Alec Baldwin Floats Playing Donald Trump in One-Man Broadway Show

1 hour ago

Alec Baldwin may take his famed Donald Trump impersonation to Broadway, the actor says.

“We may take the book and make it into a one-man show on Broadway, like Will Ferrell did the Bush thing,” Baldwin said on The Howard Stern Show on Monday.

Baldwin is referring to his book “You Can’t Spell America Without Me,” which he co-wrote with Kurt Andersen. Ferrell starred in a Broadway show “You’re Welcome America” as President George W. Bush that ran for over a month at the Cort Theatre.

‘The Orville,’ ‘Swat,’ ‘Ballers’ Score California Tax Credits

1 hour ago

“Ballers” will continue balling on the Golden State’s dime — as will “S.W.A.T.,” “Shooter” and “The Orville.” The Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson-series scored another cool $6.8 million from the California Film Commission’s tax credit program. That Season 4 sum is higher than the allocation for the sophomore turn of Shemar Moore’s CBS cop drama, which landed about $6 million for its next run. Both are lower than the $8.2 million earmarked for Season 3 of USA Network’s “Shooter.” Though surely no one from those three subsidized series are complaining, their monies don’t come close to Fox’s “The Orville,” (pictured above) which. »

All-Male Golden Globes Director Nominees Get Eye Rolls: ‘Disappointed as Hell’

2 hours ago

It’s been a great year for women behind the camera, but the Hollywood Foreign Press Association still didn’t nominate a single woman in the Best Director category for this year’s Golden Globes. That omission flummoxed some commentators, who noted strong films this year by female helmers such a Patty Jenkins (“Wonder Woman”), Greta Gerwig (“Lady Bird”) and Dee Rees (“Mudbound”). “Not a single woman nominated for Best Director in a year where women killed it behind the camera. Disappointing as hell,” tweeted one user. Instead, the Globes nominated Guillermo del Toro (“The Shape of Water”), Martin McDonagh (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, »

Ratings: ABC ‘Frozen’ Rerun Freezes Out CBS Procedurals in Key Demo

4 hours ago

A tight “Sunday Night Football” game handed its host network a pretty comfortable Nielsen ratings victory last night. Behind NBC’s and Fox’s football, ABC edged CBS in primetime among the key 18-49 demographic — though their order flip-flops in terms of total viewers. ABC rebroadcast “Frozen” on Sunday, which beat two CBS procedurals in that fairly young demo. NBC was first in ratings with a 3.9 rating/13 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 12.8 million, according to preliminary numbers. The network’s pregame show and its New Orleans Saints-Atlanta Falcons game combined for those. »

Golden Globes Lessons: Voters Snub Diversity in Directing to Forgive Ridley Scott

4 hours ago

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association preferred big movies to little ones, they weren’t particularly driven by diversity and they’ve forgiven Ridley Scott for mocking them when they named his sci-fi drama “The Martian” the best comedy of 2015. Those were some of the lessons from the 2018 Golden Globe nominations, along with  the surprising muted reaction to Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” and the complete dismissal of “The Big Sick.” The latter film didn’t land a single nomination, though ones for screenplay, lead comedy actor (Kumail Nanjiani) and Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical seemed likely, and one for supporting actress. »
