To me Alan Tudyk will always be the pirate guy from the movie Dodgeball but I know that’s kind of insulting to his career. Tudyk’s appeared in numerous television shows and movies over his career but what can I say? I loved him in Dodgeball. Most people know Tudyk from his days on Firefly but most recently he was in Star Wars: Rogue One as K2-so. P.S. I liked him in Arrested Development as Pastor Veal and in Knocked Up as the show executive who says “tighten.” What people don’t often know about Tudyk is the myriad of voices he

A movie starring two famous actors who happen to be married in real-life: On paper, it sounds like it should be a sure-fire win. In reality? It’s not that simple.
It’s no wonder that famous couples might be hesitant to collaborate in a movie, even if it was guaranteed to smash the box office: Working with your spouse is hard, and it wouldn’t make it any easier to know that throngs of people would be examining the final product, looking for all possible glimpses into your personal life.
Occasionally, some famous couples have considered that possibility and decided, »

One percent. That is the surprising percentage of the world’s 21 million refugees who will resettle in another country after fleeing their war-torn homes. I had to ask the United Nations worker twice. “Just one percent of all refugees?” “Yes, and the number is shrinking.”
I was talking with a Unhcr Field Officer as he was verifying the biometric data of a Syrian family being interviewed for resettlement at the Un’s refugee registration center in Amman, Jordan. The fact that such a small fraction of those displaced people are even identified for »

“I think what happened to me after The Break-Up was I was kind of more ‘booking jobs’ and not working from that same catalyst of, ‘I really believe in this and we all want to make the same movie,'” acknowledges the actor Vince Vaughn as we sit down at the London West Hollywood hotel to discuss his career on The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. Following a remarkable run of hit comedies in the early 2000s — among them, 2003’s Old School, 2004’s Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and Starsky & Hutch and 2005’s Wedding Crashers — Vaughn had deliberately pivoted towards drama with the 2006 dramedy.

If you do not know what NBC's Powerless is, don't think that you are in for another action packed DC series. It is far from that, the show premiers in February, and it will be a comedy based on Vanessa Hudgen's character who gets her dream job at Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises, and her boss Alan Tudyk that plays the cousin of Bruce Wayne himself, Van Wayne.
Emily Locke lands her dream job as Director of Research and Development for Wayne Security in Charm City, home to super heroes and villains and citizens fed up with the collateral damage of their constant fighting. Full of confidence and big ideas, Emily quickly learns that her aspirations far exceed those of her new boss and officemates, so it will be up to her to lead the team toward their full potential and the realization that you don’t need superpowers to be a hero. »

“Television. The strange thing about television is that it – doesn’t *tell* you everything. It *shows* you everything about life on Earth, but the true mysteries remain. Perhaps it’s in the nature of television. Just waves in space.”
