Earlier today we saw the trailer for the Adam DeVine and Zac Efron summer comedy, Mike and David Need Wedding Dates. The trailer fell a bit flat, which is a shame, considering the actors involved, and the fact that it’s DeVine’s first starring role in a big summer comedy. The Workaholics star has appeared in some fun supporting roles over the years, but Mike and David Need Wedding Dates could potentially lead to him starring in more comedies.

Any fan of DeVine’s should be happy to learn that he’s already lined up another starring role for himself. The actor will reunite with The Final Girls director, Todd Strauss-Schulson, for Paternity Leave. Learn more about the project below.

Willem Dafoe

Justice League may be a DC Comics adaptation, but it’s going to star a whole lot of Marvel vets.

Now they’ve made room for one more Spider-Man alum: Willem Dafoe, who played the villainous Green Goblin in that universe but will get to be a good guy here.  Read More »
