Back in October 2014 it was revealed that Bill Lawrence (Cougar Town, Scrubs) was developing a TV reboot of the popular Jackie Chan/Chris Tucker buddy-cop comedy Rush Hour.

Nicolas Cage has a formidable reputation, which is unsurprising given that he has been performing onscreen since 1981, but that was long before the internet got hold of him and his work. Now, in the fourth decade of a distinguished career, the Academy Award winner and his back catalogue are the inspiration for a range of ‘memes’ based on everything from his hair, to his tendency to deliver performances that seem to be somewhat off-the-wall.
He may not have enjoyed much box office success in recent years, but Nicolas Cage has a very devoted fan base that have a particular appreciation for projects and scenes in which he has a chance to go ‘Full Cage.’ This usually involves making some scary faces – often with wide eyes and a ghoulish grin – shouting very loudly, and gesticulating wildly. There may be screaming involved, and another person is very often the focus of his menace. »

In the late 1890s, Frederick Hill Meserve, the son of a Union solider, started collecting photographs from the Civil War. Collecting images — particularly those of President Lincoln — became something of an obsession, and he eventually acquired the largest single collection of Lincoln images. Meserve’s collection was used as the basis for the penny, the portrait on the $5 bill, the Lincoln Memorial and Mount Rushmore. The collection is vast — over 70,000 items — and became a family project for five generations. As if this didn’t sound more amazing than the plot of National Treasure, it gets better: Dorothy Meserve […] »

Nicolas Cage is a workhorse and may be one of the busiest actors today. In an era where big name actors might release a single movie per year, Cage typically comes out with three, four or even five. At any given time he may have over a half dozen movies in various stages of production. Cage is a good actor, often a very good actor, and has made some very entertaining movies that stand up to repeat viewings. I enjoy much of what he does from the over-the-top supernatural action-horror movies “Ghost Rider” and “Drive Angry,” to the adventure-mystery “National Treasure” franchise and his voice work for about a half-dozen animated movies. His list of credits and genres is vast and, if his movie output is any indication, he’s a very busy guy. This can be a good thing for Cage fans, but may result in »

Justin Hires, who has had bit parts in 21 Jump Street, Stomp the Yard and Key & Peele, has taken the second lead in CBS and Warner Bros. TV's Rush Hour pilot. He will take on the role of Carter, originated by Chris Tucker in the 1998 Rush Hour movie. The studio decided to go with two relatively unknown actors to headline the show, also casting Jon Foo, best known for the video adaptation Tekken, in the Jackie Chan role of Lee.
Justin Hires reportedly beat out quite a few well known actors for the role of Carter, though none of the other hopefuls were mentioned by name. The studio wanted to go with unknowns, as they felt the roles were too closely associated with Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker. Jon Turteltaub, known for the National Treasure franchise, will helm the pilot and is an executive producer, alongside writers and executive producers Bill Lawrence and Blake McCormick. »
A host of celebrities will be battling it out to be crowned National Treasure 2015 at this year's Comic Relief.
David Walliams said: "To make a good Comic Relief sketch you need something special, you need big guest stars and something you can only see on that one day of the year - Red Nose Day. For me, this is hopefully all of those things.
"I'm really excited about this year's Red Nose Day campaign because it's a real bumper year for comedy, and the whole reason that I loved Comic Relief at school and beyond was because I loved comedy. »
Foo’s previous credits include bit parts in the likes of Batman Begins and Universal Soldier: Regeneration, while he also starred as Jin Kazama in the Tekken movie, as well as Ryu in the acclaimed fan film Street Fighter: Legacy.
The Rush Hour pilot is being directed by Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure), while series Bill Lawrence (Scrubs) and Blake McCormick (Mad Men) write and executive producer alongside Rush Hour helmer Brett Ratner and producer Arthur Sarkissian.
