Joel McHale to play Chevy Chase in Netflix movie

Posted on: April 6th, 2016 by Candy

Joel McHale is in final negotiations to portray Chevy Chase, with whom he starred on NBC’s Community, in Netflix’s tragic story of National Lampoon co-founder Douglas Kenney, A Futile and Stupid Gesture, 

 

Will Forte is starring as Kenney with Domnhall Gleeson as fellow co-founder Henry Beard in the feature being directed by David Wain, the co-creator of Wet Hot American Summer.

 

Kenney was the editor of the Harvard Lampoon when he met Henry Beard and Robert Hoffman, which, soon after graduation, resulted in the creation of National Lampoon, the humor magazine that became a major force and brand in 1970s comedy. Kenney ended up going Hollywood and succumbed to drug and alcohol issues before falling off a cliff in Hawaii under mysterious circumstances.

Kenney co-wrote Caddyshack, the 1980 comedy that was an early Chase hit, and the two were close friends. Chase was with his troubled pal in Hawaii before his death but returned to Los Angeles for work. He was set to fly back when he received word that Kenney was missing.

Stupid Gesture is eyeing an April start with a budget in the $15 million to $20 million range.

Peter Principato and Jonathan Stern are producing. Ed Helms is executive producing along with Michael Colton and John Aboud, who wrote the script. Ben Ormand, Ted Hamm and Sean McKittrick are also exec producing.

McHale starred with Chase for five of Community‘s six seasons. The actor-comedian, who continues to tour sold-out comedy shows across the U.S., is starring in the CBS pilot The Great Indoors, which shoots later this month. He also has his memoir, titled Thanks for the Money: How to Use My Life Story to Become the Best Joel McHale You Can Be, hitting shelves in November.

Food Network has new show based on yelp reviews

Posted on: April 5th, 2016 by Candy

 

The Food Network is teaming up with Yelp for a new show, according to Forbes, and it’s aptly entitled 12 Angry Yelpers. Forbes says it will use Yelp reviews to “help restaurants discover and fix their problems” and will focus on one restaurant per episode. The network hasn’t released any details yet, but an executive from its parent company told Eater that it will be hosted by MasterChef season three finalist Monti Carlo. We don’t know why restaurateurs would listen to Yelpers, but we’re guessing their most hilarious, entertaining and snarky reviews make for a better show than critics’ commentaries. We’re just hoping that none of them turn out to be fake.

New Sharknado gets the best title ever!

Posted on: April 4th, 2016 by Candy

Oh yes, it’s happening again.

Syfy has announced the premiere date for the fourth installment of the Sharknado franchise, Sharknado: The 4th Awakens — Get it? It’s a play on Star Wars — which will debut Sunday, July 31 at 8 p.m. ET.

The next Sharknado picks up five years after the events of Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!, as Fin (Ian Ziering), his family, and the world have been blissfully sharknado-free in the intervening years. But now both sharks and ‘nados are being whipped up in places and ways you’d least expect.

Tara Reid will reprise her role as April, revealing the character’s fate after fans voted to decide whether she lives or dies in the sequel.

The cast also includes David Hasselhoff, Ryan Newman, Gary Busey, Tommy Davidson, Imani Hakim, Cody Linley, Masiela Lusha and Cheryl Tiegs.

Syfy promises more cameos will be announced ahead of the Sharknado: The 4th Awakens premiere. Director Anthony C. Ferrante and screenwriter Thunder Levin return for the fourth film.

Posted on: March 31st, 2016 by Candy

Jonah Hill will step behind the camera to direct coming-of-age film “Mid ’90s” based on the script he penned.

Plot details are vague but sources say the film follows a young boy coming up in Los Angeles in the mid-1990s learning life lessons with his skateboarding crew of friends. Hill will not be acting in the film and a production start date is still being worked out.

The film will be produced by Scott Rudin and Eli Bush with their frequent collaborators A24.

The project marks another major step in Hill’s career; he’s gone from young comic to talented dramatic actor, having received Oscar nominations for his parts in “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “Moneyball.”

