Will Arnett Officially Files For Divorce From Amy Poehler Following 2012 Split

April 17th, 2014 9:56am EDT
Will Arnett
Actor Will Arnett has officially filed court documents to legally divorce actress Amy Poehler. The pair announced their split in September 2012 after nine years of marriage.

According to People.com, Arnett, 43, requested joint legal and physical custody of their two sons, Archie, 5, and Abel, 3, along with visitation rights.

Both stars have moved one with their lives and have been dating other people for quite some time.

Last August, Arnett was linked to Billy Joel's ex-wife and celebrity chef Katie Lee, 31. He admitted he was scared of dating. He said at the time: "I don't know what you...

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Gets A TV Teaser: 'Brothers'

April 14th, 2014 7:08pm EDT
'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Gets A TV Teaser: 'Brothers'
"You live. You die. You fight... as brothers," says a voice we believe to be that of Master Splinter at the beginning of the new TV spot for this summer's live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. "Remember, nothing is as strong as family."

The new teaser, titled "Brothers," has been released and despite nearly all the footage being shown in last month's first teaser trailer (below) for the film, at least we get a decent look at the turtles' mentor, Splinter (Danny Woodburn, voiced by Tony Shalhoub). Although it's from behind.

Michael Bay's live adaptation of the series, which stars...

The Most Anticipated Films Of 2014, Part One

January 1st, 2014 9:03am EST
Dumb and Dumber
No more new films will be released in 2013 - but there's no need to fret! Check out why we're hyped (and why we're worried) for these highly-anticipated 2014 films:

Dumb And Dumber To

Why We’re Hyped: The Farrelly Brothers, Jim Carey, and Jeff Daniels would only do the film if everyone was involved.

Why We’re Worried: When’s the last time the Farrelly Brothers made a good movie? Will Jim Carrey alienate half of his audience on Twitter – again?

The Expendables 3

Why We’re Hyped: Antonio Banderas, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson and Kelsey Grammer join the ridiculous cast for another go at...

First Trailer For 2014 Block-Buster 'The Lego Movie' Released

June 19th, 2013 12:31pm EDT
The Lego Movie
"In 2014 The World's Greatest Heroes Will Join Forces For The Biggest Movie Ever Assembled," begins the trailer for next summer's literal block-buster The LEGO Movie.

The first trailer for the film was released on Tuesday (with the slightly different international version making its debut on Wednesday), and if the new feature-length adventure is anything like the recent Batman TV specials, it's sure to please.

The story features on Emmet, an "ordinary" LEGO Minifigure who is mistaken for the legendary "MasterBuilder" and thrust into an adventure to stop an evil tyrand from destroying the...

'Arrested Development' Stars Unite For Premiere, John Krasinski Confirmed As Guest Star

April 30th, 2013 3:07pm EDT
Arrested Development
Arrested Development's all-star cast was back together on the red carpet for the premiere of their Netflix series - and news was released that its guest star list is still growing.

Jason Bateman, Jeffrey Tambor, Portia de Rossi, Michael Cera, Will Arnett, Alia Shawkat, David Cross, and Jessica Walter were back together after seven years of cancellation to meet the press and celebrate the unlikely return of the cult hit TV show.

According to USA Today, de Rossi called it "such a relief. It's so exciting. I've been waiting for a long, long time." 

"It was divine to put that hook back on," ...

Will Arnett Joins The Cast Of 'Ninja Turtles'

April 3rd, 2013 3:07pm EDT
Will Arnett
Comedian Will Arnett joined the cast of Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles, but it hasn't been revealed who he will be playing.

Arnett joins Megan Fox, who will be playing as April O'Neil, the journalist-turned friend of the turtles. Megan's casting came as a surprise, considering her relationship with Michael Bay following her departure of the Transformers series.

The Hollywood Reporter claims Arnett will not be playing turtle ally Casey Jones, so we won't see any romantic chemistry between him and Fox. That leaves characters such as sensei rat Splinter and his nemesis The Shredder, as well as ...

'Arrested Development' Cast Talks New Netflix Episodes At TCA

January 10th, 2013 1:00pm EST
Will Arnett, Portia De Rossi, Jason Bateman and Tony Hale
The Television Critics Association waited all week for the Arrested Development panel held by Netflix. In fact, they’ve been waiting six years since the Fox series was cancelled. The major rumor was the cast would reunite for a movie, but Netflix is putting on a 14 episode season of episodes. The difference is each episode will focus on one member of the Bluth family. That was the only way they could get the entire cast back.

“They have other commitments, they’re on other shows, they have other contractual obligations,” series creator Mitch Hurwitz explained. “Their lives have gone on so i...

