Late Late Show host James Corden is headed to the big screen. Corden has signed on for a roll in the upcoming installment of the heist franchise, Ocean’s 8. The new film features all-female lead cast of heroes including Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, Cate Blanchett and Sandra Bullock.
Obviously, Corden isn’t joining the gang on their New York adventure. According to Vulture, he plays an insurance investigator who catches wind of the of the shenanigans. Wisecracking hilarity ensues.
The wait will soon be over. A new season of Arrested Development will start production soon according to the show’s executive producer Brian Grazer. And, unlike the polarizing fourth season, this one will feature the entire cast filming at the same time—meaning no more weirdly segmented episodes and time-hopping plot lines.
Grazer explained to The Wrap
I think we’re really close to pulling it off finally. All of the actors have agreed to do it and I think they’ve agreed to their compensation structure. That’s been the hardest — it’s all hard… But it should be happening soon.
We’ll let Tobias express our feelings about the announcement:
Rogue One star Felicity Jones is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, and as this promo shows, she’s already getting ready by testing some material on a bunch of storm troopers. As you’d expect, they’re kind of a tough crowd.
The upcoming season of the Breaking Bad prequel series Better Call Saul may feature one of the franchises most notorious villains.
A faux commercial for the restaurant Los Pollos Hermanos featuring drug kingpin/cheerful fast food manager Gus Fring just released hinting that we may soon get more a backstory of the criminal mastermind.
So far, the series has primarily focused on Jimmy McGill's (Bob Odenkirk) transformation from straight-laced lawyer to the ambulance chasing “criminal” lawyer Saul Goodman, but there’s been some rumors that more Breaking Bad characters would make appearances.
I was actually just with all of them [the Breaking Bad gang] at the AFI luncheon yesterday. And I did ask that question–when am I gonna come to Albuquerque for my wardrobe fitting? But I don't know! It's still up in the air.
Comedian and actor Aziz Ansari is headed to Saturday Live Night—at least for one night. The star of Master of None (and, formerly, Parks and Rec) will be joined by musical guest Big Sean. It will be both of their first times on the show.
It’s interesting timing for Ansari to host. The next season of his Netflix show doesn’t come out until this spring, and he doesn’t have any other projects that he’s currently promoting (at least, that fans know about). We’re not complaining though. Discuss
