Everyone knows Salma Hayek as a celebrated performer, self-starting producer, one-time 30 Rock guest star, former model, and all-around sex symbol. But the upcoming cringe comedy Beatriz at Dinner will deal her the greatest acting challenge of her career, and possibly change all that in the process.

Fans of American Horror Story have been clamoring since Season 2 to return original star Connie Britton to the fold, and Ryan Murphy has (sort of) granted their wish. Britton has officially joined FX’s American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson in the role of Nicole Brown-Simpson’s friend Faye Resnick.
The 'This Is Where I Leave You' trailer sells a movie that could be unbearably sentimental, or genuinely warm and touching, or funny. It's almost impossible to tell from two-and-a-half minutes of footage. However, you're unlikely to find a stronger cast of likable, funny people than this, and director Shawn Levy is certainly due for a little redemption after making nonsense like 'The Internship' a
