Bill Murray To Voice Baloo In Upcoming 'Jungle Book' Film

8/2/2014 9:26am EDT
Bill Murray
Bill Murray has been cast as the voice of the loveable black bear Baloo in the upcoming adatation of the classic Disney masterpiece. Baloo is well known for his carefree nature, his antics and endearing laziness. He's all about the 'Bare Necessities' - and we're interested to know if Bill Murray will be piping up to sing the classic Disney tune.

Bill Murray's casting of Baloo isn't the first surprising choice, as Christopher Walken has been chosen to play King Louie, the leader of the apes. Idris Elba is scheduled to play the voice of the main antagonist, the tiger Shere Khan, while Ben ...

'Revolution' Review: 'One Riot, One Ranger'

10/24/2013 9:38am EDT
I’m not going to bore you with repeated statements about how impressed I am with Revolution’s upgraded performance, but after “One Riot, One Ranger,” I’m now absolutely sure more has happened in the past five episodes than in all of last season’s 22 episodes combined. The action-packed hour not only gave us some interesting intel, but also gave closure to the split group storyline by reuniting all of our main characters for the first time since May (recall that we began the season with everyone already split, hinging on flashbacks to show us exactly what went down that caused Charlie to str...

'Revolution' Recap: 'Patriot Games'

10/17/2013 10:27am EDT
I’ll start by being completely honest: Revolution is not my favorite show, but it’s worlds better than it was last season. More importantly? The program is finally, finally, finally getting on track to be what it should have been all along. (Remember how I pointed out that things were getting progressively darker? Apparently now we’ve gotten to the point where we have to put up one of those violence warnings. I’m not sure why NBC decided to move the show to an earlier hour only to have it be ten times more graphic than it ever was last season, but I also don’t claim to understand the inner ...

'Revolution' Review: 'There Will Be Blood'

10/3/2013 8:50am EDT
Revolution continues its revamped second season by picking up where we left off last week, with Aaron waking up after being mysteriously revived. It seems like this is going to be one of the bigger ongoing plot lines, and as much as some people might think it’s a bit “hokey” I actually find it interesting – we’re not only giving Zak Orth a storyline with potential, it’s also one that’s big enough to involve other characters (case in point, we see a bit more of Rachel’s uneasiness and guilt as Aaron tries to reconcile his resurrection.) While Aaron believes that his revival is due to the nan...

'Revolution' Season 2 Premiere: 'Born In The USA'

9/26/2013 9:55am EDT
Revolution has had an interesting journey.

The post-apocalyptic series premiered last fall with a promising cast, intriguing concepts, and skilled show runners – all the right ingredients for everything that equal buzz and success. But Revolution’s first season was plagued with misdirection; some good episodes balanced out by not so good ones as well as muddled storytelling. Often, its actors were the saving grace of an otherwise bland hour, and a mid-season setback in the form of a four-month hiatus didn’t help matters.

When we sat down with EP Eric Kripke at Comic Con, he revealed his a...

'Revolution' Recap: 'The Longest Day'

5/14/2013 12:59pm EDT
Revolution is about war. It’s about families being torn apart, it’s about loyalties being tested, and, as we were reminded tonight, it’s about survival – no matter who you are and who you love. Oftentimes, we forget about these factors in lieu of the “close call” deaths, random kidnappings, and heated dramatic exchanges. But “The Longest Day” (which thankfully was not really the longest day, turning out to be one of the better paced and more interesting episodes of the season) helped remember that this show is a war story as much as it’s a family story – something we needed heading into the...
