Posted on: January 18th, 2017 by ABC News No Comments

Crackle(NEW YORK) — Jerry Seinfeld is making Netflix his new comedy home.

Seinfeld’s Emmy-nominated series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, which originally ran on Sony’s streaming service, Crackle, will debut 24 new episodes on Netflix starting in late 2017, Netflix announced Tuesday. Fifty-eight older episodes of the streaming series, which features Seinfeld sharing stories with friends while cruising around in a classic car and sharing a cup of coffee, will also become available at the same time.

As part of the multi-faceted deal, Seinfeld will also shoot two, all-new stand-up shows exclusively for Netflix, the first of which will arrive later this year. Additionally, he’ll help develop scripted and non-scripted comedy programming for Netflix, with other elements of the deal to be announced later.

“We are incredibly proud to welcome him to the Netflix comedy family,” Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said of Seinfeld, in a statement announcing the deal.

For his part, Seinfeld said, “When I first started thinking about Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, the entire Netflix business model consisted of mailing out DVDs in envelopes.”  He added, I am really quite charged up to be moving there.”

Ryan Reynolds Promises "F***ing Crazy Reaction Video" in Costume if "Deadpool" Snags a Best Picture Oscar Nomination

Posted on: January 17th, 2017 by ABC News No Comments

20th Century Fox – 2015(LOS ANGELES) — In a wide-ranging interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Ryan Reynolds talked about his career ups and downs, including his most recent “up” – his unlikely smash movie Deadpool.  And Reynolds says that if the movie ends up snagging a Best Picture nod at the Oscars next week — which could happen — he’ll reward fans with something special.

“I can certainly promise one f***ing crazy reaction video online. In the Deadpool suit. Guaranteed,” Reynolds laughs. 

After 11 years of development, Reynolds recounts how he was able to get the movie off the ground, with co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and director Tim Miller.  As Reynolds explained, he felt that Deadpool was dead in the water after he starred in yet another superhero movie, Green Lantern.

“I thought, ‘If Green Lantern is a huge hit, they’re never gonna accept me as both,” Reynolds said of Deadpool rights owners 20th Century Fox. “…and if Green Lantern is a huge failure — which it ended up being — they’re never going to hire me.'”

But Reynolds revealed that one big bonus of the flop film is gave him a chance to work with Reese and Wernick on the script that became Deadpool  “in a house that was being paid for by Green Lantern‘s dime.” 

“I look back — and hindsight is obviously 20/20 — but it knew what it was, and I always knew what it was,” Reynolds said of Deadpool.  The movie went on to earn more than $780 million on a budget of less than $60 million.

“I knew exactly how to play this guy, and I felt, in some weird way…like I was born to play this guy.”

The movie has so far earned nominations for the Directors Guild of America, the Writers Guild of America, and the Golden Globes, to name a few.

Margot Robbie Has Transformed into Controversial Skater Tonya Harding

Posted on: January 17th, 2017 by ABC News No Comments

ABC/Lou Rocco(NEW YORK) — Australian actress Margot Robbie transformed into the crazy comic bombshell Harley Quinn last year for Suicide Squad, but now she’s taking a different turn for a biopic she’s currently filming. 

Photos have popped up from the set of  “I, Tonya,” which is set for release next year, according to IMDB. It’s about disgraced skating champion Tonya Harding and in the photo, Robbie appears to be wearing a body suit and facial prosthetics to resemble Harding. 

The movie reportedly focuses on Harding’s success at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, and her subsequent downfall after a plot to put her rival Nancy Kerrigan out of commission unraveled in 1994. Both skaters then went to the Olympics, where Kerrigan rebounded and went on to win the silver medal. Harding finished eighth.

In real life, Tonya’s ex-husband Jeff Gillooly hired a man to attack Kerrigan and break her leg. Her leg was only bruised, but she was forced to pull out of the Championship nonetheless; Harding later won.  Gillooly ended up taking a plea deal for his involvement in the attack that led to a two-year stint in prison, while Harding took a separate plea deal for obstruction of justice that resulted in no prison time.

In the movie, Captain America series star Sebastian Stan plays Gillooly.

Steve Harvey Apologizes for Suggesting Asian Men are Unattractive

Posted on: January 17th, 2017 by ABC News No Comments

ABC/Adam Taylor(NEW YORK) — Steve Harvey is apologizing to fans for his recent comments suggesting Asian men are unattractive.

Harvey caused a social media firestorm last week when he joked that women were not interested in dating Asian men. Now, the comedian-host has taken to twitter to apologize for his insensitive remarks.

