Justin Timberlake was on colorful display Wednesday in Cannes at the Foresight Unlimited party for “Spinning Gold,” a biopic about the late music mogul Neil Bogart, which the singing-acting and now producing star is tubthumping on the Croisette.
Addressing the packed room from the stage at the Carlton Beach soiree, Timberlake, joined by Bogart’s son, writer-producer Tim Bogart, and Foresight chief Mark Damon, took the aud on a romp through the hits of the late Casablanca Records honcho that he’ll be portraying.
“I could have been a Pip!” joked Timberlake as he grooved to the music of Gladys Knight, along with the sounds of another soul legend, Bill Withers, and hits from “Queen of Disc Donna Summer, The Village People and rock gods Kiss, all part of the Bogart 70s hits machine.
“Spinning Gold” is slated for production in 2014 and Timberlake and associates met international distributors at a »

Fox has one of its better slates coming your way with the new season, especially if you take the midseason shows into account. Some of these shows may not jump out at you now as must-see, but some of them are going to take over, if I’m any judge anyway.
Clear showcase offerings Dads, Almost Human, and Us & Them are guaranteed to take off early. Almost Human has J.J. Abrams recognition to pull people in, though it looks to be a show that could flounder after a few episodes, even if I hope it doesn’t. The other two are going to become hits. Unfortunately, we have to wait until mid-season for the Gavin & Stacey remake.
Rake also looks like a winner, as long as the translation can be made to work as an Americanized product, and the show actually delivers what made the Australian original so brilliant.

We visit the Battle of the Year set in Whittier, California to speak with the cast and crew
Director Benson Lee's 2008 documentary Planet B-Boy proved that the art form of breakdancing is still alive and well today, decades after the popular dance craze started in the 1980s. The filmmaker returns to put a narrative spin on B-boying in the upcoming drama Battle of the Year, arriving in theaters September 13. Back in December 2011, I was invited to spend a day at the Whittier, California set to speak with the cast and crew of this dance-fueled drama. In case you missed it, clickHere to watch the second trailer that debuted last week.
During most movie set visits I attend, we spend the day watching scenes being shot and interviewing actors, writers, directors, producers, or whoever else is available. Due to some unfortunate scheduling complications, we didn't get to see a lot of shooting, »
The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the first announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on NBC.
The Peacock did not have a good year. Only one of its new shows, "Revolution," was a true hit. Another, "Chicago Fire," got renewed by the skin of its teeth whilst the fate of a third, "Hannibal," remains uncertain.
None of last year's new comedies survived, neither did two mid-season dramas, which leaves the network with some big holes to fill. Three dramas and three comedies will debut in the Fall ahead of three more dramas and two comedies mid-season. Two further dramas and a comedy are presently unscheduled.
Several other pilots didn't make the final cut and won't become series including the high-profile Charlize Theron-produced drama about the Hatfields and McCoys, the Bruckheimer-produced »

Blacklist – Fall
The Blacklist — (Photo by: NBC)
For decades, ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader) has been one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as “The Concierge of Crime.”

The "Office" alum and longtime "Boston Legal" star returns to the spotlight on the Peacock network and this time, instead of upholding the law (albeit via blackmail, bribery and the like), he's breaking it. In NBC's upcoming series "The Blacklist," Spader stars as Raymond “Red” Reddington, the most wanted man in the world.
Check out Spader and his devilish ways below in NBC's new four-minute trailer for "The Blacklist", as well as two new preview clips, and scroll down for more previews and official descriptions of the new series on NBC's 2013-2014 schedule: the “Ironside" remake starring Blair Underwood, the new Mike O'Malley comedy "Welcome To The Family," Sean Hayes' return to sitcoms with "Sean Saves The World," and, of course, the highly-anticipated "Michael J. Fox Show."

Chicago – When you’re in as much of a ratings struggle as NBC, it makes sense to shake things up and that’s exactly what they’re doing in the Fall with a new show or an old show in a new time every single night of the week. “Chicago Fire,” “Revolution,” “The Biggest Loser,” “Parks and Recreation,” and “Parenthood” are moving. “Community” is being held until a midseason, 13-episode run. No decision yet made on “Celebrity Apprentice” or “Hannibal,” which isn’t that surprising as they are mid-season shows anyway although it shouldn’t give fans of either program confidence as NBC announced a midseason schedule as well and they’re not on it. Anything could still happen with either program however and they could be held as replacements for shows that fail. That may be the best shot for “Hannibal” fans now. The best new show on the »

Emmy® and Grammy Award®-winning Renaissance man Justin Timberlake (The Social Network, Inside Llewyn Davis) will take on the lead role of the famous 1970s record icon Neil Bogart.

The magazine joked, ”If you were to bury a time capsule so that future generations would know what life was like back in the early-ish 21st century, you wouldn’t go far wrong with an iPhone, a can of Monster Energy drink and a photo of Mila Kunis.”
To celebrate Mila (and her beauty on the inside and out), here’s a quick reminder why she’s so much more than just a pretty face.

Disney returns to Oz with a prequel this time in Oz the Great and Powerful.
Based on author Frank L. Baum’s classic children’s stories, the fantasy movie imagines how the illusionist Oz might have made it to the magical land.
Screenwriters Mitchell Kapner (The Whole Nine Yards) and David Lindsay-Abaire (Rise of the Gaurdians) start their story with Oscar Diggs (James Franco, Rise of the Planet of the Apes), a.k.a. the small-time circus magician Oz the Great and Powerful. He’s more con artist than magician, and when his dubious ethics push him into a hot air balloon to avoid a beating, Oz gets whisked away from dusty Kansas to a magical land.
In Oz, Diggs discovers that there’s a prophecy that »

There's plenty of Zoe Kazan to go around, petite though the actress may be. There's enough of her, in fact, to play two roles — three, depending on who you ask — in "The Pretty One," which premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. Kazan pulls a Lohan, playing both halves of a set of identical twins, then the role of Sister A pretending to be Sister B after Sister B dies and Sister A is mistaken for her. (It's complicated.)
While buzz for "The Pretty One" is just beginning, Kazan is no stranger to critical praise: Just last year, she turned in a phenomenal lead performance opposite real-life boyfriend Paul Dano in "Ruby Sparks," which she also happened to write.
