Jason Sudeikis was such a great asset to the cast during his stint on ‘Saturday Night Live’ because he had such a versatile persona. He was perfectly capable playing the straight man against the outsized characters the other actors might dream up, but when the time came for him to deliver a punch line or bring the funny for a sillier character (such as the two a-holes he and Kristen Wiig repeatedly portrayed), he always came through. But with his ‘SNL’ days behind him and a full-time career blossoming before him, it seems that Sudeikis has settled into a solid type. He was a game romantic lead opposite Alison Brie in Leslye Headland’s savvy rom-com ‘Sleeping With Other People’ last year, rough around the edges and yet still lovable, and the trailer for his new picture ‘Tumbledown’ nudges him further down that same path.
'Glee' has understandably commanded its fair share of headlines in recent months, even as the series is poised to wrap up its final season in 2015, but it seems longtime fans of the series have some seriously good news: the upcoming 100th episode will feature the returns of most of the original cast, including repeat guest star and Broadway sensation Kristin Chenoweth.
It is no easier for me to report this than it is for you to hear it, but we're all adults and let's get real: Robert De Niro's name on a film project is now more a red flag of warning than a sign of quality. For every 'Silver Linings Playbook' there's a 'Big Wedding' or 'Righteous Kill' or a slapped-together piece of tone-deaf dross like 'The Family.'
For as much as we knew 'Glee' season 5 to be affected by actor Cory Monteith's death, airing two episodes and a tribute before pausing production to retool the series, we were surprised to hear such series stars as Heather Morris and Dianna Agron being left out of the Monteith tribute episode. And while the franchise remains a bit up in the air, Agron's absence may extend much further than "The Quarterback" farewell to Finn.
The cast of the hit show 'Glee' are moving on with their acting careers by slowing leaving the small screen to star in feature films. And 'Glee' star Dianna Agron is set to play the daughter of one of Hollywood's best actors in an upcoming dark action comedy.
There are a great deal of question marks floating around 'Glee's next season, given all the turnover and flip-flopping series creator Ryan Murphy has done over which stars would graduate and/or leave the series at the end of the current season. Now that production has wrapped, are the stars playing coy or being open about their commitment to another season?
