Jesse Tyler Ferguson In "Shorts," Bow Ties & That Silly 'Fiance' Word

9 October 2012 8:02 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Lily Tomlin and Jesse Tyler Ferguson as mother & son in the new film Stars In Shorts.

Think Jesse Tyler Ferguson has been around Hollywood long enough that the likes of working with the legendary Lily Tomlin wouldn’t get him excited?

Think again.

In the new film Stars In Shorts, which features stars like Kiera Knightly, Dame Judi Dench, Colin Firth, Sarah Paulson and Jennifer Morrison in a collection of short movies, Tomlin plays Ferguson’s mother in a short called “The Procession.” Written and directed by Robert Festinger, the film follows Tomlin and Ferguson as they share a ride in a funeral procession of someone they don’t know and, since the short is a comedy, things go a tad bit awry.

Ferguson not only gushed to AfterElton last week about working with Tomlin but he also shared how he really feels about the Emmys, his new foundation with fiancé Justin Mikita, »

Stars In Shorts – The Review

28 September 2012 4:51 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

If you go see Stars In Shorts expecting to see Colin Firth in casual cargos from Lands End or Julia Styles wearing skin-tight Daisy Dukes, you’ll be disappointed. They’re not that kind of shorts, but they are those kinds of stars, so if you go expecting to see great acting and fine filmmaking, you’ll be rewarded. On the heels of the annual Oscar Nominated Short Films program, ShortsHD presents Stars In Shorts, a collection of short films featuring some of the world’s biggest actors. Many times you only see these films at festivals so I highly recommend the opportunity to see these presented together on the big screen. There is no consistent thread to the seven films other than they star famous actors including some Oscar winners.

Stars in Shorts: Film Review

27 September 2012 7:21 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Stars in Shorts lives up to its title by presenting a gallery of well-known American and British actors in a compilation of seven short films. Not linked by any common theme or even mood, this anthology is, not surprisingly, a bit of a grab bag. But it nonetheless offers enough pleasures to make for rewarding viewing, especially when it can be consumed in smaller doses upon its impending iTunes and PPV releases. The collection is bookended by two amusing efforts: Robert Festinger’s The Procession, starring Lily Tomlin and Jesse Tyler Ferguson as a mother and son who get lost
