Of the many stories that have emerged from Busy Philipps’ memoir This Will Only Hurt a Little, the debacle over the 2007 movie Blades of Glory has perhaps been a little overlooked. But, speaking at Vulture Festival in LA on Saturday, Philipps said having her rightful credit on the film usurped and denied by then boyfriend Craig Cox and his brother Jeff was actually “really traumatic and disastrous”. Philipps said she experienced “PTSD panic” when she first stumbled on a Ne…

‘Busy Tonight’: Late Night Hosts Welcome Busy Philipps to the Club on Night of Her First Show

Colbert, Bee, Kimmel, Andy, and Seth all sent their best to their new colleague.

Sundays are a crowded day for late night TV, but to make her mark on her first episode, Busy Philipps kicked off her new E! talk show “Busy Tonight” with some help from her colleagues.

Putting a pin in any over-competitive atmosphere between her and her fellow network and cable hosts, Philipps capped off the debut episode of “Busy Tonight” with a montage of Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bee, Jimmy Kimmel, and more welcoming her to the fold. (Naturally, a lot of it is delivered in selfie mode, keeping her connected to her wildly popular Instagram stories.)

Meeting with Andy Cohen, Philipps turns the phrase “late night wars” into a pretty good punchline. Late night shows are almost uniformly better when hosts are good actors, so her reaction to “getting flowers” from Seth Meyers bodes well for the future of this new show. The thought of Cohen and Kimmel having both of their gifts on hand, ready to give to the new inductee into the late-night circle is also an amusing thing to think about. (There’s also a nice cameo at the end to tie everything together with a literal bow on top.)

“Busy Tonight” won’t just be running on Sundays against “Last Week Tonight” and Hasan Minhaj’s new show “Patriot Act.” It will also extend through the week, with new episodes airing weekly, Sundays through Wednesdays. In addition to debut guest Mindy Kaling, the first slate of drop-ins on “Busy Tonight” also includes Kristen Bell, Vanessa Hudgens, and talk show Megan Mullally. Philipps’ new show also comes right on the heels of a new memoir called “This Will Only Hurt a Little,” which was released earlier this month.

“Busy Tonight” airs at 10 p.m. on E!

Maggie Gyllenhaal, a producer and star of The Deuce, HBO’s gritty dramatic examination of misogyny, sexual violence and exploitation in the grimy Times Square of the 1970s, says shutting down the show in response to misconduct allegations against co-star James Franco would be “the opposite of the right thing to do.” The Deuce, Gyllenhaal told SiriusXM radio host Sway Calloway yesterday (hear it above), is “about transactional sex.

In Busy Philipps’ memoir This Will Only Hurt a Little, she shares candid stories about her life, but the title isn’t just a title.

Actress Busy Philipps doesn’t mince her words when it comes to describing her former co-star James Franco’s behavior while they filmed the 1999 TV series “Freaks and Geeks.” She says Franco was a “f—ing” bully on set and once shoved her to the ground. In an excerpt from Philipps’ upcoming memoir, “This Will Only Hurt a […]

Busy Philipps Calls Out James Franco for Physically Assaulting Her on ‘Freaks and Geeks’ Set

“He threw me to the ground. Flat on my back. Wind knocked out of me,” Philipps writes in her upcoming memoir.

Busy Philips’ upcoming memoir, “This Will Only Hurt a Little,” includes a passage in which the actress looks back on a physical altercation that took place between James Franco and herself on the set of their comedy-drama television series “Freaks and Geeks.” The book excerpt was first released by Radar Online and has been verified by Yahoo Entertainment.

The physical altercation between Franco and Philips occurred during a “Freaks and Geeks” scene in which Philips’ character had to gently hit Franco’s character in the chest while delivering a line. Franco allegedly broke character and got upset with Philipps after she hit him.

“He grabbed both my arms and screamed in my face, ‘DON’T EVER TOUCH ME AGAIN!’” Philipps writes in the book. “And he threw me to the ground. Flat on my back. Wind knocked out of me.”

Philipps calls Franco a “fucking bully” while discussing the moment on the set. The actress said everybody on set was horrified when he pushed her to the ground and she later told co-star Linda Cardellini about what happened. Cardellini advised Philipps to call her manager and report the incident. According to Philipps, Franco apologized the next day because he was ordered to do so by directors and producers, but he was never formally punished for what occurred.

