Will Smith Quibi

Will Smith is heading to Quibi.

The soon-to-launch streaming service has secured yet another of the world’s biggest stars to headline one of its short-form shows designed to offer “quick bites” of entertainment to subscribers. Smith is on board to host and executive produce a series called This Joka, which unfortunately does not involve him explaining actor’s cinematic portrayals of the DC Comics character Joker. (Bummer – the episode reuniting him with Suicide Squad co-star Jared Leto would have been great). Instead, it’s a stand-up comedy series that will be shot on location at…Topgolf?

French Children Don't Throw Food

Hey, did you hear? French children don’t throw food! But you know who does? Anne Hathaway. Okay, I made that up – Ms. Hathaway may or may not throw food. But she is set to star French Children Don’t Throw Food, adapted from the book of the same name. The story follows a journalist who moves to Paris for her husband’s job, and then has to try to balance her family and career. And at some point, the journalist will probably ask, “Hey, do French children throw food?” And then someone will say “Non!” in a thick French accent. At least, that’s what would happen if I were making this movie.

the hail mary

Here’s something refreshing: actual movie news. As in, old-fashioned movie news about a new movie, and potential casting, that has nothing to do with coronavirus, or things being shut down. The last few weeks have been filled with seemingly nothing but corona-related stories, so when a traditional bit of film news pops up, we’re all pretty damn ecstatic around here. Having already played an astronaut in First Man, Ryan Gosling is deciding to give it another go with The Hail Mary, a new film based on a novel by The Martian writer Andy Weir.

tiger king movie

Netflix’s Tiger King is generating a ton of buzz lately, with viewers absolutely gobsmacked by the strange, wild, disturbing docuseries. The series takes us into the surprisingly lucrative (and altogether questionable) world of big cat collectors, focusing primarily on the eccentric Joe Exotic, a private zoo owner who was convicted of ordering a contract killing on an animal rights activist. But Joe is just our gateway into a whole world of unconventional, and in some cases downright loathsome, characters.

There’s already a Tiger King TV show in the works, featuring Kate McKinnon. But let’s go beyond that. Let’s assume that there’s going to be a Tiger King movie as well. Who would star? Who could possibly play this motley crew of weirdos? And who could direct it? I’ve taken the liberty of fan-casting the flick below.

Naturally, this post contains spoilers for the entire series.

Why Steve Carell Left The Office

Steve Carell was one of the biggest reasons for the success of The Office on NBC, thanks to his portrayal of the extremely inappropriate but loveable idiot Michael Scott, manager of his branch of the Dunder-Mifflin paper company. That’s why his departure in the seventh season of the series really took a toll on the show’s quality, and it never really recovered until near the end of the final season. It was thought Steve Carell was ready to move on to bigger things, but what if we told you he didn’t want to leave the show at all? Read More »
