After the break, watch the red band trailer for I Love You Phillip Morris, the long-awaited (unless you’ve already seen it online, in Europe, or on a plane) film that has nothing to do with cigarettes and stars Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor as cellmates-turned-lovers. Warning: NSFW due to foul language, the sex scene we’ve already seen, and the tragic bottle-blondness of Ewan’s hair. READ FULL STORY

interview with the New York Times, Mitchell Hurwitz discussed the tricky task of building viewer support for his new series Running Wilde. Despite starring starring TV beloveds Will Arnett and Keri Russell, the Fox series failed to stoke any real critical love. In a wily hail mary, the man who created cult triumph Arrested Development said that perhaps he could parlay some of that enduring good will for his new series. Dangling the long-promised movie carrot in front of Arrested‘s diehard fans, Hurwitz joked “It’s like, Buy this magazine or we kill this dog. Watch this show or you don’t get an Arrested movie,” he told the reporter. “I really want to make this movie, I swear. Or, alternatively, don’t watch the show, and everyone send me a nickel. Those are the two choices.” READ FULL STORYIn an
Running Wilde has one of the worst titles and best pedigrees of the new TV season. Stars Will Arnett and Keri Russell play characters that seem tailor-made for them: Arnett’s hilariously venal Steve is like a single-child version of Gob, while Russell’s Emmy is an older, screwier Felicity. Adding to the good juju: Wilde is co-created by Arrested Development‘s Mitch Hurwitz. That’s enough to send expectations skyrocketing, but the Wilde pilot was reshot considerably. The show is pretty far from perfect — check out Ken Tucker’s review of Wilde and fellow gerund-titled Fox sitcom Raising Hope — but last night’s premiere was fast-paced and funny…and featured at least one character who deserves to be the Kenneth/Abed sitcom breakout of the year.
First, let’s get the bad stuff out of the way. Arnett’s character is probably a little bit too tailor-made for the actor: Arnett co-created the show and co-wrote last night’s episode, so whenever Russell’s not around, Running Wilde feels uncomfortably like The Michael Richards Show. READ FULL STORY
both told MTV they’d like to see her star in an AD film. “Anything to work with Jason,” Aniston gushed. Bateman claims to already have a role in mind for her, but insists there are no freebies and that “she’ll have to sing for her supper.” Let’s speculate…The Arrested Development movie — one of the year’s biggest will-they-or-won’t-they nail biters — could have a new Friend on its roster. (Okay, the “Friend” thing was a little cornball. You don’t mind.) During a junket for The Switch, Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston
Potential Jennifer Aniston characters in the ‘Arrested Development’ movie:
- Uncle Jack’s (Martin Short’)s new wife
- Ventriloquist love interest for G.O.B. (possible three- or four-way action including Franklin)
- the MILF George Michael hooks up with to make Maeby jealous READ FULL STORY
Hollywood Reporter, willowy Oscar winner Charlize Theron is also in talks to star in the dark comedy, Young Adult, which reportedly centers around a 30-something, newly singly YA author who returns to her hometown Minneapolis and pines after her ex, now a married family man. (And for the love of…let the story actually allow that Theron’s character is beautiful. She need not always be mousified, even if she is playing a writer.)Oscar-nominated director Jason Reitman (Up in the Air) is in talks to direct a script penned by his Juno partner, Oscar-winner Diablo Cody. According to the
Reitman and Cody have joined forces before, to memorable effect. The haters can snark over the zingy dialogue all they want. This moviegoer and adoptive parent thinks Juno was lovely and funny and surprising. And that scene of Jennifer Garner coming home to find a stunned Ellen Page and quaking Jason Bateman just up from the basement was a beaut. The YA team is looking to begin production mid-October.
Speaking of Jason Bateman, who makes my heart swell, he stopped by Cody’s Airstream trailer recently to have a little chat, including scoop on the Arrested Development movie. “Look at your f%#!ing notes cheater, go ahead.” Enjoy. READ FULL STORY
The Wedding Planner — I wanted her to be my awkward best friend helping me through my non-existent romantic comedy shenanigans. Then, she played best pal yet again in the Katherine Heigl rom-com 27 Dresses, but this time, she was a littler darker…and I liked her ever more: “I know my moral compass doesn’t exactly point due north, but if I say something’s wrong, something’s wrong.” And in 13 Going on 30, Greer played the bad-mouthing Lucy, a not-so-great friend to Jennifer Garner, but I still liked her. And let’s not forget crazy Kitty Sanchez from Arrested Development. Need I say more? (Most recently, I got my Greer fix when she tried to woo Phil Dunphy in Modern Family. Wonderfully funny.)I realize this headline might be a little misleading. I have never met or spoken to Judy Greer. Subsequently, she is not my real BFF. (That would be my friend Whitney. Hi, Whit!) But I feel like Judy’s at least in my close circle of friends. You know, close enough to be on a first name basis. I attribute most of this to her role as Penny in
So, today, on her birthday, I want to celebrate the fact that Greer, for once, will be given the opportunity to shine on her own, in the upcoming Mad Love. READ FULL STORY
As a long-time Arrested Development fan, I’ve ‘fessed up to being totally okay with it if they don’t end up making that movie. But it turns out I’m even more okay with a YouTube user named 205rady taking the time out of whatever he does all day (“Did…nothing cancel?”) to create this hilarious action movie trailer from scenes that already exist in the show. No new footage required. No more dizzies! Brilliance awaits after the jump. READ FULL STORY
