• Kate Hudson (Something Borrowed) is set to join Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here. The story follows 35-year-old husband, father, and struggling actor Aiden Bloom (Braff), who decides to home school his kids when his father (Homeland’s Mandy Patinkin, playing another Saul) has to stop funding their private education. Hudson will play the part of Braff’s wife. Braff famously funded this project through a Kickstarter campaign that actually still has three days left. At the time of posting, the project had raised over $690K beyond its goal of $2 million. The film also stars Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect »

Despite some misinformation about the funding coming together for Zach Braff's film Wish I Was Here, following a very successful Kickstarter campaign, it sounds like the Garden State director has his head on straight, and there hasn't really been any deception to those who so graciously helped Braff get his project off the ground. And so the film marches onward with a couple new casting additions. First, The Wrap reports that the lovely Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect, 50/50) has landed a supporting role and Deadline pegs Kate Hudson for a role alongside Braff, who is leading the film in addition to writing and directing. For those who don't know yet, the film follows Braff as Aidan, a struggling actor trying to support his wife and and kid as he's still trying to figure out his identity and purpose in life. Aidan only gets through the days fantasizing about being the »

We can't get enough of Rebel Wilson. Here's why.
She's not afraid to take fashion risks.
Her family is way cooler than yours; her parents are professional dog showers, and her siblings' names are Liberty, Ryot and Annachi.
When she has a "wardrobe malfunction," it's for comedic purposes.
She can rap Salt-n-Pepa's "Shoop" better than anyone (even Pepa said so).
She stole every scene in "Pitch Perfect."
She's not afraid of Pda.
She strips down to a light-up bra in the preview for her new show "Super Fun Night" (body image, be damned).
After attending the 2013 White House Correspondents' Dinner, Wilson said she told members of Congress that she was the "Princess of Australia" ... and some fell for it.
In her MTV Movie Awards acceptance speech for winning Breakthrough Performance, she coined the term "Australian kiss" ("It's like a French kiss but down under," she explained). »

The apocalypse is coming to theaters and on VOD on June 7, 2013. Only this time, Craig Robinson, Anna Kendrick, John Francis Daley, Rob Corddry, Paul Scheer, and many more are along for the ride. Check out the new trailer and poster for Rapture-palooza.
Nowhere is safe from the effects of the Rapture in Rapture-palooza, a new end of the world comedy from Lionsgate.
When the Apocalypse actually happens and a billion people are raptured up to heaven, Lindsey (Anna Kendrick, Pitch Perfect) and her boyfriend Ben (John Francis Daley, TV’s “Bones”) are left behind in suburban Seattle. The young couple tries their best to lead a normal life surrounded by talking locusts, blood rain showers and pot-smoking wraiths. But when The Beast (Craig Robinson, TV’s “The Office”) makes his home base in their neighborhood, Lindsey finds herself the object of his affection. With the help of her family, friends »

Finally, after two separate red-band trailers, an official piece of artwork for Paul Middleditch’s horror comedy Rapture-Palooza has arrived, and given the subject matter, it's painfully generic! Look for the flick from Lionsgate in limited theaters and on VOD platforms June 7th.
The film is best described as Zombieland meets The Big Lebowski, and in the flick a couple battle their way through a religious apocalypse on a mission to defeat the Antichrist.

What is Casting Couch? It’s the news column that’s got its ear to the ground, listening for any juicy tidbits coming out of Cannes. Today people like Uma Thurman, Seann William Scott, Amanda Seyfried, and Bruce Willis all got new jobs. Zach Braff hasn’t yet had much of a career as a film director, but if there’s one thing he’s got more experience shooting than most people, it’s tiny girls wearing giant headphones. So chances are Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick will be a perfect fit for the cast of his new movie, Wish I Was Here. The Wrap is reporting that she’s just joined the film in the role of Janine, a chick who’s into cosplay and who the Josh Gad character becomes enamored with. However you feel about the controversy surrounding Braff’s Kickstarter funding of this film, you have to admit, added »

It comes with the tagline: "A comedy about knowing when to say when."
Drinking Buddies stars Kate (Wilde) and Luke (Johnson) as co-workers at a brewery, who share a 'will-they-won't-they' friendship.
While having a particular chemistry together, they are also both in a relationship. Kate is seeing Chris (Livingston), while Luke is dating Jill (Kendrick).
Luke is not ready to commit to a serious relationship, and soon finds himself spending an intimate weekend with Kate.
The comedy reportedly included many improvised scenes amongst the cast, and debuted at SXSW. It will be released at Us cinemas on August 23. »
Damn it. Just when we thought we were going to be able to ignore Zach Braff's controversially crowd-sourced sophomore feature, he goes and casts Anna Kendrick. According to The Wrap, the "Pitch Perfect" star, so often the best thing in whatever she's in, has joined the cast of Braff's currently-prepping "Wish I Was Here." The actress will play the love interest of Braff's character's brother (Josh Gad), a young cosplayer named Janine. Manic Pixie Dream Girl alert! Mandy Patinkin is also in the cast (Mandy Patinkin Dream Girl alert!), and Kendrick will next be seen in the questionable-looking "Rapturepalooza," which opens on June 7th. Someone else we're a big fan of is British director Eran Creevy, who made an ace debut a few years back with "Shifty," and followed it up earlier this year with homegrown actioner "Welcome To The Punch." We've been tipping the filmmaker, who was one »

