How will the character of Jenny fit in?
After ten seasons of Two and A Half Men on CBS, public breakdowns from two-out-of-three of the main cast and a high-profile replacement, Chuck Lorre thinks it’s time to address the plot, just to mix things up a bit.
And considering Two and A Half Men can basically be called Three Men, or Three Half Men depending on your take on the comedy, Lorre reckons a 21-year-old lesbian from the Big Apple should just about do it. It might just have to be called Two Men One Woman, as Angus T. Jones is pretty much out for season 11.
"I think it would be great have that voice on the show from a different perspective," Lorre told reporters at TCA. "The show has had enough testosterone to last a lifetime." Jenny will be Charlie Harper’s – previously played by Charlie Sheen – ‘illegitimate’ daughter.

Thus ends that little bout of drama.
Selma Blair complained in private about Anger Management co-star Charlie Sheen’s ways. Selma Blair got fired from Anger Management. There might just be a pattern there. So, the full story, according to the folks at TMZ, starts with Blair unofficially complaining about her co-star’s work ethic. At some point, Charlie apparently got wind of this and he went straight to the show’s producers. Since Sheen has a stake in the FX show, predicting how this one would play out wasn’t all that difficult at all.
Lo and behold, today an official announcement was released by Lionsgate, the studio behind the show, saying, "We are confirming that Selma Blair will not be returning to Anger Management and we wish her the very best."
The very best, as long as she has nothing to do with Charlie Sheen apparently. This decision is in stark contrast to the policies of Sheen’s former employers – the team behind “Two and a Half Men.” On that show, Sheen, who was the show’s biggest star, earned himself an ultimatum and later on, a firing, with his partying ways and frequent intoxication. Must be nice for him to call the shots for once. It’s not so nice for Blair, though, who is now, presumably, in need of a new job.

Things are heating up on the Anger Management set - and not in a good way
Charlie Sheen is rich and famous enough that he can afford to set his own rules, which is exactly what he’s doing with Anger Management and his co-star Selma Blair. According to TMZ, Sheen has set an ultimatum for the creators of the series – ether she walks, or I do. Looks like he’s being serious as well. The reason behind this sudden rift between Sheen and Blair is that Charlie believes his co-star has been talking about him behind his back.
To prove how serious he is with this, Sheen has given Anger Management producers a somewhat realistic demands. He knows that a character can’t just be kicked off in a matter of days, so he is just asking that the show’s team starts drawing up an exit strategy for Blair asap. If not, Sheen is prepared to sacrifice his massive paycheck (between $75 and $200 million for 100 episodes, depending on syndication) just to get his way.
With that kind of ultimatum, the show’s producers are most likely trapped between a rock and a hard place, but if it really does come down to Blaire or Sheen, the actor’s female co-star isn’t likely to fair too well in that bargain. Meanwhile, she didn’t appear on set, yesterday, but this could be due to her not being scheduled to be on set. When asked by paparazzi about the whole mess, Blair replied with a vague: "I don't know anything." Neither does anyone else, really.

Charlie claims that Blair has been talking about him behind his back and wants to see her given the boot as a result
Charlie Sheen really doesn't get along with his co-star on the FX sitcom Anger Management - the actress Selma Blair - so much so in fact that the actor has reportedly handed the show's producers an ultimatum; wither she goes or he does. According to TMZ, the actor is determined to see Blair get booted form the show and is so bent on seeing the back of her that he is willing to put his own position on the show in jeopardy.
Sheen is apparently feuding with Blair because he heard that the actress is slating him behind his back, and clearly that is something that Sheen doesn't take kindly to. Charlie reportedly confronted the producers on the show and handed them his request, demanding that the changes start on that day or else. Whilst it is unclear whether his demand have been met yet, Blair was absent from the show's set on Monday (June 17) and it is believed that she isn't there today either, although it is unclear whether she was simply not scheduled to work these days. When asked about the situation this morning, Blair replied sying that she doesn't even know what's happening herself.
According to reports, Charlie acknowledged the complications of writing a character out from a show, but was steadfast with his demands and told the show's bosses that they need to figure out a solution to the problem before he starts to reconsider his commitment to AM. Neither the actor nor FX have commented on the situation in public yet, but it is believed that the network are working with Sheen to see that he gets what he wants and Blair is kicked off the show.
With the drama and devastation that befell the East Coast of America, with the arrival of Hurricane Sandy last week, US movie fans seem to have opted for the feel-good factor with their box office choices. Wreck It Ralph currently sits atop the US Box Office chart but the generation-spanning animation should prepare to be ousted this week, with the release of two major players: Skyfall and Lincoln.
Skyfall has already been hailed as the best Bond movie ever. Directed by Sam Mendes, Skyfall marks the 50th anniversary of Bond movies and has already proved to be a box office sensation in the UK and Europe. There’s a question mark hanging over how much longer Daniel Craig will play Bond, which is only adding to the sense of urgency in getting to the movie theaters to check out Skyfall.
Even though he's essentially a pampered slacker, Abe (Gelber) exudes confidence, relentlessly going after the depressed Miranda (Blair) despite her hesitance. Living in the shadow of his successful doctor brother (Bartha), Abe works for his father (Walken), but does virtually nothing and resents the fact that his hard-working cousin (Booth) gets the credit. But then Abe feels hard-done by everyone he encounters, creating an arch-rival in Miranda's ex (Mandvi). But at no point does Abe's inner life come close to the reality around him.

