THINGS ARE LOOKING UP FOR DAVID SPADE

Former SNL comic and Just Shoot Me actor David Spade is not only taking pretty women in tight pants out to dinner at Craig’s, but he’s got a big new job. HBO is developing a half hour comedy series (still untitled) just for him. Spade plays a 90’s grunge musician who lost his career to drugs and is now sober and working as a waiter in the Valley. Along comes a messed up twenty-something actress, and the plot thickens. Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman are writing and directing, so this is a real deal comeback for David.

“THE NIGHT OF” ON HBO WILL BLOW YOU AWAY

Last night we innocently turned to HBO to glance at a new series “The Night Of” – with no particular expectations. We knew Richard Price was one of the writers and he wrote our favorite movie “The Wanderers.” INSTANTLY we were sucked into the story about a young college age guy from Queens – the son of Pakistani immigrants – eager to go to a party in Manhattan. He has one of those magical nights in the city – yes, drugs and a beautiful girl were involved- and he lands in jail, charged with an unspeakable crime. He looks like a deer in the headlights. The viewer cannot help but identify with this innocent character and the nightmare around him. (Isn’t it everybody’s nightmare that they are accused of a crime and sent to prison for something they didn’t do?) The fact that there are no big stars to interrupt makes the story seem even more real. We can’t remember the last time we couldn’t WAIT for episode 2 of anything. Don’t miss this!

JAMES JAGGER: SECOND GENERATION ROCKER

140674PCN_Jagger01cut

James Jagger landed a sweet role in the new HBO untitled “Rock n Roll Project” – it helps when your father Mick is one of the producers. Actually the New York born James, 29, has been modeling and acting for the last 8 or 9 years so he’s not without experience. The 6’1” Jagger (his mother is Jerry Hall) was photographed on the NY set and it looks like his character is stealing a guitar.

HBO’s upcoming rock n roll series (no title yet) is already looking REALLY good. Martin Scorcese and Mick Jagger are producing and it all takes place in swinging 1970’s New York. Bobby Cannavale plays a record executive searching for the next new sound in the glam rock/disco/punk era. Olivia Wilde (above) looks gorgeous as his model wife. Other cast members include Ray Romano, Andrew Dice Clay and Jack Quaid. (Meg Ryan’s son.)

HBO WON’T BE BULLIED BY SCIENTOLOGISTS

21006972

Top Scientologists have no doubt been scheming and laying plans in preparation for an assault against the upcoming HBO Scientology documentary that promises new and juicy revelations about the so-called religion and its followers – including Tom Cruise and John Travolta. No stranger to controversy, HBO commissioned the documentary two years ago – right after the book “Going Clear” was released. The book includes filmmaker Paul Haggis’ experiences as a Scientologist. Producers are already bracing themselves for a legal attack from Scientology lawyers with plenty of legal counsel of their own. According to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO hopes to show the documentary at Sundance and have a 2015 airdate. We can hardly wait!

BACK TO THE 70’S WITH BOBBY CANNAVALE

AG039513_09bobcut

Bobby Cannavale is one of our favorite actors, and he has a starring role in Martin Scorsese’s untitled rock n roll series for HBO that we told you about. It takes place in the 70’s and we are struck by how authentically attired Bobby is. From the fluffy hair with sideburns to the tight shirt and wide leg pants – he’s got the look. That orangey leather jacket is a color truly from the era. Best of all, he has the dark tan that people used sun reflectors to achieve in those days. He really looks like a guy from Brooklyn in 1972.

HBO’S HISTORY OF ROCK N ROLL IN NEW YORK

AG039304_01martcut

Martin Scorsese is directing what looks to be a VERY interesting series pilot for HBO. It’s an untitled rock n roll project that takes place in 1970’s New York (the Max’s Kansas City era.) Punk and disco were both breaking out and Bobby Cannavale (in the car, above) plays a record executive scrambling to resurrect his label with a new sound. Ray Romano is his outspoken co-worker. Lots of drugs, sex, hot clubs, and gangsters – even some Warhol characters. Mick Jagger is one of the producers and his son James has a role in the series. Andrew Dice Clay plays a bad guy. This was a great time in the city – and young people could actually afford to live there!

HBO LURED ANOTHER BIGTIME MOVIE STAR TO TV: ROBERT DENIRO

Another first. Following in Michael Douglas’s footsteps, Robert DeNiro has agreed to star in “Criminal Justice,” a seven episode mini series for HBO. He’s taking the role the late James Gandolfini was originally signed to play. It’s the story of an ambulance chasing personal injury lawyer who finds himself in a heap of trouble when he takes on a murder case. We have a feeling this is going to be really good because it was written by Richard Price, who wrote one of our favorite movies, “The Wanderers.”

BEHIND THE CANDELABRA- “TOO GAY” IS BETTER THAN “NOT GAY ENOUGH”

We wonder if the studio executives who turned DOWN the Liberace story “Behind the Candelabra” (we bet they were men) because they felt it was “too gay” are sorry now that HBO has this great looking Steven Soderbergh movie. The movie, starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, debuts on May 26 and chances are it will be a ratings bonanza.

BEYONCE ONLY SHARES HER PRIVATE LIFE WHEN SHE HAS TO

#beyonce #janetcharlton

Beyonce’s documentary “Life is But a Dream” debuted last night on HBO and her fans love it, the critics, not so much. It has been described as a “calculated vanity project” carefully conceived to drum up publicity for her upcoming tour. We DID get a closer look at the super-private singer’s baby Blue Ivy, however, and Ivy looks more like her daddy Jay-Z every day. In a girly way, of course. She will probably grow to look more like her mother as she gets older.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT
    |

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
