Malcolm In The Middle Star Fights To Save New Show


Malcolm In The Middle Justin Berfield

Former Malcolm In The Middle star Justin Berfield has launched a new campaign to save his new TV comedy SONS OF TUCSON amid Internet reports suggesting bosses at Fox are planning to scrap the series.

The former child star-turned-producer created the show for executives at his old network after they asked him to come up with a live action comedy, but the show has failed to take off in America and now Fox chiefs are ready to cancel it.

A spokesman for the show tells WENN, "Fox bought Sons of Tucson in the hope of resurrecting the genre for the network and hoped to eventually build out a live action comedy block night. They looked to Justin and the Malcolm creative team to do just this.

"They bought the show to put on at 8.30pm and despite initial audience testing results reporting against it, the network top brass decided to put Sons of Tucson on much later at 9.30pm, which draws a much different, less family audience. How does a family show do during a non-family hour? Well... not good.

Jessica Simpson Nick Lachey Malcolm In The Middle Justin Berfield

Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey's former NEWLYWEDS home is on the market again - current owner and former Malcolm In The Middle star Justin Berfield is selling up.


The actor/producer bought the Calabasas, California home when the pop couple split after filming their reality show in the house.


Speaking to WENN in 2007, Berfield revealed the pad was his dream home long before it became a reality TV den - he first visited the five-bedroom mansion when he was a teenager.


He explained, "I'd actually been to that house about three years before I bought it and I thought it was an amazing house and I only hoped back then that one day I could have a house like this. It just had everything I wanted in a house."

Blonde Ambition Review


Unbearable
Earlier this year, Blonde Ambition made record-breaking headlines. Not for anything good, mind you, but for its opening day box office. One source said the movie logged a whopping 48 paying customers on Friday, earning the film $350 total. By the time the movie was out of theaters altogether, it had made less than $7,000.

Blonde Ambition, alas, ultimately earned substantially more than it deserved. As a star vehicle for Jessica Simpson, produced by her dad (with the aid of seven other producers), it's a rolling disaster from start to finish.

Berry To Play Jewel Thief


Halle Berry Justin Berfield Malcolm In The Middle

LATEST: Halle Berry is slated to play jailed jewel thief DORIS PAYNE in whizz-kid actor-turned-producer Justin Berfield's upcoming biopic WHO IS DORIS PAYNE?
The 21-year-old former Malcolm In The Middle star secured the rights to 76-year-old Payne's life story after meeting the thief in prison. He then commissioned seasoned writer EUNETTA T. BOONE to pen a screenplay.
Payne, who is known as The Grandmother Thief, has spent much of her adult life pulling off some of the biggest gem heists around the globe.
Berfield has yet to confirm if the MovieHole.net reports about Oscar winner Berry are true, but says, "Doris was a jewel thief for six decades and worked all over the world. Doris is a magnificent woman and she's incredibly intelligent.
"Whoever plays her will have to be able to leave the audience with several questions concerning Doris' state of mind. It's a very demanding role."
