Christoph Waltz, last seen training Jamie Foxx in the ways of bounty hunting in Django Unchained, is joining the cast of Stephen Gaghan’s action thriller Candy Store.
Good Universe and Lionsgate are behind the movie project, which so far has attracted a cast that includes Jason Clarke, Robert De Niro and Omar Sy.
Lionsgate will distribute in North America. Good Universe is handling international sales and presenting the film as part of their slate in Cannes.
The story is set in the criminal underworld of Brooklyn and follows a former operative who discovers the global organization he fought is now in his backyard.
He teams up with a disgraced local cop (De Niro) to investigate, running afoul of an international sex trade entrepreneur (Sy), a Cold War consigliere posing as a typical American suburbanite (Waltz), and a beautiful girl, uncovering a plan to detonate a nuclear bomb in Manhattan.
Gaghan will direct and produce from a script he co-wrote with Shannon Burke. Gaghan is also producing, along with Allison Shearmur.
Good Universe’s Joe Drake, Nathan Kahane and Nicole Brown are executive producing alongside Flashlight Films’ Allyn Stewart and Kipp Nelson.
Good Universe’s Matt Leonetti will co-produce along with Suzanne Joskow.
Waltz is represented by ICM Partners.
i'm sorry but all I can think of is
She has moved on to mammals in the latest of the adorably nutty clips, and demonstrates here how "mamma" hamster deals with too many babies.
Mo'Nique is serious these days about taking care of her health, and in a new radio interview, she's revealing some of the secrets behind her workout routine and new svelte figure.
The 45-year-old actress and comedienne, who won the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award in 2010 for her role in "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire," sat down this week with The Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg Show on New York radio station Hot 97 FM for a long-ranging half-hour interview, in which she discussed topics ranging from Charles Ramsey to Iyanla Vanzant. But the story behind her dramatic weight loss is what's turning heads.
Mo'Nique has been tweeting her daily workouts, most days posting snapshots of her odometer once it has logged her minimum "10,000 steps," along with various other fitness activities. She explained to the show hosts that the reason why she's been documenting her journey is to be an inspiration to others.
"I tweet every morning, my workouts," she began. "Because I want women to see - especially us big women - that you don’t have to let them cut you and suck it out, you don't have to let them staple you up, you don't have to let them give you a pill, you don't have to let them put a band around your organs. If you put the work in, baby, I promise you, it comes off."
And come off, it has! "The weight right now, when I got on a scale two weeks ago, was 218," she continued. "My goal is between 190 and 200."
"What were you before?" co-host K. Foxx then asked Mo'Nique.
"Well now, you see K … what I was before was … when my husband asked me I said, '262,' but I don't actually know if that was the right number. That was the weight that I had a year prior to him asking me that. But when I watch reruns of 'The Parkers,' I know I was tipping 300."
"And how do you feel?" K asked.
"I am the best Mo'Nique I've ever been in my life right now. And I still have a ways to go. But I feel amazing sis."
Mo'Nique added that she's proud of herself and believes she has never looked this good in her life before. And while she emphasizes that she always felt in the past that she was a big and beautiful woman, she says it is her husband who caused her to step back and look at the damage she was causing to her body (due to her weight).
"It made me say (to myself), 'OK sis, you got these babies. The twins are 7, (stepson) Michael's 9, Shalon's 22.' And I want to meet their babies. So, I said, 'Let me stop being selfish, and eating everything.' And I ate everything … I was a food junkie."
And it looks from these pictures like she's doing quite well on her way to recovery!
ABC’s take: “In Astoria, Queens, a group of seven gas station employees have been chipping into a lottery pool for months, never thinking they’d actually win. Money could solve problems for each of them: Matt (Matt Long) could get his girlfriend and two kids out of his mother’s house; Matt’s brother, Nicky (Stephen Louis Grush), an ex-con, could pay off a dangerous debt; Samira (Summer Bishil), a second-generation Pakistani immigrant, could afford to go to Juilliard; Denise (Lorraine Bruce), a plucky cashier, could focus on rebuilding her crumbling marriage; Leanne (Anastasia Phillips), a young mother, could help her daughter realize her dreams; Bob (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.), the store’s manager, could finally retire; and Antonio (Luis Antonio Ramos) could give his wife and kids a whole new life.
“Lucky 7″ stars Isiah Whitlock, Jr. (“The Wire”) as Bob Harris, Matt Long (“Private Practice”) as Matt Korzak, Stephen Louis Grush (“Detroit 1-8-7″) as Nicky Korzak, Lorraine Bruce (“Eden Lake”) as Denise, Anastasia Phillips (“Stoked”) as Leanne, Summer Bishil (“Towelhead”) as Samira Rajpur, Luis Antonio Ramos (“The Ruins”) as Antonio Clemente and Christine Evangelista (“The Joneses”) as Mary.
Written by David Zabel (“ER”) and Jason Richman (“Detroit 1-8-7″), “Lucky 7″ is executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey, David Zabel and Jason Richman. The pilot was directed by Paul McGuigan. “Lucky 7″ is produced by ABC Studios and Amblin Television.”
Erik Reichenbach is not happy. It doesn’t have so much to do with the fact that he had to be medically evacuated from last night’s Survivor: Caramoan finale, but rather that there was no proper explanation as to the injury that led to him being pulled from the game. And he could not give one at the reunion show because he was not even allowed to speak. At least Erik got to sit on the stage. In a Survivor first, anybody voted out before the jury was forced to sit and watch from the audience.

We are now about halfway through the Spring anime season of 2013, and for weeks now I have been bombarded with the question, “What anime should I be watching this season?”
Well, with a good chunk of episodes under my belt from many of the different series, I feel it’s now safe to answer that question.
Now keep in mind, these are the anime that should not be missed this season—but that doesn't mean all the others are objectively bad; it just means that the following five series are a cut above the rest.( Collapse )
If you're not watching this, you really should give it a chance. At least the past few episodes. Tonight's episode and this preview...I have no words.
WARNING: This story contains spoilers from tonight’s Supernatural finale. Don’t read if you haven’t watched.
This season of Supernatural was frequently referred to as season “GR8,” so Wednesday’s finale had a lot to live up to.
So how’d it do? Two words: Holy crap.( Collapse )
