The plot of the show, we're told, centres on Ash as an ‘aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the past three decades avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead.’
Naturally, that all changes ‘when a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons — personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its evil grip.’
Jones fits into proceedings as a disgraced state trooper from Michigan, who for some reason blames Ash for the ‘grisly murder’ of her partner. Soon enough, they team up to stop the invasion, we would assume. »
Scarlett Johansson is studying up to take "The Psychopath Test," Deadline reports. The actress will lead the Jay Roach ("Game Change," "Meet The Fockers") directed movie, based on Jon Ronson's book about "how the medical community tries to diagnose and classify an elusive group: remorseless, deadly psychopaths." Kristin Gore (David O. Russell's aborted "Nailed" aka "Accidental Love") penned the script for the psychological thriller, which is set up at Universal. Deadline also reports that Jerry Lewis is joining the Nicolas Cage movie "The Trust," playing the latter's father. Whoa. Elijah Wood and Sky Ferreira co-star in the movie about "two corrupt cops who are stuck working the evidence room of the Las Vegas police department. When one discovers there is a vault full of drug money sealed in the back of a convenience store, both cops team up to pull a heist. Lewis will play the father of. »

Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) will play the role of Pablo Simon Bolivar and Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) will play Kelly Maxwell in the Starz original series “Ash vs Evil Dead.” The series is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and is set to film on location in New Zealand this spring and premiere on Starz in late 2015.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the first actors to book their seats at the read through are Ray Santiago, of Meet the Fockers, and Dana DeLorenzo of A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas. With that kind of broad comedy on their resumes these guys shouldn’t have any trouble at all with Sam Raimi’s Three Stooges-inspired splatstick.
It’s not in the original report but I can add that both actors will play co-workers of Ash’s in a superstore, though this is maybe not the S.Mart of Army of Darkness fame. As the pilot episode unfolds, however, the rising Deadites will change everything and the characters’ business becomes not selling red vines »

Fans of the Evil Dead series are all excited as hell already, with Ash himself, Bruce Campbell, returning to fight deadites left and right in the upcoming Starz series, Ash Vs. Evil Dead, but today, we were notified of two more cast members, set to join Ash in his quest to beat the hell out of the deadites.
Ray Santiago (Suburban Gothic,“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) will play the role of Pablo Simon Bolivar and Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) will play Kelly Maxwell in the Starz original series “Ash vs Evil Dead.”
“Pablo Simon Bolivar is an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick – a Sancho Panza to Ash’s Don Quixote. Pablo believes in Ash’s heroism even if Ash himself doesn’t.
Kelly Maxwell is a moody wild child trying to outrun her past. Reluctantly dragged into the fight against Evil with Ash and Pablo, »

When Sam Raimi talked about the possibility of an Evil Dead TV series last year, there were many who thought the project would never see the light of day, but it became official late last year. Bruce Campbell is returning for Ash vs Evil Dead, a new TV series that will premiere later this year on Starz and we have the names of two people that will be joining Ash in his fight.
“Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) will play the role of Pablo Simon Bolivar and Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) will play Kelly Maxwell in the Starz original series “Ash vs Evil Dead.” The series is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and is set to film on location in New Zealand this spring and premiere on Starz in late 2015.

The indie drama stars Blythe Danner, a veteran Tony-winning stage actress who many recognize as the movie mom in the "Meet the Fockers" series --and the real mother of Gwyneth and Jake Paltrow; their father and her husband, producer Bruce Paltrow, died 13 years ago. In that sense she's familiar with the widow Carol Peterson in "I'll See You in My Dreams," who lives a comfortable but lonely life in Los Angeles with her shaggy old dog, having not kissed another man since the death of her husband 20 years before. When she has to put down her beloved canine companion, she's shaken and starts to open up, to her depressed young pool man (Martin Starr of "Silicon Valley"), who takes her out to sing karaoke (the former singer is sensational), to her young professional daughter (Marin Akerman) and her bridge group of fun retirees (Mary Kay Place, Rhea Perlman and June Squibb »

Even though Blythe Danner has appeared on countless TV shows (“Will & Grace”), films (“Meet the Fockers”) and Broadway plays (“Follies”), it took her 50 years as an actress to headline a movie. On Tuesday night, the Sundance Film Festival premiered “I’ll See You in My Dreams,” a comedic drama in which Danner stars as a woman who contemplates her own mortality following a tragic loss. But that description doesn’t do this crowd-pleasing indie justice. When the film debuted at the Eccles Theatre in Park City, Danner received a standing ovation. On a following morning screening, the audience showered Danner with more rounds of applause.
“I’m so overwhelmed,” Danner says later backstage. “I’m a little verklempt talking about it. I’m 71, about to turn 72. I’ve never had a film role like this.” It’s also the first time the Emmy-winning actress has received Oscar buzz, even if »