Philipps’ allegation arrives less than a year after five women accused Franco of sexual misconduct and/or harassment in an article published January 11 by The Los Angeles Times. Franco has remained largely out of the spotlight since the allegations went public. The actor can currently be seen in the second season of HBO’s “The Deuce,” and he has a supporting role in the Coen brothers’ “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs,” opening in theaters and on Netflix November 16.

Philipps’ memoir, “This Will Only Hurt a Little,” is available to purchase October 16. IndieWire has reached out to Franco’s representative for further comment.

Busy Philipps Says She Was Raped at 14: ‘It’s Taken Me 25 Years to Say Those Words’

Busy Philipps took to Instagram on Thursday, as Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her assault accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, to say that she had been raped at age 14.

The “Cougar Town” alum included a photo of herself at age 14 in accompaniment to her message.

“This is me at 14. The age I was raped. It’s taken me 25 years to say those words,” Philipps wrote.

Philipps, 39, added, “I wrote about it in my book. I finally told my parents and sister about it 4 months ago,” presumably referring to her upcoming memoir, “This Will Only Hurt a Little,” which is due out next month.

Philipps went on to reference Ford, saying that she “can’t imagine” what Ford was feeling Thursday.

“Today is the day we are silent no more. All of us. I’m scared to post this,” Philipps wrote. “I can’t imagine what Dr. Ford is feeling right now.”

Each self-contained documentary will explore a topic, headline, or person that became the ground zero for a revolution, change or shift in culture, told by the people who were on the frontlines of the story. “E! True Hollywood Story” is produced by Wilshire Studios.

 

“The Funny Dance Show” (working title)

For more than a year, “Stand Up 2 the Streets” has played to sold-out crowds at the #1 Comedy Club in the country, The Comedy Store. Created and hosted by comedians Justine Marino and Heidi Heaslet, this one-hour format harnesses the conventions and spectacle of dance pop culture found in movies like the wildly popular “Step Up” franchise and TV shows like “So You Think You Can Dance” and “Dancing with the Stars” but with a comedic POV.

In development:

 

“The Twins Project” (working title)

Three vibrant sets of twins all have their sights set on conquering each of their own worlds.

Each week, hopefuls will face challenges that test their physical, mental, and emotional strength – requiring them to give their all if they want to become the next breakthrough female stunt performer. “Wonder Women” is produced by A. Smith & Co. Productions, with Arthur Smith and Toby Gorman serving as executive producers.

Amy Schumer’s ‘I Feel Pretty’ Zips to $1 Million at Thursday Box Office

Amy Schumer’s “I Feel Pretty” earned $1 million at the Thursday box office.

In comparison, Schumer’s “Trainwreck” earned $1.8 million in previews in 2015 before it grossed $30 million in its opening weekend, whereas last year’s “Snatched” grossed $650,000 on Thursday night before opening to $19.5 million. “I Feel Pretty” is aiming for a $13 million to $15 million opening weekend, based on a production budget of $32 million.

“I Feel Pretty” stars Schumer as Renee, who after a head injury during a workout class sees her body in a completely new perspective and has a newfound confidence to live life fearlessly. The film, written and directed by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, also stars Michelle Williams, Emily Ratajkowski, Aidy Bryant, Busy Philipps and Tom Hopper.

“Super Troopers 2” earned $1.35 million from 1,850 locations on Thursday night, with showings starting at 4:20 p.m. To compare, Universal’s “Blockers” earned $1.5 million in previews a couple weeks ago, and had an opening weekend of $20.5 million.

It is the sequel to the cult comedy by Jay Chandrasekhar, which was released in February 2002 and opened to $6.2 million — $9.8 million in today’s dollar.

The sequel is written by and stars the Broken Lizard comedy team, which includes Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske as a group of bumbling Vermont State Troopers. When a border dispute arises between the U.S. and Canada, the group sets up an outpost in the disputed land, and their arrival isn’t welcomed by the Canadians. Brian Cox, Seann William Scott, Lynda Carter, and Rob Lowe also star.

