'Bachelor' Creator Mike Fleiss Teases the Next 'Bachelor', Hints It Might Not Be Peter Kraus

17 August 2017 2:12 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Looks like Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss is throwing some shade at Bachelorette fan favorite Peter Kraus.

Fleiss took what appears to be a thinly veiled dig at 31-year-old Peter on Thursday, whom plenty of fans want to see as the next Bachelor. Peter was the runner-up on the latest season of The Bachelorette, after Rachel Lindsay sent him home because he wasn't ready to propose.

"Do we really want a Bachelor who isn't ready to settle down with a woman he loves?" Fleiss tweeted. "Hmmm. Not what #thebachelor is all about..."

Not surprisingly, Bachelor Nation weighed in with a few strong opinions.

Though one person who probably agrees with Fleiss is Rachel. Et spoke with the 32-year-old attorney and her new fiance, 37-year-old Bryan Abasolo, following the emotional After the Final Rose special earlier this month, during which Rachel »

Bit Part Movie Characters We Love: Ben Fong Torres in “Almost Famous”

15 August 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Bit-players in movies are the people that can actually make a huge difference if they’re not there, but when they are there they tend to be the people that the main actors are paid to overlook. In other words they’re the ones that fill in the spaces in the room and in the conversation so that the dialogue can run smoothly and the scene can play out the way it needs to. They’re the unsung backbone of the movie that makes it run by being as quick to the point as possible before blending into the background once again. Ben

David Lynch Almost Directed ‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High,’ Reveals Cameron Crowe

12 August 2017 9:32 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Fast Times at Ridgemont High” turns 35 tomorrow, a milestone Variety has marked by speaking to director Amy Heckerling and screenwriter Cameron Crowe. Among the revelations: the fact that David Lynch, who was also offered directing duties on “Return of the Jedi” at around the same time, was approached to helm the classic teen comedy. “I had a meeting with David Lynch,” says Crowe, apparently on the recommendation of Universal exec Thom Mount.

“He had a very wry smile on his face as I sat talking with him,” continues Crowe, who won an Oscar for writing “Almost Famous.” “He went and read it. We met again. He was very, very sweet about it, but slightly perplexed we thought of him. He said this was a really nice story but ‘it’s not really the »

Would Ben Higgins Consider Being the Bachelor Again? It's Possible

11 August 2017 4:55 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Since Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell split, fans have wondered whether he might consider being The Bachelor again - and it sounds like he isn't ruling it out. Now that The Bachelorette has wrapped, there's speculation about who might lead the next season of The Bachelor. If Higgins were to take on the role, it wouldn't be the first time the franchise had a repeat Bachelor (cough, Brad Womack, cough), but it sounds pretty unlikely. "I don't want to say I wouldn't, but I can't say I would," Higgins told Us Weekly, explaining that he wants to dedicate time to the projects he's passionate about right now. "I'd be sacrificing things that I don't want to neglect," he said. Meanwhile, Higgins also addressed the question with Ashley Iaconetti on their podcast, The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast.

‘Fast Times’ at 35: Cameron Crowe, Amy Heckerling on Courting David Lynch, Sean Penn’s Method Acting, Genital Equality

10 August 2017 2:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The seminal teen flick “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” is celebrating its 35th anniversary on Sunday.

Not only did the coming-of-age tale set in Southern California launch the careers of director Amy Heckerling and writer Cameron Crowe, the comedy catapulted Sean Penn, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Phoebe Cates, and Judge Reinhold into stardom.

And in 2005, “Fast Times,” which was based on Crowe’s 1981 book chronicling his adventures going undercover at a San Diego high school, was selected for preservation in the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

Ironically, “Fast Times” had to overcome many obstacles during production and almost failed to get released.

Among the early difficulties the production encountered was finding a director for the comedy, which also featured future best actor Oscar winners Forest Whitaker and Nicolas Cage — billed as Nicolas Coppola — as well as Eric Stoltz and Anthony Edwards.

Universal executive Thom Mount surprisingly recommended David Lynch, who »

In the days since Warner Bros. announced that it had officially halted production of Bachelor in Paradise due to an investigation into allegations of misconduct, a spotlight has been cast on the popular reality show — prompting new focus on the role producers play.

Rock Dog Review

13 June 2017 5:06 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

Blending the coming-of-age formula with a musical journey makes for a fitting collaboration. During those formative years, when we as teenagers attempt to discover exactly who we are and how we fit into this world, our own quest is often enriched, and illustrated by a soundtrack, as our change in mentality and outlook is matched by our musical choices, constantly discovering new sounds, bands and artists that change our own perception of the world we inhabit. Then there’s the social element, epitomised in Almost Famous – in how this art-form brings us together with other likeminded individuals – and this is what lays down the foundations for Ash Brannon’s animation Rock Dog to thrive off, steeped in relatable themes. Only difference is, our protagonist is a dog.
