“The instinct is to play to the room, because otherwise the audience there gets really bored and restless. Me with my theater background, I played to the back row of the Kodak, which has 3,500 people. To the people at home, it could come off as a little over-the-top. I’ve never seen it, but I felt like I made a rookie mistake.”
– Anne Hathaway has some Oscar-hosting advice for Seth MacFarlane — based on her own ill-fated hosting stint in 2011.
The universe is collapsing in on itself: Seth MacFarlane is guesting on The Simpsons! He’ll appear next fall in the series’ 25th season premiere.
In the episode, titled “Dangers on a Train,” Marge mistakes an Ashley Madison-type website for a Dolly Madison-type cupcake site, not realizing that it’s a destination for married people to arrange affairs. While on the site, she encounters the charming Ben (MacFarlane), who pursues her as they bond over their mutual love of a Downton Abbey-ish series, Upton Rectory. “A lot of him trying to go after her is over the phone, so it’s a perfect part for someone with his voice,” says Jean, who adds that the smooth-voiced MacFarlane croons “The Way You Look Tonight” in the episode.
The raunchy R-rated comedy co-written and directed by Seth MacFarlane, the creator of Family Guy, far surpassed anyone’s expectations at the box office this weekend. The comedy revolves around John (Mark Wahlberg) and his stuffed bear who was brought to life when he was a child after he wished it could be his friend… However many years later, we find ourselves peeking in on the lives of John, his bear Ted, and his smokin’ hot girlfriend of four years Lori (Mila Kunis).
Personally, I don’t see why not! The movie, having already made $54.1 million, has already surpassed it’s $50 million in production costs in just the first weekend. Why not capitalize on peoples’ love for the bear, Ted? If this article still doesn’t have you convinced to see the movie, I would suggest checking out the R-rated trailer, that gives you a much better idea what the movie is about than the one suitable for the general audiences.Read More
