Monica Potter Talks Parenthood's Goodbye: We Have "Many, Many Thoughts About Spinoffs"

17 hours ago | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's the eve of Parenthood's last season - a fact Monica Potter, who plays Kristina Braverman, still hasn't quite accepted. The cast and crew were just about a week into shooting the final episodes of the NBC drama when I stopped by the set. Monica took a seat next to me on the couch in the Bravermans' house after wrapping a scene, settling in as comfortably as she might in her own living room. "I have hope that we'll come back next year," the actor says. "And I'm the only ding-dong walking around saying that. I just . . . I don't know." It's not hard to understand why Monica feels a little reluctant to let go. After more than four years as Kristina, she's seen her character through her teen daughter's coming out, a run for mayor, and even breast cancer; that storyline eerily corresponded to Monica's own irregular mammogram in »

Stars Come Out for NBC’s Fall TV Bash

17 September 2014 9:13 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Stars, executives and press braved the sweltering Los Angeles heat on Tuesday evening to toast NBC’s new television season, taking refuge in the air-conditioned wood and glass hideaway of Hollywood’s Hyde.

The atmosphere was cheery but comfortably low-key, fitting for a network in the midst of an enviable resurgence, having just emerged as the number one broadcaster for the entire year in the 18-49 demo for the first time since 2004.

NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt and entertainment president Jennifer Salke happily hobnobbed with press and talent all night, while guests nibbled on assorted tacos, risotto and croquettes. “Hannibal” showrunner Bryan Fuller was spotted chatting with “Constantine” executive producer David Goyer, while the young cast members of “Parenthood” and “About a Boy” hung out all night, even visiting the party’s gif booth.

Dax Shepard Will Flash His Anus While Acting If That’s What It Takes

5 September 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Dax Shepard is pulling double duty at the Toronto Film Festival this year: He co-stars alongside Robert Downey Jr. in the opening-night film The Judge, and he's also got a role in Shawn Levy's star-studded dramedy This Is Where I Leave You, opening later in the festival. The really remarkable thing, Shepard told us last night at the after-party for The Judge, is that he shot both of those roles at the same time while also juggling his day-to-day duties on Parenthood and trying to squeeze in a cameo in the Veronica Mars movie for wife Kristen Bell. "Scheduling it is all luck," he admitted. "The Veronica Mars thing, that was me saying, 'Yes, honey, I'll be in your movie — assuming that the plane lands in time and the driver can get me to downtown L.A.'"Now, though, Shepard can relax and enjoy the fruits of his labors, »

Dax Shepard to Write, Direct and Star in CHiPS Remake With Michael Pena

3 September 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Warner Bros. have turned to Dax Shepard to write, direct and star in a big screen version of CHiPS, the popular TV series which ran from the late 70s/early 80s. Shepard is perhaps best know for starring in Parenthood. The original series focused on two motorcycle highway patrolmen in California.

Shepard is set to take on Larry Wilcox’s role as Officer Jon Baker. Michael Pena (who will be seen in Ant-Man next year) meanwhile will play Frank “Ponch” Poncherello, the role made famous by Erik Estrada.

There has been talk of turning CHiPS to the big screen for a number of years now, with one recent pitch (which would have seen That ’70s Show star Wilmer Valderrama play Ponch) failing to ever get off the ground. While both actors are well known for comedic roles, this new take on CHiPS is said to be far closer in tone »

Dax Shepard to Write, Direct & Star in Big Screen 'CHiPS' Adaptation

3 September 2014 8:43 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Plenty of TV shows from the past have gotten big screen updates from "The Brady Bunch" to "Bewitched" and "Stasky & Hutch" to "The Dukes of Hazzard." But those were all years ago, so it seems a little weird to get news from Deadline that Warner Bros. has hired "Parenthood" and This Is Where I Leave You star Dax Shepard to write, direct and star in a big screen adaptation of the TV series CHiPS, which ran from 1977-1983, following a couple of officers (played by Erik Estrada and Larry Wilcox) who patrolled the highways of California in their super tight khaki uniforms with their snazzy police motorcycles. More below! Shepard will take the role of Officer Jon Baker (the role played by Wilcox) while Michael Pena has landed the role of Frank “Ponch” Poncherello (Estrada's most famous role). The studio tried years ago to turn CHiPS into a film with »

Dax Shepard to write, direct and star in CHiPs movie remake

3 September 2014 5:24 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Dax Shepard is to write, direct and star in a big-screen revival of CHiPs for Warner Bros.

The action-comedy aired on NBC from 1977 to 1983, and centred around two motorcycle cops of the California Highway Patrol.

Parenthood star Shepard is to play Officer Jon Baker, the part played by Larry Wilcox in the original TV series, according to Deadline.

American Hustle star Michael Pena is also lined up to play his partner Frank "Ponch" Poncherello.

Shepard, who races motorcycles in his own time, is expected to perform his own stunts in the reboot.

A spokesperson for Shepard and wife Kristen Bell revealed earlier this year that the couple are expecting a second child. »
