During the special, “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah said if anything defined 2017, it’s been women.

The Opening Scene to the Ferris Bueller TV Show is Brutal and it also Has Jennifer Aniston

You might remember the actor Charlie Schlatter. He had an awesome 80s run in movies and hit his peak when he got a starring role in the film 18 Again alongside George Burns. Schlatter always had a baby face and at the age of 25 was selected to play Ferris Bueller in a TV series based on the 80s comedy starring Matthew Broderick. What you probably didn’t realize is that one of the stars on the show was also Jennifer Aniston. Even better? None other than Richard Riehle played principal Rooney. In case you aren’t placing Richard Riehle, he’s the

Watch: 7 Episodes From Short Lived 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High' Spinoff TV Series 'Fast Times'

Film-to-television show adaptations have been popular across genres for quite some time. Most recently, there’s been the success (and undue cancellation!) of “Hannibal” and the eerie A&E drama “Bates Motel.” Noah Hawley’s brilliant reimagining of “Fargo” for FX is perhaps the most prominent example of the practice and has already been renewed for a third season. Of course, there are certain television shows that spun-off popular films but didn’t pan out (looking at you, Jennifer Aniston in the short-lived tv version of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”), and we’ve found one in the lost episodes of “Fast Times,” a small-screen version of Amy Heckerling’s cult classic “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.” Read More: The 20 Greatest Musical Moments In The Films Of Cameron Crowe Famously penned by Cameron Crowe and which provided his entry into filmmaking, the script for the film was based on his

The Films That Should Be TV Shows

This week, Neil Calloway suggests some films that would work well as TV shows…

With the new series of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. now underway, the Limitless TV show having just debuted in the Us, and talk of a Game of Thrones movie being made (later denied). There’s even a TV show (the second, following a short-lived 1990 show) of the John Hughes/John Candy classic Uncle Buck coming soon. Add in the Minority Report TV show, and the just announced Lethal Weapon series and we have truly entered the age of the TV and film crossover.

The line between TV and film is growing smaller. The “small screen” is no longer seen as a step down from the cinema, largely because our TVs are no longer small, and people are watching what awful people call “content” in the same way – streaming it to their TV, laptop or tablet. Martin Scorsese,

‘Smosh: The Movie’: The Biggest Test Yet for Crossover Appeal of Digital Stars

‘Smosh: The Movie’: The Biggest Test Yet for Crossover Appeal of Digital Stars
Meet Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla — accidental international comedy superstars.

Ten years ago, the Internet-famous duo behind Smosh were teens hanging out in the Sacramento suburbs making funny videos and song parodies just for the hell of it, and sharing them with friends on this new site called YouTube.

Today, Smosh is a multimillion-dollar enterprise, counting more than 30 million subscribers across its six YouTube channels, and encompassing merchandise, comics and game apps. The guys are on the vanguard of a trend Hollywood is eyeing closely: They’re starring in “Smosh: The Movie,” a slapstick-y caper in which Hecox and Padilla teleport into different YouTubers’ channels in a quest to delete an embarrassing video of Anthony. The comedy is set for digital release July 24, after a red-carpet premiere in Los Angeles and fan screening in Anaheim, Calif., timed for the annual VidCon online-video confab.

20 Actors Who Played The Same Character as a Co-Star

Actors who are cast in a film together often posses a certain quality or look that make them suitable as co-stars. And in this world of sequels, prequels, remakes, and competing franchises, it can be those same characteristics that also make them fitting for the same roles. Here are ten sets of actors who had played, or ended up playing, the same character as their co-star - but in a different movie (with a couple of television series exceptions):

Vito Corleone - Robert De Niro, Marlon Brando

Marlon Brando and Robert De Niro both earned Oscars for their portrayals of Vito Corleone in Francis Ford Coppola's Godfather trilogy. Decades later, the two Vito Corleones starred together in the 2001 heist thriller The Score, which was directed by the voice of Yoda himself, Frank Oz — an offer they couldn't refuse, he must have made them.

Happy birthday, Jennifer Aniston!

The actress celebrates her 46th birthday Wednesday, so we're taking a trip back to 1990 when Et first sat down with then-21 year old star, who had just landed a supporting role as Jeannie in the short-lived TV adaptation of Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

“You had one day, and now you're just going to see the continuation of what this kid is all about and all the other things he gets himself mixed up in and it should be fun,” Aniston told Et of the role.

