FX is ready to cross "The Bridge."
The cable network has announced Thursday (May 23) that its newest original drama series will premiere on Wednesday, July 10 at 10 p.m. Et. "The Bridge" is a present-day crime thriller that explores the tensions on the Us-Mexico border, starring Diane Kruger ("Inglorious Basterds") and Demian Bichir ("Weeds").
When an American judge known for her anti-immigration views is found dead on the bridge connecting El Paso and Juarez, Sonya Cross (Kruger) from El Paso Pd must work with her Mexican counterpart from Chihuahua State Police, Marco Ruiz (Bichir), to catch a serial killer operating on both sides of the border. The case quickly pulls the charming and cunning Marco and strict, off-putting Sonya into a string of murders on the border, a scene already consumed by illegal immigration, drug trafficking, violence and prostitution.
"We Are Men" on CBS is bringing Tony Shalhoub back to TV. The "Monk" star appears opposite Kal Penn, Jerry O'Connell and Chris Smith in the new comedy about four divorced men living in a short-term housing complex trying -- and often failing -- at finding new love.
Since the show is about four friends, The Huffington Post asked the four stars to describe their new show in four words.
Jerry O'Connell: "We are divorced men."
Tony Shalhoub: "Not good at committed relationships." [Technically it's five words, but he won three Emmys for "Monk," so it's excusable.]
Chris Smith: "Good guys, bad ideas."
Kal Penn: "Friendship, love, mistakes, ridiculousness."
O'Connell said the show has a great message. "It's a comedy and it does make fun of being recently divorced, but it's got a great message. »

Will CBS make you laugh this year? Well, they'll certainly try. Beware: instead of regular previews, they've decided to just post these behind-the-scenes promos. So, take what you get. First up, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Robin Williams are paired up as father-daughter advertising executives in The Crazy Ones, a David E. Kelley joint.We Are Men, a comedy featuring Kal Penn, Tony Shalhoub, and Jerry O'Connell airs Mondays at 8:30 p.m. and is about a bunch of bros living together in a short-term apartment complex. Adrian Monk would not approve. Executive Producer Chuck Lorre's Mom stars Anna Faris and Allison Janney as a mother-daughter duo who are both recovering alcoholics. So like Gilmore Girls, but with super dysfunction. Nate Corddry and French Stewart(!) are also there, hanging out. »

Despite denials from producers and Steve Carell himself, the one-time star of "The Office," will be returning for an appearance in the upcoming series finale. The long-running laffer signs off with a super-sized 75-minute finale on May 16. Carell contended six consecutive times in the Comedy Actor category for his portrayal of the now-iconic Michael Scott, the rude, yet sensitive, often inappropriate regional manager of the Scranton branch of the Dunder Mifflin paper company. He went home empty-handed every year, losing first to Tony Shalhoub ("Monk") in 2006, then in the ultimate irony to "Office" creator Ricky Gervais ("Extras") in 2007 before being bested by a pair of back-to-back champs -- Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock"; 2008, 2009) and Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory"; 2010, 2011). But could Carell now prevail in the Comedy Guest Actor race? After all, guesting proved to be th »
Tony plays an unlikeable victim in Michael Bay’s Pain & Gain, but the actor doesn’t see himself as a ‘bad guy’ since he never judges his characters. The actor also reveals whether a Monk movie is in his near future.
Tony Shalhoub is best known for his role as Monk, the television series that ran for eight years (2002-2009) on USA. For a much different role in Pain & Gain, Tony takes on a rare role in which he plays the real life victim of the Miami Sun Gym gang who was kidnapped, tortured, extorted of all his wealth and survived three attempts on his life. He can easily be called the victim, but he’s far from being an upstanding citizen. As Victor Kershaw, the self-made millionaire (from questionable deals) is arrogant and mean-spirited. Most audience have little sympathy for

Having already seen its Stateside release back in March, 21 and Over is finally arriving on our shores this weekend here in the UK.
The comedy marks the directorial debuts of Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the writing duo behind The Hangover and The Change-Up. And with its UK release date fast approaching this Friday, we’ve got an exclusive clip to share from the film, teasing the comedic chemistry between the young leading trio.
Straight-a college student Jeff Chang has always done what’s expected of him. But when his two best friends Casey and Miller surprise him with a visit for his 21st birthday, he decides to do the unexpected for a change, even though his critical medical school interview is early the next morning. What was supposed to be one beer becomes one night of chaos, over indulgence and utter debauchery in this outrageous comedy.