Upfronts, the Christmas Eve of Us television, are upon us. This is a sort of annual television cattle market, where networks show advertisers their wares for the upcoming autumn season in the hope of getting them to buy ad time "up front". Handily for us TV fans who aren't in charge of a whopping great ad budget, the networks also stick trailers for the majority of their new output online. Here are six of the most promising.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – ABC
Key personnel: Joss Whedon (executive producer)
Joss Whedon's return to the small screen after the monster success of Avengers Assemble will be another dip into Marvel mythology. This time, the Buffy creator tackles agency S.H.I.E.L.D., who are responsible »

Chloë Moretz, Jaden Smith and Patrick Schwarzenegger were feted as the biggest and brightest stars of young Hollywood on Tuesday night. The stars of Glee, Pitch Perfect, Big Time Rush, and more partied poolside at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood for the release of Nylon's young Hollywood issue. The evening began with an intimate dinner at the Public Kitchen inside the historic hotel where cover girl Moretz arrived with a gaggle of friends ready to celebrate. She and her pals filled up on appetizers of meatballs, burrata cheese and kale but only nibbled on their entrees, choosing to spend time standing and chatting instead. »

The red-band trailer for Paul Middleditch’s horror comedy Rapture-Palooza has arrived, and we have every sin-laden second of it right here for ya! Look for the flick from Lionsgate in limited theaters and on VOD platforms June 7th.
The film is best described as Zombieland meets The Big Lebowski, and that alone has us all over this bad boy. In the flick a couple battle their way through a religious apocalypse on a mission to defeat the Antichrist. Yep, we are so there.

Maybe Olivia Pope needs to do some damage control for ABC, which brought back only two of the 10 shows it premiered last season. At the network’s upfront presentation on Tuesday, Kerry Washington appeared in a pre-taped clip as her character from Scandal, and offered advice to Anne Sweeney, the president of Disney/ABC Television Group, alongside Jimmy Kimmel. Discussing the problem of Dancing With the Stars, which took a ratings dip this season, Kimmel quipped, “For one thing, they’re not really stars.” There aren’t a ton of stars in ABC’s new lineup, either — but there are »

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the third announced earlier today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on ABC.
The network is changing up some of its serialized dramas - removing random repeats in favor of two "uninterrupted runs" of twelve episodes each (one in the fall, one in the spring) for shows like "Once Upon A Time," "Grey’s Anatomy," "Scandal" and "Revenge". The large gaps between the two half-seasons will be bridged by "limited series" designed around only 12-13 episode seasons.
Several other pilots didn't make the final cut and won't be seen including the high-profile "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" rip-off "Gothica", McG's rip-off of Baz Luhrmann's "Romeo + Juliet" entitled "Westside", the series based on Disneyland's Big Thunder Mountain ride, the Annie Potts-led "Murder in Manhattan" about »

Rebel Wilson deserves better. The "Pitch Perfect" star's new ABC comedy series "Super Fun Night" may sound like a winning proposition on paper - three nerdy girlfriends with no social lives break out of their shells and go on a series of night-life misadventures - but, at least judging from the first trailer released today, the execution leaves something to be desired. For starters, seemingly every lame joke to be made at the expense of Wilson's weight has been tapped here, from "Rebel Wilson rips skirt while executing a high-kick at the office" to "Rebel Wilson dances in form-fitting white cocktail »

ABC's comedy development has had a rough couple of seasons. The network hasn't had a real breakout since the one-two punch of family comedies "Modern Family" (an ongoing mega hit) and "The Middle" (a modest but stable hit) premiered back in 2009.
Only three comedies launched since then remain on the air: "Suburgatory," which faded enough in Season 2 to be held back for midseason next year; "Last Man Standing," which plays to a base and is otherwise ignored on Friday nights; and "The Neighbors," which will join "Last Man" in its Friday irrelevance in the fall. That means ABC needs to find a few more real players and the network has planned an aggressive launch of four new comedies in the fall and one more on the bench for midseason.

Not all women are perfect. Some lack perfect bodies. Many are awkward. Most don't have a clue about what to do when faced with hot guys and night clubs. "Super Fun Night," the new ABC comedy starring Rebel Wilson ("Pitch Perfect," "Bridesmaids"), is about those women.
Wilson plays Kimmie Boublier, a young lawyer who has spent every Friday night staying in with her best friends, Helen-Alice and Marika (Liza Lapira and Lauren Ash). That all changes when the handsome and British Richard Lovell (Kevin Bishop) invites Kimmie along for a night out. Since it's a Friday night, all of the girls go out for a great night on the town.
It doesn't turn out so great, a fact that is clearly shown in the trailer for the new pilot. Instead, the awkward women descend into a chaos filled with light-up clothing, baring imperfect bodies and a whole lot of yelling. »
“Cutting Edge Originals is about great stories that will depend on great music,” said Ceg topper Philip Moross. “This model was perfected by the late Robert Stigwood with ‘Saturday Night Fever’ and ‘Grease,’ and we’re aiming just as high.”
It handles scoring, clearances and music supervision in a film, then recoups from soundtrack and sheet-music sales; licensing and royalties from international ticket sales and TV deals; and rights in TV commercials.
Earlier this year, Ceg raised $100 million in equity as part »

Rebel Wilson, who recently appeared in "Pitch Perfect," is the star and a co-executive producer of this new sitcom. In the series, she plays a junior attorney who has spent every Friday night for the past 13 years at home with her two best friends. In order to get ahead in her career (and maybe personal life too) she learns from a mentor that she has to get out and network. Will she be able to bring her friends along for the ride and what will happen if she does? These questions and more will be answered on the sitcom. Conan O'Brien, »
