Twitter after the event, and Foxx addressed the criticism Tuesday on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

"I sung the National Anthem, now some people were a little upset about how it went down," Foxx said. "But here's the thing. First of all, anytime a black person sings the National Anthem, you know we gotta, 'Ohhhhhh sayyyy can you-oooooo-ooooooo.'" The audience cut him off with their cheers. "But what did happen in the ring, my ears came out. My inner ears." Ellen asked him to explain his earpiece reference. »

George Clooney is turning 54 on Wednesday, and though he's a megastar now, I'm not sure he could predict his success in his early days guest-starring on The Facts of Life and Roseanne. To celebrate the Oscar winner's birthday, we rounded up pics of him throughout his career, from his appearance on the short-lived 1985 series Street Hawk all the way up to his most recent role as an art-loving soldier in The Monuments Men.

Roseanne Barr on the Drug War, Mind Control, and the New Documentary About Her Run for President

23 April 2015 10:21 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Did you know that Roseanne Barr came in sixth place in the 2012 presidential election? Despite only making the ballot in three states, the former Roseanne star nabbed 65,000 votes in the general election, and filmmaker Eric Weinrib was along to cover it all. Now Weinrib's turned his footage into a new documentary, Roseanne for President, which follows Barr's campaign through her early efforts to secure the Green Party nomination — she lost to mild-mannered doctor Jill Stein, who seems politely baffled by Roseanne's presence in the race — to her rapturous reception in the Peace and Freedom Party, while also running through Barr's groundbreaking entertainment career. The day after the documentary's premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, we spoke to Roseanne over the phone about her run, the state of American politics, and why she doesn't want people to protest.One of the things I was thinking about while watching »

Tribeca: Roseanne Barr On Why She Considers Herself 'President for Life'

As tragic as that news may be, hopefully it helps draw attention to the primary reason she was at the festival: her inspiring, gusty run for President in 2012, as documented in Eric Weinrib's intimate and moving "Roseanne for President!," which world premiered at the festival over the weekend. "I wanted to run for President since I was a little girl," Roseanne explained to Indiewire just prior to the film's first screening. "The first time I heard it was possible I really wanted to do it.

Roseanne Barr Opens Up About Going Blind: "My Vision Is Closing In Now"

21 April 2015 6:42 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

In a revealing new interview with The Daily Beast, Roseanne Barr spoke openly about her deteriorating eyesight, saying she's expecting to go blind as a result of macular degeneration and glaucoma, a medical condition that ultimately takes your sight. "I just try and enjoy vision as much as possible, you know? Living it up," she said. "My dad had it too." While the doctors have been unable to give her an exact timeline as to when her sight will go, the comic admitted that she's already preparing herself for the absence of one of her greatest pleasures: reading. "That one's harsh, 'cause I read a lot," she said, adding that she briefly considered hiring someone to read to her. "But I like words, and I like looking. You do what you have to do." Roseanne also discussed her love for marijuana and her desire for it to be legalized. She »

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Roseanne for President!’

18 April 2015 3:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Commentators who wondered if Roseanne Barr’s 2012 presidential candidacy was a joke may still have their doubts after “Roseanne for President!” This authorized portrait doesn’t do much to suggest that the groundbreaking comedienne was a tireless contender for the Oval Office, although Barr does come across as a likable underdog who’s sincere in her desire to challenge big money and political entrenchment. A chronicle with some distance — perhaps one without Barr as executive producer — might have amounted to a deep-dish examination of what it takes to launch a third-party presidential candidacy.

As is, this puff piece of a documentary, directed by Michael Moore collaborator Eric Weinrib, is half campaign diary and half career appreciation — an irreverent, personal look behind the curtain a la “Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work.” It will likely stoke curiosity among those who followed (or weren’t aware of) Barr’s candidacy, but its »
