“Mom”

We haven’t seen the last of Christy and Bonnie Plunkett. The mother-daughter duo are set to return for a sixth season on “Mom,” The Hollywood reporter confirms. Anna Farris and recent Oscar winner Allison Janney topline the CBS sitcom, which recently wrapped filming on its fifth season.

Farris plays Christy, a single mom who moves to Napa, California to start over with her two children. Still working on addressing her past of drug and alcohol abuse, she lands a job as a waitress and attends Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Bonnie, who is portrayed by Janney, is also a recovering addict. Janney’s taken home two Emmy Awards for her role on the series, which just celebrated its 100th episode.

“‘Mom’ has been a linchpin comedy for us over the last several years,” CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl said Sunday in a statement. “It’s a fearless series that tackles

McCullah’s comedy credits include “10 Things I Hate About You,” “Ella Enchanted,” “She’s the Man,” “The House Bunny,” and “The Ugly Truth.” She also did uncredited work on last year’s hit “Girls Trip.”

Anna Faris is the latest star to come forward about her experience with sexual harassment.

The “Mom” actress revealed on her “Unqualified” podcast that an unnamed director slapped her butt on the set of a movie she filmed early in her career.

Faris said she didn’t know how to react in the moment so she made light of the situation to mitigate the impact.

“I remember looking around and I remember seeing the crew members being like, ‘Wait, what are you going to do about that? That seemed weird.’ And that’s how I dismissed it. I was like, ‘Well, this isn’t a thing. Like, it’s not

Jared Leto Will Star in Brett Ratner's Hugh Hefner Movie

  • Movies.com
Hugh Hefner, who passed away last week, had a huge influence on movies. There's the work he did in film preservation, helping to restore prints of The Big Sleep and Pandora's Box. There's the pop cultural presence his publication had in such movies as Apocalypse Now and of course The House Bunny. And he's been a figure worth portraying on screen, from James Franco's brief role in Lovelace to Cliff Roberton's performance in Star 80 and even Stan Lee's cameo in Iron Man.  Now Hefner is going to finally get a proper biopic of his own. Brett Ratner, who has been trying to get the project made for at least a decade, has announced Jared Leto will star as the iconic Playboy mogul. Quoted by...

Kurt Russell's Entire Life Has Been Leading Up to 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'

Kurt Russell's Entire Life Has Been Leading Up to 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'
"And who the hell are you?" Peter Quill asks the bearded stranger descending from the spaceship.

"I'm your dad, Peter."

In the final seconds of the latest Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer, a major piece of the puzzle regarding Quill's true parentage was put into place: Kurt Russell plays Star-Lord's long-lost father, Ego the Living Planet, a character teased in the first movie as "something very ancient we've never seen here before." Any other particulars about Ego, though, are rumor, gossip, or well-intentioned but misguided excitement.

"I was doing publicity for Hateful Eight and suddenly, people started saying, 'Is it true? Are you going to play Peter Quill’s father?'" Russell recalls during a visit to Guardians' Atlanta, Georgia, set last year. "I'm like, 'I don’t know what you’re talking about.' I just wasn’t aware of it. And for the first time, this was a character, obviously, that people
