Long before his TV success, Jeffrey Tambor spent many years in repertory theater. Recalling those days, when he traveled around the country performing in cities such as Seattle, San Diego and Louisville, Tambor says, “There was an actor playing Casca in ‘Julius Caesar.’ He read my palm and I rolled my eyes, but he said [success] is going to happen but very late.”
The 73-year-old actor says he is “stunned and grateful and happy” about receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Aug. 8. He recalls a childhood visit to Los Angeles from San Francisco, where he grew up. “I remember my father, Bernard, took my brother Larry and I — I was 10 years old, if that — to Hollywood,” he says. “We did the thing where you put your handprints where Clark Gable’s were. So this is quite the circle, quite a moment for me.”
Tambor began acting on the small screen in 1977. He racked up »

This summer, it's Mandy Moore's turn to fight a shark. In 47 Meters Down (out June 16), the onetime "Candy" singer stars alongside Vampire Diaries actress Claire Holt as two sisters whose vacation takes a turn for the worst when their diving cage breaks away from a boat and sinks to the bottom of the ocean. To get to safety, the sisters will have to swim through waters infested by bloodthirsty great white sharks. Guess how far that swim is? Anyway, here's something strange: I own a copy of this movie on DVD, except it's titled In the Deep.
That's because 47 Meters Down was initially set to be released straight-to-dvd last August, just a little over a month after the summer's other shark attack movie, The Shallows, hit theaters on June 24. (Another weird fact: In the Deep, which 47 Meters Down was briefly rebranded, was the original name of The Shallows from Anthony Jaswinski's script.) In the end, it's not »
“I’m in a completely different chapter of my life, and I don’t begrudge anything.”
On a balmy Sunday afternoon in April, Mandy Moore lounges on a white leather couch in a corner of a bare four-star West Hollywood, California, hotel room, counting down the final minutes of a rare day of work during a picturesque spring weekend. Glam in a chic designer black dress and barely there makeup from a prior event, gone in that moment is any sign of the bubbly teenage blonde pop star singing about puppy love in “Candy.” In her place is a mature, fulfilled 33-year-old who has since demanded the world’s attention on This Is Us.
In NBC’s undisputed breakout family drama, Moore slips into the complicated world of Rebecca Pearson, wife and mother of three (twins and an adopted son), with a signature performance that’s deft and understated in its time-jumping complexities. Getting to this »
From women in animation to hot debuts, Screen previews the festival.
The Annecy International Animated Film Festival (June 12-17) opens today. Screen runs through five key things to look out for.
1. Key debuts
Annecy will host first-look footage of Pixar’s upcoming title Coco (pictured) and showcase the world premiere of Universal’s Despicable Me 3, two of the most anticipated animation movies of the year. The level of buzz will be telling.
The response to Animal Crackerz, the starry Spanish-us co-pro, will also be intriguing.
At the other end of the financial spectrum, the festival will host the premiere of Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman’s Loving Vincent, which is billed as the world’s ‘first fully-painted feature film’. The biopic of Vincent Van Gogh was made by 125 painters producing more than 60,000 oil paintings. In advance of the Annecy premiere, the film’s trailer racked up 2.6m views on YouTube.

While Disney’s animation unit continues to operate out of its lot in Burbank, Pixar never moved in. Eleven years after the beloved company was acquired by Disney, Pixar continues to operate out of its campus in the Bay Area, much of its staff has worked there for decades, and it enjoys a fair amount of autonomy from the parent company.
However, one major development has stood out in Pixar’s post-Disney life: Sequels. Prior to the Disney acquisition, Pixar had only produced one sequel to its treasured slate — “Toy Story 2,” which didn’t tarnish the brand — but it has made four sequels since the acquisition (“Toy Story 3,” “Cars 2,” “Monsters University” and “Finding Dory”). What’s more, three of the four Pixar movies slated to be released in the next two years are sequels: “Cars 3” in 2017, “The Incredibles 2” in 2018 and “Toy Story 4” in 2019. For »

But the truth is, everything about Andi’s life has changed. For starters, her “mother” is actually her grandmother — a long-buried secret that’s finally unearthed when Andi’s cool “older sister” returns home for an extended visit.
As you can imagine, the Mack family’s world is turned upside down as each member adjusts to its new role; my favorite moment is when Andi »
Disney Channel on Tuesday made its previously announced That’s So Raven spinoff official by ordering it to series — and giving it a title: Raven’s Home — but not even Raven Baxter herself could have foreseen the incredible casting news that would follow.
In addition to Raven-Symoné reprising her role as the original series’ titular psychic, Anneliese van der Pol — who played Raven’s best friend Chelsea for all four seasons of the Disney Channel hit — will also return as a series regular.

ABC’s Imaginary Mary is trying something new: adding an animated CGI character to the cast of a live-action series. And like a lot of Hollywood stars, that CGI character went through a few nips and tucks on the way to primetime.
In the new midseason comedy (debuting this Wednesday at 8:30/7:30c), Jenna Elfman stars as Alice, a career woman whose imaginary friend from childhood, Mary (voiced by SNL alum Rachel Dratch), suddenly reappears in her life. Mary’s always helped Alice through hard times, and she’s back to help her cope when Alice’s boyfriend Ben »
Mandy Moore might need help seeing the light—because this fan theory is dark. As the voice behind Disney's Rapunzel, the actress and singer weighed in on an Internet hypothesis connecting her Tangled character with Frozen and The Little Mermaid. Here's some background on the ongoing theory—first, fans noticed Rapunzel and Flynn in the crowd of attendees at Elsa's coronation in Frozen. While Disney is known to leave easter eggs hidden in films for viewers to catch, aficionados took the subtle presence of the characters one step further by coming up with a reason for why Moore's princess would attend a separate character's »
In our age of cinematic universes, it’s fun to indulge in fan theories that link movies together in creative ways. But “Tangled” star Mandy Moore thinks that one attempt by Disney fans to link her film with “Frozen” might have gone a bit too far. In “Frozen,” fans were surprised to see what looked like Rapunzel and Flynn in the crowd attending Elsa’s coronation. From that subtle Easter egg sprung a morbid fan theory: the reason why Rapunzel and Flynn were in Arendelle is because Elsa and Anna’s parents died in a shipwreck en route to Rapunzel and Flynn’s wedding, »

That’s right, I’m talking about the fourth wall-breaking confessionals, which have been a staple of the sitcom ever since it premiered in July 2013. You probably never wondered why the characters do them, but a reason was given during Friday’s finale — and, honestly, it was kind of brilliant.
Thanks to an inquisitive Dump Truck, »
With the live-action “Beauty and the Beast” big screen movie nearing $500 million at the worldwide box office, Mandy Moore says she hopes Disney will soon create a “Tangled” live-action version. Et Canada sits down with the film’s stars Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi to speak about reprising their respective roles as Rapunzel and Flynn […] »

While discussing Disney Channel’s Tangled: The Series — which premieres Friday at 7:30/6:30c — TVLine presented Moore, who voices Rapunzel, with the popular (albeit debunked) internet theory that Anna and Elsa’s parents’ ship sunk while they were on their way to attend Rapunzel and Flynn’s wedding.
“That’s a pretty morbid fan theory, »
