Tag: Jerry O'Connell (1-4 of 4)

Shia LaBeouf and Jerry O'Connell are #SORRY, and we have thoughts

First Shia LaBeouf was accused of plagiarizing his short film HowardCantour.com. Then he was accused of plagiarizing his apologies. Then he relentlessly tweeted the phrase “I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE,” before showing up to the Nymphomaniac premiere wearing a tux and a paper bag on his head that included that same phrase. THEN he wore that same tux and paper bag for a recent art installation, where people waited in line to come face-to-face with the actor.

What more is there to say about LaBeouf’s bizarre 2014? A lot, actually. The latest twist in the LaBeouf saga is a possible Funny or Die response from Jerry O’Connell, and when news broke of the stunt, it set off a firestorm in the EW.com chat room. So get ready to be a fly on our Facebook Wall as we replay the conversation below: READ FULL STORY

Step aside, Shia LaBeouf: Jerry O'Connell is sorry too, and he's got an art exhibit right next to yours!

Important life update: Shia LaBeouf is not famous anymore, and he’s sorry about it. Fun new twist: Jerry O’Connell hasn’t really been famous in years, and he’s sorry too. Take that, Shia!

In what is believed to be a Funny or Die stunt — O’Connell has a channel on the site — O’Connell has set up his own, competing art exhibit next to Shia LaBeouf’s #IAMSORRY space in L.A. O’Connell’s is appropriately titled #IAMSORRYTOO.

'We Are Men' premiere: We are watching a supercut of every rom-com ever

While watching the pilot of CBS’ new bro-vehicle We Are Men (which premieres Sept. 30, but is now online), I was struck with a sneaking sense of sitcom déjà vu. That’s because I’ve definitely seen this episode before — in the cumulative form of every romantic comedy ever.

We Are Men stars Christopher Nicholas Smith as Carter, a sweet and genuine twentysomething who gets jilted at the altar by his college love Sara (Fiona Gubelmann). His life now in shambles, he moves into a swanky temporary living apartment complex adjacent to Hollywood. There he meets three older dudes who are also now-single (Tony Shalhoub, Jerry O’Connell, and Kal Penn) and enjoying the complex’s amenities and plethora of women. (Where have I seen this before? Oh right, college.) Anyhoo, the crew convinces Carter that losing the love of his life is actually a good thing, with creepy Frank (played by an ill-fitting Shalhoub) saying: “You are a free man now. You can finally live. We are taking you under our wing.” Thus the fierce foursome go out for fast food, play doubles tennis, kvetch about their exes in the hot tub, lay out, and go out for cocktails to meet cute boys girls.

'Fifty Shades' of No: Actors who will NOT star in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'


Step one: Novel sells millions of copies. Step two: Novel gets optioned for adaptation into a feature film. Step three: Everyone in Hollywood and their third cousin tries to get a part in said film.

Unfortunately, producers of publishing behemoth Fifty Shades of Grey might have a little bit of trouble trying to cast some of the top young actors in Hollywood today. Due in theaters on Aug. 1, 2014, casting rumors upon casting rumors upon casting rumors have floated around, but with a quick interview or tweet, most of the rumors have gone kaput within a second. So maybe some actors don’t want to play the domineering Christian or the pure Ana, not even for the potential of well-paying sequels.

Let’s relive some of the dismissals that Fifty Shades has had to face thus far: READ FULL STORY
