To entice Goldie Hawn back to the big screen -- for her first film in 15 years -- it took a special script (Snatched), a special co-star (Amy Schumer) and a special director: Jonathan Levine, whose past work includes the cancer dramedy, 50/50, and the stoner Christmas carol, The Night Before. In his latest, Levine is tackling mother-daughter bonding (and snatchin') and Et phoned the director to discuss the road to bringing Hawn out of semi-retirement, doing improv with Schumer and the movie he would like to direct with Jennifer Lawrence.

You may not recognize her walking down the street, but Russi Taylor plays one of the most famous characters in the world.
Taylor has been the voice of Minnie Mouse for more than 30 years, and that’s just a fraction of voice work she’s done in her long career. She’s played Huey, Dewey, and Louie in various Disney projects, Pebbles Flintstone in “The Flintstone Comedy Show,” Pac-Baby in the “Pac-Man” TV series, “Penny Tompkins” in “The Critic,” Baby Gonzo in “Muppet Babies,” and various characters over 17 years on “The Simpsons,” among too many others to count.
She’s currently working on Disney Television Animation’s new series “Mickey and the Roadster Racers,” which brings together all of Disney’s classic characters: Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, and Pluto. In “Racers,” Minnie and Daisy exemplify female empowerment as they run a business called Happy Helpers. It airs Fridays on the Disney Channel.

In just a few weeks, Alec Baldwin will return to Saturday Night Live to host for the 17th time, though he’s made waves this season with his ripe parody of Donald Trump, another broad-shouldered New Yorker who also doesn’t mince words.
Every time SNL’s host with the most drops in, the guy’s a total pro. The thing that makes the Baldwin, 58, effect reliably funny isn’t just his self-assured stature: he’s an experimental team player, and everyone around him is funnier for it.

With Gotham breaking again after the next two episodes it feels we barely have time to warm up before another hiatus is enforced. Which is why getting comfortable, becoming engaged or generally investing beyond a casual curiosity is ill-advised right now.
There are the usual shenanigans you come to expect, a funereal, assassination attempt and harsh words exchanged in full view of Gotham’s finest. But ultimately what we get here is a revenge tale, family reconciliations delivered with the subtlety of an incumbent President and our chief manipulator metaphorically waxing his moustache. Guest spots involving the return of certain characters provide that necessary shot in the arm, while Gordon, Bullock and company chase a coroner around Gotham while dodging pot shots from Victor Zsasz. Between that and Oswald’s slow mental disintegration, this is a disjointed if welcome addition to the season thus far. »
