Almost a year ago, we heard that Warner Bros. was developing a new movie based on the early adventures of Willy Wonka, the enigmatic chocolatier immortalized in the pages of Roald Dahl’s novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and memorably brought to life by the late Gene Wilder in a 1971 movie adaptation. But while movement on that project has been quiet, there’s another new Willy Wonka coming to town.
This November, Full House star John Stamos will star as Willy Wonka live in concert at the Hollywood Bowl, alongside Weird Al Yankovic as the Oompa Loompas (?!) and Stranger Things and It star Finn Wolfhard as Charlie Bucket.

For those who haven’t heard, last weekend saw The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California host an event called The Little Mermaid Live. The event rounded up some impressive singing talent from film and television along with a 71-piece orchestra to perform the Alan Menken‘s iconic music from Disney’s animated classic. Thankfully, since nearly everyone has a camera in their pocket now, we get to see some of the highlights from the show.
Renditions of The Little Mermaid songs from the show featured pop singer Sara Bareilles as Ariel, Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect) as Ursula, Darren Criss (Glee) as Prince Eric, Titus Burgess (The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) as Sebastian, and John Stamos as the frighteningly enthusiastic chef Louie. Plus, there was a special guest that fans of the original movie absolutely went crazy for. Find out who it was, and watch some of The Little Mermaid Live videos after the jump. Read More »

We’ve known since last summer that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen would not be making an appearance on Netflix’s Full House revival series Fuller House. The twins won’t even be making a cameo as the singular child Michelle Tanner, but the character’s absence is said to be explained by the fact that she’s now a fashion mogul in New York City. That’s a nice little nod to the Olsens’ real-life career, which has been cited as the reason for their not getting involved in the new series. Until now.
John Stamos recently appeared on The Howard Stern Show where conversation turned to Fuller House. The actor who plays Uncle Jesse revealed a more humble reason as to why they didn’t end up appearing on the show. Plus, he also reveals what could have been an interesting solution to their lack of involvement. Read More »
