Dwayne Johnson Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best and Worst Sketches

16 hours ago | | See recent news »

It’s almost too easy to declare that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson “rocked” as host of this week’s Saturday Night Live — but that doesn’t mean such a statement would be inaccurate.

In fact, it says a lot about the Furious 7 star’s comedic chops that the evening’s worst sketches either gave him absolutely nothing to do (“Cooking With Paul”) or didn’t include him at all (“The Circus”).

Johnson proved so fearlessly committed to his punch lines that he even scored a few laughs »

Grimm Star Claire Coffee Previews What to Expect Now That Adalind's Hexpecting (Again!)

And here we thought Grimm‘s first hybrid baby was going to be a Blutbau or a Fuchsbad or something of that ilk.

But nope; as viewers of last week’s episode are well aware, NBC’s fairytale drama (Friday, 8/7c) is moving forward with another Adalind pregnancy (spurred by actress Claire Coffee‘s real-life expectant state).

Nickelodeon Reveals Cast for ‘School of Rock’ Series

26 March 2015 10:55 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Nickelodeon is ready to rock.

The kids’ cabler and Paramount Television announced the full cast for the upcoming “School of Rock” series, based on the 2003 Jack Black movie. The TV adaptation is currently in production at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles and is set to premiere this fall.

Ricardo Hurtado, Lance Lim, Aidan Miner, Jade Pettyjohn and Breanna Yde have been cast as the “School of Rock” students, joining Tony Cavalero, who will topline the live-action, musical comedy series, playing musician-turned-substitute teacher Dewey.

The series will follow Dewey, who becomes the most unique and well-liked teacher the students have ever had. Although he has an alternative approach to teaching and could probably learn more from his students about history or math, he uses the language of rock ‘n’ roll to elevate and inspire his class to reach new heights as the band called School of Rock.

Hurtado has been cast as Freddy, »

Our Favourite Fictional Bands: The School of Rock

The School of Rock (School of Rock)

Say what you will about Boyhood and Before Midnight, but Richard Linklater’s most memorable legacy to this 2000s teen may be the lyrics to each and every fake song throughout School of Rock, from hearing how the Legend of the Rent was Way Hardcore to about the best parody of The Doors’ “Touch Me” you’re bound to hear. The film wouldn’t be nearly as good if the closing performance of The School of Rock wasn’t kind of great, and the kids throughout truly deliver. Chalk up another great musical capper for Jack Black, as well as just about the ideal closer to a blockbuster family comedy you could ask for.

Richard Linklater Lines Up Yet Another New Project

26 February 2015 10:08 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It's hard to keep track of the ream of projects the Oscar-snubbed Linklater is courting on a given day. For one, he's executive-producing a TV sitcom restart of his 2003 "School of Rock" slated for Nickelodeon later this year. Also, the Independent Spirit Winner — a no-show at the ceremony, where Ethan Hawke accepted the prize — is wrapping "That's What I'm Talking About," a sort of "Dazed and Confused" sequel about the lives of baseball players on and off the field. And he's thinking seriously about a "Boyhood" sequel, albeit not one that would take place across 12 years. The Hollywood Reporter now says that Linklater is circling "Where'd You Go Bernadette" for Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures. Based on Maria Semple's 2012 bestseller that unfolds via epistolary missives — emails, letters, legal documents, psychiatric visits and more — the book follows the story of an agoraphobic architect who mysteriously disappears before a »

With Ratings in Flux, Nickelodeon Puts Upfront Focus on Shows

25 February 2015 5:54 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Kid-focused Nickelodeon expects to air more than 600 episodes of new and returning series in the TV season to come, part of an effort to win advertisers over with a surfeit of the original programming its executives said the network’s young audience craves.

“We’re making more and we are making it faster,” said Cyma Zarghami, president of the Viscom Kids and Family Group, the Viacom unit that houses Nick and a suite of other youth-skewing outlets.

On the docket for the season ahead: Three new series meant to run five days a week for several weeks at a time; a live-action series based on the movie “School of Rock”; and a new series from producers Sid and Marty Kroft. Nickelodeon also articulated developing plans to put popular character SpongeBob SquarePants in a Broadway musical and to extend its Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.

Watch: An Awesome Tribute To The Films Of Richard Linklater

23 February 2015 3:05 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s time for die-hard fans of Richard Linklater’s sublime 12-year project, “Boyhood,” to lick their wounds after the “Birdman” win at yesterday’s Oscars. If it’s any consolation, both “Boyhood” and “Birdman” were inventive and daring in their own ways, and a win for either should provide Hollywood with some incentive to jump out of its comfort zone and pursue interesting and subversive material. If one of the bland biopics like “The Imitation Game” or “The Theory of Everything” had won, we’d be looking down the barrel of lazy Oscar bait for years to come. That being said, it’s perfectly understandable that Linklater fans are frustrated by the Academy’s vote. Perhaps in order to remind them that Linklater never needed the Academy’s support in order to create versatile and original material, YouTube’s Joel Walden put together a skillfully edited and brisk three-and-a-half »

Flashback: Richard Linklater's Experimental Approach in 1995's 'Before Sunrise' Was Sundance's Real Breakout Hit

27 January 2015 9:10 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Most Richard Linklater fans can tell you which film – and sometimes which scene – ignited their enthusiasm for the director, whether it was 1991’s influential indie Slacker, 1993’s high-school classic Dazed and Confused or 2003’s comedy School of Rock.

But, it all began with Before Sunrise.

Released 20 years ago this week, Before Sunrise boasted fresh-faced actors and a swoon-worthy premise: An American man (Ethan Hawke) meets a French woman (Julie Delpy) on a train, and they spend one magical evening together in Vienna. That alone was enough to attract my 17-year-old self to the theater, as was the case with many of my peers.

News: Julie & Ethan Reunite 'Before Midnight'

The true magic of Before Sunrise, however, lies beyond the picturesque scenery and smitten gazes. Building upon his gift for crafting relatable and engrossing conversation, Linklater’s characters feel fully formed, discussing everything from philosophy and religion to love and their hopes for the future.