“I offer my humblest apology for offending anyone, particularly those in the Asian community, last week,” Harvey wrote. “It was not my intention and the humor was not meant with any malice or disrespect whatsoever.”  Today is also Harvey’s 60th birthday.

Harvey’s apology comes after Eddie Huang, whose autobiography Fresh Off the Boat inspired the TV show of the same name, wrote an essay in the New York Times addressing Harvey’s comments. In a letter entitled, “Hey, Steve Harvey, Who Says I Might Not Steal Your Girl?” the actor explains how the media has continued to marginalize Asian men.

“There were times I thoroughly believed that no one wanted anything to do with me,” Huang wrote. “I told myself that it was all a lie, but the structural emasculation of Asian men in all forms of media became a self-fulfilling prophecy that produced an actual abhorrence to Asian men in the real world.”

Reese Witherspoon Says "It’s a Good Time" to Do Third "Legally Blonde" Movie

Posted on: January 17th, 2017 by ABC News No Comments

Hilary Bronwyn Gayle/HBO(LOS ANGELES) — The world could use a little Elle Woods right about now.  At least, that’s what Reese Witherspoon said about bringing back one of her most beloved characters for a third Legally Blonde movie.

“I do think it’s a good time to do it,” she told E! News at the Elle Women in Television dinner. “I think women need that kind of positivity right now.”

Witherspoon said her team has mulled it over, but adds, “I need somebody really clever to come up with a great idea and we’ll do it.”

Asked about what she’s thinks is ahead for women under a Trump administration, Witherspoon focused on the positive.

“It’s a great privilege to be a woman in America,” she said. “We have many rights and freedoms that a lot of women don’t have all over the world. I try to celebrate that. I try to live that to its utmost, particularly the freedom of speech, being able to express myself, create shows like this to show how important women are in our world. That’s what I try to focus on.”

Witherspoon was referring to her newest show, the HBO series Big Little Lies, which she produced and stars in alongside Nicole Kidman, Zoe Kravitz, Shailene Woodley and Laura Dern.  It’s about three mothers of young children whose seemingly-perfect lives crumble around them.

“I think diving deeply into issues that affect women so profoundly, it’s not just a sort of desired mission statement,” Witherspoon told E! News. “It’s sort of a mandate in my life. Women are much more complex than what we’re seeing on screen and I feel it’s important to see how women behave with each other. And I think that’s a unique thing about this show. It’s how women really speak to each other about issues that really affect them.”

Big Little Lies premieres on Feb. 19.

Nia Long Dishes on the Upcoming "Beaches" Remake and Working with Co-Star Idina Menzel

Posted on: January 17th, 2017 by ABC News No Comments

Lifetime/Eike Schroter(NEW YORK) — Actress Nia Long said that remaking the classic 1988 film Beaches was “very intimidating” while discussing her role in the upcoming Lifetime TV movie in an interview with Good Morning America anchor Lara Spencer that aired today.

“I grew up watching the film,” Long said. “I’m such a huge fan of Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey. They’re powerful women. They’re iconic.”

In the remake, Long plays Hillary, a lawyer who puts her career on hold when she gets married. The role was made famous by Hershey in 1988. Long stars alongside Idina Menzel, who will play the role of C.C., originally played by Midler in the 1988 original.

“When this opportunity came along, I was very nervous,” Long said. “But Lifetime has such a way of celebrating women.”

Long said that in many ways the new film is different from the original.

“Obviously, I’m an African-American woman,” Long said, adding that there were things about her character that she wanted to play, “a little closer to home.”

Long said that making the movie was “so emotional.”

“I think everybody knows the ending to Beaches,” Long said, “which makes it tricky.”

The actress called her co-star Menzel as “amazing” and “strong.”

“I fell in love with her when she was doing Wicked,” Long said, referring to Menzel’s role in the popular Broadway musical. “I remember going to see ‘Wicked,’ and I was like ‘Who is this girl?'”

Menzel will perform her own version of the 1990 Grammy Award-winning song, “Wind Beneath My Wings,” for the upcoming movie, and Long told GMA how exciting it was to be able to sing with the Broadway star.

“There’s a part in the film where we sing, and I’m like, ‘I can’t believe I’m singing with her,'” Long said. “She’s like, ‘No, you have a really good voice,’ but my voice is really teeny tiny.

“I made my voice smaller,” Long added with a laugh, “because I wanted her voice to be the one that everyone hears.”

Lifetime TV’s version of Beaches will air on Saturday.