Finally, there’s Codeblack/Lionsgate’s “Traffik,” a thriller written and directed by Deon Taylor that stars Paula Patton as a journalist whose romantic getaway with her boyfriend is shattered after they accidentally come into possession of a phone belonging to a group of sex traffickers. Lionsgate is giving the film a targeted release of around 1,000 screens with a projected opening of $4 million after grossing $225,000 in previews on Thursday.

“A Quiet Place” is looking at a third weekend total in the low $20 million range, with “Rampage” expected to take a 45-50 percent drop and make a second weekend total in the high teens — the film starring Dwayne Johnson earned another 1.9 million on Thursday night for a domestic cumulative of $45.6 million.

‘I Feel Pretty’ Film Review: Amy Schumer Teaches a Despicable Lesson in Self-Love

“I Feel Pretty” makes a lot of sense on paper. After becoming America’s foremost chronicler of female self-esteem issues through her Emmy- and Peabody-winning Comedy Central sketch series, Amy Schumer finally has the chance to give her tortured public persona a happy ending.

An average-looking woman (by Hollywood standards) consumed by the desire to be “undeniably pretty” bonks her head, wakes up believing she’s beautiful and learns that her anxieties about her looks kept her from fully embracing life. Confidence, not conventional beauty, was what she needed all along. Like her commitment-phobia rom-com “Trainwreck,” the project is on brand for Schumer, while softening her edges for a broad audience.

So what went so, so wrong?

Also Read: Amy Schumer and ‘I Feel Pretty’ Tackle Body Image Issues in First Trailer

Written and directed by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein (first-time helmers who penned “How to Be Single,” “The Vow,” and “He’s Just Not That Into You”), “I Feel Pretty” is an honest-to-God fiasco. Virtually every single aspect of this rigidly unfunny comedy is botched, from the characters to the plot, the themes to the core message.

For a long stretch, Michelle Williams threatens to steal the picture, playing the funniest character she’s played in ages. But ultimately she, too, gets lost in the ineptitude that defines this film.

“I Feel Pretty” was clearly adapted for Schumer’s talents, a sensible move so poorly implemented that it ends up being one of the film’s greatest drawbacks. Schumer’s Renee Bennett is supposed to be an everywoman whose insecurities about her appearance are relatable, if extreme.

Also Read: Amy Schumer Claps Back at ‘I Feel Pretty’ Critics: ‘We All Struggle With Self-Esteem’

She works for Lily LeClaire, an upscale makeup company headed by its namesake founder (Lauren Hutton) and her granddaughter Avery (Williams), but Renee is stuck in a basement outpost, forever looking into the Midtown headquarters from the outside. That is, until a cranial injury during SoulCycle has her convinced that she’s attractive enough to go for a receptionist position at the model-filled main office.

We’re meant to identify with Renee as the woman-next-door gaslighted into thinking she’s an ogre. But Renee is also written as a monstrous egomaniac and a painfully basic bitch, two archetypes that Schumer often plays. The script’s tone-deafness reaches a particularly low point when Renee signs up for a grubby bikini contest at a dank bar on a first date, sticks her finger into a stranger’s mouth — and her good-guy plus-one (Rory Scovel, “The House”) finds her wannabe-stripper antics charming and seductive. Self-love and body acceptance have seldom smelled so much like stale beer.

Renee’s proximity to Avery, a sheltered heiress with a chipmunk voice and a heart of gold leads to the discovery that drugstore-makeup-using Long Island native Renee might be a valuable consultant for Lily LeClaire’s upcoming Target line. Williams masterfully parodies the studied fragility of a certain class of New York women, and Schumer excels in the scenes in which she sells Renee’s self-hatred and her jubilation at being “beautiful.”

Also Read: Justin Bieber to Amy Schumer: Stars Throw Their Support Behind #MarchForOurLives

But no other character, including Renee’s love interest and her two undifferentiated friends (Aidy Bryant and Busy Philipps), has any coherent personality at all. And Renee is so shambolically and jaggedly written that, by the time her big realization-cum-monologue arrives, all I wanted was for her to stop talking.

Occasionally, a human moment glints among the muddle. A late moment when a character points out how sad it is that Renee’s “wildest dream” is merely to be pretty is fleeting but wise. But such lines are all too rare, and ostensibly hilarious ones, like when Renee gets called “sir” by some random dude, are much more common. And the scenes where Renee, an adult woman, learns that conventionally attractive women have problems too simply feel condescending.

