Listen: Scott Foley on How ‘Growing Pains,’ Alan Thicke and ‘Boner’ Inspired His TV Career
Scott Foley isn’t afraid to admit his love for late 1980s family sitcom “Growing Pains.” “I watched everything about that show,” he told Variety’s “My Favorite Episode” podcast. “From the ‘Entertainment Tonight’ backstage clips where Kirk Cameron got a Honda Prelude — I mean, I remember what kind of car he got. I was a big fan of it. I had a crush on Tracey Gold. I still now will read the People magazine articles on these actors.”

Foley said “Growing Pains” was more than a sitcom to him — it was the dawn of his realization that he could act, on television, for a living. “It was one of the shows that I think I realized, ‘hey I can do that.’ I was at the age where I was starting to form ideas on what my future would be. I loved that time in television. We don’t really have that now.

Jonah Hill has earned two Academy Award nominations, but what he really wants to do is direct. (And rap.) The actor has done just that in collaboration with Danny Brown, whose “Ain’t It Funny” video Hill helmed. Watch below.

Filmed in the style of a bizarre, would-be wholesome sitcom reminiscent of a much darker “Full House,” the video stars Gus Van Sant and Joanna Kerns alongside Brown himself as Uncle Danny, the patriarch of a family that isn’t as PG as the Tanners. Hill’s enthusiasm for rap should be well known by anyone who saw him perform a few lines of “Jumpman” on “SNL” and/or play “Connect 4” with Kanye West.

Danny Brown Gets Wild & Weird In Jonah Hill Directed “Ain’t It Funny” Featuring Gus Van Sant

Jonah Hill will soon mount his feature directorial debut “Mid ’90s,” but the aspiring filmmaker has already cut his teeth in the music video realm, getting behind the camera for Sara Bareilles‘ “Gonna Get Over You.” However, he really takes it up a notch with “Ain’t It Funny” for out there rapper Danny Brown.

Featuring “Growing Pains” Mom Joanna Kerns and Gus Van Sant (who Hill is currently working with on “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot“), the clever concept imagines Danny Brown as a troubled, sad sack, and potentially dangerous comic relief in an ’80s style sitcom.

When Maureen Stapleton Became Our Grandmother Forever

35 years ago, the actress sang the body electric.

The handful of actresses I associate with motherhood include ’80s movie and TV staples Dee Wallace, Teri Garr, Melinda Dillon, Joanna Kerns, Judith Light, and Meredith Baxter. They were the ones that comforted me when I was a kid. But when it comes to images of grandmothers, only one woman comes to mind: Maureen Stapleton.

On January 17, 1982, Stapleton was only 55 years old. She had three Academy Award nominations under her belt and was about to receive her fourth. She would win that Oscar for Best Supporting Actress at the end of March for her performance as Emma Goldman in Reds. But on this particular night, she was on television in the title role of The Electric Grandmother.

The Emmy-nominated NBC special, part of the network’s Peacock Theatre, was co-written by Ray Bradbury based on his 1962 Twilight Zone episode “I Sing the Body Electric,” the
