Back in 2001, we talked to the rising young star on the set of Nickelodeon's 'The Amanda Show.' What went wrong?
Airing from 1999 to 2002, the All That spin-off show turned Bynes, now 28, into a star.
But clearly, it hasn't all been smooth sailing from there. In the last month, the troubled actress has made daily headlines with erratic behavior, explosive allegations and – on October 10 – a return to being held at a psychiatric treatment facility, potentially for up to a year.
Both Bynes' mental health struggles and trouble with the law are well-documented, but when did it all start going south for the troubled child star?
Let's take a look back at a timeline of her troubles »
When his off-the-grid best buddy Ben Baker (Galifianakis) inherits his estranged father’s fortune, womanizing local weatherman Steve Dallas (Wilson) joins forces with him to battle the legal challenge brought by Ben’s formidable sister (Poehler).
Watch this behind-the-scenes clip featuring Owen Wilson.
The movie stars Emmy nominee Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover trilogy), Academy Award nominee Owen Wilson (Wedding Crashers, Marley & Me, Midnight in Paris), Golden Globe winner Amy Poehler (Mean Girls, NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”), Emmy nominee Jenna Fischer (NBC’s “The Office,” Hall Pass) and Laura Ramsey (She’s The Man, Mad Men).

Matthew Weiner of Mad Men fame is coming you way with his feature film writing/directing debut, Are You Here. The bizarre-sounding story is brought to you with a cast you might expect isn’t difficult for someone with Mad Men under his belt to get into his film.
Ben (Zach Galifianakis) inherits a sizable fortune when his father dies, despite the fact that Ben lives off-the-grid and had been estranged from his father. Steve Dalls (Owen Wilson), a womanizer and local television personality, is a friend of Ben’s, and decides to join up with Ben to fight the legal battle brought by Ben’s sister (Amy Poehler), but there’s a lot more going on than that. Check the trailer below for more of an idea of the ins and outs of friendship that are explored in this one.
The comedy certainly has the talent, including an impressive supporting cast, »

“There are two facts that tend to amaze people,” says Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe. “That during my whole life I’ve only spent four weeks total in L.A. and that I’ve never been to Comic-Con.”
Thanks to the fantasy thriller Horns (out Oct. 31), in which he plays a young man who sprouts devilish protuberances from his head, the actor made his first appearance at the San Diego fanfest on July 25. A few moments after leaving his inaugural Hall H panel, the 25-year-old shared some of the highlights of his trip.

Jason Sudeikis is in talks to join Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson, and Kristen Wiig in a heist comedy to be directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite). Sudeikis has worked with all three of the other stars before, appearing with Wilson in Hall Pass and Galifianakis in The Campaign. He worked with Wiig for several years on SNL and was visibly emotional when she bid her farewell to the show. The project, which used to be called Loomis Fargo, is based on an original screenplay by Emily Spivey, but a new script was written by Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer. There is no title at the moment.
The script is based on the true story of a disgruntled armored car driver who stole nearly $20 million from his company’s vault. When his comrades double-cross him, he is left alone and on the run, and his thoughts turn toward revenge.

The best kind of career is the one where you can be funny and relaxed amidst a group of other funny actors with no pressure necessary. The expectations on Jason Sudeikis are that he become one of this generation's comedic leading men, but it seems like he's absolutely chill with having this sort of comedic character actor career where he can enter a movie with a sensible shirt, crack some jokes, then cede the spotlight to others. And with his next project, Sudeikis is not straying far from that formula. The Wrap reports that Sudeikis has joined the untitled heist comedy that is set to star Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig and Owen Wilson (Hall Pass reunion!). Galifianakis plays an armored truck driver who plots with a team of associates to rob his company of millions. When his partners double cross him and leave him stranded in Mexico, however, he must »
It’s the night of the tough-to-type surnames as comedy star Jason Sudeikis is to appear alongside his Campaign compadre Zach Galafianakis and Kristen Wiig in a crime drama formerly known as Loomis Fargo, currently untitled. I would have thought this is being changed due to parallels with Fargo and it isn’t clear if it’s a place or the main character’s handle. Either way, the “true” story follows an amateur heister who is betrayed by his fellows before plotting vengeance from Mexico. The actor will play an assassin, presumably a highly affable one based on his turn in Horrible Bosses (the sequel to which, inexplicably, is on the way).
Just as Wiig has been showing her serious side in The Skeleton Twins, so We’Re The Millers lead Sudeikis is getting a chance to broaden his horizons and by the looks of things director Jared Hess is »