2012 Celebrity Breakups

December 15th, 2012 9:00am EST
Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes
Every year some of our favorite famous couples decide it isn't working out for them anymore and they break up. Sometimes fans are surprised by the announcement, and other times we wonder why it didn't happen sooner.

One of the most shocking splits was Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. The actress stunned fans over the summer when she announced her five-year marriage to Cruise was over, and she filed to legally end the union on June 28, citing "irreconcilable differences" for the split.

Katie will receive $400,000 a year in child support for the couple's daughter, Suri. The payments will con...

Notes From Tribeca: Come And Get 'Mansome' With Jason Bateman, Will Arnett And Morgan Spurlock

April 27th, 2012 10:39am EDT
Mansome
I don’t know why documentaries always have to be so serious. Thank god for Morgan Spurlock. The man who brought us Super Size Me and Freakonomics is back with perhaps his funniest path to discovery yet. Mansome is exactly what it sounds like—an education course in male pampering and grooming.

Anchored by Arrested Development’s Jason Bateman and Will Arnett, Spurlock takes us through the different facets of prettying up in the new century. From waxing to moustaches, we get differing perspectives of male hair from today’s leading experts and celebrities such as Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis...

Michelle Williams Headlines The Red Carpet At Tribeca 'Take This Waltz' Premiere

Michelle Williams at Take This Waltz on Sunday
The 11th Annual Tribeca Film Festival came out swinging on its opening weekend with red carpets that were nothing short of fully loaded. From the much-hyped premiere of Jason Segal’s Five-Year Engagement to Freaky Deaky, Tribeca has finally found its form in bringing A-listers out and creating serious buzz around these opening screenings and with moviegoers. There was a lot of talk after Will Arnet showed up mugging his Blue Steel on the carpet for the premiere of Mansome Saturday night, fully GQ’d and headlining a murderer’s row of well-dressed, metrosexually flavoured men.

'Up All Night' Recap: 'The Proposals'

April 13th, 2012 3:27pm EDT
Up All Night
When I first saw in the previews for the "Up All Night" season finale that Kevin returns to propose to Ava, which prompts Chris to RE-propose to Reagan, I let out an audible groan. However, by the end of "The Proposals," I may have let out an audible sniffle or two. And there may have been something in my eye, causing it to leak fluid. Let's get this straight: I WAS NOT CRYING. But I will admit that, for a somewhat flawed episode, it managed to end on a truly sweet note that acted as an antidote to my elevated levels of cynicism.

When Chris and Reagan recount their engagement story to ...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Baby Fever'

March 16th, 2012 11:53am EDT
Up All Night
Just as I was starting to think that Will Arnett might never again be objectified for my viewing pleasure, the "Up All Night" writers came to the rescue! This week, we got to see Chris in the tub, in a towel and in his undies. And even though it was only a C-grade episode as a whole, I'm grading this one on a curve since it featured Arnett 1) in various states of undress and 2) uttering a classic Gob-ism.

The problem with this episode was that each of the three main characters had a separate storyline, and while there were times when they meshed to make some good moments (Chris and Reaga...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Couple Friends'

March 12th, 2012 7:23am EDT
Up All Night
Although “Up All Night” took a bit of a wrong turn with last week’s “New Boss,” it quickly got back on track with this Thursday's "Couple Friends," which finds the Brinkleys on the hunt for that titular twosome they can actually tolerate.

It's established in the cold open (in which Reagan and Chris futilely try to pump themselves up to go dubstepping with some hipster pals) that the Brinkleys are in desperate need of another age-appropriate couple to hang out with. Obviously, Gene and Terry are not an option. But it's while at that very boring duo's house for a neighborhood crime watch ...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'New Boss'

March 2nd, 2012 1:04pm EST
Up All Night
After a string of really well-written episodes (including last week’s “First Birthday,” which must have been so good that I forgot to recap it), “Up All Night” hit a snag with last night’s “New Boss.” While there were some funny moments – mostly thanks to Will Arnett’s awkward attempts at machismo – the story was all over the place and never managed to really go anywhere.

