Tim Curry Is Joining The ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ Remake, Making It Totally Official

Tim Curry

It’s astounding…no, it really is. I couldn’t be happier that THE Tim Curry, you know, the original Dr. Frank-N-Furter, is joining Fox’s remake of  Rocky Horror Picture Show, because let’s be honest, it just wouldn’t be real with out him. While we already reported that Laverne Cox will be taking over Curry’s role (and you know she’ll kill it), Tim will be playing the narrator/criminologist, which just feels freaking perfect. In the movie Charles Gray played the role, but make way for Tim. More »

The Female Roles In ‘The Wiz Live!’ Are Much More Empowering Than In The Original Story, And Here’s Why

Queen Latifah

We’re all pumped for the NBC special, The Wiz Live!, which has a crazy all star lineup, some wild costumes, and insanely talented voices. But that’s not all it has. Director Kenny Leon spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the female characters in the special. First off, Queen Latifah is playing The Wiz, which is a whole new spin in itself. Kenny was inspired by her performance in A Raisin In The Sun on Broadway, and generally thought she was perfect for the role. But him and writer Harvey Fierstein, who revised the book for this version of the show, wanted to change up her backstory and make it more fitting. More »

Check Out The New Clip From NBC’S ‘The Wiz Live!’ Plus Other Behind The Scenes Goodies

So NBC is hosting The Wiz Live on December 3rd, which is amazing, because who doesn’t like The Wiz? The show is star studded and includes Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blidge, Common, Ne-Yo, Uzo Aduba, Amber Riley and so so many more. We have  The Sound Of Music Live, starring Carrie Underwood to thank for this. After it did so well in 2013, NBC decided to keep doing more live musical shows. Last year they did Peter Pan Live, but personally I’m most excited for this one. This first clip reveals part of the choreographed sequence from the musical number “Brand New Day,” which looks flippin’ insane. Also, I am just loving Queen Latifah as the Wizard of Oz. Check it.

First Look: This New Clip From Lifetime’s ‘The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story’ Is Painfully Fun To Watch

This is gonna be so bad, so good, but mostly so bad

Last weekend, we got to see a trailer for Lifetime TV‘s upcoming made-for-TV movie The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story and today we get to see NEW footage from the movie. As excited as I am to watch this TV movie, it is impossible not to cringe to near death while watching this clip of footage. This scene from the 90210 movie is very likely a good indicator of the writing and acting that we can expect when it airs on Lifetime on October 3. I must warn you, this clip is very painful to watch … but you have to see it because, OMG, it’s so bad it’s going to be so good. Brace yourselves, then click below. More »

Watch: Lifetime Releases Trailers For Their Forthcoming Unauthorized ‘Beverly Hills, 90210′ & ‘Melrose Place’ TV Movies

"Did somebody order a bitch?"

We are just a few weeks away from the Lifetime TV premiere of The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story and The Unauthorized Melrose Place Story but today we get a sneak peek at what’s to come. A pair of preview trailer have been released for both TV movies and as you can see below, the drama on both will be amazingly high. The 90210 trailer puts emphasis on Shannen Doherty‘s reputation for being a “bitch” and the Melrose Place trailer puts emphasis on how over-the-top crazy their storylines were. I mean, it’s not saying much but I have a feeling that these two made for TV movies will be the best ones that Lifetime has ever produced. Click below to get your first look at the unauthorized stories of Beverly Hills, 90210 and Melrose Place and get EXCITED! More »

Toni Braxton Is Producing A Biopic Based On Her Memoir For Lifetime TV

The AUTHORIZED Toni Braxton Story

Lifetime TV has made a name for itself by producing cheesy made-for-TV movies that have, in recent months, focused on telling unauthorized tales of beloved TV shows like Saved By The Bell, Full House, Beverly Hills, 90210 and Melrose Place. Today we learn that they have partnered with singer Toni Braxton to produce an authorized biopic film that will be based on her 2014 memoir Un-Break My Heart. With Toni executive producing the film, there is a slight chance that the production value of this particular biopic TV movie might be elevated above the rest of Lifetime’s TV movie programming but … I’m not holding my breath. But, in all honesty, if Toni is cool with letting Lifetime tell her story, I’m totally cool with it, too. More »

Mariah Carey Will Direct & Star In A Xmas Movie For The Hallmark Channel

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?

Luke Perry Says He Will NOT Watch ‘The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story’ On Lifetime

"Why would I watch?"

Altho a great many of us are counting down the seconds until Lifetime airs The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story in October, at least one BH, 90210 castmember swears that he will not be watching. The Hollywood Reporter ran into Perry at the Television Critics Association‘s summer press tour this week and asked him if he is planning to watch the forthcoming made-for-TV biopic movie. In very characteristic Dylan McKay fashion, Perry insited that he has no plans to watch the biopic film because A.) he doesn’t even watch his own projects on TV and B.) the tell-all biopic has no relevance to his life. Sooo … yeah, he ain’t watchin’. More »
