‘The Loudest Voice’ Review: Russell Crowe’s License to Ailes

‘The Loudest Voice’ Review: Russell Crowe’s License to Ailes
Credit where credit’s due: The Loudest Voice, Showtime’s seven-part miniseries about the rise and fall of Fox News chairman/alleged chronic sexual harasser Roger Ailes, is dedicated to living up to its name. From the moment that Russell Crowe’s jowly, handsy version of the political consultant-turned-conservative kingmaker shows up in a diner, predicting how his epitaph will read — “right-wing, paranoid, fat” — you have the distinct feeling you are being yelled at. And not just by the Oscar-winning actor, though he does unleash hell via a variety of high-volume bellows,

Spider-Man: Far from Home Weird Trailer Spirals Into a Mind-Melting Multiverse

Spider-Man: Far from Home Weird Trailer Spirals Into a Mind-Melting Multiverse
The original trailer for Spider-Man: Far from Home has a melancholy feel to it for obvious reasons. However, that has all changed in the latest Weird Trailer for the highly anticipated sequel. All of the sad parts of the trailer have been turned into a ridiculous and bizarre trip into a new multiverse featuring Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's take on the character, along with some other interesting twists and turns that will leave you scratching your head and hopefully laughing at the same time.

While Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield get a decent amount of screen time in the Spider-Man: Far From Home Weird Trailer, it's Jim Carrey's Doctor Robotnik from the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie who ends up in a lot of scenes, letting the audience know he really doesn't care. Even the Sonic character has been thrown into the pop culture stew that makes up this particular weird trailer,

The Simpsons Season 31 Will Premiere September 29

Tony Sokol Jun 24, 2019

The longest-running half hour on TV is ready for another lap as The Simpsons season 31 gets a release date.

The Simpsons, the lovable, loathable, yellow-skinned, eight-fingered nuclear family who dominate my Sunday nights, paid another two years on their Evergreen Terrace property mortage. Lisa went radical last year, Bart's always been radical and Homer still forgets to check the safety gauges on the radicals at the nuclear plant. The family has grown and yet, we are still waiting for Maggie to talk. The Simpsons season 31 will premiere on Fox beginning September 29.

The Simpsons will anchor Sunday nights during their 2019-2020 season. They will be followed by new series Bless the Harts, which will lead in to the returning comedies Bob’s Burgers and Seth Macfarlane's Family Guy.

Fox picked up The Simpsons Season 31 and 32 in February. By the end of Season 32, the series will have produced a total of 713 episodes.

Writers Guild of America West President David Goodman Running Unopposed for Second Term

Writers Guild of America West President David Goodman Running Unopposed for Second Term
David A. Goodman is running unopposed for a second two-year term as president of the Writers Guild of America West.

Goodman, who has become the public voice of the guild during its bitter standoff with Hollywood agents, also ran unopposed in 2017 when he succeeded Howard Rodman in the post.

The WGA West announced Friday that its negotiating committee had sought a second unidentified candidate for the presidency but that person opted not to run. Goodman could still face opposition if another candidate opts to run by petition, which would require submission of 25 member signatures by July 23.

Goodman served as executive producer of Seth MacFarlane’s “Family Guy” between 2005 and 2012. He broke into the business in 1986 as a story editor on “The Golden Girls” and has writing and producing credits on “Enterprise,” “American Dad,” “Allen Gregory,” “Futurama,” “Babes,” and “Stark Raving Mad.”

The WGA standoff with agents appears to have no end in sight.

  • Variety
Top Hollywood publicist and executive Joy Fehily has resigned from her post at public relations firm Pmk-Bnc, individuals familiar with the move told Variety.

Fehily steps down in the midst of a five-year deal with the show business institution, insiders said, which reps A-list actors and below-the-line talent as well as huge brands like American Express. She will move into a consulting role with as many as 40 accounts that will remain at the agency — and become a manager for longtime client and “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, his production company Fuzzy Door and his charitable foundation.

Fehily, who will remain at the company the company through the end of July, and Pmk-bnc chairman and CEO Cindi Berger confirmed the news but did not comment further.

Fehily and her partner Michael Donkis joined Pmk in 2016, when the publicly traded firm absorbed their company Prime PR. Among the starry clients

DC Universe’s Harley Quinn animated series finds its Catwoman in Sanaa Lathan

During an appearance at the American Black Film Festival (via BlackFilm), The Affair actress Sanaa Lathan has revealed that she is set to lend her voice to Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman, in DC Universe’s upcoming adult animated series Harley Quinn.

The show sees The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco lending her voice to the fan favourite Harley, who – after breaking things off with the Joker – attempts to make it on her own in the criminal underworld of Gotham City and earn a seat at the biggest table in villainy: the Legion of the Doom.