The first red flag signaling that this is a poorly scripted episode is the announcement that Kevin (Jason Lee) moved to Idaho for a new job – an important tidbit that was revealed so matter-of-factly that I started to w...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Travel Day'

February 17th, 2012 2:36pm EST
Up All Night
People, “Up All Night” has definitely found a groove. When it first joined NBC’s Thursday night lineup, I was a little cranky about it because it came at the expense of “Community.” And although I still miss “Community” something fierce, I’ve stopped expecting “Up All Night” to fill that show’s ridiculously big clown shoes, and just focus on its solid writing, cute-as-hell baby and charismatic cast. And then of course there’s Will Arnett. I’ve gone back and forth on this issue, but I think I’ve finally made a decision: he’s sexier than Joel McHale. There, I’ve said it. It’s official. Is h...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Day After Valentine's Day'

Up All Night
I’m starting to notice something about “Up All Night.” None of the plots are terribly clever, yet it manages to be inoffensive at worst and laugh-out-loud funny at best. How does that work? Is it great writing, or is it the actors who bring that writing to life? After seeing last night’s episode, I’m still not completely sure. Even though the writers came up with one of this series’ most clichéd plots, there were a lot of really well-written moments and hilarious quotes. And Will Arnett, Christina Applegate, Maya Rudolph and Jason Lee did a fantastic job of bringing the funny, making this ...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Preschool Auction'

February 3rd, 2012 1:02pm EST
Up All Night
“Up All Night” continued its trend of casting great guest stars (Molly Shannon, Megan Mullally and, coming soon, The Fonz!) this week by bringing Dean Winters in to play Chris’s competitive brother, Casey. Since Will Arnett is especially delightful in “Look at me, baby, I’m a real man” mode, giving Chris a brother who can play that role just as well, while feeding Chris’s insecurities was a great move by the show’s writers.

In addition to sibling rivalry, “Preschool Auction” focused on Reagan’s obsession with getting Amy accepted to Little Nudge Academy, the best adorably named, petting ...

2012 Golden Globes Fashion: Who Rocked The Red Carpet & Who Didn't?

2012 Golden Globes fashion
The Golden Globes are the first big awards show of the season, and the stars came out in colorful ensembles to attend one of Hollywood's most prestigious events leading up to the Academy Awards.

There were very few fashion missteps at this year's event. "Homeland" actress Morena Baccarin wore a daring black dress that showed quite a bit of cleavage (is that appropriate?), while "Ringer" star Sarah Michelle Gellar took a chance with a blue and white tie-dyed gown (too bohemian?).

There wasn't a lot of flash on the red carpet. Few stars wore sequins (Laura Dern, Madonna, Diane Lane and did)...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'New Year's Eve'

January 13th, 2012 2:03pm EST
Up All Night
“Up All Night” debuted in its Thursday night post-“Office” slot and proved what we kind of all already knew: it’s more than a worthy replacement for the abysmal “Whitney,” but not nearly good enough to make up for the loss of “Community.” That doesn’t mean I’ve stopped liking the show. I’ll happily eat the hamburger, but I’m still gonna be pissed that the filet mignon in unicorn sauce was taken off the menu. Aaaaanyway…this is the last time I’ll whip out the “Community” comparisons. It’s not really fair. Well, unless it’s being compared to “Parks and Recreation,” which is just as brilliant....

'Up All Night' Recap: 'First Christmas'

December 8th, 2011 10:07am EST
Up All Night
This week, “Up All Night” rolled out its first Christmas episode. In the context of the series, and compared to sitcom Christmas episodes in general, it was a success.

When Chris and Reagan stroll Amy by Gene and Terry’s pimped-out “Winter Wonderland” yard display, the adorable toddler lights up like Rudolph’s nose. (The reindeer, not Maya.) Upon seeing this, Reagan decides to deck her own halls to make Amy happy, despite her aversion to overblown holiday decorations. Of course, this brings Reagan’s OCD-ness (which was in full effect last week) raging to the surface. Reagan’s mom, Angie ...

Happy 40th Birthday Christina Applegate

Christina Applegate
Not only is she gorgeous, hilarious and down to Earth - Christina Applegate looks damn good for turning the big 40 today! Best known for playing Kelly Bundy, the dumb blonde, on the FOX sitcom Married...with Children, Christina has surpassed any stereotype she may have earned from that role and turned her career into a very successful one. Growing up in Hollywood with a producer father and an actress mother definitely helped out her career but Christina made a name for herself, independent from her parents. Although she did make her television debut with her mother on Days of Our Lives, her...

Ron Howard Encourages 'Arrested Development' Fans To Keep Campaigning

November 17th, 2011 2:52pm EST
Ron Howard
Director/producer Ron Howard is encouraging fans of his cult comedy show Arrested Development to continue voicing their desire to see a new series and movie adaptation in an effort to ensure producers follow through with comeback plans.

The hit sitcom, which aired from 2003 to 2006 and starred Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi and Will Arnett, won critical acclaim for Howard and the cast, but it didn't make it past cult status among viewers and was cancelled.

