It's in the nature of every movie fan to approach remakes with caution, but the new 'The Gambler' trailer makes us feel like this is one do-over that's worth our time and money. Mark Wahlberg steps in for James Caan and director Rupert Wyatt steps in for Karl Reisz and the result is a film that looks to honor the original while very much doing its own thing.
Amazon's John Goodman-led original series, 'Alpha House,' garnered much acclaim during its first season run and even challenged Netflix's premiere model by initially releasing only the first three episodes before transitioning into a weekly release. So far, it's proved successful, and now Amazon has officially given the green light to 'Alpha House' season 2, in addition to series orders for six other programs.
“They don't make 'em like that anymore!”
That's what my old man always liked to say when we'd watch a black and white Hollywood classic. Sometimes he meant it as a sign of respect. Sometimes he meant it to mean, "Wow, that was super cheesy."
In 1988, a new kind of sitcom debuted: 'Roseanne,' created by and starring Roseanne Barr as the matriarch of the working-class Conner family living in Illinois. With her husband Dan, played by John Goodman, Roseanne tried to juggle work and raising her kids properly while dealing with more relatable problems faced by families, like poverty, drug abuse, and teen pregnancy. The show ended its long run in 1997, and today we take a look back at the cast 17 years later to see what they're up to now.
It's not every day that an actor of John Goodman's caliber hosts 'SNL,' but whatever the odds, it's not nearly as uncommon as him being joined by Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro for a holiday-themed sketch that sees the three silver screen icons re-imagined as tough-talking guys on the way to visit the baby Jesus. Yep, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ...
On tonight's all-new episode of 'SNL,' John Goodman returns to the 30 Rock stage to host for the 13th time! It's hard to believe, we know, but we're really excited for Goodman, who's on hand tonight in anticipation of the Coen Brothers' 'Inside Llewyn Davis.' But we're even more excited after the ups and downs of the season -- surely a total 'SNL' veteran host like Goodman will bring the, um, goods (pardon the pun). So how did he do? Read on for our full recap and review!
We're midway through 'SNL''s December 2013 run after 'Anchorman 2' player Paul Rudd's star-studded turn with One Direction this past weekend, leaving 12-time host and 'Inside Llewyn Davis' star John Goodman up to bat with Kings of Leon. The first promos for Goodman's 13th 'SNL' turn have arrived, but will the unlucky number prove the repeat host's undoing?
Excited as we are to see 'The Hunger Games' star Josh Hutcherson volunteer as tribute this coming weekend, we had to wonder who 'SNL' would recruit for its December run. That answer has finally arrived with a resounding Paul Rudd, John Goodman, and a dual feature with 'SNL' alum Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake, not to mention the musical guests!
