Renee Zellweger Has Been Cast as Judy Garland in the Film Judy

Remember when Renee Zellweger used to be one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood? She was going strong for a while there, then all of a sudden we stopped seeing her in movies. When she eventually resurfaced she didn't look like Renee Zellweger!

Well, the actress just landed a big movie role! She will play Judy Garland in a new movie called Judy, which will revolve around the legend’s final concerts in London. Here's a description that was released by Variety:

Opening in the English capital in the winter of 1968 as Garland arrives for a five-week run of sell-out concerts, the movie will also recount the icon’s battles with management, and relationships with musicians and fans.As the concerts get underway the star of stage and screen is 47 and exhausted, fragile, and wanting to be at home with her kids, casting into doubt whether the shows, at

Renee Zellweger to Play Judy Garland in New Biopic
Renee Zellweger has landed the role of a Hollywood icon. 

The 48-year-old actress will portray Judy Garland in the upcoming biopic Judy, Variety reports.

The movie will center around the Wizard of Oz star's final concerts in London that took place at the Talk of the Town nightclub in 1969 when she was 47 and was "exhausted, fragile, and wanting to be at home with her kids," according to the trade publication. Garland died that same year.

Judy's script was written by The Crown's Tom Edge and will be directed by Tony nominee Rupert Goold. Production will begin on the movie come February in London.

It's assumed that Zellweger will be singing for her role as Garland, which will be one of the first times she's performed since her 2002 portrayal of Roxy Hart in the musical movie Chicago.

Remember how Rory lost her mind a little during that rough patch a few years back? She fought with Lorelai, ditched Yale and moved into her grandparents’ pool house, only to spend her days organizing parties for the Daughters of the American Revolution?

Well, add in “one-night stand with a Wookiee,” and you’ve got a pretty accurate idea of the Rory Gilmore Freak-Out Level we’re at in the

It seems sacrilegious to say so, but the finest exchange in Gilmore Girls‘ triumphant revival isn’t a bit of supersonic, pop culture-reference-laden, upbeat banter between Lorelai and Rory — at least, not in the first episode, “Winter.”

Yeah, yeah — I know: That thought is as surprising as the existence of a kale salad on the menu at Luke’s. Don’t worry. There are plenty of smart, touching, funny, eminently

2016 American Music Awards: What You Didn’t See on TV

2016 American Music Awards: What You Didn’t See on TV
The 2016 American Music Awards had a lot of showstopping moments (hello, Nicki Minaj caressing herself during her performance of “Side to Side”), but not all of them made it to television. While viewers got an eye and earful of some of the best musical artists of 2016, there were behind-the-scenes moments when they weren’t playing or singing that really stole the show.

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Los Angeles’ ubiquitous sunshine didn’t come out to play for the 2016 American Music Awards. Though the long, winding red carpet was completely tented, it didn’t stop water from seeping onto the carpet and soaking it.

Why I Love … Cary Grant's pratfalls

Marrying slapstick with sophistication, Cary Grant was as good at physical screwball as Chaplin or Keaton, writes Xan Brooks

• More from Why I Love …

Cary Grant, the perma-tanned paragon of Hollywood glamour, was born Archibald Leach in the backstreets of Bristol. He fled home at the age of 15 to join the Bob Pender stage troupe, where he worked as an acrobat and a stilt walker, a juggler and a mime. This slapstick apprenticeship shaped the performer he became. I like Cary Grant in his polished middle years, chaperoning Grace Kelly around the Riviera or lighting Eva Marie Saint's cigarette on a Chicago-bound train. But I love him best when he's tripping on a rug or slipping on an olive. The prince is at his most charming when he's looking like a clown.

If this does not quite make Grant unique, it definitely makes him an oddity – particularly within an

What was my Aunt Martha trying to ask me?

After she had the heart attack out in Michigan on Thanksgiving 1988, I stood by her bedside in the recovery room and she tried so hard to tell me something, but it just didn't work. I loved her so much. Did she know how much? I never told her. There are always questions you wish you'd asked after it's too late to get an answer. Sometimes years can pass before you realize they're questions.

Everyone said I "took after her," and I did. My features are more rounded than anyone else on either side of my family. Martha R. Stumm was the youngest of six surviving children of a Dutch-Irish-German couple who raised their family on a farm outside Tayorville, Illinois. Years after after her father died and her mother opened a boarding house in Urbana, enough oil was found beneath the land to make it worth drilling.

The Season 3 premiere of the hit television series, Pretty Little Liars, airs on ABCFamily Tuesday, June 5 at 8/7c. The Season 2 finale left viewers on the edge of their seats after Mona revealed herself as "A," and tears ran from everyone's eyes as Emily watched a body, assumed to be Maya's, being carried off on a gurney. Everyone has waited months for this premiere, and here's to hoping it tops the finale (this will be a difficult task)!

According to the synopsis of 'It Happened That Night,' "A summer has passed since Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer found out about Mona being "A" and Maya's death.

Theater Review: The Paradox of End of the Rainbow

Theater Review: The Paradox of End of the Rainbow
Martyrs are dying all over Broadway this season: We have at least two bleeding Jesi on deck (at last count), and now comes the Passion of Judy Garland, incarnated in all her latter-day volatility by Olivier-winner Tracie Bennett. Peter Quilter’s End of the Rainbow is a strange hybrid: an utterly conventional stage entertainment (i.e., the worshipful, wet-to-the-touch bio-rama wedged tight with informative wiki-asides) crowned with an obliterating performance that verges on performance art. We pick up Judy’s story in the last year of her life, in 1968, at a five-week cabaret engagement at London’s Talk of the Town nightclub. The action swivels from her increasingly erratic stage performances to the squalor and hysteria of her hotel suite, which she shares with her soon-to-be-fifth (and final) husband, the grimly closeted hipster opportunist Mickey Deans (Tom Pelphrey); a piano; and a piano player, Anthony (Michael Cumpsty), the compassionate composite

Film: Movie Review: Bill Cunningham New York

It’s no insult to say that the fine documentary Bill Cunningham New York resembles one of those minor profiles found in The New Yorker’s “Talk Of The Town” section: a slight, glancing, yet subtly wrought slice of New York life. And it seems likely that the exceedingly modest Cunningham would want it that way. It reportedly took director Richard Press eight years to convince the reticent New York Times fashion photographer to crawl out of his shell—and even then, he just comes out for a peek. A New York institution, Cunningham not only embodies the city’s ...
