‘Love, Gilda’ Review: Gilda Radner Gets the Last Laugh (And a Few Tears) in Intimate Documentary — Tribeca

‘Love, Gilda’ Review: Gilda Radner Gets the Last Laugh (And a Few Tears) in Intimate Documentary — Tribeca
God bless Gilda Radner for having the foresight to know that people wanted to know her. In Lisa D’Apolito’s intimate new documentary, it’s the late, beloved comedian and original “Saturday Night Live” breakout star who gets to tell her own story, aided by a treasure trove of diary-style audio tapes that serve as voiceover narration and reams of handwritten pages in which the woman behind such unique characters as Roseanne Roseannadanna and Emily Litella opens up about the good, the bad, and the ugly. By no means a vanity project — Radner’s diaries are as clear-eyed as anything when it comes to her struggles involving fame, relationships, and her health — “Love, Gilda” instead offers the kind of keen personal insight into its subject that few documentaries are able to pull off.

D’Apolito directed the film with the full support of Radner’s estate — when she introduced

Anthony Carrigan (HBO’s ‘Barry’) as henchman with a heart of gold steals scenes from ‘SNL’ veteran Bill Hader

Anthony Carrigan (HBO’s ‘Barry’) as henchman with a heart of gold steals scenes from ‘SNL’ veteran Bill Hader
One of the biggest scene-stealers for this TV season is Anthony Carrigan, who plays a mobster alongside “SNL” veteran and Emmy nominee Bill Hader in HBO’s buzz-worthy “Barry.” Audiences are already noticing his star-making turn as NoHo Hank, a bald, tattooed Chechen thug that also happens to be a polished henchman with a heart of gold.

If he is on the Emmy ballot this summer, voters love in the comedy supporting categories when a person is a flamboyant, over-the-top character. Just ask Tituss Burgess (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), Jeremy Piven (“Entourage”), Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother”) and Sean Hayes (“Will & Grace”), who were all Emmy nominated early on in their respective shows’ runs as standout comedic talents, often out-shining their lead actors.

Cinematographer Revealed for the It Sequel

They defeated It when they were kids, but the Losers' Club will have to face the ancient entity again as adults in It: Chapter Two, and following recent potential casting reveals for the sequel, a new cinematographer is reportedly on board for the anticipated film.

Collider reports that Checco Varese will be the cinematographer for It: Chapter Two. Chung-hoon Chung served as the director of photography on the first It film, but as Collider points out, director Andy Muschietti could be looking for a different visual style in the sequel, which will take place around 27 years after the 1989-set first film, with the Losers' Club inevitably returning to their hometown of Derry to face the return of It, aka Pennywise. This change in visual style is also reflected with The Shape of Water production designer Paul Austerberry coming on board for the It sequel (Claude Paré was the production designer

Film News: 2018 Tribeca Film Festival Opens with ‘Love, Gilda’

New York City – The 17th edition of the Tribeca Film Festival will open with a truly New York-centric celebration. Live from the Beacon Theatre on April 18th, 2018, will be “Love, Gilda.” This documentary on the life of “Saturday Night Live” (SNL) superstar Gilda Radner kicks off the two week festival, April 18th through April 29th.

“Love, Gilda” is directed and produced by Lisa D’Apolito. The film is an autobiography of a pioneering comedian, told in her own voice and through her own words. It weaves together audiotapes, rare home movies, diary entries, and interviews… both with those who were inspired by her – like Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and Cecily Strong – along with SNL originators Chevy Chase, Laraine Newman, Paul Shaffer, and producer/creator Lorne Michaels.

D’Arcy Carden (‘The Good Place’) on channeling ‘Teenager D’Arcy’ to play Janet in love [Exclusive Video Interview]

D’Arcy Carden is trying to avoid the “B” word. The actress and Ucb alum is starring on two critically acclaimed shows opposite some top-notch names to boot: NBC’s “The Good Place” with Ted Danson and Kristen Bell, and HBO’s “Barry” with Bill Hader and Henry Winkler. “I promise I would never say it, but I was blessed, because then I would be so annoying. But these two shows would be my favorite shows if I was just watching them on TV,” Carden tells Gold Derby in an exclusive video interview (watch above). She adds, “And the fact that I get to be a part of both of them kind of blows my mind. It’s too lucky, it’s too good. I’m really, really proud of both these shows and I kind of can’t believe it.”

It: Chapter Two Star Jessica Chastain Teases Her Fellow Loser James McAvoy

Just like X-Men: Dark Phoenix before it, Jessica Chastain has marked her decision to climb aboard It: Chapter Two with a cheeky social media post directed at James McAvoy.

First spotted by Dread Central, the actress, who officially clinched the role of Beverly Marsh late last week, took to Twitter to poke fun at McAvoy. He’s just entered negotiations to star as adult Bill Denbrough in the 2019 horror sequel, with Bill Hader said to be in the running for Richie Tozier.

