A Year with Kate: The Man Upstairs (1992)

3 December 2014 12:33 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Episode 49 of 52: In which Katharine Hepburn, octogenarian and Academy Award-winning legend, wrestles a convict and wins.

“You’re too old not to be interesting,” Ryan O’Neal tells Katharine Hepburn midway through The Man Upstairs. As the 1980s rolled into the 1990s, that certainly turned out to be the case for Kate. The formerly private star was now the subject of documentaries, interviews, and the 1990 Kennedy Centers Honors.

Ted 2 Moves Forward As Morgan Freeman Joins The Cast

10 September 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With shooting already underway on the sequel, Freeman will be heading out to Boston to join production. Returning cast members include Mark Wahlberg as Ted’s best buddy John; Mila Kunis in a brief cameo as John’s girlfriend, and Amanda Barth as Ted’s checkout girlfriend, Tami-Lynn.

Freeman won’t be the only new kid in class though, as Amanda Seyfried has taken the baton from Kunis and will take over as the female lead. According to Variety, Freeman will “play an iconic civil rights lawyer who comes into the picture when Ted needs to resolve some legal issues.” We can already sense a cuss-ridden verbal sparring between the pair. »
