American Idol really can make stars out of you! Jennifer Hudson is making her return to the big screen in Alicia Keys‘ executive produced film The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete. The movie, which strongly focuses on a drug-addict trying to make a living to feed herself and her son, has received very good reviews at the Sundance Film Festival where it premièred a clip starring J-Hud and Jeffrey Wright.
The room in which Whitney Houston passed away in has been turned into a broom closet, according to new reports. The legendary singer, who passed away in February 2012, had been staying in Room 434 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in preparation for last year’s Grammy Awards but she never made it to the event, losing her life just one day before the bash.
I have been pretty bummed out, knowing that Steve Carell is leaving one of my all time favorite shows, The Office. But this news eases my pain a bit:
Comedic actor/producer/writer Will Ferrell will guest-star over an arc of episodes on NBC’s Emmy Award-winning “The Office” (Thursdays, 9-9:30 p.m. ET) as a branch manager who arrives from the home office and proves to be just as inappropriate as Michael (Golden Globe winner Steve Carell).
“We found Steve Carell when he was nothing but a movie star and we turned him into a television star,” said executive producer Paul Lieberstein. “We are proud to continue ‘The Office’s’ tradition of discovering famous talent, and we hope that once America gets a good look at Will, they’ll see what we see: tremendous raw sexuality.”
OMG. That is too funny. Yes, Will Ferrell makes me think of “raw sexuality” for sure! Ha! I love it! How stoked are you for these episodes?
By the way, Will called in and asked to do the show. He wants to give his pal a good send off. Reminds me of his send off for Conan O’Brien on his last show on NBC.
‘You’re my boy Will!”