No word on how Jessica Chastain feels about that potential casting coup, but the two-time Oscar nominee did share her thoughts on the possible addition of James McAvoy, with whom she previously shared the screen for The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. All three installments, in fact.

Jason Clarke in Talks to Lead Paramount’s ‘Pet Sematary’ Remake
Jason Clarke is in talks to play the lead role in Paramount’s upcoming remake of “Pet Sematary,” individuals with knowledge of the project have told TheWrap.

Based on one of Stephen King’s hit novels, “Pet Sematary” follows a doctor and his family who move out next to a pet cemetery in the countryside, only to discover that the cemetery brings back anyone or anything buried on its grounds in a malicious, decrepit state. Despite this, the doctor attempts to use it to resurrect his son after he’s killed in a car accident, to horrifying results.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who previously produced the adaptation of King’s “1408,” will produce with Mark Vahradian and Steven Schneider. The first “Pet Sematary” was released in 1989 and starred Dale Midkiff, Fred Gwynne and Denise Crosby. Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch will direct this version.

Clarke, whose past work includes “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” can currently be seen in theaters playing Ted Kennedy in the true-story drama “Chappaquiddick.” He will also appear in Damien Chazelle’s Neil Armstrong biopic “First Man” later this year. He is repped by Wme, Robert Stein Management and attorney Carlos Goodman.

Watch: Ben Stiller & Robert De Niro Reunite as Michael Cohen and Robert Mueller on ‘SNL’

Last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live was one of the best of the season, which is no surprise considering John Mulaney was the host. Mulaney cut his teeth as a writer on SNL for five years, working closely with folks like Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig, and Jason Sudeikis during his tenure and co-creating the character of Stefon. After SNL, Mulaney has found great success in stand-up, so his hosting duties last night were a really touching “coming home” of sorts for the hilarious performer. The episode was so good that even the politically tinged cold open …

John Mulaney on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See
Did the entire world set ablaze when it was announced John Mulaney would host Saturday Night Live? I'm guessing no. Did I do a jig? Possibly, but there's no video so no one can prove it. As the writer of Stefon and countless other SNL sketches, Mulaney helped shape some of the finest moments during his half-decade tenure on the show. While a writer, he made a few appearances on "Weekend Update," but those were essentially stand-up routines ported into that format. Aside from his performance as Shy a few

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Not-So-a-List Host John Mulaney Earns an A Grade

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Not-So-a-List Host John Mulaney Earns an A Grade
It’s easy to forget, but John Mulaney was never actually a ‘Saturday Night Live’ cast member. Yes, he’d make the occasional pop-in to Weekend Update as a correspondent — “Shut the door.” — and even starred on his own Lorne Michaels-produced sitcom (with former “SNL” cast members Nasim Pedrad and Martin Short) titled “Mulaney.” We try not to talk about that second part. But Mulaney was never even a featured player at any point. Instead, he was a writer for six seasons. That time ended in 2012, but not before he gave the “SNL” viewing audience such joys as Stefon (which he co-created with Bill Hader), “Family Flix: Rocket Dog” (more on that later), and “The Obama Show,” to name just a select few. He’s also performed on Broadway, no big deal.

Still, the same people who claim to be comedy experts seem to have no idea who John Mulaney is.

'SNL': John Mulaney Pokes Fun at Reboots, 'Real Housewives' Franchise in Hosting Gig

Comedian John Mulaney hosted NBC's Saturday Night Live this week, joined by musical guest Jack White. Mulaney was a writer on SNL for five years, exiting in 2012. During his tenure, he created fan-favorite characters like Bill Hader’s Stefon.

Spoofing Hollywood reboots, Mulaney played the creator of a fake old sitcom called Switcheroo getting the remake treatment. The premise of the series was that a dad and son switched bodies — and the show disturbingly “focused exclusively on the sexual ramifications” of the switch, according to Mulaney's show-creator character. He casually mentioned that the boy in the original was played by a young Andrew...

'It: Chapter Two' Casts Bill Hader and James McAvoy; Here's What We Know So Far

First the fans asked for Jessica Chastain, and they got her. Then they asked for Bill Hader, and now they've got him. Fans have been suggesting stars for It: Chapter Two ever since the release of It last fall (some have even made fake trailers to go with the suggestions), but that happens all the time with popular properties. Usually such picks go ignored.  Just to prove they're not completely taking advice from the masses, though, Warner Bros. is going with James McAvoy for the role of the adult version of Bill (the fans' choice has been Patrick Wilson). While still in early negotiations, he'd join the still-in-talks Hader as grown-up Richie, according to Variety, and Chastain as adult Beverly. Now the studio has four more grown members...
