Netflix Orders Live Action Richie Rich Series

In: Donovan, TV Shows
richie-rich-comics

I’m a little ashamed I’m going to say this, but the second I discovered this, I shouted out in glee… inside of course ;) Richie Rich was one of my favorite comics to collect as a child.

The world’s richest kid is getting the Hollywood treatment once again. The classic cartoon character previously inspired two animated series and the live-action 1994 film starring Macaulay Culkin.

Netflix is altering the backstory a little for its adaptation. Richie Rich won’t be the son of a wealthy industrialist. Instead, he’ll be self-sufficient. As a result of inventing a “cool new green technology” he’s earned a trillion dollars. The show will follow his adventures with his friends as he “moves into a decked-out mansion and instantly starts living the most awesome life ever,” reads the press release. Check out the cast after the jump.

The 41-year-old entertainer recently revealed he passed on a role that would’ve seen his husband David Burtka and himself playing the slain gay couple in Murder House. Neil Patrick Harris will finally get his second chance to appear on American Horror Story.

It’s been confirmed that Harris and Burtka will guest star on Freak Show. Harris will pop up in the last two episodes as a chameleon salesman, while his better half will appear in the season finale. Burtka’s part hasn’t been revealed yet but it will involve Jessica Lange’s character.

This isn’t the first time NPH has appeared in a Ryan Murphy production. He popped up in Glee‘s first season finale. That role earned him an Emmy for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series. Will lightning strike again?

Neil and David aren’t the only ones recently announced to appear on Freak Show. Find out which Asylum alum is returning below.

ellen-degeneres-hottest-gardeners-auditions

If you’ve been watching The Ellen DeGeneres Show, you know the 56-year-old talk show host is on the search for a new gardener. Since Nick left to film Magic Mike XXL, her bushes have been out of control.

Since Nick’s stint as the show’s landscaper led him to a feature film role, naturally there has been a long line of buff boys praying to handle his gardening tools in hopes of getting their own big break. I’ve quickly sifted through the video submissions and picked out the hottest among the bunch.

Check them out below and share which one is your favorite. My picks are Jonathan Glancy, Antonio Stephen, David Kimmerle and Tyler Winder.

Who knew 13th century China could be so exciting and sexy for that matter? Netflix just unveiled the first trailer for their new series Marco Polo and it looks like it’ll be the streaming service’s next big hit.

Newcomer Lorenzo Richelmy plays the titular explorer. The series follows Polo on his adventures through Kublai Khan’s court. As the release states, we get a glimpse into Marco’s “greatest adventure of all.” Benedict Wong plays Chinese emperor in the 10-episode period original series. It promises to be a thrilling, violent and entertaining affair.

The entire first season will be available to binge watch starting at 12:01 a.m. PT on Friday, December 12 on Netflix. I’m definitely going to carve out some time to watch it during the hectic holiday season. Check out the trailer below.

“Sometimes the best man for the job…. is a woman.” How outdated and cheesy is that tagline? I suppose the retro mentality is fitting for the period-set Marvel’s Agent Carter. ABC unveiled the first teaser for it’s new Marvel offering during the most recent episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

“When old acquaintance Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) finds himself being framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons to anyone willing to pony up the cash, he contacts Peggy — the only person he can trust — to track down those responsible, dispose of the weapons and clear his name.” – ABC Description

The idea of committing to another television program from Marvel is a tad unappealing, especially given how disappointing S.H.I.E.L.D. has been. Thankfully, Agent Carter is only an eight-part miniseries. At least that’s what the alphabet network is saying. However, I’m sure if this is a ratings smash, network execs will figure out a way to bring it back.

Marvel’s Agent Carter premieres in January 2015 with Hayley Atwell reprising her role from Captain America: The First Avenger. The series takes place immediately following the events of that movie. Check out the first teaser trailer below.

jon-cryer-ashton-kutcher-kiss

Mark your calendars folks. On November 6, Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer walk down the aisle. After all these years, have both finally discovered that they’re gay? Nope!!! The duo tie the knot in hopes of adopting a baby. I suppose this is one way to bring 2 And A Half Men back to original premise of two grown men raising a boy. Full circle for the show’s last season.

“The first time I heard it I said, ‘What?!’” Cryer told E! Online. “And then I thought, ‘Oh yeah it kind of makes sense, because last season Alan’s wedding fell apart and Ashton’s wedding has fallen apart.’ The writers have a good idea and it opens up a lot of doors.”

“I thought it was both very funny and heartwarming that these guys would go to such great lengths to get a kid out of the foster system and give him a home,” creator Chuck Lorre explained. “Yes, there’s some subterfuge in doing that, they are gaming the system, but the intention is to give a child a home, and it brings the series back to being about two men teaching a young man to become a man.”

To seal the deal, Michael Bolton returns to the CBS sitcom to belt out another tune. Back when Ashton’s character proposed to his girlfriend, he enlisted the 61-year-old crooner to sing “When A Man Loves A Woman.” This time around, he tweaks the lyrics and belts out “When A Man Loves A Man” as a wedding gift to the ‘happy couple.’ Check out a couple of preview pics below from the episode including one of Ashton and Jon kissing.

After their Maya Rudolph variety show special experiment yielded solid ratings, NBC has decided to permanently resurrect the format. The network announced it ordered a new primetime variety series based on the hugely popular U.K. format Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway. Mr. song and dance himself, Neil Patrick Harris will host the variety show.

As I watched the show, I couldn’t stop smiling. Now that I’ve seen many seasons, my face hurts. It’s a game changer,” said Harris in a press release. “Nothing like this has been done before, and its unique structure fits right into my random skill set. I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves and have some fun!”

It’s no secret Neil Patrick was interested in starring in a variety show. He expressed his desire to do one when he revealed last year, he turned down hosting gigs for both of CBS’ late night talk shows.