Lathan already has plenty of animated experience through her role as Donna Tubbs in Family Guy and its spinoff The Cleveland Show. She also recently starred in the Netflix original feature Native Son.

‘BoJack Horseman’ Director Amy Winfrey Talks Women In Animation & Season 5 Bottle Episode, “Free Churro”

  • Deadline
No, that’s not a typo in the title of Amy Winfrey’s Making Fiends. The multifaceted Winfrey created a children’s horror web series about a murderous little girl whose friends are monsters and whose nemesis is Pollyanna on steroids that was madly delightful enough to be picked up by Nickelodeon in 2008. Winfrey, also known for her work as an animator on South Park, currently serves as a director on the critically acclaimed Netflix series, BoJack Horseman.

Winfrey’s deranged web series, all accessible via her website amywinfrey.com, include Big Bunny, Squid and Frog, and MuffinFilms, in which bad things happen to good desserts.

Poor ‘Family Guy’: Best performances by a furious, fed-up, snarky Emmy loser

Poor ‘Family Guy’: Best performances by a furious, fed-up, snarky Emmy loser
Every year “Family Guy” mounts the most outrageous (even shocking) Fyc campaigns in order to grab voters’ attention and try to win that long-denied Emmy Award for Best Animated Program. This year’s DVD mailer shows Peter Griffin as a rather chunky, pouty Jon Snow, seated smugly on his Iron Throne under the announcement, “Due to a printing error, if you wish to vote for ‘Game of Thrones,’ please check the ‘Family Guy’ box on the Animation Ballot.”

Family Guy’s” Emmy campaigns are always timely, in this case because “Thrones” just made its final bow on HBO, of course, but its new Fyc push is relatively tame considering the savage satire sometimes employed on previous campaigns. Last year, for example, at the height of #MeToo mania, Peter appeared on the cover of the DVD mailer under the words, “We predicted Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein. Open DVD to see who’s next.

Rick And Morty's 10 Greatest Movie Parodies, Ranked

What separates Rick and Morty from other animated series like Family Guy is that it focuses more on plot and character than gags and pop culture references. Still, the gags and pop culture references are there.

On a few occasions, the show has parodied a specific movie with its episodes, either by taking the concept of a recent sci-fi movie and Rick and Morty-izing it or making an overt reference to the movie itself, like Rick’s quote about Inception: “It’s like Inception, Morty, so if it’s confusing and stupid, then so is everyone’s favorite movie.” So, here are Rick And Morty’s 10 Greatest Movie Parodies, Ranked.

‘Family Guy’ Pokes Fun At College Admission Scandal In New Emmys Fyc Ad

  • Deadline
Known for its topical humor, Fox’s Family Guy surprisingly took a pop culture approach to its Emmy mailers this year, ribbing time-slot rival and the biggest drama on television, HBO’s Game of Thrones, in pursuit of votes.

But the irreverent animated comedy is staying true to its Emmy campaign roots with a rare “bonus” Fyc ad that takes a shot at the college admission scandal that rocked Hollywood, with actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman among 50 indicted so far for allegedly bribing their kids’ way into college.

The new Family Guy ad, which will run on the show’s Fyc site for Emmy voters featuring screeners of selected episodes, draws inspiration from the case against former Full House star Loughlin who, along with her husband, allegedly paid $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters accepted into University of Southern California as recruits on the crew team — even though they don’t row.

Family Guy: The 10 Worst Things Stewie Has Ever Done

Throughout the years, Family Guy has created some hilarious moments. Debuting in 1998, the Griffin family captured the hearts, minds, and funny bones of everyone with a juvenile sense of humor around the world. Many of the best moments came from none other than Stewie Griffin (Seth MacFarlane) — the morally questionable baby of the family. Debuting as an evil mastermind bent on killing his mother, he's slowly transformed into more of a fun genius who gets into hi-jinks with the family's dog, Brian (Seth MacFarlane). With that said, even though he's moved away from his murderous beginnings, he still finds himself in some less-than-ethical situations and we love him for it. So, we've compiled some of his worst actions and did our best to rank them from least worst to best worst.

Emmys: To Host or Not to Host?

  • Variety
It’s now the most dangerous job in television. Celebrities used to clamor to host major awards shows such as the Emmys, but those were clearly simpler times.

As evidenced by the recent Oscars hosting debacle — in which this year’s show finally had to go host-free after a series of unfortunate events — it’s not easy to find the right emcee. There’s more pressure than ever for the people who get those gigs — and not everyone’s sure it’s worth the trouble anymore. Add into the mix that Fox is airing this year’s Primetime Emmys, and a hosting choice becomes even less obvious.

Fox doesn’t have a late-night franchise, which means it doesn’t have an obvious pick for host. But that may give creative license to last year’s telecast producers, Don Mischer Prods. and Done+Dusted, to go a completely different route. According to network insiders,
