"Lucy and Desi," Aaron Sorkin's feature project about iconic small-screen stars Lucille Ball and her former husband Desi Arnaz, has been acquired by Amazon Studios, according to Deadline. Oscar winner Cate Blanchett has been attached to play the beloved, Emmy-winning comedian in the authorized telling of the sitcom stars' romantic and business partnerships.
Escape Artists and the couple's children, Lucie Luckinbill and Desi Arnaz Jr., will produce the film about the lovable redhead and the Cuban bandleader. The project written by "Moneyball" scribe Sorkin was first announced in 2015 and has been making the rounds since.
If the promise of never-before-seen Prince portraits weren't tempting enough, Afshin Shahidi's "Prince: A Private View" gives you another reason to check it out: a foreword by Beyoncé.
The forthcoming photography book pays tribute to the late pop icon who famously kept his private life exactly that.
Shahidi was a close friend of Prince's for the better part of 20 years and served as his photographer for 10. In the aftermath of his untimely death last year at age 57, Shahidi has unearthed images that showcase Prince in moments both intimate and public.
At least that was Steve Martin's stopgap solution now that his newest play, "Meteor Shower" -- whose earlier productions received mixed reviews -- is headed for Broadway. And reigning comedy queen Amy Schumer is going with it.
The brassy personality behind Comedy Central's "Inside Amy Schumer" will make her Broadway debut in Martin's offbeat, four-person production, which moves to the big leagues in November. "Meteor Shower" is a zany marital comedy that chronicles one bizarre 1993 evening spent watching a meteor shower in Ojai, Calif.
Carly Waddell and Evan Bass, who met during the fourth season of "Bachelor in Paradise" and were married in June, are expecting a baby.
"SECRET IS OUT GUYS!!!!," she said Sunday on Instagram, after issuing a statement to People. "Evan and I are SO EXCITED to announce we are HAVING A BABY!!! What a beautiful, wonderful, wild year it has been and the adventure continues Feb 2018!"
Bass, 34, already has three boys from a previous marriage: Nathan, Liam and Ensley. He and Waddell, 31, told E! News in April that they planned to have kids, with her saying they'd keep trying until they had a girl.
In the battle of CNN reporter Jim Acosta versus White House advisor Stephen Miller, let it be known that John Oliver is firmly Team Acosta.
Or, to be more accurate, he's really, really anti-Miller. On Sunday's episode of "Last Week Tonight," the comedian devoted several minutes to skewering the Duke graduate, noting his resemblance to a "vitamin D-deficient minion."
Miller was in the news this week following a heated exchange with Acosta, who asked him to defend a strict new immigration proposal in light of the poem by Emma Lazarus inscribed on the Statue of Liberty. Miller argued that since the words -- "give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free" -- were added later, they were irrelevant.
If the last few days have been any indication, Aaron Carter is really feelin' himself. Could it be his newly revealed singlehood? His recent admission about his sexuality? His washboard abs? Perhaps all of the above?
Following a rough month in which the 29-year-old singer was arrested on suspicion of DUI, Carter took to Twitter late Sunday night to share a black-and-white, shirtless selfie with his 624,000 followers.
It's been quite an eventful weekend for Carter. On Saturday, the '90s pop star came out as bisexual in a candid, emotional message via Twitter. Big news, considering he's just about to clock in at 20 years in the public eye.
Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood has opened up about his lung cancer scare and how he spared his iconic mullet in the process.
"There was a week when everything hung in the balance and it could have been curtains -- time to say goodbye. You never know what is going to happen," the 70-year-old English rocker told the the U.K.'s Mail on Sunday.
Nicknamed "Reckless Ronnie" for his years of hard partying, the musician said his doctor discovered he had lung cancer last May during a routine health check ahead of the Stones' European tour in September. After examining his heart, lungs and blood, they found a cancerous lesion -- "this supernova burning away on my left lung" -- and he underwent a five-hour operation to remove it.
A throwback to a simpler era of family sitcoms, "The Middle" on ABC plowed the heartland long before it was fashionable.
The family comedy about life in the middle of the country has toiled in the shadows of flashier shows set in big cities like "Modern Family." But now, just as red states have gained cultural and political cache, the oh-so ordinary (and apolitical) Heck family of the fictional small town of Orson, Ind., is stepping off the stage.
ABC will air the ninth and final season of "The Middle," beginning in October, giving viewers the opportunity to say a leisurely goodbye to Frankie, Mike, Sue, Axl and Brick Heck.
