Diane Loses Everything In First Official Trailer For 'The Good Fight'
Huffington Post - about 1 month
The first official trailer for “The Good Fight” is here with a heavy dose of legal drama to fill the void left by its predecessor, “The Good Wife.”  The roughly two-minute spot follows Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) as she learns all her retirement savings have been lost as the result of a massive Ponzi scheme. Making matters worse, it seems her goddaughter Maia (Rose Leslie) might be connected to it.  If we know anything about Diane, though, it’s that she won’t go down without a fight. And based on the title of this show, that’s precisely what fans are going to get.   The 10-episode series will focus on Diane and Maia after they’ve been ousted from Lockhart & Lee and join forces with Lucca Quinn (”Good Wife” alum Cush Jumbo) at a new firm, according to Uproxx. Justin Bartha, Delroy Lindo and Erica Tazel are also part of the cast.  Since the series will air on the new CBS All Access digital platform, the writers were given a lot more freedom in te ...

Orange you sexy! At the Hollywood Stand Up to Cancer event on Jan. 28, Reese Witherspoon worked an orange Roland Mouret dress with a plunging neckline. The cleavage-baring style is a refreshing change for the mom of three, 37, who usually opts for a more conservative cut. The coral dress also featured white side panels to highlight Witherspoon's tiny waist. She finished the look metallic heels and Irene Neuwirth jewels. PHOTOS:Reese Witherspoon's on-trend look at the 2014 Golden Globes Witherspoon, who co-hosted the fundraiser with her husband of nearly three years, Jim Toth, kept her hair and makeup simple.

15 Minutes With Johnny Galecki
Huffington Post - over 3 years
I'm driving up Sunset Boulevard, heading to The Whiskey a Go Go to interview Johnny Galecki, star of the hugely popular CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory. With his portrayal of genius/physicist Leonard Hofstadter, Galecki delivers a beautifully layered character who is -- at once -- lovable, sympathetic and extremely funny. It's a tough balance to achieve in a sitcom character, yet they keep giving Emmys to Galecki's Big Bang Theory co-star Jim Parsons. As genius/nutcase Dr. Sheldon Cooper, Parsons' performance is off-the-charts, and certainly Emmy-worthy -- but why not spread around the love? I still can't understand why Steve Carell never won an Emmy for The Office. Okay. Now I'm getting off track. Back to Sunset Boulevard. I valet my car and begin surveying Galecki's acting credits, studying his wiki page on my iPhone. I remember him on ABC's iconic sitcom Roseanne, and as Chevy Chase's son in the holiday classic National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, a film that has special meanin ...

Trailer for 'Last Vegas': Familiar premise, different age bracket
LATimes - over 3 years
“The Hangover Part III” might have been a flop, but that doesn’t mean its premise won’t be recycled in other movies again. And again. As we find out in the just-released trailer for "Last Vegas," the twist this time is to age the film's cast by 30 years. Robert De Niro functions as the new Bradley Cooper, Michael Douglas the new Ed Helms, Kevin Kline the new Justin Bartha, and Morgan Freeman the new Zach Galifianakis (yes, that’s a lofty comparison) in the ensemble comedy coming out in November. PHOTOS: Summer Sneaks 2013 It’s another movie set to capture the attention of the aging baby boomers, following similar cues seen in films such as 2011’s “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” and even this summer’s “Red 2.” But, unarguably, “ Last Vegas” has a cast of talented actors that could make it a hit. The group of lifelong friends goes to Vegas for Billy’s (Douglas’) bachelor party. What looks to follow is an alcohol-fueled chain of events,  proving that Vegas will give you a h ...

Why Is Selena Gomez Hanging Out With Jaden Smith?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
We don't care how famous his father is, it's a little odd for a 20-year-old woman to be hanging out with a 14-year-old boy. And still, Selena Gomez (who turns 21 in July) and Jaden Smith were photographed after they dined together at Hakkasan in London on Thursday night. But the strange pair weren't the only celebrities who had a hankering for the Chinese restaurant it turned out. Bradley Cooper and his "Hangover 3" co-stars Justin Bartha, Ed Helms, and Ken Jeong were also spotted grabbing dinner, in addition to Will Smith, who was there with his "Fresh Prince of Bell Air" co-star Jeffrey A. Townes aka DJ Jazzy Jeff. We're not quite sure why Gomez was hanging out with her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber's best friend, but she defintely didn't seem happy to have her photo taken and shielded her face from the cameras as the two exited the restaurant. After dinner, Selena, Jaden, and his father all headed to Boujis nightclub to watch Will's son Trey DJ, but the 14-year ...

