While the idea of turning the beloved animated Bambi into a live-action film seems absolutely ridiculous, it’s actually not that far-fetched. At Disney’s current pace of producing live-action versions of their classics, this could become a reality in a few years. Though, it’ll have a hard time living up to this epic Saturday Night Live treatment.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson transforms everyone’s favorite deer into a gun-slinging bad ass vigilante. Along with his furry friends, he bursts into a hunting lodge and open fires on hunters who kill for sport.
Cecily Strong plays Michelle Rodriguez, while Jay Pharoah and Taran Killam imitate Tyrese Gibson and Vin Diesel in the hilarious sketch. Find out which furry characters they play below.
When NBC first announced it was resurrecting Heroes for a 13-episode miniseries, many were hopeful that some of the original cast members would return. Jack Coleman who played Noah Bennet was the sole OG alum attached to Heroes Reborn. That is until now… A fan favorite just booked a guest-starring arc on the event series. Find out who below.
Out of all the sitcoms to resurrect from the 1990s, this one comes out of left field. Even more surprising is the fact, the original series ran on ABC initially. NBC, though, somehow got their peacock claws on Coach and convinced Craig T. Nelson to reprise his role. The network announced it’s ordered 13 episodes.
Coach aired on ABC from 1989-1997 and was a Top 20 hit show for the first six seasons. The revival will “pick up 18 years later and find his character Hayden Fox interrupting his retirement to become assistant coach to his own grown son, who is the new head coach at an Ivy League school in Pennsylvania that is just starting up a new team.”
It’s not known if any of the other original cast members are returning. Hopefully, a couple of them make special cameos.
This revival comes off the heels of another 90s classic being resurrected. FOX renewed The X Files for a six-episode event earlier this week. What show from the 90s will be resuscitated next? Weigh in below.
I’ve been known to sing along with my favorite divas on long road trips. There’s nothing that passes the time on the road than belting out ballads from the likes of Mariah, Whitney and Celine to name a few. This is pretty much my dream come true. That James Corden is one lucky bloke.
Mariah Carey made an appearance on The Late Late Show during Corden’s first week hosting the late night staple. The ‘elusive chanteuse’ sang some of her memorable hits including “Always Be My Baby,” “Fantasy,” “Vision of Love” and “Thirsty” while James commuted to work.
Even though Carey’s voice isn’t at its peak form, it’s still pretty stellar. Check out the fun clip below.
April 11 ya’ll. Mark your calendars now!!! This is no April Fools joke. Cookie effing Lyons is heading to Saturday Night Live. Words can’t even describe my excitement. Taraji P. Henson is going to slay it during her hosting debut.
Even though the long-running late night staple already aired an Empire spoof during Chris Hemsworth’s episode, I expect another sketch based on the FOX hip-hop drama to come. Fingers crossed, they poke fun at Cookie slammin down Boo Boo Kitty on the pool table.
NBC also revealed that Michael Keaton is also hosting. The Birdman actor will appear on the April 4 show, marking his third time presiding over Studio 8H. Find out which musical act is on board for each episode below.
Brace yourselves folks. Downton Abbey will close its doors after Season Six. PBS and producer Carnival Films announced the heartbreaking news Thursday.
“The ‘Downton’ journey has been amazing for everyone aboard. People ask if we knew what was going to happen when we started to make the first series and the answer is that, of course we had no idea. Exactly why the series had such an impact and reached so many people around the world, all nationalities, all ages, all types, I cannot begin to explain. But I do know how grateful we are to have been allowed this unique experience. I suspect the show will always be a principal marker in most of our careers as we set out from here, and if so, I consider that a blessing and a compliment.” – Julian Fellowes, writer and creator
The period drama is PBS’ most popular series of all time. During it’s run, it’s amassed 51 Emmy nominations so far and winning 11. Not to mention numerous Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards, BAFTAs and so on.
I’m curious exactly what caused the production company to pull the trigger? Was it production costs? The drama’s stars wanting to move on? Or some other crazy reason? Clearly, it’s not the ratings because it’s a juggernaut in that area.
It wasn’t the most engaging and exciting show, but I looked forward to my weekly fill of Jonathan Groff and his Castro crew. Sadly, HBO decided not to renew the gay dramedy for a third season. Given its very anemic ratings, this doesn’t come as a huge surprise. However, I was still hoping the underdog series could pull the horseshoe out of its proverbial ass.
There is a silver lining to this sad news though. The network announced a Looking movie to wrap up the storylines. Thank God!. I want to Dom (Murray Bartlett) to have his happy ending and for Patrick (Groff) to finally choose between Kevin (Russell Tovey) and Richie (Raul Castillo). Team Richie over here!!! As far as Agustin (Frankie J. Alvarez), I couldn’t care less. His character is beyond unlikeable.
Check out HBO’s statement below, along with showrunner Michael Lannan’s tweet regarding the follow-up movie.
It’s two Jennifers for the price of one. Jennifer Hudson and former Sugarland frontwoman Jennifer Nettles duet on “You Will.” The empowering ballad was written by Diane Warren and will be the new official anthem for the OWN network.
“I was so touched when Diane Warren came to me and said she wrote a song with OWN in mind,” said Oprah Winfrey. “And then to have Jennifer Hudson and Jennifer Nettles bring the song to life with their stunning collaboration… what a gift.”
Though very different genres, country and R&B artists have often time teamed up for some wicked collaborations in the past. This one is just the latest. Though Hudson steals the show a bit, their vocals complement each other. “You Will” will no doubt do well on adult contemporary stations due to its message and Oprah’s legions of loyal fans. Give it a listen below.
