Blu-ray, DVD: The Lion King 1.5 and The Lion King 2

26 December 2011 9:30 AM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: March 6, 2012

Price: DVD $29.99, Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.99, standard-definition download $29.99, high-definition download $39.99

Studio: Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment

Disney’s two sequels to its timeless animated film The Lion King, The Lion King 1.5 (2004) and The Lion King 2 (1998), were released on Blu-ray and DVD on Oct. 4, 2011, but only in a mega-priced The Lion King Trilogy set, so it’s great to see them get their own separate releases.

Both of the G-rated animated sequels feature the voices of Matthew Broderick (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) as the young lion Simba, Nathan Lane (Stuart Little) as Timon and Ernie Sabella (TV’s House of Mouse) as Pumbaa.

In The Lion King 1 1/2, Timon and Pumbaa tell where they came from and explain what really happened during the big events of the franchise’s first movie.

In The Lion King 2, Timon and Pumbaa have a new cub in their life, Kiara, the strong-willed daughter of now-grownup Simba. »

'Young Adult' Star Patton Oswalt Talks Transforming For The Film & How His French Bulldog Helped Get Him The Job

14 December 2011 11:15 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Going into “Young Adult,” Jason Reitman’s new dark comedy, you kind of already have a sensation that Charlize Theron is going to dazzle you as the boozy, emotionally stunted author of a series of young adult novels who returns to her hometown in an effort to woo a former beau. What is more of a surprise is what an impact her costar Patton Oswalt has. You might remember Oswalt for his gut-busting stand-up, or as the voice of Remy the rat in “Ratatouille” or for standing eerily still during one of the openings during his semi-regular stint on “The King of Queens.” But nothing prepares you for the depth and nuance of his performance here. As Theron’s former classmate who was critically maimed in a hate crime, he shows an amazing amount of depth and their friendship, as cracked as it is, gives “Young Adult” its black little heart. »

Patton Oswalt Talks Young Adult And The Lasting Impact Of The Bad News Bears

8 December 2011 8:01 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

A few years ago in the indie drama Big Fan, Patton Oswalt showed off some dramatic chops that a lot of us never knew he had. The stand-up comedian had done plenty of acting in the past, including many seasons of The King of Queens and the unforgettable voice of Remy the Rat in Ratatouille, but Big Fan allowed Oswalt to go dramatic in a way he hadn't really before, playing a lonely and broken man with little to hope for in his life. Good as it was, not that many people saw Big Fan, which means that this weekend's release of Young Adult may be the first opportunity for a lot of people to see how well Oswalt can build a character who's not too far removed from subjects he'd bring up in his standup, but also a fully developed and eventually heartbreaking character on his own.

Lou Ferrigno turns 60; Wish him 'Happy Birthday' before he gets angry

9 November 2011 12:06 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Bodybuilder, actor and former "Incredible Hulk" Lou Ferrigno turned 60 on Wednesday (Nov. 9).

Ferrigno was a major personality in the 1970s bodybuilding craze, twice earning the title of Mr. Universe. But it was his work as Bruce Banner's angry, green alter-ego on the TV series "The Incredible Hulk" that made him a star. The show ran from 1977-82 and totaled 82 episodes.

Since then, Ferrigno has continued both acting and bodybuilding. He's guest starred in numerous series including "The King of Queens," "Reno 911!" and "Chuck." He was even on "Celebrity Apprentice." On the bodybuilding side, Ferrigno has his own line of fitness equipment and books and apparel.

Of course, we couldn't do this post without checking in on our favorite Twitter feed Drunk Hulk to see what he has to say.

"Lou Ferrigno Turn 60 Today! More Like 60 Turn Lou Ferrigno! Happy Birthday To Favorite Stunt Double!" he writes.

Well said. »

Blu-Ray Review: Kevin James Almost Saves Inconsistent ‘Zookeeper’

24 October 2011 10:30 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Zookeeper” is a weird, weird movie. It was heavily advertised as a family film about talking animals but it’s more of a Kevin James romantic comedy and even features some dark material about the treatment of animals. In other words, it’s wildly inconsistent and sometimes just strange. Any movie that can feature a Gorilla getting a brain freeze at TGIFridays next to a standard romantic comedy love triangle next to an abuse subplot straight out of “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” is a weird, weird movie. James and Rosario Dawson are so incredibly likable that they keep it watchable but the movie just never clicks because it never picked an audience and, therefore, satisfies none of them.

