'Oh, Hello' Makes The Deeply Unfunny Funny
Huffington Post - 8 months
Basing a nearly two-hour play on a “bad joke” should lead to a boring disaster of diminishing returns.  But in the new Netflix special “Oh, Hello,” John Mulaney and Nick Kroll take one of those “bad jokes” a giant leap forward in order to explore something so intentionally awful, it’s exciting. Portraying a pair of older New York City gentlemen, Mulaney and Kroll spend the filmed play deconstructing a range of topics ― from theater to politics to fame ― only to use the same conventions they ridicule to fuel their own performance. One moment they might be making fun of an old writing trope featured in plays; another they’re using that same trope both for a laugh and to move the plot along. They found a way to have their cake and eat it, too. Or, in the case of their “bad joke,” have their tuna sandwich and, well, avoid eating it. In the New York Times review of the 2016 Broadway play filmed for this Netflix special, there’s a strange warning. “Just so you know: There a...

Ricky Martin Joins The Cast Of Versace-Focused 'American Crime Story'
Huffington Post - 11 months
Ricky Martin has just been cast in the third season of Ryan Murphy’s “American Crime Story” anthology series, which will focus on the assassination of fashion designer Gianni Versace.  Martin will play Antonio D’Amico, Versace’s longtime partner, according to Cinema Blend. The singer has worked with Murphy before, appearing on his musical high school TV show “Glee” as a sexy Spanish teacher.  The “She Bangs” singer joins the already impressive cast, which includes Édgar Rarmirez as Versace, Penélope Cruz as the designer’s sister Donatella and Darren Criss as the killer Andrew Cunanan. It’s been noted that Donatella isn’t a fan of D’Amico in real life, so it will be interesting to see how that plays into the storyline. (Maybe a “Feud” series with Cruz and Martin as Donatella and D’Amico should be next for Murphy?) But before we get to see Martin in his role, we need to make it through Season 2 ― the follow-up to “The People v. O.J. Simpson.” The second season...

Are You Living Your Divorce Or Living Your Life?
Huffington Post - 12 months
Something happened to me a few days ago that really made me think about the importance of living. When I say living, I mean capturing, enjoying and appreciating moments versus rushing through life like we all do. I mean Slow Down. Big. Time. And, this concept is especially important during your divorce. Here’s what happened to me. I began my day around 5:30am, drinking coffee and working, somewhat relaxed and peaceful. But, when 7am came around, it was time to start making lunches, getting the kids ready for school, doing dishes, cleaning the house, etc. It’s kind of like the gun goes off at that time and the race begins. After I dropped off the kids at their schools, I headed to the gym to squeeze in a quick workout. I also decided to drop off a check to someone there—figured I’d get that task off my list. While practically running into the workout room where my friend was, I ended up tripping over someone’s hand weights and falling in front of about 40 women who were about t...

Matthew Broderick Has His Donald Trump Impression Locked Down
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Matthew Broderick’s impression of Donald Trump is just yuuuuge. The actor poked fun at the president-elect on Friday after “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert asked whether he’d ever met his fellow native New Yorker. “I’ve walked by the building plenty,” said Broderick. “[But] I don’t think I’ve ever met him, I don’t think he’s ever come to a show that I was in, at all. “Usually if somebody likes that comes, you kinda know it, he comes back stage,” the “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” star added, before launching into an impromptu impression of how he’d imagine Trump thanking him after the show. Broderick later claimed it was the first time he’d attempted to send up the incoming POTUS. Check out the full interview above, and further footage from the show below: type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related Coverage + articlesList=5842759ae4b09e21702ed646,58413871e4b017f37fe402f7,584122ade4b0c68e048031bc,58296e98e4b0c4b63b0d4443 -...

'Rules Don't Apply' To Warren Beatty
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Rules Don't Apply is Warren Beatty's first major motion picture in 15 years, but definitely worth the wait. Warren Beatty's film debut in Elia Kazan's Splendor in the Grass, made him a star in his 20's. Now, his new film which opened Thanksgiving weekend, Rules Don't Apply, has shades of Splendor inside out. Both films deal with young love struggling with the strictures of strong religious upbringings.The difference is that in Splendor the guy doesn't get the girl at the end. Whereas in Rules, the guy does. But not telling which guy. You have to see the movie to find out. More Splendor comparisons. Singer Phil Collins daughter, Lilly Collins, is a Natalie Wood lookalike. Alden Ehrenreich comes across as a young Beatty. The two have great chemistry and Beatty, the director, is able to elicit strong performances from them both. Director Beatty, despite his reputed insistence on many takes, is often able to bring out the best in actors. Their performances in his ...

"Rules Don't Apply" Is Beatty's Folly
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Movie Review - Jackie K Cooper "Rules Don't Apply" (20th Century Fox) Warren Beatty hasn't been seen on screen since his 2001 film "Town & Country" and that was not a major hit. His star power has diminished a bit over the years and there is no reason to think his latest film "Rules Don't Apply" will bring back any of the old glitter. Mr. Beatty stars in this film and also was the director. Plus he was one of the writers of the screenplay and was a co-producer. In short Beatty huffed and puffed all over this project but the only thing it inflated was his ego. In the film Beatty plays Howard Hughes, a bizarre acting man if there ever was one. Alden Ehrenreich plays Frank Forbes, one of Hughes drivers, and Lily Collins plays Marla Mabrey, a starlet under contract to Hughes. It seems Hughes kept a stable of starlets under contract and ensconced them in bungalows around the city of Los Angeles. At various times they were summoned to meet with Hughes, usually in h...

Warren Beatty Feted at Museum of the Moving Image Gala
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Warren Beatty, Hollywood legend and famed boulevardier, starred in or directed and wrote the movies Splendor in the Grass, Bonnie and Clyde, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, Shampoo, Bulworth, and Reds, to name a few, so now that he has his first film in many years, the long awaited Rules Rules Don't Apply, it is fitting that the Museum of the Moving Image Image honor him. From this great night of speeches and clips this week, an observation beyond Carly Simon's "You're So Vain" was evident: eccentric, beyond the pale, this man is much beloved. Guests included Elaine May, Jeanne Berlin, Barry Diller, Mandy Patinkin, Lee Grant, Robert Benton, Barry Levinson, James Toback, Oliver Platt, and Michael Barker, some legendary figures themselves; many provided a piece of movie history in their accolades. Matthew Broderick with Sarah Jessica Parker, and Haley Bennett attended too. Paul Sorvino said he makes actors feel free and beautifully guided. The Rules Don't Apply stars Alden Ehrenreich and Li...