A Look at Jennifer Aniston’s Movie Career

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Jennifer Aniston, the Emmy, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominee, could land her first Oscar nomination for her role as a woman suffering from chronic pain after surviving a car crash in Daniel Barnz’s Cake. (It won’t be a contender in the musical or comedy category at the Golden Globes. The nominations will be announced Dec. 11.)

The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and received a standing ovation. Though the film has received mixed reviews, Aniston’s performance has been described as an ”honest, sturdy performance.” The Los Angeles Times’ Betsy Sharkey said that “it is a serious treat to see the actress stretch herself.”

Aniston embraced going sans makeup in the film (except for fake scars) and found freedom in it. At a press conference in Toronto, she said, “I loved every minute of it. It was extremely liberating to do that.

Transformation Tuesday: Jennifer Aniston

View Photo Gallery

Jennifer Aniston has been sporting iconic looks for two and a half decades, her first appearance in the spotlight beginning in 1990 with her run on the short-lived TV spin-off of Ferris Bueller. The fresh-faced Jen of the past has been on a steady evolution ever since, inspiring style copycats no matter what her haircut might be. Jen’s most iconic cut would come in 1995 when she chopped it into the iconic “Rachel,” which would then be copied a million times over. From there she has tried everything from twists to highlights, dark locks to a bob, and yet has always looked incredible and fresh. Somehow Jennifer has stayed true to herself and her easygoing style even while she changes up her hair game year after year. We can’t wait to see what she does next!

Ferris Bueller saws into Matthew Broderick cut-out in '90s sitcom

Ferris Bueller saws into Matthew Broderick cut-out in '90s sitcom
Some movies make for great TV shows: Friday Night Lights, Parenthood, and Fargo are just a few examples of recent, successful series that were born out of big-screen versions. Other movies do not—including Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Say Anything is latest subjected to the movie-to-tv transition, although it didn't last too long—after NBC announced plans for a half-hour comedy based on the 1989 movie, Say Anything director Cameron Crowe made his objections known and within 24 hours, the show was done.

Bill Hader’s List of 200 Essential Comedies Everyone Should See

Bill Hader has come a long way since his stint on Saturday Night Live, creating many popular characters and impersonations such as Stefon, Vincent Price and CNN’s Jack Cafferty. He is one of the highlights in such films as Adventureland, Knocked Up, Superbad and Pineapple Express, and so it is easy to see why author Mike Sacks interviewed him for his new book Poking A Dead Frog. In it, Hader talks about his career and he also lists 200 essential movies every comedy writer should see. Xo Jane recently published the list for those of us who haven’t had a chance to read the book yet. There are a ton of great recommendations and plenty I haven’t yet seen, but sadly my favourite comedy of all time isn’t mentioned. That would be Some Like It Hot. Still, it really is a great list with a mix of old and new.

The Strange Time ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ Became a Terrible TV Show

We’re still a few years away from being able to hop a quick flight into space (after our self-driving car parks itself in the terminal), but if you want to feel like you’re standing on another planet, you should watch the Ferris Bueller TV show. Created for NBC’s lineup in 1990, it’s an odd pop cultural artifact that plays like a window into an alternative universe that somehow exists in our own without melting all physical laws into shoe-ruining mud. In it, Charlie Schlatter is Ferris Bueller, Jennifer Aniston is his pissy sister Jeannie, and Richard Riehle (before he became rich inventing the Jump To Conclusions Mat) is the stuffy Principal Ed Rooney. The natural response is that these are impostors, that you’re somehow being tricked, and that instinctive mindset colors everything that the show does. It would probably be even stranger if the characters felt right while not looking right, but

During her stint on the 1990 TV adaption of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” Jennifer Aniston had a brief love affair with a co-star and GQ Editor-in-Chief Jim Nelson is spilling the details.

"To Aniston worshipers, I can offer little dirt," Nelson writes about the actress, who is now engaged to Justin Theroux. "She was lovely, kept to herself on the set, smoldering a bit like her outraged character, 17-year-old Jeannie Bueller. She was a brunette then, with none of Rachel Green's bob or self-possession.”

“GQ can exclusively report that everyone on set thought she was hot, including Schlatter, with whom she had a brief, torrid romance—while playing,

Jennifer Aniston was obviously irresistible long before she was one of Hollywood's best Friends. In what basically amounts to an aside in a new essay about his days as a writer's assistant on the TV-sitcom circuit, GQ editor-in-chief Jim Nelson reveals that Aniston had a fling with Charlie Schlatter, who played the titular truant in the short-lived small-screen version of Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The show lasted for one season between 1990 and 1991, and it sounds as if that hookup--when Aniston was barely 21—didn't last for nearly as long.