While he hasn’t directed before, this isn’t his first time penning a script having worked on “21 Jump Street”, his animated series “Allen Gregory” and worked on screenplays such as “The Adventurer’s Handbook. »

CNN)Australian actor Hugh Jackman may be known internationally for his roles as a superhero in the X-Men film series, but on Saturday he was doing some real life rescuing at Sydney’s Bondi Beach.

What will wii do about the new Zelda?

Posted on: March 23rd, 2016 by Candy

The life of the Wii U, Nintendo’s troubled home video game console, could be cut short. According to a report from Japanese newspaper Nikkei, Nintendo will cease production of the tablet/console hybrid in 2016. According to a statement provided to Japanese site IT Media, however, Nintendo says that the report is unofficial and that Wii U production will continue at least throughout the year

 

A 2016 end for the Wii U would align with the launch of Nintendo’s latest hardware, tentatively named Nintendo NX. Nintendo struggled to popularize the Wii U, which launched in 2012, a year before the Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One. The Wii U lacked the graphical capability, online functionality, and third-party software support of its competitors, while the Wii U tablet wasn’t as mobile or intuitive as Android or iOS devices.

 

Here’s the whole story:
http://www.theverge.com/2016/3/22/11285318/nintendo-wii-u-production-nx

 

According to Nintendo, the company has sold roughly 12.6 million Wii U’s worldwide, a diminutive number when set alongside the 36 million PlayStation 4s sold in a shorter window of time. By comparison, Nintendo sold over 100 million Nintendo Wiis between 2006 and 2013.

 

Not all news is bad news for Nintendo. Today, the company’s stock jumped after it found its first mobile hit in the newly released app, Miitomo. The app is currently at the top of Japan app store’s free download chart.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom-ing as a couple in public.

Posted on: March 22nd, 2016 by Candy

This comes to us from E!Online

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom weren’t afraid to get a little dirty over the weekend…

The couple was photographed packing on some PDA at the San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara on Sunday, looking more couple-y than ever.

An onlooker tells E! News they were spotted walking “hand in hand down the road” before they enjoyed some cocktails while sitting out on a grassy knoll. At one point, it appears Orlando decided to climb on top of Katy and go in for a passionate and steamy makeout session.

The super hot moment only puts a cherry on top of their blossoming romance.

In fact, sources recently told E! News they’re definitely official.

“Katy likes how down to earth Orlando is,” the insider explained to us earlier this month. “They seem to be getting serious and are an official couple. She calls him her boyfriend.”

Of course this is only made even more obvious with the amount of time they’ve been spending together recently. Most recently, the couple returned from a short trip to London, arriving back in Los Angeles on March 13 with beaming smiles.

Shortly before that, they enjoyed a Hawaiian vacation filled with lots of outdoor activities, which they followed up with a few nights together in New York City.

One evening they hit up the Polo Bar in Manhattan and an on-looker tells us, “It looked like Katy was very comfortable being her self in front of Orlando…They were sitting close to each other, [and] Orlando was a gentleman.”

Katy and Orlando were first rumored to be hooking up during the 2016 Golden Globes after getting cozy at a few parties together. They continued sparking romance rumors when they met up again at Stella McCartney‘s Autumn 2016 Presentation during fashion week followed by a fun night at Adele‘s concert in L.A.

The speculation turned into fact when E! News learned the “Roar” singer had taken a big step in being introduced to Orlando’s son, Flynn.

“Katy has met Flynn, and they get along wonderful,” another source told us in February. “She thinks he is so cute and such a well behaved kid! Katy would [also] like kids one day, and she is vocal about that.”

Will Orlando end up being her future baby daddy? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see how this romance pans out…

Comic actress Amy Schumer was a big tipper for a group of New York bartenders.

(CNN)Amy Schumer remembers when she struggled before she became a star, and that proved to be lucky for a group of bartenders.

The comedian reportedly left a $1,000 tip on a $77 bill Saturday for the bartenders at the hit Broadway show “Hamilton.”

“I was very touched, it was just something so generous and so kind that you don’t see every day,” Madeleine DeJohn, a bartender at the Richard Rodgers Theater in New York, told the New York Daily News.

Schumer was in the house taking in a performance with a group that included boyfriend Ben Hanisch.
