By our maths, Adam Sandler now has one more film to go until he’s completed his deal with Netflix for four feature films. So far, we’ve had The Ridiculous Six (not very good) and The Do-Over (not very good). And for his third movie, Sandler has put together Sandy Wexler.

He’s not made this one alone. He’s reunited with The Do-Over director Steven Brill for a start, and he’s co-written the screenplay with Paul Sado and Dan Bulla. In terms of casting,, you’ll find Jennifer Hudson, »
Adam Sandler is back yet again with another Netflix original movie. Sandy Wexler is the third of four comedies that were part of his exclusive contact with the streaming service. And this might be the best one yet. Which, I'm sure, some of you will joke that it shouldn't be too hard to top The Ridiculous 6 or The Do-Over, but those have been some of Netflix's biggest original movies to date. Today, we get the first trailer for Sandy Wexler, and it's pure Sandler gold!
Sandy Wexler will do for the 90s what The Wedding Singer did for the 80s, bringing a shot of nostalgia straight to the veins of the Millennial generation. Though, Sandler let this one simmer a little bit longer. The Wedding Singer arrived in 1998, not even a decade after the 80s had passed, and not everyone was as nostalgic for the era as some teens »
Sandy Wexler is the latest Netflix original film from actor Adam Sandler and tells the story of the titular character: a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s who diligently represents a group of eccentric clients on the fringes of show business. His single-minded devotion is put to the test when he falls in love with his newest client, Courtney Clarke (Jennifer Hudson), a tremendously talented singer who he discovers at an amusement park.
Also starring Kevin James (True Memoirs of An International Assassin), Terry Crews (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Lamorne Morris (New Girl), Nick Swardson (The Do-Over), Rob Schneider, Jane Seymour, Carl Weathers and Arsenio Hall; Sandy Wexler is directed by Steve Brill (The Do-Over) from a script by Sandler himself. »

Jessica Biel is returning to the small screen. She’s set to topline “The Sinner,” an anthology series that USA Network just ordered to series, the La Times reports. The thriller marks Biel’s first gig as a series regular since she played Mary Camden on the WB/CW’s ensemble family drama “7th Heaven.” Since then, she’s made a career on the big screen and turned up for guest spots on “BoJack Horseman,” “Family Guy,” and most notably, “New Girl.”
“Based on Petra Hammesfahr’s bestselling book of the same name, the first installment of the close-ended crime thriller follows a young mother, played by Biel, who is overcome with a fit of rage and commits an act of violence that she can’t explain,” the source details. Bill Pullman (“The Equalizer”) costars, playing an investigator trying to determine the motive for the crime.
“There are always going to be the roles where you play the arm candy or girlfriend or wife; sometimes those are actually great parts, too, but I think it’s important to fight for the roles that really mean something to you, that say something,” Biel has said. “To tell stories that inspire you. You have to find those parts that are fewer and far between.” It sounds like “The Sinner” is going to offer Biel a solid, meaty — and meaningful — role.
Jessica Biel Anthology Thriller Gets Ordered to Series was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Can one scene or sequence make an entire episode of a show suddenly worthwhile? I never would have thought that the answer could be yes, but after watching the “sack waxing” scene in tonight’s New Girl, I might be wrong. There are just some scenes or sequences that are so ridiculously funny, so outrageously entertaining that they make the rest of the installment somehow better, and that scene with the guys at the spa certainly comes close to doing that for “Cece’s Boys,” which, overall, is a pretty mediocre episode of New Girl. In theory, “Cece’s Boys” should be a great episode

Six seasons in and the New Girl fanbase is still divided. The issue at the center of the storm? Whether or not Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) should be a couple or BFFs. Since the Fox hit sitcom began in 2011, Nick and Jess' relationship has seen a lot of ups and downs, inspiring a lot of debate among viewers, something star Jake Johnson knows all too well. At Fox's All-Star Party at the 2017 Winter TCA Press Tour, Johnson told E! News he's aware that the relationship has "fired up" the fanbase and teased that it will continue to do so.

Has anyone checked to make sure Zauberbiests aren’t part Teflon? Because, man, nothing sticks to Grimm‘s slippery Sean Renard.
Though the corrupt politician/police chief finds himself in a very bad way in this week’s episode — falsely accused of the murder of his campaign manager and sometime lover — he somehow ends the hour as a free man, striding confidently down the courthouse steps and calling for someone to bring him Nick Burkhardt.
Sure, there’s that pesky matter of his having disturbing visions about killing Meisner. »

It’s been a bumpy fall for Fox Broadcasting Co., with rave reviews but weak ratings for its newcomer “Pitch,” a string of unavoidable preemptions for tentpole “Empire” and challenges in bringing younger viewers to linear screens for live-action comedies. On the plus side, frosh drama “Lethal Weapon” has lived up to expectations, the network hosted a once-in-a-generation World Series and is looking forward to the Super Bowl on Feb. 5.
Dana Walden, who is Fox Television Group chairman-ceo alongside Gary Newman, spoke of the hurdles and opportunities faced so far this season in an interview Wednesday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Pasadena.
Walden stressed that Fox is gearing up for a super-charged second half that hopefully will restock the network’s drama bench. “24: Legacy” launches behind the Super Bowl and another high-octane drama, “Apb” bowing the following night. The provocative “Shots Fired” bows March 22 in tandem with the midseason return of “Empire.” And »