Fans have long been campaigning for TV bosses to make a film version of the show, and their wish was granted last month when Bateman...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Hiring and Firing'

Up All Night on NBC
Since the news broke that the Schmitties at NBC decided to handle the return of “30 Rock” by pulling “Community” (aka the best show on TV) from its mid-season lineup, a lot of anger has been directed (deservedly) at “Whitney,” which will get a move to Wednesday instead of a much-needed mercy killing, and (not-so-deservedly) "Up All Night," which will take the Thursday, 9:30 pm timeslot. Although I’m pretty irritated about the “Community” debacle, my fondness for “Up All Night” (and especially my fondness for Will Arnett) has led me to defend it to the many who hate it. So, I was really hopi...

Jason Lee and Maya Rudolph in
Since my only real complaint about "Up All Night" has been that Ava's storylines often feel like they're part of a completely different show (a problem that the show has been gradually fixing), I have to give two big thumbs up to this week's episode for how it seamlessly integrates Ava into Chris and Reagan's story. Or maybe it's the other way around. Yes, "First Night Away" is also the first night that Maya Rudolph gets to be the star, while Will Arnett and Christina Applegate stand just on the edge of the spotlight, looking cute and making out a lot. And you know what? I'm surprisingly fi...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Birth'

October 20th, 2011 9:17am EDT
Christina Applegate and Will Arnett in
As its title suggests, the latest episode of "Up All Night" takes us back 18 months to the events surrounding little Amy Brinkley's introduction to the world. The poop jokes are in place, as is the requisite birthing video-viewing-turns-to-horror scene. As an episode of a comedy series, it's not the strongest installment, but as a device to make viewers care more about the characters and their relationships, it works quite well. And shucks, it's just sweet.

"Birth" also helps to paint Ava in a more sympathetic light. Sure, she's a self-obsessed freak, but she's also a lost little girl ev...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Mr. Bob's Toddler Kaleidoscope'

October 13th, 2011 9:14am EDT
Christina Applegate and Will Arnett in
Even though the latest episode of "Up All Night" was filmed well before last week's recap, it somehow managed to address many of the issues I felt were keeping the show from being as good as it could be. As a result, this week's episode is the strongest so far.

Last week, I suggested that "Up All Night" needed to focus more on Chris and Reagan's relationships—with each other and with their baby—and dial back Ava's over-the-top storylines so that they mesh better with the rest of the show. "Mr. Bob's Toddler Kaleidoscope" does just that by giving Reagan and Ava storylines that mirror eac...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'New Car'

October 6th, 2011 9:06am EDT
Like all new parents, Chris and Reagan Brinkley have been dealing with a lot of changes—both as a couple and as individuals. So far, "Up All Night" has focused on the resulting inner turmoil, like the fear of no longer being cool, the struggle to keep passion alive in their relationship, and just the general panic that comes with the responsibility of caring for a tiny human being. This week's episode steers away from the emotional and into the superficial, as Chris tries to convince Reagan to give up her other baby, a sweet (and impractical) BMW convertible.

Perhaps this decision is so...

NBC Cancels 'Playboy Club,' Gives Full Season Pickups To 'Up All Night' & 'Whitney'

October 4th, 2011 1:38pm EDT
The Playboy Club
NBC has canceled the first show of the 2011 season: "The Playboy Club" is kaput. On Monday night the series attracted only 3.4 million viewers. The show centered on the bunnies who worked at the famous 1960s hotspot and involved the murder of a mob boss.

On the flip side, NBC has picked up the new comedies "Up All Night" and "Whitney" for the remainder of the 2011-12 season.

"Up All Night" is an irreverent look at modern parenthood. Christina Applegate stars as Reagan Brinkley: loving wife, successful career woman, life of the party and, most recently, mom. Determined not to compromise he...

'Arrested Development' Returning To TV With A Film To Follow

Arrested Development
Hit TV show Arrested Development is returning to screens for a new series and a full-length movie.

The cult comedy, which ran from 2003 to 2006, won critical acclaim, six Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe, making a big star of Jason Bateman.

Now the dysfunctional Bluth family are back, with Bateman confirming there will be 10 new episodes and a big screen outing in 2013.

Will Arnett and Will Forte in
When we last caught up with the Brinkleys, they were preoccupied with maintaining their coolness. On this week's "Up All Night," Chris starts to wonder where sexy went and tries to persuade Reagan to bring it back.

The latest episode centers around what seems to be an indisputable fact of family life: babies are tiny, evil sex vampires. Just like cats steal your breath, babies sap your will to do the nasty. Chris begins to realize this when he makes Reagan a romantic dinner (gnocchi - nature's most powerful aphrodisiac), which fails to get her in the mood but succeeds in getting her to...