Blu-Ray Rating: 2.5/5.0

Kids will get bored every time the animals aren’t talking. Parents are likely to cringe every time they do. And both will marvel that one »

Leah Remini Signs Talent Deal With ABC

21 October 2011 10:03 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: After her year-long daytime stint on CBS’ The Talk, Leah Remini is returning to primetime with a talent development deal at ABC and ABC Studios. The pact, which calls for the network and the studio to develop a comedy project for Remini to star in and produce, stems from a meeting the actress recently had with ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee. Along with Holly Robinson Peete, Remini made a surprising exit from The Talk last month after CBS opted not to pick up their options, leading to an outpouring of support from fans, including a campaign to get the two back on the daytime talk show. (Robinson Peete also recently booked her first post-Talk gig, an arc on CBS’ Mike & Molly). Remini, best known for her starring role on the long-running CBS sitcom The King Of Queens, has been in demand for comedy series with a string of »

'Cougar Town' seeks advice from Nicole Sullivan

30 September 2011 5:59 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

A frequent former patient on "Scrubs" will turn doctor on "Cougar Town" this season.

Nicole Sullivan will guest-star in at least one episode (and possibly more) as a couples therapist working with Jules (Courteney Cox) and Grayson (Josh Hopkins), TVLine reports.

And why are Jules and Grayson in couples therapy? Well, it's not because they're on the verge of breaking up. It's more of a pre-emptive strike, the site says, as they try to sort out their polar-opposite views on having a child together.

As for when all this will happen, we still don't know. "Cougar Town" is slated to begin its third season either in the late fall or maybe in January 2012.

Sullivan guested on several episodes of "Scrubs" (created by "Cougar Town" co-creator Bill Lawrence) over the years. The former "Mad TV" regular co-starred on CBS' "$#*! My Dad Says" last season and played the title character on Lifetime's "Rita Rocks" before that. »

And They're Off movie images. Sean Astin stars in comedy.

21 September 2011 7:26 AM, PDT | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

Images from Rob Schiller's And They're Off, starring Sean Astin and Kevin Nealon Admitedly, I've never heard of this title before today's popping up of images from a source. Still, with Sean Astin on board, I think it's a worthwhile addition, especially since I'm keen on horseracing flicks in general. There are over 30 images from the film which also stars Mark Moses, Cheri Oteri, Peter Jacobson, Greg Cipes, Martin Mull, Alex Rocco and Mo Collins. Rob Schiller's an experienced TV director for the most part, with credits like Santa Barbara, Blue Skies, Two and a Half Men, The King of Queens, 'Til Death and $#*! My Dad Says »

Which TV Stars Make The Most Money?

10 August 2011 12:27 PM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Acting: it ain't a bad gig, if you can get it.

Stardom and creative expression fuel aspiring performers' willingness to starve, working catering jobs (as so gloriously chronicled by the late, great Starz comedy, "Party Down) and take on other assorted tasks, but the potential prosperity of tomorrow certainly plays into the voluntary suffering of the poverty of today. And while the standard dream is to be a big movie star, in this day in age, TV acting is just as, if not more, lucrative.

As the number of cable networks grow and shows continue to push boundaries, actors and actresses jump more and more between the big and small screens. Just this year alone, movie vets such as Ashton Kutcher, Christina Ricci, Christina Applegate and Zooey Deschanel will take the dive to TV series, wooed by leading roles and weekly exposure.

On the doorstep of the upcoming fall TV season, »

Cutest Dog Fight Ever (It’s Not What You Think)

28 July 2011 5:30 AM, PDT | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

Do you ever think you can understand what your dog is saying? It’s a far reach, but for a lot of dog owners, we like to apply a sort of humanistic quality to our pets in hope that we can communicate with them in a way that’s more intimate than humanly possible. It’s a pipe dream, for sure, but let us do what we want, okay, America? These two beautiful Huskies live in a house that is probably prettier than any dump we’ll ever see, so they’ve already got it made. But somebody who loves them filmed what is essentially a full-on argument about playtime, and with added subtitles, it’s like, how can you not put on a trenchoat and sunglasses and book it to your local dog run? Someone give these two a show. Actually, just replace every rerun of The King Of Queens with this video. »