Annette Bourdeau: The Top 7 Reasons To See 'Hangover 3'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
They are back! They are baaaaack! They are ... the three best friends that anybody could have, the three best friends that anybody could have, and they'll never ever, ever ever leave each other. Yep, Stu, Phil and Alan are back on the big screen this week in The Hangover 3. More importantly, they're back where it all started -- Vegas. Part of the reason The Hangover 2 disappointed a tad (aside from the completely recycled plot, of course) was because it was missing its fourth co-star: Vegas. Sure, Bangkok is fun and all, but it wasn't part of the original Hangover magic. That's why Part 2 felt like it was missing something important, even though all of the key players -- even Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong) and Mike Tyson -- were there. This time around, the guys are chasing Chow in order to save their pal Doug (Justin Bartha), who has been very randomly kidnapped by a rich bad guy played by John Goodman and his head henchman, the other Doug (Mike Epps) from the first Han ...

Patrick Flanary: Scout's Honor? What Congress Could Learn From the BSA
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
With each step toward equality this month comes a setback: Days after the 12th state signed marriage equality into law, a gay man was targeted and shot to death in New York. After France legalized same-sex marriage over the weekend, a Georgian mob pelted activists with rocks. And this week, in a paradox that has mounted all year, the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America will vote to recommend including gay scouts while excluding gay adult leaders. The BSA's idea of progress is undermined by the organization's insistence on revoking a gay scout's membership on his 18th birthday. It suggests that he will prey on children the moment he enters adulthood. The ban on gay leaders, however, is not up for discussion at the council's annual meeting. Still, when the BSA mailed more than a million surveys to scouting families earlier this year, most young parents and teens disagreed with the policy. "Maintaining one form of discrimination while ending another is not good ...

THEY'RE BACK

The Wolfpack returns in "The Hangover Part III," which reunites stars Bradley Cooper (now an Oscar nominee, p.s.), Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis for the final entry in what has become a global franchise. ("The Hangover" and "The Hangover Part II" grossed over $1 billion worldwide.) Following a rash of teases, the new "Hangover 3" trailer gives some more focus to the film's plot: After the death of his father, Alan (Galifianakis) goes on a road trip with Phil, Stu and Doug (Cooper, Helms and Justin Bartha), when the group is ambushed by a crime boss (John Goodman) looking for Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong). Wackiness ensues, as do music cues from Kanye West and Wolfmother, jokes about cock fighting and a cameo from Melissa McCarthy. "It all ends tonight," says Cooper in a moment of resigned exhaustion. Indeed. "The Hangover Part III" is out in theaters on May 24. Watch the "Hangover 3" trailer above.

Bryan & David's 'Big Day'

"The New Normal" is staging an hourlong season finale on Tuesday, April 2 (9 p.m. ET on NBC), which sees Bryan (Andrew Rannells) and David (Justin Bartha) preparing for both their impending wedding and the birth of their son -- one of which requires an officiant and one of which requires a name. In HuffPost TV's exclusive clip above, we see the happy couple struggling with the logistics of wedding planning, adhering to tradition and the overbearing presence of Bryan's mother Colleen (guest star Mary Kay Place). Will they be able to have their big day their way? The "New Normal" finale's subject matter is particularly timely given the Supreme Court's current examination of the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and Prop 8. On April 1, a gay father and husband's touching open letter to the Supreme Court went viral, further illustrating how relevant "The New Normal's" storylines are to the lives and struggles of LGBT families.

Molly Fosco: Is This 'The New Normal' for Family Sitcoms?
Huffington Post - over 4 years
"Record Number of Gay Characters on TV," read a headline on the Onion last week. "4.4 percent of all scripted TV characters on the five major networks are either gay, bisexual, or transgender this season." While the Onion is an infamously satirical news publication, the information is quite true. There are in fact more gay characters on network television this fall than ever before. The New Normal, which premiered on NBC September 10th, stars Justin Bartha and Andrew Rannells as David and Bryan, a gay couple living in Los Angeles and expecting their first child via a surrogate, the young single mother Goldie Clemmons (Georgia King). The modernity of their situation is highlighted by Goldie's blatantly intolerant grandmother (Ellen Barkin) who often refers to the couple by using homophobic (albeit hilarious) slurs such as "salami smokers." As is accurately depicted in the show's title, there are many characteristics of a traditional situational comedy, but with a contem ...