The movie that “I Feel Pretty” should have been deserves to be made. This version, in which a narcissist learns to love herself as is, feels far less necessary.

The movie that “I Feel Pretty” should have been deserves to be made. This version, in which a narcissist learns to love herself as is, feels far less necessary.

James Van Der Beek: ‘Crying Dawson’ Meme Is My ‘Favorite Thing About the Whole Show’ (Video)

“Dawson’s Creek” was basically the “This Is Us” of the late ’90s and early ’00s. If you weren’t crying your eyes out by the end of an episode we’ll just assume you were dead inside. And that’s mainly because the characters themselves bawled a lot. But only Dawson’s tears had the honor of being turned into one of the most viral memes ever.

“I feel like everybody on this show cried more than I did and I was the one who got caught in the loop!” James Van Der Beek said of a popular “Crying Dawson” meme in a recent cast reunion interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“It’s not how many times you cried. It’s how you cried,” Joshua Jackson, who played Pacey, added.

But it’s cool, cause Van Der Beek knows how to laugh through the tears.

“I love it. It’s my favorite thing about the whole show,” he said, jokingly. “It’s hilarious to me that you can work for six years on a show … and it gets boiled down to three seconds. It’s a perfect way-of-the-internet.”

Michelle Williams had no idea what they were talking about during this interview — so you also get the pleasure of watching her discover the creation for the first time, courtesy of Busy Philipps phone.

‘Dawson’s Creek’ 20th Anniversary: Where Are They Now? (Photos)

They grow up so fast. “Dawson’s Creek,” one of the classic ’90s teen dramas that ran for five seasons from 1998-2003 on The WB, turns 20 this week. And those kids from Capeside have all gone on to bigger and better things. Heck, one of them is a four-time Oscar nominee, and another married Tom Cruise.

James Van Der Beek as Dawson Leery

James Van Der Beek went from teen heartthrob to crying Internet meme to spoofing on Diplo for his new series playing the famed DJ, “What Would Diplo Do?” He’s also starred with Krysten Ritter in “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23.”

Katie Holmes as Joey Potter

One of Katie Holmes’s first post-“Dawson’s” roles was as Rachel Dawes in “Batman Begins,” a stark turn from the show’s soapy charms, but her most recent role is a scene-stealing performance in Steven Soderbergh’s “Logan Lucky,” where she plays a sharp-tongued Southern belle.

Michelle Williams as Jen Lindley

Jen Lindley shook up the creek, and Michelle Williams has since shaken up Hollywood. In 2017 alone she starred in “Wonderstruck,” “The Greatest Showman” and Ridley Scott’s “All the Money in the World” as she hunts for her fifth Oscar nomination.

Joshua Jackson as Pacey Witter

Joshua Jackson moved away from his lovably smart slacker persona with extended turns on the sci-fi series “Fringe” and most recently on Showtime’s “The Affair.”

Kerr Smith as Jack McPhee

Kerr Smith has found another teen drama to lend his name to, having most recently appeared in a recurring role on Freeform’s “The Fosters.”

Mary Beth Peil as Evelyn ‘Grams’ Ryan

Grams hasn’t changed one bit, as she can shoot the same stern look in “The Good Wife” as she did back in the day.

 

John Wesley Shipp as Mitch Leery

After serving as a father and mentor to Dawson, John Wesley Shipp now looks over Barry Allen on “The Flash.”

Busy Philipps as Audrey Liddell

Busy Philipps was a late addition to the cast of “Dawson’s Creek,” but she’s grown right along with the rest of the cast. She had a long stint on “Cougar Town” and most recently appeared in the HBO comedy “Vice Principals.”

Michael Pitt as Henry Parker – “Ghost in the Shell”

Michael Pitt’s Henry Parker was a recurring character in Season 3 as a football star and love interest for Jen, but he really made his bones as Jimmy Darmody in “Boardwalk Empire.” He’s also appeared most recently in “Ghost in the Shell” and the indie “I Origins.”

Chad Michael Murray as Charlie Todd – “One Tree Hill”

Just before he got his own teen drama in “One Tree Hill,” Chad Michael Murray appeared in Season 5 of “Dawson’s Creek” as a womanizing newcomer who dates both Jen and Joey. He most recently appeared on ABC’s “Agent Carter” and CMT’s “Sun Records.”
