Who's ready for 'Mariah Carey's Christmas Project'?
Oh lord … and Mariah Carey was having such a great year so far. In the spring, Mariah kicked off her concert residency in Las Vegas, then she met and started dating a billionaire, then she was finally approved for her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. All of these things are great. Today, tho, we learn that MC is set to make her directorial debut with a Xmas movie that will be produced for the Hallmark Channel. Furthermore, Mimi will be co-starring in said made-for-TV movie … which has been given the apt title of Mariah Carey’s Christmas Project. This movie will go into production in October (!) and will be released in December (!!!!!!!!!). I mean … that’s not a lot of time for a first-time director to get their first movie right, is it? Yes, it’s can be a career boon for a singer/actress to direct her first project … but something like this? For the Hallmark Channel? Doesn’t this sound like it has “disaster” written all over it?

For your deliberation
Back in March we learned that Scandal actress Kerry Washington signed on to star as Anita Hill in an upcoming HBO biopic film that will tell the tale of the 1991 Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Clarence Thomas, the man that Hill accused of gross sexual harassment. Today, we get our first look at Washington in character as Hill on the set of the HBO biopic film Confirmation, in production now. The film is being directed by Rick Famuyiwa (whose excellent new film Dope opens in theaters this Friday) and executive produced by Washington herself. Click below to see Kerry as Anita and get your first look at Confirmation. More »
"I'm scared ..."
Oh man … when I first learned that Will Ferrell and Kirsten Wiig were starring in a Lifetime made-for-TV movie titled A Deadly Adoption, I had a feeling it would be something that I would have to see. The short teaser trailer we got last week looked promising but the just-released extended trailer embedded above proves it … THIS MOVIE IS A MUST-SEE. What do you get when you mix Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig and Jessica Lowndes in a schlocky television drama? You get pure gold, apparently. OMG, I can’t believe how excited I am to watch this mess. A Deadly Adoption premieres on Lifetime next Saturday, June 20.
June 20, yes for real
Last week we learned the surprising news that Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig will be starring in a ridiculous made-for-TV movie on Lifetime this month titled A Deadly Adoption and today we get to feast our eyes on the FIRST TRAILER for the TV movie. Based on a true story, A Deadly Adoption is described as “a high-stakes dramatic thriller about a successful couple (Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig) who house and care for a pregnant woman (Jessica Lowndes) during the final months of her pregnancy with the hope of adopting her unborn child” … and then, I’m assuming, MAYHEM STRIKES! When this TV movie was revealed last week, many people believed that it was a hoax of some kind … and maybe it is a hoax … but it is also a real TV movie that will premiere on Lifetime on June 20. Check out the teaser trailer above and see if it looks like something you’d like to watch. I am definitely going to tune in, I can’t wait :D