Sometimes – even in Hollywood – fact is funnier than fiction. Thankfully, in the hands of talented filmmakers, such realities give rise to projects like Loomis Fargo (though the name may change) – which then attract incredible casts. With Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite) at the helm, this Relativity Media production boasts a script by Emily Spivey, Danny McBride, Jody Hill, Hubbel Palmer and Chris Bowman, and is based on a very real heist story.
The tale centres on a reserved man named David, who ekes out his existence driving an armoured truck full of cash every day. He engages in flirtatious banter with the object of his affection – colleague Kelly – and bides his time. Life is quiet and uneventful, until Kelly lures him into a heist scheme that would bag them $20 million. Doing the job, he finds the group hanging him out to dry – so David is soon on the run, and out for revenge. »

The true story tale follows four dim-witted Southerners who pulled off one of the biggest heists in American history, robbing almost $20 million from an armored truck. »

Almost eighteen months since Jim Carrey dropped out of the lead role in Loomis Fargo, Jared Hess is finally making some progress on his heist comedy. In addition to Zach Galafianakis replacing Carrey, we also had Owen Wilson and Kristen Wiig join the movie. Today comes word that Jason Sudeikis will join the project which will be getting a new title as well. Jason Sudeikis is best known for his tenure on Saturday Night Live as well as big screen outings in Hall Pass (with Owen Wilson), »

The Flickering Myth writing and editorial team give their thoughts on the trailer for Dumb and Dumber To….
It may be 20 years after the original, but Harry and Lloyd are back for Dumb and Dumber To, the trailer for which was released yesterday.
But what did our writing team think?
Ozzy Armstrong: I might be one of the few people born in the mid 80’s who didn’t enjoy the first film so a sequel seems completely redundant to me. Besides not liking the first Dumb and Dumber, I’m not a massive a fan of Jim Carrey either – so that probably doesn’t help.
As far as the trailer itself goes, I’m assuming that all of the “funny bits” were on show. This only makes me think that the end result will most likely be a big steaming unfunny turd of a picture. In short, I really couldn’t care less. »

After playing second banana on R-rated comedies like Hall Pass and Horrible Bosses, Saturday Night Live alum Jason Sudeikis proved his worth as a leading man in his own R-rated laffer, We're The Millers, which took the concept of a family road trip comedy and made it wild with strip teases, loads of drugs, and some male frontal nudity. Hot off the success of that $269 million hit, Sudeikis is saddling up for another crude comedy, and this one will be a raunchy rom-com. Variety reports out of Cannes that Sleeping With Other People has gained financing through Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, which will producing the pic alongside Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez banner. This will be the first film made under their new sister company, the Jessica Elbaum-led Gloria Sanchez Productions. Jason Sudeikis is confirmed to co-star in Sleeping With Other People with Community's Alison Brie »

Project Greenlight is coming back, folks. In the midst of the reality TV boom of the late 1990s/early 2000s, HBO got in on the fun with a filmmaker-centric reality show called Project Greenlight. The show offered an inside look at the filmmaking process, as a contest chose a director and writer to bring an original feature film to fruition. The brainchild of Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, the series ran from 2001-2003 on HBO and then for a third season on Bravo in 2005. After nearly a decade off the air, though, HBO, Affleck, and Damon are reviving the series for a new season. Hit the jump for more. Per THR, Affleck notes that Project Greenlight was ahead of its time, and they figured this was an opportune moment to bring it back “now that technology has caught up to the concept.” Indeed, the advent of digital filmmaking has made »

We’re all looking forward to this winter’s highly anticipated Dumb And Dumber To, the sequel to the class Farelly brothers camedy from the 1990s. The film sees our heroes, Lloyd and Harry, hit the road to find a child that Harry never knew he had. Both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels return for another adventure under the direction of Bobby and Peter Farelly. I’m just hoping we’re getting There’S Something About Mary Bobby and Peter Farelly, and not Hall Pass Bobby and Peter Farelly.
The film hits cinemas on the 19th December in the UK, and 14th November in the Us. Check out this newly released image from the film, featuring the two lead characters having a very odd shower.

