Jack Black's 17 Best Movie Roles

20 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

With over 40 films under his belt, Jack Black has quite the resume.

He made his film debut as a political groupie in 1992's "Bob Roberts." He was also Sean Penn's brother in "Dead Man Walking," the head of "The Nasties" in "The Neverending Story III," and target practice for Bruce Willis in "The Jackal."

But none of those roles made a mark: It's his wild child rock persona we loved in "School of Rock" and "High Fidelity," not to mention his teddy-bear soft side in "The Holiday" and the movies that prove he can more than hold his own as a dramatic actor. (Insert off-color joke here.)

In honor of Black's birthday, raise your goblet of rock to toast his 17 best movie roles. »

Mr. Robinson Season 1 Review

4 August 2015 1:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

On paper, planting Craig Robinson as the star of his own sitcom in which he shenanigan-izes his way into teaching public school kids music isn’t a bad idea. Robinson has proven his mettle along with the likes of Seth Rogen and Danny McBride in movies like This Is The End, and the tease of seeing his shtick once a week is endearing.

NBC’s Mr. Robinson, however, is not. It’s one of the most weak, formulaic and downright offensively unfunny sitcoms to come along in quite some time. It sticks Robinson in a lead role that’s so spick-and-span clean he’s reduced to becoming what I’d imagine Chef from South Park would end up like on the Disney Channel, and it doesn’t even have the decency to light a fire under its star with snappy dialogue.

But the funny thing is, »

TV Review: ‘Mr. Robinson’

4 August 2015 7:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC sent out all six episodes of “Mr. Robinson,” which is puzzling, because it’s one of those shows that can be assessed after roughly 10 minutes. Craig Robinson (“The Office”) plays Craig Robinson, the lead singer-keyboardist for a funk band called Nasty Delicious, who croons suggestive tunes to excessively appreciative extras in a small-club setting, and — in a demographically desirable plot twist — teaches music to high school kids. The resulting sitcom doesn’t live up (or down) to either half of the band’s name, and seems destined to test how fast people can operate the remote after “America’s Got Talent.”

Although performing is his first love, Craig can use extra cash, and settles on the idea of substitute-teaching mostly because he has run into an old crush (Meagan Good, already signed on for this fall’s “Minority Report”) with whom he’d like to reconnect. She teaches at their old high school, »

What Hollywood Gets Right (and So Wrong) About Staten Island

30 July 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The release of Saturday Night Live head writer — and Staten Island native — Colin Jost’s coming-of-age comedy Staten Island Summer (available on Netflix Friday after a one-week run in theaters) isn’t the first time the “forgotten borough” has taken center stage in a movie or TV show. But as a native myself, I’ve always been surprised by how underrepresented the Island has been onscreen. Apart from 2009’s Staten Island (a barely noticed crime drama starring Ethan Hawke), the Island’s main claim to fame on the big screen has been when it doubled for other places in movies: The Godfather (Long Island), Safe Men (Rhode Island, weirdly enough), and School of Rock, where the venerable St. George Theatre was the setting for the final battle of the bands, though the location was never identified. The theater also performed double-duty on TV’s Smash, where it served as both »

'Goosebumps' Set Visit: Jack Black Talks Monsters and R.L. Stine

28 July 2015 3:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last summer, Movieweb was invited by Sony Pictures to the set of Goosebumps in Atlanta, Georgia. Goosebumps, for anyone living under a rock for the last thirty years, is a collection of children's horror books by author R.L. Stine. Stine is one of the best-selling writers in history with over four hundred million books sold. Goosebumps has had several adaptations over the years, but this is the first big-budget, Hollywood movie. Goosebumps is produced by Scholastic Media's Executive Vice-President, Deborah Forte; an industry stalwart who was also responsible for the popular 90s TV show based on the books. Jack Black stars with direction by animation and effects veteran Rob Letterman.

Our first note from Sony was to wear proper shoes. This is what you want to hear as a reporter attending a movie set. Why? Because the odds of just sitting around in a studio for hours watching takes is substantially decreased. »

Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘Rosie Project’ Eyes Director Richard Linklater

27 July 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony is eyeing “Boyhood” director Richard Linklater to helm Jennifer Lawrence’s dramedy “The Rosie Project.”

The movie, based on the Graeme Simsion novel, centers on a socially awkward genetics professor who devises a science-based survey to find the perfect mate — only to see those theories splintered when he meets the spontaneous Rosie Jarman (played by Lawrence), who possesses the opposite qualities.

Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, who teamed on “(500) Days of Summer,” have revised Simsion’s  adaptation of the novel. “The Lego Movie” co-directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were initially interested, but have opted to take on Disney’s Han Solo “Star Wars” standalone movie.

Sony acquired the film rights to “The Rosie Project” last year and set it up with Sony-based producers Matt Tolmach and Michael Costigan.

Paramount announced Monday that it will release Linklater’s baseball comedy — formerly titled “That’s What I’m Talking About »

‘Goosebumps’ wants to drown you in nostalgia, will probably succeed

21 July 2015 2:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Going on a set visit is a bit like going on a blind date. Despite a detailed itinerary, you never really know what you’ve signed up for. But if you’re lucky it will make a great story later. A little over a year ago, I went on a date with “Goosebumps.” By the end of it, I was muddy, had surreptitiously broken part of a set, had my picture taken with a dummy, and fallen down a nostalgia rabbit hole deep enough to drown in. Climb inside my brain for a front row seat to the ups and downs of visiting the set of “Goosebumps”!

'Fatal Attraction' TV Event Series Planned with 'Mad Men' Writers

1 July 2015 1:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fox is teaming up with Mad Men writers Andr&#233 Jacquemetton and Maria Jacquemetton to write and executive produce an event series based on the 1987 thriller Fatal Attraction. The one-hour series is being developed through Paramount Television, with the Fox Broadcasting Company commissioning the script. Fox's president of entertainment, David Madden, developed the original Fatal Attraction movie while working as a Paramount executive.

No specific plot details were released, but the event series will follow a married man's affair that haunts him in deadly ways. The original thriller, directed by Adrian Lyne, centered on Dan Gallagher (Michael Douglas), a wealthy lawyer who has a weekend fling with a publishing executive named Alex Forest (Glenn Close) that leads to the deranged woman stalking his family. The movie spawned the popular term "bunny boiler", after one of the thriller's most memorable scenes where Alex literally boils a rabbit.

TV Taking On the Big Screen: ‘Rush Hour,’ ‘Minority Report’ & More Movie Adaptations

11 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With multiplatform content, A-list stars and better programming than ever before, TV is the new cool kid in town. But the smallscreen hasn’t forgotten about the bigscreen.

Feature films have inspired 10 series set to premiere this summer and throughout the upcoming season across broadcast, cable and streaming services.

Before the networks unveiled their 2015-16 slates, even more scripted adaptations of movie screenplays were filtered through the pilot cycle, including NBC’s “Problem Child” sitcom, based on the 1990 John Ritter comedy, which ultimately wasn’t handed a series order. NBC, which until recently was home to both “Parenthood” and “About a Boy,” is now the only big four network not to have a movie adaptation on its upcoming schedule.

Over at CBS, two features and a documentary are being converted into series.
