Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper to Star in "The A-Team?" 


Liam Neeson and "The Hangover's" Bradley Cooper are in talks to to star in the big-screen adaptation of "The A-Team." Neeson may play the role of Col. John "Hannibal" Smith, while Cooper may channel Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck.

Director Joe Carnahan is set to helm the flick based on the 1980s TV series. Production begins in late August for a June 11, 2010 release!

Carnahan and Brian Bloom polished the script written by Skip Woods ("G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra," "Wolverine").

According to Variety, Neeson and Fox are working to agree on...money, of course!

So now we can speculate. Who should play Capt. "Howling Mad" Murdock and the role made famous by Mr. T, Sgt. B.A." Baracus?

Robert Rodriguez Wants "The Jetsons" 


That Robert Rodriguez is one busy dude! Not only is he rebooting the "Predator," he's also moving forward with a "Sin City" sequel. But wait there's more! Rodriguez also wants to work on a "Grindhouse" spin-off called "Machete" and the sci-fi thriller "Nerverackers."

But Rodriguez also wants to reawaken "Barbarella," and now, he wants to launch a live-action adaptation of "The Jetsons."

Rodriguez told MTV news, "I’ve been developing [The Jetsons] for awhile,” and he's "hoping to start shooting “next year.”

Adam F. Goldberg, the guy who gave us "Fanboys," wrote an early version of the script that has since been reworked.

So who should play George Jetson, his boy Elroy, daughter Judy, and Jane his wife? But most importantly, who should play Rosie, the robot housekeeper?

"Hangover" Says Cheers! Comedy Pulls Down "Up" from No. 1 Spot! Final Box-Office Tally Reveals 


Yesterday, studios estimated that "Up" was the weekend winner with $44.2 million during its second week. But hold on, final tally reveals "The Hangover" edges the Disney-Pixar animated flick from the No. 1 spot with a $45 million weekend!

(Click here for the weekend box-office estimates)

But the sad story of the box-office weekend? "Land of the Lost" which was estimated to have sold $19.5 million in box-office tickets actually had a final tally of selling only $18.8 million. It has been downgraded!

Sorry Will Ferrell. :sad

I have nothing but great admiration for the cast and crew of "Away We Go." Director Sam Mendes crafted a sweet, simple film about parenting, nesting, and the family unit. The film is in limited release right now, but for theaters and showtimes for "Away We Go" click here, and here to visit the film's official website.

In this interview, John Krasinski (Burt Farlander) and I talked about:

His great chemistry with Maya Rudolph (Verona De Tessant)
Why he chose to work on the film
The actor with the most open face hides behind a beard
What he learned as a director from Sam Mendes
Where is home? And why it may be New York?

This is an outtake of my interview with Maya Rudolph for "Away We Go." It's funny! She was talking about Manny Ramirez and steroids in reference to my name. So I said, "Do I look like I'm taking steroids?" Everyone laughed :)

HAVE FUN! :happy