Tumbledown, a romantic comedy starring Jason Sudeikis and Rebecca Hall, has begun principal photography in Devens, Massachusetts, it was announced by producers Kristin Hahn and Bron Studios' Aaron L. Gilbert and Margot Hand. Dianna Agron, Blythe Danner, Griffin Dunne, Joe Manganiello and Richard Masur also star. Tumbledown is directed by Sean Mewshaw from an original screenplay by Desi Van Til.
Deep in the Maine woods, Hannah (Hall) is unable to move on after the death of her husband, an acclaimed musician and the subject of a biography she's struggling to write, when she meets Andrew, a brash New York academic who has a different take on her husband's life - and death. The unlikely pair must collaborate to craft the famous singer's story and begin to write the next chapter in their lives together.
Jason Sudeikis has been pencilled in to step into the scruffy basketball sneakers of Irwin M Fletcher in Warner Bros’ Fletch Won. Based on the 1970s mystery novels of Gregory McDonald, the original Fletch saw Chevy Chase as an investigative reporter with a penchant for elaborate disguises, getting in over his head when an La businessman arranges to have himself murdered…by him. A big hit in 1985, Michael Ritchie’s film spawned a sequel four years later, Fletch Lives, in which Chase confronts murder, TV Evangelism and the Ku Klux Klan.
Since then, several attempts have been made to kick-start the franchise, notably by Kevin Smith who was announced as writer and director of Fletch Won for Miramax back in 2000. Now, Warners have given the green light to a new script that has attracted the attention of Jason Sudeikis. It is unknown at this stage if the film will be »

After a series of starts, stops, and restarts, it looks like Gregory McDonald’s character, I.M. Fletcher (“Fletch,” for short), will finally be heading back to the silver screen. McDonald introduced the investigative reporter to the world in 1974, and would go on to publish 12 books about the character. The character is best known to mainstream audiences through the two Chevy Chase films about him that came out in 1985 and 1989. The first Fletch is considered a classic, while Fletch Lives…not so much.
Hollywood, however, has been trying to bring Fletch back to theaters for quite some time. Over the years, many actors have been sought for the role- including Chevy Chase in an abandoned sequel, and Jason Lee (My Name is Earl), who would’ve starred in a series reboot written by Kevin Smith. Other notable names on the I Was Almost Fletch List are Ryan Reynolds, Zach Braff, »

Gabriel Luna (Bernie) has landed the lead role in the new action drama TV series, Matador. The series was created by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (Alias, Fringe) for Robert Rodriguez’s El Rey Network, and will also feature Nicky Whelan (Hall Pass) as the female lead.
The TV show will follow popular soccer star Antonio ‘Matador’ Bravo (played by Luna), using his successful sports career as a cover for his real role as a skilled CIA operative, expertly executing covert missions for an ultra-secret branch of the intelligence organization. Described as ‘a Latino take on James Bond,’ the show will boast a pilot directed by Robert Rodriguez, and is slated to begin production in Los Angeles in late March.
The El Rey Network, which is set to broadcast the show, was launched by Robert Rodriguez in December 2013 as an English language TV channel whose programming choices target Latino audiences in particular. »

Ron Burgundy takes on New York in the 2013 comedy Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
The followup to the original 2004 movie finds Will Ferrell’s (The Campaign) Burgundy relocating to New York to work for the first 24-hour news station. He’s back with his old crew, including Brick Tamland (Steve Carell, The Way, Way Back), Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd, Admission) and Champ Kind (David Koechner, Hit and Run), but also has some big competition in the good-looking and loud-mouthed Jack Lime (James Marsden, Straw Dogs).