Turns out My Mom's New Boyfriend has some differences with Mama's Boy, though it sticks closely to the overall shoddy quality level. This time out it's not a straight-up case of a son feeling betrayed. Writer/director George Gallo (DysFunktional Family) throws in a crime caper too. Henry (Colin Hanks) hasn't seen Mom (Meg Ryan) in three years due to his undercover duties as an FBI agent. When he returns home with a fiancee (Selma Blair), he finds that Mom hasn't just lost hundreds of pounds, she's also turned into a raving sexual lunatic, too. No sooner has Henry made his old bed than Mom gets mixed up with Tommy (Antonio Banderas), a known art thief... who Henry's been assigned to spy on!

The Fog is a terrible movie. Simply put, it sucks. It should have gone straight to video. No, even that is a better fate. It should have gone directly to the Sci-Fi Channel, the latest repository for "new" terrible films.

Aside from Solondz's decidedly risky topics, his format in Storytelling takes chances. It presents two separate shorts, entitled "Fiction" and "Non-fiction," with no obvious connection between the two. The only true thread is that both comment on the telling of tales, the shifting of points of view, and the way most people in Solondz's suburban landscapes constantly paddle their painful lives upstream.

So goes the curious event that A Guy Thing -- a well-meaning but almost completely worthless trip through a minefield of infidelity, masculinity and self discovery -- is based upon.

Whatever else may be said, this film is the work of consummate professionals, and that doesn't mean it's soulless but competent hackwork. Writer/director Paul Weitz showed with his wonderful, glowing adaptation of Nick Hornby's About a Boy that he could tell heartwarming stories that didn't insult the mind and could inject just enough acidity into a romance to keep a movie from flopping into a messy, Love, Actually-style mess. The directing and writing here are superbly crisp, and one really couldn't ask for better performances, both from the stars and supporting cast.

Jason Lee is usually the funniest guy in any Kevin Smith movie (Banky in "Chasing Amy," Azrael in "Dogma"). Julia Stiles has had fine comedic timing ever since her big splash in "10 Things I Hate About You." But they couldn't be more mismatched as romantic leads in "A Guy Thing."
A cold-feet comedy of accumulative misunderstandings about a groom-to-be who wakes up with a blonde in his bed the morning after his bachelor party -- and assumes the worst -- the movie spends most of its time mining very familiar territory. Lee hides the girl's forgotten panties, discovers she's his fiancée's cousin, and has generic nightmare run-ins with his future in-law and Stiles' ex-boyfriend.
Most of its jokes come from the compounding lies that make it hard to sympathize with the hero, and the moment you meet each one-trait character, you can see his or her entire story arc mapped out in front of you. Example: Stifled Lee, who's going to veer from his buttoned-up, conservative bride-to-be (Selma Blair) and fall in love with wild-child Stiles, has a buttoned-up, conservative brother (Thomas Lennon) who is secretly in love with Blair. Hmmm...I can't imagine where that's going.

Tracey Ullman is so perfectly attuned to John Waters' brand of lasciviously trashy comedy, it's a wonder that she hasn't worked before for the shamelessly silly provocateur.
In the uproarious "A Dirty Shame," the writer-director lets the caustic comedienne cut loose as Sylvia Stickles, a frigid, uptight working-class suburbanite who becomes an insatiable sex maniac after getting bonked on the noggin in a car accident.
After shocking her hitherto frustrated husband (played by singer Chris Isaak) with tongue-wiggling come-ons and liberating her trampy, triple-Z-cup stripper daughter (played with bimbonic irony by real-life A-cup Selma Blair) from the bedroom where she'd been padlocked away "for her own good," Sylvia joins other concussion-born libertines as a disciple of a self-proclaimed sexual evangelist (amusingly uncouth Johnny Knoxville). All of this helps set the stage for an absurdist battle against a band of spitefully self-righteous local prudes for the soul of their Baltimore neighborhood.