Director Michael Weithorn Talks A Little Help

25 July 2011 7:18 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

A television writer nominated for five Emmy Awards, Michael J. Weithorn has had a successful career dating back to the early 1980s — mostly in sitcoms, from “Family Ties”, “The Wonder Years” and “True Colors” up through “Ned and Stacey” and “The King of Queens”. For his feature film debut as both a writer and director, however, Weithorn toned down the overt laughs, and instead took aim at something a bit more melancholic, and laced with a quieter humor. Set in suburban Long Island in the summer following the September 11 attacks, “A Little Help” centers on a dental hygienist and mother, Laura (Jenna Fischer), whose marriage has become tense »

Things We Learned From The Zookeeper Premiere

8 July 2011 7:00 AM, PDT | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

Kevin James‘s Oscar-winning new cinematic tour de force, Zookeeper, is coming out soon, and, without doing any research, we’re going to go out on a limb and say it’s a buffoonish comedy about talking animals? Right? That’s got to be it. What else would it be? The King Of Queens And Animals Ftw. Everything at the Zookeeper premiere at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood, California was weird, as evidenced by these photos. But we did learn a few lessons in the process.

Exclusive Cs Video: Kevin James' Zookeeper

6 July 2011 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Ever since he wrapped on his popular television show "The King of Queens," actor Kevin James has been building his reputation as a movie star, first with his appearance in Will Smith's Hitch , in the Adam Sandler comedies I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry and last year's Grown Ups , as well as in his own mega-hit family comedy Paul Blart: Mall Cop . His new comedy Zookeeper is more in the vein of the latter, a movie that has something for kids as well as their parents as James now plays zookeeper Griffin Keyes, who spends five years moping after his marriage proposal is shot down by his girlfriend Stephanie (Leslie Bibb). When she shows back up in his life, he tries to figure out how to win her back, something he does with the zoo animals who mysteriously are able »

Kevin James is having a very successful movie career, and is considered one of the funniest men in movies today. But long before acting in movies, James was a funny man on the small screen for nine seasons, as the star of the hit comedy series, The King of Queens. Although the show has been over for four years, James still has a lot of affection for the series that made him a star. (Click on the audio player to hear Kevin James) Kevinjames-onmissingtv

Eye On Emmy: Cougar Town Trio Dish on Kick-Ass Chemistry, Drinking on the Job, and Cox's Hurtful Friends Snub

5 June 2011 6:01 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Finding two actors with the magic of perfect chemistry is hard. And finding three? Near impossible. But in the underrated, unfortunately titled banter-fest that is Cougar Town, ABC has exactly that. The rapport among Courteney Cox, Christa Miller and Busy Philipps can’t be forced, faked or, yes, bottled. What makes their on-screen partnership work so well? The secret may lie in their easy off-screen camaraderie, evident even when the conversation is about career challenges and Emmy chances. It doesn’t really come from vino. We think. During this interview, they drank iced tea… (We’re pretty sure…)

‘A Little Help’ Trailer

24 May 2011 11:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

In 2009 The King of Queens and Ned and Stacey exec producer Michael J. Weithorn wrote and directed his first feature, called A Little Help. He scored in a couple ways with the cast, which features Jenna Fischer along with Kim Coates, Lesley Ann Warren, Aida Turturro and Chris O'Donnell. But the film turned out as a classically middle of the road indie drama  that played at a couple festivals (starting with the Seattle Ff in May 2010) and then sat around waiting for a distributor to throw it some love. Now Freestyle Releasing and Secret Handshake are finally getting the film into theaters this June, but a quick look at the new trailer will clue you in on what has taken so long. This might be one of the most difficult types of films to get right. This trailer isn't terrible, but there's also nothing in it to suggest the movie is very good. »

Trailer: Jenna Fischer Needs ‘A Little Help’

23 May 2011 7:37 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Although we all know her from The Office, Jenna Fischer and dipped her toe into the film world with supporting roles in such films as Blades of Glory, Walk Hard, and most recently, Hall Pass. Her next film, in wihch she has a lead role, actually did a festival run in 2010 and will now see a limited release. From The King of Queens executive producer and writer Michael J. Weithorn comes A Little Help. It looks like a perfectly harmless, if predicable, light comedy. I don’t trust any recommendation from Pete Hammond, but I may eventually check this out.

Fischer stars next to Chris O’Donnell, Rob Benedict, Daniel Yelsky, Kim Coates, Brooke Smith, Lesley Ann Warren, Ron Leibman , Zach Page, Arden Myrin, Aida Turturro, Michelle Hurst , Michael J. Weithorn, Dena Hysell, and Joe Gressis. Check out the trailer and poster below via Apple.