Exclusive: Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman’s Mandeville Films has brought in ABC Studios-based producer Laurie Zaks (Castle) as president of television. Zaks replaces Maria Crenna, who is leaving after a one-year stint. Mandeville, which has been at ABC Studios for more than a decade, has signed a new two-year deal with the studio where the company originally developed its USA hit Monk. Mandeville has a comedy pilot in serious contention at ABC, the John Leguizamo starrer King John. Crenna will remain an executive producer on the pilot but won’t be involved if it goes to series. Zaks has been at ABC Studios since 2006 when she left the network executive ranks to become president of Armyan Bernstein’s Touchstone TV-based Beacon Television. At Beacon, Zaks developed ABC’s Castle, on which she serves as executive producer. Zaks, who is well liked at ABC Studios, signed an overall deal »

After working primarily in science fiction for over five years, director Michael Bay will soon be returning to the genre that initially launched him into feature filmmaking, with the R-rated action-comedy, Pain & Gain. In the film’s (very loosely adapted) true-life story, down-and-out bodybuilder Daniel Lugo concocts a scheme to kidnap a rich, unscrupulous member of his gym. Unfortunately, Daniel and his accomplices are rank amateurs when it comes to criminality, and their plan starts going sour almost from its opening moments.
Bay oversees a cast headlined by Mark Wahlberg (Ted), Dwayne Johnson (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), Anthony Mackie (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), and Tony Shalhoub (Monk). He works from a script by Christopher Markus (Thor: The Dark World) and Stephen McFeely (Captain America: The First Avenger).

Miami — The real-life murder, torture and kidnapping case from South Florida that's behind the coming movie "Pain & Gain" indeed reads like a script – just not a funny one.
The fact that the film, starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, is an action-comedy has angered survivors of the Sun Gym gang's crimes and those who investigated them nearly two decades ago.
"You are talking about real people. And in this particular case, especially when you're talking about the murder victims, these were innocent victims," retired Miami-Dade Police Sgt. Felix Jimenez said.
Zsuzsanna Griga told The Miami Herald that the movie's depiction of the gang as sympathetic bumblers just trying to get ahead is "ridiculous." Her brother and his girlfriend were murdered and dismembered by them.
"It's horrible what happened to them," said Griga, who lives in Hungary. She could not be reached by The Associated Press. "I don't want »
Before he turns his attention back to the Autobots and Decepticons for Transformers 4, Michael Bay is set to release his "dream project" this spring, the crime caper Pain & Gain starring Mark Wahlberg (The Fighter, Ted) and Dwayne Johnson (Fast & Furious 6, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) as two knucklehead bodybuilders who find themselves embroiled in a kidnapping scheme.
Ahead of its arrival in the States next month, Paramount Pictures has released three new images and a red band trailer for the film, which also stars Ed Harris (Man on a Ledge), Anthony Mackie (Gangster Squad), Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect), Ken Jeong (The Hangover), Tony Shalhoub (Monk), Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine) and wrestling star Kurt Angle (Warrior).
Pain & Gain is set for release on April 26th, 2013 in North America and May 3rd, 2013 in the UK. »

Anything that has a “Guillermo Del Toro Presents…” tag above a film, be it horror or otherwise, I know I can get excited about because that man just has an eye for some bizarre and refreshingly original content and he hasn’t let me down yet.
Mama comes from the twisted minds of Andrés Muschietti and Bárbara Muschietti and is the result of Guillermo Del Toro discovering their 2008 short film Mamá and being so impressed by it that he helped the duo develop a feature film around the concept with bigger toys to play with in the sandbox.
I could begin this sentence by going into the plot and setting up the storyline for you all, but Mama is one of those horror films where you are best going into blind and discovering plot details for yourself and even beginning to describe how this »
You know things are going to go badly when someone says, "I've watched a lot of movies; I know what I'm doing!" And that's just what happens in the red-band trailer for "Pain and Gain," the upcoming caper comedy from Michael Bay. Yes, that Michael Bay has turned a true crime story about bodybuilders who want to get rich quick by ripping off a local criminal into a small-budget (for Bay, anyway) movie. Here, Anthony Mackie, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and Mark Wahlberg star as the trio of meatheads who decide they're tired of being low men on the totem pole. Wahlberg's character has an affinity for self-help, as evidenced by a bizarro cameo by Ken Jeong, while Mackie's guy has whatever the opposite of 'roid rage is. Rebel Wilson appears as a nurse with some super juicy jokes, and Tony Shalhoub leaves his thoughtful and neurotic "Monk" behind to get tasered in slow-mo. »

The family film comes from director Mark Freiburger and stars Ian Colletti, Ted Levine (Monk, The Hills Have Eyes), Patrick Fabian (The Last Exorcism, Big Love, Veronica Mars), Kelly Carlson (Nip/Tuck, Melrose Place), Bob Gunton, Burgess Jenkins, Stelio Savante, Chuck Carrington, Sharon Lawrence, and Gregory Alan Williams. The plot revolves around “a mentally challenged teenager (Colletti) who interacts with supernatural beings he calls Watchers.” If that means a bunch of Giles’ running around, I’m in. Here’s the trailer:

The trio eventually decided to save Nelson.

The first season of "Mortal Kombat: Legacy" was pretty solid fun, and director Kevin Tancharoen is back for a second season of the web series, taking the action to Outworld, and adding some new performers to the cast.
